LEGAL NEWS.

The fDnernl of the late Sir John Karslake, Q.C., took place at the Kensal-green Cemetery, the service being read by the Rev. .Mr. Karslake, a brother of the deceased. Among tlioso present were Mr. E. K. Karslake, Q.C., Mr. P. K^lake, Mr. W. Karslake, Mr. C. P. Butt, Q.C., M.P, Mr. Frederick Waller, Q.C., Mr. Johnson, Q.C., and Mr. Collins, Q.C. There was a large attendance of members of the bar. Lord Coleridge, writing to the Times, says of Sir John Karslake : Those only whose fate it was to be with Sir John Karslake day after day and week after week for years, either as opposing advocate or in the intercourse of private friendship, can fully appreciate his extraordinary power. His knowledge of his profession, gathered by a vigorous and retentive mind from a legal training of unusual length, was, as far

as my experience goes, unparalleled. This gave him from the very beginning a confidence and certainty which very few men attain after years of practioe. And the same thoroughness with which he knew his profession always marked his knowledge of fail cases. lie was never at fault; he read everything about his case; he forgot nothing; and his strong sense and unerring judgment enabled him to use, with wonderful effect, bis great knowledge. He was an oppressive antagonist, because, mentally and physically, he was so strong. At the end of a long day, in times when judges sat on to hours which exhausted jnries and occasionally disgusted witnesses, Sir John Karslake would show no symptom of fatigue; his observation as acute, his resources as much at his command, his voice as strong as in the early morning. Bat if he was an oppressive antagonist, he was an antagonist whom it was impossible njt to respect and to admire. Indirectness in word or act was simply impossible to him I do not think he could have been dishonourable if he had tried; and he certainly never tried. Two examples of his fine character—instances, I dare say, of many other like acts—came under my own observation. In two cases, separated by a considerable Bpace of time, a verdict had been given against the client he represented, and a new trial had been ordered. In both cases he thought that he had himself had something to do with the first result—whether he had, in fact, or not, I do not know; but it may, perhaps, have been so; for the very greatest men, at least in onr profession, sometimes make mistakes; at any rate, he thought so. In both cases he refused to appear upon the second trial, and sent the client to another counsel, io both cases to the same counsel. To him Sir John Karslake sent all his notes, imparted all his knowledge and experienoes, advised with him, helped him unsparingly, and strove as hard for the success of another man as he could have striven for his own. It may be said that a generous and high-minded man would, of oourse, so act. Perhaps; but at least his conduct was that of a generous and high-minded man.

The London, Edinburgh, and Glasgow Assurance Company (Limited), announce the i-snc of 150,000 shares of £1 each, of which, it is said, 51,538 have already been applied for, and 50,000 have been allotted.

CURRENT TOPICS.

Ttbiqcb valibus occurras. While Mr. Serjeant Ballantine is understood to be preparing for publication reminiscences of his career, which it is hoped will include a translation of the congratulatory verses in Gnjerati and Marathi which were recited upon his entry to Baroda, we hear that ono of his brethren of the inner bar is engaged upon a metrical version of the Psalms of David.

The Discission at the Brighton meeting on Bills of Sale was particularly well-timed, and the course adopted of formulating in resolutions the opinion of the meeting cannot be too highly commended. We cannot help regretting, however, that the suggestion for the repeal of the 20th section of the Act of 1878 was not adopted. Mr. Daniel, Q.G, in his answer to the Lord Chancellor's circular, put the matter, as it seems to us, in its true light. Under the old law, he said, "the interests of bond fide creditors were to some extent protected in bankruptcy through the operation of the order and disposition dostrine. Under the Act of 1878 that protection has been taken away, and the money-lender under his bill of sale is now absolutely secure, and enables the debtor to set his other creditors at defiance." Mr. Milleb, in his excellent remarks in the course of the discussion at Brighton, affirmed that of the 200 bills of sale which are given in each working day of the year not less than 150 are the result of this 20tli section. What necessity was there to improve the security of a bill of sale, as was done by this section? We print this week a letter from a well-informed and experienced correspondent which seems to us to contain a suggestion well worthy of consideration—viz., that it should be rendered illegal for a trader to grant a bill of sale on stock-in-trade and articles in which he deals in the ordinary course of his trade.

These Seems to be an impression abroad that the case of Debenham v. Mellon (29 W. R, 141, L. B. 6 App. 31), has laid down a principle upon which all questions relating to the authority of the wife to pledge the husband's credit may be readily decided, and we have heard of some rather summary decisions in the county courts based upon that case. It may be worth while to point out that there was really nothing in that case which

fairly entitled the plaintiff to suppose that the wife had authority to pledge the husband's credit except the mere status of marriage, which it is clear is not enough, though the retail tradesman's view always is that it should be. There are, no doubt, cases on the othei side of the line which are abundantly clear. If the husband has done anything in the course of the cohabitation from which it is a fair inference that he knew of and assented to his wife pledging his credit, Bb, for instance, if he allowed her to manage the household and paid debts contracted by her in the course of suoh management, such as debts to butchers, bakers, and grocers, he would be liable for debts of a similar nature; if he paid bills contracted by the wife for clothing he would be liable for debts contracted for clothing; and, in accordance with the general principle of the law of agency, a retractation of the authority would not be effective unless communicated to the tradesmen. Again, assuming a retractation of authority to be material, a jury may, from the conduct of the husband, be oftentimes justified in disbelieving in the existence of such retractation, though alleged. But there are many conceivable cases between the classes which fall well within or well without the line. The sort of case we are imagining is one where there is more than the mere fact of cohabitation, and the wife does manage the establishment, but the husband makes her a sufficient allowance for the expenses of such establishment, and forbids her to pledge his credit beyond such allowance. We should think, iu prudently-managed households, this case is very common. But in such a case every husband knows that things are not actually paid for on delivery. A cortaia credit is always given, even if but a week. The wife, in such a case, acts as the husband's agent in incurring and paying the debts out of the allowance made to her. The tradesman, no doubt, would in such a case debit the husband with the goods, and would receive payment from the wife as the agent of the husband. Suppose, after this course of dealing has gone on for some time, a debt is incurred which the wife does not defray out of the allowance given to her by the husband, having spent that on some other purpose. Would, in such a case, proof of the real circumstances as between the husband and wife be a defence to an aotion against the husband? We do not think the case quite clear, though, from much that is said, especially by Lord Blackburn, in Debenham v. Mellon, it would seem that the answer ought to be in the affirmative. But applying the ordinary principles of the law of principal and agent to the question, it does not seem free from doubt. Suppose a principal were to employ aa agent to conduct a business in his name, giving him a certain sum for expenses, but forbidding him to pledge his principal's credit beyond that sum, could the principal thus shield himself from liability? It may be that the case of a business of which the principal takes the profit is different. It might be urged, however, that the husband having allowed the wife to do acts importing a general authority to manage the household, could not affect the tradesman who gave credit on the strength of such appearance of authority by a private arrangement with the wife in limitation of such authority unknown to the tradesman. On the whole, it seems to us that the case of Debenham v. Mellon may perhaps have still left open various nice questions on the law with respeot to this subject.
