The reason he wrote the uper was this. There were two schemes placed before the remuneration trfi1unal—the London (South of England) scheme and the Liverpool (North of En land). The latter was accepted, and the London scheme was rejected. If they took the scheme which had been given them, when conducting sales, it appeared to him that it was not open to a moment's argument, but that they must take the custom. If they took the scheme without the custom, it would be like a body without a soul. It would be a dead thing. It had been decided for them. The Legislature had given to them the Liverpool (North of England) scheme. It was not only to the interest of solicitors to conduct sales, but, considering that they were the trustees for the great profession coming after them, it was a much higher platform to take to see one of the things given to them they did not deliberately throw away. They were appointed by Act of Parliament conductors of sales; and it was absolutely essential under_ thcs_o circumstances, when it was probable a most radical system of registration would be introduced, that they should show that they were the men of affairs with regard to the transfer of land. If they took the Liverpool scheme without the Liverpool custom, the thing would be reduced to absolute nonsense. These were his reasons for bringing it forward, and he only wished to say that he was of the same opinion still.

Mr. Annisoiq had very ittle objection to the motion as altered, but he would have strongly objected if it were to go forth in a hasty way that they were all of opinion that they were to destroy the auctioneers of the City of London, and take their business into their own hands. Sales were conducted in London so totally difi‘erently from the way they were conducted in the country, that there was really no parallel between the two cases, and all they, as solicitors, could desire to do was to do that which was in the interest, not altogether of their own pockets, but principally of those of their clients; and one of the things which the committee must set itself most seriously to consider was whether it was, not for the advantage of the solicitor, but for the advantage of the client, that this division of labour in London, which had been allowed to row up, and was now in force, should be put aside for another system. There was also another serious matter. It was not likely the auctioneers of London, as a body, would allow such an inroad to be made on their remuneration without some measure of retaliation; and he thought that the question of the transfer of land was one of serious moment, and those who were very anxious to out down the proper remuneration for all sorts of work would begin to say, “The solicitors and auctioneers of London are quarrellinrr as to how they are to divide the remuneration for the sale of land," and that there was some reason to see whether the remuneration should not be further reduced.

Mr. Foiin suggested that the question was now so important that the report ought to g_o to the general body of members, instead of to the council.

Mr. GRIBBLE, in reply, referring to Mr. Addison's remarks, said that he had never heard a more injurious doctrine started than the suggestion that the society should, before appointing a committee of the society to consider a matter affcctmiithcir own interests, consider whether the auctioneers would retiiluite. _ e trusted that if they did the solicitors were quite strong enough to hold their own. He did not sea that the auctioneers would be affected to any very great extent ; but if they were, the solicitors were certainly strong enough take care of themselves.

The motion was carriedhnaniinously, and the following gentlemen were gppomted a committee, with ppwcr to add to their number:—l\1r. C. E.

atthews (Biruii_ngham), Mr. enion (Liverpool), Mr. Grinham Keen, Mr. T. Bellringer (Liyerpool), Mr. Pennington, Mr. Hewlett (Brighton), Mr. J. Hunter, ll r.

A. _Ilifi'e, Mr. Moberley (Southampton), Mr. Bassott (Rochester), Mr. Melvill Green (Worthing), Mr. H. E. Gribble, and Mr. J . Addison.

Mr. Wnirs asked if the committee were all in favour of the North of England scheme, or were they taken indiscriminately P

Mr. Kass said he had suggested two or three names. He wished the committee to be geographical entircly—a representative for every county, if they pleased.

M.r. Fonn said there were no less than seven members of the council on the committee. It was not satisfactory. It should be more general in connection with ch count

98 y.

l\Ir. Kass said that Mr. Ford would find one or two members of the council were representative men, purposely chosen because they represented country districts.

The following notice stood on the paper 2-“ Mr. J. Coulten will move; ‘ (1) That, at the annual provincial meetings of this society, a printed copv of all the pa ers be handed to every member on application at the place (if meeting or dltiring the meeting. (2) That the papers be taken as read and the whole time of the meeting devoted to their discussion. (3) That the papers be grouped into sections, and the time apportioned to each section in proportion to quantity and importance. (4) ' hat no speaker be allowed more than ten minutes. (5) That the author of ii paper should have the right of reply. (6) That no thanks be given to an y ,,,,,mbe,. or Omcifll of the society.’ ” In moving tho first resolution, he observed that it w h easier to follow a speaker with his paper before one. as muc

gin {pun secoié ed the motion.

r. ELVXLL mas expressed h' If ' . , believing that it would tend to spoil lIrI!11ePI‘0:‘|?l1tJlll!l1lt?l1;]€tI1.)I?s(hdifbi)t the molt‘? He_would prefer a motion passed that no one should bgpennilvtilia it?-hi: I copiesof the papers until after the had been read. It would be better 'fvD committee were appointed to consider whether any im rovements h Id ha made in the metho (of holding the provincial meetingg. The meetiiigls had


one on year after year and had increased in interest, and there was need for fresh regulations. The subjects appeared to be selected in a haphazard way, and it might be better for the council to select a few subjects of special interest. It would be well for a committee to be appointed to consider generally whether there could be any improvements and alterations in the mode of conducting these meetings. He moved that it be referred to a committee.

The PRESIDENT suggested that Mr. Green should give notice of a resolution on the subject.

Mr. Gauss accordingly gave notice for the April meeting.

Mr. COULTON snid he was quite willing that the whole matter should be brought forward in April, so that the subject might be refcrred to a committee, or to the council, as members might desire.

Mr. Hvrrrsn suggested that the word “provincial” should be omitted, and that any resolution should be made to apply to all the general meetings.

THE Cum soars. Mr. FORD asked, according to notice :—“ Is the ‘president of the society, and are the members of the council, unanimously 0 opinion that the Ls_w Club (as constituted after the commencement of my chancery action in

regard tn the old club) is beneficial to the general body of members of the

society ; what is the estimated value of the premises occupied by the club; and what is the present number of members of the club w 0 are members of the society ? ”

Mr. l\[ai.v1i.L Gauss rose to order. He did not think that the members were entitled to get up and ask the president his opinion upon anykparticular question. He begged that the presidsmt woul not answer . Ford’s question. It seemed to him not a proper question, and he did not see why the president should be liable to e cross-examined by any member who chose to do so.

The PIIBSIDINTI I am much obliged to you, Mr. Green, but I have no objection to answering the question. For myself, I may say I was notn member of the club as it was constituted before lllr. Ford's action was brought. It was only after the club was reconstituted that I became a member of it, and I am now a member. I became a member of the club because I thought it was so extremely convenient to me, as I was continually in the Royal Courts adjacent, and I found it so convenient, that not only I join i_t and am still a member, but both my partners joined ill M15 HR Fun members. This is my personal experience. As far as the members of the council are concemed I really do not know, for I have not asked them their opinion ; but, I may say, for the members of the council whom I meet continually at the club, I should judge that, at all events, so far as theym concerned, they find it, in the terms of this inquiry, “beneficial” and ‘_‘ beneficial to the general body of members of the society." As to the estimated value of the remises I cannot answer that, because we have no separate estimate of the value of the premises occupied by the club. The whole building is assessed in one sum for parochial purposes, and we have no mean! of detaching from the general estimate what is the particular value of the club. As to “the present number of members of the club who are momlisfl of the society," I can only answer in this way, that nobody can be ll member of the club who is not a member of the society ; therefoie, all members of the club are necessarily members of the society.

Mi-1. {can : That is not my question. \Vhat is the number of member! 01 the c u F _

The Passiosxr; That is not the question. Your question is, “\\,llB-*1-9 the number of members of the club who are members of the society? lid I say all the members of the club are members of the society.

L . FORD : What number of members are there?

The Pussinssrz That I am not able to answer ; but I have no doubt the secretary of the club will give you the information.

Mr. Foim asked, according to notice: “ Referring to the statements made bl’ Mr. Roscoe, when president of the society, at general meetings held in -lull’! 1885, and January, 1886, as to the Students’ Fee Fund created by section 5 of the Solicitors Act, 1877, what is the sum now available for legal education in connection with that section ? " Mr. Roscoe had said, at the 11199511}! in J U1)’. 1335, that the funds were more than absorbed, and at the m80tlflg 1“ Juiy, 1886, that there were ample funds available. _

. Roscoe said the two thin s were spoken under different cuciimstsnces, but were quite reconcilable. “Flint he had meant to say was that the coullflll declined to allocate the particular expenses with regard to every particulfi-1' item of their audits, such as registration of solicitors, education of arllcled clerks, general purposes, and so on. But he had said that if they were 5° apportioned, and that if they attributed to the articled clerks‘ fund all I-he e ucational expenses, a due proportion of the expenses connected with 31° building, and so on, that the ai-ticled clerks got their full va1iie.fl11<1 1* W“ all absorbed. That was perfectly true l\CCOl'd11l" to the'estiniates the collllcll had made. It might or might not be accurate? but that was what 11° h."d meant. He had meant to say that if the special expenses were taken: winch were for the benefit of ai-ticled clerks, in the wa of lectures, exiimin!1tl°11i and so on, and a due pro ortion of the general, expenses were added, the urticled clerks got their visas of their money, and all their money WMPint upon them. Un the second occasion the subject was as to how the educallvll o articled clerks could be improved. Mr. Phillimore was speaking of large funds, and wanted to o minutely into the question in order to shew ill?" the society ought to spencfmors money. All he (Mr. Roscoe) had said WM that the council did not distribute the funds of the society in the WQY M‘: Phlllinlom PT°P°5'-id; but if he would shew that there were 1111)’ ‘lblects oi education which required the expenditure of mone , there would be n difliculty in finding it.

Mr. Fmm moved the adjournment of the meeting, because he considered the motions which stood in his name so important that they ought not to be discussed at this late hour.

Mr. COLDICOTT seconded the motion.

The Pausiusivr asked to what day the adjournment was for.

Mr. Foao: Sine die.

The motion was agreed to.

The following were the motions in question :—" (1) This meeting, whilst recog-nisiug_ the good intentions of the council in the small grants recently made to LlV6l'p00l and Newcastle-on-Tyne for educational purposes, is of OPIIJIOYI that $11856 Bud 811113181‘ gnmts should be larger in amount, and should be made without the conditions hitherto imposed by the council.” “ (2 That the interests of solicitors and the public require that many public legal appointments, from which solicitors are at present excluded, should be thrown open to them.”

On the motion of T. Southail, seconded by Mr. E. A. Davis, the bi-st_thauks of the society were accorded to Mr. F.

At this meeting Mr. Anthony wainson Allen, registrar of the Worcester County Court, and Mr. Samuel Bromley Garrard, o that city, were elected members of the society.

Tho defendant told him that he did write them at the request of Mr. Bull. It was, the defendant added, Mr. Bull who took out the county oourt summons. The debt had been paid, and he had received 2s. Gd. for his trouble. The defendant said that his name was not in the “ Law List." Moreover he did not act as a solicitor, nor did he pretend to be one. He was a debt collector, and acted in that capacity. He was a poor man. The Alderman imposed a penalty of 40s. and £1 ls. costs.
