A REPORT issued by the Special Committee of the Incorporated Law Society on Money Lending, which has been adopted by the Council, recommends that the following suggestions be made to the Parliamentary Select Committee : (1) That the minimum limit for bills of sale should be raised from £30 to £50, and the interest be limited to 15 per cent. per annum on bills of sale to secure £100 and under, and 10 per cent. above that amount; (2) the re-enactment of the provisions in the Bills of Sale Act, 1878, that bills of sale should be attested by a solicitor, with a state

Now let us see what the solicitor has to do for this remuneration. This is prescribed by rule 17. He is to prepare and deliver at the registry a written application, signed by him. At the Old Bailey this week a point of law on the construcor his client, in a form given in the first schedule, either accom- tion of the Criminal Law Amendment Act, 1885, was raised, panied by a plan or containing particulars sufficient to enable which is now and of very great importance. Section 3 (2) of the land to be “fully identified” on the ordnance map, and, if that Act provides that any person who “by false pretences or a particular verbal description is desired to be entered on the false representations procures any woman or girl, not being & register, stating such description. He is also to prepare and common prostitute or of known immoral character, to have any deliver at the registry a statutory declaration by the applicant unlawful carnal connection " shall be guilty of a misdemeanour. or his solicitor, in a form contained in the first schedule, stating The prisoner in the case referred to was indicted under this section (where made by the applicant) that the declarant is in possession for having procured a certain woman to have unlawful connection or receipt of the rents and profits of land shown on the plan with himselt by falsely pretending that he was an unmarried annexed as an exhibit or described in the verbal description to man, and that he was able and willing to marry her. A motion be entered on the register, and that he is entitled thereto in fee was made to quash the indictment on the grounds that, on the simple for his own benefit, or otherwise, as the case may be; face of it, no offence was disclosed, and in support of the motion and that the value of the land does not, to the best of his belief, it was argued that “procure " in the section means “induce to exceed a sum to be specified. And if the application is for have connection with some person other than the person proregistration in the name of a nominee, or is made by a pur- curing." In support of the indictment, it was said that the chaser, the consent in writing of the nominee, or of the vendor word merely means to obtain, cause, or bring about, and that or his solicitor, must be prepared by the solicitor and left with the section must be interpreted literally, giving to the word the application. If any deed or document of title is delivered procure" its ordinary meaning. The dictionaries state that with the application, it will be marked with notice of the regis- the word has a secondary signification--that is, to obtain for the tration and the number of the title, and if returned to the purpose of gratifying another's lust, and is allied in meaning applicant, a copy or abstract of it for filing must be prepared by with “pimp" and "pander.” The word "procuress”. has a the solicitor and furnished to the office if required. Then the well-established meaning, and is seldom, it over, used in any entries and plan will have to be settled and the land certificate but this evil sense. It seems highly probable also, when we prepared by the office and considered by the solicitor, and either remember the nature of the agitation out of which the Act grew, handed to the applicant or deposited at the registry. Here we that Parliament had this secondary sense in mind in each place have, in the simplest case, the preparation by the solicitor of an in which the word "procure" is used. On the other hand, secapplication, probably of a plan, and of a statutory declaration, tion 2 (1) provides that any person shall be guilty of a misprobably with a plan exhibited thereto, and of a consent by demeanour who “procuros any girl or woman under twenty-one the vendor. Then there are attendances to deliver these docu- years of age to have unlawful carnal connection ments at the office, attendances to settle same, and attendance with any other person or persons," while in section 3 these last to receive the land certificate. In matters of difficulty no foro- words are omitted. Further, there is a decision of the Court of cast can be made of the time and trouble which may be involved. Crown Cases Reserved in the case of Reg. v. Jones (44 W. R. For this a purchaser's solicitor, on a purchase for £1,000, is to 110; 1896, 1 Q.

There is to be a minimum charge of £3 where the superior court. The decision in Reg. v. Jones on this point is, howvalue is under £100, and of £5 where the value is £100 or over, and it is to be hoped that this important point will be authorita

over, by no means satisfactory, as no counsel appeared in the case, and fractions of £100 under £50 are to be reckoned as £50, fractions of £100 above £50 are to be reckoned as £100. The tively settled. If it becomes generally known that any man who work to be done by the solicitor in the case of registration with seduces a woman under false pretences is liable to be indicted an absolute or qualified title will, we assume, be that now done and to be imprisoned for two years, there will probably be a by the purchaser's solicitor, except preparation of the conveyance, large number of prosecutions for the offence, as it is a very combut plus all the requirements of the rules, which are much too deserve punishment, but at the same time it is to be remem.
