GOES TO RECEIVER
ItternatIonal Mer'anntie Main Conk.
plny Unable to 3Meet Bond Interest.
New York, April 3.-Trhe Interna
tional Mercantile Marine Company, tle
giant steaimlship combination organized
in 1902 by J. P. Mlorgan & Co., which
placed under one control some of the
principal Ei lnglish, American and Bef
gian steamship lines between the
United States and Europe, today went
into tie hands of a receiver. The coml
iany has for six imonuis been unable
to pay interest on its $52,7i .1,000 4 1-2
per cent collateral trust bonds.
While the colpally since its organi
zation has been unable to pay divi
dends, it was said that with the out
break of war its earnings wevre se
verely diminished, precipItated the
present ersis. .\Many of its hips now
Ire in war service and its various serv%
loss have been greatly curtailed.
Application for the receiversily was
made by the New York Trust Comn
pany, trustees for the defaulted bonds,
and with the approval of the bond
holders P. A. S. Franklin, vice p-esi
ent of the company, was appointed
Although tile receivership affects the
inttrnational Mercantile Marine as tile
holder for all the subsidiary organiza
tions which it controls, it does not af
fect the English subsidiaries, it is said,
such as the While Stute, Leyland, Do
million and Atlantic Transport lines.
That is because the stocks of the lat
ter companies were not pledged as col
lateral for the defaulted mlortgage, it
was explained. The receivership re
lates only to tile Anjerican and Red
Star (Delgianl) lines, to which tile re
ceiver is empowered to lend money to
conduct their operations.
WhetI0 tile ships of these two lines
or of the entire iercantile marine
fleet, regardless of nationality, would
be entitled to tile protection of the
ilited S0tates in tile war Zone by virtue
of the Federal receivership was a ques
tion raised today.
