Thousands in the Wake of the news three million workers Idle crisis looming unions to resist wage slashing schools of Pennsylvania but which the Delaware Lackawanna amp Western Railroad asks the interstate Commerce commission to permit it to hand Over to its stockholders. Governor Edwards of new Jersey is not interested although he received official notice that the a. L. Amp w. Seeks to get permission to collect three times As heavy tolls from the traffic in new Jersey As heretofore was Legal. Governor Smith of new York is As unconcerned As the other two governors. All of them proved it the other Day by failing to enter protest when the company a application was heard by the commission. Decision by the commission is pending. Withheld surplus from state the Deleware Lackawanna amp Western was chartered by Pennsylvania in 151. Under its charter As later amended it was permitted to pay dividends on its capital actually expended not exceeding 12 per cent in any one year. Any surplus profit must be turned into the state Treasury for the Public school fund. Thereafter the legislature was to reduce the rates charged by the company to a Point where no such surplus would accrue. The capital of the Road is now $45,-000.000, of which $13,000,000 represents Stock issued to cover subsidiary lines purchased from the surplus profits we hich should have been paid to the state. During the charter period the company has regularly paid 12 per cent to its stockholders has bought and paid for $13,000,000 Worth of other lines and has piled up $90,000,000 of surplus which is the Legal property of the school fund hut which the company refused to deliver. Three states Woodd be robbed in its present application it admits that under its charter it cannot increase its capital Stock to replace this surplus. But it contends that under Laws passed since the Pennsylvania Constitution of 1874 was adopted any company accepting that Constitution to govern its charter can increase its capital Stock to the amount of the surplus. It says that if the interstate Commerce commission will authorize a Stock dividend of 200 per cent to the holders of its $45,000,000 of Stock it will accept the Constitution of 1874, and absorb the $90,000,000. In this Way if the commission gives consent the Stock of the Lackawanna will be increased to $135,000,000. In place of $45,000,000, and the Public a quota of $1,000,000 is asked of san Francisco. Additional sums Are sought elsewhere.
