Mr Myers made the trip as attorney for the Wilbur school district, and the matter taking him to the Douglas County capital is the settlement of the Condit estate, which gives promise of being an interesting balancing of accounts. As has before been stated in these columns prior to his hasty exit from an active participation in existence, Mr Condit, more familiarly known as Wild Goose Bill, had the fore-thought to make a will. The heirs to the estate were an assortment of half breed progeny, one of which and the best beloved, being afflicted and helpless from infancy. The greater portion of the property was devised to this child during his lifetime, an din case of his death was to go to the Wilbur public school district. An executor was named in the will to serve the interests of the helpless beneficiary and at the death of the boy the stewardship ended. It is as representative for that district that Mr Myers is now taking an inning at settling the business. He will probably return home Sunday." (LCT: 4-28-1899)
