KOTH STREET AND 3RD AVENUE
MIDI-RICK W. WHITRIDQC. PrtMIDINT NEW YORK
Honorable CHARLES S. WHITMAN,
Executive Mansion, Albany, N. Y.
I was yesterday, August Hist, shown a copy of letter
addressed to you by the Hon. Oscar S. Straus, dated Au
gust 10th, giving an account of the activities of the Public
Service Commission during the previous month and say
ing that that Commission had learned important lessons
which they hoped to utilize for imposing further legisla
tion. This letter is largely taken up with a discussion about
me and what I have done and left undone.
The Commission have not hesitated to say that :
"There can be no question that the strike on the Yonkers
anil Westchester lines and the events which followed in the
train of this strike, including the strike on the other branches
of the Third Avenue Railroad and the threatened difficulties
with the lines of other companies throughout the City, came
about as the immediate nnti logical result of the attitude of
Frederick W. Whitridge, President of the Third Avenue Rail
road, and the actions he took in the matter prove conclusively
thnt he either intentionally violated the agreement he hail
made with the men tn arbitrate and which he was in honor
bound to keep, or thnt he was so negligent in his duties to
his stockholders, his employees and the public, us to forget
entirely this importunt agreement."
The notion that I had the power to loose or bind the
forces of destruction and disorder, which have broken out
in this country within the last few weeks, even though I
had been here, instead of four thousand miles away, in
nufliciently absurd on the face of it, but in consequence of
the declaration I have quoted, some of the newspapers
and some of the public have got it into their heads that I
hi'.ve deliberately violated a contract or agreement to ar
bitrate all the diirerences with my employees. That is an
odious charge. I resent it and it is not true. I say to you
that I have never made any such agreement, that no such
agreement now is or ever was in existence, and nobody,
so far as I know, ever pretended that any such agreement
did in fact exist down to the time of this declaration of
the Public Service Commission. In the absence of any
formal agreement, which the Commission did not dare
even in my absence to allege, they produced a stenog
rapher's report of a conference, which I had with Mr. B.
F. Stevens, Chairman of the Public Service Commission
of the Second District in 191:., and undertook to spell a
contract out of that report which had laid under the dust
for nearly four years without having been heard from.
The conference was held for the purpose of inducing the
Yonkers men, who had been on strike, to return to work
and for no other purpose. That object was accomplished
largely through the tact of Mr. Stevens, and to assist him
I agreed, to arbitrate certain things under certain condi
tions, if it became necessary. It did not become neces
sary because the men had no grievances which they
wished to arbitrate. What I said about arbitration at
that time related to the settlement of the Yonkers strike in
1913, which we were then discussing, and did not reiate
to anything else or to anything which had occurred or
which might occur in 1914,, 1915, or 1916, and nobody
ever pretended it did.
After the conference was over, copies of this stenog
rapher's report were sent to the men. It was not sent to
me. I did not initial it and to this day I have never seen it,
but a day or two after the meeting, I saw a newspaper re
port, in consequence of which I telegraphed to Mr.
Stevens as follows :
"Tho Times and other papers this morning contain what
purports to be n document signed by you and given to the
men but of which I have not received a copy giving the gist

of your conference yesterday. The last seven lines of that
statement beginning with the words 'and after some further
colloquy' art. erroneous uml contain a further expansion of
what I Void, to which I do not nsscnt."
Mr. Stevens replied on January 17th, as follows:
"I received yesterday afternoon, the 10th inst., your tele
gram with reference to the statement signed by me appearing
in the Times and note that you do, not nssent to the last
7 lines of such statement beginning with the words 'and after
some further colloquy.'
"The statement in question was prepared by me n short
time after you left and was submitted to the other Commis
sioners and wc all agreed that it contained a correct state
ment, ns we understood the facts. I thereupon gave the origi
nal to the representatives of the motormen and copies were
delivered to representatives of the press.
"It is very much to be regretted that tl,ere is not a per
fect agreement in recollection ns to the conclusions reached.
I apprehend, however, that it will occasion no trouble or em
barrassment to anyone in the future, since there is but little
if any possibility that it will ever become a practical question
whether the statement is correct or not.
"The results of yesterday's conference nre so happy thnt
I have no doubt a spirit of forbearance and concession on all
sides, which will undoubtedly be manifest in the future, will
bring ubout a satisfactory settlement of all matters which are
"I can but believe thnt you agree with me in thinking thnt
great progress has been made in straightening the affairs of
the Yonkers Street Railway."
I concluded the correspondence with the following letter:
"New York, January 23rd, 1913,'
The Hon. FRANK W. STKVENS,
Chnirmun, Public Service Commission:
Uenr Mr. Stevens:
"I have yours of the 17th this morning, postmarked
'Albany, January 17th. 8 P. M, Where it has been to In the
interval I cannot imagine.
"Our conference the other day was, from n public point
of view, a great success, and I am not only grateful to you
for inducing the men to go back to work, but I admire the
way in which you did it. I tin not think that my difference
of recollection with you und the test of your Commission is
likely to be a serious matter. There has been no difference
between me nnd the men; so far as I know, the only difference
is between me and the union, which is quite a different propo
sition. I have now got the facts to enable me to conclude
tbut that union is a foolish, hopelessly corrupt and cownrdlv
organization, and so long as it exists and the Yonkers ordi
nance is in full force and effect, there is still u great deal to
be done in straightening out the uffairs of the Yonkers Rail
road, but so far as I urn concerned, I nm quite ready to trust
to remediable influences of time. I cannot think that 300 men
would allow their money to be stolen and themselves to be
fooled up to the hilt indefinitely."
The endeavor to spell a permanent agreement for ar
bitration out of these stenographer's minutes upon this
state of facts, I do not care to characterize, although the
Commission's remark that "we have alreadv developed
the fact" throws some light upon their mental processes.
Still less do I wish to enlarge upon the manner in which
the stenographer's minutes were used at recent hearings.
I understand from Mr. Cook that his complaint of the
procedure of the Commission was made to it directly, and
Mr. Maher, whose testimony was not completed, informs
me that his position has not been correctly or fairlv rep
resented. So much for the allegations that I have either inten
tionally violated the agreement I was in honor bound to
keep, or was so negligent in my duties that I had entirely
I must apologize for intruding these matters, which
appear so largely personal, upon your attention, but con
sidering the character of Mr. Straus's attack, I feel that I
am bound in the public interest to make this reply.
I am, with great respect.
