LATIMER BECOMES CHAuR.MA.
Death of Senator Mallory Puts Him
at Head of Senate Com
Through the death of Senator Mal
lory, of Florida, who was chairman of
the senate comm1ittee on corporations
in the DisLict of Columbia, Sout'1
Carolina. gets another chairmanship,
this place going to Senator ILatimer.
The junior senator from South Car
olina is now the ranking .1emocratic
member of the committee, and, as
stated, goes to the head of the com
mittee through the death of Senator
This is probably the only commiit
tee in the senate which the republi
cans give to the democrats by allow
ing them to name one of their numb-:
as its chairman, and while it is not
considered of any great importance
to be its head. it means something
for a man of energy for the reason
that through it a considerable amount
of legitimate advertising may be
It is not expected that as the chair
man of the new committc, Senator
Latimer .vill revolutionize the corpor
ations of the District of Columbia, or
disclose any startling sensations. The
best that can be done is to watch the
public franchises of the distriet, ths
street railroads, electric light com
panies, water companies, gas works
and other public utilities.
For many years the people of
Washington have begged piteously
for relief from the heavy assess
ments levied against them by public
corporations operating in the district,
especially the gas company, from
whose clutehes they are now making
a hard fight to escape. It may be
possible for Senator Latir er, through
the means of the corporation chair
manship, to put an end to legalized
Another way in which the influence
of the junior senator may be felt is
in the operation and control of the
street ear lines of Washington.
Throughout the United States ther.
is probably not as poor i system of
public transportation lines as is
found in the nation's capital. There
is big room for improvement with
them, and apparently there is an op
portunity for Senator Latimer to
come to the fronit in demanding bet
ter care of the travelling public.
-With the rise of Senator Lalimer
to the head of the corporallions com
mittee of the distriet, South Carolina
gets two representatives closely iden
tified with its interest's, Representa
tive Wyatt Aiken, of Aibbeville, being
on the committee of the District of
Columxbia in the house.
