The Wisconsin law permits a lenefit
certificate to be made payable to le
gal beirs-" Fred Johnson, of Deli-
lielJ. Wis., who died Dec. IS. had hi9
certificate uiide payable to "legal
heirs." He is survived by two broth
ers, one sister and one half sister. It
is asserted that bis half sister is not a
legal heir. Both of Johnson's parents
died some time ago, and in the divis
ion of the estate at that time the pro
bate court held that the half sister
was not a legal heir, but in the present
instance prominent attorneys contend
that she is entitled under the law to
her share. If the board dees not care
to decide, settlement will probably be
made through the general attorney in
For the week ending the 6th inst
