Ivashville Millionaire Loses Suit
for ?"HUK)0 Againht President
BEGAN CAREER AS OFFICE BOY.
Claimed That Profits of Laud Com
pany Were Withheld From Him
. by Banker Geo. S. Edgell
Court Rejected Claim.
Nhw York. March S. After ear of liti
gation Thomas J. Feldner. who began life
as Austin Corbln's office boy, and who Is
now a man worth millions, of Nashville,
Tenn., has lost his suit for 3n.O0O, which
he claimed as his alleged share of the
profits of the land department of the Corbln
Interwoven with the details of Mr. Feld
ner's suit Is a romance of Iop and fortune.
This Georgia boy obtained the confidence
of Austin Corbln. won the daughter of Mil
ton II. Smith, president of the Louisville
and Nash Me Railway, although a rhal
shot himself In the young woman's pres
ence, and linallv Mr. Feldner and his bride
became the adopted children of Samuel M.
Murphy, known as the surface railway kin?
of Tennessee. Mr. Murphy left them a for
tune of from J1.W0.000 to J2.O00.O0O.
Mr. Teldner's claim was that Austin Cor
!)'.!!. before his death, entered Into an agree
ment with him. by which he was to have
one-half of the profits of the land depart
ment of the cimpany. He was umble to
produce this agreement, but alleged th.it It
had been taken, with othr papers, from his
desk by George S. EdEell, one of the sur
viving members of the firm.
Mr. Edgell Is well known in banking cir
cles, and had President Roosevelt a" his
guest at Newport. N. H.. last fall, where
the preserves, of the Corbln estate are locat
ed. Mr. Edsell duikd taking Mr. Feldner's
papers, and th onus of proving the exist
ence of the pirtnershlp agreement being on
Mr. Feldner's shoulders, the United States
Court decided against him.
Austin Corbln took a liking to Thomas J.
Feldner when he was a boy in the Atlanta
branch office of the banking company. Mr.
Coibln brought, him to this city when he
was 21 vearp old and put him In charge of
the land department at a salary of 33,tiCO a
car. Mr. Corbln died In June, 18S6. and
later In the same vear Mr. Feldner pre
sented a claim for half the profits of the
land department up to that time.
When this claim was made Feldner was
discharged. In January, 1897, he brought
suit In the United. States District Court for
the Southern District of Georgia against
George S. Edgell as one of the surviving
members of the banking company.
As the corporation had assets amounting
in value to more than $1.000000 In Georgia,
his action threw the property In that State
into the hands of a receiver for a time.
The case was flnallv argued and submitted
to Judge Emory Speer in July, 190L His
decision has Just been rendered. The costs
will amount. It Is said, to about 313,000.
Mr. Feldner's marriage. In 1898. to Miss
Nettle Ben Smith, a daughter of Milton H.
Smith, followed closely upon Wm. Preston
Thornton's attempted suicide. Thornton had
been engaged to Mils Smith. When he re
ceived a note from her declining to keep an
appointment, he went to her home acj shot
himself In Miss Smith's presence.
Soon after his marriage Mr. Feldner
formed the acquaintance of the late Sam
uel M. Murphv. Mr. and Mrs. Murphv had
no children, and they became so much at
tached to Mr. and Mrs. Feldner that thev
adopted them. Mr. Murphy died In 1600,
leaving practically all of his estate to Mr.
and Mrs. Feldner. -

In every ward the Democratic fepllng
seems to be unusually good. Although there
Is more than one aspirant to the nomina

at the election. In several of the wards
there will be no contest.

In six wards there will be no Republican
candidates for the Houe. and In other
wards, where there Is more than one can
didate, some of the Republicans are talking
strongly of coming out on an independent
The Republicans hive not overcome the
partv strife which prevailed at the recent
election. Certain candidates for the House
threaten to come out independently It they
are defeated at the primaries, and this un
settled state of affairs is not altogether
pleasing to Republican leaders.
The Democratic Convention to nominate a
ticket for the City Council will be held on
Wednesday. The date originally set was
Thursday, but was changed in order to give

The ticket agreed upon for the Cojuncll
seems to meet with general approval, and
opposition in no form is anticipated by the
party leaders. II is said that some of the
prominent Republicans of the city have
spoken favorably of the ticket.
While th Republican Convention to nom
inate a Council ticket it to be held Thurs
day, no apparent effort is being made to se
cure men to consent to become candidates.
As stated in The Republic yesterday, there
appears to be a feeling of distrust among
the Republicans, growing out of the party
division at the November election and pri
maries preceding the election, and for that
reason prominent Republicans who would
like to enter the race are lacking In courage
to make the attempt.
Republican leaders who have been asked
regarding candidates for the Council will
not discuss Drobable candidates and decline
to predict what might be done at the con

WILL INVESTIGATE CAUSE
OF CRUCIBLE EXPLOSION.
Inqneat May n-termlnr Orlisln of Ac
cident Which Resulted In John
Coroner Funkhouser will to-day conduct
an investigation Into the death of John
J Hennessy, who was killed Saturday night
by the explosion ot a crucime oi dwuni
metal at the Federal lead Company's plant
In Cheltenham. An attempt will be made
to learn the pauss of the explosion.
The accident is believed to have been du
to the breaking of a Jacket which controlled
a tank of water above the crucible, which
allowed cold water to dip into the crucibl".
The crucible contained 7,000 pounds of molten
metal, which was being prepared for the
night run. The contact of the cold water
with this flerv mass generated a vast
quantity of steam and gas, which, unable
to escape, caused the explosion.
Tho huge crucible was rent asunder
with a force which shook houses in the
neighborhood and was heard a mile away.
Portions of it were hurled In every direc
tion, damaging the walls of the plant.
Hennessy, who was a "ladle" man, and
a laborer named James A. Termant, wrere
the only workmen near the crucible when
It burst Hennessy was knocked down by a
piece of the flying debris and burled under
ft, while the white-hot metal, escsping
from the ruined crucible, trickled through
the debris and about the unfortunate man,
burning him terribly.
Termant escaped with a badly lacerated
scalp. AS soon as he recovered from the
shock he set about rescuing Hennessy, as
sisted by Patrolman Hussey and Miller of
the Mounted District, who had been at
tracted by the explosion. The debris was
pulled from Hennesy. and he was carried
to the office of Doctor Murrell. No. 5T47
