New York — Mrs. Hetty Green,
known as the world’s wealthiest wo­
man, whose fortune ie estimated as
high aa $100,000,000, died here Mon­
day, aged 80 years.
She had suffered
three strokes of paralysis ’ in the last
two months and for several weeks had
been practically helpless.
Her death occurred at H :06 o ’clock
at the home of her son, Colonel Ed­
ward 11. K. Green, adjoining the plain
brick four-story house on the corner of
Central Park West, where Mrs. Green
had lived lately in seclusion, except
for her son and several Japanese serv­
ants and trained nurses.
Wall street's estimates o f Mrs.
Green's fortune range from $20,000,-
000 to $100,000,000. Officials of the
Chemical National bank, In which Mrs.
Green once made her downtown head­
quarters, declined to hasard a guess
concerning the size of her estate.
Hetty Green was the world’s most
remarkable mistress of finance. The
richest woman in America, she lived
almost as frugally as u shop-girl. Her
home was wherever she chose for n
time to hang her little black crepe and
bonnet, often in the hall bedroom of
some cheap boarding house or in some

Mrs. Green's eccentric extremes of
economy led to the popular misconcep­

As a matter of fact she was burn rich.
In 1865 she inherietd some $10,000,-

until in 50 years it had multiplied
nearly ten times. She also inherited

Blome for Recent Irish Uprising
Placed by Royal Commission
I/ondon — The Royal

in its report submitted Tuesday says
the responsibility for the outbreak

answerable for the policy of the gov­

the causes of the outbreak in Ireland,
the report says:
“ The fact should be borne in mind
that there is always a section of opin­
ion in that country bitterly opposed to
British connection and that in times
of excitement this section can impose
its sentiments on largely increased
numbers of the poeple.”
The report points out that it is out­
side the scope of the commission's in­
structions to inquire how far the policy
of the Irish executive was adpoted by
the cabinet, or to attach responsibility
to any but the civil and military exec­
utive in Ireland.
The report then
gives these conclusions:
“ That the main cause of the rebel­
lion appears to be that lawlessness
was allowed to grow up unchecked and
that Ireland for several years had been
administered on the principle that it
was safer and more exi>edient to leave
the law in abeyance if a collision with
any faction of the Irish people could
therefore be avoided.”
The importation of large quantities
of arms into Ireland and the toleration
o f drilling by large bodies of men, the
report says, created conditions which
rendered possible the recent troubles
in Dublin and elsewhere.
“ It appears to u s," said the commis­
sioners, “ that reluctance was shown
by the Irish government to repress by
prosecution written and spoken utter­
ances and to suppress drilling and
maneuvering o f armed forces known to
be under control of men who o|>enly
were declaring their hostility to your
majesty’s government.
“ There developed widespread belief
that no repressive measures would be
undertaken by the government against
“ This led to a rapid increase of
preparation for insurrection and was
the immediate cruse of the recent out­
break. We are of the opinion that on
the outbreak of the war all drilling
and maneuvering by unrecognized bod­
ies o f men, whether armed or un­
armed, should have been strictly pro­
