sortery; he would have been cut off from his disciples, and he would have been delivered over to the civil power to be burned. In Tudor or Stuart reigns he would have been charged for high treason or blasphemy, browbeaten by the law officers prosecuting and scolded by the presiding judge as a pestilent nuisance in the State, and his last words before a cruel death might have been cut short or drowned in the roll of drums beneath the scaffold. Let them picture him coming before an English or a Scotch judge at the end of the eighteenth or the beginning of the nineteenth century--before Ellenborough, who tried Hone, or Braxfield, who tried Muir and Palmer; he would have been besla vered with pompous platitudes or subjected to coarse ribaldry, and his conviction would. have been certain.
If they conceived the great searcher of truth in the world to-day, his fate would be different. He would be the terror of the ordinary party politician, unscientific lawyers and writers subsisting by the facile handling of undefined concepts. They would hate and dread his heckling and the consequent depreciation of their verbal stock-in-trade. But he would not drink hemlock. He would be
explained ”-explained by those who did not understand himas impracticable and as an obstructive. He would not be perse(uted; he might be belittled. He would not be silenced by the State. But in a world noisy with many voices over little things, he might not have been heard. It was not certain that men to-day would understand, as his hostile judges did, that a great disruptive force had come into the world. He would not have perished by process of law. But his teaching would not have had the seal of martyrdom and his example its undying force. As Harnack said, it was not the living teacher, the unwearied searcher after truth, the supreme dialectician, it was the dying Socrates that spoke to posterity.—Times.
THE TRIAL OF SOCRATES. As Quain Professor of Comparative Law, Sir John Macdonell, C.B., gave on Wednesday last the first of a course of lectures at University College upon the chief systems of legal procedure as illustrated by certain trials.
Unfortunately, he said, no entirely complete report existed of any ancient trial. There was nothing corresponding to the Year Books or our reports. Generally, only one speech, and that by a partisan, was preserved. Let them conceive the task of unravelling the merits and issues in the trial of Warren Hastings solely from Burke's heated rhetoric, or the ideas of posterity as to the Parnell Commission if got only from Sir Charles Russell's speech.
Selecting first Socrates' trial, the lecturer disclaimed all intention of treating it except from a legal point of view. There was no class of permanent professional judges at Athens. Ancient democracy there did not know such, nor did ancient aristocracy at Rome. Every citizen above thirty was potentially a judge. With our population we worked with 75,000 jurymen; in Athens, with about 20,000 to 25,000 citizens and a free population of 100,000, they required 6000. Jefferson's idea of a judiciary elected and renewed at short intervals had been far surpassed. The Athenian people had taken the step which extreme modern democrats had sometimes threatened. The tribunal, 501 in number, was a big crowd. The trial resembled rather trial by the House of Commons --a paid House of Commons—than a jury of twelve. The indictment as preserved would have been bad, according to English or Scotch law, for want of particularity. In all probability the Apology did not give the speech as delivered. Great literature, none greater, it lacked the air of reality. To the question, was it a fair trial and was Socrates guilty ? there never could be one
Those who prized order and the safety of the State above all else would say it was a good and necessary deed. In the community were fears similar to those which sent Condorcet to the guillotine and led to the burning of Priestley's house amid shouts of “No philosophers; Church and State !
Had Socrates been tried elsewhere and at some other time he might have fared worse. Brought before an ecclesiastical court, as were Bruno and Campanella, he would have been tortured; he would have been subjected to repeated examinations and long confinement intended to break him down in body. On the strength of his belief in a demonic voice, he would have been charged with

Burgis), the subject for debate was : “ That the case of Lloyd v. Grare, Smith, and Co. (104 L. T. Rep. 789; (1911) 2 K. B. 489) was wrongly decided.” Mr. W. S.

Having graduated at London University in 1872, he continued in the same department till 1885, when he resigned on being elected as member of Parliament for South-West Bethnal Green. In the year preceding his election he had been called to the Bar by the Inner Temple, and henceforth he devoted himself to legal work, obtaining some practice as a Treasury counsel at the Old Bailey.

In 1885 he became senior manager. He served his articles under the firm, which had then taken the title of Botterell and Roche, and was admitted a partner in 1895. In Aug. 1903 the partnership was dissolved, and Mr. Wallace commenced practising for himself, his office being in West Sunniside, where he has carried on business up to the present time.

On Saturday last the report of the Royal Commission appointed to investigate the working of the Railway Conciliation and Arbitration Scheme of 1907 published its report, which was unanimous, and we have little doubt that the recommendations therein contained will commend themselves to all reasonable and fair-minded persons. Naturally, neither side obtained all they desired, but it is particularly unfortunate that certain persons, before they could have possibly digested the meaning of the report, publicly repudiated the findings and recommendations therein contained, and announ ved their determination to disregard its provisions There is no doubt that the scheme of 1907 and the machinery provided thereby with reference to the Conciliation Boards was faulty, and the complaints made by the men were shown to have good foundation. The commissioners, however, have submitted fresh proposals whereby the matters in dispute can be disposed of with more expedition, and in a way that should be satisfactory to all concerned.

On tbe question of recognition, it would seem that the commission has come to the only conclusion that was possible, apart from handing over to the trades unions the entire management of the railways. It is now conceded that the men may have as their secretary at the Conciliation Board, who may take part in discussions and act as advocate, any person they choose to select, even although he is not an employé of the railway in question, and, as in practice this man may be an official of the union, this amounts to recognition to this limited extent. On the other hand, however, the Conciliation Board will deal only with rates of wages, hours of labour, and conditions of service, and therefore neither the official of the union nor the board itself will have
