SON CONTESTS WILL OF H. J. BROENING

Octogenarian Lawyer's Only Child Charges Fraud

Caveat proceedings contesting the will of his father, Henry J. Broening, were filed in the Orphans' Court by H. Lyman Broening. Hollywood Cameraman, and only child of the octogenarian lawyer.

Mr. Broening, a brother of the former Mayor William F. Broening, died May 10, leaving an estate that has been appraised at $35,375.04. Mr. Browning formerly had been active in politics, once serving an elective term as a court clerk.

His will, dated October 21, 1937, left his entire estate to his second wife, Mrs. Althea E. Broening, whom he had married a year before.

The caveat filed by the son through Harry O. Levin, attorney, contested the will on four main grounds -- undue influence, fraud, mental incapacity and improper execution of the will.

Mr. Broening lived in the 3600 block of Hillsdale road. That property had been left to his second wife along with the rest of his estate. The will revealed that an ante-nuptial agreement concerning their inheritance rights had been made before the second marriage, but that he desired the agreement to be disregarded in order to give the wife the entire estate. The will failed to even mention the son.

Note: From Wikipedia: Henry Lyman Broening (June 30, 1892 - June 6, 1983) was an American cinematographer who in 1922 was on the editorial board of "American Cinematographer" magazine and served on the board of governors of the American Society of Cinematographers.? ? He worked on films that include "May Blossom" (1915) and wrote about the beginnings of the American Society of Cinematographers (ASC).

He Wants A Divorce

From the Baltimore Sun, Feb. 20.

Mrs. Sarah E. Franklin, who was married December 19, 1878, and is the mother of eight children, preferred the excitement of a women's lodge to the comforts of home, according to a bill for absolute divorce filed in Circuit Court No. 2 yesterday by her husband, Chas. S. Franklin, through John H. Grill, attorney.

The direful results that followed when Mrs. Franklin joined the lodge are graphically set forth in the bill of complaint, which is unique, as Mr. Franklin tells of his troubles in the first person. The following is part of the complaint:

"Up to a period of about three or four years prior to their separation his wife was all a good and faithful wife should be to her husband, when, alas for me! she joined a women's lodge, and then my pleasure was at an end, and she would go to the meeting of the said lodge against my wish and consent, would come home at any and all unseemly hours, would visit adjacent cities on lodge business, so I was informed, and I and my home were neglected. This state of affairs continued until I could bear the same no longer and after I protested in vain I was told that before the defendant would withdraw from the woman's lodge I could leave home, which I did."

Then Mr. Franklin charges his wife with unfaithfulness.

Mr. and Mrs. Franklin were married in Carroll county, Maryland, and separated December 6., 1903, when, he alleges, he was compelled to leave his wife because of her misconduct. Seven of their eight children survive -- two sons, aged respectively 24 and 22 years, and five daughters, aged respectively 21, 19, 17, 15 and 12 years. Mr. Franklin asks the custody of the minor children.

HE GETS NO DIVORCE
          
Charles S. Franklin Said Wife Preferred Lodge To Home.

FAILED TO PROSECUTE CASE

Complaint is Dismissed Under Rule Of Court Because The Proceeding Was Not Followed Up.

Judge Harlan signed an order yesterday, as of Circuit Court? ? No. 2, dismissing the bill of complaint of Charles S. Franklin against Sarah E. Franklin for an absolute [de]vorce, which was filed February 19 last and charged unfaithfulness. An answer filed by Mrs. Franklin February 24 denied the charge. Under a rule of the court the bill was dismissed because the plaintiff failed to continue the proceedings in the case. They were married in December, 1878, and have seven children living.

In his bill applying for a divorce, Mr. Franklin alleged that his troubles started about four years ago when his wife joined a women's lodge. Continuing, he said in the bill: "She would go to the meeting of said lodge against his wish and consent, would come home at any and all unseeingly hours, and would visit adjacent cities on lodge business, so he was told, and he and his home were neglected. After he protested in vain, he was told that before the defendant would withdraw from the woman's lodge he could leave their home, which he did." John

H. Grill was attorney for the plaintiff and Harry E. Scherf for the defendant.

INJURED IN TRAIN WRECK     

C. S. Franklin, Flagman, In Critical Condition In Washington

Charles S. Franklin, 55 years old, 1532 Light street, is in a critical condition at the Emergency Hospital, Washington, suffering from internal injuries received in rear-end collision at Hyattsville early yesterday morning. The accident occurred on the Alexandria branch of the railroad at Hyattsville. Mr. Franklin, who was the flagman of the forward train, was in the caboose at the time. The train was blocked and while standing waiting to be released the other train crashed into it. Several cars were damaged, but the track was cleared in a short time. The injured flagman was taken to the Emergency Hospital. A dispatch received last night by his family stated that he was not expected to live through the night.

Mr. Franklin is married and has seven children. He has been in the employ of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad for several years as a flagman. He was unable yesterday to tell anything of the wreck.

ELHANAN H. FRANKLIN, OF BERRETT, MARYLAND, ASSIGNER OF ONE-HALF TO WILLIAM A. DORSEY, OF SAME PLACE

CULTIVATING-PLOW SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 468,743, dated February 9, 1892.

Application filed April 13, 1891, Serial No. 388,670. (No model)
To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, ELHANAN H. FRANKLIN, a citizen of the United States, residing at Berrett, in the County of Carroll and State of Maryland, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Cultivating-Plows, of which the following is a specification.

This invention relates to that class of cultivating-plows in which the drag-bars are laterally adjustable to work the shovels closer together or farther apart.

The main objects in view are to provide for the lateral movement of the drag-bars at one side of the plow independent of those at the other side, to provide for raising the drag-bars on pivots to elevate the shovels from the ground, and to provide an improved construction of colter and wheel to facilitate side-hill plowing.

To this end the invention consists in the novel features of construction and combinations of parts hereinafter described, and pointed out in the claims.
     ............................."

In testimony whereof I affix my signature in the presence of two witnesses.
