PREFACE.



rriHE object of this book is to furnish a Commentary on the
-■- Bills of Sale Acts in direct connection, as far as possible,
with the language of the Acts: With this view certain topics
capable of separate treatment are dealt with in a general intro-
duction, and in the later parts of the work the repealed Acts
are printed for reference, and the Acts now in force are fully
annotated in chronological order. The Author trusts that the
book will be thought sufficiently distinctive in method to justify
its publication, and that practitioners will find it a convenient
and trustworthy guide to a peculiarly difficult subject.

There are some features of novelty in the interpretation of
the Acts put forward in this book, to the more important of
which it seems right to call attention here.

1. It is pointed out that Section 4 of the Act of 1878 lays
down two rules relating to fixtures, that trade machinery is
excepted out of the negative rule, but not out of the affii^mative
rule, and consequently that Section 5 must be read as logically
dependent upon the negative rule in Section 4. This distinction
is essential for the determination of the question whether an
instrument assigning or charging trade machinery is a Bill of
Sale within Section 4, or is merely " deemed to be a Bill of Sale "
under Section 5.

2. It is pointed out that the phrase " deemed to be a Bill of
Sale," used in Section 5, is identical with that used in Section 6,
and therefore that the principle of Green v. Marsh (1892, 2 Q. B. 380),
decided by the Court of Appeal with reference to Section 6, must
also, if sound, apply equally to instruments which are deemed to
be Bills of Sale within Section 5.

3. An attempt is made to show that Ch-een v. Marsh itself
rests upon a misconstruction of Section 3 of the Act of 1882, and
that, on the true construction of that Section, the Act of 1882
applies only to instruments which are within the definition of a
Bill of Sale in Section 4 of the Act of 1878, and not at all to
instruments which are deemed to be Bills of Sale under Section 5
or Section 6.

PREFACE.



4. The Author has ventured to sucrgest an interpretation of the
important enactment as to the omission to register a "defeasance,
condition, or declaration of trust," contained in Section 10 of the
Act of 1878, and a view of the relation between that enactment
and the statutory form, which, if it is well founded, goes some
way to elucidate a very difficult class of cases.

5. In construing Sections 4, 5, and 6 of the Act of 1882 the
Author has largely relied on the reasoning of the Privy Council in
Tennant v. Hoioatson (1888, 13 App. Ca. 489) with respect to the
similar Sections of the corresponding Trinidad Ordinance (No. 15
of 1884). It would be idle to suppose that any construction of
these Sections is entirely free from objection ; but it is submitted
that the construction adopted by the Privy Council gets rid
at least of the more formidable difficulties which were felt
by the Lords Justices in the recent case of Seed v. Bradley
(1894, 1 Q. B. 819).

6. In expounding the relation between the doctrine of reputed
ownership and the Act of 1882, the Author has adopted in substance
the decision of Miller, J., in In re Stanley (1886, 17 L. R. Ir. 487).
In spite of the strange silence of text-writers on that case, and of
the slighting comment of Cave, J., on the head-note thereto (see
i/ic parte Slater, re Webber, 1891, 64 L. T. 426), it seems to the
Author to be not only good law, but elementary good sense, that
a person who cannot refuse cannot consent.

Where cases are cited in the text a reference to one i-eport
only, with the date, is generally given. Other contemporary
references will be found in the Table of Cases.

No one can be more sensible of tlie imperfections of this
book, notwithstanding the great care and labour which it has
cost, than the Author, who now respectfully submits it to the
judgment of the Profession.
