A RELIGIOUS POINT.
One nephew of a woman who died in 1873 having ceased to be a Roman Catholic, property at South Morang, valued at £2000, which she had conditionally bequeathed to him passes to the mother of another nephew. This was the decision of Mr. .Justice Cussen.
The testatrix was Ellen Bowland, of South Morang, who left her land to her nephew, James Thomas, afterwards making a provision, that if he ceased to profess the Roman Catholic faith it was to pass to her nephew Daniel McGtinn. Daniel Mc-Glinn having died, Alicia McGlinn, of Latrobe Street, his mother, claimed the property as his executrix.
James Thomas, also of Latrobe Street, called as a witness, stated that he had ceased to be a Roman Catholic.
Mr. Justice Cussen found that the contention of the plaintiff was good, but directed that she should pay the costs of all parties.
