con

much support in the North. The reason why it is received with favour in the South is because of the negro element. The negro knows the potent danger there is to him in the drinking saloon, and both white man and black man combine by local option to lessen the danger. The area chosen for the operation of local option is usually the country. The High Licence System is of comparatively recent date. It was introduced in 1881 by the State of Nebraska, the home of Mr. Bryan, the Democratic candidate for the Presidency. Since that date it has, in an increasing degree, found favour with American legislation. It consists of granting licences at high prices Three main advantages are claimed for the high licence system : (1) Extinction of a great number of the worst and lowest dram-shops-sinks of vice and hotbeds of crime ; (2) Better police control, owing to the diminution of numbers and the concentration of the trade in the business centre of the town; (3) Better observance of the law by licence holders, for fear of pecuniary loss involved in the forfeiture of their licences. As to the free trade system, in Ohio, anyone who pays the tax may keep a dram-shop, and there is, properly speaking, no licensing power. In other places (Chicago, for example) the power to refuse applications exists only when the applicant's character is unsatisfactory, and practically is not exercised except in rare cases, the municipality granting the licence to almost anyone who is ready to pay the fee. Of all these systems - the English system, the Gothenburg system, the Russian system, the Swiss system, prohibition, local option, high licence system, free trade system--which is to be preferred ? Loud complaints are made from time to time that the English system is not satisfactory. In theory it is, perbaps, as good as any system that can be suggested, as it intrusts to men of position, culture, and education the right to grant or refuse licences, and their independent position places them above suspicion or corruption. Justices are, however, human after all, and if they do not come up to what theory expects of them, we must not blamo them too much, but try to find some other remedy. This, however, should be said, that the granting of the licences has been in the hands of justices for over 400 years, and the evil to-day seems to be as rampant as ever it was. This is a sad commentary on the administration of the law by that tribunal. The echoes of the recent acrimonious controversy in this country over the Gothenburg system have scarcely yet died away. About that system the general opinion does not seem to accept it as solving the problem. The Russian system of Government monopoly has its advantages. The recent attempt of municipal corporations to run hotels (of which Hartlepool is a striking example) seems to be on the same lines. The legality as well as the practicability of a municipality conducting a public-house seems to be in doubt. But the great advantage of all these systems is that the profits accrued go to enrich the community, instead of the private individual. Prohibition is not practicable without the sanction of the community. Local option, although, perhaps, the most democratic of all, would probably result in little good. The high licence system regards the rich man and ignores the poor man. The free trade system has already been tried, and found wanting. We have already seen what happened in the case of the Beerhouse Act 1830. The same was attempted with regard to wine licences. Mr. Gladstone, in 1860, in introducing the Wine Licensing Act, stated that the proposal was not intended merely as a means of raising revenue, but as our carrying out the principles of free trade, and contributing to the comfort and con. venience of the people. Nine years later, however, it was found necessary to take away the free trade principle. We may therefore conclude that the free trade principle in licences has already been sufficiently tried in England and proved a failure. To place the licensing in the hands of any municipal authority would undoubtedly lead to corruption. It has been suggested that the licensing authority should be a specially constituted body elected for the express purpose of dealing with licences and licensing law. This is more like local option. It is almost impossible to suggest any effective species of reform. The more one studies the subject, the more complex it becomes. It may be found that reform lies in the direction of reforming the man rather than in reforming the system. But the subject is a thorny one. Ministries have been shattered and elections have been lost over attempts to reform the licensing system. Almost everything has been tried and found wanting. It is significant that, before the Royal Commission, now sitting, no witness has yet suggested any substantial alteration in the law. Perhaps, where the expert and specialist fear to enter, the law student of Burnley may not fear to tread.

Mr. T. H. Roberts moved a rote of thanks to the lecturer, and remarked that Mr. Mackenzie had presented a very dry subject in a lucid and interesting manner.

The Town Clerk seconded.

A sumptuous repast was then done full justice to, over which Mr. Fullalove (town clerk) presided. After dinner the following lengthy toast list was gone through, being interspersed with songs : “The Queen and Royal Family,' proposed by the Town Clerk, and drunk with musical honours ; “The Bar and Our Guest,” coupled with “ The Society and its Officers,” proposed by Mr. T. Nowell (the Borough Justices' clerk), and responded to by Mr. Mackenzie, Mr. Fullalove, and Mr. J. K. Pickup (secretary); “ The Solicitors,” proposed by Mr. F. Roberts and responded to by Mr. T. H. Roberts; “ The Articled Clerks,” proposed by Mr. J. S. Kay, and responded to by Mr. A. Riley; "The Burnley Corporation,” proposed by Jr. R. Procter, and responded to by Councillor E. F. P. Emmett.

STUDENTS' SOCIETIES. LAW STUDENTS' DEBATING SOCIETY.-. The asual weekly meeting of the above society was held at the Law Institution, Chancery-lane, on Tuesday, the 1st inst.; chairman, Mr. Rupert Blagden. The subject for debate was, “That the case of Camrack v. Edwards (75 L. T. Rep. 122 ; (1896) 2 Ch. 679) was wrongly decided.” Mr. Alfred Simon opened in the affirma. tive, and Mr. Ernest Allen seconded. Mr. A. C. F. Boulton opened in the negative, and Mr. G. H. May seconded. The following members also spoke : Messrs. Melliar Smith, W. P. Richardson, H. Lacy Addison, A. W. Sells, H. Burns, H. Hamilton Fox, Horace E. Miller, and H. Herbert Smith. The motion was lost by seven votes.- Next Tuesday, the 8th Dec., a joint debate will be held with the Gray's Inn Debating Society on the following subject: “ That, in the opinion of this House, the working classes can hope to obtain satisfaction of their needs under a Liberal rather than a Conservative Administration.” The debate will be held at the Law Institution, and will be opened by Mr. L. A. Atherley Jones, Q.C., M.P., on behalf of the Gray's Inn Debating Society.

BIRMINGHAM.--A meeting of this society, presided over by Mr. Isaac Bradley, was held on the 1st inst. in the Law Library, Bennett's Hill. A debate took place oa Moot Point No. 855: “ A. paid B. what each of them thought was a shilling. Afterwards B. discovered that it was a sovereign, and though knowing that A. had paid the sovereign in mistake for a shilling, and though able to restore it to A., kept it, and appropriated it. Was B. guilty of larceny ? The speakers were : For the affirmative Messrs. H. H. d'Egville, G. Green, A. S. Anderson, and H. S. Clapham ; for the negative-Messrs. A. F. Lovatt, M. C. Blewitt, F. 0. Hopson, F. W. Green, G. E. T. Edalji, and J. Cheatle. The Chairman having summed up, and put the question to the meeting, it was decided in the negative by a inajority of seventeen votes.

LEEDS.-The ordinary weekly meeting of this society was held on Monday, the Ist inst., in the Law Institute, Albion-place, Leeds; Dr. Chapman, barrister-at-law, occupying the chair. A vote of gratulation was accorded to Mr. S. Lowenthal upon his having passed his Intermediate Examination. A debate was then held upon the following subject: “A Chinese subject, accused of complicity in a conspiracy to murder the Emperor of China, is enticed into the Chinese Ambassador's house in London. He is tried by the Ambassador and condemned to death and hanged, his body being buried in the back yard of the house. Was the Ambassador acting legally according to international law " Mr. E. N. Whitley opened in the affirmative. He said that an Ambassador enjoyed three great privileges : personal immunity for himself, his family and suite from the criminal law and (to a great extent) from the civil law of the country to which he was accredited : inviolability of his house : and freedom from allegiance to the sovereign to whose court he was attached. These privileges, the speaker contended, justified the Ambassador in the present case in the action he had taken. Mr. F. G. Jackson in, the negative, argued that the Ambassador's immunity from criminal law did not apply in the case of gross crimes like the present one ; that the Ambassador had no power to put to death one of bis suite, much less the victim in the present case ; and that the enticing amounted to an arrest, which the Ambassador was not justified in making. The question was eventually decided in the negative by a majority of five. A vote of thanks to the chairman concluded the proceedings.-The society's annual dinner will be held on Thursday the 10th inst., when Mr. Justice Vaughan Williams will deliver his Presidential address.

MANCHESTER.-The third ordinary meeting of the session was held on Tnesday, the 24th ult. ; Prof. J. S. Seaton, MA., B.C.L., barrister-at-law, in the chair. The attendance of members was again excellent, being equal in number to the highest recorded in the annals of the society. Mr. W. Bagshaw, solicitor, and Messrs. R. Calvert and D. Postlethwaite, law students, were unanimously elected members of the society. After the customary preliminary business debate was opened on the following lines, a full report of which is being sent to Law Notes” to compete for the debating prize offered by that journal: "A Chinese subject, accused of complicity in a conspiracy to murder the Emperor of China, is enticed into the Chinese Ambassador's house in London. He is tried by the Ambassador and condemned to death and hanged, his body being buried in the back yard of the house. Was the Ambaszador acting legally according to international law ?” Mr. F. S. Oppenheim, for the affirmative, gave a brief sketch of the progressive trend of modern international law and the general rules relating to exterritoriality, instancing, as evidence of the wide applicability of the doctrine, the great latitude allowed to Ambassadors in contract and tort, the recognised right of asylum attached to an Ambassador's palace and the rules of exterritoriality as affecting public ships (citing Forbes v. Cochrane, Reg. v. Carr, and the opinions of various text-writers on the subject). He argued that, in the present moot, provided no sinister meaning was placed on the word "enticed,” the Chinese subject came voluntarily (even if unintentionally) to Chinese territory, and if the Ambassador had been authorised (as must be inferred) by the municipal law of China to judge and condemn him, he was certainly acting legally as far as international law was concerned (citing in support the case of Sulby in 1603 and the grounds for the verdict in the case of Mickilchkorff in 1867). Mr. L. Bottomley, solicitor, in reply, submitted that territorial sovereignty was the root conception of inter

national law and must not be interfered with ; that the true test of an Ambassador's powers was whether they were or were not necessary to him in the fulfilment of his duties; that no official had ever bad power to arrest anyone outside his own country; and that criminal jurisdiction, as such, was entirely outside the sphere of an Ambassador's duties (citing from Walker's Science of International Law and tbe case of Queen Christina in 1867. The following gentlemen took part in the debate : Messrs. F. H. Williamson, C. R. Allen, jun., W. E. Faraday (visitor), F. Hindle, G. Buckley, P. Hibbert, F. Preston, Z. H. Lord, A. A. Richardson, M.A., B.C.L., W. Booth, F. W. Watson, S. Taylor, B.A., and J. R. Swindelle. Mr. Oppenheim having replied briefly to the arguments raised, the Chairman summed up the debate strongly in favour of the negative, pointing out that the doctrine of the “extreme” exterritoriality of an Ambassador's house had never been recognised by international law; that it made no difference whether the man judged was a Chinese subject (not a member of the Ambassador's suite) or a foreigner ; and that finally, under no circumstances could an Ambassador exercise criminal jurisdiction outside his own country except by special treaty. The meeting thereupon came to a decision on those lines by a very large majority.

NEWCASTLE-UPON-TYNE.—The fifth general meeting of the society was held on Wednesday, the 25th Nov., in the Law Library : Mr. R. S. Holmes in the chair. The subject for debate was as follows : “ An express train which is late is stopped by signal at Newmarsh station at the same time as a stopping train is due there. Bell is standing on the platform waiting for the stopping train to take him to Sutton, and gets into the express which does not stop until it gets fifty miles past Sutton. Bell asked no questions, and no one told him that the express was not the stopping train. Can he recover damages from the railway company? Messrs. H. F. Heath and A. B. Lemon opened in the affirmative; and Messrs. R. Brown, jun., and S. D. Cole in the negative. On the debate being declared open the following members also spoke : Messrs. Sanders Lisle, Minton-Senbouse, Motum, Bruce, Brandling, Chapman, T. Dodds, and Ord. The Chairman, on summing up the arguments, pointed out the various phases inwbich the question might be looked at and stated the law bearing on the many points raised in the debate. On a vote being taken, it was decided by a majority of four in the negative. There were twenty-three members present.

NOTTINGHAM.-Friday, the 20th Nov.; Mr. A. B. Littlewood (vice president) in the chair. The subject of debate was: “ The will of a testator contained the following devise : “I give Blackacre to my trustees upon trust for my daughter M. for her sole use and benefit during her life, and in case she shall marry and leave issue then I devise the same from and immediately after her decease unto all and every her children and child for ever, and if more than one in equal shares as tenants in common. Bat in case M. shall marry and leave no issue, then upon trust for my nepbew J. M. married and bad one child, a daughter, who died an infant in M.'s lifetime. On the death of M. her husband, the father of the deceased child, is still living. Will the gift over to J. take effect ? ” Mr. E. W. Turpin opened in the affirmative, and Mr. J. B. Sharp in the negative. Messrs. Wilson, Leman, Allcock, Hanson, Bramley, and Stocker spoke. Messrs. Sharp and Turpin baving replied, the Chairman summed up, and it was decided unanimously in the affirmative.

WHATEVER be the fate which ultimately overtakes the Four Inns of Court, it can never be said that they have not had abundant warning. The debate at the Hardwicke Society last week, on the resolution that Benchers should be elected by the Bar, ended in an enthusiastic vote in its favour. A youthful speaker referred to this debate as the first whisper of the storm which might sweep away the entire system by which the Bar is now managed-possibly to result in the Bar being brought under Government control. The question of the election of Benchers is only one feature. The division of the governing body is much more serious. A positive rivalry

the Four Inns of Court as if they were commercial academies. To get more students, to call more men to the Bar than another Inn, are objects of emulation with each. Is it surprising that the Bar is overcrowded ? But, in carrying on this rivalry, four separate organisations are kept alive at enormous expense.

Four under-treasurers ; four staffs of officials; four cooks and kitchens ; four libraries; three chapels and five clergy; and so on.

Four magnificent and costly teams to draw one sober coach ! If a good result were attained no complaint might arise. But when it is remembered that this multiplication of administrations means divided counsels, impossibility of rapid and united action, and that a separate council, elected by the whole Bar, including many Benchers, is constantly sitting in the very Parliament chambers of the Inns themselves, doing the practical work of the Profession, no position could be more ludicrously and extravagantly absurd.

We have no desire to see the Inns of Court disappear. There is no reason why they should. Let them continue to exist as colleges. Let them keep their Benchers as fellows, their cooks and their kitchens, their wine cellars and their gardens. But for all purposes of government let there be but one representative body, which shall be subject to the rules which govern all other public bodies. Let what they do be known---their funds, whence derived and how expended. The secrecy which wraps up the proceedings of the Benchers reflects upon them as trustees. Why it has ever existed—W a Parliament chamber is close tiled, except for purposes of discipline affecting character

-we never could understand. These are not times for playing blind man's buff with a great Profession. A barrister does not become
