EXPERT SAYS ROCK
L JliAND STOCK IAS
TIYE TIMES WATERED
Financial Manipulators Got
$300,000,000 for Issue
Worth $90,000,000 U. S.
WASHINGTON', Oct. 16.-The Interstate
Commerce Commission today threw Its
tcarchllght oit the Chicago, Rock Island
kind Pacific rtallroad system, to get at
the truth of charges that the stockholders
have boon left "holding the bag" while
i small coterie of financiers Incurred
obligations of more than 1200,000,000.
vlteve'atlons are expected which will
parallel, or surpass, those In the famous
New Haven Inquiry.
Chief Counsel Joseph W. Folk, who Is
prosecuting the Inquiry for the Commis
sion, Is directing his fire first at alleged
manipulations through holding companies,
by which stock, bought for $00,000,000 and
representing a controllng Interest In the
Hock Island, was watered, It Is alleged,
nnd sold for $500,000,000, to the profit.
It Is charged, of $210,000,000 to the manipu
lators. HOW STOCK WAS WASTED,
F. A. Shawrood, an accountant In tho
mploy of the Commission, was the first
"witness to take the stand. Commissioner
Clements, who Is presiding over the In
vestigation, emphasized to Governor Folk,
chief counsel, tho desirability of expe
diting tho hearing for the benefit of Wit
JICSSPS. One of the first disclosures brought out
was how the Rock Island stock had been
Increased to five times Its original cap
italisation, shortly after tho Reld-Moore
syndicate obtained control of the road.
Eharwood told of the formation of the
Iowa and Now Jersey holding companies,
the directors of which were employes of
the Rock Island Railroad. Tho total
stocks and bonds issued by the two hold
ing companies were $350,000,000. These had
no earning power of tholr own, examina
tion disclosed, but wero dependent en
tirely for earnings on the dividends on
$71,000,000, the stock of tho Rock Island
"Then tho stock of the Rock Island was
watered five times over7" asked Folk.
"Ves," replied Sharwood.
EXPENSES PUT AS OPERATING.
Sharwood said that for $71,000,000 par
Yalue of the old railroad company stosk
tho holders received $71,000,000 bonds In
the Iowa company and 70 per cent, of $71,
000,000 of preferred stock of tho New Jer
sey company, and $71,000,000 common stock
of the New Jersey company. This made
n total exchango of $191,700,000 of securi
ties of the holding companies In return
ifor $71,000,000 of the old compiny's stock.
LOPS OF $35,000,000 IN FRISCO.
The Rock Island system sustained an
outright loss of $3r,000,000 by Its purchase
and subsequent sale of the St. Louis and
&an Francisco, better known as the
Trisco system, according to Examiner
fiharwood's testimony. The Rock Island
bought tho Frisco stock at 120 and sold It
nt ui "4.
Six million dollars was lost outright by
the Rock Island similarly In the pur
chase nnd sale of tho Chicago and Alton
Examiner Sharwood's testimony showed
that the $350,000,000 capital stock of the
various holding companies created by the
Rock Island system was four-fifths water.
Tho only actual value upon which this
stock had to depend for backing was tho
171,000,000 capital of tho Rock Island Rail
road. One of tho most entertaining deals In
the history of the Rock Island system, ac
cording to Chief Counsel Folk, who
brought out the story by examination of
tho witness, was that by which a $7,500,000
debt of tho Rock Island Railroad, the
actual company, was funded by the Rock
Island Railway, the holding concern.

Prospects for active exportation .of
grain through this port assumed a
brighter tone today with the report that
representatives of foreign .countries had
obtained nearly 2,000,000 bushels of wheat,
to be shipped from Philadelphia, New
York nnd Baltimore. There has been
a lull In the exportation of wheat nere
during the last few weeks. Regular line
bonis took out as much as they could
carry, but very few full cargo vessels
Great Britain, France nnd Scandinavia
have been tho heaviest purchasers of
grain since the war begun, but the orders
were not up to the standard that ex
porters had expected. This la explained
that all of these countries had been sup
plied for Immediate use, but tho tiro-
longntlon of hostilities will mean that
none of tho countries will have any future
supply. To meet this situation heavy
buying Is likely to continue for some
At prcscntXhere Is a shortago of tho
usual world's surplus available wheat
BUpply of about 330,000,000 bushels. The
abundant crop of this country will make
up about 113,000,600 bushels of this de
ficiency. Next year'B shortage, on ac
count of the war. will be enormous, and
heavy buying from this country will
The annual wheat consumption of
n?!jLn.ccort,lnB to official figures, is
300.000.000 bushels. Its crop this year Is
estimated nt 286,000.000 bushels. Tho Im
port requirements for tho year are placed
at 44,000,000 bushels, but they aro likely
to run double that amount
A similar condition exists In tho other
countries, with tho exception of Great
Biltaln, which has provided for Itlf
abundantly for Immediate, use. Millions
of bushels hnvo been and are being Im
ported. This supply has been augmented
by tho diversion of grain-laden vessels to
British ports with or without the consent
Scandinavian buyers are preplexed at
the action of Great Britain In holdlmr tin
vessels carrying grain destined to Nor
way. Sweden or Denmark. The seizure
of these vessels has led to difficulties In

Vice Chancellor Backes Reverses Ap
peal Taken by Mrs. Senger.
TRENTON, Oct 16.-A family quarrel
of three years' standing, In'MvlnK the
accounting of an estate of JIOO.'OOO, In
which Mrs. Charles Senger, of Plalnfleld,
brought suit against her brothers, Garrett
and Harry Drier, executors under tho will
of their father, the late Samuel Drier,
probably had Its ending hero today, so
far as the courts are concerned.
Vlco Chancellor Backes handed down a
decision reversing the appeal taken by
Mrs. Songer from the action of tho
Orphans' Court of Union County, in dls
missing the exceptions she took to the
handling of the estate by her brothers.
The exceptions wero mainly to expendi
tures made by tho executors for repairs
to the property bequeathed by her fath
er's will. The Vice Chancellor decided
that It Is fair to presume that the ex
ecutors, being bencHciaries, would seek
to protect their own Inheritance.
Disintegration of what Is virtually the
last of tho big railroad combinations of
the country tho New York, New Haven
and Hnrtford will begin officially today
In New York nt a final conference be

partment of Justice. A date for filing
the decree of dissolution In the United
Slates court will bo determined. It Is
likely that the decree will be recorded
later today, or by noon tomorrow, nt.nny
At a meeting yesterday of directors of
tho road tho necessary steps were taken
authorizing executives of the company
to divest the corporation of control of
the Boston and Maine nnd Its 16 lenscd
linen, of control of the Eastern Steam
ship Corporation, of control of the Bcrk-
shlie trolleys nnd of ownership of the
Connecticut nnd Rhode Islnnd trolleys.
Two niore directors resigned at yes
terdays meting of the board. They were
William Skinner nnd Morton F. Plnnt.
No effort will be rmiriq to nnmo their suc
cessors when ntockholders of the New
Haven hold their annual meeting Oc
tober 23. It Is expected also that Samuel
Rea, head ot the Pennsylvania Railroad,
will at this meeting dccllno a re-election
to tho dltcctornte.
An official estimate of tho valuo of the
properties to bo given up by the Now
Huvon under tho ponding decree puts It
at upward of $133,000,000.
Two of the demands of tho Govern
ment have already been met by tho New
Haven. It has released Its Joint control
with the New York Central of the Boston
nnd Albany. It has also sold Its ma
jority holdings of tho stock of the Mer
chants and Miners' Transportation Grm
pnny, a loss of $3,531,500 being entailed
Since the Government has receded from
Its demand that the "New England Rail
road Company as It originally existed
when taken over by the Now Haven shall
become an independent system and be
operated as such," and that the New
Haven's Interest In tho Rutland Railroad
shall be given up, there Is but one other
detail of tho unscrambling to be ar
ranged. This Is the fate of the Sound
steamship linos, upon which tho Inter
state Commerce Commission Is to pass
under tho provisions of tho Panama
Canal act. Tho New Haven has formally
petitioned for permission to retain them,
and has tho backing of literally hundreds
of commercial organizations In Southern
Four hundred thousand shares of the
Connecticut company, which owns all
but 110 miles of the trolleys In that
State, belong to tho New Haven. These
shares are to be trusteed.
Of tho stock of the Rhode Island com
pany, which owns all but 42 miles of
tho trolleys In that State, tho New Haven
owns 06.S53 shares. This stock Is also
to be trusteed.
Tho other trolley holdings that are
to be disposed of Include 5000 shares
nnd JG78.000 of the bonds of the New
York and Stamford Railway Comnanv.
the New Haven's rights to the capital
stock of tho Shore Line Electric Rail
road and $13,703,000 of tho gold notes of
the New England Investment and Se
curity Company. This last is a volun
tary association, owning the stock of the
Massachusetts trolleys. Tho New Haven,
however, guarantees Its Interest.

ATLANTIC CITY, Oct. 16. Serious
fault mis found at the closing session
of tho American Electric Railway Engi
neers' Association, today, with tho pre
vailing American practice of laying rails
of street railway lines on solid beds of
concrete, causing needless noise and
great wear and tear upon tracltage.
A committee reported that tho ten
dency" abroad was toward stronger and
solid concrete construction wlthou tics,
while exportB reported also that British
engineers used wedges of wood between
the mils and the concrete bed, thereby
eliminating much noise nnd materially
reducing the deterioration that results
from anvil face construction.
A new system of welding, adapted from
the English method. Is also expected to
reduce the objectionable construction Ri
gidity now common to American lines.
Another committee reported that the
design of electric locomotives had not
yet reached a stage where It would fce
possible or ndvlsnble to recommend any
definite lines of practice. Several new
types of locomotives are In course of
development and may change the whole
outlook In the near future.
There was much Interest In a report
