There Will Be Xo Contest Hut One
Was Narrow ly Averted Cornelius
Yandcrbilt, Jr., la Represented to
lie the Disturbing F.lemcnl.
Nrw Vohk, Oct. 2S The Tribune
thla morning aayi: The provisiooe of
the will of Cornelius Vanderbilt, which
were made public yesterday, excited
intense interest. From certain remark!
it appear! that thla settlement alone,
edVc'ed after long di(Ctieion, prevented
a contest that might bavu resulted in
one of the greatest and most coctly will
litigation! ever known.
Comeliua Vanderbilt, jr., when he
learned tbe provision! of bia father's
will, placed his interesta in the hands of
his counsel, Carter A Ledyard. They
conducted negotiations with Henry 1).
Anderson, the attorney of Alfred (iwynne
Vanderbilt. While none ot those inter
ested would say what was done, enongh
has tieen admitted to indicate that had
Alfred not made tbe concession men
tioned, litigation would have followed.
It was learned from a trustworthy
source yesterday that Cornelius Vander
bilt, jr., is much disappointed by his
father's will and the attitude in which
be lias been placed by bis brother's
handsome concession, and that be
will withdraw from any farther partici
pation in the affairs of the Vanderbilt
property. Cornelius Vanderhilt, jr., ia
described bv those who know blm inti
mately as a rrticfiit young man. He
took hi! disagreement with hia father
much to heart, and after bia marriage
tried in every way to overome the diffi
culty. He entered the oflico ol tf.e superin
tendent of motive power of the New York
Central, and went to work to prove his
merit. He worked e.irly and I ale. He
never asked more than any other em
ploye. He did everything lie could to
prove (obis father his serioni intentions.
He never mm plained, and never allowed
an opportunity to pass without trying to
secure a re-es:.thhhmeut of the former
cordial relations bctaeen himseif end
It is said further that be hoped and
b.'lirved he bad succeeded in gaining his
lather's favor. The two men did not
discuss the subject, but for hours father
and son talked cordially at. the Breakers
in Newport, and also In this city.
Inventor of the LinuUpc Dead.
I!ai TiM.iiiK, Oct. 28.-Ot.tmar Mergen
thaler, inventor of the linotype type
setting machine, died this morning of
Mergenthalcr was born In Wurtem
bnrg, Germany, in 1831. While be was
still a boy lie was apprenticed to a
watchmaker, but did not acrve out his
time, owing to his desire to escape
military service In the German army.
When he landed in Baltimore his entire
capital was only f;IO. Going to Washing
ton, the ronng immigrant secured work
in the machine shop of his uncle, and it
was there that he originated and per
fected the machine that has revolution
ized the printing business. The invention
was somewhat slow in being generally
adopted, but Mergentbaler lived to see
the product of his genius In universal
use. A syndicate, headed by Whitelaw
Held, exploited the patents. Mergen
thaler was never strong in health.

London, Oct 30. A dispatch to tbe
Associated f ress from Lady-smith this
morning, which n sent at express
rates, came through in the remarkable
time of two hours.
A dispatch from the Durban Times at
9:55 this morning supplements the As
sociated Press dispatch with tl.o infor
mation that the Boers' shells were
chiefly directed at the station and that
no dainags was done up to the time the
message troui Durban waa forwarded;
that the heavy gins ot the Bjers, from
which so much was expect-.. 1, should
be silenced so speedily as indicated in
the Associated Press dispatch from
Ladysmith is a matter of great surprise,
but the subsequent advance ct the
burgher force on tbe British letl Sank
show! tbe attackers wer";in;io way dis
mayed thereby, and were still full of
self -confidence and the daring they have
exhibited on various occasions.
Apparently the Boera have coccen-
trated for a supreme effort at Ladysmith.
They have withdrawn their forces from
other points, which they consider mo
mentaiiiy to be of less Importance.
The peieverance the Boers bave
shown in transporting heavy ordnance
and posting it in ommanding positions
has forced admiration even from their
enemies. Unless the present attack is
merely a feint to occupy the British
while the invaders are cutting off from
the southward, tbe battle which opened
this morning mav decide t lie isme of
the war so far as fighting in the open is
concerned, as, unless the 18,000 or 20,
000 Boers about l.ailvsmith are able to
destroy 12,000 British, they can hardly
hope to cope with General Butler's army
corps, so it may be expected tbe Boers
will return to the attack of Ladysmith

their success will bring thousands of

All Machinery and Stock, Including
Fifteen Thousand Cases of Canoed
Salmon, Went I'p iu Smoke.
Faibiiavev, Wash., O -t. 30. The Ab
erdeen Packing Company 'a cannery
burned thij morning at 1 o'clock. The
loss is estimated at $150,000. The can
nery and e intents were insured for
$70,000. 120,000 of which was on the
buildir g. There were 13.fK 0 cases of
canned salmon in the buildicg, very
little of which will be saved. A million
and a half of labels, 12,000 empty boxes,
$2000 worth of lacquer, 5000 cases ot
emptv cans and other canuery material
The machinery was the best of its
kind, an I included a caninaking outfit.
Out of the $15,000 worth, only the boil
era and retorts will be worth anything.
The rest is warped and destroyed. Tbe
c.innery was 205 feet long and 185 feet
wide, and thia year the product put up
w as 70,0(10 cases.
The fire originated from an explosion,
probably in ttie lacq.ier room, and in a
few minutea the building was all in
flames. There was no wind, and the
weather was damp r.n 1 fog.tr, otherwise
tbe entire water front would bave
burned. The Fairhaln Canning Co's.
storehouse, near by, was partly burned,
and part of the $40,000 worth of eockeye
salmon in it damaged, but it is fully
covered by insurance.
