the estate or of the moneys to arise from its sale. If the power were imperative, and the moneys were directed to be distributed as personal estate, the case would fall within the provisions of the Legacy Duty Act (55 Geo. 3, c. 184, sched. 3) (Attorney-General v. Holford, 1 Pri. 426), and, by force of sect. 18 of the Succession Duty Act, would be altogether exempt from the operation of the last-mentioned Act (See remarks of Lord Westbury in Attorney-General v. Littledale, L. Rep. 5 H. of L. 299). If the purchase-moneys were directed to be reinvested in land, to be settled, the case would not fall within the provisions of the Legacy Duty Act (Mules v. Jennings, 8 Ex. 830), but would come within the 29th section of the Succession Duty Act. If the power of sale were purely discretionary, as, for instance, if A. settled the estate and gave his trustees a power to sell it if they thought proper, succession duty would appear to attach upon the estate itself until the sale actually took place; but immediately upon the happening of that event the estate would be free from any claim for presumptive duty. In either of the cases a purchaser under the power would not be liable to any duty consequent upon the testator's death, nor to any duty to which the testator was not himself liable. I am further of the opinion, expressed in the paper above referred to, and for the reasons there stated, that the purchaser is not even liable to that duty to which the testator, if he had lived, would, on another's death, have been liable. I am, however, bound to admit that my opinion is somewhat opposed to the recent decision in the case of The SolicitorGeneral v. The Law Reversionary Interest Society (L. Rep. 8 Ex. 233). In the case before us the purchaser is clearly not liable to pay any duty in consequence of the death of the annuitant. The principal difficulty in the case as regards duty arises from the postponement of the sale for ten years from A.'s death. If the disposition in the will brought the case within the operation of the Legacy Duty Acts, legacy duty became payable upon A.'s death upon the value of A.'s interest in the estate viz., its value less the value of the annuity. If, on the other hand, the case falls within sect. 29 of the Succession Duty Act, then, whether the power was imperative or discretionary, succession duty was probably paid upon A.'s death upon the basis of the beneficiary's life estate in the balance of the annual rents after deducting the amount of the annuity: (Sects. 20 and 21.) Upon the sale taking place, if it were made in pursuance of a discretionary power, and the beneficiary were absolutely entitled to the proceeds, succession duty would be payable upon the capital of such proceeds, but credit would, of course, be given for the amount already paid. If, however, the beneficiary were only entitled to a limited estate or interest, the further succession duty payable upon the sale would only be in respect of his life interest in the increase of his income arising from what was practically the sale of the reversion to the rents eaten up by the annuity. In any case, if under the peculiar circumstances of the case the proper duty has not been paid, it must fall upon the investment of the proceeds of the sale, and the persons entitled to it, and not upon the estate or the purchaser.

28. MORTGAGE-STAMP.-A. mortgaged a farm to B for £1000; no covenant for payment of interest was inshould be paid. A. afterwards borrowed the further serted in the mortgrge, as it was not intended that any sum of £300 of B., and gave him a further charge on the farm for the £300 and interest, and also covenanted for payment of interest on the original principal sum of £1000 from the date of the further charge. Is the further charge liable to additional stamp duty in respect of this latter covenant? If so, would it be sufficient to stamp the deed as a security collateral to the original mortgage in addition to stamping it with ad valorem duty in respect of the further charge, or is ad valorem duty on the £1000 (as on mortgage) required? Reference to authority desired.

30. MARRIED WOMAN-ACKNOWLEDGMENT.-J. P., who died in 1869, by his will made in 1868, devised to trustees (his widow and two sons), freehold property upon trust for sale, the widow to receive interest of proceeds for life, then divisible amongst his children. The sons for appointment of new trustees, and the widow by deed (trustees) died in 1870. The will contains usual clause appointed another son and a daughter. The daughter shortly afterwards married, and the property has since been sold. Does the purchaser's conveyance require acknowledgment, the married daughter being simply a bare trustee, with a beneficial interest after her mother's

the more ambitious societies have done for us. sary parties to the conveyance ?
After the experience we have had of them, it is
plain that, for some reason or other, they have
failed to accomplish the more urgent and practical
objects for which they were established, and so
have ceased to enlist the support of an enormous
majority of the members of the Profession. If
the new society will only "confine its opera-
tions to the reform of proved abuses in con-
nection with the Profession," and take care
that those operations are well-timed and suffi-
ciently energetic, it will soon have a larger
member-roll and do more real good than all the
older bodies put together. I hope that at
the preliminary meetings to be held the pro-
moters will consider the advisability of having
branch societies or district committees in all con-
siderable towns throughout the country, and of
holding at least two general meetings every year,
one in London and the other in some provincial
town to be selected from time to time. This
would tend to foster and increase amongst indi-
vidual practitioners, especially in the country, a
feeling of interest in the general wellbeing of the
Profession. The prospectus mentions "some of
the subjects which are likely to engage the atten-
tion" of the society; but I hope it will not fail
to deal also, as incidental to its main objects,
with matters such as (a) the direct representa-
tion of solicitors in Parliament; (b) the considera-
tion and, as far as may be the guidance, of pro-
posed legislation affecting the interests of the
Profession; (c) the facilitating of changes from
either branch of the Profession to the other. I may,
perhaps, be allowed to suggest the expediency
of sending copies of the prospectus to all the known
law students' societies. In connection with most
of them there are many young solicitors, and both
they and their pupils would be valuable accessions.
The societies, as such, would also no doubt be
induced to affiliate or unite themselves with the
Practitioners' Society, for the purpose of concerted
action. Before concluding I should like to say one
word on the impudent encroachments of county
court " agents." In some districts the judges
properly keep a tight rein on these gentry, but in
others they permit them to have "the ear of the
court," as well as to give evidence and issue pro-
ceedings. One of your correspondents has I think
suggested the only effective remedy. Let the
attorneys in every district make an application to
the judge of each court for a general order pro-
hibiting the appearance of these agents, and let
the application be supported by a memorial signed
not only by the attorneys regularly practising in
the court, but, if possible, by all residing in the
town and neighbourhood."

26. DEVISE-WORDS OF REVOCATION.-A. by his will, dated in 1839, devised certain estates (held on a lease for lives renewable for ever) in Ireland to C. in fee. A. afterwards, by a codicil to his will, revoked the devise and declared "that the said C. shall not at any time have or be entitled to the said estates or any share thereof." A. then devised said estate to D, "for the other sons successively in tail male." All D.'s sons are dead, and left no issue. D. is now dying. To whom will the estate go on his death?

ARTICLED CLERKS' SOCIETY. A MEETING of this society was held at 1, Milfordlane, Strand, W.C., on Wednesday, the 19th Nov., Mr. E. F. Stanway in the chair. Mr. H. Saunders opened the subject for the evening's debate, viz.,

That a republican Government is best suited to the Spanish people." The motion was lost by a majority of three. The Judicature Act is also now under discussion by the members of this society, a portion of the Act being considered and discussed at each meeting.

LEGAL PRACTITIONERS' SOCIETY. A PRELIMINARY meeting of members of both branches of the Profession took place on Thurs. last, at the rooms of the Social Science Association, 1, Adam-street, Adelphi, to consider the desirability of establishing the above society, the prospectus of which we published last week, and which has already received much support. The chair was taken by W. T. Charley, Esq., M.P D.C.L., and it having been resolved to establish the society, after much discussion, the meeting was adjourned to the 7th Jan. next.

The stamp duty of 2s. 6d. on copyhold admittances (13 & 14 Vict. c. 97) has been Europe to give an international patent law, surely repealed. the United States should give a copyright law, upon which there was an unanimous expression of opinion in favour of such a law, with a promise to follow up the subject. It had been found convenient to distinguish between the two senses which might attach to the word "copyright" with reference to rights existing before and after publication. Copyright before publication was the common law right to property founded on labour and occupancy; property existed in ideas embodied in words, lines, or symbols, by being com. mitted to paper. That embodiment was in the sole possession and sole control of the author: he could retain in secret or disclose its subject in a limited or partial manner, or publish it by print-day ing or sale in the usual manner. Copyright after or on publication was the creation of the municipal law, regulated by the ordinances and statutes of each country. To property in the product of intellectual labour before publication, the term claim or right might be applied with equal propriety: but to property in such product after publication the term claim should be applied, inasmuch as the "right" was that which the law of each individual country afforded. The right after publication consisted in the right of the sole and exclusive liberty of multiplying Copies of the work so published, the conditions of which it might be expedient to vary according to the circumstances and exigency of each country. The word "author" used in the statute is employed without limitation or restriction; it must, therefore, include every person who shall be an author, unless from the rest of the statute sufficient grounds could be found for giving the term a limited signification. preamble of the Imperial Copyright Act 1812, was quite inconsistent with the conclusion that the protection given by the statute was intended to be confined to the works of British authors. On the contrary, it seemed to contain an invitation to men of learning in every country to make the United Kingdom the place of first publication of THE COURTS & COURT PAPERS. their works; and an extended term of copyright throughout the whole of the British dominion was the reward of their so doing. So interpreted and applied, the Act was auxiliary to the advancement of learning in this country. The real condition of obtaining its advantages was the first publication by the author of his work in the United Kingdom. After many representations from the colonies, it was suggested, by authority of the Board of Trade, that each colony should take its own steps to protect the British author, and an Act was passed (10 & 11 Vict. c. 95, 1847), by which provision was made for supending the prohibition of the importation of foreign reprints of English books into a colony, in cases where the colony might make the provision for protecting CLEMENT and SON, attorneys and solicitors, Alton. the rights of the author, such provisions having the approval of Her Majesty in Council. Then the Government became empowered to suspend the operation in the colony of the Imperial Copyright Act. The different Acts afterwards made with regard to the subject were said to have been a complete failure. Under them the colonists collected next to nothing for the British author, and were supplied with United States reprints, DOBSON, JOHN THOMAS, financial agent, West Kensington-gdns, smuggled across the border without paying duty. The inefficiency of the Act rendered it necessary that some arrangements with both Canada and the United States should be made.

LAST Monday evening the first meeting of the
Law Amendment Society took place at its rooms,
Adam-street, Adelphi, when a paper was read by
Mr. Thomas Webster, Q.C., on "The Copyright as
affecting British Authors in the Colonies, United
States, and Foreign Countries."

The chair was taken by Mr. Henry Reeve, C.B., who, in introducing Mr. Webster, dwelt upon the importance of the subject about to be introduced of International Copyright. Besides the interest which the subject had for authors, he said, and those who were financially connected with copyright, it had a legal bearing, as it raised questions of law, both in this country and in the colonies, which had not been as fully considered as perhaps they should be. The object the society had in view was to call attention to the questions of this kind, and to afford information on various points which presented themselves to the members; and he had no doubt that the paper about to be read would contribute to that result.

In the course of Mr. Webster's remarks, he said that property in intellectual labour, as embodied in a "book or "dramatic piece," the subject of Talfourd's Act, 5 & 6 Vict. c. 45 (the Imperial Copyright Act 1842), was recognised by most civilized nations, and maintained and protected by them in some way. The laws of such property, as regarded subject matter and ownership, might be regarded as substantially the same in all countries, but the practice and procedure were widely different. The assimilation of the law practice and procedure, affecting or relating to such property, was a subject well deserving the attention of this society. It had been touched upon on various occasions. The late Mr. Robertson Blaine brought the subject of international copyright before the jurisprudence section at the Bradford Congress of the Social Science Association in 1862. A number of gentlemen, interested as authors and publishers, had brought the subject from time to time before the Foreign Office, the Colonial Office, and the Board of Trade; communi. cations had also taken place with Canada and the United States. Draft Bills had been prepared and schemes proposed with the common object of securing some more satisfactory arrangement as regarded the colonies and the United States of


In the discussion that followed the reading of the paper

Mr. Frederick Hill said that the proceedings at the Vienna Congress augured well for the success of the measure which contemplated allowing authors, wherever they might issue their works, the right over the proceeds of the labour. It seemed that we were on the point of inducing the Americans to agree to some satisfactory arrangement. Under the present circumstances the reward of intellectual labour was diminished, the motive for exertion was reduced, the character of literature was to a certain extent marred, and the true interest of all was in the protection of the very best works of literature. He then moved that the paper be referred to the Jurisprudence section of the association for their consideration. with a view to action.

Mr. White was of opinion that the difficulty and unfairness which existed under the Copyright Act was in the power of Parliament to remedy.

Mr. Thomas Longman thought that if copyright was property it should be protected and guarded in the most careful manner. Lord Macaulay, speaking in the House of Commons on the subject, said that there was no doubt that copyright was a monopoly; but was of the very best kind, and was created for the best object, and with the best

AN instance of the responsibility which a husband may incur by letting his wife have money to dispose of as she pleases, occurred in Dr 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.

THE 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 cvasion 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 75 such an arrangement secures.

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.

THE 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 discussion 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 Vice-Chancellor WooD, "simply that all those
