A PRETTY BLUNDER.
WELLINGTON, October 9.
A singular oversight has been made by the Justice Department in regard to the administration of the bankruptcy law. The Bankruptcy Court is a distinct tribunal constituted by statute, and jurisdiction in it must bo specially assigned to a Judge by Order-in-Council. The necessity of so assigning was overlooked in the appointments of Acting Judge Ward and Mr Justice Denniston. Steps have been taken to have it done at once, but the Government do not anticipate any serious result from the omission, and are considering what steps they should take in the direction of validating all that has been done in error.
