He had heard that the bar did not like being presided over by a layman and that witnesses were constantly subjected to gross insult. In à'like instance 15 cases had boen set down for tnal and only three convictions obtained ; this could not he right; there must be something wrong somewhere; ab the same time he did not think the proposal of Mr. Houghton would cure it and there- fore he could not support tho motion.
