TO SUBSCRIBERS. The volumes of the Law Times and of the Law TIMES REPORTS, are strongly and

uniformly bound at the office, as completed, for 58. 6d. for the Journal, and 4s. 6d.

for the Reports. Portfolios for preserving the current numbers of the Law Times, price 58. 6d., by

post, 5d. extra. LAW TIMES REPORTS, price 3s, 6d., by post, 3d. extra.

NOTICE. The LAW TIMEs goes to press on Thursday evening, that it may be received in the remotest

parts of the country on Saturday morning. Communications and Advertisements mus be transmitted accordingly. None can appear that do not reach the office by Thursday

afternoon's post. When payment is made in postage stamps, not more than 58. may be remitted at one time.

Tue disposition to discourage the enforcement of the payment of debts by debtor's summonses is not peculiar to our own courts. A law similar to our bankruptcy law prevails in Australia, and in August last, before Judg Noel, an attempt was made to obtain payment of a balance of a large sum for building three shops. It was submitted that as there were disputes, the debt was not of the simple character to which a debtor's summons should alone be held applicable. “Where," said the learned Judge, “the amount of the claim was moderate, where the evidence was not complicated, and where there were scarcely any points of law to decide, resort might be had to the Insolvent Act; otherwise the cause should be tried in the ordinary way in a court of law."

CON TEN TS.

We need only mention the changes which have taken place in the law offices of the Government by the elevation of Sir R. COLLIER to the Bench. The promotion of Sir Joun COLERIDGE and the appointment of Mr. JESSEL are colourless events so far as the Profession is concerned. There was little to choose as regards professional eminence between the various members of the Bar who were considered eligible for the Solicitorship, and it was wholly improbable that the man to become Attorney-General, namely, Sir ROUNDELL PALVER, would be placed over the head of Sir John COLERIDGE. Under the circumstances, therefore, no better appointments could have been made.

The appointment of Sir Robert COLLIER to the Privy Council is one which is entirely satisfactory to the Profession, much more so indeed than his appointment as a successor of Lord PENZANCE would have been. When this last-named change was mentioned it occurred to us that Government gives too little attention to the peculiarities of men's experience on elevating them to the bench. The greatest probate and divorce lawyer we have should be naturally selected for the Probate and Divorce Court, wholly regardless of political considerations, and much as we should have been gratified by the well-earned promotion of Lord PENZANCE, we conceive that it was a fortunate escape for his court that his promotion did not take place at this particular juncture. The process by which Sir R. Collier has been elevated to the Privy Council is of no

WE so fully stated the gist of Mr. McLeod's cause of action against the Digest Commission at the commencement of the suit, that it appears to us to be unnecessary to report the proceedings before the Arbitrator (Mr. DENMAN). That learned gentleman is now considering his award, and apparently has but two points to consider : (1) whether the contract was terminable before the completion of the branch of the digest entrusted to Mr. McLEOD, and, if so, whether it was terminable withont notice; and (2) in the event of it being held that the contract was not arbitrarily determinable by the Commissioners, what damages ought to be awarded? As to the question of notice, the arbitrator intimated that he thought that the Commissioners were bound to give fair and reasonable notice of the termination of the work. He also asked the counsel for the Crown whether he considered that damage was sustained by Mr. McLeod in not having his name published as the author of a successful digest of the law ? Counsel, in reply, said there was nothing about that in the contract, the only questions were whether the contract had been properly terminated, or whether it had been broken, and if it had what was the market value of Mr. McLeod's services ? For the applicant it was argued that 5001. a year was not a fair remuneration ; but that he was entitled to be paid for a ye r and threequarters' work at the rate of 20001. or 30001. per annum. He also alleged that he had suffered for the loss of credit, reputation, and honour which he would have gained by having his name published on the specimen digest. A Commission has been appointed in Canada for investigating the state of legal procedure in Ontario, and amongst other things it is proposed to consider the advisability of a fusion of law and equity. The members of the commission are Judge Wilson, Judge GWYNNE, Vice-Chancellor STRONG, Judge Gowns and Mr. PATTERSON, Q.C. Mr. GWYNNE, it appears, was a pupil of the late Lord Justice Rout, and the Canaila Law Journal speaks in high praise of all the members--of this gentleman, that his intimate

The appellate business in the Court of Bankruptcy, if all we hear be truc, seems to be conducted in a most extraordinary manner. By the Rules under tho Act of 1869 power is given to the SENIOR Registrar in attendance to sit for the Chief JUDGE (R. 210) during the absence of the latter “from any reasonable cause.” The fact that the CHEF JUDGE is also a Vice-Chancellor is always a “ reasonable cause" for his absence, and hence his place is generally filled by the Senior REGISTRAR. But appeals lie from the decisions of the registrars to the Chief JUDGE, and the result frequently is,

knowledge of law and equity, practically as well as theoretically, especially fits him for the duty, and that he will enter upon it free from any supposed bias to either system. Of Vice-Chancellor STRONG, that no man is more competent to explain the theory and practice of that court which has been a witness to his intellectual power and great learning Of Judge Gowan—that he has long the confidence of, and given assistance to successive administrations in various ways, and has an increasing reputation, and that no one in Canada has a more intimate knowledge of the Division Court system, which is really the nearest approach at present to a fusion of law and equity; and that the reputation of Mr. PATTERson, at the Bar, is very high, that he is known to be a man with broad views of things, and of much learning and industry, and that he will be a most useful element in the commission. The Canadians are fortunate in having such men in their service.

common law, but within the district of the City of London Court if triable in Admiralty. And in the first place his Honour held that having regard to the above section, County Courts which have and those which have not admiralty jurisdiction, cannot exercise concurrent authority over the same class of cases. Then arose the question whether the cause was an "admiralty cause. Referring to the opinions of the Judges who decided Everard v. Kendall (22 L. T. Rep. N. S. 408), he observed that they expressed strong opinions--which, though obiter dicta, were entitled to weight --that the word "collision” in the Act of 1868 (sect. 3) means a collision between two ships. Mr. TAYLOR remarks upon the unsatisfactory nature of the arguments in Everard v. Kendall, the Bilboa (3 L. T. Rep. N. S. 338) being the only case cited, and the court being allowed to infer from that case that the Admiralty jurisdiction continued limited, as under the Admiralty Act of 1810, whereas the Malvina (6 L. T. Rep. N. S. 369) (affirmed in the Privy Council) decided that under the Admiralty Court Act of 1861 the Admiralty Court had the utmost extent of jurisdiction in cases of collision, and, as Mr. Taylor remarks, there is no reason why the County Court jurisdiction should be less extensive. That was a suit by a barge against a seagoing vessel, and on a plea being put in the jurisdiction, Dr. LUSHINGTON held that it must be struck out. The damage sustained in the case before Mr. Taylor having been inflicted by a yacht coming into collision with a row-boat, he held that the County Court had jurisdiction over the cause as an admiralty cause, and consequently that as the Woolwich court had not Admiralty jurisdiction, it should be tried in the City of London Court.

The prosecution of the attorney's clerk at Worship-street Police Court has terminated in his discharge. The charge, it will be remembered, was one of obtaining money by a false pretence, the pretence being that the defendant was an attorney's clerk. The merits of the case concern us little, but the conduct of the prosecution suggests some observations. We exonerate the solicitor whose clerk the defendant was said to be from desiring to do anything more than prove that he himself had no personal interest in the touting system. If he thought he had dismissed the clerk he can scarcely be considered responsible for the acts of the clerk after such supposed dismissal : and he was justified in instituting the prosecution if he believed that the clerk knew that he was dismissed. But from the line taken by the prosecuting counsel, and from the remarks made by Mr. HANNAY, it would seem that some attempt was made to drag into the inquiry the names of members of the Bar who had not the slightest connection with the subject matter. Such an attempt cannot be too severely condemned, and to bring out indirect charges against absent gentlemen who are unrepresented, even with the laudable view of checking irregular practices, is unfair, and savours of an unpleasant animus. But the attempt, if made, was unsuccessful, thanks to the firmness of the magistrate, and the clerk was discharged with the sanction of a silk gown. We must add, that it is very remarkable that not until one of Her Majesty's counsel was taken into the prosecution was it discovered that there was an ambiguity in the letter of dismissal. It is to be regretted that so important a point in the case was not attentively considered before the matter was brought before the public.

A DISCUSSION has been started in the medical press as to the future position of medical witnesses, or, as one journal expresses it, “ the relations of hospital surgeons to criminal law, and the moral position of medical witnesses.” A question was lately raised in a Crown prosecution in Dublin as to the admissibility of evidence to prove that a registered medical practitioner was not up to the proper educational standard. The CHIEF Baron gave judgment, which was in effect that evidence could not be received to show whether the operation was injudicious or not, but that evidence could be taken as to whether the operation was skilfully or unskilfully performed. The LORD CHEF Justice thought that evidence could not be taken either as to the judiciousness of the operation or the skilfulness of the modus operandi, but as when two judges differ the law leaned in favour of the prisoner, the LORD CHIEF BARon should rule the case. Consequently the surgeon who conducted the operation in question was put upon his trial, witnesses being called to give their view as to his possession of the needful qualifications, having regard to the way in which he had done his work. As Lord Chief Justice Bovill has said more than once in the Tichborne case “ it is better to admit than to exclude evidence,” and we are disposed to think that the LORD CHIEF BARON was right. The Medical Press and Circular sees no reason why “a medical man called upon for his opinion, on a given point, should hesitate to give full and faithful expression to it, because it might happen to be adverse to a mem• ber of his own profession.” It adds, “We are distinctly of opinion that reticence under such circumstances is an honourable quality, and we hope that when such emergencies arise, it will not be open to the public to say that personal pique or professional jealousy, or even political bias, have been served at the expense of our character for good fellowship and esprit de corps.”

On the 3rd inst. an important question was argued at the Kirkdale Quarter Sessions, before Lord DERBY, chairman of the county, Mr. Serjt. WHEELER, and other Justices, on an appeal by Mr. Hugu Cullen against a conviction of the appellant charging him with “having exposed in the Stanley cattle market, on the 14th Aug: last, certain cattle, the same being then and there affected with a certain contagious and infectious disease, to wit, the foot and mouth disease, contrary to the prohibition of the 57th section of the Contagious Diseases (Animals), Act 1869.” At the hearing in the court below, objection was taken by the attorney for the appellant to the jurisdiction of the justices to convict, on the ground that no summary jurisdisdiction to inflict penalties was contained in the Act. Counsel for the appellant urged the same objection. He argued that the 103rd section inflicted a penalty on persons guilty of an offence against the Act, but did not point out the method by which it was to be recovered, and there were no provisions in the Act declaring generally how, penalties were recoverable. The 4th section of the Act repealed all former Acts relating to the same subject. The 11 & 12 Vict. c. 107, the first Act, by the 8th section, expressly provided for the recovery of penalties in a summary manner. Three Acts relating to cattle diseases were passed in 1866: 29 & 30 Vict. cc. 2, 15, and 110; and one in 1867, 30 & 31 Vict. c. 125. In these Acts penalties are made recoverable on summary conviction under 11 & 12 Vict. c. 43 (Jervis's Act), ss. 30, 5, 10, 3, of the respective Acts. The omission of any such provisions in the present Act, implied it was argued, that the Legislature did not intend that the offence charged should be dealt with summarily, but that offenders should be proceeded against by indictment. “Justices could not acquire summary jurisdiction by implication, express words in a statute could alone confer it'; the 57th section, under which the conviction was made, enacted that any person exposing, &c., shall be deemed guilty of an offence against this Act, unless he shows to the satisfaction of the justices before whom he is charged that he did not know, &c. These words showed that it was the intention of the Legislature that the charge should be heard before some justices, but there was nothing to determine what justices were meant, how many were to act, whether they were to act at sessions or in a summary manner.

The 108th section gives a power of appeal to quarter sessions against any determination or adjudication of any justices with respect to any penalty, and it might be urged that this power impliedly conferred a jurisdiction on justices at petty sessions to inflict the penalties, but this appeal clause may be applicable to offences mentioned in the 104th section, for which justices have power to punish by imprisonment. Even if the justices had jurisdiction under the Act, they had no power to proceed under Jervis's Act for the penalties, as that Act did not apply to offences created by later statutes unless specially incorporated.”. Objection was also taken to the form of the particular conviction, as not being authorised by Jervis's Act, and bad on the face of it. For the respondents it was urged, that the Act would be nugatory unless the justices had the jurisdiction claimed, and that the intention of the Legislature to confer it sufficiently appeared from the language of sects. 57 and 108. A case of Reg v. Justices of Norwich was referred to, not to be found in any of the recognised reports, but a short report of it appeared in the Times of Feb. 1, 1870, where, no cause being shown, the court made absolute a rule nisi for a mandamus directing the justices to hear and determine a complaint under the 57th section of this Act. Mr. Justice BLACKBURN had, however, remarked, that the justices might get a short Act of indemnity passed as Parliament was about to open. After a very lengtheneck

Mr. Pitt Taylor, sitting at the Woolwich County Court, has had before him an important question relating to Admiralty jurisdiction, and in his judgment he has dealt somewhat roughly, but with no more roughness than was justifiable, with a case decided by the Common Pleas. In the first place he held that there could be no possible mistake as to sect. 5 of the Admiralty Jurisdiction Act 1868 (31 & 32 Vict. c. 71), which enacts that so soon as a County

Court is appointed to have Admiralty jurisdiction, "no County · Court other than the County Court so appointed shall have jurisdiction within that district in any admiralty cause.” The action before his Honour was brought to recover damages for a collision, and it was within the district of his court if triable at
