The flames from (he burning plant Illuminated the whole country side and thousands awakened from sleep watched the fire. The plant was In the center of a well-to-do residential district and while ten companies directed their bose on the flaming structure, the others bent their efforts toward saving the dwellings.

So well did the firemen work that tho dwellings were saved, although in many instances the paint was scorched from houses and tongues of flames shot through broken windows and ig nited the Inside woodwork. An hour after the fire started the walls and the roof were tumbling In, although the fire companies from Mt. Holly.

Ousting a little deeper Into the fu ture, Mr. Lee snid he did not believe the motortruck and the nirplane will cut into the business of the railroads. Those transportation agencies, he snid. will develop fields of their own. The tele phone, he nrgued, has not supplanted the telcsranh. "The situntion is that owners of rail road bonds may justly claim not only tho highest couccivnble legal, but also moral right to expect thnt the integrltv of their savings nnd investments will bo fully protected." he snid. "I stress the moral element because it enters Into the value and stability of investments just ns surely as tho legal and economic considerations. "This applies just ns aptly to the stockholders of the railroads ns to the bondholders because railroad stock as a whole represents real value and honest Investments. Indeed.

"It Is more than conservntlve to sa that for every dollar of Pennsylvania Railroad stock there are at lenst $2 worth of equity in tangible property over nnd above Indebtedness, yet Penn sylvania stock is sold todny at a de preciation of one-third its par value and the directors have had no choice but to reduce for tho time, ut least, the long-established and moderate dividend of 0 per cent."
