MORE STREET CARS NEEDED.
Sunday Trafflo IsNeghcttd cn ths South
Eldi Street Hallway.
It was ii foolish move to take off one
of the cars from the South Side line on
BuudHy, because there Is every evidence
that thtt trnflic is heavier on Sunday
than on any otner day of the week,
There is mnch dissatisfaction axpressed
by passengers who are compelled to
wait five minutes longer for a oar, and
when It does come, the way the ear is
crowded .forces one-fourth of tbe pas
sengers to hang on to tbe strspa.
The result is that many perfor to
walk, and expressions of disgust are
frequently heard. There Is another
mailer that needs attention from the
Traction company, and that is the
repair of tbe track. Unless something
Is done before sloppy weather tbe cars
will be running In tbe mad.
