Contest Over Will
Los Angeles, Cal, July 25.—The Salem-Charles family of Boston has been given the verdict by the jury in the Hill will case. Mrs. Gertrude Driggs sought to establish her right to the fortune of $142,000 left by the aged Charles Hill. The jury decided that the will presented by Mrs. Gertrude Driggs, in which her daughter, Grace Driggs, was made the heir of Charles Hill, was signed by Hill, whose true name is declared to be Salem Charles Hill. The verdict named eight members of the Salem-Charles family as the true heirs to the old man's fortune.
