The History of the Struggles of the
Dead Brother of W. U. Van-
The contest of the will of the Into
Commodore Vanderbilt , in which
Cornelius J. Vandorbilt's sister , Mrs.
Lit Han , was the contestant , was one
of the moat protracted and bitter
controversies ever heard or deter
mined in an American court' and
lasted ever 200 days. Hy the terms
of n will executed in January , 1875 ,
the Commodore mndo his son William
11. his urinciplo logaluo , giving to Ins
wife 85,000,000 in cash , aomo other
bequests to hia other relatives , and to
Cornelius J. the inouno only of $200-
000 to bo invested for his benefit. In
a codicil executed in the sumo year he
extended the bequests by civiiiy to
hia grandson , Cornelius J , , $500,000 ,
nnd to his grandsons , William K. ,
Frederick W.nnd Qoorgo $2,00,000
each , lie did not , however , augment
the trust annuity to Cornelius J. , of
which William U. Vanderbilt , Cor
nelius , and William K. , sons of Wil
liam H Vanderbilt , and Mr. Samuel
Barton were created tiusteos , with di
rections to pay the annuity only In
such sums and at such times as scorned
to them advisable. To each of his
five daughters ho gave $500,000 , Mrs.
La Bau being included among them
THE TRIAL OP TUB CONTEST
was not begun until November , 1877.
Cornelius J. encouraged hia sister in
the suit , and ox-Judgo Jeremiah
Black , Scott Lord , and Col. Ethan
Allen were among the most promi
nent of the contesting counsel. On
the side of the proponent William II.
Vanderbilt , who was present in the
Surrogate's'court during nearly every
day of the long and tedious trial , ox-
Judge Comstock , of Syracuse , nnd
Mr. Henry L. Clinton were the moat
conspicuous lawyers. The contestants
in order to establish the Commodore's
mental weakness and incapacity , in
troduced the most extraordinary testi
mony as to his habits of life , lusphys-
ical ailments for a quarter of a centu
ry back , and his association with pe
culiar persons , such as Spiritualist ) *
and fortune-tollers. The medical ex
perts almost literally dissected the
dead man in the presence of the
audience by their minute descriptions
of the condition of every part or organ
of his anatomy. Charges of bribery
and subornation of perjury during the
trial were also flung back and forth ,
but finally , on March 19 , 1879 , Sur
rogate Calvin rendered a most volu
minous opinion and decision sustain
ing the will at all points. Prior to
the beginning of this struggle Corne
lius J. Vanderbilt had
CEOON A SUIT IN T1IE SUFRKME COURT
to recover from William H. Vanderbilt
bilt § 100,000 which ho claimed the
latter had promised him on condition
that ho refrained from contesting tno
will. This suit was not'triod or dis
posed of until the close of the will
contest was reached , and the plaintiff
was exerting himself strenuously
through his counsel to bring it on for
trial. Mrs. La Bau also was making
preparations to appeal in the will con
test , and there wan a prospect of a
very extended litigation. Soon after
the Surrogate's decision , however ,
diacreob friends appear tohavo exerted
themselves to bring ' harmoni
ous settlement of the various differ
ences , and negotiations were begun
through coansol to that ond. Early
m April , 1879 , it became known that
a settlement had been reached , and
the various suits were discontinued. a
Although no really authentic state
ment was then made as to the terms
of the settlement , it became generally
accepted that William H. Vanderbil't
had consented to give Cornelius J < ,
and Mrs. La Bau $100,000 each and
an allowance of ? § 250,000 for the liqui
dation of their counsel foes and other
legal indobledueas. Facts which sub
sequently came to light , however ,
showed that the settlement' actually
mndo was not reached until May ,
1879 , and that , BO far as Cornelius J.
was concorncjd , his brotlforWilliam
II. had merely provided for him a
handsome income derivable from a
fund of which Worcester , Secretary
of the principal Vnnderbilt railways ,
was made trustee. Almost itnmedi- w ,
atoly after the settlement Cornelius J.
wont to Europe , accompanied by hia B w
particular friend , Mr. Terry , and remained -
mained abroad over six months. )
Cornelius J. Vanderbilt did not ex O'
hibit of the oturdy rugged O'K
any , , phyii-
ical qualities which BO greatly distin B
guished his father , the old Commo W
dore. Ho had his statue alone , being WV
over air feet tall , but in the middle V
his lito oren ho was iilendor , poor
dovolopol , and without much phy ai
sical enorgf' ; and as ho grow older ho aidi
began to stoop at the shoulders , and di
displar the wanness and attenua diol
tion of ftmures that usually betray tl :
Lho coiiBiniptivo | tendency. Hia fea hi
tures , uniko [ the Xfominodoro'B , were hiw
Jolicato and by no means strongly m
narked. His hair was of a dark brown ri
uul wheu ho was not moro than 30 th
pours of ese it was streaked with gray. Sf
Llis nose was small , his lips thin , and Sfm
iis mout'i narrow , and his dark eyes m
-voro rather lustreless , but always had
kindly , genial expression. m
HIS FINANCIAL WJUKNEfiHKS.
Cornelius J , Vanderbilt was always of >
omowlmt disinclined to pay hia debts an
ivon in tie days bgforo hia , father bo- th
ame angered with him for his reck- la ;
ess habits. Ho borrowed money from dr
friends in his early yours and. ab- diM
olutely refused to make settlements. M
SxcopUona prove a rule , it is said , and ip
notallo : exception to his general enmi
liainclination to Bottle his indebted- mi
icss wia the payment by Cornelius J. bu
the daughters of Horace Greoley of , <
largo debt which he had owed to ya
heir father for many years before his ve
loarh. The exact time when Horace
5reolojr began to lend Cornelius J. he
noneylias never been publicly stated ,
ior haiany other reason for the loans
ver boon given except that Mr.
treeley'a generosity induced him to
iccositnally assist a ycung man who : ,
ileadec his distress to him. The loan
fjgregtted about ? 10,000 , nnd Mr.
ireolej took notes for them. Jt ia
eportcd that UIOBO loans caused a tot
roak u the friendly relations that cai
an previously exiatod between Com. lOH
lodore Vanderbilt and Mr. Groeley. yoi
THE CJUEELUY LOANS
omainod unpaid until April 7 , 1879 ,
tint day Cornelius J
, Vanderbilt wo
let Its. Ida Qrooloy Smith and Miss jut
labriftlo Greoley , the daughters of ing
loracj Greeley , and their advisers at BIX
. ' * *
the Hoffman lloitso , nnd there paid
them $01,000 , the principal of the
loans , with accrued intercrt. It w
at first reported that William II.
Vanderbilt paid this money for hia
brother , but Cornoliui J. indignantly
denied the statement , and declared
that ho paid the tlobt out of the first
1 irqo Hum of money ho obtained , and
that ho always intended to pay It.
Soon after the Vanderbilt family liti
gation I Zichariah E , Simmons , who
was for many years n friend nnd com
panion ! of Cornelius J. Vanderbilt de
manded I the payment to him of ? 50-
Ii 000 II I which , ho assorted , the latter hnd
conyonantcd i to pay him when all his
difficulties ( with ills brother wcro sot-
II tied I , Cornelius J , rejected the de
mand I , and last Juno Judge Donolnio
! gave judgment for Cornelius on the
Bround that the condition on which
the $50,000 was to bcoomo duo was
the success of the effort to overthrow
! Commodore Vamlerbilt'a will , and
that no proof was botoro him that the
effort had succeeded.
Tlln REASON OIVKN
by Cornelius J. for not taking an na
tive part in the will contest was that
his brother William U. promised to
give him $1,000,000 if ho would keep
quiet. Aa ho did not receive this
sum ho began n suit for it in the Supreme -
promo Court while Mrs. La Bau'scaso
was pending before the Surrogate.
A struck jury was selected to try the
caHe. Whila active preparations were
making for nn immediate trial ho sent
n lacnnio note to his attorneys tolling
them to stop proceedings and ask no
questions. The case was discontinued.
After the compromises of the celebrated
will contest it is said that Cornelius
wont into Wrall st-oot nnd under the
directions of pcraona standing close to
William H. ho was nblo to mnko n
number ot clover moves , but immedi
ately after reaping his big profits ho
struck out for operations of his own
IIB WAS SUCCESSFUL ,
nnd ho soon lost nn amount far great
er than ho hnd won. "Cornoil was
nlwnys n singular sort of nn individu-
n ) , " said ono of the deceased man's '
intiinato acquaintances nt the Hoff
man House last night , "From the
time ho waa always at outs with every
body. The only thing ho ever did
that pleased the old Commodore was
in Ins marriage with n Conncctiuut
lady. His father was greatly pleased
with the match , nnd gave $50,000 in
cash as a wedding gift. While his

Strange Romances Told by the Tomb
stones on Rocky Mountain Graves.
There arc some queer headstones
scattered throughout Colorado in
lonely places which mark the butt end
of many n man in n singular manner.
In lonely mountain gulches the tra <
eler will suddenly run across a rude
grave mark , which tolls in a fow-ilncs
the cause of death of the form which
moulders bolow. * 0no of no queerest
of these epitaphs is 9.35 nt Florida , a
little town of les i than 100 inhab
itants , on the Son Juan extension , of
the Denver . .c JRio Grande. The grave
over which the epitaph ia written lies
Hitle way from town beside the rail-
rodd , and waa discovered by a pas
senger who wandered away while a
break in the train gear waa being re
paired. Over the grave waa a rude
cross bearing the inscription :
"Ho had Band ! u his craw ,
Hut was slow on the draw.
So we planted him out in the dew. "
And on the opposite side :
"John Dee , Now York ;
To fiesh 4G cnllbrc ,
May C , 1881.
Kilt by old Hall and n Gun. "
This is a succinct history of the
man's fate. Thu nimo , John Dee ,
plainly indicates that the man was
unknown. It is definitely settled
that "ho had sand in his craw , "
which , , in minors' parlance , moans
that ho was a bravo man , "but ho
was slow on the draw , " and "Old
Hall and hia gun" blow his light out.

In May , 1880 , a tragedy occurred
ever ' in Gunnison City by which
"Dutch Bill , " a noted desperado , was
sent on the final trip lo that bourne
whence no desperado ever returns.
Dutch had killed a man ut Buena
Vista and fled to Gunniuon. Ho wan
ying in n tent , with n pistol on each In
lido of him , when n sheriff nrrivedand
woke him. Dutch did not like to bo
iiatutbed , and opened fire upon the ri
jllicer , who ran , but , shooting back
hrough : the tent as ho fled , ho killed
iia man by'a ohanco shot. Dutch
yas burled with impoaing ceremonies
a little knoll near the Tomichi
Ivor , and u withered branch was
hrust into the ground to murk the
ipot. On this stake waa written in

the skeletons down as the result of
