of men o? large butiness. as well as the myriads of stockholders who were

BODY TO BE BROUGHT HOME
Death Not Known Publicly for Several Hours Owinj
to Desire I liai Financier's Son in iNevv York Should
First Be Notified?His Withdrawal from Busi?
ness Prevented Stock Market Flurries.
[By Cable to TI u ? t
Rome, March 31.?J. Pierpont Morgan died very peacefully to
day at five minutes past noon, but the news of his death was no
given to the press until 3:20 p. m., lest if cabled at midday it shoul<
reach New York before the Stock Exchange had opened. Sine?
Wednesday Mr. Morgan had been unable to take nourishment, anc
throughout yesterday he was. for the most oart, in a comatose state
His nerves were shattered and completely exhausted, yet so grea*
was his vitality, so strong was his constitution and so sound wen
his organs that he lived on and clung to life, which slowly ebbec
This morning the great financier's temperature rose to 104'...
His pulse was 140 and his respiration 48. In such circumstances th<
doctors' efforts to prolong life artificially were fruitless. Yesterda)
afternoon the doctors realized that the end was near and issued i
bulletin stating that his condition was grave.
A MOMENT OF CONSCIOUSNESS.
In some rare and brief intervals of consciousness Mr. Morgar
opened his eyes, and the customary dominating, keen look was un?
changed. Once he raised his right arm, which was bent, and felt hit
muscles, as if to convince himself that they still were wrong, ther
sank back-, obviously weaker, but apparently satisfied.
Up to yastcrday Mr. Morgan had occasionaly given his favorite
daughter. Mrs. Sattcrlcc, and also Miss Hamilton, a smile of recog
nition. but gradually his exhaustion increased to such an extent thai
he was unable even to open his eyes.
He had not spoken since Saturday. His last words were ad
dressed to his son-in-law, telling him. reassuringly: "You bet I will
pull through." Mr. Morgan had implicit faith in his doctors, and in
' turn they were convinced they would have cured him had he pol
i lost on Wednesday the power of swallowing.
Artificial nourishment was immediately administered, and this
staved off death for three days, but last night Mr. Morgan ceased
to assimilate the little nourishment that had been administered, and
death soon followed.
This morning the Rev. Mr. Gardner Brcwn, rector of All Souls'
Chinch, and the Rev. Mr. Nelson, rector of the American Episco?
palian Church, both visited Mr. Morgan, but he could not recognize
them. No arrangements have yet been made for the funeral, and
i instructions from J. P. Morgan, jr.. are awaited from New York.
The body will certainly be taken to the United States for burial.
Most Americans and also many of the Roman nobility left cards
I at the Grand Hotel. King Victor Emmanuel sent an aide-de-camp to
i express his condolences, and Kaiser Wilhelm also telegraphed.
Dr. M. Allen Starr attributed the financier's breakdown to
emotion caused by the investigation carried out by the Pujo com
? mittee at Washington.
While the official bulletin gives the cause of death as nervous
- prostration resulting in general mental and physical collapse, no
; doubt seems to be entertained that it was the strain of appearing
; before the Pujo committee and trying to make plain to a critical
audience intricate problems of finance on a great scale, while age
I and physical breakdown had already sapped his strength, which
j really paved the way for the collapse which followed when going
| up the Nile. The banker is eulogized on many sides for thus sacri
i Being his health and strength rather than leave the attacks of preju?
diced critics unanswered. "How many.'' it is asked, "would have
done as he did? How many would have utilized such a large fortune
as he possessed to avoid and seek shelter far from the questions of
1 the committee?"
i?. TI ? las? stated P vs.]
Rome, March 31.?J. Pierpont Morgan 'ied here to-day at five
minutes, after noon. For months his health had been declining, but
the symptoms became greatly aggravated ?bout a week ago. and
since Wednesday last he had been in a semi comatose condition.
To-night his body, lying in the death chamber, is surrounded
by flowers, of which many are pink carnations. Messages of
sympathy have been received from King Victor Emmanuel, high
officials of state, the diplomatic representatives and from many per?
sonal friends in all parts of the world. The death of Mr. Morgan
was not known in Rome until several hours after it occurred, owing
to the desire that Mr. Morgan's son, f. Pierpont Morgan, jr., who is
in New York, should first be notified.
For five days Mr. Morgan received artificial nourishment, but
was unable to assimilate the food. As a result, he very rapidly lost
strength. For many hours prior to his death he was in a condition of
semi-coma, which prevented him from recognizing those about him
His end was without suffering.
Mr. Morgan's daughter. Mrs. Herbert L. Satterlee, who had
been in constant pttendance. was at the deathbed. She held the hand
of her father and tried to obtain some sign of recognition. She
thought that when the supreme moment came he faintly pressed
her hand. Mr. Satterlee and the physicians almost carried the weep?
ing woman out of the room, where friends tried to comfort her.
The American Ambassador and Mrs. Thomas J. O'Brien, the
Secretary of the Embassy, George Post Wheeler, and Mrs. Wheeler,
who went to the hotel this afternoon to inquire about Mr. Morgan's
condition, were there when his death -was announced. They ra
mained to offer their services and express condolences.
All the Rome newspapers publish tributes to Mr. Morgan, ex?
pressing the deep sense of loss felt by the Italian people. It has
been suggested that Mr. Morgan's body should be taken to the
United States on board a warship.
