The most Land Transfer Bill on solicitors' remuneration seem to have excited important amendments (as might have been supposed) are those a good deal of attention, but, judging from some of the remarks which stood in the name of Lord HERSCHELL.

It seems to be supposed that we overlooked mere deprivation of the legal estate as a sufficient penalty for the fact that first registration will, in general, be only with a non-registration ; (3) to give a proprietor injured by mistakes in possessory title ; and the opinion seems to be entertained that upon the register a direct claim for indemnity out of the insurance such a registration the title previous to registration will have to be fund without the necessity of first pursuing his remedies investigated upon every dealing with the land for many years after against any private person; (4) to lay down that, in cases the registration, and that therefore the present generation of prae- of mistakes on the register, the court shall, as titioners need not apprehend any diminution of profits.

He further stated that, in his opinion, the Thring's amendment abolishing clause 5 altogether would probably initial costs of compulsory registration ought to be reduced to have effected the desired object even better.

For, under the the lowest possible level, or, if this was impracticable, should existing registry practice, the provisions of the Settled Land Act be shared to some extent by the State.
