Mr CROUCH - Thenit should be given in this section, as to issue a summons is an administrative act, while the definition of " court " includes a justice of the peace acting in a judicial capacity only. I understand that, the object of the bill is to overcome difficulties which arise in border towns and in country districts. I am glad that the measure has been introduced. It will help a number of people, particularly in the country, who find it convenient to avail themselves of the services of justices of the peace; andany measure that will serve public convenience should be strongly supported.
