An Act of great public advantage, one which originated with tho Unionist Government, and duo mainly to the persistence of the Unionist member for Sheffield, Sir Howard Vincent, camo into operation on the let January. It will bo useful to many owners of email estates, because it gets over the difficulty of finding a trustee for one's property. The Public Trustee Act, 1906, establishes a public trustee whom anybody can have as trustee, an official who never dies, and whose guarantee is the British Government, with its funds. The Public Trustee may act in tho administration of estates of smaii value; as a custodian trustee (that is, take charge of securities); an an ordinary trustee, or be appointed by the court a judicial trustee. He can act as a solo trustee, or jointly with other trustees, but ho may not, except for a short time, carry on a trading business for an estate. Any persons may appoint the Public Trustee, by their will or settlements, either to be the sole trustee or one of the trustees, and. if desired, he may be appointed an additional or new trustee in any matter, by the person able to make the appointment, as if the Public Trustee were a private trustee. Where the Public Trustee is appointed by anyone to be hit trustee, the latter may empioy the family solicitor, so that there need not be any change of f.-olicitors, if the person appointing docs not wish. Power of having accounts kept and audited is given by this Act, so that everj beneficiary can at once tell or see how the estate stands. The Lord Chancellor has drawn up short rules, the fees are small, and the fact that the Trustee never dies, and eo tho cost of transferring securities, etc., is avoided, is a great saving to truste. The Public Trustee is Mr. C. J. Stewart, 314, Clements Inn, W.C. London, who will answer any inquiries. t.
