The Pending Benefits Wifl
To Provide for All the Wants of the Reedy
t All . Qjntrftutions to Be Handled by the
Merchants Protective Association .
The leader bf the relief movement net
in the Council chamber th afternoon for
the piirpoae of centrallstitx their work.
With Dr. Edgar P. Hill in the chair.
In an informal talk beforie the meeting
Dr. HU1 atafed that the raiUter of relief
was liable to be overdone. "Take
Srlngwater, for instance., the doctor
uld, "there are only about 30 families
there and they now have supplies on
hand to last them for two years. I think
we should centralize our efforts and then
there will not be bo many duplications."
Mr, Flegel, in open meeting, advocated
that the Merchants' Protective Assocla
tion be made the central cuiiiiiilttee
the relief of the Are sufferers. He said
that the association had Tealfy done
more than any other body, as thtly were
in touch by wire with all the place:
the suffering is most acute. Th
elation is made up of the leading b
men of the community and Mr. I
made) a motion that all funds collect
relief purposes be turned over tot trie i
Merchants' . Protective Association jand
Mr. 8abln, its secretary, be made treas
urer of the funds, If they would acefpt.
I. N. Flelschner, one of the offlcer of
the Merchants' Protective Association! In
addressing the meeting, told what had
been done by the association, and acoept
ed the responsibility of its acting as the
central relief body, but stated that Mr.
6abln was a very buay man and would
require help. He also suggested that all
contributions of clothing and provisions
be boxed ready for shipment, as the offi
tfa of the association were all business
men and too busy to attend to such de
tails. Rev. Simpson said that he was heart
ily in aoeord with Mr. Flegel's motion to
make the Merchants' Protective Associa
tion the central relief body. He also
protested against the solicitation of any
more funds, as be' thought the different
ones making donations and soliciting
them were In their open-heartedness
overdoing the thing and that wltsj WhaT
there Is now on hanf'ttncf wHat is In

that every one there was better supplied
with bedding and clothing than they
have been in many a day. If ever. There
was enough supplies on hand to last
the resident Jn that district two years
or more without Jhelr ever having to
turn over their hands.
Quite a number of other spoke, but
all with the exception of C. M. Parker,
who is interested ' In religious work
around Lents, were In favor of Mr. Fie
gel's motion regarding centralization. Mr.
Parker thought the the religious bodies
should be more in evidence In the dis

this afternoon were Rev. E. P. H411, Mrs.

provisions, furniture and bedding will
amount to several thousand dollars more
The work has been handled with great
activitty, and the committees who have

Miss Biggar Desires to
Have Bennett's Will
LONG BEACH, N. J., Sept 19. Argu
ments were .begun before Justice Helsley
today In the appeal of Laura Biggar, the
actress to have set aside the probate of
the will of the late Henry M. Bennett, a
mllionalre who left Miss Biggar the bulk
of bis fortune. The case already has
cocupled the attention of the courts and
public for some time and it promises to be
still more interesting before it Is conclud
ed. ' When It became known that the
bulk of Mr. Bennett's estate had been
left to Miss Biggar the other legatees and
Ttindsmen began a contest of the will, but
this was recently settled. , It was thought
the matter had been closed, and that
Miss Biggar had taken possession of (he
valuable New. ?9rk C'tK Property, left to
her. But the move resulting In today's
court proceedings gave an entirely new
turn to the affair. By an affidavit filed
with the court asking for a reopening of
the case Miss Biggar declares that she
and Mr. Bennett were married in 1898, and
that after his death she gave birth te a
child, which died on August IS last; that
in Mr. Bennett's will no mention was
made of this child, and that by reason of
the child' birth the will was void. Should
th application to set the will aside be
granted MiaaBIggar will receive the en
tire property, both real and personal.
