The plaintiff claimed to have the testator's estate administered, partly contingent, an allowance in excess of the sum which the testator had and the trusts of his will carried into execution under the direction directed to be paid for the purpose. The question was also raised whether the of the court, and, for that purpose to have all necessary accounts court had jurisdiction to make such an order on summons. The testator gave taken and inquiries made ; to have an account taken of all moneys come to the the residue of his estate to trustees, on trust out of the income to pay an hands of the solicitors on account of the estate; and to have the bill of annuity of £220 to bis wife, and then to pay to his daughter the yearly sum costs taxed under the direction of the court. The solicitors put in a demurrer, of £100 for each of his two graodchildren, Arthur and Emily (the children of and the demurrer was allowed by the Vice-Chancellor of the Lancaster the daughter by a former husband), as regarded Arthur so long as he should Chancery Court (Mr. Bristowe, Q.C.), on the ground that the case was be under the age of twenty-five, and as regarded Emily so long as she should governed by the decision of Lord Romilly, M.R., in Maw v.

But in that case residue, and on further trust to invest the sum of £3,000 and pay the income one of the defendants to the suit had entered into an agreement with the thereof to the testator's daughter for her life, and on her death the trustees plaintiff's solicitor to satisfy the plaintiff's claim, and to pay the costs of the were to stand possessed of the £3,000 on trust for such person or persons as« suit as between solicitor and client.

And the testator gave the residue of his trust estate on trust Were the solicitors then liable to the plaintiff in any other character than as for his daughter and her children, Arthur and Emily, in equal sbares, the solicitors ? The principle on which agents could be made parties to a suit as shares of the two grandchildren to be paid to them on their respectively constructive trustees wes well defined by Lord Selborne in the case of Barnes attaining twenty-one. By a codicil ihe testator revoked the legacy of £3,000 v. Addy (22 W. R. 505, L. R. 9 Ch. 244, 251) thus : that “strangers are not to his son T., and bequeathed to him in lieu thereof a rum of £500, to be paid to be made constructive trustees merely because they act as the agents of to him as soon as possible after the testator's death. After the death of the trustees in transactions within their legal powers, transactions, perhaps, of testator an order was made by Fry, J., appointing the mother of the two which a court of equity may disapprove, unless those agents receive and grandchildren and her second husband their guardians during their become chargeable with some part of the trust property, or unless they assist respective minorities, and it was ordered that the two sums of £100 should be with knowledge in a dishonest and fraudulent design on the part of the paid to the guardians. A summons was afterwards taken out in the name of trustees.". His lordship could see nothing in the allegations in the present the infants, by their step-father as their next friend, asking that the further case which justified making the solicitors parties to the action as constrnctive sum of £150 per annum might be allowed for the maintenance and education trustees. There was no ground for giving leave to amend the statement of of the grandson Arthur, and the further sum of £120 per annum for the mainclaim. Even if there was jurisdiction to tax a solicitor's bill in an action by a tenance and education of the granddaughter Emily, during their respective third party, it was not right to adopt the more expensive remedy justead of minorities, or until further order, and the then increased allowances might be proceeding in a summary way under the Solicitors Act. LINDLEY, L.J., was paid by the trustees to the guardians out of the income of the of the same opinion. Prima facie an agent, whether he was a solicitor or not, fund set apart to meet the two legacies of £10,000 each.

No such case was made out here. It was alleged | The only near relations of the infants on the mother's side living were their that the solicitors bad retained the amount of a bill of costs in which there grandmother, the testator's widow, who was aged seventy-seven ; their mother were overcharges, and the question was whether the cestui que trust could and their maternal uncle, the testator's son T. These all, so far as they bring an action against he trustees and the solicitors. Vincent v. Venner did could, consented to the application, except the maternal uncle, who was not go so far as that. There there was an agreement “ by a third party" to absent abroad.

That decision might be quite right, but trustees out of the income of the estate. The order contained a recital that it did not govern the present case.
