MILLIONS EATEN UP.
How Vast KstiUos Vanish lu
New York Journal : "Ah ! how many
arc rioting on dead men's millions ! ' '
This was , the exclamation of a con
servative lawyer of prominence in
speaking of the management of largo
estates which the machinery of the
courts is invoked to bettlo.
Behind the names of Slovens , Stokes ,
Cutting , Stewart , Anderson. Ilamors-
lofy , .Itimel , Colah. Iloyt. Wood , Souttcr.
Tilden , Oilman , Paine , Lenox and Shel
don Ho recitals of morp entrancing in
terest and of btrange situations than any
portrayed by the novelist.
Property valued at tons of millions of
dollars is at present in litigation in the
surrogate court. Lawyers will not
openly acknowledge that they desire to
1 > rolong this legal btrifo , but that this
purpobo is close at their hearts is well
known. The estate pays the oxpcnoes
of litigation , and while anything is left
the conbcicntioiiB attorney finds that it
is necessary to make homo further move
"in tlio intercbt of bis client. "
It is the old btory of dividing the oys
ter each litigant takes a bbell and the
lawyer takes the meat. When a man
dies , leaving his heirs $100,000 to fight
over , the proper divihion of the cbtato
according to the legal coiibcience is al
most as follows : Legal fees and costs ,
$00X)0 ( ) ; disbursements and ineidontals ,
$7.000 ; heirs , 1,000.
The heirs arc not always as fortunate
ns this extreme oa&e would indicate.
Facts from the record will bhow this :
An Oriental merchant , who rejoiced
in tin * picturesque name of Domanjoo
Byranjeo Colah , visited in this city
eighteen years ago. IIo wont on a spree
and got locked up in a coll. The polieo
found $10,000 in paper money and golden
on his person , and an examination of
his room in the IIolTman house bhowod
that bo had an ndditiodal $ ( iO)00 ( ) there.
IIo was a btrangor in a strange land ,
and fair game for the lawyers. They
charged that the Parsee merchant was
a lunatic , and that it was ncccbsary to
appoint a committee to take charge of
himself and his monoy. Nathaniel
Tarvis , jr. , who ib a lawyer in addition
to being elork of tlio court of common
picas , was the man who got the 8100,000
in charge , The Parsee was sent to
Bombay , where ho died , at a cost of
8&5.000. Mr. .Tarvis reported to the
court that the balance ho had on hand
was exactly & 3U.OH ,
Samuel Wood , after whom the town
of Woodbburg , L , I. , is named , died in
IhTH , leaving a fortune estimated at
$2,000,000. By specific bequests lie loft
$231,000 , to relatives , and the balance
was to bo expended in founding a college -
lego of iiuihiu. The college will novnr
bo founded , for two good reasons the
hequcbt lias boon declared illegal and
tlio money has boon cnton up by ex
penses. Tlio little item of $1,100,000 of
the estate has vanished. Eight differ
ent attorneys and as many eminent
counsel have been operating on the eb-
tate "in the interest of the college of
music" for ton years past , and this faet
tollb the story.
Jcbbo Jloyt , tl.o famous produce mer
chant of this city , died in 1882 , leaving

ing life , and tlio biuno sum to his eccen
tric daughter , Mary Ireno. They were
dissatisfied and half a dozen lawyers
