ITra. Jones Wister of Pnlladelphia is
a eentral figure la the contest over the
fortune left by the late WD&am

q seethed all bla estate, ralued at about
00,000,000, to bis only daughter, Ann
M. Weigbtman Walker, widow of the
lata CoBgTeasman Bobert J. C. Walker.
Mr. Weigbtman bad two sons, both
now' dead, and Mrs. Wlater waa the
wife of one of these, William Weight-
' ... V
man, Jr. After the bitter's death she
married Jones Wiater, a member of the
most exclusive social set la Philadel
phia. Her maiden name waa Sabina
d'lnvllllera, and she ia descended from
a French family of noble rank promi
nent in the time of Louis XVI, the chief
representative of which left hla native
land at the time of the French revolu
tion and", coming to Americaj settled
Mrs. Winter is proud of ber blue
blood and has always mdved In aodal
circus which the rest of the Weight-
mana, with all their weaJta, were un
able, to enter. After he! fijarriage to
Mr. Wister ber social pruniaeaoi be
came aU the more marked. This waa
one cause or alienation between Mrs.
Wister and her sister-in-law, Mrs. Wal
ker, who was unable to make a social
bit Another cause waa due to a pe
culiar Incident in the history of the
family. The elder Welghtman was al
ways very fond of Mrs. William
Welghtman, Jr, and after bis son's
aeatn ne maae a proposal of mar
riage to ber. She held him In esteem;
but, as he was then eighty yean of
age, she deemed bis offer of marriage
absurd and rejected it The old gen
tleman felt piqued, and, though she
afterward sought and secured bis con
sent to her marriage to Mr. Wister,
be never again waa on close terms
with ber, and It la alleged that Mrs.
Walker encouraged ber father to give
Mrs. Wister the cold shoulder. .
However, It Is asserted that on tne
letter's second .marriage . the elder
Welghtman not only set aside 8100.-

Welghtman, Jr.'a, five daughters but
promised that in Ms will each would
