WASPEACEFUL Remains Now Rest in Geni2- tery Near Arden. FINANCIERS AT THE FUNERAL While the Exact Cause of the Railway Magnate’s Death May Never Ee Known, Professor Struempeil, Whcr Harrlman Consulted in Vienna, Sayi He Diagnosed the Complaint as Car, cer—Sister Declares There Was Nc Operation—Harriman’s Vast Wealth The remains of E. H. Harriman, tin railway magnate, now rest in the lit* tie country cemetery at St. John’s church, near Arden, N. Y., the lat€ home of the deceased. The funeral ceremonies were simple, but were at tended by many financiers of note and friends of the family. For five minutes during the progress of the funeral procession not a wheel was turned on any part of the 15,00( miles of the Union and Southern Pa cific systems. The last time such h mark of respect was shown by the tranportation systems of the country was on the occasion of the funeral ol President McKinley. It is the consensus of opinion amonq leaders in the stock market that the suppression of the news of the deatli of E. H. Harriman until after the close of trading on the previous afternoon had prevented all sensational varia tions in the stock lists and was respon sible for the fact that Harriman hold ings felt only a slight decline. Mr Harriman died at 1:30 and the news was not given out until 3:35. Cause of Death Kept Secret. There was much speculation as tc the cause of Mr. Harriman’s death. The rumor was current and purport ed to come from an authoritative source that the railroad king was a victim of cancer of the stomach. Many said, however, “it was simply the end of a worn-out man.” The only information as to the causes that produced death was a tele phone statement of Dr. Lyle. “Mr. Harriman’s death was due tc heart exhaustion, superinduced by oth er physical complications,” it said. A dispatch from Vienna says that Professor Adolf Struempeil, the Vien , ; o specialist, whom the late E. H i :\rriman went to Europe to consult iioav admits that when he saw Mr. Har riman in July he diagnosed his com plaint as cancer. Harriman died peacefully and to the end his brilliant mind retained its in tegrity. After a relapse on Sunday h< sank slowly and soon after the noor hour Thursday there came a relapse which marked the approach of the end His wife, his two daughters, the Misses Mary and Carol, and his sons, Waltei and Roland, who have been constantly with him, assembled at the bedside and a carriage was hastily dispatcher for Mrs. Simons, whose home is here in Arden, three miles from the Towei Hill mansion. Mr. and Mrs. Robert L. Gerry alsc were present. Mrs. Gerry is Har riman’s daughter. Gerry said the cause of Harriman’s death probably will never be known. New York Gets News First. With the secrecy that has been main tained at the Harriman residence un broken to the very end, news of Harri man’s death was conveyed to New York before it came to Arden and the valley below. Then by way of New York, the report that death had arrived at the great estate on Tow r er Hil: spread quickly and confirmation was sought at the residence by telephone A voice on the hill replied: “Yes that is correct. Mr. Harriman died ai 3:35 p. m.” The understanding is that them was no operation. Four persons are authority for this belief. They ar< : Mrs. Simons, his sister; Charles T Ford, superintendent of the Harrimar estate; William A. McClellan, superiu tendent of the Arden farms, and Thomas B. Price, Harriman’s persona secretary in the Union Pacific offices. All four made such a declaration aftei Harriman’s death. Mrs. Simons discussed his deatt with more freedom than any one else but even she professed not to know the exact nature of her brother’s ail ment. Deny There Was an Operation. She said emphatically mat there hat been no operation, then became sc overcome by her feelings that she beg ged to be excused and said she could not describe the scenes at the houst during the last hours. Her husband Charles D. Simons, said he had not ar rived at Arden in time to see Harrimar before he died. Recent estimates of Harriman’s per sonal wealth have varied all the waj from $50,000,000 to $100,000,000. He was, of course, a large holder of securl ties of the various corporations with which he was identified, Including ir addition to the Union Pacific and the Southern Pacific systems, over a score of smaller or tributary properties, not only in this country but in Mexico as well. Report credited him with large personal holdings in the Atchison, To peka and Santa Pe road, Baltimore anc Ohio, Delaware and Hudson, Erie, Illi nois Central, New York Central, and Pacific Mail Steamship company. His holdings of Brooklyn Rapid Transit stock and bonds were very large a few years ago and these have probably been increased in late years. He wr* reported to have been the largest indi vidual stockholder in the Wells-Fargo Express company. HARRIMAN SEAT TO LOVETT Made Chairman Executive Committee by U. P. Board.

AUTOPSY IN SUTTON CASE Mother’s Lawyer Says Shot Was Fired Five Feet From Marine Officer. When the body of Lieut. Sutton. Jr,, the young marine officer who met his death about two years ago at An napolis, was exhumed at Arlington cemetery an autopsy performed by surgeons representing the navy depart ment and young Sutton’s mother, dis closed the fact that no bones were broken, although a contusion wa? found over the right eye. It had been Mrs. Sutton’s contention that her son’s arm had been broken in the fight which preceded his death. Attorney Van Dyke, associate eoun sel for Mrs. Sutton, said that he was convinced that the shot had been fired at least five feet from the officer’s head and that the wound showed conclu sively that it was a physical impossi bility for Sutton to have fired the shot.

WEEKLY REVIEW OF TRADE Dun's Says Industrial Outlook Is a- Brilliant as Ever. R. G. Dun & Co.’s Weekly Review of Trade says: The price situation in leading depart ments of trade is proving a factor of overshadowing and in some directions causes marked conser vatism in purchases, but the demand to replenish stocks, which will grow more urgent as tie need becomes greater, is expected ta soon start an unusually active buying movement. Industrially the outlook is as bril liant as ever, particularly in the funda mental iron and steel trade, in which prosperity cannot exi#t, except that the crops promise abundantly, and the other productive powers of the country are profitably employed. In the New England the cotton mills continue active, although the primary market is for the moment quiet. CHILDREN PERISH IN FLAMES Three of Family of Fifteen Victims of Gasoline Explosion.

Turtles lay their eggs in the sand and let the sun hatch them out They do not lay them all in one place prob ably lHcause they think it safer to scatter them.

Certain it is that she has never been discovered going near these egg babies again, aud when they hatch at last the tiny soft backed creatures at once begin crawling arouud in search of flies and other food as independent ly as if there were no such thing as a mother in the world. A little girl who found one of these odd obloug turtle eggs on a sandy river bank in Louisi ana took it home aud put it in a teacup on the table for safe keeping. A few hours later a slight noise was noticed in that direction, and on looking in the cup again sue found a baby turtle, full hedged, but tiny, scrambling about among the bits of its broken eggshell cradle. Ravens and the Hapsburgs. Henri de Weiddel tells the story of the late Empress Elizabeth and the raveus which Maurus Jokel gave in an article at the time of her majesty’s tragic death. Early in her life Eliza beth wrote some verses in Hungarian on the subject of the raven, the bird of ill omen, which plays a great part in the history of the Hapsburgs. Ac cording to the imperial poetess, a flight of ravens was hovering over Ol mutz when Francis Joseph received from his uncle’s hands the crown which was destined to inflict upon him such miseries. A raven followed Max imilian and Charlotte on their last walk before their departure for Mex ico, and when Maria Christina was starting to receive the crown of Spain, which was one day to be so grievous a burden, a raven flew over the horses’ heads and accompanied the carriage to the railway station. These incidents were the subject of the poem.—West minster Gazette. “Now. look here. Algernon,” said a parent to his sou sternly, “when I was your age I was at the head of my class.” “Ah.” responded the lad, “perhaps teachers were easier to fool then than they are now!” Severe. “I wish 1 had a fortune, I’d never paint another picture!” declared an artist to a brother of the brush. “Well, there are lots of people who would give you one on that condition!” The Similarity.
