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 fulfilment of their wishes, and tu avoid the risk consequent on the appointment of private persons as executors, who hot tinfrequently, though earnestly desirous of acting for the benefit of parties interested, fail to carry out legally the objects fop which they were appointed, and consequently involve themselves ' and those whose interests they are striving to protect in costly and harassing litigation. 3. The administration of all estates of which no disposition has been made by will, whenever relatives do not wish to in- - cur the responsibility of administration, op' cannot from any cause obtain the neces- ' sary powers to act. In such cases, it is the duty of the Public Trustee to discharge all legal debts so far as the assets extend, an'd divide the residue amongst the next 'of kin. 4.
