HULL INCORPORATED LAW SOCIETY. The annual dinner of the Hull Incorporated Law Society was held at the Station Hotel, on the 24th ult., the president, Mr. J. Travis-Cook, in the chair. Others present were the Mayor, Mr. J. T. Atkinson (president Yorkshire Law Society), Mr. V. Demoulin (president Hull Chamber of Commerce), Mr. T. Farrell, Mr. Birks, Dr. H. Woodhouse, Dr. T. C. Jackson, Mr. A. M. Jackson, Mr. Hearfield, Mr. Johnson, Mr. T. W. Holdich, Mr. Underwood, Mr. R. Alan Park, Mr. Gardham, Mr. A. Thorney, Mr. A. Manley, Mr. A. Laverack, Mr. Forward, Mr. Maw, Mr. Redfearn, Mr. T. Thompson, Mr. T. Hart, Mr. Pearce (vice-president), Mr. Colbeck, Mr. Twell, Mr. Mayfield, Mr. Stuart, Mr. F. W. Spink, Mr. E. P. Dixon, Mr. R. H. Winter, Mr. Salmon, Mr. T. L. Locking (hon. secretary), Mr. W. C. Townsend, Mr. Morgan, and Mr. Worthington. Letters of apology were read from the sheriff, Sir H. Seymour King, M.P., Mr. C. H. Wilson, M.P., Mr. J. T. Firbank, M.P., the Recorder, his Honour Judge Bedwell, Mr. E. C. Twiss, the President of the Incorporated Law Society ef the United Kingdom, the presidents of the Leeds, Bradford, Sheffield, Wakefield, and Huddersfield societies, and Mr. Thornton-Varley, president of the Chamber of Trades. The loyal toasts having been honoured on the initiative of the Chairman,
Mr. Birks submitted “The Incorporated Law Society (U.K.) and Provincial Law Societies.” He observed that as an ex-president of the Hull Society and an extraordinary member of the parent society, he knew something about the work the London Society did, and he could safely say that the amount of work which prominent London members of the society did was surprising, and commanded their esteem and approbation. The Yorkshire Law Society was one of the leading provincial societies, and one of the oldest, having been founded about 110 years ago. It was a rich society, and he knew from his own personal experience it had an extremely good law library. It was an energetic society, and he was very pleased they had the presence there of the president that night.
Mr. Atkinson, in responding, said that he was astonished at the amount of good work the London Incorporated Society did. The Yorkshire Law Society was second to none, and they were determined to strive to do their level best in everything that concerned them. Last year was one of happiness, and, to a certain extent, of prosperity to them, and he was happy to think there was a possibility of that highly satisfactory state of things continuing. He would like to suggest that the different societies of the country should draw nearer together. He had a little scheme of his own which was, that the different law societies should meet from time to time in different places to discuss professional subjects. The question of the conditions of sale was one which might well be considered, as it was of great importance. They knew how each society had its own conditions, and surely it would not be very difficult to frame conditions applicable to the whole of Yorkshire. Another suggestion he would like to make was that they should adopt some scheme to celebrate the Queen's Diamond Jubilee.
Mr. J. T. Atkinson gave “ The Hull Incorporated Law Society." He congratulated the president upon his re-election, and the treasurer upon having a substantial balance in the bank. The secretary, Mr. Locking, had held that post for six years, and that proved what confidence they had in him.
The President, in responding, expressed his thanks to the members for having elected him to that position for the second year, and went on to say that the society had three objects which it sought to attain. In the first place, their object was to conserve the interests of the Legal Profession, for what affected their interests also affected the interests of the public at large. Another object was to secure a higher standard of practice amongst themselves, and the third was to promote a kindly feeling amongst themselves. They must never forget that the real work of the society was done by the secretary. He had met Mr. Locking on many occasions, and he had always found him a courteous and upright practitioner, and an honourable man in business. As the secretary of that society, he did a great deal of quiet, unassuming work, and they were greatly indebted to him for his exertions on their behalf.
Mr. Locking also responded, expressing the great pleasure it gave him to serve the society.
Dr. Woodhouse gave “The Health of Mr. Registrar Farrell,” which that gentleman acknowledged.
An excellent programme of songs by well-known advocates added greatly to the night's enjoyment.

COUNTY COURTS.-As a reader of the Law TIMES for many years past, I must ask you to allow me to enter my protest against the remarks you make in the LAW TIMES of the 6th inst. with reference to County Courts. It is, I know, a matter of surprise to many that you should be continually carping at County Courts and their work. When you say that those who know most intimately the work of these courts are not at all satisfied that it is satisfactorily done, that cases confessedly have to be disposed of in a rough-and-ready fashion, that the law is frequently not discussed or is misapplied, that there is not time to thrash cases out, and that advocacy in these courts is hasty and irregular, you make general charges which cannot be sustained, and which I am certain do not reflect the views of a large majority of provincial solicitors. Some of your statements may perhaps apply, if they have any foundation at all, to the Metropolitan County Courts to which your experience is probably confined, but they certainly do not apply to County Courts in the large towns in the provinces. As one who has had in this and neighbouring districts very considerable experience of County Court work in the various branches of its jurisdiction, I have no hesitation in saying that the contested cases in these courts are thrashed out more thoroughly and satisfactorily, both as to the facts and the law, than cases at the assizes, and that there is no legal reform more pressing than an extension of their jurisdiction. I know that London solicitors have never taken kindly to County Courts, and care very little for them (otherwise the President of the Incorporate Law Society would not have affixed his name to the new rules), lut the great body of the provincial solicitors thoroughly appreciate their value, and hope to see their jurisdiction largely extended. On this question I feel sure that the Law Times does not represent the views of a very large and increasing body of the Profession. Hull.
E. LAVERACK. [Our opinion is formed upon evidence furnished by judges, barristers, and solicitors. There are, of course, exceptional districts, but our correspondent would be astonished at the number of courts as to which we have had information admitting of no difference of opinion. We shall be very pleased if the view so generally entertained can be displaced.—ED.]

Queries. 27. INTESTATE AND NO NEXT OF KIN.-Would any of your reades 8 kindly refer me to any instances where the Crown, having claimed half a husband's personalty, by reason of his having died intestate leaving a widow but no next of kin, it has, after making every inquiry for next of kin (without result) and waiting a reasonable time, released the fund in its hands to the widow or to her poor relations upon their petition? I am told that there have been many such cases. 9, Fenchurch-street, E.C.
SIDNEY NEWMAN, Solicitor. 28. CHARITABLE USES.-(a) Trustees for a religious body purchased for a valuable considerazion a house and land (less than two acres) for the purpose of a chapel-keeper's house, the tenancy of which is granted to him as part of his salary as chapel-keeper. Is the conveyance to the trustees exempt from enrolment by virtue of sect. 7 (ii.) of the Act of 1888 ? (b) Property is conveyed to trustees for charitable purposes expressly upon trusts which are declared in a deed relating to other property which has been duly enrolled. Does sect. 4 (9) of the Act of 1888 exempt the latter conveyance from enrolment notwithstanding that the instrument in which the charitable uses are declared was enrolled many years prior to the making of the assurance of the land now conveyed ? The sub-section referred to states that the instrument containing the trusts must be enrolled within six months after the making of the assurance of the land. This, it is apprehended, means not later than six months after the making of the assurance of the land, so that when enrolled before the assurance of the land the spirit of the section is complied with.
DELAY IN COMPLETION.-As lawyers often get the blame of delay in completing conveyancing business, we think it right to mention the following instance, which shows that they do not always deserve it. A purchase was to be settled on the 24th Dec. 1896. On the 12th of that month the deed was ready, and it was executed by one party between that day and the 17th. On the latter date it was sent to the solicitor acting for the vendor and his bankers, who were mortgagees, for execution by them. The solicitor obtained the vendor's execution, and ascertained from the local manager of the bankers that they would seal the deed on either the 22nd, 23rd, or 24th Dec., which would have been in time for the settlement fixed. The next thing the vendor's solicitor heard was that the bankers would not seal the deed until the 27th Jan. 1897, and the whole business had to await their pleasure until after that date instead of being settled punctually, as would otherwise have been the
The purchaser under the contract had to pay interest to the vendor for the month's delay, and we could not advise him to resist this, as the vendor and the solicitor acting for him and for the bankers had done everything that reasonably lay in their power to get the business settled punctually, and the delay was caused entirely by the default of the bankers, who refuse to indemnify the purchaser from the loss of interest brought about by them. We should add that there was a short further delay after the 27th Jan., owing to a later complication which had arisen, but this would not in any way have prevented the completion on the 24th Dec. had the conveyance been sealed on or before that day according to the appointment originally made by the bank manager.
SPARKES, POPE, AND THOMAS.
Answers. (Q. 22.) MARRIED WOMEN MORTGAGEES OF FREEHOLDS.—“Triadis' appears to have overlooked the following words in the judgment delivered in Re Harkness and Allsopp’s Contract (74 L. T. Rep. 652), “The object of it (Married Women's Property Act) was to prevent the property of ladies being under the control of their husbands, as it had been before.” The money invested in the mortgage being the property of the married woman causes a distinction between the married woman as a trustee and as a mortgagee. In the former, she would have no beneficial interest whatever. If “ Triadis's " contention is correct, then a married woman cannot deal with her property (i.e., receive her principal and interest) without the concurrence of her husband, which was the mischief intended to be remedied by the Married Women's Property Act 1882.
QUEEN'S DIAMOND JUBILEE. — Why should we not celebrate the Diamond Jubilee in the manner in which, if I remember rightly, it was proposed to celebrate the Jubilee itself-namely, by the establishment of a first-class school for the sons of members of the Legal Profession, similar to that already established for the sons of members of the medical profession ? This would enable those of us who are not troubled with heavy purses to confer apon our children a high-class education, and thus provide them with the best equipment for fighting the battle of life.
