Ar Derby last week the LORD CHANCELLOR applied the cold douche to the enthusiasts who favour a large extension of County Court jurisdiction. We do not, however, take back a single point which we have conceded; because we made extension of jurisdiction dependent upon increased efficiency of the courts themselves. The LORD CHANCELLOR puts most forcibly the arguments in favour of keeping things as they are. He sees that the increasing business—not in his view a subject of congratulation-is as much as the judges can manage.

He did not call them “inferior” judges—but “other” judges : the old consummate tact. They do not work in the glare of publicity ; they are not salted with constant criticism. Any step forward must be taken only after grave deliberation and consideration. It is difficult to answer this until some of the reforms of County Court procedure which our correspondents suggest are carried. We candidly acknowledge the initial difficulty attending the proposed extension. It is in the power of no functionary to be a greater tyrant than a County Court judge deciding cases which are not appealable. To keep the human mind impartial on the judgment-seat, the controlling influences of an intelligent and fearless Bar are essential. Publicity and concurrent criticism are the salt without which a judge loses his savour.

To withdraw important suits from the High Court where all these safeguards exist, to transfer them to tribunals where such safeguards are all absent, is the difficulty. NEVERTHELESS, it is necessary to repeat what we have frequently said, that any alternative almost is to be preferred to the continuance of a High Court, defective in constitution, incumbered with a complex and faulty procedure, which does not do the common law work of the country satisfactorily either in London or the provinces, and in which, as a result, the business shows a steady and unvarying decline.

In the preface to the twenty-eighth volume of the Revised Reports—which carries us into the Old Series of the Law Journal Reports, i.e., 1829—Sir FREDERICK POLLOCK writes : Rex v. Benchers of Lincoln's-inn is one of the few reported cases that establish and illustrate the singular position of the Inns of Court before the law as voluntary societies having much more than the powers of regular corporations and none of the responsibility."

ought to be expressly provided that the prisoner is not to be asked whether or not he has been previously convicted ; and, thirdly, the wife or husband of the prisoner ought only to be a competent, and in no case a compellable, witness.

AFTER great and careful consideration the Bar Council has formulated a Rule of the Profession with respect to retainers. By virtue of the retainer rules already in existence counsel who has drawn pleadings or advised or accepted a brief during the progress of an action on behalf of any party is entitled to a brief at the trial. The Council now lay it down that, when a brief is offered or delivered to any counsel, and he finds that another counsel has become entitled to a brief and has not been briefed, such first-named counsel ought, where practicable, to ascertain from the solicitor offering or delivering such brief whether there is any sufficient explanation why a brief has not been offered or delivered to such other counsel, and unless a satisfactory explanation is given ought to refuse or return the brief. What is to be considered a sufficient explanation is the difficulty. For our part it is inconceivable that

any

counsel should insist upon any rule resulting in a client briefing him when he wants, for any conceivable reason, to be represented by some other counsel.

Is it the business of no one to utter

The new judge's name?
Has he but painfully earned bread and butter

Quite unknown to fame?
Is he a politician without practice,

Or dull chap in stuff ?
Whichever 'tis who'll tell us what the fact is ?

Brilliant he or muff?
His name won't smell the better for the keeping;

Then out with it quick; Tho' thereby you set half the Temple weeping

And the rest make sick.

WE fear money-lenders cause County Court judges much trouble, and occasionally make them expound bad law. Here is a verbatim account of proceedings in the Shoreditch County Court :

Defendant was one of two sureties for a sum of money lent a Mrs. Rose, and judgment had already been given against the debtor, but had been signed in default against the other defendant.

Judge French : That will not do. He cannot go on indefinitely and obtain judgment against all the world.

The Chief Clerk stated that this had been the invariable practice.

Judge French : Then it is wrong. The House of Lords has decided that when a plaintiff signs judgment against one person he cannot sue another for the same debt. This summons must be dismissed.

Plaintiff : What am I to do?

Judge French : Consult a solicitor. I am not here to give money-lenders advice. Judgment for the defendant with costs.

Plaintiff : Is that law?
Judge French : It is. I am giving you the law,
Plaintiff : Then I wish you would give me justice.

Judge French : I wish I could give all the members of your fraternity justice. I fear it would not be pleasant for you. Conceivably this might be justice. Is it law ? Certainly not. If a creditor having a cause of action against either of two persons, ex. gr., an agent and his undisclosed principal, elects to sue one and proceeds to judgment, he cannot then sue the other. But if a creditor has a debtor and a surety, and the debtor make3 default whereby the surety becomes liable, he may sue both, recover judgment against both, and, failing to recover the debt from the debtor, may proceed with his remedies against the surety. So far as we are aware, the House of Lords has not yet sanctioned the doctrine that in a contract of suretyship you cannot get judgment and execution against all parties to the contract.

THE JUDICIAL TRUSTEE RULES. The Judicial Trustees Act 1896 enables the High Court, on application either by a trustee or beneficiary, to appoint a judicial trustee of any trust, including that of the administration of the estate of a deceased person, whether a testator or intestate, “either jointly with any other person or as sole trustee," and, in some cases, in the place of any existing trustee. Such a trustee may be allowed remuneration by the court, and his accounts are to be subject to audit. He may be an official of the Supreme Court, a Palatine Court, or a County Court, and if he is not must give security. Rules may be made by the Lord Chancellor for carrying the Act into effect. Such are the provisions of the six sections of the Act.

Let us now see what are the provisions of the more important of the thirty-six draft rules (wliich we printed at length last week), which have been published under the Rules Publication Act 1893 for consideration and criticism by “any public body interested,” and which are expressed as intended to come into operation on the commencement of the Act, i.e., on the 1st May next.

APPLICATION.—The application to appoint a judicial trustee is to be made by originating summons, and the court is to be supplied by the applicant with comprehensive particulars of the subject-matter of the application, giving, amongst other things, the name of the person nominated (if any) and short particulars of the reasons which lead to his nomination, with a statement whether it is proposed that be shonld be remunerated or not, and the names and addresses of the beneficiaries, and short particulars of their respective interest. It is manifest that great care will be required in drawing up these particulars, and it is to be feared that not a few trustees will find very great difficulty, even with the most assiduous assistance of their professional advisers, in producing a clear and accurate statement for the use of the court.

APPOINTMENT.-The judicial trustee may be either the person nominated, if any, or the official solicitor of the court. Many restrictive rules of practice as to appointment of trustees may be broken down. Thus it is expressly provided that the solicitor to the trust may be appointed, that a beneficiary may be appointed, and that a relative may be appointed, notwithstanding Lord Romilly's dictum that the worst breaches of trust were invariably those committed by relatives. It is provided also that an existing trustee may be appointed, so that all trastees whatever may, if they be so minded, bring themselves, as "judicial trustees," under the operation of the Act and rules, i.e., they may take the benefits and burdens of remuneration, recognisance, and audit. The appointment of a beneficiary may settle many qnarrels between trustees and beneficiaries, but we have some doubt whether a beneficiary ought in any case to be a sole trustee. Rule 5, which makes all these liberal provisions, also allows the appointment of a married woman-an enfranchisement which we should have thought to be already sufficiently provided for by the 18th section of the Married Women's Property Act 1882. On the other hand, the practice of appointing single women is by no means so fully established as not to require recognition by the new rule, and we would suggest that rule 5 should expressly authorise the appointment of women whether married or not, and should require that, if a married woman should be “ nominated " in the application, the applicant should state whether the husband of the nominee consented to the appointment or not.

REMUNERATION.—The remuneration is to be as fixed by the court, and special allowances may also be made ; e.g., ten guineas or less for statement of trust property on appointment, and "for realising and investing trust property, where the property is realised for the purpose of re-investment, an allowance not exceeding 1} per cent. on the amount realised and re-invested.” There may also in any year be a special allowance "for more trouble being thrown upon the trustee by reason of exceptional circumstances than would ordinarily be involved in the administration of the trust.” There appears to be no doubt that the salary is intended to come out of income, and the special allowances out of capital; but we think it should be expressly stated that the allowances are to be paid out of capital.

SECURITY.-It is to be prima facie essential that the judicial trustee, if not an official of a court, should give security, but the court is to be allowed to dispense with it on the application of any person interested (this appears to us to be a little too liberal), and the security

THE Criminal Evidence Bill has been read a second time in the House of Commons by a large majority-not, however, without the assistance of the closure, and many effective criticisms on its altered provisions. Inasmuch as the inclusion of Ireland, which bitherto (as was very clearly shown on the only other occasion—in 1888—when the Bill has been fully debated before in the House of Commons) was the chief obstacle to the Bill, is now to be given up, there is a reasonable prospect that the Bill will become law in the present session. So great is the weight of authority in favour of admitting the evidence of prisoners, so large and many are the parts of Anglo-Saxondom in which such evidence has long been admitted, so continuous and persistent have been the endeavours of successive law officers for the last twenty years, that the opponents of the Bill (who are more numerous than has been generally supposed) will have a hard uphill game to fight. Their wisest course, however, would be to confine themselves to amendments in committee, and there are three points on which amendment appears to be required. First, the evidence of the prisoner ought, as was provided by the Criminal Code Bill of 1878, to be unsworn ; secondly, it
