THE STUDY OF JURISPRUDENCE. THERE is no pursuit on which more ability and learning has been lavished than on the law of England, and there is no subject to which English literature has contributed so little as general jurisprudence. The real reason why general jurisprudence has been neglected in this country is to be found in the absence of the causes which in other countries induce men to study it. The popularity of general speculations, either upon law or any other subject, depends principally upon the degree of practical importance attached to them. For example, when the minds of men are occupied, as in France in the last century, with the presentiment that great social changes are impending, there is a strong inducement to theorise upon the constitution of society, and the nature and limits of political obligations, in order to furnish arms to the combatants in the struggle which is felt to be approaching. In the same way the degree in which men perceive the necessity for general principles and broad views on legal subjects depends upon the degree in which they feel the want of them; and, though it may appear paradoxical, it is strictly true, that under many circumstances, and in many states of society, the study of jurisprudence is injured by a good administration of justice and a good system of legislation, and favoured by a bad one.

The law of England may be not altogether unfairly described as a mass of details which no memory can embrace, and which hardly any understanding can reduce under the heads to which they properly belong ; but tbis state of things which a knowledge of jurisprudence more widely diffused among lawyers would undoubtedly have gone far to remedy, can be distinctly traced to the fact that the administration of the law was for centuries more pure, systematic, and authoritative, and that legislation was more judicious and definite in this than in any other country in Europe.

The general object of jurisprudence is to lay down principles as to the nature of law, and to devise for legal purposes classifications of the various actions and relations of mankind; but the practical value of such theories is little felt where a system of law is established which is so administered as to fulfil satisfactorily the primary objects of the protection of person and property, and their direct influence on judicial decisions is diminished in exact proportion to the degree of anthority which practically attaches to the enactments of a well-ascertained sovereign legislature. In England the statutes, the law reports, and a few standard text-books, have for many centuries formed the only authorities to which persons acting judicially would listen. In France, even at the present day, a far greater latitude is allowed both to judges and to advocates, and the long absence of any standard authority, universally acknowledged and obeyed, has had much more to do with the fondness of French lawyers for general theories than any natural superiority in their understandings over those of our own legal writers. In France the line between theory and authority was traced, it at all, in the faintest manner. There was thus a strong inducement to writers to attempt to rise above the petty mass of intricate rules established amongst them, and to claim for their own theories a right to regulate the affairs of mankind on account of their inherent justice and wisdom. On the other hand, the absence of any general authorities bind. ing on all courts alike naturally disposed the judges to encourage such speculations by attaching to them a degree of importance which in our own country they bave never been allowed to obtain.

In England the jurisdiction is fixed, and the broad outlines of the law have been laid down from time immemorial, and the result of this has been that general theories as to what the w ought to be, or as to the principles which should regulate its proceedings, have always been relegated by the judges to the Legislature. No doubt legislative powers of great importance always have been, and from the nature of the case

TEMPLE RESTAURANT. --This establishment, situate in Tudor-street, adjoining King's Bench Walk (four minutes from the High Courts of Justice), has been entirely rebuilt and enlarged. The Temple Restaurant is now replete with every convenience and comfort which experience and capital can command. Table d'Hôte daily, consisting of soups, entrées, joints, vegetables, &c., at 2s. each. No charge for attendance. Dinners à la Carte quickly served. Choice wines, spirits, and malt liquors. Chops, steaks, tea, and coffee. The Legal Profession is respectfully informed that Breakfasts, Dinners, and Teas are supplied in chambers if desired. Menus and tariffs forwarded daily for selection apon application.-[ADVT.]

The only mode of correcting this evil is to free from confusion and set in a clear light those necessary resemblances and differences which, if not brought into distinct apprehension by all systems of law, are latent in all, and do not depend on the accidental history of any. These resemblances and differences are those which are alone fit to be made use of as the groundwork of a scientific arrangement. The fact that they exist in all legal systems proves that they go deeper down into the roots of law than any of those which are peculiar to some one system. That the main divisions of the subject should be grounded on these follows from the first principle of classification, that the general should take precedence of the special, and, as they are common to all systems, or to all which are of any scientific importance, the parts of any given system which are peculiar to it will still find, in this arrangement, a proper place in which to lodge themselves, which would not happen if the main arrangement were itself grounded on distinctions purely historical and belonging only to a particular system.

To clear up these general notions is, therefore, the direct object of the science of jurisprudence as conceived by Austin, and the practical result of the science, if carried to the greatest perfection of which it is susceptible, would be to provide, first, such a legal terminology (with a strict and precise meaning attached to every word and phrase) that any system whatever of law might be expressed in it; and next such a general scheme of arrangement that any system whatever of law might be distributed according to it; and that, when so expressed and distributed, every part of it would be distinctly intelligible, and each part would assist the comprehension of all the rest. Jurisprudence, thus understood, is not so much a science of law as of the application of logic to law. But by affording a clear and connected view of the whole field of lawilluminating it by large, comprehensive, and exactly discriminated conceptions--and enabling every legal part to be classed at once with those with wbich it has the nearest alliance, it bestows on the student either of the pbilosophy of law, or of any existing legal system, a command over the subject such as no other course of study would have made aitainable.

always will be, vested in the judges, but the acknowledged supremacy of the Legislature, and the great authority of the courts, narrow the spirit in which they are exercised.

The purpose of Bentham was to investigate principles from which to decide what laws ought to exist, what legal rights and legal duties or obligations are fit to be established among mankind. This was also the ultimate end of Mr. Austin's speculations, but the subject of his special labours was theoretically distinct, though subsidiary, and practically indispensable, to the former. It was what may be called the logic of law, as distinguished from its morality or expediency. Its purpose was that of clearing up and defining the notions which the human mind is compelled to form, and the distinctions which it obliged to make, by the mere existence of a body of law of any kind, or of a body of law taking cognisance of the concerns of a civilised and complicated state of society. A clear and firm possession of these notions and distinctions is as important to practice as it is to science. For only by means of it can the legislator know how to give effect to bis own ideas and his own purposes. Without it, however capable the legislator might be of conceiving good laws in the abstract, he could not possibly so word them, and so combine and arrange them, that they should really do the work intended and expected. These notions and distinctions form the science of jurisprudence as Mr. Austin conceived it. But though the work which Austin did neither would nor conld have been done if Bentham had not given the impulse and pointed out the way, it was of a different character from Bentham's work, and not less indispensable.

Austin does not specially contemplate legal systems in reference to their origin and to the psychological causes of their existence. He considers them in respect of what may be called their organic structure. Every body of law has certain points of agreement with every other, and between those which have prevailed in cultivated and civilised societies, there is a still greater number of features in common. Independently of the resemblances which naturally exist in their substantive provisions, there is also a certain common groundwork of general conceptions or notions, each in itself very wide, and some of them very complex, which can be traced through every body of law and are the same in all. These conceptions are not pre-existent, they are a result of abstraction, and emerge as soon as the attempt is made to look at any body of laws as a whole, or to compare one part of it with another, or to regard persons and the facts of life from a legal point of view. There are certain combinations of facts and of ideas which every system of law must recognise and certain modes of regarding facts which every such system requires. The proof is, that all legal systems require a variety of names wbich are not in use for any other purpose. Whoever has apprehended the full meaning of these names—that is, whoever perfectly understands the facts and the combinations of thought which they denote-is a master of juristical knowledge; and a well-made lexicon of the legal terms of all systems would be a complete science of jurisprudence, for the objects, whether natural or artificial, with which law has to do must be the same objects which it also has occasion to name.

But to conceive distinolly a great mass of objects, partly resembling and partly differing from one another, they must be classed; and to make any set of practical provisions, which cover a large field, definite and intelligible, they must be presented to the mind on some principle of arrangement grounded on the degree of their connection and alliance with one another. The details of different legal systems are different, but there is no reason why the main classifications and heads of arrangement should not be in a great measure the same. The more general of the terms employed for legal purposes might stand for the same ideas, and be expounded by the same definitions, in systems otherwise different. The same terminology, nomenclature, and principle of arrangement, which would render one system of law definite, clear, and, in Bentham's language, cognoscible, would serve, with additions and variations in minor details, to render the same office for another. Such a result, however, has not been attained by the mode in which existing bodies of law have been formed. Laws having in general been made singly, and their mass having grown by mere aggregation, there has usually been no authoritative arrangement but the chronological one, and no uniform or predetermined phraseology, even in the case of statute law, while in many countries, and pre-eminently in England, the greater portion of the law, the part which serves as the basis for all the rest, does not exist at all in the form of general language, but lies imbedded in judicial decisions, of which even the general principle has to be evolved by abstraction, and made the subject of forensic disputation, when the time comes for applying it. Whatever definiteness in detail, and whatever order or consistency as a whole has been attained by any established system, has, in almost all countries, been given by private writers on law. All the generalisations of legal ideas, and all explicit statements of the meaning of the principal legal terms, have, speaking generally, been the work of these unauthorised persons, have passed from their writings into professional usage, and have ended by being, either expressly or oftener by implication, adopted by governments and legislatures. So far as any great body of law has been systematised, this is the mode in which the work has been done, and, being done piecemeal by persons who had seldom any other object in view than the convenience of professional practice, it has been, as a general rule, done very badly. Instead of classing objects together which agree in their main features, or in the points which are of chief importance to the ends of law, the classes formed consist of things which have either no common qualities or none but such as are common to them with other things. When the bond of connection is real, it seldom lies in the things themselves, but usually in the historical accidents of the particular body of laws. In actual systems of law “most of the leading terms,” says Austin, "are not names of a definite class of objects, but of a heap of heterogeneous objects.”

STUDENTS' SOCIETIES. LAW STUDENTS' DEBATING SOCIETY.-The usual weekly meeting of the above society was held at the Law Institution, Chancery-lane, on Tuesday, the 3rd inst., chairman, Mr. C. Herbert Smith. The subject for debate was,

“ That the case of Paterson v. Gas Light and Coke Company (74 L. T. Rep. 640 ; (1896) 2 Ch. 476) was wrongly decided.” Mr. J. S. Wilkinson opened in the affirmative, and Mr. Mellian Smith seconded. Mr. Haseldine Jones opened in the negative, and Mr. Cawley seconded. The following members also spoke : Messrs. Arthur E. Clarke, Horace Miller. Mr. Seager Berry replied. The motion was lost by nine votes.The subject for debate at the next meeting of the society on Tuesday, the 10th Nov. is, “ That women ought now to be admitted to equal political rights with men.”

BIRMINGHAM.--The members of this society held their annual mock trial at the Temperance Hall on the 30th ult. The case for the plaintiff (Miss Trilby Treddler, a novelist) was that on the 1st April 1896, while riding a bicycle, she was run down by the defendant (Sir Horseless Tandem, Bart), who was driving a motor car. She was injured, and claimed £5000 as damages. The defence, of course, was a denial of negligence. As usual on such occasions those taking part contrived to introduce much amusement into the case, which added much to the interest which their friends took in the proceedings. Mr. H. A. Pearson sat as judge, Mr. H. Williams as his associate, Mr. F. 0. Hopson and Mr. A. F. Lovatt were counsel, and Mr. H. S. Clapham and Mr. F. W. Green, solicitors for the plaintiff. The defendant was represented by Messrs. E. L. Hirsch, B.A., H. H. d’Egville (counsel), J. A. Lacy and F. H. Sharp (solicitors). Mr. H. F. Winterbotham went into the witness-box as the plaintiff, and Mr. E. Newey as the defendant; while the other witnesses were Messrs. S. S. Guest, M. C. Blewitt, C. B. Marston, S. Vernon, H. Eaden, W. Somers, C. H. Smith, F. Minton, and C. Bird.-A meeting was held on the 3rd inst., in the Law Library, Bennett's Hall, Mr. A. H. Coley being in the chair. A debate took place on moot point No. 853 : “ Smith sells some lands to Jones. The title deeds relate to other lands retained by Smith, and include not only the deeds abstracted, but also deeds and documents of a date anterior to the starting-point of the abstracted title. In the conveyance to Jones the usual acknowledgment and undertaking as to the deeds is given. Jones's solicitor insists that the acknowledgment must be made to extend to all the deeds in Smith's possession ; but Smith's solicitor contends that the deeds, &c., to be set out in the schedule, must be confined to those which appear in the abstract, and he refuses to allow his client to bind himself to produce the earlier title deeds. Jones's solicitor wil not give way, and a summons is taken out in Chancery Chambers, under sect. 9 of the Vendor and Purchaser Act 1834, to determine the question in dispute.” The speakers were--In favour of Jones's solicitor: Messrs. F. W. Green, H. Eaden, S. T. Talbot, A. F. Lovatt, G. T. Edalji, G. Green, and F. Whitehouse. In favour of Smith's solicitor : Messrs. J. A. Lacy, H. Winterbotham, F. 0. Hopson, H. S. Clapham, and S. Vernon. The Chairman having summed up, the question was put to the meeting, and decided in favour of Smith's solicitor by a majority of three votes.

BRADFORD.--The second ordinary meeting of the present session of this society was held in the Grand Jury-room, at the West Riding Court, on Wednesday, the 28th ult., Mr. R. J. Sugden being in the chair. The subject far debate was, “ Smith sells some land to Jones. The titledeeds relate to other lands retained by Smith, and include not only the deeds abstracted, but also deeds and documents of a date anterior to the starting-point of the abstracted title. In the conveyance to Jones PROMOTIONS AND APPOINTMENTS. Information intended for publication under the above heading should reach us not later

NOTES AND QUERIES. None are inserted unless the name and address of the writer are sent, not necessarily

for publication, but as a guarantee of bona fides.

Queries. 1. UNCROSSED CHEQUES—Nor NEGOTIABLE.-Owing partly, I believe, to the fact of the Post Office printing the words “Not Negotiable” without a crossing, on Postal Orders, it has become a fairly frequent custom for drawers of uncrossed cheques to write on them the words “ Not Negotiable.” The statute law, as far as I am aware, deals exclusively with the effect of these words on crossed cheques. Is there any authority as to their effect on cheques that are not crossed ?

NOT NEGOTIABLE.

2. DIVORCE_NAME OF WOMAN.-A woman married twice divorces her second husband. What name will legally describe her in a deed or will ? Does she take her former name before her second marriage ? Authorities will oblige.

DOUBTING.

the usual acknowledgment and undertaking as to the deeds is given. Jones's solicitor insists that the acknowledgment must be made to extend to all the deeds in Smith's possession, but Smith's solicitor contends that the deeds, &c., to be set out in the schedule must be confined to those which appear in the abstract, and he refuses to allow his client to bind himself to produce the earlier title deeds. Jones's solicitor will not give way, and a summons is taken out in Chancery chambers, under sect. 9 of the Vendor and Purchaser Act 1874, to determine the question in dispute. What will be the judge's decision ?” Mr. J. Greaves opened on behalf of the purchaser Jones, being supported by Mr. J. W. Perkins. He was opposed by Mr. H. Hammond for the negative, who was seconded by Mr. J. H. Heap. Messrs. Barraclough, Turnbull, Bolton, Dunn, and Marsden also spoke. After the Chairman had summed up & vote was taken, which resulted in favour of the negative by a majority of eight.

LEEDS.—The fourth ordinary meeting of the half session was held on Monday evening, at the Law Institute, Albion-place, Mr. J. A. Compston, barrister, in the chair. The subject for debate was as follows : “Was the case of South Staffordshire Waterworks Company v. Sharman rightly decided ?” This was a case in which the defendant, a labourer employed to clean out a pool, the property of the plaintiffs, found in the mud two gold rings. An action being brought by the plaintiffs for delivery of the rings to them, the County Court judge gave a verdict in favour of the defendant. The plaintiffs appealed, and the Divisional Court held that they (plaintiffs) were entitled. Mr. A. E. Masser led in the affirmative, and argued that the pool being the property of the plaintiffs they were in possession of everything in it whether they knew of its presence or not. He relied on the cases of Reg. v. Roe and Elwes v. Brigg Gas Company. Mr. W. Bowling, for the negative, contended that the rings were in no way part of the freehold, and, that being so, it did not matter whether the plaintiffs were freeholders or not. In support of his contention he quoted the cases of Bridges v. Hawkesworth and Armory v. Delamirie. After an animated discassion in which all the members present took part, the Chairman summed up, and; a vote being taken, there was a majority of two for the negative.

MANCHESTER.--The first ordinary meeting of the session of this society was held on Tuesday, the 27th ult., Mr. A. C. Maberly, barrister-at-law, in the chair. Twenty-four new members were elected. Mr. F. S. Oppenheim proposed that law students of Owens College attending the day classes with the bona fide intention of taking a law degree should be eligible for election as ordinary members of the society. This was agreed to unanimously. A debate followed on the following lines : “Smith sells some lands to Jones. The title deeds relate to other lands retained by Smith, and include not only the deeds abstracted but also deeds and documents of a date anterior to the starting point of the abstracted title. In the conveyance to Jones the usual acknowledgment and undertaking as to the deeds is given. Jones's solicitor insists that the acknowledgment must be made to extend to all the deeds in Smith's possession ; but Smith's solicitor contends that the deeds, &c. to be set out in the schedule must be confined to those which appear in the abstract, and he refuses to allow his client to bind himself to produce the earlier title deeds. Jones's solicitor will not give way, and a summons is taken out in Chancery Chambers under sect. 9 of the Vendor and Purchaser Act 1894 to determine the question in dispute. What will be the judge's decision ? Mr. C. A. Buckley opened in favour of Smith's contention, and was supported by Messrs. E. C. Pearson, F. Preston, P. Hibberd, S. Taylor, E. A. W. Wragg, F. H. Williamson, and R. V. Clayton. Mr. F. W Watson opposed the motion, and was followed by Messrs. W. A. Wilkinson, F. G. Hindle, F. S. Oppenheim, and J. D. Pennington. The Chairman summed up the debate in favour of Smith's contention, and the meeting indorsed the opinion by a majority of nineteen.

NEWCASTLE-UPON-TYNE.-An adjourned annual meeting of the above society was held on Wednesday, the 28th alt., in the library, for the parpose of electing a treasurer for the ensuing year, Mr. H. C. Harvey, M.A., in the chair. On the motion of Mr. E. C. Sanders (secretary), seconded by Mr. A. D. Minton Senhouse, Mr. H. F. Heath was unanimously elected treasurer. The first general meeting was immediately afterwards held. Mr. H. C. Harvey, M.A., in the chair. A motion to change the time of meeting was lost, so that for the remainder of the year the meetings will be held at 7 p.m. as heretofore. The subject of debate was as follows:--October “Law Notes" Moot: “ Smith sells some lands to Jones. The title deeds relate to other lands retained by Smith, and include not only the deeds abstracted, but also deeds and documents of a date anterior to the starting-point of the abstracted title. In the conveyance to Jones, the usual acknowledgment and undertaking as to the deeds is given. Jones's solicitor insists that the acknowledgment must be made to extend to all the deeds in Smith's possession ; but Smith's solicitor contends that the deeds, &c., to be set out in the schedule must be confined to those which appear in the abstract, and he refuses to allow his client to bind himself to produce the earlier title deeds. Jones solicitor will not give way, and a summons is taken out in Chancery Chambers, under sect. 9 of the Vendor and Purchaser Act 1874, to determine the question in dispute. What will be the judge's decision ?" Mr. A. D. Minton Senhouse and Mr. J. H. Youll argued that Jones was right; Mr. G. A. Carpenter and Mr. C. S. Hadaway argued in favour of Smith's contention. There was a very keen debate, Messrs. Goodman, Elsdon, Holmes, Bruce, Stewart, Shortt, Chapman, Pybus, and Boothroyd also joining in the discussion. The Chairman summed up very fully, and on putting the question it was decided by a majority of eight that Smith's contention was right. A cordial vote of thanks was accorded to the chairman, who, in response, congratulated the society on the very large attendance (33) present.

3. SPORTING RATES.- Is a tenant of sporting rights only liable for rates on the sporting rights as between himself and landlord where the tenancy agreement is silent on the point of who shall pay these rates ? What is the law, and is there any established custom ? Authorities will oblige.

MANCHESTER AND LIVERPOOL ASSIZE ACTIONS.

COMMERCIAL CAUSES AT THE AUTUMN ASSIZE. For the next ensuing Liverpool Assize, beginning the 14th Nov., and the Manchester resumed Assize, beginning the 30th Nov., commercial causes may, with the leave of the judge, to be obtained on summons, be entered for trial in a separate list to be entitled the “ Commercial List.”

QUEEN'S BENCH DIVISIONAL COURTS.-ORDER

OF BUSINESS.

FOR THE WEEK ENDING Nov. 14. Monday and Tuesday-Ex parte motions on the Crown side. Crown Paper.

Wednesday and Thursday-Ex parte and opposed motions on the Civil side. Special Paper.

Friday--Ex parte motions generally. Opposed motions on the Civil side. Special Paper.

Saturday-Registration Appeals.

COMMERCIAL CAUSES. Great inconvenience has been caused in the arrangement of the Commercial List of cases, through parties who have had days fixed for trial not apprising the Court of the settlement or withdrawal of such cases. The result has been that other parties who would have been able to try their cases on those days have been unable to secure them, and days are thereby frequently wasted so far as the Commercial List is concerned.

The parties are required, therefore, in cases for which days have already been fixed, to give, where time will admit of it, notice to the clerk to the judge having charge of the Commercial List, seven days before the day fixed for trial that they will be prepared to try on such day, otherwise such cases will be struck out of the list.

Where time will not admit of seven days' notice, the earliest practicable notice must be given.

As to cases in which days for trial shall bereafter be fixed, a like notice must be given (unless otherwise specially ordered), and on failure to give the required notice in any case, such case will be struck out of the list.

Order dated the 25th June 1896.
