The report of the Land Commission for England for 1886 states that the number of cases disposed of in various departments of the commission was 1,444 _a.ud of fresh applications 1,383, while no fewer than 34,000 letters and documents were received.

Jose h Edward Curteis, solicitor and ex-clerk to the East Stonehouse Local lljloard, who absconded from Plymouth in September last, leaving behind him defalcations in the local board accounts of nearly £15,000, an who was arrested at Calcutta on New Year’s Day, was committed for trial on Wednesday on eleven charges of forgery, two of embezzlement, and one of larceny.

At the Clerkenwell Police-court, on Wednesday, Frederick Holland, of Beech-street, Barbican, was summoned at the instance of the Incorporated Law Society for that he did on November 5 and 13 wilfully and falsely pretend to be a solicitor, contrary to the statute. Mr. Hum hreys prosecuted, and Mr. Swaiue defended. It appeared from Mr fiumphreyv opening statement and the evidence for the prosecution that in J uue last the defendant called upon James Betteridge, a greengrocer, of Liverpoolroad, Islington, who wished to eject a tenant named Smith from a house he owned. He said that he had been told Betteridge wanted legal assistance, and he was prepared to carry out the ejectrnent proceedings. From what he said, Betteridge was led to suppose that the defendant was a solicitor, and he at once paid him a guinea on account. Various legal proceedings followed, and Betteridge paid to the defendantiu all £18. The particular offences charged against the defendant were that he received £1 10s. from Betteridge on November 5 and £2 on November 13, which Betteridge now said he paid in the belief that the defendant was a solicitor. It was further said that the proceedings proved abortive-—in fact, Mr. Humphreys said, the action was premature, and in settlement of the proceedings Betteridge hadto pay some £23. Mr. Swaine, in defence, said l the defendant had acted throughout as a solicitor‘s clerk, he being in the i employment of a solicitor, who really had carried out the proceedings. Mr. Hosaok remarked that he had never said so to Betteridge. Had he done _so he would have acted legally. Mr. Henry Hand than went into the witness-box for the defence. He said he was a solicitor, but was not now in practice. He produced his certificate for 1886. During last year the defendant was in his employment. In June the defendant introduced the case of Bel!¢'rl'zi_1/c v. Smif , and although he left the wit-ness’s service in the following September he carried out the proceedings to the end. The defendant was now in the employment of another solicitor. Mr. Hosack imposed a fine of £5 in each case.—Tr'mer.
