$30,000 Subscribed Toward a lj.50,000
Testimonial Fund.
New Yoiik, Feb. 28. An informal meeting
of several bankers was held on February 31 in
this city to devise means for raising a testi
monial fund for tho widow of Secretary Win
dom. Information was received through Sena
tor Washburn and Stephen B. Elkins that the
estate of tho late Secretary of tho Treasury
would afford an annual lovenue of only $3,500.
One-third of this sum, according to the will,
was to go to Mrs. Windora, while the rest was
to be divided among tho three children.
A member of tho committee said to a Tribune
reporter to-day: "We have done our best to
keep it quiet because it is of a delicate nature,
and Mrs. Windom is a lady of the inoBt refined
sensibilities. It would bo a poor compliment
to tho people of the country, however, if they,
especially of the financial circles, were to
allow the widow of one who has dono so much
for our ilnauces to be in the circumstances de
scilbed. If this affair must he made public
you might as well give your readers the facts
as they are. We already have $30,000 sub
scribed aud wo waut to round it out into an
even $50,000 or more, if tho people feel er dis
posed." The French Chamber of Deputies has decided
to suppress every kind of betting on racea. Tho
decision has caused a tremendous sensation
among sportsmen.
