If tho men who are fighting n sub

be possible to niter an Intelligent ex

American merchant marine.
It Is remotely possible that tho

may be able to scrape up a majority
of bolters and Democrats and adopt

This seems Improbable, and would bo

and the activity of the foreign-ship

Tho fourth annual and final accounts
of tho Henry Wniorhcmso Trust Co.,
Ltd., administrators of the estnto of
William II. Cornwcll, wero filed this
morning, with the report of John Mar
caltlno, an master, appended. Thcro
Is considerable of a mlx-up In thu ic

thing will be satisfactorily settled.
Tho fourth annual nccounta wero
filed with the master April j I, und

The Henry Watci houso Trust Co.,
ns administrator, cliniges Itself with
tho sum of receipt-- amounting tn $1C,-
S17.S7, nnd asks to be nllnncd the sum
of $11,818.91, for which thuro nro 120
vouchers supporting 'he claim. In tho
master's report on tho third annual
account It was pointed nut that thcru
was a cash balance nf $189.27 In fav
or of tho estate, while oa u matter of
(act tho estate was Indebted to tho ad
ministrator for cninmlsBtons to the
sum of $t,410.29. The ndmlulstrntor'a
commissions arc nai.ted tn tho foiirlh
annual account tn tho cum of $910.10.
In tho will of William 11. Cornwcll.
It Is stated that the Cornwcll ranch
should bo kept In npcintiou until ut
least nvo years subsequent to lilt-.
death, unless, by the unanimous don-
sent of nil tho ln'H'3, It should be sold
pr otherwise disponed nf. Ab tho Ihe
years navo not jei ciapscu u la
claimed by Mnicallino Jlint thu final
accounts of the estnto cannot bo
closed up nt thu present time. How
ever, It may bo that tho unanimous
consent of tho heirs wllubu secured.
At tho request of Marcallino, tho ad
ministrators filed an additional Inven
tor)' to tho original one, which adds
thu sum oT $lo,90..H9 to tho estate.
This, Mnrca'lllno claims, In his lupoit
should have been filed with thu oils-
Innl Inventory. An Item of 33SG0 la all
tho money lecelu'd by Josephonu
Cornwcll from the estate, and which
has been paid back b her. This Is
classed under "allowances," while II

Josephlnu Corn well hai been an at

000 legacy, by reason of nn agreement
with the heirs. In tho finnl accounts

ments ns $l,40C.9G.
A scrlmr question may be raised
with regard to tho nolo of J. S. Wal
ker for $:000, dated October 20, lb89,
payable to Samuel I'nikc-n and en
dorsed by John F. Howler, Sam Park
er and W II, Cornwcll. It was pay
able In six months, but has now come
within the statute of limitations. Mr.
Shingle states, says Mnrcallluo, thnt
Walker claims that thu nolo has been
paid, and that ho (Shingle) can prove
that this Is bo. If the nolo was not
paid, Miuculllno says that the cblato
should hnvo been protected by Judg
ment. Marcallino Is not satisfied In his re
port on tho uccounls that tho nolo has
been paid, aud ho recommends tjiat
tho administrator bo hold responsible
for tho $5000. Again, tho Inventory
called for unsecured notes of J. S.
Walker to tho' amount of $fi,97.'. but
tho administrator has only exhibited
notes In tho sum of $i;i.X
The accounts wero filed In Judge
