LONDON, Sept. 10,-The death of E. H.
Harrlman was anticipated by the Stock
exchange, and after a long period of un
certainty the effect of tho passing away
of the railroad magnate was not as pro
nounced as had been anticipated. Prices
were marked down at the opening, but the
market was quiet and It recovered quickly
when the buyers came forward.
Before the market .opened several promi
nent jobbers made wide prices at 1 to 1
points below parity. Repurchasing by the
bears who had sold short on the chance
of Mr. Harriman's dying, and buying on
American account, however, soon brought
the market to a much higher level. Union

PARIS, Sept. 10. Although the Parts
bourse for several days has been hanging
anxiously on news of the condition of
the late E. H. Harrlman, the announce
ment of the financier's death did not
create a, shock. Prices opened steady, In
some cases showing Improvement over
yesterday's close. Among French finan
cier's Mr. Harriman's Immense power and
capacity was widely recognized, but the
general feeling Is today that the United
States are so rich in resources and the
productive capaolty Is so great that the
death of one man, no matter how far
reaching his Interests, will not stop the
onward march of the country's pros
perity. The view taken by Americans Interested
Is best shown by the fact, that offices of
bankers and brokers doing business In
American securities had a predominance
of buying orders today.

Bids Farewell to Family.
F.x-Judge Robert S. Lovett, vice president
of the Union Pacific and one of Mr. Harri
man's closest associates, remained at the
house all Wednesday night. Although the
patient's vitality was at a low stage and
he was suffering from a high fever, he re
vived a trace yesterdsy morning and en
deavored to cheer his dsspalred wife and
"Don't worry my dear." he eald to his
daughter, Mlsa Mary Harrlman, "I am
going to get well."
Some hours later It became apparent that
the end of the brilliant career was ap
proaching and the members of Mr. Harri
man's family were summoned to the bed
side. There, according to one of those
present, the scene enacted was most Ef
fecting, as the husband and father bade
his wife and ohlldren good-bye. With un
faltering courage, but ebbing strength, he
elapsed hands with all for the last time,
embraoed them, spoke words of cheer to
his wife and daughter and of advice to his
sons, Roland and Averill. Roland, the
yongest son, who has been his father's
oonstant companion during his Miners, was
shaking with sobs as his father clasped
him in his arms and whispered the fare
List of Active Pallbearers.
The active pall-bearers will be the six
men In charge of the various departments
of Mr. Harriman's estate at Arden and
Turner. They are Chaites T. Ford, his
general superintendent; William Vlner,
manager of the farm at Arden; William
Bobbins, superintendent of Mr. Harriman's
stock farm and In general charge of his
trotting horses at Goshen; P. W. Mandlgo,
his master carpenter; E. . jenulia, mas
ter mason and William A. McClellan, su
perintendent of the Arden farms dairy
company. The list of honorary pall-bearers
has not yet been announced.
The millionaire's body will rest la a grave
blasted from the solid rock of the hillside.
This method of burial was adopted when
his oldest son, Edward H. Harrlman, jr.,
was burled twenty-two years ago. The
Harrlman plot Is in a far corner of the
grave yard and the only spot In the en
closure where the blue stone of Tower
hill rises to the surface. Men began work
today quarrying out the grave.

Judge Robert S. Lovett, considered Mr.
Harriman's chief business and legal ad
vlser, explained today the stience which
baffled all seekers for information regard
ing Mr. Harriman's condition. He said
'Mr. Harriman's life was so interwoven
with Wall street and financial affairs that
any change In his condition would have
affected the financial world. I thought It
advisable not to run the danger of mis
representation and so said nothing about
his condition. Any statement one way or
tho other would have been misunderstood."
Judgii Lovett, who came up here yester
day, after Mr. Harriman's death, did not
go to New York until late today.
To Finish Work on Estate.
Partly from Judge Lovett and partly from
Charles T. Ford, superintendent of the
Harrlman estate. It was learned today that
the extensive work on the estate planned
by Mr. Harrlman during the last two years
will be carried out acoording to his wishes,
This was the assumption yesterday, al
though no one In a position to know had
discussed the matter. But Judge Lovett
'I understand that Mlsa Mary Harriman
has been entering Into her father's plans
for the estate and will .undoubtedly see
that they are carried to completion."
Ford announced later that every one of
the workmen who laid down his tools yes
terday when the men first learned of their
employer's death, will return to work Mon
aay morning. This news relieved an
anxiety that affected nearly every home
in Arden and Turner.
Mr. Harriman's will, the slse of his
estate, and his probable successor In con
trol of his railroads, were subjects Judge
Lovett declined to discuss. "All that will
be known In due time," he said.
One report here has It that the millionaire
bequeathed 23,000 acres of woodland In
Orange county to the state for a park, pro.

Admiral Deklchelleu, In a speech, thanked
Dr. Cook for returning to the United States
under the Danish flag. ,
"Green-eyed envy and jealousy," said the
admiral, "are doing their envenomed work,
but we In Denmark believe In you absolutely."
'I want to thank you," said Dr. Cook in
reply, "for the great honor that is mine
in going home on a Danish steamer. Since
I cannot reach home on an American
steamer or an expedition vessel, It Is fit
ting that I should go on a steamer of the

Commander Peary's married life has been

prompted him In the hour of the triumph
of his life's work to send the first an
nouncement: "Have made good at last,"
to Mrs. Peary at their summer home in
Maine. Later the commander wired his
wife to oome and meet him at Sydney,
adding: "Bring the kids." The "kids"
are, Marie, aged 14, who was born in
Greenland, and Robert E., Jr., aged (.
Next Sunday Is Marie's birthday and she
is hoping that the arrival of the Roosevelt

Shortly before 4 o'clock three motor

Mrs. Peary said that she thought her
