CHICAGO, Jan. s.—An important
proposition will be considered at the
annual meeting of the Young Women's
Christian Association which open
ed here today. It is nothiuj less than
the proposition of forming a merger
with the Women's Christian Associat
ion. The Young Women's Christian
Association was organized in 1894 as
the result of a quairel in the mother
organization, the Women',s Christian
Association. Sinoe then the young
association has met with remarkable
suooess, while the mother organizat
ion remained practically at a stand
still. Itjsjexpected that the merger
of the two organizations will be of
great benefit to both associations and
will enable them to carry on their
work with greater success than hereto-1
fore. !

Charles T. Yerkes Would Have Chang
ed His Will but the Doctor Advised
Against Lawyer Seeing Patient to
Get His Signature.
NEW YORK,,Tan. s.—The Times to
day says:
It was learned yesterday that in tbe
hope of prolonging the life of Chas. T.
Yerkes. Dr. H. P. Loom is, Mr. Yerkes'
physician, by a word of professional
advice to bis dying clients lawyer, Ad
rian H. Joline, prevented the signing cf
a new will or codical, which would
radically have upset the present dis
position of the Yerkes estate.
Dr. Lonmis gave his consent to Mr.
Yerkes directing the drawing of a new
will three weeks before iiis death.
It was given then only because the
sick man constantly talked about the
necessity ot a new will being made.
It preyed on his mind so greatly that
Dr. Looinis, in tiie hope cf restoring
bim to mental quiet and pcise, that he
might better flight off death, finally
permitted the patient to have an inter
view with jjhis lawyer, Mr. Joline.
It took Mr. Joline two or three doys
to draw up the new will, and in the
meantime Mr. Yerkes became much
weaker. He was stili conscious when
the lawyer retained with th» docu
ment, but he was in such condition
that Dr. LoomTs considered it unwise
to have bim meet the attorney again,
or attempt to attend todo nuybusinpss.
The hoped lor rally of Mr. Yerkes did
not come. He lapsed into unconscious
ness and the Joline will was never
The Yerkes will published yesterday
exists only as the result of the care of
Dr. Loomis for his [patients. A word
from his and the name of Chsa. T.
Yerkes would have been affixed to a
document which it is said would have
changed the disposal ofjiis $ 15,000,
--000 in almost every particular save
in the bequests to the city giviug the
art galleiies, the family mansion and
the Bronx hospital.
PORTLAND, Jan. s.—The United
States government is prepariug for
one of the greatest legal straggles iv
its history, soon to be inaugurated,
when an attempt will be made to
wrest from eastern timber kings and
stock gowers the millions of aoies of
public land fraudulently acquired.
Vast tracts of land iv Washington,
Oregon and California and other west
ern states are at stake. They are now
held by millionaires who will spend
their money freely in order to retain
their booty. Civil suits have been in
stituted already in a few cases.
The great bulk of the timber lands
in Wasliintgon and Oregon are now
concentrated in the hands of half a
dozen holders. It is estimated that at
least two-thirds of it was obtained by
fraud. Suit has already been begun
for the'reeoovery of 100,000 acres in
Washington and Oregon, bnt aa yet
the government has scarcely made a
beginning in attempting to reoover its
stolen land.

Question of Disbarring Ex-Judge from
Practice of Law in State of Wash
ington to be Heard Before Judge
Fointdexter of Spokane.
Former Judge C. Victor Martin was
brought into court Wednesday even
ing in answer to the nineteen disbarr
meut charges filed against him by the
bar association of f helau county.
Martin moved that Judge Steiner
appoint a jadge frcm some other dis- ,
| trict to try the case. Frank Reeves, !
! who led the prosecution argued against ]
j such a proceeding on the grounds that;
! Judge Steiner, knowing Martin, would ;
ibe mor" inclined to take a charitable [
I view of the case than a judge who ;
I would give his cecision merely on the
[testimony that was oifeied.
After an argument was heard from
I both sides Judge Bteiner announced
i that he would not hear the ease. He
| stated that be was overwhelmed with
1 work, cases a waiting him in Okanogan,
I Douglas and Ferry couuties that he
would not have time to try the case.
; but would call in a judge from some
j other district.
He named judges Page?, Brent?,
Poindexter, Hnnicke, Kennan and
Chadwick as jurists, who, in his opin
ion, would give an impartial neaiiug
co the case,. He suggested that the
attorneys select a judge satisfactory
to both sides from the list submitted.
The court announced that, iv order
to give Judge every possible
udvantage, he would hear the demur
rers that Mar:in |tiled, on Friday
morning. He gave as a reason the fact
that a judge hearing tbe demurrers
would get an idea of the case from
the arguments. 'Martin objected to
this proceeding but was overruled by
the court.
This morning. Judge H. C. Neal. of
Davennoit, and H. E. Humphries, of
Seattle, met with the representat
ives of the prosecution, Frank Reeves,
A. N. Gorbin and W. A. Grimshaw,
met with Judge and decided
apon having judge Poindexter, of Spo
kane, hear the case.
