THE LATE MR. JOYNT.
TRIBUTES FROM BENCH AND BAR. [BY telegraph.-—press ASSOCIATION.] Christchurch, Friday. A largk number of local legal practitioners assembled at the' Supreme Court this morning, when reference was made to tho death of Mr. T. I. Joynt, K.C. His Honor (Mr. Justice Chapman) said that he need hardly say how deeply the death of Mr. Joynt would be felt in (lie district, for he had so long been associated with the profession and with the affairs of the province that his loss must make a great gap. As a professional man Mr. Joynt always stood at ihe forefront,'and in the conduct of his professional business set a notable example. He had known Mr. Joynt intimately for more than 30 years, and he always felt that he was one of those men with whom one could always sympathise, and in whose presence ono always felt responsive companionship. Mr. Joynt was known to tho profession throughout New Zealand, and he had no doubt that his /brother judges would feel what he felt. 'He had 'received telegrams from the Chief Justice and Mr. Justice Dcnniston expressing their sympathy. The closo personal association between His Honor the Chief Justice and Mr. Joynt when they were both professional men, was well known, and the circumstance that Mr;' Joynt had worked with honour and credit before Mr. Justice Denniston for so many years had naturally caused His Honor to feel deeply, the loss which the ' Christchurch Bar and he had sustained.
Mr. T. W. Stringer, K.C., said that on behalf of the Christ-church Bar he desired to say that they cordially endorsed the kindly expressions that His Honor had given utterance to with regard to their late colleague. Personally, he felt his loss very deeply. He had been articled to him in 1874, when Mr. Joynt was at the zenith of his career, as one of the most able and strenuous advocates of the day. Since that time he had enjoyed the closest personal and professional friendship with him, and he fully agreed with what His Honor had said, that the zeal Mr. Joynt always displayed in any cause that was entrusted to him, a.nd the care and tinremitting attention that he gave to any business, was an example not only to his pupils who served him, but to the younger members of the profession generally.
