FOUND HIS WILL. The Property of John A. Steinberger. His Estate Has Long Since Been Distributed— Complications sure to Arise. A peculiar case has just orae to lizht in tin* Superior Court, where the will of a man long since dead, an whose estate has long since been distributed among his rela tives, has bean filed for probate. The will in question is that of John A. St?inberger, who died in San Francisco on October 18, 1892. leaving an estate ap praised at $32,274. The property con sisted of certain policies of insurance, cer tain shares of bank and ruining stock, real estate in various pans of the State and some cash. A3 no will came to h and and the heirs of the deceased were easily iound, in the mouth of October last year a decree of distribution was made dividing the property among the next of Lin. These consisted of two sisters of the de ceased, Sirs. Elizabeth Hall and Mrs. L. binion; three brothers, U. M. Steinber ner, A. B. J-t-mberger and Frank P. Stein berger, and another bister, Mrs. Annie lil-cke. Some of the heirs were m debt to the estate in various sums, but the prop erty \v»s finally distributed, without any thought of there being in existence any testamentary document. Yesterday, however, a bombshell was thrown Into the camp of Seinbergt-r's luiri by the filinc of what purports to be the last will and t?st:wnentoi ihe deceased. The instrument is quite, lenethy, and is written on foolscap paper. Without oien tion of revocation of auv former wills ii declares Itself to be the last will and testa ment of the deceased. In tin* will the dead man's property is divided as follow* : A policy of $5000 in the Equitable Life Assurance Company of .New York, originally intended as a be quest to th« testator's wife and children, but those parties beine dead, is now be. qnoathed to the testator's sister, Mrs. Elizabeth C. Hal', by a written deed of trau-fer; then ti another sister, Mrs. L. Robinson, is. trausf-rred a deed of trust I covering a loan of $16,100 upon property belonging to Mrs. Kuuinson, and situated in Pueblo. Colo. In addition, the testator foregoes all claims ngainni his brother, C. M. Stein uerger, and bequeaths him $500, ami tin same, course is pursued with the brothers A. B. and Fr»nk P. Stein be rser. To his sister, Mrs. Anniu Blecke, the testator bequeaths $2000. Other bequests are: To Mrs. Victoria Norri?. S20«i0; to Miss Belle Hall, $2000; to Frank S. Douty, the testator's one-ihiru interest in l*>o acres in the township of iiakersfield. K.tu County, and a similar Interest in 383 acres of laud situated tv- In live mll?s of I*ak»r«fielci ; a present is made to this beneficiary ..I a sum of 12868 97, which the testator advanced toward the purchase of this property. The testator's sisters, Mrs. L. Robinson and Mrs. Elizabeth C. Hall, are made resi duary legatees. Frank S. Douty, being made sole executor, files this newly iouud will for probate. The case will prove a complicated one, astlie heirs are scattered far and wide. Flags of Ail Nations. To-morrow evening the ladins of tlie California-street M. E.
