In his philosophy the general features of the system of Descartes, were, combined with elements derived from Platonism. According to Malebranche, we know nothing of the external world directly; we know external things only as they exist in idea in the divine reason the ideas of them being presented to our minds on occasion of the corresponding impressions, bein made upon our bodies. The rea existence of the external world itself thus becomes for Malebranche (as Christian believer rather than as philosopher) an article of faith, involved in the doctrine of creation. Or, as he said, “We see all things in God.” While his philosophical position has a certain resemblance to that of Berkeley, Malebranche is more directly connected with English philosophy by means of his disciple John Norris, an acute critic of Locke. Malebranche's two chief works are Recherche de la Vérité (1674; Eng. trans. 1694). and Entretiens sur la Métaphysique (1688). See Adamson's De:* of Modern Philosophy 1903). Male Fern.

Malice. . . A term of varying signification in , the law, ranging from active malevolence to criminal intent. It is in the latter sense that the term is used in criminal law, and in this sense it is an essential ingredient in every crime; and in the case of murder premeditation, called “malice aforethought,” must be present: (See MURDER.) In the case of civil wrongs, the presence or absence of malice in the sense of bad motive is, as a general rule, immaterial. The exceptions are:— § Actions, for slander of title; 2) actions for malicious prosecution; (3) maliciously inducing others to break their contracts. The question of malice also becomes important in actions for defamation, in which the defence of privilege, when it is set up may be rebutted, by evidence o actual malice. An act lawful in itself is not converted by a malicious or bad motive into an unlawful act so as to make the doer of the act liable to a civil action. There is a presumption, as to infants between seven and fourteen that they cannot commit a felony; but this presumption is rebutt by evidence of malice—i.e. conMalicious Injury

scious wrongful intent. As malice constitutes a state of mind, it must either be proved by the admission of the accused, which would be most unusual, or , by inference from the nature of his words and conduct, which is the common method, and therefore it is a question of fact for the jury. See CRIME. Consult Bishop's New Criminal Law. Malicious Injury to Property. The various criminal acts constituting malicious injury to #. are now generally dened and regulated by statute. In every case the act must be done “unlawfully and maliciously;’ and malice towards the particular owner of the property need not be proved—it is sufficient to prove a general intent to injure. The following are offences: Riotously assembling and destroying or injuring buildings or machinery, wilfully damaging goods in course of manufacture: wilfully injuring shrubs, trees, growing vegetables etc., damaging walls, houses, an outbuildings: flooding coal mines or damaging mine, engines: destroying sea or river banks: damaging a fishery or poisoning fish: destroying a bridge: attempting to throw a train off the track: injuring telegraphs, etc.: o works of art in museums an public places: killing or maiming cattle or other domestic animals: exhibiting false lights for ships: removing buoys: destroying wrecks. Penalties vary from , a fine to penal servitud for life, according to the gravity of the offence. Malicious Prosecution. The institution of a criminal action against a person from a malicious motive and without probable cause. If a man is prejudiced in his person, or property by a malicious criminal prosecution, he has a right of action against the wrongdoer. In an action, for malicious prosecution the plaintiff, to succeed, must prove, (1) that he was innocent; (2) that there was want of reasonable and probable cause for the prosecution; (3) that the prosecution was initiated maliciously—i.e. from an indirect or improper motive, and not in the furtherance of justice. Actions will also lie for maliciously making a man bankrupt, or having him arrested, petitioning to wind up a company, or obtaining a search warrant. Malignant Pustule. See ANthrax. Malignants, a name generally applied by the Puritans to the supporters of the king against Parliament and even as a term of reproach to the kings themselves.
