A LEGAL contemporary is laying undue stress on the age of Mr. McIntyre, who has just been appointed County Court Judge. All we can say is that he is a younger-looking and more active man than many men ten or twelve years his junior. No one would dream, if he were not told, that the dapper little figure can count as many years as it appears he is justly credited with. We congratulate his honour, but not less do we congratulate the County Court Circuit to which he has been appointed; for, in Mr. McIntyre, they have an able and experienced lawyer, and a courteous gentleman. His Honour, Judge Snagge, to whose circuit Mr. McIntyre succeeds, is transferred to Circuit No. 36.
