NEW LAWS IN FORCE. Additional statutes came into forco with the 1st of January—the Weights and Measures Act, 1889, the Factors' Act, 1889, and the Arbitration Act, 1889. The tormer amends in several par- ticulars the Weights and Measures Act of 1878, and other enactments regarding the sale of bread and coal. All weights and weighing machines are to be verified and stamped, and heavy penal- ties may be inflicted for iufringement of the law. The Board of Trade may, from time: to time, cause new denominations of standards for the measurement of electricity, temperature pressure, or gravities, as occasion may require tor trade purposes. Coal is to be sold by weight except by consent of tbe purchaser, and bakers must weigh bread, if desired by the buyer, before selling it. The Factors' Act deals almost entirely with property and commercial transactions, and is really a consolidation of previous Factors' Acts. Another act which comes into force is tho Com- missioners for Oaths Act, 1889, introduced by Lord Halsbury, to consolidate such statutes as were still in force at home or abroad relating I to the administration of oaths by commissioners, consuls, and other officers.
