(Reprinted from the Boston Post, Dec. 3.
In response to k request for his opinion on the report of the New Hampshire
Public Service Commission, which was made public earlier in the day, President Charles
S. Mellen said:
"I have not had an opportunity to read the very voluminous report just
submitted by the commission, and so I am not prepared to discuss the recommendations
of the commission.
"I have noticed, however, certain things in the report which are exceedingly
gratifying, especially at this time, when there seems to be a renewal of the statements
that the New Haven has not dealt fairly with the Boston & Maine, and a general
agitation started against the New England railroad lines, which by false charges against
the integrity of the management might become demoralizing to the railroad organization
and harmful to the entire transportation and business interests of New England.
"It should be remembered that the Public Service Commission of New Hampshire
thas been investigating all matters relating to the Boston & Maine railroad and its control
by the New Haven railroad for more than a year and has probed into every feature of
"On the question of the effect of New Haven control the following statements
Particular attention was devoted to the division of joint rates enjoyed by the Boston & Maine rail
road and to the gateways of exchange on joint business with other carriera, and especially with the New Haven
company, to determine whether full advantage and fair treatment wa being obtained by the Boston A Main
railroad in those caies where it had the right to protect its long haul business and revenues.
The result of these inveatigationi, it should be conceded, indicates that the acts of the New Haven
company, since its dominant control, offer little ground for criticism in this particular, aa it appears that where
new joint rates have been established the bails of division i substantially that of a strict mileage proportion, or
where change in the routei have been inaugurated between the two systems, resulting in a shorter haul for the
Boston & Maine, that the old division have been continued through the new gateways of interchange, and the
Boston & Maine has suffered no diminution of revenues,
"In the light of charges which are being loosely made as to coal contracts and
other purchases, the following statement is particularly significant:
. . ... Special attention was given by the commission to the contract for coal supply, and although it
developed there was a close interlocking relation between those interested in the Virginia Iron, Coal & Coke Com
pany, the Keystone toal Company and the New York. New Haven & Hartford Railroad or its officer!, and that these
two coal companies together held contract, for 1,080,000 ton of the 1,500,000 tons needed to supply the Boston
& Maine Railroad . annual requirement., it appeared from tho be.t outside information obtainable from those
' pany " bu,,ne" that both tho termB Bnd Pricel were -vantageou. and favorable to the railroad com"
"The report further continues: 'In general, however, it was found that all efforts
by those in immediate control of purchases were being bent to secure the best and most
economical results, and especially is this true at the present time.1 "
I S2 x, irSA i ST
It Is as .though Mr. Beach should say
to the visitor In his sculpture1 "! bes
tlevu thus and to with all my heart,
nnd I huvo striven to express what I

ful abpect of everything Unit Mr. Beach
has done, In such n composition as
"Life's Vortex." with Its whirling spiral
of ascending llguics. poignant with
human aspiration and laden too with
experience than In the qulle delightful
little head of a babv, "Two Days Old,"
Willi Its puffy cheeks. Its soft and pli
able temples, Its look of uneoriijclous-
iiph In tho .sleeping face and Its useless
I'ttte arms, lying haphazard. It would
seem, besldo It. And everywhere In the
room, even to tlin little bronze figures
designed th be used as se.ils, this au

of purpose and of execution, Join to
henrlen and stlniula'o the ob-erver.
The variety of what Mr. Ucach has
done Is another testimony of tho for
tunate! lack of formula, to the avoidance
of a set method of utterance. In some
of these figures tho surface has been
refined to tho utmost, In others there
baa been u comparative roughness of
treatment appropriate to the theme or
to the general uspect of the composi
tion. The detnlled and decisive mod
elling of his male figure "Achievement,"
with Its powerful pose, standing behind
a ruck with hands resting upon It and
head upraised, Is wholly In character,
Kqually so Is tho simplification of the
wave surface In tho stirringly rhythmic
arrangement of plunging animate and
leaping waters. "Wavo Horses." The
Idea has within the limits of the sculp
tor's versatility dictated not only the
form but the treatment of texture nnd
the orrangement of light and shade.
Mr. Hench has, In fact, a good deal ef
what Iho translators of the famous
"Six Canons" of Ilsleh Ho, a Chinese
artist and critic of fourteen hundred
years ugo, have called "rhythmlo
vitality" or "spiritual rhythm expressed
In the movement of life." This Is the
version used by Laurence BlnyorvAhe dis
tinguished Kngllah art critic, In his bookn
on Eastern art, and presumably also In
the lectures he Is now giving on this
subject In America. Most of what Mr.
Ucach shows has this subtle response
to the general rhythm of things. Ills
Ilgurea seem to be moving In time or In
tune with vlbratloua within th ob-
"5rver' ,. uk
Look again at "Wave Horses, with
11b ordered disorder of struggle und
exultation. I la Joyous Identity of move
ment between the beasts and the ele
ment of which they are, for the mo
ment, the efflorescence, rind It again
in Uie subdued yet perceptible beat of
the lovely and appealing figure "Be
yond." Beok it. not In vain, in the orig
inal composition of Mr. Beach's "In
the Woods Fountain." with its curi
ously pyramided nhapo of a crouching
nymph, above the head of a I'an, one
of the most personal examples of this
sculptor's art. AJid you cannot escape
It In the arresting figure, stepping forth
with her attention fixed upon tho preci
ous element she Is guarding with
shielding hand spread before the jituto
she carries "Sacred 1'lre." Half con
sciously you will move with these ex
presslvo figures; you will feel the In
Iluenco of their accord with the gen
eral rhythm mid pulse of your own
Again, tho visitor will hardly fall to
note and enjoy the absence of striving,
of Imperfectly contrived articulation, In
this artist's handling of his subjects.
The upward Impulse of the group of
smull llgures In "Life's Vortex" Is
sweeping and It carries the observer
