THE ASHFORD WILL.
It wns not until .Snmticl Aslifonl know
Hint his Inst hours wore approaching thut
ho cnt for his sinter. Thoy hnil qnnr
rolcl ninny years nrjo, but wlion sho
enmu nml found lilm ho ill sho nursod
him ns tenderly us If ho was Indeed her
3lr. Ashford's old servant, Andrew,
who wns In Ills master's confidence,
grow loquacious wlion naked nbout her
''He hasn't left you a cent, Miss Ash
ford," wns tho unsatisfactory nnswer.
"It's all roiio to an nsylu n. Tho will's
locked up in tho library desk and ho
curries tlio key on a ribbon round his
nock. You may havo noticed 1c."
Sho said nothing at tho time, but re
turned to hor brothel 'osido. Ho wns
Bleeping soundly. Looking at his fuco
Bliu said to liorselfi
"If ho had died without a will alt
would havo been mine. How cruel and
wicked he has been to mo."
Tho key of tho desk hung from a rib
bon oti his neck. Tho tcmplntiou was
Htiong and sbu yielded. Detaching tho
key very softly alio ran fto tho library,
opened tho desk and drov out the crisp
parchment. It wns ovon as Andrew hnil
wild. Her brother loft overy cent of his
money to chailty.
With a muttered exclamation sho put
it back and lcstoicd tho key to its placo
just is tlio sick man was waking up.
Miss Asbford hud como lo her brother
with no thought of his foituue, but
nu.iou5 to bo reconciled, after yenrs of
111-fcclliig, to ono who might bo dying.
Shu kept hev promise, and sat day aftor
doy by his bedside, but there was no
lovo in her licait. Oncoit became so dif
ficult for horto hldo her feelings tliatshc
left him and went out into tho fresh,
cold nlr und walked until sho was ready
to drop. When sho canio back Lemuel,
brighter than ho had seemed beforo, took
both hor hands nnd said, fondly:
"JIarcin, I have wearied you, but it
will not bo long now not long."
That night Lemuel Ashford died. His
dcatli was very quiet. Only JIarcin sat
bcsldn him. Andiow slumbered in his
own room. Tho brother's last words had
".Unrein, I want to tell you about my
will;" but thcro his voico had failed him.
Jlnrciu wished that ho hnd not spoken
nt nil, for oven whilo sho watched death
steal across his features, the thought
sumo into her mind:
"I nin his heiress, his next of kin.
Wcro tho will but destroyed all would bo
And then sho said to herself:
''It shall bo. No ono can suspect mo.
What more naturul thnn tiat he should
torsive nt tho last and destroy it himself?
L will tell tho Ho if need be.''
Then with trembling hands, sho onco
more detached tho koy of tho desk from
lis black ribbon arid crept into tho
library. It was quite dork, but sho
felt her way to tho desk, turned tho key
in tho lock and opened it. Her hands
fumbled with tlio packet for a moment,
then touched a crisp and crackling parch
ment. Sho had no need to read it. She know
it word for word, and hastening to tho
tire, placed It upon tho rod coals, crush
ing it down among them and piling
others upon it.
"Sufo I" sho cried, as sho hurried back
to tho chamber of death. "Safe from
povorty at least."
Then she summoned Andrew.
The man enmo hurriedly and Btood
with wet eyes besido his dead master's
"Gono!" ho sobbed. "Gono, poor
gontlcmanl Ah, this is not tho first of
tho family whoso temper lias been his
death; but ho was a kind-hearted gen
tleman, and liked to do right. Ho told
you about his will, didn't he, ma'am?"
"Do not speak about tho will at such
u time," replied JHss Ashford. "How
bhould I know my brother's plans? AVo
havo bcou strangers for years."
"Ah, poor gentleman," replied An
drew. "You'll find ho was better than
you thinkfar better far better."
But Miss Asbford only hid hor fnco In
"I don't think you do know," said An
drew; "you haven't been told. That's
plain to mo, and I llko to bo tho first to
toll you. Tho day you weio away ho
bent for Lawyer and altered his will
because you'd becu nursing him so
kindly, ho said. A copy of tho ono ho
made n wlillo ago Is In tho lawyers' hands
'tho lawyors connected with tlio asy
lum, you know but that Is no matter.
Ho burnt the ono In the desk thcro and
made another leaving overything to you.
Tho latest dato is nil in a will, you know,
ma'am. Nothing can stnnd boforo that.
And tho asylum pcoplo will bo angry
Miss Ashford sank Into a chair. Tho
servant behoved her gilcf for her brother
had overpowered hor.
Miss Ashford kept her own counsel.
"When tho funeral was over search was
mado for tho will, but It was not found.
No ono suspected the hciross of having
destroyed u document which cndowcil
hor with wealth, nnd many pitied hoi.
but tho trustees of tho asylum Insisted
on their rights, and Marclahad no power
to contest tho will, despite tho lawyer's
assurance that ho could testify lo having
mado a later ono in her favor, for she
was poor, and, moreover, burdened with
u guilty conscience.
Bho returned to hor labors and died
poor, ilcpondont on tho chailty of
And row for shelter in hor last days, and
though tho old man guessed her secret
well, ho kept It to himself for tho honor
of tho family.

AN APPEAL FROM ALASKA
this ouiitAcms co.umittt.d upon
A MnltorTluit Will bo 'nvcAtlgntrd by n
Coiigrrnslntml Committee Tlio Niitlvcit
nf tlm Hcitl Inland Hulil to bo Tieiitad
KtanitlRt Special lo the rout Dltpatch.
Tho rccuut rumors, of which a collec
tion has just been issued from Indianap
olis, concerning outrages committed upon
the Seal Islands of Alnskn, havo a good
foundation, and several prominent news
paper men from tlio, I'ast hnvo been In
tills city during tho past fow days hi an
effort to interview Mr. William Gavilt,
tho special Ticasury ngont, who hns just
returned from that country. Ho hag
dodged thorn at overy turn nnd finally
went oil to Indianapolis, to which point
he wns followed, although ho refused to
give out any information.
But It has just come to light that nn
anpoal to tho American pcoplo fiom the
citizens of Alaska, hns just been received
by one of tho leading statesinon of tills
State, and, by a stioko of good luck, tho
PoM-Ditjiulch representative was allowed
to sec It. It was written in tho Itiihslnn
language, and signed by n largo number
of tho most prominent chiefs and priests
of tlio Aloutinn Islands.
A hasty transaction of tho lengthy
document sets forth the fact Hint' the
Aleuts aro subjected to sucli oppressions
by tlio agents of tho Alnskn Commercial
Company as should make every freeman's
blood boil. They assort that tholr family
ties aro being broken up, their wives and
daughters debauched, and all that is
sacred trampled under foot.
It declares that these employes of tho
Alaska Commercial Company aro, as a
rule, n degraded class of men, who obey
no law of God or man, and who, in their
government of tho natives, discounte
nance virtue and encourage and remuner
ate prostitution. The appeal further
sets foilh the fact that these same bad
men debauch tho publieservieoandmako
tho Government agents bond to their
will by a system of persecutions of tho
They make it profitable- to tho olllcial
who will close his eyes to tlio ovlls that
surround him, und will blacken tho char
acter of nny ono who will antagonize'
them. Thoy. havo tho advantage in
numbers, being nbout livo to ono, and
thus fortified, can ovcrcomo any state
ment mado to tho Treasury Department
by overwhelming counter testimony.
1' or this reason but few complaints nro
nllowed lo reach Washington, and when
thoy do, thoy ato lu somo way. immedi
ately husheef up.
To lnuko themsolvos moro securo thoy
set traps to catch tho olllcial, nnd if ho
persists in not falling into them thoy
hatch up things against him anyway and
declaro that ho furnishes whisky to tho
natives or that ho violates tho homo ol
somo nntlvo, or that ho furnishes sugar
to them, or, in fnct, anything that is
against tlio regulations, Aud when it is
taken into account that tho olllcial is
daily under obligations for transporta
tion, for hotels and for medicine to theso
men, it is seen what a powerful cocrcivo
weapon Is constantly in tho hands of
evil-disposed men of tho Alaska Com
Tho appeal further declared that tho
Aleuts are American citizens who aro
fully entitled to all the rights nnd priv
ileges of such, but that tho system which
now provails In Alaska makes thorn
slaves, with no hope of relief from even
thoj agonts of tho Government sent to
protect their intorests.
It-isayfiithat no Aleuts can havo th,o
Islands, and that consequently they havo
no avenuo of carrying their complaints
and wrongs to tho outside wot Id; that
tho only men in absoluto authority there
aro tholr oppressors; that their best men
are being corrupted by constant contact
with theso evils; that all lnw Is dis
regarded nnd crime nnd cohabitation are
in mad rovclry.
Tlio appeal contains many other facts
regarding tho social and religious con
dition of tho natives, nnd how nn unjust
favoritism is practiced in tlio annual
"divide." Tlioso natives who havo
yielded to the will of tho company's
agents, and brought their wives and
daughters to them, nro rownrded by bo
ing plnced in the higher class, whilo
those who havo antagonized them nro ro
duced In clnss and deprived of their just
dues. As tho company has cntiro con
trol of this feature, nnd as thoy furnish
all supplies to tho natives, it Is easily seen
how arbitrary and opprcsslvo they can
bo, and tho poor havo no possible re
dress. Tho appeal is written very closely on
three pages of foolscap, and has n long
list of queer native names attached
thereto. Soino of them aro signed by
tho natives, but tho majorj.y aro signed
with a cross. V
