Albany, March 4 Senator "Dunham is hoa 5w-York Senator wbu to outspoken sgsiott the practice of passiag bill exempting property 1 Hew-York City from taxation. It to kta belief thst all kind of property should bear ll.alr proportlouate weight of Uka burden of taxation, and tbaa by lu general distribution lighten ths load now throat on ladtvldnal eitUens. II to almost alone In the Senate In the Independent attltada which ha baa taken. Ha baa burrowed In thetai oRleaaaod la arery other public effloa where be eould obtain statistics showing the enormous Increase In tax exemptions during the past few year and the corresponding Inoreaaa la the tax thus thrown apon tndlvidusl owner of taxable property. The figures which be baa collected and will present to the Sonata at an early day are elguifloaul Hit Investigations show a marked tendency toward soldering the relation between Church and Bute, the Bute like a patient beaat staggering along under an to err Ml Dg load of church exemption. " The general statute and existing Judicial decisions relative to the exemption of property from taxation," tsys Senstor Dunham, M are so broad and liberal tbeterery deserving charitable r benevolent, educational, religious, and literary Inatltutlon can really obtain all the relief from taxation to which It to Justly subject, and for that reason every measure designed to give special exemption from taxation should tie carefully and thoroughly considered." The claim that charity should be considered in the Case of institutions be regards as flimsy indeed. Let as consider." he says, "what New-York City has tone already for charity. It spent in the year lIHd, f. 1.550,000 to support Us liepartuient of Cuentteeand Correction. It appropriated and paid to charitable societies, under the provisions of existing special acta. $1,205,000. It paid to charitable Institutions out of the excise fund a total of 93,305,000. In addition to this there was exempted from taxation in that city fur last year, property of charitable societies, the assessed value of which, if taxed, would have been about, which, at the rate of Ui for that year (2.24 per cent.,) would have produced 9687,000. This amount of tax was an indirect appropriation to chart ties. 1 ha city of New-York, therefore, paid to charities gurtng the year Jutt closed no less a sum than -4,0tt'.i,000. Notwithstanding that the city of New- York pays millions of dollars annually for harttable purposes there is not a session of the uta legislature but what foiata or seeks to foist upon that city additional burdens by special legislation. "There waa exempt from taxation la the city of Maw-York for the year 1h0 real property, the asanaaed value of which, if taxed, would bave been f 277, HUM 00, which is more than the assessed value of tbe real and personal property at soy county In the Bute, except New-York and Kings. It is more than the ans eased value of the real estate in Albany, Erie, and West-Chester Counties combined for tbe year 1885, "Tba church and charitable property In New-York City exempt from taxation for 1888 was tn round Bgurea 75,O0O,0OO, a greater amount than the assessed value of the real estate of any county in tbe Stale, excepting Albany, Erie, Kings, and New-York, and about three timet the assessed value for 1 HS of the real estate In any one of the counties of Broome. Cattaraugus, Chautauqua, Columbia, Livingston, Montgomery, Cayuga, Niagara, Oswego, Queens, Saratoga, Bt. Uvreiii, Steuben, Ulster, or Wayne. "It to high time that thia wholeaale exemption of property from taxation In the city of New-York was restricted. If not stopped altogether, as It It becoming a vary serious question. The greater portion of this property exempt, in fact nearly all of It is south of the Harlem Biverjou Manhattan Island, an island which sustains. Including all tbe parks, avenuea and streets, but a little over 13.000 acres. These soetiy charitable and religious Institutions with their ample grounds, which they probably would not hold If they were taxed, only tend to over-erowd and" increase tbe rente of the taxable property in the city. These exemptions are an Injustice to those who are compelled by ctreum-stances to Uve in the city, or who do business there." The exact antipodes of Senator Dunham to the Senator on his right, with flowing Dundrearys and benevolent eye Mr. Plunkltt. Mr. Plunkitt pas probably introduced more bills to exempt the property of rich organizations of one olana er another from taxation in his legislative career than any other man who ever sat alongside the legislative hopper. He would exempt them all from taxatlou regardless of tbe tact tbatlu tbe and his poor constituents, the people about whom ha occasionally discourses with tearful eloquence, will have to pay these taxes of their rich aud powerful neighbors. Only to-Cay be in-truduoed a tilil which deHiie as follows all that class of property in New-York which ought to be exempted from taxes: " Every building erected for th nse of a college, corporated academy, or other seminary of learn, g; svery building tor publlo worship, every nubile school Loum, ln hospital, court bouse, and Jail, ami Um several lots whereon such buildings are situated, and the furniture belonging to each of them." Gov. Hill hat Just vetoed a bill of Senator Comstork exempting 940,000 worth of property af a young woman s association In Troy, and Senator Dunham believes be will repeal the act when he receives the bill of Mr. Plunkltt In the Senate and Mr. Crosby in the House incorporating the Ml. Mary's Free Hospital for Children, which also authorizes a large exemption. A year ago the Field Code was introduced in the Henate, but was never allowed to escape from tbe Judiciary Committee. That committee to composed of Comstock, Smith, Kellogg, Knapp, all and -code; Coggeahall, who leans toward the code, but baa not yet quite made up his mind, and McMillan, Nelson, Plurce, and Parker, all of whom are code men, Tbe chances, therefore, of the Senate having thia piece of legal work brought before It are exceedingly good. David Dudley Field baa bad no doubt about its passage by that body. Seventeen votes are necessary. Already 13 Senator Jieve declared that they are bostlle to It. Tbey are Messrs. Cotuatook, Fa-fan, Hendricks, Iioysradt, Kellogg, Knapp, Marvin, Murphy, Pitta, Sloan, Smith. Walker, and Warn pie. Messrs. Onmstock, Kellogg, Knapp, Marvin. Pitts, Smith, and Walker are Lawyer. The outspoken friends of the code are Senators Low, Plunkltt, and these lawyer: Messrs. McMillan. Nelson, Paraer, Pierou, and Kalnes. The position of Senators I a sett and GrUwold it unknown. There remain, then, an even dozen of Senator who are doubtful. Home of them genuinely so. No money waa spent in the A-lembly, and none will be used in the Senate, Information upon thia point may or may not prove useful in determining tboae doubtful ones. u suou tnere are, who are wondering wnether Ky balmy southeast wlnda will blow them good ak pending the third reading of the code. It the lawyers in the country bring pressure to bear for the code that will determine the course f doubtful Senator from the Interior. The vote will doubtless be close, and nobodv cau with any degree of certainty foretell whether it Will be a favorable or a negative vote. Tbe resolutions of the New-York ami Brooklyn Republican, Democratic, and non-partisan club tepreceting delay lu passing a constitutional aoaventlon lull, partisanship, and deferring the vote on tbe convention's work until 183$. were lubmttted to the Senate to-day. Tbe clubs urge general ticket for New-York and Brooklyn. Senator Murphy and Assemblyman Hamilton both introduced bills prohibiting the erection of mora ahoda on the North and Cast River fronts, distance of every one-fourth mile shall be kept New-York, and providing that one pier at a clear for miscellaneous traffic, and until this has been done tbe Dock Commit ton ahall effect no mora leases.

TWO LIVES LOST IN THE BURNING OF AN EIGHTH-A VENCE TENEMENT. A fire broke out shortly before 3 o'clock yesterday morning at " Linden Court." 690 and 692 Eighth-avenue. The " eourt" consisted of two fou r-story frame buildings, with a common entrance In tbe ventre, and a four-atory brick building In the rear. The ground floor at 690 waa occupied by Solomon Tearbner, a shoe dealer, and Wah Lee. a laundry man. At 692 the stores were occupied by Jacob Bopp, a barber, and Francis Leprovoat, a restaurant keeper. The dwelling portion of tbe building waa oocu- pied by negroes, tome of them induatrious and honest, the other ranging from lacy to depraved. On Feb. 12 tbe police raided the second floor of 692. Tbe Are started at Leprovoat' range and ran up tbe abaft of hemlock board which surrounded the flue to tbe fourth floor. When the alarm was given 46 persons, of whom the ma jority were women, and naif a dozen children. were In tbe front bouses. Tne Bremen found three-quarters of tbe inhabitants of the front bouses in night attire ia the street, yelling te those who had not escaped. Those who were safe reached the sidewalk by fire escape and the stairs. Those wbo were In peril were frantic ally imploring aid at tne window or from the lire escape Dajboulea. Ladder were run np and the nremen soon buttled away to aarety in out of tbe 16 persons who were in danger. Sheer cowardice alone had prevented them from reaching the street before. w. n. cnariea. nia wire Hetty, Amelia Mlteu- ell, an unknown man and woman, and two ba lnea were then expeditiously and eailantly rescued. Mr. Charlea waa led from tne third noor to tne root and down tne Ao-ioot ladder, and in rescuing the woman Mitchell the fireman swung from a main ladder with a scaling ladder, got Into a fourth-floor window, and descended with ber story after story. When these persona had been aaved cries were beard from the upper window of 690 and a woman's arma were thruat out appeal tngly. When tbe firemen got there the cries bad ceased and It was Impossible to enter tbe floor for tire and smoke. It waa supposed at the time that the person who cried Tor help bad escaped to tne root ana Jumped to the next building. The tire bad now traveled through the ton floor of both building and bad aelted on 694, a two-story frame building, occupied by Leopold Oppenhelmer. furniture dealer, and a second alarm waa sent out. it waa not until o'clock that the firemen could enter tbe upper floor of 60O. Grouping around, they found the dead body of a woman. It was partly charred and held upright by having fallen through the por- roratea seat or a cnair wnicn ane naa used In reeohing the window, which waa high above tne floor. Near her was tbe partly calcined body of a young glrL The bodies were Identified aa tboae ol Sarah L. Johnson, 50 year old, wife of Thomas Johnson, a Pullmau car porter, and Mamie Bedar, 8 years old. Mrs. Johnson lived in the room in which the died with her half-witted daughter, Henrietta, 18 years of age, ber 8 months old noy, ana Hamie, wno waa aaoptea by Mrs. Johnson after tbe child' mother aban doned her. Henrietta escaped with ber child when tbe alarm waa given, and ber mother attempted to follow her down stairs, but waa driven back by the smoke. The building are ail owned by James Richard- sou, of Harlem, tbe possessor of Gen. Washington's coach. He loses $3,500, Leprovost's loss is $5O0. Tesch net's SOO. Wah Lee's S300.

STUDENTS IN BE VOLT. ANOTHER VIEW OF THE TB0TJBLE9 AT SOGER WILLIAMS CNIVEK8ITT. Roger Williams University is still in a condition of revolt. According to tbe Rev. Dr. H. L. Morehouse, Secretary of tbe American Baptist Home Mission Society, which baa control over tbe university, a final aettlement of tbe breach now exiating between tbe President, Dr. Stiller, and the Treasurer. Theodore E. Balcb, on one side and about 100 students on tbe other, will be made at tbe next meeting of the board of tbe society, on March 14. Meanwhile the Education Committee to Investigating the difficulty, and it will present tbe result of Its investigation at tbe meeting. Dr. Morehouse aaid yesterday that tbe exerv else of the university were (till unattended by tbe students. He thought the difficulty would nerer have extended so far If there had not been aome division in tbe Faculty Itself. The atudents felt that they were supported by a portion of the Faculty and therefore went further than they otherwise would. Dr. Morehouse received yesterday letters from Dr. Sutler and Treasurer Raich. Tbey contained statements denying the charges made by tbe atudenta and giving a detailed account of their position. These two letters will be considered by tbe Education Committee to-day. Dr. Morehouse said that be thought it only Just, since the charges mad against Dr. Stiller and Mr. Batch bad been mad public, to publish the resolutions wbiob the New-York Executive Board adopted on Feb. 2.8, after a careful consideration of the difficulty and on the recommendation at the Education Committee and three members ot tbe University Board. Tbey read as follows : Suolved, That after a careful inqnlrv Into affairs at Heger Williams University. Nashville, Tenn., ws are fully persuaded that Theodore K. Balcb. asq.. la his Aaaaclal aiaaageaiMt and la his moral Influence la connection with the lastitutien. has bi without reproach, and we eaprea our diabeliof In, and eur sever reprobation of, certain unfounded charges publicly circulated against him. kMolttd, That the charges sgajnst Dr. etlflar a presented by the student do net in themselves constitute sufllclent grouad for any actlen to the direction of his removal at present from the Presidency ef Roger WUltaaaa Oalvaxsity. Dr. Morehouse said that be bad no donb there had been mistake made in the method which Dr. Stifler pursued toward tbe students. Tbe trouble might have been avoided bad be taken a little different bearing with them, but nothing bad occurred which ealled for action on the par ot tbe board. WATCHiyO PICKETT 8 CHARGE.

AS EXPERT SALESWOMAN WHO WAS BETRAYED THE POLICE LOOK ISO FOR MISS BRiaQS'S LOVER. T ie post-mortem examination of the body of I is Fannie Brlggs. wbo died at 45 Hoyt-stre it, Brooklyn, at 4 o'clock Monday morning, aho red that the eause of death was meningitis, aa I he eertiaeate of Dr. B. M. Brigg atated. Tbe police, however, came across a story yes-ten ay which led them to believe that ibe roeniu-gltl i was caused by malpractice. Several detect Ives were pat on tbe ease, and an arrest is axr -cted to follow within 24 hour. T lis la tbe story as tbe police got it Fannie Bril rgt was an attractive girl of 19 years and hsd been employed in the dry goods store of George A. 1 lettrick, at 43 Myrtle-avenue, for three year. Blu was n favorite with every one, and Mr. Het-tri k especially bad a kind word tor ber always. 8b lived with ber father. Charles H. Bnggs. at 63 De Klb-avenue, until Saturday, Feb. lP.when ah applied to Mrs. Finnegan, at 110 LawTenee-ttr tot, tor a room. She bad bad some trouble at leme, aha aaid, and could not remain there. This was about 11 o'clock at night, but the girl took possession of the room Immediately, the did not seem very well on tbe following day, and on Wednesday became very ill. At noon on that da; - br. Brigg. ef 106 WUlenghby-etreet. the fai illy physician of Mr. Hettrick. waa called In, an I after aa examination told Mrs. Finnegan that be lodger waa suffering from Inflammation ot the bo vela Mr. Finnegan waa satisfied until aliout 4 'clock the tame day, when Mr. Hettrick made bli appearance and remained for several hours In Miss Brigga'e room. She suggested te Mr. U ttrick that he should secure another physl-cli n, and upon bla consenting (be scut for Dr. W. J. Cm Ik shank on Thursday. But Dr. Cruik-shank saw Dr. Brlggs leaving the patient's room anil refused te touch the ease without hi permission. Dr. Brigg refused to see Dr. Crtiiksbank. This excited Mrs. Finnegan's suspicious. 'and upon searching Miss Brigg' room she discovered proof that tbe girl was not suffering from Inflammation of the bowels. After that Mrs, Finnegan was ordered to keep oirt of the room and she In turn ordered that MJss Brlggs be removed from the bouse. Sev. erfil attempts to move the patient were made, but It was not until Saturday last that she was Strong enough to be carried down stairs, pat in Dr. Brigg' carriage and taken to 43 weyt-atreet, a boarding bouse kept by Mrs. Ressa. a friend of Dr. Brlggs. During ail this tint Mr. Hattriek was a constant visitor and carried Miss Brlggs down to the doctor's carriage. He told Mrs. Rossa to give her everything sqe wanted. Tbe girl Unrered until early Mon day morning and died In Mrs. Rossa' arms, tsha aaid Mrt Hettrick bad been very kind to ber and tnai sue alone was responsible for ner trouble. t ne ooay was removed irom tne Hoyt-etreet use to tbe residence of tbe dead girl's parents, 638 De Kalb-avenue. on Tneedav. and the nerel was to bave taken place on Thursday, t tne uoroner stopped it itna naa tne Doay re-wed and a post-mortem examination held. The opinion oi Dr. creamer, the examining physician, waa that death was due to puerperal peritonitis, in this examination Dr. Creamer waa Mstoted by Dr. Briggs, and both physicians reached the a&me conclusion. Tbe Inquest will b held Monday. When Dr. Briggs waa seen last night, however, be said that when be was first ealled meningitis had set in. He did whst he could for the girl, add consulted with Dr. Peck, of Lawrenoe-sttvet, Tbe reason the girl was removed from Mrs, tflnnegan'a wss that she was ill treated there. She bad no fire in ber room ana eould get nothing to eat. One after- 3on the doctor ealled and found Miss Briggs anlng out tbe window asking a passer-by to get ber some food. Then be took ber to 45 Hoy t-street. There, on Bunday last, ber rather called and bad a stormy Interview with her, rebuking ber for ber behavior. This excitement enused delirium, and the girl died In a few hours. She never disclosed to Dr. Briggs doe name of the man In tbe case. " Now," said Dr. Briggs, " I want to say a word about ber father. He eame to see me and said, ' I am not very sorrv over thia affair and not sreatlv sur prised. The present Mrs. Briggs is the girl's step- i noiner, ana tney atan't get along well together. 1 ler own mother died In an insane asylum when rannle was a child. This last and fatal trouble t not tbe only dne in which she bss been.' " The father. Charlea H. Briggs, said bis daugb-er was a sweet, lovely glrL and worth v ef sonttdence. He knew all about ber leaving home two weeks ago, and said she did it to be near ber store at 43 Myrtle-avenue. Since then be bad discovered ber trouble. Do you know Mr. Hettrick P' " Yes. and all bis family. I asked blm to give ny Fannie work when she graduated from a jubllc school. I bave very decided suspicions in -egard to tbe identity of ber destrtfyer, but I Intend to kvrep them myself." George A. Hettrick, the employer of the dead zirl. to a delicate looking man about 35 years of ige. He baa a wife and family. Hla relations io Fannie Brigirs. be said last niurht. were alm- Uy those of an employer. She was a good saleswoman, and when word was sent to blm two weeks ago that she was sick be went to see her. He bad no idea of the real cause of her illness, and when he saw bow poverty-stricken she appeared to be he offered to pay for anything she wanted. She was worth $ 2,000 a year to him, and for that reason he wanted ner to get well Mr. Hettrick thought that tbe assertion that he was responsible for the girl's condition too absurd for serious consideration. Upon tbe occasion of bis first visit to Fannie at Mrs. Finnegan's, Mr. Hettrick met a strsnge young man coming out of her room. He did not know him, and never thought to ask the girl about blm. Mrs. Finnegan, the housekeeper, does not remember of any other man than Mr. Hettrick and the doctor ever visiting the bouse. In this connection a statement of Mrs. Rosea, in wbose bouse Fannie died, to theeffect that Fannie told a young married woman wbo visited her the name of ber lover, may be of Importance. Who thia woman waa Mrs. Rossa baa no idea, but tbe poiioe think tbey can find ber and through her the Identity of the young man who left Uuh Briggs's bedside aa Mr. Hettrick approached It. Although Dr. Briggs and the unfortunate girl bear tbe aame name, tbey were not related In any way. LABOR NOTES. The striking coopers are becoming discouraged because tbe bosses are able to get all tbe barrels tbey need in spite of the vigilance of the strikers. The dull season, too, to coming on, and soon there will not be work enough for all the men in tbe trade. Consequently a break baa taken place and a number ot the strikers have applied for work. Complaints are made among elgarmakers that several manufacturer are trying to force their employes to live in tenements owned by the bosses, and to pay any rent the bosses msy exact. The men say that tbe bosses think of opening grocery and butcher's stores and compelling their people to purchase supplies from them. The silk weavers are complaining that tbe Lion Silk Company, at 518 West Thirty-fifth-street, to importing weavers under a contract in violation of law. A member of tbe company said yesterday that the concern was a branch of tbe firm of Bodlner At Hurllmann, of Zurich. It was started here about a year ago because tbe tariff on silk In various countries affects their manufacture in Switzerland, and consequently the business waa being enlarged In this country. Tbe company could not get a sufficient number of efficient bands in tbit country, and eould not afford to wait until pupils here oould learn the business. Therefore skilled weavers were brought over from Switzerland, and their passage money, which was advanced by tbe firm, waa to be deducted from their wages. Some of tbe weavers became dissatisfied with tbelr wages and broke their ooatracta, so now the firm renews Its contracts with ths band after tbelr arrival bare. A NEW MISSISSIPPI BRIDGE. St. Louis. Mo., March 4. News of the passage of the Grand Tower Bridge bill by Congress reached the offices of the St. Louis, Arkansas and Texas Railroad to-day, and there waa much rejoicing over the result. The bill waa passed late last night, and in a shape which is satisfactory to tbe company. The length of the channel span Is to be 650 feet, aad tbe height 85 feet. Tbe opposition demanded 750 feet and 90 feet, but a compromise was effected on the basis stated. The height of tbe bluffs at that point on the river to SO feet, and hence th company could not build at less than the required height without cutting it down, and tbe length ot tbe span is not an obstacle in the way of construction, it is proposed to build a cantilever bridge similar to the one built for the Mtabigea Central over Niagara Kiver, which to something ef a wonder of engineering. The bridge to oomposed of two piers, on which two dtotinct atruetuma rest, meeting la tbe oentre, tbe base being at each pier.

Taaaji Angel, the lawyer for the prisoners, claimed that Aaoipn Baunaera naa nothing to do with the business and ought to be discharged. The in spectors told how they bad tracked the men for some time, and at last received a letter from a farmer who had been asked to buy tbe M green articles" from Hays. They got him to answer the swindler's eiroular, and thus found tbe " sswaust offlce." vt hen tbey entered the room Hays said: " You have taken mo all by surprise.

THE CRUISE OF THE AROO. TWO CAPTAINS DIE, ONE SHOOTS HIMSELF VESSEL WRECKED AT LAST, The iron bark Argo lies on the rocks under Fort Ploolet, at the entrance to tbe harbor of Cape Haytien. Other vessels have gone to pieces on tbe same rooky bar, but a special Interest surrounds tbe Argo, for ber loss was unnecessary. Her last voyage was an eventful one, and tbe crew of this prosaic German bark had almost as many adventures as did the sailor on tbe ancient galley of the same name. Little gold, bow- ever, either in the form ot a fleece or in the more convenient form of coin, has rewarded them. Capt R. B. Kelly, of the steamship Ozama, which arrived yesterday from Haytiau ports brought the story of the unfortunate bark to thia port The Argo was built at Hamburg in 1H75, and ber owner to M. G. Amsinck. Sbe was 203 feet long, 33 feet beam, 20 feet in depth, and of (HI tons burden. Cupt Stick, a veteran navigator and an able follower of ocean paths, was in command when she left Rangoon for what proved to be the last voyage of both Captain and bark. Rio de Janeiro was the port of destination. All weut well at first Rough weather wat encountered, but tbe vcancl, stanchly built, well manned, and ably tailed, bowled merrily along toward Iiio. When a few more daya would bave brought ber Into port Capt. Stick fell ill. He grew rapidly worte and died before land was sighted. Ills body waa lowered over the aide into the sailors' oemetery. The mate took command. In a day or two Rio waa reached, and there a part of the cargo waa discharged snd more taken In. Tbe Argo'a voyage was not finished. She was to follow np the coast, stopping at various ports. When aii was ready for the start yellow fever seized the Captain, who bad been tbe mate, and In a few hours be too was dead. The second officer, named Williams, was then put In command, and the Argo sailed northward. Two Captains had died on board in one voyage. Tbe sailors, naturally superstitious, began to think that fate had marked the bark and ber commanders for destruction. Day after day of tbe pleasant voyage np the eoast passed, bow-ever, and they sped along under a fair wind. Storms seemed unknown, the recovered tbelr wonted spirits, aud visions of disaster haunted them less and less. St Thomas was sighted, and for a day the Argo rode at anchor ia the harbor. Then she sailed for Cape Haytien, and ber third Captain congratulated himself that the voyage waa nearly done. How nearly done It was for himself and the good Argo be did net guess. When Cape Haytien came Into view on Feb. 13 tbe Captain stood at tbe wheel. Suddenly there waa a bump, and the grinding and wrenching told that the Argo was on rocks. She bad struck on the outer reef. Then the third and final tragedy ot the Argo'a last voyage waa enacted. The Captain rushed below. Not one of tbe crew bad a thought of what was in bto mind. He came tearing up the companion way and the startled crew saw a revolver in his band. Tbey wondered what be Intended to do. Their wonder turned to horror. The Captain leaped to the rail, placed the revolver at bis hsad, fired, and with a cry toppled over the aide of the vessel. Not a trace of his body waa seen again. Aa soon aa the crew recovered from tbelr horror they took to the boats and rowed ashore. Hardly bad they landed when, looking back, tbey saw the Argo glide off of the rocks. With all sails set and no one at tbe wheel she started on a short and final cruise. For halt an hour sbe erulaed the harbor. Then sbe struck the rocks again, this time to stay until broken up. The crew returned to Germany on n ship which sailed soon after. G. Amsinck, ef this elty, to agent for M. G. Amsinck, but be knows nothing about the Argo. as she was not consigned to this port THE NBWBESBY LITIGATION. Chicago, IIL, March 4. A phase of the litigation growing out of the settlement of the estate of the deceased millionaire, Walter H. Newberry, was referred for disposition to a Master In Chancery to-day. Edward H. Newberry was a remote connection of Walter H. Newberry, and by the terms of tbe will Inherited something like a one-hundredth Interest In the property left after a one-half division. One bait, it was provided, waa to be set aside as a fund for tba erection of a publlo library in Chicago. Edward H. Newberry's share In the other halt has been estimated to be worth la the neighbor hood ot $35,000. On the strength of bto Inheritance he Is said to bave executed bonds aggregating $1 OO.OOa Part of these bonds were disputed of to Buttner At Farewell, others to a banker named Brown, and still more to a broker named Thompson, all of Detroit It is asserted tbst tbe bonds Issued first were executed before Mr. Newberrv reallv bad Possession ot his Inherit- auoe. Thia property waa coming to him, but he could not get nolo or it until tne oeatn 01 the widow. Some year elapsed between ber death and tbe death ot ber husband, and meanwhile tbe bonds were being issued. Tbe point raised is whether a man ran execute bonds on his expectations; whether be can sign away bis interest in a property of which be to not in actual possession according to law.
