Born in Dumferlinc Scotland, he had emigrated to America with his father while lie wns a mere boy. He g:l work as a bobbin-bay in a cotton mill, then as a telegraph operator. From (his meager start he drifted into railroading, oil speculation, and finally into j r ;n and Kteelc. He built the- Edgar Thompson rail mill, nought, the Homestead plan,, and by 1001 was ru | ei of an empire of iron, steel coal and transport that was one of the chief constituents of the U S Steel Corporation AUicn it was formed in 1001. Carnegie, fabulously rich, .had acute views of (he responsibilities that went with Uis wealth He built 25()fl., public libraries, founded and aided. colleges. Ho contributed largely ,{j> jljlic [6tilldIng- of: the* Peace Palace up: Tlic Hague—where Ihe Permanent Court cf ; International Justice has held its sessions—and to the construction of the Pan- American building in Washington FOUNDS ENDOWMENT TO ABOLISH WAR His major move toward peace came in 1910 when nilh 510,000000 he founded the Carnegie Endowment for Internatirnal Peace for. "the speedy abolition of interim, tional war between the so-called civilized nations." The endowment wns given the Di-ondest powers to work for international peace in anv way its 27 trustees desired. Much of its work has been in aiding other peace societies, and iii making nnd publishing studies on subjects, economic and political, thai bear on peace Carnegie himself, though sincerely devoted to peace in the abstract, was no absclute pacifist He -was naturally pro-Ally when International Court of Permanent Justice in session'at The Hnpiif Peace Palace, built with Carnegie money. M- W T'» WlU ' b08an ' (hm ' eh hc work n living reality in the Yet lie, who had given 510,000000 to buy peace, was,quick to congratulate Charles Scluvnlj when the little town of Bethlehem (Pa.) had begmi to turn out such a volume of war supplies as to win for Schwab a personal tribute from Lord Fisher. Tlie Bethlehem \vorks were building, among other wnr' materials, submarines for the Dardanelles campaign. Further, Carnegie was eager for the Unitwl states to gel into tlie W; rid War and "finish the job." He was quite impatient with Wilson for his delays. The sleel magnate wrote Wilson to this effect two months before the MSI- was declared, and closed with the same hope that' was in millions of other breasts in these days: the war won and peace resumed, "at the next meeting at Tlie. Hague we would abolish war forever." PEACE WORK CONTINUES Carnegie died in 1910, too soon to have seen this new "air castle "I world peace" also "fallen like n house of cards." The work of his foundation went on. Elihn Root. Dr. James Brown Scott and, Dr. Nicholas Murray Butler m/irte the. fomidatkn's to Scott's profound study and work In the field of legal inter relations cf the Americas. Dr. Butler, present head of the foundation, has just suggested that the United States should direct the attention ol' belligerents to (heir violation of the Pact of Paris, to which this nalltn Is ft signaory. The educator feels Ihe answers would make interesting reading and that such a step on our part would be one in the direction of bringing "this most dangerous of all wars Ic- a nuick end." 'Hie Carnegie Endowment has helped finance many smaller peace movements, especially in Europe where they had been left .stranded by the .World War. So Andrew Carnegie, the only man ulio ever gave away $350,000 000, was unable to buy peace for the world. Even the foumlatlcn h c left for the promotion of pence is again In a state of more or less suspended animation, as it was in 1914-1918. But, it continues to exist, and In the little French seacoasl (own of La Baule it will carry on as best it can against what Carnegie called "the foulest blot on our civilization"—war.
