WOULD FORESTALL CONGRESS.
Said To Ec Pennsylvania's Plan in
Buying 9. & W. Control.
The report* from Philadelphia published
In The Tribune yesterday that the Penn
sylvania Railroad Company had acquired a
majority of the SB9.OOMOG cap'tal stock of
the Norfolk & Western Railway Company
was said in vrell informed quarters in this
rftr to be true. The additional stock nec
essary to give it a majority, it was said,
had been acquired both . thrcugh private
sale and br purchase :n the open market.
Tr.e reported action of the Pennsylvania
in buying actual control of the Norfolk &
Western is similar to that of the Union
Pacific Railroad Company, in recently add
ing to its holdings of Southern Pacific
stock so as to clinch control of that "com
pany. This act on of the Pennsylvania and
of the Union Pacific has bee.n taken, it is
believed, to anticipation of the passage of
the bill now before Congress forbidding a
rai'road corporation from purchasing stock
in a competing l:r.e in which it owns less
than 51 per cent of the outstanding capi

York, New Haven Sz Hartford Railroad,
which were turned down by General, Man

if granted would have cost considerably
more than $1,000,000 a year.
In the opinion of the higher officers of
the railroad company, however, it is not
regarded in any. event that there ill be
a. strike. There Is practically no doubt that
no matter what may be the results on
other Dads, the New Haven company will
grant some concessions.

LINER'S EXTRA FA RE
The Maurctania in After Her
The difficult problem of getting: gratis a
round trip between Europe and America
in the cabin of a lirst class liner has been
solved. Thomas Martin, a veteran pilot of
Queenstown, put the Q. E. D. after the
solution' on his arrival yesterday on the
Cunarder Mauretar.ia. For years men and
women on both sides of the Atlantic have
pondered over and attempted many schemes
for aretting a free trip across the ocean.
Thote who have managed to get -aboard
and prevent discovery until well, out; at
sea ■ have arrived at their destinations
either as coal trimmers or potato pealers. .
Thomas Martin, the ■ Queenstown pilot,
came over in the first cabin" of the Maure
tania as a passenger, and he will have the
same accommodations going back': to
Ireland. His recipe for getting a free trip
is: "Learn to become a pilot; pick out a
good ship to take into Queenstorvn, and
then pray for bad weather."
"The, Mauretar.ia, which left Liverpool on
Saturday evening at 5:30 o'clock, got off
the Irish coast, where she was to take the
mails, in a terrific gale. Captain Turner
said it was. the worst weather he had en
countered since he had been on the Liver
pool -and New York run. The big liner came
eft Queenstown at 3:57 a. m. Sunday, and
for eight hours she battled with wind and
wave in an effort to take on the"passengers
and mails there. : While hauling iivon her
port anchor one of the huge links snapped
ar.d an expensive anchor and fifteen
fathoms of chain rested firmly over the
locker of the late "Mr. David Jone;. Captain
Turner, manoeuvred carefully after this
rrfishap and drove the big turbine flyer into
the storm and headed for the open- sea. ,'.
Martin, the pilot, was on the bridge when
s>e passed Dauhfs Rock, and he prepared
to leave the ship* for the pilot boat, but
Captain Turner said "nay." Mr. Martin
d.ldn't, like the idea of coming .to New
York.. He had. been. out in bad weather be
fore, and didn't see why he couldn't just
drop, over the side and get back to Queens
town. •■ ' •• '-
"Man alive," said .Captain Turner, "you
iculdn't ,be lowered in weather like this.
T!.e -safest thing for you to do is. to come
on- to Xew York with us. In fact, you will
have to come.".
T:\3T settled it. Martin became resigned
and then contemplated the changes that
surely must have taken place in New York
since just such a storm as this, over a
score of years ago, had made him an un
willing passenger on the old Cunarder
wa? Martin's fifth free trip to New
York credited to the account of '•Storm. '
The veteran pilot mingled with the passen
gers and spun yarns of the deep, but if
e.:-ssip be true he became seasick later and
kept in his stateroom. This he denied yes
terday and seemed content when he heard
that the storm had forced the steamship
Haverford to carry her pilot across the At
lantic to Philadelphia.
The passage of the Maureiania was a
stormy one throughout. At times she could
run only at half speed, and from Sunday at
3:25 p. m. to noon en Monday she logged
oniy three hundred miles. In mid-Atlantic
her bridge was hit by two great walls of
water which smashed seven thick windows
in the chart room. Several liieboats wers
loosed from her chocks and the jackstant
was snapped off by a big following sea.

come and says ' she is glad the suspens-e ■is
