ST. GILES' CHRISTIAN MISSION.-Will you kindly permit me, through the columns of your paper, to earnestly appeal to the readers to come to our aid? At this time of the year we are dealing with hundreds of applications from poor toilers in our great city, who, worn out with the heart-breaking struggle "to make both ends meet," are appealing to me to send them and their children for a stay at our own seaside holiday homes; we are aleo arranging and giving several one-day excursions in the country to poor children. This mission has worked among the poor, the sick, the aged, and the fallen for over half a century, and its efforts have been endorsed by the highest authorities. Owing to the increased claims made upon our resources by the various branches, we are urgently in need of funds to carry out this year's programme, and cheques and postal orders (crossed Barclay and Co.) will be thankfully received and acknowledged.
WM. WHEATLEY, Superintendent.
St. Giles' Christian Mission, 4, Ampton-street, Regent square, London, W.C.
ASSIGNMENT OR UNDERLETTING BY TENANT.-I have read with interest the article in your issue for the 17th ult. under the heading Assignment or Underletting by Tenant." It would appear, however, that you have overlooked one point which is not altcg ther an unimportant one to the readers of your journal-namely, the subject of costs. The decision in West v. Gwynne, in addition to deciding the point under sect. 3 to which you have referred, also deals with the costs of an action brought by the lessee for a declaration of his right to assign. In Young v. Ashley Gardens Properties (1903, 2 Ch. 112), where a lessee obtained such a declaration, it was held that he was entitled to costs. On the other hand, in Jenkins v. Price (1907, 2 Ch. 229) Mr. Justice Swinfen-Eady took the distinotion that whilst the lessee was entitled to a declaration of right to assign, the lessor's refusal gave no cause of action, and the lessee, therefore, could not be allowed costs, and this was followed in Evans v. Levy (1910, 1 Ch. 452). This result as to costs is clearly a hardship upon a lessee, who is justified in invoking the assistance of the court, and what I am desirous of pointing out is that the Court of Appeal, in West v. Gwynne, decided that the costs should be borne by the party whose co duct has made the proceedings necessary, so that Jenkins v. Price and Evans v. Levy have been overruled as to costs. J. BRYDEN.
NOTES AND QUERIES.
13. AGENTS.-Is a person who habitually acts as an agent for the sale, purchase, and letting of house property as a business a general agent, so that all contracts made by him for his principals, in the ordinary course of his employment, without notice of any private instructions and without fraud or collusion, will bind such principals ? Cases will oblige. DUBITANS.
PART I.-Roman law. II. Constitutional law (English and colonial) and legal history. III. Criminal law and procedure. Every student must also satisfy the examiners in one of the following subjects: IV. Real property and conveyancing, or Hindu and Mahomedan law, or RomanDutch law (Hilary and Trinity examinations).
PART II-THE FINAL EXAMINATION.-Every student will be examined in the same subjects. Four papers will be set: (a) In common law; (b) in equity; (c) law of evidence and civil procedure; (d) a general paper on all the above subjects. Every student must present himself for these four papers at the same examination.
A student may present himself for examination in all or any of the Subjects I., II., III., and IV. of Part I. of the Bar Examination at any time after admission. Without the special leave of the council no student shall present himself for Part II. unless he has kept six terms. He may then present himself for examination in any subject of Part I. at the same time as Part II.
Any student who, before the 12th Jan. 1908, passed in the subject, "Evidence, procedure (civil and criminal), and criminal law," under the former regulations, will be allowed the following option: (a) He may, if he wishes, proceed under these regulations and present himself for Subject IV. of Part I., and for the final examination as now constituted, or (b) He may, if he prefers, be excused from passing separately Subject IV. of Part I., and take the paper on real property and conveyancing as part of his final examination instead of the paper on the law of evidence and civil procedure (Part II. (c)), in which case he will be asked in his general paper questions on real property and conveyancing instead of questions on the law of evidence and civil procedure.
No student will be allowed to pass in Part II. of the Bar Examination unless he has previously, or at the same examination, satisfied the examiners in all four subjects of Part I. But if a student takes up any subject of Part I. at the same time as Part II. and fails in Part II., he will nevertheless be allowed to pass in any subject of Part I. in which he has satisfied the examiners.
A student who presents himself for any examination and whose papers show that he had no reasonable expectation of passing, will not be admitted for examination again until the expiration of such time as the council may direct.
In all examinations successful students will be classified according to merit. In each class the names will be arranged alphabetically, except as to class I. and Class II. in the Final Examination, in which the names will appear in order of merit.
A student who obtains a first class at the Final Examination (Part II.), and who, either before or at such examination, passes in Subjects I., II., III, and IV., will receive a certificate of honour.
No student will be eligible for a prize who is over twenty-five years of age on the first day of the examination. This limit of age does not apply in the case of honours.
A student who has passed the examination in any subject will not be allowed to present himself again for examination in that subject. Nevertheless, any member of an Inn of Court who had already passed in any one of the three alternative papers in Subject IV. of Part I. (real property and conveyancing, Hindu and Mahomedan law, or Roman-Dutch law) may subsequently, after passing Part II, present himself for examination in any other of these alternative papera, and if he passes will be granted a special certificate to that effect.
At every call to the Bar those students who have obtained studentships or certificates of honour will take rank in seniority over all other students called on the same day. Those students who have obtained certificates of honour will take rank immediately after the holder of a studentship called on the same day.
The Inn of Court to which the holder of any studentship or of any certificate of honour belongs may, if desired, dispense with any terms, not exceeding two, that may remain to be kept by such student previously to his being called to the Bar.
A student who, at any time previously to his admission at an Inn of Court, was a solicitor in practice for not less that five consecutive years, either in Eugland or in any colony or dependency, but who in either case was admitted in England, and in accordance with rule 3 of the consolidated regulations has ceased to be a solicitor before his admission as a student, may be examined for call to the Bar without keeping any terms, and may be called to the Bar upon passing the public examination required by these rules, without keeping any terms. Provided that such solicitor has given at least twelve months' notice in writing to each of the four Inns of Court, and to the Incorporated Law Society, of his intention to seek call to the Bar, and producee a certificate that he is a fit and proper person to be called to the Bar, signed, if his practice was in England, by two members of the council of the Incorporated Law Society, and,
if his practice was in a colony or dependency, by the Chief Justice of such colony or dependency.
The council may accept as an equivalent for the examination in Roman law-(1) A degree granted by any university within the British dominions, for which the qualifying examination included Roman law; (2) A certificate that any student has passed any such examination, though he may not have taken the degree for which such examination qualifies him; Provided the council is satisfied that the student, before he obtained his degree, or obtained such certificate, passed a sufficient examination in Roman law.
[The above rules also refer to the Hilary Examination 1912 ]
An examination will be held in October next, to which any student of an Inn of Court will be admissible who is desirous of passing the Final Examination, or of passing any one or more of the examinations in Part I. (Subjects I., II., III., IV.). At this examination the council may award to the student who passes the best examination in Subject II. (constitutional law, English and Colonial, and legal history), a special prize of £50, and a similar prize to the student who passes the best examination in Subject III. (criminal law and procedure). The council will not award the prize if the result of the examination be such as, in their opinion, not to justify the award. Where candidates appear to be equal, or nearly equal, in merit, the council may divide the prize between them equally, or in such proportion as they consider just.
Each student proposing to submit himself for examination will be required to enter his name in full, personally or by letter, at the treasurer's or steward's office of the Inn of Court to which he belongs, on, or before Monday, the 2nd Oct. next; and he will further be required to state in writing whether his object in offering himself for examination is to pass the Final Examination, or whether he is merely desirous of passing the examination in any one or more of the Subjects I., II., III., IV.

Mr. EDWARD DICEY, C.B.. died on the 7th inst. at 2, Gray's Innsquare. Mr. Dioey was born in 1832, and was the son of Mr. T. E. Dicey, of Clay brook Hall, Leicestershire, and elder brother of Professor A. V. Dicey, the Oxford jurist. He was educated at Trinity College, Cambridge, where he took honours in classics and mathematics. He took an active part in journalism, and was one of the first leader writers on the Daily Telegraph, on the staff of which he was permanently engaged in 1862, acting subsequently on more than one occasion as its special correspondent abroad. Among his colleagues on the staff of the paper when he joined it were Sir Edwin Arnold, the Hon. Frank Lawley, and George Augustus Sala. He was appointed editor of the Daily News in 1870, but did not hold the position long; in the same year he became editor of the Observer, and continued to conduct that paper until 1889. He was called by Gray's inn in 1875, and became a Bencher of his Ion in 1896, and Treasurer in 1903 and 1904. He wrote many books and articles on foreign affairs, and showed special interest in Egypt, the annexation of which he strongly advocated, and latterly also in South African affairs. His earliest books were Rome in 1860 and Cavour: A Memoir, both published in 1861. Later and better known works include England and Egypt (1884); Bulgaria, the Peasant State (1895); The Story of the Khedivate (1902); and The Egypt of the Future (1907). He received the C.B. in 1886. Mr. Dicey married, in 1867, Anne Greene Chapman, of Weymouth, Massachusetts, who died in 1878.
Mr. WILLIAM HENRY ATKINSON, solicitor and clerk to the Poor Law Guardians of the Whitehaven Union, died suddenly on the 31st ult. Mr. Atkinson served his articles with his uncle, was admitted in 1872, and afterwards entered into partnership in the firm, which then took the style of Atkinson, Son, and Collins. They had their office in Carter lane. Subsequently he took into partnership the late Mr. Ralph Bennett, and at the Union Hall the business was continued under the style of Atkinson and Bennett. Before the incorporation of the town, when the town clerk took over the duty for the mayor, Mr. Atkinson was for many years returning officer for the borough in Parliamentary elections, and these duties he always carried out with perfect impartiality and a courtesy which, as in everything else he had to do with, was always beyond reproach.

AT the Court at Buckingham Palace, the 5th day of July 1911, present the King's Most Excellent Majesty in Council :Whereas by an Order in Council, bearing date the 2nd day of Aug. 1910, certain arrangements as regards the circuits of the judges were approved :
And whereas it is expedient that the said order be amended on account of certain alterations which have been made in the arrangements for the transaction of civil business in various counties:
Now, therefore, His Majesty in Council is pleased to order and it is hereby ordered as follows:
The commission days for the several places on the respective circuits for the assizes to be hereafter holden shall, as far as may be practicable and the business to be done may allow, be fixed by the judges in manner heretofore accustomed in accordance with the scheme set out in the schedule hereto, but in fixing such commission days
(a) The order of towns may be changed on any circuit when it is desirable to prevent the assizes at any town being holden contemporaneously with special local events or for any other special reason, and
(b) The dates of the commission days named in the schedule for any town may be altered so as to provide for anticipated business, or the anticipated absence of business, but no alteration of the dates of such commission days which will diminish the number of judges in town at any period of the sittings shall be made without the consent of the Lord Chief Justice of England.
(c) It shall be lawful for the Lord Chief Justice from time to time, with the sanction of the Lord Chancellor, to direct that civil as well as criminal business shall be taken at any assize town on the autumn circuit in addition to those at which it is provided by the schedule to this order that civil as well as criminal business shall be taken.
(d) For the transaction of civil business at Liverpool and Manchester a judge of the King's Bench Division shall be assigned to take such business for each sitting of the High Court. The judge so assigned shall sit for the trial of civil actions at such times and shall hold such adjourned sittings at both such cities as shall be necessary to enable him to dispose so far as he conveniently can of all actions entered for trial at Liverpool not later than four weeks, and at Manchester not later than two weeks, before the last day of each sitting.
He shall also be at liberty, subject as herein provided, to sit at either or both of such cities before as well as after the commencement of each assize, and shall do so if the state of business so requires. Provided that he shall so far as possible sit at Liverpool and Manchester during the whole time that the judge taking criminal business is sitting there, and shall not unless it is unavoidable sit at either of such cities while assizes are being held at Appleby, Carlisle, or Lancaster.
The list of Liverpool and Manchester civil business shall be in charge of such assigned judge for each sittings. The judge holding a criminal assize at Liverpool and Manchester shall when not required for criminal busness assist as heretofore in the trial of civil actions whenever the sittings for civil business are being held during the time he is at Liverpool and Manchester.
At each assizee Liverpool shall be the first city and Manchester the second city. Provided that it shall be lawful for the Lord Chief Justice of England, by notice directed to the clerk of assize for the Northern Circuit, to direct that Manchester shall be the first and Liverpool shall be the second city for any judicial year commencing the 12th Oct.. Such notice shall be given not later the let July preceding the commencement of each judicial year and shall be published by the clerk of assize at Liverpool and Manchester and elsewhere in such manner as he shall think convenient for making the change publicly known.
The schedule to this order shall be substituted for the schedule to the Order in Council relating to circuits dated the 2nd Aug. 1910, and the said Order in Council shall take effect subject to the substitution made by this order, and any copy thereof hereafter printed may be printed with the substitution made by this order.
ALMERIC FITZROY. NOTE.-Where Sunday falls on a date different trom that which is noted in the schedule, commission days will have to be altered accordingly.
