UNITED LAW CLERKS' SOCIETY.— The sixty-seventh anniversary festival of this very excellent society takes place next month, and I venture to solicit your aid in endeavouring to swell the number of its annual subscribers, and also to give a gentle hint to the wealthy members of the Legal Profession to remember the society when settling their testamentary dispositions. It has been estimated that there are some 25,000 barristers and solicitors in the Law List. Of these only about 300 are annual subscribers. Surely a little gentle pressure is only needed to bring up the total to 500 (one in fifty). In the matter of legacies the society has been singularly unfortunate-twenty-six legacies in sixty-six years. Of these the two largest one for £1800, and another for £1000— were obtained by members. The annual festivals of the society have been presided over by the greatest lawyers, among whom may be mentioned Lord Cranworth, Lord Chelmsford, Lord Justice Knight Bruce, Lord Hatherley, Lord Selborne, Lord Bramwell, Earl Cairns, Sir Geo. Jessel, Master of the Rolls, Lord Coleridge, Lord Herschell, and the present Lord Chancellor (Lord Halsbury). From the very eloquent speeches made by the Chairman at the Festivals the following extracts will I trust be read and bear fruit. 1889. Lord Herschell: “The society has existed for fiftyseven years and only received eighteen legacies.
I think there ought to be and might be many more.
This is a society which might well be remembered upon such an occasion as the making of a will by those who occupy themselves not only by making their own wills but the wills of other people.
1893. The Rt. Hon. Sir Francis Jeune: “As judge of the Probate Division I feel it right to urge upon you specially the duty of testamentary bequest. easy
the secretary will supply you with a form you will never be sorry in recollecting such an institution.” 1894. Lord Davey : “I cannot help thinking that sometimes when benevolent testators are minded to give part of their substance in charity, but have not quite made up their minds, and do not quite know what society they could most usefully give a legacy to, that & word in season might be beneficial to the U.L.C.S.
I shall be glad to hear on another occasion that the hint I have ventured to throw out has taken root in a substantial way.” 1895. Lord Russell of Killowen (Lord Chief Justice of England): “Barristers are not willmakers, but solicitors are, and if there has been a shortcoming in the shape of legacies to this society, to the door of the solicitor let it be laid. I see some gentlemen in front of me-Mr. Rowcliffe, Mr. Walters, and my friend Sir George Lewis-who, when testators come to them with their thousands and tens of thousands of Consols and other securities, at a loss to know what to do with them
let me venture to offer the suggestion that an odd thousand or two to struggling law clerks will be administered wisely and carefully by the U.L.C.S., and thus enable them to carry out more widely and more effectively still the great object to which it is devoted.” 1896. The Right Hon. the Speaker (Mr. Gully, Q.C.): “ There are members of the Profession who die well enough off apparently to leave very substantial legacies to one charitable association or another. I venture to urge on lawyers, when making their wills, not to forget the claims of this institution.
When a lawyer is going to leave £500 to a charity, why should he not remember those who have helped to build him up a fortune, and bear in mind this society ? It should never be forgotten that the members of the U.L.C.S. are a body of thrifty men seeking to provide for sickness and old age, and also, in the shape of a casual fund," to assist deserving law clerks (non-members) over temporary difficulties. The subscriptions of barristers and solicitors enable the committee of management to extend this laudable work.
AN OLD MEMBER OF THE U.L.C.S.
Mr. CHARLES WILLIAM MOORE, solicitor, of Tewkesbury, died at his residence, Avonside, on Thursday, the 15th inst., in his eighty.second year. He was admitted in the year 1838, and was one of the oldest solicitors on the roll. He commenced practice as partner of Mr. Anthony Sproule, and on that gentleman's death took into partnership Mr. L. W. Lewis, now of Walsall. Mr. Frederick Moore joined the firm in 1859, and on the retirement of Mr. Lewis the late Mr. Churchill Romney joined the firm under the title of Moores and Romney. Mr. Romney died in 1879, and the business has been continued since then by the two brothers. Mr. C. W. Moore was town clerk from 1856 to 1866, borough coroner from 1856 to the time of his death, clerk to the county magistrates and commissioners of taxes, and joint clerk with Mr. F. Moore to Burial Board and the late Turnpike Trusts. Mr. Moore took a leading part in all matters where the interests of his native town were concerned. He was buried in the Tewkesbury Cemetery on Tuesday last, and his funeral was attended by the mayor and corporation and borough officials, and a large number of the principal inhabitants, and the town presented general appearance of mourning.
Mr. W. W. ALDRIDGE, whose death took place on the 9th inst., at his residence, 58, Canfield-gardens, West Hampstead, in his eightieth year, was for many years a very familiar figure in legal circles. Admitted a solicitor as far back as 1844, he was still practising at the time of his death, so that his professional experience extended over a period of more than half a century. He was the senior partner of the firm of Aldridge, Thorn, and Bromley, of 31, Bedford-row, but at the time of his death the business was being carried on under the name of Aldridge, Thorn, and Sherrington. It was probably, however, in his capacity as official solicitor to the London Court of Bankruptcy that he was more generally known to the public. To this post he was appointed by Lord Westbury soon after the passing of the Bankruptcy Act 1861, and he continued to hold it till the Act of 1883 came into operation, when he was appointed legal adviser to the Official Receiver under that Act. About five or six years ago Mr. Aldridge severed his connection with the Bankruptcy department, and retired on a pension after some thirty years of service.
SOLICITORS LOOK OUT FOR YOUR Costs.-Will you kindly insert this in this week's issue of your valuable paper, as I consider it is of very great importance to solicitors. “Smith sold a house to Jones, and Jones persuaded, no doubt, Smith to accompany him (Jones) to Robinson's office (Robinson being a solicitor who had acted at times for Jones) for Robinson to do the legal work required to carry out the sale. Smith and Jones therefore went together to Robinson and told him what they wanted, and of course Robinson then asked, where are the title deeds ? and Smith said, 'Jones has them, as he has advanced me money on this house'; but, on further discussion, Robinson discovered that Smith had become possessed of the property ander a will. He, therefore, asked for the probate of the said will, whereupon Smith gave him (Robinson) the address of the person who had it and instructed him to write and get it, which he (Robinson) did, and it came in due course, and the matter of the transfer was completed very shortly afterwards. On no occasion was the question of costs mentioned to Robinson in this matter. In due course Robinson sent in his bill of costs in the matter to each (Smith and Jones) separately for an amount in each case under the proper scale as acting for both vendor and purchaser, and the judge admitted the costs were moderate. Jones paid his bill of costs, but Smith, who had left the town, took no notice and did not pay hers, whereupon, after some months had elapsed, Robinson thought it was time she should have paid, and placed the matter into a County Court (not 100 miles from London), and at the hearing Smith swore she had not instructed Robinson, and two witnesses for the latter swore she did. The judge gave a verdict for defendant, on the ground that there had been 'no retainer,' and thus poor Robinson has the pleasure of thinking he did Smith's work for nothing, and also of paying the costs for attempting to recover his own costs (as may be imagined several guineas).
NAPIER AND STEPHENSON'S PRACTICAL GUIDE TO THE BAR.—The Guide commences with a Chapter on the Prospects at the Bar, and the advantages of being called, and contains a Sketch of the ordinary legal career of a Bar Student. Special practical advice is given on such matters as reading in Chambers, and also on all the different matters connected with the Examinations; advice as to the best books to be read, &c. The book also contains full particulars as to the Fees, &c., payable at the different Inns, and a few considerations as to the selection of an Inn, &c. Price 28. 6d.-HORACF Cox, “ Law Times” Office, Windsor House, Bream's-buildings, E.C.-[Apvt.]
So far as I know, and I have never heard to the contrary, it is not the custom in our profession to make any arrangement as to costs; at least, if it done at all, it is more the exception than the rule in matters such as these, and with respectable people (and, moreover, there was a lot of trouble in the matter through Smith claiming certain things in the house). If a solicitor mentioned such a thing as this, 'who is going to pay to respectable clients,' how may clients would he soon have ? He would, I guess, be soon growing tomatoes, grapes, and cucumbers, his office acting as the place to grow them in, and his clerks being the gardeners.” I should be glad to hear on this urgent point through the medium of your valuable paper. Of course, this matter cannot end so, as solicitors cannot work for nothing, no more than County Court judges. I do my utmost to uphold my profession, and, therefore, feel very strongly about this. I asked a client shortly afterwards in my office to sign a paper that he had instructed me in a matter he was then asking me to attend to for him, I having informed him of the judge's ruling, and he answered, “ If you cannot trust me without that, I am off to someone else who will.” I, of course, did not urge for my “retainer,” as he was a respectable man. I shall, indeed, be sorry if this case goes forth as a precedent.
AN AGGRIEVED SOLICITOR,
BUILDING AGREEMENTS LEASES
IN PURCHASER'S NAME.—Many of your readers will doubtlessly willingly join in a protest against the practice of landlords' solicitors making out building leases in the names of builders' nominees being purchasers of their houses, which practice has of late been unfortunately largely on the increase. As the direction and authority to the landlord is made on the agreement for lease, and does not come before the authorities and does not disclose any contract or consideration, besides defrauding the Government out of the stamp duties on the otherwise necessary assignment, it necessarily creates hardship on other practising solicitors. It would be of great interest to many to ascertain the experiences and views of some of your readers with regard to this matter, whether the subject has been or should be taken up by the local law society or the London society, and as to what steps, if any, have been taken to put a stop to the practice. Every landlords' solicitor has the right to refuse, and I suggest that it is a duty he owes to his own profession and to the State to refuse, to grant any lease to any builders' nominee unless the contract, properly stamped as an assignment, is produced to him.
to the pro
same address under the old firm style. The goods are delivered to him at the place of business in due course. In Jan. 1897 B. becomes bankrupt, the goods so delivered to him not being paid for. Can C. succeed in an action for the price of the goods against the executors of A. ?” Mr. J. Procter argued for the affirmative, and contended that under the Partnership Act 1890, sect. 9, the estate of a deceased partner is also severally liable in a due course of administration for all debts and obligations so far as they remain unsatisfied at the time of his death. Then the question arose, “ Was this an obligation at the time of A.'s death ? " Mr. Procter contended that this was so, and quoted Sale of Goods Act 1893, sect. 1, subsect. 3, to show that this was an executory contract or agreement to sell, and that as soon as the goods were delivered in December there was a sale. He quoted sect. 4, sub-sects. 1 and 2, of the above mentioned Sale of Goods Act. The other cases were McClean v. Kennard (L. Rep. 9 Ch. App. 336); Re Hodgson (54 L. T. Rep. 222; 31 Ch. Div. 177). Mr. Baldwin argued for the negative and contended that, as there was no acceptance of the goods during the lifetime of A., his estate could not be made liable. He submitted that as a question of law the creditor could not bring an action, whatever he might do in equity. Mr. Baldwin cited in support of his arguments Kendall v. Hamilton (39 L. T. Rep. 250; 4 App. Cas.); Lindley on Partnership and several other cases, and distinguished McClean v. Kennard (above). Messrs. S. Davies, E. F. P. Emmett, J. C. Pollard, H. Ogden, A. Shaw, and W. F. Satcliffe supported the affirmative ; whilst Mr. Roberts spoke for the negative. Mr. Procter then replied, after which Dr. Jackson very ably summed up the arguments of the speakers. The question was decided by a majority of four in the affirmative. On the motion of Mr. Baldwin seconded by Mr. Procter, a vote of thanks was accorded Dr. Jackson for presiding.
MANCHESTER.–At the concluding meeting of the session, held at the Law Library, Mr. G. W. Fox. president of the Manchester Incorporated Law Association, in the chair, the following was the subject for debate : “An attendant at a theatre, after the audience had dispersed, finds on the floor of the stalls a veluable diamond bracelet. He hands prietor, at the same time giving the proprietor notice that if it is not claimed by the true owner he intends to claim it himself. Can he, after the lapse of a reasonable interval—the proprietor of the theatre having refused to hand the bracelet to him-sue for its return ? "-Mr. G. Livsey opened on behalf of the affirmative. He said it was agreed on all hands that the finder of a chattel was entitled to it if the true owner could not be found (Armory v. Delamirie). But this case only went to the extent of giving the property to the finder when the finding took place on a highway or in a public place. He contended that a theatre was a public place sufficiently for the purpose of giving a good title to the finder of a chattel therein. The public were there on licence, and if the licence was not revoked the theatre became and remained a public place, and therefore the finder in the case under discussion had a good title against all the world except the true owner. Mr. A. Richardson opened on behalf of the negative. He argued that a theatre was both of a public and a private nature, according to whether the performance had terminated or not. After the performance was over and the audience had dispersed (this being the time of the finding of the bracelet) he considered that it became a private place pure and simple. He submitted that the duties which were incident to the contract of employment, and which fell within the scope of his employment, disentitled the attendant to retain the bracelet, and that anything found by a servant on the master's private premises belonged to the master. Moreover, the theatre proprietor was under a duty created by an implied contract of bailment to deliver up the bracelet to the owner if ever requested to do so. In the discussion the following took part: Messrs. F. Preston, F, Hindle, Z. M. Lord, and A. H. Tallent-Bateman, for the affirmative, and H. D. Judson, G. Buckley, C. R. Allen, jun., F. W. Lowndes, F. W. Watson, P. Hibbert, W. Booth, E. B. Beesley, F. S. Oppenheim, B.A., A. Syer, L. Wise, J. Swindells, F. Hartley, W. Taylor, R. M. H. Humphrey, F. H. Williamson, and W. Patterson, for the negative. The Chairman summed up the debate. He said that, whilst he considered that on fine legal grounds the affirmative might be the correct view, still on broad principles he felt that the negative was the more desirable view to take. On a vote being taken there was a large majority for the negative.
JUBILEE.- Is not this sexagesimal commemoration a unique opportunity for making the Queen's formal title the same throughout her dominions, and for causing that title to recognise every part of those dominions ? · Victoria, by the Grace of God, of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland and the Colonies and Dependencies thereof in Europe, Asia, Africa, America, Australasia, and the Isles, Queen and Empress." Her Majesty, not only for India, but always, signs “R. and I.," and, even that were not so, the double title is appropriate. The formal title is only used in formal documents, and is mostly printed, so that the length is quite unimportant. “ Defender of the Faith” could, of course, be added, but, considering the origin of that addition and its uselessness and even practical untruthfulness, very few would be sorry to lose it. “By the Grace of God” should be kept, and no doubt will be.

STUDENTS' SOCIETIES. LAW STUDENTS' DEBATING SOCIETY.—The usual weekly meeting of the above society was held at the Law Institotion, Chancery-lane, on Tuesday, the 13th inst. ; chairman, Mr. J. S. Wilkinson. The subject for debate was : “That the present Government does not deserve the confidence of the country.” Mr. E. A. Bell opened in the affirmative, and Mr. G. H. Head in the negative. The following members also spoke : Messrs. W. A. Jolly, G. H. Daniell, Archer White, A. W. Watson, A. C. F. Boulton, H. Lacy Addison.-The subject for debate at the next meeting of the society on Tuesday, the 27th inst., is : “ That the case of Chastey v. Ackland (72 L. T. Rep. 845; (1895) 2 Ch. 389) was wrongly decided."
BIRMINGHAM.-A meeting of this society was held on the 13th inst., in the Law Library, Bennett's Hill; Mr. W. H. King in the chair. A debate took place on moot point No. 862: “Mr. X. takes an unfurnished house upon a weekly tenancy. He engages two men to move some furniture into the house. While these men are carrying rather a heavy wardrobe upstairs, the staircase, which has been defectively built, gives way, and A., one of the men, is seriously injured. Has A. a good right of action against anyone for the injury thus caused to him ?” The speakers for the affirmative were Messrs. G. E. T. Edalji, F. Cooper, A. F. Lovatt, and F. W. Green; for the negative, Messrs. H. Eaden, S. J. Gateley, F.O. Hopson, s. Vernon, and F. H. Whitehouse. The Chairman having summed up, the question was put to the meeting, and decided in the affirmative by a majority of two votes.
