A cablegram has been received in this city announcing the death In Ems, Ger many, of Meyer Cahn of New York city, father-in-law of Isadore Freed man, of Mendel & FreedmAn. Mr. Cahn had been abroad since May. Mayer Kahn was one ' of the most prominent real estate operators in the city of New York. He died of an inter nal hemorrhage. Mr. Kahn was born in Germany about fifty-five years ago, and came to the United States to make his fortune, possessed of a fair common school education, and with the Inten tion of going into woollen manufactur ing, being himself a weaver. He first settled In Philadelphia, where he soon demonstrated his capacity for work and business, and having accumulated a small sum of money, and believing that New York was a proper field for his energy, he moved to that city. He very soon was struck by the oppor tunities which he saw in profitable real . siate i p. rations, and in the course of a very short time he had made himsolf generally known to ail real estate men in the city of New York as one of the most clear-headed, conservative, and prudent of all the operators that have ever dealt upon this market. Mr. Kahn was notable for his extreme pru dence and sagacity, never dealing be yond his means, with always sufficient eserve to protect himself and ready to take a fair profit when he saw it. He was a man who under the circum stances manifetsed a very large spirit of liberality and confidence in those whom he knew and thought deserving of his trust. In his operations, which Involved millions of dollars, he was of ten willing to take the words of others where many would have insisted upon the most strictly-constructed written agreements. He was married in early life to a daughter of Rabbi Loeb of this city, and lived a most domestic and apparently happy life, relying greatly upon the counsel of his wife, who was with him at the time of his death. He leaves three married daughters and one son. His remains are to be embalmed and brought to New York for inter ment. His will has not .yet been opened. Mr. Kahn, although occasionally operating in unimproved property, was a ' geat believer in Buying property which would pay its way, and espe cially property of the highest charac ter, such as Fifth avenue and Broad way property. Within a very short period before his death, he had bought and sold some of the most attractive property, notably the property on the southwest corner of Seventeenth street and Broadway, the Everett House, which belongs to his estate, the prop erty adjoining Grace church, the prop erty on the corner of Broadway and Duane street, the property opposite Forty-second street reservoir, etc., etc. Mr. Kahn's reputation as a shrewd and successful investor enabled him often to make a quick sale, because other operators had so much confidence In his judgment that they felt certain that what he bought could be easily sold. He seemed to operate Prenerally with very great rapidity, but those who know him believe that he rarely made a .purchase without having thoroughly scrutinized every feature relating to It. His presence will be missed by many business men, accustomed to ask his advice, which was always given in a most unostentatious and pleasant man ner. ' ' 1 ' Jury ComuilMslon, r .

The follow. ing was received this morning by W. D. Haldeman, president of the Courier Journal company: "Geneva, Switzerland, July 13. An other ticket our only hope. No com promise with dishonor. Stand firm. "HENRY. WATTERSON." BRYAN AND- SKWAIL COSWEH. They Considered the New York Notifica tion Proposul. Chicago, July 13. Mr. Sewall has not yet decided whether he -will Join Mr. Bryan in the speechmaking feature of the campaign. He says he can build ships better than make speeches. He added: "Whether or not I shall take an active part in the campaign will be settled by the executive committee. As Senator Jones will take two or three days to select this committee I am not able to say whether I shall 'be making speeches next month. We may make a fight in Maine in the state campaign. The election will be held there In Sep tember, and that will give us an op portunity of testing Maine sentiment. Free sliver ' sentiment is growing In Maine, and now is very strong. We have a good fighting chance there.' I have no doubt that the national head quarters will be located in Chicago. This in my opinion, and does not come through any action of the committee or conference with it. The west will figure so largely in the campaign that it seems to many that the contest should be directed from thijs point." Mr. Sewall found out yesterday that to be a candidate for vice president is not conducive to rest and retirement. Sunday was his receiving day, and call ers overran his time and his room at the Palmer house whenever he was there. Yesterday morning he found time to meet in a room with Mr. Bryan and Senator Jones, chairman of the national committee. The door was locked for a consultation. The three men talked over the proposition , to launch the campaign at New York by having the candidates publicly notified there of their choice as the party nomi nees. Mr. Sewall, Ersklne M. Phelps and a few other friends went to the Audi torium Annex for dinner. Later in the afternoon the candidate for vice presi dent had a1 few minutes to himself in his room to look at his pictures in the newspapers and read what was saia about him. To-dav he held a few more confer ences with various committees and to morrow will start for his home. UEi.niFOH causing a disaster. Responsibility for the Excursion Train Wreck Near Chicago.
