At a recent hearing before the Railroad Commissioners a petition was presented by City Solicitor Pevy '74 and other prominent citizens of Cambridge. President Eliot was among those who spoke in favor of the petition. Another hearing will be given to the petitioners on December 21.
A decided effort is being made by a number of prominent Cambridge citizens to induce the West End Railroad to provide better accommodations for its passengers at the Harvard square transfer station. Although more passengers are transferred there daily than at almost any other point in the West End system, only one small room has been provided; and the constant overflow of passengers into the street which necessarily results is alike an inconvenience to passengers and a disturbance to traffic.
