so liable [or, the highway board, 27 & 28 Vict. c. 101, s. 24) may
apply to any justice of the peace for the purpose of making such
highway a highway to be repaired and maintained by the parish in
which the same is situate ;--and such justice shall issue summonses
requiring the waywarden of such parish, the district surveyor, and
the party so liable to repair such highway as aforesaid, to appear
before two or more justices in petty sessions assembled, and the
justices at such petty sessions shall proceed to examine and deter-
mine the matter, and shall, if they think fit, make an order under
their hands that such highway shall thereafter be a highway to be
thereafter repaired and maintained by the parish, and shall in such
order fix a certain sum to be paid by such person or corporation to
the highway board of the district, in full discharge of all claims
thereafter in respect of the repair and maintenance of such highway;

I. Analysis of the Acts. Purposes for which Societies may be established.] By 25 & 26 Vict. c. 87, s. 2, societies registered under 15 & 16 Vict. c. 31, are entitled to obtain without fee a certificate of registration on application to the registrar of friendly societies. By sect. 3, “any number of persons, not being less than seven, may establish a society under this act for the purpose of carrying on any labour, trade, or handicraft, whether wholesale or retail [except the working of mines and quarries, but this exception is repealed by 30 & 31 Vict. c. 117, s. 1). and except the business of banking, and of applying the profits for any purposes allowed by the Friendly Societies Acts, or otherwise permitted by law.” By 34 & 35 Vict. c. 80, s. 6, the buying and selling land is to be deemed to be a “trade." By 30 & 31 Fict. c. 117, s. 2, a society registered under this act may hold in its registered name any amount of interest in any other society so registered; but if any other person hold or claim in any society so registered any interest exceeding £200 sterling, such person shall incur a penalty equal to the excess of such interest over such sum.

Two copies of them are to be forwarded to the registrar of friendly societies, which are to be dealt with by him as provided by “The Friendly Societies Act

, 1875";—and his certificate of registration is to be conclusive evidence that the society has been duly registered, and thereupon the members become a body corporate by the name therein
