MEMORANDA OF 1908.

[ocr errors]

What His Honour the Chief Justice stigmatised as the “ghastly experiment” of carrying on the judicial work of the State without filling up the vacancy caused by the retirement of Sir Samuel Griffith in 1903, has at last been given up. On the return of the Premier from England in October, a re-arrangement of parties was brought about, and a new Cabinet formed in which the Hon. Thos. O'Sullivan accepted the portfolio of Attorney-General in place of the Hon. J. W. Blair. One of the first decisions of the new Cabinet was that there should be three Justices of the Supreme Court in Brisbane, and that in future Mr. Justice Chubb should sit in Brisbane. This necessitated the appointment of another Justice to sit in Townsville, and W. A. B. Shand, Esq., on the 3rd November last, accepted this appointment. Ou the following day at the Sittings of the full Court, the Hon. Thos. O'Sullivan presented a commission appointing him Attorney-General and received the congratulations of the Bench. Mr. Shand was then sworn in as a Justice of the Supreme Court, and was congratulated by the Attorney-General on behalf of both branches of the profession, and also by their Honours the Judges.

Mr. Justice Shand was born in England and educated at Harrow and at Balliol College, Oxford, taking his degree in 1881 with first-class honours in History. He then entered at the Inner Temple, and was called to the Bar on 26th January, 1884. Subsequently to being called, he read for some time with several eminent English Counsel, and later, decided to come to Queensland. He was admitted

vi.

to practice as a Barrister of the Supreme Court of Queensland on 15th February, 1887, and since that date has practised continuously in

continuously in Brisbane. Mr. Shand soon after admission acquired a good practice, and has for some years past been considered one of the leaders of our Bar. He has for some time past found his time largely occupied with opinion and appeal work. It is certain that his large experience and wide knowledge of law combined with a great capacity for work will . contribute to many sound and useful judgments, and the profession anticipate with pleasure and confidence the capable and courteous discharge of judicial functions by the new Judge. The strong expressions of approbation of the action of the Government in choosing Mr. Shand to fill the vacancy on the Bench leave no doubt as to public opinion on this subject.

We desire to express the indebtedness of the profession to Mr. Justice Chubb, (who has completed nineteen years' work as Northern Judge), for the great trouble and care he has taken to ensure accurate reports of cases decided in the Northern Court being obtained. A glance at volumes of the Reports for some years back will reveal many valuable decisions for which we are thus indebted.
