HAS INHERITED A FORTUNE
thu Death of ii n Uncle A Itler I'nRl-
uuer Mtiiln ltlcli.
I'AliKKitsnuito, W. Va., Dec. 22. Har
ly last summer James A. Wilson, tho
well known river engineer, of Belpre,
received word from Columbus, Ind.,
that his uncle, James II. Wilson, had
died very suddenly. Nothing was
thought of this particularly as Mr. Wil.
son had not seen his undo since boy
hood. A few days ago ho again received
news which tended to put him in the
best of spirits. The letter btated that
the dead undo had left an estate valued
at ?30.400 but hail left no will. Mr.
Wilson at onco put tho matter in tho
hands ot an attorney and it has now
been ascertained that he is the closest
relative and will therefore got tho
property. As tho wheels of tho Indiana
courts grind slowly ho will probably
not get his money before tho middle of
next year. It has been learned that
59,400 of tho property is in gold and
tho remainder consists of stocks and
Tho deceased had nover married and
nono of his relatives had known any
thing of him for years. The heir to
the money is well known in rivor circles
in this city having run on all of tho
boats in tho local trade. Ho is a hard
working old boldlcr and tho fortune
which ho now conies into possession of
will enable him to end his days in
peace and plonty.
