It is dis- heartenitfg to the management, t,ftci having surmounted the physical nnd ilmincia'1 'difficulties surrounding the railroad,.to- : ftnd that the legal complications which they inherited from their'predecessors should assume a tlrea'tenjng. form at this time. The effect on quotations of the, securities, however, seems excessive nnd indiscriminate; The'"bpnds of the New Albany company -ought not to be diminished in'yalue, eyen'if the Bentt'yviJle litigants should Bucceed • to the full extent of ih'e'fr'hopes, and the stockholders would also''flnd : means to protect themselves. But .legal defenses against the unjust claims', have-not been exhausted,by the NCJV...Albany, management." The lawyers of ttie' Mpnon deem the defense of the : "compdny 'to be "impregnable.
