UVEBPOOL BANKRUPTCY COURT.

Wednesday, June 30. Re Geo. Underwood. Tst B. A. 1861—Suspension of proceedings in

kntntptey under sect. 110.—Parochial rates. Tk antrt has no jurisdiction to order payment of niki in full where the assignees have divested thmseh'es of the estate in favour of the bank-</,, and where he has obtained his order of

Xob'on in this case was made to the court on la 23rJ inst., and judgment reserved till this day.

His Honour said :—In this case an application a- been made by Mr. Tidswell on behalf of the elector of the extra-parochial district of Toxtethpft. for leave from this court to apply to the Ktras sitting in petty sessions for a warrant of •stress on the goods of the bankrupt, in satisWon of a claim for 78(. 15s. clue for poor rates k the overseers of the said district. It appears t the file of proceedings, that a proof for f.'■ 3s. 3(i. was duly made by the collector on the <ti Oct 1868. On the 20th of Oct. 1868, pro**&n?< in bankruptcy were suspended under fc provisions of sect. 110, Bankruptcy Act 1861. wseauently, on the 30th Dec. 1868, an order was j*lebj Mr. Registrar Lee, duly acting as deputy to the commissioner of this court, in tho terms of ■Jt_156. Bankruptcy Act 1861, for payment of '>■ at. being poor rates in full. It was forcibly ?M by Mr. Tidswell, on the authority of the Mjmait of Mr. Commissioner Bacon in Ex parte ■- Animus, Holborn, 20 L. T. Rep. N. S. 281,

■tit vras not in tie power of a debtor ex*aitulB a deed of assignment or composition to *Jt* from the conditions which gave to certain £»!>• burdens a priority over the claims of creJ-tr;; but I am of opinion that it is unnecessary £s» to review either the facts or the numerous PjMorw to which I was referred, as Mr. Tidswell

* iled to satisfy me that there is any ground

* the interference of this court. The leave of

* «art is indisputably necessary in the case of r;-*?f arrangement under sect. 198 (Bankruptcy

1S61), but there is no provision of a like Option applicable to liquidation or composi"Jander sect. 110. The representative of the -';■■ ofiicere must apply to tho justices in petty I-^tt!01 a ?rarrant °f distress in the ordinary 4 b * tribunal will decide all questions both ^ . *■"! fact; and if the overseers be dissatis_J*ith the decision of the justices, they have spportunity of appeal by applying for a rule in

the Court of Queen's Bench, under the provisions of 11 & 12 Vict. o. 44. I am therefore of opinion that the present application must be refused.

Tidswell said that his client's application to the Courtof Bankruptcy was in consequence of intimation from the magistrates that they considered the question to be within the jurisdiction of the Court of Bankruptcy.

His Honour repeated that no case had been made out for tho interference of the Court of Bankruptcy.

Deed Of Arrangement.—A., finding himself in difficulties, proposes to pay his creditors a composition. His liabilities amount to about 40!., and there cannot be any assent required to the deed as there are no debts amounting to 101. and upwards, the largest one being 91.

Queries.

55. Freight Brokerage.—A ahipbroker takes a captain to a merchant, who offers him a freight of 16s. per ton for a certain voyage, which he declines. Subsequently another broker offers him 16s. 6<Z. for the same voyage, which he accepts, and this broker draws up a charter-party, which is signed by the merchant aforesaid, the captain and broker. The difference in freight between 16s. and 16e. 6d. the broker makes good out of his own pocket. The captain is now sued by the firstmentioned broker for commission on freight, on the ground, it is presumed, of being the first to introduce the captain to the merchant. I should be obliged by the opinion of some of your readers, citing cases if possible, as to the validity of the claim. It should also be stated that a third broker had previously been to the said merchant, at the captain's request, and obtained the offer of the said freight, but the captain did not accompany this broker to the merchant's office. It is customary to allow one-third of the brokerage to the merchant and one-third to the captain or owner. Can tho broker claim more than his share? X. Y.

{Q. 30.) Apprenticeship.—" W. H. P." appears to have confined his attention to the interpretation clause of the Act of 1867, and to have considered neither the rest of the Act nor the previous enactments which for the time it supersedes. Now, if he will read the very next section (sect. 3) he will find that the Act is expressly confined to the scope of certain existing enactments; and this being so, there can be no grounds for contending that the common law right in question, if unaffected by those enactments, is affected by the Act of 1867. Apparently the sole ground on which "W.H. P." bases bis opinion is that by the interpretation clause the word " employed" shall include apprentices, whether under the age of twenty-one or above that age. I confess I do not see what that lias to do with the question; but, taking the argument for what it is worth, "W. P. H." will find in studying the previous enactment, that refractory infant apprentices were as liable to bo punished before 1867 as they are now, and that in this respect there is nothing to distinguish this Act from its predecessors. Irrespective of sect. 3, I can see nothing in the Act from which even a vague inference can be drawn that it was intended to abolish the right in question, beside which, I think that the right is of such a character, and depends upon such brood principles, that nothing short of an express enactment can disturb it. M. E. S.

Q. 41.) Married Woman Real Property.—The views expressed by "W. H, P.," in answer to this

query, appear to be so contrary to common sense, and to be referable to no well-known principle, that I should be glad to know what authorities he can adduce in support. That he can adduce sufficient authorities I donot doubt, as his opinion is expressed with such confidence, but in the mean time may I venture to say that I know of none, and that my views coincide with those of "E. H. B.," viz., that the child must be legally regarded as the child of the first husband. It is true that where a child is born after marriage, that could not possibly have been conceived in wedlock, it is in law considered as the child of the husband; but the principle on which it is so considered is by no means applicable to the present case. It is, however, the only one I con think of as tending to lead " W. H. P." to the opinion he has expressed. M. K. S.

(Q. 44.) Appointment Of New Trustees—Exercise Of Power.—I do not agree with **W. H. P." and "J. P. *' in the opinion they come to herein. Stone v. Jtoufon, 17 Beav. 308: 1 Eq. E. 427, is clearly applicable to the cose here submitted. If the power had been properly followed the surviving trustee should have appointed a trustee in the place of the deceased trustee, and the trustee so appointed should then have appointed a trustee in the place of the? surviving trustee on hisdeclining to act. Is it not necessary in order to give a retiring trustee power to appoint in his own place to add the words " for this purpose a retiring trustee shall be considered a continuing trustee," or words to that effect? I should like to be informed whether in Hadley v. Hadley, quoted by" J. P.," words to that effect are not contained in that power. The enabling words are> altogether wanting in the case stated by "Querist,** and I believe their absence is fatal to the appointment purporting to have been made by the retiring trustee.

W. S.

— I must beg leave to differ from " W. H. F." and "J, P." on the point raised in this query, in spite of the assertion of the former that " there can be no doubt'* on the subject. It appears from the statement of facts that after A. had renounced, B. appointed D. as sole trustee in his own stead and retired. Now the words of the power, so far as material, are, that in case either of the trustees should renounce, it should be lawful for the surviving or continuing trustee to appoint a fit person in the place of the trustee so renouncing. Evidently then the power is not well exercised by the appointment of a new trustee in the place of B., and that is the first flaw in the exercise of the power. Again, the power is vested in the "surviving or continuing trustee." A. having renounced, I think that his subsequent death cannot be taken into account, and that B. cannot be called the surviving trustee within the meaning of the power. Neither can B. if he retire be called a continuing trustee, and the appointment made by him is consequently invalid. He should first have appointed a new trustee in the place of A., and then if he wished to retire, the new trustee might, as the continuing trustee, have appointed another trustee in his stead. Upon this point the case is on all-fours with Tram* v. IUingworth, 34 L. J. 665, Ch. The cases quoted by "J. P.," are not precisely applicable to, and cannot govern, the present. In Camoys v. Best, 19 Beav. 414, the power was vested in the surviving or continuing or other trustee, and the decision rested on the force of the words "other trustee." In Iladh ty v. Hadley, 5 De G. & S. 67, the words were "acting trustee," and it was held that a trustee would come under that denomination, if he merely acted by appointing another trustee and then retired. A third flaw in the appointment is, in my opinion, the appointment of a sole trustee, which, I think, is not warranted by the power. The words of the power, so far as material, are "To appoint any fit person or persons in the place of the trustee or trustees so dying," 4c, and without doing violence to the natural meaning of the words, I do not see how the expression can be construed otherwise than as if it were "to appoint a fit person in the place of the trustee, or fit persons in the place of the trustees so dying," &c. Moreover, the intention of the settlor to sanction a departure from the original number of trustees must be clearly expressed: {Stones v. Roirton, 22 L. J. 975, Ch.), and the most that can be Baid here is, that there is a doubt on the point. On the three grounds above stated, I am of opinion that the power was not well exercised, and that "D." can make no title. M. E. S.

LAW LIBRARY.

Selwyn's Abridgment of the Law of Ntsi Prtus.

Thirteenth Edition. By David Keane, Q.C.

and Charles V. Smith, M.A. London:

Stevens and Sons. To the lawyers of the last generation there was no better known book than Selwyn's Nisi Prius; it was on the shelf of every office, in every bag at the assizes. By reason of its alphabetical arrangement, its abundant information was readily accessible; it had no rival; it formed, in fact, the portable law library of the practitioner. How it come to lose any portion of its popularity it would be hard to say, for, though it had rivals, none of them approached it in accuracy. Stephens's book, greatly exceeding it in size, did not supply more plentiful law to compensate for its increased bulkiness. Perhaps it was that the changes in the law were so rapid that it it was found to be impossible to keep pace with them, and that scarcely was "copy" ready for the press before law reforms completed or announced forbade the costly process of printing what in a twelvemonth would have been worthless. Be this as it may, prudence dictated delay year after year in the production of a new edition, and it was not until a lull in the process of change offered some chance of permanency for their labours that the editors of this one, Mr. Keane, Q. C. and Mr. C. P. Smith, adventured upon publication. Even as it is, they have found it necessary to omit the title "Bankruptcy," over which a complete revolution has passed since their volumes have issued from the press.

But here we have at last an invaluable body of sound practical law, so reduced in bulk by judicious compression that the whole subject is thoroughly treated in two not very ponderous volumes ; thus exactly reversing the usual fate of law books, whose custom it is to grow in bulk with every successive edition, until a little treatise for the pocket becomes a burden for the bag. It will be obvious from the accumulation of statutes and decisions since the former edition, that the greater portion of the work must have been rewritten, and with what laborious care this was done will appear from this, that the mere list of cases cited fills no less than 120 columns of small type.

Although professing to be a book of Nisi Prius law, it is quite as useful in the County Courts, which now have jurisdiction on almost every subject comprised in these two volumes; and therefore it will be as much the text-book of that popular tribunal as of the Superior Courts. Mjrcover, it contain* just those subjects on which the solicitor is most frequently consulted by his clients, and for which he needs the latest, readiest, and most reliable information. Here he will find it, and thus it will be found as useful in the office as in the courts.

If there be any reader to whom it is not already known, it will suffice to tell him that the plan of the work is this: The subjects of Nisi Prius contention are arranged in alphabetical order for convenience of reference, and each one is treated by describing, first, the general law relating to it and the evidence necessary to support the action, then the declaration, then the 'plea, and finally the damages and judgment.

LEGAL OBITUARY.

MB. WILLIAM LEE, Q.C. Mr. William Lee, one of Her Majesty's Counsel and a bencher of the Inner Temple, who died at his residence, Brighton, on the 7th of this month, in the 83rd year of his age, was called to the Bar so long ago as July 1813. Mr. Lee was a most learned real property lawyer, and Mb opinion was so highly esteemed by the Chancery Judges, and especially by the late Lord Justice Knight Bruce, that Mr. JJee was often called upon by that learned judge to give his opinion as amicus curia. Mr. Lee might always have commanded a large practice, but he lacked business habits, and for ten or fifteen years past he may be said to have done nothing in the way of his profession. In spite of increasing years and infirmities he continued to haunt tho courts, too long for his own comfort and dignity. Lord Westbnry, when he came to town fresh from his successes at Oxford, entered the chambers of Mr. Lee as a pupil; and many years after, when the pupil had become Lord High Chancellor of Great Britain, at a dinner given to the Benchers of the two Temples, Lord Westbury gratefully as well as gracefully alluded to the valuable instruction which he had received from Mr. Lee. If the late Mr. Tidd was justly proud of having counted among his pupils Lord Lyndhurst and Lord Cottenham, Mr. Leo pointed with equal pride to the success of his pupil Lord Westbury, both at the Bar and on the woolsack. Mr. Lee was in the habit of saying good things in a dry and sarcastic manner. One may be mentioned. When, twelve years ago, to tho surprise of every one, the late Lord Wensleydalo was created a peer for life, Mr. Leo asked "was his Lordship tenant for life without impeachment?"

LAW SOCIETIES.

THE HAMPSHIRE LAW SOCIETY. We are pleased to learn that this society has been established. At a general meeting held on the 9th inst., a codo of rides was agreed to, and the following officers were appointed. C. B. Hellard, Esq., President, H. Ford, Esq., VicePresident, T. Cousins, Esq., Secretary, A. Besant, Esq., Treasurer. The following gentlemen were appointed members of the councd: G. C. Stigant, Esq., C. J. Longcroft, Esq., S. S. Long, Esq., J. J. Webb, Esq., and S. J. Elliott, Esq. The annual dinner is appointed to take place on Thursday, the 22nd inst.

Negative Voting.—On Monday evening, at the meeting of the Jurisprudence Department of tho National Association for the Promotion of Social Science, Mr. Thomas Hare in the chair, a paper upon "Negative Votes" was read by Mr. Clair J. Grece, LL.B. Mr. Grece observed that by the present practice negative opinion was not elicited or asked for. The voter was precluded from voting against, say both the objectionable candidates, ana so was often driven to vote for one candidate as the only means of excluding the other. The logically correct course would be for him to vote against both. Another evil was, that while any number of candidates may be put forward, the support of the electoral body may be so divided amongst them, that the absurd result may readily arrive that while the election purports to be that of the majority, the representative of a minority of the constituency may be declared elected, as occurred at Brighton in the case of the election of Mr. Moore a few years ago. Mr. Grece suggested that recognition should bo conferred upon negative votes. The Legislature had recently enfranchised an extensive section of the community, and he claimed for his suggestion that it would be a measure of enfranchisement, not, it is true, of persons, but of opinion. An interesting discussion followed the reading of the paper, and votes of thanks to Mr. Grece and the chairman closed the meeting.

The business on the circuits has been remarkably meagre. Perhaps the Home has shown the greatest dearth. The causes at Nisi Prius have been in the main of slight importance, whilst criminal offences have been lighter than usual.

The Registration of Trade Marks Bill is withdrawn. The Habitual Criminals Bill, which originated in the Lords some months ago, is also to be withdrawn, the Home Secret ARY declining to undertake the responsibility of attempting to pass such a measure at the present advanced period of the session.

A sing ULAR judicial power has been conferred on juries in an American state. A recent statute enacts that, “In all cases of felonies which by existing laws are punishable with death, it shall be competent for the jury empanelled to return with their verdict of guilty, and as part of the same, either that the prisoner shall suffer death by hanging as now provided by law, or that he be imprisoned in the penitentiary for the term of his natural life, or for a term, not less than fourteen years, as they may decide.”

OF Mr. O'Dowd, the new Deputy Judge Advocate-General, the Globe writes: We may call the Premier fortunate, in finding for his appointment a candidate who combines a thorough acquaintance with the esprit de corps and the training—professional as well as mental—which belongs to the Bar, and with the corresponding elements in the military spirit. This is a combination not often met with in a high degree of development, and it is one which stands the country in good stead when the work to be done is of so delicate and difficult a nature as the administration of military law. We are quite satisfied that Mr. O'Dowd is the right man in the right place, but, as we have said, it by no means follows that Mr. GLADstone should give general satisfaction by this appointment. That this should be the result arises, in a considerable degree, from the fact that Mr. O'Dowd has made his way into public life through the gate of the literary profession—a gate which has in general, we are afraid, been made much too difficult of access to those who are outside the happy valley of othcial influence and emolument. If, however, Mr. O'Dowd had merely served his party in the ordinary routine of partisan writing, we should not have been so ready to con

gratulate him on his promotion. But he was able to combine with this more ephemeral kind of political advocacy work which qualified him to serve his country as well as his party. His connection with the Army and Navy Gazette completed and signalised his acquaintance with military life in all its details, and the influence and independence of that journal will be certain to gain the confidence of the whole military profession for the new Deputy Judge-Advocate.

LIQUIDATORS, SOLICITORS, AND
TRUSTEES.

THE MASTER of the Rolls has, in the matter of the Accidental Death Insurance Company, used very strong expressions upon the frequent contests for the office of liquidator, which occupied so much of the time of the courts, to the injury by delay to the interests of suitors. He seemed to think it was more a question to be disposed of in chambers than to be fought out in the courts, and so far we entirely agree with him. But it is not for this that we notice the case in question, but for an incidental remark that has a special significancy at this time. “The real contest in all these cases,” he said, “was who was to be the solicitor to the liquidator, who was generally merely a tool in the hands of the solicitor.”

There is a partial truth in this observation. Undoubtedly a winding-up is at least as profitable to the solicitor as to the liquidator, and therefore it is only in the natural course of things that solicitors should seek it, and if two persons are seeking the same object, it is but common prudence in them to join hands and pull together. But it is unjust to say that the liquidator is only a tool in the hands of the solicitor, for their interests are mutual and their alliance is on even terms. The powers of the liquidator are limited, and although he can give a great deal of profitable business to the solicitor, he cannot, with safety to himself, make work for him, and that is what Lord Romilly must have designed to convey by the expression that the liquidator was merely the tool of the solicitor.

But the subject has a special interest at this moment. The Bankruptcy Bill practically extends the system of winding-up to all bankrupt estates. The trustees are designed to be, and in practice will be, official liquidators. They are to be paid, and bankruptcy trusteeship will become a regular business. Indeed, it can only be performed efficiently by persons who make a business of it, who will devote their whole time and thought to it, and keep an establishment of clerks and collectors. The pay for each case will be small, and it can only be profitably managed on a large scale, where the great bankruptcies with heavy assets will pay for the little ones. A solicitor must be attached to every bankruptcy; few estates can be wound-up without some litigation. The solicitors may fairly look to this source of business as anxiously as they do the winding-up of companies, and we have no doubt that their bills will continue to be, as ever they have been, the principal claim in the expenses of a bankruptcy. It was to meet this difficulty that we suggested —and had the opportunity remained to us, we should have pressed it upon the consideration of the House as the most prudent course—to make solicitors in all cases the official liquidators in bankruptcy, paying them by a liberal commission. None would or could do the work so well, or, upon the whole, so cheaply. Is it too late 2

THE TRADES UNION FUNDS PROTECTION BILL. The Bill is very short. It merely removes the doubt raised by the recent equally divided judgment of the Queen's Bench, by declaring that no society registered under the Friendly Societies Act shall be deemed, for the purposes of the 24th section of that Act for the punishment of fraud and imposition, to be a society established for a purpose which is illegal, or not to be a Friendly Society within the meaning of such section. It is limited to one year. This is all that can be asked for, although, as before observed, neither the necessity nor the advantage of it is apparent, seeing that the general law gives to trades unions precisely the same protection against fraud and embezzlement as it gives to other associations and to private persons. Friendly societies possess the advantage, if such it be, of a summary proceeding before justices;
