JtKMOIlIAIi TITLE GONE
A report fl'M 1n Supreme Court
ty pnoenlx lngrahnm n referee In a
imtt graving out of conflicting Inter
pretations of tho will of .Tames Hood
Wright, the philanthropist, who died In
November. 1R!U, finds that the New
York Public Library Is entitled lo f 100,
000 front the estate find that the Knlck
erlioeker Hospital, formerly tho J. Hood
Wright Hospital, nt Amsterdam avenue
nil 131ft street, should tret $580,000
from the estate.
The chief mutter In dispute was tho
UOO.OOO bequest to the rid Washington
HelgWs Library, which woe merged with
the New York Public Library nftcr
Mr. Wright's death. There was differ
ence of opinion as to whether tho New
York Public Library when It took over
the Washington Height Library became
entitled to the bequest.
Tho case wns referred to Sir. Ingpa
ham, as referee on the application of
Sirs. .Mary It. Wright, the widow, when I
.... ....... i.. i .. uii...
"UI -u,,r- "
Drill ivrigm. sinter ot tnc pmianiurupisi,
made It mcossary to distribute tho ,
reslilu.iry estate, held In trust during
her lifetime. Sllss Wright's share In the
estite consisted of the Income for life
from one-thlid of the residuary estate,
the whole amounting to JSSu.uOO. After
her death various legacies, Including the
lino.OOO library bequest, were to be
julil. and the remainder turned over to
the Knickerbocker Hospital, which was
known as the Manhattan Dispensary
during Mr. Wright's lifetime, and was
called the J. Hood Weight Hopltnl In
his menhr. The name was changed
again several years ago so a to attract
support from other sources, because the
Income from the Wright estate was In
ainclent to meet the hospital expenses.
The referee's report shows that legacies
of IHO.Oflft have been paid and that the
trustees hold I6S0.000 to dlsnose of un-!
trustees hold J6S0.000 to dispose of un
rier (he order of the exurt.
One of the feiturea of the report Is
the stipulation between the ,irtles to
the action that "the region known as
the Washington Heights extends tom
UStli street to liflth street, and from
Iht west side of Kdgecombe nvenue to
the Hudson Itlver."

Stained Olns Wlnilmv In Her
Honor at oiiihaiiiiton.
Southampton', N, Y Aug. 8. At
th morning service at St. Andrew's
Church a beautiful stained glass win
dow, placed In the church during the
last week, was dedicated to the mem
ory of Mies Josephine Churchill Nlcoll,
daughter of Sir, and Sirs. De I-ancey
Nlcoll The Hev. Dr. Carl Helland
of St. George's Church. New York, con
ducted this service, which was a most
Impressive one. It was made more im
pressive by the fact that It was Dr.
rtcllaiid who read the burial service
at Miss Nlcoll's funeral.
Dr. Helland was called to preach
t St, Andrew's to-da, not knowing
of the dedication. On learning of the
memorial window he did not preach the
sermon he ln.l prepared. Instead he
took his place by the window, which
decorated with American Resiuty
roes, and conducted the dedication.
The window waa designed and made
by th Tiffany Studios through the ef
forts of Miss Margaret K. Trevor, daugh
ter of Mr. and Mrs. Henry (I, Trevor,
