- Médical Science Could Do
Berlin,—Hugo Stlnnea, the most
powerful figure In the Industrial life
of Germany, died Thursday, April 10.
There Ijad been no hope of his re
covery for many hours, and the fore
most medical skill could do nothing
agiinst the ravages of disease. Three
major operations had been performed,
the first about four weeks ago for gall
stones, and it was owing to the Im
possibility of keeping the patient quiet,
according to the surgeons, that com
' T plications arose, necessitating further
operations, the last one Sunday. It
was also reported that pneumonia de

The far-reaching business enter
prises of the man, his great Influence
among political leaders and bis eccen
trlcftles had. since the war, taken
strong hold on the German people, and
bis death, though expected, has caused
anxious speculation as to who ma<
aylse to take his place.
Hugo Stlnnes was spoken of In con
ttpental Europe as the German wh(
owned everything In sight, and fron
the peculiar pleasure he found in con
flding the size of hts fortune to al'
who would listen, the details of hl»
vast Industrial enterprises and th«
extent of his mining, shipping and
newspaper holdings were never lefi
very much In doubt.
The industrial prince of Germany
cared nothing for luxury, and had m
personal extravagances. W« . owned
several motor cars, but usually walked
or rode In a trolley car. If his pres
ence were required at one of thi
mines, he might be seen plodding aloni
the street with a group of blackene«
miners, or else clinging to a strap It
a street car surrounded by his work
era, who treated him as one of thel:
number.
His apartments were modest, al
though he owned the hotel In which h<
lived. His country place outside Ber
Hn was a simple cottage with a llttb
garden.
