B., under the contract, enters upon the property, and exercises his right of shooting. Shortly afterwards A. lets Whiteacre to C., a farmer, without consulting B. C. proceeds to shoot the ground game under the Act of 1880. B. complains to A. that, after letting all the shooting rights to him, he had no business to let the farm to C., and, as B. took the shooting more particularly for the ground game, he brings an action against A. for breach of contract. A. pleads (1) that a right to shoot cannot arise without a deed ; (2) that even assuming that a deed is not necessary, at any rate, by virtue of sect. 4 of the Statute of Frands, the verbal contract did not bind him ; (3) that even assuming the verbal contract, followed by entry, to have been binding, he (A.) had a perfect right to let the farm to C., as the contract with B. was made on the implied understanding that A. was to have the right to let the lands for agricultural purposes, which letting would, under the Ground Game Act 1880, carry with it the right, concurrently with B.'s rights, to shoot the ground game.

LEGAL OBITUARY.

Dr. CHARLES J. Foster has just died at Christchurch, New Zealand, in the seventy-eighth year of his age. He was a distinguished member of the London University, from which he received the degree of LL.D. in 1849, and of which he was a fellow from 1858 to 1863. He was formerly a member of the Liberation Society, and for some years was its parliamentary secretary. He was called to the Bar at Lincoln's-inn in 1841. His wellknown work on jurisprudence, published in England before he went to New Zealand, added much to his reputation, and a second work on the same subject, but dealing with the practice of the colonial courts, is of con. siderable importance. During his residence in Christchurch he continued almost to the last the pursuit of his profession. He married, in 1859, the only daughter of the late Mr. James Ogston, who, with a son and a daughter, survives him.

OTHER matters are engaging the attention of this body which are of great public importance-ex.gr., the Evidence in Criminal Cases Bill, the establishment of central criminal courts in the counties, the continuous sittings of an adequate fixed number of courts of Nisi Prius in London, and the question of doing away with the special fee now payable when a barrister goes off his own circuit.

OWING to the beneficence of the members of the Bar who control the purse-strings of the Inns of Court—the Benchers --which made their annual grant of £600 retrospective, the council is in funds, and has authorised the executive committee to increase the salaries of a somewhat hard-worked staff.

[blocks in formation]

As was to be expected, the transfer of the patent actions from the Chancery to the Queen's Bench Division has already resulted in the blocking of one court, sitting to take non-juries. There is ample work for a Patent Court, and if an additional judge is to be had, he might well be selected from the scientific lawyers, and given a special court.

County Court judges do not all agree in their habits. The practitioners in the Birmingham County Court complain that, whilst Judge WHITEHORNE adjourns for half an hour for lunch, Judge HARINGTON eats a sandwich in a momentary interval. Judge HARINGTON ought to reflect that sandwiches do not agree with all legal digestions, and a reasonable pause midway, even in the heated career of County Court business, might be a good sanitary provision.

THE Elizabethan Stage Society sacrificed everything to tradition in their reproduction of "Twelfth Night" in the Middle Temple Hall this week. The Inn has a fine hall, whose acoustic properties are tested only when the TREASURER gives the toast of "The Queen.” Had elocution been taught in it, the glaring and hopeless defect would have been discovered and perhaps remedied. On Wednesday Equity took up a position on raised seats at the remote end of the hall. The actors were not distinctly audible half-way down. Some guests read the play while the acting was going on—a proceeding destructive of all real enjoyment. The representation was very good-as an historic picture quite unique.

AMONGST the three short statutes passed last session to amend the Local Government Act 1894 was the Local Government (Elections) (No. 2) Act 1896, which provided that any person otherwise qualified for election, but who had entered into residence on or before the 25th March 1895,
