THE SUN, WEDNESDAY, APRIL 26, 1916. i w Hi? REA SAYS L. I. R. R. IS 50 YEARS AHEAD Pennsy President, Testifying in Minority's $28,000,000 Suit, Defends Plans. 'SAVED KKOM SCKAI'IIKAI" Samuel Ilea, president of the Penn sylvania Uitllroail, testified before Su preme Court Justice I.elinmn yesterday in u suit brought by Dick Hros. & Co., the Stock Kxchnngo tlrm, In behalf of the minority stockholders of tho Long Island Railroad to ncover 128,000.000 from Mr. Ufa and other directors of the lionff Inland who arc also olllcliilM of the retmtytvnma. Jle said that ho never found any conlllct between his duties as picsldent of tho Pennsylvania and director of tint Ixrng Inland. The minority stockholders rontend that the ynst expenditures made by tho Iaiiik Inland In recent yearn were really In the Intercut of the Pennsylvania. In his tes testimony President Itca said: "Ah I wan a director of both roads you may lent nssiited that whenever I attended a meeting of the directors of tho Long Inland company I voted and acted for tho best Interest of nil the stockholders and not for any particular Broup of stockholders. Cor many years before tho successful electrification of railroads within commuting distance of the large cities the. Pennsylvania Hall road sought an entrance Into the heart of New York city, realizing that to compcto wllh the New York Central pome such terminal within the city was absolutely necessary. First Had llnilson Br III Be IMan. "The Pennsylvania first wanted to eome across tho much talked of Hudson Illvcr bridge, which was before the elec trification of roads was an assured suc cess. As soon ns practicable the Idea Df tube connections Into New York was car ried out. Those tube connections will eventually be Just as profttahle to thr. Ixmg Island as they are proportionately to the Pennsylvania1 Hallroad. "The Mistake the minority stock holders make Is In supposing that a road can remain stationary. The directors In spending the lIMOO.Onn which thj minority shareholders think Is Innulll clently remunerative were planning at Itant fifty years nlio.cd as all good rail road directors ought to do. It wa only 'a question of time when the Improve ments would have had to be made or the leong Island would have been relegated to the scrap heap." Mr. Ilea testified that he made an .ln apectlon trip over the Iong Island when the Pennsylvania first got control and found the road "very much run down." "It wan what we call 11 local road, tie said. "Thr toad was not paying ex- penses, It hail little credit and tratllc was very uncertain. During the Hum mer months the trafllc was large, hut during the remainder of tho year It was light. .In making our Improvements we picserved all the local business of the road, which was very beneflcl.il." Home Testimony Mtrlckrn Out. Mr. Rea testified that the Long Island road ulwayn luid a "free hand" In deter mining all quest "nns, but on objection by 1. Iiflln Kellogg, counsel fur the plain tiff, the court struck out this testimony. Tho court remarked that while the road might have had u free hand, the same might not have been true of the di rectors. "Kverythlm; that related to the upend ing of money was fully discussed b'forc We took action," said Mr. Urn. "Thfc Improvements we made at Jamaica were the salvation of the coinp-.iny There ha.1 luwn rnveittm nf ni-op II, OOII Anil In fli'. 1 ,.1, J. V . ;,it ,.V thl i.,,., ,u . ' ' , years as a rtsult of the Jam.ilcii Im provement." Why was so much money spent?'' "It Is general In railroad affairs to look Into tin- future and deal with future reeds In order that we may not be found tinprepaied when the Improvements nro nnlly needed," said Mr Ilea, "It was for this reason that the Kast New York and Ilay Itldge Improvement were made. They, will I valuable assets In fho future." The case will go on to-day. 'SINCLAIR OIL TO SELL BONUS. JTrvr York S ii.llcnte Will Take ail,(MMI,(HMt Issnr.

Refined sugar yesterday moved an other step upward In the rise which has followed the resumption of heavy foreign buying In the local market about a month ago. Local refiners quoted It at T.40 cents, a rise of .10 and. .15 cents a pound, while Philadelphia refineries rained their prices to 7.50 cents, equal ling the record high which was reached In August, 1914. Tho price of refined sug.ir a year ago was 5.90 cents a pound. At tho same time, the raw market for Fpot sugar advanced M Vi points, to fi.39 cenUi ii pound, a record price for tho year and only 14 'lower than tho record high registered In August, 1914, j .Some 14,000 bags of April shipments irom wunn were purcrtasco uy rentiers, which was responsible for this rise. While there nro plentiful utocks of raw sugar on hand In Cuba, refiners report that they arc unable to obtain more than enough to keep them going because of the dinicultles In getting freight space. Manuel Hlonda, president of the Cuba Cane Sugar Corporation, In a letter which has lt en mado public by J, & W. Sellgman for the benefit of share holders, states that .In view of the pre vailing price of 5 cents a pound on sugar It Is not unreasonable to assume that tho profits of the corporation will exceed 120 a share on common stock after the payment of preferred dm (lends. It was estimated by him at the time of the Incorporation that the earn ings on tho properties should reach IIS it share. Mr. Hlonda sums up the sugar outlook as follows: "The prospects of a continuation of high prices for sugar during the next season (1916-1917) aro unusually good. The European war has cut off a large part of the supply of the world's beet sugar, and under no conceivable con ditions can this deficiency be made up by additional sowings In time for next year s crop. "Itegardlcss. however, of the existing conditions, which are unusually favor able to the Industry, Cuba can produce sugar more cheaply than any other coun try; It 'has an advantage In cost ot production of at least 'j cent a pound over any other producer. In addition, Cuba has by treaty with the United .States a differential of 20 ikt cent. In Its tavor, so that, so long as there Is a tariff duty on sugar entering the United States, Cuba has an advantage of that amount as against all the rest of the world except I'orto Illco, Hawaii and the Philippines, none of which coun tries can compete with Cuba without a protective duty and with nil of which Cuba can suoeewafully compete, even with the present duty." . BUSINESS LIES CONVICT HIM. v Wins First Action Here for MHllliiir False atatruirnta. Julius Wunsch, president of the Venus Silk (Hove Manufacturing Company of S Hey ward street, Hrooklyn, and 229 Fourth avenue, Manhattan, was founu guilty In Hrooklyn yesterday of using the malls In n sclnme to defraud cred itors by sending out false statements ns to the financial condition nf his business.

MERCANTILE MARINE CONTINUES TO SOAR Heavy Ruyinj; of Proft'iTml for American International Is Reported. More th.in 10,200 shares uf Inter national Mercantile Marine preferred stock were traded In on the Slock K. change esterday and more than SO.000 shares of tho common changed hands. i The preferred opened nt S211.S3, and me nign lor ine aay was i ne common opened at 24-23' and the high was 2.r.U. Tho continued strength In the pre fened and common stocks of the Inter national Mercantile Marine Company Is attributed In well Informed clrides to two things. First, It Is understood In Mome quarters that there has lieen heavy buying of the preferred stock In the past few days for the account of the Amefl can International Corporation, and see ond, It h reported that the preferred and common stock holders have almost reached an agreement .regarding the plan for the reorganization of the com pany. Hankers in close touch with the affairs of the International Mercantile Marine Company were Inclined yesterday to be lieve the report that the American Inter national Corporation has been buying both the preferred and common stock with the view of obtaining about 25 per cent, of each class and thereby gaining repre sentatlon ill one of the biggest of tho shipping companies. Frank A. Vnnder llp, chairman of the board, refused to comment on the report estcrday. Late yesterday It was learned In au thoritative quarter that the American International Corporation has succeeded In acquiring nil tho preferred desired, and It was also stated that the common stock Is being purchased for the same corporation.
