NOTLEY WILL IS
"Notley wilt dismissed."
This kliort sentence, which whs the text of a cablegram from
Washington, received this morning by Judge Stanley, announces tho
end of tho famous Notley will case, which for a number of yearB
went tho rounds of the local courU, until It Anally landed in Wash
ington, where ,lt has Just now been ended. The decision must have
been given at .noon by tho U. S, Supreme Court, the difference In
time explaining the early hour of tho arrival of the announcement.
The hlstor) of the case Is quits a lengthy one. Chas. Notley,
Sr., died In May, 1902, leaving a will which had been made In 189S.
Under the terms thereof he bequeathed one-sixth of his property
to each of the following persons: Mrs. Notley, tho widow; David
Notley, n son; Maria Hughes, a daughter; Thomas Notley, a son
who Is now at Kalaupapa; Mrs. Danford, a niece; and tme-Bl:;tli to
tho children of Chas. K. Notley. Nothing was left to Chas. Not
With tills will was a codicil, made In April, 1902, or about
thlco weeks before the death of tho testator, In which the original
will was altered In that Mrs. Danford was given the homestead at
I'aaullo, Hamakua, and a life Interest given to the widow In tho cot
Ug3 on this property which Eho hal always used.
Soon after the death of Notlo) his widow and children started a
unit to contest the will on tho giounds that undue Influence had
been brought to bear on the testator by Mrs. Danford. The case
was heard In HIIo beforo Judgo little, who sustained tho will, in
August, 1902. The contestants (Inn appealed for a Jury trial, and
tho caso wan heard In HIIo in January, 1903, beforo Judgo Robin
son and a Jttr The Court Instructed the Jury to return n erdlct

From thli the contestants appealed to the Supreme Court which
In March, 1904 sustained Judge Robinson's pctlon. Later on the
Supreme Court denied two motions for n rehearing filed by the con
testants In Ms)JS04. and July. 1904. Tho contestants ,ttmn brought
a writ of error to Uio Supremo Court of tho Territory, which' was
quashed In April, 190R. As the Oiganlc Act was amended In March,
1905, so that It allovcd appeals to tho U. S. Supremo Court In
cases where Jf.OOO or over was Involved, tho contestants sued out a
writ of error to the U. S. Supreme Court, and It Is this writ, which,
according to the cablegram, has been dismissed.
Throughout the caso Judgo Stanley has appeared for Mrs. Dan
ford ami W A. Kinney nnd his associates for tho contestants. Judge
Stanley has Just returned fiom Washington, where ho argued on the
merits of the ense. He was assisted by Mr. Browne, of Urltton &
Gray, who argued on questions of Jurisdiction. Mr. Morao of Uos

The estate which has caused this long and bitter contest. Is of
considerable value. It was valued at about 1350,000 when the In
