STEWARTS WILL The Turneys' Relationship Denied by Judge Hilton. PROBATE LAW DEFINED. Why Surrogate Calvin Did Not Issue Citations Before Probate. Now that the Turneys have made public their rea sons lor contcstiug tho wU ol tho lute Mr. A. T. Stew art the people are exceedingly anxious to learn bow the document which was (lied on Wednesday is re tarded by those who are at present enjoying tlie man igrmeni of the estate. With .the object of ascertain ing this a Hlrai.u reporter called upon Ju>lgo Hilton yesterday, but VU lolormed by that gentleman that he bad nothing w hatcver to my. From his manner of sjtcaking it is probable that the Judge's policy in fu ture Hill bo silence, lie did uot wi.-h to suy anything, because ho has a.ready in more instances than one, given expression to hi*v>piuion of tho coming suit < x clusiveiy and elaborately in these columns. He has denied t o relationship which the Turneys claim, and has frequently stated thai tliero was no ground what tver for logal procedure against tho wi!L Ho has also ihown how even the tact 01 relationship was insutll Bient, and has most emphatically asserted that no un due inllucuco was exerted over the deceased. ALGERXOX st'LMVAX OX I'ROHATK LAW. With a view to ascertaining ttie law as regards the petition which tho Bailey and Turney lamiiies make to Mr. Stewart's will a Ukkald reporter yester day colled upon the Hon. Algernou S. Sull'van, at his office in the Drexel Building, and asked hiin in ease a will was admitted to probate without citations having been issued to nil heirs or next of kin to the .'creased would a subsequent sule o< the property ol the csiHto by the legatee be lega* 1 Mr. Si- i.i.ivan?Your quest ion involves two subjects:? 1. Should tho heirs an I next ol km of the ullegrd tes tator he ciltd to attend tlx proceedings on probate Y 2. Whut effect would tho failure to issue proper cita tions have upon the title ol a purchaser supposed to act in gno.| laitn and lor value, alter a formal decree admitting a will to probate? The Statutes, to which I turn, so as to answer you literally, provide as fol lows:? Tho executor, devisee or iogateo named In any last will, or any person interested III an estate may have such will proved liel'ire tin- proper Surrogate. On app.(cation to the hurr gate lie shall ascertain by satisfactory evidence the loll?win?' loots1. If the will relate exclusively to real es tate, ti e name* and pieces of residence ol the hetrn of the testator, or th 11 upon d liuent inquiry the same cannot l>e ascertained. 2. It lh? will relate exclusively to personal ?state, the names and place* ol residence ot the widow and rest ol kin ol the te?tnt' r. or that upon dllijsent inquiry the lame cannot he ascertained. 3. If the will relate to i>oth real an t personal estate, thu names and places of residence of the hein, the widow aud next of ktn of the testator, i.r thai upon diligent inquiry the sums cannot He ascertained. The Surrouate shall thereupon issue a citation requiring the proper persons at such time and place as shall be therein mentioned to appear and at tend th<- puUate of the will. The citation shall state who has applied tor the proof of the will. and. whether it rela es exclusively to ettli.-r real or personal estate, or to both; it shall be d reeled to tho proper persons by name, stating their places of residence. If the name or place o| residence of any person who ought t > he cited cannot be a-eertaiued, such fact shall be stated ii. tbe cltati n. The citation shall be served on the persons to whom It is directed, il thev reside iu the county, by deliver lug a copy at least eight days before tho day appointed, if in another county iu tho State, tiliccn davs before the day appointed; on tucb persons as rosiuo out of the estate publication (or tlx woeks and personal pcrvlco or by mail if residence be ascertained. Belore proceeding to take tho proof ol any will the hur-ogato snail require satisfactory proof by Ull.iavtt of iho service ol the citation in the mode prescribed by law. lhi* citation cannot be dUpeused with except where a will is propounds'! by iho only puriy who is entitled to oppi so it. For example the only iioir at Itiw or next ol kin ot the deceased, or where all. tbe parlies | in interest unite in the petition or appear 'and waive I scrv ce ol citation. But i| there be miants Interested a guardian a t litem is required and uotice to the minor 1 by cituti'ju. The law, as you see, is very explicit. But suppose that the cilali'ousshun noi have been duly issuod and served, yent tho will b" admitted to probale it will be conclusive ovldeuce of ihu validity ol iho will until such proi ate bo rcverned on appeal or revoked by tho Sur rogate or tho will bo declared void by a competent tribunal. Any ol tho next ol kin may at any time within one year after such probate contest iho probate or the validity of the will. "It proper .-illegalions in writing against the will, or against tbe competency of the pr>>o! thereof" be pre tented, the Surrogate mu-t issue new citations to tlie executors who bare undertaken the execution ol tbe artII and to the legatees to show causo why tho pre Bate ftiinu u not no rcvDici a. After tin- service o. tin? citation tbo exoctilor must suspend nil proceedings in relntion to the potato, ex cept the collection mid recovery of money* aud the puymeui oldeots, until adccidon is had on iho allega tion* The prool ot the alleged will niu*t be made anew, tho formei proceedings being regarded ns a mere nullity. Tho burden ol proof is on pro|>oi)eni!< of the wllL Tbe Surrogate may aunnl or ri vuko the lortuer probate. The statute provides, however, that tho executor shall not bo Itablo for any act done in goo i faith pre vious to the service ot the citation at tho Instance til tbe contestant*. So, in my opinion, a bund fide purchaser (roin the executor. pii?r to the date of the Citation ill the contesting proceedings, would be secure in his purr-nase. Had laitb. wilml neglect'or any traceable collusion on the part of any purchaser would, In cace the executor had boon guilty of had faith in procuring probatu of the will, make hi* purchase one of doubtful validity. 1 have not time to examine or consider now whether the otllrial action by a surrogate iu probating a will, when taken outside the Surnftrate's court room, would be invalid on that account, ordinarily ihe business of the surrotato is transacts! in th<i court/oom provided bylaw; indeed,! ncv knew an im-tancc otherwise. The statutes are suw. ni- it as follows:?Tho Surro gate must "tio? 1 i er.ur; w r .i tbe iim'ts of the connty for which bo was appointed" (or elected).

That means tho office provided by the Board of Supervisors of the county. 'I he case then narrows itself to thisWhere connty lodge* ac. as surrogates tho statute expressly author ises them to perform tneir official duties elsewhere than in their office, provided it be in the couuiy. In other counties, where there is a surrogate, tbe statute is *il< nt so tnr as to uio provision lor official action out side tbe Surrogate's office. WUAT St'RHOGATF. CALVIX 8A1K.

Very many people who are familiar with eques trianism ana Its sttenlant fatigue #hen prolonged to any ureal length ol time and when kept up at ?o rapid a puce as la necessary to accomplish 305 miles In M toei) hour*, questioned Ihe propriety of the managers ol this race in electing Parker to attempt lUe teat alter his previous failure. Tliey would much ralher have seen feral to. the Mexican, undertake the lark, lor he 15 nincu I Rhter than l'arker and can endure more latlgue than the young California. The managers, however, insisted on allowing Parker to ride. TIIIE START. Promptly at tour o'clock yesterday morning, long before the buu had shown himself above the oasieru hills bordering the track, and while yet the dew glir.ened upon the crcen fiold.? and verdant shade trees round at out, Parker mounted his horse?a trim, closely-bnllt sorrel?and dashed away arouud the trark, riding to the westward At this time tuerc were not more than Ufty people present, nearly alt ol whom were representative* ol ihe metropolitan prjss or wire in one wav or another I ersoaally interested In the race. Parker, who had been lor the last two weeks under the caro ol a physician, rodo with room ease and freedom than before, and, to quote his owu words, telt everv confident in his ability to accomplish the hercu lean task before him. Just 2m. 26?4's. elapsed from the starting of tho rider until lie passed under tho wire at the end of his first mile. He rodo the same borso twice around and accomplished tho second mile in 2:-i ! This paco was kept up, or at least nearly so, for the j first ten miles, which wore made in 24m. 54s., without anything worthy of note tranHp.rinii. Indeed ' the monotony ol Hie rare was wholly ,ln',lok '',ln l' ! ti e soventoouth mile was being ridden, and thin an accident, which was near lermu.uiins the raco oc^ I currect Parker hod mounted u.

To accomplish this distance Parker clisnged horsea thirty tiiuos. He par took of no refreshment whatever, sn\o a I etas-! of water, and this fact occasioned considerable unfavorable comment, as many (landing i bv remarked lhat "Too much water spoiled him.the first lime."

He had be. n wearing oyeglasses since tho 130th mile, and those who wilneased his first trial lelt con I tldeut lhat ere many more miles were ridden the rdurky Cjliforuian would bo compelled to succumb. Nor were ihov wrong. Tor on completing the 20 th mile ihe rider staggered to the stand and remained there twenty minutes.

A proposition to add lour more marksmen to the list of those who are to contend again for the honor o( a placo on the international team was can vassed, but the muter was not determined.

It would, under ordinary circumstances, be in decorous to reler to tho domestic proceedings of a Club. But anything affecting tbo status of the oentun mai oarsmen la ol such general Interest, that it may bo considered as a matter of course public property. Reierenco bas been frequently made 10 tbe fact that there are two aquatic clubs in tho University of Dub lin?tbe Rowing and tbe Boat Club. Tbe lormor is the senior; the latter has for its Vice President the Rev. John Leslie, one of the Fellows of Trinity College, whose reputation in connection with aquatics has crossed tbo Atlantic. The centennial crew who purpose appearing at Phila delphia to support the honor of Dublin oarsmen is composod of men from both clubs. Ouly one, how ever, Hlckson, is from tbe Rowing Club; tbe other three, Pcntland and the two Barringtons, are from the Boat Club. Tbia difference of clubs made no discord among tbo young men. But it was seen that some dif ficulty might ariso out ol it, in this way:?In almost all English and Irish regattas most of the coutcsis are confined to crews %of "recognized" boat clubs. Now, this crew did not belong to any one recognized elub: its memlxrrs wore members ol two distinct clubs, all of them did not be.oug to tbe snmo club. i'erlups tbls rule holds good iu America also, and the crew might And, when too lato, that they were debarred from entering lor some racc at which they should bavo likeJ to appear. Tho obvious remedy was to mako them all members of the same club. Accordingly Mr. Hit kson was admitted an honorary member of the Horn Club, and the other Ibroe were ad mitted to the honorary membership ol the Rowing Ciuh. But tt was urgedl'erbaps honorary member ship wilt not bo looked upon as a sufficient qualification under the rulo just re erred to. At tho same time it came to bo known that soino influential members of tho lloat Club wero not pleased wi h the composite character of the centcnninl crow They would have | preferred that it should include none but Boat cluti , men. The Biirringtous, however, wero stanch to tho ' choice of Hickson, who Is generally recoguized as a ! splendid oar!>muo, whose equal it would not be easy to j fltid among Dublin men. Thev would not give him tip ' and take an interior man. Tliey uodlned to go to America except with the best crew that cotilu ho picked out ol tuo University. Actio* under tho In fluence of tho axclusiomsts, tho Boat Club Committee lorbado the use of tlie clun boats or tho club trainer (Hiifln) to tho centennial crew. Somo shrewd adviser hero steppod in, and suggested that all difficulties would be solved straight away II the three outsiders became ordinary members ol Uio Rowing Club. Tney accepted this suggestion. Tncir names 1 wero proposed by Messrs. Bushc and Millar, the vete ran captain and tbo secretary of tbe clut). To-day tho ballot was held. There was an unprecedented attend ance of members. The three gentlemen, Pent land and tbe tw? Barring ons, were unau mousiy clectcd ordin ary members of tbo Rowing Club. This decision Is ipertally creditable to all psrtics, because Mr. C'hsries B Barringtou was one ol the original *oceiiers from tbo Rowing Club, who founded the Boat Club. It is a sort of return a art prrmttri amnurt. The fnur gentlemen baing now ordinary members of one and tb? same club, are qualified to uppenr as a crew ol a rseoynued club at any regatta. On ait that at a meeting of tbe club to'be held in a few dayr they will be regularly authorized to represent tbe Rowing Club at tho intercolleglsto contest i at 8aratogn. If the dato ol tbls event will allow of their appearance. In this case the formal answer will go trom the Rowing Club In a row days to tbe lutercollnglate Committee, accepting their in\ita tion, which was previously declioed simply because the clab was not In a positiou to send a crew. Whether they will also appear at Henley next mouth as a jrew from tbe Rowing Club is not yet decldod. I will only add that tbey have for some dsys resumed their practice in a four-oared boat, and aro much im ? roved. Tbo two best rowers aro Hickson ana Charles srrington, who, at present, are Nos. 2 and 8. re spectively. Pentland and Croker Harrington (the how and stroke respectively) havo still room lor improve ment. Their chief clelcct is that they slide too soon when tbey throw themselves lorward, and hence row more from their arms and less with the weight or tbeir body than is uestrablCL But, notwitb suudmg these defects, they are s poworful crew.
