Mr. Justice Kay will take hia seat on the bench on Monday next, in the court recently occupied by ViceChancellor Malin

It Is Settled that the leaders attached to the court of Mr. Justice Fur will continue to practise before his lordship as successor to Vice-Chancellor Mallns.

Titb Costs on both sides of the second trial in Chamberlaine v. Barnwell are stated to have amounted to about £400 a day. As the trial lasted fifteen days, this represents an outlay of about £6,000, in addition to the costs of the previous trial.

An Order Op Transfer will be made of thirty causes from Mr. Justice Fry, and twenty from Vice-chancellor

Hall, to Mr. Justice Kay, for the purpose of hearing only. We believe that the causes to be transferred from Mr. Justice Fry's list will be placed at the head of Mr. Justice Kay's list, and that they will commence with the case of Elers v. Harvey.

In Substitution for the order of June 19,1877, which was discharged by the order of the 23rd of March last {ante, page 389), an order will be made directing that each of the several causes which shall be transferred to Mr. Justice Kay shall, until further order, be deemed to have been transferred to him for the purpose only of trial or of hearing, and that no cause or matter shall, until further order, be assigned to Mr. Justice Kay by the same being marked by the plaintiff or petitioner with the name of Mr. Justice Kay.

Mr. E. £. Kay has had a large experience of business both as junior and leader, and will, ive believe, justify his appointment as a judge of the Chancery Division, although, owing to some asperity of manner, he has not achieved much popularity among his professional brethren. We have, however, heard the opinion expressed by personsof experience that frequently the manner which it pleases leaders to adopt towards their juniors and clients is merely assumed to protect them against the waste of time to which good nature, if undisguised, might expose them; and that the apparent alteration in disposition which some leaders who have adopted this method of protection show when they have ascended to the bench is not really a change of character, but only an abandonment of a protection which is no longer necessary. Probably Mr. Justice Kay will afford an instance of the truth of this remark.

There Are Symptoms of dissatisfaction with the Solicitors' Remuneration Bill, which we regret to see are taking the form of opposition to its passing into law. The Liverpool Law Society have issued an elaborate report on the Bill, in which they state that, " while on the whole they approve of the measure," they object to the principle of charging by scale being applied to settlements; to the scale of fees including disbursements, and particularly to the fact that the scale is not set out in the Bill. The society have presented a petition to Parliament praying that on these grounds the Bill should not pass into law. We think this a grave mistake. If the society, as they state, approve of the general principle of the Bill, the proper course to be taken, in order to obtain amendments in detail, is to bring the united action of the profession, through the Incorporated Law Society and the Associated Provincial Law Societies, to bear on those in charge of the Bill and members of the House, while the Bill is in Committee. Nothing can be gained by isolated action with regard to a Bill of this kind, and it is not likely that a better opportunity will ever occur than at present is afforded of obtaining a satisfactory measure.

Whatever May Be Thought of the expediency of the prosecution of the Freiheit, or of the conduct of the police in executing the warrant, there appears to be ground for supposing that in proceeding against the proprietor of that paper for a libel which, although relating
