We are of so much interest and importance that they deserve to be have always contended, and, what is of more importance, Sir quoted. He said :

James Bacon, when on the bench, considered (Re Godfrey, 33 “When I first remember Westminster Hall and the City of London I W. R. 23), that the so-called "two-thirds” rule was not a hard commercial law it was impossible to obtain. You had the first merchants and fast rule binding on the court. Three or four years ago, in a of the City serving as jurors, and though they were not called commercial somewhat elaborate consideration of the subject, we traced the judges, they were in truth commercial judges. You had the direction of history of the so-called rule from its first enunciation, or supposed ibe law from the judge, and you had sitting in the jury box, as a general enunciation, in a remark made by Lord Cottenham in Stickney v. rule, twelve special jurymen of the City of London, all of them engaged Sevell (1 My. & Cr. 13), and we attempted to shew that this that that is so now. I quite admit that a change has come over the remark had been misapprehended, and that the so-called “rule," system by reason of an alteration, rightly or wrongly, of the jury system. if considered as a hard and fast rule, had very little authority to London, and those like them all over the country, rather complained that had, in Fry v. Tapson (33 W. R. 113), attempted to re-establish, and I believe, if the truth were known, the special jurors of the city of support it. That was so then ; but we wrote before Mr. Justice Kay special jury panel ought to be somewhat wider than it was. However, had specially approved, the doctrine in its most stringent form. The the fact is as I have stated it ; and I quite admit that under the changing opinion of the House of Lords on the matter was expressed on circumstances it may be necessary to make some alteration of the system.” Monday in the following terms:—“As a general rule, the law Everyone who knows the facts will admit that there has been a required of a trustee no higher degree of diligence in the execution change, though everyone will not admit that it is wholly due to of his office than a man of ordinary prudence would exercise in the the cause mentioned by the Lord Chancellor.

But no change in the metropolitan courts investments of that class which were attended with hazard. So will meet the wishes of the present memorialists. They long as he acted in the honest observance of these limitations the want to have cheap and speedy commercial tribunals at their general rule already stated would apply. The courts of equity had doors. They have the common sense to recognize the necessity indicated and given effect to certain general principles for the for the presidency of a lawyer judge, but they insist on his being guidance of trustees in lending money upon the security of real assisted by commercial judges, and they propose that the tribunal estate. Thus it, had been laid down that, in the case of ordinary shall either be, or be connected with, the county courts, and that agricultural land, the margin ought not to be less than one-third appeals from the decisions of the tribunals shall be allowed on of its value; whereas in cases where the subject of the security questions of law, but not on matters of fact. We think that the derived its value from buildings erected upon the land, or its use memorialists make a mistake in insisting on commercial judges; for trade purposes, the margin ought not to be less than one-half. commercial assessors sitting with a judge would seem to answer He did not think these had been laid down as hard and fast limits every reasonable purpose, and would obviate the objection which up to which trustees would be invariably safe, and beyond which arises at once to a court of one lawyer and two commercial men they could never he in safety to lend, but as indicating the lowest viz., that the latter would overrule the lawyer on questions of margins which, in ordinary circumstances, a careful investor of law, and so lead to endless appeals.
