-JAUNDICE, DISORDERED LIVER-A good free flow of bile is absolutely necessary for

The former rubbed on the rigbt side over the region of the liver, upon which it exercises the most salatary in. fluence, without harassing the stomach or the bowels-inatter' frequently of vital importance-confers on this remedy an advantage over any other form of medicine in the pharmacopoeia. When assisted by the Pille etery disease is speedily subjected and effectunliy banished.

Social amenities are to be encouraged, and we do not know that there is any objection to a foreman of a jury in any particular case inviting his fellow jurors and the counsel for either one side or both in a cause to dinner, or any other gathering so thoroughly English. This event, as affecting a great case, is now over. A famous jury have celebrated the termination of their labours, and the triumph of truth over iniquity, in the companionshipof the members of the long robe who so effectually contributed to this happy termination, doubtless enjoying the strong contrast furnished by the present predicament of the author of their labours. It is not for us to approro or disapprove such proceedings. Out of court after a cause is over, counsel and juries are private individuals. Nevertheless, we do not consider the precedent a healthy one.

A róxt of practical importance was decided in the Rolls on Wednesday. It arose in Wood v. IVeightmun, a suit to render the estate of a deceased trustee liable for a breach of trust. For the defence it was stated that the executors of the deceased trustee had issued advertisements in accordance with Lord St. Leonards' Act, and afterwards distributed the estate without having had this claim brought to their knowledge. It appeared, however, that the advertisements had only been inserted in local newspapers, and that the time allowed for bringing in claims was three weeks. The court held that this was not sufficient, and declared the executors liable with the estate of the deceased trustee for the breach of trust. It would appear from this decision that executors cannot safely distribute the estate of their testator unless the statutory advertisements have been inserted in the Gazette, and at least one London daily paper as is done by the court in administration suits, and that a longer time than three weeks must be given for the sending in of claims.

On the subject of the Welsh-speaking Judges, a correspondent writes: “It may be accident, but it is the fact, that those persons who have been trained to speak Welsh either speak very bad or very turgid English, and turgid speech is evidence of


defective judgment. There has been no disregard of ability among Welsh barristers—Sir Joux NICHOLL, Sir J. JENNER, and Sir D. HARDING were all of them Glamorganshire men. The HOME SECRETARY, who was stipendiary magistrate at Merthyr, was born in the same county. Lord Justice JAMES, Mr. Justice Grove, and Sir WALTER MORGAN (India) are also Glamorganshire men. But the chairmen and vice-chairmen of quarter sessions and magistrates in Wales can rarely speak Welsh. The two stipendiary magistrates in Wales who do their work with public approval can neither of them speak Welsh. If County Court Judges were not paid, Welsh-speaking Judges would not be demanded. Only one side has as yet been heard, though the House of Commons has been asked by the HOME SECRETARY to place a restriction on judicial appointments hereafter to be made by the LORD CuanCELLOR."


379 The Appellate Jurisdiction

One of those ingenious efforts to make a loophole for escape from the law as to “ order and disposition” was discussed lately in Lean v. Carrick. Holders of bills of sale are so numerous, and have such a love for little evasions of the law, that the case is worth special attention. The plaintiff purchased the furniture of a person named Michell from the sheriff, and took an ordinary bill of sale. He did not register, nor did he remove the furniture from Michell's house. During the whole time, however, that the furniture remained at Michell's some member of the plaintiff's family -wife or daughter-lived in the house also. In 1869 Michell became bankrupt, and the question that came before the Court on Monday was whether the presence of a member of the plaintiff's family in Michell's house with the furniture was sufficient possession to take it out of the bankrupt's order and disposition. The Court held that it was not. Colourable possession could scarcely be carried further than in this case, and it is satisfactory to have a decision which helps so much to define the vague line between possession of the mortgagee and the order and disposition of the mortgagor, but it is a pity the bill of sale was unregistered, for otherwise we might have had a much more valuable decision.

The public is prone to consider that the huge cost of the Ticu. BORNE trial goes intact into the pockets of the lawyers. As far as counsel are concerned we believe we may state that the fees paid by the defence constitute somewhat less than one-fifth of the expenditure. The ATTORNEY-GENERAL, we learn, received, 60001., Mr. HAWKINS, Q.C., rather more than 50001., and so

on in proportion.

VOL. LII.-No. 1511,

Apropos of the TICHIBORNE case the Spectator says, Suppose that, whenever a suit was pronounced flagitious, both by the Judge who tried it and the jury, and another Judge with reports of the evidence before him, the suitor received the same penalty as if he had perjured himself, would justice be materially endangered, or only legal profits ?” Both-justice far more than the profits. The Legislature has gone as far as it can in ordering security for costs to be given in certain cases; and it would be impossible to go further. A good illustration on this point is afforded by the trial of election petitions. The last statute enacts that regard is to be bad by the Judge to the disallowance of any costs, charges, or exrenses which may, in the opinion of the court or Judge, have been caused by vexatious conduct, unfounded allegations, or unfounded objections on the part either of the petitioner or the respondent.” Baron Martin, however, in the Norwich case, declined to regard vexation as an element to be considered in the apportionment of costs. This obviously is not on all fours, but it indicates the limit to which Parliament is inclined to go in such matters, and the temper of the Judges in carrying the legislation into effect; and we repeat that we consider that it is not possible to enact a penal statute of the nature indicated by our contemporary.


augmented in intensity by so sweeping an alteration in the law of bankruptcy as was effected by the Act of 1869. We have endea. voured to follow and comment on the salient points cropping up from time to time in the above-mentioned controversy, as a reference to our numerous articles on “Execution Creditors in Bankruptcy” will testify, and we propose now shortly to summarise the results recently arrived at by the appellate courts on some of the more important questions. We take the following points to be now settled :-First, that where the sheriff seizes before an act of bankruptcy, the title of the tion creditor will prevail over that of the trustee in bank. ruptcy, although there may be no sale prior to the adjudication : (Slater v. Pindler, 24 L. T. Rep. N. S. 631, affirmed in Ex. Ch. 6th Feb. 1872, “ Notes of the Week,"17th Feb. 1872; Ex parte Rocka; Re Hall; 25 L. T. Rep. N. S. 287.) This point is subject to the exception presently stated, when the execution is for a sum exceeding £50 upon the goods of a trader. Secondly, that the merr delivery of the writ to the sheriff is not equivalent to seizure, and does not bind the goods of the debtor so as to prevent them from passing to the trustee in bankruptcy : (Ex parte IIilliams; 1 Davies. Lords Justices, .7th inst.) Thirdly, that when the goods of a trader are seized in execution for a sum exceeding £50, and no sale has been effected, the trustee in bankruptcy has a complete equitable title under sect. 87, of the Act of 1869, and that an order, under sect. 13, requiring the sheriff to give up possession will be sustained : (E.c parte Raymer; Re John801, 2, W. R. 397, affirmed by Lords Justices, 7th inst.; sce “Notes of the Week" to-day-Ct. of App. in Chan.) Fourthly, that since the passing of the Act of 1861, an assignment of all a man's available property to one of his creditors in consideration of a past debt is an act of bankruptcy, whether he be a trader or not; and, that since the passing of the Act of 1869, such an assignment is by construction of law fraudulent within sect. 6, sub-sect. 2, of that Act : (Ex parte Lückes; R: Woodl. Lords Justices, 16th Feb. 1872; “Notes of the Week,” 24th Feb. 1872.)

Some of the American States are ahead of us in reforming the law of evidence, and there would appear to be a prevailing disposition to make defendants in criminal cases competent, though not compellable, to give evidence. It would seem that so early as 1859, the State of Maine passed an Act enabling the defendant in any criminal prosecution for libel, nuisance, and simple assault and battery, to offer himself as a witness; and in 1863 the law as to the admission of testimony was further extended, and it was further enacted that “in the trial of any indictments, complaints or other proceedings against persons charged with the commission of crimes or offences, the person so charged, shall, at his own request, and not otherwise, be deemed a competent witness, the credit to be given to his testimony being left solely to the jury under the instruction of the court." A bill has now been introduced into the State Senate of Pennsylvania, by which it is proposed to enact, that in the trial of any indictment, complaint or other proceeding against any person or persons charged with the commission of crimes or offences, any person so charged, shall, at his or her own request, and not otherwise, be deemed a competent witness; the credit to be given to such testimony being left solely to the jury, under the instruction of the court. The Act is not to extend to the trial of any person or persons on an indictment charging a capital offence.



Two decisions on questions as to costs under the Lands Clauses Act have recently been given in the Rolls. One, Re Carney's Trusts, about a fortnight ago, and the other Earl Ferrers v. Stafford and Ittoxeter Railway Company on Monday last. The points involved are novel and worth noting. In Carney's Trusts the question was comparatively simple. It was whether a railway company is bound to pay the costs of an attempt to reinvest in land a fund paid into court as the purchase money of land taken for the purpose of the undertaking, when the new purchase has fallen through, owing to the rendor being unable to deduce a good title. The court decided that as no blame could be attached to the persons interested in the fund, the company must pay the costs. This decision simply cnlarges the meaning of costs in sect. 80 of the Act, but not more than might have been expected. The point raised by Lord FERRERS was, however, much more novel and important. It appeared that in 1864 the railway company took possession of a portion of the Earl's settled estates under an agreement that the amount of compensation should be settled by a surveyor. £9887 was awarded accordingly, and duly paid into court in 1865. The usual order was afterwards obtained from the court for reinvestment, and directing the company to pay all the costs in accordance with the Act. No steps were however taken to enforce payment of the surveyor's costs until 1867, when the company had become insolvent. Subsequently a bill was filed praying for a declaration that Lord FERRERS was entitled to a lien on the land, and to the rights of an unpaid vendor in respect of the surveyors and arbitrator's costs, and for a direction that if necessary for payment a sale should be made. The Master OF THE Rolls, however, held that though it was quite clear that under the 34th section of the Act the company was liable for these costs, yet they could not be enforced by such a bill as had been filed. It will be seen that the interests affected by this decision are much wider than landowners and companies. if such a bill as that filed by Lord FERRERS would lie, a vendor of land would be able to take precedence of all the company's simple contract creditors, a right which would be especially serious just now, when the ordinary powers of enforcing debts have been so much curtailed. Where the debtor is a railway company, such a right as that claimed in the bill would thus be most detrimental to ordinary creditors, while it could only be useful to vendors of land in cases where they allowed costs to stand over for a long period. The provisions of sect. 80 of the Lands Clauses Act have always been found quite sufficient for enforcing payment of costs when ordinary diligence is used.

The Bill to legalise marriage with the sister of a deccased wife, introduced by the COMMON SERJEANT of London and Mr. MORLE), was read a second time in the Commons on the 21st ult. by : majority of forty-eight. It is identical with that thrown out by the Lords last session, a copy of which will be found LAW TIES vol. 1., p. 398. The debate was particularly mengre, the subject having been exhausted by the discussions of more than twenty years. We have on former occasions expressed our convictiou that the balance of expediency is in favour of a removal of the prohibition of these marriages. So long as the persons who contract these unions, which, but for the prohibition would be marriages, and the offspring of such unions, are generally regar led by society rather as the victims of a harsh law. than as real delinquent:. so long, as it appears to us, will the present hard and fast rule of prohibition be injurious and indefensible. It is an utter delusion to suppose that the sister of a deceased wife can, under the safeguard of the prohibition and by virtue of it, take the charge of a widower's household and of his motherless children. on a footing similar to that of a sister by blood. A sister and a sister-in-law stand in relationships totally distinct, let churches or legislatures say or decree as they will. The common intellect clearly discerns that the sanctities which fence and guard the relations of brother and sister do not extend to those of brother-in-law and sister-in-law. We are convinced that the very prohibition itself must in many cases operate as a delusion

snare by leading the parties into false positions, and lulling them and their friends into a false sense of security in the vain idea that the impossibility of legal union wil be a sufficient guarantee that brother-in-law and sister-in-law will regard each other as brother and sister, and behave according?y. Not uncommonly, it is well known, this expectation is falsified by the event, for nature has no respect for legal or other fictions, and the result is a marriage in fact though not in lawr, entailing on the woman the precarious status of a concubine, and on the children the stigma and other penalties of bastardy. The “natural protector argument, though specious, appears to us almost as imbecile as the “wife's jealousy" argument. The onus quid bandi is on those who forge fetters to infringe upon natural liberty, and in our judgment they have not made out their case in the present instance. We adhere to the views expressed on this subject Law TIMES vol. 1. p. 393, and think that sooner or later, but we hope sooner-for in common with most other people we are heartily sick and tired of the subject-our own Legislature will have to follow in the wake of that of our South Australian colony, where these marriages are now legalised. Before parting with the subject we desire again most emphatically to call the attention of Parliament, and of the Profession, to the fact that the Bill, as it stands, would have the effect of joining together in marriage, nolentibus volentibus, many persons who, having gone through a ceremony declared by Lord LYNDHURST's Act to be void. have fulfilled their duty as citizens by separating. It is absolutely necessary, if a great piece of Legislative folly and wickedness is not to be perpetrated, for the Act to provide that, where the parties are both living, no retrospective validity shall be given to the

It cannot be considered any subject for wonder that internecine conflicts of opinion should arise between particular creditors and particular assigns, each fighting for his own hand, and obtaining judgment and execution or possession for his own private behoof, and the general body of creditors, or their assignee, trustee, or other representative, claiming under the statutory form of execution known as an adjudication in bankruptcy. Such conflicts would, in the nature of things, be common enough at all times and under any code, but are of course multiplied in number and
