FREE,

THE DEATH of Baron POLLOCK removes from the bench a SIMPLE,

capable and highly-esteemed judge. His title indicates the length of his service in that office. He was appointed a Baron of the old Court of Exchequer in 1873, and practically he was at work to the last. But, though he was the senior judge-his appointment being three years prior to that of Mr. Justice HAWKINS—he had shown no indication of declining powers, and when it was announced that he was returning from the Essex Assizes on account of indisposition it was not anticipated that his illness would assume a serious aspect. The announcement

on Monday of his death on the previous day came as a painful AND

shock to the many who had loarned to appreciate his sterling

qualities. With his early associations and training it was SECURE.

This result follows from the cases section 85 and upon the Highway Acts there referred to.
