THE PRESENT SITTINGS have not commenced auspiciously for bill of sale holders. Last week two important decisions were

given by the Court of Appeal invalidating bills of sale on the 17 usual ground that they were not “in accordance with the form."

In one of them (Hughes v. Little, ante, p. 9) the bill of sale was given by way of indemnity to the grantee on his becoming surety for the grantor, and the decision amounts to this, that inasmuch as in such transactions it is obviously impossible to specify the exact sum which the grantor will become liable to pay to the grantee on the indemnity, or the exact time of payment, the transaction cannot be brought within the four corners of the form, and so is void as a bill of sale. In the other case (Blaiberg v. Beckett, ante,

p. 9) the bill of sale contained a clause that, upon any sale by the The Solicitors' Journal and Reporter. grantee, the purchaser should not be bound to inquire whether

there had been any default by the grantor. This clause was held LONDON, NOVEMBER 6, 1886.

to render the bill of sale void, as not being a clause either for the " maintenance" “ defeasance” of the security. This, we

believe, is not an uncommon provision in bills of sale. The CURRENT TOPICS:

JUSTICE Kar has announced that he will continue the interest charged on such securities. hearing of adjourned summonses during next week, in order to reduce the heavy list as far as possible before taking non-witness actions and further considerations.

SPEAKING of Lord MONKSWELL last week, we mentioned that his name did not appear in PULLING's list of serjeants, though we believed that he was styled a serjeant in the Gazette. The facts

appear to be these: The Gazette of November 7th, 1871, contains WE UNDERSTAND that it is in contemplation to issue a direction the following entry :-"Crown Office, November 7th, 1871. Her that an order giving leave to serve a writ out of the jurisdiction at Majesty has been pleased, by Letters Patent under the Great Seal, a particular place, may also allow the writ to be served within a to constitute and appoint Sir ROBERT PORRETT COLLIER, Knight, prescribed radius of the place named. It was recommended in the Serjeant-at-Law, one of the Justices of the Court of Common Direction of the Senior Registrar (30 SOLICITORS' JOURNAL, 658) on Pleas." So far this appears regular enough. But on turning the subject of time for entering appearance after service out of the to a Gazette of later date—that of December 1st, 1871– jurisdiction, “ to allow a certain area for service."

we find this entry : “Crown Office, November 30th, 1871. Her Majesty has been pleased, by a writ under the Great Seal of the United Kingdom, to call WILLIAM ROBERT GROVE, Esq., one of

" within the words panied by the celebration of other ordinances, by a clergyman a dog is “not under the control of any person in a Dissenting chapel. The canon most in point is the 71st, of the Dogs Act, 1871. The rule laid down by the court appears whereby it is provided that “no minister shall preach or to have been that the question whether a dog is or is not "under administer the Holy Communion in any private house"; and control” is one of fact only to be decided by the magistrate, and

he case most in point appears to be Trebec v. Keith (2 Atk. according to Lord COLERIDGE, the fact that :2 dog is neither muzzled 498), decided in 1742, in which Lord HARDWICKE said that nor led is, “in the absence of very positive evidence to the “there is no pretence for preaching without licence from the contrary,” sufficient to prove that it is not “under control.” The bishop," and that, though it is not necessary "for a minister to other judges appear to have concurred in this view, but Mr. Justice have licence from the bishop for each particular case, the bishop | STEPHEN apparently thought that the fact that a dog is neither may suspend him wholly where he is irregular.” But a place muzzled nor led is conclusive proof that it is not "under control,” like the City Temple could hardly be deemed a " private inasmuch as dogs are “insensible to moral influences”; which house" within the meaning of the 71st canon; and Trebec remark appears, at all events, to be conclusive proof that Mr. v. Keith, like Moysey v. Hillcoat (2 Hagg. 30) and other Justice STEPHEN has never kept a dog. The proper course for the cases in relation to unconsecrated proprietary chapels, was a case future will be for the local authority making an order under the where full services had evidently been conducted. What Mr. Dogs Act to state explicitly in such order that all dogs in public HAWEI8 proposed would, no doubt, have contravened the spirit of places must be either muzzled led, so as to give fair warning to the ecclesiastical law, which (see Act of Uniformity, 14 Car. 2, the public, instead of following the misleading course hitherto c. 4, s. 18, and Act of Uniformity Amendment Act, 1872, 35 & 36 adopted of merely stating that no dogs not under the control of Vict. c. 35, s. 6) forbids preaching in a church without specific any person shall be suffered to be in any public place. antecedent forms of worship; but it is at least questionable whether it would have contravened the letter of any canon or statute.

Should the learned TROLLOPE are, in fact, only “feeling the pulse of the public on judge attempt to introduce any alteration, he must, at the same behalf of the Ancients,” or else towards inducing some public time that he excludes from judgments and orders in Chancery the body to purchase the Inn. As regards the latter object, everyentering of affidavits as read which are not in fact read, provide one must hope, though no one can expect, that it will be accompthat the cost of affidavits bona fide made for the purposes of the lished. But, as regards the prevention of the “trafficking,” the case shall not be forfeited.

By the way, what has become of the Bill is submitted that the practice of the taxing masters is just, and which was introduced by the Attorney-General in 1885 for that the practice of the registrars of entering as read evidence on which, though not in fact read, the order of the court is really associations"?

Suitors need not, however, be procuring this evidence, or, it may be, to throw on his client costs alarmed lest their property should become forfeited to the Crown. which in fact ought to be paid by the opponent ? Lord Justice It is indeed the fact that, under certain circumstances, funds in Fry, in his strictures on the practice, loses sight of the fact that the court not claimed are transferred to the Commissioners for the taxing masters, while refusing to allow for affidavits which are not reduction of the National Debt, but the Consolidated Fund is, by entered in the judgment or order as read, do not, as a matter of Act of Parliament, made liable to replace all such funds when the course, allow the whole cost of every affidavit which is read.
