THE NEW MARRIAGE ACT. REGULATIONS COMING IN FORCE NEXT MONTH. We have received a copy of the rules and regulations prescribed under the Marriage Act of 1898, which comes into operation on the nrst day of next month. They are issued for guidance of authorised persons and of the 6S governing bodies of registered K ings in which marriages may be solem-• r-ised without the presence of a registrar. No registered building can be used for the pur- ?0Se lm*ess -the Registrar-General 19 satisfied that sufficient security exists for the due registration of marriages, and for the safe custody ot the registers, and that an authorised person has been duly certified. The presence of such juit-honsed person is essential for a. marriage under this Act. and authorised persons cannot act outside their own registra- tion district. Trustees are held responsible for. comnliance with the Act during any vacancy in office of authorised persons. A marriage must not take place unless certificate or licence be m the possession of the authorised nerson, and two or more creditable witnesses are present. The f?Rclaratory land contracting words must be clearly repeated by -lie parties to the marri- age. If omitted to be spoke'i by the partie the marriage will not be valid. Anvenc mak- ing false statements in the register will be sub- ject to the mne penalties as he were guilty of nerjurv, and anyone re^nsivic or omitting to register a marriage is liafo'e to a penalty of £50. These rei'nlations. which are published 4]10 pric" of 9,11,1., may be obtained from the Queen's printers.
