Queries. 19. FISHERY.-Has it been expressly decided by an English court whether or no the public have a right to fish in a navigable river above the ebb and flow of the tide ? I understand there are recent decisions negativing the right. References will oblige.
RETIREMENT OF JUDGES.— Tae salary of a retiring judge is a mere fleabite as regards our public revenue ; and I think that in the great majority of instances a new judge would do better work than one of more than fifteen years' service. The frequent infusion of new blood on the Bench, especially of men in the prime of life, would tend to keep the adminis. tration of the laws more abreast of the age, and to the more speedy correction of any defect which experience had brought to light. Nor can I regard the retirement of a competent judge on a suitable pension as by any means an unmixed evil. We want more men of leisure and ability fully acquainted with the existing law and practice, its merits and its defects. A few retired judges in the House of Commons would, I think, be much more useful as regards the amendment of the laws or new legal enactments than the same number of practising barristers. And even out of the House they could put their legal knowledge to such excellent uses as Mr. Montagu Crackanthorpe and Sir H. B. Poland are doing. If a judge is not retired until he is past his labour he is useless for these purposes, while his position on the Bench before retirement keeps him silent on many points on which the public might derive much profit from his views.
20. COMPANY-TRANSFER OF SHARES-BANKRUPTCY.-A. the regis. tered proprietor of shares in a limited company transfers same to B. and bands certificates to him. B. neglects to register transfers for six months. In the meantime A. becomes bankrupt. Is the company justified in registering transfer after notice of bankruptcy ?

SOLICITORS' MANAGING CLERKS' ASSOCIATION.-I observe that one of the “ Occasional Notes” in your issue of the 2nd inst. refers to the fact of this association having received a donation of £100, and it is asked, " What will they do with the money ? ” and it is also suggested that possibly it was intended for the United Law Clerks' Society. May I be allowed to tell the author of the note, through you, that the association will have no difficulty in applying the money in furthering its objects, though it is not a charitable association, and that, as I personally know the donor and as the amount was paid to me as treasurer, I am in a position to inform your querist that the donation was not intended for the United Law Clerks' Society, but beyond question for this association. The donation was absolutely unsolicited, and was promised subject to the performance of certain conditions. I may perhaps add that the objects of this association do not in any way conflict with those of the United Law Clerks' Society, but on the contrary they, the two bodies, can safely and properly exist side by side, each having for its objects the benefit of solicitors' clerks, though the one proceeds on lines entirely different to those governing the other.

ADMINISTERING THE OATH.-Since the condemnation by medical men and others for sanitary reasons (which appear to be well grounded) of the old form of administering oaths on the Testament, a real practical difficulty has arisen which ought to be removed. There is a reluctance to resort to the Scotch oath, which may be said to be a clumsy method and unsuited to an English police-court. The procedure should be simple and binding, rendering a witness liable for perjury. There seems to be an impression that the Legislature will bave to be resorted to. This should, if possible, be avoided, seeing that Parliament would, in accordance with its modern practice, be sure to make things worse. All that is required is a short form dispensing with the Testament which might be generally adopted. It is much more convenient to administer an oath than that each individual should, as it were, be taught the oath he is about to take, and be asked to repeat it. Looking at 1 & 2 Vict. c. 105, at Mildrane's case and the other cases quoted in Oke, 13th edit., vol. i., p. 86, and bear. ing in mind the fundamental principle that all that is wanted is that an oath shall be administered in such a form as is binding on the witness's conscience and render him liable for perjury, I submit that the following is a good oath, and may be properly administered without a Testament: “ You swear that the evidence you shall give shall be the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, so help you God, in token whereof and that you declare this oath to be binding hold up your hand.” I shall be much obliged if you will kindly give me your own views as to this, and to hear also what any of your corr pondents may have to say about it, because, if the above form be good, there is an end of the difficulty.
A JUSTICES' CLERK.
THE LONDON LL.B. THE "pass” examination for this degree, which falls midway between the December Bar examination and the Solicitors' Final, always affords a fair opportunity for testing the respective merits of various systems of legal education. Since the University as at present constituted remains an examining body merely, students who have relied on their private reading, or the services of an outside “coach,” can compete on equal terms with those who have sat at the feet of the lecturers at the Council of Legal Education, or the Incorporated Law Society, without fear of falling foul of the favourite " tit-bits” of some tutor who is probably also examining, or of being examined merely on some limited field of knowledge. For the purpose of replacing the present effete machinery of the Council of Legal Education, or the abortive attempt of the Incorporated Law Society to teach subjects (wbich to some extent ought to be learnt in the office), by something better, a great central law university migbt constitute a boon, but it will have its disadvantages in depriving the country of a common battle-field for testing the capacity of stadents variously trained. At present we have a body of impartial men who bave made their mark in the Profession, but who do not teach, examining anybody who chooses to pay a small fee and pass a previous examination in the ordinary subjects of a liberal education. Any change, although it may have some advan. tages, will entail a loss, for we all know what a teaching body conducting its own examinations means in the long run.
At the recent examination the University fully maintained its reputation. Candidates as usual were distinctly reminded to give reasons for their answers to the problems propounded, which often consisted of the facts of a decided though not necessarily a recent case, or of facts somewhat similar, from which an analogy or distinction might be drawn. The first Common Law paper opened with four searching questions on contract law, and dealt with agency, the of inquiry on discounting a bill, interest on debts and sale of goods. Then followed some easier questions on the special subjects of the year, viz., false imprisonment and malicious prosecution. The remaining questions were on crimes and the law of evidence ; the latter subject has always been a leading feature at the University, while at one time it was almost entirely neglected at the Bar examinations, although of late years there has been a little awakening. The afternoon paper went very much over the same ground, but the questions appear easier; and the facts of two comparatively recent cases, viz., Barker v. Furlong and Ultzen v. Nichols, turn up. There must have been some little slip in the arrangements, for, at the examination in common law, although candidates are reminded to give reasons, nothing is mentioned about commencing answers on a separate leaf, and against writing at the back of a leaf, while on the second day these admo. nitions duly appear.
The Real and Personal Property paper was largely devoted to the special subjects of the syllabus, viz., powers, commons, and easements. As regards general points, the Contingent Remainders Act (40 & 41 Vict. c. 33) was required. Question 7 seems very wide, “Sketch shortly the history of English law with regard to the inclosure of commons.” Under the heading of powers the examiner managed to drag in a practical point on estate duty, and the paper escaped the slur of becoming too academic. The Equity paper was a good all-round test. Many candidates might have given a good deal of time to the special subject of resulting trusts, and yet overlooked the important House of Lords decision in Cooke v. Smith, but the student with any fairly wide range of reading would be fairly familiar with it. The LL.B. degree should not be attempted by a man who intends to be a schoolmaster, and who merely wishes to get a degree and to shirk the ordeal of the B.A., but by those who intend or hope to make law their profession. The syllabus of equity subjects included the phrase “ securities, but the event proved that it meant, what every sensible person expected it meant, mortgages pure and simple, and not such common law matters as "securities for the peace and good behaviour," &c. As regards Roman Law the questions from the Digest were fairly easy. This generally happens when there is no published translation of the portion of Digest selected, and we are not aware of any translation of De Interdictis. The questions on the History of Roman Law were not out of the way, perhaps a little too much on subjects on which a student would be inclined to be sketchy, and they may result in “ploughing” a good many.
CONVEYANCING IN CORNWALL.-I can corroborate to the letter the facts stated by“ Lex” in your last issue. Last September I was instructed by a purchaser to act for him on the purchase of property situate in Newquay, Cornwall. He informed me he had signed a contract. On perusing same, I was astonished to find that the vendor's solicitor, who practises at New quay, had inserted a clause to the effect that he should act for both parties, and also specifying his remuneration. The purchaser assured me the clause was inserted without consulting him in the matter. The consequence was, I only got remunerated for preparing the mortgage deed. Surely this is a matter where the Incorporated Law Society might, with advantage, institute inquiry in the interests of its country members as to the prevailing practice in the county of Cornwall, and use its influence to bring about a more equitable state of things.

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 12th inst. ; chairman, Mr. Herbert Smith. The subject for debate was: DXXVII.. “ That the case of Fricker v. Van Grutten (75 L. T. Rep. 117; (1896) 2 Ch. 649) was wrongly decided.” Mr. A. W. Watson opened in the affirmative, and Mr. E. L. Chapman seconded ; Mr. G. Prosseropened in the negative, and Mr. W. Hudson seconded. The following members also spoke : Messrs. Archer, White, Gibson, Hair, Woodhouse. Mr. Watson having replied, the Chairman summed up, and on being put to the meeting the motion was carried by one vote.- The subject for debate at the next meeting of the society on Tuesday, the 19th Jan. 1897, is " That International Bimetallism is practicable and desirable,” on wbich subject Mr. Henry McNeil, the secretary of the Bimetallic League, will open the debate in the affirmative, and the Hon. George Peel, the secretary of the Gold Standard Defence Association, in the negative.
HASTINGS AND ST. LEONARDS.--The second annual dinner of this society was held at the Palace Hotel, Hastings, on Thursday the 7th inst. Mr. Ben F. Meadows (town clerk) was in the chair, and the company to the number of about twenty, included as guests Mr. F. A. Inderwick, Q.C., and C. F. Baker (chief constable). Several gentlemen who had taken tickets found themselves unable to attend, and sent letters explaining absence. The President of the society (Lord Russell of Killowen) wrote expressing his regret at being unable to be present on this occasion, but that he hoped to attend the next dinner. The following also sent letters of apology: Mr. Justice Grantham (vice president), the Recorder, Mr. Albert Gibson (editor of Law Notes), Mr. D. W. Grantham, Mr. A. D. Thorpe, Mr. E. Chalinder (hon. treasurer), Mr. C. Sheppard, and Mr. J. R. Cochran. Music was alternated with the speaking, and songs were contributed by Messrs. F. G. Langham, E. H. Langham, H. G. Phillips, A. M. Elliott, and H. Poole (pianist). A very enjoyable evening was spent, the company separating at midnight. Mr. Inderwick has intimated his intention of becoming a member of the society.-On the 21st inst., Mr. A. H. Trevor, M.A., barrister-at-law, will deliver a lecture on the “Law of Negotiability and Negotiable Instruments."
HULL.-The annual dinner of the Hull Law Students' Society was held on the 7th inst., at the Station hotel, the president (Mr. A. M. Jackson) in the chair. Amongst those present were Mr. H. S. Lambert, Mr. T. Hart, Mr. Sidney Clarke, Dr. T. C. Jackson, Ir. R. W. Aske,, Mr. R. Ferens, Mr. Alan Park, Mr. H. Hall, Mr, H. T. Kemp, Mr. J.H. Hill, Mr. T. L. Locking, Mr. Moss-Blundell, and Mr. J. T. Ferens (hon. sec.). The hon. secretary acknowledged apologies for absence from Mr. John Forbes, Q.C. (the Recorder), his Honour Judge Bedwell, his Worship the Mayor of Huil, his Worship the Sheriff of Hull, Mr. H. H. Grotrian, and Mr. E. C. Twiss.-The Chairman having submitted “ The Queen,” Dr. T. C. Jackson proposed “The Bench and the Bar.” It was the greatest compliment that one could pay to the Bench and the Bar, he said, that there was so little to say about them. The English judiciary was at present in an extremely high state of efficiency. The only room for grievance was that some of the older and more learned judges would not retire to make room for the younger men, and give a leg-up right down to almost all the fresher members of the Profession. It was always said that a judge had to pass through three stages. The first was when he had just been appointed, and was so nervous that he thought everything he did was
wrong ; the second was when he was beginning to feel his feet, and was practically assured that all he did was right; the third was when he didn't care a hang whether he was right or wrong. He had much pleasure in coupling with the toast the names of Mr. H. B. Grotrian and Mr. H. T. Kemp, whom he was sure they would hope to see occupy the last stage at which the judges arrived.—Mr. H. B. Grotrian, acknowledged the first part of the compliment. Mr. H. T. Kemp thought that any man who had the privilege of practising in Hull was a lucky man--because, whether they appeared before the magnificent specimen of humanity his Honour Judge Bedwell, or that most learned and canny Scot who sat in the Sessions Court, or their most painstaking and courteous stipendiary, they always received the greatest possible amount of kindness, courtesy, and consideration.—Mr. R. W. Aske gave the toast of “The Profession.” He said that the topical historical lawyer had practically died out at the present time, and the Profession comprised none but men who were men of truth, and could be deemed worthy of the attributes and prestiges of the Profession. He ventured to say that the Legal Profession exercised the utmost influence upon all phases and classes of life, and that that influence had the most beneficial results in all directions.-Mr. H. Lambert, in a few brief and well-chosen words, responded.—The toast of " Mr. J. T. Hill," the vice president, and the only surviving solicitor of the pre-Victorian era in Hall, was next proposed by the Chairman and musically honoured.“ The Hull Law Society,''
;" “ The Hull Law Students' Society,” and “The President” followed. The following gentlemen-Messrs. E. Manston, Wilson, W. W. Hall, H. B. Jackson, T. Hart, R. Slack, and H. Thompson, ---contributed to the harmony of the meeting.
