galf of Russian Professors Muy Refuse
to Abjure Political AIIpkIuiicp.
Bt Petersburg, Sept, 4. The edict Is
sued yesterday by the minister of edu
cation to the effect that all professors
and Instructors In the Imperial univer
sities and schools In Russia who are
members of the constitutional demo
cratic or other lllng-nl political parties,
must either withdraw from these par
ties or resign their positions, member
ship In such organizations being In
compatible with holding office and
drawing salary from a government
which these parties are endeavoring to
destroy, threatens to cripple entirely
the faculty of the university of fit.
It U probable that over half the pro
fessors and tutors who are members
of tills party will refuse to abjure
their political allegiance, and as a re
sult the Institution will see Its force
of Instructors very materially reduced.
The university of Moscow, which Is the
largest In the emlre. Is In a similar

A majority of thu employes In

Had this company any prejudice or

there is ample opportunity for exer

employes of this company that the of

always been disposed to 'reat the

At a time when the tabor mnrket Is

What Mnnnlx Says.
Charles W. iMInnlx, chairman of the
Jrlnt board of control, which board,
report has It. will meet here this
morning, said, when seen last evening,
that he had sent out no call for a
meeting of the board and that to his
knowledge no meeting would be held
The only way In which a meeting of
this board could be called, he said,
would be for tho national officers .to
recommend It. Up to a late hour last
night, Mr. Mlnnlx said, he had ' re
j celved no communication to that ' ef
fect. In any event, he said, It would
take fully twenty-four houis to gather
the members of the board In confer
ence and this only after he had Issued
tho call. From this statement It ap
I pears that no meeting of the board
will be held during toeay.
Mr. Mlnnlx said that to the best of
his knowledge, no further change had"
developed In the situation between the
trolley men and the company.

Heirs Alleged to Be Found to
Estate of Ne,gro Who Died
Hereifll864. "
Wilmington (Del.) Deposition May De
prive State of $2,200 and Forty
four Years' Interest.
One of the strangest cases that has
come before the. local probate court
will come up for a hearing probably
about Thursday of next week. It In
volves the estate of a negro whose
name ns known here was Spencer Bor.-
den and who died here In 1S64. lie
left an. estate of $2,200 and no heirs
could be found, so the money remain
ed In the bank. Several years ago, as
no heirs had yet been found adminis
tration papers were taken out, so that
In accordance with provision of the
law the estate might escheat to tho
state after five years.
Now after forty-four years there
have been found persons who claim to
be the heirs to the estate which has
had considerable of an Increment
through long deposit at Interest in the
bank. Papers were filed Ifi the case yes
terdny afternoon for Attorney Bdmund
P. Helllngs of Wilmington, Delaware,
whence hall the heirs.. , Officially the
papers ask thnt the court hold a hear
Ing for the purpose of ascertainment
of heirs to the' property. Along with
this request are filed two bulky de
positions, one from a Mrs. Virginia
Tomllnson of 847 Market street, Wll
mlngton, and the other from a negress
by the name of Emallne Davis, who
claims to be the sister of the deceased.
The deposition of Mrs. Tomllnson
states that Berden was a former slave
and that he belonged to her great
grandfather. His real name, she state,
was Spencer Lingo, but his mother's
name was Flora Burton, adopted from
the family she worked for and that
this became changed lated by him to
Berden, which Is the name In which
the funds stand In the local bank. Mrs.
Tomllnson states that the dead man
was her nurse when she was a child
and that when freed he went north
and the last she heard was that about
the end of the war he' died somewhere
around Boston or Hartford. The de
ponent salth that she Is confident the
dead man was one and the same with
Spencer Lingo and that a sister of his,
Emallne Davis, now living with her, Is
legally his relative.
The deposition of Emallne Davis
states that she had a brother by the
name of Spencer Berden and that he
died north here sometime about the
close of the war. The case will be
heard la court probably next Thursday,
although the dnte has not yet been set.
The case will be mainly one' of proving
the Identity of the dead man and show
ing that he and the former slaye were
one and the same person. The deposi
tions are dated Aug. 17, and were filed
by Attorney Dwyer of Hartford for At
torney Helllngs. There are other heirs
to the estate besides the sister. accord
Ing' to the statements made In 'connec
tion with the case. , . :
Besides the Interest in the faet'that
the estate, so long without a claimant
may be held from escheating to the
state after forty-four years have elaps
ed there Is additional Interest because
about a year ago an attempt was made
to prove that Certain persons were
heirs of the dead man; At that time
the hplrs announced were white per
sons and were disqualified as not be
ing relatives at all: r
