Relatives of Man Who Left
Property Worth $90,000,000
Will Fight for Shares.
Lod Angeles, .May US.���In an eitevt
to obtain a share ot a $90,000,000
eslate, declared to be awaiting claimants at. Wilmington, Del., Charles ...
Tufford, ofc this city, is organizing the
heirs of Christopher Springer, _-,io
died at Wilmington in 17S0, into a
society.
Tho property, said to comprise a
large part o�� the city of Wilmington,
ss well as considerable farming laudt-
in both Deleware and Pennsylvania
was left by Springer, who died wi'il)-
out issue. An only brother, John, having espoused the cause of the colonies
during the revolution, Christopher, a
staunch Tory, tied up his estate that
it might not fall into his ielatwe'5
hands. He did this by giving a ninety-
nine year lease to tlie Swedish church
of Wilmington. The loase expired in
1SS0, and since then the title to il_t
land lias been in abeyance.
As fur as ciin be learned, between
fifty and 100 have claims, but many
io_... upon ihe tale of the "estate as
merely a family tradition.
However,    the   eastern   heirs have
formed a corporation to taka steps to
ecover the property and are seeking
to include the local relatives.
It ts no! unlikely that they will join
i iic corporation formed for the purpose of prosecuting the case.
Two of the local heirs will be delegated to go tai Wilmington to repre-
|uenl   tiie westerners.   They will take
.ui attorney with them and will carry
tii-.' matter into the courts.
As far as known the western heirs
are: Mrs. Eliza E. Springer Tufford,
Charles D. Tufford, V.". G. Lockwooa
and H. C. Lockwood, all of this city;
ii. A. Lockwood, of Hollywood; Mrs.
Hume Flood, of Pomona; G. F. Locii-
���vcod, Ontario; Mrs. Richard Brown,
of San Francisco; Or. M. M. I_��ck-
wood, of Colusa; Mrs. A. McUean and

Imillion more live in other prohibition

i the total population   oi   the   United

f.'iir legislatures in session last year,
1 twenty passed laws unfavorable to the
liquor traffic, while no legislature has
jleen in session tlie present year that.
; has not had one or more temperance
I bills before  it.    In  recent  .'.ears,    no
legislation   favorable   to   the   liquor

possibly more is the result of the
bieaking away of a dam tu Current

Almost Immediately after the acci-
tent a C. P. R. freight train came
along from the vast aud crashed over
t.ie wrecked bridge into the river with
eight or ten cars on top of the loco-
a.otive. The fireman, engineer and
brakeman went down and were killed
