Trustee Process, a process in certain states for reaching the goods or credits of a debtor in the hands of another who holds them for or is indebted to him. The proceeding for the purpose is by suit collateral to the suit against the debtor, in which the person proceeded against will be charged as trustee of the debtor, and adjudged to pay or account in satisfaction of the principal claim. The alleged trustee is examined on oath, and whatever belonging to the debtor is found in his hands is attached from the time the process is served upon him. The proceeding is purely statutory. In some states the corresponding proceeding is called a proceeding in garnishment, and the trustee is designated a garnishee. In these proceedings the trustee cannot be compelled to do more than he was bound to do by his contract or arrangement with the debtor.

Tsuruga, a city and seaport of Japan, in the province of Echizen, at the head of a bay of the same name on the W. coast of the main island, about 200 m. W. of Tokio; pop. about 20,000. It is almost the only good port on the W. side of the island, and attracts most of the junk and steamer trade. Its harbor is deep, spacious, and well protected. A canal connecting the bay with Lake Biwa, and thence through the Yodo river with the Inland sea, has long been projected by the government, and a railroad to Kioto and Osaka is now in progress (1876). The district around Tsuruga, which contains several large towns, is noted for its rice, silk, tea, paper, lacquer, and copper. Granite is quarried near the city, and lime is made in large quantities from marble.

Tuariks, Or Tuaregs, a people supposed to be of the Berber race, occupying the desert of Sahara westward from Fezzan to the Atlantic. According to their own traditions, they came originally from Canaan. They are Caucasian in feature, and, though of dark complexion, have straight hair, and bear no resemblance to any of the negro races. They are bold, warlike, and predatory, and live chiefly on booty and tribute exacted from the caravans crossing their country. They are very zealous Mohammedans, and are governed by independent chiefs. They are divided into several tribes, the principal being the Azkar Tuariks. The Tibboos, who occupy the portion of the desert between Fezzan and Egypt, are considered a branch of the same family. The total number of the Tuariks is estimated at somewhat less than 200,000.
