Crention or the t'ourt Justified.
The establishment of a court to adjust
the terms of rental as between landlord
and tenant was declared by the former
class to be useless, in view of their human
ity and feudal ireiierosity. The section of
Itadicals beaded by Dr. Clarke. M. IV, w ith
jjreat difficulty pilot el the measure to vio-torj-,
aided by many pat hetic nppeals toths
public through the press of Knlaud from
persons who visited tlie Highlands and the
islands of Scotland, and told piteous tab-
of the effects of modem land tenures upon
the race dwelling there. The event has
amply justified the creation of the court.
The court examines every farmer, and
questions farmers, bailiffs, and owners in
true cadi fashion.

Millions of pounds have thus Iteen trans
ferred from one side of the liiilanee sheet to
the other from the pockets of the land
lords to those of the crcfters, in effect. A
' careful estimate places the average reduc

II in "Generosity" Was No Go.
Tli? decisions in regard to rents on Sir
Kenneth Mat heson's enormous estates iu
Hosshire rendered Thursday evening are
typical. Sir Kenueth, in anticipation of a
visit of the court, recently made a volun
tary reduction of rents on his estate of
from LDto-IO per cent., accompanying the
deed with no little flourishing of trump
et in advertisement of his "generosity."
His hope that the tenants would not. after
auch a concession, appeal to the land court
was disappointed. The intervention of the
court wan asked nevertheless, and after
duly considering all the cases brought be

The arrears are also reduced iu piojort ion.
London Tradesmen Feel It Effects.
The effect of the reduction of incomes
from land lias lieon shown in the curtail
ment of expenses on the part of Scotch
land owners, and Loudon tradesmen com
plain that they receive much less patron
age from this class than formerly. Econ
omy is the order of the day among the
owners, but the crofters have been greatly
relieved, and the complaints coming from
the region affected are comparatively few.
The land owners threaten to raise the ques-
tion of t le court's part iality and to apieal
; to pari i intent for a sett ing aside of its
' more riu'ical judgments, and if iuis.sil.lr
for a tot.d alxditiou of the tribunal.
A Very Forlorn Hope.

doubt th it rents would soon Ik- raised to a
1 point sul'icicnt to recompense t he owners
for all th 'y have lust through its decrees.
Hut then is no proliability that the house
of commons will act favorably upon such
a proposition. Kvcu the Tories agree
that som such method of settling the
rrofter agitation was absolutely necessary,
and while they sympathize with the land
lords the.' do not see tlie way clear to a re
