COUNTY COURT BUSINESS.

COUNTY COURT BUSINESS. THE gradual accumulation of unsettled county court cases at Aberystwyth has at length become so serious as to call for immediate remedy. Suitors cannot obtain justice, and everybody brought into contact with the County Court is in- convenienced to a degree that would justify and will doubtless bring about an appeal to the LORD CHANCELLOR. His Lordship would probably direct such an arrangement to be made as would secure the transaction of all the business without the necessity arising for repeated adjournments, references, and compromises never contemplated by law. The work of the Court clearly demands a two days' sitting every month, and requires that there shall be something like a month's time between or.e court and another. Under the present arrangements sometimes six weeks elapse. before there is a court, and at other times only three. In February a court was held on the 22nd, the next was held on the 14th of March, » day short of three weeks. The next court was held on the 25th of April, showing a lapse of six weeks. The court on the 16th of May again gives only three weeks from that of the preceding month. The last court, on the 27th of June, once more shows six weeks. When only three weeks elapse between the courts a few cases are adjourned that the busines may be got over in one day when six weeks elapse many cases have to be adjourned to get over the business in two days. The conse- quences of this attempt to do the work in three days every two months, instead of in four days, are most unpleasant to everybody concerned, and if the Judge does not feel disposed to arrange his work with more regard to its effi- cient performance, representations must be made, however reluctantly, to the LORD CHANCELLOR. The grievance here pointed out is notby any means an imaginary one, as will be readily admitted by those who have had the misfortune to attend the court either as jurymen, witnesses, advocates, or defendants. It cannot be said that the Judge has a. happy way of getting through complicated cases, and he might without loss of dignity make up for slowness by allowing himself at least as much time as his predecessors, who gave Aber- ystwyth two days a month. Every two months one day's county court business is allowed to settle itself or remain unsettled.
