port could bo had from officials of the

tained nt Broad Streot Station was to the
effect that the report was correct. 3fr.
Rea is out of tho city at present.
Tho reason given for Jlr. Ilea's reported
refusal of re-election Is In line with tho
policy of tho railroad In reducing the
number of directors, which wero recently
cut down from 16 members to 17. Di
rectors In the New Haven board who are
regarded as representing Pennsylvania In
terests are of the opinion. It is understood,
that tho railroad does not require more
directors than tho Pennsylvania Rail
road. Tim Pennsylvania Railroad has 13
directors, elected by the stockholders, nnd
four additional members of the board,
vice presidents, are olectfd by the board,
bringing tho total number of directors of
tho company to 17.
No other reason was advanced for Mr.
Rca's nttltude. Mr. Rea became a di
rector of the New Haven on December
20, 1512. when ho succeeded James Mc-
C'rea, having taken over the latter's duties
as prcbldent of the Pennsylvania Railroad
on December I, 1913.

But Penrose, who typlflrs bipartisan,
commercialized politics In Pennsylvania,
as mu.h as Murphy in New York or Sul

for the rehabilitation of tho Republican
