SIZING UP CARNEGIE'S PILE

A reliable statement made ia IMC placed
the sum of Mr. Carnegie's capital at
tn.000.ON. including the existing premi
um on hi bonds and several million of
dollars la gif U bestowed but not paid
over. This would produce Interest, on a
i per cent basis, ot ttt.7Se.MS per annum.
A business associate, on the other hand,
estimated when the Steel Corporation
was formed that Mr. Carnegie income
wa somewhere between $24,000.00 and
tSs.000,00 a year; while In 195 It was
said to he In tbe neighborhood of 13s,
000.0M a year. Indicating aa increase of
tW.000.00 In capital since NM.
From 11 to 1M) the list ot gift ag
gregated upward of tlls.008.sOO, or sn
average of tS.OuMM for each of the five
year. Sine then, or between April 4.
190s, and April S. Hit th list of glfu
was swelled by additions totaling about,
t3S.00t.wn, an average of tll.0t0.0t) for'
each of the three year. In 111. a was
computed recently. Mr. Carnegie' bene
factions aggregated t30.516.000.
From these figure th Impression I
gained that hla Income and hi benefac
tion from year to year are not widely
From these estimate it would appear,
then, thnt the glfu of Mr. Carnegie hare
not made serious Inroada into hi cap
ital, whilch Is over tMO.OtO.000, and prob
ably nearer t2iO.ON.0M. and that hla In
come range from fll.OOt.00 to t30.00O.O0t
per annum, and is possibly about mid
way between th two. .
Th waya In which such fortunes In
crease In an am ting manner Is Instanced
in a story told of Mr. Carnegie-apoc
ryphal, of course, but precisely to: the
point. One of Mr. Carnegie' friends
called on him. so the etury gem. and
wa shown by him through the resi
dence on Fifth avenue, then recently
completed. After they bad looked over
th great halt the marble bath, the
great organ, and tbe long library over
looking Central Park, the visitor turned
to Mr. Carnegie and remarked:
"Thl must have coat you a lot ot
money. Mr. Carnegie."
"To tell you the truth." Mr. Carnegl
replied, "It didn't cost mo a cent."
"How do you make that out?" asked
th astonished guest.
"It was like this." Mr. Carnegl re
plied. "I bought this block ot ground
from Fifth to Madison avenue a number
of year ago. It value Increased rapidly.
When I was ready to build, I oid
oft th Madison avenue end and got
enough for It to pay roe what I had
pent for the whole plot."
