Strictures on Congress and
Conditions to Which No Other
Civilized Community Would Sub

The Taltoma Tark CitUetiB Association
held a large and enthusiastic meeting last
night in Takoma Park Hall in the course
of uhlch the Washington Traction Com
pany and the National Government came
in for a large amount of spirited comment
The meeting was presided over by Pres
ident Klcnenr It had been expected that
Representative George A Pearre of Mary
land Kould deliver the address of the
evening but he si unavoidably detained
He sent a letter of regret which was read
b Mr B H Warner who then took the
floor to discuss the question of suburban j
ttreet railway transportation as exempli
fied by the Washington Traction Company
JVo Other Cl Would illimlt
Mr Warner declared that no city In all
the North would submit to the treatment
which the suburbs of Washington have re
ceived at the hands of the traction com
pany In no other city he iald are the
transportation facilities as wretched as
they were In Washington In other cities
there were more cars operated and there
was a better schedule and a more accom
modating spirit exhibited by the street
railway companies
He thought that one great reason for
the shabby treatment of Washington by
the street rallwavs was the form of gov
ernment The people did not govrn them
selves the road to redress va long and
tortuous and the men to whom they had
to appeal wrro frequent from far dis
tant cities and Slates who could not be
expected to undrrstand local conditions or
sympathize with local grievances
But the citizens must do the best the
could with what they had Much could be
accomplished by organization and by
working together and appealing in force
A Couiitrj Tm u
United States Attorney Gould followed
Mr Warner In much the same tenor He
ald he had but recently made a trip
through Massachusetts and he found that

According to the people at the Inglesidc
Mr Iresley had been drinking heavily
since Thanksgiving Day He has not
worked since last Tuesday the day the
Dennis assault occurred complaining to
that the Traction Company gave for its i the foreman at the Government Printing
rioor service for it didnt have the m
Jo uphold It was that the vves not
bufilclenlly patronized to admit of the im
provements asked and that a better ser
vice would not pay
ftlMMMlOOO Miirlli r VVnlT
Sir Warner said that an one who had
half an eye could see that the patronage
was- sufficient for the maintcnanco of a
first class service but it was not to be
i xpecjed that it would turnish dividends
or 112000000 of Mod that was purer
water than the average citizen got
a chance to drink Somebody profited by
lbs twelve millions excess of capital and
now they were evmandlug as much divi
dend 03 this water as If it were real
But th people who used the road and
who paid the fares that went toward pay
ing the dividends on this MZOOOOOO of
water should not be made to sutler They
were entitled to a good service to pleny
of cars and to a schedule that wt s a
and not n puzzle picture
Prof Hooper offered a resolrtloa which
was unanimously adopted declaring that
Congren should be asked to tou pel the
company to provide a better service more
tars and a better schedule

seemly undignified and out of order
while Senator Keezell declared lhat it was

the city council tonight calling upon the

Department to expunge from the records
the findings of the Svlicy Court tf En
The resolution was adopted by unani

branch however It was met with decided
opposition Major Venablc the Demo

believed Schley had been persecuted but
after reading the evidence he thought the
findings were in keeping therewith
I was n soldier for four years he
said and I know what It is to reeelve
orders and obey them The court was
composed of navy men and they know
what It is to obey The people arc not
properly trained to measure military slt

Into a legislative bodv is out of place It
is overturning the fundamental conception
of the government of this country for a

The resolution which Went to the Com

Resolved by the Senate and House

It Is not believed that the Republicans

the Navy Department vvlirtshc any ac

be compelled to do so which Is an un
likely thing they would cither report un
favorably or amend it so as to Include
first the name of Rear Admiral Sampson
Should the committee remain In posses
sion of the resolution for an unreasonable
length of time without taking action upon
It It would bo possible for Senator Jones
to move lhat the Senate proceed to Its
consideration Indcrthcse circumstances
It Is believed that even the Republican
frleuds of Schley would vote against the
motion on the ground tint It would be a
discourtesy to the committee Such ac
tion would make it a party question
which is Just what Admiral
friends In nnd out of Congress desire to
avoid If possible

Naval circles arc reported somewhat
amused over the decision of Admiral
Schley and his advisers to have Repre

While on the face of it Spaldings decla

appear to be satisfactory proof that the

two Institutions
The Georgetown athletic advtnry board
met yesterday and It was unanimously
agreed to break sporting bonds with Vir
ginia Not a small factor in determining
the Blue and Grey to take this course was
the statement made In Topics the Uni
versity of Virginia paper recently that
victory In Iho football game with George
town on November 16 could hardly have
been expected because the Georgetown
players were sprinkled with holy water
before they entered the contest

Mr Thompson In discussing the action
Of course the slur on our religion was
the immediate cause but it was not the
only one Allegations were also made
that the Georgetown team was undo up of
men whose right to play was questionable
It was complained that Georgetown was
Persistent rumors have floated to
Georgetown to the effect that Virginia
was contemplating breaking off sporting
relations with Georgetown The csciu
tivc committee on athletics of George
town University came to the conclusion
that Georgetown was well situated to take
the Initiative If athletic relations were to
be severed and the letter sent today is
the result
The step was taken only after mature
deliberation It Involved the sacrifice ot
n big football game every jar the great
est event of the football season In Wash
ington but Georgetown ts willing to risk
the loss No games will hereafter be ar
ranged before the two universities come
to an amicable agreement which will pre
vent in the future any complications sim
ilar to the ono whleh has caused the
Committees Which Acted
The executive committee which hs
tken the step resulting in the atbUtie
break ot the two colleges consists of
