SENATOR SMITH BETTER WASHINGTON, Feb. 18.—The condi tion of Senator William Alden Smith of Michigan 13 improved today. SPEED OF CARS IS PROBED BY BOARD PUBLIC HEARING ON SUBJECT WILL BE HELD Absence of Signals at Pacific Electric Road and Street Intersections Cause of Four Deaths, Is Statement Made The matter of regulating the speed of electric cars in the city limits, which was brought to the attention of the city counciTby a petition from the Sixth Ward Improvement association complaining of the reckless disregard by the Pacific Electric company of the speed ordinahce on its Long Bearh and Watts lines, was taken under ad viiement yesterday afternoon by the board of public utilities, to which the petition was referred for a public hear ing and investigation. Citizens living on the Long Beach line near the Ver non crossing, J. McMillan, general man ager of the Pacific Electric company, and Samuel Haskins, its attorney, Los lie Hewitt, city attorney, and J. W. Shenk, assistant city attorney, were present, besides members of the board of public utilities. The petition, which is in the form of a complaint by the improvement as socaltion of the violation of the speed ordinances of the city by the Pacific Electric company, states that by rea son of that violation and the failure to establish gates, signals and watchmen at the most dangerous crossings the company has forfeited Its franchise. It is also stated in the petition that four deaths have been caused in the last six months, due to the absence of signals at the different intersections of streets and the terrilic rate of speed maintained by the cars on the Long Beach and interurban lines of the Pa cific Electric. A letter from the elty attorney to the commission was read, informing that body of the speed specified in the ordinance which curs should maintain in different parts of the city. It is the suggestion of the city .attorney that if a new speed ordinance is dra \vn a clause be inserted that in ease of the failure of the companies to obey it they be criminally prosecuted for each violation. Company Officials Appear K. L. Blabon, president of the Sixth Ward Improvement association, and Sperry Baker, secretary, presented their side of the question. J. McMillan, general manager of the Pacific "Electric company, in speaking of the affairs, stated the company was willing to do whatever the commission tuggefted, "We placed bells at different crossings in Los Angeles and Pasadena and we were forced to take them down because of the complaints of those living near the bells that they were annoyed by the constant ringing. If the commis sion finds it is necessary that we should place watchmen at the different Intersections we will do that. We have as much regard for the lives of persons as any one and we do not take pleasure In killing people. But the question of rapid transit is the main question to be considered. Those living in the beach towns want to get to Los Angeles as quickly as possible. If we are com- 1 polled to slow down to eight miles an hour at every street crossing, which is now the ordinance, we will not be able to give thoso living outside of the city the service they demand." Fred Sitherland, 1748 East Forty-sixth street, told of several occasions on which he has rescued several persons from being run down by the cars on that line, which he said were going at least sixty miles an hour and which approached the crossings without sig naling. After hearing both sides of the ques : tion the commission decided to take the matter under advisement and make a report later. The board of public utilities has been giving much attention to the matter of protection at the dangerous railroad crossings throughout the city. It was by the advice of the board that the council passed the ordinance compelling the placing of bells and gates at Aliso street on both sides of the river. W. F. Sloan, telephone engineer for the railroad commission of Wisconsin, lias been chosen by the public utilities board to aid in local work. Sloan, who is considered a most competent man in his profession, will leave for Los An geles February 24, and will remain here sixty or ninety days.
