NEW YORK, Oct. 26. Henry K.

rectors of the New York, New Haven
& Hartford railroad, now on trial

law, have resigned from the New
Thte resignations became known

concluding its second week, had ad
journed. They will be formally
presented to the New Haven stock
holders at their annual meeting to
be held In New Haven tomorrow It
While no formal statement as to the
reason for their retirement was obtain'
able tonight, it was said on behalf of
the New Haven company that their
action undoubtedly was due to a desire
not to embarrass the present New Haven
management on account of their status
it as alleged violators of the law being a
) 4 matter still to be determined by a Jury.

the board together May 31. 1907. They

Specter of Freight Rate Decision.
The specter of the oft-quoted Missouri
frtcrht fit. Hdnlalnn k, . V. I V. L. T I .1
States supreme court In 1S97. first applied
the Sherman anti-trust laws to railroads
arose In the trial of the eleven New York,
New Haven & Hartford railroad directors
today, to plague the minds of the Jury.
The question put before the mto decide
was whether the decision absolved the
director of the New Haven from knowing
that they were committing illegal acts
prior to that date and therefore could not
have Intended the conspiracy with which
they are charged, that of monopolizing
the traffic ot 'New England; or whether,
knowing they had been commuting Illegal
acta-they th.tnoUnued to.-ooounit In-
'"Wtol the decision.
The question came up when the govern
ment proposed to Introduce minutes of
the New Haven board dated May 1, 1897,
In which It was stated that the director
"had been called together to consider
what policy should be pursued by this
company and what advice should be given
the New York St New England Railroad
company in regard to freight matters In
view of the recent deolslon of the su
preme court of the United States In the
Trans-Missouri Freight association case."
No action was taken by the director
tn regard to the questions the minutes
etated, and after they were In the rec
ord, Attorney Swacker for the govern
ment began the Introduction of testimony
Intended to show that no action having
been taken the alleged conspiracy further
to monopolize the transportation traffic
of New England was continued.

for its supply of men and material to the
satisfaction of the naval and military ex

that there were moments when it was
