Griffin as counsel for H. B. Holline. In the petition it is set forth that the real estate owned by Mr. Y snare is worth "about 32.000.O00" "and his personal property "about 833.000." This is an error in the entry on the petition, as it Is the personal property which is worth " about J2.OU0.0UO ,T and not the real property.

The ninth Duke ef Manchester left a very small estate, and his widow the Dowager Duchess has not been considered wealthy. The young Duke became heavily entangled financially His landed estate consists of 'Kimbolton Castle and Brampton Park, in Huntingdonshire, England, and Tanderagee Castle in County Armagh. Ireland. The first two properties were rented, and it is at Tanderagee Castle that the young Duke and his bride, whom he married in London last Fall, are making their home. . - Before the estate goes to the Dowager Duchess the collateral inheritance tax of 1 per cent will have to be paid to the State. It is estimated that when the estate is finally appraised thla tax will be about $2.-.0u0. Mr. Yznaga was a member of the banking firm of H. B. Hollin & Co. He was about forty-eight years old at the time of his death. His sister the Dowager Duchess la ahnut fvn veara ilH-r am) th vmm Duke, her sole heir, is twentr-fpar years old. - WANTS FATHER DECLARED DEAD Samuel H. Morrow want his father. James Morrow, declared legally dead, and at the same time he wants an accounting of the estate of William McMahon, who died several years ago. To this end the trial of the action was begun before Justice , Glldersleeve in the Supreme Court yesterday. .William McMahon was at one time a well-known baseball player and manager. He was also the owner of the old Haymarket, at Thirtieth Street and Sixth Avenue. When he died he left an estate worth about 1100.000. Pfu-t of the estate was put in trust, the income from whieh was to be paVi to his widow and to five brothers and slaters. Ann Morrow, the grandmother of the plaintiff, was one of these sisters. Her on James married in Newark. N. J In 1872 and Samuel Morrow is his son. Shortly after Samuel was born- his father went to Texas. For four years nit wife and other relatives heard from him regularly. Then he ceased to write, and no trace of him has been found since Witb the exception of a letter written by a stranger in lsT7. who said that James Morrow had been killed in a barroom fight at Orange, Texas. Every effort was made to find him. Samuel Morrow now claims one-twentieth of his grandfather's estate, or about $20.-tw. He says that the executors of his grand-uncle have never accounted to him for his share of the property, and he wants the accounting as well as the court's declaration that the presumption la that his father Is dead. Mrs. McMahon and the executors oppose the claim on the grounds that there Is no proof that James Morrow is dead They think that he might turn up at any time and demand his share of the estate..

THE ACTORS' FUND SUED. John R. Rogers Claims $6,500 as 'Hie Share of the Raffle of tha Clave-1 land Gem." . . V : ' John R. Rogers, known-In theatrical circles as the former husband of Minnie Palmer and as " Tours merrily, Rogers,' has sued the Actors' Fund to recover $4,500, which he claims to be due him on a diamond known as the M Cleveland Oem." The action has been begun in the Supreme Court by Leventrltt A Brennan. his counsel. The summons only has been served on the Actors' Fund, but according to Mr. Leventrltt tha facts which will form the basis of the complaint are aa follows: About nine years ago Mr. Rogers owned the diamond. At that time he had it placed with the Bank of the Metropolla, with other security for certain notes. -' The Actors Fund arranged for a fair In Madison Square Garden, and Mr. Rogers proposed that it take up the diamond and raf-fie it off. This proposition was accepted. The Actors' Fund paid 84.000 Into th bank, and the understanding, as Mr. Rogers alleges, was that he was to have one-half the proceeds of the' raffle. He now claims he never received the money, and demands the S3.500. which he assert is his share. Ex-Judge Dlttenhoefer is counsel for the Actors' Fund. He said yesterday that aa yet he had not received the complaint: although the summons had been served a month ago, and, therefore, he could tell little about the action. He suggested, however, that the claim was rather old to sue on now. . 420. STREET LINE'S RECEIVER. Col. Jay Discharged and Property -Restored to Railway Management.

IN THE SHOPiT The many showers of this month have brought forth the " May flowers " on Broadway, and they are selling for 23 cents a bunch. ' i, . - The shops which cajer to the wealthier class of people show frequently the most shabby-looking; customers before their' Counters. To one who did not know it would appear strange. But more and more the modistes are buying the matertata for their patrons, and the poorly clad little girls who Una the counters of the fine shops at this time of the year are the dressmaker's girls filling orders for their employers. - ' 'The dear end sail6r hat, without which the shirtwaist i its friend and companion for many years, has seemed lost is to be seen again. The hats sre to be found In the pUUn. smooth, and rough straws and with black or white bands. In some a broad band of black velvet is wound around the rather high crown, knotted loosely at on side and with ends that fall to the edge of the rim. V The popular harness buckle belttlatp Is taking to itself many ornamentations, and in dull gold would hardly be known by Its poor relative. Eome of the steel buckles have been elongated, which, while they are I-ractlcally of the same style, gives them a more elegant appearance. Buttons are aleo putting on frills, and have little danglers of many kinds, according to the style of the button, banging, tas-rel-fashlon, from Ihem and giving them a dressed-up appearance which makes them very appropriate on elaborate gowns. Some of the smaller cnes- are. particularly attractive on fancy silk waists. , . There are Innumerable buttons used for trimming, particularly the smaller ones. There are any number of the tiny round gilt buttons on some of the waists, and buttons In gilt,, a trifle larger, in flower shapes, are also ured. The small white silk buttons alo figure as a trimming for many walita, and larger ones are also used. Black and white button are used In combination in some instances. For instance, a gown which is trimmed with black has a bright-red vest upon which there are. white buttons, while upon the edges of the material of ' the gown, which open over the vest, there is & row of black silk buttons. - ' V Nun's veiling comes in many shades and with a fancy border in the piece. There is more or less gilt in the border. The material is handsome, and costs $3.00 a yard. Not every one would know It as nun's veiling, for it is of a different weave from much f the ' material known under that name. It is loosely woven, with firm, cord-like thread. . - A handsome and showy parasol has gold thread woven hito the silk in some way so that it has a distinctly golden sheen, which adds to the brilliancy of the pattern. -This Is tn flowers, and shows most of the colors ot the rainbow in large, brilliant blossoms. Some of the handsomest handkerclefs to be bought ready embroidered have the single' iniiinl in script very simple, but ele-gnnt in design, the letter nearly an inch in height and very slender. These handkerchiefs cost $10 a dozen. For women who prefer to have the initials embroidered after their own directions there are handkerchiefs with opened embroidered wreathes in the corners, ready to have the initials put In. The most attractive little sunbonnets for children are of flowered, striped dimity In delicate colors.- The bonnets. are made In the simplest way, with . front perfectly plain. ' gathered crown and short, cape. From these simple bonnets the, children's headgear runs up to the most elaborate hats and bonnets, monuments of . fancy straw, chiffon, and ribbon, which cost more than the proverbial Carter bonnet of Eve's mont extravagant daughters. - Some Of the eimpler of the dress bonnets are inuaint poke shapes and are simply trimmed; . : !- ., ' A shirtwaist which is realty striking Is of white silk, with large gold polka dots woven into the material. The waist is an expensive one.

There are morning and evening services every Sunday, and Thursday evening meetings every -week at the home of the pastor, 603 Third Avenue. The services are all conducted in the Danish language, and It is believed that when the existence of the little congregation becomes generally known It will grow at a rapid rate. .

Mr. Cannon slept considerably yesterday and the tore part of last night A bulletin was Issued about midnight stating that he was resting easy. The change for the ; worse came a few hours later, and he passed quietly away , early, this morning. v .' - ; .-'.(.' ,' . - Mr. Cannon was about seventy-five "years of age. . He was one of the leading men of Utah and of the Mormon Church. The body was taken to San Francisco-during the morning for embalming, aftsr which It will be taken to Salt Lake City. George Q. Cannon! In later yars to he I known asthe "Richelieu of MormonUm," crossea tne plains from Neuvoo, UU in 18 and setUed, in UUb In lS4T.f He had embraced - the Mormon doctrine. Jn 1842, when" be was but fifteen years' old. " He waaborn In Liverpool, England. Jan.' 11. 1827. and came to America In 1S44. Hla parents were related to Apostle Taylor, and . the child was bred In , the faith In which' he was destined to become noted. He went out making converts for Mor-monlsm In California and" Hawaii, while Brigham Young was laying its Xoundatlons in the, deserts along the Great Salt Lake. He was translating the Mormon Blbje into tne Hawaiian language and conducting a Mormon, newspaper in San Francisco in the period when the Church was seeking to spread itself through the books and periodicals of the time. - Finally, when he and tha - Church had - grown strong together, ha came back to Salt Lake City to become the private secretary of Brigham Young. . At the age of thirty Mr. Cannon became an apostle, and Went Into the inner sanctu-r.n- Latter- Day Baints. Not long arter this Mr. Cannon became the target rpr attacks upon Mormonlsm. which con tlnued almost uninterruptedly for two score years. The frensy of public indignation that greeted tha election of Roberts as a tngreseman was feebls when compared to the excitement- which the elevation of Oeorge O. Cannon to public office created throughout the Nation. -.. .. In 1862 Utah sought admittance to the Union as a State. Mr. Cannon and W. H. Hooper were, sent to Washington to convey the petition. But the Federal Government promptly denied the petition on the ground that the people of the Slate were polygamous. f - MrT Cannon was elected to the Legislative Council of Utah in 18cTi, 1861, 18. and the three succeeding vmh.' In 1fcC ha wns elected a Regent of the Deseret University. J ritory of Utah to Congress. His seat was contested on the ground that he was-a polygamist Time and time again this same question was raised for the following ten yeara During the period from 1878 to 1882 the presence of Mr. Cannon In Congress was a constant thorn in the flesh of that body, and aroused storms of protest all over the country. ( In spite ef all warfare upon him. Mr. Cannon remained steadfast to his faith. He withstood a marvelous amount of personal vllllf tcatlon in Congress and the press. He retired from his office in 1882, only when compelled to do se, and-with undaunted reiteration of his belief in- the divinity of the polygamous faith. From 18X2 to 18!) he underwent a series of persecutions, including exile from home and Imprisonment but still refused to acknowl edee that he was obeying ether than t he-voice of God. Tt was only when the supreme law of the land pronounced potyg-.. amy crlmlnat, when further persistence would have shaken the foundations of -the church he loved, that he surrendered, tVhtl T 7 1 V U- a a QilmfHMl Intn tk. TTnlnn Mr. Cannon was one of the prima negotiators. It was a task that required superb diplomacy, but after flv yeara 'of effort Utah became a State. Then It was that the Mormon Church became separate from the State, and Lerenso Snow announced that henceforth there would be no politics In the organisation. At the time he made this announcement he called George Q. Cannon Into his 'councils, retaining him within what in known as the first Presidency of the Church. Mr. cannon naa been a great power In the politics of Utah ever since the State was admitted.- He has been a Republican, tacit'v. at least althouerh he has In many instances allied himself with the- Demo c ratio Party. His politics was determined, rather by-State consideration than National ones. He has been ever since his appointment tn the first Presidency of the Church. He has been a priest all the time he has been a politician and a statesman. He has been the nrinclnal factor ta tnnk. ing Mormonism , a religion, pure anr mm pie. his saaracltv maklna- him reallxe in time that struggle against the civil laws of the ! diplomatic conciliation was the most effec tive poncy. . - A.
