      Plot Evarts' Family Lot

      Windsor - Maxwell Evarts, general counsel for the Southern Pacific Company died at his home here today, aged 51 years. He had been in failing health for three years. His home (Juniper Hill Farm) was in Windsor, Vermont, a stately manor overlooking Lake Runnemede and his family's compound.

      Maxwell Evarts was a son of the late William M. Evarts, of New York, who was Secretary of State in President Hayes? Cabinet. He was graduated from Yale University in 1884, and received a thorough education as a lawyer. For many years he was associated with Charles B. Tweed, counsel for Colis P. Huntington, of the Southern Pacific.

      He was an organizer of the State National Bank of Windsor, and was also vice-president of the Windsor Machine Co., half owner of the Amsden (Vt.) Lime Co., president of the Vermont State Fair Association, a governor of the Morgan Horse Club, and president of the Vermont Fish and Game League. He was a member of the Vermont House of Representatives in 1906.

      He advanced through various positions and when E. H. Harriman died and Judge Robert S. Lovett became head of the Harriman system, Mr. Evarts was made general counsel. With the recent unmerging of the Union Pacific and Southern Pacific he became counsel for the Southern Pacific.

      Although he devoted most of his life to the railroad service, he traveled little. Among the Portland people who knew him are: J. D. Farrell, president of the O.W.R. & N. Co.; W. W. Cotton, consul for the O. W. R. & N. Co., and C. W. Fulton, ex United States Senator.

      (From the Oregonian, Portland, OR, October 8, 1913.)
