Carter Harrison The death ot Henrv
George is a lo-s and a sorrow . W e cam
to New York to fight him as un apostate
Democrat, vvj remain to mourn his lovs as a
philoKipher and a gentleman
Cornelius N'. Bliss, Secretary ot the
Treasury I appreciated the ability ot
Air George and had profound regard
for the sincerity of his conviction5
He was indeed an honest man At this
time anl at this distance it would be futile
to predict the effect of his de ith on the
hv.uou in Greater New York-
Linan 11 Gage, Secretar of the Tr ts
urj I did not agree with Mr George s
theories of irv eminent He was, how
ever, a verj able, sincere man of the
nigtiest Integrit It seems to me that
his death will tend to still further com
plicate the political situation in Greater
New York
His death is naturally most mourned in
the ranks of the single taxers anil in or
ganized labor circles J II Ralston ex
presses the views of the single taxers in
the follow ing
The death or Henrj George comes as a
distinct prrsonal Ios to all single taxers
The have learned to admire him asa man
because ot his absolute honest and eour
age and unswerving fidelity tf his con
viotions wherever the might lead Fora
the 1-eginning of their career as single
taxers, lie have admired the beutj of
Mr Gc urge's w litlngb and the impregnable
logic of the roMMons he has taken upon
the fundamental Social and political ques
tiou Single taxers will not believe, how
ever great was Henry George, that his
death v Id retard the progress of his ideas
The wmko of Mr George have produced a
tremendous effect upon students of pullti
cal econom in cverj portion of the globe,
and critical observers of political affairs
ree gnlze that tlie issues formulated bj
Henrj George are becoming the practical
qi estions of the Immediate future The
hundreds ot thousands of adherents to
his political ideas will not falter in their
devotion to the caue of human freedom be
cauKe or the death of their chiertian
The rollowing voice the sentiments of the
laboring clashes
Samuel Gompers, president of the Amer
ican Federation of Labor I am shocked
and pained beyond description at the
news of the death of Henr George.
He was a splendid man, and one of the
Lighcattps of American men, Lrllliant

I en loved aud valued his rcrsonil acquaint

most companionable of men, withojt frills
orfeather He was in ever thing a manlj
man. In his death liter lturc loses a splen
