The Enlarged Institution to Control the _ Prudential—■ What Vice President  ' Hyde of the Equitable "Says.  Si>ecial to The. New York .Times.    ^  NEWARK, N. J, Oct. 20.-John Öen, President of the Prudential Insurance company, and rjzal И, McCtrter, Pro«-  dent of the Fidelity Trust Company, Tssiiea a joint statement this afternoon explammg in detail the reason for the Jjrge mcrea.^^ of Uie. capital stock of the Fidelity _  I'ompany, the-preliminary arrangements lor  Avhich were made at a meeting о Ftoekholders of that company to-day. -The plan which follows in detail provides that the' Fidelity Trust Company shall control the Prudential Insurance Company, but at the same time the latter’s interests ore to be dominant faetors in the trust com-]>any.~ The joint statement -of the two  I’residents follows:  As has been known for several days, the capital of. the Fidelity Trust Com^ny is about to be increased from .$1.йОО.О<Ю to S.f,000,00»), the new stock being sold at S750 per share. This will result the Fidelity Trust a capital of .?3,00ü,  :i surplus of $i:i.0»X),00(>. and a considerable amount Of undivided profits,    .  “Sufficient of this stock will be taken by the Pnalential Insurance Company to i^lve it. together with its present very large holding of Fidelity stock, the absolute control of that company. A very large ' portion of the balance of said stock is to be taken by the Equitable Life As.surance i^ocicty of New York, which wdll give to that company a very substantial ínteres in the Fidelity Company, and therefore justify it in materially increasing its business with the Fidelity.  “ The bulk of the new money thus to be leeeived by the Fidelity Trust Company is to be used by it in the acquisition of a controlling interest in the entire capital stock of the Prudential Insurance Company.  “ The officer.s of the Prudential have for a long time felt, in view of the extraordinary growth of that "company, and of its future anticipated grow^th, that the 1 has come when, in justice to its 4,000,000 policy holders, its control and future management should be safeguarded for all time HI such a manner that neither the death of its officers nor any other agency that hu-  - man ingenuity can foresee can endanger the ~ rights of its policy holders. When the.company w^as smaller and the stock was closely held the need of such action was not so  apparent. Uilless something of this nature  луаз done, the stock of the company in tne л'сагз to come would necessarily become more scatteredj, and the control of the company more precarious.  “To accomplish this desirable result a contract has been entered into between the Fidelity Trust Company and a majority or stockholders in interest of the Prudential,  - in which the latter take Prudential stock, or as much thereof as may be necessary, to tVfp Fidelity Trust -Company on or betöre àïasr Д пей i ЯЮО for every »IW of par  ' u' !s pfoviaed In the contract, lhat the Fidelity Trust Company shall or  îer the sam^privilege to every stocKholder  tbp T^riidentiHl i’d tliât us the P ?-Upan^/"fw ow’ns  ïhârt'holfer^f the®Prudential avail Wmrelt .f bts privilege to become a party to the  ""h^r °iiiow ^hôld?^wouwÏÏVe\^^^ Fidefity tí;:,ip.4‘ny““tLSed majority ot the Pru-  “^Tho?e° of' the Prudential stockholders «•bo rin not sign this contract will sell a  \vhfte bt.

The twro points upon w’hich the promoters of the plan rely are: Flrst-That the union, if complete and thorough, -is a labor trust,  ?bbond-That m Lngland. w^^  MTT.KESBARRE, Penn..    2»».-Tho  anxiously awaith'd conveuti-ai ut ih«' U.j.vM striking miners xn< t to-day, bnt iTJ reach a vote on tlu- proiMis.-d ;.lan "t    1-  tlement.
