United Press Association'- Hy Rloctrio Telegraph Dunddin, May 15 A private cable reports tha success of the liquor trade's appeal m the Port Chftfmer3 licensing case. The Registrar of the District Court at Naseby dismissed a creditors' petition to have John Ewing of St Bath ins, declared bankrupt. The matter is likely to go to the Supreme Court. A Chinaman named Lun Toy, who was found m the South Dunedin Oval yesterday m a weak state, died m the hospital. He had been an inmate of tho Benevolent Institution. WETiMNOTON, May 15 The Chief Justice this morning decided a case m which the question arose of the right of a natural mother to the property of her son (deceased), who had been adopted by others. It appeared that the i adopted parents had died, and their adopted son had inherited their property and deeds. His natural mother (her son son was illegitimate) claimed the property left, but the Chief Justice, while admitting that the law was somewhat indefinite, ruled thatithe act of adoption extinguished the natural mother's claims. Tho case arose out of the interpretation of the will of W. L. Carter.
