At oue of the regular meetings of the above m e n t i o n e d l i t e r a r y society held at this place in December, it was suggested t h a t the books, used by the c l u b or society this w i n t e r , form the nucleus of a town library, and also the hope was expressed l h a t "WB m i g h t live to see a b e a u t i f u l building erected w i t h i n the limits of our town, k n o w n as 'Preston Library, 1 which could but serve as a noble m o n u m e n t to the foresight and i n t e l - ligence of the citi/.ens of Preston."

Douglass, and ready at any time, it is understood, to bo applied to the purpose for w h i c h it was originally intended.

W i l l i a m ·!· -VmliTsoii AhU- tlu-Caiirl l] Corrcol 1111 I n j i i M t l r c . A r g u m e n t in the locally celebrated case of Anderson vs. Anderson was coucluded Wednesday and decision of the c o u r t held u n d e r a d v i s e m e n t . The testimony presented showed the following facts: There died in 1SSL in Queen Antic's c o u n t y a Mr. Wm. J. Anderson, a t h r i f t y f a r m e r , h a v - ing several children and an estate valued at about $15,000. Tlie correct n a m e of the eldest of these children was Wm. G. A n d e r s o n , but he was as frequently addressed by his father's n a m e , Wm. J., as by t h e one which rightly belonged to him.. The hither some few years piior to his death purchased a farm n e a r Itigleside aud stated to hib f r i e n d s that he intended the laud for Billy, referring to his son, and also t e l l i n g the y o u n g man that he w o u l d leave papers to i n d i c a t e his i n t e n t i o n s . After the elder Anderson's d e a t h tlio reading ot the w i l l disclosed the fact that the entire estate had been devised to Hie younger c h i l d r e n , and explained t h a t the n a m e of the oldest had been o m i t t e d because he had been previously provided for. As his f a t h e r had advanced him personal property to tho v a l u e of about $600, Wm. G. Anderson abided by the will, but was, o f c o u i s e , discontented, and surrendered the farm w h i c h he had supposed was in the estate and sold for equal d i v i s i o n among the heirs, he receiving n o t h - ing. The impression that some mistake had been made remained in his thoughts, and as years passed by the frequent reiteration by friends of himself and father that the farm at Ingleside was intended under t h e will to be his provision induced him to consult a lawyer about the matter. Ho was advised t h a t n o t h i n g could be done u n t i l the youngest heir became ot age. W h e n this occurred, in 1895, he secured Messrs. P. B. Hopper and Joliu B. Brown to investigate tlie case, and d u r i n g the progress of taking tho testimony before the examiner in chancery ex- Judge Geo. M. Russum testified that lie liad d r a w n the deed for the f a r m in dispute and t h a t Mr. Anderson had stated that he wanted the .con- veyauco made in the n a m e of his son. On being asked his son's name lie replied, " W i l l i a m J. Anderson," falling into w h a t was a p o p u l a r error. A peculiar eorroboration of the mistake occursin the w i l l , d r a w n by a different attorney, where the eldest son's name is again given as Wm. J., instead of Win. G. - T h e deed and will were made about tho same time. Tlie son now petitions the court to correct the alleged in- j u s t i c e and error and a l l o w him whatever a m o u n t would have been his just and equal share of the pro perty under the conditions of the will. Messrs. Ban-oil aud Gorier, counsel for the d e f e n d a n t s , claim that the advanced personal property was regarded by tho father as sufficient provision for the eldest son, and that it is to t h i s that the w i l l refers. They also claim t h a t Wm. G. Anderson has slept upon his rights for so long a t i m e that ho is not entitled to recover, and it is t h i s l a t t e r point of laches upon which the most stress is laid, though the plaintil! controverts it upon tho plea of insufficient knowledge and advice regarding tho law. The _ s u b t l e t y of legal points involved and and the rarity of the occurrence of such caseshavecaused a p e c u l i a r c e l e b r i t y to be attached to this a r g u m e n t , and. the decision of the court will be received w i t h u n u s u a l interest.

WON THEFIGHTJWlJUDGEIVrCOMAS. The Sixth District Combine I'rovcd Too Stnmj; :i Itody. Judge Louis E. McComas was on Tuesday elected United States senator from Maryland to succeed Senator A r t h u r Pue Gorman. He will take his seat on the 4th of March, 1899. The election was brought about on the t e n t h ballot, after one of the hottest lights in auy legisla- ive assembly--a fight iu which a good stand was made in the interest of Baltimore against the dc-tcrmiua- ion of the Sixth district combine to ake everything in sight. But the combine was too strong. It brought o its aid the party lash, through he medium of the caucus, and did lot hesitate to declare t h a t its caiuli- late had tho s u p p o r t ot the admin- stratiou at Washington. The last Ballot, which ended in the election f Judge McComas, wasaccompanied y a number of speeches, among hem one by the president of the Senate, which was a severe and veu bitter arraignment of Senator jormau. A number of Senator jtorman's admirers came to his de- ense, and answered the charges nade by Senator Randall. Other peeches were made, giving the tiembers a chance to explain their r otes, and to tell why they had de- ided that the time had come to end he battle. The election of Judge McComas was really in sight at eight o'clock ast uight, when Senator Dodson \nd Delegate Hall, of Tablot coun- y, appeared in the chamber of the louse of Delegates, where the Re- ublicau caucus was to be held. It vas then realized that Congressman Barber's efforts to prevent any con- uuimation of the threat to'hold up Jr. Parlett's confirmation as col- ector ol internal revenue had somo veight with these gentlemen, aside roui their n a t u r a l disinclination to jo contrary to the majority wish if their party as expressed by the caucus. It was also realized that as hey went so would go the entire Eastern Shore Republican continent, except Senator W,estcott, of ieut c o u n t y , who maintained and still maintains, that Baltimore city was entitled to the senatorship as a small return for the commercial mportance she has achieved among the cities of the world, and for the splendid victories she has so lavish- y bestowed upon the party in the state. This morning, after the city's protectors had awakened from their slumbers of despondency, and the , Sixth district combine's leaders had awakened from their dreams of a triumph near at hand, the situation cor the city man was as gloomy as the weather without, while the spirits of the Sixth district combine danced in harmony with the rays which glinted from the hundreds o f . electric lights iu the Stte House. Still, with all the surprising developments of last night, with Judee McComas the nominee of a caucus in which fifty-three of the sixty-seven Republicans had participated, with three more ready to register their acquiescence in its dictates, the result was somewhat iu doubt. There were more inquiries as to the attitude of the city's delegates, and shortly before noon they gathered in the speaker's room for the last time notas the "faithful eleven,"forMr. Gosnell had gone into the caucus last night. After thoroughly canvassing the situation, they decided that each man should vote accordingtohis own convictions.- This meant that the · men who had so faithfully stood up aud fought for thecity's interests and the city's protection could no longer contend against the tremendous odds and immense forces which the Sixth district combine had marshaled against them. No set of mou however compactly united and however strougly bound by a common purpose, could have longer resisted the combine's onslaught. And all did not yield, even though overcome, and should be awarded tho palm for firmness and faithfulness. Ou the ballot Messrs. Jacobi, Quart, Baldwin, Short aud De Lacouv voted for Major Shaw. Mr. Jacobi changed to Judge McComas. The others refused to yield. Those of the "faithful ten" who voted as their names were called for Judge McComas were Messrs. Leuderking, Robinson, James, Turner aud Speaker Shaefer. No one made a motion, as is customary, to make the election unanimous, as it was known that this could not be done.
