LAW SOCIETIES.

MANCHESTER.

THE annual meeting was held in the Law Library on Monday, the chair being occupied by the president, Mr. W. H. Foyster. There were also present Messrs. A. Tarbolton, F. A. Padmore, C. J. E. Crosse, G. E. Pollitt, A. E. Ferns, R. Claye, W. J. Anderson, C. F. Morgan, W. Harrison, S. Ackerley, M. A. Hall, G. H. Charlesworth, E. Chatham, W. H. Norton, M. J. Riley, C. T. Tallent-Bateman, J. McDonald, S. H. Seville, J. F. Milne, E. Farrington, E. Hewitt, J. A. Bland, F. Megson, J. B. Parkinson, and A. Whitworth. The committee, in their annual report, regret that no steps have yet been taken to relieve the congestion in the Manchester and Salford County Courts, and report that the president and hon. secretary had had an interview with Sir Kenneth Muir Mackenzie at the House of Lords in February last, and had strongly urged the necessity of some action being taken. They were informed that the Lord Chancellor fully understood the position of affairs, but that there were difficulties which up to that time he had not been able to surmount. With regard to the Salford Hundred Court of Record, the committee had requested the Chancellor of the Duchy to extend the jurisdiction of the court to claims not exceeding £100, and had received the support of the Manchester Corporation and the Chamber of Commerce. The committee_report_with pleasure that the hon. secretary of the society, Mr. C. J. E. Crosse, had been appointed registrar of the High Court of Justice, Manchester District Registry. On his retirement from the office of hon. secretary, the society recorded its gratitude to him for his faithful and valuable services and its appreciation of his useful and arduous work on behalf of the Profession, and presented various pieces of silver to him and a pendant to Mrs. Crosse. The committee regret the death of Vice-Chancellor Leigh Clare, and express their high appreciation of his work as Vice-Chancellor of the County Palatine of Lancaster and of the good feeling which had invariably characterised his dealings with the Profession. During the year Lord Granard had introduced a new Bankruptcy Bill, the provisions of which had been carefully considered by the committee and suggestions made in connection therewith. There were grave difficulties in adopting for legislation the proposition of the Manchester Chamber of Commerce that a firm as an entity might be made bankrupt. It would introduce a principle hitherto unknown to the law of bankruptcy in England, and substantial obstacles would present themselves to its application in practice. Unless sect. 4 of the Bankruptcy Act 1883, which defined the various acts of bankruptcy, were extended and adopted, there would be a difficulty in finding an act of bankruptcy committed in England by a debtor abroad upon which to found a petition. The adoption of the report was moved by Mr. W. H. Foyster, seconded by Mr. C. T. TallentBateman.

With

The president, Mr. W. H. Foyster, said that as the annual report sufficiently recorded the work and labours of the committee during the past year, he did not propose to go over it in greater detail. There were, however, one or two matters of special importance to which he would like to call attention. regard to the new arrangements for the sittings of the High Court in Manchester and Salford, they had occupied the attention of the committee for a long period and had entailed a considerable amount of work; but if the scheme now embodied in the new

[ocr errors]

Order in Council was carried out by the judges in the same spirit in which the negotiations were conducted by Mr. Justice Bray and Mr. Justice Pickford, he believed that their efforts would result in the solution of a long-standing difficulty, provided that the Government would do their part in appointing sufficient judges to do the work. A matter of great importance to the Profession was the question of land transfer. It had been revived during the past year, and would, he believed, occupy a considerable amount of time and attention during the coming year. The Profession as a whole agreed to the proposition that the public interests would be best served by legislation directed towards the simplification and improvement of conveyancing by assimilating the law of real and personal property. If present indications meant anything, the further question of the extension of land registration was imminent and would be dealt with by the Government at an early date, and, in his opinion, the Legal Profession would be acting wisely in giving a lead towards evolving a workable and convenient system of registration in conjunction with the assimilation of the law of real and personal property. For this reason he believed the scheme of registration of absolute ownership with entries of caution, as proposed by the Law Society, to be a convenient and practicable proposition to take the place of the present system which was universally condemned by everybody who understood it and which the Royal Commission had found imperfect and could not recommend an extension. In view of the mistaken views of the public as to the attitude of the Legal Profession in this matter, it could not, in his opinion, be too often proclaimed that they, who rightly claimed a special knowledge of this subject, not only did not oppose a workable and useful system of land registration, but, on the contrary, were willing to place their services and their special knowledge at the disposal of those who wished to simplify and improve the transfer of land. The principal event of personal interest in the past year had been the appointment of their late hon. secretary to the office of district registrar of the High Court, an appointment which was at once gratifying to his personal friends and eminently satisfactory to the Profession. He was succeeded by Mr. Frank A. Padmore, who had the best wishes of all in his new rôle, and who they had reason to believe would be a worthy follower of Mr. Crosse.

The following officers were elected for the ensuing year: President, Mr. A. Tarbolton; vice-president, Mr. J. McDonald; hon. treasurer, Mr. J. F. Milne; hon. secretary, Mr. F. A. Padmore.

TO ASSIGN

12. WAR OFFICE CONTRACTS-CONDITION AS MENT. In sending out his tenders to contractors, the Secretary of State for War imposes a condition which runs as follows: "Payment will be made monthly direct to the contractor, or to an agent or attorney duly authorised to received payment by the contractor in writing or by a revocable power of attorney. The Secretary of State for War will not recognise any assignment, other than is before mentioned, of moneys due or to become due under this contract, and neither sect. 25 (6) of the Judicature Act 1873 nor sect. 28 (6) of the Supreme Court of Judicature (Ireland) Act 1877 shall apply to this contract nor to moneys due or to become due thereunder.' I should be glad to know if such a condition is binding upon an assignee of the debt due to the contractor from the War Office. If so, what law enables the Secretary of State for War to exempt himself from sect. 25 (6) of the Judicature Act? G. B. PARKer.

THE ARTS OF

Writing, Reading, & Speaking.

By the late

EDWARD W. Cox,

Berjeant-at-Law and Recorder of Portsmouth;

The Seventh Thousand of the Third Edition of this work having been for some time exhausted, the publisher feels that he need offer no apology for issuing the Eighth. The great favour which former editions have received at the hands of the public generally, and schools in particular, proves that the utility of the work is now fully recognised. Though all previous editions were published at 78. 6d, this new issue is 38. 6d. net only, in order to keep pace with the present custom of cheaper prices for standard works.
