these offieers comprise what may fairly be described aa the whole machinery of a court, sitting daily from eleven till four, it is essential to the convenience of practitioners that abundant accommodation should be provided. Since the plans of the new building were made, the staff of each chief clerk has been increased, and it is to be feared that the probability of such increase was not kept in mind at the time the building was planned.

It Has Been Btated in some provincial journals that Mr W F. Robinson, Q.C., will succeed the late Mr. Little, Q-C, as Vice-Chaucellor of the Duchy of Lancaster. We have reason to believe that Mr. Robinson Is not a candidate for the vacant post.

The Board Of Inland Revenue has altered tho regulations as to the claims for the allowance of spoiled and useless stamps. Applications for the allowance of spoiled stamps may now be made by the owner of the stamps, or a clerk or agent nominated for that purpose by him, on every day, except Saturday, up to three, and on Saturday up to one, at Somerset House, and at Winchester-buildings on every day in the week, except Saturday, from eleven to three. The Board of Inland Revenue state that arrangements will shortly be made for further facilitating the allowance of spoiled stamps and expediting the issue of stamps in lieu of the same. These concessions (says a correspondent) are the result of suggestions submitted to Mr. Gladstone as to the unfair way in which the former regulations worked, and will cause general satisfaction, it having been the practice of many persons to waive small claims rather than take the trouble or incur the expense of making an application for allowance.

The Transfer of fifty causes from the list of the Master of the Rolls to Mr. Justice Fky, for the purpose of hearing only; and of thirty causes from the list of Vice-Chancellor Hall, and twenty causes from the list of Vice-chancellor Mallns, to Vice-Chaucellor Bacon, will be published at the close of the present week.

It H Understood that some dissatisfaction is felt by the chief clerks at the limited extent of the accommodation proposed to be afforded them in the Royal Courts of Justice. Considering that the chambers of each of

Mb. Gladstone's resolution for dealing with obstruction appears to be. to some extent, based on the practioe of the German Reichstag. In that assembly (as we learn from the recent Parliamentary Blue-book), a proposal for cloture has to be submitted to the President by a motion in writing, and must be supported by thirty members. The President then, without further discussion, takes a vote by show of hands. If the votes are even or doubtful, the debate proceeds, but the motion for the cloture can be repeated at any time.

The Practice in other Assemblies is more summary. Thus in the Austrian Reichsrath, a motion to close the debate may be put at any time, and may be carried by a simple majority, but a speech in course of delivery may not be interrupted, and, after the resolution has been carried, one member may bo heard on each side, and the debate is considered to be re-opened if a member of the Government afterwards rises. In the Italian Parliament, the cloture can be demanded at any time by one or more members. Only one member can speak against it, and if it is carried the debate ceases, except in the case of a personal explan ation. In the United States' House of Representatives, the passing of a motion for the previous question terminates all debate, and brings the House to a direct vote upon the question before it.

The Court Of Appeal have raised a point which is worthy of attention. Under ord. 34, r. 1, a special case in an action may be stated for the opinion of the court, and, when the special case comes on to be heard, the court gives its opinion on the questions laid before it. In the majority of cases the decision on the special case disposes of the whole of the action, but this fact has
