The objects of the Mineral Owners' Association of Great Britain which has been formed are : The protection of the property of mineral owners, and the advancement of their rights and common interests; the resistance of unjust or unreasonable claims for duty; the composing of disputes with the Revenue, or other department of the Government, or with any public authority; the institution or defence of legal proceedings; the amendment of Acts of Parliament and the promotion and supervision of legislative measures affecting mineral owners; the communication with members and officials of the Government, of any public authority, and of the Houses of Parliament, in respect of any matter affecting mineral owners; the redress or removal of any grievance or burden, and the promotion and support of measures and objects for the benefit of mineral owners, the doing all or any of the above things either alone or in concert with any other body or person; and the raising of funds for all or any of the foregoing purposes.

The Local Government Board has authorised experimentally the institution of a register of those casuals who are identified by the board's officers as habitual vagrants. This register. which is under the control of the Metropolitan Poor Law inspectors, has now been in operation for some months, and particulars of nearly 1000 persons of this class have already been recorded. Certain charitable agencies, dealing with homeless persons, have now been invited to supplement the register by contributing records of such persons applying to them as it appears desirable should be registered. By this means an important step has been taken in the direction of concerted action between the authorities and voluntary agencies and the prevention of overlapping and checking of imposition.— Times.

40. INCOME Tax.-A., in contemplation of his marriage with B., entered into a covenant for the payment to her during her widowhood, if she survived him, of an annuity of £250 per annum, but did not settle any sum to answer the amount. He has now died leaving real and personal estate and his will does not refer to the annuity nor make further provision for the widow, nor is there a trust for conversion. His personal estate is, as it was at the time of his marriage, insufficient to pay the annusty in full out of the income thereof, if invested, or to purchase an annuity. It is proposed, therefore, to pay the annuity out of income and capital, and, when the personal estate is exhausted, to have resort to the real estate, the rents of which will be more than sufficient to satisfy the annuity in full. Will the trustees of the will be entitled to retain income tax on the whole of the annuity, and will they be bound to account to the Inland Revenue Authorities for the tax which has been deducted in respect of such part of the annuity as has been raised out of capital, particularly as income tax will be paid in respect of the whole of the rents and profits of the deceased's estate, real and personal, and resort to the personal estate (income and capital) for payment of the annuity is merely a matter as between the residuary legatees and devisees.

these questions from the consideration of the whole House, and there was a tendency to meet that difficulty by raising the questions again when the Bill, as reported by the committee, was considered by the House. It had sometimes occurred to him that the general discussion of principles which took place on the second reading of a Bill might be supplemented by instructions laying down for the guidance of the committee general rules on particular points of importance, and that thus the issues might be sifted by distinguishing principles from details. No one pretended that the legislative procedure of Parliament was satisfactory; but it must be remembered that the problem of legislating through the agency of a representative and popular assembly, the necessity for which was admitted by every free country, had nowhero been satisfactorily solved, and he doubted whether we could from the procedure of other Legislatures derive many useful hints for our own. Не asked how far had the Legislature in recent years been successful in improving the form of the English statute law? What was it that was mainly responsible for the unintelligible form of many Bills, and especially for the abuses of that method of referențial legislation that was so generally criticised ? Surely it was the chaotic and fragmentary condition of our statute law, which made an amending Act a new and ugly patch on a complicated piece of patchwork. The measures of consolidation which had passed attracted little interest inside the House, and, in spite of their admitted utility, they were not really popular ouside it, especially among the older members of the Legal Profession; for, when one had spent laborious days and nights in mastering the old statutes, it was a nuisance to have to familiarise oneself with new language, numbering, and arrangement. Thanks mainly to the practical interest shown in the subject by the present Lord Chancellor and to the great pains which he had bestowed upon it, reasonably good progress was being made, and, if one bore in mind the difficulties and obstacles in the way of passing these measures, the number of consolidation Acts which had become law in recent years was quite encouraging. The Licensing Consolidation Act of 1910 supplied gratifying evidence that, in dealing with measures of this kind, the House would place great confidence in their committees, if there

to believe that their work had been carefully and thoroughly done. The Lord Chancellor's Perjury Act of the present year effected an enormous simplification of the law.

He hoped that the same process would be applied to other branches of the criminal law as embodied in statutes. With regard to revising the form of a Bill after it had passed through committee or had been allowed to pass through its earlier stages without careful examination, it would be easy for the House of Lords to constitute an effective revising body by forming a small legislative committee. But it was not easy to combine the functions of a revising body, accepting the principles of a measure and merely endeavouring by improvement of form to give better and fuller effect to those principles, with a claim to exercise co-ordinate legislative authority.

Lord Justice Fletcher Moulton, in proposing a vote of thanks to the lecturer, spoke of the trouble of interpreting the laws that were made. Bills were carefully drawn and one must give to the Legislature the merit of having had a consistent idea throughout, and must feel certain that the amendments had been accepted as compromises, and that the whole had been produced by the most diverse intellects that 670 people sitting together could bring to bear. He often thought that the process of forming an English law were as if a delicate instrument should be constructed by the most skilled workmen, and then that a healthy young blacksmith should be set to bang at it with a sledge hammer. He knew the office which drafted a Government Bill and the ability of the men who worked there, but it was no wonder that after its subsequent treatment the Bill became a puzzle. The consolidation of the statutes formed the real method of codification which assisted the English system of law. Fortunately, this codification was so perfectly unintelligible to the ordinary member of Parliament that he let it pass without attempting to interfere with it.




METHODS Or LEGISLATION. LOPD JUSTICE FLETCHER Moulton took the chair on Wednesday at a lecture at the University College on this subject.

Sir Courtenay Ilbert (Clerk to the House of Commons) said he should deal with the law which was enacted by the Legislature, including the rules made by persons or bodies deriving their authority from the Legislature, but not what was sometimes called judge-made law-that was to say, the interpretation, deveiopment, and application of common law or enacted law. It was with the making, not the interpretation, of enacted law that he was con(erned. In every self-governing dominion of the Empire the instrument of constitution always conidined a provision that the procedure of the Legislature was, in the absence of special direction, to be in accordance with Parliamentary rule, and both the constitution and procedure of all modern Legislatures, with a very few exceptions, might be traced back to a single prototype--the Parliament which sits at Westminster. There were four stages through which a legislative measure had to pass before it took effect as law--namely, (1) the preparation of the measure; (2) its passage through the Legislature; (3) its formal enactment; (4) its publication. On the enormous importance of having the draft of a measure carefully prepared before its submission to a popular Legislature it was unnecessary to dwell. Yet this importance was still imperfectly realised in some civilised countries. In our own country the office of the Parliamentary counsel, which responsible for the preparation of Government Bills, dated from 1863. The work of the office was exceptionally difficult and laborious; it was done under tiring and exhausting conditions, and, although it was subjected to stringent criticism, it had, in the opinion of competent judges, accomplished much in improving the form of our statute law. The office was responsible only for Government Bills and for such alterations in Bills introduced by private members as were required by the Government as conditions for the grant of facilities in their passage through the Legislature. In the number of public Bills which succeeded in becoming law the proportion of private members' Bills was very small, and there were some who regretted the small and probably decreasing share taken by the private member in the initiation of measures which were destined to find their place on the statute-book. he did not share that regret. It was for the interest of the public that the laws by which they were to be governed should be carefully prepared, and, though no one would think of proposing to reserve to the Government the right of introducing Bills, yet it would be impossible to place at the disposal of every private member the services of the trained and skilled staff who assist the Government in the preparation of their Bills. But the Bills introduced by private members were of great value in suggesting and pressing upon the attention of the Legislature and the Government proposals for the improvement of the law, and they frequently supplied materials which formed the basis of useful legislation. A decisive step in the history of English legislation was the transition from legislation on petition to legislation by Bill. In the earliest ages of Parliament, the House of Commons was not a legislating body, but a petitioning body. Having traced the steps by which the House of Commons gradually arrived at its present form of procedure, he said that the system of standing committees had, on the whole, worked well, and, as a rule, the proceedings had been quiet and businesslike. Common sense and the practice of companies and other associations suggested that the details of a draft could be better discussed in a small than in a large body, and room could usually be found on every standing committee for every member who was qualified by special interest or knowledge to take part in its proceedings. But when the discussions raised important questions of general principle, as they sometimes did, there was a real difficulty in excluding
