commissioners, which has the effect of a charge upon the land liable as to the tax for the amount of the sum paid. On registration of this certificate under the Land Charges Registration and Searches Act 1888, this charge has priority over all other charges and incumbrances. The Act does not in any way limit the period during which such charge will continue valid and effectual, nor provide as to how the charge is to be got rid of. In consequence of this, it is a matter of some importance to ascertain the position of a purchaser of the land buying with or without notice of the charge. Can the vendor claim from the purchaser the full amount of the charge at any time? Because, if so, and if some considerable period has elapsed since payment of the capital sum, it would seem to be inequitable to the purchaser, as the vendor has, since the payment, been relieved from the tax, and surely the purchaser should have the benefit of the lapse of time; else, in place of the tax which has been nominally redeemed, the land would be liable to a constant burden in the shape of a perpetual charge. Then again, if the vendor has elected to pay by instalments, when is the certificate to be granted, and what is the position of the purchaser as regards future payments of the instalments ? Upon these, and upon such questions as to whether a purchaser buying without notice would be liable, also whether he would be bound to make inquiry and

to search at the Land Charges Registry, the correspondents to the Law TIMES could possibly enlighten me. I think the subject merits discussion and explanation.

PROBATES OF Wills.—I have read your remarks in the Law TIMES, of the 14th inst., upon the surprise felt by Mr. Justice Kekewich that solicitors did not engross probate book wise. It would have been fairer if the learned judge had first made some inquiries of the Probate Court registrars and one or two experienced solicitors as to the reasons for the present practice. If the mere facility of reading a probate were the only thing to be thought of, the book wise engrossment would doubtless be the better, and solicitors would have adopted this mode years ago, as they have done in the case of some description of deeds.

But there are insuperable practical objections to the bookwise system for probates. By the present method the seal of the Probate Court is folded within the probate, and is by this means preserved. If the probate were bookwise, the seal, if attached, would hang about and be liable to be broken or defaced, unless the ancient tin box were used, which Mr. Justice Kekewich might complain of as cumbersome. If the seal were impressed instead of attached, each page would have to be sealed for the purpose of authentification and to prevent fraud, and on the pages of a “book” the seals would occupy considerable space. A probate very often consists of two or more skins, and the present system is most desirable, as all the skins are so fastened together by the parchment to which the seal is attached that it is necessary to violently destroy the whole arrangement before any addition or abstraction can take place. The mere tying up or binding of a number of small pages together, as deeds engrossed bookwise are now fastened up, would be insufficient to prevent fraud. In may be said that, in case of tampering, the argued will could be produced in a Guit in the Probate Court. But this would involve trouble, delay, and expense. When a testator dies possessed of consols, stocks, or shares, the probate has to be registered with the Bank of England and divers companies, and a stamp of registration by each is impressed by indorsemnent. We have large probates literally covered with such stamps, and a lot of room is wanted in some cases. It may be suggested that an additional back sheet may be added afterwards for this purpose. But this would destroy the completeness and authenticity of the document as admitted to probate ; and it is clear the registrar would not stamp a blank sheet beforehand. If I represented a bank or a company, I would decline to impress a stamp of registration upon a page which might be removed at any time and by anybody or become accidentally detached. Many executors find it convenient to place small papers of value relating to the estate inside the probate for safety; but I do not use this as a strong argument. We never find the size and shape of a probate bother us ; we only use the probate when required to be produced officially.

We use a most carefully examined copy on single sides of foolscap paper, called the * working " copy, and we believe most solicitors do the same. I believe these views will be indorsed by most solicitors of experience, and that the present system will be continued. Indeed, I doubt if the Probate Court registrars would sanction the bookwise idea.

Thos. COUSINS. Referring to your observatiens in the Law TIMES of the 14th inst. (p. 26) as to engrossing probates bookwise, I would call your attention to the fact that the bookwise practice has been in force in the Liverpool and Chester registries and, I believe, in district registries generally for some considerable time, and I am under the impression that no objection is made in the principal registry to bookwise engrossments. I am not sure, but I believe a notice was issued some time ago that such engrossments would be accepted. There can be no question as to the convenience of bookwise over the old plan. FRANK H. BAXTER.

Addison's ITALIAN.-I am willing to recognise the learning which Mr. Pickersgill has brought to his defence of the Italian epitaph as written by Addison, but that there is probably something wrong about it may be inferred from Malone's note in Boswell to the effect that: “Addison, however, does not mention where this celebrated epitaph, which has eluded a very diligent inquiry, is found ”: (cf. c. 31, Boswell's “Life of Johnson "). Neither Boswell nor, so far, any of his editors have given the reference in Addison. I have no doubt Mr. Pickersgill has verified my reference, though he has not punctuated the epitaph as it is panctuated either by Addison or Boswell. I feel there is a double impropriety in my engaging in a controversy with Mr. Pickersgill on the peculiarities of the irregular verb, but with reference to his contention that staro is a syncopated form of stara io, I may remark he has not given an instance where it is found, or any rule by which one could expect it. The Italian verb does not always require the personal pronoun, the person being sufficiently marked by the termination of the verb, and from the epitaph itself it is clear that the pronoun may be omitted, as Mr. Pickersgill would allow. The epitaph may be proverbial or epigrammatic, but the fact that its source has eluded a diligent inquiry is not in favour of its being so. Most of our own epigrammatic expressions in English, for instance, are traced to various authors, such as Johnson or Sheridan. With reference to Addison being right in writing ben, and Boswell being wrong in writing bene in a colloquial expression, as Mr. Pickersgill contends, the best possible answer is that Horace Walpole, quoting this same epitaph, wrote bene and not ben : (cf. “Essays of a Critic,” vol. 2, p. 166). It may be added that Horace Walpole, who has been called the best letter-writer in the English language, wrote bene in a letter addressed to the celebrated scholar Mason. “ Ben trovato may be “damnably iterated” by English speakers and writers, but so are such solecisms as coûte qui coûte, toujours perdrix, and others one could mention. Mr. Lecky, in bis criticism of the Junius letters, says that that great writer showed to especial advantage in quotation. But, surely, quotation, to be effective, ought to be correct. 9, Stone-buildings.

N. W. SIBLEY. Referring to Mr. Sibley's letter in your issue of the 7th inst., the word stavo in the Italian epitaph as quoted by Addison, “ Stavo ben ma per star meglio, sto qui,” is not nonsense, but is perfectly grammatical. This appears from the following extract from Perini's Italian Grammar, 3rd edit., published in 1892: "Both the first and the third persons singular of the imperfect indicative of all verbs formerly ended in a, but now the general tendency of Italian writers is to mark the termination of the first person in o and that of the third in a. By this means it is easier to mark the distinction between the first and the third person singular without the aid of the personal pronouns.” I will not refer to Mr. Sibley's criticism on Addison's use of the word ben, as Mr. Pickersgill has already stated, and, I think, quite correctly, that such word is more common than bene in proverbial or epigrammatic Italian.

STAMPS ON TRANSFERS OF MORTGAGE. - It may interest your readers to know that recently I submitted a transfer of mortgage to the Inland Revenue authorities, where a portion only of the debt was transferred, thus coming within the terms of the letter issued by the authorities last spring, and that the authorities allowed the extra stamp duty to be impressed upon the deed without requiring the payment of any penalty.

Queries. 8. MARRIAGE SETTLEMENT - POLICY OF ASSURANCE-TRUSTEES. -A., by his marriage settlement, assigned a policy of assurance on his own life to trustees upon certain trusts in favour of his wife, B., and covenanted with the trustees to pay the premiums thereon, and that if he should make default the trustees might pay and recover by action. A. became bankrupt, but continued to pay the premiums for some years afterwards. He then gave notice to the trustees that he was not in a position to do so any longer, and the trustees, at the request of A. and B., paid the premiums for the next few years. B. then died. Since her death the trustees have paid the premiums. The assurance company have offered to exchange the present policy for a fully-paid policy of £200 or £300 less value, and A. has requested the trustees to agree to this. Can the trustees safely accept this offer, A. not having obtained his discharge ?

LAND TAX REDEMPTION.-I read with great interest the paragraph in the Law Times of the 7th inst. upon the effect of the recent Finance Act upon redemption of the land tax. Upon referring to the Act, I find that the tax can be redeemed by payment to the Commissioners of Inland Bevenue of a capital sum estimated at thirty times the value of the last assessment, either by a single payment or by annual instalments. On redemption of the tax the owner becomes entitled to a certificate from the

9. COMBINED RECEIPT AND CHEQUE.-It is becoming a practice in some commercial firms to adopt a combined cheque. That is, an order on a bank like an ordinary cheque, and at the foot thereof a receipt. Do any of your readers know of any legal or other objections to such practice ?

Re Tanqueray-Williaume, Johnson v. Tustin, &c., would prove very useful. The Equity paper also required a good knowledge of recent case law, and such points as Trego v. Hunt, Hood-Barrs v. Heriot, and subsequent cases were more or less involved. The family of Agar-Ellis have done much on various occasions towards elucidating the law on parental authority, which the examiner has not overlooked. The question of the “one man pany is likely to attract the attention of the legal world for some time, and if it has been overlooked by the student so much the worse for him at the recent ordeal. In the Common Law paper, which included bankruptcy, there was nothing very striking, but the three recent important statutes on Bills of Exchange, Sale of Goods, and Libel, each monopolise a question. As regards the fourth paper, the questions on criminal law were better selected than those at the "pass " examination, while those on divorce involved the facts which occurred in Crawford v. Crawford and Butler v. Butler. On the whole the last was a nice paper, and the Honours list ought to be full.

Answers. (Q. 6.) SUCCESSION DUTY-Who Pays, AND How CalcULATED.--Taking the questions seriatim : (1) Such succession daty can be claimed. See sect. 15 of 15 & 16 Vict. c. 51 (the Succession Duty Act). (2) The rate of duty is calculated according to the consanguinity of F. to A., and not according to the consanguinity of B. and C. to J. and F., and therefore is at 3 per cent. See sects. 10 and 15 of the above Act, and Hanson's Succession Daty Acts, 3rd edition, p. 285. (3) The amount of the duty is calculated on the lives of the alienees (B. and C.), and not on the lives of the alienors. See Solicitor-General v. The Law Reversionary Interest Society_(L. Rep. 8 Ex. 233. (4) There is no possible way in which J. and F. could have defeated the claim of the Crown for succession duty, which is a charge on the property. See 42 of the Succession Duty Act, 1853. It would, however, have made a difference if A. had devised to J. and F. as joint tenants, because J. and F. could have, either alone or together, severed the joint tenancy, so that neither had any indefeasible estate in remainder on the death of the other, and therefore no succession duty would attach. This is, of course, assuming they had assigned as in the example stated. (5) Sect. 15 of the Succession Duty Act applies if the alienation by the successor is for valuable consideration, adequate or inadequate.

(Q. 7.) MARRIAGE OF DIVORCED WOMAN BEFORE DECREE ABSOLUTE. -In answer to the points raised in your last issue by your correspondent " Managing Clerk,” it seems perfectly clear that a marriage contracted between decree nisi and decree absolute is void: vide 31 & 32 Vict. c. 77, s. 4, which provides that either of the parties to a divorce may re-marry after the decree has been made absolute. A marriage contracted by either party between the decree nisi and the decree absolute is void : (see Noble v. N., 1 L. Rep. P. & D. 691 ; 38 L. J. 52, P. & M.; Wickham v. Wickham, 43 L. Rep. 445 ; 6 P. & D. 11, 49 L. J. 70, P. & D.). Before proceeding against the wife for bigamy, it would be necessary, one supposes, to be able to prove the knowledge of the wife of her inability to contract a marriage before decree absolute. The case referred to by your correspondent seems a proper one for the husband to obtain a decree of nullity.

LAW STUDENTS' JOURNAL.

THE NOVEMBER INTERMEDIATE. The first paper in Stephen's Commentaries sailed steadily through those portions of Volume I. which are devoted to real property, and the questions seem to follow the sequence of chapters more uniformly than on some previous occasions. The paper was fair and easy, and involved classification of estates, liability of various tenants for waste, &c. As the question on descent involved a competition between blood relations, stepson, and a relation by marriage, it is apparent that most candidates would have but little difficulty in making a correct guess even if they had never read a line of the chapter on descent. The questions on Head II., if due allowance be made for the easier character of the subject matter, were more difficult than those on real property, In one or two of these however, the chief difficulty is their extreme simplicity. For instance, Question 3, “In a bill of exchange who are the drawer, the drawee, and the payee respectively ? it seems to us that the only difficulty is one of composition. We presume that Question 5 on a composition with creditors refers to one under the Bankruptcy Act and not a voluntary composition. We have no hesitation in predicting that, if any failures occur, Head III. will be the cause. This head is of necessity a kind of omnium gatherum, and on the present occasion the questions seem a little harder than usual, and certainly deal with points which might be easily overlooked.

THE HONOURS EXAMINATION. It is very curious that at the Intermediate, an examination at which the "articled ” clerk is not likely to have mastered much more than Stephen's Commentaries, he should be required to give a list of the principal law books "read and studied,” and the particular branches of law to which he has hitherto principally applied himself, while at the Honours, when such information might possibly be of some importance, the only questions asked are age and “Where do you come from?" Still, the other questions seem practical enough, more especially those in conveyancing, which dealt with the imposition of restrictive covenants in building schemes, the rule in Howe v. Dartmouth, the form of imposing a restraint on anticipation, and the advisability of providing for marriage expenses and settlement on the eve of marriage. The paper also included a deal of matter as regards which some knowledge of cases, such as Fitzgerald's Trustees v. Mellersh,

LEGAL OBITUARY.

[blocks in formation]

Mr. JAMES PRICE, solicitor, of Haverfordwest, died on the 29th ult. He entered the office of the late Mr. Morgan James, magistrates' clerk, who was eventually succeeded by his son Mr. Vaughan James, about the year 1853. With the latter he may be said to have commenced his legal career proper, for after serving several years he proceeded to Chippenham, where he was articled to a firm of solicitors. Returning to his native town a year or two later he qualified as a solicitor in 1865. Upon the retirement of Mr. Herbert Lloyd he was appointed registrar of the County Court, by Judge Beresford in 1881. The death of his late employer (Mr. Vaughan James) in 1886 rendered vacant a number of public offices, and to Mr. Price's share fell the justices' clerkships for the divisions of Roose and Dangleddy, and the position of Coroner for the lower division of the county. That period marked the termination of his active advocacy in court. Mr. Price was a member and vice-chairman of the Borough School Board, a member of the old body of governors of Tasker's Charity and subsequent to the Intermediate Education Act, one of the local managers of Tasker's School. He was a member of the Incorporated Law Society and the Solicitors' Benevolent Institution. He leaves a widow, two sons and two daughters.

Mr. MONOMOHUN GHOSE, the distinguished Calcutta lawyer, has, according to the Indian Mail just arrived, died suddenly at Krishnaghur. He was called to the Bar in 1866, and is said to have been the first native of India to practise as a barrister. Like more than one advocate who has achieved great success in the Indian Courts of Justice, Mr. Ghose before entering upon a legal career had endeavoured to pass the examination for the Indian Civil Service. He was the son of a subordinate judge, Babu Ram Lochun Ghose, who attracted Lord Auckland's attention, and was born in 1844, receiving his education at the Presidency College in Calcutta and in England. Mr. Ghose actively interested himself in Indian social reform, and was the leader of the movement for separating judicial from executive functions as regards the trial of criminal cases.

He was the elder brother of Mr. Lal Mohun Ghose, who in 1885 and again in 1886 stood as Radical candidate for Deptford against Mr. W. J. Evelyn.
