NOTES.
The Law Journal vill summarise legal
Proceedings in the Supreme Court, Small
Cause Court, Criminal Sessions and Police
Courts, and will report fully only cases
of exceptional interest to the public or to
the profession. We hope that our friends
will impart to us any suggestions by which
our venture may be made more serviceable.
Kyshe's Law Reports give a large num-
ber of important cases up to and including

1884, and we shall be grateful to the Regis-
trars of the Courts of Singapore, Penang
and Malacca, if they will obtain per-
mission of the Judges to favour us with
copies of written judgments since that date,
in order that they may appear in our
columns. At the close of each year, we
propose to reprint judgments considered
to be of sufficient importance to the legal
profession to be kept on record in a
separate volume for reference.
Our columns will be open for the dis-
cussion of questions connected with the
Bench and Bar, subject necessarily to the
ordinary rules which govern newspaper
correspondence. It is hoped that the Law
Journal may prove, not only a record of
that which is of interest to the profession,
but also a useful medium of communication
between its members in the Far East. In
the accomplishment of these ends, we trust
to receive the cordial co-operation of all
who can aid in increasing its utility.
The annual subscription will be, includ-
ing postage or delivery, fixed at $10,
payable in advance, and each separate copy
of the Law Journal will be $l.

able Society of the Middle Temple, in 1882,
and subsequently was admitted in the
High Court of Bombay, in the Recorder's
