C. \. in War George Walbridge Pe*rkins, financier, philanthropist and publicist, died yes? terday morning at the Stamford Hall Sanitarium, at Stamford, Conn., whither he had been sent by his physicians a fortnight ago, for rest and recupera? tion. Ho had been much weakened by severe attacks of influenza and pneu? monia while serving with the Y. M. C. A. in France during the war, and their after effects were aggravated by the intense activity of his life after his return to this country. Week before last Mr. Perkins su!' fered a r.ervou3 break-down and was ordered by his physicians to give up all work and go into retirement. On Thursday his condition took a sudden turn for the worse, and at 2:15 o'clock yesterday morning he died from--as professionally stated -"acute inflam? mation of the brain, the result of com? plete nervous exhaustion duo to in? tense and continuous overwork." His wife and children were at his death bed. Funeral services will take place at the Riverdale Presbyterian Church to-morrow afternoon. Funeral To-morrow The Rev. Robert Mackenzie will offl date. The service will be restricted to relatives and intimate friends be? cause of the limited capacity of the church, which can accommodate only about 150. interment will be in the family plot in Woodlawn Cemetery.

The pas aengers will be asKed to join in this token of respect to the memory of the man who did so much to preserve the beauties of the Hudson River. Born in Chicago in 1862. Descended from Jacob Perkins, an English colonist at Boston in 1S31, and the son of George W. Perkins, a ship? ping merchant at Buffalo and a pio? neer in life insurance, Mr. Perkins was born in Chicago January 31, 1862, and received his only academic education in the public schools of that city. At the age of fifteen he entered the em? ployment of the' Chicago office of the New York Life Insurance Company, as an office and errand boy. His salary was $25 a month, and his employment was conditioned on his making no mis? takes and doing faithfully all he was told to do. lie fulfilled those con? ditions, and so was not merely re? tained in that employment, but within n year was promoted to a clerkship at ?100 a month. In 1883 he was transferred to the company's Cleveland office as cashier. Thereafter he was successively a field agent in the Far West, an agency di? rector, an?l an inspector of agencies. In 1892 he came to New York as third vice-president, member and chairman of the finance committee and, in 1903, first vice-president at a salary of $75,000 a year. He retired from that company in 1905. In the House of Morgan Meantime his exceptional abilities as a financier had attracted the atten? tion of J. Pierpont Morgan, who in? vited him, on mo3t flattering terms, Secure aslhe Bedrock of Newark Splendid Investment for $2,500 Is a Ouarantend 6 V? fo First Mortgage on an ar~rtment house on Bast 132nd St., near I'ark Ave., whero rental is $2.640 ?n?l value $3,000. *We have many other similar mortgages.

" ! : to become a member of his hanking : house. Mr. Perkins was perhaps the only man who ever declined such an offer from Mr. Morgan. But after care? ful deliberation he did decline it, he cause he wished to continue and to carry to completion extensive plans which he had formedfor the New York Life Insurance Company. Although thus rebuffed, Mr. Morgan was not offended nor turned from his purpose, but a little later he renewed his invitation on terms which would permit Mr. Perkins to continue his connection with and his work in the insurance company. On those terms Mr. Perkins in 1901 became a partner in the house of .T. P. Morgan & Co. of New York, of Drexel, , Morgan & Co. of Philadelphia, and of Morgan, Harjes & Co. of Paris. In that capacity he soon showed himself i ; one of the prime factors in the finan- ? cial world of America and Europe. He personally negotiated a number , I of large foreign loans, and was fore- ' most in the organization of the United ; States Steel Corporation, the Interna? tional Harvester Company, and the I International Marine Company. He be ! came a director of these three con I corns, and also of the Astor Trust ! j Company, the Bankers' Trust Company, j the Cincinnati, Hamilton & Dayton , 1 Railroad, the Dayton & Union Railroad ; Company, the German-American In j surance Company, the Marquette & ! Bessemer Dock and Navigation Com? pany, the National City Bank of New York, the Northern Pacific Railroad Company, the Northern Securities Com? pany, the Toledo Railway and Ter? minal Company, the P?re Marquette Railway Company, the Chicago, Burl? ington and Quincy Railroad Company. . the Great Central Dock Company, and the New York Trust Company. In Progressive Politics Mr. Perkins retired from the firm of J. P. Morgan & Co., in 1910 in order, ; as he said, to deote himself to other : work of a public and semi- public nature. Conspicuous in this work was his activity in Progressive Republican ? politics. He wrote and spoke much on the subject of industrial justice, of the need of revision of the Federal corpora? tion laws, and of the desirability of giving the affairs of corporations the fullest possible publicity in order to restrain abuses. Mr. Perwins became deely interested in Theodore Roosevelt's political and economic policies and threw himself actively into the Progressive campaign of 1912. He was chairman of the Ex . ecutive Committee of the Progressive i National CommitUe, and by his untir | ing energy and zlea fairly won Colonel : Roosevelt's tribute as "probably the most useful man in the Progressive i party." P<>feat in that campaign did .not diminish his zeal for Progressive ? principles, and with his return with the rest of the Progressives to the Re ! publican party he brought into it his energetic spirit. He was credited with the chief influence in selecting Will II. Hays to be chairman of the National Committee of the reunited party. At the very outbreak of the world ; war Mr. Perkins anticipated the ulti? mata entry of tho United States into ? that struggle, and was an earnest advo I cate of rational preparedness and a sharp critic of the policy of President Wilson. In a speech at Indianapolis in 1915 he declared that the United States was sadly unprepared for war and urged immediate action of the most i vigorous kind. When at last the United States became directly involved in the ' war he was one of the foremost to realize the Importance of the food question. He was appointed by his friend, Mayor Mitche!, th. head of a committee to prevent abnormal in? creases in the prices of foodstuffs, and ho personally purchased vast quanti? fies of foodstuffs and had them shipped 1 into New York to defeat tho efforts of profiteers to raise prices extortion ately. Governor Whitman, in September, 1917, appointed him chairman of the State Food Control Board, but after a bitter and discreditable struggle the "?State Senate refused to confirm him ?This not in the least, however, abate his patriotic ardor and activities and | he continued a powerful and effective I campaign against rising prices. He was the chairman of the War ? '. Work Council of the Y. M. C. A., a member of the executive committee of ; the United War Work Campaign and contributed largely toward collecting : the fund of $.00,000,000 for relief work among the American soldiers in France and Belgium. He spent sev eral months in Europe in connection with that work, and it was while he was thus engaged that he contracted the grave maladies which sapped his , strength and prepared the way for his I final illness. Palisades Park Conspicuous among the Important public works to which Mr. Perkins es? sentially contributed is the great Palisades Park, on the western bank of the Hudson River, in the states of New York und New Jersey. More perhaps than any other one man he is to be credited with the creation of , that unique pleasure ground, and with . tho presenvation of its scenic splen? dors from spoliation. Mr. Perkins gave much of his keen : est interest and deepest thought to ; tho questions of the relations of ; capital and labor, and especially lo I plans for securing to workingmen of ull grades an equitable remuneration | for their toil, in the National Civic Federation he was the foremost advo I cute of systematic ami equitable profit - ' sharing between employers and their employees. Wife and Children i Mr. Perkins was married in 1889 tc : Miss Evelyn Ball, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Flarmri Pall, of Cleveland, Ohio, Two children were born: M?ks Dorothy Perkins, now Mrs. Edward Freeman, and Lieutenant George W. Perkins 3rd, I who was graduated at Princeton in I 1917 and vfc. had an honorable carm in the American Expeditionary Forces.' He had for years a town house at 76 ? Park Avenue, which he sold only a fortnight ago to his neighbor around the corner, John E. Berwin. For many years he made his home chiefly on his extensive estate at Riverda!e-on the-Hudson. His office was at 71 Broadway. His public interests were numerous. He was an active member of no fewer than thirty-five organizations of a non business character, for the promotion of the civic, social, moral or intellect? ual welfare of the public. He was a trustee of Vassar College, a member of the Board of Managers and of the Executive Committee of the New York Botanical Gardens; trustee of the New York Scenic and Historic Preserva- ; ? j. P S'x'i'V'* honorary vice-president of the Park District Protective League; i member of the Museum of Natural History; member of the Metropolitan Museum of Arts; member of the Society of the Lying-in Hospital, and a director and member of the Finance Committee of the Y. M. C. A. He wa3 a member of the American Iron and Steel Institute, the American Federation of Arts, the American Society for the Judicial Settlement of International Disputes, the Pilgrims, the Illinois Society, the Ohio Society, the Union League Club of Chicago, and a large number of the foremost New York clubs, including the Union League, Metropolitan, Army and Navy, Recess, New York Yacht,.India House, Quill, Automobile, Ardsley Country, Westchester Country, Sleepy> Hollow Country and St. Andrew's Golf. Tributes Paid to His High Ideals News of His Death Comes as Surprise and Shock to Business Associates The news of the death of George W. Perkins was both a surprise and a great shock to bankers and industrial leaders in the financial district who ; had been associated with him in his many enterprises both before and ?f- ? ter his retirement as a partner in J. P. j Morgan & Co. It was known that Mr. ' Perkins had suffered a nervous break- , down, but few realized how serious that was. It was only during the hit- ? ter part of April that he attended the last important meeting of the United States Steel Corporation, of which he was a director, and a member of the finance committee. Elbert II. Gary, chairman of the steel corporation, was not at his office when the news of Mr. Perkins's death reached him, but when lie was reached by long-distance telephone he said that he was too shocked and stunned to collect his thoughts to malic a state? ment at that time. James A. Farrell, president of the steel corporation, said: "I am grieved to learn of the death of Mr. Perkins. He was a man of high ideals, construc? tive ability and integrity of purpose, possessed of clear vision and those human and kindly qualities which en? deared him to his associates in the corporation. His love for his country and unfailing patriotism were con? stantly in evidence, and those of us who were associated with him had for him the highest respect and esteem." J. T. Morgan issued a brief state? ment following a meeting of the part? ners in the Morgan firm in which he said: "I am deeply distressed. Mr. Perkins was my friend for more than twenty years." Franklin W. Hopkins, vice-president of the Palisades Park Commission, said: "Tho members of the commis? sion are inexpressibly shocked ?it the sudden death of their president." Tells of Y. ?.I. C. A. Work -Richard W. Lawrence, chairman of the Bronx Republican Committee, said: "It was through the energy and enter? prise of Mr. Perkins that the Bronx Union branch of tho Y. M. C, A. was made possible. He succeeded in rais? ing $100,000 in the Bronx alone, and h< laid the cornerstone of the build? ing." Justice Giegerich, of the Supreme Court, at the opening of court yester? day paid public tribute to Mr. Perkins, saying: "He was a very good, neighbor and was highly beloved. He was a consid? erate man and treated, with respect the views of others, even though they did not accord with his own. Shortly be? fore his retirement from tile firm of J. P. Morgan & Co. Mr. Perkins, in conversation with me. stated that he I?;??! dctermincAi to devote the re? mainder of his life to philanthropic purposes and that he was happy that he had the time and the means to do o. lie was a public-spirited citizen and very much interested in civic mat? ters. He was ready at all times to serve the public in any capacity in j which he felt he could be of service." Guesses in the financial district re? garding the siz" of the fortune left i by Mr. Perkins varied, but the consen? sus was that, it was not greatly in ex? cess of $10,000,000. Although the fact that his benefactions were not greatly advertised, his. friends stated that they had been many and large. Harding Sends Condolences. WASHINGTON, June 18. ?Senator Harding, Republican Presidential nom ? inee, today sent a telegram of condo? lence to Mrs. George YV. Perkins upon the death of her husband. 'Please permit me to send you, in this moment of sorrow, my deep sym ; pathy," the telegram read." "The coun? try has lost a useful citizen and the ; Republican party an outstanding per I sonality." -??-_ Writes Own Ohituary, Dies Jamos J. Gaynor, of Kearny, N.

Representative of Republic in Border Negotiations Refused Reception in Paris MEXICO CITY, June 18.?Alberto J. Pani, Mexican Minister to France, is slated for the Ambassadorship to the United States, "Excelsior" says to-day. I Pani is well known in the United States. In 1915 he gave up the office of first vice-president of the National I Railways of Mexico to come to New York to take charge of the company's office here. Late in the same year he | became president of the company and finally dirctor genera! of all Mexican railways under military control. In the fall of 1916 he was one of three Mexican representatives in the Mexi? can-American negotiations which re? sulted in an agreement on the military i control of the frontier and tho with drawal of Pershing's troops. Subse- , qucntly he became Minister of Finance. ' In January, 1919, Pani represented the Carranza government in the dis? cussions in New York, with represen? tatives of American oil interests, of i confiscatory Mexican legislation. Pani's stay in France was inglorious. He went for two purposes: To be Mexican Minister in Paris and to pre-; vent the indorsement of the Monroe Doctrine at the peace conference. He failed in both. He was never received at the French Foreign Office, although < he waited in Paris fou rmonths. Tne ) Mexican government announced simul taneously his withdrawal and its re? fusal to recognize the Monroe Doc? trine. Co-operative Trade Offiee Is Opened by Krassin in London Bolshevik Agent's Name Conr?ale.]; Capital is Small; Directors Called Traitors to the Cause LONDON, June 18.--The mysterj surrounding the rental by Gregory Krassin, the Bolshevik Minister of Trade and Commerce, of quarters in the modish West End shopping dis? trict was cleared up to-day when it was learned the "All-Russian Coopera? tive Society Ltd" hud been officially [ registered with a capital of ?15,000. Organizers of the new company are said to be M. Krassin, M. Rosovsky ' and M. Nogin. The names of Krassin and Nogin do not appear in the list ! of registered directors, who are M. i Rosovsky, M. Crysin and Mine. V. Polovsev. The objects of the company are "to act as representatives of cooperative organizations carrying on business in Russia and elsewhere and to promote ! and develop the business of general , import and export merchants." Former executives of the London ? headquarters of the cooperative or i ganization characterize the directors of the new company as traitors to the j cooperative movement, saying they have maneuvered into places of ?authority in the cooperative organiza? tion for the purpose of engineering eventual Soviet control of this agency, They maintain the new company con? stitutes a menace to the old organiza? tions which are engaging in remunera : live trade. One explanation offered for the small capitel of the company just or? ganized is the expectation of some 1 confiscatory action on the part of I France. BRUSSELS, June IS.

Tho original charge against the justice, luM.e by H? njamin Schlesinger, Harry Wavier ai .1 Salvatore Minfc, labor union leaders, was that Justice Levy was actively interested in a corpora? tion while occupying his judicial office. it is alleged in the ni w charge that in the three last elections Justice Levy voted from -'107 Las'. Broadway, in the ?lt'n Election District of the 4th As? sembly District. Lee J.

Benjamfn leases the East | Broadway property as tho East River Hospi al, He said he leased the base? ment to Justice Levy as an office and voting residence. In similar cases, the courts have held that a citizen may establish a voting residence away from his actual d? micile, so long as he voted only from the place he registered J'toni and met the necessary require? ments with regard to time of resi? dence. 11?'- Applletc Division yesterday granted Justice Levy permission to ap pi-.'i! to the Court of Appeals from the decision of the Appellate Division, which rejected the argument of the accused justice that it did not have ' jurisdicti?>n in his case. \\ ill of Frank Moss Is Filed The will o?

Among the articles stolen were a rope bracelet of button pearls and diamonds, a brooch set with turquoises and dia? monds, a diamond fleur-de-lis pin, a solitaire diamond ring, a pair of pansy earrings and a small watch of gold and enamel. .Mr. Hare ?s a law partner of Ciar- : ence ,T. Shearn and is a member of numerous clubs. His wife is the daughter of the late John E. Parsons, an organizer of the American Sugar Refining Company. Mr. Haro refused yesterday to discuss the thoft, saying that the police had told him not to. "The police are doing excellent, in? telligent work on the case," he said ? "and I still hope to recover my property." Captain John Duane, in charge of i defectivos at the East Sixty-seventh ' Street Police Station, refused last night to give any definite estimate of the amount of jewelry stolen. "Was it worth the $100,000 that some reports gave as its value?" ho was asked. "Not one-twentieth of that," the captain responded, bu would give n ? further details except to sav that there was no evidence that it had been an outside job. The house, apparently, was not brok.n into. Six Insane Convicts Flee Jersey Hospital Two Captured After Sawing Bars of Window at Tren? ton Institution TRENTON, N.

Zionism in Palestine Causes Worry in Home Vatican Will Consider intoler? able Any Subjugation by Jews of Other Races ROME, June 18. Anxiety regarding the question of Zionism is felt in Vat? ican circles, according to reports here. "The Osservatore Romano," organ o( the Holy See. says the Vatican is able to accept without too great apprehen? sion the re?stablishment of a Hebrew "hearth and home" in Palestine, but ; would ' consider intolerable any sub ' jugation by the Jews of other races and religions already established there. The Holy See. the newspaper says. ' would exert all its influence against such a course. Sir Herbert Samuel, British High Commissioner for Palestine, will arrive here shortly, and hope is expressed that ho will reach an understanding on the question with the Vatican. Details for the government of Pales tine have been worked out into a def? inite program by the British Govern? ment and the Zionists, according to a London dispatch to the Jewish Corre? spondence Bureau in Xew York, dated ' June 18. "The Zionists," says the message, "will control immigration and will cen? tralize land purchase by acquiring state lands. All inhabitants will have com? plete internal, cultural and judicial autonomy. "The Hedjaz Railway and the Litany River will form the ' Palestine boun darits. "The Zionists plan to raise a big na? tional loan with a budget of ?300,000 for next year. Immigration will begin in the autumn at the rate of 3,000 im? migrants a month. This number will be increased gradually. "The Jewish Assembly in Palestine will be established as the supreme leg? islative Jewish body." Burnquist Is Commended Typographical Error Gave Erro? neous interpretation to Action In un article which appeared in The Tribune of June 17, regarding dis tuibancea in Duluth, Minn., which fol? lowed the lynching of three negroes, suspected of being concerned in an attack on a white girl, the statement was made that, the National Associa? tion for the Advancement of Colored People had telegraphed Governor Burnquist of Minnesota its condemna? tion of his action in sending state 1 troops to Duluth. The word "condemnation" should | have been commendation. Tha mis? take was duo to a typographical error. Courthouse To Cost Over $7,000,000 Bids for the Superstructure Alone Show Estimate on Work Far Too Low: Total is 86,712,530 $3,200,000 for Granite Craig Says 810,000.000 Will Be Spent Before the Building Is Finished If the Board of Estimate keeps with? in the original estimate of $7,000,000 as :iv cost of the new county courthouse, the building will be without a roof and interior finish. Bids for the super construction work opened yesterday by the board showed that the total of the lowest biiis amounted to $6,712,530. Biiis for the roof and interior fixtures are still to be asked. The bids were tabulated and referred to the Committee on Finance and. Budget. An effort will be made to keep down the cost. Since the Board of Es? timate appropriated the $7,000.000 on '.he original estimate, the cost of labor and materials has increased consid? erably. Comptroller Craig declared yesterday that he beli? ved that the new building would be completed within an expenditure of $10,000,000. Members of tho board said that the bid of $3,200,000 for the granite work was too high, and probably would have to be readvertised. The suggestion was made that possibly an estimate would be sought for the use of lime? stone instead of granite, which would mean a saving o? about $2,000,000. The opinion was expressed that limestone would serve the purpose as well as granite, as it hardened from age and weather conditions. Three bids were received for steel frame construction. The lowest was that of the Bethlehem ? Steel Bridge Corporation, of Bethlehem, l'a., at ? 1 , 256,000, and the highest was that of the McClint ?ck Marshall Company, at $1,390,560, ?lodgers & Haggerty wer" the ? nly bidders for foundations, water-proofing, etc.. at $1,100,500 -n, Rogers Granite Corporation was th! only bidder for the granite work T'ni company also was the only bidder ?l the brickwork, coal shutes. chirirev? terra cotta wall facing and marble ?* y"\imy There were four bids forth plumbing work, the lowest beinc liw 030, made by the Wells & Newton ?" pany. Inc. The highest was tha* Tf the John J. McGrath Plumbing 'an* Heating Company for $205.000 Following a til: between Comptroller Craig and Major F. H. La Guardia President of the Board of Al?eme*' the Board reconsidered the motior of two weeks ago when it refused to past a resolution allowing $7,825 'o I !??? F. Pilcher, State Architect, as con.*-5 ing architect of the new courthouse The matter was finally pased over the objections of the Aldcrmanic Presiden* who declared: "If we keep on voting appropri?t or.? for such matters as this the courtho- u will cost a hundred million dollars ar.d make the Tweed building look lil piker." The Comptroller said that the re tention of Mr. Pilcher was made bv the Board of Estim?t and authorized by contract ami that the whole ques? tion was whether the Board wished to live up to its contract. The Board accept ?? the o-Ter of Nathan Straus to turn over to the city the milk pasteuring laboratory main tained by him, with all ita equipment, to be used for the benefit dren of New York, conditioned appropriation of a sufficient Bum ? . carry on ami expand the work. It ?j estimated that $36,691 will be needed to carry on the work to December 3] The Finance Commit! ?? of the ' of Aldermen has an application for spe cial revenue bomls for the purpose be? t?re it. -o--_ Girl Strangle?!
