An instance of the responsibility which a husband may incur by letting his wife have money to dispose of as she pleases, occurred in Dri Ouseley's case before Lord Romilly this week. The wife had a legacy of £1000 left her by her aunt; and the husband consented to her receiving the money and employing it as she thought fit. Thereupon she invested a portion of it in the purchase of 800 shares in the European Assurance Society. She received all the dividends, and the husband never dealt with the shares at all. A few years after the society is wound-up, and the husband is held to be liable to contribute in respect of the shares. Lord ROMILLY considered the case a very hard one, but held that the husband allowing his wife to invest the money did not prevent is being liable in the same manner as if any other agent had invested it for him.

Tre Licensing Act has many terrors for licensed victuallers and one, perhaps, somewhat unfamiliar, has been unearthed at the Chester City Police Court. By the 17th section of 35 & 36 Vict. c. 94, if any licensed person suffers any gaming or any unlawful game to be carried on on his premises, he is liable to a penalty of £10. And any conviction for an offence under this section shall, unless the convicting magistrates shall otherwise order, be recorded on the licence of the person convicted. The unlawful game which it was alleged was going on at the Chester publican's bore the pleasant title of“ sudden death,” which consists of shaking coins in a hat and turning them out on to a table--a species of pitch and toss. The solicitor for the defence submitted that this was not unlawful gaming, what occurred being no more than pitching and tossing in a private room. His point seems to have been that stakes must be played for to make pitch and toss in a licensed house illegal. We think the magistrates were right in convicting. Any other decision would open a wide door to evasion of the plain provision of the Act.

A LESSON has been read to returning officers at School Board elections by Mr. Hawkes, a Birmingham solicitor, which may prove of service generally. The deputy returning officer, who was an alderman of the city, published an analysis of the voting, showing the number of Catholic, denominational, and unsectarian votes given in the respective districts. Mr. HAWKES points out that this publication is a direct infraction of the Ballot Act, the 34th rule being in the following words :-“31. Before the returning officer proceeds to count the votes, he shall, in the presence of the agents of the candidates, open each ballot box, and, taking out the papers therein, shall count and record the numbers thereof, and then mix together the whole of the ballot papers contained in the ballot boxes.” The object of the Legislature he points out was to conceal the local complexion of the votes, and, he adds, no one having electioneering experience in counties, or in boroughs like Tamworth, can fail to appreciate the great protection to voters which such an arrangement secures. The justice and accuracy of this remark is quite obvious, and returning officers at School Board elections will make a great mistake if they are less diligent than such officers at municipal and Parliamentary elections in carrying out the ballot system.

Tie remedy of a judgment creditor against the land of his debtor has been further considered in a case which we reported last week (Hatton v. Haywood, 29 L. T. Rep. N. S. 385). There the creditor had issued a writ of elegit, and obtained a return from the sheriff. The debtor, however, had become bankrupt, and the land had been handed over to his trustee before it had been actually delivered over to the plaintiff under his writ of elegit. This raised a dis. cussion as to the meaning of “actually delivered in execution," the words of the Law of Judgments Amendment Act (27 & 28 Vict. c. 112). The first section says that no judgment, statute, or recognizance to be entered up after the passing of the Act, shall affect any land (of whatever tenure), until such land shall have been actually delivered in execution by virture of a writ of elegit, or other lawful authority, in pursuance of such judgment, statute or recognizance. In the Earl of Cork v. Russell (26 L. T. Rep. N. S. 230), it was decided that a judgment creditor who had not issued execution had no interest in the land so as to entitle him to be a party to a suit for foreclosure. This
was a decision of ViceChancellor Malins, and the same learned Judge decided Hatton v. Haywood in accordance with it. Vice-Chancellor Page Wood took a different view in Re Cowbridge Railway Company (18 L. T. Rep. N. S. 102), and expressed the opinion that it could not have been intended by the Legislature that a judgment creditor should have no interest in the land until he had obtained actual possession of it, for the very sufficient reason that incorporeal hereditaments which are expressly made land within the meaning of the Act, could not be the subject of actual delivery. "The intention must have been," said ViceChancellor Wood," simply that all those
THE LORD CHANCELLOR has ordered that the offices of the County Courts may be closed on the 26th and 27th days of December next. The courts of common law are evidently disposed to recognise the validity of a consideration for a promise acted upon by a contracting party, although there may be a suggestion that the contract is against public policy. Bartering votes for charities is about as unwholesome a traffic as can well be imagined, but on strict principles of law, if A. gives his votes for the candidates of B. at
