Wednesday.. 14 General paper.



Friday, the 26th day of December, 1879. Whereas from the present state of the business before the Master of the Rolls, the Vice-Chancellor Sir James Bacon, and Mr. Justice Fry, it is expedient that a portion of the causes assigned to the Master of the Rolls, and now standing for trial or hearing before big lordship, should be transferred to the Vice-Chancellor Sir James Bacon ; and that the causes so to be transferred should for the purpose only of trial or hearing be transferred from the Vice-Chancellor Sir James Bacon to Mr. Justice Fry ; Now I, the right honourable Hagh MacCalmont Earl Cairns, Lord High Chancellor of Great Britain, do hereby order that the several causes set forth in the schedule hereto be accordingly transferred from the Master of the Rolls to the Vice-Chancellor Sir James Bacon, and taken as causes assigned to the Vice-Chancellor Sir James Bacon, and be marked in the cause-books accordingly. And I do further order that the same causes, when

These sittings commence on Monday, January 12th.
