tee Charged that Southern Railway
Bottled Up Independent Coal Opera.
Washington, Dec. 10.-The senate
committee investigating charges that
the Southern railway had obtained
control of projected but uncompleted
railroads into the Virginia, Kentucky,
and Tennessee coal fields to aid the
socalled trust in keeping this coal
from the market through ports south
of Norfolk today heard testimony
tending to show that these uncom
pleted roads have been debt pro
Frank C. Wright, of Bristol, Tenn.,
testilled only after a vigorous protest
by Southern railway counsel, who as
sorted it was an assault on the South
crn's credit. Wright, it developed,
liter, w.is employed by the committee
itself several miontlis ago to study the
Wright testified that the Atlantic
& iDanville, during 1-1 years, had pro
diled a dlfcit of $931,000 for the
Souithern; t Ihe )aInville & Western had
netted a dicit of $61.000; the Cape
Pear, & Yadkin Valley in 1913 showed
a debit balance of $91,000; the Care
lina & North western for the year 1913,
* $10,000 deflet; the Tallulah Falls
a $60,000 deficit for 1914,, and the
Knoxvilile & Bristol a deficit of $93,
000 during Southern control.
When Wright reached reference to
the Knoxvilel, Cumberland Gap &
Lcuisville railroad, A. P. Thom, coun
sel for the Southern, protested against
the continuance of testimony as to the
"financial history" of the roads.
"By showing the deficit, we show
that the road has not been put to the
proper use," replied Frank Lyon, at
torney for independent coal operators
in the Virginia-Tennessee-Kentucky
The committee ruled Wright might
testify as to the use of the road for
transporting coal. lie said that such
high coal rates were charged over
the line as to prohibit Appalachian
coal moving to the seaboard.
