SUNDERLAND LAW SOCIETY. The twenty-fifth annual general meeting of the Sunderland Incorporated Law Society was held on the 23rd ult. in the County Court, John-street. There were present: Mr. Errington Huntley (president), Messrs. W. B. Allan, B.A., LL.B., C. W. P. Barker, J. J. Bentham, A.C. Blumer, J.T.C. Bolam, A. G. Boulton, T. E. Bryers, J. F. Burnicle, E. S.

Walker, J. Wallace, and Kelso Storey (hon. sec.). Mr. A. R. Gales and Col. T. C. McKenzie wrote regretting their inability to be present. The annual report of the committee was adopted, from which it appeared that there were ninety-nine solicitors practising in Sunderland, of whom seventy-seven were members of the society. The treasurer's account showed a balance at present in hand of £124, of which it was resolved to invest £50 in the Post-office Savings Bank and to spend £30 in books for the library, which is now a valuable adjunct to the society. The election of officers for the ensuing year then took place. Mr. A. G. Boulton was unanimously elected president. Mr. Boulton passed the final examination with honours in 1872, and was admitted a solicitor in the following year. He has been twenty-one years a member of this society, during seven years of which he acted as honorary secretary and six years as honorary treasurer. He has also filled the office of vice-president of the society. Mr. J. F. Burnicle was elected vice-president, and Mr. J. T. Green honorary treasurer. Committee : The ex-president (Mr. E. Huntly), Messrs. T. Steel, J.P., A. R. Gales, J. J. Bentham, T. 0. McKenzie, A. T. Shepherd, J. G. Marshall, C. R. Walker, L. Iliff, LL.B., and J. T. C. Bolam.

BUILDING SOCIETY INCOME Tax.—Is a terminating society worked on the ballot and sale system liable to income tax under Schedule E. in respect of the purchase money for appropriations, such purchase money being secured with the advance on mortgage in the usual way and being carried as repaid into the general fund of the society for the purpose of appropriations to other members ? Such purchase money or premiums are not distributed as profit until the termination of the society and until that period is contingent or prospective profit only and as such inserted in the annual balance-sheet of the society. If liable to tax, is the society entitled to deduct working expenses Up to last year the Inland Revenue anthorities do not appear to have assessed these societies.
THE HILARY BAR EXAMINATIONS. ON perusal of the questions at the recent “pass” examinations candi. dates who bad the misfortune of being postponed in October till the next Easter examination may rightly consider themselves victims of a certain amount of injustice. There is no comparison between their relative stiffness. It will be incumbent on the Council of Legal Education, if they deem it salutary to postpone men at one examination for several terms, to ensure something resembling uniformity of standard. Considering the wonderfal oscillations in the past, it would be pretty safe to predict that these unfortunate men (some of whom were excluded till Trinity), after having been excluded from two or three easy examinations which they might have passed, will be readmitted on an occasion at which they will again fail, through the examination becoming suddenly twice as difficult. As regards conveyancing and real property, the questions were what is usually termed "potty.” It is hard to see how many could stumble over the effect of a devise “ to A.” before and since 1835, or “how are estates tail barred?" Then the farce proceeds with such questions as, “ In what cases, if any, is a deed necessary for the creation of a valid lease ? and “ Are covenants for title now set forth in purchase deeds ? " &c. But it is unnecessary to study the paper deeply, as it can be summed up by stating that it consisted chiefly of the easiest questions in real property which can possibly be set. The hardest were probably those on intestacy; although the use of Latin phraseology, e.g., propositus, does not make a question hard, still it looks imposing. The examiner in Common Law displayed more steadiness as regards maintaining uniformity in the quality of his questions. Question 3, however, on the rights of a co-surety against debtor, creditor, and other co-sureties, is one which generally appears at the Intermediate Solicitors' Examination. The law of torts did not come in for much attention, and we only notice one on conversion by bailees, and another on the facts of Stanley v. Powell, in which an unfortunate“ beater," who had his eye destroyed by a glancing shot, became the hero of a leading case. There were some nice questions on the law of contract, notably Question 4, on continuing guarantees, and the point decided in Lloyds v. Harper, and another on the “ liability of a transferor by delivery only.” Question 1, on the liability of a common carrier, and Question 9, on liens general and particular, went over ground with which most law students are fairly familiar. Of “wagering and gaming " also they are not altogether ignorant, and this is a subject which has a terrible fascination for examiners both at the Council of Legal Education and the Incorporated Law Society, and although we have rarely noticed a “ double event,” still it is “odds" it appears at either the one or the other examination held in the same term. The Equity paper opened with the role in Dearle v. Hall. Then followed some fairly easy questions on " trusts." Question 4, as it involved something practical, viz., the form of a foreclosure order, would be beyond the bulk of Bar students. But, as it was followed by a question requiring an explanation of some every-day legal phrases, e.g., "equity of redemption,' marshalling," "stop-order,” &c., it is evident that on the whole they had a very easy time of it. Question 6, on the circumstances under which a third mortgagee can obtain priority over a second, was easy. Of the two questions in partnership the first was long.worded, but the second could easily be disposed of by some knowledge of Cleather v. Twisden. The paper closed with two easy questions on specific performance, one of which involved practically the law laid down in Lumley v. Wagner. The examiner in Evidence, Procedure, &c., evidently wanted to air his Latin, and was not contented with a few permissible phrases such as judgment in rem., but managed to change the good old phrases “latent and patent ambiguity into “ ambiguitas latens” and “ ambiguitas patens.” It is a favourite trick of examiners when they ask an easy question to couch it in pompous phraseology, and of course Latin serves the turn very well. We also notice tbat sometimes the language almost gets poetical, and in Question 3 he asks “ Wbat means exist for compelling the attendance of a witness at Nisi Prius (1) when he is a free man, (2) when he is in custody?" We shall soon have our judges condemning persons to slavery. The questions in civil procedure were of a very ordinary type. As regards the law of crimes, candidates were required to draw an indictment for murder, and to dilate with examples on the amount of provocation wbich would reduce murder to manslaughter. We trust they did not discover such provocation in the last riddle about the man with the wives B, C, D, E, which, however, was not of the same difficulty as that put by the Sadduceos, and we trust they were fully armed with a knowledge of Reg. v. Willshire.

IN THE MATTER OF THE BANKRUPTCY ACTS 1883
AND 1890. Whereas by virtue of certain Orders dated respectively the 31st March 1890, the 31st Dec. 1890, and the 30th July 1896, the Board of Trade have appointed Edwin Leadam Hough, Harold de Vaux Brougham, and Alfred Henry Wildy to be Official Receivers for the Bankruptcy District of the High Court, and the Board of Trade have directed that, as regards all bankruptcy proceedings in the High Court, the estates of debtors, and the duties of official receivers in relation thereto, shall be distributed amongst and performed by the said Edwin Leadain Hough, Harold de Vanx Brougham, and Alfred Henry Wildy, as in the said Orders part cularly mentioned.
And whereas it is desired to alter and adjust the distribution of the said debtors' estates and the duties in relation thereto amongst the said official receivers of the High Court.
Now, therefore, the Board of Trade hereby order that, as regards all bankruptcy proceedings instituted under the Bankruptcy Acts 1883 and 1890, which on the 31st day of Dec. 1896 are pending in, or which after that date mav be instituted in, or transferred to, the High Court, each of the several official receivers specified in the second column of the schedule hereto, shall, in respect of tho proceedings in which the initial of the first surname of the debtor or debtors is any of the letters specified opposite to the name of such official receiver in the first column, be the official receiver of the estates of the debtors in such proceedings, and discharge the duties of snch official receiver, in relation to such estates. Dated this 21st day of Dec. 1896.

THE “ANNUAL PRACTICE.”—In my appreciation of the “ Annual Practice," and of the ability of its editors, I yield to no one, but I viar with dismay the ever-increasing bulk of the first volume. I beg to suggest the transfer to Vol. II. of the Table of Cases, which occupios about 200 pages of Vol. T. If this were done, the thickness of Vol. I. would be materially diminished, and I do not think that the utility of the work, as a book of ready reference, would be seriously impaired. In ninety-nine cases out of one hundred one consults the “ Annual Practice by the aid of the index only, or by direct reference to the orders and rules. I make this suggestion through your columns in preference to making it privately to the courteous editors, not because I am apprehensive that, were I to write them on the subject, my letter would not receive all tho

He was one of the witnesses before the committee of inquiry, appointed, on the motion of Mr. Newdigate, as to the inspection of monasteries and convents. Amongst lawyers, Mr. Cuddon's name will be most familiar on account of the work which he wrote on copyhold tenure, and his extensive experience in manorial customs.

The promotion of Mr. Justice Chitty to the Court of Appeal is a well-merited recognition of the valuable services rendered by him as a judge of the Chancery Division. That Mr. Justice CHITTY was educated at Eton and was in the eleven there, that he took a first in classics at Oxford, was a Fellow of Exeter College, and twice rowed stroke in the boat, that he has always been equally distinguished both in bodily and intellectual attainments, that he is the embodiment of courage, courtesy, and common sense, are well known to all. But that he is also one of the most exact and learned lawyers of his day, that he has a rapid mastery of the material points in a case, that he has a delicate appreciation of the meaning of words and a rare felicity of expression, are known perhaps only to the initiated. If he has ever given utterance from the Bench to extra-judicial sentiments—and what judge has not ?-assuredly he has talked good sense. His long familiarity with the practice of the Chancery Division rendered him an unusually good judge in chambers, and, without detraction, it may be said that his loss in that direction will be a serious one. His presence in the Court of Appeal will add strength to that tribunal, and we doubt no, that Lord Justice CHITTY will take rank as one of the ablest equity lawyers of his day and generation.

A LORD Justiceship of Appeal, a High Court Judgeship, a County Court Judgeship and a Metropolitan Magistrateship form a fair amount of legal patronage for the Government in a single week. Lord HALSBURY fills a County Court vacancy apparently immediately on receipt of a resignation--not a bad plan. Mr. DUNDAS GARDINER is a gentleman who once enjoyed a large practice at the junior Chancery Bar, and is a capital musician. The Chancery Bar cannot complain that the Common Law Chancellor does not recognise its claim to an equal share of these minor judicial appointments.
The appeals for hearing in the ensuing Sittings number 127 -113 final and 14 interlocutory.
The causes and matters in Chancery number 620.

Thc Divisional Court business of the Queen's Bench Division shows a reduction of arrears, there being seven
cases in the special paper, eight opposed motions, seventy-one cases in the Crown paper, and twenty-five in the Revenue paper--a total of 111.
The Nisi Prius Cause List in the Queen's Bench Division for the ensuing sittings shows an increase over last year. The total is 660, made up as follows: 223 special juries ; 162 commou juries; commercial causes, 7; assigned actions, 6; under Order XIV., 10.
In Ireland, instead of an increase, according to the Irish Law Times, there has been so remarkable a decline that, if continued, it points to the speedy extinction of contentious business in the Irish courts.
