FRICK, McCREA, GREEN AND OTHERS
PITTSBURG, Dec. 29?Who will ;
succeed A. J| Cassatt as president of
the Pennsylvania system? James lie-1'
Crea, acordlng to best Informed and,
most conservative men in railroading
or out of it. H. C. Frick, according to '
reports circulated widely by persons
who take ilttle cognizance of its mean- j
ing, but reports that were described
by Mr. Frlck as being absurd. Sam- j
ue) Rea, say others, especially somo
eastern railroaders and financiers. j'
Capt. John P. Green has also been men-'
tloned, while -other names that have
been spoken of are George F. Baer, Oscar
G. Murray, Joseph Ramsey ami,
Mr. McCrea is recognized as onej
of the great railroad managers, posslblv
second only to Mr. Cassatt through j
his being In a minor position. He has
the confidence of the directors and |
stockholders, while financiers respect
his word as law in anything pertain-!
Ing to railroading, The selection o(
a successor to Mr. Cassatt will un-j
doubtedly be made In a few days.
Of this there Is no doubt. The
Pennsylvania railroad system will not
"go to sticks" because of the death j
of Mr. Cassatt There are strong
men to step into Cassatt's office and [
handle the presidential duties. When i
Mr. CaRsatt's predecessor, the late
Frank W. Thomson, died, there was
mourning in fear that the' Pennsylva-(
nla would go to pieces. An able man
was found in Mr. Cassatt
On the subject of the succession, a
Philadelphia special telegram to The
Gazette Times says: "From three
men It is said a successor will be choa- i
en for Mr. Cassatt These are James
McCrea, Samuel Rea and John P. |
Green. Those who believe Mr. Rea
will become the president base their
opinion on the fact that he has been
very close to Mr. Cassatt, probably:
tlie closest or the vice presidents, ror
a long time it bss been understood
Mr. Cassatt -wished to have Mr. Rea
succeed him. As for Mr. McCrea, if
is thought that Henry C. Frlck will j
; siipport htm for the place, and this, |
taken In connection with the fact that j
every one connected with the railrobd
1 directorate recognizes his superior!
' ability, makes many incline to the
1 opinion that he win be chosen.
"Mt. Green is mentioned as a possible
successor because he has hut two
years to serve until he win retire uni
der the Pennsylvania railroad age lim:
it This fact is the basis for both the
- belief that he "will get the position and
that he will not get it On one hand
it is argued that after years of splens
did service, the directors will be anxl!
oils to give him the honor of the presI
lilency before his retirement, but on
. the other hand it. Is-pointed out that
1 at this time the Pennsylvania railroad
cannot afford to selct anyone for tern
porary service, hut mnst choose a man
with a Arm band who will assume the
reins now and he young enongh to
hold the position for some years to
"For some time there have been m
mors Tout nt'ury rnun, uiuiocn,
would become the president But it
whk Bald last night by a high official of
the Pennsylvania railroad that there
Is no around for such assertions. It
was pointed out that the Pennsylvania
has usually made It a practive to
choose the president from the active
official list, and that while Mr. Prick
is eminently tilled In most respects to
fill Ihe post, it is not believed that
even ho would desire the position."
Tinder the charter of the Pennsylvania
railroad a new president must
be chosen at once. The meeting of
the directors for this purpose will,
however, be postponed until after the
funeral, which wfll be held on Monday
afternoon. The directors will probably
meet on Tuesday to chooee the
successor to A. .T. Caasatt and In tho
meantime Col. John P. Green, first
vice president, will be acting head ot
the lines east of Pittsburg and James
MeCrea of the lines west

Stilt Marks on Chlaa.
Hunting for stilt marks ou old china
Is often good fun In itself. Almost every
old piece of flatware?1. e., plates,
plutters, Bnucers, etc.-shows three little
rough sjtots more or less clearly
marked 011 both sides, usually on the
margin. These spots were made In the
tiring by the cockspur of stilts, the little
tripods used between the plates In
piling them up in the kiln. The three
points where the cockspur touched the
plnte caused a defect In the glaze. Unfortunately
stilt marks are not as sure
a guarantee of authenticity as some
collectors have supposed, for they are
not only easy to imitate, but they are

The weight of air has often Ween

such vessels become specifically "lighter"
