f Tns srarsnssr that the Lord Chancellor will preside at the Iofithcoming banquet of the Incorporated Law Society is unfounded. e chair at the first dinner will be occupied by the President, 2115 at the second by Mr. G. B. GREGORY. Among the guests who Give accepted invitations are the Lord Chancellor, the Lord L agcellor of Ireland, the Master of the Rolls, Lord Honiiorsi-J, G°1' Cuniiisronn, several of the Judges, the Attorney and Solicitoregiemli Sir H.

p°xYtE;liI.IEVE that the observations of the Council of the Incorthe he d aw Society on the Land Transfer Bill will probably be in The ail; s of the authorities in the course of the present week. confide “Jail: 011 a subjpct of so much importance there can be the refs to have rea y been any delay) has arisen mainly from sendililll out course adopted by the committee of the council in sociefigsa ‘>3?!’ Of the Bill and Act of 1875 to all the country law in the all _ to sohcitors who are known to take a special interest
question of land transfer, asking for their opinions on the
series of queries relating to the chief proposals for registration and alteration in the law of real property. The tabulated replies to ‘these questions will afford a valuable epitome of professional opinion.
The NUMBER of Bills now before the House of Commons exceeds 250, and of these by far the greater proportion have been introduced by private members. Mr. Sraxnnr LEIGHTON proposes before long to call the attention of the House “ to the increasing number of Bills introduced by private members for the purpose of ventilating their own particular crotchets ; to the unscientific drafting of such Bills, and to the waste of public money and time in printing and discussing them, and to move that provision ought no longer to be made in the estimates for the printing and publication of Private Members’ Bills.” Considering that no Bill may be introduced without leave of the House, and looking to the large sums spent upon the printing of Parliamentary papers other than Bills, we think such a motion goes too far. But Mr. STANLEY LEIGIITON will do good service in calling attention to the unscientific drafting of Bills. The work of drafting Bills cannot be effectively done without professional assistance, and it would not be too much to require that, as the country pays for the printing of a Bill, the private member should pay for the proper preparation of the manuscript from which it is printed; to require, in short. that the draft of each Bill introduced by a private member should have on its back the name of u solicitor.
In oun issui: of the 26th of March we called attention to the refusal of Mr. Fox, the registrar of the Croydon County Court, to allow unqualified practitioners to conduct cases before him, and we suggested that the Incorporated Law Society should be represented when the judge gave his decision on the question raised by the unqualified person, whether the registrar had the right to refuse to hear him, which the judge intimated he would do on the 5th of April. In accordance with our suggestion, Mr. HOLLAMS appeared on behalf of the society, and Judge LUSIIIINGTON delivered a very important judgment (ante, p. 396) to the effect that, in future, he would not allow unqualified persons to conduct cases in his courts. We understand that the Council of the Incorporated Law Society have printed the judgment, and have sent a copy to all the county court registrars, with a request that they should decline to permit agents and other unqualified practitioners to conduct cases before them. The judgment has also been sent to all the provincial law societies, with a letter suggesting that each society should aid the council in putting a stop to the very objectionable practice referred to. We are glad to be able to add that several of the county court judges and their registrars have followed Mr. Fox's examp e, and have refused to hear agents, and we hopc soon to be able to announce that n practice so injurious to the public and the profession has, in this way, been stamped out.
Turns was an advertisement the other day in the Times asking any firm having the papers of a solicitor who, in 1852, practised near Lincoln's-inn-fields to communicate with the solicitors inserting the advertisement. This is only o._ specimen _of a last desperate attempt to solve the perplexities which daily arise among London solicitors in tracing papers. Pirms dissolve partnership or transfer their business to other solicitors. _The papers change hands, and frequently there is no mode of tracing them, or a long and laborious inquiry is necessary to find them. Can no means be devised for remedying this inconvenience ? Suppose the Incorporated Law Society were to open_ and keep a register, in which, on payment of a small fee, solicitors w_ho receive the papers of other solicitors, on taking over their business, might enter the ‘fact of the transfer, the register being open for inspection by solicitors on payment of a fee. If circulars and forms were sent to all London solicitors asking them to fill in the names of all former firms or solicitors whose papers they'at present hold, and an intelligent clerk were set to the preparation and keeping up of an index, a work of the greatest utility to the profession might be accomplished, and we think it can hardly be doubted that the
‘index would soon prove a source of substantial revenue. The
