Germany Begins Paying For
Catastrophe Of Lusitania
Elbert Hubbard Heirs Get 557,000.
Thirteen Years After
i By Robert Dutcher, NEA Service
Washington.—More than 13
years ago the German embassy
here advertised in the newspa
pers a warning to Americans
against sailing through the war
tone on British ships.
That was the beginning of the |
story of the Lusitania, which was j
torpedoed six days later near Ire
land with loss of 124 Americans,
whose deaths proved the greatest
single factor in pushing us into war ,
The incident is now being closed.
It was within a week or two of May
7, the thirteenth anniversary of the
Lusitania catastrophe, that the heirs
and survivors of the American vic
tims began to receive the $2,500,000
damages awarded them by the
mixed claims commission against
Most oi the money has been paid
and the rest will be doled out as
fast as the remaining successful
claimants file their applications j
with the treasury under provision of
the war claims act. That act pro
vided for immediate payment of all
death and personal injury claims
and all claims are being paid by
installments. The money will really
come from Germany, but as it is ,
being collected over a 75-year per
iod under the Dawes plan, congress
decided to take care of the Ameri
can claimants while some of them
remained alive. 1
The mixed claims commission,
under the umpireship of Judge Ed
win B. Parker of Texas, started out
with nearly 12,500 claims for an ag
gregate of nearly $1,500,000,000. It
scaled them down to awards of
about $200,000,000. With one Amer
ican and one German member, plus
Parker, it handled both American
claims and those of Germany for
war-seized property of her na
Four millions were awarded for
384 American death and personal
injury claims, the greater part of
this involving the Lusitania fatali
These Lusitania awards were
made strictly on the basis of what
the death of a passenger meant in
financial loss to their heir.
* For the death of Mr. and Mrs.
Elbert Hubbard the heirs received
$57,500—$25,000 to Elbert Hubbard
II, $7500 to Katherine Hubbard and
$25,000 to Miriam Hubbard. Elbert
and Katherine were children by
Hubbard's first marriage; Miriam
by his second. Elbert and Miriam
were heirs to Hubbard’s $400,000 es
tate. Two sons of the first marriage,
Ralph and Sanford, were awarded
nothing by the commission because
their father had not contributed to
their support for a long time before
The estate of Alfred G. Vander
bilt entered a $250,000 claim and
was not allowed anything. Vander
bilt had spent nearly $300,000 a
year on himself and family, but he
had left $15,000,000 to his widow and
two children and it was shown that
he had not been adding to his es
tate. Hence the decision that his
death was no financial loss to the
Aged sisters of Charles Frohman,
the unmarried theatrical producer
said to have died with the assertion
that death was life’s most beautiful
adventure, filed a claim which was
also denied on similar principle.
The commission felt no relief was
needed, as Frohman's movie stock
holdings had increased in value.
The two sons of Charles Klein,
another producer who went down,
are receiving $50,000 They were
born in America and Klein had fil
ed his papers for American citizen
ship before his death. Mrs. Klein
got nothing, as she was a British
subject, and still is.
White Robe, Request
Before Irvin Died
Isaac Irvin had his request filled
last week when he was taken to
Georgia, his former home for in
terment. Mr. Irvin, an aged citi
zen living on Roy Crowder's planta
tion in No 8 township had repeated
ly requested that he be buried in a
home-made casket and that his
body be wrapped in a white robe
and nothing else. When he was
prepared for burial, members of the
family and friends saw to it that
these requests were adhered to.
Mr. Irvin was a very religious
man and for special reasons wanted
to be buried in this manner. His
remains were taken to his Georgia
home for burial.
