I "THE LAWS DELAY." I Had "Jarndyce v. Jarndyce" lasted a hundred years, says the "Law Journal," when it came to a premature end because all the pro- perty in dispute had been eaten up in costs, Dickens does not say. But he tells us, while it is still alive, that fair wards of Court have faded into mothers and grandmothers, and the little plaintift or defendant who was promised a new rocking-horse when it should be settled had grown up, possessed himself of a real horse, and trotted into the other world. This may seem the language of exaggeration. Yet there is, at the present moment, a veritable centenarian among Chancery causes, which was before the Court of Appeal last week. It arose out of the will of one Antonio de Souza of Madras, who died in 1797, and the question to be decided was whether some great-grandchildren of the testator or certain charities were entitled to a fund in Court.
