MAGNATE AT SEA
E. H. Harriman as Seen by War
Correspondent at Close
QUIET AND UNOBTRUSIVE
A Contrast With Two United States
Senators What Japs Think of
My first glimpse of the real man was
on a voyage, writes Frederick I 'a liner,
the famous war correspondent, lu Col
lier's. When the ocean is the 1'acine
lind there are few people n hoard you
learn your fellow passengers pretty
well. So you did on this occasion, in
eluding two United States senators,
lliirri'iinn spent more time with the
engineer than with them.
We started from Yokohama with tin
Idea of heating th;, record to San
Francisco. A smooth sea all the way
meant nn even chance of success. This
disappeared for everybody except Har
riman when the first three days were
entirely unpropit ions. 1 think that he
thought he must succeed because he
himself was almanl. When some one
offered him a !ct of :?J.!0:) to !?l,w:
that he would fail he too!: it. Then he
started out to win the bet with all the
7.est that he lias shown in obtaining
control over a new railroad. Fair
weather broke the next day and con
tinued. We legau to feel that the quiet
little man was putting demoniacal en
ergy into the stokers and into the very
engines. My the dramatic spate of a
few minutes he won. Harriman never
advertised the fact that he gave the
$2,000 to the engine room crew. Win
ning was the point in mind.
On the whole he was the least obtru
five of any great millionaire with
whom I 'have ever come in contact.
Whether he is doing a kindness or do
Jng business, lie never uses words
where thought or action will take their
place. I noticed that when he told a
steward to move a lady's chair to a
better position it was in an undertone
of "brevity. The lady did not know of
his thoinrhtf illness. She would if
James .T. Hill had been In Harriman's
place. Mierpoiit Morgan's politeness
would have had the aplomb of a Jove.
The two senators were always ready
to pick up Harriman's handkerchief,
although they are on record as trust
busters. When you cut away their
egoism and glad handism the skeleton

Please take two more away."

that remained consisted merely of a
rubber backbone and floating ribs. On
one occasion Senator N.. looking
around for an audience, engaged Har
riman in a discussion of the rate prob
lem. It was the encounter of a rapier
and a pillow full of words. Besides,
Harriman was not arguing; he was
Wanteal to Kurapf Heporlerw.
senator W. said that he hoped to
avoid the importunate interviewers in.
San Kranciset because he did not want
any "newspaper glory." When he ar
rived he graciously distributed a long
typewritten statement and called the
reporters "boys." He said that be
would wait over a day instead of tak
ing the next morning's Overland lim
ited. I found afterward that he had
gone on the Pacific express, because
passes are not honored on the Overland.
Meanwhile the king no fat. overfed.
smug, vulgar, easy going king, but a
self made, intense. Argus eyed, little.
efficient king had gone aboard the tug
waiting for him and was being shot
across the country by the mighty or
ganization he controlled, and controlled
so absolutely perhaps because senators
are cheap. So cheap were these two
that you could not withhold your ad
miration from Harriman as a thor
oughbred fighting man.
The contrast made me understand
the point of view of the Japanese, who.
being foreigners, can- see ns in the
large. Thev looked on Harriman as
one of the really great men of Ameri
ca. a commander, who is the counter
part of a Togo, an Oyama. or a Kuro
ki: a type of creative organizer who
has brought to America the industrial
power which they so desire to emulate
and in the country where the civilian
is supposed to be of a lower breed than
the official they gave the man who had
never held office at home more honors
than they had ever paid to any visiting
American since Orant.
