"There Is one difference between your business and that of . railroad ing.' President E. J. Pearson of the New Haven .railroad told members of the Chamber of Commerce at a luncheon at the Stratfield yesterday. "You are all prosperous," he said, "or at least I trust. you are. Now, un fortunately, the railroad Is skating on thin Ice." . - - President Pearson quoted a remark made to him by Adolphus Buach. a big brewer of St. Louis, "You milk your railroads too much, and don't feed them enough," and then went ob to' say, "I am a believer of the future of the v railroads of this coun try; they are necessary to the pro- ! perity of the United States, and I ! cannot believe they are not going to have a fair show and that the day ! i? coming along in that direction. I have some hopes from - remarkB of Senator Newlands at a hearing in San Francisco. He says the time for punishment of railroads by the pub lic has the means of regulation in its hands and now Is the time to go ahead on a constructive plan. ' I hope to see railroading come up and stand with the banks on a basis of good service, to see -a good condition of property, reasonable dividends such as indicate the financial status of the undertaking, but all that means ade quate rates plus good management. That is what is going to solve this question with public support." .Some figures regarding the condi tion of the New Haven system, show ing the' increased cost of operation were given, some of the . many prob lems which the road .is struggling against, the need of the roads in the prosecution of the war, and then he spoke of the plans to unify . the action .of the roads for aid in th war, and then he spoke of the plans for Bridgeport. In . conclusion he said the road has been clear of em bargoes for the last 30 , days, and hopes conditions from now-on will Improve. CHRISTMAS BOXES GOING TO FRANCE Several boxes addressed for sol diers In France who' -will ntherwisn receive no Christmas remembrances have been mailed in the .parcels post section in Bridgeport in the last few days, one ye3terday by a young woman who desires to be fairy godmother to some lonely member of the expedi tionary force. There are probably many In the forces "over seas" who will appreciate such a remembrance, and such packages will be forwarded in the regular way. These packages will go to commanding officers, and will be apportioned among those who do not receive other packages from home. 1 Tues. Eve.
