Declares Roads Not Given
Back to Owners in Bad
Condition
ENGINES BETTER
Says That Excellent Ser
vice Was Given Under
Government Control
[By Associated Press]
WASHINGTON, Jan. 24.?Asser
tions that the railroads were turned
back to their owners after the
period of government control In a
"broken down" condition were ro
filled today by Walker D. Hlnes,
In a statement before the Interstate
Commerce commission In which
the former director general of rail
roads said be believed the govern
ment had "substantially over-main
tained the equipment" of tho roads.
Mr. Hlnes told the commission as
a witness In Its general railroad
inquiry that reports at the end of
federal control showed locomotives
to bo In "distinctly better" condi
tion than at the beginning and the
condition of freight cars to "com
pare favorably" with that time. It
must be remembered, he added,
that both generally were In "ex
ceedlngly poor" condition at tho bo
ginnlhg of federal operation.
Although there had been some
shortage of maintenance In rails,
croBS ties and ballast on some
roads. Mr. Hlnes said, this had been
["greatly exaggerated" 1n the gen
jeral discussion. There could be no
| better proof of the condition of the
! railroads when turned back, the
former director genera] said, than
,the unprecedented -volume of busi
ness which they began to handle
?within four months of.that time.
Stating that, critics /of the rail
road administration among therail
executives. appeared. to take as a
Cited the testimony of President
Rea, of- the Pennsylvania lines In
1017 in the advance rate case be
fore the Interstate Commerce com
mission. Mr. Rea declared that it
had been impossible to maintain
passenger car oquipment, that the
continuous service of freight cars
had left great numbers In need of
repairs, and loeomtlve repairs also
had suffered from Inefficient and
Insufficient labor.
Although some "who criticised the
administration's maintenance pol
icy seemed to take the position i
that It Bhould liate placed no Iimi-j
tatlon on maintenance expendi
tures, Mr. Hines said, the govern
ment had adopted the unprefeetly
proper limitation that such amounts
should "correspond reasonably.with
the- government contract obliga
Hons. In defense of this policy, the
former director general recalled
that every railroad strictly limits
its officers In maintaining expen
ditures. it was better In doubfull
cases for the government to fall
somewhat short of contract obliga
tes in maintenance allowanco
than to exceed it, he said, because'
the contract expressly protected
the company In the former case
whereas the government's claim for
excess was pot so claarly establish

GREAT MIXUP
IN JHE COURT
Indictment Causes Much
Tremble; Woman Adds
to Tangle
The trial of the state vorsus '
David Logcnzoff, charged with a
felony came to a sudden halt In
Criminal Court today when It be-1
came known that the Indictment i
upon which the accused was being'
tried was faulty. It acuscd Legcn- ,
zoff w-:th feloniously cutting, Louis
Doktoroff, when it was his Brother
Luca Doktoroff, that, had been as
saulted.
When the third witness in the
cast had been placed on the stand j
it developed that tho brothers;
namoj had beon mixed and that
the defendant was charged wlthi
feloniously cutting a man he had'
never touched. The trial was halt- I
cd, tho Jury that was hearing the'
evidence dismissed and Lcgenznff
remanded io Jail to await action
of tho gva ji Jury when It meets
aga'n Febraary 1.
Folowlng the fight at Downs In
which his brother Luca. had beon
seriously wounded, Louis Doktor
off appeared before Magistrate'De-1
vte#e and swore out the .warrant'
ijqktprofr and his .'brother 'Luca1
appeared Before the grand Jury
and gave the' necessary informa
tion for the indictment but failed
to disclose the fact that li's name
was Luca and not Louis.
The trial was further interrup
! a sllort ^me before the sensa
j tionai' finish when tho court was
stopped by a commotion in the cori
ridor outside the court room, a
woman's screams was heard fol
lowed toy a lot of noise and scuffl
ing in the corridor. Upon investi
gation It was learned that Sher'ff
J. D. dharlton. had arrestdJ Mrs.
David Legenzon, wife of the de
fendant .'n tho case for having k.
quart of moonshine whiBky in her
possession in the court house.
Mrs. Legenzoff created quite a
disturbance whan arrested but was
finally landed in the county jail on
a charge of violating the state pro.
bibit'on laws. After the sudden
breaking up of the trial in the
court room her husband was also
locked up in the jail to keep her
company until he can furnish bond
for his appearance before the
February grand Jury.
?? Sheriff Charltoi* was led to |
make the arrest of the woman
after he had arrested a drunken
man in the corridor of tho court
house, who had been making un
n6ceesary noise and upon Investi
gating where he got his wh'sky it
was learned - \ that the Legzenoff
woman was "treating sonte of the
people in the vicinity of the court
room.' When arrested she* was in
the ladles rest room.
