as they, in the execution of their statutory powers and in the exercise of their

discretion, deem fit and proper.” This is unmistakeable as far as A CORRESPONDENT furnishes us this week with what he thinks it goes, but the reference to “any other Act now in force” is is the key to the meaning and object of the strange rule in curious. Is it mere abundans cautela, or was it inserted ex animo Schedule 1. of the Remuneration Order, which provides that in order to deprive the beer dealer when he applies for a renewal the scale for conducting a sale by auction “shall apply only of a protection supposed to be afforded to all applicants for in cases where no commission is paid by the client to an renewal by section 42 of the Licensing Act, 1872, and section 26 auctioneer.In London and the greater part of the country of the Licensing Act, 1874 ? This is a difficult and important the vendor pays the auctioneer's commission, but a practice question ; but, on the whole, we are rather inclined to the opinion prevails in a few counties in the West of England and in some that the present statute applies to renewals as well as to new parts of Wales of charging auctioneer's fees to purchasers. grants.

This practice has quite recently been condemned by the solicitors practising in the cities of Gloucester and Bristol; and in 1878 the Council of the Incorporated Law Society passed a resolution An Act passed during the recent session (45 & 46 Vict. “ placing on record the great objection which they entertain to c. 37) to amend the law respecting the obtaining of corn returnsany conditions of sale under which a purchaser is obliged to which is, mainly, a consolidation, with amendments of no very employ or pay, by commission or otherwise, the vendor's solicitor, great importance, of the Acts 5 & 6 Vict. c. 14, and 27 & 28 Vict. auctioneer, or agent. Yet, according to our correspondent, c. 87, which are repealed-provides that “ weekly returns of the this is the practice which is to be encouraged by rule 11, in purchases of British corn shall be made

If the vendor's solicitor can only towns, not less than one hundred and fifty and not more than two introduce a condition of sale throwing the auctioneer's commis- hundred in number, as may be, from time to time, fixed by her sion on the purchaser, he will be entitled to the scale for conduct- Majesty in Council.” This alteration deserves notice, for the old ing the sale, but not otherwise. There can be no doubt that law, by grouping in a schedule to 5 & 6 Vict. c. 14, the towns under the wording of the rule this will be the result; but we from which returns were to be gathered, was far less elastic, nor, confess it never occurred to us that, for the sake of encouraging it may be observed, were the scheduled towns nearly as many as a practice prevailing only in a limited and diminishing area, a 150 in number. We count seventy-six only in the schedule as printed practice condemned both by solicitors in the country and by the by the Statute Law Revisers. It is now left to the absolute discreCouncil of the Incorporated Law Society, the great mass of tion of a Government office to fix the towns, and that too “from solicitors have been deprived of remuneration for attending at or time to time.” We have searched the Act carefully for pr visions conducting a sale by auction.

A further question may arise under rule 11, as to what of January, 1883), but can find no such provisions. There would is meant by “conducting a sale by auction.” Does a solicitor seem, therefore, to be some little difficulty forthcoming in the "conduct a sale” when an auctioneer is employed, whether such starting of the Act, unless ample provision should be made auctioneer is paid by vendor or purchaser ?
