A HIGH COUIIT OF JUDICATURE F?IR WALES —Mr Morgan Lloyd, Q.O., in an article to appear in the forlhcoming issue of Y Geninm (The ú"k), tbe Welsh national quarterly, sets forth I h. claims of Wales to having a High Court of Judicature. He points out that from the time of Henry VIII. down to the year 1830 there were national high courts for the Principality, possesHing all the powers of the Queen's Bench and Chancery divisions, and two judges, who travelled from county to county to administer justice. It was true that those courts were not perfect and that considerable corruption was perceptible in their administration, but they could easily have been reformed and rendered a great advantage to the country. Instead of being reformed they were, how- ever, swept away, and in their places English oourts were arranged for Wales without any attempt being made to adapt them to the necessities of the people. The tendency of the present day was to establish hih courts in the chief towns of the king'iom and if Liverpool, Manchester, Leeds, and Birmingham, obtained those advantages the Welsh people had a right to ask that their ancient high courts should he r"-<tahlished on a reform jd basu adapted to the requirements of the times. Judges should be appointed who had a knowledge of the language of the people, and power should he given to use either the Welsh or English IIID!!U8L:(". hr the barristers and solicitors appearing in the oourts.
