Sealed Verdict of the Jury- Set
tles the Contest.
SANE WHEN. HE MADE IT
Him Tlie Question of Fraud Was
, Not Involved Judge Cox's Charge
Concerning -Tills Feature The
Property Is Worth 950,000.
The Jury In the contest over the will of the
late James 13. Young, made by his brother,
Thomas E. Young, this morntngbroughtln
a sealed verdict sustaining the will.
Tuelrnnswere wero that Mr. Young was
of sound nilndwhen tbe will wasiuade.and
no'undue influence was exerted upon him.
The question of rrnud was not really In
voked, though a formal answer was made
that no fraud was practiced.
A. L. Worthingtou, In closing Uie case for
Thoruas Young, said the will of James E.
Young was made ata time when Mr. Young
was no longer, able to sign his own name.
The signature was by proxy.
. JIE COULDN'T BEMEMUEB .
For months James Young bad been
practically demented. He couldn't remem-
1 ber whether he bad eaten bis dinner and
would demand a second diuuer fifteen
hmlnutes after lie had finished a lienrty
meal. .He.. taw the phantom of old Dr.
Gray at night; quarreled with bis neigh
bors; -shot one-in tho foot; struck Dr.
Cotter over the bead with a board; went
about shooting and striking man and beast
with a yindlctlvcness that could come
only out "or a disordered mind.
Then, it was claimed Mr. Young was
always shrewd about his business af
fairs. The truth was he did all sorts of
wild things. lie paid a negro boy $1.25 a
day for half an hour's work. The boy
ti stifled that he thought it was funny,
but It "was soft enough -snap for him,"
and he said nothing.
BEFORE HIS DEATH.
ror'tioFe'tliol'a jear before his death
Mr. Young couldu'.,tget hison n money from
the Bank of Washington, without an order
'from "brother Bill" or somebody else.
Judge Cole, charging the Jury, said It was
agreed by both parties there was no .fraud,
and the Jury hould,answer the statutory
interrogatory on that point, "No." For
the rest the burden of proof -n as upon the
party attempting to break the will. Tho
law presumed mental soundness on the pa rt
of the testator till the opposite was proved.
Mr. Young died October 19, 1892, and
his will was made October 1, preceding.
The testator lived In Virginia and bad re
tired from business here a number of years
before his death. He had a quarrel with his
brother Thdmas.'-Hls property, worth S50,-
000, was left to his brothers, Yvni. A.
Young and the late John M. Young, to Mrs.
Margaret L. Gaddls, a niece, with small
bequests to others.

AIDING THE ASSESSORS
Prominent Citizens Urge an Exten
rion of Time for Them.
Every Probability That tho Commis
sioners Will Auk Coiigrr-.ii to
Authorize) It to Be Done.
The request of the board of assistant as
sessors f o r an extension of the. time- for com
pleting its work of reassessment had an
able second this morning from three promi
nent property holders, Messrs. H. A. WiUard,
John Joy Edson, and Jesse-Wilsou, who
called to confer with the Commissioners
concerning the proposition.
Tbe conference was private, and lasted
more than an hour, and the matter was
thoroughly canvassed, wiUi Judge MorseU
of the board ot assistant assessors preent.
In a recent letter to the assessor, and by
him strongly indorsed to the Commis
sioners, tne assistant, assessors called
attention to tbe situation and asked that
Congress be asked to extend tbe time to
Jane 30, 1896.
They eite tbe fact that slnco"3farcu 28,
1895, tbey have been continuously In the
field, except when engaged tn the cxtise
duties and leaving out about. fte weeks
In which they were engaged In assessing
new buildings. Tbe law as passed requires
that tbe board shall, on or before the first
Monday in January, 1896, make and de
liver to the assessor a return in tabular
form of tbe amount, description, and
value ot the real property subject to be
listed for taxation. Ihls valuation shall
be determined from aetual view of each
separate tract or lot.
The board says to do this will be
physically impossible, and hence the re
quest for the extension.
No serious detriment to property Interests
can ensue, and this fact was emphasized
by the gentlemen who called on the Com
It is shown that the returns for the city
proper can be completed In time and the
only result will be to postpone the pay
ment of the No ember installment of taxes
qn county realty, making the entire annual
payment come due in May following.
There are 69 1-2 square miles of territory
to be canvassed by the assessors and, as
stated, the law requires each separate
piece of realty to be,exauilned separately.
The Commissioners nave not yet Indicat
ed what tbey propose to elo In the matter,
but there Is every probability-that the re
quest for tbe extension will be made to
