GIRL FINDS A HAWLEY
WILL; GETS MILLIONS
New York, Feb. 13. Developments
at Babylon. L. I., seem to Indicate
clearly that Edwin Hawley, the rail
way magnate who died suddenly on
Feb. 1, made a third and binding will
last September. These developments,
moreover, point to the fact that the
bachelor millionaire included in this
last testament provisions whereby
Miss Margaret Cameron, his protege
for nearly 20 years and known gener
ally as his niece, was bequeathed Ef
fingham park, his splendid country es
tate at Babylon, as well as his fine
city mansion at 19 East Sixtieth street.
Besides these two magnificent
homes Miss Cameron will inherit a
large part of the vast fortune amassed
by the railroad financier, who since
the death of E. H. Harriman three
years ago had been generally regard
ed In Wall street as destined to be
come the successor of that wizard of
In spite of the emphatic denials of
the lawyers for the millionaire's es
tate and members of the family, it
was declared that Miss Cameron, ac
companied by Mrs. Walter S. Cran-
dell, whose husband was a nephew of
Mr. Hawley and one of the three e
ecutors of the estate, visited Effing
ham park last Tuesday and with little
effort found the will which, according
to tne same reports, was found to
have been witnessed and signed by
Henry Peterson, for a considerable
time one of the chauffeurs at Effing
ham park, and John Williams, super
intendent of the estate. The report
that Mr. Hawley and Miss Cameron
had been engaged was denied by Mrs.
Nettle Hawley Seymour, a sister of
the railroad magnate.
