I New York Sept HThe will of
c E H Harriman u ill be filed this week
according to Robert S Lovctt who
I has been elected chairman of the
Union Pacific executive committee to
succeed Mr Harriman lu the adminis
tration ot the vast Harriman railroad I
interests Mr Lovott who was be
1 > lieved to have been closer to Mr Har I
front
rlman than any other man would not
et
it
discuss the contents of the will but
dolt said it had been drawn by Charles A I
NDk9 Peabody president of the Mutual Life
ag tor
Insurance company and that It was
tars In hIs possession I
7 city
rJajj This will which is perhaps exciting
hsacjl more Interest than any similar docu
ThjJ meat In many years will probably be
flied for probate at Goshen the
CI3 county
6 scat of Orange county which Includes
the largo HarrIman estate at Arden
ie of For legal purposes a copy may be en
icreiol tered in the courts ot this city and
Prinefl it is understood that the first an
Tiftfl nouncment of the wills details will bo
made in this city It was understood
thfvt the will would probably be filed
on Thursday
In Among Mr Harrlmans Intimate
friends the belief prevails that the
fd
fdfe11 enormous Harriman railroad holdings
talk arc not to bo divided for a long pe
riod and that tho will creates a trust
for their administration tho incomo
S going to the heirs It is also said
that while the railroad and commer
cial interests will be held Intact
i
I through a trusteeship the will gives
to Mrs Harriman the magnificent es
tate at Arden and also the town house
I In Fifth avenue
If these surmises are correot and
they are generally credited in Wall
street many localities in various parts
6f the country will rejoice It will
mean that the plans for railroad de
r velopment which Mr Harriman had
nnder way will he fully executed by
the trustees of his estate In acquir
ing a considerable Interest in the Erie
railroad It was commonly accepted
that Mr Harriman contemplated a
radical improvement In the system
I particularly in the suburban service
On tho strength of this belief property
5i values along the suburban lines adja
r cent to Now York and other largo
I
1 cities wero largely Increased The
t I same Is said to bo true of other rail
ir roads and transportation systems
I in which the financier was Interested
and on which ho had not had time to
execute any plans ho may have formed
I for their improvement
The states of New York and New
Jersey are particularly interested In
the will as It was only a few months
before his death that Mr Harriman
SjS proposed to donate 35000 acres of
laud In the northern part of New Jer
sey to a public park his plan being to
have tho state of New York and the
Btato of Now Jersoy contribute equal
portions thus creating an enormous
and magnificent playground and game
and forest preserves within a short
ride from the metropolis
Many charitable organizations arc
its also deeply Interested in the contents
of the will

I
S t SAYS FRIDAY IS NOT
r DAY fOR EXECUTIONS
Omaha Nob Sept 14 Because
Judge Sutton of the DcUlas county
district court departed from the old
1 I ciiHtom of fixing Friday as a date for
executions In sentencing John Mas
i ourides murder of a South Omaha po
lice officer to ho hanged on a Monday
tho Omaha ministerial union yester
day adopted resolutions commending
y f i tho judge Speaking of fixing the dale
t for the execution on Monday Instead
of Frlda Judge Sutton said i
I The execution of murdorers on Fri I
J day always has boon abhorrent to me
+ It is a custom dating back into an
I tiquity and nothing less than a mock I
cry of the crucifixion of ChrisL Al
though this may be sentiment it
seems to me with five other days In
the week in which to vindicate law and
Justice there Is no necessity of con
fining an execution to tho day upon
which the Saviour gavo up his life
Never before so far as Is known
has a man been sentenced in Nebras
ka to be hanged on any other day than
Friday

tary boards
I P S Haner chairman of the state
j board of livestock commissioners of
I Illinois In his address of welcome to
the dele atcs called attention to the
I fact that In order to further tho work
of livestock sanitation uniform state
laws were necessary
I President W H Dalrymple of Lou
I iHiuia in his annual address said that
lu hr red tip pear future would ace
1 uniform legislation In every stale
along lines of modem sanitation and
disease control
Tho recent outbreak of the foot and
mouth disease and the extreme danger
of tho malady to ha stockgrowcrs
herds were explained by A Melvin
chief of the bureau of animal Indus
try Chief Melvin described lu de
I tall tho action of thin insidious dis
temper which attacks sheep hogs cat
tle and goats While he said the mal
I ady was not necessarily fatal yet It
caused heavy losses to owners of
livestock when it is communicated to

Bryan Discusses Political
Affairs at Dallas
Texas
Dallas Texas Sept 14 Denounc
ing as an embezzler of power a man
who would violate a party pledge rat
ified by the voters of his party Wil
liam J Bryan today outlined his views
on the tariff before a largo audience
in Bush Temple
Mr Bryan came to Dallas at the
solicitation of party leaders of the
state to discuss political affairs
Cannonism Mr Bryan described
as despotism and lie suggested an
amendment to the rules of the house
of representatives to correct what he
considered faults sM >
While not denying a candidate the
right to repudiate apart of his plat
form such repudiation he asserted
should come before the election
Mr Bryans subject was Democra
cy and the Tariff Ho emphasized
time necessity of senators and con
gressmen being bound by partY plat
forms aaying ho would later suggest
a form for such a plan
If all tho Democrats in the senate
and house had voted against every
proposed increase InUte tariff andfor
every proposed decrease we might
have made our fight next year upon
the partys record without making a
specific declaration on Hems of sched
ules said Mr Bryan But In view
ol the facts that Democrats in oth
the senate and the house differed as
to the Interpretation of the Demo
cratic platform and as to the rates
that should be Imposed under the
various schedules I believe that it is
necessary for our platform to bo spe
cific and emphatic
If we expect to secure control of
congress + re must convince the pub
lic that we will If entrusted with
power favor material reductions Un
less our candidates for congress can
agree before tho election they arc
not likely to agree after the election

JUDGE GEMMILL DEPLORES
OF SICKLY SENTIMENTALITY

mentality does as much as any other
ono thing to promote crime according

nine times out of ten these pickpock
ets arc set free and go back to ply
their nefarious vocations again I
Maudlin sentimentality is to blame I
for all of this This must cease or so

I
New York Sept Developments
In the North Pole controversy today
contain arguments lu favor of both
Commander Peary and Dr Cook The
loftrepeated charges that Peary madu
I use of Cooks supplies is denied by
Herbert L Bridgman secretary of the
Pear Arctic club On the other hand
tho supporter of the Brooklyn phy
1 sician have been quick to seize upon
the intelligence that only one Eski
mo stood by tho naval officers side
when he raised the American flag at
the extreme top of the earth
The backers of Commander Peary
point out that whIle Allan Whitten
the boatswain of tho Peary auxlllarv
steamer Erik In 1005 and 190S de
I clares that Pears people took Dr
Cooks stores at Etah and Annotok
he admits he did nol know whether
or not their removal was by arrange
ment with Rudolph Francke Cooks
steward who had been left in charge
of the supplies Herbert L Bridg
mans statement wired from Sydney
N S where he Is awaiting the arriv
al of Peary on the Roosevelt asserts
that instead of appropriating his riv
als stores Peary only saved them
after they had been abandoned by
Francke Mr Bridgman says Francke
was picked up by Pear s men In
North Star Bay between Capo York
and Etah while ho was trying to re I
I turn to civilization from the post
where Cook had left him Francke
sag iMr Bridgman said he was phys
ically unfit to remain longer in tho
extreme north and after Pear s sur
geon had confirmed this statement
I
Franoke was given money by Peary
to take him home
I The attitude of Cooks supporters
here after hearing that Peary had I
only ono Eskimo to confirm his state
ment regarding the 36 hours spent at
the pole Is expressed by Frederick
S Dellenbaugh an explorer and of
ficer of the American Geological socie
ty Mr Dellcnbaugh Is quoted today
as follows
It would now seem that tho pre
ponderance of Eskimo is In favor of
Dr Cook There evidently was no
scientist present In either case to ver
ify the observations Perhaps two
Eskimos are better than ono Dr
Cook says two Eskimos wero with him
at the pole but I dcnt know that it
makes any great difference
