Did any individual, association, or corporation hold control, as trustee, over the respondent at the close of the year? Yes. The Boston Railroad Holding Company, incorporated in Massachusetts by the Statutes of 1909, Chapter 519, acquired and held, and still holds a majority, 52.9 per cent, of the capital stock of the Boston & Maine Railroad. The New York, New Haven & Hartford Railroad Company took and held most of the stock of the Holding Company, and in this way had a controlling interest in the Boston & Maine Railroad. A suit was brought by the United States Government to terminate this control on the ground that it was in violation of the Sherman Anti-Trust Law. A decree in this suit was entered by the United States Court for the Southern District of New York, dated October 17, 1914, directing that the New York, New Haven & Hartford Railroad Company should transfer to certain trustees all its stock in the Holding Company, so that the trustees should control the majority of the capital stock of the Boston & Maine Railroad and, ultimately should sell it conformably with the public interest for the benefit of the New York, New Haven & Hartford Railroad Company in such a way as to end the alleged monopoly. Soon afterwards a transfer of this stock in the Boston Railroad Holding Company was made to these trustees in accordance with the decree, and they now hold it under the decree.

VOTING POWERS AND ELECTIONS.

The par value of the common and preferred stock is $100, each share of which is entitled to one vote. Voting rights are proportional to holdings and are not attached to any security other than stock and no class or issue of securities has any special privilege in the election of directors, trustees or managers, or in the determination of corporate action by any method.

The stock books were closed December 24, 1918, for annual meeting.

The total voting power of all security holders on December 24, 1918, was 426,549 votes. The total number of stockholders was 7,155.

The following is a list of twenty stockholders who on December 24, 1918, had the highest voting powers in the respondent:
