V, R mHE PUBLIC TRUST OFFICE. GUARANTEED BY THE STATE. Although this office has been in exis tence for a period of more than seven years, it is believed that the objects for b which it was established are not sufficiently understood. It is desired to set forth in a concise form information respecting the business which this office undertakes : 1. The charge of all kinds of money trusts, 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 dispute, or whose legal owner is unknown or cannot be found, &c., &c. ! , 2. The administration of the wills o persons who by appointing the Public Trustee as their executor secure the guarantee of the State for the due fulfilment of their wishes, and to avoid the risk consequent on the appointment f firivate persons as executors, who not unrequently, though earnestly desirous of acting for the benefit of parties interested, fail to carry out legally the objects for ■b which they were appointed, and consequently involve themselves and those whose interests they are striving to pror,e tect in costly and harassing litigation. 8 ' 3. The administration of all estates of w w hich no disposition has been made by 5r will, whenever relatives do not wish to in- -- cur the responsibility of administration, or cannot from any cause obtain the necesaary powers to act. In such cases it is the | ’ duty of the Public Trustee to discharge t all legal debts so far as the assets extend, y and divide the residue amongst the next of kin. > 4. The administration of the estates of is lunatics, lunatic patients, and convicts, w 5- The charge of all lands lying waste a f and unoccupied of which the owner is unrt known, or who has been absent from the lc’ colony for ten years, having left nc 3, known agent. j; The Cost of administering estates is very i i small.
