I'llllDKl-r-HIA. Oct. 1.-The fight be
tween two women over the distribution
of the SHn.0no.ftin est ute of the Inte William
Welghlnian, the chenUft. was abruptly
hnlted today by the production of a sm.ill
piece of note paper that had turned yellow
with age. What the piece of pMPT ci n
tuins wns not mnde public, and the few
persons who huve seen It have 'pladsed
themselves never to -reveal Its contents.
The halt In the proceedings was made at
the suggestion of counsel for Mrs. Joner
Wister. who is acting as guardian for her
daughter, Martha, the contestant.
William In 1S4 made a .will
leaving his vast estate equally among Anne
M. Weightinan Walker, his daughter, ami
two sons, William and John., Ten years
later he made a new will, leaving hia. en
tire estate to the daughter, the two sons
having died, leaving eight children. The
widow of William Welghtmaii. tho mother
of five of the children, married Jone Wis.
ter. and when Mr. Weightinan, her fpther-In-law,
died, she contested the will- on be
half of her minor daughter. Martha, op
the ground that he left a Codicil,' In whl"!i
he rrovlded for the. grandchildren. Mrs.
Walker denied that her father hnd niHde
a codicil. The contest was begurt nertriv
two years ago and wns called for flel
before Judge Ashman hi the orphan's court
' Myaterlona Pieces 'of Paper..
Xtne of the .witnesses tv1y was ' Mrs
Walker, another waa Edward T. Davis, for
many " yenrs private ancretary to Mr.
Welghtmni), who was ft witness to tho
signing of the last wllL Counsel for Mrs.
Wlater asked him If he remembered M".
Welghtman'a subsequent . codlcfl fo draw
ing, up hi wit), hiu-lng written something
on a piece of note-paper and plaolng It In
his desk. He said he hurt, but ' did not
know what Mr. Welghtman had written.
Thereupon Alexander Simpson. Jr., of coun
sel for Mrs. Wister. demanded the pro
duction of the paper. It was produced
and read by Mrs. Winter's attorneys. The
witness said It looked like the paper he
had seen Mr. Weightinan write. The ex
amination of Mrs. Walker followed,, no
further attention being paid to the piece
of paper.
After recess Mr .Simpson announced that
counsel for both sides had held a confer
ence and at the request of Mrs. Wlster'a
lawyers, the-opposing side had consented
to a continuance of the case. This sud
den halt in the proceedings caused a 'sen
sation, and rumors were put in circula
tion that the case had been compromise!.
All attorneys denied that a compromise had
been agreed to and none would give a rea
aon for the postponement. Finally It
waa admitted that the piece of paper was
the cause of the sudden turn of affairs.
Mrs. Walker was not aware that the cuse
had been contlnufd ,untll she arrived at
the. court room in the afternoon. There
was a general shaking of hands and every
oth r Indication that Mrs; Walker waa
satisfied with the arrangement
Lawyers Decline to TalL..
The lawyers for Mra. Wlstir declined to
discuss the case and all that the attor
neya for Mrs. Walker will say la that
the paper waa neither a will nor a codicil.
It Is iH'llcvcd that attorneys for Mrs. Wla
ter thought that the paper placed In the
desk waa the codicil which Mrs. Wister
saya Mr. Weightmau executed and that
when the paper was produced and found
not to be what Ihey thought It was, they
asked for a continuance.
One of the attorneya was asked what the
paper contained, and said:
"I will not t'll; It is beyond human pos
sibility for thJt paper to be made public."
Richard W. Melis. son-in-law of Mrs.
Wister and nepln w of Mrs. Walker, aald
he hoped It would never aee the light of
day. '! would lather have my tongue cut
out than reveal what was. In that p:per."
he said. ' "Cp to today when it was pil
vately shown In court only four person
In the world had seen It. The paper Is in
the possession of my aunt's topnsel dnd
its contents' will not lie made public."
While the lawyers will' not express an
opinion as to whether the case will ever
aglUn be called In court, tluy intimate that
the Wisters-will take no further at'tlmi.

county. Ohio. October 15. 1KI1. 1'ntil the
age of T lie remained with his parents on
the Ohio farm and attended St. Joseph's
college at Somerset. O. At 20 he was work
ing for hi brother Kdward constructing
telegraph lines from Toledo to Cleveland,
and later took charge of his brother's
grading contracts In Toledo, where he was
erriployed until Vf. Later he worked on
Hie construction of the North Missouri
railroad near Mexico. Mo.; from there he
went to Keokuk, la., where he disposed of
all but three of 3 head of horses for his
brother Kdward. He traded one of the
three animals for a carriage and harness
and hitched up the other two to the ve
hicle thus obtained and drove to Omaha,
arriving here July 1. lWi.
His first four years here were spent , on
a farm near the city, then he clerked for
J. J. and It. A. Brown and later resumed
telegraph construction with his brother.
Most of his time from Hl to 1SW was spent
In the west with his brother and a cousin.
With James Crelghton. a cousin, he took
a tralnload of supplies to Virginia City,
Mont., where he remained Ave years. In
J he went Into business In Omaha as
member of the firm of Crelghton Mor
gan. 1'pon the death of Kdward Crelghton. one
of the wealthiest men of the west, the
count was made administrator of the es
tate, and from that time has been one of
the chief commercial and financial main
stays of the city.
The count is ldntifled with such enter
prises as the First National bank. Cnlon
stock yards of South Omaha, Intemate
Bridge and Street Hallway company and
others. In accordance with a wish of his
brother Kdward, John A. Creighton estab

the University of Notre Dame selected him
as recipient of Its Lntacre medal.
Though Mr. Crelghton la 75 years of age
he still takes an active Interest In his
large business affairs, and It has been said
that no man In the city If more widely

say that he has never removed his kindly
hand or failed to foster the Institution
which has been founded by his family. I
know for S certainty that Cunt Creightnn
has long considered this great step, which
now places the Institution beyond a mere
precarious existence. For years the count
has watched the work done St the college,
and the present donation la an evidence of
the snlieifactlon he has felt In seeing his
lamented brother's and hit" owri Ideas car
ried out. In making this gift he is but
carrying out a steady purpose held In view
for many years. Desiring to see the col

faction given It strength and tn measure
perpetuity. His aim has always been di

was my brother's, to afford a free education

It and unable to pay. for it. At Creightnn

and these will be supplied if he cannot

the boys who go there will turn out to be

vUijn between them of Joint rates on In
terstate Business is a contract, agreement
or arrangement in relation to traffic, within
the meaning of section of the act to reg
ulate commerce, und a copy thereof must

Kinployea of Carriers.
Hut the committee does not construe the
law aa preventing a carrier from giving
neccsnnry free transportation to a person

pose of unending to the business of or

carrier, nor from giving free carriage over
Its lines to the household and personal ef
ftcts of an employe who Is reipilred to re
move from one place to another at the In
stance cf or in the lnterert of the carrier
bv which he Is employed. Nor dues the
commission construe the law as preventing
u carrier from giving free or reduced rate
of carriage over Its line to contractors for
material, supplies and men for use in con
struction, improvement or rem-wal work on
the line of that carrier: Provided, such ar
raignment for free or reducd currluue is
made a part of the specifications upon
which the contract Is based uud of the con
tract Itself.
