CURRENT TOPICS.

It Does Not Clearly Appear from the Lord Chancellor's statement in introducing the Judicature Act Amendment Bill, on Tuesday, whether the Master of the Rolls is to cease to be a member of the High Court of Justice, so as to enable a new judge of first instance to be appointed in his place. "The Master of the Kolls," he said, "would be—he did not say transferred —but confined to the Court of Appeal." It is to be presumed, however, that it is intended to appoint a new judge. If this is not done, and the number of judges in the Chancery Division is to be practically reduced to four, this reduction, combined with the frequent absence on circuit of at least one of the four judges, will undoubtedly reproduce long lists of arrears.

It Is To Be Observed, that although the Lord Chancellor has doubts as to the power conferred by the Act of 1877 to appoint a successor to Mr. Justice Fry, he has already acted upon the power supposed to be given in appointing Mr. Justice Kay. We presume that the new Bill will contain an indemnity iu respect of that appointment.

The Conveyancing and Law of Property Bill, which, /it will be remembered, we recently discussed at consider

able length, has boen referred to a Select Committee of the House of Commons, which, although mainly composed of lawyers, comprises only four members of the bar of experience iu conveyancing matters. We are glad to observe, however, that four solicitor M.P.'s are to serve on the Committee, but among them we regret to miss the names of Mr. Dodds, M.P., and Mr. Gregory, M.P. It is very much to be hoped, but hardly to be expected, that the Committee will finish its labours in time for the Bill to pass this session. The Bill was considered with unusual care when it was first drafted, and we should have thought that it might have escaped the ordeal of a Select Committee.

A Notice respecting certain office regulations of the Chancery Pay Office, which we have been requested to publish, appears in another column. The principal change in the practice of the office which is effected by this notice consists in the alteration of the form of power of attorney for receipt of dividends hitherto in use, and the non-requirement, in future, of an affidavit of the execution of such powers. This will effect a saving of expense, and will not, it may be hoped, leave a door open tor mistakes. Certificates of funds in court ought to be issued on the day after being bespoken, instead of three days after, as provided in the notice; and transcripts of accounts might, it would be supposed, be made out in three days, instead of taking a week, as appears from the notice. We believe, however, that the times named in this notice are not such as will be strictly adhered to, but only indicate the maximum period in each case beyond which the delivery of certificates and transcripts will not be delayed.

It Were Heartily to be wished that the Lord Chancellor, freed from the temptation to ruin the fair creations of his own hand, would direct his attention to the task of completing the structure which he has done so large a part in building up. Ou the one hand we cannot look for any machinery which is likely to work more smoothly, easily, and steadily than the Court of Appeal as at present constituted. On the other hand, notwithstanding the variety and multiplicity, both of its judges and its business, the Queen's Bench Division has, since Lord Coleridge's reform, dealt with its work, on the whole, with great success. But there remains in force the curious arrangement by which it still acts in part as a Court of Appeal from itself ; and the other not less singular peculiarity, that only groups of from two to three judges at Westminster can do what one judge is competent to do at Lincoln's-inu, a peculiarity which goes even ta the extent that the same judge who has feared to sit alone at the one place during tho legal sittings, boldly encounters the responsibility of sitting alone at the other place during the vacation. For the loss of labour and of time produced by the latter peculiarity, it may be doubted whether any cure will be effectual but change of place. But the former might be, without difficulty, remedied by adding to the duties of the Court of Appeal that of hearing all appeals of whateverkiud, from every tribunal presided over by a single judge of tho High Court. That the number of the Court of Appeal would need to be increased is possible—perhaps even to the full number of nine originally contemplated; but the extra cost to the nation would be amply saved by relieving the judges of the High Court from the necossity of constantly sitting in double and treble strength, as a kind of passage to the Court
