Not illustrated. 1884 edition. Excerpt: ...We find chapter 10 a consolidation of several Acts. The greater portion of it, however, is found in 32 Vic. ch. 21, (0.) where nearly all the penalty clauses are found, with the exception of sections 152, 153, and 181, above referred to, sections 152-3 being taken from 39 Vic. ch. 10, and 181, from 37 Vic. ch. 2. Referring to 32 Vic. ch. 21, we find section 4-of ch. 10 R. S. O., substantially the same as section 2 of this Act. We note that no section of this Act provides for the recovery of any penalty except the general provision in section 77, which is consolidated in chapter 10 R. S. 0., as section 182. We further find section 2 taken from chapter 6 of the Consol. Stats. 0., section-1. By sub-section 2 of section 1 of chapter 6, Consol. Stat. Can, we find that the sum of $2,000 is to be " recovered by such person as shall sue for the same," &c. This chapter 6 has also a section, No. 87, providing for the recovery of penalties, with full costs of suit, by any person who will sue for the same, 850. Section 1, it will be observed, contains no provision as to " costs Of suit." We find section 1 consolidated from 20 Vic. ch.. 22, sec, 2, and section 87 from 12 Vic. ch. 27, sec. 64. Turning to ch. 22 of 20 Vic. we find that there are only two sections providing for penalties or forfeitures, viz: sections 2 and 5, each of which declares a forfeiture of $2,000, and provides for its recovery. There is no other' section providing for recovery of penalties or forfeitures. Again, looking at 12 Vic. ch. 27, we find very many sections declaring offences and affixing the penalty, but only one providing for the recovery, viz: section 55; while section 6% is a general clause providing for the recovery of all more
