It is contended thdt ihe Court had no
jurisdiction of the ease, because original
jurisdiction 'of all proeeeilings'necessary
for. the 8"attl client of the-estate of a de
ceasi d p"rsoit, is, by law, vested exclu
sively in the Probate Judge. Section 17,
Art IV, of the- Constitution gives "lo the
Clerks of the Sn; erior Courts jurisdiction

and of administration, aid "to audit the
!fl.cour,u ,,f executors, administrators and
1 ,. j t u,-
) cuardi.ins, and ot snch other matters as
giiari.ians, ana ot sncn ouier matters as j
siiall be prescrihtjd bv law." The words
f t! s irrant of jurisdiction are somewhat
gem ral and indefinite, arid it was inlei.tl

can not order. In that case the party
i needing it must of necessity apply to a
Judge of a Superior Court; but such an
I application would not oust the jurisdic

junction bifore the Judge would not re
move the original cause of action before
