When Mamie L. Hourke died, soma

Robert E. Hourke, it seems, was a
very poor business manager, to say
the least. Instead of multiplying un
der his skillful manipulation, the es
tate money steadily disappeared, and
when he was through as executor,
$50,000 of the estate had-vanished.
It Is said that he Invested this sum
In wild-cat mining schemes, but no
one seems to know lust exactly what
did become of It, the fact remaining,
however, thut It went somewhere.
Of the $10,000 or $12,000 which
then remained, all 'but $3,666 rhui

estate for the total amount at the
time of tho death, of Mamie Bourke,
or. In other words, the estate, '.now
valued at about $3,000, Is taxable
at $60,000. If the contention of tho
Territory Is sustained, It will mean
that the minor heirs, who may grow

good-sized fortune, will And they
