It was commonly supposed that Colonol William Phillipe, president' of the Alle gheny .Valley railroad, and one of Pittsburg's , millionarios, who died last week, was a bachelor and that his entire rfcal estate would go to his only brother and sister. However, it appears that there are other claimants to the rich inheritance, of this bachelor millionaire, as he was called. The story goes that Colonel Phillips was married years ago to widow ilermingray. The matter was always kept secret, the lady, who retained the name of Mrs. He mingray, having her residence apart from Colonel Phillips. As a result of this union five children were born, four boys and a girl. Mrs. Ilemingray died some six or seven years ago. Throe of the children are also dead, and the remaining two, whose names are William and Robert B' Ilemin gray, are still living, and it is they who now lay claim to the entire estate on the ground that they are leg...
