Discussion on Judge Chalmers' Paper.
Martin (Richard B.).

Letters from Lord Herschell and Mr. John Hollams; Practical im

portance to bankers of the measure Tritton (J. Herbert).

Interest of bankers in the question ; The Statute of Frauds, and

stoppage in transitu; Judge Chalmers' Paper is a strong argu

ment for the amendment of the law on these and other points Macdonell (John).

The Bill is a great step towards the codification of mercantile law;

Continental mercantile codes are far superior in plan and
execution to the mercantile code being elaborated in England;
Desirability of sub-sections ; Statute of Frauds; Intention of the
parties; Delivery ; Stoppage in transitu ; Difficulty of har-

monising the conflicting decisions on that point Gallaher (G. R. S.).

Bankers are more interested in the pledge of goods; Desirability

that the promoters should obtain assent to the principle that
entrustment gives title; Application of the principle of the

Factors' Act to negotiable securities
Slater (Robert).
The Codification of the Law of Sale would be as useful to traders as

the Bills of Exchange Act is to bankers; Market overt; bankers

are much interested in the law of stoppage in transit 16 Chalmers (Judge). In reply.

Stoppage in transitu is a point on which the law may be made

clearer; Reasons for introducing the Bill as a purely codifying
measure, simply reproducing the existing law; Amendments
raising debate or controversy would probably jeopardise the
passing of the Bill; The Statute of Frauds; Foreign codes ;
Educating influence of codification abroad; Sub-sections; Bankers
and negotiable securities

Fowler (Wm.). Proposed vote of thanks.
Banking panics ; The crisis of 1890 was not a banking crisis ; Increase in

amount of bank reserve since 1856 ; Our greatness as a trading nation
is due to the extent to which our business is done on credit, but we are
liable to crises if we use our money up so closely by trading on credit;
We liave not had a panic since 1866 ; Magnitude of the crisis of 1890;
Possibility of a change in the law which would give more elasticity

to our system
Harvey (A. S.). Seconded vote of thanks.
The action of the Bank of England in November, 1890, averted a banking

panic ; Bankers have been subject to much criticism, and want now to

be left alone

37-38 Trust FUNDS AND COLONIAL GOVERNMENT SECURITIES. By Sir George Baden-Powell, K.C.M.G., M.P.

Why and how Colonial Securities should be made available as trust

Legislative efforts in this direction
Need of new avenues for the investment of trust funds

344-345 Decrease in existing channels of investment, due to the steady redemption

of the National Debt and the lower value of land Rules of the Supreme Court as to trust funds

345–346 Provisions of the Trust Act for Scotland Gradual appreciation of Colonial Securities as a new outlet for the investStenly and great growth in industrial and commercial activity of our colonies.

343 343–344




ent of trust funds

TRUST FUNDS —Continued.




Expenditure of borrowed money on productive works
Assets of the Colonies
Obstacles which have prevented these securities being placed in the

position due to them, viz., absence of means for holders to enforce
claims, and the impracticability of limiting issues
The first obstacle is removed, and the second is capable of arrangement
Automatic rule limiting investments to stocks which maintain a certain

rank on the Stock Exchange
Advantages which would attend the inclusion of Colonial Stocks in the

list of trustee investments.

Discussion on Sir G. Baden Powell's Paper.

Martin (John B.).

Effect of the proposal on the price of Consols ; Stimulus which

might be given to reckless borrowing by the Colonies; On what
principle should Government interfere, and give legislative sanc-

tion to trust investments
Rouse (Edmund).
Advantages to the Colonies and the mother country if the suggested

alteration were made : British deposits in Australasian banks
Billinghurst (H, F.).

Present status of Colonial Stocks; Existing loans well held; Signs

that investors are not at present disposed to absorb further large
issues; xpenditure on re-productive works ; Raising of loans in
the Colonies; The annual payment of interest will constitute an
inconvenient drain on colonial resources; Necessity of en-

couraging immigration
Cork (Nathaniel).

British deposits in Australasian banks; Scotch trustees are per

mitted to invest in colon al stocks ; Parliamentary control of
colonial issues ; Standard of merit of colonial stocks; Stocks

already largely held by trustees
Baden-Powell (Sir George) in reply.

Parliamentary control of the issues : The departmental committee ;

Automatic rule recommended; Effect of the proposed action on
the price of Consols; The proportion of colonial government
securities is small compared with the total funds now available,
and any increased value given to colonial stocks would only
slightly decrease the value of consols ; Advantage of raising the
credit of the Colonies; The bill would permit trustees to invest

but not compel them; Borrowing has not hitherto been reckless
