FEES IN PROBATE COURT
EFFORTS BY REGISTER TANNER
FOR JUST SETTLEMENTS.
Bill Introduced Giving -Proportion
ate Rates of Cost?What Mr.
Tanner Says on the Subject.
Senator Gallinger yesterday introduced
in the Senate a bill to lix fees anil costs
in the probate court. The bill is the
outcome of the efforts of Register of
Wills Tanner to secure a proporttnate :
rate of costs in the settlements of estates j
Under the present arrangements it costs j
as much to probate and administer an
estate of $1O,(m.i0 as one involving $1,000
000.
The new bill provides, besides the brief
mention made of it yesterday, that tees
shall be charged as folows:
Where the value of an estate does not
exceed $200, no fees shall be charged.
Where it exceeds $200 and does not
exceed $500, the total fees shall be $5;
between $500 and $1,000, $10; between
$1,000 and $1,500, *15; between $1,500 and
$2,000. $20; between $2,000 and $3,000,
125; between $3,000 and $4,000, $30; be
tween $4,000 and $5,000, $35; between
$5.0(t0 and $6.f*iO. $40; between $6,000 and
$7,000, $45; between $7,O00 and $8,000,
between $8,000 and $'.*.000. $55; be
tween $!U>00 and $10,000. $<50; bet ween $10,000
and $15,000, $75; between $15,000 and $20.
<hmi. $00; between $20,000 and $25,000. $110;
between $25,000 and $30,000, $120; between
$.10,000 and $35,000, $130; between $35,t>00
and $4O,iXi0, $140; between $40,(J? and $45.
ih>0. $150; between $45,0<to and $50,000,
$100; between $.">0,000 and $55,000, $lt>5;
tween $55,000 and $60,000. $170; be
tween $00,000 and $05,000, $175; between
$05,000 and $70,000, $180; between $70,000
and $75,000, $1>S5; between $75,000 and
$sn.ooo. $100; between $80,000 and $85.
000. $105; between $85,000 and $00,000,
52(>o; between ?*>.000 and $05,000, $205; be
tween $05,000 and $100,000, $210. Estates
in excess of $100,000 shall pay $210. and at
the rate of $100 each additional $100,0?>o.
or fractional part thereof.
Speaking of the new bill, Mr. Tanner
said; "it is readily seen by an exam
ination of the records that a plan of
taxation of fees based on a percentage
calculation upon the relative values of es
tates would relieve the smaller estates
from paying an unjust projwrtion of the
court fees, without more seriously affect
ing the larger estates, than to have them
pay full share. Such a system Is con
tained in the new bill. Under it the high
est percentage paid would be but 21* per
cent (as against fees oft nearly 10 per
Cent in some cases under the present sys
t? m), and this would be only in estates
exceeding $200 in value. From that tigure
tl.e percentage rate rapidly diminishes
until in estates aggregating in the neigh
borhood of $100,000 a fraction over one
fifth of 1 per cent would be paid. In es
tates of larger amounts the rate would
be still lower, amounting to practically
one-tenth of 1 per cent in an estate valued
at $1,000,000.
"As a result of the extensive examina
tion of the office records and compila
tion of statistics necessary for the per
fection of a system that should adequate
ly provide for the administration of the
office, and at the same time provide for a
more nearly proportionate distribution of
administration fees, some very interesting
and pertinent examples have been noted.
From six hundred (000) administration
cases selected from the office tiles in such
manner as to make the average obtained
therefrom as accurate representation of
the whole as possible, the following ap
pears:
"The total value of the estates of $10,
000, or less, among these cases, aggre
gated $1,050,515.24. These estates paid in
fees to this office the sum of $0,705.02
which amount was 54.05 per cent of the
total fees received from the 600 cases.
The estates, numbering 155. amounting in
value to over $10.(nk> each aggregated
?S13.746.U17.14. These estates paid the
other 45.05 per cent of the total fees, or
$8,020.60. In other words, estates amount
ing to 02.30 per cent of the total value
represented in these 000 cases paid only
45 per cent of the fees, leaving the smaller
estates, whose values amounted to only
7 04 per cent of the total, to beat* the bur
den of the other 55 per cent of fees. There
can be no question about the injustice of
a system that will produc? these figures,
but they are obtained from a general
average, and by no means represent the
inequality as to individual estates."

one of the best known and most popular
chaplains in tne army, and has endear; d

his services in this vicinity, especially at
th>' Cathedral close.
He was born in New Jersey, and is a
Kraduate of the New Jersey state Normal
.s. :iool He received th-> degrees of Ph B

been in somewhat impaired health for
several months, but has always been able
to perform the duties required of him
which were particularly exacting while he
was stationed at Fort Myer. as he was
then called upon to officiate at practically
all the numerous military funerals at the
Arlington National cemetery. He was
never known to shirk a task, and by his
kind and gentle nature and liberal views
was a great favorite in the army. His
plans for the future are unknown but
he has received several flattering offers
from churches in different parts of the
country, and it is not improbable he will
accept a call to a church in Pennsylvania.

NOT GUILTY OF CHARGES.
Action of Trial Board in Cases of
Policemen.
Policeman A. F. Johnson, colored, has
been acquitted by the police trial board
of charges of neglect of duty and mal
treating a white man placed under arr?>st
by him the night of December -4 last. '
The charges against Johnson and also !
against Lieut. A. Shilling of the seventh J
precinct, alleging gross incompstence. j
grew*out of the arrest of William VfttU j
at the intersection of Wisconsin avenue j
and P street, at which time Viett and a j
number of colored men. it is alleged. were
engaged in a general fight immediately j
after alighting from a street car. It
was said that Johnson placed Viett. a ?
white man. under arrest rather than on- '
of his own race, and after the arrest
used unnecessary violence.
A number of witnesses testified that ,
they observed the incident, the trend ot !
their evidence being that there was a
general tight, with Viett apparently the
aggressor. Viett, who was is1 an intox'
cated condition, witnesses said, objected
to being placed under arrest by a colored
policeman and resisted. Nothing was
offered to show that Johnson struck the
prisoner, the only thing of questionable
nature being that the policeman and iiis
prisoner fell to the pavement, with John
soq on top. This the policeman explained
by stating that both m;n tripped, at the
same moment. JJe. denied using, undue
violence in taking his prisoner to the
station: that he was partial in selecting
a white man out of the lighting crowd to
place under arrest, or tnat he used his
club.
Among the witnesses were T. F. Kele
her. Philip Hall, Clyde Hunt, George
Heard. John H. Whitemore, \V. A. Ayres,
James K. Wilson. John W. Mitchell. Gro
ver Engle. E. S. Staples. j-.ouis Re^ble.
William Steevens, William H. 4-ander
and William Hart.
The hearing in the case of Lieut. Shil
ling resulted in the prompt exoneration
of that officer.
