Tbeotlore Cuyler Heard From.
Yesterday afternoon the Railroad Commit
tee of Coanoils held a consultation with
Messrs. Theodore Cuyler and J. Edgar Thom
son, of the Pennsylvania Railroad, in regard
to the resolution passed last Thursday, which
directs the City Solioitor to . take legal
measures to prevent the lease of the New
Jersey Roads to the Pennsylvania Railroad.
Mr. Theodore Cuyler explained that the
Pennsylvania road was in reality endeavoring
to protect Philadelphia's interests instead of
harming them. , This city is fifty-nine miles
nearer the Great West than New York. We
have all the advantages. The railroad brings
ns freight, but if our merchants have not the
enterprise or capital to absorb and utilize it,
that is not the fault ef the Pennsylvania
Railroad. In the first plaoe, the lease is con
summated, and bo earthly power can prevent
it. Even if it were broken to-day, how
would that help Philadelphia? .New York
will get the freight in any event, without its
having passed through Philadelphia. It has
been charged that the Pennsylvania road
charges higher freight than the Baltimore
This is not true. They lower their freights
once in a while, but the average rate is
higher. Some roads do not pay dividends,
and. of course, can carry freight lower.
The speech of the gentleman was quite
J. Edgar Thomson also presented similar
views in regard to freight charges.
Mr. Hanna, of the committee, believed the
lease injurious to Philadelphia, and he was
still convinced of the fact.
A vote was taken upon reporting the re
solution favorably, and it was lost by a vote
of 7 to 3.
Mr. G. A. Smith moved to report that it is
inexpedient to adopt the resolution. Agreed
to. The committee then adjourned.

the city had bepn reduced by previous deaths and re
movals to about 85.000 or 40,000 souls. ( Boenos Ayres ordi
narily has a population of over anS.OlHI.) Hearses were to
be seen in all directions and all honrsof theday and nicbt.
Indeed, there were not hearses enough in the city to carry
oft the dead, so that furniture waeoua and other
vehicles bad to be brought into requisition. Co Ml as eoald
with s;rt difficulty be procured, end it ii sai.I that in
tome instances the same coffin was made to anrre a se
cond time, I's tirst ooenpant hating been removed upon
arriving at the grave. At the cemetery the Sonne vu
till more striking, for there was the gathering of tbe
dead. It reminded one of a "mnss meeting" such as we
see in the States during a polittoal . campaign I only in.
stead of giiyly-colnred banners snd flngs there
waved only the black plumes of the hearses, and
instead of tbe shoots and cheers of exulted partisans,
there was only the silence of the dead, and thesubdaed
sobbing of t be mourners. Twenty or th'rty hearses were
constantly awaiting their turn at the gate of the cemetory
to unload their litelnss passengers, and soon as they were
discharged hastened back to tne city for other thnt
were awaiting them. Within the cemetery walls
there were always to be seen scores ' of coffins
waiting for the graves to be prepared to receive
them, Tor the men employed were not sufflcinnt to keep
pace in their dnlelnl work with the rr.pidly accumulating
corpses. Tbe municipality employed still more, until at
one time there was said to be more than a thousand
grave-diggers at work in tbn cemetery, though I believe
this to be an exaggeration. The loss ot life by the pest i
Icnce is variously estimated from lfi.OOO to 25.000. I pre
sume tbe latter lignre more nearly correct, though to tbe
public the truth will never be known.
The Dundas Estate Interesting Decision.
Orphan' CourtJudge Paxnon.
In the ro utter of a petition filed by one of the (lis
trlbutees under the will of the late James Dundas,
to have an unprofitable sale of his Interest re
scinded, Judge l'axson gave the following able de
cision, which will be found Interesting alike to the
professional reader and the layman:
In this case a petition was filed in the Orphans' Court
by William Oswald Dundns, setting forth substantially
that James Dundas died in the month of June, 18k'. Tout
under ana by virtue of bis last will and testament, the
pet it ioner waa entitled to recover one thirty -socond part
of his residuary citato. That some time prior to tbe 8th
day of August, A.D. 1ki6, tbe petitioner being in tut of
money, addressed a letter to Joshua Lippincott, he of
tbe executors of said estate, offering to soli his ft t pe
titioner's) interest in said estate. Itat af tor som taego
tiation, Mrs. Agnes Dundna Lipplncoit, the wile 1 f tbe
said executor.and a distributee under the will, parvbaied
the said interest of t he petitioner for the price or sum
of ten thousand dnlhtrs. i'bat in pursuanoe of said
arrangemont. the petitioner and bis wife, on the seventh
day ot November, IMki, executed a deed to Mrs. Lippincott
for the aaid interest, and received therefor the lull con
sideration money. The petitioner further alleges that he
was induced to sell his interest for ten t housand dollars by
reason of misrepresentations of the condition and value
of the estate, made by tbe said Joshua Lippincott, one of
tbe execntors.and the husband of the purchaser ; and that
tbe real value of bis sbare was more than double what he
received for it. He farther alleges that the executors
supplied Airs. Lippincott with the money to make the
purchase. Tbe petitioner prays tbe Court,
1. That the said deed maybe set aside, and given up,
and cancelled, or
2. '1 hut the said Agnes Dnndas Lippincott msy be de
creed to be a trustee of tbe interest of the petitioner in
en id estat e.
U. 'J hat the said Joshua tippincott and Agnes Dundas
Lippincott be ordered toexecute and deliver to petitioner
a aeed reoonvcying tbe said interest in said estate aeon
the repayment ot tbe money paid to the latter.
4. 1 bat the said .tgnns iiuiulas Lippincott be required
to account for and return to the surviving executors all
sums received by ber on aocount of the said interest.
6. That tbe surviving executors shall pay to the peti
tioner the full amount of hit share and interest in tbe
ii. That tbe auditor upon the accounts of the exeoutors of
the estate of tbe aaid James Dundas suspend the settle
ments of tbe accounts uniil the rights of tbe petitioner in
tbe premises can be ascertained.
7. 'ibatu citution may irsue.
To this petition, and tbe citation issued thereon, Joshua
Lippincott and James Dundas Lippincott, surviving axe
cutois of the will of James Dundas, answer by way of
femurrer, and allege that even if all tbe allegations in
the petition be true, the Orphan?,' Uourt has no jurisdic
tion to tutertain the complaint and grant the relief
'1 be Orphans' Court has no general equity jurisdiction.
It is s court of equity in respect to tbe few subjects
within ite jurisdiction, but as was observed by tne late
Chief-Justice Gibson, in Brinkor .vs. Brinker, 7 13., oo,
"tbe auxilliary powers of such a court have not been
given to it. It is a special tribunal for specific oases, and
its resemb ance to a court of equity consists in its prac
tice of proceeding by petition and answer containing tbe
substance bat not tbe technical subtleties and nioe dis
tinctions of a bill in equity."
Tbe Orphans' Court has no statutory jurisdiction in case
of fraud, accident, or mistake. Without consuming time
by retsrenoa to past legislation upon tills suojecc, it is
sufficient to sn that by act ot lritbof Juno. lH3t. Pardon.
fage Wi, plao. H, tbe jurisdiction of the Orphans' Court
s confined to tbe following cases, viz. :
1. Tbe appointment, control, removal, ana aisonarge
of the guardians ef minora, and tbe settlement of their
account. .... . J.J,
2. 1 be removal ana aiscnarge oi executors auu admin
istrators deriving their authority from tbe register of the
respective county, and the ae .tlement of their accounts.
k The distribution of tbe assets and surplusage of the
estate of decedents after such settlement among creditors
and others interested.
4. The saleoi real estate oi ueceuenus
5. The partition of real estate of intestates among tbe
0. The specific exeontion of contracts made by dece
dents to sell and convey any real estate of which such de
cedent shall die seined.
7. Froceeaings ior mo recovery oi legacies.
u ah imu. within their reanective counties, wherein
executors or administrators, guardians or trustees.msy be
possessed of, or are in any way accountable for, any real or
personal esiaie oi a ut-ttnic". . ..... .
Tnia act baa greatly extended the jurisdiction of the
Orphans' Court over trustees. But its jurisdiction ex
tends only to testamentary trusts. It has ne control over
such as arise by deed. In tbe latter class of cases the
jurisdiction of the Common Fleas is exclusive. In testa
mentary trusts it waa held to be concurrent with the
Orphans' Court. Brown's appeal, aa oones, sjj, over
ruling Whratley vs. Badger, 7 Barr, 45.

sister or Orphans' Court. It is what, is known asacon-

Hill on Trustees, p. 144, divide constractijwtruate into
two classes, as follows: , . . x .
I When tbe acquisition of the legal estate is tainted
with fiaud, legal or equitable. These arjt known as trusts
3 When the trust depends npon some general equitable
rule, independent of tbe existence ot frud.
i of anv rnle of equity which forbids a
trustee to purchase from bis cetu trum, provided tne
transaction be iree irom irauu. unuu., n tun dim ui
within eii ber of the above classes, it must be within the
first. If there be a trust, it is a trust ex vtatrjiritt.
In Cbekterneia vs. oanBen, a v u, " imruwicaa
divided cases ot fraud which would void a constructive
trust into four classes, as follows :
1. rrauu arising imiu iwpoBibiuu.
2. Fraud apparent from intrinsio value.
j Fraud which may be presumed trom the Circum
stances ot tbe contracting parties ; and
4. Jr raud coliectea irom lus cirumiuuo. , ,m maus
action, as being an imposition on third parties.
It is manifest that tbe facta set oat in the petition,
which for tbe purposes of this esse we mast aa-miue to be
true bring the oee within the drat and third of tne above
stated classes. It is a trust arising by implication, oat
ot the circumstance! alleged in tn petition, ana
ia not a trust existing or arising nnder a will, or out of any
nioceedingsin the Orphana' or Hea-ster s uourt.
It must be remembered that this is not a proceeding
against ihe estate of James punoaa. That estate baa no
interest in tbia controversy, and cannot make nor lose by
ny judgiueut of this court thereon, unless indeed we sus
pend the proceedings belore the aaJitor. ana thus tie up
the large fund in tbe hands ef theexeoutjra' pending this
litiaation. This ia merely a content between a dutnuutee
andapeiaontowbomhehaa eold his interest, lae sale
i..- vl,mir act. auggeated originally
I,. himself, and whether or not . he baa
made a bad bargain merely, or haa been over
reached in the transaction, cannot possibly atfeot tbe
estate of James Dundas or interest the other distribu
tees who are waiting for their money. Toe business of
i.u riitritmta the estate. In this be is but
tbe agent or tbe organ of the court. The position ot tbe
petitioner is that oi one who at one time had an interest,
but who nss parteo wan ii oy sou mi ..iui. tuuu
ratiou. While that deed remains in full force tbe peti
tioner bas no standing before tbe auditor, lie has no fur
ther interest in the estate of Jaiuea Duudaa. iue audi
tor baa n opower to cancel tbe deed and decree a reuon

limited statutory jurisdiction. The relief prayed for here
can only be granted by a judge sitting as a unanceiior,

If we treat this caja aa tbit of a trustee purchasing
from his ctttui uue trust, it still does not altect the estate.
It is not like the ease referred to by Judge Agnew in
ti..m a.l nf m. imruUHa bv a trustee at ilia own
aaleot the trust propny. There the estate is directly
sheet sd and gains or loses, according aa tne pnes paid by

tbe latter case until the transaction is shown to be tainted
with fraud, legal or equitable, and tbon the trust arises not
under a bill, bat, as before stated, ia implied from tbe
nature of tbe circumstances wliich surround the transac
tion. Of auch a trust the Orphans' Court hat no juris
diction. V bile there is, perhaps, at before stated, no rale which
prohibits a trustee from purcuaniug ot bis crMui yus rl
in a case free trozn fraud, it is not too much to aay that a
court ot equity would scan such a transaction very closely,
particularly where tbe parlies. were not dividing upon
equal terms; s wbere the one waa in possession of inior
matioa not accessible to the othur, and lailod tu commu
nicate tbe earns; mum more so if thsre were any gr.iund
to believe there were any niisrepregiutution by tbe one, or
withholding of tacts wnicu tne otuer waa entitiea to
'"lu'tbs case of Coloa vs. Treootbiok, above cited.the Lord
Chancellor (Kldon) sys; "A trustee may buy from the

tract, ascertained to be suub after jealous and scrupulous
eiaiuinatii'd of all tbe circumstances, providing mt ih

Ine Orphans' Court cannot take eognizsnoe of snob a
transaction, merely because the subject matter thereof
happens to be a portion of a decedents' estate, In Wick
erotism's Appeal, XXVII Lial lnttlliffmerr, 842, Admit
12, 1M70, It wss held that one exeentor could not recover
on half of bia commissions from bis ce-exeontor in the
Orphans' Court. Mrs, Lippincott did not buy of the
trustee. Rhe bought ef a distributee, and merely stands
in the position of tbe distributee from whom she pur
chased. 1 do not wish to be understood as expressing any
opinion as to the jurisdict ion of t he Orphans' Court in
esses of tbe trsnsferof a distributive share of an estate
by parol, or by instrument not nnder s 'al. We confine this
decision to the rase before ns, vir.., tbe transfer nf snch
interest by a solemn instrument under seal, and for a
While we do not think we have Jurisdiction to entertain
the present application, and to grant tbe relief prayed for,
we are not entirely powerless in the premises. We can
reach the snbstantiM justice of this ease by impounding
the sbare of Mr. Dnndas' estate in controversy, and direct
ing tbe executors to hold it properly Invested until the pe
titioner can be beard in a court of equity. Having our
grasp npon the fund.we will hold Ituntil the question now
raised can be decided in tbe appropriate tribunal.
With this qualification we sustain the demurrer and
dismiss the petition.
