Sixteen Million Dollar Bond
Issue is Part of the
Plan.
<
ONIONTOWN, Pa., Dec. 20.?Two
lew. projects affecting the J. V. Thompon
estate were unfolded here by Arhur
Havemeyer in behalf of the Haul
latlon committee. They are:
1. A tflbrger ot 350,000 acres ot coal
and owned by the Thompson interists
into a combination to exercise
rantrol for selling purposes only.
2. A bond issue of 916,000,000 will be
iffered to all mortgage creditors and
>thers who desire to bold first lien
lghts on property.
The mortgage creditors by tbe terms
if the plan will exchange their holdings
or bonds upon payment ot all deferred
interest claims.
There are 776 owners of coal tracts
ocated in virgin coal fields where
VIr. Thompson's coal holdings extend.
Ur. Thompson owns 160,000 acres of
:oal land and connected Interests own
190,000 acres.
It is the purpose of the liquidation
:ommittee to appeal for a solidification
of local coal Interests so that'a
prospective purchaser may meet with
:ne price. Control ot the selling pool
is to be prorata?each acre of coal
land to exerclso one vote. All options
or prices will be arranged by a board
of trustees or officers to be named
by the organization.
In order to successfully promote
the 316,000,000 bond issue the Thompsen
estate was shorn of everything
that might be ot doubtful value. The
estate then was appraised at 551,000,000.
The bonds are to extend a period
of 10 years and carry 6 per cent, interest.
In addition to the exchange
of bonds for'mortgages 25 per cent,
slock bonuses will be offered. The
remainder 01 tne issue, to tne extent
of the sales deemed necessary, will
be used in promoting the sale of the |
estate.
Copies of the new propositions are j
being printld in New York and will be
>ent to the creditors. The details of
the projects to bo presented in these
topics were drawn up by Norton M.
Sross, general counsel for the Hill syndicate.
and have been submitted to Attorneys
Samuel Untermeyer and A.
Leo Well for approval.

It was the sense ot the directors that
il the rate question bobbed up it might
tako twelve months to arfive at a decision.
The plan is to have the supply
issue decided first, although it was
intimated by some of the board that
perhaps the entire subject may be decided
once for all by the Public Serv
ice Commission, or else bring the matter
into-the Legislature and get relief.
Mr. Dudderar read a copy of the
reslutions passed In Clarksburg. He
said that Clarksbuggers may agrco to
soino slight changes. He said that
Clarksburg would join with Fairmont
and participate in a conference and
that ho would Interest other communities
in the project. He stated that
the Clarksburg Board ot Trade had
spent $8,000 already and that it had
acquired some valuable and accurate
data gleaned from gas company reports,
which he offered for the use of
the local committee in preparing a
case for the Public Service Commission.
O. S. McKinney. speaking again,
though the situation should be settled
at once and this elicited a number of
opinions aB to the best way to proceed.
It was the sense of the meeting that
an attorney be secured to act in con-!
junction with Hon. Fred 0. Blue, of '
Charleston, already selected by the
Governor to be one of two attorneys to :
look out after the state's interests be-:
fore the Public Service Commission.
A Democratic attorney will be selected
so as to remove any suspicion of politics
in the proposition. It was generally
thought tbat it was the best to
swing right in under the Coventor's
lead on the gas problem as he is anxious
for a favorable outcome of the
difficulty. A conference between cities
in this section was suggested for
Fairmont at which the attorney to he

assistance in the matter and he be-J

for he felt that if the Public Service
Commission should side step the issue
the Governor would call an extranber?
