He therefore left Portland bout !1 a. u>. and reached Augusta all right. F rgetting about freight St. 23, tbs regular freight train running from B mgor to Portland, Mr. Kilgore rau his engine out from Augusta. When about five ami a half miles from that City, at a place known as Arpy's gravel pit, where the track makes a short curve, Mr. Kil gore’s engine encountered freight No. 23 with thu resu’t described in the dispatch above. Mr. Kilgore had his back and both legs broken but lived a short time. He sta'elthat the fauit of thn collision rested entirely on himself. It is said his widow re sides at Woodford's The wild engine was N •. 51, and the engine of the freight train No. 15 A track was built around the nrtek So that Conductor Jewett's train was not d-liyei much more than an hour.

O C. \A aahb’irn's Will. Milwaukee May 17.—There is a startling phase iu the litigation over the will of the l*t>' Gov. Washburn, who 1—ft various Individ u 1b aud charities $2,500 000. There have been two decisions rendwied recently by two different courts, iviug a construction to this will, and wit it seems most singular is that the two d«cio< ns are apparently in direct conflict. Iu one court—The i rohate Court <>! Hennepin County, Minn.—it is bed that the prov siotis of iho w ill make uecess try an “election” by the widow whether she will take the provis ions ot the wi l or the property as it would go by the law of descent In the other court—the Circuit Court of La Crosse Countv, Wii.—it is held that there is no such provision made iu the will for the benefit of the widow as makc au election necessary ou her part. Ex-Gov. Washburn was a man well knowu as strong minded, clear headed, wise.sagacious and busi ness like. By bis sound judgment, his thor ough knowledge of almost every department of nusiuesf', his untiring euergy, and his close attei t on <o buiuoss he accumulated a vast estate. His wife had been for more ih «u 25 years the inna te of an in-utiie a-yluin at the time of his death, aud is to-day incurably in sane. He provided lor her iu the following clause iu Lis will: “1 direct my executors, to bear constantly iu mind the wan's of toy wife, and to set aside, use, aud expend whatever money may be uecet-sary, consistently with her condition, to provide tor her comfort and physical t ealth, and I place no limit upon the sums which they may spend for the purposes indicated.” By the law of descent the widow of Mr. Washburn would be entitled to one-third of the personal proper>y aud a life interest iu out-thud it his real estate in Wisconsin and an undivided one-third in fee simple of all his lands in Minnesota. Judge (Jelaud, of the probate court of Heuuepin county, Minn , decided that the .will clearly shows such a provision for Mrs. Washburn, that she mast elect betweeu the will and her rights Under the laws of Wisconsin regulat ing the descent of property, Judge Newman, of the La Crosse Circuit Court, decided the contrary of this, and holds that there is not such a provision in the will as calls upon the widow to make an election between the pro visions of the «ill and the law regal at tug the deBc>-pt of proj*erty in Wisconsin. By the laws of Wisconsin if the will contains a pro vision for the tone tit of Mrs. Washbu’D, then, unless she, within one year after the death of her hut-bi«nd, renounces the provisions of the will, she is deemed to have accepted the same in lieu of dower. If the decision of Judge Newtnan.«8 sound, the guardian of the aged hi Ha no widow comes iuto possession of over StJOO.OOO of property which he w ill hold and manage tor the benefit of Mrs. Washburn lu the doubt ana uncertainty cretted by these two apparently conflicting decisions, the executors see no other alternative but to app* al from the decision of Judge N«*tnau to the Su preme Court of ;be Slate of Wisconsin, aud to ap|»eal from the decision of the Probate Court of Heiinepiu county, to the proper court iu Mtumsota. The attorneys announce to-day that the ca^e w ill bo appealed at once. Judge Newman, holding, as he does, that it is not a c.im» of *‘el» ction” by the widow, gives her all the provisions of the will, and in addition the entire estate, which by op* ration of law would go to Mrs. Washburn by the Wisconsin law of descent, which is one-third of his persona) es tate aud a life interest iu one-third of his real estate. The difference 1U the tvo opinions is so great that nothing short of the decision of the Supreme Court can or will settle the legal oouetruettoo of the will and the rights of Mis. Washburn. The entire estate lias been dispos ed of bv Mr. Washburn iu his will. The de em* *n of belli judgt s is to withdraw from UUU to £900,000 from the pri visions of the will and to that extent defeat the apt arent inten tion of i lie testator; and by the construction plant'd on the will leave it doubifa whether the gram) charities Mr. Wa^bburu has pr vid* ed for in his will can be successfully carried out iu the iu ‘liner he contemplated. The de cisions have create ! a great sensation In the Northwest. None of the large sums of tnouey left to the various cities for benevolent institu tions can be utilized until this matter ts dis posed of. No end of trouble is growing out of the will. The estate is the largest ever iu dis pute in the way that this is iu this par* of the country. The guardian if Mrs. Washburn is a New York gentleman. GEN. UKUUK.’» AD VAIN (J Hi.

Two or lhr-e days after, upon coming on deck one morning, Captain Nichols found the steamer off her c rarse and running for another vessel jus visible in tbe dim distance. Picking up tbe telescope lying on tbe after house, Capt. Nichols, after a long, careful look, was satis fied the sail in sight was tbe ship David Brown, of which his brother-in-law, Capt. Ptr.neas Pendleton, Jr., was in command, and of which be owned a parr. Not desiring to have any of his relatives meet him in such Company, aud not wishing to see any more of his property burned by the Confederates, Capt. Nichols put down the glass aud burst into a hearty laugh. Capt. Waddell, who was near bi. asked. “What are you laughing at Captain?” “Ob, nothing,” said Capt. Nich ols, laughing again. “I believe,” said Capt. Waddell, “you’ve madeont that vessel to bo the Englishman ave overhauled the other day.” “Well,” said Cap’ain Nichols, “have It your OSVII way.

A Word About tbe Marshal. Whither are we tending? and who are oar master*? Are we, freemen,or is onr City Mar shal expounder o' the law? Read this, and, as your uatur < urges, weep cr smile: The marshal said he warned the police to take treat care to see that every saloon * here beer er other I quor is sold, is hereafter closed at lOoYleCk every night. Not only closed in front, with door 1, eked and lights out, but closed in the kitchen and every other appurte nance to the saloo . The police wore also in structed lo have all such places closed ou the Sabbath and kept closed. If, after notifica tion, ihe saloon keepers persist iu keeptug opeu after 10 o'clock nights, the police are directed to make Belzurts al once ou their premises. "Take great care to close overy saloon where l'qnor is sold at 10 o’clock every night.” Do the police kuow where it is sold? If »o, win wait uutil 10 o'olock t > c'oee them'.’ Does not the oath of office require the police to close them a little oatlier than 10 o’clock at night? The pol ce are also required to does them on the Sabbath. Are wo to understand by this that they may keep open on other days? "Aud if said sal.ton keepers do not close at 10 o’cleck, ilto police shall make seizures at once.” Are we to iufer that there arn to be no seizures except it be after 10 at n ght? What an a-sumption on the part of the City Marshal! Ho a sworn officer to execute the laws! Ii. sitncting the police to execute the law alter 10 o’clock at night. What absurdity ! think of tt! Suppose a highway robbery had beeu commit tod. or store broken into, or even some starving child had stolen a loaf of bread; think ye that this marshal of ours would instruct the police to,'wait uutil after 10 o’clock at night” before an arrest should be made? Why not? Has this marshal become superior to the laws? aud does he decide what laws sliall he cxecntid, when execuied and upon whom executtd. Veri ly,where are we tending? What respect can or will the people have for the law or the execu tion of the law? Justice. Colby University.
