Colonial Secretary's Office
No. 147 10th June, 1953
It is hereby notified that His
Excellency the Governor has
approved of the appointment
of Ex-Sergeant Theodore Al-
fred Bolstad, R.C.M.P., to the
unestablished post of Assistant
Superintendent of Prisons with
effect from the 1st June, 1953

Colonial Secretary.
M.P. P. 713.

Government Official Press
In a civil action recently
heard by the Supreme Court
an attorney-at-law in giving
evidence stated that, although
agreeing that the grant of
probate of a Will is, under the
rules of the Supreme Court, not
permitted until fourteen days
after the death of a testator, in
practice many Wills have been
probated within five or six
nays without a motion alleg-
ing urgency.
In dehvering his judgment,
tJie Honourable the Chief Jus-
t:ce said that he was not aware
of such a practice but would
cause an enquiry to be made.
This enquiry has now been
made, covering a period of ten
years from 1942, and not one
case has been found where
probate has been granted un-
der 14 days from the date of
the testator' death.
