Lenox, Mass., Aug. 12.—In his

his country into the world war ;
Andrew Carnegie, iron master and]
philanthropist died today from
Andrew Carnegie began a race
against time when, in 1901, at tin-
age of sixty-five he resolved to
give away his enormous fortune.
He held it "disgraceful" for a man I
to keep on gathering idle millions j
Iri the comparatively few years
which the actuary could allow
him, he would disembarrass him-
self of practically all he had. No
man had ever launched a philan-j
Ifchropic campaign of such dimen-
His was a fortune of just about
a ijuarter billion dollars, the larg-
est ever acquired by a foreign-
born American, second only to'
the John 1). Rockefeller wealth as
the largest individual aceumuhi-1

built, as it was, of five per cent >
steel bonds, it would, without so'
much as turning over one's hand.;
have approached half a billion by
the time Carnegie could call him-]
self an octogenarian on Novem-
ber 25, 1915,
To give this stupendous sum
away in about half the time he
had taken to gather it, was a pur-
pose Carnegie had fairly well ful-
filled when death overtook him.

lie declared, when he gave up
leathering wealth and announced
an era of distribution, that he ex-
pected to find it more difficult to
give away his millions than it
had been to acquire them. "How
would you give $300,000,000
away'.'", became such a popular
query that an English advertiser
who employed it, received no less
than 45,000 suggestions as to how
< arnegie could rid himself of his
wealth. Twelve thousand persons
solved the problem in part by ask-
ing for some of the money for
The answer which Carnegie
himself gave and hacked up with
his millions have made him the

Before he sailed for Scotland in
1901 he left letters announcing
gifts of $9,000,000. IT is first big
gift was the setting aside of $4,-
000,000 to supply pensions and re-
lief for the injured and aged em-
ployes of his steel plants—"an
acknowledgement of the deep debt
which 1 owe to the workmen who
have contributed so greatly to my
success." He added an extra mil-
lion for the support of libraries

One of his latest and greatest
ideals was the abolition of war, a!
hope (hat he cherished in the face]
ol international conflicts. He gave!
$1,000,ooo toward an Internation-
al Peace fund, and built the Peace
Palace at. the Hague, which was
dedicated in 1913. He gave $750,-
000 for the Bureau of American
Republics at Washington.
His love of music moved him to
equip hundreds of churches and
institutions with pipe-organs. He
never gave directly any large
sums to religious purposes. Of
hs organ gifts he said he would
hold himself responsible for what
the organ pealed forth on the Sab-
bath, but not for what might be
said in the pulpit. One of his very
early gifts, as far back as 1891,
was the Carnegie Music Hall in
New York, at a cost of $2,000,000
and as president of the New York
Philharmonic Society he spent |
his money liberally in furthering
its ideals. He also liberally baekec! j

Commander Booth Tells of New Com-
Following the announcement that
the Salvation Army was to take over
all of the available saloons in the big
community centers this explanation is
given by Kvangeline Booth, command- \
er of the Salvation Army in the Dnit- |
ed States in the New York Evening j
We of the Salvation Army believe!
that the saloon became an institution •
because ii was not wholly bad. It had j
an appeal to the social instinct. In 1
taking over saloons the Salvation Ar-I
my will sell only non-intoxicating |
drinks and it will try to give the good
features of what we call the saloon
and take out of it all that made for
the undermining of character.

Merely a Salvage Movei.
Since our announcement with re-
gard to the taking over of saloons we
have received many inquiries as to
how we would carry out this project
on a large scale. $t is not our inetn-
tion to make extensive investments or
to use any large amount of capital for
this purpose, but where there are leas-
es which may run for a year or so and
where fixtures are available it will be
practical to carry out our plans with-
out any large expenditures.
The saloon as planned by the Sal-
vation Army would become essential-
ly a poor man's club, where non-intox-
icating liquors and wholesome food
wonhl be served.
