NEW YORK, April 26.--Mrs Georgia
C Balch, widow of Collins L. Baloh, a
wealthy manufacturer of celluloid, today
won the will contest that she brought
against her daughter, Grace C. Balch. A
Jury in the supreme court set aside the
will of Mr. Balch upon the ground that
he was incompetent to make a will in

remain there until her cousin, Harland
FI. Sweot of I.,os Angeles, got a hearing
for her in rourt and st her free. Mrs.
Balch at once arranged with Joseph
Lesser, her attorney, to ttaxt tho tight
to break the will:
The Balch contest has be-ri conspicuous !
for the bitterness of the relations between 1
mother and daughter. Mrs. Balch testi
fled that she had concealed for many 1
years, for reasons of family pride, the '
fact that Grace had ill-treated her and i
subjected her to many kinds of abuse. 1
Jt was not until Grace mentioned the al- ,

Tribune at the prison yesterday, ids eyes
were clear, his hands steady and his voice

lenRe lines in his face that plainly told
the strain under which the slayer of J.
Walter Axtell was laboring.
Neither in attitude, tone nor gesture
was there any indication of clinging des
perately to a last straw of hope that he
might secure, a reprieve or a commutation
of sentence; nor. on the other hand, was
there to be ?pPn any of tbr palpable
