Ir WILL iis seen from a report of Ifeeve v. Fowle, which will be found elsewhere, that the Court of Appeal has put a final stop to a practice—which we believe has been very generally adopted by county court judges, under the Debtors Act, 1869nfter an order has been made for payment by instalments and (default has occurred, of making an order for committal, with a irection that the warrant thereunder should not issue so long as monthly instalments are duly paid. The Court of Appeal held that this was practically an order of commitment on failure to pay {my one of the future instalments, and was in excess of the Jumdlction of the court. We regret the result of the decision, for we believe the effect of the practice has been to lessen the pumber of imprisonments, and that it has been, on the whole, eneficial alike to creditor and debtor.

term had been free from any right of redemption, so as to be capable of enlargement under the Conveyancing Act, 1881, s. 65, as in this case the mortgagee could have acquired, and therefore it might be argued that his money was secured on, the fee simple.

Mn. J vsrici: KAY iii a lenient moment allowed a solicitor who had been discharged before trial to obtain a charging order, under 23 & 24 Vict. c. 127, s. 28, on property recovered or preserved in the action, on the ground that his exertions had been instrumental in bringing about the successful result (Re Wadsworth, 33 W. R. 558, 29 Ch. D. 517). The order was made subject to the lien of the succeeding solicitors. It naturally occurred to the discharged solicitor that, as he had not discharged himself, but had been discharged by his client, all the costs incurred for the same end ought to be paid paripasm, and as between himself and the succeeding solicitors ought to rank together. He accordingly took out a summons to have this rule applied. He was, however, met by a judgment of Vice-Chancellor Woon, given in Cormack v. Bm'sI_z/ (3 D. G. & J., at p. 162), and stated by the reporter to be “ abridged from the shorthand notes of the judgment,” in which the learned judge said that “ it appeared on principle that the solicitor who last conducted the suit was the person who ought to take his costs first. Even if a solicitor was discharged by his client he could not insist upon continuing the suit in order that he might work out his lien, nor could he, probably, even then claim priority over the new solicitor who conducted the cause to an end." As in the case in question, the solicitor had retired from flee suit, these observations as to the case of a solicitor discharged by his client were merely rlicfa ; but Mr. Justice KAY not only treated them as deciding the matter, but on the strength of them refused leave to appeal. He said that the rule laid down by Vice-Chancellor \Vo0n “had not been dissented from by the j udgcs on the appeal.” Of course not, it might be said; there was no question of a solicitor discharged by a client before them for decision. The matter is one on which there is a good deal to be said both ways, and it is certainly to be regretted that it is not to be discussed before the Court of Appeal. In spite of Mr. Justice K.ii"s statement that “there is no hardship" in the rule, we venture to think that there may be a good deal of hardship in the charge of a solicitor discharged by his client being postponed to that of the succeeding solicitor; instances are conceivable in which, while he may have done the greater part of the work, he may, by no act of his own, lose the whole or a part of his costs. On the other hand, it may, no doubt, be contended that if the succeeding solicitor does little work, his costs will be proportionately small, so that the rulc docs not work unfairly. Our impression, however, is that the balance of fairness is in the direction of all costs which tend to the successful result being paid pari passu. For the present, however, it must be taken to be settled _that, whether a solicitor retires or is discharged by his client, his charge upon funds recovered or preserved in the action will be postponed to the lien of the succeeding solicitor.

Aiv ESTEEMED CORRESPONDENT, following the prevalent fashion, has propounded a prize puzzle, omitting, however, the prize. _He asks us whether a candidate for the mayoralty, being the outgoing mayor, can preside at his own election, and, if so, whether he may give himself an original vote, and, in case of equality, a casting vote also? And he adds another problem as to whetl_icr_ the mayor can give like votes for an alderman. The omniscicnce supposed to belong to the editorial “ we ” being inadequate for the solution of these problems, they_ were referred to a learned authority on the Municipal Corporations Acts, who has favoured us with the following ohservations:—“Thc question, which is by no means an easy one, depends upon_thc construction of sections 15 and 61 of the Municipal Corporations Act, 1882, and rule 9 of schedule 2 of that Act. By the_ rule last mentioned, ‘ at every meeting of the council the mayor, if present, shall be chairman,’ provision being subsequently made for supplying his placc in case of absence, but in no other case.
