Quarrel Due to Proviso In Will of
Mother Leaving Most to Favorite
Because Others Are Not
. Fitted for Business.
NEW YORK. Aug. 30. Because his
two brothers are crippled, and there
fore as he regards them, without hope
of ever becoming successful business
men, Arthur J. Mace, has refused to
care for them or divide with them the
money left by their mother at her
death. Contending that he is not his
brothers' keeper, he has refused to pay
the expense of their board and lodging
at his home, and In his action the Su
preme Court has borne him out.
Mace says that he is willing to have
his brothers live with him if they so
desire, but that because of their crip
pled condition he believes he Is not ob
ligated in any way toward providing
them with food and drink. The qaurrel
between the brothers over the disposi
tion of the fortune left by their mother,
who until her death was trustee of
1375,000 bequeathed by their father
Levi B. Mace, a manufacturer of toys
and refrigerators, has grown so bit
ter that Henry B. and Edward H. Mace,
the crippled ones, have taken their de
parture from Arthur's mansion In Wil
liamsburg. When Levi H. Mace died. In 189, lie
bequeathed his estate In trust to Mi
randa Mace, his widow, and gave the
Income from $100,000 to each of his
boys. Sirs. Mace died five years ago.
In her will she created another trust
fund of $50,000 for Henry B. Mace and
Edward H. Mace, and the residue of
her $700,000 estate she gave to her
other eon. Arthur J. Mace.
Blessing Cripples Bequest.
"1 desire to stale to my beloved sons,
Edward H. Mace and Henry B. Mace,"
she wrote In her will, "that, as each of
them received under the terms of the
will of my beloved husband, his father,
the Income for life on an Investment of
$100,000, and as the health aad physical
condition of neither of my sons, Ed
ward H. Mace or Henry B. Mace, will
permit him to engage in business for
himself, that under my will, all of their
reasonable wants have been thus am
ply provided for. and I leave to each of
them his mother's blessing."
Then following the testamentary pro
vision that caused the rupture in the
relations of the boya: "As my two
sons, Henry B. Mace and Edward H.
Mace, are physically disabled, and as It
Is my will that a home be' kept for them
and for my son, Arthur J. Mace, al

about my dwelling-house and farm In
Wllliamsbrldge, New York City, used
as a residence by me, the same to be
kept as far as possible Intact, and to be
used to furnish a home for my sons."
This Wllliamsbrldge home Is valued
at I37B.0OO. Henry and Edward, con
ceding that the property itself was left
to their brother, Arthur, claimed that
their mother In her will Imposed upon
the estate the obligation of paying for
their board and lodging In the old
homestead for life. Arthur denied this
and told them they would either have
to pay for theli keep or go Into an
