in Tnr; mattep. of the estate of safiia zctpliex
Tho case is submitted on nn agreed statement
of facts. It appears that Xnpaa Zupplien made
a trust deed, beating dato April 15. 1871, of all
her property to S. 15. Dole, the respondent, to be
managed by bim, and paid out for her benefit and
purposes, therein stipulated; in which trust deed
it was expressly declared that in case of the death
of tho 6aid Napua. the trustee should convey tbe
said real and personal property, or whatsoever
part of it may remain in bis hands, to the heirs
of her body, or according to tlis tenor of her
will should she leavo a valid will.in fee.or if neith
er, to her heir3 according to law.
It is argued further, that Napua Zupplien was
married to Kutuabina on or about the ISth day
of .May last post, and that she died intestate on
or about the 24th of Sept.ast past, leaving her
That previous to the said marriase, and with
tho knowledge of the; said Kaluahine, alio the
said Napua Zupplien JCaluahiue, conveyed all her
estate, real and personal, with tho exception of
her interest in the awa trade, to the said re
spondent in trust as aforesaid.
Jt is agreed that Olepau and Palo are tho broth
er and sun of another brother of the lute Xapua
Zupplien Kuluahine and are the nearest blood re
lations; and it is alleged by tho counsel for tbe
parties in interest that the defendent died with
out issue; und that ehe left no will.
Upon this statement of facts the petitioners
nsk judgment of the Court in the question of lh
heirship of the said personal property, which is the
matter of controversy between satd petitioners.
The husband claims that by virtue of the mar
riage he became the owner of the personal pro
perty of the wife and at her. death was entitled
to the possession of the same, ultbough conveyed
in trust us before stated. I!y the Code, the hus
band is accountable for the debts of his wife, con
tracted either belore or after marriage. Tie ia
bouud to maintain and provide for his wife. The
huibuud shall in virtue of his tnurringe and in
coii'iderutiou of the responsibilities imposed upon
linn by law, bo the virtual owner, except other
wise stipulated by express marriugo contract, of
ull moveable properly belonging to li is wife ante
rior to marriage, und ot ull moveable property ac
cruing to her ufler marriage, over all of which he
shall'havo absuluto control unless otherwise stip
ulated by contract.
The Code further provides that tho husband is
entitled to the priority in the administration of the
propertyortbodeceascd wife. Tho English statute
is thesatne.uiid ho is said to administer fur bis own
benefit and for the recovery of her outstanding
property to his own use nnd enjoyment, includ
ing rights vested and contingent, and funds at
her disposal during her life-time or held in trust
for her. This principle! of distribution, cstabltsh
ori in KiicUniirnWforinerly recognized generally
in tho United States, bat has been very much
modiGed by legislation in some of tho States.
This is substantially a ri-onnctment of tho com
mon law. for the right of tho husband at common
law was not only to administer, but to enjoy ex
clusively the effects of his deceased wife.
It is contended by tbe counsel for the heirs,
that tho husband is not entitled in any event to
tho choses in action, unless ho hus reduced the
sarao to possession during the life of the wife.
.In the case ol Whittaker vs. Whittaker C John
117 and 118, the Court say that the husband sur
viving his wife, i3 entitled to have her choscs in
action as well as to lier personal estate in posses
sion, and that by a series of ca?os it is now set
tled that tho representative of the husband is en
titled as much to that species of property as lies
hi action or suit, and is not reduced to possession
us aqy other. The same principlo is contained in
Christian s notes to 2d Black. Com. -135. The
husband shall hare administration of all his wife's
personal estate which he did not reduce to pos
session beforo her death, and shall retain it to his
own use. Elliott vs. Collins 3 Atk. 527 j Cart
vs. Kuss 1 p. Wms. 383.
The same principlo is recognized in tha more
recent cases. In Weils vs. Tyler, 5 Foster, 312
If the husband survives his wife he is entitled
to administration, and to recover and receive any
property in her possession or to which she is en
titled, but which ho had not reduced to hu pos
session during her life, to his use.
A bequest of personal property including chos;
es in action, to a mumed woman, vests the same
in her husband, and upon her decease he takes
the property by survivorship as well as b tho
force of tho stutute of distribution, although he
does nothing during the coverture to reduce tho
same to possession. 12 Cush., 382 ; 22 Picker
In Rawson vs. Nichols, N. Y. Rep. 113, the
Court say that the property in this case stands
precisely upon the fooling of choses in action of
the wife which have not been reduced to posses
sion duriug the coverture. In this event, tho hus
band hus tho tight to receive nod enjoy them as
his own, either as an incident to the marital rela
tion und as flowing from it, or as an incident to
his right of administration npuu her estate.
Kent, 2d vol. Com. 119, says Under the stat
ute it is held that tbe husband is entitled, for his
own benefit, jure marali, to administer and to
take all her chattels, real, things in action and ev
ery other species of personal property, whether re
duced to possession or contingent or recoverable
only by suit, but if tbe wife leaves choses in a
lion not reduced to possession in the wife's lifi
timp, tbe husband will be liable for debts, dum
sola, to that extent, for those choses in action
will be assets in his hands.
The husband has the right to sue for and re-
recover debts due the wife at tho time of tbo
marriage, although they are not vested ab3o!ulely
in the husband. If the wife dies and the hus
band survives her before he has reduced tlie chose
in action to possession, it does not strictly sur
vive to him, but be is ,'entitled to recover the
same to his own nso by acting as her adminis
By the statute of distribution of 22d and 23d
Charles II. and the 25th section of the statnte of
tbe 29tb of Charles II., the husbands of femes
coteri who die intestate bare a right to adminis
ter upon tbe personal estate, and to recover and
enjoy the same. This applies to any species of
personal property, whether reduced to possession
or contingent, or recoverable only by suit. Gad

1S6.00 PER YEAR.
For a proper anderstanding of the right3 of tha
parties it is necessary to examine into the intents
and purposes of the deed of the decedent to the
trustee. It appears by tbe deed that she con
Vfyed the property for her benefit and use bat to
be under the management of the trustee. It is
in the nature of a self-imposed guardianship.
There was no provision for the payment of any
portion to any one bat herself, but at her death
ber legal heirs were to inherit. Without thi3
provision even, the property would desjend to
her legal heirs. It is not in any respect in the
natnre of a contract ; she doubtless thought that
the property would be safer in the hands of a
trustee or agent jnd would exoncratalber from
ihe'ear-5 of its management; and this seems to
have been the sole purpose. While tbe property
of a feme sole descends to her lecal heirs, if mar
riage intervene?, then the inheritance is changed
and the husband takes.urer morati: according to
the provisions of the Code, by which he becomes
the owner of the moveable property, and if there
are no childrea the real cstato descends to her
heirs as if she had died sole.
Bat it is contended on the part of the heirs of
the decedent, that if they cannot legally claim
by virtue of the tra3t deed, that they can claim
one half of the property by the law of descent.
The statuto declares that if the intestate shall
leave no issue, his estate shall descend one half
to his widowed it is contended that if thoin
testate is a female and sho leaves no issue, her
estate shall descend one half to her husband.
The right of tho husband nndcr the marriage
Act, and his right under the law of descent, are
very neoperly considered together.
He has a right under the marriage Act to all
the personal property of the wife, whether ac
quired before or after marriage, and by tho law
of descent, as contended for by the connsel, ho is
entitled to one half of the property both real
and personal. and the heirs of the wife to the other
half. Tho Court docs not regard this as a sound
construction of the Statute. Tbe husband must
take nnder the marriugo Act, or under that of
descent. He cannot tinder both provisions. For
by the first he takes all the personal property,
and under the law of descent, as contended, he
would take one half only of the personal and one
half of the real. The provisions are incompatible.
There is only ono condition under which the
husband can inherit the property of the wifo,
and that is, where sho dies intestate and leaves
no kindred but her husband, and in that case ho
shall inherit all ber estate.
We are of opinion, therefore, that-the personal
property referred to in the deed of trust becamo
the property of the husband. Kaluahine. by virtue
of his marriage with Napua Zupplein. Lot Judg

The CoitMlitiitioiiiii Il.vici'ItiicntN In
rrienna Corresrwndenco (Oct. 11) of London Mail.l
Tho Bohemian Diet, from which it will be re
membered the opposition minority seceded, has
passed without debate, all tho proposals of its
committee, and tho address, together with tho
fundamental laws, will be sent at once to Vienna
to be presented to the Emperor. The question
now is what will bo the answer of the Crown to
the conditions of the Czechs.
If over there was a case of asking with tho
French "Qui trompe-t-oa ici?" it is the present
one. To believe that the demands put forward
by the Czechs are tho last words of the solution
agreed upon by the Minister-President and tho
Czechs, a3 the only one calculated to restore in
ternal peaco among the populations of Austria,
would imply so harsh a judgment on tho political
capacity of Connt Hohenwart a3 is by no means
warranted by his past career or actions since he
took office. Even bis bitterest enemies must
give him credit for tho skill which he has main
tained his position and influence in high quarters,
and gathered together tho Conservative, Clerical,
and non-German elements to oppose them to the
Liberal party which has been in power since 1867.
Until, therefore, tho contrary is proved by facts,
Count Elohenwart must have the benefit of. tho
donbt, and wo must suppose that the Czechish
demands are the first and not tbo last word of
the eolation intended.
Manifold can bo tho meaning of this first word.
It may mean the first price named by tho shop
keeper in an Oriental bazaar, which is tried on al
though there is not the remotest hope of its be
ing accepted. Thia imaginary price may havo
been agreed upon for form's sake by both side3,
each of them with the nlterior view of getting
tho better in the final bargain. But tho possibil
ity is by no mean 3 excluded that tho privato ne
gotiations wero npt conducted with precisene33,
and that at the Iat moment, after having com
promised tbe Minister and having allowed him to
burn his ships, the Czechs came forward with
pretensions which were as new to tbe Minister
President as to tho rest of tho world. The length
of time which the committee of the Bohemian
Diet took to draw up the address and its preten
tions, and the necessity which ar03e at la3t for
having the cbiet movers in the matter np at Vi
enna would seem to indicate that at least np to a
certain point such has been the cae. Another
meaning of this, as I believe, fir3t word spoken
by tbe Czech3, may be to show those who are
averse to all concession that something most be
done if eternal peace is to be restored, only that
in this case there has been chosen for tbe purpose
an expedient ju3t calculated to produce tbe oppo
site impression, not only in those who have been
and still are again3t any concession to tbe Czechs,
but even in those who were willing to go very far
bnt not tbe length of breaking np the monarchy
into .1 set of States nnited only bya federal bond.
There is one moro possible construction, and this
would be the most dangerous namely, that there
exisjs a settled plan to furnish the most convinc
ing evidence, that where tbe pretensions of the
different populations are co wide apart 33 the
Czechish demands are from the present Constitu
tion to which the Germans stick so stubbornly, it
is hopeless to expect that the two antagonistic
parties will ever come to an agreement by their
own free will, and therefore, that the poop!c3 of
Austria aro unfit to govern thoraselres.

In the meantime the sensation prodseed by
the Czechish demands hare been very great ia
deed, not only upon the Constitutional party bat
even in the Ministerial camp. That it abould
cause indignation in the former was to be ui peel
ed, but it seems that the surprise, not to say con
sternation, among those on whose co-opmtraag
tha Ministry must reckon to carry out any pkaj
of concession which it may have, 1a scarcely lesc
However averse tha Conservatives and Clerical!
as a body may be to tbo Liberals and their polky, "
none, or very few of them, are prepared to sacri
fice tho unity nay, the existence of the Aus
trian Empire to their aversion for the Liberals.
Indeed it has always been tho special beast ot
these elements to have the real interests of Aus
tria mora at heart than any one else. It is there
fore rather too much to reckon on thw Miod
ness to expect them to help to" pass the Czechish,
demands even with considerable alterations in tha
Reichsrath, and tho organ of Cardinal Rassoher,
tho roitsreunoT, which might have been export
ed to be most enchanted, expresses faitbfoHy the
impression produced on the mass of the CooserT
ative3, and Clericals, when in its remarks upon
the "surprise" it says that there are many honest
and enlightened patriots who see in tbe realiza
tion of this compromise with the Czechs the end of
Xot more enchanted seem the Poles. They
have soon become aware that this independent
position, if it was granted to tbo Czecbjwoa!J
have some considerable, inconveniences for them
selves, and theso inconveniences touch just the
most sensitive point the financial. The Czechs
claim the right to contribute only a fixed sum for
common affairs, s that naturally all that the
Czechs would not take upon themselves wookl
fall so much tho more heavily upon others, and
especially upon thoso who, like Gaktcia, baro
hitherto contributed little in comparison to oth
ers. Besides, such a favor to the Czechs would
considerably interfere with tho stipulations medo
with tho Poles, according to which, tbe same sum
which is now spent for tho administration of Go
lacia "hould bo given over to the local govwa
mcnt ysarly to defray tho expenses of internal
All theso symptoms of opposition manlfestrRg
themselves among tho supporters of the Ministry
itself, besides tho desperate resistance which the
Constitutionalists prepare, may excite a well-
founded hopo that this strange conciltatiocscheme
will never become the law of the country. TLo
only danger is lest the Constitutionalists, nsable
to control their just indignation, should allow
themselves to bo hurried into some inconsiderate
step nnd thereby loso again the ground wbieh
they have gained. Tho great point Is to weigh
well every step, and to observe 00 their part, all
coustitutional forms strictly. The Goreratsetlt
has all along maintained that It will striotrj ad

teration, ffit were advisable, shunH be eBeeHed
with an observance of the CwMtiMtfoB, of t
present existing. Until now it cannot be said
that there has been any gross violation of tWe
Constitution. Enormous as are tbe deowmk ef
tho Czechs, they are only tbe wishes of tbu
Bohemian Diet, and it is tbe business of tbo
Reichsrath to examine them and agree to or re
ject tbem. Now, the Bohemian Diet is bat a
Rnmp Diet all tbe Germans having left usder
protest. Besides, it is quite certain that tMs
Bump Diet will only send members to the Kfcba
rath under protest. Bat these are ail tbfogg
which tho Reichsrath itself has to judge, and an-
til in this latter some gross illegality fe eomnsH
ted, it must pass as legal also. Now all tbe Diets
in whidi the Constitutionalists have the upper
band have chosen only members whom tby ex
pect will not take part in any but a "legal" ReMs
rath; and this is sufficient guarantee for these
Diets that when their representatives see the ma
jority of tho Reichsrath doing something cOfitra-
ry to tbo Constitution, will consider their mbtioa
as ended. It does not however, therefore fsHew
that tho Constitutionalists, 03 seemed the inten
tion io tbe first indignation, ought to withdraw
from tbe Reichsrath at once, under protest. Oa
the contrary, they ought to fight as long aa Grat
ing is possible. If they are out-voted they can
speak-aod make their voices heard ; to reBoaeee
this would be tatamount to giving up a powerful
weapon they hokl. '
Value of Old Pafebs. A complete file of
tho London Times is quoted at 3,000 rterRsg,
and would brine double that priee if it were de
. manded. This is a small sum compared with
American prices. A complete file of aay im
portant journal bears a valuo which is hardly to
computed in money. IJenco the importance of
keeping o!d papers. Thirty-three year ago tbe
HeraH was started. Had any one laid np a few
copiel of each issue be would hare had a rich
reward. A complete file of tbat paper weak!
cost, with interest at compound rate, S800. It
wonld now readily bring 85,000. The sum of
82,500 was recently voted by tbo Common Coua
cil of New York city for the purpoee of pur
chasing a set which commenced with 18-12, ami
which was, of course, deficient in the first seven
volumes. Tbe librarian io tbe City Hall infermed
mo tbat they were frequently consulted, and also
that they could bo sold at a large adrasce. The
only complete files of tbe Herald, of wbieh I
bavo any knowledge, are those in Bennett's own
bands, and tbeso aro kept from tbe public eye.
Another complete filo was in tbe hands of tbo
paper merchants, Pearse & Brooks, who snppHed
bim with material, but this was lost when their
warehouse was barned, several years ago. There
are statements in the early issues of tbe ITzrabi,
which can throw light upon important question
now about to be brought into tbo courts. Lawyers
havo gone to tbe Herald establishment and so
licited the privilego of a reference, bat tbe reply
is unchanged in character. One man faoHsbly
spoke of legal compulsion, and was politely told
to " try it." The only way for those who wish
to possess such archives is to subscribe for the
papers, and to keep the file unbroken until time
gives it a value. Having referred to tbe London
Times, I will add tbat it was commenced in 17S9,
tbe same year tbat the Moniteur was started is.
Paris, and both have retained their positions as
the leading papers of England and France, until
they are now upward of four score yean olJ.
Fi!o3 of the Monileur are not so scarce and cost
ly as those of .the Times. 1 think the reason cf
this is that tha latter was commenced daring the
French revoialion, and people were anxious to
preserve a record of tbo30 exciting times-f Exchange.
