annua] general meeting by adding the words "and the five of such ten who have been Ion Rest in office shall not be eligible for re-flection for twelve months.'' He referred to a similar motion which had been brought forward in 1873 at a special meeting and carried, but which had bem lost at a special meetng called for the purpose of confirming it. when the council produced an opinion of counsel that it was vltrd vim. He could not see how that could be, and contended that the society would pain considerably by the fresh blood which would be hroueht into the council if his motion were adopted. Mr. Macarthtjr seconded the motion.
Mr. Finch said the motion sought to deprive the members, the electoral body, of their right to elect thos? gentlemen whom they might feel to be the most efficient members of the council. If tbey had such a rule they could not have the best mm on the council. Many men would not care to take office with a halter ronnd their necks, knowing that after the experience of years required to make a member of the council, instead of getting nearer to the honour of being president, they were to be told they must go.
Mr. D. T. Miller having spoken in favour of the motion, it was put to the meeting and negatived by a large majority.
Mr. Finch introduced a motion, ot which he had given notice, requesting the council to " take all such rea-onable and proper steps «s may be necessary for having restored to the Offioial Lhw Liat the star or asterisk that, from the year 1822 continuously to the year 1881, has distinguished the names of members of the society appearing therein." He observed that had the suggestion for depriving the membrrs of the star come from someone outside toe society it would have been looked upon as a piece of vanda'iem. The council had, no doubt, been actuated by the highest motives, hut they bad determined no longer to pay the small fee required by the publishers of the Law List, or take what little trouble was necessary in order that the star might be affixed to the names of members »s had hitherto been the case. It was true the names of the members appeared in the society's calendar, but the Official Law List was a document of considerable age, and one to which everybody referred who wanted to know anything about a solicitor. The calendar was issued by a private body as far as it was concerned, and could never come into competition with the Law List. This change had been made silently and without any application to the members that their views might be made known.
Mr. Rcbenbtein seconded the motion. He thought the society Bhould acquire the right to print the Official Law List.
Mr. Walters, in the unavoidable absence of Mr. Luke, the chairman of the finance commi'teee, who had been most concerned in the alteration, was afraid he mwBt range himself in opposition to Mr. Finch on this occasion. Mr. Finch had held up the Liw Lift to admiration as a piece of perfection, but he (Mr. "Walters) held in bis band a list of the errors of the last Law List in which the asterisk appeared. These errors amounted to no less than 102 amongst the country members of the society, and 82 amongst the London members, making a total of 184. They were omissions of the asterisk in almost every case. That was the result of an accurate list of the members being furnished to the publishers. The publishers, when these errors were pointed out, at first said they hsd not been furnished with an accurate list. He (Mr. Walters) had seen 'he very list that was sent to them, which was accurate and complete, and what showed they were in error was the fact that they had never been paid their usnal £10 10s. for the la»t publication. The arrangement as to the payment of £10 10s. dated from 1879. Prior to that time the publishers bad sent the proof sheets for correction, and very frequently they were stnt too late for correction without reprinting, and he thought that on the last occasion it had cost £120 to reprint the proof sheets which were put forward with so many errors. Under these circumstances the arrangement of 1879 was come to ; under it the secretary furnished them with the necessary lis's. When the publication of the calendar was decided upon, tl e calendar committee came to the conclusion, in view of the great inaccuracy of the Law List in this respect, that the members should appeir in the society's own official list. The whole of the Law List was not official; the only official list of members of the society was in the society's calendar. The asterisk in the Law List was simply an arrangement made by rhe cooncil with the publishers as tradesmen, and if there was a demand for the asterisk to appear the publishers would find it worth their while to put it in themselves. Why should the society pay the £10 10s. a year, and employ the society's own staff in ineff. ctually endeavouring to perfect their publication, wl en tbey could take it themselves from the society's calendar to print it? The calendar appeared in February, the Law List in April, and the publishers were welcome to every information tbey could g<t from the calendar. The calendar was complete informations as regarded everything connected with the society, and the council m'glt perhaps extend it so as to include a list of all solicitors taking out their certificites. It would possess the ariva'ita^e of the information being given in February instead of waiting till April. There were oneor two difficulties in the way of this, but he hoped the council would be able 10 ove rcome them. It would not of course be evidencj by Act of Parliament, but in course of time it might become the efficial calendar of solicitors. Why should it not? The society bad the offioial custody of the roll of solicitors. Tbey were the registrar of solicitors. Why should not they publish the official list of solicitors? If they restored the asterisk to the Law List they would be rather militating against the possibility of anything of the kind. Suppose the meeting passed a resolution that the asteri-k should ho restored, the publishers would see that resolution and say to the council. "Now you have to do this, our price is £500." Mr. Finch shruld he prepared to tell the society that the publishers would do it on the old terms. The council had put an end to it because they had thought the work was very imper'eotly done, and they thought it het'er they should have their own official list. Toe effect of publishing the list in the calendar, he believed, though he could not say positively, ban been to largely increase tne number of members of the society. The increase in the number o( members bad been largely augmented, and during the first half of the present year the number had reached 234. It bad been
suggested that the sense of the general body of members should hsve been taken on the subject, but he thought that to a certain extent the members of the council must be trusted. The members of the council had no strong views upon the subject of the change, and if the society, as a society, were de-irons of having the asterisk restored, the oouneil wonld, of conrse, sue the measure their best consideration. His own judgment, which he thought wai shared in by bis colleagues, was that they had better leave it where it was.
Mr. Parker thought it was simply a question of £10 10s., the payment of which he believed the meeting would most heartily authorize. When they wanted to know something of a solicitor with whom they were not acqnainted, the first thing they did was to turn to the Law LUt and see whether he had the asterisk or not ; and now Mr. Walters was claiming that tbey should refer to a book of two years' standing instead of one of forty. The Law L st was used by everybody, whether members of the profession or not, whilst the calendar only went to the members of the society.
Mr. Finch, in reply, understood that by reason of the action of the council the asterisk could not be restored under a cost of thirty guineas, bnt they were in the hands of a highly-respectable firm, and they might rely upon their doing it without attempting to extort £500 It could be restored by thirty guineas, and in his opinion it was worth 300 guineas.
The motion was carried, with scarcely a diss, ntient, amidst applanse.
Mr. Kimber moved "That, as the tendency of recent and prospective legislation is to extend the jurisdiction of the county courts, the whole question of their practice and procedure be referred to a committee of this society, to consider it and report to the council thereon." He urged that the more the question was investigated the more the public would be opposed to tbe handing over of any more business to the county courts as at present constituted. Up to a certain figure the county courts had been productive of great public good, but when they had imposed upon them the administration of Admiralty, Equity, and Bankruptcy business, and now tbe Employers Liability Act, the burden was greater than they could bear.
Mr. D, T. Miller seconded the motion.
Mr. O. A. Ckowder, as a member of the Legal Procedure Committee, observed that the committee were of opinion that this measure ought to be considered, but very few of tbe members of the oomsnittee had practical acquaintance with county court work, and they thought the subject hsd better be relegated to another committee, who might be better able to deal with it. Tbey were certainly of opinion that it was a subjeot wbioh ought to be dieenssed and settled.
Mr. S. Dat would juBt remind the oouneil that there was a sooiety called the County Court Society, and that would be a good list from wbioh to lake the names for the new committee.
Mr. Kimber asked whether that was not a sooiety of officials.
Mr. Dat replied in tbe affirmative, but remarked that because a solicitor wan an offioial he should not be tabooed from exeroising his knowledge.
Mr. H. E. Gribblb thought the present not a very appropriate time to form the committee when there was a chance of extra work being thrown on the county courts. He submitted that it should be postponed until tbey knew what the result of the new rules would be, and moved an amendment accordingly.
Mr. Fiayward seconded the amendment.
Mr. Richardson asked those gentlemen who did not praotise in the oounty oourts to abstain from voting on a measure in which they had little or no interest. Thoee of them who practised in the county conns knew what great need there was for reform.
The amendment was negatived, and the motion was then put and carried.
A committee was formed of the following gentlemen, with power to add to their number:—Mr. F. K. Munton, Mr. Whitehead, Mr. Robert*, Mr. J. E. Fox, Mr. Rubeostein, Mr. E. Kimber, Mr. H. H. Riohardson, Mr. Prondfoor, Mr. J. Mote, and Mr. R. J. Maoarthur.
Mr. Francis Miller, looking at the hour which had been reached, by leave withdrew the motion of whioh he bad given notioe for the passing of a new bye-law, as follows, "That a general meeting of the society shall be held at such time and plaoe in tbe month of January or February as the council shall appoint," remarking that he wonld again bring it forward at tbe next annual meeting.
The following notice of motion in the name of Mr. O. Ford stood on tbe paper, but upon the Chairman oallirg npon Mr. Ford no answer was returned :—''That tbe supplemental report of the Legal Prooedure Committee of the sooiety, as appointed by the sooiety on tbe 18th November, 1881, be printed and circulated among members of the sooiety."
Mr. Haeorbaves moved " That the administration of justice requires the abolition of the Long Vacation." He looked npon tbe Long Vacation as »n abuse of justice, and it was a great pity that any civilised country shonld close the temples of juBtioe, for that was practically what it meant, for three months out of tbe twelve.
Mr. D. J. Miller seconded the motion.
The Chairman remarked that he would not again sit as president, but he might say for himself that, if the motion were carried, and it were bis doty to make any such representation to tbe Lord Chancellor, be sbonld do it with great alarm. In tbe first place, he was probably aware of the decision to wbioh tbe Legal Procedure Committee had come, and any such resolution to have any weight onght to be passed at a much larger meeting than tbe present.
Mr. Pennington agreed with the mover of the resolution in much that he bad said, but thought he would do mischief if he pressed it. The Legs' Procedure Committee bad made a report on the subject, whioh report bad been unanimously adopted by the sooiety, and he thought tbey sbonld wait and see the result of the report before passing any resolution. He therefore ventured to appeal to Mr. Hargreaves to withdraw the motion.
Mr. Ha KgreaVks, by leave, withdrew the motion.
The motion for the adoption of the report was then carried unanimously.
Mr. Hargreaves proposed a vote of thanks to the president and oonno il, the secretary, onder-seoretary, librarian, and the rest of the sooiety's stiff for their able condaot of the affairs of the institution during the past year.
Th 3 motion was carried unanimously.
Mr. Finch proposed, and Mr. Rickman seconded, a vote of thanks to the ohairman, which was nnanimonsly adopted. The Chairman briefly returned thanks, and the proceedings terminated.
