LORD JUSTICE JAMES.

At tlie sitting of the Court of Appeal on Tuesday, Lord Justice Bkamwell said: I am Benior of thosewho were in tbe habit of sitting with him, and I think expression ought to be given to the grant, and, in my judgment, irreparable loss which the public have sustained in his death. He possessed every quality and accomplishment that a judge needed. He had a very great intellect, at Odch keen and profound. He w s a consummate lawyer, thoroughly imbued with legal principles. He was a man of wast experience, not merely in tbe law, but in those things which make a man what is commonly called a man of the world, fitted to deal with the affairs of the world. He had but one desire when he took his seat upou the bench—that was, that justice should be done according to rigl t. It was said nf him, and truly, that he was rapid in the formation of his opinions and confident in tbe expression of them, and so he was, and so a man of his ability bad a ripht to be; but 1 can say this of him, that a mote candid man never lived, nor one more ready to renounce an opinion, though he had given expression to it in tbe most confident way, if he thought it was wrong. I should like to read a letter written to me by one of my brethren, and I read it because, inasmuch as it is certain that he never thought it would be published, it is a genuine expression of his opinion, an opinion in which wo all agree. He says :—" When I learnt to know what a grand old man he was, wbat a gigantio memory he had, what a large and comprehensive talent, what a freedom from all technicality and prejudice, what a firm knowledge of principles of law, what an intense resolution that justice should be done, and what a firm, generous mind he had, I esteemed him and respected him as much as ever was in me. I suffer great pain from his loss." And so do we all. We have lost a valuable friend and an invaluable associate.

The Attobnet-genekal (tbe whole of tbe bar rising with him) said: My Lords, it is a gad reflection that within tbe last few months—since tbe commencement of tbe legal year—I have had on four occasions to express, on behalf of the members of tbe bar, their deep regret for the loss of eminent judges, and now a fifth name is added to that roll which records the list of tbe distinguished dead. It is just fifty years since Sir William James entered npon onr profession. During those fifty years he stood conspicuously among ns ; at tbe bar and on tbe bench he passed his life surrounded by eminent men and gifted colleagues, end from them all he ever gained the acknowledgment that his duty bad been right well done. During that time many changes have been effeoted in our legal procedure. In conceiving most of them and administering tbe law under many of them Sir William James took sbare and part. Thirty years ago he was a member of that Commission whose labours effeoted great and beneficial changes in tbe proceedings of the Court of Chancery. Ooe of your lordships—Lord Juatioe Bramwell —can bear witness to tbe strength of the colleague who mainly Bhared with him tbe responsibility of framing that report on which tbe Judicature Aot of 1873 was based, And others of us oan tell bow the last days of health left to him were employed in framing suggestions for the still further adaptation of our prooedure to the necessities of an altered time. My Lords, before yon, who were his daily associates, it is almost unbecoming that I should bear testimony to tbe great worth of the late Lord Justice ; yon know better than we that, althongb full of years, his faculties atill remained untoncbed and unimpaired. Tbe facta of the most intricate case required no recoid, except on the tablets of bis memory. His powerful mind was ever ready quickly to form and strongly to express those judgments tbe effeot of which will remain behind him. I trust, my Lords, yon will forgive me for saying that, while this Court of Appeal has gained the foil and perfect confidence both of the pnblio mid onr profession, no jndge has contributed more to the high position it ereupies than be whose great loss we bave now to regret. But in his high qualities as a judge tbe sense of his worth as a man must not be lost. Those will mourn him most who knew bim best. Within the circle of bis home and friendships that charm which can only be found in the combination of a great mind and good: heart diew all closely to him; but beyond and outside

these others stand, and for them (I mean the members of tbe bar) I desire to give expression to the deep sense of tbe loss all sustain by the death of Bo great a judge and so good a man.

In the Rolls Court tbe Master Of The Bolls said:—leannot proceed with the business of the day without expressing the deep grief which I feel at the misfortune which has fallen upon the profession and the publio by the death during the last short vacation of my friend and late colleague in the Appeal Court, Lord Justice Jamas. I cannot say the event was to me wholly unexpected. I have been for a long time aware that his valuable life hung upon a thread which might snap at any moment; but when it did occur it came upon me with a leeling of painful surprise. Only about a fortnight ago, when 1 sit with him in the Appeal Court, he appeared to me to be in his usual health and spirits, and when I left him 1 did not think that that was the last time he would Bit in a court of justice. He was, no doubt, in many respecta fortunate in his death; he Buffered but for a short time from illness; he died in harness and in full possession of all his faculties. Notwithstanding his advanced age, his eyes were sot dimmed nor his hearing dull, I,is attention never flagged, nor did his memory fail him. Of bis eminent qualities as a judge it is diffioult to speak too highly. He had a large liberal mind, unfettered by pediatry and untrammelled by technicalities. His intellect was clear and powerful, and he was distinguished alike by quickness of perception tad rapidity of decision. Hia mastery of equitable principles was thorough. His long and wide experience, and bis rapid apprehension of every argument addressed to him, enabled him almost always to lay down the law with fulness and precision, and all who ever listened to one of his judgments in a heavy and important case could fail to be impressed with tbe remarkable ease with which he unravelled the most complicated facts, and the lucidity with which be expounded the principles of law which applied to the cue before him. We owe to him a debt of gratitude, also, for the part which he took in relieving us from the vast and intricate, though refined, network of rules of pleading and practice which for so many years in the Court ol Chancery obscured and impeded, and sometimes altogether stopped, tho course of justice. And I may mention that almost opto his last hour he was engaged in devising farther improvements in our procedure and in endeavouriag to diminish the delay and expense which are to some extent, no doubt, inseparable from all legal procedure. In short, I may truly say that in deploring his decease we lament tho loss of a consummate lawyer and a good judge.

Mr. Boxbuuoh, Q.C., as the leader of the bar in this court, said:—I believe there is not a member of the bar who does not fully appreciate and reciprocate the sentiments which your lordship has expressed. No ooe who has witnessed the career of the late Lord Justice as I hare done for so many jears oan fail to be indeed struck with the troth of every remark which your Lordship has made. We all feel the loss most sensibly, and I am quite sure that not only the profession but the public has sustained in the death of the late Lot d Justice a very grievous loss.
