The brief attacks Louis D, Hrandeis, I who assumed a leading part In the In- vestlgntlon, and says that the New Ha I ven is itltacketl by Mr. Brandels alone with a destructive criticism of Its ser vice, lis rates and Its financial and ac counting methods. Tho brief adds: 1 "Shall Mr. Hrandeis, acting for hlm I self, his theory and contentions being disapproved again and ngaln by Im ! nartlul commissions and tribunals, be permitted to, set tip and maintain tils opinion against the opinion of men ap pointed by the stockholders of these I mails to conduct their affairs?

A comparison of rates on other tallinads I- submitted in support of the argument that railroad rates In New England aie very low. While not admitting that the charge of unsatisfactory service has been proved iigalnsl the New York. New Haven and Hartford ami the lines which this corporation controls, the makers of this brief agree that there are abundant opportunities for improve ment. P.iislness Is ronstnntly growing and a gicat tb-il of money must bp ex pended if the railroad aie to keep up. l'leisht cars and locomotives are needed, pit tlculai ly by the Hostnn and Maine. To Issue stock would bring in ni'ine.v. but the laws, of Massachusetts place' restrictions on the sale of stock which make It difficult 10 raise money. The rnlltoad officials say that In order to finance needed Improvements 11 is neressarv that stock shall lie disponed of In large quantities at par or higher. Hie only way to place stock on sucli a basis Is to Increase the net earnings of the rallmatl so that a substantial divi dend may be paid, and the only way to Increase the net earnings Is lo increase the charges for M-rvlce to the public. As for the service on the New Eng land railroads. It Is Insisted that the evi dence discloses no widespread dlssatls- fditlon. The Moslnn and Maine I'.allto.-id alone makes over 10,000,000 shipments In a year, and less than a thousand com plaints appear on the record against thi leading lallio.ids In New England. l'lgiires ate submitted to show thin more than !'." per rent, of shipments from lirldgepott, Conn., move In not mil tlmo and wit hln one day of niirmnl time, while sit per cent, of shipments from Nashua, N, H-. do the same. As f u- passenger son lee, the state ment Is made that It would appear from the leiords that the New England rail roads have shown better performances than the average of the roads repnitlng to the Public Scrvlte Commission In New York State, lleports from May, 1909, to August, litis, show lhat the New- Haven hail a higher percentage of trains on time than the Pennsylvania, the New York Central, the Erie, the LehlKh Val ley or Ihe Delaware, Lackawanna and Western roads. The complaint that the lloston and Maine Itallrnad has been unfairly treated by the New Haven road since It came under lis control Is denied. Th atten tion of the commission In directed to the fact that the Public Service Commission of New Hampshire, having Louis D. ifrnndels us Its counsel, Investigated a rate Increase on the subsidiary road, with the result that the evidence showed that not a single Joint rate hail been charged 10 the disadvantage of the Huston and Maine. It was also shown lhat various diversions of truffle did not result to the disadvantage of the liaston and Maine, that supplies were furnished In It at fair jp-lcM and that in general th control f exercised by the New Haven road had brought Improvement In efficiency. Fifty-four pages of the printed brief deal with the financial and accounting methods of the New Haven company. President Mellen Is vigorously defended and It I declated thut every one of his' financial undertakings was carried out with the knowledge and consent of the hoard of directors and for the benefit of the railroad alone. It Is pointed out that the stockholders could at any time remove Mr, Mellen did they so desire. It Is averred that the stock of the company Is owned by men and women living In New England and that the mention of certain names among them Is guarantee for the in tegrity of any operation sanctioned by them.

The Senator linielf expressed the opinion to-day th.it It was very doubtful If his resolution would be adopted by the Senate. , Tlie matter vviij discussed for nearly two hours to-day by Senator Ooff. He. publican, of West Virginia, who de clared that the Senate would exceeil Its Jurisdiction If It attempted lo probe the West Virginia labm 11 unities. "The Senate can learn nothing and can do nothing through this Investiga tion." said Senator Goff. "It Is within thp Senate's province only to determine whether the court martial order was Il legal or legal. Alleged brutalities and drumhT.d tourt martlals are not ques tions within the authority of the Senate to Investigate." The Senator defended the decision of tlie supremo Court of Appeals of West Virginia, which upheld the action of C.ov. Hatfield and affirmed the Judgments rendered by the various 'military courts In pursuance of his orders. "You can't war with kid gloves." said Senator Goff. "Necessarily court mar tial and special commissions created ti meet such extraordinary conditions have pnner lo suspend the civil ntlthor it Theie never was a (lovernmrnt or. ganlzed that did not posess the Inher ent power In protect Itself.
