President Schurman of Cornell Think

s phi
lanthroplc scheme which the Rocko
feller foundation
bill now pending In
congross proposes to
Incorporate wa
commended by President Jacob G
Schurman In an address before the Cor
nell congress Friday night In sum
mlng up an exhaustive discussion of
the measure President Schurman
I recognize that section No2 of tho
bill which
defines the
object of the
Rockefeller foundation
authorizes and
empowers that foundation
to do any
thing and everything which may pro
mote and advance human clvlllatlon
that Is to say morals nnd religion art
and science manners and social Inter
course and all that concerns the po
litical economic and material well
being of Individuals and communities
This Is a vast Hold for tho exercise of
But Mr Rockefeller has conceited
a vast scheme of philanthropy for the
benefit of his fellow citizens and man
kind Ills character
ability and or
ganizing skill are adequate guarantees
that ho will carry out his scheme
wisely and successfully with Incal
culable benefit and blessing to man
kind It Is In the Interest of tho na
tion that he be given a free hand In
the exercise of his colossal benefi
cence So long as he Is active or his
Influence remains It would be wlso
and safe to give the foundation the
sort of organization he desires Neith
er now nor hereafter does It
seem nec
essary to limit the scope of his benefi
cence which Is coextensive with the
efforts of mankind to attain a higher
Tho only change I would desire to
see In the proposed bill is the total or
partial elimination of the method of
selecting trustees by operation The
organization might well bs left a close
corporation If Mr Rockefeller so de I
sires for a generation But after that
time I am confident that it would Inure
both to the efflciency of the foundation
and to the public welfare to say noth
ing of the satisfaction of the sentiment
of a democracyIf the majority of the
trustees were appointed by the presi
dent of the United States with the
advice and consent of the senate or
selected by some other high abiding
governmental agencies that may fairly
be regarded as representing the peo
ple of the United States whose wel
fare is the primary object of the Im

Novel Method of Constructing
Peace Palace at The Hague
Never Before In Holland Has Super
structure of Such Immense Pro
portions Been Seen Provis
ion Made for Enlarging
The HagueIn speaking of the
progress made on tho peace palace
In course of construction here Mr
Van del Steur the Dutch architect
who has practical charge of tho build
Ing operations in talking of tho novel
methods adopted In its construction
Such a freestanding scaffolding as
this right around a building has never
been seen before In Holland It Is
quite a piece of work In Itself being
60 feet high and costing 10000 but
then It will stand firm for many years
and we intend to let It remain until
the whole outer part of tho palace is
complete which will bo in two years
In that way it will protect the walls
from Injury Two great lift towers
133 feet high arc built Into this scaf i
folding with two mighty cranes each
capable of lifting 6000 pounds Such
great lifting power is absolutely nec
essary since mno for example tho blocks
of Swedish granite for tho balustrade
of tho lower terrace weigh 4000
pounds each though when you see
them in place they do not look so
particularly big The scaffolding Is
built In several tiers and along each
level runs a Decauvlllo railway for
hauling materials We use as much
machinery as possible to lighten tho
labor and not ono draft animal en
ters our precincts the material being
brought close up to tho building
ground by especially mado small rail
way lines from the station on the
HagueSchoveningen line Thence the
materials aro hauled In trucks to the
foot of the lifts and brought to their
destination by means of the cranes
and tiny railroads along the scaffold
ing i Another novelty for Holland Is
Joe cementmixing machine which
can be handled by one man The
foundations are entirely of concrete
and tho floors are reenforced con
crelo below their covering of marble
or wood
Twelve million brick will bo used
on tho walls and about 00500 cubic
feet of Ohernklrchen sandstone 38500 I
cubic feet of white French sandstone
and 15570 cubic feet of Norwegian
granite Four hundred thousand
pounds of Iron will bo required for
Queer Looking Creature Terrifies
Three Anglers at Greenwood Lake
In New Jersey
Montclalr N JTho sea serpent of
tho Atlantic coast resorts will have
to take a back seat for a queer am
phibious creaturo thnt Is reported in
Greenwood lake by Charles Van
Gleson John Willis and George Mc
Cormick all of this town who have
Just returned from a weeks stay at
the lako
Van Glcson bears evidence of a con
flict of some kind for his wrist Is
gashed as with a saw The wound
ho says was inflicted by tho lake mon
ster when It made a desperate effort
to get Into a boat occupied by him
and his companions
The three men wero fishing for bass
In thin lake when they saw the mon
tel Jump out of tho water after a
fish which McCormick had pulled up
Time first sight of the creaturo led the
men to believe that It was a huge
eel but Its second appearance was
more terrifying Tho thing dashed
oso up to tho boat after ono of
rhu captured fish It had a long horn
the roof with 4200 cubic feet of small
granite and 70000 square feet of slate
The great tower will weigh 15000
000 pounds Although the palace In
of such Important dimensions tho
members of tho Carnegie foundation
committee have foreseen that it will
eventually have to be enlarged es
pecially when Americas project of
making tho arbitration court truly per
manent shall have been accepted by
the powers The architect Is confi
dent that any such extension will In
no wise detract from tho beauty of
the building because with M Cordon
nler he has planned the proportions
In view to such an eventuality
The upper part of tho walls In the
halls and stairways Is to be of white
French sandstone alternated with
sculptures nnd marble mosaics All
the doors are to bo of precious woods
Inlaid with Ivory nnd other rich ma
terials In tho assembly rooms and
justice halls the floors wainscoting
and ceilings will bo of oak wood and
tho walls of hewn stone These will
almost disappear under the tapestries
paintings and other mural decorations
In tho basement Is located tho res
taurant closo to the kitchen It Is a

telling how a sharpeyed kuonwlttcil
small boy who followed a clue of list

miles from Its huinu mid two nillca °
from any habitation a lost child for
whom the distracted mother and two
score volunteers had searched for
hours In vain
Only for Willie Smiths cleverness
everybody says Margaret McGnrry
three years old might bo still lost and I
In danger of perishing from exposure j
and hunger For n nllo tho boy traced s
the missing child by marks It had
made on bushes and III an unfrequent
ed path with a switch
She had not been gone long before
she was missed Forthwith tho womon
grow uneasy mad shortly when a still d s ti
wider Inquiry failed to bring any word
of tho child they became downright i
alarmed and a general alarm was
spread Several parties set out In dif
ferent directions some toward Great
Peconlo bay others toward Good
Ground and tho ocean while still oth
ers went up and down along tho stato
road and east to JnmcsporL
One by one tho searching parties re < 4
turned to town empty handed Not t
the slightest definite clue to Margaret f
had been obtained from anyone
Meanwhile Willie Smith who had
been with ono of tho searching parties
started homo by himself across the 1
fields On tho way ho thought of a
lonely path through the woods leading i
to tho desolate scrub oak district In p
tho middle of Long Island Wonder Y
Ing he says If Margaret could havo
wandered In that direction ho cut
across lots to tho path Sure enough
there were small footprints In tho soft
earth A little further along tho foot
prints were lost to sight but Willie j r
noticed in tho path a mark which he
rt a
know with his boyish Instinct had nil
been made by dragging a stick along
For more than a mile Wllllo fol
lowed tho marl in tho path through
a wood and across a stretch of bushy
country until finally ho found tho
child asleep In a clump of tall dry
grass and bushes Her stick lay be
side her her cheeks were stained with
ears and her sobbing had softened
down Into dreamy sighing The boy
sat down and stroked Margarets
