accidentally omitted to be stamped. If we may judge from instances which have come under our observation, the mitigated penalty imposed in such cases is now £4 instead of £2 as formerly. It is no doubt true that the penalty imposed by the Stamp Act is intended to protect the revenue against losses through carelessness as well as against losses through fraud, but it is worthy of consideration whether a penalty of £2 is not sufficient for the former purpose. A solicitor who has had to pay u fine of £2, and to incur the trouble of memorializing the commissioners, will, it seems to us, be just as likely to take precautions against the recurrence of such an accident as if he had had to pay £4. At all events it seetn« to us that a difference should be made in the amount of the penalty imposed in cases of a first, or infrequent, offence. Accidents will occur in the best regulated offices, and it does seem to be unfair that the penalty for the rare slips of these offices should be the same an in the case of the frequent omissions of less careful practitioners.

There Has Been some d iscussion this week as to the liability incurred by the steamship company which recently refused to ship Mr. Bencb Jones's cattle at Cork. It was suggested that the company should be sued by the consignees for breach of their duty as common carriers, in reply to which *' A Barrister " offered an opinion that the company would be exempt from liability because they were prevented from receiving the cattle by the act of " the Queen's enemies." This expression seems to extend only to foreign enemies. In Story on Bailments (section 526) it is said that "losses which are occasioned by robbery on the highway, or by the depredations and violence of mobs, rioters, and insurgents, and other felons, are not deemed looses by enemies within the meaning of the exception of the Queen's enemies." The. reason for this rule is explained in Chitty and Temple on Carriers (p. 38), to be that, in case of loss of goods through riot, the carrier might claim compensation from the county or hundred. The act of the Queen's enemies, moreover, appears only to be a defence in the case of loss or damage to goods where there has been a contract to carry them, and does not constitute any answer to an action . against a carrier for a refusal to carry good?, although the dicta of the judges of the Court of Queen's Bench in Edwards v. Sherratt (1 East. 604), seemed to show that the probability of a quantity of corn being seized by a mob would justify a barge owner in declining to undertake to convey it by canal. It is difficult to see how a threat of withdrawal of custom by other parties can modify the common law liability of a carrier.

After The Careful and elaborate judgment delivered by Sir James Hannen in Harvey v. Farnie (2c> W. R. 723, L. R. 5 P. D. 153), it was hardly to be expected that the appeal from his decision would have a successful result. The question to be decided was shortly this, whether a foreign decree of divorce, pronounced by a court of competent jurisdiction upon grounds which would not have afforded a right to relief in this country, should be recognised by an English court. It will be remembered that the respondent, while domiciled in Scotland, had been married in Wales to an Englishwoman, but afterwards went back to reside iu Scotland, where his wife obtained a decree dissolving the marriage, on the ground of his adultery; and

that his second marriage was contracted in England after he had acquired an English domicile. It was scarcely disputed that, as a general rule, the court is bound to recognize a change of status brought about by the decree of a tribunal in another country, if it affects a person who was domiciled in that country when the decree was pronounced; but the appellant's counsel apparently relied mainly upon the resolution of the judges in Lolley's case (B. & E. 337), that "no sentence or act of any foreign country or State could dissolve an English marriage a vinculomatrimoniitoi grounds on which it was not liable to be dissolved a vinculo matrimonii in England." Sir J. Hannen pointed out that the marriage in the present case, although contracted in England, was not "an English marriage" in the sense of having been solemnized between two persons owing allegiance to the law of England, since the cohabitation took place in the country where the husband was domiciled, and the wife, though an Englishwoman, had acquired the domicile of her husband. He also observed that Lord Brougham's strong feeling as to the injustice of the decision in Lolley's case had led him to mis-state its effect when giving judgment in McCarthy v. De Caix (2 E. & M. 617), and, in dismissing the petition, Sir James Hannen pointed out that the Irish case of Maghee v. McAllister (3 Ir. Ch. E. 604), was precisely in point. The Court of Appeal appear to have proceeded upon much the same grounds. Lord Justice James said that the case was not governed by Lolley's case, since there the Scotch decree had been pronounced between two persons who were domiciled in England, and were only temporarily resident in Scotland, and he laid it down that, although an Englishman who resorts to a foreign country for the sole purpose of obtaining a domicile, may not be able to do so effectually, the forum which is the real bond fide domicile of the husband and wife, must decide any questions as to their status, such as whether that status was originally properly constituted, or whether any circumstances which have since arisen afford a ground for dissolving it. Lord Justice Lush thought that the chief difficulty upon the question had arisen from the use of the ambiguous phrase "an English marriage " in the judgment in Lolley's case, since the word " English " might refer either to the country where the marriage was solemnized, or to the domicile of the parties. It is now stated that the case will go to the House of Lord>.

The Suggestions of the Institute of Bankers with reference to bankruptcy law amendment follow closely in many respects the suggestions of the council of the Incorporated Law Society which we recently printed. The points in which they differ from or add to tliem are chiefly the following:—Trustees should be appointed by the creditors for a certain fixed period, but should be eligible for re-electiou. The remuneration paid to the trustee should be principally determined in relation to the amount of dividends, distributed among the creditors, i.e., by a commission, to be fixed by the creditors, subject to review by tho court The power of the court to make rules should be limited to technical details of procedure, and "should not include the power of introducing new principles or modifying the provisions of the Act of Parliament, as at present." The debtor's estate ought to be placed under the direct control of the creditors within as short a period as is consistent with the necessary formalities to be observed in calling them together. Proofs of debt should (before a creditor Is allowed to vote) be accompanied by the accounts and vouchers necessary to prove the same, as under the Scotch Act. Xo person should be capable of being a trustee who holds an interest opposed to that of the general body of creditors; and a trustee or member of committee should be capable of removal by the same majority of creditors as that which appointed him. The bills of solicitors and other agents employed by the

trustee ought to be rendered at short and stated intervals and ought to be taxed by the court before payment. They ought also to be limited to strictly professional business, and should not include charges for work which ought to be done by the trustee. It should be made a criminal offence for any solicitor or other agent to share any portion of his remuneration with the debtor or the trustee. The use of proxies should be limited either to a specific purpose at a particular meeting, or to persons ia the regular employment of the creditor in his business, and proxies should only be used for the appointment of a trustee when the name of the person to be appointed is inserted in the proxy. A certain number of the creditors should, at any time, be empowered to call upon the trustee to summon a meeting.


It Is surprising with what readiness lessors assent to the insertion in leases of an option to the lessee to purchase the demised premises at a specified sum. If they were aware of the results of this apparently innocent clause, ic is difficult to believe that it would be found in -so many leases. Xo professional adviser of a lessor should insert it without warning his client that the effect will be that the property to which the option relates will be considered as converted into personalty, but if the option should not be exercised before the death of the lessor, the rents of the property will go to the heir or devisee until the option is exercised, and on the exercise of the option the purchase-money will go as personalty under the lessor's will. Thus, if the lessor has made his will on the assumption that the property leased is real property, his arrangements may be altogether upset by the exercUo by the lessee of his option to purchase after the death of the testator. If, on the other hand, the testator has made his will on the assumption that the property will be considered as converted, his dispositions may be seriously interfered with by the delay of the lessee in exercising his option, and may be altogether frustrated if he fails to exercise it. The question of who will get the lessor's property depends upon the caprice of the lessee. It cannot be doubted that the operation of the rule of law on this subject is, as Mr. Prideaux has said, "inconvenient and generally contrary to the lessor s intention." ...

But lessors who are absolute owners are not the only class of persons who may be led into a trap by the insertion in a lease of an option to purchase. Trustees for sale are not unfrequently in the habit of granting leases of the trust property when they are expressly empowered to do so, and they are not unlikely to agree to give the lessee an option to purchase tho property at a specified price, within a limited period. Such an arrangement seems reasonable, and trustees—especially if the property is house property—are often in the position of having to decline an advantageous offer unless they will give a cautious purchaser the opportunity of testing for himself the convenience and suitability of the premises. But it has long been settled that this is beyond the power of trustees. In Clay v. Rufford (5 De G. ft Sm. 768) reasons were given for this rule, which, theoretically, are. no doubt, extremely strong. "it is an agreement," said the court, "under which the defendants, the lessees, are entirely free. There is no obligation upon them to purchase at all, but it is contemplated that the lessors for the whole term shall he bound, at any time during the whole term of twenty-oue years, to sell this property to the defendants for jStO,000, if the defendants thiDk fit to desire it. The governing body for the time being are to exercise no discretion at the time as to whether that sale is for the benefit of the company or not. They may be persuaded that it is moat injurious to the company to sell, or to sell at that price;
