HARDWICKE SOCIETY. At the meeting held on Friday, the 26th March, Mr. mund Allen moved : “That this House approves of the policy pursued by Her Majesty's Government with respect to the Cretan insurrection, and is of opinion that the Great Powers would be justified in resorting to any measures necessary for the enforcerr.ent of their demands upon Greece.” Mr. H. W. Vaughan Williams opposed. The motion was carried.

surely it resolves itself into a transfer from the rich pocket to the poor pocket of the class, and becomes no offering at all as far as the class is concerned. Were it proposed to place the funds collected at the absolute disposal of Her Majesty, I, for one, would hail the scheme with unqualified approval; but, as this does not appear to be the case, I am reluctantly compelled to withhold my subscription. I would, however, in conclusion, venture to suggest that, as the council have made their selection without consulting the Profession at large, they should provide an alternative scheme--say a fund, either to be placed at the disposal of the Queen, or for the acquisition of a portrait or bust of Her Majesty to be placed in the hall of the Law Institution.

Herbert Smith, N. Tebbutt, and A. M. Begg also took part in the debate. After a reply from Mr. Symonds, the usual voting took place, with the result that the motion was carried by one vote.

Low 1. BOUVERIE.— Referring to your article in the Law TIMES newspaper (the 20th March), p. 473, col. ii., in which appears the following: “In Low v. Bouverie, in which the House of Lords afirmed the decision of the Court of Appeal, the Lord Justice, in an elaborate, &c.," is it a fact that this case was carried to the House of Lords, and, if so, would you oblige me with the reference to the report (if reported) ? The report of the Court of Appeal is in 1891.

Queries. 29. COVENANT.-In 1852 A. B. demised leaseholds to C. D. for 999 years, C. D. giving usual covenants to pay rent and observe covenants. In 1873 C. D. died. In 1876 the executors of C. D. assigned to E. F. for residue of said term of 999 years, the usual covenant for indemnity being inserted, but E. F. (the assignee) did not execute the assignment; for wbat reason is not known. In 1888 E. F. died intestate, and his personal representative has now agreed to sell the property to G. H. Can the personal representative of E. F. insist on G. H. entering into a covenant to indemnify him against the rent and covenants of the lease, inasmuch as E. F. did not execute the assignment to himself in 1876, although the usual covenant for indemnity was inserted therein ? Authorities will oblige.

INQUISITOR.

30. LEGACIES.–Since the Finance Act 1894 abolished the difference in the rates of the legacy and succession duty, is there any object, where legacies are directed to be paid out of a mixed fund, in directing that they shall be paid primarily out of the personal estate ?

B. L.

31. LAW OF DISTRESS AMENDMENT ACT.-Can any of your corres. pondents inform me what fees are allowed to bailiffs under this Act where the distress is withdrawn or no sale takes place and the rent distrained for exceeds £20 ? Also, whether any of the London County Courts have a fixed scale applicable to the above cases.

SOLICITORS AND THE DIAMOND JUBILEE.—I have waited for your last issue in the hope that someone whose name would have carried more weight than my own would have come forward in your columns to enter a protest against the mode selected by the council of the Incorporated Law Society for commemorating the sixtieth year of Her Majesty's reign. Unfortunately “the solicitors of England” with their usual apatby seem so far to have confined the expression of their disapproval of the council's scheme to withholding their subscriptions--for no one can pretend that the few enbscribers whose names are at present announced representative of the Profession at large. The proposal, as I understand it, is for “the solicitors of England” to commemorate in a way worthy of their Profession the sixtieth year of Her Majesty's reign. With this object I need hardly say I am heartily in accord, and had the opinion of the Profession been taken as to the mode of celebration to be adopted I should have bowed to the decision of the majority and not have troubled you with this letter. As it is, the Profession at large has not been consulted, and as far as I can ascertain does not approve of the council's choice. Speaking for myself, my chief objection to the pension scheme is that it is utterly unworthy both of the Profession and the occasion. No ore denies the merit of a combination for the aseistance of professional brothers in distress. It is a duty, and a duty which the existence of the Solicitors' Benevolent Society shows to bave been recognised by the Profession. There are, however, times when other interests paramount even to charity. We have the poor always with us, bat not always have an opportunity of offering to Sovereign an express mark of our loyalty and esteem, or of adding to our small stock of corporate heirlooms a memento of that Sovereign upon which we and

can look with that legitimate pride which is so wanting in us solicitors as a body. My objection, however, does not rest here. The scheme selected by the council seems to me to be nothing more than a species of that homecharity known as, “ Taking one's money out of one pocket and putting it into the other.” The gift, be it remembered, purports. to be a thank. offering from “the solicitors of England” is a class, and, this being so,

Mr. EDMUND MÄGILDOWNY HOPE FULTON, of the Indian Civil Service, has been appointed a Judge of the High Court of Judicature at Bombay, in the place of Mr. Justice Jardine, retired.

The Hon. CHARLES ARTHUR Roe, Chief Judge of the Chief Court of the Punjab, has bad the dignity of Knighthood conferred upon him.

Mr. ARTHUR W. TEMPLE, solicitor, of Bridport, has been appointed Clerk to the Magistrates for the Borough of Bridport.

Mr. ALLEN PETER STREET, of Newcastle-under-Lyme, has been appointed a Commissioner for Oaths. Mr. Street was admitted in Jan. 1891.

Mr. HENRY ROBERT MORGAN, of the firm of Jarvis and Morgan, of King's Lyon and Norwich, has been appointed a Commissioner to administer Oaths.

THE Easter Vacation Regulations are a little complicated, No court will sit. The judge will sit in chambers on the 22nd inst. At other times his Lordship can be approached by post or personally, “ in which latter case the applicant should proceed to Sutton by the London, Brighton, and South Coast Railway, and thence by cab to Woodmansterne.?" It is not to be assumed that the adoption of any other route or mode of locomotion will render invalid or ineffective any order made by the learned judge at Woodmansterne.

Thursday morning. Advertisements, to insure insertion, must reach the office not later than Wednesday at 6 p.m.

LAWYERS writing in the lay press have been calling upon the CHANCELLOR to “hurry up” in filling the vacancy on the Bench of the Queen's Bench Division. Surely hurrying up in such a matter is very foolish. Judges can and do remain away months indisposed without substitutes being found, and a little deliberation before making a judge is fully justified. A judge is a man invested with vast influence upon human life and happiness. He may do infinite good or incalculable mischief. To select the best man is a task requiring judgment and discrimination.

WE have rather enjoyed the interval, as showing the wonderful grounds upon which some people apparently in the Profession think promotion to the Bench may be based One nominee has a safe seat, and is a party hack; one has eat as a Commissioner of Assize; a third has been unheard of in the courts for years ; a fourth, and he only of the four, enjoys a large practice. Sir Frank LOCKWOOD is understood to have “

a claim.” Is this because he was Solicitor-General for some time after his own party went out ?

The Bar Council has prepared its annual statement. As an organisation it has been hard at work for more than twelve months. The prominent feature of its constant sittings is the assiduity with which very busy men attend. When it was formed it was said, You will never get the best men to give attention to it. Experience proves precisely the reverse. Singularly enough, the candidate who received the most votes has rarely attended. But, on the whole, the number of members present at council meetings and frequent and numerous committee meetings has been very remarkable.

Has the Bar Council realised expectations in all other respects ? Certainly not. Professional interests have been keenly safeguarded. But nothing appears in the annual statement to indicate that the Council can take a large view of its responsibilities. The profit and convenience of members of the Bar—conserve those and then consider the suitor. No vested interest, it would appear, is to be touched, however beneficial the result to the administration of justice. We candidly admit that it was hardly to be expected that a council largely composed of prosperous barristers would all at once see the expediency of consulting public interests first and their own afterwards, because a professional trade union cannot quickly disabuse itself of the belief that in some way
