The judicial business of the House of Lords will be resumed on Friday, the 21st inst., when the appeal oases of The Earl of Zetland v. Eislop aad Gallomay v. Turner will be in the paper for hearing.

The following, says the Central Law Journal, is a verbatim copy of a petition recently presented to the Circuit Court in Arkansas for leave to practice before justices of the peace:—"The State of Arkansas, Countey to all Whom it may conourn We the under A sigeu Names Do say that Joseph g Herman Has got A Wright to Practice law in the Justices of the Peacess C >uit Without Licenes When the Person imploWing him is Willing to Resk him as an agent Either Asking questions or Pleading. Not as A laWyer But an agent and We think that He Will Be in the Limits of the Law."

The Hindoo-English author of a "Memoir of the late Honourable Justice Onoocool Chunder Mookerjee" thus describes the merits of the subject of the memoir before his elevation to the bench :—" Since he joined the native bar down ad Jinem of his career as a pleader, be had won an uniform way of pleading. He made no gairish of words, never made his sentences long, when be could express his thoughts in small ones. Never he countercbanged strong words with the pleaders or barristers of the other party. In defeating or conducting a case his temper was never incalescent and hazy. He well understood the interest of his client, and never ceased to tussle for it until he was flushed with succors, or until the shafts of his arguments made his quiver void. He was never seen to illude or trespass npon the time of court with fiddle-faddle arguments to prove bis wits going a.wool-gathering, bat what he said was nude truth, based upon jus civile, lex non tcripta, lex tcripta, &c, and relative to his case and in homogenity to the subject-matter he discussed, and always true to the points he argued. He made no quotation having no bearing whatever to his case, but cited such Acts, clauses, and precedents that have a direct affinity to bis case, or the subject-matter of his argument. By-the-bye, I should not here omit to mention that he had one peculiarity in bis pleading which I have observed very minutely. Having first expounded before the court the anatomy of his case, he then launobed out on the relative position of his client with that of the other, pointing out tbe /juidproquo or bolstering up the decision of the lower conrt with his sapience and legal aonmen and cognoscence, waiting with quietude to see which side tbe court takes in favourable consideration, knuckling to the arguments of the court, and then inducing it gradually to his favour, giving thereby no offence to the court."

To Her Majesty, the Lord Chancellor, the Whole of the Judicial Bcnob, Corporation of London, 4c.






LONDON, APRIL 22, 1882.


The Cause List of the Court of Appeal contains 48 appeals from the Chancery Division and 120 from the Queen's Bench Division, also 10 from the Probate, Divorce, and Admiralty Division, and 10 Bankruptcy appeals—making, in all, 188 appeals. Last sittings there were only 155 appeals in the list, and a year ago 151.

The Cause List of the Chancery Division for the Easter Sittings, which will be found in another column, contains 65 causes before Vice-Chancellor Bacon; 139 before Vice-Chancellor Hall, 60 of which are witnesses causes; 122 before Mr. Justice Fry, 84 of which are with witnesses; 114 before Mr. Justice Kay, and 178 before Mr. Justice Chitty, 66 of which arc with witnesses. These numbers make a total of 618. A year ago there were only 429, and at the commencement of the last sittings only 524.

A Return made pursuant to certain Acts confirms what we have always maintained—that the administration of civil justice in this country is self-supporting. It appears that in the year ending the 31st of March, 1881, the total receipts under the heads of the High Court of Justice, the Court of Appeal, the Court of Bankruptcy, and the Land Registry, were £619,393 18s. 8d. The total payments during that period were £626,470 2s. 3d.; but as these payments include, not only the salaries of the existing judges, which are legitimate charges, but the pensions of retired judges and Lord Chancellors (which far exceeded the deficiency), it will be seen that the fees paid by litigants cover the cost of the actual judicial and administrative power required to determine their causes.

An American Legal Contemporary recently took occasion to remark that Maclean's trial would show whether such matters could be managed better in England than they are in the United States. The result, we think, will not be unfavourable to our institutions. A comparison with Guiteau's case would be obviously unfair, for neither prisoner nor counsel in the recent trial resembled the abnormal specimens brought to light in the American case; but we apprehend that the proceedings at Reading will bear comparison with the best conducted trial across the Atlantic. And, what is more important, they contrast very favourably with too many of our recent criminal investigations. Ever since the trial of the Claimant there has been a tendency to relax the limits within which cases of public importance should be tried. We refuse to believe that in any case it can be necessary or expedient to multiply words and lengthen speeches and summings-up over many days and weeks, and we rejoice that in the trial of Maclean every one concerned seems to have set his face against this practice. The trial was fair, dignified, short, and unsensational. Higher praise can hardly be given, and let us hope that in the next great criminal investigation, where the circumstances may be less favourable to their manifestation, these characteristics will equally appear.

A Wortiiy Contemporary, whose compassionate soul was recently afflicted by the sad fate of the Shanghai Bar, about to be " removed" by the operations of that dreadful " double-hopper dredge," last week turned his attention to the departed Jumbo, and placed on record his opinion that " a creature of Jumbo's tractable

habits and disposition could fairly be considered a 'domestic animal' within the meaning of the statutes 12 & 13 Vict. c. 92, and 17 & 18 Vict. c. 60." This is a very singular proposition. If all "creatures" of "tractable habits and disposition" are domestic, then the cobras in the Zoological Gardens, which everyone who knows anything of snake-charming will admit to be of " tractable habits and disposition," are domestic. According to the same standard, the sea-lion is singularly domestic, and probably the domesticity of the deceased whale at the Aquarium could also be satisfactorily established. We forbear to discuss the question of Jumbo's tractable habits and disposition, as developed during his attacks of "must," because as the lamented animal has passed out of the region in which English statutes are operative, it is perhaps a little late in the day to vex ourselves with the question whether they apply to him.

An Application in an action made this week to Vice-Chancellor Hall to restrain the employment by the defendants of a solicitor who had been employed by the plaintiff to conduct a previous action against the defendants resulted in a rather important declaration of the rule on this subject. The doctrine that a solicitor who has acted for one party in an action will, in certain cases, be restrained from acting for the opposite party is as old as Earl Cholmondelcy v. Lord Clinton (19 Ves. 261). In that case, a firm of solicitors who had acted for Lord Clinton dissolved partnership, one of the terms of dissolution being that one of them, S., should, and the other, M., should not, continue to be Lord Clinton's legal adviser. M. became solicitor for Earl Cholmondeley for conducting certain suits against Lord Clinton. and a motion was made for an injunction to restrain Earl CholMondeley from employiug him for that purpose. Lord Eldon, as the point was new, consulted all the judges, and subsequently "declared the unanimous opinion of all the judges and the Barons of the Exchequer, the Master of the Rolls, and the Vice-Chancellor, agreeing with his own, that a solicitor is not at liberty to act in the manner proposed by M., and that, having thus left the cause, he is not in the situation of a solicitor discharged by the client, and, therefore, cannot become the solicitor for the other party in the cause." These observations have led to the impression that the rule does not apply to a solicitor who is discharged by his client, except for misconduct; and in Parratt v. Parratt (2 De G. & Sm. 262) Vice-Chancellor Kjtioht Bkuce lent some sanction to this notion by saying that in Davies v. Clourjh the solicitor had virtually discharged himself, while in the c;;sc before him the client had discharged the solicitor. In the case before Vice-Chanccllor Hall this contention was raised, but the learned judge said that the principle was that a solicitor should not act contrary to his duty, "and it was essential to the interests of mankind that the jurisdiction should be extended to a case such as the present." We think no one will be found to contend that this decision is wrong; and the rule it lays down is simple and easily applied. It is that whenever a solicitor who has either discharged himself or been discharged by a client in any proceeding, is in possession of knowledge the communication of which to the other parties to such proceeding or to proceedings connected with it may unfairly prejudice his former client, he is debarred from acting for such other parties. And to this we may add Lord Eldon's suggestion "in doubtfid cases abstain " is a good rule for the regulation of conduct.

Lord Cairns' Conveyancing Bill has been re-issued with an explanatory memorandum attached, in whicli wc find the following remarks on clause 2, which proposes to protect solicitors and trustees dispensing partially with the investigation of title :—
