Approaching Operation.
Arden. N. T.. Aug. 28. Whatever be
F. H. Harriman 's ailment, whatever hi
true condition, the public i not to kuow
until he ani his family dcnie that such
tn announcement is opportune. All
avenues of Information were carefully
guarded today, but minors wore spread
I'Toadcast that Mr. Harriman waa about
to be operated upon. This supposition
vu strengthened by the arrival here
of two oxygen tank- and a collapsible
cot anch as is used in hospital.
Coincident with ihe arrival of these
requisites to an operation came two
men from New York, one of tbem car
rying what appeared to be black bag
of a surgeon. Une of the men, It was
said, waa Dr. George W. Crille, of Cleve
land, an eminent specialist in abdominal
surgery. According to report, he was
summoned to assist Dr. W. G. Lylc of
New York, whe baa been Mr. Hem
man' physician throughout his illness.
Mr. Gerry denied the operation re
port and said Dr. Lylc waa the only
physician In attendance.
A. C rot, superintendent oi tno es
tate, confirmed Mr. Gerry's statement.
' ' The stories that Mr. Harriman is ib
a critical condition are not founded on
faet," said Mr. Ford. "He ha a firm
grip when be shake bands and he
appear brighter."
Th impression grow that an opera
tion of some character is to be per
formed en Mr. Harriman, but details
are well-nigh impossible to obtain. .

Seattle, Ang. 80. Tbs first national
conservation oongresa closed her Sat
urday afternoon with a complete vic
tory for Gifford Pinehot and bis follow
ers In the support of the Roosevelt pol
icies of tbs conservation of natural re
sources. It was a harmonious meeting
until Saturday, when United States
District Judge Hanford, of Seattle,
brought In a minority report in which
be opposed tb contention of tb Pincb-
ot men "That th water rights of the
country belong to all tba people and
should not be granted In perpetuity to
any Individual or corporation."
Hanford contended that "private en
terprise" had been tb greatest power
In this country for ths development of
resource and pointed out that through
private enterprise tb resources of
tb East had been put Into practical
uee, resulting in tb general prosperity
of th country. He argued against
any change hi tb present policy of the
government, asserting that tha West
ern states bad entered tb union under
a compact that they should have toe
same rights as tb Eastern state.
Former Governor Pardee replied to
Hanford in a spirited address In which
he said that "private greed" instead
of "private enterprise" was gobbling
up tb public domain. When the vote
was taken it waa shown that tha Han
ford re eolation had bean lost and the
Pine hot resolution was adopted.
