HORACE Cox, “Law Times" omice, Windsor House, Bream's-buildings, E.O.

How quickly some members of the Bar rise and disappear was graphically recalled by Mr. Willis on the occasion of his dinner. He had led Lord BOWEN as a junior barrister ; he had been led by Lord Justice THESIGER now in his grave for seventeen years; whilst he had seen the rise of Sir GEORGE JESSEL, and his great career of nine years as a judge, and he has been dead fourteen years. So pass the most imposing of us. THE Government is now alive to the unfairly prolonged detention of prisoners awaiting trial. To obviate this it is necessary that quarter sessions should have enlarged jurisdiction and sit as frequently as required, and that assizes should be held at shorter and regular intervals. This reform is imperative, but, nevertheless, is only part of the reforms of which our judicial system sadly stands in need.

CONTENTS.

....... 477

A Bill for the establishment of a Court of Criminal Appeal (for the revision of sentences) was before the House of Commons on Wednesday. The second reading was moved by Mr. PICKERSGILL and seconded by Sir ALBERT ROLLIT. The latter expressed the view that the absence of a Court of Criminal Appeal is a great blot upon our jurisprudence, Sir ROBERT REID gave his hearty support, and the HOME SECRETARY could not see any strong reason for opposing the Bill, which was read a second time by a majority of 40.

At the dinner to his Honour Judge WILLIS, Q.C., the ATTORNEY-GENERAL said that the CHANCELLOR was to be congratulated upon finding men of Mr. Willis's character and capacity to accept County Court judgeships.

The dinner was a conspicuous success. The guest of the evening indicated the cause of his success- -an invariable and burning desire to succeed in whatever he undertook. In the words of a great writer, he advised young barristers not to take down their shutters before they had something in the shop window, to know their law at Nisi Prius, and never to talk slang in court. This is very excellent advice.

We doubt whether stagnation in the Queen's Bench Division has ever so steadily prevailed as during the present sittings. For days and weeks little progress has been made with the lists, and the return of judges from circuit was at once marked by the requirements of the House of Lords, which took away seven. The Profession has experienced a conse quent depression of a very severe kind.

know," he said, "that you will not impute to want of most profound respect for you the determination I have formed of not soliciting the vote of an inaividual. I cannot run the risk of soliciting a suitor in the character of an elector, for to do so would not befit my judicial situation."

The abuse of Order XIV. is becoming so serious as to attract the attention of the judges. The primary object of the procedure-to secure summary judgment in actions of debt to which there is no substantial defence is an excellent one. When that is made subordinate to other objects, such as getting on oath a defendant's defence and evidence at an early stage, the evil may be great. A high authority has intimated that it may be necessary to stop this kind of thing. Another misuse of the machinery arises when a plaintiff who would never enter a witness-box launches an affidavit full of prejudice, and secures payment into court or judgment in default. We think it should be necessary in such cases for the cause to be entered for preliminary hearing in court.

The longer we live, however, the clearer it becomes that our new methods are full of vices from which the old system was free.

[ocr errors]

The trouble about the country cases which are brought to London threatens to become serious. Mr. Justice HAWKINS continues to comment upon what he conceives to be an attack upon the circuit system ; but he fails to inquire the reason of this, which is that the circuit arrangements aro

not satisfactory. The single judge system has proved to a large extent a failure; the times fixed for the several places are sometimes too long, sometimes too short, which means that business is uncertain. Long cases may be thrown over or hurried at great loss to all parties. If the assize system was satisfactory parties would of course try where they live-as they do in County Courts. The reflection rests upon the assize system, not upon the parties or their advisers, who have recourse to the tribunal where it is most to be relied upon. Those who come to London adopt the least of two evils, and we cannot see that they can be blamed, or that any complaint is well founded.

The personnel of the County Court Bench is worthy of notice. The judges number 55. Of these 11 have been there for 20 years or over, their Honours Judge Stonor and Judge TURNER having respectively occupied their positions for 32 and 29 years. The majority of the appointments, however, are of recent date, for, during the last six years, 29 new judges have been placed on the Bench, of which no less than 13 were “silks." The tendency of late years has been to appoint members of the Inner Bar to seats on the County Court Bench, for, since the commencement of 1895, of the 12 judges appointed, only 4 were selected from the Outer Bar.

PACIFIC BLOCKADE. SIR HENRY MAINE once said that it was impossible to overstate the value of Roman Law as a key to International Law. But pacific blockade, being a modern branch of the law of reprisals, is a growth of the second quarter of this century, and has no precedent except in very recent times. Prof. Holland, in his letter to the Times on the 8th March instant, only recorded the unanimous judgment of writers on International Law, when he said that “the practice of pacific blockade is comparatively modern, dating only from 1827.” It may be said to have steadily risen in the estimate of writers on International Law since its first inception, when it was undoubtedly treated as an anomalous exercise of belligerent rights in time of peace. A recent publicist, M. Frantz Despagnet, in a work entitled " Cours de Droit International Public,” published at Paris in 1896, after saying that pacific blockade was profoundly illogical, because it was an act of belligerency executed by a state which would not recognise a condition of war, proceeds to state : "Ainsi que le disait pittoresquement un diplomat turo apres la bataille de Navarino, C'est comme si, en cassant la tête d'un homme, on l'assurait en même temps de son amitió; un pareil procédé ne serait-il pas fou ?” But Prof. T. E. Holland, in the letter which has been referred to, showed that in its mitigated form, as directed only against ships of the quasi-enemy, pacific blockade has received the substantially unanimous approbation of the Institat de Droit International at Heidelberg in 1887, after a very interesting debate, in which the advocates of the practice were led by M. Perels, of the Prussian Admiralty, and its detractors by Prof. Geffcken. These will be quoted later ; but it is perhaps of interest to note Prof. Holland's definition of pacific blockade : "A pacific blockade is one of the various methods-generically described as reprisals, such as

embargo,' or seizure of ships on the high seas-by which, without resort to war, pressure, topographically or otherwise limited in extent, may be put upon an offending state.” Omitting the controversial points of Prof. Holland's letter, it proceeds : “The opinion of statesmen and jurists upon this point has undergone a change, and this because the practice known as pacific blockade has itself changed. The practice. first directed against ships under all flags, and ships arrested for a breach of pacific blockude were at one time confiscated, as they would have been in time of war. It has been purged of these defects as the result of discussions, diplomatic and scientific. As now understood, the blockade is enforced only against vessels belonging to the quasi-enemy, and even such vessels when arrested are not confiscated, but merely detained until the blockade is raised. International Law does not stand still, and having some acquaintance with continental opinion on the topic under consideration. I read with amazement M.'s assertion that the majority in number, the most weighty in authority of the writers on International Law, have never failed to protest against such practices as indefensible in principle.' The fact is, that the objections made, e.g., by Lord Palmerston in 1846, and by several writers of text-books to pacific blockade, had reference to the abuses connected with the earlier stage of its development.

It is true that in an earlier edition of his work upon International Law, by my learned friend Mr. Hall, he did use the words attributed to him by M. It is difficult to see how a pacific blockade is justifiable. But many things, notably Lord Granville's correspondence with France in 1884, and the blockade of the Greek coast in 1886, have occurred since these words were written.” The Chichele Professor of International Law thus called attention to the following passage of the latest edition of “International Law," by W. E. Hall, M.A., “Pacific blockade, like any other practice, may be abused. But subject to the limitation that it shall be felt only by the blockaded country, it is a convenient practice, it is a mild one in its effect even upon that country, and it may sometimes be of use as a measure of international police, when hostile action would be inappropriate, and no action less stringent would be effective": (edit. 1890, part ii. c. 11, p. 372).

A note on the same page of Mr. Hall's work makes clear the divergence that exists among publicists as to the justifiability of pacific blockade: * Pistoye and Duverdy (Traité des Prises Maritime,' ii. 376-8), and Woolsey (art. 119) deny the existence of a right to enforce pacific blockade, but their minds were fixed upon its earlier form” (For objections to pacific blockade from a modern point of view, cf. M. Frantz Despagnet's "Cours de Droit International Public" (1894). Mr. Hall's note continues : * Heffter (art. 111), Calvo (art. 1591), and Cauchy (ii. 428), pronounce in favour of it. Bluntschli (art. 506-7) approves of the practice on condition that the blockade shall be so conducted as not to touch third states. Von Bulmerincq (Holzendorff's Handbuch, 1889, vol. iv. art. 127) unwittingly admits it as being, at any rate, a less evil than war."

Among modern publicists, Mr. Lawrance, in his “ Principles of International Law (1896), and M. Alpbonse Rivier, Consul-General of the Swiss Confederation, Professor in the University of Brussels, Honorary Professor in the University of Lausanne, in his “ Principes du Droit des

(Paris, 1896), have pronounced an opinion on pacific blockade entirely in harmony with the favourable view that Professor T. E. Holland assumed in his letter to the Times of the 8th inst. Mr. Lawrance

The Government have made an excellent concession to public and professional opinion in the exercise of their judicial patronage in Ireland. The County Court judgeship of the county of Down became vacant, and it was generally known that Mr. WALKER CRAIG, Q.C., was likely to be appointed. Strong representations were made in the House of Commons and the Press that Mr. CRAIG, to whose personal and professional qualifications for a judicial post no exception was or could be taken, should not be selected for this appointment on the ground that he had twice been a Parliamentary candidate in contests for the county Down, that he was even then a selected Parliamentary candidate for a division of that county, and that it was inexpedient that a gentleman who had been so involved in politics should adjudicate between litigants who most undoubtedly should be classed either as his political friends or his opponents. The Government have appointed another gentleman who was already a County Court judge to the county Down, and have conferred on Mr. Craig the vacancy thus created. The principle thus acknowledged is not novel. When Mr. CURRAN, who was at the time Master of the Rolls in Ireland, received a requisition to contest the borough of Newry in this very county of Down, he wrote a letter in which he clearly appreciated the delicacy of the relations between a man occupying a judicial position and his political supporters or opponents.
