DIFFICULT QUESTIONS AT ISSUE.
Inrlndlnic Immortality or the Soul and
l'e of Masses for the Dead.
Buffalo, May 11. The surrogate of
Erie county will be compelled to pass upon
the question of the immortality of the
soul, by reason of a will contest just
brought in his court. List January Mrs.
Catharine Backus died leaving (1,000 ia
the bank and several adult children. In
her will she bequeathed the whole sum in
trust to Nicholas Dashman, to be used by
him to pay for masses for the benefit of
the soul of deceased and her husband.
The children have contested the will, their
attorney raising the point that the soul of
Mrs. liackus cannot receive any benefit
The. ingenious legal light goes on to ar
gue that even if the souls of Mrs. Backus
and her husband could be benefited by
masses a soul has no standing iu a tem
poral court and the trust 1 illegal because
it is not for the benefit otfHmy human be
ing; that the soul is not subject to proof,
and that any trust for theietiefit of some
thing which may not eveitiicist is not war
ranted in law. That ia jauy event the
money would not actually' go to the soul,
but to some church, and that not even the
church is designated, thus giviug the trus
tee too much discretionary power.
BAD STATE OF AFFAIRS.
Chickasaw Nation Itnnkrnpt High Offi
cial t'mler Indictment.
Tishomingo, I T., May 10. The Chicka
saw national treasury is empty and the
schools and academies will have to sus
pend. Court jurors and witnesses will
have to take national scrip for pay. The
district judge, attorney general and gov
ernor are under indictment for malfeas
ance in office and embezzlement. The gen
eral election, which takes place biennially
comes oft next August.
Much importance isattached to the elec
tion on account of the pitiable state of
affairs internally. Tho Wolf party or
progressives have nominated I'. S. Mor-
ley lor governor and F; T. Waito for at
torney general. Mr. Morley is a highly
educated, full-blooded Indian and the
present delegate to ' ashington. The
Hyrd party or "pull-backs" have nomi
nated for governor W. M. L. liyrd of
tonewall. and for attorney general Judge
