TtiH men of motey who will participate
in the annual election of SantaFe directors
Thursday morning at the general office
building' arrived i 1 Topeka today and are
this afternoon looking at Topeka through
eastern eves.
The morning' train from Chicago over
the Santa Fe brought Mr. Theodore W
Myers, chairman of the Atchison Pro
tective Reorganizi.tion committee and hid
patty who immediately ou their arrival
went to Hotel Thrjop where they were
assigned the best looms in the house.
-Mr. Myers, the head of the protective
committee, is a prominent politician in
-New York, having- served as comptroller
of New York, atd this fall was pre
sented the Tamciacy nomination for
mayor, which for business reasons he
was forced to decline.
Accompanying- Mr. Myers is Gen. B. F.
Tracey, who was secretary of the navy
under President Harrison; Mr. Newman
Erb. one of the best known lawyers
in Xew York; " Mr. Win. P. Smith,
of the firm of Breeze & Smith;
brokers for Havemover brothers of sugar
lame; Mr. E. X. Tailer. a wealthy re
tired merchant, and Mr. II. D. Kyle, a
Xew York broker, who has been for
several years associated with Mr. Myers.
For an hour after they arrived at the
Throop there was f. general hustling- to
get the trunks of tie Xew Y'orkera into
the proper roams and while one man
waa looking iqr a Fussian bath and was
disappointed because he was informed
tiiat Topeka did no: possess that luxury
the rest were scouring with Kaw river
water and hotel soap.
The same train which brought the
members of the protective committed
also brought the representatives of the
present controlling- interests in the Santa
Fe directory, Mr. K P. Cheney of Boston,
and Mr. Chas. S. Gieed of Topeka, who
came in the special car "Bay State."
Mr. Cheney and 31 r. Gieed were driven
at once to Mr. Gleei's office in the Cen
tral National banf building, and Mr.
Cheney will be tho guest of Mr. Gleed
at hia home in Potwin.
Mr. James A. a ker, transfer clerk in
the office of the president of the board
of directors, arriveu last evening and is
at the Throop.
As has been the case for several days
past both sides ela'.t i that when the elec
tion of directors takes place Thursday
morning ttiey wiil have won that for
which they have been lighting during
the last three months.
Mr. Chas. S. Glee i, who was seen by
a Statk Jjihnai. reporter soon after
his arrival, said: "The directors will be
represented at the annual meeting by
Mr. B. P. Cheney, who arrived today,
and Mr. Ja. A. Blair, a nephew of Johu
I. Blair, the weil-knjwn Xew Jersey
financier, and myself. Mr. Blair stopped
oil in Kansas City, tut he will be in To
peka tomorrow. Tt ere can be but one
result in the annual meeting tha pres
ent board of directors, with - one
exception will be re elected. Mr. Alden
Speare of Boston, has announced that he
wiii decline a re-eie Jtion.
"The present boarl of directors repre
sent by far tho largest interests in the
property, and their 1 e-election is assured.
e have in our possession suilicient
stock to control the election.
"We have the Arnterdam proxy, and
our majority in th6 meeting wiil be very
large.
Will the cumulative system of voting
be used':" aiked the reporter.
"No it wiil not No: by our interests
and I do not ss how i; can te at all. Tiie
charter of th c j'uaT-providea a nys
tem of voting CtH lU to gee how any
one can even ask tl.t the cumulative
system be used. T is Protective com
mittee will not hive even a minority
representative on the board. Why should
they". They have been ti Siting us, and
why should we give even a minority
place on the board to those who are work
ing against the wishes of a majority. of
the stockholders?"
Chairman Ilea . Myers of the Pro
tective committee who is leadiog the
i.gm 10 turn down the prenent managers
of th road says .Mr. Newman Erb, hia
legal representative, is his spokesman.
Mr. Erb said: "W, will know about
this whole affair aU the meetins Thurs
day morning, bat as it now stands we
are here to participate in the election of
an entirely new boari of directors. We
represent a vast majority of the stock
M.mc.ivoi.jr i-aau in money also" Dut in
Mr.
Continuing, Mr. Erb said: "The pres
ent management of tie roai has been
outrageous, a everybody knows, and the
interests of ih stockholders have been
utterly disregarded ty the late board of
directors."
-Will the cumulative system of voting
Da used ia the annual meetin j-;"
"As to that I can not say, but it no
doubt wdl. or at least the minority (and
I wtll not admit that eareia the minor
Ujj wi.l have a reprdsaatation on the
board. Where the Interests are so closely
divided and are bo lare it is nothing
more than fair that the very larjre minor
ity interests shoul i be represented on the
board of directors."
One member of the protective commit
tee party said it was his understanding
that the cumulative system of voting
would govern in the annual meeting or
the election of directors will tie taken
into the courts. From another source it
was learned that it is expected that the
protective committee expect to be award
ed a minority po.sidon on the new board
rather than have the matter j row into .
legal controversy.
The present board of directors which is
asking a re-election is as follows:
Kdward J. Berwind, Xew York.
James A. JC'.air, Xew York.
William JL Bull, Xew York.
B. P. Cheney, jr., Boston, Mass.
Thomas P. Fowler, Xew York.
C. Sv Gleed, Topeka, Kas.
C. K. llolliday, Topeka, Kas.
Samuel C. Lawrence, Boston, Mass.
Johu A. MeCall, Xew York,
tieo. A. Xiokerson, Boston, Mass.
L. Severy, Topeka, Kas.
AUleu Speare, Boston. M.-iss.
F. K. Sturgis, Xew York.
The only change to be made in the
directory, if the present directors do as
they anticipate, will be to choose a suc
cessor to Alden Speare of Boston.
Messrs. Waiter L. Oakniai:, Cutting,
Kngle and Duval of Xew ork are ail
mentioned in this connection.
The story sent out from Xew York a
few days ago that it is the plan of the
plan of the present directors to place
iieceiver Aldace F. Walker on the board
is denied, as ia also the .-tory
that Mr. I. Severy of I.tnpori.i is
to be retired. The charter of the com
pany provides that three of the thirteen
directors shall tie residents of Kansas,
and Mr. C. K. Hoi lid ay, Mr. C. S
!leed and Mr. L. Severy are all scheduled
for re-election.
Vice President D. B. Robinson, general
agent of the receivers, and General
Counsel Kenna, of the ' Frs o, are ex
pected to arrive tomorrow.

"VVliat tlie Statutes Sj- on tlie Sn lj t-i-t Tlie
Nantu i'es Chart'!.
Cumulative voting for directors and
trustees of corporations, about which
there is so much talk in connection with
the coming Santa Fe annual election on
Thursday, was authorized by the state
legislature of 18bl, and the law itself is
found in 1185, of the general t-tatutes, aa
follows:
"In all elections for directors or trus
tees of any incorporate company each
shareholder shall have the right to cast
us many votes in the aggregate as
shall equal the number of shares so
held by him or her in sail company-
multiplied by the number of directors or
trustees to be elected at such election.
and each shareholder may cast the
whole number of vote?, either in perion
or by proxy, for one caudidate, and such
director or managers shall not be elected
in any other manner: provided, however,
that in the erection of directors or trus
tees of co-operative association, that
have or may hereafter by their by-laws
so determine no stockholder stall be al
lowed to cast more than one vote, umlti
p'ied by the number of directors or trus
tees of any such association."
The original charter to the Atchition I
and Topeka Kaiiroad compiuy was -granted
by the territ jrial legislature at i
Lawrence in 1830, and according to that '
charter in the election of directors each
share was to have one vote by person or
by proxy.
One of the lawyers in the attorney
general's office says the election of Santa
Fe directors will come under the Uw
governing cumulative voting. Although
the original charter says nothing about
that system of voting, yet since the char
ter was granted the Santa Fe Las come
under the general laws of Kansas as a.
corporation, and the general law provid
ing for cumulative voting wiil no doubt
govern in this case if the minority share
holders make the proper kind of a fight.
