Ifad Lonir ttren Lending? Figaro In
No man ot recent times has occupied a
mora prominent place In American fU
nuncial history than John Plefpont Mor

for mora than ialf a century; and dur

unquestionably, the financial dictator of
the United States. When a panto seized
Wall street In 1901 during the struggle
for the control of the Northern Pacific
railroad it was Mr, Mopgan who came
to the rescue. Again, when In the 'fall
ot 1907 the Wall street panic was at Its
height, the financiers , of the.country In
stinctively turned to Mr. Morgan for
aid and advice. - He, heeded the -appeal1,
and within, forty hours created' a .')ool

what seemed to be a panio that would

of the, country.
Aside from thesis two Incidents, Mr.
Morgan probably will bo chiefly remem

violent decline In the securities of the
Steel trust during the depression of 1003

forth from the thousands of Investors
In the United States and In Europo who
put thrlr money into these securities had
been a thorn In Mr. Morgan's side, and

Concrete Results of Ilia Work.
As an example ot business capacity
ot a remarkable kind, Mr. Morgan was
almost without parallel. He was as cap
able as any of the Rothschilds In the
money line, and his achievements as an
Industrial organlter surpassed any sim
ilar feats performed by other operators
In the United States or abroad.
Among the concrete results of Mr.
Morgan's financial genius were the reor
ganisation of the Buffalo & West Shore,
and its lease to tho New York Central,
the reorganisation of the Chesapeake &
Ohio; the rearrangement of the Great
Southern, and the reorganisation ot the
Erie. His Influence was' also materially
felt In the Pacific system. Some of the
achtevomehts which he made Incidents to
his money and railroad business are the
present efficiency of the China and .lapan
carrying trade, the consolidation ot the
Western Union Telegraph and the Amer
ican Bell Telephone company, the com
bination ot the coffin producing and steel
industries, and tho launching of the Kd

It 1b Imposlblo to estimate with any
degree of accuracy the size of the Morgan
fortune. It has been variously esti
mated in recent years at from $76,000,000
to $200,000,000. If it Is anywhere near the
latter figure, it Is equally true that Mr.
Morgan has made much for others.
In 1S61 Mr. Morgan married Miss Amelia
Sturges, who died the following year. In
18C6 he married Frances Louise Trscy, by
whom he had one son and three daugh
ters. The son, J. P. Morgan. Jr., Is now
a man of middle life, and for a number
of years has been the active head of the
Morgan banking house In New York.
MORGAN'S DEATH IS DISCOUNTED
nlis Dnslness Una' Been Expecting It
nnd No, Financial Trouble Feared.
Bankers of Omaha were not much sur
prised when newsboys, selling extras,
gave the news of the death of J. p.
Morgan, money king of America. That
the financial conditions of the country
will not be affected by the death of Mr.
Morgan was tho concensus of opinion
among the Omaha bankers.
Ex-Senator J. H. Millard, president of
the Omaha National bank, said: "I met
Mr. Morgan but twice, and then did not
get well acquainted with him. He was
the greatest financial force In America.
He took hold of more financial ventures
than any other man. I never knew him
to take hold of anything that wasn't
creditable from the beginning to the end.
He never took took on anything of a
questinable character. Whenever he said
a thing was so it was so. The business
of this country, however, will go on Just
