TRUSTEESWANTDI SCH AflGE Death of the Widow Removes Obstacles to a General Distribution. all; In a bill for construction of will, l.s trlbutlon of property and discharge of .rupees. Henry R. Macfarlane. Fre-icr-M W. MatfartafM and John M. Djw sett. u trustees under the will of hr iTian A Wid. mann. dl)rnaaWI. h jve brought suit against Emilie Macfar lane. Martha Berger. Herman A.

Uin. in order that the ciurt may construe the will as to the mun-Ii.-r of distributing the legacies andCT the will. They also ask for a decree directing the manner in which and the persons to whom the property in the bands of the plaintiffs shall be distrib uted, and for the discharge of the plain tiffs as trustees. The case hinges entirely on the fp.rs tlon of settling once and for all the be stowal of the legacies made by the late Judge Widemann opoa Ma h. irs. The K-Hth of Mrs Widemann. flllliiw aaj that of her husband, makes th petition In the present Instance a natural-one, imperative for the closing up of the matters of the estate. The death ot Mrs. Widemann removed all obstacles to a general distribution of the entire estate into the apportionments ret forth In the will. The orators, by their attorneys, Hatrh A Silllman. respectfully show to MM i ourt . That they were duly named the trustees In the will of the late J'idge Wid-mann. duly filed in the Circuit '"'-urt. and duly admitted to probate on March 17, On December 7. 1SW, .t'r as executors under the ili filed a petition for their discharge aa executora which was heard on March JO of this year, whereupon an order was made approving the an mnts ami dis charging them from further res; on sihillty. On April II the executors tiled a r. celpt In court for $2.1.287.84. I in,; the total balance of the funds In t'.eir hnnda at the time of their discharge by the court. In the will of Herman A. Wldemt.nn. the latter disponed of all of his p-m.i-uary estate to the orators upon trut and to pay out of the same to Kau mana Widemann. his wife, an annuity of fS.OOO. and Umn her death to nay certain legacies to the several chil; en of the deceased, save and except the eldest. Otto, whom the orators chuge and believe to have pre-deceased the teatator. A further "tatenient relative to the on. otto. Is to the effect that the lat t went to sea and followed the call ing of a aeainan prior to the year 1871. That in that year said otto Widemann I- parted for parts unknown as the ora U n have been Informed and veritably l iieve. and since that time he has never been heard of by any member of tne famil.

DAMON has Introduced a n.-w rtrain Into his milking herd by lm porting a new bull and heifer of the noted Ayrshire breed. The animals are both pictures of what ma be produced by scientific culture and the eercla of care and are well worth a visit to the Moanalua ranch. The cattle were landed from the S. 8. Aorangi last week and were former ly members of one of the best herds in Queensland. Australia. They were selected by Mr. P. R. O lrdon, head of the Brands Department of the co!ony of Queensland and who as a Judge of good stock is second to none In Aus tralia. For purity of breed and all round excellence In size and quality, the Here ford stock, as now raised In Queensland, ranks first. They attain a weight of twenty-five hundred pounda. or .considerably over a ton. on grass feed only, no dry food such as oil cake. etc.. being fed them. As the American cat tleman would aay they are left to "rustle" for themselves, roaming at will over the downa and forest lands of that great country. The price of the Ayrahlre dairy rattle and Hereford stock la such as to be within the meana of every dairyman or atock raiser. Freight Is also very reasonable and If the condition of the animals Just received by Mr. Damon is a criterion, the risk of transportation Is of an infinitesimal nature. Tbe climate of Que t.sland greatly resembles that of the Hawaiian Isl ands. The beat herds of -attle in Auatralla never aee a cattle dog; the lasso Is an unknown fear and the animals are dally herded by careful and eompe-t.-nt rnfn who thoroughly understand their business and whose main object la to ke ep their chargea as quiet as possible. So pronounced are the good re--nlts .f this system of cattle-tending that one may ride through herds of cat tle that show so little apprehension of a stranger's presence as to merely walk out of his way. cattle raising In Hawaii has not hitherto been an unqualified success and It la the opinion of many veteran stockmen, that until the whirl of the laseoo and the noisy antics of wild cowboys become things of the past, the cattle of these Islands will be wild, poor in condition, and when killed, hardly fit for fir'ane.
