Trust Declared Invalid and Heirs Will ' Share in $1,000,000 Estate. Boston, December 10.?After an ex? istence of Afty-five years, a trust cre? ated by the will of John Rsyner. who died In 1S56, has been declared Invalid by the Massachusetts Supreme Court. As a result. Roxa S. Sauthard, of 1 Croton, a great-granddaughter; Hor? ton Edmunds, of Boston, a great grandson, and Francis C. Welch, as trustee of Thomas F. Edmands, a grandson, have succeeded to the title of the original devisees. The trust property Is valued at about $1,000,000. and consists of three parcels of real estate und buildings In Boston. The former beneficiaries are to hold the property, discharged of all trust, as tenants in common, subject to two mortgages on two of the parcels. The decision woa handed down In the suit brought by the Rayner trus? tees against Roxa Southard and others, asking for Instructions. The great granddaughter, through her attorney, 'had demanded a distribution of the property. The court held that the trust was Invalid because it prohibited the conv veyance of an estate in fee simple of the three parcels until mortgages upon them at Rayner's death or that his trustees might subsequently put upon them had been paid off and dlsecharged from half the net Income of the trust estate, which he provided should be used In that way.

SamuelV STITCH DOWNS ON SALB AT ALBERT STEINS 5th and Broad HAY BILLS WILL BE PUT THROUGH -< Important Army Legislation Probably Will Be Passed by Congress. Wnshlngton, D. C-, December 10?? Tho most Important army legislation thut has passed Congress In yours will be passed at this session or Congross, according to the understanding that now exists at tho Capitol. ThiB legislation Is expected to In elude: Tho consolidation of the quarlor mastor's, oubststeuco and puy depart? ments, which uro now separated, into a single department. Tho lengthening of the term of en? listment to live years. Provision for tho enlistment of a service corps In the'"army. Tho lopping of expenditures for con? struction at iirmy posts which wore once importune but have now become useless for milllury purposes, und uro Kept up fur reusons of politics or local convenience. The House Commlttto on Military Affairs will begin the preparation of tho army appropriations bill the com? ing week. Chairman James Hay, of Vlrginlu, Intends to hurry tho prepa? ration of the bill along, und it will bo one of the lirst of the big supply meuB ures to puss the House. The policy of the committee in prepurlng the bill will bo to reduce army expenditures, but at tho same time to make no re? ductions that will impair chiclency of the service. It Is the plan to put all this legisla? tion on the army appropriation meas? ure and force U through the House. Moreover, the expectation Is that the Senate will consent to It. Under tho' Republican regime in the House the proposed army legislation vould be stricken out of tho bill on u yclnt of order. It would go out under the old rule thut new legislation can? not be put on one of the regular ap? propriation bills. But under the Democratic, regime <n the House a different rule applies. This Is something that has been wide? ly overlooked. The rule udoptcd by ihe Democratic House Is the old rulo of llulmau, one time In Congress, famed as the original "watch dog" of 1 iho Treasury. Tho rule Is that new | legislation on an appropriation bill j is germane if It operates to reduco expenditures. As t? each plnco of legislation which baa been enumerated as proposed by j Mr. Hay, It can bo shown that it would cut expenditures. Hence the . chair will hold it is in order. It Is contended that the legislation In what are known as tho Hay rucus- ' ures alono will cut down army ex? penditures largely. The consolida? tion of the quartermaster's depart? ment, tho pay and subsistence depart? ments will mean economy. It will be lese expensive to enlist men for live j years than for threo. And economies are cluimed for the plan of a servlco corps, whereby the men who do cor- ; tain civilian work about the army will be enlisted for that purpose This would operate to relievo the soldiers 1 of much drudgery of which they now I ocmpialn. The tendency of the army appropria? tion bill this year will be strongly In the direction of the brigade post and ! away from tho smaller posts. This | will probably etlr up a fine fight in House and Senate. THINK FUGITIVE I* DISGUISED A8 GIRl, Baltimore, Md.. December 10.?In ' the belief that Pembroke W.
