A Controversy has been raging at Manchester with

reference to the amount of income-tax which should be

deducted for the December half-year from half-yearly

payments of chief rents, interest, and dividends of public

companies. The Inland Revenue Act of last session (43

& 44 Vict. c. 20), s. 51, provides, it will be remem-

bered, that—

"For determining the amount which may be deducted by

any person liable to pay any rent, interest, annuity, or other

annual payment in the course of the said year [commencing

oa the 6th of April, 1880], on making the payment, where

any Buoh payment shall have been made prior to the passing

of this Act [».«., August 12], and duty at the rate of five-

pence only shall have been deduoted therefrom, the duty

shall be deemed to be payable at the rate of fivepenee for the

first half of the said year, and at the rate of sevenpence for

the other half of the said year."

The question whioh has been raised is, in cases in which

5d. in the pound only was deducted on the 24th of June

last from half-yearly payments then due, what is the
rate lawful to be deducted on December 25 by way of
adjustment P The Inland Revenue Office having been
appealed to in the matter, has replied that, " if income-
tax at the rate of 5d. in the pound only was deducted
in respect of the quarter ended June, 1880, the Inland
Revenue Act, 1880, e. 51, provides that the duty shall
be deemed to be payable at the rate of 5d. in the pound

for the quarter to Michaelmas, and at the rate of 7d. in

the pound for the other half-year. It follows that as a

payment for the half-year to Christmas, 1880, will com-

prise one quarter at 5d. and one quarter at 7d., the

deduction will be at 6d. in the pound on the whole, and

that 7d. in the pound will have to be deducted in respect
of the quarter to Lady-day, 1881."

The Provision of section 56 of the Judicature Act,
1873, which enables the High Court or Court of
Appeal to "call in the aid of one or more assessors
specially qualified, and try and hear such cause or matter
wholly or partly with the assistance of such assessors,"
was, we believe for the first time, put in force in a
common law division last Wednesday, when Mr.
Justice Williams obtained the aid of a civil engineer
as assessor in trying a question whether certain machinery
for the defendants' rice mills had been supplied by the
defendants in accordance with their contract. Both
parties agreed in desiring that thepremises and machinery
should be viewed by the judge and the assessor. It is
curious that the Judicature Acts and Rules apparently

contain no provision as to a view or inspection of prop-

erty by a judge or his assessor, although ord. 36, r. 30,

specially provides for the case of a view by a referee

and his assessors. The referee "may, subject to the

order of the court or a judge, hold the trial at, or adjourn
it to, any place which he may deem most convenient, and
have any inspection or view, either by himself or with
his assessors (if any), which he may deem expedient,
for the better disposal of the controversy before him."
The provisions of section 114 of the Common Law Pro-
ceedure Aot, 1852, and of section 58 of the Common
Law Procedure Act, 1854, with reference to a view by
a jury are still in force, and Mr. Justice Williams
pointed out that while the decision of the jury, founded on a view, could not, in the absence of an order for a new trial, be the subject of an appeal, his own decision could, in the case before him, be appealed against. Should the case therefore be carried to the Court of Appeal, the Lords Justices will, of course, be enabled to avail themselves of the assistance of assessors, and would also doubtless, if they thought it necessary, view the machinery in company with their assessors.

Empiotebs Ani> Workmen in collieries have already shown an inclination to contract themselves out of the provisions of the Employers' Liability Act, the Lancashire and Cheshire Conl Owners Association and the Miners' Permanent Belief Society having appointed a joint committee to consider the desirability of effecting a mutual arrangement as to the mode of relief and compensation in cases of accident. The committee, after taking the opinion of counsel, have in effect reported that it is competent for employers and employed to agree for such a valuable consideration to the employed as will enable payment to be made by the Miners' Permanent Belief Society in all cases of accident in lieu of the legal remedies provided by the recent Act, but that such arrangements must be mutual, not only between the employers and the persons employed by tbem, but also between the miners and the drawers or contractors and the persons whom they employ. It is proposed that the owners of collieries in the district should continue to subscribe to the society as honorary members, their contributions being raised from fifteen per cent, to twenty-five per cent, upon the miners' contributions, with power to the managers of the society to discontinue, or refuse to establish, a local agency at any colliery the owner of which neglects to pay his full subscription or refuses to become an honorary member of the society, and also to require an increase in the subscription of the proprietor of any colliery where the number of accidents exceeds the average of those at all the collieries in the district in proportion to the number of persons employed. Every person employed at such collieries is therefore to undertake, for himself and his representatives, in consideration of the payments by the employers to the society, to lock to the funds of the society alone for any injury sustained in the course of his employment, whether resulting in death or not, and that neither the employer nor any person employed by him shall be liable in respect of negligence which occasions an injury. There certainly appears to be nothing in the Act which would prevent such a mutual arrangement as is now contemplated, and it will be interesting to see whether a similar plan is adopted in other trades.

The Case of Bird v. Harris (29 W. E. 45), would seem to show that the rule laid down in Wright v. Castle (3 Mer. 12), that a solicitor, in the exercise of a general authority given him by his client, may defend proceedings, but cannot institute proceedings without a special written authority for the purpose, is not so well known as it ought to be. "It is settled," said Lord Eldon, in the above case, that "if the plaintiff denies, and the solicitor asserts, authority to have been given, and there is nothing but assertion against assertion, the court will say that the solicitor ought to have secured himself by having an authority in writing ; and that, not having done so, he must abide by the consequences of his neglect." And in Allen v. Bone (4 Beav. 493), Lord Langdale said that " it is the duty of a solicitor to obtain a written authority from his client before he commences a suit. If circumstances are urgent, and he is obliged to commence proceedings without such authority, he should obtain it as soon afterwards as he can. An authority may, however, be implied where the client acquiesces in and adopts the proceedings;

but if the solicitor's authority is disputed, it is for him to prove it, and if he has no written authority, and there is nothing but assertion against assertion, the court will treat him as unauthorized, and be must abide by the consequences of his neglect." In the recent case an order to attend proceedings under an administration decree had been obtained by a solicitor without the written authority of his client, although there was evidence that the solicitor had been verbally instructed by the client to apply for the order. The client denied giving the authority, and the order was discharged, but no order was made as to costs.

The Days when judges' chambers were known as "the bear garden " had, it was hoped, come to an end when the removal was effected to a more convenient building; but it is to be feared that a little of the " bear garden" spirit still survives among the frequenters of the hall which forms the ante-room to the judges' chambers in the Boyal Courts of Justice. In a conspicuous place on the wall of this hall there may be (or not long ago there might have been) seen a huge blotch of ink caused by the hurling of an inkstand by one solicitor's clerk at another. Not merely the wall but the face of the opponent was besmeared with the ink. We believe that, after some trouble, the name of the offender was discovered, and a sum was demanded for the damage caused to the wall; and six months after the offence had been committed this sum was paid. What action the person whose face was inked may have taken we have been unable to ascertain.


To those who think of law only as a system of rules, and of its administration only as the application of those rules by a rigid logical deduction, it may seem strange that a great judicial post should have been occupied so long, and with such well-deserved applause, by one whose most striking qualities were an acute sensibility and that brilliant and picturesque genius which lores rather to paint things in the round, than to sketch them in the narrow geometrical patterns of legal forms and definitions. But this would be to forget that law itself is made to serve the needs of the world it regulates; that its efficient administration needs a clear and. just appreciation of the facts it is to be applied to, and that the successful investigation of those facts is an. essential preliminary to a just determination. An exact and careful lawyer who is wanting in imagination, insight, and knowledge of the world, may not only fail to discover the facts, but may misapprehend the beariug upon them of the rule, of which he has no full and pregnant, but only a dry and technical, knowledge; and the same defect may vitiate even his purely legal reason, ing; so that his administration of the law is perverted into legal injustice, and his very law becomes a fetter and a snare. On the other hand, these qualities are in their turn apt to mislead their possessor, and to draw him aside from the path of law into an arbitrary and fanciful equity, which baffles reasonable expectation, and makes what ought to be a clear and settled order into a Lesbian rule. They ore valuable only, when they co-exist with a firm logical basis in the understanding, which is capable of apprehending, receiving into itself, and retaining, formal and systematic propositions; but 1 in the perfect co-ordination of these opposite qualities there exist the elements of the highest judicial faculty, j It cannot be doubted that in the late Lord Chief Justice . the imaginative and the logical powers were combined in a very eminent degree. It is, indeed, certain that the former had the predominance; but its range was so high that, if balanced by an equal strength in the reasoning faculty, he would, it may fairly be said, have Dcen sur. passed by no judge of any age or country.
