Where, however, a given course of
a . tion not only satisfies responsibility
to both stockholders and the public,
but is of si'ch a nature that failure to
ollow'it could rightfully be treated as
a violation cf duty to both, ve feel
forced to adopt that course.
"Waiving any rights of any nature
whatsoever which stockholders may
have, it seems to us that we could not
carry out our obligations to the pub
lic by permitting your HarDor to in
sist upon its dejnands. The negligence
of a master cr of a mate, resulting in
damage to person or property, is in
law attributable to the company.
"The same negligence, resulting in
poor public service, is by the public
attributable to the company. For in
jury, either to a particular individual
or to the public generally, the com
pany, and the company alon&j is held
responsible. It must follow that when
the company waives its right to select
ihe agents by whom alone its duty to
both individuals and the public can
be carried out. the public would have
righteous cause for complaint.
"Feeling thus, we cannot yield to
the demand made, and therefore re
fuse to enter into any such agreement
as is proposed.
"On the part of the company, this is
not intended as a contest with the
principles of organized labor, with
which we are thoroughly acquainted,
and for which we have great respect.
It is a protest against a demand which
seems to us to be highly unreasonable,
as well and inconsistent with the spirit
of fairness usually prevailing amongst
men, organized or unorganized, pos
sessing the intelligence required of li
censed masters and mates.
"If, after learning the attitude of
our company as set forth herein, you
should desire a conference, our board
will gladly appoint a committee to
meet a committee of your Harbor.

ernor Wilson when conferring wUh
him at Trenton. It is true the President-elect
would like to see the sen
ate progressive, but he does not desire
to see it divided into two hostile
camps within his own party and all
the usefulness of the Democrats de
stroyed. Rule of Seniority Knocked
it is now admitted that the rule of
seuiority in awarding important com,
mittee places in the senate will be
knocKed into a cocked uat when the
Democrats take control of the upper
branch of congress after March 4
next To the plan of campaign which
has been pretty well defined, it is
claimed, twenty-eight Democratic
senators will give their support. This
is more than a majority of the
forty-nine Democrats who are expect
ed to have seats in the next senate,
and -will, therefore, enable the pro
gressives to rule the Democratic
caucus.
If the Progressives put through
their plans in the Democratic caucus
those opposed must either accept or
in effect bolt the caucus. At the be
ginning of Democratic control of con
gress for the first time in almost a
score of years, it is not believed that
any number of Democratic senators
will go so far as to refuse to vote in
the senate to uphold a program
adopted by the party caucus.
The program of the progressive
democrats to take away from the
veteran senators the power to which
they would be entitled under the long
established rule of seniority has been
well defined during recent confer
ences, and, the progressives claim, the
pledge of a majority of the Democrats
in the next senate has been obtained
for it.
Upon three propositions it is under
stood that the progressives are in ac
cord. These are:
First The Democratic caucus is to
choose the committee on committees,
which elects the membership of al.'
committees, instead of having it ap
pointed by tho chairman of the caucuc
