Acting under specific instructions from
Attorney General Wlckeraham. Assistant

ness letter, which read: "The currency
Is for cigars. The benefit McLurg is
said to have expected to derive from
the "donation was an extension of
time In which to file the reports on
the locomotive boilers on the Monroe dc
Southwestern lines. '
Officials who Investigated Mr. Mo
Lurgs standing in Monroe, found him a
highly respected gentleman who could
see nothing wrong in offering any one S10
for a favor.
The Inspector to whom the money was
sent however, called It to the attention
of the Attorney General, who at once
became interested. In a personal letter
to Monroe officials, he Insisted that the
case be presented to the grand Jury.
He said. In the letter, that he did not
know If this had been the practice of
railroad men. but that If It bad been.
It was now time for hl department to
break it up. Chief Clerk Lester Slsler,
of the Boiler Inspection Bureau, was the

Probate Court ta hasten the proceedings
In connection with the settlement of the

Charles W. Fralley and Walter S.
Hutchlns, two of the executors of the

delay which has ensued In the litigation
and lay the blame for the tlm ct numed
on Lee Hutchlns, who filed a caveat

submitted Issues to be tried by a Jury

ing or of the mental condition of Stllson
Hutchlns. They ask the court to dismiss
the caveat and proceed to the admission

piea the application of Mrs. Hutchlns for
a special appeal rrom the ruling of Jus
tice Barnard refusing to direct the trus
tee of the Hutchlns estate to pay the
widow CM0 monthly out of the rents of
the real estate.

permit for the purpose of having dirt
hauled to a dump on the Ord tract but
