The New Kncland Investment and Se
[curlty Company is a roluntary aaaocla*
tion formed in ISOti to take over tiie
[NeW Haven's Massachusetts trol'evs. It
|th>W COntrola tiie greater part Of the
?afTreet rallway mlleace In Central and
Waatarn aaaaaachuaatta, outalda of the
Barkahlre street Railway, which was
BolrJ to rhe New Havn in !r':" by auth
orlty of th* Maaaachnaatta Legialatura
i Th? parchaae was eonaumated
[through the acqulaltlon of the antire
eomraaa stock of the New England In
veatment and Becurity Company of
! 1100.000. which alone has \otIns power.
?The I4.000.ooo preferred stock of the
'Investment Company la owned by the
; publld and dlvldanda of^ ptr cent on
: tha laaue are miaranteevi by the New

The New England Investment Com?

How the Company Was Formed.
The New Haven tranaferred tr, the
holdlng company tho Sprlngfield and
Worcaatar propertles, the Central Mass
arhuaatta Electric Company and other
mlnor lines. The bankera at that time
.'ii;>ted to effect the sale. of the en
tlre authorized lasue of 110.000.000 pre?
ferred but never aucceeded ln dlstribut
ore than 14.000 000.
Ownarahlp of tho common has always
. rather nebulous. but lt has been
the taclt understondlng that this con
trolllng 1100,000 of common was held
l | certaln truetees not antagonlstlc to
the New Haven Rallroad.
It ls aald that thla sale waa planned
before Mr. Mellen realgned the presl
dency of tho road and does not neces
r-arlly mean tho dlslntegratlon of the
New Haven trolley eystem.
Worcester. Mtsa., July 81.?Colonel A
George BuUcck, of 'Worcester, one of the
board of truateea of tho New England
Rallways and Investment Company, aald
,to-day: "As to tho aaery that the Naar
IHaven la to bo released from the Intereat
guarantees on tho preferred stock, they
cannot bo released. That atatement la ab
