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 Weightin.in 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 today. ' 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. 1 " Cnre a Cole n One Day, Take laxative Bromo Quinine Tablets.

COUNT MARES GREAT GIFT (Continued from First rage ) annex, which after today should be called St. John's ball; hut his heart was most drawn to the parent of them all, Creightnn college. Kdward Creightnn and Ills wife were of one mind In desiring to establish a free college, where those bereft of fortune, f well as the more favored could acquliv. without money and without price, a thorougli and romplete Christian educa tion, such as would tit them to enter with honor any walk of life. In Us infancy this college waa sufficiently provided for by the endowment left by Its founderT but as Ita work and Importance grew It be came evident to Mr. Crelghton that It needed larger resources; and. therefore, for a number of years he lias tilled the gap by continual donations, without which It could ml have lived. I ain glad here publicly to make tills acknowledgement of an immense debt that Cliristinn education owes to him. But tills day and this hour have increased this debt, for he saw the need of providing for the extension and perpetuity of a work whose, result) have Satisfied him. This is why he signalizes his seventy-fifth birthdav, his diamond Jubilee, by a princely gift whose magni tude will place the Crelghton free college beyond the reach of uncertainty, and se cure for It a bright future. I bold In my hand the deed for two pieces of property whose value approximates $4n(l,il00. These are given for the specific purpoae of sup porting and maintaining Crelghton college as a free Institution of .learning for all time. I accept this gift from our co-founder on behalf of the hoard of trustees of Crelghton university, in the name of the faculty and students, gnd in the name of the unborn generations which will profit hv this beacon light of Xnowledge erected and maintained by the munificence of the Crelghton familv. May tills institution live, may It flourish, may it endure; and mav the author of Its prosperity long sur vive, to nee the fruition of his many bene factiona and the fulfillment of his Jiopes. as well as to enloy the reward )t his charitable deeds, for the uplifting of man kind. - . . - .

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 lished a free college for the education of youth, regardless of color or creed.

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 lege endure, he has by this splendid bene faction given It strength and tn measure perpetuity. His aim has always been di rected toward the permanent good nf the college.

His kindly face beamed with good nature as he rtcelved th" congratula tions of his numberless friends. He said: "For some time 1 have been fhinkinti of putting Crelghton college on' a solid financial basis. The work there 'by the Jesuits Is expanding year by year. ' There Is nearly double the numlvr of professors at the college, now than there wns tin vtars ago- and a large lw.dy of b-vntd men ennnot live on f.lr or promises. These men nre doing an linni'nsc work for the weKt. nnd ns long as they are willing to devote themselves to the good of others. I. for one, am pleased to h ahlo to -see they hall not Want a decent sustenance. I feel that I could not give to a beltr- cause than to education of the youth of the west. 'i have every confidence in Father Dow ling and bis staff of profsors thit the revenue from the p,'-e.,pnt gift will be bene, ficlally used for the young men of the west, for whom they ni'v devoting their lives and labors Men who work without flnv kind of Salary and fur their ioth"s and necessary food make me wisli that I bad double the amount to give them "I have one child, and that Is Crelghton university, and I think that since the early 8)'s. when it was founded by my brother, Kdward, and his. wife, It hus grown Into pretty lusty manhood. I be lieve the college, under ti e present Man agement, has. it magnificent career before It. I take the keenest Interest in tt, find I know that In scholarship it la as good as any of the Catholic-colleges of the land. Young men who have pissed through that Institution are beginning to make their mark and make their Influence felt wher ever they nre. "It bos always been tny ambition, as it was my brother's, to afford a free education to all young men whor were d serving of It and unable to pay. for it. At Creightnn college a boy may get hia education with out costing him a cent except (or books, and these will be supplied if he cannot afford to buy them. All I expect Is that the boys who go there will turn out to be gentlemen a.nd good living Catholics. I know for certain that If they tuk advan tage of the opportunities offered them there they will be good men." .
