Rondout, H. Y. 'feaya a Stockholder Would Be Harmed by. CojTfMirat» Required to Safeguard Investment of Capital — M«re Money Sunk In Mortgage» and Real Estate. Washington, Dec. 31, — Chairman •Knapp of4he Interstate commerce commission, In his paper entitled "Capi-tolliaUon and Publicity," read before the Association for Advancement of Science, discussed the proposition thit .all corpomions UQ¿ar congreélional •oontrol be required to make full dls-'Closure of their g<^nesU and opera/tlons, 80 that It may be seen how the amount of money originally paid In, or the value of the assets at any time owned, compares with the par yalue of all bonds and stocks Issued. Mr. Knapp said he ventured to doubt the aoundni?s3 of the argdinent that publicity would prevent stock water-Ing, He held it unpr<;ved that tho cxce.s-eive Jsaue of corporate .securities was ! a source of auch danpor as to excite ! public alarm, and «aid ho was yet to 1 bx? convinccd that enforced pxiblicity I would not be a harmful exorcise of ■ public authority. He faid In part: I "I niaintalu that the atockholder, .a^. 6wh> Is- not"be»»ñíed- "br córpórate ; publicity and would be harmed rather I than "helped by its enforcement. It I is one-tiring for the Btoekhordt^lr'fd "híiVé" knowledge of the concern whose shares ^he hold»; it is quite another thing to jiurnlBh the public the saxae Information. I fail to gee fhat publicity can be desirable or useful to the atock-: holder.' j "The justification for this proposa', j therefore, must be found, if found at i all. In the theory that the state is ; charged with the duty of safeguarding I the invr.stment of capital in conK)ratc ' securitic.i. To my mind this Is a most j serious proposition, and I think we should long hesitate before embarking upon such a paternal venture, j "Lf-aving out tho speculator, and .talcing into account only those seelt-iiig honetit investment, 10 thnes more I money, to say the least, has been j Bunk in farm mortgages, suburban lots, patent ri^ihts, buying and selling grain, cotton and other commodities where no corporate shares were dealt ■ In or even existed, than was ever lost ' 1 on account of the fictitkus or excessive j Issue of corix>rate st'curities. I "I cannot but regard corporate pub-I Hclty of the kind and to the extent advocated by many as a certain and serious hindrance to effective compe-UUon." In .his paper on the necessity of organization among employers Mr. David M Parry declared that organ-• Ired capital should mean a combination ¡of tie Interests of men twho share prnctlcally the same views as to the administration of their business. He continued. j "WTien capital Is thoroughly orgar-; Ized then will come the almost com-I plete disappearance of the strlkj and the boycott, for they are but systematic maa'ffcatatioms of social disease growing out of Imperfect organization. . "Wren f vi-'anlzed employers and employes can Bit down together then mav bt taken up trade disputes and other matters alfecting their mutua! interests and these may be disposed of in an liitelligont, orderly and scientific manner.

Rlcketts was killed in the collision at Wa^lltftad on the evening of Friday, December 26th. 1902. That said collision wa^ caused by wrong orders being given No. 6 at Wanstead. "Responsibility for the Issuance ot wrong orders we are not agreed upon as between Operator Carson and Dispatcher Kerr. "That after No. 5 had left Watford by thf isstfance of wrong orders we consider that the accident could have been uvertod by th« operator at Wyoming or Kings Court Junction had the railway company had more experienced operators at these points (one bo ing but a boy of 16), at each of which places tho dispatcher had ample time to do it and endeavored to get the opposing trains stopped,".

Troyer, who Is a boy of 16 years, stated that he waa on duty for the first time on the night of the accident and that his total previous experi ence as an operator was for two nighta at Strathroy, where he received only a total of four messages. He gave as a reason for not ht?arlng Dispatcher Kerr calling him for seven or eight minutes, that he waa studying the time table and did not recognize tho ofilce call w^Ich ho had heard only once before.
