We Abe Beqttested to draw the attention of practitioners to the desirability of inserting in petitions under the Settled Estates Act, a prayer for directions on what documents notice of the order to be made by the court shall be indorsed, or for directions dispensing with such indorsement. Under section 33 and order 23 it is obligatory on the court to give one or other of these directions.

There Seems To Be some confusion as to the practice relating to the signing of special cases. Under ord. 34, r. 3, every special case must be "signed by the several parties, or their solicitors." This is not always attended to, and even learned judges have supposed that the old practice of signature of special cases by counsel, under 13 & 14 Vict. c. 35, still prevails. It should be borne in mind that the Orders of April, 1880, abolished the stating of special cases under that Act, and tbat all matters relating to such cases arc now governed by the Judicature Acts and order 34 of the Rules of the Supreme Court.

Mr. Green is, it would seem, to have an Act of Parliament passed for his own sole benefit. We doubt, however, if it will do him much good, inasmuch as Parliament can scarcely pass the Act before the 27th of June next, when, in the ordinary course of things, his living will be vacated under section 13 of the Public Worship Regulation Act, 1974. After his living has been vacated, the promoters will scarcely care to keep him in custody, although, strictly speaking, they may do so until he professes obedience to Lord Penzance's orders. Their object will probably be attained by his deprivation. We notice that the Lord Chancellor assumed, in the discussion on Tuesday in the House of Lords, that Mr. Green would not be deprived until the 16th of August next, that being three years from the date of the inhibition issued. But section 13 of the Public Worship Regulation Act, 1874, provides for the vacating of the living of a disobedient clergyman at the end of three years from the issue, not of the inhibition but of the monition, which in Mr. Gbeen's case was issued on the 27th of June, 1879.

The PBoroBAL made in last year's Judicature Bill, to constitute the judges of the High Court journeymen judges of the Court of Appeal met with such strong opposition from the profession that it was withdrawn. Lord Cairns put rather bluntly the leading objection to the proposal when he said that "it assumed that all the judges of first instance were fit to sit in the Court of Appeal. The best men were wanted for that court." This remark may, perhaps, have suggested the modification of the journeyman judge scheme which was announced by the Lord Chancellor in the House of Lords on Thursday week. It is now proposed to give power to the Law Lords and the judges of the Judicial Committee, if willing to do so, to assist in the Court of Appeal. As regards the Law Lords, there can be no doubt that the carrying out of this proposal would add weight to any decisions of the court in which they concurred; but it may be doubted whether the same result would follow from the addition to its bench of ex-Indian judges of the Judicial Committee, who might come to Lincoln's-inn to learn for the first time what was meant by tacking, equity to a settlement, and election. If the proposal were limited to members of the Judicial Committee who had served as judges of first instance in England it would be more reasonable, but at the

same time almost inoperative at present, because, with the exception of Sir R. Collier (and hardly even with that exception), we believe no member of the present Judicial Committee has been a judge of an English court of first instance. But there remains an objection to this system of journeymen judges which we think has hardly been sufficiently considered. A considerable part of the work of both branches of the court relates to technical matters of practice as to which a judge brought from a court in which such matters do not come up for decision is almost useless. Again, it is of the highest importance, as preventing litigation, that the decisions of a Court of Appeal should be uniform; but uniformity of decision is never so well attained as when the members of a court are accustomed to sit together regularly, and so have opportunities of discussing together and settling the rule to be followed in important classes of cases. An eminent law lord, temporarily transferred from his higher sphere to the bench of the Court of Appeal, will not be very likely to acquiesce in prior decisions of that court which may seem to him to be wrong, and if he dissents, what will be the authority of the decision of the other two members of the court?

The Bona Fide Traveller has long been known to the law, but with the single exception of Coulbert v. Troke (L. R. 1 Q. B. D. 1) no legal point has reached the superior courts in connection with him since the passing of the Licensing Act, 1874. It appears now probable that an attempt will be made to draw a legal distinction between a "lodger" and a " bond fide lodger" under the following circumstances :—A publican had orders to provide a " leg of mutton supper," and asked the local superintendent of police to grant him an extension of hours. That official very properly refused, for it is only by the combined powers of the Commissioners of Inland Revenue and a justice of the peace (see 25 k 26 Vict. e. 22, s. 13; 26 & 27 Vict. c. 33, s. 20; 27 Vict. c. 18, s. 5; Licensing Act, 1874, s. 19) that such an extension of hours can be granted. But, said the publican, " If I can't get an extension, I will make them all lodgers," and so he did, and provided them not only with beds and the leg of mutton, but whiskey and playing cards, up to two o'clock in the morning. An information was laid, and the publican sought to defend himself by the provision of the Licensing Act, 1874, s. 10, that " nothing in that Act or in the principal Act [Licensing Act, 1872] contained shall preclude a person licensed to sell any intoxicating liquor to be consumed on the premises from selling such liquors at any time to bond fide travellers or to persons lodging in his house." The magistrates dismissed the summons. The point is rather a difficult one. In the not very dissimilar case of Corbelt v. Haigh (L. R. 5 C. P. D. 50) a publican attempted to convert persons entertained by a guest into "private friends" of his own, just after closing hours; relying on section 30 of the Licensing Act, 1874, which enacts that "no person licensed . . . shall be liable to any penalty for supplying intoxicating liquors after the hours of closing to private friends bond *ide entertained by him at his own expense," but the court held that the exemption did not apply. It is doubtful, however, whether the principle of this case would apply to that of a guest "made a lodger," unless indeed those who partook of the leg of mutton had their beds for nothing. On the other hand, if there was any monev staked in the card playing, the publican would be liable for suffering gaming to be carried on on his premises under section 17 of the Licensing Act, 1874, which section was, in Patten v. Rhymer (29 L. J. M. C. 189), expressly held to apply to a publican allowing his own private friends to play for money.

It Is A Little Difficult at first sight to discover from the reports of Mr. Justice Kay's judgment in the case of Lord Marcus Bcrcsford v. Prince Batthyany the precise ground on which the learned judge refused to grant specific performance of the agreement; and to understand some of the observations ascribed to him in the daily papers. He is reported to have said that "the plaintiff's evidence showed most certainly that on his part there was an unconditional acceptance of the offer, but he had failed to show that he and the defendant were of one mind in the matter." But it would seem that there could be no unconditional acceptance by the plaintiff of the defendant's offer unless the parties were "of one mind in the matter." If the offer unconditionally accepted by the plaintiff was not the real offer made by the defendant, then there was no acceptance of the offer at all. The explanation of the view taken by the court of the transaction seems to be this :— There was first a written offer by the defendant to sell to the plaintiff, the defendant supposing that the plaintiff was acting on behalf of "a distinguished person." When the plaintiff called on the defendant the latter (according to the plaintiff's evidence) asked the plaintiff whether he wanted the property for the "distinguished person," and the plaintiff said that a person who accompanied him was the "distinguished person." Thereupon the defendant changed his mind, and told the plaintiff he could not sell without the consent of certain other persons. The defendant, the learned judge thought, had a right to withdraw his offer at any time before a complete acceptance by the plaintiff, and without any formal or express notice of withdrawal to the plaintiff, provided only he gave the latter to understand that he was no longer in the mind to sell. As regards the latter point, the learned judge based his decision on the remarks of Lord Justice James in Dickinson v. DodJs (L. E. 2 Ch. D. 463), but we venture to think that those remarks must be taken with reference to the facts of the case before the learned Lord Justice. In Dickinson v. Dodds the defendant, after making the offer, had, to the knowledge of the plaintiff, before the latter accepted the offer, actually agreed to sell the property to another person (see p. 473). There appears to be rather a wide difference between the information as to ohange of mind of the offeror conveyed to the offeree by the knowledge that the offeror has since the offer sold the property offered to another person, and by a mere statement in conversation that the offeror cannot sell without the consent of some other persons. This latter statement does not seem to be necessarily equivalent to a statement that he was no longer in the mind to sell.

A Legal System like our own, in which much is of immemorial antiquity, affords peculiar facilities for modern statutes to stumble up against venerable relics of the past. A few days ago Mr. Justice Fky was called upon, in the case of Frampton v. Stephens, to decide, for the first time, what is the effect of a modern dissolution of marriage upon a wife's claim for dower. Mr. and Mrs. Stephens were married in 1859, and though Mrs. Stephens took certain benefits in some of her husband's property under a marriage settlement.'therewas nothingto show that they were intended to be in satisfaction of her claim for dower. The marriage was afterwards dissolved on the wife's petition against the husband, the decree being made absolute in 1875. The ex-husband died in 1878 intestate, without having executed any declaration whatever to deprive his wife of her right to dower. In 1881 she married Mr. Fkampton; and by this action she and her present husband claimed dower in certain fee simple estates of which Stephens had died seised. The claim was, of course, against the heir-at-law of Stephens, who was Mrs. Fkampton's eldest son by her former marriage. These facts being set out in the statement of claim, the defendant demurred; and Mr. Justice Fby last week allowed the demurrer. Here the facts were such as to make the wife's claim as strong as such a claim ever can be; for (1) the divorce took place by no fault of hers; and (2) she had not married again at the time when Stephens died. The subject ought undoubtedly to have been dealt with when the 20 & 21 Vict. c. 85 placed the modern law of divorce upon a totally different footing from the old. Such questions ought not to be left to ancient analogies for their settlement. And it is not certain that the Legislature would deliberately have enacted what Mr. Justice Fky was compelled to lay down as the law. He could hardly have decided otherwise, if there is any weight in the following passage from Lord Coke :—" But it is necessary that

the marriage doe continue, for if that be dissolved, the dower ceaseth, ubi nullum matrivwniutn, ibi nulla dos " (Co. Litt. 32a.). He adds that this doctrine applies only to divorce a vinculo matrimonii; which seems clearly to include the modern dissolution of marriage.

Clause 12 of the Irish Crime Bill, which authorizes the expulsion of aliens, effects this purpose by a re-enactment of 11 & 12 Vict. c. 20, which was itself an adaptation of the Act commonly known as the "Alien Act" (33 Geo. 3, c. 4), passed in 1793, a very severe measure. After providing for the registration of aliens and establishing a very strict passport system, the statute of 1793 (section 15) enacted that aliens not departing the realm, after being ordered so to do by royal proclamation, should be committed to prison, "there to remain without bail or mainprise until he or she should be delivered by due course of law." The next section enacted that every alien lawfully convicted of disobeying the proclamation " should be adjudged to suffer imprisonment for any time not exceeding one month, and, at the expiration of the said term, to depart out of the realm, and, if such alien should be found therein, after such time in such judgment limited, without lawful cause, such alien should, being duly convicted, be transported for life. By the 17th section a Secretary of State had power to grant a warrant " to give in charge to one of his Majesty's messengers, in order to his being conducted out of the kingdom," any alien considered not likely to pay immediate obedience to the proclamation. The Act which is now proposed to re-enact, 11 & 12 Vict. c. 20, was equally direct in its terms, but milder in its punishments, power of bail being given to a judge of any of the superior courts, and the extreme punishment being twelve months' imprisonment. Both Acts were temporary only and do not appear to have been continued. It will be observed that the provisions for expulsion applied only to particular aliens publicly named, but that they applied to all parts of the United Kingdom equally. The new Bill incorporates 11 & 12 Vict. c. 20 (by reference), with the modification that" an order shall not be made directing any alien within Great Britain to depart this realm, except in the case where an order of the Lord-Lieutenant has been made directing an alien in Ireland to depart this realm, but in such case an order may be made in Great Britain respecting such alien." We think the modification unnecessary and likely to cause confusion, and should prefer a bodily incorporation of 11 8c 12 Vict. c. 20 to an incorporation by reference only.

We Piuxt elsewhere a letter signed "B.," which adds another to the many hints tending to show that certain eminent persons, in their haste to swallow the Conveyanciug Act whole, may perhaps have taken a too favourable view of its digestibility. It is true that we do not think this particular matter practically important, but it is highly symptomatic. "B." asks whether certain learned authors of precedent books are right in using the words "in fee simple" in the habendum of a mortgage of freeholds to an incorporated building society, section 51 of the Conveyancing Act being apparently inapplicable to a corporation aggregate. As the life of a corporation is conterminous with its whole existence, and the life of a corporation aggregate is wholly distinct from that of its members, a corporation aggregate may take a (quasi) estate in fee without the use of any words of succession at all. "If lands be given to a dean and chapter they have a fee simple without the word 'successors,' for that the body never dies" (Co. Lit. 94b). But this fact supplies no good reason for inserting in a mortgage of freeholds to an incorporated building society words of limitation which take effect only by force of the Conveyancing Act, and do not seem to have been meant to apply to corporations. It is also noteworthy that one of the works to which our correspondent refers, in a conveyance to a railway company, makes both the conveyance and the habendum "to the said company, their successors and assii/iis.'' AVe have previously observed that a tendency to vacillation between several alternative phrases and methods seems to be rather a feature of the newest fashion in conveyancing.
