by tlie well known Mrs. Myra
Clark Gaines as part ot the
property to which she has
come in jxisaesoiou by the de

about one year ago. Mr. J,
Proctor Morse is the attorney
rcfered to Mr. Gaines thought
that Baltimore would be reluc

therefore sent her attorney, Mr.
W. II. Wilder, to make an im
mediate settlement with the
city. Air. Wildej was at the
mayors- oflice yesterday. Mr.
Wilder stated that the courts
decided that the property sold
by the ci'y was obtained by
John Mc 'Donogh under a fraud

ued at $75,000. Mrs. Gaines'
claim, with interest, for $10,000.
