tood. will be placed by the Dlatrict'B
,ejl corps In this contention
The bill will then take up In similar
i ina "erica of transactions by
which thi various underlying companies
and properties were nrtuiRht togethor.
in 1902, under tho general control of
'o WashinKton Ilallnay nnd niectrlo
Company. "Thus tho Potomac Electric
rower Company U described an the only
public utility In Washington furnlshlntf
electric lleht nnd power, and Its organi
zation, and development, nucceeeUc in
crease; of capital, etc , are described.
It Is pointed out that, according to Its
rupori'to 0TigTess. dated DecemDor ai,

and operates the Anacostlu, Bright

and It Is shown that aporoxlmately tho
same ftoup of men. serilnB as dlnc

mentioned In the bill In 1P00 Congrcsb
passed a bill authorizing a genera! con

consolidated under authorlt of that .ict
the only ones that eer paid an divi
dends were the Metropolitan and 'he

authorized capital stock from $30,000,000
to 150,000,000. Tho parties controlllnc
this company also control the Wash
ington Railway and Electric an the
Potomac Klectrlc Power Company; they
propose to Issue bonds to the extent
of 1100,000,000 and to exchange these
stocks Mnd bonds for the controllng In
terest In the stocks of the various pub
lic utilities which thoy coptrol, und
thereby Illegally and unlawfully domi
nate these utilities and receive their
Income and profit through a corpora
tion foreign to the Jurisdiction of the
District government, to the Injury of
the public and also of many of the
stockholders of some of these underly
This Is understood to be another point
of law which will be stresSod by the
law) era for the District government.
They believe that the courts will hot
permit tho public utilities of the city
of Washington, holding charters which
were granted to them as Washington
corporations, to be controlled and opera
ted bv a foreign corporation over
which the District authorities have no
authority. It Is pointed out that such
control would be a menaco to the In
terests of the public and of the local
government as well.
Long Argument Expected,
Without doubt there will be a long
argument on this question. The Dis
trict's lawyers have carefully looted
up tho authorities and will make the
general contention that foreign corpo
rations have only the authority given
to domestic corporations. If this be
true, and If the court finally shall so
hold, then a Virginia corporation will
be estopped from carrjlng out tho gi
gantic merger plan which Is proposed,
because there is no law In force In the
District of Columbia which would per
mit such a procedure, while on the
contrary, tho anti-trust law has been
repeatedly so construed as to prevent.
It is believed, such a consolidation up Is
In behalf of the District government's
contention. It Is set forth that no au-
tnoruauvc valuation of the nubile utili
ties of the District of Columbia has ever
been made. While the street railways
in the District are required to make an
nual reports, these are alleged to be
useless for any purpose of determining
tnc real value of the property. It Is,
therefore, riot known and is Impossible
to know, where their rates and charges
are reasonable, though K Is believed
that some of these companies are, now
overcharging the public. The lame of
securities of thesa corporations, and the.
service rendered bv them, s declared
not to, be sufficiently regulated, and It
Is pointed out that Congress now has
under consideration a bill to establish
u public utilities commission with
power to Imposo all these regulations.
The Corporation Counsel charges
that ono of the objects of the pro
posed merger of public utilities Is
to evade the effect of that law by
completing the consolidation before It
May Injure District
It Is pointed out that If this con
solidation Is permitted to be carried
out, the District of Columbia, erf a
Kovernmtnt, will bo Injured because.
In the accounting- proceiscs of the
holding corporation It will be passible
to transfer apparent earnings, and
thcrtforo apparent values, outside of
tho District of Columbia, so that thoy
will be taken there Instead of In this
Kor Instance, It Is pointed out that
some of tho Virginia railway and
lighting properties which aro being
brought Into the merger are provid
ed with their electric current by the
Potomac Electric Power Company, at
prices actually leas than the cost of
producing tho current The result
fr,,.i J. . us adopted A collateral I of this Is that the earnings and

and the Washington Railway and
L,lectrlo purchased the underlying as
sets, and Issued or had authority to
nd 18.600,000 of common stock. At
that time Washington Traction nnd
i-lectrlc bonds were worth lest thon
B0 on tho !00, and tho holders of
these-bonda received- for-raclT $1,000
bond J550 of Washington Railway and
Klectrlc bonds, J550 In Its preferred
stock, and J200 In common stock In
ndditlon, eurh stockholder of Wash
ington Traction und l'.lectrlc, for each
JOO share of tpck, on the payment
of 9 for a share, received $9 In pre
ferred stock and $30 In common stock
This common stoclt, the bill will al
lege, had little or uny market value
In 1903 It sold as low as 9 adn as
high as 13, In 1104 It fluctuated be
tween 104 and 28 14. In 1905 between
37 V4 and 44. In 190G between 37 4
and 44; In 1907 between 29 and 41'A,
in 1908 between 19 and 40, in 1909 be
rwecn 40 and 48. In 1910 between 31
and 42. In January. 1911, It sold below
35, and from that time owing, It la
alleged, to tho manipulation which
tho bill will describe. It roie steadily
from 35 to 45 In June, 1911, and thence
until It Anally reached 85.
The bill declarei flatly that this rise In
Quotations Is largely In excess of real
At this point the bill takes up and
describes the alleged series of manipu
lations by which It Is alleged that some
of the directors and olllcers of the
Washington ltallnay and Electric have,
for more than 11 year, been engaged In a
plan to raise tint market quotations and
obtain control of a. majority of tho
stock Clarence K. King, president, and
William II llluhs. a director, ure spe
cifically named. In connection with tlijs
aeries of trausiictloni
Tho bill charges that they now con
trol a majority of the slock for the
purpose of turning It over at the ex
cessive quoted value to the Washing
ton Utilities Company In exchange for
Its stock or bonds, or both that these
men own or control the Washington
Utilities Company, and that they huvo
made a personal profit for theinsclvts
In these atoc l transactions The names
0 all stockholdis of thenn corporations
who have engaged In these transactions
are not known, but the bill declares that
thoso chleflv so cngnKcd are Messrs.
lllbbs and King
The bill next describes how the Wash
ington, Alexandria and Mt. Vernon and
the Washington, Arlington and Pulls
Church railways were recently merucd
Into the Wnnhlngton-Vlrglnla Kullway
Company, and points out that Clarence
P. King Is piepldi-nt and n director In
the Washington-Virginia Railway Com-
?ny. Then the Maryland-Virginia
tallwav Company was furmod and
rapidly expanded Its capital the shares
being disponed of either fin money or
a presumed equivalent In property,
Messrs King and lllbbs being In con
trol of this corporation also.
The Maryland-Virginia recently
phanceil Its name to tho Washington
Utilities Company, and Increased Its
utlon of the Potomac Electric would
apparently be reduced, while tho
earnings and profits of the outside
companies would apparently be in
creased by reason of their 'ability to
get their power at less than cost.
Therefore the book showlne would
indicate an artificially depressed val
ue of the property which lie taxable In
Washington, for the benefit of the
local government and artificially in
creased value of the property taxable
outside Washington and from which
the Wushlngton government can got
Messrs. King, lllbbs, and their as
sociatex. It Is charged, 'propose,
through their control, so to operate
the various properties as to make
them most profitable ,to the holding
corporation It Is alleged that stock
holders who decline to exchange their
shares for the shar'es of the holding
corporation will suffer by reason
of the manipulation of Intercorpor
ate relations, etc so as to divert the
profits Into the coffers of the holding
corporation It Is expected that on
this point there will be. a bitter con
tention nmonir tho lawveri
The District's lawyers believe they
will be able to prove that through the
complexities of inter-corporate relation
ship and common control, the people
dnmlnafj nir the holing corDoratlon will
"be able largely to aggregate their profits
in tnc treasurers or tnose unarming
corporations In which tho holding com
pany Is the largest proportional owner,
while underlying corporations In which
the holing company is a small propor
tionate, holder will suffer.
Redistribution of Stocks.
Individual stockholders of the under
lying companies will lose all voice In the
conduct of their business, and will draw
their dividends only from the holding
It Is also polnte out that If this merger
Is onco carried out and subsequently
held to be unlawful tho various classes
of stock which It has gathered In will
have to bn redistributed to the original
holders; but tin's redistribution, under
the rule laid down by tho Northern Se
curities dissolution decree, will not give
to each original holder the precise share
which he originally contributed, but
Instead will give him his pro-rata share
of all the different issues and classes
of stocks which may have been gather
ed In by the holing corporation
The effect of this would be that a
stockholder who had put In a valuable
atock, capable of earning regular divi
dends, would, following such a distribu
tion, be compelled to take a hodge-podge
of fractional shares of all the com
panies, both profitable and unprofitable.
In which the holding company was In
terested In general, the corporation counsel
concludes that the whole merger prop
osition is without authority of law, and
Is violation of the Interests of the pub
lic that patronizes the utilities, the Gov
ernment which taxes them, and the
stockholders whose Interests are so
vitally Involve. Wherefore the court Is
asked to enjoin further proceedings by
way of currying out the merger program.

Increase in Fare Is Opposed
by Residents Before Spc
Alleging that they were being dis
criminated against In the matter of
commutation rates over tho Or oat Kails
branch of the Washington and Old Do
minion railway, witnesses for tho com
plainants at a hearing before Bpeclal
Dxarmner J. IMgar Smith, of the Inter
stain Commerce Commission, yosterday
testified that they were compelled to
pay an -increased rate through the fix
ing by tho company of commutation
rates wholly within Virginia to and
from Thrlfton and Cherryual Instead
of to and Item Washington. Tho mat
ter was brought up through proserta
tlon of a petition signed by about tnrty
residents along the I'ne near Franklin
Park and Mclan Station. The case Is
known as that of H. T. J. Price t al.
against ths Washington nnd Old Do
minion Railway Company.
Klght witnesses wero heard and the
case was adjourned until next Wednes
day. Wilton J. Lambert appeared for the
railroad company and John D. DalBh
for tho complainants. Mr. Lambert said
today that the change In placo for giv
ing commutation rates was made to
frovlde a better adjustment of the
ransfer problem. Under the old sys
tem the company was compelled to pay
the Capital Traction Company tor a
lot of transfers which they could not
check up on
"In the long run," said Mr Lamport,
"tho commuters aro served about as
they woro boforo and tho railroad com
pany Is better protected. Many of the
residents farthest out aro receiving a
lower commutation rale, although It .s
true that some ot thoso nearer In aro
paying more for their Mckots. The in
crease In some cases. Is as high as 73
cents a month"
