THE; URfUCE: CASE. The Druce case was again before the courts on Friday. Justices Lawrance and Channell, sitting as a Divisional Court in the Queen's s Bench, heard arguments on the point whether the Home Secretary's licence was necessary before the body of T. C. Druce could be ex- humed from Highgate Cemetery, permission for which had been granted by Dr. Tristram, judge of the Consistory Court of London. Counsel for Mr. Druce said it was understood that the interveners had dropped their oppo- sition, but it had since been discovered that, oontrary to their undertaking, the interveners had gone behind Mrs. Druce's back, prejudiced the Home Office, and insisted that it would be a public scandal if exhumation were carried out; also that they had threatened the ceme- tery company. The only application to the Home Office in connection with this case was in 1897, when very little was known. Since then, however, many fresh facts had trans- pired, and he thought it highly probable if another application was made to the Home Secretary now the necessary licence would be granted. Their Lordships found that no authority had been cited to show that the Chancellor of the Consistory Court had any authority to order the body to be disinterred, while. admittedly, he had authority to grant leave for its being, subject to the assent of the direc- j tors of the cemetery company. The rule for- bidding the Chancellor to cite the cemetery company would, therefore, be made absolute.
