Ir snmis PROBABLE that the authority which may have first suggested the Government’s offer to consent to a prosecution being instituted by the Attorney-General against the Times for the article on Mr. DILLON is the passage in M.ii"s Parliamentary Practice (7th ed., p. 96) that “on some occasions the House has directed prosecutions against pcrsons who have publiahed libels reflecting upon members, in the same manner as if the publications had affected the House collectively.” On reference to the Commons Journa1< it will be found that the two cases to which a reference is given in the foot-note bear out the statement in the text. The first of them occurred in 1699, when “a complaint was made to the House of a printed paper, one of which was presented to the House, and read at the table, subscribed by Enwann Srnrnnns, containing high reflections upon the honour of this House in general, and in particular upon Mr. J OHN _H°“'. o member thereof. Resolved mm. can. that the said paper is a false and scandalous libel; ordered that Mr. Attorney-General 3° Pforecute the said Enwaim Srarnrss for the said false and scandalous libel ” (18 Com. J. 230). And a committee was "PP°"Jted “to inquire after the printer of the said false and scandalous libel, and to report the same to the House.” The second case occurred in 1702, when the Attorney-General was d"'°°t@d_to prosecute Mr. Lnorn, the Bishop of Woiicssrmfs son, :1; “grievous aspersions ” against Sir J our: PACKINGTON, in telling

Ra freeholdcrs that he “voted for bringing in a French
Government.”

p g e papers read. But to return to the subject
of the recent discussion. The case for reform, as we understand it,
is based on the contention that the system is antiquated and
anomalous. The fees vary in different counties. According to Mr.
Mvsron the warrant costs 2s. 6d. on the Middlesex side of West-
minster Bridge; 5s. on the other side of the bridge; and 7s. in
Lancashire. The cost of execution to the debtor, again, is stated
to he unreasonably heavy. The writ of execution applies to one
county only, while ordinary process is operative all over England.
And, lastly, the bailiffs employed are alleged to be frequently unfit
persons, and not undcr any proper supervision. There is no blame
imputed to the under-sheriffs as a body ; it is the system which is
at fault, and no one can doubt that it is in many respects ill-
adapted to the present state of society. Mr. Monros proposed to
remove altogether the execution of final civil process from the
otfice of sheriff and to establish an execution department in the
Supreme Court. It is doubtful whether so radical a remedy could
be carried, or indeed whether it is required, but if the committee
appointed at the recent meeting can agree upon practical sugges-
tions for so modifying the existing system as to lessen or remove
the present abuses and anomalies, the discussion will have been
productive of more valuable results than most of the debates at
the Law Institutions which we have had to chroniclc in recent years.

[ocr errors]

We REPORT elsewhere the results of the first discussion by a law society of the Land Transfer Bill which has reached us. The Shropshire Law Society direct their observations upon the registration part of the Bill mainly to the question of compulsory registration of title, involving the intervention of a board of officials; and the objections they urge against this proposal are undoubtedly practical, reasonable, and weighty. Their views on this point are shared by many of the most experienced members of the profession. But it appears to us that the time is past for such a discussion. There is, or is supposed to be, a general agreement among the lay public in favour of compulsory registration of title; the large landowners (or their representatives in the House of Lords) appear to be at one with the Free Laud lleague on this subject; the leaders of legal opinion on both sides of the Houses of Parliament are committed to some such scheme, and, this being so, it can hardly be expected that any protests 011 the part of the legal profession against the proposal for compulsory registration of title will be listened to. It may possibly_be that a. combined effort might secure postponement of the operation of the compulsion clauses; for, as we pointed out last week, the Bill does not contemplate compulsion as inevitably following on the establishment of a land transfer district; but, so far as existing indications go, it would seem that compulsion will come sooner or later. The practical course seems to be to endeavour, as far as possible, to minimize the possible evils of _tne proposed system, and to lend the aid of knowledge and experience by way of suggestions as to the details of a scheme which is certauily tentative and cautious in its application of compulsion. With this view we have, in our observations on the Bill, declined to discugs the question whether registration of title is the ‘best _jsystl9Iir't0 adopt, and whether compulsion is necessany or e‘xp_edient_; and have, in the first instance, stated and discussed the Bill as it was introduced, and we-propose, when we are able to see the form into which-the Bill will ultimately be moulded, and the rules which will fill up its details, to devote ourselves to the consideration of the points upon which amendment appears to be necessary.
