mittcd a breach of covenant, and induced him to sign a "letter of licence" in the following terms:—" In consideration that you will not take immediate steps to eject me from ' The Dells,' of which I have forfeited the lease, I undertake to give you quiet possession on the 29th inst., and you may use this letter as leave and licence to eject me without any process of law on that date." The plaintiff then consulted his solicitor, who at once repudiated the agreeement on his behalf. On the 30th of September he refused to give up possession, and on the 4th of October he was put out. He twice re-entered and was turned out, no great forco being used, and on the 6th of October, his wife and children were turned out, there being then some use of violence on this occasion. The defendants relied upon the licence to evict, which, they contended, was perfectly legal, and was binding as an agreement for the compromise of a right which was bond fide in dispute, while the defendant's agents had come upon the premises without any resistance. Mr. Justice Fry, however, held that the undertaking was not only voidable, but void. It was voidable because it had been obtained under pressure of an authoritative, but mistaken, statement as to the plaintiff's rights, and as soon as he consulted his solicitor it had been repudiated. The 5 Eic. 2, c 8, rendered the entry on the premises illegal, notwithstanding the existence of any right of reentry, and therefore the document must be held to give permission to do that which the statute rendered illegal, and to be void as being a licence to commit a crime. He also held that the absence of resistance to the actual entry on behalf of the defendants could not legalize any of the subsequent forcible acts, for the thing contemplated by the statute was not the mere getting over the boundary of the property, but the forcible assertion against another person of the right of re-entry. He treated the whole proceedings until the plaintiffs wife was turned out of the premises as one continued act, and he awarded £250 as damages to the plaintiff, and £200 to his wife. It is probable that very few tenants are aware of the existence of the Statute of Richard, but Mr. Justice Fry expressed his opinion that "it is important that there should be no misunderstanding as to what the rights of persons who have the right of entry are; their rights are to enter in a peaceable and an easy manner, and if they cannot do so they must apply to the courts." Since a license which practically authorizes the ejectment of the lessee, in certain events, without any legal process is sometimes inserted in leases, by way of a proviso for re-entry, Mr. Justice Fry's decision in Edwick v. Eawkes may possibly lead to the question being raised in another form.
CASES OF THE WEEK.
TUESPASS—INJUNCTION—BALANCE OP CONVENIENCE.—
In a case of Adamt v. Army and Navy Hotel, before Kay, J,, Vacation Judge, on the 26th ult., a motion was made for an injunction to restrain the defendants from trespassing npon a piece of freehold land, the property of the plaintiff and his mortgagees. The contractor for the erection of the defendants' hotel was now using the land for the deposit of his building materials, and for the purposes of the works. The plaintiff had offered by letter to let the land to the defendants for three months, for such purpose, for a sum of £200, the defendants to give up possession in case of sale by the plaintiff within fourteen days after notice, and on the expiry of the three months upon receiving seven days' notice. The plaintiff alleged that no binding agreement had been come to, as such agreement was dependent upon a formal agreement being executed and sealed by the company, and further that the defendants had insisted uf on the second mortgagee giving his consent to the letting, which he had not done. The defendants, on the other hand, alleged that a binding agreement had beon come to several months ago, and they had, in reliance upon such agreement, taken forcible possession of the land, and handed over the
to their contractor, who had deposited a quantity of materials thereon. The writ in this action had then been issued, and the notice of motion given, hut in consequence of negotiations for a purchase by the defendants of the plot in quest ion, the motion hud not been proceeded with until now. It appeared from the affidavit of the contractor that there was no other plot of land obtainable in the neighbourhood suitable for the deposit of the building materials, and that it would cost him about £7,000 to remove the same. It was submitted for the defendants that oa the balance of oonvonience an injunction should not be granted, and that at all events there was a good binding contract oa the plaintiff, whatever the cvo was as against his secoo d mortgagee. Kay, J., was of opinion, on the balance of convenience, that no injunction shonld be granted. He ordered the motion to stand to the trial, the defendants undertakicg to pay the £200 into court within a week, and to give up possession of the land, in case of a sale by the plaintiff, within seven days after written notice.—Solicitors, Levin <fc Co. ; Asians?, Morrit, $ Co.
Trust Estate — Sale — Directions To Trustees — Urgency.—In a case of March v. Swinburne, before Cave, J., Vacation Judge, on the 2Gth ult., a motion was made by the trustees of a certain trust deed to secure the leased line bonds of an American railway. The trustees had bad the whole of the share capital of one of the leased lines transferred to them by the American company as security for the loan, bat the American company bad not completed the leased line as they had agreed to do. A creditor of the leased 1 ine in America threatened a sale of the line on the 1st of September, and the committee of bondholders bad written to the trustees requesting them to take action in the matter by means of a fund under their control in America, and stating that otherwise the trustees would be held personally responsible- Upon this the trustees took counsel's opinion, who advised that, although in his opinion they need not do anything, tbey should, nevertheless, apply to the court for directions. Cave, J., after hearing the facts, directed the trustees to authorize (by telegram if necessary) their agent in America to take such steps in reference to the fund over there as he might consider best in the interests of the bondholders, and either to compromise or pay off the claim of the creditor of the leased lino out of such fund, or otherwise as be should think best.— Solicitors, Munns cfc Longdtn ; Allen <fc Eduardt; Trinderi f Curtie-Haywari.
Settlement—Rectification—Motion For Judgment —Vacation Business.—In a case of Hutchinson v. Hutchineon, before Cave, J., Vacation Judge, on the 31st nit., an application was made for the rectification of a settlement in consequence of the common mistake of the parties. Then was ample evidence of such mistake, and the matter was now brought by special leave npon motion for judgment. For tbo trustees and infants interested under the settlement the matter was left to the court, and the trustees did not object to an order providod the court were satisfied as to the sufficiency of the evidence. Cave, J., thought the evidence strong onough to justify the rectification, and made an order on the terms of that made in the case of Harley v. rearson (L. R- 13 Ch. D. 515).—Solicitors, Ridtdalt A Son; Hopwoodd: Co.
Administration — Trustees — Disagreement — ReCeiver Of Estates In Jamaica.—In the case of In re Harvey, Harvey v. Lambert, a motion was made by one of three trustees that he might be appointed receiver and manager of certain estates in Jamaica, or otherwise for a reference to chambers to appoint such receiver. Toe applicant was appointed trustee on his attaining twenty-five. He had attained that age, but was unable to agree with the other two trustees as to the management of the property. He further alleged that one of the other trustees had iovolved the trust estate in a loss of £700. Cave, J., said he could not appoint the applicant receiver and manager, lut ho would direct tbo usual reference to chambers for that purpose. Each of tho parties would have leave to nominate himself, and tho carriage of the order shonld not prejudice the appointment.—Solicitors, Tilton i Byrne-Jtnti; Tucker $ Lake.
THE ASSOCIATION FOR THE REFORM AND CODH'TCATION OF THE LAW OF NATIONS.
The ninth annual conference of this association was opened on the 16th inst., in tbe Hansa Hall, in the Stadthouse of Cologne, by Obiirburgermeister Dr. Becker. The attendance, owing to the unpropitioua weather, wae not large. Among ihofo present wore Judge Field, Judge Peabody, Sir. David D. Field, Professor Birkbeck, and Sir Travers Twiss.
Dr. Becker, in his introductory adddress, pointed to the extreme usefulness ot a society formed to study and promote international law—a subject of great importance in our days, when tbe interourse of raoes was assuming a vast and international character. Five centuries and fifteen years ago, in the very hall in which they now had met, their forefathers discussed those international agreements resulting in a treaty of the German States and those of the Netherlands for the suppression of piracy, which had rested on the northern races like a blight. In those days international compacts needed armed forces for the protection of life and property. The association that had assembled that day resorted to other means to effect its objeot; it songht by the foroe of pnblio opinion to induoe the civilized raoes to agree to common international rules, and by awakening an interest in the question it had undertaken to cement nations together. They now only needed to cultivate a knowledge of what was right to arrive at a snocessfnl result in their endeavour to build up a complete system of international law. Pointing to the cathedral, Dr. Beoker said that all great works needed time and perseverance, but by those means succeea was certain,
Mr. H. H. Meier, chairman of the North German Lloyd Steamship Company and of the German branch of this association, having been elected president of the conference, replied to Dr. Becker in a few appropriate words. Sir Travers Twiss then presented to the Bnrgomeister two copies of a charter granted by the Bargrave of the Braohenfels to the Chapter of Cologne to quarry stones, dated A.d. 1285, and laid npon tbe table a brochure, giving an account of this charter, which, by some unexplained meaDs, found its way into the archives of the British Museum some fifty years ago. This concluded tbe reception ceremony. The meeting then adjourned, and on re-assembling at two p.m. the conference eleoted fonr vice-presidents —namely, Mr. D. D. Field, of New York; Dr. E. Wendt Bnd Sir Travers Twiss, of Loudon; and Judge Peabody, of New York ; and Dr. Syndious Marons, of Bremen, and Mr. H. D. Jenckeo, of London, were appointed secretaries of the conference.
The Secretary read the report of the council for the past year. After referring to the decease of Sir Fitzroy Kelly, the former president of the association, to that of Dr. Bernhardt, of Berlin, to whose energotic support the movement towards codifying tho law on bills of exchange was in a great measure due, and to that of Mr. C. Clark, Q.C., who took so active a part in framing the York and Antwerp Rulos for adjustment of general claims, he mentioned the progress made in the adoption of the York and .Antwerp Rules, and the action taken in England to introduce a Bill for codifying the law on bills of exchange, a regret being expressed that the draft Bill laid on the table of the House of Commons last session should have almost wholly ignored the international character of the question, and that no attempt was even made to amend the defective features of our law in that respect. After the perusal of a letter from Sir Robert Phillimore to Dr. Wendt, expressing his regret at his inability as president of the association to attend this meeting, the secretary submitted numerous letters, and the reports of the different committees, of which those on negotiable securities to bearer, international copyright, and the law of affreightment were of greatest interest.
The President then called upon Sir Travers Twiss, who read a paper he had prepared "On the Early Charters granted by the Kings ofEngland to the Merchants of Cologne." The faot of those charters being signed at Northampton enables us to fix a date to them; they were granted either in the year 1157 or 1164. In both of those years the King held a Council meeting at that place, but the latter date is the more probable. Henry II. sought to favour the Archbishop
of Cologne, who had opened negotiations for the marriage of one of the King's daughters with a son of Emperor Frederic Uarbarossa. The marriago of the Emperor's son to the King's daughter was not successful; but the negotiation of the marriage of Princess Matilda to Henry the Lion was effected, and from this marriage spransr William of Winchester, the progenitor of the line of Brunswick Princes—a line which, after an interval of five centuries, succeeded to the throne of tbe Plantagenets. This charter, which owed its existence to the animosity of King Henry to Archbishop Becket, the inveterate foe of tbo Archbishop of Cologne, whom our King hoped to wound by favouring his enemy, is the first authentic trading obarter on record in this country, and marks a period in the history of commercial treaties. The next charter in point of time was that granted by King Richard I. at Louvain, in tbe fifth year of his reign, prompted by strong motives of gratitude for the friendly assistance of the tben Archbishop of Cologne. The charter is dated February 16, 1194. The romanoe attached to the name of Richard I., his captivity and ultimate release on payment of 100,000 marks (adpondus Colonial) are matters of history. Throughout the period of his captivity and final release the Archbishop of Cologne proved an unwavering friend to the King of England. A fifth charter was granted by King John on the 24th of July, 1210. This charter was granted to the citizens of Cologne as a reward for their faith* fulness to Otho IV., while pressed by tbe Gbibelin Emperor Frederick II. These charters continued in force to the days of Henry III. and Edward I. and II., constituting an interesting record of the friendly relations between the citizens of tbe city of Cologne and the Kings of England. The measures and weights used by the merchants of that great commercial centre of German trade were in international use over the greater part of Enrope, and more especially the Northern States. The desire to encourage intercourse with the sturdy merchants of that city may be traced back even as far as the days of King Ethelred, Lappenberg inclining to that view in speaking of the homines imperatoris.
The next paper submitted was the report of the Committee on Negotiable Securities. It may be reoollected that at Berne last year five rules were agreed to, which subsequently the Institute of Bankers adopted, and which it is believed the Chambers of Commeroe contemplate discussing at their next meeting in October. The principal points touched upon in these rules were unfettered negotiability and inviolability of the document, which cannot be affected by any numbers or notioe written on its face, plaoed on it to hinder negotiability.
Dr. Marcos then submitted a short treatise on Negotiable Securities to Bearer, explaining certain proposals respecting international regulations of the laws on securities to bearer. A discussion arose on the sixth resolution, which endeavoured to limit the time within whioh to bring an action on a coupon to four years, and, on the principal sum to thirty years, in which Mr. R. Lowndes, representing the Liverpool Chamber of Commerce, Judge Field, of Washington, Mr. H. H. Meier, and others took part. Finally it was agreed to name a committee to consider the question, and a resolution was passed, to be submitted at the re-as^embling of the meeting.
The Secretary then gave a short acoount of what had been done in the question of an international law on bills of exchange. He referred to the success that had attended the endeavours of the association in awakening an interest in the question of establishing a code on bills of exchange in England. The Bill brought in by Sir John Lubbock would barely answer tbe requirements of the day, which needed that the laws on these instruments should in all their main features be uniform.
The Secretary then laid on the table a paper on (he Scandinavian laws on bills of exchange, by Mr. Alfred Kirsebom. These laws are based on the general law on bills of exchange of Germany (all genuine Deutsche Wechselordnung), and Mr. Kirsebom has placed in a brief treatise the new code before tho English public. In tbe year 1876, at the Bremen Conference of ibis association, twenty-three principles or rules were agreed to by an international commission which met on that occasion. Subsequently fonr additional rules were agreed to. These rules, with some slight exceptions, were adopted by tho International Royal Commssiion, and in the year 1880, the new code, embodying the alterations suggested by these rules, bnt based otherwise on the German Code, received the Royal sanotion, having been passed unanimously by the Diets of the three kingdoms of Sweden, Norway, and Denmark. The laws of the three Scandinavian countries not only differed widely, but presented a mixture of conflicting oastoms and positive law, whiob, with sound practical sense, the Legislatures of these kingdoms, without hesitation, ohanged and consented to oodify into one system. A translation of the ninety-six articles of the code was appended.
The meeting then appointed a committee, composed of Dr. Wendt, Sir Travers Twiss, and Mr. H. D. Jencken, with instructions to place themselves in communication with the British Government, in the hope that their attention might be directed to the importance of the international oharaoter of bills of exobange, and the desirability of considering that aepeot of the question in framing a code of bills of exchange.
In the evening the local committee gave a dinner to the members in the great banquet-hall of the Gurzenioh, at which the Burgomaster, Dr. Becker, presided.
THE COURT OF APPEAL.
Mr. Justice Watkin Williams has addressed the following second letter to the Timet:—
"B." asks me "te name a few instanoes—say, half-adozen to begin with "—of miscarriages of justice in the Court of Appeal, and also "whether any of them have been set right by the House of Lords, and, if not, why not." From this question I perceive that "B." has carried away a different impression from my letter to that intended to be conveyed, and has, therefore, not unnaturally misquoted me by severing a sentence from its context.
"Htlf-a-dozen to begin with, and why they have not been set right by the House of Lords "I I am astonished. I was referring to certain very exceptional appeal cases, not by any means excluding Honse of Lords oases, as illustrating what would be liable to happen in the event of the alteration in the constitution of the Court of Appeal proposed by " W. B." being carried into effect. Permit me here to repeat the words of my letter. After pointing out the greater exactness and more limited nature of the former appeals to the Exchequer Chamber and the House of Lords, I proceeded to say— "Now, on the other hand, every appeal is a re-hearing of the whole cause on its merits; and points and questions of fact as well as law that may have been overlooked, or neglected, or even abandoned, and not thoroughly investigated at the trial are liable to be raised and seriously relied upon for the first time in the appellate court; ao that without a thorough practical acquaintance on the part of the appellate judges with the course and incidents of trials the grossest miscarriage of justice is liable to take place, and in fact does take place, even when unexceptionable law and admirable legal principles are laid down." I neither retract nor qualify a word of this. What I intended to convey by this language was that in an appellate court, where the whole matter is brought under review in the form of a re-hearing, a miscarriage of justice is liable to take place where the tribunal is not thoroughly at home in all the practical and detailed working of the original proceedings, and that such miscarriages did in fact occur in practice. My statement was not confined to a particular appellate court, as "B." assumes; and, in fact, the principal esse that was present to my mind was a House of Lords case, in which the decisions of all the inferior courts were reversed. I am willing to furnish " B." with the references to the cases that were present to my mind when I come within the reach of books ; but I am bound to say that, from my point of view, it would not advance the discussion which I entered upon to embark upon, possibly, a controversial examination of decided cases within the cramped limits of such a correspondence as this. Such an expression of opinion as I have ventured upon must, I think, be left to the general verdict of the legal and professional peblio, including the solicitors, the bar, and the whole judicial body, and to that I am content to leave it.
I will only add that the whole aim of my letter, which I must now assume to have been badly expressed, was to question the wisdom and expediency of the proposed change in tho constitution of the Court of Appeal, which, as now constituted, has given such general satisfaction to the suitors, to the public, and to the legal profession.
MR. WILLIAM HENRY HODGSON.
Mr. William Henry Hodgson, barrister, formerly assistant solicitor to the Treasury, died at Carlisle on the 19th nit.
