J. T. JONES,
Deputy Clerk of the Peace, County of York.
Entered according to Act of the Parliament of Canada, in the year one thousand
eight hundred and eighty-nine, by CARSWELL & Co., in the office of the Minister of Agriculture.
PRINTED BY Thos. MOORE & Co., LAW PRINTERS 22 & 24 ADELAIDE ST. EAST,
IE foregoing Magistrates' Manual or Handy Book for
County Justices has been carefully compiled from the Revised Statutes of Canada and Ontario 1887, with the several amendments to date, which, owing to the changes made in the Procedure Act and Summary Convictions Act of 1869, have been found a necessity. It will be readily noticed that the first reference made under any head is to the Criminal Law, and then to the Revised Statutes of Canada, in order that those not supplied with the former may look to the latter. It was my intention at the outset to make this work much more concise, but as I proceeded I found that it was impossible to do so without very much interfering with its usefulness.
I have spent a great deal of time with a view to making this Manual as perfect as possible, and have had the assistance of two eminent barristers in this city, therefore I trust the work will be found very useful to those for whom it is intended.
J. T. JONES.
