CAPITAL CITY GLEANINGS.
Wnnaraaker at Work Defining a Lottery
Washington- Citv, Oct. 4. It is well
known that the postmaster general is
strongly in favor of the establishment of
a postal savings bank, and it is believed
his next Annual report will advocate the
adoption of the plan which may seem to
him the most practicable, to carry out at
the present time. When Mr. Wanamaker
addresses himself again to congress he
will no doubt give it the benefit of his
investigations into the practicability of a
reduction of the present letter postage to
1 cent. He will find a strong point in his
favor in the comparison wit h the reduc
tion of postage made in from 3 to 2
cents, which eventually resulted in an
Increase instead of a reduction of faceipts.
This reduction, if made, would pnt this
country ahead of England's penny post
age, as the rate would then be equivalent
to half-penny postage.
The Antl-I.nl tery Law.
Washington Citv, Oct. 4. In a circu
lar of instructions to postmasters regard
ing the recently enacted anti -lottery law,
the postoflice department sends the fol
lowing definition of the term lottery:
The term 'lottery,' as used in this act,
embraces all kinds of schemes, general or
local, for the distribution of prizes by lot
or chance, such as gift exhibitions, enter
prises, oreoncerts. raffles, orthedrawing of
prizes in money or property ut fairs.
Hence letters, postal cards and circulars
concerning them, and newspapers, pam
X'hlets and other publications containing
advertisements of them are unmailablu."
Change in the I'otoHice Department.
Washington. Citt, Ol 4 Postmaster
General Wanamaker intends to make im
portant changes in the administration of
the posroflice department. He wants to
bring all tbe offices that have to do with
the transportation of mails under one
head and when Mr. J. Lowrie Bell, at pres
ent the superintendent of the railway mail
service, takes charge of the second assist
ant postmaster-generalship, the railway
mail service will lie placed under his con
trol. The present organization of that
service, however, will lie maintained.

New York. Oct. 4. A party of military
men went down the hay yesterday with
Collector Khrbardt (who was the repre
sentative of President Harrison) to meet
the Cotnte de Paris, w ho had arrived on
the Germanic. In the party wera Gens.
But tei field, Fitz John Porter, Siocum,
Key, Howard, Newton, Parke, Beirne,
Martin T. McMahon, and CoL Coppinger.
After going aboard of the Germanic Col
lector Khrhardt and his party proceeded
to the man saloon, where the Comte de
Paris. Comte D'Haussonville, and Col.
D'Parseval were met. After exchanging
salutations Collector Krhardt said: "I
am instructed by the president and gov
ernment of the United States extend to
you a hearty welcome to these shores aud
also every courtesy, which I am very
much pleased to do."
The Comte' Reply.
The Comte de Paris, in reply to the col
lector, said: 'I thank you for this mark
of honor. It gives me great pleasure to
make another viait to America, and I ap
preciate highly the compliment paid me
by the president, through yon. It is a very
great honor." A'l the military men pres
ent had been comrades of the comte when
he was with the Army of the Potomac
during the war, and the exchauge of
greetings was cordial and affecting. The
comte shook hands with his old friends
again and again.
Congratulated Fits John Porter.
To (fen. Fitz John Porter he aaid: "I
am glad to see yon installed in your orig
inal position." Epying Gen. Keyes the
compte rushed over to him, exclaiming:
".MiMleBr general, how do you do? You
look younger every time I see you."
Sneaking to Gen. liowant of the
battle of Gettysburg the compte
said: "General, that was a difficult posi
tion you held there." General Howard:
"Yes, it was, and the work there was as
hot as any I ever saw." Recalling experi
ences of the war for the Union the party
steamed away for the city and in a short
time the dUtinguiahed visitors arrived at
their hotel. They will travel about the
country for some time viewing points of

A Plasterer Who Wa More Partienlar
New Yoick, Oct. 4 Joseph Byron, an
Kugiishman, whose trade is that of a
plasterer, says he is uuable to secure
work in this city. Jersey City, or Brook
lyn liecause he is an agnostic. This is his
story: "I came here I nun England last
May, and wanted to join the Plasterers'
union at once I sttlHd down in east
New York and sent in my applicatiou to
the lying Island Plasterers' association.
On Wed tie-day night I was to have been
initialed. I entered the hall where the
association met and the president told
me to bland up and face tbe men. I
Cmislstency Wa Bad for Him.
"'Xow,' he said, 'hold up your right
hand and repeat after me: "I, Joseph By
ron, do declare iu the presence of my
God " I let my hand drop when he
aid these words, nnd told him that I
couldn't tnke that oath. I was willing to
declare or to solemnly affirm, but as I
don't liel eve in religion I couldn't swear.
They told me to get out of the room aud
paid me back my money. There were a
few Americans there who stood up for me,
but most of the menitvrs are Irish Roman
Catholics nnd ther objectei. The asso
ciation notified the New York aud Jersey
City plasterers' unions not to admit me,
and. as these unions control the trade I
can't get work anywhere."
An Indictment That Was No Good.
New York, Oct. 4. A peculiar episode

! Views of Gambling Taken by Clergy-
men la Knglafid.
oLoNHON, Oct. 4. The Congregational
Union, in session at Swansea, and the
Church congress, sitting at Hull, have
both placed on record their solemn con
demnation of gambling, which they de
plore as one of the greatest and most
widespread evils with which Christianity
has to cope. But whila thus agreeing
Upon the main question the two ecclesias
tical bodies develop a marked variance in
their judgment in regard to certain prac
tices which are generally regarded by tbe
laity as coming under the general defini
tion of gambliug, namely: The lotteries
which are so common a feature of enter
tainments gotten up for the benefit of
churches and their auxiliary organiza
tions. They Make a Distinction.
The Congregational union includes
these trials of chance in ita category ol
forbidden things and urges its churches
not to bring scandal upon religion and
cherish a cause of stumbling by sanction
ing them. The Church co- grecs, on tba
other hand, throws the mantle of charity
around such lotteries as are conducted
wholly with a pious object in view and
in connection with which no profits ac
crue to individuals. They are treated sim
ply aa aniu-ements, which attract revenue
to the good cause and do not give ries to
the unholy passions and the disastrous con
nequt.iices involved in ordinary gambling.

A PUBLIC BEQUEST ENDANGERED.
I' puted Relatives of the Dead Clitr.i
goan to IteglD a Suit for About 9.5O0,
IIOO, Which the Testator Left for the
Public Good The Tilden Case Cited as
Similar by the -Contestant. But de
clared Different by the Other Side.
Chicago, Oct. 4 When the will of the
late John Crerar was admitted to probate
ne rl v a year ago there seemed no earthly
possibility of any dispute as to thi dispo
sition of tbe estate of the millionaire. Kv
erj bequest was as squarely set forth as it
was possible for words to express it, and
the great bequest for the John Crerar H
brttry was, as far as the ordinary mind
could jndge, hemmed in with every con
ceivable safeguard against the possibility
of its being misapplied. But. despite all
thtse precautions it now appears more
thr n likely that a lawsuit will shortly lie
be;un for the purpose of nullifying tho
will and canceling the magnificent gifts
which it was Mr. Crerar's intention should
ac me to this city after his death.
The People Who Wnnt a Share.
The complainants in the promised suit
are relatives of the late Mr. Crerar, or,
at least, nucli is their clai.n. Tbe rela
tionship was, however, only discovered
subsequent to Mr. Crerar' death, and it
ia not even intimated that during life the
present complainants ever laid claim to
kinship with the late millionaire. The ex
act relationship of these people with the
testator is said to be through Mr. Crerar's
nncles on the paternal side. No mention
was made of any such relatives in
the will, though every known relative on
the maternal side came in for recogni
tion. The complainants are almost with
out exception Canadians, and come from
Stratford, Ont., where Mr. Crerar's un
cles lived. They are all cousins, fir3t or
The Baals of the Fight.
The grounds on which these posthum
ously discovered relattves will seek to huve
the 'vtll set aside are somewhat similar to
thosa upon which the Tilden will was up
set. It will lie claimed that all the lie
quests to public societies, and particular
ly tl e oue to the Crerar library fund, are
invalid by reason of uncertainty. The
clauinthe Tilden will upon which the
courts set it aside is that wherein the test a
tor I takes use of the words "or so much
then-of as they may deem expedient."
This clause tho courts held invested the
trustees with an uncertain power, and
then fore created an invalid trust. Upon
this assumption the contestants will claim
that the devising of a fund for public li
brary purposes is in the nature of creat
ing an invalid trust, and they claim the
same as regards several other i&rge lie
They Lived in Hopes.
It was not known by the executors that
any relatives of Mr. Crerar on his father's
side were living. None of the claimants
is we 1 to do. During Mr. Crerar's life
they lived in hopes of benefiting largely
by his will at his death. When the latter
evetit occurred and they found that not
only were their names unmentioned but
that t he entire estate had lieen tie I up ia
a manner that apparently precluded the
possibility of a contest they made de
mands on the trustees for recognition.
Hunt mgton W. Jackson, as attorney for
the estate, was first approached by James
Stewart, one of the contestants Mr.
Jacksau listened to the man s story and
informed him that he did not we any
grounds for the trustee to interfere in his
favor against the express terms of the
Depend on What He Would Have Done.
The a the man went, to a local lawyer
and s-ated his case. The latter set about
hunting up other relatives, and from the
success that attended lux search it ap
pears little short of marvelous that Mr.
Crerar should have had so many near rel
atives and not know it. But it's precisely
on th s ignorance of their existence that
the cojslns and second cousins cl um thut
they have just grounds for breaking the
will. They say that inasmuch as Mr.
Crerar remembered all his relatives on his
mother's wde it is evident that he knew
of no relatives on his father's side or f e
would certainly have made mention of
A Chicago View of the Case.
Mr. Jackson is in Europe but his part
ner. Mr. Lyman, had heard of the suit
and whs prepared to express his opinion
upon the case. "If the suit is brought by
parties claiming to be related to Mr. Cre
rar, and to whom no bequest has been
given, the decision of the supreme court,
whereii it was decreed that a testator
mayeten disinherit his own children, is
sufficient answer. Provided that Mr.
Crerar was of sound mind and memory at
the tin e the will was made, he had power
tobeqi.eath his property just where he
Not Like the Tilden Will.
"As to ihe question of validity of the
trust created to turn over property to the
John Crerar library, that is an entirely
differei t matter. Tbe legatee is a cor
poration created for tbe purpose of carry
ing out the objects of the request, as spe
cifically set forth in the will, and any suit
against such corporation cannot be sus
tained. The language of Mr. Crerar's will
with re'erence to the establishment of the
library is very clear. It in no manner re
sembles the terms of the Tilden will, ia
which the testator authorized his execu
tors to convey to or apply to the use of the
new corporation the rest, residue and re
mainder of all his real and personal estate,
or as much thereof as they may deem ex
pedient. nthliig Indefinite About It.
"The last clause is claimed by the con
testants of the Tilden will to be objection
able. They claim that tbe amount left
to the discretion of the executors was un
certain and therefore invalid. In Mr.
Crerar's will, however, the bequest for
the librt-ry is not left to the discretiou of
the executors and trustees. The bequest
is definite and cleat in its character and
free from any uncertainty."
The total amount of money involved is
about tl 500,000, of which over $2,000,000 is
left for tbe library.

ABipa Old Ag-a-
J. II. Holcomb and wife, of Belcher
ville, Texas, have celebrated their fifty
fifth wedding anniversary, and are still
hale and hearty. The secret of their
oDg life and good health is that they
correct any slight ailment promptly, and
in that way avoid serious sickness. Like
most everyone else they are more fre
quently troubled with constipation than
any other physical disorder. To correct
this they take St. Patrick's Pills in pref
erence to any other, because, as Mr. Uoh
comb says, "They are a mild pill, and
besides, keep the whole system in order.
We prize them very highly." For sale

"Did Smithers make any motions at the
meeting?" "Well, not exactly motions.
He made a great many gestures."
Forced to Leave Home.
Over 60 people were forced to leave
their homes yesterday to call at the drug
gist's for a free trial package of Lane's
Family Medicine. If your Mood is bad,
your liver and kidneys out of order, if
you are constipated and have headache
and an unsightly complexion, don't fail
to call on any druggist today for a free
sample of this grand remedy. The ladies
praise it. Everyone likes it. Large size
package 50 cents.
The Ounce of Prevention.
"If I bad only knotvn it in
time," sighs the invalid, "I
might have b?en saved all this
8ulleiing." The fact is that all
diseases begin by a slight ne
glect. For the want of a nail a
shoe was lost; for the want of a
shoe ahorse was lost; for the
want of a hoise a rider was
lost, and for the want of a rider
an army was lost; for the want
of an army a kingdom was lost
all for the want of a nail.
Don't neglect a trilling cough.
Tu its train comes disease and
death. Keid's German Cough
and -Kidney Cure will soon
relieve you of its troublesome
presence. The remedy is easily
obtained. If neglected it may
entail an endless amount of
suffering and perhaps shorten
your life for years. It has often
been remarked that a cold taken
in summer is much more diffi
cult to cure than one taken in
winter. In this climate a sud
den change from hot to cold,
brings colds and influenza in its
train and an astonishing amount
of summer complaints. The
reason is that the perspiration
is checked and the stomach
is suddenly culled upon to take
care of the elfete matter that
has been thrown off through the
skin. In all cases of this kind
take lleid's German Cough and
Kidney Cure. It stimulates the
digestion and enables the stom
ach to perform the additional
duty imposed upon it without
a 113' trouble. Its effect in all
these cures is marvelous. It
stimulates the system, builds
up the digestive organs so that
the chilled surface is restored
to its natural condition, and the
stomach is thus relieved of the
burden that has been put upon

A HOUSEHOLD FAVORITE.
A young" girl here had been suffering for 12
years with blood diseases until site had lost the
use of her limbs and was subject to many trou
bles incident to the disease. The phys.rians
declared her case incurable and predicted that
her life would come to a speedy end. After
taking S. S. S. she recuperated so fast that it
was plain that she had obtained a new lease un
life, and she has continued tu grow better until
her permanent cure is assured. Many utl-r pa
tients in our hospital have obtained sign! bene
fit from 8. S. S., and it has becouw quite a fa
