sense above explained—that is, of construction—there are only the general principles of the common law to guide Ds, as such principles are expressed and applied in such like cases as Backhouse v. Bonomi (9 H. L. 0. 503); Nieklinr. Williams (10 Ex. 259); and Lamb v. Walker (26 W. B. 775, L R. 3 Q. B. D. 389).

The general principle is admitted, and will not be questioned, that in every action the ground of which is injuria cum damno, the damages sustained from the injuria (as well the future or prospective as the past and present damages) must be recovered in that action once for all, and no subsequent or second action will lie in respect of the same injuria for such future or prospecti ve damages, even when they have not been recovered in the original action (Clegg v. Dearden, 12 Q. B. 576); and this principle was re-affirmed in the decision of Lamb v. Walker, by the Queen's Bench Division, in May, 187S (see also Mayne on Damages, 3rd ed., pp. 84—86; 387—388). It is, however, in the application of this principle that .the difficulty regarding these refuseheaps, &c, arises. Because, while the original deposit of the refuse is an injuria (at common law) or (what is in effect the same thing) a circumstance entitling to compensation for damage (under the title), the difficulty is what to think of the continuance of the refuse upon the surface—scilicet, is such continuance liko a continuing trespass, a fresh injuria or fresh circumstance in respect of which (when coupled with the damage flowing therefrom) a fresh cause of action arises P The judgment of the Lord Chief Justice of England in Lamb v. Walker would be consistent with the view that the continuance of the refuse was a continuing injuria; but the judgments of the two other judges in that case (Manisty and Mellor, JJ.) would not be consistent with it; although, in fact, none of these judgments contain anything expressly in point, the action having been one for damage resulting from the withdrawal or diminution by one landowner of the adjacent support which his land afforded to the land of the plaintiff (a neighbouring landowner). Also, in leases of mines with surface rights, the writer has not unfrequently come across provisions by which the annual rent payable for surface taken is made to extend to surface not taken under the lease, bat taken under any previous lease or leases, so long as such land continues (not necessarily to be used as auxiliary to the mining operations, but) unrestored; and in all such leases it is very usual to insert a covenant to restore the surface, or else to pay the fee-simple value thereof, and in the meantime to continue payiug the annual rent. On the other hand, no such distinction as that suggested was attempted to be takeu (judging from the reports), or iras successfully taken, in Clet/g v. Dearden, whero the act from which the damage flowed was an injuria in the strict and proper sense of the word; and regarding the case of Mordue v. Dean, Ac, of Durham, where the act from which the damage flowed was one wrongful in , but under the title whereby the mines aud lands I rendered rightful, it is carrying that case too far to say either that it is against, or that it is in favour of, the distinction we have suggested. Bovill, C.J., does indeed remark that, with respect to an old pit-shaft existing at the date of the conveyance, "no compensation could be claimed for its mere continuance in existence"; but then that case also decided that the -compensation for damage recoverable was to be estimated with reference to the value of the land for any purpose, and that the compensation was to include damage by severance or otherwise, and not merely the value of the land actually token.

Is it possible that the distinction we have suggested does not hold good in respect of a trespass or other injuria strictly and properly so called {Clegg v. Dearden), bat that it does hold good in respect of acts which (subject to the liability for damage or for compensation) are rightful and not wrongful acts, in respect that they are acts flowing out of ownership, or are acts rendered «ight by contract or by grant? Some corroboration of

this suggested view is to bo found in Aspden v. Seddon (23 W. R. 580, L. R. 10 Ch. 394) in the judgments of Jessel, M.I?., and the late Lord Justice Mellish.

Regarding the other questions proposed in this article, the answer depends more or less in the case of each upon the opinion which may eventually prevail in regard to the principal question above discussed; but one thing appears to be certain, that the right to damages or even to compensation is a chose in action so far as regards all damage occasioned prior to the purchase deed; consequently, that such right, so far as regards such damage,, docs not pass to the purchaser as portion of, or as incidental to, his land, although of course he may acquire the chose in action by special agreement with his vendor, and obtain an express assignment thereof from him.

REVIEWS.

ACTION IN THE COMMON LAW DIVISIONS. Paficis Op An Action At Common Law, Showino At A Glance The Procedure Under The Judicature Acts And Rules In An Action In The Queen's Bench, Common Pleas, And Exchequer Divisions Of The High Court Op Justice. By Herbert E. Botle, Solicitor. Butterworths.

Mr. Boyle has put into a very short compass the proceedings in a common law action, and by ingenious arrangements as to type, he brings the various steps very clearly before the reader. The book can hardly fail to be of service to the student. The Rules of Court appear, from the passages we have examined, to be carefully condensod, and occasional references are given to cases. The book appears to us to be executed with more than average care.

*»* We have received another letter from our indefatigable correspondent, Mr. W. G. Walker. He appears to abandon all his objections to our review of hi9 book except two. (1) He says, "I said [i.e., in his last letter] that in Burdick v. Garrieh there was no proof that the person ia the fiduciary position had made interest or profit on the money in his hands. It is no refutation of this to say that he made use of the money. It is common enough for the use of money to result, not in profit, but in loss. Burdick v. Garrieh says it is not necessary that, in order to charge an executor with interest on money in his hands, you should prove that he litis made a profit; it is enough that by the wrongful retainer lie might have made one." In this last sentence Mr. Walker kindly supplies the answer to his former criticism. There boiiis proof that the trnstee had used the tru»t funds, that was tantamount, as regards the trustee's liability, to proof that he had made a profit by them, for where a trustee engaged in trade "makes use" of the trust fund, as in Burdick v. Ctarricle, by paying it into his own account at Iiis bankers, he Is always presumed to have made trade profits. As Eomilly, M.R., said in Williams v. Powell (15 Bfav., at p. 469), "the burden lies on the executor to show tbat, in f.ict, he has not had benefit in his trade from this increased balance at his bankers." We do not know that we Deed say more on this singularly unimportant point than thank Mr. Walker for explaining oar meaning.

But (2) Mr. Walker wishes to state that in our review we "suggested, as the source from which he ought to have been aware of the Indian Act of 1874, only the article in the Solicitors' Journal for 1878." We beg to eay that we did not make any suggestion whatever in onr review as to the only source from which Mr. Walker ought to have been aware of that Act, but we did suggest in our answer to his letter that if he bad either read one of the cases he cites, or had taken the trouble to look in Lewin on Trusts, he could have found local Indian Acts referred to which would have given him sufficient warning to enable him, with the help of the chronological table to the Indian Re. vised Statutes in Lincoln's-inn Library, and of the librarian, to discover the Act of 1874. To this suggestion Mr. Walker has two objections to offer. First, the local Acts mentioned in Lenin were repealed in 1855. What on earth does it matter? We did not say that Mr. Walker ought to have quoted the local repealed Acts, but that the mention of these Acta in Lewin might have enabled Mr. Walker to find hi3 way to the Act in force. Secondly, Mr. Walker says the chronological table of the Indian Statutes "was not received in Lineoln's-inn Library till some six or seven weeks after his manuscript had been committed to the press." This is too absurd. Have matters really come to such a pass that text-book writers are to be excused from trying to find a statute because, forsooth, the chronological table had not been received at tbe nearest library? How loDg would it have taken Mr. Walker either to walk to the British Museum Library, or to drop a note on the subject to the India Office P

CORRESPONDENCE.

BANKRUPTCY LEGISLATION.
[To the Editor of the Solicitors' Journal.']

Sir,—I observe from the Queen's Speech that the House of Commons will, during the present session, be asked to considei "measures for the further reform of tbe law of bankruptcy."

I think it will be at once admitted, that if any system could be devised whereby a considerable saving in the realization of the estates of liquidating debtors or bankrupts could probably be effected, the interests of the commercial world must be materially benefited.

With this object in view, I venture to offer the follow ing suggestions:—

1. In every large town in England and Wales, being a local centre possessing bankruptcy jurisdiction, there should be established a thoroughly competent official accountant, with a proper and sufficient staff of assistants, all to be appointed by Government at fair salaries The duties of such accountant and assistants to consist :—

(a.) Of the preparation of petition, affidavit, request, and list of creditors, Sec on behalf of any debtor desiring to present such petition in person. In cases where the services of a receiver and manager are needed, the Government accountant to fill that position.

(6.) In all cases (that is to Bay, whether the debtor employs a solicitor or not) the official accountant to prepare tbe statement of affairs for the statutory first meeting, and to take the trusteeship in the event of resolutions for liquidation being passed; to receive and distribute composition, if same accepted by the creditors, and, generally to realize (in liquidation); to declare a dividend upon, and to close every estate in the most expeditious manner, and all this free of expense. I would not dispense with a committee of inspection, where liquidation is resolved upon, but the same relation as now exists to a trustee should be continued as to the official accountant.

(c.) The solicitor filing the petition to register all re solutions passed ; to act as solicitor to the trustee, the committee of inspection, and the estate, and to take all such other steps as might be necessary and such as ire usual under the Act and Rules now in force. Such solicitor to be entitled, as heretofore, to his costs, to be taxed.

2. It will at once be asked by those conversant with the subject, From what fund is the expense of the employment of Government accountants and clerks to be defrayed? My answer is, let the stamp duty payabl upon every petition, affidavit, request, and list of creditors, gazetting, application, summons, ad valorem on registration of resolutions, on assets or composition, &c, be slightly increased—that is to say, the scale of fees to be revised to meet and cover the necessary outlay to be made by the Government—e.g., upon a liquidation petition, say £1 10s. instead of £1; on an affidavit

(filing) Is. Cd. in place of Is.; upon request and list of creditors, say Cd. a creditor instead of 3d.; postage on all circulars Id. instead of GUI., and so on, as to every stamp in fair proportion of increase.

3. Assuming the plan I have mentioned to be adopted,. I think it not too much to say that there would be no loss occasioned to the revenue. I believe it would be found to be the reverse.

4. But the most important of all results would, I feel persuaded, be achieved. I mean by this that accountants and trustees' charges would absolutely and entirely disappear, and every estate would, as a necessary consequence, gain greatly by the change, while, as to the small additional imposition of stamp duty, I cannot believe that any estate would seriously feel it. Furthermore, in my judgment, what is called "touting for proxies" would cease, because the inducement to ant accountant to obtain the post of trustee (in some instances a lucrative one) would no longer exist, as in every case the official accountant would hold that office.

I trust that you will not consider this communication too lengthy for insertion. My apology for troubling you with this letter must be the importance of the subject. Leicester, Jan. 10. X.

OPTION TO PURCHASE. [To the Editor of the Solicitors' Journal.] Sir,—I read with great interest your recent article on the effect of the insertion in a lease of an option to purchase on the devolution of real estate under the lessor's will; but it seems to me that the important distinction which is made when a testator specifically devises or sets out in detail his property is not noticed. I gather from the cases that the effect of this particularising of the property would be that it would pass according to the limitations of the will which would have been applicable to the property in case there had been no sale. Ii this is a wrong assumption I shall be glad to be set right.

Manchester. Wm. Baenett.

[We were not referring to the case of a specific de«vise.—Ed. 5./.]

On Monday week, Lord Gifford, one of the judges of the Second Division of the Court of Session in Scotland, had a paralytic seizure, which seriously affected his speech.

In the House of Commons, on Tuesday, Sir R. Cross asked the First Lord of the Treasury whether he would take step* to insure to the House an opportunity of discussing the Order in Council abolishing the offices of Lord Chief Justice of the Common Pleas and Lord Chief Baron, recently laid upon the table of the House, before that order should become law. Mr. Gladstone admitted that this was a grave question, which had a claim on their consideration when it became necessary to deal with it. The order had been on the table only four days, and as twenty-five days had yet to elapse before it became law, he hoped the right bon. gentleman would be so kind as to communicate with him so that the subject might be discussed at a time that might be convenient.

In connection with the Bill to consolidate and amend the law relating to the property of married women, in relation to which a notice was given in tbe House of Commons by Mr. Hinde Palmer, Q.C., on the first day of the session, a, deputation waited upon the Lord Chancellor on Tuesday at his private room in the House of Lords. The deputation consisted of Mr. Jacob Bright, M.P., Mr. Arthur Arnold, M.P., and Sir Arthur Hobhouse, and was introduced by Mr. Hinde Talmer. In the course of a prolonged interview, the provisions of the proposed measure were discussed. The Lord Chancellor expressed a desire for the opportunity of further considering the clauses of the measure, and promised that he would then consult with the promoters of the Bill as to its provisions and its progress in Parliament.

CASES OF THE WEEK.

PracticeOfficial RefereeMotion To Rescind Direction'sCosts.—In a case of Vnderhay v. Smith, before :the Master of the Rolls on the 11th inst., a motion was made by the defendants to rescind certain directions given by the official referee as to the mode of ascertaining a loss in certain partnership accounts. The question involved the construction of the partnership articles, and was of some complexity, and eventually the Master of the Rolls rescinded the directions given. The defendants then asked for the costs of the motion, and the plaintiffs submitted that the costs should be made costs in the action, as in effect the motion was similar to a summons for the direction of the judge as to the mode of taking the accounts, and was for the benefit of all parties. Jessel, M.R., however, held that a question of substance had been decided in the defendants' favour on appeal from the official referee ; and he therefore gave the applicants the costs of the motion.—Solicitors, Late, Hiusty, Hulbert; Fladgate, Smith, Fladgate.

PracticeLeave To Serve Notice Of Motion With The WritPower Of Chief Clerk To Grant SameOrder Lx ChambersDrawing Dp Of OrderRdxes Of Court, 1875, Ord. 53, R. 8.—In a case of Conacher v. Conaehtr, also before t>>e Master of the Rolls on the 11th inst., a motion was made fcr an injunction, and it appeared that leave to serve short notice of motion had purported to have been given by one of the chief clerks by his initialling an informal document applying for the same. An objection was taken that the motion could not be brought on, no proper leave having in fact, been given, as the chief clerk had no jurisdiction to [rive the same. By the notices issued as to the Christmas Vacation it is stated that "applications for leave to give short or other special notice of motion may be made at the chambers of the Vice-Chanoellor Malins," and the notices then specify that the brief of counsel in case of urgency is to be sent to the judge. It appeared that the chief clerk's leave had not been drawn up as an order. Jessel, M.R., was of opinion that the matter was entirely irregular, and that the chief clerk had no power, under ord. 53, r S, to give the leave. The proper way was for the brief of counsel to be sent to the judge in the usual way, and for the judge t) make the order. It the order bad been drawn up giving the leave, it would then have been a different thing, as snch order, though m ule in chambers, was in form made by the judge, and no person could go behind the order. As Do leave had been given to serve the notice, the motion mutt stand over, and no injunction could be granted that cay.—Solicitous, Layton £ Jaques: Van Sandau A; Camming.
