168. as the judge said, but £2 9s. out of pocket, and in addition he would have to pass through the ordeal of an interview with Mr. Commissioner Kerr, the prospects of which may well be sufficient to frighten many plaintiffs from the City Court to the Mayor's Court over the way. I say nothing of the remarks upon the profession of attorneys, but beg to subscribe myself ONE OF THEM.

REPEAL OF ATTORNEYS' CERTIFCATE DUTY. -I was pleased to see the following lines in the last number of the LAW TIMES: "We think in view of recent legislation, that Mr. Disraeli, with his large surplus, may well relieve solicitors from the payment of the annual certificate duty, and the claim ought to be advanced by our representatives in the House." I cannot see why the attorneys should pay an annual certificate duty and members of the clerical and medical professions pay none. I would not wish to have it wholly repealed, but a part taken off, and that part (if Her Majesty's Government cannot afford to lose it) be put on the other two professions above-mentioned in equal proportions. If the leading members of our Profession were to take up this matter with a determination to get it modified it would be done; but as this annual payment to them is a matter of so little importance, they are supine in the matter, in fact, do not wish to have it modified or repealed, under the idea that it keeps the Profession respectable. How is it the other two professions are kept respectable without it? Do, Mr. Editor, kindly use your powerful pen, and assist us in this matter, and you will deserve and earn the thanks of our Profession in general, and those who are barely earning a living and cannot afford to pay the tax (and there are hundreds of them) in particular. If you will kindly give this a place in your next paper you will much oblige your old subscriber,

SECURITY FOR COSTS-31 & 32 VICT. c. 54.-In your impression of the 14th inst., you state that "in one case it was held that plaintiffs resident in Scotland and Ireland cannot be compelled to give security for costs, the 31 & 32 Vict. c. 54 having provided a process of enforcing an English judgment in those countries. This was the case of Raeburn v. Andrews in the Queen's Bench on the 29th ult." As some misapprehension may exist as to whether this Act is applicable to the inferior courts of record in England, you will kindly allow me to state that is still necessary that security for costs should be taken in all the inferior courts, the 31 & 32 Vict. c. 54 only applying to judgments obtained in the courts at Westminster. The judgments of the inferior courts can certainly be removed to, and be made the judgments of, the Superior Courts, but subject to certain restrictions. 19 & 20 Vict. c. 108, s. 49, provides the following for judgments obtained in the County Court: "If a judge of a Superior Court shall be satisfied that a party against whom judgment for an amount exceeding £20 exclusive of costs has been obtained in a County Court has no goods or chattels which can conveniently be taken to satisfy such judgment, he may, if he shall think fit, or on such terms as to costs as he may direct, order a writ of certiorari to issue to remove the judgment of the County Court into one of the Superior Courts, and when removed it shall have the same force and effect and the same proceedings may be had thereon as in the case of a judgment of such Superior Court; but no action shall be brought upon such judgment." Pollock and Nicol, in their County Court Practice, 7th edit., p. 167, state that the above provision can only be exercised by a plaintiff where a defendant has no goods. The defendant, then, if the case be tried in the County Court, has no remedy against the plaintiff on his judgment if resident out of England, and if no security has been taken by the registrar the costs will have to be sued for and proved in the court where the action is brought, as an action will not lie on a judgment obtained in a County court: (3 Bl.

65. POWERS OF ADMINISTRATRIX.-A., who was pos sessed of some freehold property, died intestate, leaving a widow and three children (minors) him surviving. At the time of his death A. owed several sums of money, and his widow, who has taken out letters of administration, is desirous of selling the property, in order to satisfy the intestate's debts. Will any of the nistratrix can sell and convey without the necessity of readers of the LAW TIMES inform me if the admi

66. TRESPASS.-A. is the lessee of certain property upon which his house stands; he underlets one field, a portion of the said property, to B., at a yearly rent. While this field is in B.'s possession a third person, who is building a row of houses on a plot of land next to the field, drives his carts along the latter, and, in fact, makes it a thoroughfare, much to the annoyance of A., whose dining-room window overlooks the field. What remedy has A., and against whom? Cases would oblige.




MANCHESTER INCORPORATED LAW THE annual general meeting of the members of the association was held on the 19th Jan, last, at Cross-street Chambers, when an account of the receipts and disbursements (previously audited by two of the members), was submitted and passed, and the officers and committee were elected for the ensuing year.

The legislation of the session, though comprising
comparatively few Acts of interest to the Profes-
sion, is rendered memorable both to lawyers and
the public by the passing of

mothers as regards the custody of their infant children. It empowers the Court of Chancery to order that a mother may have access to, or the custody of, her children under the age of sixteen, and legalises an agreement in a separation deed for the mother to have the custody of her infant children. It repeals the Act 2 & 3 Vict. c. 54.

Intestates' Widows and Children Act (36 & 37 Vict. c. 52).-This Act enables the widow or children of an intestate, where the estate does not exceed £100 in value, and if residing more than three miles from a registry of the Court of Prothe registrar of the County Court of the district bate, to obtain letters of administration through where the intestate had his fixed abode, for a small scale of fees.

Professional Remuneration.-A joint committee of the Incorporated Law Society and the Metropolitan and Provincial Law Association having been appointed with a view of framing a scale of charges which should be generally approved by the Profession, a circular letter was issued by them to each of the Provincial Law Societies, referring to the scale prepared in 1871 by the Incorporated Society, and to that agreed on about the same time by the law societies of Manchester, Liverpool, Birmingham, Newcastle-on-Tyne, and Worcester, and requesting information as to the experience of the Profession in regard to the two scales. Your committee, after carefully considering the subject, replied to the effect that in their opinion a scale of commission requires legislative or judicial sanction for general adoption, that the London scale of 1871 was so high as to be altogether impracticable in the country, and that the scale recommended by the provincial societies is also, if anything, too high in large transactions. They suggested the omission of the second column of the provincial scale, with a view to simplicity and reduction on large amounts, but in other respects upheld the provincial scale, and its separation of negotiation from conveyancing charges, and its principle of giving a smaller fee to the vendor's solicitor than to that of the purchaser. The London societies subsequently submitted the draft of the revised scale which has since been adopted by them. This scale, though vincial societies, especially in the adoption of a approaching more nearly to that of the profee to the vendor's solicitor of three-fourths only, of that of the purchaser's solicitor, your committee consider it still too high for adoption in this district. A revision, in some respects, of the provincial societies' scale is under their consideration.

Organisation of the Profession.-An important step towards the better representation of the Profession has been taken during the past year by The Supreme Court of Judicature Act (36 & 37 the Incorporated Law Society in obtaining a sup Vict. c. 66).—The principle of this Bill, the provi-plemental charter, by virtue of which the council sions of which are now too generally known to now consists of forty ordinary members, elected need recapitulation, was based by the Lord Chan- by proxy (of whom ten are solicitors practising in cellor on a judicious carrying out of the well-con- the provinces), and ten extraordinary members, sidered recommendations contained in the first elected annually by the council from the presidents report of the Judicature Commission for the of provincial law societies.

By means of the united action of the Associated Northern Provincial Law Societies the attention of many other law societies was called to the Bill, and observations were drawn up from time to time, in reference to the District Registry, members of Parliament.

The Council of the Incorporated Law Society have approved the scheme, and undertaken to award the medal, of which the design has been approved, and the dies are now being made, so that the prize may be open to competition during the present year.

Point of Practice-Conditions of Sale. The Kent Law Society having asked for the opinion of your committee as to the propriety or impropriety of certain conditions of sale stipulating or offering inducement to a purchaser to employ the vendor's solicitor to prepare the conveyance, your committee replied that such a practice was unusual in this neighbourhood that your association had not experienced the necessity of making any rule on the subject, but that as an association we should object to any stipulation of the kind being inserted in conditions of sale.


Prize for Essay on the Law of Tenure.-The prize of £7 7s. in books, given by Mr. Davies, for the best essay on the " History and Law of Tenure of Real Property," was awarded by your committee to Mr. Alfred Wallis, of Bluepits, an articled clerk of Mr. William Scott, of Rochdale.

well known cases of Mather v. Frazer, and Boyd
v. Shorrock, mortgages comprising trade fixtures
have not usually been registered. Your committee
came to the resolution that it was desirable to
obtain an Act of Parliament for the purpose-
First, of giving to the holders of such mortgages
the opportunity of registering them within a time
to be limited after the passing of the Act; and,
next, to provide that future mortgages compris-
ing trade fixtures should be declared to be within
the provisions of the Bills of Sale Act, no matter
what might be the tenure of the property to
which they were attached. A deputation from
your committee waited upon the then Attorney
General (now Chief Justice Coleridge) to bespeak
his aid in carrying out this resolution, which he
promised to give in the ensuing session, but said
it was too late to enter upon the matter in the
last session. Your committee also put them-
selves in communication with the Chamber
of Commerce, who promised their support
to a Bill to carry out these views. In
July last, the case Ex parte Daglish, re Wilde,

County Court Changes.-Your committee finding that it was again proposed to transfer Mr. Russell from Manchester to Liverpool, and to make further changes in the circuits in and about Manchester, appointed a deputation, which in company with deputations from the Corporation of Manchester and the Chamber of Commerce, was received by the Lord Chancellor, and the representations then made induced his Lordship to abandon the intention of removing Mr. Russell, and to determine to make no change at present in the Lancashire Circuits.

New County Court.-Your committee have much pleasure in reporting that the numerous representations made by your association and other public bodies, as well as by the judge and officials of the court, regarding the inadequate accommodation for the increasing business of the Manchester County Court, have at length taken effect. Your committee lately received a letter from the First Commissioner of Works stating that the Government had under consideration the question of providing a New County Court, and requesting an expression of their views before he finally decided on a site. To this communication a reply has been sent urging the importance of a central situation. Details of the accommodation required for the public and the Profession were also given, and the hope expressed that the future requirements of a rapidly increasing mercantile district would not be overlooked.

The following gentlemen were elected the officers

THE first annual meeting of the Barristers' Bene-
volent Association was held on Friday afternoon,
Benchers, at the Hall of the Middle Temple.
the 13th inst., by the kind permission of the

It will be remembered that this association was called into existence at a meeting of the Bar in the Middle Temple Hall on 10th Jan. 1873, and its object "is to afford assistance to necessitous and deserving members of the English Bar, special pleaders, and conveyancers, their widows and children."

The rules of the association prepared by the committee appointed at the first meeting were submitted to and finally settled by a subsequent meeting of the Bar, over which Sir John Coleridge presided.

The Hon. Sec. (Mr. Macrory) opened the proceedings by reading the notice convening the meeting; and in the report which he submitted to the meeting it showed that the general committee had opened lists for donations and subscriptions, and made appeals to the Profession, which resulted in donations to the end of 1873 amounting to £2035 15s. (received and promised), and in annual subscriptions amounting to £479. Of this sum nearly £200 had been devoted to the grant or assistance in cases which the committee, after careful examination, considered deserving. The report went on to state that the benevolent operations of the association during the first year of its existence had been limited in their scope, owing to the uncertainty felt by the committee as to the funds actually at their disposal, and it added that several urgent applications for relief were at present under their consideration.

The Chairman, in moving that the report be

printed and circulated, said that it was not necessary for him to address the meeting at any length, for the association was now upon its legs, and, he hoped, regularly formed; and he trusted that it would continue to increase in power and influence. (Hear, hear.) From what had reached him quite recently he was sure that there were cases in the Profession which urgently called for relief of the kind the association proposed to give, to be administered by persons who could fully estimate the real need of their common charity. There were many instances which had reached him which, but for the stepping in of friends of the Profession, owing to the delicacy and feeling which actuated those who needed help, would have led to the most melancholy and miserable results which words could not describe. A great friend of his own-a person of considerable position and distinction-was brought, by no fault of his own, exceedingly low. Being a gentleman, delicacy stopped him from making known his position, and his case would have led to disastrous results had not attention been called to his condition. In cases of this kind an association such as the present one was of the greatest value, and what one man did not know of the condition of necessitous members another did; and if the committee were properly formed, they would find that such lamentable results as he had suggested would be avoided. He for one had never found that where there was any real need for charitable relief, the hearts and purses were shut against the Profession. (Hear, hear.) But it often happened that among those who were the least successful cases of distress and abject poverty frequently occurred of which they were not aware, and it would be the duty of the association to find such cases out. With regard to the financial condition, he was glad to find that an exceedingly small sum was spent in the working of the association, the expenditure being very moderate; and to the hon. secretary (Mr. Macrory), who had devoted his time and attention for nothing, they owed a deep debt of gratitude. (Applause.) He regretted, however, that many of the subscribers were in arrears, and he trusted that steps would shortly be taken to draw in money by means of a printed circular to be sent round to the defaulters. In conclusion, he said that he was glad to think that the associa tion had now been successfully begun, and he only trusted that year by year they would have larger funds to dispose of to those who sorely wanted them. (Loud cheers.)

Mr. Edlin, in seconding the resolution, hoped that the circulation of the report would be substantially conducive to the good of this associa tion.

The motion was then carried.

Mr. Manisty, Q.C. said that with regard to the arrears that might be in some respect due to a delicate feeling which prompted the committee not to apply for the money, but that difficulty would in future be removed; and they might anticipate good results from a new collector who had lately been appointed. There was not the slightest reason to fear but that the money would be quickly got in, for the Profession had come forward more unanimously and earnestly than it had ever done before, and he ventured to hope that the donations would be largely increased, as well as the number of annual subscribers.

The Attorney-General deplored the abstention

of the common law judges from all participation in the operations of the society, and urged the noble president to use his influence with his brethren on

the bench in their behalf.

The Chairman said that he could not understand why the judges as a body had not contributed to the funds of the association, and he promised that its claims should be fully made known to them, for he had never found that they would shut their hearts or their pockets against any reasonable claim. (Cheers.)

The Solicitor-General then proposed a vote of thanks to the Benchers of the Middle Temple for the use of the hall, which was carried.

The committee of management and the auditors were also appointed, and votes of thanks were awarded to the officers of the association in general, and in particular to Lord Coleridge, for his services in the cause, he also consenting to act as one of the trustees for the current year. The proceedings then terminated.

LEGAL EDUCATION ASSOCIATION. WE are asked to remind our readers that contributions in aid of the funds of this association may be sent to the honorary treasurer, Mr. J. M. Clabon, 21, Great George-street, Westminster, or they may be paid into the account of the association at the Temple Bar branch of the London and Westminster Bank. The success of this association, having in view the accomplishment of the most important objects, is due in a large degree to the undeviating and consistent support given to it by the present Lord Chancellor; and it will indeed be most fortunate if, with the

resignation by Baron Amphlett of the post of president, and the resignation of the Government, Lord Selborne could be again induced to place himself at the head of the association.


WE are requested by the Honorary Secretary of this Society to say that meetings of the Parlia. mentary committee were held on the 19th and 26th Jan. last, and the 9th and 16th Feb. inst., resulting in the framing of a Bill which will be introduced into the House of Commons, having for its object the protection of the Profession against the depredations of unqualified persons.

contrived to gain the friendship and respect of all
parties. He was an active, straightforward, honest
citizen, and as a public officer served the town faith-
fully and uprightly for more than a quarter of a
century, winning the esteem and affection of his
fellow townsmen, as the testimonial presented to
him a short time back on his retirement from
public life amply testified. Mr. Stone will be CADE, JOSEPH, draper, York. Pet. Feb. 10. Feb. 27, at three, at

always welcome at any public gathering, and he
had ever a kind word for those with whom he
came in contact. Affable and amiable to a
degree he made no enemies, and has died respected
by all. His example is one which other citizens
may profitably imitate." Mr. Stone married in
1829 Catharine Smart, daughter of Benjamin
Fowler, Esq., by whom he has left a family of six
children. The remains of the deceased gentleman
were interred in the Leicester Cemetery, the
funeral being a public one, attended by the mayor,

The exorbitant items of the undertaker's bill have long operated as an oppressive tax upon all classes of the community. With a view of applying a remedy to this serious evil the LONDON NECROPOLIS COMPANY, when opening their extensive cemetery at Woking, held themselves prepared to undertake the whole duties relating to interments at fixed and moderate scales of charge, from which survivors may choose according to their means and the requirements of the case. The Company also undertakes the conduct of Funerals to other cemeteries, and to all parts of the United Kingdom. A pamphlet containing full particulars may be obtained, or will be forwarded, upon application to the Chief Office, 2, Lancaster-place, Strand, W.C.
