    In the Supreme Court yesterday, before  his honour Mr. Justice Real, the following matter was dealt, with: — in the matter of SCHUSSER AND ANOTHER
    V. DREWS; APPLICATION FOR PROBATE Mr. F. G. Hamilton (instructed by Mr. O. W. Hamilton, and his town agents, Messrs. Graham and Hunter) appeared for the plaintiffs There was no appearance on behalf  of the defendant. This was an action in which Bertha Schusser and Rudolf Wakerling (sic) were the plaintiffs, and Johanna Drews was the defendant. The matter was one for probate of the will of Andreas Schusser to be granted to the plaintiffs as executors. The defendant in the notion was stated to be the daughter of the testator. Mr. Hamilton said he understood that there was no appearance on behalf of the defendant. The plaintiff's solicitors had that morning received a letter informing them that there was no intention on behalf of the defendant to appear. He read the affidavit  of Thomas Brown Hunter, member of the firm of Messrs. Graham and Hunter, that notice of trial had been served. In this ease it was set out in the pleadings that Andreas Schusser, late of Toowoomba, farmer, deceased, died on November 2, 1902, at Toowoomba. Ho duly made and executed his last will, hearing the date of October 20, 1902, and thereby appointed plaintiffs executors. He was at the time of the execution of his will of sound mind, memory, and understanding. Plaintiffs denied that the defendant was the lawful daughter of the said Andreas Schusser, deceased. The plaintiffs denied that the defendant had any interest in the estate of the deceased, and claimed probate of the will in solemn form. Tho statement of defence set out the following particulars : The defendant was the wife of Frank Drews, of Drayton, near Toowoomba, Queensland, farmer, and was the lawful daughter and one of the next of kin of Andreas Schusser. Defendant claimed that the alleged will of the deceased was not duly executed according to law. It was further claimed that the deceased was not at the time the said will purported to be executed, of sound mind, memory, and understanding, and that at the time of the alleged execution of the alleged will, the deceased did not know and approve of the contents thereof. The said Andreas Schusser was induced to execute the said alleged will (if duly executed, which defendant denied) by the undue influence  of each of the plaintiffs.  His Honour said he could not see what the statements in the claim and the defence had to do with the case. Mr. Hamilton said that an application for probate had been made before the registrar, and the defendant had lodged a caveat, claim- mg to be one of the next of kin. Rules laid down that in such event the plaintiff should, in his statement of claim, if he disputed that, allege it. The execution of the will would have to be proved and that the testator was at the time of sound mind, memory, and understanding. The registrar (Mr. J. L. Blood-Smyth) produced the will. Theodore Franz Heindrick Johannes Langebeeker, minister of religion, duty authorized to celebrate marriages, said he had known the deceased. He knew Rudolf Wackerling. He did not know Bertha Schusser. He remembered on October 18 deceased and Wackerling calling on him at the parsonage late in the afternoon. Schusser asked witness to make a will for him in favour of his young wife, to whom he had been married that day. He wanted to leave her everything. Witness said he (the deceased) should come on Monday' morning. On that day they came, and he drew up the will (produced). He explained the will to Schusser and Wackerling. Two young men witnessed the signing of the will. He explained the will to Schusser in German, as he did not understand English. He told him  he was leaving all his real and personal estate to his young wife. Schusser said he was content. He signed the will, and then the  witnesses signed it. They were all present during tho signing of the will. Witness gave it to Schusser, and Schusser gave it to Wackerling for safe keeping. The will was prepared exactly as Schusser told him. The deceased appeared to be in the full possession of all his mental faculties. Witness made no draft of the will. Andrew Busiko, farmer at Toowoomba, said he had known the deceased for 15 years. In October last Schusser asked him to witness his will. They went to the Rev. Mr. Langbeeker's house. Mr. Langebeeker read out a document which he understood to be Schusser's will, and by which he was leaving all his property to his wife. Witness thought. Schusser was all right in his mind. His Honour : How old was he ? Witness: About 70 Mr. Hamilton : You know he is dead?  Witness : Yes. His Honour : Did you see him dead? Witness : Yes. His Honour : Was he in perfectly good  health when he made the will ? Witness: Yes. His Honour : Ho died a fortnight after wards. Nicholas Phillips Eliiott. medical practitioner, of Toowoomba, said he had known the deceased for about twelve months and had attended him professionally. He died on October 31, 1902. He consulted witness about three times previously. Witness gave a certificate of death. The cause of death was acute inflammation of the kidneys and heart failure. Mr. Hamilton : Had you an opportunity of judging of his condition ? Yes. His Honour : What, did you treat him for previous to this ? Dyspepsia His Honour : Do you think a man should get married under the circumstance of the case ? It is a matter of opinion. As to his capacity of making a will ? He was perfectly well able to do it. Rudolf Wackerling, farmer, residing at Ravensbourne, near Toowoomba, said he had known Andreas Schusser, now deceased. He was the husband of his (witness's) daughter. Witness was one of the plaintiffs in the action, and claimed to be one of the executors under the will. Witness knew him a week before he was married. He was married in October last. Witness received a letter, came into town, and saw Schusser. He asked if he could marry his (witness's) daughter. Witness said that when he liked to marry his daughter he would give her to him. On a subsequent occasion Schusser said he would give her his property. His daughter was present, and said he could do as he liked. They were afterwards married in the court-house. ' Do you know that gentleman (indicating a gentleman in court) ? Witness : Yes ; he is the gentleman who marries people at the court-house. His Honour asked did not the law required a declaration as to an objection to be married by a clergyman before a marriage at the court-house was legal? The matter was looked up and it was found that that was so. Mr. Hamilton said that the clergyman had been asked to marry them, but he had re fused as they were not of his congregation. Witness, continuing, said he signed a con sent to the marriage. Witness, the day after the wedding, went with Schusser to Busiko. He did not hear what was said. Mr. Schusser left everything by his will to his wife, who was witness's daughter. His daughter gave witness the will, and he kept it until Schusser died. Bertha Schusser, widow of the deceased, said she was one of the executors under her husband's will. She had known him for about a month before the marriage. She agreed to marry him, and wrote to her father, who gave his consent. Before the marriage the deceased told her he would make all the property over to her. A will was made. Witness was not present when it was signed. ..Her father gave her the will, which she read. She did not speak to her husband about it. On the Monday the will was signed he was in good health. It was a week afterwards before he got ill, and witness told him to go to the doctor. He was ill for 14 days before he died. Witness attended her husband in his illness. He told her to look after the will and she would get everything. Up to about 3 o'clock on the day he died — he died at 6 o'clock — he seemed to understand everything said to him. His Hononr : How did yon come to know him? Witness: I was working at a hotel.
    And he used to visit it? Yes. He asked you to marry him, and you said you would? Yes. He was living by himself ? Yes. G. Essex Evans, registrar of births, marriages, and deaths, produced a copy of the register of the death of Schusser, He know Schusser, had married him. He was perfectly sane when married and capable of making a will. His Honour granted probate of the will. Mr. Hamilton asked for costs against the defendant. His Honour said that unless it could be shown that defendant was no relation of the testator he would not grant costs. Mr. Hamilton said they had been charged with undue influence. His Honour said that he had found the testator to have been sane, but be was an old man of 70, that he married a girl whom he had not known for any length of time previous. Her father and two others were present when he made his will, and he was not left by himself for a single moment, The girl he married was only a child of 19. The fact that defendant did not come into court indicated that she ceased to put that construction  on the matter that she must have done at  first. He had come to a similar conclusion that if she came into court to fight the matter it would be different.. The testator picked up a girl of 19 whom he had not known, then she in charge of her father went to a clergyman and the will was read over in the presence of the father. Also tho testator died within 14 days from the marriage. Mr. Hamilton said that the defendant could have withdrawn the caveat long ago. Instead of that it was left till the last moment. It must be remembered too, that the testator had been living alone. His Honour said if it could he shown that the defendant was not the testator's daughter, he would grant costs, as then she would have had no bushiness to interfere. Mr. Hamilton said that the testator was married to his, first wife in 1868 and on the death of that wife he described defendant as her daughter. He stated also that she was 41 years of age at that time. The date of the death of the first wife made it impossible for the defendant to be the testator's daughter. His Honour said he declined to grant costs. He thought that when an old man of 70 disregarded all natural obligations and took a sudden fancy to someone he had not previously known, that he might be said to have got softening of the brain. The books on insanity pointed to that."
