DEFENDANTS IN
RAILROAD TRIAL
"ABSURDLY RICH"
H. L. Batts Says Public
Could Take Their Money
If It .Wanted.
New Tork, Jan. 6. Beginning the
final summing up for the government
at the trial of the 11 former directors
of the New Tork, New Haven & Hart
ford railroad, H. L.' Batts, chief fed
eral counsel, took vehement exception
today to remarks made by the defense
that he had been chosen to prosecute
the case because he had been, In
Texas, a law partner of Attorney
General Gregory.
"Air. Gregory," he said,, "knew I had
experience in Sherman law cases. And
it is not true, as has been said by Mr.
Nicholl,' that this is the , most . impor
tant case I've had."
Mr. Batts referred to the defendants
os "absurdly rich" men and declared
that their wealth, influence and high
standing in the community did not
palliate the violation of the law.
"It is an important thing, gentle
men," said he, "for you to say wheth
er an act which Congress has passed
for jthe benefit " and protection of
you and your children should be en
forced." The attorney referred to the second
or criminal section of the Sherman
law under which the indictment was
brought, as one which should be en
forced "in order that trust magnates
of the future may know that they will
be punished - for disregarding it and
not to have merely the inconvenience
of a dissolution."
