Andrew Carnegie, who wa. 77 years
old Monday. In teltlng yesterday how
he has unburdened lilmnclf of the care
f hi millions by turning them over to
a corporation which will perpetuate hU
"I am happy in gettlnj all this off my

We all feel that."
Mr. Carnegie spoke of the condition
of financial want that had faced n.ue of
the Preiddents after their i etliement.
Heferrlng to a letter on this suiijecl
recently published by John I) t'rlm
mlns. he ald:
".Mr. Crlmtnlns Is entitled to tile credit

Mr. Cleveland, who, howevpr. declined

portant Institution which would give
Mm a salary. Finding that other dlrec
tors had not salaries, he declined the
offer, saying hi' name was not for sale.
If was offered any sum resulted to
keep him and hN family In comfort
until he found suitable occupation, hut
this he declined also In a letter worthy
Oen. Orant's case was even more
pitiful than President Cleveland's, said
Mr. Carnegie, and other Presidents suf
fered more or less.
"Oen. Orant fell so far behind In the
White House." explained the Ironmas
ter. "thai he was going to stop all dlplo.
matlc and cerpmonlal dinners, which
cost JR00 each."
Apparently to show that the private
pension Idea was not without precedent
Mr. Carnegie cited the case of George
W. Chllds of Philadelphia, who was, he.
said, entitled to great credit. Mr. Chllds
objected strongly, according to Mr. 'Car
negie, to Gen. Grant's proposed re
trenchment and secured n fund from a
few, who were only too glad to pro
vide It, and the dinners were continued,
Mr. Carnegie said he believes that Gen.
flrant never knew Just what at range
ment was made.
The General's last resort In falling
health to the writing of his memoirs
In order to obtain funds and the needed
assistance he received from friends In
making them successful wero char
acterized by Mr. Carnegie ns a shame
upon the country.
"Imagine." he aald, "the year nr more
of misery spent by thin 'auger that
could, bore' whom Lincoln found,
u-hn Achieved victory for the Union,
and Imagine the nation which failed to
provide its hero with means necessary
to prevent pecuniary cares In old nge
and kept him In poverty, when a small
pension would have Insured n happy
To show, as he Raid, that Mncnln
must have suffered In the knowledge
that In case of his death his family
would hn left comparatively poor, Mr.
Carnegie Included In bis ntuteinenl a
letter written by Mrs. Lincoln, presum
ably In 1S64. The letter, which has re
cently come Into Mr. f'nrnegle'H hands,
Is ns follows;
