THE EDITORS have endeavoured in this work to place before the profession, in as convenient and concise a form as possible, an annotated collection of the various Statutes and Rules relating to the procedure of the Supreme Court in its Common Law Jurisdiction.
It is now several years since Mr. Pilcher's very useful edition of the Common Law Procedure Acts was published. Since then, those Acts have been consolidated, new enactments relating to practice have become law, new Rules brought into force; finally, the whole of the Rules have been consolidated; and the cases in our own Courts on practice have so multiplied that it became evident a new work on the subject was urgently needed by the profession.
Before the work of consolidation was determined upon, Mr. Rolin, one of the present Editors, and Mr. Ferguson, also of the Bar, began to prepare an Annotated Collection of the Statutes and Rules on the subject, but this was delayed owing to the announcement of the proposed consolidation. Mr. Ferguson, subsequently, owing to the pressure of other business, found it impossible to give up the time necessary for the preparation of a work of this nature. The present Editors then undertook the work.
As in Mr. Pilcher's edition of the Common Law Procedure Acts, the notes to the English Acts contained in Mr. Day's book have been in part reprinted. On many subjects, however, such as New Trial, Discovery and Inspection, Attachment of Debts, Privy Council Appeals, and others, the cases in our own Courts are SO numerous and exhaustive that it has been thought sufficient to confine the notes to those cases and the later English decisions.
The Editors desire to express their acknowledgment of the assistance rendered them in the revision of the proofs and otherwise by Mr. C. A. White, Barrister-at-Law.
