HOW FORTUNE WAS AMASSED Multi. Millionaire Starts Life as an Errand Boy Russell Sage, multi-millionaire and nestor of American financiers, was born on August 4, 1816, in Verona, Oneida county, New York, where his parents, Eliza and Prudence Sage, members of a little company of pioneers from Con necticut, had halted while, on their westward march in quest of a home stead. At the age of 12 Russell Sage began his career as errand boy In the grocery store of his brother, Henry, In Troy. ;At the age of 22 he established a wholesale grocery of his own in that place. In 1857 the young merchant had ac cumulated a ■ fortune of about a half million— a great sum for those' days — and began to retire from active busi ness. He had already become Inter ested ■ In railways, his first transaction of this character being a loan to tho La Crossa Railroad comparly, which led to further transactions resulting In his acquiring large Interests In the roads now forming the Chicago, Milwaukee '& St. Paul system, of which he became vice president. Opens Office in Wall Street This determined Mr. Sage to devote his time to business In Wall street, and in 1866 he opened his office In New York. About that time he formed an asso ciation with Jay Oould, which con tinued several years. ■•In ..1867 "he organized the present method of trading In "putß," "calls" and "straddles," in which he dealt later on an extensive scale. When he purchased a seat on the New York stock exchange In 1874 it pro vided that he never appear on the floor of the exchange. Only once, it is said, did Mr. Sage experience a tremendous loss which would have shaken another man, but from which he emerged with confidence unshnkpn. From that memorable day in 1884, when 'the great failure of Grant & Ward was announced, resulting In the loss to Mr. Sage of about $6,000,000, his operations necessitating the possession of a vast amount of ready capital, Mr. Sage always kept his resources well In hand, so that In case of an emergency he who able to control utmost unlimited funds. Interested In Many Railways At the time of his death Mr. Sage was an officer and director in twenty five great railroad and telegraph cor porations, t An incident occurred In Mr. Sage's office at 71 Broadway on December 4, 1891. On that day he was visited by Henry P. Norcross of Boston, a man of unbalanced mind, who demanded an Immediate gift of $1,200,000. When the demand was refused, Norcross dropped a dynamite bomb on the floor. The ex plosion which followed decapitated Norcross, killed one of the clerks and wrecked the entire office. Mr. Sage was only slightly injured by the explo sion. For many years Mr. Sage occupied during the winter an old-fashioned brownstone | mansion at 606 Fifth ave nue, from which he was reluctantly compelled to move 'about four years ago, owing to the . Invasion of com merce, His summers were spent at the Los Angeles Herald. PRICE: r^XTnTh* 1 "! 65 CENTS VETERAN FINANCIER WHO DIED YESTERDAY country place at Lawrence where he died.

FORTUNE EXCEEDS $100,000,000 Deceased's Wealth Mostly in Cash and Bonds Special to The Herald. NEW YORK, July 22.— The fortune of Russell Sage has been variously estimated, but no one knows Its exact proportions, as It Is not so Invested as to be in view of outsiders. It will, un doubtedly, exceed $100,000,000, nnd those best in position to estimate it say it will be found to be chiefly In cash, bonds nnd gilt-edped securities. Russel Sage had no children, and his relatives have never been lett to believe that at his death they would share in the distribution of- his- great- fortune. He had never personally done any notable charities nor contributed to any considerable extent; to educational .or philanthropic purposes, but each year he set nside a large sum which his wife dispensed along those lines. • • It has been reported thnt Sage once said, in a burst of confidence to a close friend, that when he died he would'so dispose of his fortune as to leave an enduring monument to his memory. , ' His will has long been made.

TACOMA, Wash., July 22.—Washing ton's lumber traffic has J Increased so rapidly that the Hill railroads are un able to move loaded cars across the mountains and out of the state as fast as they are assembled from the main and branch Uneß ; radiating from Ta coma.

SUMMONS RUSSIA'S FAITHFUL Imperial Manifesto Issued by the Emperor Millions of Mnjiks Are Asked to Suppress Revolution Street Rioting at Bt. Petersburg Com. mences at Midnight, but Cot- Ililona Are on a Small ' Scale By Associated Press. ST. PETERSBURG, July 22.— An Im perial manifesto, issued tonight, which is regarded oa both a threat' and >' an appeal to the emperor's millions •of mujlka to join In suppressing the revo lution under promise of land, summons the "Faithful Sons of Holy . Russia." Many liberals consider this. a direct indictment of the Black Hundreds. In spite of this excitement' the 'day passed with comparative quiet in the capital, and street rioting only began with the advent of darkness, but the collisions generally were on a small scale. ShK3§3BR At Sedovla crowds with stones had the gendarmes and police on the run,; when a squad of Cossacks dispersed the mob with their whips. ' About midnight " there were rumes of heavier fighting at the Narva gate, where the massacres of the followers of Father Gapon took place . sixteen months ago today. , The troops are said to have fired several volleys, and it Is reported that there were a number of casualties.

' ' " ,-:/; : . The Inference Intended to be drawn is ■ that ' Emperor William •is Emperor Nicholas' evil genius and- false adviser. The trouble with . this story is i that the sovereigns would not be: forced; to resort to such roundabout methods of communication, as direct : • wires are available at Peterhof. Besides, the story Is traceable to sources which usually seek to make Emperor ■William responsible for all of Europe's ills. . The status ' of the council of the em pire seems to be In doubt. Neither the ukase nor the manifesto mentions it, but whether this was by design or over sight has not ' yet been cleared up. As a co-ordinate branch of parliament it must be adjourned or dissolved when the lower house Is prorogued.' but it re mains to be seen whether new elections will be ordered for the upper chamber. The Associated Press learns that the council of the empire is considered ' to be in recess, but that special depart ments of the council composed of ap pointed members will continue sitting.
