At a meeting of the members of the Institute of Bankers held on the 1st inst., Mr. Robert Williams, M.P., delivered his inaugural address as president. In the course of it he referred to the Land Transfer Act, 1897, which, he said, might perhaps be of the greatest impcrtancetothem as bankers, modifying very considerably their present practice as to equitable mortgage by deposit of title deeds.
The members of the South-Eastern Circuit entertained Mr. Justice Channell at a congratulatory dinner at the Trocadero Restaurant on Tuesday last, in celebration of his recent elevation to the bench.

At the Mansion-house police-court on the 3rd inst., says the Times, Percy Haigh Senior was summoned for unlawfully and falsely pretending on two occasions that he was duly qualified to act as a solicitor. Mr. U. O. Humphreys, solicitor, prosecuted on behalf of the Incorporated Law Society ; Mr. G. L. Bannerman, barrister, appeared for the defendant. Mr. Humphreys said that in March, 1897, Mr. Hammond, a boot manufacturer at Norwich, advertised for a promoter to convert his wife's businsss into a limited company. He received a reply from a Mr. Somerville. At Easter Mr. Somerville visited Norwich and arranged that he would form the business into a limited company, and later on he wrote asking Mr. Hammond to come to the oflice of his solicitor, Mr. Senior, in Salters’-hall-court, Cannon-street. Mr. Hammond went there, and Mr. Somerville introduced the defendant to him as his solicitor. An agreement w is executed by Mr. Somerville, and it was witnessed by the defendant. Ii witnessing the agreement the defendant described himself as a solicitor. Suosequently Mr. Hammond found that the defendant was not a solicitor, as he had been struck oif the rolls. Mr. Hammond thereupon communicated with the Incorporated Law Society, and these proceedings were taken. The defendant was bankrupt in 1892. The defendant was admitted a solicitor in 1886. He was practising at Nottingham, and the last certificate which he had expired in November, 1891. He was suspended for four years from practice in April,‘ 1893, and he was struck off the rolls in December, 1894, consequent upon a conviction at Wolverhampton for offences under the Bankruptcy Act and for obtaining 15,000 cigars by false pretenees, he being sentenced to fifteen months’ im risenment. On the 27th of July there was registered a company called the Atlas Exploration Co. (Limited), the nominal capital of which was £10,000. The defendant signed his name as a shareholder in the company, and described himself as a solicitor. Mr. Bannerman, for the defendant, urged that the offence was merely a technical one, and that the justice of the case would be met by inflicting a nominal penalty only. The Lord Mayor said he should fine the defendant £5 for each offence, with £5 5s. costs on the first and £3 3s. costs on the second.
