Smith, by which they sock to compel an equal division of thosa two e'states, which are valued at $7,000,000. among tho helrs-at-law of Jacob Ilostotter. The claim made by the plaintiffs is that the firm of Hosteller & Smith was founded, and Its subsequent Immense busi ness made possible, by the fraudulent obtain Inc from Jacob Hostettor. In 1858. by David Ilostetter, of a valuablo formula for a pro prietary medicine, tho secret ot which was previously known only to Jacob Hostotter. Jacob Ilostetter was a residont of Fast nempflold township, this county. Ho bad somo knowlodce of medicine and was known as Dr. Ilostetter. Ho was vsry poor. About fifty years ago his son David came to this city and became a clerk tn Christopher Hacor's dry coods store. Another elerk In the store was a youth named George W. Smith. Young Ilostetter subteiuently encaced la tho dry cooas business hlmelf with a partner. Tho firm failed, owlnca cood deal of money in Lan caster and Philadelphia. The California ex cltoment was at Us height about that time, nnd Hostettor started for tho Pacific coast llo was stranded on tho Isthmus ot Panama, nnd to obtained monoy enough to continue his journey he made and peddled a cln cer beer peculiar to the Pennsylvania lJutoh counties of Pennsylvania, and which he knew how to tnal e. Tho new beverage bo ojiinoso popular In that thirsty region that Ilostetter soon began manufacturing It by wholesale, and ostahllshed agencies in vari ous places for Its sale. In a short tlmo ho had niailen cood deal of money, and hlstradowas increasing, but ho was burning with the Call loniia fever, and gave up bis Isthmus beer business to go on to tho cold regions. When ho nrrlted In California he made up his mind that there could be moro money made in sell Inc fresh meat at the prices prevailing tlioro than thero was in cold hunt ing, and ho at once Invested all his capl ll ,'n Astalillshlnc a butcher shop. He hud beefed his first steer, and hadltlin his shop to upon business with when a rival set tiro to his shop and burned it to the cround. ox and all 1,.,,?.,,'er w"" i'vn'illoss. He soon slctened or California and worked hl ;. way back to tho Atlnntlc const, roturnlnc to Lancaster without n, cent, boon nfierWard his father made up o formula for a patent medicine and Induced a Lancaster druggist naraedAreen to encacn in Its manufacture, with UaWl Ilostetter as n partner, tho formula to stand against Green's capital. Thpmodlclne hud a blc local sale, nnd younc Hosietter s share ottbeprotlts hav ing in two or three years clven him o little capital, he withdrew; from the firm and went to Pittsburgh to speculate In whiskey.

Ho died In H&R and his son David and Georce VY. Smith formed a partnership to carry on the business, and moved it to Pittsburgh. In a fow years tho business that had sprung from tho old Dutch country Doctor's formula be came one of the greatest in the world, and when David Hostettor died In IKSi he was worth $.ooo,0oa Smith died some years bo foro. worth $'-'.000,000. It was not until tho bringing of the suit to havo these great fortunes divided betneouthe heirs or old Jacob Ilostetter that any die. honest or lllosal means were alleged to luite been used by David ilostetter lii obtaining control of his fathers business and medical siteret. lisrly In his career In Pittsburgh ho had paid up. with Interest, nil the debts his business vonturo In Luncastor In IrllU hud in purred, not only his own but his partner's.

TUB PACIFIC COAST HKFEnKK. How the nentTrlnl ortbe Ilonnle Turret Monitor Monterey Kitni Vt. WARniNOTos. Juno ." During tho present week tho steel, low freebonrd. coast dotonee vosselMontorcy has comnloted her sea trials and returned to the Mare Island yard for tho hydraullo tests of hor bollors. Hor run was a great shortcoming In point of speed, slnco sho hadorlglnallyboondeslgnod to makelOknots. and actually fell short of lU.cton with forced draught. However, sho was not driven at her full power, ono nceount saying that this was duo to tho uncertainty as to tho condition nnd stroncth of hor bollors. Sho logged nbout V3 knots tho hour on n run of sixty miles: but thoro oro grounds for bollovlne that the log did not do hor full justice, nnd Chlof Ln clneerJoBophTrllley'sdospntch to tho Navy Department says that sho mado nonny iJ knots. Whon the Inspection Board, after tho trial, exnmlned tho machinery It was found that there woro no overheated bearings, nnd thero was no wator on tho journals, nor nny looking or vlslblo nopcaranco of weakness either lit tho Ward or the Scotch bollors. althouch thoy had bon In continuous operation for over slxty-flve hours. Tho prossuroon tho bollors had nvcracod from 131 to 143 pounds. Tho reason clven by Mr. Trllloy for the fact that hor engines did not develop tho power expect ed was that Inferior coal wnB used. With nil drawbacks, tho extrcmo nssortlons mado against tho Monterey's encinos and bollors were refuted, The Motitoroy's engines nro twln-serow. vor tical, trlplo-oxponsion, contalnod In water tight compartmonts, teparnted by a loncltudl nal bulkhead. Thoy wero doslcnod to mnko 150 retolutlonspormlnuto at lull speed, nnd to dovelop nn nveragc, undor forced draught, during a four hours' run. of 5,400 nggregato Indicated horso powor. It will bo understood that tho trials of tho presont week woro not her acceptance trials for horso powor. those having taken placo about six months ngo: and it is notablo that as tho Monterey was tho first steel-armored vessol ever comnletod In this country, so sho was tho last of our new vessels in which horso power rather thun speed was tho contract guarantee But the point of chief Intorcot In the Mon terey's machinery was her bollors. Thoso consisted of two slngle-onded steel Scotch boilers, designed for a working prossuro of 100 pounds, nnd Intendod to supply 1,'JOO horso power, togcthor with four Ward coll boilers, which woro oxpeetod to develop 1.300 horso power each, thus supplying the remain ing 4.200 of tho total 5.400 horso power as signed to tho vessel. This was tho first of our now warships in which the Ward bollors had been usod In battery, and tho first vessel in which thoy hnd been cniployod on so largo a scale. The French war ships had usod coil hollers of certain types, and had claimed for them economt In fuel ns well as In weight nnd space occupied, all of which are Important ad vantages In a war vessel. Nearly live years ago Secretary Whitney invited the makers of coll bollors to submit specifications to a board of onglneers. of which Chief Engineer Charles II. Lorinc was Prosl dont Tho result was to mention fourtytios of bollors made in this country ns of mlllclont merit for testing. Those actually usod in the Monteroy were the invention ot Charles Ward of Charleston, W. Yo. which passed it success ful tost in IKK), llosidos tho adtantnges al ready spoken of, especially ns to weight and space, a cood point in the coll bollere Is their ability to raise steam moro rapidly than others, from the small quantity of water they carry, and their perfect circulation, buoh an advantage was considered especially Impor tant to a coast defender, which often would not bo undor steam, but lInc at anchor In the homo port. Or, again, if tho Monterey were cruising at low speed, with only her two Scotch boilers in action, she could reach hor maximum in half an hour by light ing the tires undor tho Ward bollors. Henca thore was somo anxiety at tho rocont reports of a failure In tho Montorey's boiler system, while the rellof Is correspondingly ereat at flndlnc that a fair degree of success attondod this week's trials, althouch. as has boon said, tho full power was not accomplished. The re maining hydraulic tosts will complete that part of the business. Tho trial of her cun. which also took placo during tho trip, was satisfactory. Mie has it fiecullnr main battery, consisting of two 12 nch rifles In her forward turret, and two 10 inch In tho after. Tills nrrancouiont was re quired by a elmnge in her armor and arma ment. As at first planned sho was to havo had helt armor HI Inches thick at tho centre, and H inches and U Inches forward nnd aft, but tapering to . 5. and 4 Inches respectively at tho armor shelf. Hor main armament was to have consisted tit ono Hl-luch gun. one l'.'-lnch. six 4-Inch guns, and a 15-Inch pneumatic tube nt her bows. Hut moro deliberate consider ation nltored so miscellaneous a battery. Tho Zollnskl pneumutlo gun was still experi mental, and It was felt to bo unwiso to make ao important and urcently needed a vessol depend upon It. It wnu also thought unwlo to provido a lit-Inch gun. when no (.tool rlflo of eton half that weight hnd yet hocn made in this country, so that two llMnch guns wero adopted in Its stead. Hut with this chango, and the removal of tho pneumatic gun from the bows. It was necessary 1 1 alter the guns forth aft barhotte, aud accordingly two 10 inch were provided for It. Meanwhile it had been found necessary to alter tho armor. Tho sldearmor was mado 13 inches thick attho maximum, whllo her forward barbette ro relied 14-lneh armor and tho forward turret 8-lnch, tho after barbetto having. 11', -inch armor and tho after turrot 7),'. When thoso chances wero made, tho orlcinal trim was practically restored. The trial of these 12-Inch and 10-Inch guns was successfully made this week.

Policeman Whalen ollmbod In through au open window In tho rear and mado a search of the houio. In a small room on the top floor he found an old man lying naked on the floor. The rooms wore destitute ot furniture, and there was no food In the house. There was water In the kitchen down stairs, but the old man was too weak to leave the room. Ho had been there since Tuesday without food or drink and was almost dead from oxhaustlon. Tho policeman searched through the house for tho man's clothing, but could not And It, He went to one ot the neighbors and bor rowed a suit, and then summoned an ambu lance from tho City Hospital. Whllo waiting tor the ambulance Policeman Whalen loarned that the man was Frederick W. Btoger, 71) rears old, and that ho tormsrlr llvod in Hoboken, where ho owned property worth about $00,000. Btegor's condition was such that Dr. Law. the ambulance surgeon, found It necsssary to give him stimulants before he deemed it sate to remove him.

He said that he had deeded tho house at 41 Peterson street to Krnst Wlttic and his wlfo on condition that ther take care of him for tho remainder of his life. When ther moved away on Tuesday they left him nothing, not oven his clothing. He believes ther took his cloth ing awar so that he would be unable to go out ot tho house and mako his condition known. btoger's life has been a peculiar ono. When his wife died, twentr-two rears ago, he llvod In Newark street, between Orand and Adams streets. Hoboken. Ho owned tho house In which he lived, property in First street and Adams street, Hoboken. and property In Jersey City. Ills entire ostate was estimated to be worth SOO.OOO. Alter the doath ot his wife he entered Into a common law marrlago with Mrs. Uarslott. his housokcopor. A daughter was born to them, who is now Mrs. Louisa Boxton. In 1B8U. Htegor quar relled with Mrs. Uarslott and left hor. He en cagod another housokeopor. a Mrs. Hansell. 1 ho new hoiisokeoper persuaded Btezer to lot her brother. George Hartleman. live with them. In about a renr afterward Mrs. Hansoll had btceer arrested, charging that he was tho father ot her child. Bteger nllee-ed thnt the child was not his nor Mrs. Hansel's cither. and that Mrs. Hansel had borrowed the babr for the purpose of levying blackmail on him. Uo engaged Lawer An thony Kngelbrecht to defend the suit. The lawyer, after n while, suggested ns a compro mise that btecor should marry Mrs. Hansel, and he did so. Thoy first went to Justice Seymour, but he, knowing that there was another woman living vt ho was presumably btoger's wile, refused to Serform the ceremony. They then went to ustlce Rush, nnd he, aware of no obstacln to the marriage, performed the ceremony. That wne on Bcpt. 27, 1802. In the course of a few months Lawyer Engelbroohtcot possession ot three of Bteger'e houses. They wero deeded to him for legal services rendered and for monoy advanced. Moger's nevtexperionco was his arrost on the ground that he waB a lunatic. He was committed to the eountyjnll to await exami nation by the County 1'hyslcinn. It was tiiild at the tlmo that the charge wne mado for the purpose of getting him out of tho way. His daughter. Mrs. Helton. Interested horself in his behalf and seoared his release. Bubsequently Bteger and his latest wlfo went to Lawyor Max Salinger, and Bteger conveyod his property In Willow avonue, Hoboken. to Mr. Balluger for a consideration of $1. Mr. Ballnger transferred the property, which Is worth $7,500. to Mrs. Btozer. The roxt transfer ot property mado bybtegorwss mo houso at 41 raterson street, which is worth S3.400. to Ernst Wlttlg and his wife. Tho consideration for that was an acroeniont that the Wlttigs should take caro of Bteger for the rest of his life. When Mrs. Bexton learned of all the transfers ot property hor father was making she en gaged Sonator William IX Daly to look after her Interests. Benator Daly socured the ap pointment ot a commission In lunacy. It con sisted of Judgo E. T, Paxton, Dr. ItomooP. Chabort, and Lawyer William M. Dougherty. They heard testimony and doclded that Bteger had boen Insuno for three years, arid that all the transfers of proporty he bad made In that time were Invalid. Lawyor John Urlf II n was appolntod guardian for Hteger, but when ho learned the intricacies of tho case ho refused to serve. Lawyer James Gordon was appointed In his stead. While tho proceedings In lunacy woro pend ing Mrs. Pauline (lerlaoh of 04 Charles street. Jorsor City Heights, got her linear la the pie. Bhe bought the. property In Willow nvenuo, from Mrs. Hansol-Stegorond tho house 41 Pat er son street from the Wlttigs. Having- nn furthor Interest In the property, the Wittlgs moved away and abandoued Bteger, whom they had agreed to car for. When Mrs. Gerlach was buying the property sho was told that she was buyine n lawsuit, but she said she would take the chances. Tho papers were drawn last Saturday, and bteger was persuaded to sign them. Benator Daly says he proposos to lav the ease before the Grand Jury und ask for the indictment of all tho persons concerned In it for-conspiracy. THE lIAXCUESTEtt MVnDEIU Arrest or n Mnn In Hnrre.
