The IIigh Steward.

The BenesGhallus, or High Steward, is appointed by the Chan*
cellar, and approved by Convocation. His special duty is to hear and
determine criminal causes of the gravest kind, such as treason and
felony, at the mandate of the Chancellor, and according to the laws of
the land and the privileges of the University, whenever the prisoner is
a scholar or privileged person resident within the precinct of the Uni-
versity. The office is holden for life. There is also a Deputy Steward,
appointed in like manner. The ancient stipend of the High Steward
is £5 a-year ; the Deputy Steward has £2.

The privilege of having such criminal causes tried by an Officer of
the University was first granted by Henry IV in 1406 ; and, although the
language of his charter is quite consistent with the supposition that the
office of High Steward was in existence previously, there is no record
to shew that it really did exist before that time. Indeed the Registers
of the University supply no name of any High Steward for nearly fifty
years afterwards.

The Vice-Chancellor.

The Chancellors from the earliest times, even when they were still
resident in the University, were assisted in the administration of justice
and in the discharge of other business by Deputies, whose number
varied, and who perhaps were often appointed for special purposes
rather than for definite periods of time. These Officers were for the
most part called Commissaries ; till in the middle of the sixteenth
century the title Pro-CFancellor or Vice-Chancellor began to be em-
ployed, the latter of which, from the year 1574, has quite superseded
the ancient name. The Commissaries appear to have been always
nominated by the Chancellors, except for the few years during which
the Edwardine Statutes, given by the King's Visitors in 1549, were in
full force. In 1568 the Earl of Leicester set aside the right of free
election, which those statutes had vested in the House of Congregation,
and resumed the ancient practice. The office seems to have become
annual in the earlier part of the sixteenth century.

Under the Laudian Statutes the Vice-Chancellor is annually
nominated by the Chancellor from the Heads of Colleges. The Letters
of nomination are read in Convocation, shortly before the beginning of
Michaelmas Term, by the Senior Proctor, and the new Vice-Chancellor
then immediately makes the requisite declarations, and enters upon
his office. The Vice-Chancellor appoints four deputies, or Pro-
Vice-Chancellors, from the Heads of Colleges, who are to exercise his
power in case of his illness or necessary absence from the University.
The office of late has been generally holden for four years.

A small portion of the annual benefaction of c£'200, bequeathed to
the University by Nathaniel, Lord Crewe, Bishop of Durham, who
died in 1721, and also a small benefaction from Sir Henry Savile,
were assigned to the Vice-Chancellor ; and a bequest of John "Wills, D.D.,
Warden of Wadham College, who died in 1806, produces about ,£240
a year for the endowment of the office. Under a Statute, which was
passed in 1855, the annual income is made up to £600 from the
University Chest.
