and moved iu tbe highest circles of society
here for manj years She is of medium
height, lithe, graceful of figure, and quick,
nervous moemeat. Sbe was in her jouth a
brilliant and vivacious woman. She is now
faded aud broken, poorly dressed, and might
be taken for a seamstress. Her faraih have

TWO DECISIONS AFFIRMED.
Joseph Parish's Contract with His Dauch-
tcr nlid Against His Creditors link
er must Account to Cummiiigs.
Two opinions woro banded down in the
court of appeals jesterday. Ono was in the
cise of the judgment creditors of Josoph N.
Parish ngalust Jonas H. McGowan.
In 1870 Emily E. Parish, a daughtor of
Jo3oph N. Parish, was eighteen years old,
and wanted to go to work in a government
oflieo. But hor mother was ill nud her father
promlsod her if sho would stay with them ho
would piy hor $C0 a month. Though a poor
man, ho had clnims against tho government
from whioh ho expected to realize consider
She agreed and took faithful care of the
home. In 1SS6 ho received on his claims from
tho goverument ?51,000 and paid his
daughter 5,000 on the contract. In 1839 he
received 318 500 more and paid her 2.000
more. Parish was largely in debt aud attor
neys and creditors got nearly all the monoy
from his claims. But in 1887 ho bought a
dwelling, whith was deeded to Jonas II. Mc
Gowau as truslee, and by McGou.iu to Emily
Purish. Ihevnlue of tho houso was tO.OOO.
Parish's creditors brought suit to have tho
houso sold und the money distributed to
themselves. After a thorough-going trial
Chief Justice Bingham, of the supremo eourt,
denied their demand
Iu his opinion jeslorday Chief Justice
Alvey afllrmod Justice Bingham's doeision,
Justice Morris concurring and Justice bhep
ard dissenting. The question of most weight
in tho case appears to bo hether the burden
of the proof on the question of fraud in the
contract between Parish and his daughter
lies with tho judgment creditors or with Par
ish. Justice Alvej and Morris hold that it is
upon the ereditors, Justices Shepurd, that it is
'I he two agreeing judges maintain that,
while tho contract between father aud diugh
ter was never recorded, and while the girl
was confused while on the witness stand,
there remains much doubt as to whether nny
fraud was practiced, and for the creditors to
recover fraud must be clearly shown. Judyo
Shepard sajs that tho failure to record the
contract, and the faet that Parish was in
solvent in 187G mako it impossible for him to
agree to the decision.
Iho second was in the case of Henry M.
Baker against Horace S. Cummings. Tho
two were partners iu a claim business and
Baker bought certain elaims from Cummings
for $15,000 Cummings discovered, as he
thought, that in pajing the ?15,000 Baker
was using not his own monej,but tho firm's
inonej. Ho brought suit for an accounting
and full pnvment of his claim. 'Ihia was
granted and Baker took an appeal. In affirm
ing the decision of the lower court Chief Jus
tice Alver incorporates the opinion of Judge
Hagner in his own opinion. He finds the
rulings entirely correct and tho decision just.

Martha Washington. Tho fracas occurred
in an alley between Seventh and Eighth aud
S and T streets corthwost, and in a few mo

and a small riot was thro itencd.
During tho moleo somo one whistled for an
officer and Folej. of tho Eighth precinct, re

make an arrest but eaught the wrong man.
Augustus Washington, a brother of the young
woman iu tho affrav , was standing near by,
but took no part in the fistic encounter.
'iho officer was not aware of this fact and
bade Washington aceompanj him to the sta
tion. The pair had onlj reached tho corner
oi the alley when the prisoner concluded that
as a free Amonenn citizen he had eertaln
rights and determined to assort them. Ac
cordingly he resisted the efforts of the officer
to escort him to tho station. Toley was not
going to lose his man and, according to Mrs.

time Mrs. Brown had been carried to her

found last night, but it is said in bis defense
he will claim that he did not strike either
Washington or Mrs. Brown.
