recently expressed, that no suoh general authority < be delegated to the Chief Clerks.

All The Courts at Lincoln's-inn will rise for the long Vacation this day (Saturday).

Lord Justice Lush is making favourable progress towards recovery, and hopes to be able to leave town in the course of a week.

The Vacation Notice, which we publish elsewhere, and which is now for the first time promulgated, leaves unnamed the vacation judges, for the reasons which we have previously stated. Of course, unless and until some change is rnade in the judges of the High Court, Mr. Justice Cavb and Mr. Justice Kay will divide the vacation woik between them.

It Should Be Observed that the clause hitherto contained in vacation notices, enabling the Chief Clerks to give leave to parties to give short or other special notice of motion, has this year been omitted, in deference, we ■believe, to the opinion of the Master of the Rolls,

Much Inconvenience has been caused of late by the unpunctuality of certain judges of the Chancery Division in attending at chambers. When it is announced that a learned judge will be at his chambers at three o'clock, it is not to the advantage of the practitioners who have summonses on the list that he should continue to sit in court until four o'clock. Counsel and solicitors are kept idle during the hour or more of waiting, which of itself is a considerable grievance; but a still greater is the fact that the time for transaction of the chamber business is seriously curtailed.

The Attention of practitioners should be directed to the amending order, which we print elsewhere, as to fees and percentages to be taken in the Supreme Court by means of stamps. The principal feature of this order consists in a direction that certain fees shall only be paid by means of impressed stamps, and not by adhesive stamps. The documents which are required to be stamped by impressed stamps are (1) all writs of summons for the commencement of an action; (2) the praecipe on sealing concurrent, renewed, or amended, writs; (3) judgments or decrees or decretal orders, whether on the original hearing of a cause or on further consideration, including causes commenced by summons at chambers, and orders on the hearing of a special case or petition, and orders by the Appeal Court; (4) petitions; (5) petitions for orders of course; (6) orders of course on petitions of right; (7) orders for a commission on a petition of right; (8) judges' fiats; (9) certificates on a reference to a master; (10) recognizances and bail pieces; (11) commitments; (12) applications to produce judges' notes, and (13) transcripts of the Chancery Paymaster's accounts.

It Appears probable, from the Attorney-General's statement in the House of Commons a few days ago, that the patronage clause of the Judicature Bill will be withdrawn. The Lord Chancellor has confessed that the matter has occasioned him great perplexity, and it is to be hoped that before another session a more satisfactory scheme may bo devised for dealing with this important question. The long-delayed return, showing the amount of patronage now theoretically vested in the three common law chiefs has been issued, and it shows that the existing patronage relates to eighteen masterships, with salaries varying from £2,000 iu the cases of the senior master (who is also Queen's Remembrancer), and the master who acts as registrar of judgments, down to £1,200. The patronage also at present includes 93 clerkships in the Central Office— viz., 17 first-class clerks, 42 second-class clerks, and 34 third-class clerks, with salaries varying from £600 down to £100. It is clear that this amount of patronage is not a matter to be dealt with hastily at the fag end of a session. The efficiency of the Central Office is a matter of vital concern to the public, and this is in no small degree dependent on the decision which may be arrived at as to the I

We Observe that, in clause 14, the Judicature Bill speaks of " the Act of the sixth and seventh years of her Majesty, chapter eighteen." In the Representation of the People Act, 1867 (30 & 31 Vict. c. 102, s. 34), we read of " the Act of the sixth "Victoria, chapter eighteen " ; but in the Parliamentary Electors Registration Act, 1368 (31 & 32 Vict. o. 58), the full expression "Act passed in tho session of the sixth and seventh years of the rsign of her present Majesty, chapter eighteen, intituled,' An Act to, &o.,' " is used. The draftsman of the Parliamentary and Municipal Registration Act, 1878 (41 & 42 Vict, c. 26), has directed that the Acts referred to in that Act by short titles, " may be cited for all purposes by those titles respectively," and also that the term "Parliamentary Registration Act, 1843," "means the Act of the session of the sixth and seventh years of the reign of her present Majesty, chapter eighteen." We may hope, therefore, that some friendly amending hand may read this very proper "Bhort title" into the Judicature Bill. But in cases where there is no statutory short title, what is the proper yearly numeration of an Act of Parliament? We believe the rule to be this. If the Act passes before the anniversary of the accession of the Sovereign, it has a single number; if after, it has the double number. The present Sovereign ascended the throne on the 20th of June. The Parliamentary Registration Act, 1843, receiving the Royal assent on the 31st of May, was rightly called, when first,issued by the Queen's printers, 6 Vict. c. 18, for it was not certain at that time that the session would extend beyond the 20th of June. When, however, the session has overlapped that day, how ought the Aot which passed before it to be printed or described? Here the practice is diversified. The statutes themselves, as we have seen, sometimes follow one mode of citation, sometimes another. The Statute Law Revisers print the double year in the Chronological Table of the Statutes irrespective of the preeise date at which an Act was passed. The text-books and the Law Reports Digest appear usually to number each Aot as numbered at first, singly or doubly as the case may be, and so does the Law Reports' edition of the Statutes, but so do not the Queen's printers themselves (in the headings to each page) when they come to issue a whole volume of statutes. There is something to be paid for each mode of numeration. If the single year is retained, we get a mode of fixing the date—i.e., we know that the Act was passed before the date of the accession of the Sovereign. On the other hand, the single employment of the two years (6 & 7) for both sets of statutes obviates the necessity for the double search in an index. Clearly the most convenient mode is to drop the "year of the Queen" altogether and to describe by the year of the calendar, as was recommended by tho Select Committee on Acts of Parliament many years ago, giving every Act a statutory short title. We have got considerably beyond such descriptions as "thacte of Parliament or statute made in the fyve and twenty yere of the reigne of the most noble Kinge of famous memorye, King Edwarde Thirde" (1M. St. 1, c. 1, s. 2), or "the statute made in the Parliament begun and holden at Westminster the fourth daye of November in the thyrd yere of the raigne of our late Sovraigne lord, Kynge Edwarde the Sixt" (13 Eliz. s. 6); but it is plain that our modern mode of describing Acts of Parliament still leaves much to be desired.

Exclusive Of the provisions relating to the Court of Appeal, the disposal of patronage, and the formal interlineations as to salaries and pensions, the Judicature Bill, as brought from the House of Lordson the 25th of last month, appears to contain five amendments. These may all be described as of a minor character, but it may be as well to note them in their first inception. The first amendment merely provides that the President of the Probate, Ac, Division " shall not be entitled to any precedence over any existing judge to which he would not have been entitled as a judge of the Supreme Court of Judicature if ibis Act had not passed." If this clause, as amended,

should lead to hastening the day when this awkwardly styled division shall be "reduced," so much the better. That it ought to be merged in the Chancery Division without delay is abundantly clear. The next amendment is a new substantive clause. It provides that " in any case of urgency arising during the absence from illness or any other cause, any one judge of the High Court who may consent to do so may officiate for any other in hearing any application for an injunction or other interlocutory order." Upon this the only remark we have to make is, that it is so desirable a provision that it may very well be extended, so as to allow the substituted judge to act for his brother to say extent, and in hearing any kind of application. It might be inconvenient that the interlocutory order should be made by the deputy, and the final hearing take place before the principal. The third amendment is obviously a desirable one. It provides (clause 13) that an election judge may continue the hearing of .. petition or other pending matter although his year of office may have run out. The amendment is, we believe, suggested by the curious facta of a Worcester election petition some fifteen months ago, in which the then Mr. Justice Lush was sitting as election judge beyond his year, but it so happened that the awkward legal point as towhether he had jurisdiction or not to give judgment, never came to be argued. This amendment suggests the question whether it would not be well to apply to all judges and all cases that provision of section 60 of 15 & 16 Vict. c. 80, by which a retiring Lord Chancellor is enabled to give judgment within six weeks after his retirement. The next amendment is a well-meant attempt to remedy the defect in the present constitution of the Court for Crown Cases Reserved, to which we recently drew attention in connection with this Bill, by reason of the requirement of section 47 of the Act of 1873, that the Lord Chief Justice of England shall, always be a member of that court. A new clause (19) now provides that the Lord Chief Justice shall always be one of the judges " unless by writing under his hand, or by the certificate in writing of his medical attendant, it shall appear that he is prevented by illness or otherwise from being present," in which caso " the presenoe of the said Lord Chief Justioe shall not be necessary." That the Lord Chief Justice should be present if possible is in accordance with sound judicial traditions. He is the chief criminal judge of England, and his attendance is peculiarly desirable. But is it not a mistake to define so precisely the grounds on whioh he may be absentf As the clause now stands, a court constituted without him has no jurisdiction in law unless all its conditions are satisfied. To leave it as it is might give rise to " error," and we should think a directory clause, such as " It shall be the duty of the Lord Chief Justioe," it,, would satisfy the necessities of the case. Or perhaps it might be enough simply to put the two senior puisnes of the Queen's Bench Division in the place of the two extinguished chiefs.

Another Amendment (clause 24), reciting that there is no power to appoint as district registrars persons other than those designated by the existing Judicature Acts—that is (see section 60 of the Act of 1873), registrars of county courts, or locsl courts, or prothonotaries—enacts that whenever "it shall appear to the Lord Chancellor, with the concurrence of the Treasury, that from the nature and amount of the business to be transacted it is expedient that the office should be conferred upon a person not so qualified ss aforesaid, it shall be lawful for the Lord Chancellor,, with the concurrence of the Treasury, to appoint to inch office any barrister-at-law of not less than five y*»n' standing, or any solicitor of the Supreme Court of not less than five years' standing." We note the absence of the ordinary requirement, that the barristers or solicitors in question should be "in actual practice," but as it i*' very difficult to say what that requirement means, we we do not see why it should be insisted on. The amendment is probably made in anticipation of an extension of the jurisdiction, and increase of business, of district registries. The proposal that barristers shall be eligible for the post has excited strong opposition on the part of the law societies, and we certainly think it is unjust that local solicitors should be deprived of the kind of presumptive claim which was given to them by the Judicature Act, 1873.

It Has Been Suggested that litigation promoted by such bodies as the Church Association, is within the Statutes of Maintenance. If this be the law, those who advance money for the conduct of the defences of impugned clergymen would be equally liable to punishment. But we do not think that the law is as has been suggested. It was decided in Tiadale v. Bedington (Cro. Eliz. 594) tbat an action does not lie for maintenance in the spiritual court. The report, which is very short, is in these words: "Action upon the Statute of Maintenance, for maintaining a suit in the spiritual court. WarBurton moved that this action lay not, for the statute of 1 Bic. 2, c. 4, whereupon this action is founded, is to be intended only of maintaining suits in the courts of common law; and upon this view of the statute the whole court was of that opinion, and willed him to demur." And it is added that " Drew remembered a case in the court, in Easter Term, 37 Eliz., Conatantine v. Barna, whereupon it was ruled that no action lay for maintaining a suit in the spiritual court."

On Monday last, in the House of Commons, Sir B. Cross suggested that the Supreme Court of Judioature Bill '. should be divided into two parts, one having reference to the reconstitution of the court consequent on the removal of the Master of the Rolls to the Court of Appeal, and the other dealing with the question of legal patronage, which last, he thought, might be postponed for the present session. The Attorney-General said that it was regarded as essentially necessary to provide for the strengthening of the Court of Appeal. The question of patronage, though not so pressing, was one of great importance, but it would not be unduly put forward for discussion if some interim arrangement could be made-for dealing with it.

On the 28th inst., in the House of Commons, Mr. Stanley Leighton called attention to the want of information with reference to the "Snitors' Funds" in chanoery, and moved that the future lists of unclaimed money be issued with cross references triennially, stating the amount of fund in court, with the names and last-known addresses of persons supposed to be entitled ; together with the date of the last decree. He said there was a large amount of money belonging to many persons who did not claim it, because there was no sufficient publication of list of names of those entitled, who were therefore kept in ignorance of their rights. In this way the spirit of the Act of Parliament on the subject was violated, and so much secrecy was maintained that persons were not able to claim the money that was due to them. Lists onght to be published every three years. They were dne in 1873, 1876, and 1879, and the fourth was dne in 1882. But only two lists had been published, and it had required much pressure to obtain these. It was said to be the fault of the Financial Secretary of the Treasury, who wonld not provide the Chancery Paymaster with the staff that was required to get out the lists. Those that had been published were not as useful as they might be, for, although they professed to be alphabetical, names were not to be found under their initial letters. He concluded by moving the resolution. Lord F. Cavendish was understood to say that arrangements had been made by which delay in the publication of future lists would be avoided. The form in whioh the lists were published was settled by Lord Cranworth, when Lord Chancellor, and the matter was in the hands of the Lord Chancellor for the time being. Those who were responsible for looking after these funds, in the interest of suitors and of the public, were of opinion that it was not desirable to make some of the changes suggested, and for these reasons it was his duty to resist the motion. The motion was negatived.


Mr. Justice Fry's startling decision in Cockburn v. Edwarda {ante, p. 117, L. R. 16 Ch. D. 393) came before the Court of Appeal on Tuesday, and a note of the result will be found elsewhere. It will be remembered thajs the facts of the case were that a solicitor who had negotiated for a client a first mortgage to a third person for £450, took a second mortgage of the property to himself; to secure £50, the balance of the sum required by the client. The second mortgage, which was prepared by the solicitor mortgagee, contained a power of sale without any limitation on its exercise; and the second mortgagee, without notice to the mortgagor, and without any interest being in arrear, sold the property under this power for £630. It was ulleged by the plaintiff that the sale was at an undervalue, but Mr. Justice Fry thought that the price was not inadequate. He held, however, that the defendant ought not to have allowed the plaintiff to execute the mortgage "in such au unusual form" without fully explaining the effect of it to him, and that the onus was on the defendant to show that he had given that full explanation. Upon the evidence he thought that the defendant had not discharged this onus, and he had failed to prove tbat he had given notice to the plaintiff of his intention to sell the property. Consequently, the plaintiff was entitled to judgment for damages, together with the costs of the action as between party and party; and the damages must include the following heads—(1) the costs of the sale of the property; (2) the costs of re-investing the £630 in the purchase of a similar property; (3) the increased value of the property (there being some evidence that the property in the neighbourhood had considerably improved in value); (4) the extra costs of the action beyond the party and party costs. The Court of Appeal have affirmed the decision as regards the liability of the defendant, but have differed from it as regards the measure of damages laid down by Mr. Justice Fry. We are not concerned to discuss the latter point further than to express our surprise that the learned judge could have fallen into the errors corrected by the Court of Appeal. But as to the general question of the liability of the defendant in the recent case, it seems to us that there is a great deal to be said against the view adopted by the Court of Appeal.

The question of the defendant's liability obviously depended on whether it is or is not usual for second mortgages to contain an unrestricted power of sale. If it is usual, then the solicitor was not wrong in inserting such a power in his mortgage. Now, if this question is to be settled by the practice of conveyancers in drawing first mortgages, the answer would be plain. Except in cases where the security is very insufficient, or sometimes in mortgages to secure current accounts at bankers, we should say that mortgages drawn in conveyancers' chambers always contain the restrictive proviso. But, as a matter of fact, by far the greater number of mortgages, and especially of second mortgages, are drawn by solicitors; hence it is the practice of solicitors whioh must settle the question. We are satisfied, from facts within our own knowledge, and from inquiries whioh we have made, that in a very large number of oases the restrictive proviso is omitted, even in first mortgages. We have no doubt that most of our readers are acquainted with lithographed forms of mortgage, in constant use in large offices in various parts of the country, whioh do not contain the proviso. It is to be observed, also, that in Mr. Davidson's Concise Precedents—a work whioh is, deservedly, held in high esteem in solicitors' offices—a note is appended to the proviso (10th ed., p. 149) pointing out that "this proviso is, in most cases, of little practical value, and may be omitted; for a mortgagee is not disposed to sell the property if he can get his money by demanding it." In second mortgages we are confident that the omission of the proviso is usual, at all
