Atto'ney-General James C. Mcltr ynolds,
dllcuulng the case of the New Haven
Tallro.nl, made It clear yesterday that
1t Is the iiollcy of President Wilson to
curb trusts without recourse to the courts
Tvhercver possible.
Mr. Mclteynolds leferred to the desire
of IVfuMnr't Wilson not to Interfere with
honest buslrs ami to give every' rea
ponnb1! aid to peron or corporations
that iwl 'o comply with the law. He
praised work au l the plans of the .
President nnil said that Mr. Wilson wished j
not only to help honest biHness. but In j
tin case of the New ll.ivn railroad both ,
the President and he himself wanted to ilo
ver thing to conserve as far as possible
the Intel ests of Investors.
Mr. Mclteynolils spoke of his own work
In the leorganlzatloti of his Department,
lie hxltt that so tremendous has be
come the work of the Department that
there Is enough work for one man. with
out considering the necessary steps of
reorganizing the Department or the new
business that constantly comes up. '

Ho would like lo have the Department
of Justice run like a large law oltlce. '
and his aim Irf to bring about reform and
bettei conditions by suggestions rather
than by long and expensive litigation. He
said that many things already have been
accomplished In this way without pub
licity, because corporations In many In
stances have shown a desire to follow I on December 15. Assurances made by

of the big problem no -onfronting them
within a nnsonable time there would b-

jnust lie obejeil.
The Altorney-Ueneral In his apartment
In 'J Kant Thirty-ninth stieet talked freely
and Itrmly concerning the New Haven
IM-oblein. He made It clear that the policy
of the Administration had been outlined
thoroughly to Howard Ulllott, chairman
of tho New Haven, and there could re
main no doubt In Chairman Klllott's mind
as to what the Administration wanted
u Time Limit Set.
No time limit has been fret. The Attorney-General
realizes that It has taken
twenty years for the New Haven to bring
about the muddle, as he terms It, In which
the new directors now rind things and
that It will not be possible for the board
or any gtoup of lawyers to work out a
solution in ten minutes.
Mr. Mclteynolils said he was hopeful
lhat a reorganization suitable to the Ad
ministration would be worked out and
that he was ready to extend help In every
reasonable way, because he thought that
J'resldent Klllott teemed to have taken
that view of the situaflon and because he
believed that the selection of President
lladley of Vale University as a director
of tho rond was a hopeful sign.
Mr. Mclteynolds was emphatic in
KaylrA' that a monopoly exists i4b
. competition must bo restored through
Soot New Knclancl. How that can be done.
'he did riot explain In detail, as he Is will
Inr to wait mid see If the new board of
the Now Haven offers a plan
lie said that his views on dissolution
of big coiporatlons were well known and
hn mndn'lt clear that if you takn a blp
corporation, divide It Into live parts and
give to the holders of stock In the big cor.
porutlon a proportionate amount of stock
In tho tlvo smaller concerns you do not
bring about competition.
srtist Quit Sea l July.
In tho course of the conversation he
nald Jhat tho New Haven must get rid of
ita steamship companies by next July. As
to the ownership of the trolley lines th
Attorney-General would make no comment
exof. lo say that If tho New Haven did
a mi u I re tho various trolley lines ut ex
orbitant pflces. that fact was vital as
Hbowlng tho purpose the New Haven
board had In mind In making the pur
chase years ago.
The Investigations which the Depart
ment of Justice have made show that the
Kltuatlon In New Kngland Is really aerlous
and that the people of New Kngland are
crying out'for relief.
In tho Attorney-General's opinion, how
ever, a remedy should be worked out that
will consent the Interest of the Investor.
It U with that aim In view that Mr.
UuHny noldn U willing to dispense with legal
action If the directors show the proper
spirit In working out a method of rcstor.
