The clause subsequently provides that the “person” is, “if a

It is presumed that the contemplated transfer will be under the 36th section of the IT IS A COMMON HABIT of judges, when, as sometimes Judicature Act of 1873, and under ord. 51, r. 2, of the Rules of happens in the course of a litigation, the original subject-matter of the Supreme Court. The 36th section provides that any cause or dispute has disappeared or become of no importance, to say that matter may “at any time and at any stage, and either with or the only question between the parties has become a mere matter without application, be transferred by such authority and in such

Any one frequenting the action is assigned, but with the consent of the President of the courts knows that what we refer to is a matter of constant occurDivision to which the action is transferred. There is, therefore, rence. We venture to think that this is often a mistake. There full power to make the proposed transfer if the Lord Chief Justice is, perhaps, a natural reluctance to decide questions no longer subconsents. The selection of the causes to be transferred will stantially in dispute between the parties for the mere purpose of obviously require great discrimination, and it is to be hoped that determining the incidental question of costs. All English judges provision will be made that suitors shall not be put to any expense dislike deciding questions not really at issue, and when a question of re-transfer in any cause which, for any reason whatever, the is not directly in issue, but merely for an incidental purpose, court may find it necessary to re-transfer.

something of the same feeling is unconsciously experienced. And, again, there is, we fancy, some sort of idea that, by the course of

We venture to somewhat to blame, and have been in some respects unreasonable think that it is matter for great regret that this should only be a and litigious, but very often the blame is altogether, or chiefly, on presumption, foi there can be little doubt that it expresses the one side. In such cases it is very hard for the reasonable and true state of the case in almost every instance. The lengths to blameless litigant to be left without remedy because it is a “mere which the doctrine of collateral agreements might be pushed are question of costs,” and to have to pay his own costs of proceedings illustrated in the recent case, where one of the verbal representain which his opponent has conducted himself in an unreasonable, ions alleged by the plaintiff to constitute an agreement collateral litigious, or vexatious manner.

He said that, “ While there was citor to a clerk of the sheriff's officer, the creditor cannot (in an agreement going on for a lease which was to contain certain the absence of proof of direct authority from the officer to his stipulations only, a promise was made, or a representation which clerk to receive such writs) sue the sheriff's officer for nega. amounted to a promise, by [the landlord] that the game of which gence in not procuring the warrant in time. the tenant was then complaining should be so dealt with as not to amount to a serious nuisance to the tenant”-and this promise the court held to be valid.
