Craven filed a second petition in the superior court for a family allowance from the estate of the late James G. Fair. The petitioner, as in the appli cation filed some months ago, sets forth that she is the widow of the dead capitalist. She states that no allowance has been made her from the $12,000, 000 estate of Fair, the income of which is $300.000 a year. She asks for an allowance of $500 a month, to take effect from the date of Fair's death, December 28. 1894. It is said the filing of the petition heralds the opening of the battle by Mrsu Cra ven to establish her relations to Fair. present self-government.
