tier-.! (.rentl).
Although he may never have realized
It, the lato .1. I'lerpimt Morgan was
responsible Ind'.rectlv nntl probably
largely for the unprecedented growth
of Columbta Fan rslty In the last
twenty years.
In a letter to the PndimMt Alumni
AV:u this week, .John H Pine, who for
thirty years has been clerk of Colum
bia's board of trustees, of which Mr,
Morgan was a member from 100H to tho
time of his death, tells of an Incident
thnt happened In the days when Poluin
hla was still on Its old site In Forty
ninth street and was contemplating
moving uptown.
This is the way Mr. Pine relates the
etory:
"Mr. Morgan once rendered a service
to Columbia whit h has never been re
corded and which perhaps never will
he unless oit publish this letter, but
T think it entitles him to be considered
one of our ereat benefactors When
the trustees had about decided that the
college must be moed and were con
sidering the present site then known
Its Blonmingilale, but wire feeling
rather appalled by the magnitude of the
undertaking and the expense which It
Involved, one of the hoard, without
mentioning nnv particular site, nslteii
Mr. Vorgan what the college should
do
"'Do something big,' lie replied 'Don't
May hurled In a corner. Yhv don't
oti buy tho hospital land there ,n
TlloniTiIngdale, where you'll have plenty
of room?"
"The trustee replied that it would
cost too much. To which Mr. Morgan
retorted, 'Nonsense; If you do some
thing hlg enough everybody will help
yon: I'll help you.' '
"Piihseiiuentlv he did help u by con
tributing SlOn.OOO for the pun base of
the rite, but Ills adue was worth even
more thnn his money."

He-
Jo.vph A. Kheriilnn. prefldent of the
Independent Ice Dealer AsHncmtion,
brought two young men Into tin- city
Hall police Mntltm yesterday nfternoou
and aslteil thnt they locked up. He hald
they had been following him nnd had
la en unsigned to keep him umler stir-
veiiiance hv certain perHona In the
Knickerbocker len Company, whom he
of attcmntlng to bribe him.
The two were not put In cells.
This Is the story ns told by Sheridan
In the. pollco Hhitlon: He hays that for
. .. t...i
a mi'titn or morn no muu i" u h.-mun
lettern from the Knickerbocker ut-kltiR
him to desert tho Indcpendenta and
enmo over to tho hlg con.iviny. He had
then realised that ho was being bribed
and t'mk tho money as evidence.
nn Friday. Sheridan savs, he went n
Mr Whitman and gave him the money.
He did this, howfver. only after instruc
tions from a rcproentntlve nf Mr
Whitman's oiiico who came around to
see him on Wednesday night and told
htm th.it It would bo best.
Mr. Sheridan wonders how the Dis
trict Attorney happetiMl to hear about
the 1,000 and says that ho now sus
pects that It may have been what ho
calls a "plant" on the part of the ice
company. At any rate ho s-ty no
hasn't he-ard that he Is to he attested or
that there Is any action against him.
Yesterday morning the Independent
Ire dealer says that he left his home tit
Ilighth avenue and as he went out
he noticed tho two young men he later
escorted to the pollcu station. They
followed him on tho subway, he says,
and to the olllce of his lawyer, James
V. Osborne, with whom he wanted to
consult about that ll.UOO.
When he got to Mr. bot tie's olllcn
Sheridan says that he was advised to
go out and smash the two.
Mr. Sheridan weighs l'2.r. pounds. Hoth
the men he accuses of following him nre
slight. He walked around the Astor
House for a while and according to his
story they dogged his footsteps up and
down stairs and around corridors until
finally he turned on them and lugged
tln-m over to tho City Hall station,
Thrrn the two said they were Hums
detectives and that they thought Mr
Whitman wanted to have Sheridan fol
lowed, Sheridan accused them of being
"hirelings of tho ice trust." Tho lieu
tenant said that he could not hold them
on Sheridan's charge.
Tho Hums agency said they never

many of whom ate prominent members

Iieptesentative Samuel 1.. Towers, the

seemed to meet the approval of most of
those present, judging from the applause
which greeted the proposition,
finv. Dudley and Mr. Hutlcr were at
tho dinner and they apparently appre

conferred on them.
Gov. lladley made a patriotic address
which was somewhat similar to other
tet speeches ho has delivered here. De
got u big round of applause, and so did
Uiiller, who followed lilm. In his speech
Mr. Dudley made no reference to har
