BANKS, DANIEL B. An opinion has been filed by Judge Dennis, in the Circuit Court, of Baltimore, construing the will of Daniel B. Banks, who died January 20, 1875, leaving an estate valued at abut $500,000. The question before the court was as to the operation of the proviso in the will as to the share of Frank Godwin, grandson of the testator, who died under the age of twenty-one years. Judge Dennis holds that the proviso is good, and that the share of the grandson was diverted by his death to the heirs of Daniel B. Banks. The court also holds that the interest of Andrew Banks, son of the testator, in the share of Frank Godwin did not pass to the trustee in insolvency of Andrew Banks. The case will be taken to the Court of Appeals. Mr. Banks owned valuable property both in Baltimore county and city. The Baltimore County Democrat, December 25, 1897

BEIDEMAN, EMMA FRANCES A habeas corpus case was tried before judge Fowler on Saturday last involving the right of custody of Emma Frances Beideman, aged about 14 years. The child's parents died about four years ago and she was taken in charge by her mother's sister, Mrs. Mary E. Randall, of Waverly. About two months ago the child went on a visit to another aunt, Mrs. Martha A. Snowden, sister of Mrs. Randall, who resides near Greenwood, in the 11th district of this county. While there she wrote to her aunt, Mrs. Randall, that she would not return. According to her evidence, Mrs. Randall sent her son, Frank Randall, for her, who when informed by Emma that she would not return, attempted to take her by force. Failing in that he beat her severely and she was laid up in bed for several days. The writ was issued at the instance of Mrs. Randall and directed to Mrs. Snowden. After hearing the testimony on both sides the court directed that the child remain in the custody of Mrs. Snowden until after the indictment, which has already been found against Frank Randall, for assault, is disposed of. Mr. Eugene Burton represented the petitioner and Mr. A. A. Piper the respondents. Since the habeas corpus proceedings, Mr. Piper has been appointed guardian of the child by the Orphans' Court.

He bequeaths the home place, containing four acres and improvements, and the use of the spring on the Landon House property, to his wife, Mary A. E. Cockey, during her life. The will provides that if the wife of the testator should move from the home place, the property is to be rented by the trustee for her benefit, and if she and the trustee jointly decide to sell the property, he is authorized to do so and reinvest the proceeds and pay her the revenue. After the death of Mrs. Cockey, the home place is to become the property for life of the testator’s daughter, Mrs. Laura B. Talbott, the wife of Hon. J. Fred C. Talbott. After the death of the testator’s daughter the property is to merge into the rest of the estate. To his grandson, George B. Cockey, the testator bequeathes his gold watch, and to his daughter, Lara B. Talbott, all the balance of the estate, for the following purposes: the net rents, issues and income is to be used by Mrs. Cockey, wife of the testator, during her life, and after her death by Mrs. Talbott during her life.

Upon the death of Mr. and Mrs. Talbott the income of one equal share is to be divided among their children, if they have any. The other equal share is to be enjoyed by Maggie W. Cockey during her life, and after her death by the children of George B. Cockey, the deceased son of the testator. In the event of the death of either of the children leaving a child or children him or her surviving, the child or children of such one so dying shall take the part to which the parent would have been entitled, and in the event of the death of either without leaving a child him or her surviving, the whole of said one share of the net income shall go to the survivors. The whole estate is to remain in trust during the life of the wife of the testator, during the life of Mr. and Mrs. J. F. C. Talbott, of Maggie W. Cockey, and of the survivors of them.

Then it shall cease, and the entire estate shall be divided among the grandchildren then living, and if any be dead at that time leaving child or children him or her surviving, said child or children of such grandchild so dying shall take the part to which the parent would have been entitled. The testator confers upon the trustee, Laura B. Talbott, and her successor in the trust, full power to invest any money coming into her or their hands and to sell or lease any portion or all of the estate for any of the purposes under the will.

FITCH, JOHN The trial of the case of John E. and Estella Lautenklos against Rebecca Fitch and B.F.

Councilman, testified that they did not consider him competent.

GILMOR, JOSEPHINE A. On Wednesday last Judge Burke filed an opinion in the case of ex-Judge Robert Gilmor against Albert Gilmor and others in which he overrules the exception filed to the sale of the land made to E. F. Abell. The opinion is a very elaborate one and its author construed fully the last will of Mrs. Josephine a. Gilmor, wife of Judge Gilmor. The contention was raised, and it was the main point in the case, that this will did not pass real estate because the words used related solely to the personalty.
The testatrix directed that her personalty and all the residue of her estate should go to Robert Gilmor for life, the remainder to her children. This was, it was contended, to general a direction, coupled as it was with the bequest of the personalty, to mean anything else than the personalty. The court, however, did not entertain this view, but after suggesting the danger of relying on apparently similar cases in the constructions of wills, announced as the paramount rule that the intention of the testatrix, if it could be ascertained, should govern, and that this intention was that the real estate as well as ther personal should pass to her husband for his life.
The property was sold to E. F. Abell for $14,162.50 by Judge Gilmor, appointed a trustee by order of court, and to this sale exceptions were filed.
Messrs. Venable, Baetjer & Howard appeared for the exceptant, and Judge Gilmore appeared for himself as trustee.

Winans, in the 13th District, whose death was mentioned in the Journal as having occurred on the 12 ult. at Houston, Texas, is said to have left an immense estate behind which will no doubt cause serious litigation, as the following extract from the Baltimore American will show. "The deceased bought the Gephardt property of 60 acres and laid it out in lots which were sold on most advantageous terms. The town was built up, a Post Office established, with Mr. Geo. M. Ruhl as Postmaster: a drug-store, several doctors, an Episcopal Church; of which Rev. D.C. Loop is rector, a colored Methodist church, of which Rev. Nelson Butler is pastor, and a colored Baptist church, of which Rev. Richard Johnson is pastor, and a chapel, a branch of Sharp Street M.E. Church. The deceased is reported to have left an estate worth about $3,000,000. His property is in Texas, around Chicago, and in Baltimore city and county. He also leaves an estate at Whitehall, on the Frederick road, and a tract of land near Pimlico, Baltimore county, and real estate in the neighborhood of Greenmount. Mr. Charles W. Hull, the nephew, in company with Mr. Everett Shelton, of Hulltown, went to Chicago and attended the funeral. The remains had been taken to that city from Texas, and were buried in the Oak Hill Cemetery on Wednesday 20th ult. Mr. Shelton returned from Chicago on Friday. He says after Mr. Hull's death seventeen deeds of property were found in several states, in Baltimore and Baltimore county, of which, with the exception of the Baltimore property, he willed to his housekeeper, Miss Helen Culver, who kept house for him for nearly forty years. The will was probated at Chicago last week, and the heirs to the immense estate were given twenty days by the Chicago court to enter their protest against the will. This they have done. Lawyers Paterson and W. C. Hull, of Chicago, are counsel for the heirs. Miss Culver also has counsel. The will was made October 1st, 1881. The will of Mr. Hull was filed for probate in the Office of Benj. W. Ady, Register of Wills at Towson on Monday 25th ult. The document, which is brief, is as follows:
I Charles J. Hull, of Chicago, Illinois, do hereby make this my last will and testament. I do give, devise and bequeath to Miss Helen Culver, of Chicago, Illinois, all my estate and all my property, real and personal and mixed, wherever it may be found, of whatever kind or nature, to her, her heirs, executors, administrators and assigns forever. I do appoint the said Helen Culver to be the executrix of this will and testament, and direct that she be not required to give the usual bond. Witness my hand and seal this 21st day of October, 1881.

The object of this is to prove that the money deposited in the bank by Michael Murphy was intended for the benefit of Ann Murphy after his death. The matter will be heard by the court on March 13th. Col. Milton W. Offutt, Alfred Shriver and Harry M. Benzinger represented the bank and Mr. Reed. The administrators and heirs of Michael Murphy are represented by Messrs. J. J. Lindsay and John S.

MURPHY, ANN & MICHAEL The Judges of the Orphans' Court held a special session Monday to hear the Murphy case. John Lacey, brother of the late Ann Murphy, filed a petition, setting forth that his sister died on December 30th 1893; that a paper said to be her will was filed in December, 1894, and admitted to probate. By this will Bernard C. Reed was made executor and residuary legatee, and letters testamentary were granted to him. Subsequently a caveat to the will was filed, and the issues were sent to the Circuit Court for trial. The case was removed by Mr. Reed to Harford county, where it is now pending. On January 30th, 1895, letters of administration on th estate of Michael Murphy were granted to John Murphy and James Kelley, who claim that all the property left by Ann Murphy belongs to Michael Murphy's estate. Mr. Lacey charges that Mr. Reed has not properly managed the estate, and should be removed as executor. The court is asked to revoke the letters testamentary, and to order the taking out of letters of administration pendente lite. John T. Ensor & Son and James J. Lindsay were counsel for Mr. Lacey. Mr. Reed was represented by Col. Milton W. Offutt, and the Metropolitan Savings Bank by Harry F. Benzinger. Mr. Reed filed an answer, denying the charges in Mr. Lacey's petition and asking for a full investigation. The Baltimore County Democrat March, 16, 1895

MURPHY, MICHAEL the estate of Michael Murphy, who died at Govanstown in 18(looks like 88), seems to be in somewhat mixed condition. Mr. Murphy, when he died, left a widow, Mrs. Ann Murphy. At the time of his death he had several thousand dollars deposited in the Metropolitan Savings Bank, payable to himself, or to his wife on demand. After the death of Mr. Murphy the money was transferred to his wife's name. She died in December, 18??, leaving a will, in which Bernard C. Reed, of Govanstown, was made executor and residuary legatee. A caveat to the will was filed by John Lacey, of Waverly, a brother of Ann Murphy, to contest its validity. The issues in the case were sent by the Orphans' Court to the Circuit Court for trial. Mr. Reed has removed the case to the Circuit Court for Harford county. No letters have been taken out on the estate of Michael Murphy until Wedesday, when the Orphans' Court of this county granted letters of administration to James Kelley, of Towsontown, and John Murphy, of Darlington, Harford county, a brother of the deceased. The administrators claim that all the money deposited in the bank in Mr. Murphy's name, which was on deposit at the time of his death, together with all the accrued dividends, belonging to the estate.
Mr. C. C. Shriver, president of the Metropolitan Savings Bank of Baltimore city, was somewhat surprised Wednesday by a demand made upon the bank for several thousand dollars, which the bank officials contend they are not required to pay. The demand was made by Mr. James Kelley, who was accompanied b his counsel, James J. Lindsay. Mr. Lindsay says he will docket suit against the bank for the amount claimed in this suit a question will be involved which is of much interest to depositors in savings banks. When the demand was made Wednesday President Schriver said that all the money deposited in the bank to the credit of Michael Murphy and wife had been drawn out by Mrs. Murphy after the death of her husband, or by Mr. Reed, her executor, after death. The administrators claim that the bank had no right to pay the money to either Mrs. Murphy or Reed. The amount claimed is about $3,300. The heirs are John Murphy, Mrs. Ellen Doyle, Mrs. Elizabeth Bryan and Owen J. Murphy. Messrs. James J. Lindsay and John S. Ensor are the counsel of the administrators. The Fidelity and Deposit Company are Mr. Reed's surety.

REESE, THOMAS L. In the equity case of Cornelia S. Reese and Benjamin Kurtz, administrators of Thomas L. Reese, against George H.

The plaintiffs are creditor of Henry Reese in the sum of $7,407.06, and seek satisfaction of their debt by a sale of the Lakeside estate at Lakewood station, Baltimore county. They charge that an absolute deed of the property by Mr. Reese in 1875 to the late Samuel Miller, of Alexandria, VA., made upon the stated consideration of $10,000, was in fact a mortgage for $7,000, and that both this deed and the reconveyance ten years later by Mr. Miller’s executor to Mrs. Reese were for simulated consideration and in fraud of the rights of Mr. Reese’s creditors. Messrs. Price & Steuart, solicitors for Mr. And Mrs. Reese, deny in the answer to the bill all charges of fraud, and allege that since the failure of Mr. Reese’s firm in 1876 and the release from the copartnership creditors, in which Thomas L. Reese himself united. Henry Reese has always been able to pay and has paid all of his debts in full. Mr. Sargeant’s answer is signed by Messrs. Schmucker & Whitelock and Randolph M. Isaac, solicitors, who are counsel for the company which insured the title. It avers that Mr. Sargeant relied entirely upon the public records for evidence of the true nature of the title, and having had no knowledge of the matters outside of the records which are set up in the bill, cannot be prejudiced by them.

STANSBURY, THOMAS Pro Forma decree as to the Stansbury wills. On the 17th inst. Ex-Judge Yellott and Mr. W. Frank Mitchell, as counsel for Mrs. Eudocia Stansbury, filed a bill in the Circuit Court for Baltimore County asking for the construction of a clause in the will of Thomas Stansbury, deceased. The case was docketed under the title of Eudocia Stansbury, widow, plaintiff, vs. John Hubner, Joseph M. Cone, Eben B. Hunting and Frederick Rice, defendants. The bill then states that Thomas Stansbury, by his will dated November, 1816, left to his grandson, Thomas Stansbury, the husband of the plaintiff and the “heirs of his body so long as they held and till the same” certain lands in Baltimore county, including the parcel of land sold by Mrs. Eudocia Stansbury to the defendants, Hubner and others. The devise was as follows: “I give and bequeath to Deborah Stansbury and Anna Powell, my daughters, all that tract of land whereon I now live called “Daniel’s Gift” together with “Carr’s Lot” and “Tracy’s Park”, during their natural life, and at their decease the then tracts of land above mentioned I will and give to my grandson, Thomas Stansbury, son of my son John, excepting the part hereafter bequeathed to him and the heirs of his body so long as thy hold and till the same. Should he die without heirs of his body, my will and desire is that my grandson, Thomas Taylor, should have it, him, his heirs forever; and if Thomas should die without an heir then the aforementioned land to fall unto my grandson, James Taylor, to him, his heirs and assigns forever.” On August 14th, 1817, said Deborah Stansbury and John Powell and An Powell, his wife, and Thomas Stansbury, son of John, executed and delivered to a certain Elizabeth Edwards a deed in fee of all the land which was devised as aforesaid to the said grantors by the will of Thoas Stansbury, mentioned in the preceding paragraph; and the same land was on the same day conveyed by the party named to Deborah Stansbury and Ann Powell for life, with remainder to Thomas Stansbury; that the said Ann Powell and Deborah Stansbury are dead; that Thomas Stansbury, the husband of the plaintiff, died in 1857 leaving an heir who also died; that Thomas Stansbury by a will of date March 31st, 1856, left all his property to his widow, Eudocia Stansbury, and she has held possession ever since. On June 16th, 1864, Eudocia Stansbury made a mortgage upon the above lands; that on May 28th, 1890, the plaintiff contracted in writing to sell to John Hubner, Joseph M. Cone, Eben B. Hunting and Frederick Rice in fee, free from incumbrances, at and for the sum of $150 per acre the lot of land being part of the land devised as set forth by the wills of Thomas Stansbury, the elder, and Thomas Stansbury, the younger, situate in Baltimore county. Doubts have arisen as to the true operation and effect of words “so long as thy hold and till the same,” used in the will of Thomas Stansbury, the elder, in the device of the lands in question to his grandson, Thomas Stansbury, the younger, under whom the plaintiff claims title, and this case is brought for the purpose of procuring a judicial construction thereof. And if the Court shall be of the opinion that the plaintiff claiming title in the manner herein set forth owns and can convey a fee simple title in and to the said land, then the defendants are ready and willing as soon as the plaintiff had paid off and procured to be released the mortgage given. But if the Court shall be of the opinion that the plaintiff claiming title to the lands in question in the manner herein set forth cannot convey the same by a clear fee simple title to the defendants, then the plaintiff is willing that a decree be passed in the case dismissing her bill and releasing the defendants from their said contract of purchase of the lands. Copies of the wills of Thomas Stansbury, Sr. and Jr., were filed in the case. The decree passed by Judges Fowler and Burke in the case is as follows: “It is ordered and decreed fro forma that the bill of the plaintiff in the above entitled cause be and the same is hereby dismissed, and that the defendants be and they are hereby released from their contract of purchase of the lands from the plaintiff in the proceedings mentioned, and it is further ordered and decreed that the cost in this case be paid one half by the plaintiff and one half by the defendants.” An appeal was taken from the decision above given and the case will be carried to the Court of Appeals at Annapolis. Messrs. Schmucker and Whitelock appeared as counsel for Messrs. Hubner, Cone, and others. Maryland Journal, 20 Sept 1890

The property afterwards mortgaged for $3,000 by R. B. Taggart, in which, it is claimed, he held only a life estate. Mr. Pierpont a short time ago sold the property under foreclosure of mortgage of $600, which was given by Hazeltine Taggart.

WEBSTER, LEE On Saturday last, in the Circuit Court at Towson, Judges Fowler and Burke signed an opinion in the case of Lee Webster against William T. Lee et al. The matter at issue was a petition filed by James C. Dennis, administrator d. b. n. c. t. a., of Lee Webster, deceased, asking that Richard S. Albert, trustee, be required to account for an alleged balance due to estate of his decedent. The court dismissed the petition. The facts in the case were set out at length by the court, and are somewhat involved.
Briefly, they are that William Webster died owning, with other property, a five-sixth interest in Mount Repose farm, near Cockeysville. One-fourth of his whole estate he left to William T. Lee, in trust for Margaret L. Webster, his wife, and Lee Webster, his son. Lee failed to qualify and Albert was appointed a trustee in his place. Robert Henderson was his executor. He sold Mount Repose to Lee Webster for $10,833.33. Albert received as one-fourth of the estate $6,427.47, all of which was invested in mortgages on Mount Repose. Lee Webster owed his mother, besides this to the trustee, $10,000. Mrs. Webster also borrowed $1,500 and assigned one of her mortgages as security for it, and gave this sum also to Lee. The property was again sold, and this time bought by Mrs. Webster for $11,000, the purchase price being applied to the trust mortgages and to the payment of her own. The trust money was again invested in mortgages on this property subject to a loan of $3,500 made by Emanuel Herman. The mortgage to Herman was foreclosed and the property only brought enough to pay $2,023.76 on the mortgages held by the trustee.
The court held that the trustee should not be made to account for this. That as Lee Webster had died before his mother, and had made her his sole devisee, and she had enjoyed the money no substantial wrong had been done to anybody.

WHITEFORD, JOHN, SR. Caveat to a will. On the 28th ult. A caveat to the last will and testament of John Whiteford, Sr., deceased, of Chesnut Ridge, in the 8th District, was filed in the Orphans’ Court of Baltimore County by Hon. J. Fred C. Talbott and F. I. Duncan as counsel for the caveators. The allegations made in the caveat are that the testator was not of sound and disposing mind when he made the will. The deceased left his farm of 195 acres to his only son, and after his death it is to go to the nephew of the testator. The son cannot dispose of the land in any way, mortgage it or in any manner use it to his own advantage, except as to what is produced upon it, and he wants to get possession of it absolutely.

WORLEY, JOHN A. Judge Burke has filed an opinion in the case of John J. Dobler, trustee, under the will of John A. Worley, against Mary C. Worley and others. The suit was brought for the purpose of having the will of Mr. Worley construed, or to determine who is entitled to receive the residue of the estate now in the hands of the trustee, who, since the death of Mr. Worley, was elected a member of the Supreme Bench of Baltimore City. Judge Burke holds that the residue of the estate vests in the testator’s daughter, Mary Celinda Worley, and that his wife, Mrs. Johanna Worley, has no interest in it. In his opinion Judge Burke says in regard to the construction of the will:
“During the widowhood of his wife, Johanna Worley, she was to receive from the trustee the whole net income of the estate. In the event of her remarriage she was to receive only the house No. 2028 Madison avenue and $10,000, and the balance of the estate was to be held by the trustee for the use of any child or children of the testator left living at the time of his death.
Upon the death of the wife the same persons would take the residue of the estate as would take it in the event of her remarriage.
The testator left surviving him one child, Mary Celinda Worley, who is an infant and who is now living. The widow having renounced the provisions of the will, and having had her dower set apart for her, and having received from the executor of the estate of John A. Worley her share of the personality, must for the purpose of this case be considered as dead. And having in contemplation of law departed this life, I will decree that the entire estate of John A. Worley now in the hands of John J. Dobler, trustee, is vested in Mary Celinda Worley, the infant daughter of the testator, and that upon her attaining her majority it will be the duty of said trustee to transfer said estate of her absolutely.
The mother of the late Mr. Worley, whose estate he inherited, was a daughter of the late Edward Rider, Sr., and owned valuable property in the neighborhood of Sherwood, N. C. R. R.
