I Tcnow of a case in iify couuiy where a man made a will in which lie set out the causes for disinheriting one child. That estate I undcrstaud is to go into court and though it is a line estate i?raay coinc out insolvent. The child does npt think the cause set forth in the will to be sufficient. 1 Herel will Answer another argument urged by the gentlemen who tell you to look at the common law reports in...

BMMIWBPWMBMBMMr3MMMWMIBWPffjyi!Wl?BWBBPJM'ff'TgfSg 1856. LEGISLATIVE PROCEEDINGS. 15 gentlemen have alluded ia the strongest possible argument in favor of a repeal of the law which prevents the parent from disposing of the whole of his estate by will. He may do this by gift we are told if the delivery of the property accompanies the gift. Now I believe that a man would act under as solemn convictions of duty in making a will as he would in making a deed of gift. But be this as it may T say that if a man wants to defraud his children he can do it just as well under the present law as expounded as if no such statute ex- isted. The only quuestion seems to be as to the manner or mode of doing it. If by gift it is all right. If by will it is void. No one in the language of the law is heir to the living. If when on ray death-bed I can make a donation of my property to a stranger by deed which is valid and ef- fectual how utterly futile is that law which prevents me from attaining the same...

LEGISLATIVE PROCEEDINGS. JULY 8 14 Every man believes himself capable of making a proper will. Now the gentleman from Nacogdoches has alluded to some facte and very poetic- ally too. But sir I will relate one fact in which there is more truth than poetry in regard to the operation of this law. A man died leaving a will and property amounting by the inventory to 825000. The will was contested and the matter in controversy wag whether more than one-fourth of the estate had been devised. Suit was brought in the district court and the will was set aside to the extent of the excess which was trivial. Before that litigation closed not a dollar of the estate was left. Every dol- j lar had been consumed in one way and an- other in consequence of the protracted lit- igation and expense attending it. I claim to have made some little observation in re- lation to these matters although I do not pretend to that professional experience and ability which lfcnow to be possessed by my distinguished ...

In this paper every device is resorted to to create dissension in the democratic ranks by engendering ill feeling between indivi- dual members of the party and to exaspe- rate the party against certain gentlemen whom he calls the " would-be leaders." For the purpose of forwarding his own inte- rest I presume in securing tile office of sheriff for John Hearn he introduces among others my humble name and by its use seeks to prove himself to be the only genuine democrat while he denominates the rest of us who fought side by side against the common enemy in the hour of trial " bogus."

TATE GAZETTE APPENDIX. PRINTED AND PUBLISHED AT THE CITY OF AUSTIN TEXAS BY MARSHALL & OLDHAM. Sixth Legislature Adj'd Session. AUSTIN TEXAS JULY 16 135G NO. 57- SENATE. Wednesday July IG 185G. A BILL TO QUIET LAND TITLES. After the business of the morning hour had been dispatched the Senate proceeded to the consideration of its special order on " a bill to quiet hind titles." This bill provides that the District Courts of this State s.iall hear and determine all suits brought to try land titles and all suits in which the question of forfeiture for breach of condition or for forfeitures or escheats under the Constitution and laws of the Republic of Texas or of this State and in all such suits either party may plead and prove any matter of law and fact which the State might do. It provides that all headrights augmentations and spe- cial grants to colonists lying in Austin's or Dcwitt's Colonies arc confirmed; provided that this confirmation shall not extend to grants issued previ...

LEGISLATIVE PROCEEDINGS. voted wrongly he should reform by coming back to the right. As I have before re- marked various portions of the State have been relieved by laws of this character. The citizens of Galveston City asked for relief to allow them to determine the title to Galveston Island. Suit was instituted t dotcrmiue whether or not the Island had been properly disposed of the decision having been made the right was found to vest iu the State. Galveston City asked that the right of the State to that Islaud be granted to that cit' and I am gratified to know that I responded favorably to that request ; and it is sufficient for me to know that there is merit in any measure to give it my unqualified approval and support. Well sir what is the intention of this Bill? I hold that it is simply a bill to quiet land titles aud to allow parties to in- vestigate theirtitles before the Courts of the country. A may sue B to try a land title to some particular lands which they hold in contr...

I9ff vS "J"-1 "nsrit " jf 35 LEGISLATIVE PROCEEDINGS. JULY 16 Jion the Courts may know on what side of "the question the case belongs. The reasons for passing this bill are various ; but the most important may be found in the Con- jtitution which provides (Art. XII. Sec. 4.) " That all fines penalties forfeitures and escheats which have accrued to the Republic of Texas under the Constitution ihall accrue to the State of Texas; and the Legislature shall provide a method by law i for determining what lands may have been forfeited or escheated." This section of the Constitution contemplates the passage of such a law as that now under consideration. Whether or not the courts of the coun- try are authorised to take any action upon litis subject now or whether or not the con- struction they place upon it is right is a matter immaterial to the question now at ifsue. It is sufficient to know the courts have refused to investigate such claims as are contemplated in this Bill unless the legis...

LEGISLATIVE PROCEEDINGS. Pi rl ffi&i and others all at the expense of the State aud all for the benefit of individuals. Now Mr. President this bill proposes that individuals shall have the rurht to show the forfeiture at their own expense; yet i the benator lrom btarr opposes it. uuless the lauds when so forfeited shall go to the State. lie opposes this legislation because o the expense to the State in passing the bill with no income to the State. All general laws are passed for the benefit of the people at the expense of the State as well as the special. See the legislation heretofore. I hope the Legislature will not refuse to pass this bill giving to individuals the right at their own trouble and expense to inves- tigate the forfeitures and receive the benefit of their labors. It is unjust after so much legislation for the benefit of individuals at the cost of the State to now take from the individual contending for the forfeiture the profits of his labor.

7 ti li U ! 28 LEGISLATIVE PROCEEDINGS. JULY 16 dent I feel called upon to make a few ob- pervations iii reply to the arguments pre- sented by the Senator from Williamson (Mr. Armstrong.) I have a distinct recol- lection that at a former session of the legis- lature when a bill to quiet land titles was bafore the Scuate. I introduced an amend- ment to allow parties in litigation to plead and prove any thing which the State would be competent to plead and prove and stange to say the Senator from Williamson voted agamstit ! 1 am sorry that i did not nave the distinguished Senator's support and co-operation on that occasion. Well sir what arc the objects to be accomplished by the passage of this bill? From its caption we learn that it is a bill to quiet land titles ! I am ready to coufess sir that I cannot sec how the mere authority to individuals to plead and prove anything granted in this bill can affect that object.

BBSSMWBBSBBffiBBBff 1855. LEGISLATIVE PROCEEDINGS. 31 revealed bitter and acrimonious recrimi- nations find their way into the pleadings and controversies spring up and never find a termination on this side the grave. Again sir under our statutes the wife is entitled to her separate property. No dis- position of that property can be made with- out her consent and that to bo properly given. The husband has no control over it as in the States. She certainly has not only the right of disposition of her sepa- rate property but also of her share of the community property acquired during her marriage. And yet sir no provision is made for this state of the . case in the bill before us. I contend that under tho pro- visions of this bill it is perfectly competent for the married woman to -make her will and deprive her husband of the rights he is entitled to in the community property. The result will be the introduction of a class of suits to which heretofore thank God we have been entire str...

They simply declare that his neck and twined her fingers in hishoary the child of a man's loins shall not be dis inherited without a cause; that whim and caprice shall not intervene to frustrate the plainest and most universal dictates of na- ture; that a man's estate shall be equally divided between his natural successors. They make a will for every man and make certainly as just a one as any man could possibly make for himself. The last section simply gives the father foe right to dispose of one-fourth of his property without any regard to the tramcls imposed by the previous section. It pro- vides for the case stated by Mr. Parsons in his report of the lunatic son or him upon whom the hand of God has been placed heavily by enabling the parent to single him out and leave an additional share t the amount of one-fourth of his estate to be appropriated f...

Mr. Dennis I shall not tax the patience of the House with a speech but I will no- tice for a moment some of tlje objections which have been urged against aoting upon this claim. I must confess I differ with gentlemen as to the weight of testimony before the Hou3c. Gentlemen who pretend to be friends of this moasuro say they want this bill passed because forsooth the State of Georgia has made a demand. I think it is evident and I think every member of this House is fully satisfied that there is a debt owing by the State of Texas and owing to somebody. Sir in the discussion of this matter an attempt has been made to bring up a false issue. Tho issue is not whether tho State of Toxas in indebted to Mr. Collin but whether the State of Texas owes the debt...
