of bnth classes of gecurltleg are held by Brad-
ley Barlow and the Vermont Nutlonal bank of
St. Albans. Recelver Hendee says that the le
gal tltle to thls road Is in the stock and bonds.
For this reatonho belleves the bonds held by
tbe bank amountlng to 8531,000 out of a total
issue of 8001.000 nre valuable securlty, and
that they will bringatleast 8300 000 for tbe
benefit of the Vermont Natinnal bank. It is
necessary for tbe Canadian Paclfio to own the
Montreal, Portland and Boston rallway, whlch
is tbe Important link ln tbe South-eastern llne
between Montreal and Newport, in order to op
erate guccessfully and advantngeously the
Siuth-eastern gystem. The road is in posseS'
sion of the present trustees of the Soutb-east
ern only by the taclt consent of tbo holders of
the stock and bonds Bradley Barlow and Re

wlse reasous Recelver Ilendee does not agsert
hls rlght on behalf of the Vermont Nutlonal
bank for the posseeslon of tho Montreal, Port
land and Boston rallway. lt will be to the
greater udvantage ot the depositorg ln the
