One of Multnomah county' moat sen
aattonal legal cases, that of th fight
between Centenary Methodist Episcopal
church and Mrs. Jane Abraham, was
recalled this morning when Attorney
H. K. Sargent, guardian appointed by
the county court for the late Mrs.
Abraham, tiled a petition for produc
tlon and proof of her will.
Mrs. Abraham made a will In which
Fremont Abraham, her nephew, 1 named
a executor, and he baa the will. The
peUUoa filed this morning requests that
h be required to produce It and that
It be proved according to law. The pe
tition 1 mad by J. P. Flnley a Bon, who
are creditor of th estate In the sum
of $176 for funeral expenses.
In the petlUon It Is alleged that the
only property owned by Mrs. Abraham
at the time of her death waa an allowed
and preferred claim against the estate
of Jamea Abraham, her husband, and
another claim against the same estate,
of unknown value. The claim of un
known value evidently refers to th liti
gation with Centenary- church. Mrs.
Abraham, aa heir of Jamas Abraham,
obtained a verdict through her guardian.
Attorney Sargent, to the effect that the
$16,000 notea paid to the church out
of his estate was not all lawfully dis
bursed, and whatever claim may rest
upon this Is doubtless referred to in the
Whan' Mr. Abraham died he made hi
wife executrix, without bond. In th
litigation resulting later, it appeared
that Mrs. Abraham deeded all the prop
erty to Centenary church, the aggregate
being variously estimated at from $ 1 00. -000
to $250,000. LB. thl transfer, ar
rangement waa made for payment of
certain sums for the aged woman' sup
port. Subsequently a suit was brought
by Mrs. Abraham to et aside this deed
on the ground of fraud, and Judgment
waa rendered accordingly. The church
then presented note of th value of
JI6.000, signed by Mr. Abraham, and
asked for their payment Mr. Abra
ham, aa executrix, disallowed the claim.
To collect the notes a suit waa In
stituted in the county court The
amount waa cut down to $8,000. The
case waa then appealed to th circuit
court and th Jury returned a verdict
for but $1,300 of the $16,000. Thl was
afterward set sslde on technical grounds.
but before the case came up for a
second hearing In th circuit court Mrs.
Abraham resigned a executrix and W.
ft Burke waa appointed. Aa executor,
Mr. Burke immediately allowed the $16.
000 claim. Various Interests had peti
tioned the county court to have a guard

chosen by th court to fill this office.
But before appointment of the guardian.

filed - t ha final account. Tha proceed

Her will, now In charge of the nephew
