strange that she should feel the strain.
Her Bole Aim.
No woman of the present generation has
taken ovvr the control of such complex
business affaire aa did Mrs. Hirrlinan. Yet
aha baa approach! her added duties with
quiet reserve, and determination. Her sole
aim, covering the' laft year, appears to
have, been to perpetuate the things under
takes, by Mr. Harrlman for his country
and -sea. One of hetl first acts was to
lift lha mortgage on 'the building owned
by the Boys' club, at Tenth street and Ave
nue A. This cost Mrs. Harrlman $133. CM).
A canvas of a number of the properties
of which a controlling Interest Is now
vested In Mrs Harrlman shows that not
so much aa a single $12 clerk has been dis
turbed from his living. In fact, wages
have been increased where possible, and
In several instances, businesses are being
conducted without may profit whatever
from purely sentimental reasona on the
part of Mrs. Harrunan. In the manage
ment of the vast estate she has had the
valued aervlcaa of Charles C. Tegethoss,
twelve years associated with the late Mr.
Harrlman In a special confidential
capacity. . A permanent broker In Wall
treat today stated tbat Mrs. Harrlman
had not withdrawn a dollar of capital
from the great railroad and Industrial en
temrlses Identified with the name of
Harrlman. . . . r ,

sale of holdings In the Equitable Life In
surance society she has retained. It Is un
derstood, her stock In Union Pacific,
Southern Pacific, Wells Fargo, B & O.,

In her attitude to the Wall street prop

counsel and "advice of Charles A. Peabody,

NEW I-ORT, Sept 11 (Special Telegram)
Doctors Austin Flint and Harry J- Knapp,
who are in sttendance on Reginald Vander
bilt. denied with htat and In most positive
manner a story printed In New York that
Mr. Vanderbilt Is laid up with a bullet
wound inflicted by the husband of a young
society w oman at whose house in Kay
street Mr. Vanderbilt was a frequent
caller. They declared the story false
Mrs. Kedinald Vanderbilt and Mrs. Fred
K. Nelson, her mother, have gone to New
York to attend the funeral of Frederick
Oeuhard. Mrs. Vanderbilt's uncle. Conse
quently they could not add to. the Indig
nant denials of the physicians.
Friends of the stricken young millionaire
chai acterized the story as malicious and
witnout the slightest foundation.
Ever since Mr. Vanderbilt became 111 a
week or so ag.i. gossip has been bu.-y wltn
th cause. Announcement by the family
and physicians that he had been stricken
with typhoid fever fai.ed so far to satisfy
the incredulous. It was declared that the
fever was the only ailment. Access to him.
even by his Intimates, was of course Impossible.
The woman whose name has been
dragged into the case Is young and beau
tiful and a favorite In the set to which Mr.
Vanderbilt belongs. Her father has in of
fice In the Wall street district, and h- r
husband Is wealthy. Confidence that ...hatantiai n.t,.r.
nothing of the kind occurred is varmly
professed by frienda of all partiea involved
and In support of It thoy point to the
appearance today of the young woman and
her husband together driving.
Another phase of the lnclds.it was that
the Indignant husband and several friends
waylaid Mr. Vanderbilt at night cn the
country road leading to Sandy Point,
hauled him film his automobile and
severely thrashed him.
Husli cables to the family were aent al
most Immediately when Mr. Vanderbilt ns
stricken down. His mother, Mrs. Cor
nelius Vanderbilt, the Countess Zjchenyl,
his sister, and Alfred G. Vanderbilt, his
brother, were summoned In this way. The
brother gavo up hit coaching plans in
England and has since arrived, and it.e
others are on the way.

been taken out of the dungeon, hs col

had been shaved off, and he had to be
carried to the cell.
The offense for which Morse was put In

be released shortly, to help thera get a new
start. He had given some money to an

More Graft in the

Four Classes of Workers Are Involved
and Rank and File Disposed to
LONDON. Sept. U. (8peclrJ Telegram. )
Labor disputes are developing rapidly In
Great Britain. Hitherto the leaders have
generally dominated the course of events,
but a peculiar feature of the present crisis
Is that the rank and file are disposed to
regulate the loaders and take affairs Into
their own hands. Formerly the danger of
Industrial war was considered to lie in the
spread of organisation; now Is It seen to
spring from the breakdown of organisation.
Four classes of workers are Involved,
They are the northern shipbuilders, the
Welsh miners, the employes of the Great
Northern railway and the cotton spinners
of Manchester. The particular body of
shipbuilders concerned are the bollermakers.
Overthrowing their leaders, they voted two
to one to tear up the arbitration agreement
In force between them and their employers,
The latter retaliated with a. lockout.
The Welsh miners and the Great Northern
railway men are also In revolt against their
leaders and their arbitration agreements.
The situation Is almost Identical In Man
chester, where the operatives of the Oldham
mill are on strike, and the employers are
declaring that unless consent is given to
arbitration by next Monday they will de
clare a general lockout to begin in October,
