HARRIMAN IS DEAD Victor In Financial Battles Loses to Grim Reaper. HIND REMAINED CLEAR TO LAST Secrecy Preserved Until Stock Mar ket Closed Time Misstated Whole Family Present. . Arden, Sept 10. Edward H. Harri man, the greatest organizer of rail roads the world has ever known, met the only lasting defeat of bis active life at the hands of death. Secluded in bis magnificent home on Tower Hill, he succumbed to an intestinal disorder yesterday after a fight against disease that will rank for sheer grit with his remarkable struggles in the financial world. The exact time of his death is known only in that limited circle of relatives and associates who had shielded Mr. Harriman from all outside annoyance during bis last illness. The time was given out as 3 :35 p. m., but Mrs. Mary Simon da, sister of the dead man, said last night that Mr.JHarriman died at 1 :30 p. ni. Whether this apparent discrepancy has any bearing on the current belief that every effort was made to lessen the influence of the financier's death on the New York stock market is problematical. But it is significant that the time of his death, as officially announced, was just 35 minutes after trading had ceased on the New York exchange. Mr. Harriman died peacefully and to the end his brilliant mind retained its clearness. After a relapse on Sun day be sank slowly and soon after noon yesterday there came a relapse that marked the approach of the end. His wife, two daughters and two sons, who have been constantly with him, assem- bled at the bedside and a carriage was hastily dispatched for Mrs. Simonda, whose home is three miles from the Tower Hill home. Mrs. Simonda en tered the great silent home in time to be present at her brother's death. She joined the wife and children, who, with Dr. W. G. Lyle, of New York, and Orlando Harriman, a brother, and the nurses, formed a group at the bed side. Mr. Harriman will be placed at rest in the family plot at the little graveyard behind St. John's Episcopal church at Arden. He will rest beside his eldest son, Edward H. Harriman, Jr., who died 22 years ago, soon after the family first came to Arden. The services will be held at 3 :30 o'clock Sunday afternoon, and, it is under stood, will be strictly private. Edward Henry Harriman will go down in history as one of the most spectacular financial geniuses, most aanng stocK speculators and greatest ranroaa magnates or bis time. He was born at Hemnatead. L I.. Fahm- ary 25, 1848, the son of Rev. Orlando narriman, jr., rector or an Episcopal church in that town. fnnnripH in 17(19 The early life of the future man of minions was one of great poverty. His father was a cultured but poor man, his mother came from an nIH ariatn. cratic, but equally impecunious family oi rxew Brunswick, N. J. Edward H. Harriman received his early education at the district school and supplemented it bv a two course in a boys' school under church auspices, where the sons of clercrvmpn paid practically nothing for their edu cation. Edward Henry Harriman began his career as clerk in a broker's office on Wall street. He showed no unusual ability and for many years gave no promise oi ms later brilliant develop ment. Socially he was well liked and inose woo Knew bim at that time des cribed him as a sociable young man alwaVS full of fun. Ha bu nnM however, for a mind of his own.

Hite was a pioneer in the California gold fields and married an Indian woman, from whom he afterwards separated, making an allowance for her maintenance. She was not provided for in his will and the contest followed at his death. The suit was compromised for $100,000. Suffering Follows Floods. Monterey, Mexico, Sept 10. Be lieving that the people in the outlying districts are facing starvation and death as a result of the raging waters, several expeditions are being formed here today to go to their relief.

Young Harriman married early in life and married very well. His wife was Miss Mary Averell, of Rochester, N. Y., whose father was a capitalist and a successful railroad man. For a number of years the broker firm of E. H. Harriman & Co. did a thriving business on Wall street, spec ulating with its own funds and execut ing commissions for the Vanderbilts and other wealthy capitalist clients. It was not until 1883 that E. H. Harri man came actively into the railroad field. At that time he had become known as a capitalist, one of the few who had gathered together a great for tune in the ten trouble years between 1870 and 1880. He was credited with having in his strong box a fair list of stocks he bad picked up at extremely low prices during the various panics. Along in 1883 he was elected a di rector of the Illinois Central railroad. Whether Mr. Harriman entered the railroad field in accordance with an al ready matured plan of his or whether his accidental acquaintance with rail road matters suggested to him the enormous possibilities of acquiring the control of large railroad systems, is not definitely known. At all events, Mr. Harriman 8 entry into the direct orate of the Illinois Central railroad marked the beginning of his career as a manipulator of railrorad stocks and reorganizer of raiload systems which, in the course of 10 or 15 years made him one of the greatest railroad kings ever known in the United States and placed him in control of more than 54, 000 miles of water transportation lines and of railroad lines of an estimated length of 27,000 miles. The railroads included in the Harri man system were of sufficient mileage to reach more than two and one-half times around the globe. They com prised the following: Union Pacific, Southern Pacific, Ore gon Short Line, Oregon Railroad & Navigation company, Illinois Central, Georgia Central, Baltimore & Ohio, Delaware & Hudson, Erie, New York Central, Pere Marquette, San Pedro, Lcs Angeles & Salt Lake, St. Joseph & brand Island, St. Paul & Northwestern Harriman was in addition the head of four steamship companies, one of which operates steamers across the Pa cific. He was also in the directorate of the Wells Fargo Express company, the Western Union Telegraph company, the Colorado Fuel & Iron, The Guaran tee Trust, and the Equitable companies or New York, the National City bank, and dl other corporations.

All statements from either siae tending to throw light on the dis puted points are printed in full, but most of the papers either refrain from making editorial comment or con6ne themselves to a few semi-humorous re marks.

Commander Cagni, who was with the Duke of Abruzzi on his Polar expedition, said todav "Thn Peary would reach the Pole one rinv T never aouoted, nor bave I doubts as to the sincerity of Dr. Cook.

OREGON STATE ITEMS OF INTEREST FARM SELLS FOR $106,500. Ashland Tract, Cultivated Since 1853, Brings Fancy Price. Ashland One of the bippest real es tate deals in the history of this section was the sale of the E. K. Anderson farm, five miles northeast of Ashland, one of the oldest and choicest farms in the Rogue river valley to G. A. Morse for $106,500. Mr. Morse is re cently from Louisiana, and he has ex tensive investments in this section. The farm disposed of consists of 305 acres, the sale price being $350 an acre. Of the trat sold 43 acres are in apple and peach trees from two to seven years old. Fifty acres are in alfalfa, the remainder being devoted to general farming. All of it is choice fruit land favorably located, and the entire tract will eventually be turned into fruit acreage. Mr. Anderson has farmed this par ticular tract of land since 1853, and upon it grew the first wheat ever milled in this part of the state. Some years ago he purchased home property in Ashland and has only lived on the farm a portion of the time, a son, G. N. Anderson, having charge of the i lace. APPLES AT TOP PRICE. Hood River Union Closes $160,000 Deal With Eastern Buyers. Hood River Joseph Steinhardt, of the commission firm of Steinhardt & Kelly, the New York firm that bought the output of the Hood River Apple- growers union last year, has set the apple buying ball rolling by again pur- hcasing the entire crop handled by the union at a gross figure that will total over $150,000. According to Mr. Steinhardt and the officers of the union, the announcement of the sale will cause a quick scramble for box fruit in other Northwest sec tions, as they have been waiting for the signal from Hcod River in order to get a line on prices. The sale includes the purchase of 60,000 to 70,000 boxes of fancy fruit or about 125 cars, and it is claimed that it will be the biggest deal made this year by one firm. The fruit is to be especially packed for Steinhardt and Kelly and will be labeled with a new label just adopted by the union and an effort will be made to send one large shipment in a solid train of refrigera tor cars to New York. Would Hurry Allotments. Klamath Falls Complaint is made of unnecessary delay in allotments of the Klamath Indian reservation. The matter is in the hands of Rev. H. F White, who began the task two years ago. At that time it was announced that it would require not more than six months to do the work. When the Indians have received their lands there will be left over about 200.000 acres of fertile farming land, stock range and timbered tracts. If these lands are opened for settlement it will mean an enormous influx of people into the Klamath country and will greatly in crease the resources of this section. Milton Growers Ship Apples. Milton W. E. Gibson, of the Sibson Fruit company, of Chicago, is in Mil ton shipping about 100 carloads of prunes bought from the Milton Fruit growers' union. The price being paid is $32 per ton. Last year the crop was sold for $15 per ton. A large torce oi packers bas been employed in the sheds for two weeks and a larger force of pickers has been engaged in gathering the fruit. The orchards owned by C. L. Stewart, C. W. Ray and John M. Brown, near Crockett, are good illustrations of the prune indus try here. Rich Strike at Gold Hill. Gold Hill In the Gray Eagle mine development has opened the mine 70 feet below the first tunnel and struck a body of ore which shows values from $6 to over $300 per ton. A ten stamp mill is now on the way to the property, the mill having been started after the main stockholders and diretors bad ex amined the ground carefully. In the workings a 13 foot vein has been found so far and still the foot wall has not been reached. Drill for Oil Near Roseburg. Roseburg The Dillard Development company has received a drilling outfit to be used in drilling for oil near Look ing Glass, about 12 miles west of this city. Indications of oil have been known in this vicinity for a long time. Although the machine is rnnnhla nf going down 2,000 feet it is expected on win be reached at less than that depth. Crop Prospects Good. Klamath Falls Recent rain through out the entire Klamath country have put the fan range in good condition and stock is doing well. The moisture did some damage to the hay crop on the ground, but the loss is slight Grain was not injured, but harvesting will be a few days late on account of the rains. The grain yield will be ex ceptionally good. Gold Beach Mines Active. Gold Beach Considerable activitv is being manifested here in the copper mines. An English syndicate has re cently purchased the Shasta Costa properties, paying $12,000 for them.. The syndicate has also bonded the Deans-Crook holdings for $20,000. The bills are alive with prospectors. STARTS PHEASANT INDUSTRY. Lebanon Fancier Succeeds In an Un usual Undertaking. T.k.nnnR P.

Prune Packers at Work. Eugene The Eugene Fruit Growers' association has begun packing fresh prunes for shipment. The association expects to ship a carload of prunes to the East every other day for two weeks or more. Contracts have been made for over six carloads. The crop in the vicinity of Eugene this year, while light, is of excellent quality and will bring the highest price in the Eastern markets. Besides the prunes to be shipped by the Fruit Growers' associa tion, there will be several carloads sent out by the Allen Fruit company, which operates an evaporator and can nery here.

Services Attended Principally by Em ployes of Estate. Arden, N. Y., Sept 13. Through the quiet aisles of Ramapo woods, tho body of Edward Henry Harriman was carried yesterday from the great house be never lived to see completed, and laid in its last resting place on the Arden hillside. The rulers of Wall street came from New York to pay their last tribute, but the most prominent part in the cer emony was taken by the men who knew bim best as a country squire and mas ter of the great estate, which covers 43,000 acres of hill and valley. His general superintendent his mas ter carpenter, his master mason and the managers and assistant managers of his dairies, his farms and his trotting stables bore his coffin. The funeral was private and only those who were personal friends of the family and had received invitations from Mrs. Harri man were admitted. The out-of-town party arrived at Arden at 3:15 p. m. on a special train. The first service was holy commu nion, celebrated at 10 a. m. by the Rev. J. Holmes McGuiness, at the Harriman home, on Tower Hill. At 11 o'clock there came a public memori al service at St John's church for the employes of the farm and parishioners, who, on account of lack of space, were unable to attend the funeral service later. Mrs. Charles D. Simons, Mr. Harriman's sister, her husband, two daughters and Orlando H. Harriman, a brother-in-law, were the only relatives present Elaborate precautions were taken to preserve the privacy of the afternoon service. Several score of employes, aided by a number of policemen, guard ed all roads over which the funeral pro cession passed and kept watch at inter vala of 20 yards around the patch of woods which includes the Harriman burial plot. The casket one solid mass of lilies of the valley and green vines with an immense bunch of crimson roseB on top was carried to the altar by eight bearers in black and wearing black skull caps. The regular'funeral service was conducted by Dr. McGuiness, as sisted by Rev. G. Nelson, archdeacon of the Cathedral of St John the Divine in New York. A male quartet and the choir of Grace church, New York, sang "Abide With Me" and "There Is a Land of Pure Delight," Mr. Harri man's favorite hymns. The Bervice lasted but 20 minutes. Then the bear ers carried the caaket to the burial plot, 100 yards up the hill. There was no room inside the burial ground for more than 15 or 20 beside the mourners and the two officiating clersrvmen Others stood on the road outside and looked over the stone wall. Several hundred Harriman emnloves and their families stood with bared heads outside the church during the service. CHILDREN GREET TAFT. Spectacular Feature Given President When He Goes to Chicago.
