Jax directed by the local government board to forward herewith a copy of their order of the 17th of May, 1878, prescribing the registration authorities for the purposes of the Canal Boats Act, 1877, and also a copy of their order of the 20th of March, 1878, comprising regulations under sect. 2 of that act. the regulations comprised in the orders came into force on the 30th day of June, 1978 ; and, as a consequence of the provision in sect. 1 of the act, a canal boat may has been registered in accordance with the act. after the expiration of six months from that date, be used as a dwelling until it

The omission from sect. 3 of the words "for the purpose of the Elementary Education Acts, 1870, 1873, and 1876," which are found in sect. 7, shows that the name of the place required by sect. 3 to be painted on the boat is that of the district of the registration authority and not that of the school district or part of a school district.

In every case, however, the place to which the boat is registered as belonging for the purposes specified in sects. 6 and 7 of the act should appear in the certificate of registration; and for requirement it wil be seen that the board have made provision in their Form (C.) of certificate in the schedule to the order of the 20th of March, 1878.

[merged small][ocr errors]

REGULATIONS OF THE 20TH MARCH, 1878.

(a) Application for Registry. Part I. of the Order of the 20th March last comprises regulations for the registration of canal boats under the act, including certificates of registration, and the fees in connection with such registration.

The first step in the process of registration will be taken by the owner. He should have the opportunity, when making his application to the registration authority, of specifying the time and place for the examination of the boat. If the time or place so specified be inconvenient to the registration authority, they will, doubtless, inform the owner to that effect, and some other time or place will be fixed by mutual consent.

Under Art. 1 the owner, besides informing the registration authority of a time and place at which the boat may be examined, is to furnish such other information as the authority may require in relation thereto.

The board have not included a form of application in their order, since they have assumed that the particulars will vary with local circumstances. But they think that delay in the preliminary arrangements, will frequently be obviated if the authority to whom an owner may apply for registration are in a position to furnish him with a printed statement of the points upon which they may desire information before proceeding with the examination of the boat.

(b) The Examining Officer and his Report. Art. 2 provides for the appointment or employment, remuneration and duties of the person whom the registration authority may select to examine and report apon canal boats, the owners whereof have applied for registration.

The report of this officer is to be in the Form A. in the schedule to the order, and is to be submitted to the registration authority at their next ordinary meeting or at a special meeting to be called for the purpose.

Before adverting to the details of the form of report, the board have to draw attention to a provision in the act that renders the information which the report will supply of special importance. By sect. 2 it is enacted that the registration authority shall register every canal boat which conforms to the conditions of registration provided by the regulations of the board for the number of persons allowed by those regulations to dwell therein,

The statute thus recognizes the act of registration as a function of the authorities themselves, and one which they cannot delegate to their officers. It also imposes upon the authorities an obligation to register in every case where the boat conforms to the conditions of registration.

Hence it is obvious that the registration authority, when required to decide as to whether they will register or refuse to register a boat, must have before them complete information with regard to all the details which are comprised in the prescribed conditions of registration.

This information the examining officer's report (Form A.) is intended to supply.

It will be noticed that the form of report requires the examining officer to state the name, or if there be no name, the number of the boat. This information is rendered necessary by the terms of sect. 3 of the act, in accordance with which the two certificates of registration should identify the owner and the boat; and, as the board learn that in some instances the boats bear numbers and are unnamed, the number, which will be that assigned by the owner, and will be distinct from the number assigned by the registration authority, will be a suitable mode of identification.

In describing the nature of the traffic in which the boat is accustomed or intended to be employed, the examining officer should be careful to ascertain whether the boat is intended to carry any foul or offensive cargo. For a boat so used, the special pre
