Bob- If you want tho dotallsol amoststartlins romiinco, with one end in Monttina and the other right hero in Massachusetts, you would do well to board tho 2.iC Westom train at tho Albany depot today," said a loadinir Boston real estate man to the wi'itor; and giviiisr a minute description of the person to bo sought, the business man nddod: "From what I know of tho case I believe that whatever he says will be authoritative." In tho private compartment of a palace oar, with his wife and two pretty children, Jo.?oph A. Coram of Lowell was found coni-fortably stowed away. Mr. Coram is a man of the highest business and social standing in this city and Lowell, an extonsive mine owner and capitalist, whoso namo is aa familiar on Stato St. a.1 that of any other Boston man. "yes," ho said, in answer to tho first question of the writer. "I am now starting for tho ", partly ou private husinoss and largely because of my personal interest in tho settlement of tbo estate of Andrew .1. Davis, late of Butte, Mont. A matter of perhap.s ?S,000,000 is involved, and Dome 2C of tho leading lawyers of the country, including ex-Gov. Hobiiisoii' of Massa-cliusotts. Judge Walls of .Springfield, Mass.; Nathaniel Myers of Now York, one of tho ablest lawyers in the coimtry. nearly all the loading coimsol of Butte, and others too niimerous to remember have been engaged on our side alone. It is likely to turn out to be one of the most remarkable will cases over known in the United States." The trtiin was about to start. Thero was no other way of notion, however, but to stay aboard and await the finish of tho story, which is given below; if not told in the graphic words of the narrator, at least it is repeated accurately. Andrew J, Dii,vi8 wtia born in Homers, Goim, a small town near tho Ma.ssao(iiisottfl line. III 1822. Graduating from PhilliPB Aadover Academy, ho onterod a dry goods house in Boston us a chirk, whom ho re-mitined several years, when he went West, to a small town in Vim Buron county, la. There he engagod in bu8ineaa� and after a long Bttiy there he started v/itb one or more mule teams for Montana with provisions. .Sleeping by the roadside, fighting Indiaus and enduring all tho privations incident to fiontior life in tho West at that time, at length he reaohed Butte, Mont. He struck the town just at the right time for his purpose. Every nccessiirj' ol life was at ail oxorliitantly iiigh promiuiii, and Andrew Davis' load sold at a jirolit tliut made him a couiparativcly i-ich miui. Fur in.stauoe, for whiskey, tlieii tho indi.s-pensable and about tho only "medicine" m hot demtind, ho charged $1 a pint, aud tlie rest of his stores ho sold in proportion. Ho cleaved several thouaaiid dollars from liis venture, and tlieticel'orth mndo liimself independently woaltliy. He becnmo the cliiei: owntir in two national hanks, one of which, tbo First National of Butte, it is said, is rated third among all in the country. He owned IC mines, and, in a word, hild a hand in nearly all the loading enterprises of the tei'ritory. Andrew .T. Dttvis never married, although a lew romantic episodes of his life wotild seem to indicato that he lived a bachelor from cljoieo. Ho was rathor a habitual saver than a miser. An incident illustra, tivo of his economical custom took place in Boston not look before his death. He was hero on a visit and stayed at young's. An intimate friend callingupoii him foundhim sui'onoly ensconced in a littlo stuffy, dolliii'-a-day room over tho kitclion, whore tho odors of cooking and the climgiiig of dishes u.ssailed his nose anti esivs continually. Tlio friend went down to tho room clerk. "That man is worth his millions," lie explained, "and he doesn't want any such room as that. Assign one of the best suites you have in tho liouse and send a porter up to take his baggiige thero." That WIV3 done: and the old man was slm-l)ly delighted with tho change and paid his 20 a diiy witliout a murmur. The fact was, it had never oven occuiTod to him to provide (or himself such conifortablo quar-. ters, altliough at that moment ho had on deposit and subject to cheek, money enough to hay tho irliolo house t\vu'c over. Neither was he "close-listed," in the ordinary sense of tho term. Ho disliked to be known as a bestowor of charity, but it is related of him that many a tiino in Butte hits he handed .J>2t), ,$K0 or more to a conlidenlial friend with the I'eiiuei't it be given to some poor family of whoso destitution he hail learjicd in his rambles abcmfc town-"but not as coming from jne, you uiidcr3t;iud." On<:e, during tho great "Montana hliz-zavd," m-hicli destroyed so many cattle and tlirenttinod to baiiltrupt the niujorily ol tlie farmers ol tho Stato, Mr. Davis lieai-d that one of his friends was one of the greatest suffetors througli tho calamity. Ho at om-o itrote a letter to his friend oilering, almost forcing upon him a loan of S10l),000, "to be paid when you got ready," until he could sgiiare himself with circumstances. By llie conimunity at large Andrew J. JJavis wss recognized as a man of sound ideas upon nmt!t,'rs of iinajice and of the most hoiiorabJe business firineiplcs. Than his, no signature upon important business documents was better known in Montana, and his word was a,s good as his bond, if ho but gave his promise to become party to a commercial enterprise, he would ncvor �withdraw, let the outcome be whi)t it would. A word from him, whose business sagacity was of the highest order, whoso precision in business matters was remaik- thero paid. From -whSch and other facts the ImprovidoDoe of tlio applicant and his con-sociuont unfitness for the position were alleged. In evidence, also, it appeared that John A. dtiring his rosidonoe in Butte had been an habitual bard drinker, and at times was drunk. The charge, "want of integrity," wai sup-portod by evidonoo tending to show that ,John A. had perjured himself on tho witness stand to escape jury duty. In this connection, also, tho following excerpt from tho brief prosontod lioforo tho iSimromo Court by Nathaniol Myers, counsel for the appellant. Boot, Is interesting: Shortly Ueforo Andrew .T. Ilavls* death ho ex-prcflsod n ivlsh to aco Jila favorito iiiooo, Mra. KUon Cornuo, then II Ping ntiar Now York city, and she was accordingly telegraphed for tuid at once tveiit to Montana and assioted in nursing her uncle. . . Ab a girl Mrs. Corniio Uyod for n timo at hei; uncle John's honse In Illinois, her tuition being paid hy hor Undo Andrew, who ovontunlly alao paid tor her board at tho aemlnary. She In now a woman over-18 years old,and has boon intimate with hor nnclea from her earliest Infancy. A fow days heforo Andrew died Dr. Hough told Mrs. Cornuo thnt Andrew could not possibly survive hut a day or two; therefore she rcmnrltod to her Uncle John: "�\Vhat a Burprlfio It ^vlll bo to tboRC aunts dotvn Eaat when they, realize how much money they t\-ill havol" Thla she aald on tho natural nsinmptlon that, of courae, they would receive their proper shares, atid wlUioitt hindrance. John, on the other hand, an-Bitming that they would not receive their proper Bhaics, romiirked . to her: "It tiieir nieces and nephowe do not pnt nnytliliig Into tholr heads (hoy will bo satlsflod with a very little. Diana nhonid havo the plaoo where she Is living; we wlU give It to her and a few hundred dollars to live on, and she wLU be al! right." "Tlie place referred to Is worth about gttOOO, and Diana's share Is ono-olevontli of at least ^5,000,000. Mrs. Coriuie adds; "I Bold to him, "You may not fltid thoin such foola as you think they are,' and he said, 'Well, if they do too much talking I will go In Willi Jeff and take every dollar.'" She then said: "That may not be so vory easy a. tiling to doand ho replied, "1 can go Into Iowa and prove anything, and It woti't take vory mtioh money � to <to It olthot." She says, "He was very Berlona when he said this." Thereupon Bhe remarked that she did not want to hear anything mora about tliat He had apoken to hor of tho Iowa boy Uotora that time. It is trtie that tlila oonvarsatioa Is denied by tho applicant John A. Davis, but when we come to consider his tcatlmony in that regard wo ehiUl find that he has made this bad matter inflnitoly worso than if he had remained silent about it. Tiiis "Joff,"orThonmsJeff6rsonDavi,s,was reputed to bo an illogitmato son of Andrew J., and a resident of Iowa. Andrew, however, always denied being his father; once oven disclaiming him under oath. Even admitting, however-for the fn.ct is not material just now-that "Jeff" were tho illegitimate sou of Andrew, ho could under no law of Montaaia lay claim to any pa.rt of Andrew's estate. Now comes upon, the scene Erwin Davis, brother of Andrew J., a wealthy Wall st. capitalist-"tho power behind the throne" Mr. Myers stylos liim-who was one of the two chief ac,tors in adramatio scene at the Massasoit House, Springfield, on tho vory day of Andrew J.'s funeral. The remains were buried in Somors, Conn.,' tind In tho evening a group of tho nearest rolallvos of tho deoeasOd assembled in the parlor of the hotel. La^^Tor Myers' stoiy of what took place there, as compiled from the evidence, is as follows: Erwin began by telling tho assembled heirs that, having paid the last tribute of respect to their brother Andrew, It was now noeessiuy to consider what sbotild be done with regard to his estate, i/ tlierewas any estate; that It was to he hoped there wastt T^III; that tho worst possiblo compIioHtion would ensne it there was no \vlll, but that, will or no will, the Indigent members of the family would have lobe cared lor; that It there was a \vlll the estate might possibly bo eettled ftocordlng Root said there was no occaBion to do bo: that powers of attorney were utilized among living people, but that tho law provided for tho distribution of the csttto of a deceased person, nnd that the writer'n memory is at fault, that tbo signa-tm'os of James and Job Davis, who are dead, nro Ti'ritton with tho same ink as the will itself, while that with ^vlilch Sconce wrote his favdr, or in Erwin's, or in favor of any one until they had first Boon tho best lawyer, or judge, in tlio plaoOB where they lived, imd thatthoy should follow the ad%'lco of auoh la^NTer In all tldngs. 'festimony was also introdticed to show that �� � - ^--^^ urged Diana, those signatures were written was not man. ufactm'od in 1806. , , , - , , Then the laivyers look up Sconce and find him down in Arkansas, 40 milttB from a railroad.

Mr. Bruce is naturally vory proud of his accomplished -svife, and they are naturally devoted to their only child, a bright boy ol 12, who bears the distinguished namo ol Roscoe Conkling, and who displays with pride a silver cup, knlle, fork and spoon given to him by the late senator from Now York, who was so kind a Iriend to bis father. Mr. Bruce likes to tell how he became acquainted with Senator Conkling. It was when the colored man came to take his seat In the United States Senate. It is tho custom for the colleague of a ne-w senator to escort him to tho Tico-president'a desk to bo BH'orn In, but when Senator Bruce, with tho extriioritinary embarrassment of his position, camo to this dut.y ho found ho would lilive to go through tho ordeal alone. I All the other new senators were escorted, Irut ho had to walk by himself down the ijlsle. AVhen he had taken the oath aud was about to turn back to his seat he felt a hand laid gently on his arm. A tall, proud-look ng man whom he had never seen before stood beside him, offering his arm. Senator Bruce accepted the courtesy with pro-foimd gratitude, and. arm-in-arm with Senator Conkling, walked up the aisle. Prol. John M. Langston, ox-United States minister to Liberia, is one of the most brilliant men in Washington.
