High Court to set aside the order of the lower Court, on the ground
that that Court had no jurisdiction to entertain an application for

was just and reasonable cause for the delay, the High Court refused
to interfere.

SUBSISTENCE-MONEY-Discharge-Act VIII of 1859, ss. 276,

278.] A prisoner was arrested on August 4th, and committed to
prison on the evening of the same day. Before his committal, the
execution-creditor paid into the hands of the jailor a sum sufficient
for his subsistence-money for 27 days, at the established rate of 4
annas per day. On the 5th August, a writ of habeas corpus was
applied for to bring the prisoner up; and on the 6th, a further sum
of 4 annas was paid to the jailor to cover any deficiency in the
former payment.

Held, that the requirements of section 276, Act VIII of 1859,
had not been fulfilled, and that the prisoner was entitled to his dis-
charge under section 278.

VALUATION OF SUIT-Act XXVI of 1867, Schedule B, Article

11, Note A-Act XVI of 1868, s. 16.] On a dispute arising as to
the proper valuation of a suit, the Court may, on the application of
either party, issue a commission, and make an enquiry into the
market value, or the net profits of the property in dispute. The
final decision as to the proper valuation is vested in the Court which
hears the suit.

When the defendant asserts that a suit is over-valued, the onus
of proving the truth of his assertion lies on him.

WILL-Domicile-Rules for Interpretation—" Children"-Accretions

to Property from Rents.] Where a testator has an ascertained
domicile, the construction of his will must depend on the law of
that domicile ; but if no particular law is applicable, the will is to
be interpreted by principles of natural justice.

In such cases, in applying the rules of Hindu, Mahomedan, or
English law to the wills of Hindus, Mahomedans, or East Indian
Christians, respectively, their particular habits and modes of life
may be looked to as a guide to the interpretation.

From the context of the will and surrounding circumstances,
"children" may be interpreted as illegitimate children.

Where by will the income of estates was left to devisees for life,
with a gift over of the corpus on their death, and a portion of the
income instead of being divided among the tenants-for-life was ap-
plied to the purchase of other estates, heli, these estates did not
pass to the remaindermen, but formed the absolute property of the
tenants-for-life, and passed to their devisees.
MUSSAMAT FANNY BARLOW o. Sophia EVELINE ORDE

Void Bequest-Uncertainty-Superstitious Uses.] N. E. J.,
a Hebrew merchant, domiciled in Calcutta, and possessed of both
real and personal property, died, leaving a will, by which, after ap-
pointing his mother, K. E. J., and his brother, J. E. J., executrix
and executor thereof, and making various bequests and provisions,
he made the following bequest of the residue of the property :-

“ And what may remain after payment of the above-mentioned

sums, as well as the debts, shall remain under the control of my
“ brothers, S. E. J. and J. E. J., for the purpose of defraying there-
“ with the expenses for the year, and making charitable distributions
* as commanded, and giving alms for my spiritual benefit according
“ to their judgment." Held, assuming that the High Court should
act in conformity with the English Court of Chancery in carrying
out charitable bequests, that as far as the beqnest related to giving
of alms for the testator's spiritual benefit, it was void for uncertain.
ty. The “ defraying expenses and making charitable distribution"
were limited by the bequest to the year within which the testator
died.
