Tho nows of tho rnllroad king's

Edwin Harry Harrlman was born
February 24, 1848, at Hompton, L.

Orlando H. Harrlman, an Eplscapal

moagrc salary was in arrears, and
his pride prevented him from atcopl
Ing holp from his frlonds. Tho Har

Young Harrlman's education was
little and desultory.
While still In his teens, young Har
rlman went Into Wall street as a
broker's clerk. Ho set In to learn
the Wall street game. It was In tho

So young Harrlman was soon grad

Within 10 or 15 years he had made
his million; had won tho respect of
W. K. Vanderbllt and Stuyvesant
Fish. He had established his brok

Also ho was studying railroads
studying them as no man bad ever

wealth of the undeveloped West. He

"This means state division. Tho

dignation ovor the action of the state
board of equalization upon an in

tlon of taxable proporty in this
county Is being expressed through
out tho city today. The attitude of
tho board during Its sosslon hero,
coupltd with what Is declared goner
ally by business men to bo an unjust
and outrageous raise In the local val
uation, bids fair to result In a crys
talizatlon of the long smoldering
sentiment for stato division.
