' Letter C Suargeatloau
President Meilea, of the New York,
Kew Haven and Hartford railroad, yes
terday made a'statement relative to the
atory sent out from Philadelphia con
cerning an alleged deal between the
Consolidated , railroad and the Lehlgb.
Coal and Navigation company for the
purchase of the latter and the state
ment follows:
,"A party came to me unsolicited and
asked me to look Into the Lehigh Coal
and Navigation company property,
suggesting that I secure Information
regarding its value. As a result, and
at the request of that party, I wrote the
following letter to Mr. Fowler:
"The New York,. New Haven and Hart
ford Railroad Company,
; ' "President' Office
"New Havers Conn., Nov. i, 1904.
Mr. T. P. .Fowler, President New
York, Ontaioand "Western Railway,
58 Beaver Street, New York: .
Dear sir jut. jjiCKinson nas laiiieu
with me to-day regarding the Lehigh
Coal and Navigation company's prop
erty; It is a matter that is in a large
measure new to me, and I hava had no
opportunity to confer with my direc
tors regarding the same, but I certainly
feel it wise you -should proceed with the
matter to the extent that you can lay
before me, tor submission to my people,
a definite proposition with your recom
mendation In the premises. I am not
prepared to express an opinion, for I
have had no opportunity to discuss the
subject, but I certainly believe our peo
ple, with their large interest in your
company, will be disposed to favor any
thing that, will promote its earnings
and prosperity.
, "Very truly yours,
"The letter shows for itself and com
mitted me in no way upon the subject,
and was purely a request for informa
tion and a recommendation. I was In
formed on Monday last that the Lehigh
Coal and Navigation company's stock
could be had , at a price which was
named and I declined to consider the
purchase. The matter did not even ap
peal to me sufficiently to warrant my
calling the same to the attention of any
of the members of my board of direct
tors. The letter published from Phila
delphia was requested of me by ; long
distance telephone on Monday evening
by Mr. Riley, of the Lehigh Coal and
Navigation company, and a copy of the
same was cheerfully sent. I am not
aware of any difference of opinion be
tween Mr. Fowler and myself in con
nection with this matter."

from 7: 30 to . It is a clean, moral and
mstnictlve'' 'performance entitled the
"Girl la the Moon." It Is not a side
show or a museum, but a work of art,
something the audience" never tires of
looking at and which people will go- a
number of times to see. The "Girl in

land. The performance opens first by
Introducing two ladies, and. while- the

appears, leaving the crescent. Then in
place of the crescent is introduced a
chair With a lady seated in the same.
Then placing two palm trees, one at
each side of the chair, the leaves van
ish from the trees, leaving the stalks.
Then the lady leaves the chair, and in
place appears a beautiful cross with a
lady plinglng to it. This scene looks
like a marble statue, which turns to life
Immediately. : Then the lady disap
pears, leaving the cross In plain view.
Next ; the cross disappears, leaving a
basket of flowers with both ladies seat
ed in the same. These changes are all
made without drawing the curtains any
time during the performance. AH these
changes are all made in plain view
without; the use of looking glasses or
mirrors, which makes it a very start
ling performance to the public. The
"Girl in the Moon'; is the first illusion
of this kind ever shown to the puglic.
It Is a pleasing and also very mystify

talk whereever It is displayed. It is
