Mr. Wheat's Bon had asked him if wanted to make a few dollars by being sworn In as a messenger in the House post-office to serve for a few days until a man from Dakota could arrive to take his placo. The vacancy was caused by tho dis- charge of an employe named Denny. Young Wheat agreed to give him 85 for serving for the few days, fle served for three weeks and drew 86T, which he turned over to young Wheat with the exception of 85. Wheat had secured him an Indorsement on an application for a Government position as a further re- ward for his services. Walter Wheat came to him again and asked him to represent a man named Frank Hall in tho post- office and he had agreed to do so. He drew for representing Hall. He asked Walter "Wheat to divide the money, but he refused to do so and in the presence of Postmaster Wheat they compromised on 810. The postmaster Said something about having Mr. Cas- well withdraw bis indorsement if he in- sisted on having the money divided. The witness had been discharged from tho post-office, the reason given being that tho propriety of having a substi- tute in the otoce had been questioned. W. D.

Sept. features >f the proceed ngs of the prison con- gress yesterday were the addresses of Warden Brush, of Sinir Sing, and Com- missioner Harris. The latter had in- vestigated the causes of the now well recognized fact that crime increases with education, and his conclusion was that arrests for intemperance, brought ibout by the zeal of tho Prohibitionists, had swelled the total of offunses. Warden Brush said that a largo share of the men and boys who are incarcer- ated in our prisons and penitentiaries are there because they had no proper discipline in the family and were al- lowed by over-indulgence to play tru- ant, instead of attending school, and therefore received no school discipline. "When I have been askod what are the cause's that send most of our men to prison I have of late years invariably answered: 'Tne want of family disci- pline.' _______________ Murdered In Strewt Urawl.

Franklin bad in viow tho accumula- tion of a Itrgo fund for tho purpose specified in his will at tho expiration of the period of the remainder to be reinvested for another 100 years, the same provisions applying to Boston and Philadelphia. The first period of 100 years elapsed, the city of Boston has swollen the nucleus of tho bequest to about but the Phil- adelphia fund has only reached S100.000. The objfci of tho suit is to compel the distribution of this fund to the heirs of Franklin, descended tnrougli his only daughter, Sarah Franklin "Rscho. It is estimated that there are over fifty of thoso heirs in this city and vicinity. The contest Is based on several grounds, is known as the rule of perpetuities In common law. The law does not provide for the vesting of a legacy beyond the period of twenty- one years aflor the lifetime of the lega- tee, crcopt funds devoted to charity, ft is distinctly claimed that Franklin's plan did not contemplate charity, from tho fact tnat interest was charged on tho loans. The suit Is to be decided in this city before steps taken to se- cure tho fund hold in Boston, but notice has been served upon the trustees of the Boston fund to prevent any disburse- ment of it pending litigation.
