V- both the county and federal grand juries, but
the federal indictments have precedence over

Should the authorities permit his arrest on th«

at Xoriii Brother Island en June 15, ISO 4. was af-
Srr.»ed yssterdav by the United States Circuit Court

BEGINS OX ICE TRUST
(Ol RT DIXISIOX A Dr ERSE
Attorney General's Request to Dis
continue Mayer Suit Granted.
Following the action of Governor Hughes. !■>•
tire Leventritt. in the Supreme Court, handfd down
a decision yesterday against the American Ice Com
pany on th» contention madn to the court by Attor
ney Oenfral Jackson. TIM Justice granted the mo
tion of the Attorney General argued last week for
the discontinuance of the original action brought
by Julius M. Mayer, former Attorney General,
against th«» ice trust for the dissolution of the com
pany. Jullca T. Davies, attorney for the ice com
pany. arRU«d that it was the intention of the Attor
ney General in asking for the discontinuance of the
suit to seek a change of venue and also get a jury
trial of the cause, which would be impossible in
this county.
This decision, coming on tho heels of the Gov
ernor* order to the Attorney General to prosecute
the case in the place of the District Attorney, was
regarded a? an important one. Mr. Davies also
contended that it was unfair to the company to
let go for nothing the searching examination con
ducted by former Attorney General Mayer of the
American Ice Company's books' and records. He
said that there had beta no restraint of trade and
that the company was not a trust or in control of
a monopoly.
Justice Leventritt said in his decision that "no
injustice was done to the defendant by permitting
a discontinuance of this action. The hardship
which the '••ntiont conceives will be worked is
fanciful rather than real- The avowed purpose of
the Attorney General does not affect the applica
tion of the Attorney General."
It was said at the Attorney General's office that
Mr. Jackson would appear pillilintly «o day before
the grand jury and arrange for a convenient time
to present the evidence in his possession. He be
lieves that this will result in indictments for viola
tion of the Donnelly anti-trust laws. Investigation,
it was said, would bo made immediately and would
Ik- pursued carefully and thoroughly.
Attorney General Jackson will conduct th*> in
vestigation before the grand jury in person. Some
of the witnesses v;ho will possibly be called are
'!'.!•• "\V. Morse. Charles G. Gates and Wesley
11. Oler, president of the American Ice Company.
Mr Jackson, it was said, had a large number of
documents pertaining to the relation between Th*»
American Company and th" subsidiary concern.
A BAD LOT.
C ILLS (IF
P. S. C. Engineer Reports on Union
Railway Company's Property.
If Bern* Fecrr.ful visitor to the metropolis should
point .... Car 14S of the Union Railway Company
to a New York business man as a fair sample of
ttie antediluvian types of conveyance used in the
first city cf the United Stat-s. the business man
would remark: "Oh. it's only a franchise holder!
Nobody uses it." In the cafe of Car M the ex
planation would be wrong. It's a pretty bad case
at that, but not sd much wcrse than a lot of the
can that are in regular service on the company's
lin<?6 in upper Manhattan and The Bronx. Here
is the diagnosis of its condition, as made by A. W.
McLlmont, consulting engineer «f the Public Ser
vice Commission:
A single truck car; two doors missing, two others
smashed- roof canvas sti kins: through the hole;
slats in the floor mat ornken. five curtains missing,
also the door rubbers: dashes burned through by
rust wher« the bumper and dash meet; bonnet
broken very badly: light and power wiring Fagged
and poorly insulated: one handhole cover missing:
motors visible through floor: sign reflector torn and
bumper Mils smashed; ore headlight had no re
flector" four grease coven of the axle bearing
boxes mi-sing; headlight *vire broken: seat carpet
frayed and pulled away from the strip and the
whee] guards broken: heat wiring under th<> s»at
had a splice In it, but Insulation in the splice had
be»n forgotten.
According to Mr. McLJmont in his report to Com
missioner EustiP. out of a total of 137 cars operated
US wer»- examined by him during December and
January. Forty-three had insecure or broken
Btepa, 69 had trouble with the wiring, in 25 the seats
were in bad condition. 51 had doors in need of re
pairs. 32 had defective dashboards and It had de
fective trucks, to say nothing of various other
faults enumerated hi Mr. MeLimonts report. Many
of the can were found to be in a dirty condition,
and one of them was frankly <-a:;'-d ••filthy."
The forty-six days :?;»•:,:. by Mr. McLlmont in the
inspection of the cars lead him to the conclusion
that the rolling stock of the Union Railway Com
pany is in about as bad a condition as it could be.
The complete overhauiir.g and rebuilding of the
company's proper::, is recommended.
INGAILS OH BUSINESS NEEDS.
Tells Bankers Eepeal of Sherman Law Is
First Necessity to Future Success.
Detroit, Feb. 12.— Melville K. Tngaiis was the
chief speaker at the dinner of the Bankers' Club
of Detroit, to-night. He said, in part:
There are three things which seem to me to lie
very essential for the future success of business:
First a repeal of the Sherman law. and in its stead
some' better scheme of regulating corpora sec
ond ... addition to our banking laws: third, peace
—less talk, (ess legislation, less shrieking and
i" believe the best thing to help the recovery
from onr panic, which started in Its acute form
four months ago. would be the repeal of the Sher
man law. so-called. It never has done any good
that I -..,] aware ■•. On the other hand, its mild
enforcement so far has produced nothing but
trouble. The threat of its enforcement has stopped
and injured business and now, if it is rigidly en
forced as it is proposed to do, it will paralyse all
commerce and trade and every business that re
quires an agreement in order to live. Even the
labor unions are now feeling the weight of its
hand. . .„. ,
By this I do not mean that I am willing to let
the eorpoiations have their sweet will and do as
th-y please. I would bring them Into the light,
where every detail or' their doings should be given
to the public. ! would not allow one of them to
engage in interstate traffic without procuring a li
tense. and to obtain that license 1 would make
thVm go into the minutest details of how their cor
poration was organised, how much was wind and
how much was substance. I would make them
agree that they would report every six months,
and these report* should be verified by examination
of government experts.

BIG OIL PLANT BURNS.
-Four Blocks of Standard's Buildings
in Brooklyn 'Destroyed.
The Standard OB Company's plant on the water
front at North 12th street. ■\Villiamsburg, ISM
destroyed by fire yesterday morning, which started
in the filling department when a workman dropped
hot soldering iron Into a can of naphtha.
In less than ten minutes the plant was a roaring
furnace. The employes had started to work, and
many of them bad narrow escapes from death, so
quick did the burning oil flow. The damage was
estimated at IBM*). The firemen were hampered
by bursting nose.
A sleisai and third alarm summoned ail th«
available fire beats and fill the engines below
Poltsa street. The Standard Oil <*ompany bad
twelve tugr. ah equipped with fire fighting rp
paratvs, hi wcrk on the blaze a short time after
it started, thereby saving adjoining piers and
Sheds. Chief Oroker arrived soon after the t're
broke out and took charge. It SMS feared for a
time that the huge tanks of oil would explo.3".
and tl-.e tenants for several Mocks around were
driven from tbeh* homes.
Deputy Police Commissioner Baker stationed fifty
detectives around the houses arid in the crowd. In
the immediate vicinity of the burning buildings
were several tanks filled with oil. This oil was
pumped to New Jersey and Long Island to reduce
the danger.
One hundred thousand cans of oil and naphtha
were stored on the pier adjoining where the fire
started, and before the firemen could check the
flames they spread to the pier. The firemen were
compelled to work from the outside for several
hours and allow the lira boats to pour tons of
water on the burning pier. For a time It looked as
if the entire neighborhood was doomed, but the
shifting of the wind saved the gas works at North
10th street.
The firemen were compelled to work in relays
on the pier, and a dozen of them were temporarily
overcome dv smoke. After four hours of hard
work Chief CYoker announced that the blaze had
been checked and he sent several companies home.
Navigation was at a standstill, as the river was
ablaze with burning oil.
Chief Croker paid that It would be probably a
wee.k before the fire could be extinguished, and
care will be taken to confine it to the pier. Pr»
cautions will be also taken to keep th» burning
oil from flowing into the East River. Th» burned
plant covers four large city blocks, and run?
from Kent avenue to the East River. A fire about
a year ago caused $100,000 damage to piers and
buildings.
BLACK UAXD ARRESTS.
One for 'Attempt to Bloxc Up the
Pati Bank.
Three arrests were made yesterday by Detectives
De Guida and Mondo in connection with recent.
bomb throwing outbursts of (Cow York's Italian
colony.
Franc Cortlcchia, of No. 442 East l"th street,
was taken into custody at the corner of 13th street
and First avenue, where he had been loitering for
more than an hour. The detectives thought he
might have Fome knowledge of the attempt to get
money from Michael Pulliri. of No. 510 East 13th
Street.
Since Saturday night, when Pulllni shot an al
leged member of the Black Hand, he has been re
ceiving letters which informed him over the sti
letto signature that he would be amply repaid for
his work against th« Black Hand and that hi
might as well prepare for death.
On the way to the station a. man. who gay» the
name, of Michael Alcano. of No. 43 First avenue,
attempted to rescue Cortic^hia and was arrested.
According to Lieutenant Petroeini, Corticchia and
Alcano have been under suspicion of being con
nected with two recent attempts to kill Sal va tori
Schillizzi, of No. 419 East 12th street.
Investigation into the attempt to blow up the.
bank of Pasquale Pati & Son. at No. 240 Elizabeth
street, on January 23. resulted yesterday In the
arrest at No. 170 Elizabeth street of Veto Lauro, of
No. 35 Ptinne street. Flushing. Long Island.
•According to the detectives, Lauro served a term
of fourteen years in Italy in connection with simi
lar activities, and the police say that they have
evidence that he was instrumental in the attempt
on Pati's bank.

KO?.E THAN 77.000 STOCKHOLDERS
Share Surplus Earnings of the Pennsylvania
— Bondholders Not Included.
Philadelphia. Feb. Some idea of the impor
tance of the net earnings of the railroads to a
large number of persons may be gathered from fig
ures compiled to January 1. 11*08. showing that on
that date the shareholders in the Pennsylvania
Railroad Company numbered 57,226, an Increase of
15.370 for the year 1907.
Daring the year the average holding decreased
from 150 to 110 shares. The number of women
stockholders Increased from 19.252 to X.m. while
the number of European investors grew from 7,753
on December 31. 19% to 9,143 a year later. The in
crease in total holders for the month of December,
1907. was LSI.
A compilation has also been made which shows
that in the companies controlled and directed by
the Pennsylvania Railroad Company there are In
the lines east of Pittsburg 11.111 shareholders anil
In the companies west of Pittsburg 9.552 holders of
stock. These make a total of 20,793 holders in all
tlie subsidiary companies. A few hundred of these
holders represent th« Pennsylvania Railroad proper.
but approximately 20,000 are entirely Independent
Ftockholders.
Tli«»se add»*d to the 57.216 investors in the parent
company make a total of more than 77.0/1 Investors
who look to th* profits of the Pennsylvania Rail
road system for p. whole or a part of their income.
The Income which is paid to these 77,0<V> people
must come from the surplus earnings of the com
panies, for none of the thousands of bondholders
scattered all over the world, and to whom the com
panies ar* pledged to pay various fixed percentage?,
i-, - laded In this compilation.
