NEW NEWS OF YESTERDAY
Old Vandcrbilt Rule That Is Being
Commodore's Advloe Was Against tho
Investment of Money In Real
Estate Because Sale May
By E. J. EDWARD8.
"After Commodore Vanderbilt lind
become very prominent as a railroad
organizer and a financier, he, of
course, was constantly sought after
for advice and counsel respecting In
vestments by those who felt on suffl
cent terms of friendship with him,"
said Senator Chauncey M. Dopew,
whose business connections with tlie
Vanderbilt interests date hack to the
days of the commodore. "But, no mat
ter how Btrongly he was importune.!,
the commodore never gave any spe
cific advice as to the Investment ol
sums of money. He was never willing
to take that responsibility. I think
he felt that If he recommended cer
tain Investments nud they turned out
badly ho would be criticized. Further
more, he made It an Inflexible rule not
even by so much as a hint to advise
any one to buy securities of the rail
road properties which he controlled.
I mean by that he was unwilling to
infiuenco any of his friends In
such a manner as would lead them to
Invest their money In Vanderbilt
stocks or bonds. If they chose to do
that of their own free will and acci rd
In tho open market and without any
urging on his part, that was another
"Some of the appeals that were
made to the commodore for financial
counsel were comical and greatly
amused him. It was in reply to one
such appeal that he made the epi
grammatic answer which has passed
Into tradition: 'The first thousand dol
lars is the hardest to get.' And It was
another appeal which brought from
him the terse statement that it is
( asier to make a fortune than it is to
keep one after it has been made.
"There was one persistent frlond,
and a good one, too, who was con
stantly asking tho commodore for gen
eral advice respecting the In vestment
of money. Even that the commodore
did not like much to giv.; but at in >t
he said to the tempter: I will give
you the best advice that I can If you
will call upon me in the course of a
day or two, and I hope you will heed
it after I have given It to you.'
"Of course, the man wan greatly
|)l< ased to think that he had at last
broken down the commodore's reserve
?that he was finally to be taken into
the confidence of an expert in finan
cial Investment. You may be BUre he
was In the seventh heaven 01" delight
during the Interim, and with shining
expectancy he appeared before the
commodore at the appointed time.
" You want to know my advice
about investing money, do you?' the
commodore drawled. 'Well, sonny, I
will give It to you In a few words, and
1 hope you will heed It. In the first
plac, never buy anything that can't
sell right off and with a fa!r chance
of selling at a profit. And In tho sec
ond place, never invest your money in
real estate, because you can't tell
whether you can sell right off or not.
That's the best advice I can give you,
and I wonder If you'll follow It?"
"It was advice that tho commodore's
sons and his grandsons followed re
ligiously," continued Senator Depew.
"Indeed, the Vanderbilt family, up to
and including the third generation,
never bought real r stato for Invest
ment." And the senator might have
added that today this Vanderbilt rule
is being strikingly broken In Now
York by Alfred, of the fourth /.em ra
