'Wasnti' ' 'jfrirem THE tfEAD HAND OF HARRIMAN WIPES THE NAME OF GOULD FROM OFF THE RAILROAD MAP New York, Jan. 6. The dead hand of Edward H. Harriman has reached from the grave and wiped the once powerful name of Gould from off the railroad map. That name, once the synonym for railroad greatness, passed from the railroad circles two days ago, when George J. Gould resigned as chairman of the board of directors of the Denver & Rio. Grande railroad. By that resignation, George Gould lost control of the last of the vast railroad properties left him by his father, and the last faint bubble of his dream of a great transcontinental Gould sys tem burst forever. When Jay Gould, master of fi nance, hardbitten old railroad king, died, he left $80,000,000 to be managed by his oldest son, George. For twelve years prior to his father's death, George had man aged the Gould properties un der his father's supervision at a .salary of $500,000 a year. And during the 12 years, the Gould properties...

How many millions Gould dropped in Pittsburgh never will be known. There would be too many indictments. Enemies of Gould popped up everywhere. Where once the name of Jay Gould had stood for hard, unrelenting power, the power of a master captain of fi nance, the name of George J. Gould "became a joke. In 1905 he had to fight Joe Ramsay for the presidency of the Wabash. He won, at a bitter cost to find his victory hollow. Out West, the railroad com missions mysteriously began to take a most active and disastrous interest in the Gould roads. Then came the panic of 1907. And Harriman began to close the net around Gould. Within a year the Western Maryland, the Wheeling and Lake Erie, and the International and Great Northern all went into the hands of receiv...

Clarence Virgil Thompson Richeson to the electric chair for the murder of Avis Linnell was postponed this afternoon until 1 o'clock tomor row. The postppnement was caused by the sudden nervous break down of Attorney Morse, chief counsel for Richeson. The con fession of his client has proved too much for Morse. Judge Sanderson has no option but to sentence Richeson tc the electric chair tomorrow. The law of Massachusetts provides no oth er penalty for the man who pleads guilty to murder in the first de gree. There is only one way in which Richeson's life may be saved. That is through Governor Foss, who has the power of commuta tion. Governor Foss is known to be ' opposed, to capital punishment. So is the majority of his council. , But it is doubtful if Governor Foss wilhact in view of the sen timent of the people in Massa chusetts, a sentiment that is growing as the circumstances su...
