LONDON APPEALS TO
" J. PIERPONT MORGAN
Wants Him to Reorganize Its
(Steamship Lines ETcning Paper
Witty at Slillionaire's Expense.
SPECIAL BT CABLE TO THE NEW YORK
HERALD AND THE ST. LOUIS REPUBLIC.
London, May 17. (Copyright, 1901) Not
withstanding all the outcry and alarm about
Mr. Morgan seizing Great Britain's ship
pint:, Londoners are now crying out to him
to com and take them In his mighty grasp
and reorganize their steamship lints. The
wheezy things ran as they liked, this way
and that. The Thames penny steamers
have been suppressed and London believes
Mr. Morgan alone can give it a steamboat
It Is rumored In Birmingham that Me"rs.
Morgan and Terkes already have made ar
rangements to provide the Thames with
American-bull t boats, which would be
much better and up to date than the obso
lete steamers which have been plying on
the river for taany years. It Is feared that
the Job Is hardly big enough for either of
these capitalists, and probably next year
will see new boats, belonging to the County
Counclldin the river.
Apropos of the "Morganlxlng" scare, as It
may be called, one evening paper, poking
fun at the enterprizlng millionaire, states
that Mr. Morgan has now all but bought
the Manchester Canal, and is bidding for
the rest of Europe, Anal, Africa and Aus
tralia. Mr. J. Plerpont Morgan, who returned to
London this week, has been enjoying him
self socially. He occupied a box at the
opera on Wednesday, when Mme. Melba
mads her first appearance of the season.
Thursday night a big dinner In his honor
was given by Mr. and Mrs. Clinton Daw
kins. Anions; the guests were Lord and Lady
Granville and Lord and Lady Londonderry.
Lord Londonderry, It will be remembered,
la Postmaster General, under whose depart
ment the question of mall subsidies to At
lantic steamship campanles are divided.

I heard a story yesterday about Andrew
Carnegie Illustrative of the fact that the

fortune. It seems that Mr. and Mrs. Car
nerie. who m staying at the Walsinzham.

some friends at the Carlton. As they were
about to leave the Walslnghsm an attend

"Shall I call a cab. sir?" he asked.
Mr. Carnegie shook his head and went
cot of the door with Mrs. Carnegie. They
stood on the pavement in the drizzle until
a. Charing Cross 'bus came along. They
climbed on board, and when the conductor
reached out his hand for the fares Mr. Car
negie cheerfully paid his 2 pence.
The other passengers were not aware of
the fact that they were riding In the com
