Boom for First Vice-President
Suddenly Flattens Out
A commit tat of lit, acting for tue
Board of Directors of tha New York.
New Ha van and Hartford Railroad sc
eepted thla afternoon the resignation
of President C. B. Mellen, which waa
tendered at a meeting held yesterday.
The reslgnetlon la to take effect upon
the appointment of Mr. Msllsn's sue-
t. P. Morgan. Theodore X. Vail.
Samuel Res. William Skinner. Edward
Mllllgan and Robert W. Taft are the
mensbers of ths committee which con
tinue ae an organisation acting for
thf Board of Ulracture until a new
president of the New York. New Haveh
end Hartford Is choeen. The commit
tee he aeveral Dig railroad men under
consideration, but It Is not believed
likely that anybody now connected
with tha New York. New Haven and
Hartford or It allied llr.ee known In I
have been at any time In sympathy
with Mr. Mellen will ie selectet'.
In fact It would appear that the
resignation of .Mr. Mellen amount to
a declaration of open warfare on hie
part against the New York. New Hav
en and Hartford illrectotate. Of course
this cannot be Mated with certainty,
but It la known that Mr. Mellen doe
not purpose to liave all the blame of
the various New Haven stock manipu
lations, monopoly plan and operating
mishaps loaded on his huuldera when,
he claims, everything he did waa ee ra
tioned or ordere.l by the directorate.
SUDDEN RISE AND QUICK COL
LAPSE OP BYRNES BOOM.
An In. Id -lit tending to lllusliate that
s!l f no harmony between Mf Mellen
and t le board of directors of the New
Haven road was the sudden rtie and
onlck collapre tn.day of a report that
T.mothy K. Hyrncs, Pint Vlce-Preol-lent
end llenersl Maniper of the New
York. Nev Haven and Hartford, would
be chosen Mr. Mellen' successor. Mr.
Byrnes Is a lawyer hy profession, but s
railroad man by instinct and training,
and as an operating official he takes
high rank. He rame to the New Havan
syatem from the Northern Pacific at the
request of Mr. Mellen nine years ago.
An hour before the meeting of the
committee to-day to act on Mr. Mellsn's
resignation every Xe- Haven official
In the Orand Central Terminal building
was certain that Mr. Byrnes would
soon bo chossn president of the road.
Mr. Byrnea was on hand. Hs had bean
summoned to meet the committee.
But tha committee did not select Mr.
Byrnea. And Mr. Byrne, looking con
siderably put out, started for Huston on
the first tram out. Than the rumors
switched and it was hawked about that
Mr. Byrnes would also tender his reslg
r.stlonthst he ha. I been too close a
friend and too loyal an ssoolats of Mr.
Mellen to be considered as the head
of the system.
Following this came tha report that
the entire Mellen human machinery of
the New Haven la to go out with tha
bi.cbose that the directors will b:lng
in a new head who will Infuse new
blood turougiout the systsm. At any
rato ull the Melln men on the road
are expecting separation from thalr
Jobs. Thla meaning all tha men Mr.
Mellen brought with him from the
Northern Pactflo or employed from
other roads or promoted to responsible
positions on ths New Haven lines after
he took tha presidency.

The warning took the form of a notification known as Bulletin No. 8.
In it were outlined the subjects on which the railroads have demanded
arbitration, and it closed with the announcement that under no circum-.
stances would the representatives of the conductors and trainmen in New

roads did not withdraWrom their position.
