MR. ATHERLEY JONES, Q.C., M.P., has obtained a conditional promise from Mr. Balfour of a day for his motion for a Royal Commission to inquire into the working of the Judicature Acts. It is believed to be possible that he will receive support from other lawyers, and prominently from Mr. Cozens-Hardy, Q.C., M.P., who, as a member of the Rule Committee and chairman of the General Council of the Bar, would carry great weight.

The new rules for which the Profession have long been looking are expected to come forward in detachments. They present to the Rule Committee a labour which must extend over a very long period. As prepared they will be submitted to the Bar Council and the Council of the Incorporated Law Society before being published in the Gazette.

THE Hardwicke Society, at its meeting last week, passed unanimously a resolution that the constitution and procedure of our Common Law Courts require amendment.

CONTENTS.

A HUMORIST among the debaters gave a new reading of the maxim, “Interest reipublicæ ut sit finis litium.” Rightly or wrongly, he attributed to many of the judges the view that this means, not an end of a cause, that is, finality, but a cessation of all litigation.

For the time being the projected Bar Club is dropped by the Bar Council. The probability is that it will be brought forward at the annual meeting of the Bar in April. The scheme receives little favour from the Benchers of the Inns of Court, who regard it as a first step towards concentration. So it is. And so it ought to be.

The Court of Appeal has decided this week that, where money is paid into court before defence, a subsequent statement of defence denying liability is bad. We shall deal with this important decision next week. It throws some light upon the rule against communicating the fact of payment into court to the jury. The whole subject must soon. receive re-consideration.

MR. Curzon's refusal to lay upon the table of the House of Commons “communications ” which he stated in debate were made to the Government by the Italian Government, "repeatedly requesting" the Government to aid Italy by a forward movement in the Soudan, was supported subsequently by the SPEAKER when the matter was brought under his notice on somewhat technical grounds.
