A Widow and Her Children Get Justice,
San Francisco, Feb. 12. An Important
case was decided in the United Statet
circuit court of appeals this morning,
which seriously affects the title of the
town of Everett, Wash., and the evl
dence adduced in the case shows how
an unfortunate widow and her half or
phans were wantonly robbed of theli
rights and. all that years of toll and
Industry had garnered up for them. A
Mexican war veteran named Hatch died
years ago, leaving his wife, who wa
tui Indian woman, 320 acres of land
which he had taken up. Hatch died in
1890, before his land was entirely proved
up. He left his wife and children to
the care of E. C. Ferguson. His wife
probably acting on Ferguson's advice,
proved up on the land and got a per
fect title to both parcels. She had 1m
pllclt confidence in Ferguson, and he
suggested that she give him the power
of attorney, which she did without hesl
tancy. He sold the property on which
the town of Everett now stands for 10
an acre. The property was transferred
to a man named Henry .Hewitt, who,
within six months, sold it to a syndl
cate for S180 an acre. The remaining
160 acres were left to tho Hatch chll
dren, but as Ferguson was their guar
dlan, he had but little difficulty In get
tlnif the consent of their mother to al
low him to dispose of the property at a
good price. Mrs. Hatch brought suit
in the circuit court of Washington, and
It was decided that the property on
which the town of Everett lies must be

ver shots number twenty-eight.
