A CURIOUS point arises on the Order in Council relating to IN THE CASE of Life Interest, ge., Corporation v. Hand-in-Hand, the compulsory provisions of the Land Transfer Act, 1897, a 80, Society (ante, p. 592), Mr. Justice STIRLING gave a decision draft of which has been issued pursuant to section 20 of the which may be technically correct, but which is likely to prove Act. By sub-section 7 of that section the first order is not inconvenient, not merely as to the point decided, but also as to to affect more than one county, and by sub-section 11 of the application of the principle laid down to a wide range the same section the word "county" is to have the same of matters. The learned judge held that on a sale by a meaning as in the Local Government Act, 1888, except that it is mortgagee under the implied power of sale given by the Conto include a county borough. Now, there is no positive defini- voyancing Act, 1881, section 21 (2) of that Act gives protection tion of the word "county " in the Local Government Act, 1888, only to the purchaser who has obtained a conveyance, and leaves but that Act does say, under the heading of definitions (see a purchaser, as between himself and the vendor, free to raise any section 100), that the word, unless inconsistent with the context, objection which can properly be made as between them; what is shall not include county of a city or county of a town. On the protected is the title of the purchaser, not that of the vendor. other hand, the expression“ administrative county" is separately Hence he held that the vendor under such a sale“ is bound to defined to mean the area for which a county council is to be show that the power of sale is exercisable." What proof, it may elected (800 section 100). The "administrative county of be asked, can be given by the mortgagee of some interest London includes the City of London (section 40 (1)). The under the mortgage being “in arrear and unpaid for two "county of London," which consists of what was formerly part months after becoming due," except a statutory declaration of Middlesex, Surrey, and Kent, does not include the City of by himself, which will be objected to as being made by London (section 40 (2)). The "county boroughs" are the an interested party? And why should a purchaser under such boroughs mentioned in the third schedule to the Act, and do not a sale (except a purchaser who wants to get out of his coninclude the City of London, which is a county of a city. Hence tract) desire to fix himself with notice of an irregularity in it seems to us somewhat doubtful whether registration of title the sale, when, if he has no notice and makes no inquiry, he can be made compulsory in the City at all; and also, assuming will be absolutely protected, after conveyance, by section 21 (2) that it can be so made, whether the draft order is not ultra vires against any irregularity? We imagine that, in the case of a because it applies to two "counties"-namely, “the county of willing purchaser, the decision will not alter the practice which London," and "the county of the city.” It should, however, has bitherto prevailed; but in framing conditions of sale, or an be noticed that the term "county" is in the Local Government agreement for sale, by a mortgagee who is selling under the Act, 1888, frequently used for "administrative county” (see, for statutory power of sale, the contingency of an unwilling purinstance, sections 2 and 3), but only where it is clear from the chaser will henceforth have to be provided for, and requisitions context that "administrative county" is intended. The Land as to whether the power of sale is exercisable will have to be Transfer Act, 1897, gives certain powers to the county councils, barred. Consider, however, the extent to which the principle and it is on this account, no doubt, that the authorities have of the decision is likely to extend. The provision of 52 Vict. c. read "county" as meaning "administrative county," so as to i7, s. 12, as to succession duty which became due more than enable them to make the order apply in effect to the adminis- twelve years ago, like section 21 (2) of the Conveyancing Act, trative county of London": see the schedule to the order. 1881, is only in favour of a purchaser; hence, according to the

The machinery of a select committee is suitable solicitor are similarly restricted. Is a purchaser from a tenant where the principle of a Bill is doubtful or where the Bill for life now to require proof of the giving or waiver of such is loaded with details. But whatever doubts may have been notice ? No doubt there are other statutory provisions of a recently evinced as to the expediency of allowing accused similar nature. We cannot help regretting (if we may venture persons to give evidence, the majority by which the second to say so) that a rather broader and more practical way

of reading of the Bill was carried shows that for Parliamentary looking at the matter was not adopted in the recent case. purposes no doubt exists, and from details the Bill is exceptionally free. It is unlikely, indeed, that an inquiry before a select committee would have done more than elicit a repetition of forecasts as to the possible effect of the Bill, of which plenty FROM THE accounts which have been published of the prohave been put forward recently. The neatest point which has ceedings of the Money-lending Committee in connection with the been made is the case quoted by Mr. SEELY, where a man who draft report submitted by the chairman, Mr. T. W. RUSSELL, it is was arrested on a charge of being out at night with a gang of probable that the report as ultimately settled will be & poachere, and was put on his trial, alleged by way of defence sufficiently drastic document. The first recommendation is to that he had been at home all night. He was not able to be that all transactions, whatever be their form, which are in give evidence on his own behalf and his wife could not give substance monos-lending transactions shall be open to complete evidence for him. He was acquitted, but under the Bill the judicial review. The court before which a transaction is brought, result might have been very different. As a matter of fact he whether at the suit of the lender for enforcement or at the suit was not at home on the night in question. He was out of the borrower for relief, should have power to inquire into the poaching, but with another gang. But good though the story whole circumstances, to re-open accounts, to direct an account is, we fear that defences of this kind will have to take their to be taken upon the basis of allowing such a rate of interest chance under the new system as they do under the present. as should appear to be reasonable, and generally to make such The only serious question which has been raised so far in order as the court might think fit. In carrying out these committee of the whole House is whether the Bill should apply principles to their logical conclusion it is necessary to deal with to all offences or only to such as are tried before judges of the the case of bills given by the borrower which have been put in High Court. Practically, however, it would be impossible to circulation by the lender. In the hands of a holder in due introduce into the law of evidence such an anomaly as to make course such bills will have to be paid in full at maturity whatthe competency of the accused person as a witness depend upon ever modification in the transaction may be made by the court the tribunal before which he is being tried. And although in as between the original parties to it. Hence, if more is paid the High Court there may be a better guarantee that the cross-by the borrower than would, had the bills remained in the examination of the prisoner shall be conducted with absolute hands of the lender, have been under the order of the court due fairness, yet there is no reason to doubt the trustworthiness of to him, he will have, according to the committee, to repay magistrates in this respect; while, if the change is in the excess to the borrower. This necessarily follows upon the interest of justice, it should not be excluded from the numerous modification of the bargain, though the inclusion of such & cases which come before courts of summary jurisdiction. The provision in the report shows the thoroughness with which the restriction, accordingly, was rejected by the House, and the committee is working out its scheme for the relief of borrowers. Bill, it it becomes law, will operate in all criminal matters. It is also suggested that the borrower should at any time be
