Lord Justice Baogalxat continues to make good progress towards recovery, but his medical advisers do not deem it prudent for him to resume his judicial duties until after the Whitsun vacation.

The Central Hall of the Royal Courts of Justice is making rapid progress towards completion. The groining of the roof or ceiling is about to be commenced, the stone arches between three pairs of buttresses being already finished. Above the groining there will be a elated roof protecting the work from the weather.

The Totjormtty of practice with reference to sitting on the Queen's birthday, which was last year established among all the courts, both of the Common Law and Chancery Divisions, is, we regret to say, this year to be departed from. We are informed that on Thursday last Lord Colzbidge announced that none of the courts of

the Queen's Bench Division would sit on the Queen's birthday. Up to Thursday we understand that no decision had been arrived at on the subject among the judges of the Chancery Division, but we believe it is probable that most of them will sit on Saturday.

In The Tear 1879, the Council of the Incorporated Law Society, after communicating with the Probate Registrars, sent a circular to the leading firms of law Btationers in London with reference to the transaction by them of non-contentious probate business as agents for solicitors. The council expressed their opinion that a law stationer who could bo proved to havo acted as the agent of a solicitor in a proceeding in the Probate Court under rule 2 of the Rules of 1862 was liable, under the Stamp Act, 1870 (section 59 and schedule) to a penalty of £50 ; and was further (under the Solicitors Act, 1860) guilty of a contempt of court, and liable to a further penalty of £50. The council in their circular asked the law stationers, in case they were not disposed to concur in this opinion, to agree with the council on some mode of obtaining a judicial determination of the question. In answer to this circular several law stationers expressed their intention of abandoning the practice, but some refused to do so, and declined to concur with the council in obtaining any decision as to its legality. The council subsequently commenced proceedings to recover penalties against some leading firms of law stationers, and there will be found in another part of our issue this week reports of the trial of two of these cases, in which it was arranged that formal judgment should be given for the plaintiffs for £50, so as to enable the defendants to go to the Court of Appeal. There can, we think, be little doubt that it is an infringement of the letter, as well as of the spirit, of the law that a law stationer should transact business in the Probate Registry as agent for a solicitor, and the practice has been condcmnec*. both by the Incorporated Law Society and by the Associated Provincial Law Societies. But so long as the profession countenance it, whatever may be the result of the present proceedings, means will doubtless be found by the law stationers of continuing the practice.

The Copyright in the Revised Version of the New Testament, so fsr as there is a copyright, has a very different position from that of the copyright in the Authorized Version. The copyright in the Authorized Version was originally in the Crown, the right being considered either as depending upon the circumstance of that translation having been made at the Crown's expense, or as arising out of the duty of the Crown to provide the people with a correct version. The right was denied in Ireland by Lord Chancellor Clare {Qrierson v. Jackson, Ir. T. R. 304); but has never been disputed in England since the ca6e of Universities of Oxford and Cambridge v. Nicholson (6 Ves. 278). The Crown, by letters patent, has, from time to time, vested its exclusive right of printing and selling the Scriptures in the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge, concurrently with the Queen's Printer. The authors of the Revised Version have, as the public are informed in the preface, assigned the copyright to the Universities. Bnt how long does such copyright last f A private trans* lator cannot, of course, invest his work with that perpetuity of copyright which the law forbids, merely by an assignmenttoanundyingcorporation. Although there has been such an assignment, the Life of the assignor (or In the case of a joint translation the life of the longest liver of the translators) and seven years afterwards, or not less than forty-two y earsin all—not the life of the corporation— regulates the term of the copyright. There is, however, a statute passed in 1775 which, at first sight, seems to Test a perpetual copyright in the Universities. The Act 16 Geo. 3, c. 53, after reciting that "authors . . . may give the copies of books composed by them to or in trust for one of the two Universities, etc., and may direct that the profits arising from the printing and reprinting such books shall be applied ... as a fund for the advancement of learning and other beneficial purposes of education within the said Universities; and that whereas such useful purposes will frequently be frustrated unless the sole printing and reprinting of such books be preserved and secured to the said Universities in perpetuity"; provides that the said Universities shall have for ever tho sole liberty of printing and reprinting "' all such books as shall be bequeathed or otherwise given by the author or authors of the same respectively to or in trust for the said Universities." But this statute cau hardly avail to extend the copyright in the Revised Version, for in the first place it appears from the preface to that work that there was an " arrangement providing for the necessary expenses of the undertaking," aud in the next place the statute in terms applies to originals and not to translations.

A Question has already arisen whether the Revised Version of the New Testament may be used in churches when the second lesson comes to be read. It has been said that the Church of England has never tied herself down to a particular translation, although where the Bible forms a part of the Book of Common Prayer—as is the case with the Epistles and Gospels— t o old version must, by the very terms of the Act of Uniformity, be used to the letter. There is, however, direct authority for the proposition that even in the lessons the authorized version must be used. In Newbery v. Goodwin (1 Phil. 282), a suit was brought against a clergyman for (inter alia), "irregularities in reading the Holy Scriptures," and a monition was decreed against the defendant to refrain for the future from offending in the manner charged in the articles. Sir John Nicholls said: "The law directs that a clergyman is not to diminish, in any respect, or to add to, the prescribed form of worship. Uniformity in this respect is one of the leading characteristics of the Church of England. Nothing is left to the discretion or fancy of the individual. If any minister were to alter, omit, or add according to his own taste, this uniformity would soon be destroyed, and though the alteration might begin with small things, yet it would soon extend itself to more important changes in tho public worship of the Established Church, and even in the Scriptures themselves the most important passages might be materially altered under the notion of giving a more correct version, or omitted altogether as unauthorized interpolations." The principle of this case will, of course, hold good as regards any version not authorized, although produced under the authority of Convocation. The case appears to proceed upon the authority of the Canons. The 14th Canon prescribes that" all ministers shall observe the orders . . . prescribed in the Book of Common Prayer, as well in reading the Holy Scriptures, and saying of prayers, as in administration of the Sacraments, without either diminishing, in regard of preaching or in any other respect, or adding anything in the matter or form thereof." Canon 80 also directs that " if any parishes be yet unfurnished with the Bible of the largest volume, the churchwardens shall, within convenient time, provide the same at the like charge of the parish." Both these Canons clearly proceed on the assumption that, whether altered or not by authority from time to time, one uniform test shall be used at the same all churches.

Consols Having Beached a price considerably above par, after allowing for accrued .interest, it becomes a matter of some importance to understand exactly the terms upon which these and other Government debts may be " paid off." The very numerous statutes authorizing the National Debt, mostly repealed by the Statute Law Revision Act, 1870 (33 & 34 Vict. c. 69), were recait and, as far as material re-enacted, by The National Debt Act, 1870 (33 & 34 Vict. c. 71), (passed during Mr. Gladstone's tenure of office), which is very precise. The 5th section provides that the annuities described in the first schedule to the Act shall form part of the National Debt, and " shall respectively continue redeemable by Parliament at the periods aud in the manner in the same schedule mentioned, at the rate of one hundred pounds for every one hundred pounds of the capital sums in respect whereof they are payable." The annuities described in the schedule are 3 per Cent. Consols, 3 per Cent. Reduced, New 3 per Cents. New 3} per Cents., and New 2} per Cents. Of those the New 3 per Cents, are redeemable at any time without previous notice, and the 3£ and 2J per Cents, (also without notice) at any time after the 5th of January, 1894. In speaking of redemption of the " New Threes " without notice, we merely mean that no notice is provided for by the Act of 1870, which follows faithfully in this respect the Act, 7 Vict.c. 4, by which these annuities were created. Probably however, the precedent of that Act, which allowed the holders of certain 3i per Cents, about six months to declare their option to be paid off or to accept the lowei rat9 of interest, would be followed in a greater or less degree; but an Act of Parliament would be necessary to provide for notice, to which the creditor scarcely appears to be entitled in strict law Those who buy 2| per Cents, at their present discount, therefore, may be paid off in fourteen years at a handsome premium. Consols and Reduced are redeemable at any time, subject to a peculiar "regulation" scheduled to the Act. By this regulation' (which follows, almost in terms, section 24 of the Act 25 Geo. 2, c. 28, which created the" Consolidated Fund " in 1751)theyare redeemable "atany timeon one year's notice, printed in the London Gazette, and affixed on the Royal Exchange in London, aud on repayment by Parliament, according to such notice, of the several sums, or any part thereof, for which the said several annuities, or either of them, are or is payable, by payments not leu than £500,000 at one time, in manner directed by any Act to be passed, and also on full payment of all arrears of the same annuities. Then, and not till then," proceeds the regulation with solemnity, "so much of the annuities as are attending on the principal sums so paid off shall cease, and be understood to be redeemed." It is not very easy to speculate upon the manner which would be directed "by an Act to be passed" for the redemption of part of a loan. All pnblio borrowers hitherto have, in redeeming, dealt with all the holders of a particular loan at once, giving them the option of taking their principali or receiving a lower rate of interest. We imagine, however, that the holders of any £500,000, or larger amount which Parliament might be pleased to pay off, could be selected at the absolute pleasure of Parliament, if it should not be deemed more convenient and equitable to proceed by a "drawing" for redemption. It may be mentioned that the holders of Consols amounted in 1885 to about 126,000 persons, and that the holders of "New Threes " amounted in the same year to about 85,000.

The Complaint of Mr. Lewis Lewisohn against the Russian Government involves some important questions of international law. Mr. Lewisohn is a native of Hamburg, of Jewish extraction, but he is a naturalized Englishman, and carries on business in London.
