ation and retrenchment met at the Hotel

largely by not being able to as ess such
properties as the Western Union Telegraph
Company Reverting to tin question of
estates a member of the committee asked

ment of Jay Gould and he replied that for
four years it had teen S5C0CO but for
many years prior to that it was ony S259
C00 and Mr Gould complained not a little

pew had told him that Commodore Vander
bilt often carried an indebtedness of 520
000000 and saved from 5 to 7 per cent on
