The will left most of tho estate, which exceeds
halt a million dollars, to Catholic Institutions
and to the Rev. James W. Power, pastor of All
Saints' Roman Catbollo Church. The new ac
tion Is brought by Charles Shlrloy and Timothy
Donovan, cousins of tho deceased, and they

executors and beneficiaries undor tho will as de
fendants. They say that tho rents aro bolng

utors under tho will, nnd thoy demand that a
rccolrer be appointed to oare for the estato
pending tho suit.
It Is alleged that Mrs. Johnson was of unsound

procured from her by tho undue Influence and
fraud of Fathor Powor, Peter Condon, and her
servant, Mary Kelly, ono or all, nnd by other
persons unnamed. Mrs. Johnson died on March
10 last. Her will was executed April 25, 18110,
and there was a codicil executed tho day of her

forty-nlnoycars,and had been hor confidant. She
tostlflod that Mrs. Juhnson had told heron sov
eral occasions that she would not leave her roln
tUes a five-cent piece.
Q Did she over express any opinion about

Mrs. O Conncll t A. You did not. I am Miss
a regular old maid.
"Now you have a foeman worthy of your
steel." said Frederlo R, Coudert, for the pro
ponents. " Yes. ho has." said tho witness, drawing her
eelf up in an nagresslve way.
Q. Is It true that Mrs. Johnson occasionally
drank a littlo t A. Mr. Johnson never In
dulged in Intoxicating liquors. Sho took a glass
of beer, wine, or brandv occasionally.
Q.Dld you join her I A. I can leave It alone.
Q.Dld you leave It alone t A. No, sir; I took
a glass of beer.
Q. Did you ever hear her called Crasy Mary I
A. Never. She said her people said she was
crazy. Thoy wanted her money.
The witness said that Mrs. Johnson frequently
complained that sho did not get her rents or a
monthly statement from Lawyer Condon. When
sho needed money she would ask him for It.
Q. Did she say anything about the Catnarlne
street property I A. Sho said that sho had
given It to Lawyer Condon: that he wished her
to give If to htm in her will, nnd It would pay
him for all his trouble. Next day she was crazy
Q. Did she say anything about Condon charg
ing her commissions t A. Sho said ha charged
her commissions for everything.

PILGRIM MOTHERS DINE.
U031AX SUFFRAGE AXO MOVNTAIK
Mrs. LIBIA Deverrux lllnkr Trlls or the Pros-
ress or Woman's linlrnnchlsement Mrs.
Prlicllla D. llnekalHlT Hot the Pilgrim
Mothers llad a Clrnlm fur Heir-BOnrement,
Two hundred adherents ot tho cause ot
woman's suffrage gathered at tno Waldorf
Astoria yesterday and spent the afternoon lis
tening to encouraging speeches from their lend
ers. The ev ent was tho annual pilgrim mothers'
dinner and was hold by tho Woman SufTrago
Loaguoot this city. The sentiments expiessed
In responses to toasts would Indlcatethatwoman
sufirago has advanced in tho last year to a de
greo littlo suspected by selfish man. Tho news
was rccolvcd by the rank and fllo with hand
clappings, tho waving of handkerchiefs, nnd
much glcaful laughtor. The fow men who gained
admission to tho dinner sat in a gallery and ap
plauded, too, but no one paid any attention to
them. It was a woman's afternoon, and tho sole
prlv liege ot tho men who strayed In was to look
on and say nothing.
Mrs. Llllle Dovoroux Blake, tho President ot
the league, presided nnd made tho address of
wolcomo. Sho said:
"I wolcomo you nil this afternoon to tho an
niversary ot tho pilgrim mothers. Of course.
It's tho annlvorsary of tho pilgrim fathers, too,
butwe'ronot celebrating them. Tboy'vo bocn
sufficiently lnudcd in tho past. Recently lhcard
a man speak of tho fathers as the progenitors
of tho race, just ns though tbe sacrifice and the
loving care and devotion ot tho pilgrim mothers
counted for nothing at all. It is tho women who
will have to rescuo from oblivion the names of
AnuBrowstor, Roso Standlsh, and others, and
you can be very suro wo will bring them back
when It comes our turn to writo history.
"This Is an auspicious period in tho history
ot our country, particularly to those who livo In
this vicinity. We stand on the vorgo of the
wedding of Miss Brooklyn and Mr. Now York.
Strangely enough, though, this is a wedding
whoro tho brldo rotalns hor name, whllo tbe
bridegroom changes his. It will utlll be Brook
lyn ovor tho river, but wo'll bo Manhattan,
Just think of living In a placo tho first threo
letters ot whoso name spoil ' man.'
" Tho appro-ichlng consolidation of women's
clubs, I bellovo, Is going to w ork a groat deal of
good for tho future-. Ihavcdono some Investi
gating of Into and cvon I havo been amazed nt
tho growth of Interest in women's clubs. The
flrsi demand made for woman's rights was mado
In 1818 at Seneca alls by our honored loader,
Mrs. Elizaboth Cadv Stanton. This winter
when wo celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of
the work we will pass the first milestone on tbe
path to success. And what have wo dono In
that time for woman's enfranchisement t Some
may say In their ignorance, ' Not much.' Well,
we'vo got suffrage In four States in tho Union
and partial suffrag o in twenty-tbreo others.
"Thero may bo some here this afternoon who
are opposed to woman suflrnge; thero maybe
somo who are Indifferent to It. How they can
be cither, in view of what it has accomplished
for women, I do not know. When tho work be
gan thero was not a collrgo or u profession open
to women, and tho announcement that a woman
would make a public address would have been
greeted with ridicule. Just think of tbatl
"It was tho advocates of our cause who
brought about tho change. Thy clamored at
the doors ot tho colleges until women were ad
mitted. They opened up tbe professions to our
sex nfteryears of persistent effort. Thoy worked
on with indomltablo energy until thoy revolu
tionized the position ot woman in tbe land. The
fact that we are hero today is a fruit of their
labors. Such a meeting as this could not have
been posslblo fifty years ago, when the only
placo that Lucrctia Molt could And to make an
address in was n carpenter shop.
"And so tho work will go on until we have
gained all that we want. Iho men havo not
been so very bad to ub, after all, but thoy must
glvo vrav as our causo advancos. There should
be no hesitation on their part, for as women
riso men must inev Itatily rise, too. As tho poot
said: 'It is eternnl woman that leads us up
ward and onward.""
Miss Annio S. Peck, well known as a moun
tain climber In this countrv and Europe, re
sponding to tho toast "On tho Heights," said:
"You villi hear It said among thoso of expe
rience that it takes courage to tackle tho Mat
terhorn, wbero thirteen novo already perished
and the slightest false step may send you to In
crease tbe number. It seems to mo that it Isa
far more terrlf)ing thing to face this audience
ot Intellectual women and miikcn speech.
"You have asked mo to tell you something
about mountain climbing. It takes n sound
heart, strong lungs and a steadv head to nscend
the snow mountains like Mont Blanc or Orizaba
in Mexico. But to tackle the Matterhorn re
quires oven more. Abov c nil things Is tho steady
head necessary. Ono must never get dizzy, must
be able to stand on tho very brink of precipices
without Quailing, and must l'.uv o tho strength to
do Uftecn hours' walking in ono da). The
strength required is not so much, though, us to
bar out woman. Some very remarkable featsof
mountain climbing hav c bocn dono by women In
tho past: moro remarkable ones will be done In
"I have been asked to explain the difference
between mountain climbing in Mexico nnd in
Switzerland. In the AIDS tbe requisites aro
more of a gymnast io character. One has to per
form such muscular feats as going hnnd over

Sho said in part:
"Somo time ago I heard an address on tho
subject of tho patriotism and courage of the
Pilgrim mothers, and I asked mj self afterward
what inspired these Christian women to Iho
deeds tboi performed I It could acarcely bo
said to be patriotism and love of country, when
thoy had just turned their backs on tho only
country thoy bad over known. I looked far
down into tlio henrts of tho Pilgrim mothers,
nnd I found in every one of them a certain
talent, amounting In somo to genius. It was a
genius for self cffaccmcnt and for sclf-sncrlflcc.
nnd I knew then that Hint was what iniplicd
these women. It was their lovo of liberty, of
honest lives, of thoir children. It led to patriot
ism then; It Is lending to It to day,
"Ibelievo that tho genius nf womon has de
scended from tho Pilgrim mothers of centuries
ago to the Pilgrim mothers of to-rta), and Is
bclngshown by them ns thoy go blazing their
way through thu fields of prejudice, clearing tlio
way for tho women of future generations, linmo

Motorman lais Rile Was In tbe Bens
Nhndnw or an Jtlectrle Light.
Just after 4 o'clock ycslerdny morning a trol
lay car of Iho South'Ornhge nnd Newark line
ran over 11 man who was tying on the track In
Vnllshurg, 100 feet wost of the Nowork line.
Motorman John Kcnncy of Newark was run
ning tho car toward tho stable In that city. It
was his last trip, nnd he was not lagging. There
was only one passenger nbonrd, and It was not
likely that thero would bo uny moro at that
hour and In that lonely strotdi of tho road.
Kcnncy was within 200 foot of tho prostrntomnn
beforo ho saw him. Ho says tho v Icttm was
lying In tho black shadow cast bynnoloctrlo
light over his head, and that tho light dazzled
his own cyos. When ho did boo tho man ho did
all ho could to stop, but It was too late.
Conductor Spies nnd Iho pnsscngor wont back
and found tho man quite dead.
Tbocoso was reported at tho Fourth precinct
station by Kcnncy, who submitted to arrest, nnd
tho body was tent to tho Moreno. During tho
day it was pretty thoroughly decided that tho
body was thatof Philip Rtlcr, a dissipated sto'no
polisher, who seoms to havo had no homo or
faiullj tics, and for twenty o irs had led a -vagabond
Ufa. For somo yovrs ho had slept on a pllo
of rngs in Kcnngott's stone- ard shod, hoar
where he was killed. On Tuosdny night Riley
was put out of Robert Korr's saloon, at Mil!
South Orange avenue, by tho proprietor, who
wantod toclosoup. ThU was shortly beforo 1
o'clock. Liter ho was neon In tvvoothorBaloons.
At 2 o'clock a car passed dovv 11 over tho track
upon which ho was killed. Then no moro cars
passed that way until Kenney went by, going
wost, on the other side of the nvenuo nhortly
before 4. He pays he did not see the man thero
becauso he was watching the track he was on.
An effort was made yestordayto work up a
theory of foul play In I ho case, but County Phy
sician Washington thinks thero are 110 grounds
for suspicion. A singular feature ot the
cbbo Is thu action ot William Matzart, a
stablomau employed by George O. Smith ot
Sand ord street. Matzart Is an old man, and
that Is all there is lu extenuation of his action,
or rather want of action. He voluntarily told
the police rcsterday that ho saw a man lvlngon
the truck Just beforo 4 o'clock In tho morning,
as he was walking down from his home to his
employer's stables and that hospoke to tho man,
who was lying face downward with his arms
folded under his head. Ihe man did not answer,
he said, but ho knew that ho was alive, because
he heard him snoring.
"I said to myself," ha told the pollco, "lot
him alone, he'll wnkofaat enough when tho next
trolley comes down."
Shortly afterward Matzart met a milkman
going up and told him about tho man, sa) ing It
would bo a good thing to pick him up. Ab usual,
several w Itnesscs wero found who said thoy heard
quarrelling in the road early in the morning,
and ono who heard somobody say. " I'll fix j ou.
It Is suggested that tho snoring heard by Mat
zart ma havo been tho etertorlous breathing
sometimes caused by npoploxy.
Kenney, tbo motorman, was paroled yester
day. Riley, w ho w as do years old, w HI boburlod
by tho city unless somebody claims his remains.

IlAiiTFOnD, Conn., Doc. 22 In the Sochse mur
der trlnl nt MIddlctown to day tho defence intro
duced much testimony In an attempt to impeach
Mtb. Hotchkiss nnd othor witnesses for tho
State. Lawyer Cbaso, for tho defence, endeavor
ing to provo that the fatal shot was fired by
some person othor than the accused, asked for a
conversation between Vera, tho four-year-old
daughter ot Mrs. Hotchkiss, and Mrs. Hills, a
sister of tho murdered man, but the remark was
not admitted. Mrs. Hills testified that sho was
at the Hotchkiss houso tho night of the murdor
nnd talked with Mrs. Hotchkiss. Tho latter
said sho saw two men after hearing tho shot,
and that they wont down tbo yard on tho jump;
that she did not identify olther, and that she
could not think of any ono who would do It ex
cept "Oeno" Spencer. Mrs. Hills spake of sev
eral who might have done the shooting, but did
not mention Sachsc.
Mrs. Hotchkiss said her oldest child sat on tho
lounge beside her husband, and had blood on her
dress. Mrs. Hotchkiss showed the dress, but
Mrs. Hills saw no blood, bho remained with
Mrs. Hotchkiss for a few nights after the mur
der, and the second night whllo sitting on tho
bed Mrs. Hotchkiss said It was strango ovory
body thought it was Sachse. If sho thought
Sachsc uad dono It, sho sold she would blow his
brains out, Mrs. Hotchkiss further said she
considered Sicliso too big a coward to do tho
shooting. While Mrs. Hotchkiss was away tho
littlo girl, Vera, talked to witness, and she
quicklj stopped when Mrs. Hotchkiss returnod.
LawjcrChaso endeavored to got In evidence
Just what tbo girl said, tho remark being
"Mamma had tlio gun." The State said Mrs.
Hotchkiss was not present when tho conversa
tion took placo and the remark was ruled out.
A gun expert gave testimony about tho differ
ent kinds of guns and shots nnd then tho defence
put in expert medical testimony.

In tho West Sldo Republican Club's now houso

in tho chair, and when sho brought her gavel
down nnd called for order everybody felt that
thero1 was somo serious business to bo settled.
It Boon cropped out In tho shnpo of n resolution
which wns offered by Mrs. Jnmes G. Wcntz.
Tho subslanco of this resolution was that tho
club should fndorso no candtdnto unless each
member of tho club should bo notified of tho
moetlng In writing nt lonst ten days beforehand.
When Mrs. Wentz offered her resolution Mrs.
Burna said: "This Is a Republican club and I

party, but this question Is beforo you nnd after

will defeat our own object as sot forth In our
Mrs. Poolo's remarks wero punctuated with
genorous npplnuso, and this Boemod to exctto
the opposition. Mrs. Wontz jumped to her feet
and snid with a great show of suppressed ax
cltcment: "Wo stand on Republican prlncl-

"I contend that it is not necessary to havo a

Mrs. Stacy, "but it is if wo aro Republican

as she was she was too late. Mrs. Falrman's
resolution bad received an almost simultane
