PRESIDENT OF PENNSYLVANIA ROAD
BROKEN BY GRAFT DISCLOSURES
Philadelphia, Pa.. Oct. 26. President
Alexander J. Cassatt of the Pennsylva
nia railroad spent one long day at his
desk Wednesday, the first for months.
and now is reported too 111 to leave his
home at Haverford.
The report of his condition did not
come from-Pennsylvania railroad offi
cials, who persisted in the policy they
have maintained ever since the news
of the great railroad man's breakdown
first became public. Instead, it came
from trades people and friends not
bound by the same motives as the offl-
Jals of the road are.
Immediately after the news of his
ollapse whs brought to the office it
was officially announced that the pro
posed trip of inspection,- upon which
President Cassatt and a number of the
directors and other officials of the road
were to start today, has been postpon
ed. No definite date was set when the
trip wiil be taken.
t'ollapoe Said to lie Complete.
Despite the assurances on the part of
the management of the road, the rea
slt, named William Voigt. aged f.o. He J son for which is obvious, it can be cer
was arrested today. jlainly statenl that. the oollapsef Pres-
. ident Cassatt is complete and that his
condition is dangerous in the extreme;
that he went to his office and again
assumed control of affairs of the giant
corporation this week n direct defiance
of the orders of bis physician: and that
it Is probable that he will never set
foot within them again.
So certain Is the management secret
ly that the big man's days are ended
that a strong battle is even now on
for the presidency.
Henry C. Frick of Pittsburg, Andrew
Carnegie's old partner, will be the nex:
president M the road unless all sign?
fiinoca of Graft Scandal.
Revelations of crookedness and graft
among the officials of his road before
the Interstate commece commission
are directly responsible for Cassatt's
breakdown. It is fairly certain that
the president, who busied himself en
tirely with great policies and left de
tails to subordinates, knew little' or
nothing of the grafting. That he was
deceived Is shown by his famous trip
to Washington, when he assured Pres
ident Roosevelt that rebates were un
known on his road.
