John Burns Predicts It Under Mu

LONDON, Feb. 24.-(Special.)-The value
of municipal ownership of London's
street railways Is shown by the prophecy
of John Burns, minister of local govern
ment, that a universal fare on a 1-penny
basis may be established within five years.
This reform, following 'New York's ex
ample, but Riving a much cheaper serv
ice. Is believed to be quite feasible, as it
has been shown that the vast majority of
streetcar passengers only pay penny fares,
and yet the service yields a handsome
The present system of fares is charging
the passenger according to distance, up to
8 or 10 cents for the whole journey, but
It is thought that a maximum penny fare
with half-penny stages would be as profit
able as the inland penny postage.
Two hundred million passengers were
carried by London's municipal streetcars
last year, and the average fare paid was
a fraction under a penny.

had committed suicide".

agents of the Terrorist organization,
while others maintain that he made him

Merit in Consular Service.
John B. Osborne in Atlantic Monthly.
There has been established in the State
Department an efficiency record of all
consular officers, which is made up from
all sources of information available to
the department. In the determination of
the relative efficiency of each officer, the
ability, promptness and willingness dis
played by him in the performance of all
his official duties, his personal conduct
while in office and the character of his
trade reports are all made a matter of
permanent record. This new efficiency
record is consulted by the Secretary of
State and brought to the attention of the
President In determining questions of pro
motion, transfer and retention in office;
and thus, with simple machinery, the Sec
retary has vitalized the new legislation
with the spirit of the merit features
which were dropped in the course of en
actment. This new policy has been fur
