"Nobody seems to be much Impressed In

one unfamiliar with tho raid could ever tell
whore tho bombs strike.
"London Is serious, notwithstanding tho

to fear the Zeppelins. The resignation of
the Ilrltlsh Cabinet and tho selection of
Lloyd Cleorgo have .been expected for some
tlmo Tho people look for better things
under tho new government.
'Tho theatres and music halls nro tho
gayest places In tho city. They nro open

Mr. Uartol pointed out that thero were
only fifteen cities In tho United States that
do a larger business than the Hourae post
office station, which Is connected by pneu
matic tubes with tho main post office and
Mr. Thompson explained to the com
mittee that tho pneumntlo tubes made pos.
alble the ndvnncc of certain clearings so
that they aro effective n day earlier, thus
saving two per cent. The amount of such
transactions Is based on from 120,000.000 to
J30.000.00fi, which would mnke a total loss
of more fban $1100 n day If tho present
mnll connections wero not made. It Is as
serted they cannot be mndo by automobile.
Captain Mills, of tho traffic squad, as
scrted that he wns opposed to any service
highway for speed.'
Captain Mills opposed tho use of motor
enrs, because of tho great danger to
pedestrians. He said that tha use of motor
cars between the stations, tho central post
office nnd tho Ilourso would pass through
tho most congested section of tho city,
where the pedestrians wero estimated a
between 3000 and 7000 an hour. He ,t.
dared that there had been 115 deaths In
inunucipnia Hinco inst January from nuto
mobllo collisions. Thero have been thirty
eight collisions with United States mall
