legislature to adopt so many ill-advised The bill proceeding through parliament, measures. The jurisdiction of the Court to abolish the Court of Review and alter of Bankruptcy, under the 8 & 9 Vict. c. the jurisdiction in bankruptcy and insol- 127, was in a great degree superseded by vency, has undergone several changes of the County Courts Act, (9 & 10 Vict. c. greater or less importance since its intro- 95,) which in effect confined it to cases in duction to the House of Lords. We have which judgment may still be obtained in now before us a copy printed by order of the superior courts, for a sum not exceedthe House of Commons on the 25th of ing 201. In those cases, under the present June, after the bill had come from the bill

, the jurisdiction is divided between the House of Peers. The fourth section is Court for the Relief of Insolvent Debtors altered and remodelled in various particu- and the County Courts, in the same manner lars. The mistake noticed in our last num- as the jurisdiction in insolvency. One reber, (ante, p. 187,) of transferring the juris- sult produced by this arrangement is somediction in bankruptcy in cases where a fiat what anomalous. The judges of the County issues on the petition of the trader, under Courts are entrusted with a power—which the 7 & 8 Vict. c. 96, s. 41, bas been cor- the judges of the superior courts are exrected, by confining the transfer of jurisdic- pressly deprived of,- to give effect to the tion to so much of the recited acts as re- judgments of the superior courts by comlates to "matters of insolvency."

The judges of the and the judges of the County Courts; and County Courts, however, have authority it is provided that the provisional assignee under this bill, conjointly with the 8 & 9 of the Insolvent Court, and the Clerk of the Vict. c. 127, to commit a debtor, against County Court, shall be and act as the whom judyment has been signed in one of official assignee of the estate and effects of the superior courts for a debt under 201., the insolvent.

The transfer of jurisdiction under the An easy method of evading the penal Small Debts Act seems to bave been an consequences, and defeating the operation, afterthougit, and the manner in which it is of the 8 & 9 Vict. c. 127, is, we presume, sought to be carried out in this bill fur- unintentionally suggested by the provisions VOL. XXXIV. No. 1,008.



Alterations in the Jurisdiction in Bankruptcy and Insolvency. of the new bill. The 8 & 9 Vict. c. 127, sioner of the said court for the relief of insolr. s. 1, provides that the creditor may obtain ent dehtors shall henceforth, singly, be and a summons from any Commissioner of the form a court for every purpose under all acts Court of Bankruptcy, or any Court for the now in force or which may hereafter be in

force relating to insolvent debtors." Recovery of Small Debts, - within the jurisdiction of which euch debtor shall re- - I this clause stood, without any further side or be." The bill under consideration, provision, the difficulty suggested as to however, provides, that the defendant summonses issued against judgment debtors, against whom a summons issues “shall under the 8 & 9 Vict. c. 127, would exist have resided for six calendar months next with respect to insolvent debtors. An inimmediately preceding the suing out of solvent who did not reside in one place for any such summons,” within the district of six months next preceding the date of his the court issuing the snmmons. The clause petition, would not have a locus standi as by which this uncalled for alteration is an insolvent petitioner in any court,

This effected, and which is numbered five in appears to have been foreseen, and is atthe printed bill, is as follows:

tempted to be provided for, though we will

not take upon us to say effectually, as re“That from the time this act shall commence and take effect

There is no siinilar provision, nor any ately preceding the time of filing his petition, other provision, as to the jurisdiction under or of the suing out of any such summons afore- the Small Debts Act, and, as already said within the counties of Middlesex or Hert- stated, the consequence will be, if the bill ford, or within such parts of the counties of passes in its present form, thai a judgment Kent, Surrey, Sussex, and Essex as do not ex- debtor under 201., who accidentally or inceed the distance of 20 miles from the General tentionally changes his place of domicile the said court and the commissioners thereof so as not to reside at any time for six under the aforesaid acts is hereby restricted,

The latest edition of the bill retains the and that every commissioner of the court for clause (numbered 11) authorising the Lord the relief of insolvent debtors, and every judge Chancellor to give directions for sittings of of the county courts aforesaid, shall, from and the Court of Bankruptcy elsewhere than in after the time this act shall commence and take London, although a similar authority is aleffect, have and exercise, in the prosecution of such petitions and summonses filed and issued ready conferred upon that functionary, in in such courts respectively, the like power and nearly the same words, by the 7 & 8 Vict. authority in all respects under the aforesaid c. 96, section 44. It is more remarkable, acts as the commissioners of her Majesty's and much more objectionable, that no pro Court of Bankruptcy and district courts of vision is introduced to avoid the palpable bankruptcy have heretofore had and exercised, absurdity already pointed out, (ante, p. 186,) on the presentation of petitions of the insolvent of calling upon the Commissioners for the
