AFTER HOLT'S ESTATE.
reparing For a Great Legal
Battle In Washington.
THERE ARE TWO WILLS IN THE CASE
The Contestants Allege That Judge Holt
Hated the Throckmorton After lit Made
His Will In Their Favor, and the Latter
Insist That He Hid Not, of Conrs.
Washingtos, Aug. 81. Tho services of
Bovoral detectives have been called into
requisition in the effort to ferret out the
mystory attending the sudden production
of tho will supposed to have been written
in lb 1 8 by tho lato Judge Advocate Gener
al Holt, which bequeathed an estate of
$800,000 lu two oqual parts to Miss Jose
phine Holt Throckmorton of New York
and Miss Lizzie Hynoa of Kcntuoky.
An important legal point, which would
seem to make it almost impossible for tho
will of 1873 to secure probate, is that tho
district law specifically requires that tho
signatures of witnesses to a will, as well
as tho signature of tho testator himself,
shall bo witnessed in tho prosqneo of all
parties signing, and that a clause attost-
ng to that fact shall bo inserted in tho
body of tho document itself. In tho ab
scuce of that attesting clause the executor
of tho will is required to go into court and
prove that the witnesses did sign the will in
ho presenoe of tho testator and of each
Mast Verify the Signatures.
In tho present cose tho Holt will con
tains tho words "Signed nnd sealed by mo
n the presenoe of these witnesses." Judgo
Holt's signature follows, with tho signa-
ures of the witnesses immediately below.
Thero is, however, nothing on tho docu
ment to show tho attestation of tho wit
nesses to the fact thnt it is in reality tho
fcxocutor Devlin will, therefore, in or
er to comply with tho requiromonts of
the law, bo compelled to produce witness
es to show that President Grapt and Gen
eral nnd Mrs. Sherman actually witnessed
to tho signature of this will of Judge
This would seem to be an almost impos
sible thing to ncooniplish, and, us it will
be held more especially incumbont upon
him to do this in view of tho fact that all
of tho witnesses aro dead, thero would
seem to bo nn almost insuperablo obstaclo
in tho law itself to the probation of this
The various persons interested in tho
case are gathering in Washington in an
ticipation of tho legal bnttlo which is to
determine to whom tho valuable estato is
to bo given.
No action has been taken by any of tho
parties interested to bring the attention
of tho courts to the matter. Tho heirs nt
law and their attorneys are awaiting tho
notification of the other side that they
propose to petition for tho probate of the
nystoriously recovered document.
