He will sail for home, however, with

Inasmuch as the supreme crisis In
Mr. Rockefeller's affairs came in 1875,
when b was iu desperate straights
and owned vastly more than he could
pay if forced by His creditors, the
solid growth of bis present vast for
tune, whether it be a billion, as some
assert, or only bait as much, should
be considered a matter of only about
thirty years three short decades.
Yet be is undoubtedly tbe richest man
in tbe United States, possibly In tbe
whole world. The growth of tbn
Rockefellers interests, tbe evolution
of tbe Standard Oil company, its var
iegated history, the railroad rebates
upon which it throve and waxed fat,
tbe tierce wars made upon it by tbe
state aud national otticials, the indict
ment of its oilicers iu Texas a few
years ago, attempt on tbe part of the
state of Kansas to compete with it,
tbe campaign waged against it by the
state of Missouri, its extension to ev
ery continent and, how it has made
scores ot millionaires, these things
have been tbe subject of more ephem
eral and permanent literature, pio
bably, than any other business enter
prise since tbe world began.
At G7 years of age Jobu D. Rocke
feller is estimated to be worth $0X10,
000,000, aecoordiut to the figures of
careful investigators. Last year Mr.
Rockefeller was worth 1502,000,000,
showing a gain for tun present year of
818,000,000. Iu lSWObehad only $400,

President Koosevelt to
Vast Sum For Reclamation.
Washington, July 17. The half cen
tury mark is gradually being attained
by tbe national reclpmaticn fund. To
day, upon close study of h's books, an
rilioial at the interior department an
nounced that the fund bad reached
the enormous total of $337,076,000.
About 85,500,000 wes added to the
fund during the fiscal year ended
June 30 from the sale of publio lauds.
Asked to explain tbe increase over
lust year this ollicial snid:
"The department has restored to
entry over 1,000,000 pcres of lend that
had been withdraw! from entry under
the reclamation act to.' examination.
As soon as u pioject is declared un
feasible the laud is restored to entry.
In that nay much laud has been
t hi own open to tbe homeseeker and
mtuy dollars added to tbe reclama
"Tliero is an expected balance ol
little more than $2,000,000 iu the
fund, but, according to my informant,
no new projects will be taken np foi
tbe time being indeed, not until the
returns are received from some of tbe
projec?s iu Arizona, New Mexioo aud
Nevada, tbat aie about completed."
Another source of great worry to
the reclamation service has been the
labor problem, according to this
ollicial. Wages are high and labor is
scarce. This combination, it is said,
has used the department to revise a
few of its estimates iu building irti
cation projects in the west. Should
this situation continue much longer
it is feared that work under the Carey
act will come to a standstill iu a few
