The charge of all kinds of moneytrusts, such as Marriage Settlements, moneys to be invested for the benefit of Minors, moneys bequeathed for charitable objects, moneys the title to which is in 1 dispute, or whose legal owner is unknown or cannot be found, &c., &c. 2. The administration of the wills of persons who by appointing the Public Trustee as their executor secure the guarantee of the State for the due fulfil- , ment of their wishes, and to avoid the ’ risk consequent on the appointment of private persons as executors, who not unfrequently, though earnestly desirous of 1 actingfor'tfae benefit of parties interested, fail to carry out legally the objects for I which they were appointed, and conse--1 quently involve themselves and those whose interests they are striving to pro-' - tect in costly and harassing litigation. 1 3. The administration pf all estates of 1 which no disposition has been made by ’ will, whenever relatives do not wish to incur the responsibility of administratiori, or cannot from any cause obtain the necea- . sary powers to act; In such cases it is the duly of the Public Trustee to- discharge 1 all jegal debts so far as the assets extend, arid divide the residue amongst the next of kip. 4.
