re American Mail Line O/Sfe.
As per writer*s conversation this morning re the above,
I am attaching herewith letter from the United States Maritime
Commision requesting particulars of our outstanding against the
American Mail Line as at Aug* 31st/38 from which you will note they
show a balance due us at that date of |973CU49#
Prom the attached statement which I have prepared you will
note that on Aag. 31st/38 out  total outstanding against the American
Mail Line was |l2762o88 against which we have since applied credits
f\of 13,347*74 thereby reducing our total outstanding against this
Company to 19,413,14 as at Oct, 3lst. which balance agrees with my
letter to Mr. H, S» Howard of Hov, 3rd, carbon copy to you.
Would also advise that on going through my special debit
book this morning I find the following amounts still open and available for credit of the American Mail Line:

re American Mall Line O/Sfe*
As per writer's conversation this morning re the above,

show a balance due us at that date of $9730.49*
From the attached statement which I have prepared you will
note that on Aug.  31st/38 our total outstanding against the American
"Mail Line was $12762.88 against which we have since applied credits
of $3,347#?4 thereby reduoing our total outstanding against this
Company to  $9,413.14 as at Oct.  31st. whioh balance agrees with my
letter to Mr. H.  S. Howard of lov.  3rd,  carbon copy to you.
Would also advise that on going through my speoial debit

GENTLEMEN:
This afternoon I attended meeting of creditors which had been
called for purpose of receiving proposal of the American Mail Line.    Mr.
Croson staged that the following program has been approved by the Board of
Directors of that Company:
1. All Items of 1100.00 or under to be paid in full at once.  There
are 297 of such creditors with claims aggregating 111,200.00
2. All affialiated company accounts to be subordinated until working
debts of 1525,979.48 are paid in full.    The ,ffiliated company accounts
amount to #438,044.57,  of which $192,946.80 is secured by mortgage
upon vessels.
3. 25^ to be paid oa or before January 31st,  1939.
15^ to be paid on or before August  15th,  1939.
10=2 to be paid on or before December 15th, 1939.
50^ to be paid on or before August or September 1940.
The above payments are minimum amounts, and if and when accounts
against the U.S.Government or current accounts are collected such
funds shall be turned over to the creditora«    It is contemplated that
this money will be raised from collection of accounts and by liquidation, or if operations are resumed then to be paid out  of operating
revenue.    No money is to be taken out of such collections except for
the above, payments and for preservation of the assets.    Payments are
to be distributed as the creditors Committee may agree.    The above
arrangement will be covered by written agreement between the company, %   its affilated companies, and the Creditors Committee or
Association of Credit Men.
The above  sum of $525,000.00 includes claims of California
creditors.    Mr. Croson showed us communications from California
creditors representing approximately 1100,000.00,  stating they
9ere agreeable to the arrangement.
When asked for a further report on the probability of collecting
claims against the U.S.Government which total something like f350,000.00
Mr.  croson stated that $119,000.00 of this amount consisting in subsidies
had been accepted in principle and would doubtless be paid within the next
60 days.   The retroactive subsidy of about $95,000.00 was, he felt, a good
claim and would probably be granted.    The claims against tbe Government for
commandeering of the ships during evacuation of American s from China, tot*
aling $81,773.00, is one which is very closely scrutinized by the Government
as they are checking all individual subsequent  sailings to determine the
actual loss sustained b* the company,    as has been stated in previous letters
a large portion of this sum will require the passage of an Act of Congress.
After Mr. Cvoson left the meeting the Committee voted to accept the
proposal except that they demanded 10^ by December 1, 1938 and %£% by January
31,  1939.    The motion was made that this money be prorated regardless of lien
or trust fund claims.    I voted in favor of the acceptance of the proposal as
amended, but voted against the waiver of trust fund claims pending advise
from the other rail carriers.    The other members of the committee expressed
themselves v&ry forcibly on the question of preference.    Three-fifths of the
working Indebtedness consists of lien claims.    These claimants are willing
to participate on a pro-rata basis, and since their claims in so far as the
ships are concerned are superior to ours % toy do not see why we should be
given any preference.
I am well satisfied that if we try to block pro-rata payments we may
plunge the whole affair into litigation. The agreement will provide that no
creditor by accepting any of the pro-rata payments will by that acceptance
waive any claim of priority he ml^ht otherwise have If there is a default
and the matter is thrown into the bankruptcy court.    I discussed with the
other creditors the reasonableness of the time allowed for liquidation, and
they all stated that two years was not at all unreasonable if the Mall Line
should be forced to se&l its faeet and expect to get a fair price for It.
As I have stated before,  I think there is little douht that our
trust fund claims would be inferior to the lion claims in bankpruptcy, and
our rights as to other assess are not on too firm a basis in view of the
faet that the trust funds have been depleted since the oreation of the
trusts.    I therefore recom end that the railroads take the same action as
the lien claimants and agree to a pro-rata distribution of the funds as they
come in.    I am making this  recommendation to my principals and will appreciate it if you will at vise me at your earliest convenience as to the atti
tud, of your companies.
Yours tittly,
Thos. H. Maguire,
THM-W Assistant General Attorney.

agreeable to this basis, and 1 attach, for your tnforaation, copy of my
letter of data to Mr© Maguire confiniing this understanding. I also
attach copy of letter from the Union Pacific Attorneys agreeing to this
basis*
Yesterday, while I m In Seattle, I discussed this
matter with Mr. Maguire, particularly irith reference to ay attending the
next naeting of the creditors, Mr, Maguire stated that he had no
particular objection to my h&lng present at this meeting mud that na one
could take exception to »y bein^ present except that, it might lead to
other creditore wanting to ha represauted in th© sane mmmT and this
might eventually result im the meetings becoming unnialdy* I had previously
discussed the matter with Mr, Greaves, our Assistant solicitor at Tancouver,
and attach for your information copy of his letter to me of October BOth.
I again diaeusssed the matter this morning with Mr. Greaves on my  return
frea Seattle and he does not think that anything could be gained by ay
attending the meeting.
You will have noticed from correspondence 1 have sent you
from Mr© Maguire, that the former attorneys of the %ieriean Sail Lisa,
Messrs. Boglet Sogle & Sates, have withdra-m. Apparently the reason for
their withdrawal la that they are alao creditors of the American Hill
Lime and we understand fro® «r, Cassius (kites of this legal fl», that he
intends to attend the next meeting of the creditors which haa been called
for Z  p.m,, Tuesday, October 20th, on behalf of his firm. B&gle, Bogle
and Gates, a® you know, &m  also Canadian Pacific attomeyi in Seattle •
Hesarse Bayley ft Croson, who have recently beam employed
aa counsel for the -amorloan Mail Line im place of Bogle, logle ft Gates,
are attorneys for the Canadian National In Seattle, and I understand that
the Canadian national Seattle representative confer® with the* in connection
with their outstanding account with the toerican toil Line* m.B'm
L, B. mmtm,  Esq, October 21, 1§3S,
&, during the course of my conversation with
Mis, infomed na that a mating of the creditors had been called for
i p,a., Tuesday, October ESth, in the Office of the Seattle Credit lenfe
Association, at liiieh time he understood that Messrs. Sayley ft Croson,
Attorneys for the American Mail Line, would present schedule of payments
for approval of the creditors at the meeting in question. We also received
this informtion from ■*, Cassius Oates, of Messrs. Bogle, Bogle ft Gates*
Z told Mr. Bayley that I presumed that he was not going to apt® to amy
schedule or ennmit himself in any nay without first obtaining the approval
of the interested rail carriers. Mr, Maguire confirmed that this bus
his idea* He also stated that he did not consider that the theory of
advanced charges being considered as a trust fund and ooiiJMptwn*ly «atitled
to preferred status, a very sound one, unless such funds had been ear-marked
or deposited and maintained in a special account for this purpose, siiieh
he did not think had been done, and, in fact, he did Say that his investigation developed that at one tine they only had a very small amount on
their books shown as advanced charges. Consequently, he doubted very much
whether the carriers could maintain their position as being preferred
creditors on this account, He is taking the position, however, that these
amounts due the transportation companies should really be considered as on
a preferred status.
Unfortunately, 1 wderstand from Mr. Maguira that there
are liens attached to the vessela at present tied up amounting to some
t3O6,®OQ©O0, these liens having been placed sons considerable time age,
and, in fact, prior to the mortgages, so that in effect the liens take
ever the mortgages.
1 also told Mr. Maguire that it was our understanding
that he was acting for the carriers iser^ly as a matter of courtesy and
that there ms not going to be any legal expenses attached to his services,
which he confirmed.
I then asked Mr. Maguire whether he considered it advisable for us to file a status of claim or take any other action necessary
in order to protect our interests. Mr. Maguire said that he did not think
any action was necessary and as regards our filing the status of claim, as
we had already presented to the American Mail Line our accounts, he
thought that this was all that was necessary. In fact, the balance sheet - s •
L. i, mawla, leq. October 22, 1938.
which he saw showed that there was some #34,000.00 advanced charges due
the carriers, the bulk of this being due the Otmadiiin national and our-
salves, the C.M.St.P.* P, account being approximately #4000.00 &m& the
northern Pacific and Great Northern being about |1£0O©OO respectively,
with a correspondingly smaller asouat due the Union Pacific©
Mr. MjipfTH further stated that at the meetings that have
been held so far he has been very much dissatisfied with the evasiveness
of the American Hail Line representatives, but is in hopes that at the
meeting that is to take place on Tuesday, October £§th, they will be able
to get some frank and detailed information as to just what program the
American Hail Line propose adopting.
1 will be in Seattle on Tuesday, October 25th as I have
to attend a meeting of the Pacific Westbound Conference, and can, if you
still consider it advisable, arrange to attend the meeting of the
creditors. In view, however, of the statements made by Mr© Maguire, as
well as Mr, Oreavee, that they do not consider my being present at this
meeting absolutely necessary, you night wish to eeaonslder this feature
and, tf so, 1 shall appreciate veiy such if you will kindly telegraph m
,ipt.
If thaw are any further steps that you think I should
take in order to protect the Companyfs interests, I will greatly appreciate
your further instructions on this point.

RE: American Mail Lin® Indebtedness.
Gentlemen:
Yesterday afternoon the Creditors1 Cosm&ttee met with Messrs.
Bayley and Croson, who have recently been employed as counsen for the
American Mail Line in place of Bagle, Bogle and (fetes, who withdrew. Mr.
Bayley reported that he had had a short conference with Mr. Dollar regarding
the request that he guarantee payments within 30 days. He told us very
frankly that Mr. Dollar had declined to give any such assurance. RSM et al - 2 10/14/38.
The overhead expenses of the company are between #10,000,00 and
#12,000,00 per month, including salaries, office expenses, wharfage, insurance,
caretakers etc. Bayley and Croson have made some inquiries, principally among
creditors, as to the values of the five ships. They stated that they have been
iafoxmaliy advised that the junk value was estimated at between #175,000,00
and #200,000.00 per vessel, and that the reasonable sales value was approximately #500,000.00 per vessel.
Mr, Bayley will leave for San Francisco again October 16th for
further conference with the Mali Line executives. He stated that he had not
previously had an opportunity to discuss the situation with the creditors, and
that he wanted to ascertain their attitude before he took any further steps.
The creditors stated very definitely that unless we could receive some
tangible assurance within the next ten days we were going to throw the matter
into the courts.
Mr. Bayley will make two proposals to the Mail Line executives.
First: ThmX  a definite schedule of payments be assured, furnishing dates and sums
to be pald| or Second: That the present operating indebtedness be paid by
means of further loans upon the vessels.
Messrs. Bayley and Croson promised that by the end of the week of
the 17th they would either furnish us assurance that the Mail Line would adopt
one of the above proposals, or they would tell us frankly that such action
would be declined. In  other words, they would not lend themselves to the
practice of ^stalling* the creditors any further.
We were all very favorably impressed with the frankness of Messrs.
Bayley and Croson, which was a pleasing contrast to the evasive attitude
previously adopted by company officials.
I had a pritate talk with both Bayley and Croson, and they stated
that it was their desire and intention if it could be arranged to whrtc out as
soon as possible immediate payments in full of the spedial accounts, including
railroad accounts, approximately #60,000.00 and 274 accounts below #100.00
in amount, totalling $26,000.00.
As to the alternative proposals for settlement of the claims; If
the entire indebtedness is paid by the raising of loans upon the fleet, the
question of priority will not arise. If we receive reliable assurance of
periodic payments, I think it would be a better policy for the railroads to
accept pro rata installment payments rather than to insist upon their preferred
status. Some of the genera! creditors are rather touchy on this point, and
our insistence at this time might bpluage the whole business into litigation. RSM et al - 3 10/14/38
We shall fereatly appreciate it if you will each of you give us
your views upon this latter point before the next meeting of creditors,
which will probably be held on uctober 20th.
Yours truly,
(Signed) Thos. H. Maguire.
Assistant General Attorney.

#86,70 had already been used June 7th to apply P/lcrCinlay,   and if yeu
did net apply accordingly hew could yeu close out the McXinley acceunt?
Tifth paragraph of my letter 28th explained that detail
of various credits acceunt of adjustments would he advised yen when
applied,   and I therefore did not ga  to  the trouble of listing all items
in course of adjustment.   Item |19.4S is  the original advances May 7th
account shipment ex P/!fcKinley 661,   which is listed on agent's
statement of 28th,   aid yeu will  also  note  that advance charges as
originally accounted by yeu have not been disturbed and are left in
abeyance.   I  therefore do  not  understand what the trouble is and why
the necessity of any further inferaaatien to  enable you to  agree with
Vancouver records.
Set balance  tyjed as #9415.00 should iiave been #941§.14f
as since advised by artent.
^er your information,  I have suggested to Mr.  Arnum that,
now that the A.tf.Lin* are net operating,  we  night now  take ^teps  to
apply advances of #1277.#7,  which will  result in our outstandings

Yesterday la Seattle X had a further discission with
Mr* Sowe of the >*asriean Mail Line, and ha advises jb@ that im

Referring to correspondence exchanged with reference to
the American Hail Line outstanding at Victoria*
I was in Seattle yesterday and took the opportunity of
calling npon the ^®erieam mil Line* I found ont that during my absence
in the last Mr* R* B* Bush's services had been terminated aa of August
15th, and that the work in connection with the accounting was being
handled by a Mr* Row®. Ir* Rowe advised mm  that there was nothing new
to report except that they had held a meeting of the principal creditors
recently, at which the Jimeriean transcontinental lines, l.e* §reat
Northern, lorthem Pacific, C*M.St*P*& P. mr®  represented, when the
position of the American Mail Line was discussed at length* 1 asked Mr*
lews why it was that m had not been notified of this .meeting so as to
have given us mk opportunity of being present, particularly in view of
the fact that in ail probability the amount due the Canadian Pacific was
substantially greater than that due the American trans-continental lines*
Mr* Bows stated that it wee purely an oversight on their part and was
not dona intentionally, and promised that in future we would be kept
advised along with the other creditors*
In this connection I attach herewith copy ef a report which
was drawn up by the Attorney of the Croat Berthem Railway, nfto was one
of those present representing the Great northern* Will you kindly advise
whether there is any further action that I should take. I presume there
Is no objection to my finding out from the Ckw&ittee, if and nhem it is
appointed, just what action they are taking* You will notice in the
Oreat northern Hallway attorneyfs report th® statement is ssade that each
of the creditors was asked to state the anouat of their claim and the
status of the claim. Be you consider it advisable for m  to obtain one of

As advised you in ay telegram of July 25th, on the "President
Jackson*1 which ajrrtted Victoria it was not necessary for us to effect
any collection from the Astericaa Mall I*ina as the collect charges offset
the prepaid to the extent of fS08«64, and Mr.  Howard, at Victoria, has
applied this £20D«64 against the old outstanding, which has now been
reduced to -:9526.97#
The Canadian national traffic ex the *V re aidant Jeekaea*,
which consisted of 278 balee of silk, uns still on hand at Pier D up to
„today as the Canadian Rational had not yet received the cheque from the
American     lne covering the charges due them on this ship* which
aaotmt was in the neighbourhood of f8471*00, this inclining* of course,
the charges due them oh the general oargo which the Canadian national
handled direct from Victoria themselves♦
Tktfortnaateiy, as you probably know, Pier D, where this silk
mas discharged ex oiw Goast stea»r, took fire and was completely
destroyed this? afternoone As far as we have bean able to ascertain §0
hales of the Canadian national silk hat already been loaded in a car and
drawn ont, but m  eaanot- say definitely whm%  happened to the balance of
ZZ8 bales, but fresn^bly it must  have been lost in the fire*
On th© other hand w&  ar© rather fortunate in this resp#ct»
that as far as our own cargo is concerned , that is the genera! cargo
for local delivery im Vancouver* $hleh we brought over from Victoria
on the "Princess Ma(piiiaa% this cargo ms all discharged at Pier a-2,

from there July 29th, and in order to do this it is necessary that the silk
go forward from Vancouver hy passenger train on th® evening of Jnly 25th*

Further to my letter of July 12th in connection with the
Asaeriean Mail Line*
I sent you copy of my letter of July 16th to Mr* f illoughby
advising that the "President MoKinley" had passed up Victoria and proceeded
direct to Seattle but was coming through to Vancouver to discharge her
Canadian and United Kingdom cargo* The President McEinley" arrived in
Vancouver about noon, July 19th, and discharged her cargo that afternoon.
We had advised the American Mail Line here that we could not accept their
cargo until all charges had been paid in cash and the same advice was given
by the Canadian National. Nothing was forthcoming until this morning when
the American Mail Line's Vancouver Office deposited with Vancouver ^harf
draft for #431.52 which cohered all charges due us on cargo turned over to us
ex the "President MoKinley". They made a similar settlement with the Canadian
National and cargo is going forward by both lines tonight. Latest reports
indicate that the "President MoKinley" will be tied up in Vancouver.
The American Mail Line advise us that the next steamers,
the "President Jackson" due Victoria July 24th, and the "President Jefferson1*
due August ?th, will both call at Victoria and discharge their Canadian and
European freight, after which they will proceed to Seattle where they will
discharge their American cargo and will then come to Vancouver to be tied up
along side the. "President MoKinley".
As telegraphed you today the "President Jackson" is due
9 a.m. Sunday at Victoria with 278 bales of silk for Europe, routed Canadian
National, and 101 bales for Europe routed Canadian Pacific. In order to make
connection with the "Antonia" from Montreal July 29th it is necessary that the
silk be forwarded by passenger train from Vancouver Monday, July 25th, and in
order to do this the silk will have to move from Victoria on our Sunday night
B# C. Coast steamer. The American Mail Line are particularly anxious to make
the 29th sailing out of Montreal and have asked us to bring the silk forward
from Victoria on the Sunday night steamer on the understanding that immediately
we give them our account on Monday, their Vancouver Office will give us a
draft to cover all charges due us on the "President Jackson".
The American Mail Line have indicated that arrangements
have been mad© whereby sufficient funds will be available both for the
"President Jackson" and "President Jefferson" cargoes, although they have no #

Yesterday while I was in Seattle, I called on both Mr. Comode
as well as Mr. Bush, who advised me that they had received this telegram
froia you and also a similar telegram from Mr. Cowie, of the Canadian latioaal.
They stated that thay had been expecting to get something of this nature, in
view of the unsatisfactory state of their affairs with both Bailwsya, and
that they are issuing instructions that insofar as the ^President MeKlaley"
which is $m Tietoria, July 15th or ISth is concerned, settleuieat is to be
made in cash. Mr. Bush stated that as near as he could figure out the
amount they will have to pay on the ^President MoKinley" will be approximately
#§15.00, and he also raised the question as to what the situation would be
in connection with the *fresident Jaokson** which is due July 24th, and the
^President Jefferson* August 7th. I took the opportunity of telling Mr*
Bush that the same conditions would also prevail insofar as both of these
ships were concerned until their outstanding was finally disposed of.
from what 1 eosald gather, after these three ships arrive back
in Seattle they will be tied up along with the other two ships at present
tied tip in Seattle, and the affairs of the ilflffWM Mail Line will be
liquidated* Both Mr. Gormode and Mr* Bush stated that thers would be no
question but that the outstanding would be finally cleared up as it was only
a matter of completing a final balance of their affairs for submission to
the Maritime So^aission and that the Commission owe them sufficient money to
take care of practically all their outstanding debts.

For the first time,  th* tloma&saion re~
leasee!  in advance a summary of tho tarns it ma exacting for
tha proposed subsidy of 1*5,000,000 par annum for five years,
against #8,800,000 a y«ay under the old rmil mntraots, oan-
aallad Sum ;50,  1937*     at first blush,  tha conditions aeened
vary severe,  hut it was found on oloaar analysis that they
wara not as drastic aa thay appeared*    5?ha on* cmtatancilng requirement amounted in substance,  to this:

support tha $81800*000 in now loans --.'hieh ar* a$t»erequlslte
to a r,perrmnant*f sublsdv to succeed tha six-Months* interim
contract expiring July 85.
Parhapa tha second most important eon**
dition waa that by which tho entire mansigemetrt of the Dollar
Line would puma to the aovamnent if the subsidised eonjmny
ware unable to carry its finanolal load for even a relatively
short period*     Maiy,  but not all of the other  provisions **r*

accomplish tha two rwjor objectives.

its own conditions was regarded as a foregone conclusion*
En Saturn, the Dollar ateasshlp Lines
tnc, Ltd*, would receive, in addition to the loans:
A five-year operating differential sub*
sidy contract which, on the basis of an operating floet of 13
vessels and the initial subsidy percentages established by the
OoRWission, should yield the company an annual aubsid-   of ap-
proraltBately 03,000,000, or approximately #18,000,000 in the contrast period.    They are now operating a schedule ©ailing for 8
ships, of which 6 are aotuall.   In service.     :hus the subsidy on
the present basis of operations would  be nearer $8,000,000 than
#3,000,000.
