The Law and the Lawyers.


We are informed that the Council of the Incorporated Law Society have determined to allow the Victoria Pension Fund, when collected, to be administered by the Solicitors' Benevolent Association, and that arrangements will be made with the association for that purpose.

The fund at present amounts to £3229.

The World makes a perfectly unjustifiable reflection upon the LORD CHANCELLOR. Forgetful of the fact that the last judge appointed was a Conservative politician, the writer says there is no hope for a Conservative or Unionist for the present vacancy—that only Radicals and his own family can expect promotion. Lord HALSBURY's gifts of minor judicial appointments have, no doubt, been dictated by sympathy and personal friendship, but no single promotion has been in any sense objectionable. Writers who aspire to guide public opinion on the subject of patronage should at least be fair.

MR. Asquith does not consider that solicitors form the lower branch of the Legal Profession. Speaking of Sir ALFRED MILNER Milner he said : “We both joined and we both aspired to practise the profession of the law. I am afraid that in those days at any rate there was a good deal more aspiration than practice. But I can recall occasions on which he and I have in a gloomy mood discussed the baffling problem which constantly presents itself to ambitious youth in this countrythe unaccountable want of discrimination of that which is ironically called the lower branch of the Legal Profession.” There is now such close intermingling of the branches that even this irony may cease.

LEGAL OBITUARY.-Mr. Walpole Eyre Parliament - Voters-Registration Greenwell


It is so wholly unusual to find any member of the House of Commons suggesting improvements in our law, that when it does occur prominence should be given to it. No one expects a lawyer to do this—such things are quite foreign to the instincts of a Parliamentary lawyer. A great suggestion has been made by Sir ELLIS ASHMEAD-BARTLETT, holding a brief, we believe, from Mr. Snow. This is what took place in the House last weck:

Sir E. ASHMEAD-BARTLETT: I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury whether, as a memorial of Her Majesty's great Jubilee, the Government will appoint a Commission to undertake the codification and simplification of the laws of England.

Mr. BALFOUR: I am afraid I cannot promise that this enormous undertaking shall be started at the present time. It is an ideal which many law reformers have endeavoured to progress for generations past, but I cannot myself undertake to contribute to its fulfilment.

Sir E. ASHMEAD-BARTLETT: Will the right hon. gentleman make an effort ?

Mr. BALFOUR : If consulting my legal friends in this or the other House can be regarded as making an effort, I shall be prepared to do that. The cost would be £100,000; which is nothing when the aim is considered. But the project is of course Utopian.

Some interest appears to attach to the presence of eight judges of first instance in the House of Lords. Anything a little unusual excites this species of interest. The mode of receiving the judges has not been uniform. The judges can be asked to give their opinion upon abstract questions arising out of the existing law, and they can be consulted upon any case sub judice in the House of Lords. Up to the end of the reign of Queen ELIZABETH they were in the
