THE condition of the Scottish Bar would not matter a tinker's curse to anyone but the unfortunates who are compelled, or the misguided who are induced, to litigate, if it were not for the fact that a great deal in Scotland derives in tone and temper from the Parliament House in Edinburgh. What this tone and temper may be becomes an affair of some national significance since we are obliged to seek the explanation of various Scottish phenomena among the wigs and gowns that cluster behind St. Giles, in a degree which would be quite unjustified in the case of the Inns of Court and the Temple.
