Sell's Directory of Registered Telegraphic Addresses 1897 (the twelfth annual issue) is compiled from official lists supplied by authority of the Postmaster-General, and the work becomes of increasing usefulness with the great increase of the telegraph and telephone systems. In addition to the various articles on British trade and foreign competition, there are included special articles and figures for 1895 and 1896 relating to the following great industries, iron and steel, shipbuilding and shipping, coal, petroleum, agriculture, textiles, tea and sugar, and chemicals.

We have received T. B. Browne's Advertiser's A B C and Advertisement Press Directory for 1897. The book, as usual, covers an immense number of details calculated to be of service to advertisers, journalists, and all others having transactions of any kind with newspapers, periodicals, and magazines. With regard to the Home Press, fac-simile reproductions of many papers and magazines are given, and elaborate information furnished as to advertisement rates, circulations, and other matters of especial help to advertisers. The Foreign and Colonial Section is also made more serviceable by the addition of illustrations, and by special articles giving valuable information to the trading community as to the chief directions in which improved commercial relations with the countries referred to may be successfully cultivated. This new edition (the eleventh) makes over 1100 pages.

CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY. AT a Congregation on the 14th inst., Dr. Bond was appointed a member of the Special Board for Law.

The degree of LL.M. was conferred on William de B. Herbert (Trinity) and William E. C. Barrett (Clare).

CRIMINAL PROCEDURE.-In his letter to the Times of the 19th Jan. Sir H. Poland proposes, among other useful suggestions for the reform of our criminal procedure at assizes, the appointment of “commissioners or judges of inferior rank" to do the routine work of the assizes. This proposal appears to me to involve unnecessary elaboration and expense We have already recorders in almost every county--gentlemen of considerable standing at the Bar, and experienced in criminal business. The simple remedy for the present state of things would be to enlarge the jurisdiction of quarter sessions, so as to enable them to try all cases except murder and manslaughter, and to divide the counties into districts round each quarter sessions borough, in which cases from the district would be tried. Thus: (1) prisoners would be tried at regular intervals of tbree months in the locality from which the witnesses would come ; (2) the judges would only come down for cases of murder and such other serious cases as might be reserved for them ; (3) the non-professional chairmen of quarter sessions would be relieved from duties which the ablest of them cannot discharge as satisfactorily as trained lawyers ; (4) the expense to the country would be nil, for the additional salary to be paid to a recorder, who would not be debarred from practice except in the criminal court in his own county, would be much more than saved in the reduction of the cost of the assizes on the present system.


UNIVERSITY OF LONDON. The following were the successful candidates at the recent examina. tions :-

ADMINISTERING THE OATH.--The letter of “ A Justices' Clerk," in your last issue, is amusing, especially the clause, “ There seems to be an impression that the Legislature will have to be resorted to.” The Legislature was resorted to so far back as 1888, when it was enacted by 51 & 52 Vict. c. 46, sect. 5: “If any person to whom an oath is administered desires to swear with uplifted hand in the form and manner in which an oath is usually administered in Scotland, he shall be permitted so to do, and the oath shall be administered to him in such form and manner without further question.” This section applies quite regardless of religious belief, and was passed simply to obviate the necessity of kissing the book. It is somewhat remarkable that there is such universal ignorance of the above-mentioned Act as the letter of “A Justices' Clerk” discloses.



BUSINESS IN THE DIVORCE COURT.--Suitors in the Divorce Court cannot complain of any delay in the hearing of causes in that court. We filed a petition in an undefended suit on the 5th Dec. last, and on the 14th inst, the cause was heard and a decree nisi granted. The cause was tried and disposed of within six weeks of being commenced, and in this period is included the Christmas vacation.



CORONERS' JURIES,— With reference to your editorial note on the question of juries and the preparation of the list of jurors, I should like to call attention to the fact that the coroner who contested the case of Re Dutton, at the time of such decision, was in the habit of summoning his juries from the list of ratepayers, and not from the jury list, and he continues to do so, and I have been informed that other coroners do the

In consequence of this, people both in and out of the Profession who are exempt from serving on juries and are not on the jury list, are coustantly being summoned and put to inconvenience by having to attend and claim exemption to save being fined. I myself was summoned a short time back, but returned the summons to the coroner, stating that I concluded his officer had made a mistake, and of course I heard nothing further of it. This system does not appear to me to be right, and I think that some public attention should be called to the matter, so that it can be put on a proper footing, and you may possibly see your way to make some comment upon the matter in the Law TIMES. I may mention that I am the respondent in the case of Re Dutton,


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 19th inst. ; chairman, Mr. Seager-Berry. The subject for debate was: “That International Bimetallism is practicable and desirable," Mr. Henry McNeil (the secretary of the Bimetallic League) opened in the affirmative; the Hon. George Peel (the secretary of the Gold Standard Defence Association) opened in the negative. The following members also spoke : Messrs. A. W. Watson, J. S. Wilkinson, Neville Tebbutt Smith, H. R. Beeton, C. Herbert Smith. Hamilton Fox. The motion was lost by eight votes.--The subject for debate at the next meeting of the society on Tuesday, the 26th Jan., is, “That the case of Elgood v. Harris (1896) 2 Q. B. 401) was wrongly decided.”

BOURNEMOUTH AND DISTRICT.—On the 5th Jan. there was a debate on the following subject : “ A. lets to B., as tenant for the year, a small farm' with the use of 'the cow belonging to A. The use of the cow is included in, but makes the rent paid by B. higher than if there was no

The cow is sent to bull by A. and bas a calf. Does the calf, or its value if sold, belong to A. ?” Mr. R. S. Ely opened in the affirmative, Mr. C. E. Dawson in the negative, and the meeting decided that the calf belonged to B.

CARDIFF.--The first “ smoker and concert in connection with the recently-formed Cardiff Law Students' Debating Society was held in the Park Hotel, on Saturday evening, the 16th inst. Mr. George David, solicitor, presided, and amongst those on the platform with him were the Deputy-Mayor (Councillor Morgan Morgan), Councillor Lewis Morgan, Messrs. T. R. Hunt, Lloyd Meyrick, W. J. Board (deputy town clerk), Ben Harris, Gilbert Robertson, J. H. Morgan, E. Pocock, J. Goodfellow, and A. E. S. Thomas and T. E. Harris, joint secretaries.- The Chairman

Queries. 21. LICENSING LAW.-What is the Act of Parliament to which Mr. Curtis Bennett referred as throwing the onus on a publican of proving that a man did not get drunk in his public-house, who was seen to leave it drunk ? (LAW TIMES, Jan. 16, p. 242). The writer knows of no Act in force but the Licensing Act of 1872.



referred to the valuable assistance to be derived professionally from a society such as that, and expressed the hope and belief that the present students would uphold the high legal status which solicitors of Cardiff had attained. In conclusion, he proposed success to the society. The toast was cordially pledged.--The Deputy-Mayor echoed the sentiments of the chairman, remarking that he was sure when the law students of the town qualified they would undoubtedly uphold the high reputation their predecessors had achieved.--Mr. W. J. Board (deputy town clerk) subsequently proposed the toast " The Chairman,” stating that Mr. David had not only been the means of establishing the society, but had given life to it by getting the law students to join, and many prominent solicitors of the town to become members, either as vice-presidents or honorary members. The toast was drunk with musical honours.-

The Chairman, in acknowledging, said it would ever be his duty to promote the interests of the law students and the Legal Profession in Cardiff, and he was sure that if the students went on as they were going now, they would rank very high in the legal world.-In connection with the smoker which followed, musical selections and recitations were excellently rendered by Councillor L. Morgan, Messrs. R. J. Vincent, J. Broomhall, A. E. S. Thomas, W. P. Harding, E. E. Williams, G. Sargent, Beynon Harris, T. R. Hunt, and others.— Votes of thanks to the chairman and the secretaries concluded a very enjoyable evening.

DEWSBURY, WAKEFIELD, AND DISTRICT.—The ordinary meeting was held in the Law Library, Dewsbury, on Wednesday evening, the 13th inst., Mr. C. E. Oscar Walker in the chair. There were also present, Messrs. C. E. Peace, J. Marshall, W. H. Kingswell, H. Hodgson, S. A. K. Preston, H. J. B. Wadsworth, T. Catterall, and H. Pickles (hon. sec.). The subject for the evening was an impromptu debate. The first subject selected was : * Should clubs be placed upon the same basis as public. houses ?Mr. H. Pickles led in the affirmative, and Mr. C. E. Peace followed in the negative. On the question being put to the vote it was decided in the negative by four to one. The next subject was: “Should the jurisdiction of County Courts be extended ?” Mr. W. H. Kingswell led in the affirmative, and Mr. J. Marshall followed in the negative. On the question being put to the vote it was decided in the affirmative by five to two. The next subject was,“ That cyclists should be placed on the same footing as dogs with regard to taxation ?” This subject created a lively discussion. The following spoke : Messrs. C. E. Peace, J. Marshall, W. H. Kingswell, and H. Pickles; and on the question being put to the vote it was decided in the affirmative by a majority of two votes.

LEEDS.—The first ordinary meeting of the second half of the session was held on Monday evening in the Law Institute, Albion-place ; Mr. Benson Bailey, occupying the chair. Mr. F. G. Jackson (one of the hon. secretaries) read a letter from his Honour Judge Greenhow congratalating the society on its prosperous condition and expressing a hope that it would continue to do good work in even an enhanced degree. Mr. Jackson then tendered his resignation as secretary, as he was unable to continue the work on account of his approaching final examination. Mr. Wm. Bowling (his co-secretary) also tendered his resignation for the same reason, also stating that, as he would be leaving Leeds shortly for London, it was impossible for him to hold office. Mr. A. Hutley proposed, and Mr. A. E. Masser seconded, a formal resolution that the resignation be accepted, and this was carried with expressions of regret. A ballot then took place for new hon. secretaries, and Messrs. E. N. Whitley and A. E. Masser were elected.

Sir TRAVERS Twiss, Q.C., D.C.L., F.R.S., the distinguished jurist, died from bronchitis on Thursday, the 14th inst., at the advanced age of eighty-seven. The son of a clergyman, the Rev. Robert Twiss, of Trevallyn, Denbighshire, Twiss was born at Westminster on the 19th March 1809. At the age of seventeen he went to University College, Oxford, which had been adorned in earlier days by the brothers Scott, afterwards Lord Eldon and Lord Stowell, and in 1830 appeared in the first class in mathematics and the second class in classics. He was soon afterwards elected fellow, and appointed tutor of University, and continued to reside in college for many years. In 1835 and the two following years he was Public Examiner in Classics, and in 1838-39 and 1840 in Mathematics--the only or almost the only instance of the same man's examining in both schools. Having become a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1838, he succeeded in 1842 Hermann Merivale as Drummond Professor of Political Economy, an office which he held for the usual five years, being followed by Nassan Senior, who had been the first professor on the foundation. The fruits of his labours appeared in the volume entitled “ A View of the Progress of Political Economy in Europe since the sixteenth century," which appeared in 1847. He had already in 1846, begun the series of literary productions on questions of international law of which he subsequently became so prolific an exponent, and published an essay on the Oregon question which at one time seemed likely to embroil this country in war with the United States, but was, happily, adjusted by a delimitation of British and American territory practically by the fortyninth parallel of latitude. In 1848 he published a treatise on the relation of the Duchies of Schleswig and Holstein to the Crown of Denmark and the German Federation. Two or three years later the country was excited by the establishment of a Roman Catholic hierarchy in Great Britain, and Dr. Twiss espoused the cause, which had been taken up by Lord John Russell, in a little treatise entitled “Letters Apostolic of Pius IX. considered with reference to the law of England and the law of Europe.” Discussing the subject entirely from the legal and not from the religious standpoint, he vigorously combated Papal pretensions both at home and in the colonies. But neither law nor political economy exhausted the activity of the Oxford professor. Eagerly adopting Niebuhr's views on early Roman history, he had published in 1837 an epitome of that great historian's work, which he followed up with an edition of Livy with Latin notes In 1852 he was appointed to the Professorship of International Law at King's College, London, which he resigned after three years' tenure, to succeed Dr. Joseph Phillimore in the Regius Professorship of Civil Law at Oxford, which he held for fifteen years, and in which he was succeeded by Mr. James Bryce. Twiss became an advocate of Doctors' Commons in 1840, and was called to the Bar at Lincoln's-inn in the same year. In 1849 he was made Commissary-General of the city and diocese of Canterbury, and in 1852 was appointed Vicar-General of the Archbishop. On the promotion of Dr. Lushington to the office of Judge of the Court of Arches in 1858, Dr Twiss was made Chancellor of the Diocese of London, and in 1862 Advocate-General of the Admiralty. Meanwhile, Doctors' Commons, with the ancient ecclesiastical jurisdiction and its venerable traditions, had, by the passing of the Probate and Divorce Act 1857, become a thing of the past, and in the following year Twiss became a Queen's Counsel with a batch of eminent civilians, including Robert Phillimore, Sir J. D. Harding, Dr. Addams, and Dr. Deane. In August 1867, on the promotion of Sir R. Phillimore, Twiss became Queen's Advocate-General, an office since abolished, which had for many years been held by Sir J. D. Harding, and though extra-parliamentary, formerly held precedence over those of the Attorney and Solicitor-General. In the November of the same year Dr. Twiss obtained the honour of knighthood. Few have served on so many Royal Commissions and other public inquiries as Sir Travers Twiss. In 1852 he sat on the Commission which inquired into the regulations of the College of Maynooth ; in 1867, on that which investigated the laws of neutrality ; in 1868, on the Naturalisation and Allegiance Commission which resulted in the two statutes passed in 1870 ; and, in 1869, he served on yet another which dealt with the law of marriage in Great Britain and Ireland, and in the British Colonies; and a still further Commission of which he was a member was that on the Rubrics. He was also one of the arbitral commissioners to settle the boundary lines between the provinces of New Brunswick and Canada. The reputation of Sir Travers Twiss as a jurist was European, and in 1884, at the request of the King of the Belgians, he drew up a Constitution for the Free State of the Congo, and in the following year, at the desire of Lord Granville, then at the Foreign Office, he acted as legal adviser to the British Embassy during the West African Conference at Berlin. For many years he has devoted himself exclusively to literary work, cbiefly connected with his favourite study, international law, on which he had published lectures in 1856, and written more elaborately in a treatise published in 1861 on “The Law of Nations Considered as Independent Political Communities,” of which a second edition was issued in 1884. His principal contributions, however, to this voluminous literature are the two volumes on “ The Law of Nations in Time of Peace” and “ The Law of Nations in Time of War.” These both reached second editions-the latter in 1875 and the former in 1884. The work was translated into French by himself with the assistance of M. Alphonse Rivier, Professor of the Law of Nations at the University of Brussels. Another work which proceeded from his fluent pen was “ The Black Book of the Admiralty," published in 1874. He also contributed articles to the “ Encyclopædia Britannica,' to the Nautical Magazine, to the Law Magazine and Rerieu', and La Revue de Droit International, which he belped to establish. He was also vice-president and one of the founders, in 1872, of the Institut de Droit International, and was one of the principal promoters in the following year of the Association for the Reform and Codification of the Lawı cf

Nations. His amiability was inexhaustible, and had he been made sterner stuff he would doubtless have achieved an even greater name among the learned civilians whose college, some think unfortunately, was dissolved forty years ago. Among the distinctions not already mentioned which were conferred upon this distinguished lawyer was that of an honorary fellowship of his college, which was bestowed in 1864, a few years after his resignation of his ordinary fellowship, an honour which at that time was so rare as to be almost unique.
