An annual pension of 125,000 for
each future ev-Pres'.dent of tho United
6ttcs Is offered by Andrew Carnegie.
This announcement wan made by the
trustees of the Cnrnegl Corporation of
Kew York at the close of their second
snnuaj meeting In Mr. Carnegie's resi
lience, fifth nvenua and Ninety-first
tret yesterday f.ftcrnoon. The ststc
mnt says.
"Provision has been made through
this corporation fcr it pension for each
futme ex-Prt-MJent .ind his widow un
nuirrud f HTi.UOO per yeir as Ionic as
thi?" remain unprovided for by tho
r.ution, that thy may be able to spend
th latter part of their lives devoting:
their imii,iie knowledge gained of pub
lic affairs to the public good, free from
pecuniary cares.
"Thfe pensions will be promptly of
fere! t.i the ex-Vresl-Unts or their
widows, ib,it no application will be
required from Vicr.i "
All elbt of the trustees of the Car- ',
nejrie f'orporrttlon. founded two years
at:o to take over .Mr. Carnegie's work In
connection with edjeat.oniil nnd other
nrcanl.e.l pnllunihroples, uere present
at the meeting yesterday afternoon. ,
Besides Mr. Carnegie himself anil thel
two oilier life members, llobert Franks,
treasurer, and .lam-s Bertram, setre- !
tary, ni Included the heads of the live
Institutions which thu .rnnmuster has
founded. H.ihu Hoot, president of the
Carnegie Kndovvment for International,
Peace; Henry S. PriteheU, president of
the Carnegie Foundation for the Ad-1
vanccment of Toachlns; H. S. Wood- j
Aard. pre.viilent of the Carnegie Instl
tu'lon of Washington; Charles I. Toy-'
ior. president of the CarnoKle Hero
T ind Commission. I'ittsburK. and Will- j
lam N. Frew, president of the CarnvKiu '
Institute at I'lttsburK. i
Mr. Carne.e il"L.lned throuch his sec- ;
retary Ia5t niirht to have anything '
further to say at present about the fund j
for ex-Presidents, uno of the trustees
explained that It was Mr. CaniPirlu'H in- I
tentlon that President Taft, uiion his
retirement next March, should bo the
tlrst to profit by Its provisions. ( ither
wlse Mrs. Mary Scott Harrison, widow
of former President Harrison, and ex
Presldent Theodore Koosevelt would
have become the only other beneficiaries
under the terms of the endowment, for
Mrs. Cleveland, by her approaching
marrlaRe to Prof. Thomas Jex Preston
of Wells College, would have put herself
beyond Its scope.
It Is believed that the trustees antici
pate the time when the national Gov
trnment will make some provision for
there who have once served as Chief
Executives, and their present action Is
intended to brldgd over the Interval.
It was decided also at yesterday's
meetlim that a statement of the alms of
the Carnegie Corporation should bo
published. According to this statement
th following paragraph from "Gospel
of Wcalih," printed In the Xnrth Amer
(ran Heiteie In 1S8S1, gives Mr. Carne
gie's chart o' life's voyago as then re
vealed by him:
"Men mar die without Incurring; the
pltv of their fellows, still sharers In
irreat business enterprises from which
their capital cannot be or has not been

Wh for public uses, yet tho day is not
fur distant when the man who dies

these the public verdict will then be

Joseph G. Itntiln, self-convlrted
banker, repressing with an effort the,
ent up emotions of two years, told the.
ury In the Supreme Court yesterday,
how Charles H. Hyde, City Chamber-
lain, had forced him to make a loan of
Northern Hank funds to the Carnegie!
Trust Company In August, 1010. j

ternatlve of bolstering up the slinky ;
,r, , .,,,, inonno forewi,
or of losing every penny of the profitable-city
It waa the first step In the case of
District Attorney Whitman to convict
Hyde of the charge of demanding and
receiving a brllie as n public officer, and
standing alone as It did It seemed to
have an effect on the Jury of bankers,
brokers and engineers who succeeded
the gunmen's Jury in the court of Jus
tice Goff.
Kobln gave this direct testimony yes
terday afternoon In less than thirty
seven minutes, hut before the day was
over he had bpgun to shed a little more
light on the subject and on himself under
the cross-examination of Max D. Steuer.
assisted by John B. Stanchfleld and Mr.
Hyde himself. He had admitted he had
been told that the Carnegie Trust Com
pany was tottering on tho eve of a bank
examination 'and at that moment the
Northern Bank had deposits (St 1250,000
In the trust company which had bor
rowed In addition between !12n,O00 and
$130,000,' from me-rmnic UppTdxl.uUfPI"
J3K0.000, which would have been tied up
by the failure of the trust company.
The uuestlon whether this fact mlghf
not have Influenced him aa well as the
notable list of guarantors on the note
wag lost In a storm of objections made
by the District Attorney
Motion May Knit Case.
All this while, In fact throughout the
day, every step taken by the prosecu
tion had as Its shadow the possibility
that a motion made by Mr Stanchfleld
the first thing In the morning might
be repeated and end the ca.se right there.
It was and still Is In abeyance, with
Mr. Whitman n-id Frank Moss under
promlsolon to answer It to-day or later,
nnd the Justice agreeable that It may
b brought up on motion at any time.
The motion Is to dismiss the Indict
ment and end all proceedings against
Hyde because of a vital omission. It Is
alleged. In the Indictment. The mon
Is charged with having received a brlbi
or a gratuity or a reward not author
bed by law as. a public ofllcer. That
fact Lr net forth In th four rntintK of
" -
tho indictment, but, according to Mr.
Stanchfleld. It
is nownere set "Tin
what that bribe, gratuity or reward was.
In Mr. Stanohtleld's language at thn
opening of tho day's session "the de -
fendant, Hyde, docs not know of what
specific act he stands accused; he la
nowhere Informed what he must de
fend himself against. Tho loan of the
Northern Bank to the Carneglo Trust
Is narrated and the alleged participation
of Hyde. In It Is asserted, but It Is no
where shown In tho Indictment that
Hyde, either as City Chamberlain or at
an Individual, benefited. Kxcept for thi
statement ttvit he did benefit, which Is
a conclusion, It Is nr shown how"
When Mr. Stnnrhfleld had finished Mr.
Whitman allowed Mr Moss to get up
and say that ns the question raised was
unexpected the prosecutor was not
ready to reply; he nskod for time, nnd
this was granted, Mr, Whitman did
not apjtear fn the afternoon and was
reported to be looking up the law.
"I will deny this motion." said the
Justice, "but for the present only, and
I give leave to renew It later," When
Mr. Stanchfleld had finished and Jinn
taken his seat the defendant wore a
broad smile, and some of his friends
out In the court room were similarly
Alleices Drnefll to lly dr.
Mr. Whitman's opening addrnss took
about nn hour and If he had not said
how Hyde benefited In tho Indictment
he waa entirely clear in Ills opening
speech. He not only detailed the story
of tho forced loan of Ilobln, but he as
rerted that he would be able to tihovv
that by reason of these favors men like
Hyde's secretary, Joseph V, Smith, had
heon nhlo to obtain 113,500 on notes
from the Carneglo company on barn
notes, thn money of which went to
Hydo himself, and that all of Hyde's
enterprises were similarly benefited,
In order to establish that It was n
system Mr. Whitman declared ho would
try to prove that tlio Northern Bink
Ilobln experience was duplicated In
other financial Institutions nnd for large
amounts. Everything had been dons by
virtue of the power of city money de
posited. Those whu loaned to tho Hyilt
friends received the city deposits. Mr.
Whitman spoko plainly nnd to tho point

Never Bince the beginning of the war
Ii.ih tho outlook been less gloomy than
to-dny. Never have tho official watch
men in their conning towers felt morn
hopeful of working things out to such a
satisfactory issue as will leave Europe
in pence nnd nil the interested parties
model ntcly discontented.
Count von Berchtold, the Austrian
Foreign Minister, who will accompany
his .Majesty to Vienna to-morrow, can
. 1. I.... , . . . .
on 11,1; numrwarti journey contemplate
the future without any of the preoccu
Ifiticns which the situation inspired a
that tho danger of a
now infinitesimal ia
font gaining ground in the chancelleries
of Europe. Servia is aware that the
scope of her patriotic ambition is cir
cumscribed by the lettitirnat-itertii
of (he great Powers. She is also alive
to the fnot that Austria's policy toward
her is actuated not, as alleged, by
enmity but by friendship based on
common interests, united efforts nnd
mtittm! confidence.
Htiisia understands that Austria has
made appreciable sacrifices to rcad
jt!Ht her policy to tho now order of
tilings in southeastern Europo und
Austria re.idily recognizes tho praise
worthy efforts made by tho Czar's
advisers to prevent n breach of inter
national peace,
Italy and l-'rancc, who entertained
thu idea that they would sutler com
mercially by tho customs union which
they fancied Austria was prepariug
to impose on Servia. nro beginning to
realize that compulsion forms no part
of Count von Berchtold's methods,
nor is an obligatory commercial union
included among his political ends.
In like manner Httlgaria lias come to
the conclusion that film had better losa
no time in laying tho foundation for tho
friendship of Rumania, who has de
served so well of nil the Balkan States
Pourparlers to this effect have, begun,
nnd M. DunofT, the special Bulgarian
representative, is expected shortly in
Duchatvst, where he will carry on con
versations. I understand that the Bulgarian Gov
ernment has grown chary in regard to
Bulgarian territory now that tho cam
paign is over and tho fruits of victory
tiro being harvested, but the strip of
territory which would satisfy lltinmnia
is so insignificant ami tho value of tho
friendship which it would purchase is
so weighty that ono can hardly con
ceive thnt Bulgaria will wait for tho
prc.'sure of public opinion to movo
her to discharge, what in the last analy
sis differs little from a debt of honor.
