preference to the killed and those se
verely wounded, while it was set forth
that in many instances the slight
wounds were such that the men were
back with their commands in most in
stances before a report thereon could
be made. Thus it was clearly under
stood that such wounds must be slight
but to be still reporting soldiers as

THE VICTORY LOAN.
By the aid of the people through
ubscriptlons to the several bond is
sjes the government lias been able to
meet its financial obligations imposed
bs the war. Such has contributed
materially to the success of our fight
ing machine. All the expenses in con
nection with the conflict have not

ury is in such shape that it can take
ire of the demandv upon it hence
forth through taxation, and other
methods of financing if the Victory
loan is successfully floated. We have

that the hills are pain.

four years with the possibility of re

THE NEW HAVEN'S TROLLEYS.
In view of the troubles that are be
ing experienced by the trolley roads,
the question as to what the New Ha
ven road is going to do with its large
holdings of electric lines comes natu
rally to the front. According to the
decision of the federal court the New
Haven road must dispose of its trol
ley holdings by July 1, ttH. The se
curities at the present time have a
book value of $100,000,000, the Con
necticut and Rhode Island companies
having been for some time under the
direction of trustees named by the
court, but recently the latter has
gone into the hands of receivers.
The New Haven invested heavily in
trolley lines when it was realized that
the trolleys were big feeders of the
railroads. It was expected that they
would be the means of increasing the
railroad traffic, or that transportation
in general would be controlled through
ihe ownership of both. Conditions
have changed since that time and even
since it was decreed that the road
must dispose of the holdings in these
With tho present situation in mind
it is certainly not a favorable time to
think of disposing of such securities.
In fact it was not thought at the time
that the trustees were named that it
was wise to attempt the sale them.
More favorable conditions were antic
ipated, but instead of improving they
have gone the other way until today
the state is being asked to come to
the assistance of the Connecticut com
pany to keep it going.
No one can tell what the state of af
fairs will be two years hence con
cerning the trolleys. Certainly it
would be a decided hardship on the
road to sell under present conditions
and unless a decided improvement
foilows a petition for extension of time
would appear to be entirely justified.
