The Ministry recognise that only a very small minority of the Magistracy of Mel bourne is implicated in the less serious cbhi ges.forn}ulated by the Lormer Board, and that it would be unfair to cast a slur upon the large number of men of the highest standing because of the guilt of a few. They felt it umiecessary to take such drastic steps as that of superseding the honorary bench by stipendary magistrates, and thus throwing odium on many moie who had faithfully dis charged their dutiea . ,nd are held in high esteem. It is probable, however, that the 'Board's'recommendation in regard to magis trates bonfining their attention to particular courts will be carried out, and that the amani~sation of petty sessional districts will be aiiitiged so that the present staff of police ;magistrates will be able to devote their at tention to a wide sphere of police court work.
