Even Mr. Brandeis Now Admits That the Railroads Have Been Starved. The Inter-tale Commer?a Commission'-- policy ut starving thd railroads Into submission must he lu I bad way when Iymls D? Kranib-ls wasbCO Ma hands of it. Mr. ltrandeis was ernplnyod by the commission bb apodal counsel chiefly for Um pur? pose of bolstering op with the from weight of ble authority tu* n mirado worker from the outside In rallroml pgopartlea the comfortable theory that th* troubles of the railroads with shrinkinp revennoa ;ind mounting expenses are largely laaaglnary. Ha hnd InUmated repeatedly that if ha had charge ot th?' railroad syst?me all ihe caraa that infest dlrec tors' and atockholdei -' meetings wiyold fold their touts like- the Araba and fis silently steal awaj The commission wss therefore Justified In retain lug Mm bb b speciallsl highly qualified t<. deVfeod the theory thai the railroads insioad <.r belo?? Btarvod and famished have bean only for health's I sake n little underfed. What luis caused Mr. Brand?is to enroll bjmaell among the propheta of rationality and common sen-e'.- In COOCltldlng hK arpument agglasl rate 10 croaati before the commlaaton on Friday hi? said: On the whole, the net income? and net operating revenases of the rallroada In oitioial classification ter? ritory are smaller than is consistsnt with their as? sured prosperity and the welfare of th^ community, and this la notably true of the Central Freight ap?o i latlon snd other Bastern lines-, in view of this fact, it is desirable thai steps should be taken us promptly nably may be to increase this net revenue. That is rank heresy from the point of view of the starvation shootera ii la in our opinion no. very material that Mr. Brandeia tried to square him self with the ci.nlsslon's programme of the last four years by saying thai the carriers' plan f?r rnislnc additional revenue through increased freight ' rates bj ti"t the best nOSSlblS plan of r?cup?ration. ? The commlsBlon'a advlaar still clings to the notion] that the cutting "ft' of conceanriona hitherto allowed to industrial spur linea ;<n>\ other administrativa refiirnis will bring In all the additional revenu'' r.i'4'ded. Yel the commission knows ;(s well as .Mr. Brandeia il"e< that such nn abolition of favors to bag Industrial plants will work very unequally with different rnJIroads. Boma systems may profit con? sidcral?l,\. while others will bo very little benefited. \'o real remedy for the situation which Mr. Brande!" baa himself so graphically described could be found in i makeshift which vTould leave the weaker roads still short of revenue and slowly but rarely drift ine toward bankruptcy, It Is hiehly desirable that the Concessions to Industrial BPUT lines and other localized favors of n similar charactar should he dlsconttnuad. stock howlers will be benefited by a stricter supervision sf the relations ol the common carriers to lug ship pera. Bul ilie balance between the road? and the. shipping public, upset by B long series Of povern asental demanda for Baler and costlier service, can he properly restored only by granting the road* some direct general compensation fv>r the larger burdens which they bave been forced to assume. ' An Increase Of freight rales for all would be only i fair ' that msnj larsre todies of shipper* are heartily in favor of it The country wants to ? e rates advanced because il realizes that the present situation is not "consisten!

No one accused Mr. Brady "f baring shared i the largo financia] tranaactions ?>f th?' road not under scrutiny. His examination was frankly fishing excursion, and nothing veas ?:tucrht save tli effulgence of (he witness's personality. Hut lurnin that effulgence upon the whole situation, we fin? an illuminating thouchi like tlii*: I Vivo made my motic during the forty-four yeai since I started as a bos m the raUroad bus..' my own wsy and m ms prnato capacity, and th way to fortune is my private business, and no on knows anything aboul it.

Other great men concerned in New Haven finance who so far forget their boyhood way of doing thine as to keep books have since done what they COUi< to rectify their error.

The Drama "Uplift-'' of the various whys for bringing better audion? e? and better plays together discussed at the "drams luncheon" of the City Club the most practical was lhat suggested by Mr Walter Friohard Baton. Ueduce the prices. said he. an<l there'll be 00 trouble In getting audiences for good plays where BOW audiences exist for popular ones. His experience told him that under present conditions the theatri? cal managers couldn't be expected to redu'-e prices much, so the remedy was t" be applied in the form of a municipal or suhsidi/.ed theatre, like the one at Northampton. Mass. '"Reform" 1n stage affairs, like reform everywhere else, niu<*t go from the bottom up. n?if from the to,? dOWB, if it Is to be worth a continental. The an dietice, the purchasers, will always get what they want Hut it Is not true that the average audience which makes a play a commercial succ?s? is typical of the theatrical taste of the community. There h a very large element which ?-hooses carefully It* plays, because It can afford to go seldom, and fre quentjy omits attending "goo?l" plays?plays labelbni "good" and worthy of support by critics, drama societies and kindred setters of standards?be?'ause the family treasury Is low.
