HELLEH om INQUIRY.
■ POLITICS THE MOTIVE:'
Soys Xcrv Haven Probe I* Not
Backed by Sincerity.
[By Tel-graph to Th» Tribune. 1
Jl^rtrorU. Conn., Nov. President Melk-n
of th'j New Haven Road spoke to-day before the
National Grange at its annual convention here,
bitterly attacking what he termed "cheap poll
•i.-al motives on the part of Massachusetts poll
jlolans" In obtaining: the rumored investigation
of the New Haven Road. He said of the Wall
Street troubles that they were started through
Instnoen desires for reform and that all the peo
r !p must pay the bill.
The position of the company wfth -which I
am connected furnishes an Instance wherein %
ru*iness enterprise of larpe Importance is beins
made the football of politicians*, and we are
< ;ius*-d largre loss and embarrassment," he said.
• As a result of pressure by politicians, promoted
p' I believe by people whose interest is other
(baa a desire for the enforcement of the law, an
iiveftlgation has been ordered of our company,
<-<->ncerning the things it has done, has loft un
d"ne and ha? thought of doing.
"But for politics the investigation could have
been completed long before this, but an election
v. as coming on apace, and the interests involved
foot ours) required notice in the press. Some
thing in the way of consideration commensurate
v. ith the dignity of the ticklers and prodders of
the octopus was necessary. The several ten
tacles required assistants to hold tbetn, even
though they had promised to stand Still and
rnsJce no trouble. An admiring public must
have time In which to become familiar with ltd
rusted BBl wants; assurances had to be given that
th<» Interests of the public were in saf.: bands
and no guilty man Fhould escape, the goddess
«'f Justice had to avow her own chastity, though
rover questioned; we were pretty near Canada,
though \\'i had no disposition to fly. Man ha.i
achieved distinction with less opportunity, ami
lightning might strike again. The chances \v^r«
Kreat. Even if nothing came of it only the cor
poration would be embarrassed, and it was al
together too common now for that to occur to
•warrant consideration. That's really what cor
porations are for nowadays and ii it Is not >•>
stated in their charters it ought to be. Every
body must be given tho time to s< nd in all tho
complaints they could think of; no bouquets or
compliments were desired. The agitation «as
started through mendacious reports that our
company was going to finance a political cam
paign In a neighboring state for a large amount.
"Apparently nothing is too ridiculous to be
believed when votes are in tho balance, and
quick action was secured by local legislation,
holding everything up until after election and !
»tnother session of tho Legislature.
"Business could go to the dogs. When votes
**re to be gained, who thinks of business? That
1s something to t>e taxed. Political necessity
knows no obligation but to succeed. The people
pay the bills. Brains employed in the realms
of higher politics cannot be harassed by the
commonplace cares of business earning a live
lihood, or even understanding the process. Per- ]
■ish the thought!
"Able attorneys can alwaya be secured to
draw complaints that will attract attention, and
officiate In charge have a wise discretion in in
* <*stlgating them. They can be Investigated
quietly and all possible harm be avoided, or they
an be Investigated with a brass band and the
greatest possible damage result. Tho mere
•illne of a complaint often will accomplish
■ hat is wanted. It !s not always done so much
to pet the law as the corporation in motion.
"The finger of suspicion can be pointed and
credit Impaired. More charges can be made In
an hour than can be disproved in a month.
The minority holders of stock can. by promot
ing such an investigation through their shrewd
attorneys, create a nuisance value for their
foldings and walk off with the price, for it Is
■ heaper to pay than to contend In many cases,
and it may yet be cheaper for us in this.
"Justice Is indeed blind when she can be led
to hold up the largest business enterprise In
Xexr England that blackmail may be extorted.
"Don't misunderstand me. I don't think or
charge that any government official fs know
ingly a party to any blackmailing scheme in this
investigation, but I believe It has been insti
gated largely by parties not interested so much
In the administration of Justice as In securing a
beneficial result to themselves through exacting
i price for their stock, and' that It Is less expen
sive to do their work and pay the bills in this
way than it would be otherwise. I have been
■Tged by numbers of people to ignore th« law as
to interstate trafllc. have been advised by coun
■d I had a right so to do, but I have many things
to ask of you, and I am not going to fly con
trary to your so plainly expressed wishes until
some competent authority lays down a policy I
havo no option but to follow. Besides, I be
lieve in educational process, and I hope some
Hum you arc going to modify the law In your
«■« n interest, and it will be doubly acceptable to
lave it come in that way.
"Don't deceive yourselves that Wai! Street
Mffers alone, nor that patriotism is only to be
-arned from those who hold office; that bravery
■« ; only found among those who risk their lives;
Utat knowledge is only to be acquired from the
k ' idy of books; that honesty Is to be found
■My where preached the most vigorously; that
homely virtue only exists where most adver
tised.
Wai] Street distributes lta burdenr quickly
•fid ;ou cannot escape your share. As much
"nselfish patrloiFm was shown during the recent
r?.nlc In New York as was ever shown by any
•I those In other walks of life who have most
*«vere!y criticised the men and methods of that
financial centre. Men risked their fortunes,
• no were absolutely safe had they been selfish.
*hat others miffht save theirs. Do not permit
yourselves to be deceived and believe you can
f^ on and prosper while the rest are In trouble.
T f . may seem a far cry from the farm to the
♦ '" lupus with which I am Identified, but we
*tand or fall together In very large measure,
*nd It Is difficult for us to prosper and you not
Is enjoy your full share."

MUST HARRIMAN TELL?
17.I 7 . P. STOCK PURCHASES.
Argument Before I. C. Commission
on Legality of Inquiry.
Argument as to whether tho Interstate Com
merce Commission Tiad the right to put. certain
questions to Kdward H. Harriman and Ott > H.
K-Hhn In regard to the Investment transactions of
the Union Pacific Railroad Company, wnlcb ques
tions they rr fused to answer at the hearing held
In This city last February, was heard yesterday
before Judsre Hough In the United State.? Circuit
Court. The argument caino up on the petition of
thu commission to compel Mr. EZarrlman end Mr.
KaLn. who Is a member of tho banking firm of
Kuhn. I»eb A: Co., fiscal agents for the railroad
company, to give answer to the questions.
The commission, which was represented by
Henry L. Btlmson, United States Attorney; Frank
B. Kfllorrg and Cordento A. Severance, of St. Paul,
and Felix Frankfurter, Assistant United Stales
Attorney, contends that the information It «.»eks
from Messrs. Harrunan and Kahn is es.-entlal to
its work in the Investigation o? common carrier*
to enable it to make proper ar.d full report to
Congress as the. basts c' future legislation for tho
regulation of Interstate commerce.
The general piirpo<-e of the Inquiry, which was
conducted by the full commission of live mem
bers, was to ascertain whether there was a c rtain
pool of directors In the Union Pacific, the members
of, which, aside from their nominal duty of advancing
and safeguarding the development of the transpor
tation business of the road, had found it to their
advantage and profit to bell stocks to the company
at prices and under circumstances which meant
a raid on the funds of the company, to the great
disadvantage of the stockholders. The specific
queries that Mr. Harriman and Mr. Ka ; n declined
to answer on the ground that the commission had
no power to ask them wer.' those In relation to the
purchase by the Union Pacific of about 19,000,000
of the stock of th» Chicago & Alton Railway Com
pany from the Harrimnn syndicate: the purchase of
MyOW shares of stock m the Illinois Central Rail
road from Mr. Harriman. 11. H. Ropers and James
Stillman. all of them directors In the Union Pacific,
and another block of 16M06 f^liaren from Kuhn. Loeb
& Co., tho fiscal agents: the acquisition of $10.0»X>.0«iO
of stock In the Santa Ke road, a competing line,
In which Mr. Harriman. Mr. Rogers and 11. H.
Prick were directors, and the purchase of KJ.342.jt 1 )
of stock in tho St. Joseph & Grand Island Rail
way Company, of which Mr. Harrlmaa was presi
dent.
Mr. Harriman also held bis tongue when asked
by the commission whether he or his associates in
the Union Pacific had profited by the pure! of
stock in that road when the famous 10 per cent
dividend was declared in August. 1006. This was
the dividend the announcement of which was re
ferred to the executive committee, of which Mr.
Harriman waa chairman, and was deferred by It
two days after the dividend hiul been voted. Mr.
Kahn also refused to Rive any Information on this
point.
Th« "virtual autocrat" of the Union Pacific was
not In court yenterday to hear this designation of
liimseif by Mr. Stlmson In opening for the Inter
state Commerce Commission, nor did he present
himself during the day to listen to the argument
as to whether It was any of tho oomminsion"H busi
ness, in Its task of regulating interstate commerce,
to Inquire Into the stock Investments of the rail
road company. That it was non* of the commis
sion's business was the main contention of his at
torneys, John O. Mllburn. ex-Senator John C.
Bpoonor, of Wisconsin, and ex-Judge U. H. Ix>vett.
Their plea was supplemented by that of Walker P.
(lines, who appeared for Otto 11. Kahn, and who
protested that Congress had no right to delegate to
a commission Inquisitorial powers into private af
fair*.
Mr. Stimson and Mr. Kellogg, who made the ar
gument for tho commission, insisted, on the other
hand, that the commission was practically a Con
gressional commute*. It wad the Intention of Con
gress to give it plenary power, they asserted. In
matters of Interstate commerce, so that It might be
able to report back to the lawtnakir.g body with
suggestions which would be the basis for further
regulations of the common carriers. They contend
ed also that th« questions as to the purchases of
stock by the Union Paclflc were especially perti
nent, as these purchases might have direct bearing
on rates, to regulate which the commission waa
especially created.
Ex-Senator Spooner, while careful to pronounce
his belief In the- constitutionality of the law cre
ating the Interstate Commerce Commission and the
amendments thereto, declared that Congress never
Intended to delegate "visltorial" rights over state
corporations to the commission. Had there boen
any cause. he said, to suspect the bona fide char
acter of the transactions by which the Union Pa
cific acquired hundreds of millions of dollars' worth
of stock from Mr. Harriman and his associates,
tho state which created the corporation had full
power to make investigation and punish wrong
doing, as well as to provide remedial measures
against the further commission of similar acts.
In his opening argument Mr. Stlmson doelared
that the real significance of Mr. Harrlman's re
fusal to answer the questions propounded to him by
the commission amounted to this, that tho "virtual
autocrat" was seeking desperately to prevent Con
gress from getting at facts which might causa
that body to consider a statute that would seri
ously affect his dominance or the railroad situation
In the Southwest. After discussing Mr. Harriman's
Influence In the Union Pacific, the Southern Pa
cific, the Oregon Short Line and the Santa Ke, an
Influence, he said, that meant "harmony of action"
among apparently competing common carriers In
violation of the Sherman anti-trust law, Mr. Stlm
son declared:
"They are trying to cut Congress off from in
quiring into facts upon which legislation may be
based. The position is a moat extraordinary one.
Your honor has been sitting for a week or more
hearing argument on the constitutionality of the
80-cent gas law for the city of New York. There
the great wall of the corporation Is that the Legis
lature of this state did not make proper inquiry
before adopting the law complained of. In this
•"•** Ui* government is endeavoring to make such
34th Street
Inquiry, but our friends are doing everything to
prevent It."
At p the legally authorized supervisor of Interstate
commerce, Mr. Stlmaon Insisted that the commis
sion had entire rischt to find out whether the pur
chase of stocks by the Union Pacific »;is a hona
flde transaction, or whether it was inrroly a "stock
jAV.binir operation." which amounted »o a waste of
the assets of the road and an Impairment of its
facilities. if f . latter, such Investments could
properly be made the basis of statutory regulation
by Congress.
John O. Mllburn, i:» reply, contended that the only
Question for the court to determine was whether a
subordinate body iiku the Interstate Commerce
Commission had full Congressional powers. m ■
purchases of stock were entirely legal, and bad
been conducted in an entirely ]<*g:ii manner aft- ■:■
approval by the directors and ratification by th«
stockholders, Mr. Harriman had the right to <il-
pose of his stock, said Mr. Mllburn, who declared
that Congress had not the power to administer a
man's personal business affairs. "And when Con
gress has not the power to legislate," be added,
"certainly It lias not the power to Jtutmu-- as
the basis of legislation, as lias ben asserted by
my Wnic-d friend."
For Mr. K.ilm. Mr. Rlnee maintained that Kuhn,
Loeb & Co bad no official connection with t! «
Union Pacific. There was no reason whatever,
therefore, he said, why his client should bo baled
Into the Drocerr-uings.
Ex-Senator Bpoouer. In ins argument against the
petition, dwelt upon the Selds of Influence j n which
the federal and itate power wen supreme. The
Question at Issue, : .-- said, did not touch at all upon
the constitutionality of the law creating thi com
mission, but wan simply concerned with Its con-
Btructlon. The transfer of the stock was *■ Ques
tion solely between the corporation, th- stockhold
ers and Mr Harrimun. Admitting the power of
<*ongre.ss over interstate commerce, ho lnslst'd that
the transactions about which Mr. Harriman refused
to answer questions were subjects for state and not
federal investigation, as the. corporation was the
creature of the state. H. clok-..j i, v saying that
to "pillory a man at the bar of public opinion to
attract tho attention of Congress to th« supnosed
need of legislation la out of the domain of the In
terstate Commerce Commission."
Mr. Kellogg, In closing for the commission, de
clared thai it was of vital importance to the whole
■ ■ountry that the control of the railroads In the
great Southwest should not be left in the hands <,r
one man, to do what be willed with them. In-
Btancing th.* pertinency of the disputed Questions,
he pointwJ out that to-day roadu whose Sti <J<k
have been Inflated, were unable to borrow money
to buy can to transport commodities. This surely
was a question affecting Interstate commerce, and
In the present crisis It was Imperative thai the
real truth ;ia to the f>to/-k purchases of the Union
Pacific be got at, that Congress might remedy such
a condition.
Judge Hough gave. th« lawyers until November 30
to submit briefs.
FISH OX I. C. CIRCULARS,
Embarrassed bji Harahan 1 * Compli
ments — Takes Shot at Harriman.
Btuyvesaat Fish made last night the following
comment on J. T. Haruhan's two circulars of No
vember 11 to the stockholders or' the Illinois Central
Kailroad Company:
"Tho most difficult thin* In tho world for a man
to do gracefully la to discuss a eulogy of his own
aits. I certainly feel complimented that Mr. Hara
han should at this late day go out of his way thus
publicly to testify to the eSctency and character
of those In the eervice of the Illinois Centra] Kail
road Company who grew up therein and were pro
moted to their present responsible positions during
my twenty years? administration. 1 am indeed
fclad to know that not one of my old friends and
CO-laboners has been discharge by tho n<--w man
agement since it got itself Into office a year ago.
"Mr. Harahaii'u testimony as to how protltahl*
all tho traffic contracts of the, Illinois Central am
Is another eomrliment when taken with his further
statement that thoso contracts aro now an made In
my time and 09 I left them.
"Mr HarahHn has been less candid and consis
tent in his other statements. There Is no dissen
sion among the, stockholders of the Illinois Central.
Tha only question is whether the Union raclllc-
V. H. Harriman party thall control the llttaois
Central and do with It what they did with th«
Chicago & Alton, the Kansas City Southern an*
other railroads, or whether, on the other hand,
the Illinois Central shall, ac formerly, be managed
solely in the Interest of all ltd shareholders and
patrons.
"After eight months' time for reflection Mr. Har
riman has again had his 'day In court' and ha«
again refused to reveal to au anxious public what
profits he and hi* associates in the Union Pacific
made out of Its Ho-called Investments' in the Bum
mer of 1906 of H31.000,(i00 of its money, on which
the TJnlon Pacific stockholders now face a shrink
ape of H0.000.0U0 In value.
"It Is from such policies and practices that my
associates and I aro and have been throughout
driving to save the Illinois Central."
TO VSE RUSSIAX RAILS.
Steamers Chartered to Carry Steel
for Harriman's Mexican Line.
It became known In shipping; circles here yester
day that two big British freighters have been char
tered In the London market for the purpose of
transporting Russian steel rails for use In the con
struction of extensions of one of the Hurrlmun
lines into Mexico. The contract for the rails was
awarded to the Society Metallurglque Russo-Belge,
which operates the ■ Nlcopol and Mariopol steel
works, on the Black Sea. These plants are
equipped with American eteclmakins: machinery
throughout, and were until recently mans. by
Henry 8. Loud, of this city.
The United States Steel Products Export Com
pany, of this city, which concern takes care of the
foreign business of the United States Steel Corpora
tion, submitted a bid for the Harriman contract,
but the Russian quotation is understood to have
been more favorable, both as regards price and de
livery. The exact figure at which the contract was
let Is however, a secret. The original contract
ca'ls for six thousand tons. The rails will weigh
.seventy-five pounds to the yard. They will be
shipped from Mar'opol and are expected to roach
Tarai'lco. Mexioo, before the end of January.
