A WIND FALL.
W. S. Hoskins, a San Antonio
One of the Heirs ton Cool Billion Dollars-Hit
Lineage, and a History of
A few weeks ngn Mr. James Usher,
of New York, had an advertisement In
the I.tnur In regnrd to the liclrs of an
Immense estate In Kttglaml, anil Mr. W.
H. Ilosklns, who for several years has
been a telegraph operator In this city
and Laredo, and who Is now private
secretary to Division Su lerlntendent
Van Vleck, of the .Sunset railroad, and
who Is well known to many of our peo
ple, having read the advertisement of
Mr. Usher, eatne Into tho olllcc and
wished to get n Mr. Usher's address It
proved that Mr. IInklns was one oftho
world-renowic'l Chase helra, recently
reinstated In their rights In Kngland.
Somewhat over UK) years ago, Lord
Townly, a ery wealthy Kngllsh Lord,
was accused of some political Intrigue,
and owing to tho high state of excite,
incut was summsrlly brought In trial,
oanvlctcd and executed. Ills four broth
ers, who were his only survivors of di
rect lineage, were fully satlelled of the
Injustice of the proceedings, hut were
also' under oil " pic Ion and unablo In do
anything In clearing their Inuoeent
brother oftho stain of treason, or save
from confiscation the immense e.tntrs
then counted at S'.ViO.IIOfl.llOi). Three of
them, William, Thomas and Aiiiillu, in
order to escape from the popular preju
dice came to Massachusetts. The otic that
remained In England Iminedlatelr ser to
work to clear up the nainn of the de
ceased, Lawrence Chase, tlm family
nnme of the dead Lord Hut ( 1 1 1 1 -t 1 In
lluencn was against him. and the said
brother In Kngland died without Isstn-,
leaving tho brothers In AmTiei and
their descendents the sole heirs. Their
own Idea was lo regain their rights,
which cost them thousands upon thou
sands of dollars, and which their chil
dren were charged with continuing.
Tho descendents of Lord Townley
have held many meetings to continue
the prosecution oftho claim, and llnally
after the lapse nt more than ncenturv,
unci when tho heirs Increased to about
WK). nn act was passed through the
llrttlsh Parliament on August I, 1Sk.",
that Lawrence Townley was unjiittly
convicted and executed, nnil that his
helrsbe given a limited time to prove
lineage and claim the estate that has
grown to over a cool billion of dollars In
money and London renl estate. Claim
lawyers were then on tho qui vlve fur
said lucky heirs, with the abnve men
tioned result of lindlng Mr, llssklns In
this city. Whllu theso 8 0 heirs
are scattered all over the Uni
ted States, the great majority
are yet In the old liny Stale. Among
those known to bo In Texas are (jcorge
11. Chase, of the Chase Trading Com
pany, and his nephew. K. K. Chase, of
Chase & Nicholson, of Fort Worth, and
W. S. Ilosklns. orihls cltv. In St. Louis
are L. S. Austin and I'.. Snpplngton, and
Ueorge W. I'eck, of Peek's un. Is also
an heir. This vast estate, If evenly
divided among 800 heirs, would be
$1,250,000 to each claimant A meeting
of the heirs living In the West ts called
to take place at the Laclede Hotel, St.
Louis, at 1 o'clock on December 1. Mr.
W. S. Hoskins' lineage runs as follows:
William CIibso came from Knglnnd nnd
settled In Massachusetts; Alice, his
daughter, married a Southwick; .Inims
Southwlck, son of Alice; Charlotte
Southwick, daughter of James, married
ft Hoskins, nnd William Southwick Hos
kins, son of Charlotte, who Is the heir
residing In this city. It is the sincere
wish nt the Ltnur and the many friends
of the genial Ilosklns that the Kngllsh
courts will nnt so long dolav In ndut
Ing that long-deferred act of Justice as
to cheat him of the enjoyment of this
little fortune or$l,2.-0,00i), ami that from
private secretary he may yet climb up
to presidency of the glgantlo Central and

Colonol T. W. Pclrce's Will.
A Iloston special gives tho following
regarding the curious complications
over the will of the late Colonel Pclroe:
The will of Thomas W. Pelrce, the
railway millionaire, wns proved in the
Probate Court nt Salem to-day, and
shortly after Ivory W. M. Pelrce, u shoe
maker or Lynn, appeared with connsel,
and, claiming to be u son or Mr. Pelrce
by a former marriage, petitioned for nn
equitable division of tho etale. He wns
not mentioned in the will, and there
will be either a contest or a compromise.
l'eirce's claim brings lu light a strnngc
bit of family history. Colonel Pelrce
left ft son and a daughter, who were sup
posed to constitute his entire family,
and to each gnve a million dollars
and more. The claimant says that
he was born In Sanford, Me., In 1830, nt
the home of his mother's father. Ills
mother, he said, never lived with his
father, as he was alwajstold, beuauseol
some family dllllculty prior to his birth.
Thesoti states that he lived with his
mother at hla grandfather's until he was
II or 10 years old, and then wns put out
to h family tinmed Monlton. wlili whom
he lived until he wns 18. His mother
married again, and when he became of
age no ciemnmicu or lier bis history.
She told him she met Colonel
Pelrce nt Dover. New Hampshire, und
that they wereegi lv married. The rela
tor then wentlo Pein e and told lliiismrv.
and was acknowledged as a legitimate
son. From that time until he died the
Colonel paid him a liberal allowance, but
never acknowledged him as his son.
Ivory says that be was asinnlshed tntlml
that he was not mentioned In the will
nrter what his father had many times
said to him. unless a tlauan which irliwi
