the K.piiiable Life Assurance society,
appeared to be somewhat Mattered by
.Mr. llan iuaii's attentions. loiter at a
directors meeting Mr. Hyde made a
speech accusing li.n i inian and friends
of trying to kick him out and to get
control of the society and its $ 'WUinO.

and speechless. Ilarriuiau sat back in
his chair and gave forth sounds which
those nearest to him said later ap
peared to boil out in oue continuous
torrent. His resignation as a trustee
of the society followed.
"Not Yet, but Soon."
Uefore the Armstroug committee he
told how on a certain night he had
been kept at the .Metropolitan club on
one pretense or anotlier while the deal
for the control of the Equitable society
was being put through. He said t bat

Harriman and Odell.
Cliarles E. Hughes when conducting
the insurance invest igat ion probed
deeply into the intimate friendship of
Mr. Harriman and former Covernor of
New York I.ciijamin It. Odell. and Mr.
Harriman got off a now familiar joke.
"It has been charged." Mr. Hughes
said, "that through your relations with
Mr. Odell you have political Influence.
What have you to say to that?'
"Well." came the reply. "I should
say that Governor Odell had political
influence because of bis relations with

Whenever the impenetrable reserve of
the financier is mentioned the story Is

record when Ilarrinian ever showed
any animation in public. It was in
the fall of VMC. when the great I.ucin

was completed at Salt Lake City.
On this occasion Mr. Harriman
danced. At the close of the ceremonies
Mr. Ilarriinan. who' bad been grave
and dignified throughout, entered bis
private car to leave iho scene. The
band struck up Yankee Hoodie." A
faint smile dawned on tin Harriman
feature's and began to spieael. Pres
ently he began to balance gracefully,
and soon, in the midst of a circle of
prominent railroad officials, be was
doing the highland fling in the most
abandoned style-. Smleleiily the band
stopped playing, aud Mr. Harriman
gravely sat down.
