TWELVE YEARS OF LITIGATION. mS5; JENNER AND THEWENNOE CASTLE ESTATE. JENNBR V. THOMAS AND ANOTHER.—OA Tues- day, in the Court of Appeal, con-sisting of the Master of the Rolls and Lords Justices Bowen and Kay, Miss Jenner, who claims to he entitled to the Wenvoe Castle Estate, near Cardiff, appeared in person to appeal from a judgment of Mr. Justice iLawrance at trial without a jury.—Miss Jenner ceplained that she alleged that the defen- dants had maliciously issued execution against iher goods upon a document which she ST- ™ver, si^ed, and she contended •asftt ths litigation, which had been pro- ceeding against her during the last 12 years ^as dictated by malice. The defendants, she afceged, had brought absolute run upon her in fche interest of money lenders and* defendant Thomas, who vas a butcher, admitted that he I was ta tool in sheir hands—The Master of the iMEa. But you did not establish malice against tfee butcher at the trial? (Laughter.)—Miss Jeaier said that the whole proceedings against ber .were outcome of fraud.-Lord Justice Kay But;the defendant Thomas in this case had got judgment against you for costs, and he was en- titled to issue tiiat execution. — Lord Justice Bowen: How do you establish malice ?-Miss Jenner said the execution and the bankruptcy pro- ceedings token agaisist her showed malice, and she submitted those steps were taken in order to ruin hat'-—The Master of the Rolls You did not estaoiisk that before Jfj. Justice Lawrance.—Mies Jenner He did not bear the evidence. He re- fused to kave the probate of my father's will put in. -Mr. Jsetice Kay; Aad he was right. The probate of your father's will had nothing to do with this action against Thomas.-Miss Jenner said there were still proceedings in Chancery going on, aeri it was very hard that she should be ruined and lett without anything in the world.- The Master of ^he Rolls said the court had allowed her a latitude tfiat they would refuse to a counsel, but they did so account of her being a lady and from a kno\vleo^e of the family to which she belonged. But 1* doing so they were, he felt denying justice to other people, and to encourage o £ r \U these actions would become an oppression. wn £ ca8e'^nd ter appeal must be dismissed. She had brought a cumber of actions, and then, when she fculed, she refused to pay the costs. The court must discourage suck a state of things — Miss Jenner «aid she felt a high moral responsi- bility in this matter, because she was supported by the public and eminent persons in South Wales She was sure the court did not desire to do heran injustice, and she had^to say that already she had paid as much as £ 700 in taxes and costs The »i>peal was tben diSajriawd, wfth oosta.
