LONDON, FEBRUARY 4, 1854.

When the Chancery Commissioners recommended the resolutions which ultimately became embodied in the Chancery Improvement Act, they made one great mistake on the subject of evidence. The mistake was of a twofold character: first, as to the mode of taking evidence; secondly, as to the machinery to be organised for taking it. It was a grave mistake of principle to interpose examiners between the witnesses and the Court. It was a very great mistake, in reference to practice, to suppose that .two examiners could do half the work that would have to be done. Experience has shewn what a very little reflection might have foreseen, that, if the greater part of the evidence in Chancery causes is to be taken by examiners, not two, nor three, nor six, nor ten examiners will be sufficient. In fact, not a sitting of the Court passes, in or out of term, without numerous appointments of special examiners, because the two official examiners' offices are full.

Now, if the system of examiners to take evidence out of court, and the bringing into court at the trial a record of the evidence, were fit to be continued, we should go into some detail to consider what would be the best plan for increasing the examining staff of the Court. But as we conceive that the system of separate examiners lias failed signally, and must be very soon abolished, it seems to us that it would be useless to enter on the subject. To consider the best way of mending a machine utterly defective on principle, when it is as easy, and not more, or very little more, expenVol. XVIII. D

sive to substitute for it another machine founded on a sound principle, would be very bad engineering, and we shall not fatigue our readers with the attempt.

On the subject of evidence in courts [of equity we have no hesitation in laying down the following two broad propositions:—

I. No contested case of any kind, interlocutory or otherwise, should ever be determined on affidavits alone, but the witnesses, whether parties or not, should be liable to cross-examination viva, voce.

II. Every examination viva voce should be taken, when it is reasonably practicable, openly before the judge, who has the whole case opened before him, and has to determine the questions in relation to which the evidence is tendered.

The objection to evidence on affidavit only is, that it is wholly volunteer evidence, and therefore never sought, except from persons whose views, whether from bias or otherwise, are likely to be in accordance with those of the party seeking it; nor is ever tendered, unless, to at least a great extent, it does support the case of the party tendering it. In this it would be, to some extent, like the evidence of a witness examined orally in chief; but the difference is, that tho latter, though intending, honestly or dishonestly, to be favourable to the party calling him, may by cross-examination be turned into an unfavourable witness. But the affidavit witness cannot as such be made to say anything but what he has said in chief. He may be, it is true, contradicted by another witness, but that is very different from being forced into neutralising wholly or partially his own original evidence. In the one case, his evidence is necessarily demolished, by shewing him to be inconsistent with himself. In the other, a mere conflict of evidence is set up, perhaps without any means existing by which the judge is to see which is the better evidence. Ex gr., suppose Mr. Brunei »ud some unknown engineer opposed as witnesses on an engineering question: if Mr. Brunei makes a statement in chief, and i3 led by cross-examination to qualify it, the qualification comes with exactly the same force as theassertion; but if the qualification comes from the unknown, the question arises at once whose evidence is
