WASHINGTON, May 7. -Charges ofi
maladministration, reckless oxtrat agnnea
and undito expansion, induced by a spirit
.of monopolisation and aggrandizement,
were made today beforo tho Intcrstnia
Commerce commission by Louts D. Bran
dels of Boston against tho officials of
the Now York. New Haven fc Hartford
and tho Boston & Maine railroads.
The charges were made In tho'course o5
oiJ arguments submitted to the com
mission an testimony adduced at tha
commission's Investigation of the opera
tions of tho New England rullroadB ro
contly taken In Boston.
Mr. Brandeis said both had nupprrsnc&
competition at a "fearful cost"
Dividends Kxceed Ihirnlnirs.
"For flvo out of tho last rlx years tht
New Haven has boen paying In dividends;
more than It has earned," said he. 'It
has pursued a policy of Concealing from
the stockholders nnd from the public tho
character of Its methods and policies.
The Boston & Maine has. outstanding
I2l.COO.000 or short term notes which in.
natural course It will havo to meet dur
ing the coming year, and yet Jt Is about
to pass Its dividend, nnd It Is doubtful
whether It can meet Its fixed charges.
Tho Now Haven's affairs are managed
in the namo reckless fashion. It has
nbtes to meet within Hit next eight
mouths amounting to between SiO.OOO.CW
and t.V),000,000. Such management would
be condemned In n wild cat mining
scheme, its management has been char
acterized by recklessness that is np
palling."
Replies to Criticism.
The criticism of Mr. Brandeis wns mot
by statements of Charles F. Choate, jr.,
personal counsol of President Charles B,
Mellen of the Now Haven, who, while ad
mitting that largo prices had been paid
for some of the properties constituting
tho .New Haven aystem.vdeolareU the ac
tlon of the dlreorots Already had been
Justified fully In some Instances, and he
was certain would be Justified in nil by
time. Expensive Improvements, he said,
had been mado by tho roads to meet tho
demands of the public.
. Referring to. Mr- Brnndcls as u "minor
ity of one," Mr. Choate sold that criti
cism of tho New' Haven rapidly waa
waning. In. Nnw Knglund us lie operations
had hecomo better undorBtood and he
drew HtnlleH from Iho commissioners and.
from Mr. Brandeis as well by saying of
him! "He has superb destructive talents,
but hot a 'single constructive Idea ever
hnir emanated-from-hi mto the benefit o
our New England public."
