If not in the old ways. politicians have been Interested in it from the beginning Its principal and practically its only asset from the begin ning has been its franchise. It has sup plied just enough electricity to keep the franchise alive According to the latest manuals It had in osration eleven meters, eighteen arc lights and as l Incandescent lights. Politicians are still interested in it and also interested In thnt most im portant transaction of Its career which occurred yesterday John C Sheehan is vice-president and In actual control as far us the stock goes. The other officers and directors are James F. Shaw, president; O. U. Corbin, secre tary; und treasurer, George E. Ilouchio, W. II. Knight, W. M. (lullck. John C Sheehan, James V Shaw, W R Sheldon and O. H. Corbin, directors Politicians of greater prominence in the city could be found among the liM of tho share holders. The majority of the stock of the Long Acre company is held nt least nominally by the Manhattan Transit Company, successor to thoGenera! Carriage Company of O.

Morse on tho other brought about tho collapse of n pool In United Cop per stock October It. 1H07, and preoipl tated tho panic from which the country Is only now fully recovered. Xtr. Hoadley is still president of the Manhattan Transit Company, but has disclaimed control of the compnnv since ! the entrnnce of John C. Sheehan nnd his associates into Long Acre affairs two or three years ago Whatever the value or the validity of the other intangible assets, there Is no doubt whatever thnt the electric light franchise which the Manhattan Transit controlled through Its control of the I,ong Acre stock was n real though intangible asset. That fact has been established in the courts in the course of a long and bitter litigation between the long Acre company and the Edison company. Tho most important law suit was liegun as long ago as ltioe, when Supreme Court Justice Dowllng granted a peremptory mandamus to compel the Consolidated Telegraph nnd Electrio Subway Com pany, whose conduits nre used by the Edison company, to permit the I.ong Acre company the use of its conduits for a cable, The mandamus has since lieen upheld by the Appellate Division and the Collrt nf Appeals Again nn application of tho company to Issue $10,000,000 preferred stock and $50,000,000 bonds so thut it might begin business In earnest wns refused by the ,10' having Keen propitious. Thn Manhattan Transit Company. which controls the majority of tho out standing $.Vi,ikhi stock of tho long Aero Company, has Itself $fl,ono,iKKi stock out standing Tlio stock has been kicked around tho curb market for years and could be bought yesterday nt $1 78 a share It is probable that negotiations are under way for transfer of control of the slock of the long Acre Company to tho same peopl't who bought tho control of thn bonds, However, that is not considered essential to the control of the long Acre Company Control of tho bonds with the power of foreclosure is regarded ns suf. Iloierit Thn upshot of yesterday's transaction accordingly seems to be that, though trivial In the mony involved, it relieves the Consolidated Oas nnd EdKm Electrio companies of the menace of competition, strengthens their control of the gas and electrio lighting and gas nnd electrio heating business In Manhattan and The Bronx.
