WE ABE rnroiiiiuo that a new system of ventilation is in course of being introduced into the Royal Courts, and there are certainly strong symptoms of some disturbing influence at work. In some of the courts showers of dust fall at intervals covering books and papers with a thickly-spread deposit. Perhaps when all this legal dust has been blown away the benefits of the new system may become

apparent.

THE INFORMAL INVITATIONS to the country members of the lncorporated Law Society to attend the Jubilee Festivities were issued last week, and it may he anticipated that the acceptances will be very numerous. The entertainments include, as already mentioned in these columns, a dinner, ball, and theatrical representations at one or more of the London theatres. These are the only attractions ofiicially recognized, but it so happens that the period selected for the festivities is the Ascot week. This is 0116 0f_ those very strange and unaccountable coincidences which do sometimes occur. We feel assured that neither the Council of the Incorporated Law Society nor the Grand Committee can have taken oflicial cognizance of this event, but we think it very hkell" that many of their guests will bear it in mind.

executed it, even if the person executing happened to be a lawyer, and therefore presumably acquainted with the language and eifcot of legal instruments. He-mentioned the late Lord Justice KNIGHT Bnucu as an instance of a lawyer who frequently executed deeds which he did not previously read through. It appears that the Lord Justice openly stated that such was his practice. Though at first sight it looks a little strange that a lawyer should aflix his name to a document without acquainting himself with its contents, it must be remembered that in the great majority of cases deeds are executed in the presence of solicitors whose duty it is to protect the interests of their clients and to state and explain to them the purport and efiect of the deeds, and no doubt the learned Lord Jlisilfie appreciated better than a layman the responsibility of his so icitors.

~_ A smouma CASE has been decided this week aifecting the relations

[graphic]

between the Treasury and a local solicitor employed by the Director of Public Prosecutions. These are governed by the regulations under the Prosecution of Offences Acts, 1879 and 1884, published last year (30 Soucrrons’ JOURNAL, 324), by clause 9 of which it is provided that “ The Director of Public Prosecutions may employ any solicitor to act as his agent in the conduct of a prosecution, and, after examination of the costs and charges of such agent, shall certify the amount which he finds to be reasonable and proper to be paid." In the case in question (Re Park-1'n.son : In the Matter of a Prosecution by the Treasury, Reg. v. Gershon), the facts, as stated in the report, were that a firm of local solicitors was employed to prosecute for a felony and for a misdemeanor under the Debtors Act. In the result the charge of felony was given up, the defendant pleaded guilty to the misdemeanor, and an arrangement was made by which he was to pay £80 to his creditors, and £198 to the solicitors for costs, and was not to be called up for judgment. The costs as against the Treasury were taxed at £101. The question arose as to the surplus. The local solicitors were naturally willing to give the Treasury credit for £101, but claimed to retain the difference, alleging that various expenses, including the payment of witnesses, would have to come out of it. The Treasury relied upon the fact of agency; they had, indeed, nothing to pay under the rule, but, none the less, they contended that the relation of agency, being once constituted, existed for all purposes. Hence it was argued that the local solicitors were bound to account for all money received, and to hand over the balance, after they had been pi operly remunerated, to their principal, the Treasury. It appeared that no objection would be made to paying any costs properly incurred over and above the taxed costs. These would include the expenses of witnesses, who, it seemed, were usually paid_by the local authorities; and possibly the solicitors would be entitled to claim for services in connection with the arrangement with the creditors. The court, in giving judgment for the payment over of the surplus, seemed to be largely influenced by the nature of the transaction, and by the assumed danger of leaving the local solicitor without control in such matters. But, apart from this, it would appear (assuming that all the facts are disclosed in the report) quite sufficient to rest the matter upon the fact of agency.

THERE IS a recent decision of Mr. Justice Cn1'rrv’s in Re Countess of Dudley’; and London and 1Vorth- Western Railzoay Cola Qan{ract (ante, p. 317) which suggests and illustrates more pmissions and oversights in the Settled Land Act, _lB82. The point raised for decision was shortly this: When guardians have been appointed under section 60 to exercise the powers of the Act on behalf of an infant tenant for life, there being no trustees of the settlement, is it necessary also to appoint trustees for the purpose of receiving notice under section 45? Mr. Justice Cnirrr decided that the appointment of trustees was not necessary. He said that if there had been trustees of the settlement for the purposes of the Act it would clearly have been unnecessary to appoint trustees for the purpose of receiving notice. In that case, of course, the trusteefl would have been the persons to exercise the powers of a tenant for life on behalf of the infant, and it would have been superfluous for them to give notice to themselves. So far so good. It appears reasonable to suppose that the framers of the Act may haV_B tllmlghz the class of persons who are intrnsted with the 1mP°;tfai1 functions of trustees for the purposes of the Act might ll; 9 e Y
