The will of Ihe late Bridfet Sweeney has
been overruled by the decision of County
Judge Leslie and will not be admitted to
probate. The property of Mrs. Sweeney,
which was left to Mrs. Peter O'Malley of
Twenty-sixth and California streets, will
escheat to lhev state. .
Mrs. Sweeney and her husband, were
found by the police two years ago In a
shanty In- the south part of town,- starving
and half crazed, but with 18.000 In the cel
lar. They -were both ' put Into a, hospital
and Mr. Sweeney: died. Mrs. Sweeney was
under medical care at St. Joseph's and
Edward F. Leary was appointed by the
county court to act as her guardian. The
O'Malleys offered te take her into their
home and the guardian allowed them 144 a
month for her care. After she had been
there three months a bill for 1300 was re
turned by Mra. O'Malley, which the court
refused, and (160 was allowed Instead.
More than $1,000 which was added to her
property was turned over by her attorney,
J. J. O'Connor, and Mrs. O'Malley was Im
mediately given possession or this. May 6
Mrs. Sweeney died and a will was found
which had been made after she entered
the home of the O'Malleys, and it turned
over the bulk of the 18,000 to Mrs. O'Malley.
Judge Leslie held that Mrs. Sweeney's
mind never was clear after the time she
was first taken Into custody, as tha dis
ease from which she was suffering had
gradually Impaired her mental faculties
and for that reason she was Incapable of
making a legitimate will. As she had no
legal heirs the property reverts to the stale.
