a case of Re Sbrihcrn Counties Fire Insurance Company, before the Master of the Rolls on the 13th inst., an application was made in the winding up of the company for leave to prove for the fall smount of a fire policy. The amount of the policy was £500, and the policy was current at the date of tbe winding up, which occurred on the 13th of December, 1579. The fire on the applicant's premises took place on the 22od of January, 1880, and claims were required to be sent in by the 10th of April, 1880. The applicant relied on He Trent and Humber Company (L. R. 6 Eq. 396), and on the fact that there was nothing in the Companies Act, 1862, or in role 25 of tbe Orders of November, 1862, to take away their right of proof. For the official liquidator it was submitted that under rule 25 the policy-holder could only prove 'for the amount due at the time of the winding np, which would be for tbe return of his premium or a proportionate part of it, and further that nnder section 10 of the Judicature Act, 1870, and section 31 of the Bankruptcy Aot, 1369, the creditor could not prove for more than the amount of his debt which he could swear was bond fide due at the time of the winding up, according to rule 67 of the Bankruptcy Rules, 1870, and form 32 of the Bankruptcy Forms of 1870. Jesset, M.R., said that even if tbe rules in bankruptcy applied to this case, which would seem to be doubtful, having regard to the decision of the Appeal Court that day of lie Witkernsta Brick Works, he did not think that tbe affidavit required to be sworn in support of the debt would prevent the applicant from proving his debt, as ench affidavit must of course be subject to adaptation according to the circumstances of tbe particular case. The difficulties in the way of holding that the proof was inadmissible were extraordinary. No doubt where a claim was contingent a man might treat the bankruptcy as a breach of the contract at bis election; but there had been no election in this case, and, in his opinion, the proof would be admissible under the Bankruptcy Act, 1S69. If the proof depended on the Companies Act of 1S62, he should come to tbe same conclusion. Section 158 did not deal with the proof of any ordinary debt, and rule 25 of the Orders of November, 1862, only referred to the proof of claims coming within the 158th section. Even if this was a debt not proveable under the 158th section, it was still proveable nnder the general law, as there was nothing in that section to take away a right of proof. Moreover, in his opinion, the case of In re Trent and Humber Company (L. R. <> Eq. 396), strongly bore out the above view, and therefore, on every ground, he thought the applicant was entitled to prove for the full amount of tbe policy, and he should accordingly make a declaration to that effect.—Solicitors, Oateliffi Howie; Clarke, Rawlins, § Clarke.
Vendor And Purchaser—Compulsory Purchase By Sailway Company — Building Land — " Mines And Minerals "—Railway Clauses Act, 1845, s. 77.—In the ease of In re The Metropolitan District Railway Company and Cotton's Trustees, before Hall, V.C.,on the 11th inst., the trustees were owners in fee of oertain lands at Fulham, which Qotil lately have been nsed for grazing and horticultural purposes. In 1878 and 1879, the company, acting under the powers of their special Act, served the trustees with notices to treat for some six acres of their land. By agreement the question of compensation for tbe land taken and damage by severance was referred to a well-known valuer as sole arbitrator. He gave his award for a sure which amounted to about £2,000 per acre, upon evidence which valued the property as being, as in fact it was, of great prospective value as building land. No mention of mines or minerals was made open the negotiations or before tbe arbitrator. The company, is taking the conveyance, insisted upon their right to have the words "including mines and minerals in and under " (the property) inclnded in tbe parcels, their reason being that, ^.though there were probably no minerals strictly so called, yet there were gravel and brick-earth, and a reservation by the vendors of tbe right to break or undermine the surface to obtain these would be quite incompatible with the user of the land tor building purposes. The 77th section of the Railways Clanfes Act, 1845, provides that "the company shall not he entitled to any . . . minerals under any land purchased by them, except only snch parts thereof as shall 'be necessary to be dug or carried away or used in the construction of the works, unless the snme shall have been expressly purchased, and all such minerals, excepting as aforesaid, shall be deemed to be excepted out of the conveyance of such lands unless they shall have been expressly named and conveyed
thereby." The oompany contended that, inasmuob as the whole assessment went upon tbe assumption of the property being building land, and as no land the minerals whereof were reserved could be utilized for. building, the vendors must be taken to hav6 expressly included the mines and minerals in the sale, and they took out a summons under the Vendor and Purchaser Act, 1874, to obtain a declaration that they were entitled to have the words in dispute included in tbe conveyance. The summons was adjourned into court for argument, but Hall, V.C., dismissed it with costs, saying that, in the face of the precise language of the Act of Parliament, and the fact that the minerals were not mentioned at the arbitration, there was nothing to entitle the company to the relief claimed.—Solicitors, Baxter Co.; A. F. # Ii. W. Tweedie.
CASES BEFORE THE BANKRUPTCY REGISTRARS. (Before Mr. Registrar Hazlitt acting as Chief Judge.) Dec. 7.—Re Kraft. New first meetiner of creditors allowed where a creditor, who has verbally undertaken to beoome trustee, afterwards declines to act.
This was an application for leave to convene a new first meeting of creditors under an adjudication against J. M. Kraft.
J. Gatey, in support of the application.
It appeared that after the adjudication had been made tho debtor applied to G. A. Smith, one of his creditors, to ascertain if he would become trustee. He said he was quite willing to do so, and at the first meeting the creditors passed a resolution by which they appointed Smith trustee. Smith was then asked to sign tbe resolution in order that it might be registered, but he said that before doing so he preferred to consult hia solicitor upon tbe subject. His solicitor subsequently advised him not to incur the risk and responsibility of becoming trustee, and he then declined to sign the resolution; and in the result registration of the resolution had been, refused.
Mr. Registrar Hazlitt.—Is the omission to sign the only reason for refusing registration? Gatey said that was so.
Mr. Registrar Hazlitt gave leave, under the circumstances, to summon a new first meeting of creditors.
Solicitors, J. & E. Scott.

The weekly meeting of this society was held at the Law Institution on the 7th iuat., Mr. G. H. Bower in the chair. Messrs. W. F. Beddoes and W. F. Barry were duly elected members of the society.

The weekly meeting of this society was held on the 14th inst. at the Law Institution, in conjunction with the United Liw Students' Sooiety, Mr. E. G. Spiers in the chair. The subject for discussion was "That both economical and social reasons render requisite a change in the system of land tenure in England, and that no change can be considered satisfactory which does not embody the abolition of the law of primogeniture and of settlement." The debate was opened on behalf of the United Law Students' Society by Mr. B. T. Bartrum, who was followed by Mr. E. F. Sponce in support of the motion, which was opposed ou behalf of the Law Students' Debating Society by Mr. J. Nicholls and Mr. C. E. Barry.

MANCHESTER LAW STUDENTS' SOCIETY.
The fifth meeting of the society for the present session was held last night (Tuesday) at the Law Library, Crossstreet, when the chair was taken by Edwin Jones, Esq., barrister-at-law. Messrs. J. H. Payne and Rowbottom were elected ordinary members of the society. Mr. F. W. Roe Rycroft, lately articled with John Leigh, Esq., solicitor of this city, to whom has just been awarded by the Incorporated Law Society the Cliffords'-inn Prize, and a first-class certificate in connection with his final examination, received quite an ovation on entering the room, and to him and to Mr. J. C. \V ilson, also lately a member of the society, who has gained a second-class honours certificate at the same examination, the congratulations of the society were voted. The subject for the evening's debate was as follows:— "John Thompson, who has carried on business in Manchester as a merchant in his own name, sells the stock and goodwill of his business to William Smith. He recommences the same business in Manchester under the same style, and deals, though not upon his own or his servants' private or special solicitation, with certain of his old customers. Is he restrainable from so doing?" The hon. secretary (Mr. Butcher) opened in the affirmative, and was followed by Messrs. Winser and Schofield on the same side, whilst Messrs. Hislop, Read, and Cleworth supported the negative. The following gentlemen also took part in the debate: Messrs, Norton, Lowndes, Rycroft, Hardman, Rayner, and Innes. Mr. Butcher replied and the chairman summed up, leaning in favour of the affirmative, but upon a vote being; taken that contention was negatived. A vote of thanks to the chairman concluded the meeting.
A correspondent of the City Press complains of the waste of time at the Mansion House. He says, "Professionally I have been in the court since the opening at twelve^ and here we are at three o'clock waiting for something, but no one appears to know what. The alderman is not on the bench, the clerk's chair is vacant ; but here we are waiting. What with the adjournments and other inconveniences, professional men will soon have to bid adieu to the Mansion House."
A correspondent of the Times says that in a recent issue of a local newspaper (the Clare Independent) he found the following :—" At a numerously attended meeting of the Clooney Branch League, Mr. J. Oulligan in the chair, it was unanimously agreed by resolution that Mr. J. Molony, solicitor, be 'Boycotted,' and that the peasantry shun his office, for having lent his professional services to issue writs on tenants of Maghera."
