MR. Justice Fry has intimated his intention, with a view of saving expense, to avail himself more fully than he considers is ordinarily done of rule 20 of Consolidated Order XXXV., relating to the nomination of one solicitor to represent a class the individual members of which have the same interest; and his lordship will direct his Chief Clerks to ascertain, and if necessary to certify, in each instance the mode of carrying out this provision.

[ocr errors]

THE “ TWENTY ONR separate and distinct courts ” which Mr. Shaw-Lefevre announced were to be provided in the Royal Courts of Justice, about which we ventured to propound a query (ante, p. 347), consist, we are informed, of the eighteen courts originally provided, and also of the large bar-room at the north of the central hall, and two arbitration rooms not on the court floor. The result will be that the bar will lose the benefit of a room rather larger than the present bar-room, and two of the judges will have to put up with courts of very small di. mensions.

THE COMMEMORATION BANQUET will remind Old Blues of the many University oarsmen who have obtained distinction in the legal profession. The list is headed by Lord Justice BRETT, who rowed No. 7 in the winning Cambridge boat in 1839; and among many other names which might be mentioned are those of Mr. Justice DENMAN, who was a member of the Cambridge crews in 1841 and 1842; Mr. Chitty, Q.C., who rowed for Oxford in three contests, in two of which his University was successful; Mr. MACNAUGHTEN, Q.O., who was one of the Cambridge crew in 1852; Mr. A. L. SMITH, who rowed twice for Cambridge, and Mr. MANSEL JONES, whois an old Cambridge stroke. In the other branch of the profession there occur to us the names of Mr. J. T. MORLAND, of Abingdon, who steered the Cambridge crews in 1859 and 1860; Mr. E. B. MerRIMAN, of Marlborough, who rowed in the Oxford crew in 1861 ; and Mr. R. T. RAIKES, of the firm of Harries, WILKINSON, & RAIKES, who rowed bow for Oxford in 1865 and 1866; and among the younger solicitors there are several distinguished University oarsmen.
