This was a motion by plaintiffs for foreclosure absolute. The property consisted of mills, and the plaintifis, who were mortgagees in possession, had provided working power. In July, 1883, judgment was given for an account of what was due on the security, for rents and profits, and for expenses of carrying on the mills, including working power. By the certificate, made in August, 1886, a large sum was found due to the plaintiffs, but since that time and before the day, in February, 1887, fixed for redemption, a considerable sum had accrued in respect of rents, but an aflidavit by the plaintiffs was produced showing that at the same time a larger sum than what had accrued for rents had been expended by the plaintiffs for necessary repairs and outgoings. The defendants did not appear.

The _quest_ion in this case was, whether the pendency of an action by originating summons to determine certain questions arising under the _will of a testator had the effect of enlarging the time within which he had,_ by his will, directed that his next of kin must establish their title to his estate. The testator gave his i-esiduary_estate unto such person or persons who should within n_ year from his_death establish his or her or their right or title thereto, either as‘ his heir-at-law or next of kin according to the statute for the distribution of the personal estates of intestates, and in default thereof, and in case of his making no subsequent disposition of his residuary "late-116 gave the same equally between the plaintifi and his two erecutors. Within a short time after the testator's death this action was Oizlpinenoed, and inquiries were directed to ascertain who were the next Z) tan and heir. As there turned out to be no real estate, the inquiry as

e heir was dropped. Several claims were carried in by persons who soughttoestablish their title as next of kin, but they failed to do M;-H Ultimately so_u-is persons named B. proved that they were the next ‘i lli but they did not do so within the year after the testator's death.

Tofquny Race Course Co." was accordingly incorporated, one of its objects, as stated in the memorandum, being to acquire all the estate, right, title, and interest of the six lessees in the land leased to them. An assignment was prepared and executed by five of the lessees, but the defendant refused to execute, and set up the Statute of Frauds. This was an action by the lessees (other than Webb) and the company claiming an order that he should join in executing ii proper assignment.

KBKBWICH, J , said the question was whether the plaintiffs were entitled to specific performance against the defendant, and to have the assignment of certain property executed. The most important clause in the minute was the one “to take an assignment of the same lease, and that the necessary steps be at once taken to carry out the above." At that time there was no company in existence, and so it could not be bound. What did the words “necessary steps to carry out the above " mean. They formed and registered a company, which was of the character described in the minute. Everything had been done except taking an assignment. But there was nothing about the lessees assigning in the minute. His lordship could not see in the minute anything more than an agreement that the company should take an assignment. He could find no contract to assign sufificient to satisfy the statute, and judgment would therefore be for the defendant.—Cousssi., Warminyton, Q,.C., and Pate-Lee; Barber, Q.C., and Badaook.

The following are extracts from the report :—

Provincial Sittings Bill. —Early in January last your committee arranged a conference with the members of Parliament for this district on tho subject of this Bill. The conference was well attended, and the Bill having been fully discussed, the members present promised their support, and urged the immediate introduction of the Bill. At this conference your committee had the valuable assistance of adeputation from the Liverpool Law Society. The Bill was therefore again introduced into the House of Commons by Mr. Whitley, M.P., and your committee presented ii. petition in support, and requested the members of the district, the municipal corporations, the Manchester Chamber of Commerce, and other commercial bodies, to again support the Bill. A deputation of your association and of the Liverpool Law Society waited, on the llth of March, 1886, on the Lord Chancellor (Lord Herscliell), who stated that he was fully aware of the importance of giving additional facilities for the administration of justice in Lancashire, but suggested to the deputation that much might be done by new rules and orders towards carrying out their views, and promisedto take into his consideration any proposals for such orders which the presidents of the two societies might submit to him. A deputation also waited on the Attorney-General (Sir Chas. Russell) in the month of April, to urge upon him the desirableness of the Government supporting Mr. \Vhitley's Bill. The Attorney-General expressed himself favourable to the views of the deputation. In compliance with the Lord Chancellor's suggestion, your association and the Liverpool Law Society prepared draft orders which they considered would give to Lancashire suitors many of the facilities which are so pressingly required, and forwarded them to his lordship, with an explanatory letter. These were not adopted in their entirety, but the new rules as to chancery procedure, mentioned in the next paragraph, are the result of the action thus taken. The state of business in the House of Commons prevented any progress being made with the Provincial Sittings Bill.

Chancery P/00£dlH'¢.—Ill July last a new rule of the Supreme Court was issued, amending rule 22a of October, 1884, and providing for_special sittings by one of the judges of the High Court m Lancashire twice in a year, for the trial of witness causes, on condition that ten such causes were set down for trial. In December last new rules of the Supreme Court as to chamber work were issued, which will materially tend to facilitate the local prosecution of chancery matters. These new rules do not, in the opinion of your committee, secure all the local facilities that are desirable, still, so far i-is they go, they will render important benefits to Laucashire suitors and to the profession.

Claims for Crown De¢ties.—Yo\1t committee resolved to support Mr. Gregory's resolution, that a limitation in point of time should be applicable to liabilities for duties to the Crown, and the Parliamentary representatives of the city and district were urged to support the resolu

tion. _

Solicitors’ Remuneration Act and Orders.—_-Yoilticommittee have requested the Incorporated Law Society of the United l\lllgdOII| to obtain an early decision as to whether a payment to an auctioneer as a fee for offering a lot (as in Manchester), instead of s. commission, deprives a gendgrg solicitor of a commission for conductmg the sale, and they un era n

that the London society are prepared to obtain such a decision on an appropriate case being presented.

.Bankruph-y—I’n'mte .1)-ran;/¢mmls.—Your committee having considered the subject of arrangements with creditors, was of opinion that legislative steps ought to be taken to provide for the registration of private arrangements, so as to make them binding upon all creditors, if assented to by a large majority in number and value; but that compulsory registration without the power to bind such minorities, or in cases where all the creditors are agreed, would not be ex edient. A joint deputation of your association and of the Liverpool) Law Society and the Manchester Chamber of Commerce, accompanied by the Mayor of Manchester and several of the members for the district, waited on Mr. Mundella, the President of the Board of Trade, and urged upon him the necessity of obtainin legislative sanction for such registration, but his views were imfavourable to the wishes of the deputation.

The Jllancluster and Sa{/‘ord- County 0aurt|.—Yoiir committee, in conjunction with other public bodies, presented a memorial to the Lord Chancellor in favour of the amalgamation of these county courts. Ultimately, the districts of Hulme and Cheetham have been reunited to the county court holden at Manchester.

Bills qf Sale Avt.—Your committee placed themselves in communication with the Attorney-General and the Incorporated Law Society, urging that the effect of the decision of the Court of Appeal in Erpnrte Barber on past bills of sale should be corrected by legislation, but they presume it was considered hopeless to attempt to pass a Bill in the last weeks of the session.

Audience of Solicitors before the RaiIu'a_i/ Commissioners.—Your committee wrote to the members of Parliament for the district urging them to support the clause proposed by Mr. Gregory, giving the right of audience to solicitors.

Ratiny of C.'1iefR¢‘!|l-|.—Tl]8 proposal to rate chief and ground rents has occupied the attention of your committee, who considered that such rating would be prejudicial to the interest of this district, and therefore decided if the proposal was pressed to print and circulate statements on the subject, and to present evidence before the Committee of the House of Commons. Arrangements were made through one of our local members for the examination of the witnesses tendered by this committee. The diltSt?:lll1l'.l0!1 of Parliament prevented the committee from continuing its s gs.

BIRMINGHAM INCORPORATED LA'\V SOCIETY.

The annual meeting of the Birmingham Incorporated Law Society was held on the 25th ult. The president, Mr. C. E. Mathews, was in the chair. In moving the adoption of the report, the President remarked that they were in the happy position of having no history, there having been no legislation afiecting the interest of Birmingham or Birmingham solicitors which required them to take action. They had about got used to the Bankruptcy Act, and the only remark he had to make was that, as far as solicitors were concerned, the Act gave them the maximum of trouble with the minimum of remuneration. The work of the committee was sometimes a very thankless task. For instance, when they received the new County Court Rules from the Lord Chancellor, those rules had alreaoy been passed, so that it was too late to protest. Their chief work lay in reading through a quantity of Bills to ascertain how the interests of the public the profession were affected by them; but about 19-20ths of this incipient legislation became abortive. The president commented upon the figures given in the report, which he considered satisfactory, with the exception of those showing a falling oil‘ in the number of student members. In 1877-8 they had sixty law students members of the society, their subscriptions amounting to £30, whereas in 1886 they had only fifteen of these members, bringing in an income of only 1:} guineas. The balance carried forward had been increased from £1l6_ to £130. Five of the debentures raised for the erection of the library had been paid off during the year, and they were now within measurable distance of havin the debt cleared ofi by the yearly savings on the debenture account. The 11,000 borrowings of books seemed to indicate_that the members were seeing the wisdom of trusting to the library instead of buying text-books which soon got out of date. In applying the Horton Pnze Fund the committee had thought it better to give a sum of money to go with the gold medal than to make nu additional fund. They had not a gold medallist this year among their students, but they must remember that last year two students attained the gold medal standard of excellence. The committee would submit to the meeting revised conditions of sale. These had been submitted to three eminent counsel, and the suggestions of these gentlemen had been adopted where they seemed advisable. He congratulated the members on the fact that the first stone of the Birmingham Law Courts was about to be laid. The committee, aided in the Town Council by Mr. Johnson had been agitating the subject for many years, and it was very gratifyihg to find that the object was now about to be accomplished. Both the mam. bers of the profession and the public might congratualate themselves that the first stone was to be laid by the Queen ; and he was sure that there would be no reason for dissatisfaction with the reception which her Majesty would get from the lawyers of the town.

Mr. Wallford seconded the motion.

Mr. Bay ey thou ht that the committee mi ' the interests of thegprofession than examine Bi%ll;tv$li,icli)ld1:£:fngii:;€deid(tg law. He instanced the way in which solicitors were treated in gankru t matters and the new County Court Rules. He thought that the c tions of sale ought to have been revised at least two years a o seei oth t the Act which had rendered the revision necessa we sq" Hg E

[ocr errors]

should be called together oftener to discuss matters of interest to the profession. The way in which they had sat down under the Bankruptcy Regulations, the new County Court Rules, the new Judicature Rules, and other injustices, was most miserable.

Mr. Bullet thought that the small number of student members was due to the fact that there were not so many men going into the law in Birmingham as there were formerly. He hoped that the legal practitioners of the town would get some opportunity of viewing the laying of the foundation-stone of the Law Courts as a body. He agreed with some of the remarks of Mr. O’Connor and Mr. Bayley, but thought that some of the criticisms on the committee were unfounded.

Mr. Johnson appreciated the injustice that had been done to solicitors in the county court practice and bankruptcy practice. That arose from the fact that the new rules were framed by barristers in favour of barristers. As to the Bankruptcy Act, the pendulum of public opinion, and, therefore, of legislation, always swung from oillcialism to private arrangement, and from private arrangement to officialism. Forty years ago Lord Brougham thought he was bringing in the millennium with his ofiicial assignees, but, after fifteen years, these oflicial assignees retired amid the execration of the world, and so would the present ofllcial trustees if they gave them time.

The President said that the matters referred to by Mr. Bayley and Mr. O'Connor had not escaped the attention of the committee, but no notice was taken of the re resentations of provincial societies. It was better to act through the Fnoorporated Law Society, with which they were aiflliated. As to the conditions of sale, the committee had purposely delayed their preparation, having been advised to wait until some decisions had been given that might guide them.

Votes of thanks were passed to the examiners and other officers, and the retiring members of the committee were rc-elected.

The following are extracts from the report of the committee :

l[embers.—Tll8 number of members is now 241, being six more than last year.

The Horton Fund.—The fund, which was raisod for perpetuating the memory of the services rendered to the society by Mr. Thomas Horton, amounts, after the purchase of the silver salver presented to him at our last annual meeting, to £100, and, with his concurrence, arrangements have been made for this amount to be invested in the name of the society in Three per Cent. Consols—the income from time to time to be expended in procuring an additional prize to be presented to the winner of the gold medal. If in any year the gold medal is not won, the income for that year to be added to the Capital Fund.

Reduced Subscription to Young So/i'm'tors.—-It has often been felt that young practitioners starting by themselves are rather heavily handicapped by having to pay the three guincas subscription to the society, and to meet this difliculty the council have resolved “that members of the society, paying in respect of their annual practising certificates, the reduced stamp duty of £3 should, in respect of the year in which any such certificates expire. be charged a subscription of one-half the amount which would have been charged if this regulation had not been made." Members are requested to take notice of this regulation in the payment of tho subscription just become due. _ _

Provmcial Sittinqs BdlI.—The Provincial Sittings Bill was again 1{1l=l’°duccd into the House of Commons, Mr. J. Powell Williams lllldli allowing his name to be ut upon the back of it. A petition in support of the Bill was presented) by this society, but the Bil never reached It! second reading. _

Opminy of the New Law 0ourts.—Your committee feel, in oommon_W1$_11 all the members of the profession, satisfaction at the progress which 15 being made in the steps for the erection of the assize courts. Sevfml members of the committee had the opportunity of inspecting the Phmsi and they venture to hope that the works about to be so happily 1I1"“8‘“' ated on the occasion of the visit of the Queen to Birmingham 111"? b9 speedily carried to a satisfactory conclusion.

GENERAL.

A Parliamentary paper oontains s copy of correspondence between the Treasury and the Irish Government as to the remuneration of the Attorney-General and Solicitor-General for Ireland. The pi-ipet begins with a. letter from Mr. Morley (March 16, 1886), at that time Chief Secretary for Ireland, informing the treasury that the Irish Government desired that the salary of the Attorney-General should be fixed at £5,000 a year for non-contentious business thereby effecting a saving of nearly 533.000. In reply to this the Treasury (April 10) proposed that the then AttorneyGeneral, should receive, in place of all salaries and allowances, £5,000, to be reduced in the case of future holders of the oifice to £4,000 a year, and the Solicitor-General £2,000. These salaries were to cover all busiiless of whatever kind done for any department, except such business as was specially described in the letter as contentious; and the fees for such contentious business are fixed. In May the Irish Government expressed the opinion that £4,000 a year was not suflicient for the post, and when the Treasury still urged the matter, Mr. Morley wrote expressing the surprise and regret of the Lord-Lieutenant that the Lords of the Treasury demurred to the recommendation ; and his excellency felt himself unable to assent to the proposal of the Treasury as being unjust and unfair in dealing with the future of the most important legal appointment under the Irish Government. The Treasury replied that the fees for contentious business would anount to £700 or £1,000 a year, and that the AttorneyGeneral had a right to promotion to the judicial bench, and that they reluctantly found themselves unable to assent to the salary of the olfice

being flxed in the case of future holders at a higher rate than £4,000 a year. The matter had not been settled by August 6, when Mr. Holmes had succeeded Mr. Walker as Attorney-General, and Sir Michael Hicks-Beach urges the claims of Mr. Holmes for the higher salary, while the £300 a year hitherto paid to the Attorney-General’s clerk in lieu of fees was to cease. The Treasury (October 4) assented to the higher salary for Mr. Holmes, but siill adherred to the decision already come to in the case of any future appointment ; and the paper concludes with a letter from the Irish Government refusing to accept the decision and adhering to their former views.
