WILL ROMANCE. Why 3irs. Bourne Gave Thorndike $500,000. 1 JFroni the New York World. 1 R.

February appears toj be a very fair prospect for bitter litigation over the Willi of the late Mrs. M. A.xBourne, of! Boston and New.Yorki who a cottage Add who probably entertained, during the season more people of literary distinction than all the other cottagers put together. It will bo remembered by the readers of the World that Mrs. Bourne bequeathed her: young relative, Mr.

Allen Thorndike Rice, thessum of $500,000, beside a one-third interest in the residue of the estate, each-nart of which is; valued at about the- same amount as tiie to the young editor. The circumistanees whieh brought about the bequest-are quite interesting, the following being the main points: Mrs. Bourne was, previous to her marriage with: Mr. Bourne, a wiyew named Thorndike, By ber first husband she had three daughters, two of whom survive her and are-now aoroad, both having married (liens one the Count de Sartiges, formerly French Minister at Washington, and the other M.sde Ban The third dauzhter was the mother of Mr. Allen Thorndike Rice, and dird soon after his birth-.

In course of time Mrs. Thorndike became a widow-, and subsequently marriod Mr, Bourne, a wealthy' bachelor of Boston. To this proposed i union Mrs. Tborndike's two daughters were' violently opposed Their expostulations were, however, in vain. After the mai-riago of their mother to Mr.

Bourse their treatment of that gentleman was anything but of a filial cliaracter. They snubbed him. upon every posibte -occasion, and "it" liecame evident to Mr. Bourne's friends that he was much pained there-aU But the! affection which thev lacked for-- him was1 more than mudeup by ithe devotionof Mr. Allen Thorndike "who treated the old gentleman with inarkexT respect aud disinterested This was not lost upon Mr.

Bourne, wlib in. 'conversation -with bis expressed a determination to do something, for tjrs young friend. He -did not do sd'airectlyj however, but left it for Bourne. At bis death his property at about half a million, was left, to Bourne. That lady desiring to "carry out the washes of her husband, left to young Rice the value of tho estate left her by Mr.

Bourne, and id dividingiher own property gave tp each of ller two surviving daughters one-third, and to Mr. A. Rice she bequeathed the oithershnre, whjeh would havej been bis motherf had sue i i It is therefore apparent that the two surviving daughters have not been dealt with uh-'jiistlv, and; there is good reason for believing that'they fthemselvea are of opinion; bnt the iteHl pinch' comes from the fact that Mrs.i Bourne stipulated in 'her will that her sons-iu-law were not -to have aiiiy band in the management of her estate because she had ha faith in fortiigners. It is generally believed that the great opposition to the will arises from the counsel for the daughters have not received, as yet, poHHye instruntion from them, they being Kurope, -but it Is believed that there wili bo' a bitter contest, the result of which it is iimptissible to -foretell.

Journeymen Brush Wielders Will Demand Jj3 a Day Alter March 1 A Meeting Held Yesterday. Thej journeymen painters of St. Louis met at i-Central TurnhaU yesterday, afternoon. There were about 15U present. The meeting wa9 organized Vy, the ejection of Mr.

Yule as President and Mr. Robinson, Secretary, Mr.j Daniel' O'Connell Tracy was the first speaker. -I He expressed himself in favor of trades unions, butemphutically opposed radicalism. The great misfortune prevailing in traders unions is that they allow personal friendship and the popularity of some possibly itndisoreet member Ito sway them. This ought not to be In appointing the several committees to confer with' the bosses, the! best qualified and the most moderate, men should be selected.

Blackstone, the law i commentator, says law to be a law should be reasonable. This applies in the present instance. The demand made by the assembled painters, that they are to receive t3 day from the 1st of next March, is, he said, mosf reasonable; bnt the men sent to the bosses should be able to argue tlie matter logically and dispassionately. They (the bosses) willagree to their wishes if properly represented, for the employer who can not pay $3 per fliem is not worthy of being a boss. Besides, the increase in tlie price of eatables, clothing, makes the demand a.

matter of necessity. i i The speaker then called attention! to the question of apprentices. No boss employing less than ten men should bo permitted to engage more than one apprentice. In Europe, the I success of trades unions is owing to this very regulation in the number of apprentices and the. number of years they have serve before beinir reeognized as journeymen.

This should be the usago here. It is due to the employer, the Journeyman and the apprentice himself, for under the present manner of con-, ducting affairs, the latter is let loose upon society, unskillful and unable to earn a livelihood. Mr. Tracy proposed that the trades union of painters be made a permanentorganl-zatlon for in union there is strength, in disunion destruction. It is for this reason alone that bricklayers, carpenters and plasterers get better wages.

The chief point, however, is reasonableness, is moderation. In conclusion, he earnestly hoped that their demands would bes acceded to, and that the committee appointed would consist of men of sonnd jndg-munt. A vote of thanks was offered Mr. Tracy. The next speaker, Mr.

Saunders, reiterated what had already been said. Ho read a report ofthe committee of the Painters' Union of Chicago, and the result of their visit to the boss painters of that city. All the employers, except one firm, granted the desires of the peti-tiosners. The gentlemen refusing, Messrs. Per-kias 467 Madison street, stated that they regarded the institution of trades unions as pernicious, as a curse to society, thus insulting, 'Mr.

Saunders, said, 50,000 working men. What had been done in Chicago would be accomplished here, provided the same solid front was presented, i Jloth -speeches were much applauded.

i John Owen Says that Two Third Dis-: i trlet Policemen Knocked 'Him Down with a Club, Searched Him on the Street, and Afterwards Apologized to Him as the "Wrong Man." a respectable looking young man, who lives at 728 South Second street and ist employed by Fairbanks came into the Globe-Democrat office last night and after pointing to a red decoration in the shape of a Japanese fan on the bridge ot his nose, made an explanation of the manner in which tho aesthetic scar was: received. He said he at the Stoye-molders' ball at Armory sifter taking Halljy Saturday night and a glass or two of beer started home, leaving the ball about midnight, and wandering by mistake northward. Wbeit he was finally turned around, with his face set to the south, he was up in the vicinity of Cass avenue and Broadway. He chose Seventh street to walk back upon, and wasgetting along nicely until he reached the north side O' Fallon, when two police officers called to him to halt. He did so almost immediately, when one jpf the officers dealt him a fearful blow over the bridge of the nose with his club, sending ithe yonng man reeling into the mud.

They jpicked hiiu up only to slap and cuff him, saying:" We've been after you a long time, and inow we've got you."

They made a 'thorough search, during which they applied no very choice epithets to him, and finding nothing of value, offered an idiotic apology for having made' a mistake in their maa, and when he lingered to remonstrate wildly told him to move on or they would run him in anyhow. Owens says that iu his opinion the two policemen were drunk. The trouble occurred at the northeast corner of Seventh and O'Faliyn at 1:30 o'clock Sunday morning. i FRANKLIN AVE POCAHOXTAS.

The recent convention of woman suffragists in this city developes the fact that this peculiar fanaticism is accumulating strength very rapidlyj In Nebraska. A year ago sueh a convention! so enthusiastic, and so largely attended by represontative women of the State, would have been impossible here, for the simple reason that it has been less than a year since the Subject first began to be agitated to any greatiex-tent, since which tilue- discussion ot the subject has been continuous and general through-, out tlie State. Just what the wohicu propose to do, in ease they are allowed to vote, it is pretty early yet to detcrtniue; the whole talik rs of reform reform.1 iu politics pnd reform in eveiything else. As jone of the I 'suffragists' said in the hearing of a Globb-Dkmocuat correspondent, 'We'fi make it hot for the whisky-sellers, There seems to be a unity of sentiment on this point amomg the whole outfit, and it is plain also, that the honor iuen of tlie State and their friends have no sympathy with the movement.

Washington, D. C. February 12. For some time past there has been a feud In the New York Avenue Presbyterian Church in this city; growing out of an offer made to the pastor, Ilev. John R.

Paxton, by a New Tork cpngre -gation. The flock over which Dr. Paxton has hitherto presided was composed ot Judges of the "Supreme! Court, members of Congress, army and navy officials and others prominent in society The New York congregation made an offer of $12,000 per year to the Doctor, which, after consideration was promptly accepted. It became known to his present congregation that he had taken this action, and a meeting was called for the purpose of inducing him to reconsider Jiis ac tion.

This did not scare the Doctor, for he had served his country asasoldierjduring the late war; and when it was over helturnei bis attention to thoology anil made rapid progress in his profession and soon became one of the most popular pulpit-orators in this country. Ho was brought to Washington, and i by his eloquence rapidly built rip a most nourishing congregation But he was not content to work for glory when a larger salary was Offered; and, although much attached to his new charge, he told them that his decision was final and that they must look! out for a now and cheuper "minister. Matters reached a climax to-day, when Dr. Paxton, after giving oufhis text, preached what hejcalled his farewell sermon.

Although somewhat surprised, theelders made up their minds to submit gracefully, and accordingly when he had concluded, a congregational meeting was organized, which soon resolved itself into a veritable love-feast. The threat of reporting the minister to the Presbytery was reconsidered, and the fathers of the church, reluctantly, but pleasantly wished their pastor ''God speed" in i his field Of labor. Their example wae contagious, and in a few minutes the usual humdrum of. a Sunday service was turned into a brilliant reception, of which Dr. Paxton was the eentral attraction.

Several prominent lawyers ot Milwaukee are here and have been! retained in a suit "that will be instituted within a -fojw days. 16 seems that a mun living in this county had effected the ruin of a young girl, scareely niore' than 14 years of age, married her against thcE wishes of mother, and, after lier death 1 a few months ater, had made bring suit to gain ah estate left her by hes brother. The interested parties i live near Dela-fietld, a township about eight miles sonth-wist of Niishootooh a station on the St. Paul rojad. Old Billy Hughes, the father of the girl, ws killed by a ilunawsvy team.

Some time before his death, Wm.illughes' had made a will leaving his "valuable: estate to bis wife for her life tiinej and after her death to his two youngest! Willie and Ferry the former a boy and the latter a while the four cider children were left legacies ranging from $200 to fSO0 Three years ago a young man, David Evans, was engaired as a tarm-hand at the Hughes place, and in a short time worked himself iuto the good graces and theconfidence of the smalt family, so much so that he came into possession of all the family secrets and consequently learned of the good fortune ii store for Perry. The latter, an unsophisticated girl as It op-pears from all accounts, Listened only too read-ilv to hjs whisperings of ilove, nntil it became apparent that when yet a child she was soon to become a mother! When this was discovered, abont a year ago. Perry was then little over 14 years ot age. Cousternaiioni prevailed in tlie Hughes family; and when tlie painful fact leaked out there was great indignation among the neighbors. iEvans tried to repair his frightful wrong, or, as it now appears, his design inar action by marrying the girl betrayed in May of lust vear.

Id August last tho child-wife and mother died In confinement, and week later the child died, liotn ot the ctiiiaien, the guiity and the innocent; were buried in the same graVe.j Evansi left; the place, but has sent word to the Hughes family that he had instituted proceedings to recover his wife's estate, but lie would agree to'a settlement if a handsome sum was paid. This proceeding has caused considerable of a sensation, as there is La bitter feeling; against Evans in the commun ity. There are several interesting law points involved in tne suit, wnicn win do instituted in the Probato Court of -Waukesha. The first is, whether the Perry Hughes and David Evans was valid. The ceremony was performed by Old -'Squire James Rice, living near the Hughes place.

The term of the 'Squire as Justice of the Pence of the town of Delalield had eocpircd at the time, but his successor had failed to qualify And Rice was subsequently reappointed. In the intervening time the marriage ceremony was performed by and it is a Question whether it will hold under the law.f Another question is whether Evans may not; be held tor seduction, and nnally whet Iter the estate of Perry does not revert to the mother, the legatee having died a minor, and the last and most important point is that the girl was not fifteen yeiirs of age, and could not Jbe married without Wer parents consent under the provision of the revised statutes. Whatever the outcome of this suit may be so much can be said that the sympathy ot the community is certainly not on the sine of Evans. The estate that was left the unfortunate girl is worth from to $10,000. Evans claims that as tjie child lived a week he is entitled to the There is a difference of opinion among "a number of lawyers who were consulted on the subject, i Father Betts Catholic Supporters.

Yesterday and fluring the last week several Land presumably Catholics, were exerting themselves to sell tickets for the entertainment 'to' be given on the 20th for the benefit of Trinity Church, bf which Rev.
