SATURDAY EVENING, JAN. 1, 1881. Uacialmca Meney. Something About the Many Millions That Await Claimants in English Banks and Courts. si. Y. World. There are are few subjects mere inter esting and especially te readers in tbe new world than that treated by Mr. Ed ward Preston, of 1 Great College street Westminster, S. W., the well-known com piler of "Chamber's Index te Next of Kin," in his little volume, "Unclaimed Meney.' ' As te the extent of the work covered in such an "Index" jt may be said that the nrrrtTiir rkli,win,y f t,e T.nnrfnn Wm Fm one year contained some two thousand no tices. In twenty-six cases the treasury so licitor advertised for the next of kiu. The amount of money reverting te the crown is rarely made public, but in the famous case of Mrs. Helen Blake, of Kensington. tbe persenalty alone amounted te $700,000 aud the last Parliamentary return showed receipts by the Crown of windfalls " amounting te 303,302. In many ether cases large rewards were offered fur bap tismal, marriage and burial certificates. The descendcuts were advertised for of the Braats, born in 1778 ane 1782 ; of a baronet who died in 1724 ; of a couple that married in 1708 ; of a person who came te America in 1G83. A cab-driver was want ed te take possossien of a fortune, a pau per at IIull te receive 30,000 bequeathed by a Scottish nobleman. The baptismal certificate of the son of the Earl of Dcla mcre was wanted, aud 2e0 were offered for a clue te the marriage settlement of a rich man, who, dying suddenty, could only mutter anxiously, ".Lincoln's Inn i lclds." There were many people who would " find it te their advantage" te reveal themselves some had net been heard of since 1798, one had fallen heir te 12,000. On the subject of dormant funds in Ulinnccry Jlr. 1'resten tells us that since 1725 all money and effects have been given into the custody of the Bank of England. In 1829 the total amount of suitors' stock then in court was nearly 38,000,000. In 1853 the Suitors' further relief act was passed, by which the Lord Chancellor was empowered te investigate accounts the dividends en which bad net been dealt with for fifteen years or mere and where he was of opinion that it was net probable any claim would be made for the same te make eiders for the appropriation of future dividends for the benefit of the suitors, direction being also given for a similar investigation at the end of every five years. In 1834 the suitors' stock then iu court amounted te 4G, 000,000 and there were 5GG accounts ameuntiug te mere than 236,000 that had net been dealt with for fifteen years. On publication of the list about one-half of the stock was transferred out of court te successful claimants. The list of dormant funds in chancery .printed in the Louden Gazette in 1872 filled thirty pages and contained 2,500 names, besides which there were eighty entries of articles at the bank be longing te suiteis in Chancery, such as ' five chests and one box, marked ' plate and jewelry ;' " "a box marked, 'diamond necklace, coronet and ear lings ;' " "a box containing documents of title, jewels, trinkets, watches and personal ornaments;" and the like. The unclaimed funds iu chancery have been used te lighten the burden of taxation, and the new law courts wete built with the unclaimed interest of these funds. Among the instances given of successful claims upon the government for the ic fuuding of estates which had reverted te the crown by reason of persons dying in testate and leaving no known next of kin, several are worth quoting. A four line notice of the death of Mrs. Maria Mangin Biown iu 1S72 secured 192,535 te four claimants from Italy. In 18C1 the rela tives of Brigadier General Geerge Kehler, who died in Egypt in 1800, obtained his property iiem the Crown, the principal ameuutiug te about 3,000 and the interest te 15,000. Themas Dewell died intestate in 18-G, leaving an estate of 2,004 ; this the next of kiu recovered 'in 1858, with interest, the vice chancellor ruling that " the crown had no right te have money, as it were, wrapped up in a napkin." In 1842 Mr. Jehn Turner died intestate, aud when some years later his estate was claimed, the crown had te re place 57,000 of stock sold and covered into the treasury, and pay interest en it at 4 per cent. And se en. There arc also funds te a large amount lying dormant iu India, lists of which are regularly pub lished, while the Crewu agents of the colonies print schedules of intestates. One single list in New Seuth Wales contained 150 names, mostly these of miners and ex plorers, the assets ranging from a few sovereigns te 4,000. Anether list from the Cape of Geed Hepe contained 500 en tries, the sums involved ranging up te 1,200. Of army prize money, tee, a large share is i ever claimed ; be tween 1809 and 1870 the commissioners of Chelsea hospital received 1,890,451, of which only 1,122,040 went te claimants. Naval prize money is net se important an item as it was in the geed old days as in 1745 when Captain Talbot captured two Ercnch vessels which yielded 850 a man te the common sailors, the proprietors of the privateer throwing iu for 700,000, or when another bold privatetcers man, Cap tain Butler landed a 400,000 prize ; or in 17G2, when Captain Pewnall captured the Hermioue oil" Cadiz, which netted 520, 000, the captain receiving 05,000, the admiral and commodore dividing a simi lar sum, and ordinary seamen having each 485 5s. 4d. " Peer Jack" hardly get his hhare at the capture of Havana in 17G2, when the admiral obtained nearly 123, 000 and the commodore 24,500, while 12, 000 seamen enlydivided 15,947 between them. In 1785, it is worth adding, where a number of East Indianmcn surrounded a French vessel and made a prize of her without firing a shot, the passengers and recruits carried en the vessels claimed a share, but the former were non-suited, the court holding that "it was net probable that these gentlemen who were looking through the windows with their hair full dressed struck any terror into the mind of the enemy." The capture of a slave dhow affords a small profit nowa days. In the case of the Asmecn the captain of the English vessel get 85 18s. and his subordinates smaller sums down te the eight and sixpenny share of a boy. One reason why a large percentage of prize money is never claim ed, apart from the possibility of the claimant's death iu later actions, is found in the long delays that commonly elapse ere the money is formally awarded. Thus in the Indian mutiny of 1857, the loot of Banda and Kirwee amounted te an im mense sum ; it was net begun te be divid ed till 1868. The list of the articles looted is decidedly interesting. At Kirwee the jewels included 109 diamonds iu a paper: 28 diamond and pearl bracelets ; 6 large f geici bracelets ; se geld neck chains ; l pearl necklace 9 strings ; " numerous ether " pearl, diamond aud ruby necklaces 17 strings of pearls; several diamond ear-rings; 56 ornaments with precious tenes: 18 pearl ear ornaments; aiar, large i 244 pearl necklaces with emeralds pearls; 1 armlet with 66 brilliants; 1 diamond necklace with pearls 31 divis ions ;,29 small pearl necklaces ; 4 geld nose rings with 4 large pearls ; 2 silver-cased ; mirrors; 1 diamond necklace in three strings with brilliant drop and a large emerald ; two pearl necklaces 190 pearls ; ' numerous " diamond armlets ; 2 bangles, with 22 bells ; 1 string of 4 large pearls ; 22 diamond rings ; 1 pearl waist-belt ; 31 strings of pearls and 2 diamond bracelets 132 brilliants. Besides, there were 69,- 597 geld Venetian coins, 15,534 mehurs and 431 sovereigns ; 250 bars and brick of geld and geld chains and bracelets, valued at 100,000. with rupees and pice amount ing te 210,000, and 10,000 worth of sil ver bullion. AtBandawere found with many ether things diameud and geld armlets, geld and coral necklaces, strings of diamonds, a geld hookah bet with pre cious stones, and geld mouthpiece, a geld tray set with precious stones, a diamond head-piece, an emerald necklace, a d.tgger set with brilliants, te say nothing of 5 sil ver umbrellas, 4 silver spears, 1 silver trumpet, 21 silver sticks, 1 silver punkah. 17 pieces of geld lace, 110 Sewars' blue coats, a let of watches and musical boxes, carpets, uniforms, elephants and trappings, the palace and grounds, bathing ghauts, houses and gardens, ottugalews, promis sory notes and securities amounting te 250,000, and ether items. The promis sory notes were adjudged net te be prize within the meaning of the proclamation. In the Dcccan case mere than 8,000,000 were claimed, including such items as "treasure found at Nassuck, 302.500;" "the Pei3hwa's money, 387,358;" "jewels and ether valuables, 298,963;" " treasure belonging te the Rajah of Nag Nag Nag pere, 337,500;" "jewels of the Rajah found iu a drain, 2,500,000;" "arrears of rent due te the Peishwa from the Nizan 4.373,000," and se en. It was some four teen years ere these claims were adjusted. It may be added that many thousands of pounds of unclaimed soldiers' pay await distribution, some men having left sums of 150 and ever te their credit, with no indication of the relatives' whereabouts. These of our leaders who are interested in the Hussar and Captain Kidd'streasuic enterprises will find geed reading in Mr. Preslen'3 tenth chapter "Lest at Sea." The Luxine, a 33-guu ship, which tailed in 1799 from Yarmouth for theTexcl, was lest off the Dutch coast with a large amount of treasure. She was heavily in sured, and the underwriters paid the claims aud then undertook salvage, recov ering 80,000 of specie in the fiist eigh teen months. Operations were resumed iu 1814 and contained till 1821, but the wreck had sunk into the sand only a few pieces of silver rewarding the searchers. In 1822 a company was formed which sank several thousand pounds without success, and abortive efforts were continued until 1857 when a storm cleared the wreck in part and 25,000 worth of geld was brought up. The Thetis was wrecked in 1830 oil the Brazilian coast, having onboard 102, 000 in bullion ; the ships en the station subsequently saved a geed deal of it, for the crews were awardcd34,800 salvage and expenses. Anether interesting chapter is that in " Ileirs-at-Law versus Chanties." Net the least curious charity mentioned is that known as "Smith's Peer Kiu." In 1G27 Aldcrjnan Smith bequeathed 1.000 te be invested in laud, the income of which was te be distributed for the relief and ransom of captives taken by the Tin k- is!i pirate.-;, and a similar sum te be simi larly invested, the income in this case te be applied te relieving the poorest of the testator's kindred, "sick, aged and im potent person, and such as could net maintain their own charges." The es tate is new worth 11,000 a year, but the "peer kiu" have increased proportion ately. There were four needy relatives iu 1700; in 1830 there were 100; in 1808 there were 412 ; new there are ever 700. Among these "peer Smiths" are a gen tleman, a wholesale grescr, a surgeon, a music master, a retired surgeon and a ic tircd druggist, the most indigent of whom has 300 a year; another "peer Smith" has an income of 440. The charity commissioners have been directed te frame a new scheme anil apply a por tion of the income te general charitable purposes, whereat the peer Smiths cry lustily aloud, "Confiscation !" The unclaimed dividends iu the Bank of England amount te immense sums. Seme 900,000 of "dividends due aud net de manded" arc entered in the books, be sides a nearly equal sum advanced te gov ernment. Curiously enough, the bank no longer publishes li.sts it being claimed that such publication promotes fraud but confines itself te sending out circulars te people who seem in its governors' epin ion likely te be interested. In some cases dividends have been accruing since 1754. According te the lists published some forty years age the representatives of some 30, 000 investors in the Seuth Sea company were entitled te about 5,500,000 for un claimed dividends and stock. There is also some seven or eight millions sterling in the hands of trustees iu bankruptcy, representing unclaimed dividends. Still mere unclaimed money is awaiting the heirs of owners of prizes iu the state lot teries of the last century, as appears from an entry in the aunttal state ment of the Bank of England. There is a large sum of money lying dormant in the form of unexpected assets. Thus in 1748 one Ashley died, his estate being settled in 1792. Seme of the creditors had lest track of the case and never called for their dividends, and in 1867 the courts were called ou te take some action with regard te these sums. Simul taneously a large sum of money unex pectedly accrued te the estate, and a law suit arose which was settled iu 187G by the decision that the dividends of 1792 left unclaimed must (in the absence of any act of Parliament concerning their dis position) remain till some one came for ward aud proved a title te them, while the newly-accrued fund must be appor tioned among all the original creditors these whose debts carried iutcrcst being entitled te interest from 1792 te 1876, un less they had left their money iu court, in which case they could have no interest en the money se left, but must bear the conse quences of their ewu neglect. In 18G4a sum of nearly 150,000 was announced as hav ing been received for the representatives of the creditors of an insolvent of 1803 ; in J 1850,1 ull payment was made te the credi tors of two gentlemen named Proudfeot,. who failed in 1792 ; and new the heirs of an insolvent of 1821 have advertised for his creditors. In conclusion we may give some of the most strik ing instances of windfalls recorded by Mr. Preston. Edward Whitmore, a private soldier in the Ninth, fell heir te 50,000 un expectedly ; a soldier in the Ninety-first, while at Cerk, saw a newspaper adver tisement for "next of kin," and answer ing it obtained a fortune of 250,000; a peer barber at Gloucester came into 350, 003 in like fashion; Mr. Jehn Fergusen, of Cairnbrook, who died in 1855, left 800,000 in sums of from 1,000 te 50,-000,-teagreat number of relatives, most of whom were in humble circumstances ; a Yerk cabman found himself ene of eight inheritors te an estate of 150,000 &c., &c, . B. Helmes, an actor of some repute, died in Philadelphia yesterday of cancer. That B f tiallagker's. He TerzeU te Kemev Hte Parler Skat' from the Old Mam's . Erie Herald. The circumstances were as follews: Mr. Gallagher had te take a train that left at six-o'clock, and se he arose before day light te breakfast, and thought he would put en his thick beets instead of the very light shoes he had en ever evening. New it seems that Gallagher's son had worn the old man's beets while roller skating and had left the skates en the. beets, and in the darkness Gallagher didn t netice this faet as he pulled the beets en, though he thought the beets felt heavy. He then groped his way te the head of the stairs, the skates making no trouble ea the car pets. Then he started te go down stairs. He get there. He get there dreadfully sud den. He was terribly annoyed as he picked" himself up and said very wicked things m he started for the dining-room. Break fast was laid, but only a dim light was burning. Immediately he set feet en the polished fleer, Mr. G.'s feet flew into the air and his head came down with ter rible force. The wild yell that he gave brought his wife and mother-in-law from the kitchen. He arose te his feet, but they immediately started off in different directions, and after wrenching his spine and knee joints terribly in trying te con trol them they get away, and he jarred his spinal column the whole length as he wcut down. "Land of gracious ; this fleer is oiled !" he reared as he began te make efforts te rise. "Have you apoplexy or have you been drinking?" asked his wife as she strove te assist him te get up. "Yeu held your jaw, you idiot 1" here plied, and 'then she let go of him sort of sudden and dewu he went, bruising him self in six places. "Gesh," "tunket," "drat" and "durn" were words called into requisition te relieve his mind that time, and he told his mother-in-law, who had fallen, laughing, into the chair, that he hoped she'd meet cows every time she wcut out. Then he essayed te rise ence mere and get upon his1 feet. The skates began te slip, but1 he struggled like a here aud clutched the air wildly te keep his balance. Ne nse. As he fell forward he wildly grabbed the table cloth, and as a result yanked the en tire breakfast upon him. The het tea scalded him, the pepper get into his eyes, tlie mustard into his mouth and tue eggs all ever him. His rries were fearful. They hauled him from the debris and started te put him te bed, when they discovered the rollers. Mr. G was terribly used up, but he started at ence te find his son, and the lad's sighing ever his great grief was heard si blocks away. Deg Shew. On January 17th a deg show will open iu Pittsburgh, at which some of the finest dogs in the world will be exhibited. Mr. J. J. SncIIeubcrg, the owner of a gorgeous kennel iu Philadelphia, will make a splen did exhibition of his pure Laventck set ters, headed by his well-known field trial winner, Thunder, who took part "in the recent field trials in this county, lie will also exhibit May Laverack, who took the first prize at the Great National American field trials held at Yinccnnes, Iudiana, last November. There arc a large number of fine dogs of all kinds in this city and county, and would it net be a geed idea for some of the owners te get up a deg show in this city ? A great deal of interest las always been taken iu canines here and a hhew would be largely patronized as owners of dogs in all parts of the county could be induced te exhibit their animals. It might be combined with a poultry show for that matter, and it has been suggested that te test pubiic interest in deg breeding a few benches of geed dogs be included in the coming poultry show.
