NEW HAVEN MORSilKd JOOENAL AND COURIER, TUESDAY JUNE JfcJ 1907 ASKS BOARD OF PUBLICJJTILITIES Governor Sends Special Mes sage in Requesting Authority to Appoint. A PUBLIC SERVICE CORPORATION BILL Chief Executive Believes Commission Should be Named to Frame One. t Governor Rollln S. "Woodruff sent a special message to the house of rep resentatives yesterday, recommending that the governor be authorized by the general assembly to appoint a special commission of five members to con sider the charters and laws governing public service corporations. The com mission is to be appointed with a view of arriving at and recommending a general law covering all public ser vice corporations. The governor expresses the opinion that final adjournment o the present session of the general assembly Is so near at hand that the session cannot give the general subject of public ser vice corporations the attention which Its importance merits, therefore he de sires the appointment of a commis sion. The message is as follows: To the Honorable General Assembly: The conclusion of the general as sembly's labors at this session is so near at hand that is Is probable Im possible for your honorable body to give the consideration that the impor tance of its merits to any general sta tute of such a nature as I beg leave to recommend In this message. But I be lieve that this general assembly can ;give' the initiative to a course,of legis lation which can be followed by the '.next general assembly to the ultimate 'benefit of the state's business, econo mic and social conditions, if your hon orable body authorizes the governor to appoint such a commission of investt "gation as I shall herein urge. ' I have in a previous message refer red to the dtssimHIarrty fn the provis ions of many of the charters granted by this and previous general assem 'bliet to public service corporations. -Some have power that are specifically tllmited; others have powers that are very broad and quite beyond the scope of such business as their main pur pose and their corporate title would 'seem to Indicate to be the purpose of the incorporators. Still others have indefinite and latituflinous powers that imay, under a kindly construction, per mlt the incorporators to change the ;maln purpose from one to another line tot industry, or to carry on at the same time a variety of business. This chaotic 'eenditton I believe to be Inimical to the , best interests of the state and the wel fare of the people. It' results in a confusion that is unnecessary and the . influence, of such a condition is that it encourages promoters who are some times not men of financial stability to , seeek the general assembly of the state of Connecticut for special privileges ' that should not be granted to anyone privileges that are peculiarly suscep 'tible to abuse and 'to the detriment of public interests. I believe that a gen eral statute or chapter or statutes can "be devised by a special commission, composed 'of men who are expert in that line of Study, to cover the entire 'field of public ' service corporations. Such legislation should 'take into con sideration the Interests of the three 'classes of our citians who have an In terest more or less vital in public ser vice corporations, the Incorporator or 'stockholder, the bondholders, and also -the general public that patronize the service rendered? by the corporation. - I would recommend that this honor ttble general assembly authorize the governor at this session to appoint a special committee of five members to consider the charters and laws govern dng public service corporations, with the view of arriving at and reeommend; 4ng a general law covering all public iervice corporations which are now In existence and which will hereafter be , (organised in this state. .". I would urge that, if in the wisdom of -he general assembly, such authority la given to the governor, the commis nlon be ordered to report to the next general assembly, in the first week of ,its session, such general recommenda tions as may to ft seem wise and prop er, together with a draft of such stat utes as may .be deemed expedient, for consideration. I believe that a comrnls jslon such as is urged could make rec ommendations that would be compre hensive in scope, fair "to the people of ihe state, as well as to the corporate Interests concerned, and give opportu nity to the next general assembly to do jconstructive legislation in the course .of one session that will bs of. the greatest and most lasting benefit to the state. - I would suggest that if the com mission be appointed the general as sembly, authorize the comptroller ;. to draw upon the state treasurer for funds to pay the necessary expenses that may be incurred by the commis sion in the prosecution of its investiga tions, but the members of such com mission to serve without salary. Mr. Banks, of Fairfield, said that the committee on the judiciary voted last Week to ask the governor to appear 'before the committee for the purpose Of discussing the subjects treated in the message. Senate Chairman Walsh and Mr. Banks had been appointed a committee to so inform the governor. Therefore, Mr. Banks thought that the message" should go to the judiciary committee. On his motion the mes sage was so referred, and was trans ferred, to the senate under suspension ot the rules. ; 'So Extcnxton for Shad Season. Thompsonville, June 17. George T. Mathewson, a member of the fish and pame commlslon, B&id this evening that the commissioners have not leaned their usual order extending the open season for shad beyond June 21, and that they probably will not do so this year. The apparent shortage of shad this year seems to the commissioners sufficient reason for not extending the season. LIGHT WORK FOR YALE OARSMEN Take Breathing Spell and Nothing of Importance in Practice. MEN VERY CONFIDENT Yale Boat Shows Much Better Form Than Harvard's. (From Special Staff CorresDondcnt.V- Yale Headquarters, Gales Ferry, June 17. The first really warm day this summer was welcomed at Broadview Monday. Since the crews arrived at training quarters the temperature has been very low and mornings and even ings cold and cheerless. Sunday, of course, was a fine day, but not nearly so bat bs Monday. Lifter the strenuous work of last week the oarsmen had a breathing spelt to-day there being nothing of special importance in the practice, which was easy for all crews. The work has been well done above quarters, the morning practice being very light. John Ken nedy appears to be thoroughly satisfied with the conditions of his men and with the way they are responding to his in structions. The 'varsity eight is in what might easily bs termed race day form already, the showing made by the crew b?ing favorably criticised and commented upon by capable judges of good oarsmanship, There is little more to be required of this crew than that it shall row just as well on June. 27 as It rowed to-day and all that Coach Kennedy has to do to ensure the Tale shell giving a good ac count of itself regatta day is to keep the men where they are. As an exhibi tion of clean, gnished oarsmanship, the practice is a treat to those who know tho finer points of the art of manipulat ing sweeps and shell. To-night, rowing easily against the wind, the shell spaced finely. A comparison of the blue and crim son 'varsity eights was. aptly made en the river Sunday by . an old oarsman who has paid close attention to the an nual training for a number of years. Asked for his opinion as to the merits of the respective crews, fie said that, while it is an impossibility" at this stage of the training to pick out the winner, and folly to attempt to say how. the race will go, the Yale eight, In his opinion, was to-day anywhere from tvyo to four lengths better over the four mile course Jhan the crew of 1906. Harvard has a stronger crew so far as actual weight and muscle goes, but he figured that the wear . arid tear of the Harvard stroke takes. more out of the crew than the easy, smooth stroke row ed by Yalo. ; The faults observable. In Harvard earlier In the season, before the crows left tho Charles river, arc equally prominent now. The hang Just, ahead of the catch is easily discerned, devel oping a decided check. The stroke, too, Is clipped pronouncedly at both ends. If Jim Wray can eliminate these de fects before the day of the race and still preserve the brawn he now has in his eight Harvard's prospects will be brighter. A prominent feature of Yale's crew this year is its perfect alignment, the men in this respect being remarkably superior to Harvard, where this part of the training would seem to have been neglected. The crimson eight looks better on rowing form than last week, while pulling a low stroke, but when the pace is hit up above 32 the defects mentioned are aggravated to a marked degree. ' " To-night Kennedy ' took the crews above Broadview heading the four oar boat's first. Coming down from Allyn's Point with the ebb tide, a pretty brush was seen at the finish, the "varsity four coming n ahead by an easy six or seven, lengths. The "varsity four Is developing Into ft fine crew and one which should hold its own with any four oar In the world over a two mile course. The men are strofig, confident in their skill, and row together like a piece of machinery. Harvard on the other hand is having all kinds of trcuble with her four oars. 'When Kennedy had finished with the fours he took the two eights up 'above Allyn's Point together. No racing was attempted, the Instructions to the fresh men being 'to catch the "varsity stroke and keep along. The .pace set was a slow one, never raised above 32 even at the finish of the home run. The 'var sity eight was rowing beautifully and thti freshmen, although their work on I the upturn Was rather ragged at first, ! settled down to good rowing coming ; down. I Carlyle P. Wlnslow, who was cox- I swatn of the 'varsity eight in 1904 and , held the place during the early period of the training in 1995, but was re- : placed by Barkalow before the race be cause he couldn't got down to weight, was a visitor in Yale quarters to-day : and watched the practice from the launch. Mr. Wlnslow is just as much ' nn enthuslaf; over boating now as ever , and when asked what he thought of the crew said emphatically they looked good to him. Mr. Wlnslow Is now re siding at Niagara Falls, and was giv en, a rousing welcome by his old 'var- , sity chums. I Another old Yale oarsman, William D. Harris of Minneapolis, who rowed at No. 2 in the 'varsity four-oar in 1906, arrived at Broadview Monday ev ening, but 'too late to see the practice. Interest centers In the series of three baseball games which will be played this afternoon between Yale 'varsity and freshmen. The two squads will each' have a meeting and select cap tains and teams before the games. Julian W. Curtiss is expected to be present and help 'the boys out with the games. Nearly all the boys at Yale quarters had a good observation of the peculiar suu spot which was prominent Monday evening. The atmospheric conditions prevailing in the evening rendered the use of the powerful telescope on the piazza possible. Some Harvard Gossip, Another case of mumps has upset the freshmen crews, Buxton at No. 4, on the eight being out of the shell and quarantined In & cottage on the hill. Vogel, wo was tried in his pace, made a poor showing, being out of rythm ; with the others in the shell. The row- I ing of the whole crew left room for im provement Phil Wyman, out of hospl- , tal and convalescent, is with the fresh men at Red Top, but is having his meals apart from the others. Ha may possibly be used again this year, still H is scarcely probable. Among Harvard visitors to-day are J. F. (Kip) Perkins of the '99 class, who will stay over Sunday and A. Stev ens of '99 class. "Pirate" Blake one of Harvard's best old oars and one of the members of the most famous crew which ever carried the crimson flag to victory on the Thames, returned to his home to night after spending a few days in quarters. Those familiar with old row ing days recollect Blake's crew as be ing dubbed the "Water Rats." They were indefatigable always rdwlng and it used to be said of them that they would race anything from a soal barge to a twenty-knot steamer. W. Blair, manager of Yale crew, was entertained at Red Top to-day by Cap tain Bacon. Along the river and In New London, Yale Is at present decidedly the choice for winning and unless great alteration, Is made in the forms of the respectable crews it looks like Yale for all three races. : ' I Teddy, Junior, Forgets, I Theodore Roosevelt, Jr., assistant manager of Harvard crews, got himself into serious trouble Monday and Just what punishment will fall to his lot has not been divulged. " One of his duties 13 to attend to bringing the mall from New London to Red Top daily. Now the young maa has a decided Inclination for fishing! and hunting and like most other young men, and old ones, too, with this bent, ha cannot resist the temptation to stop and Inspect the tackle shops in New London, generally investing most of his spare change before boarding the launch. Monday he was so absorbed In examining fishing tackle that he forgot all about the mail and absent-mindedly returned to Red Top without It. What happened Harvard men will not say, but Teddy had to right about face quickly, got aboard Guy Norman's speedy launch and make a second trip to the postofflce for the neglected mall. HARVARD IN POOR FORI. MEN NEVER TOGETHER Coach Wray Does Not Seem Well Satisfied With Their Work. (By Assoplated Press.) ' J. : Bed Top, June 17. The work of the Harvard crews was not up td their usual standard to-day. During the early part of the morning the 'varsity eight did wejl. but later they fell away and the boat was never to-gether. The same thing happened during the after noon until near the finish. When the 'varsity went up the river for half a mile with the freshmen the boat was very ragged, but for the final two hun dred yards the men got together and displayed possible winning form. Coach Wray spent most of his time giving the men instructions as to the catch and the blade work, but did not seem very well satisfied with their work. The freshman eight went very poorly, Vogel at No. 4 seeming to throw the rest of the men out. With Loring at No. 2 In the freshman four-oared the boat went better, as be has rowed there'; before. Kit Perkins, cf the graduate advisory rowing committee, arrived to-day to stay for a week. lie has already begun ' to plan for the graduate eight which Awful Humor Was Eating Away Face and Ears Body Mass of Sores Three Doctors Tried to Help .
