of the Atchison siys of rate reductions:
"It Is hoped and believed that the pub
lic will soon realise that Its recent attitude
toward railroad companies In general hns
not been Just 10 their stockholders and
bondholders, and also that unless the con
fidence of Investors in the security and sta
bility of railway Investments Is restored It
will be impossible to obt.tln the additional
railway facilities which are necessary to
the development of the. country."
President Ripley adds that the Atchison"
directors have suspended various extensive
projects which were contemplated and will
limit the company's capital expenditures to
the completion of Improvements to which
the company Is already committed.
President George XV. Stevens of tha Ches
apeake & Ohio tuvs: ''it would seem to be
the Intention of the communities and people
served by Its (the railroads) lines that the
revenues should not be lessened o'r the
credit Injured by further reducing rate
that are now inadequate to meet the phys

the return which shareholders may right
fully and reasonably expect."
President Frederick A. Delano of the Wa
bash, speaking of enactment of 2-cent pas
senger lawa by Indiana, Illinois, Missouri
and Iowa, ays:
"While these laws have not been effective

brought out In the hearing of the federal
suit against the oil combine today, when
F. T. Cuthbert, president ot the Manhat
tan company, was called as a witness.
Mr. Cuthbert la the son of the late John

had much to do with the making of the
contract whereby the Chicago and In
dianapolis Gas companies controlled by
E. C. Benedict and Anthony N. Brady,
obtained a constant oil supply from the
Standard as part consideration for the
sale of the Manhattan company.
Mr. Cuthbert said his father previous
to his conectlon with the Manhattan, was
a director of the Tido Water Pipe Line
company. The witness said he became
president of the Manhattan In 1902. Previous
to that he was an auditor of the company.
MrJ Cuthbert described at length the physi
cal aspects of the Manhattan. Mr. Cuth
bert said the Manhattan company was only
dolng a pipe line bunlness at present. In
1R01 the Manhattan sold Its refinery to the
Solar Refining company, its oil prodm-ts to
the Ohio Oil company, Us oil products to
to the Union Tank line. All three com
panies, me witness sain, no understood
wore controlled by . the Standard OH com
pany. The pipe system of the Manhattan
company was connected with the pipe lines
of the Brooklyn Pipe Line company in
Ohio and with the Indiana Pipe Line com
pany In Indiana. Mr. Cuthbert testified
that the capital stock of the Manhattan,
after Its purchase, was gradually reduced
from $2,000,000 to $150,0(10.
"Who owns tho Manhattan company?"
"The General Industrial Development
Syndicate of London owns 1,4 shares and
the qualifying directors own the other five
shares." replied Mr. Cuthbert.
"Is that an English company?"
"Yes, the managing director is Herbert
W. Johnson of London, and J. W. R.
Francis of London, is secretary," said Mr.
Cuthbert, who added that he voted all
the stock of the Manhattan company by
power of attorney.
Mr. Cuthbert said the books of the Man
hattan were kept In Lima, O. The London
company owned the Indiana Pipe Line and
Refining company of Indiana, he said.
