JNO. M. KINARD,
GIVES WIFE ALL.
Makes His Wife Richest Woman in
Hundred Words.-Leaves More
New York. Sept. 16.-A hundred
brief words, weighted each with ap
pro-iiately $1,000,000 and contain
in. in zheir entirety t-he last testa
ment of Edward H. Harriman, made
his widow. Mary Averell Harriman.
one of the wealthiest women in the
world. It is perhaps the briefest will
on recori for the disposal of any es
tate of such magnitude. All his
property is.left to Mrs. Harriman.
Wall street estimates that Mrs.
Harriman will inherit in realty and
pe rsonal pro perty bet ween $75.00(0.000
and $100.000,000. Mr. Harriman's~
pri;ate fortune is supposed to have
been greater than this by many mil
lions, but there is reason to believe
tbat his unmarried daughters, Mary
and Carol. and his married daughter,
Mrs. Robert Livingstone Gerry, and
his two sons. William Averell .and
Roland, a boy of 14. together with his
surniving -sister. Mrs. Simons, and
other relat-ives, have all been substan
tially provided for in gifts out of
hand and trust funds set aside by Mr.
Harriman during his lifetime.
The will is dated .Lne S, 1903. and
it was witnessed by Charles A. Pea
bdy, president of the Mutual Life
Insurance company, who drew it, and
C. C. Tet-bgoff. Mr. Peabody was Mr.
Harriman 's close personal friend and
was frequently a caler at Arden
house during his last illness. He re
linuished a law practice commonly
estimated as worth $100.000 a year
to assume at a smaller salary the ex
exclusive direction of a company in
which Mr. Harriman was heavily in
terested. Mr. Tethgoff was Mr'. Har
riman 's personal secretary.
Mrs. Harriman was Miss Mary Av
erel, diaughter of T. W. Averell, a
wea-thy banker of Rochester, who
made his aneye in the R. eWater
town & Ogdensburg railroad. She
brught her *husbasa fin,neial aid in
his early struggles in the market,
when aid was most valuable to him.
FHe never needed it again, for his ad
miistrative ability soon won for him
the 'support he needed. Their 36 years
o married life has always been said
to be ideally happy.
Upon Mris. Harriman's shouilders
will now rest the administration of
the 4:3.000 acres of woodland, pasture
lands and fertile black bottoms inl
theRampo valley and on the steep
sies of Tower HiM: the completion
of :he great house on which its mas

bequests to children or relatives, Mr.
Harriman avoided the large share of
the enormous inheritance tax, which
under the laws of the State of New
York, would otherwise be imposed.
Mrs. Harriman's dower rights- are
subject to no tax whatever, and the
remainping two-thirds of the estate to
a tax of only 1 per cent.
Orange county is the home of mil
lionaires and the county clerk's files
hold many important wills-that of
James S. (Silent) Smith. for example,
which disposed of $25,000,000. paid
an inheritance tax of $923,495.55, the
largest on record.
DENOUN~CES LAW'S DELAY.
Taft Decries American Brand of
Justice.--Rich Get the Advan
Chiicago. Sept. 1 6.--Speakinig with
great earnestness to a mass meeting
in Orchestra hall to-n.ight, President
Taft decIared that no question he
fore the American peo)ple to-day is
more implortat than the improvemen.t
of the admninistration of justice, and
announced his intention of recom
mending to congress the appointme'nt
of a commission to take up the ques
tion -of t-he law/'s delay in the feder
al courts. The p)resident said he
hoped that the report of this commins
sion, when rendered, would serve also
as a guide to the States of the Un
ion i effecting remedial legislation.
'Mr. Taft devot-ed the entire first
part of his speech to the subject of
labor and he said -he intended to ree
ommend to congress in his first mes
sage legislation te carry out the plat
form promises as to injunctions-that
no injunction or restraining order
shuld be granted without notice ex
ept where irreparable injury would
result, in which case a speedy hearing
should be granted.
The president declared anew his-be
lief in organized labor and congrat
ulated the leaders of the movement
that "'they have set their faces like
flint against the doctrines of social
Taking up next the subject of the
conurts the president asserted with
earnest emphasis that the administra
tion of a eriminal law to-day is a dis
grace to0 American civilization.
.Ashamed of the fact as America
miht well be. lhe dleclared that the
poo man has not now an equal op
portuity wit-h the rich litigant and
~said it was his purpose to do what
he could to place the poor~ man on a
more equal footing.
"There is no sub~ject upon which I
feel so deeply as upon the necessity
for reform ini the administration of
othI civil anod criminal Law. To sum
it all up in one phrase. lie difBeculty

"The tendency of legislation is to
throw the reins on the back of the
jury and let them follow their own
sw eet will, influenced by all the arts
of counsel for the defendant in lead
ing them away from the real points
at issue. and in awakening their emo
tions of pity for the defendant in for
getfulness of the wrongs of the pros
eeut-ing witnesses or it may be of the
deceased. and of the rights of society
to be protected against crime.
"But reform in our criminal pro
cedure is not the only reform that
we Jought to have in our courts. On
the civil side of the courts there is
undue delay, and this always works
for the benefit of the man with the
longest purse. Thbe employment& of
lawyers and the payment of costs all
becomie more expensive as the litiga
tioni is extended.
"'Of all the questions that are be
fore tihe American people, I regard no
one as more important tlhan this, to
wit, the improvement of the adminis

so that the poor man will have as

sometimes wondered hbow lie had
ever managed to get along without
this convenien<ce. This man had long
realized that the telephone was say
ig him many hours of time and
many miles of travel. Business that
before required an entire day, taken
from his work, to transact, could then
be attended to in a few minutes. It
was not necessary for him to go to
towni to ascertain market cogditions.
If he had produce or f.ruit to sell he
could learn t:he prices being p)aid and
perhaps make his sale before leaving
home. He was a,ble to keep in touch
with the world. His family .did not
feel that it was cut off from the out
side. No matter how bad the roads
were the telephone would advise as

how sick fr.iends or relatives were.
