Annual Report of the

INSPECTOR OF DIVISION COURTS

For the Province of Ontario

FOR THE YEAR ENDING 31st DECEMBER, 1919

ToEONTo, March 5th, 1930. To His Honour Lionel H. Clauke,

Lieutenant-Oovenior of the Province of Ontario. jMay it Please Your Honour:

I have the houour to present the Annual Eeport of the business of the Division Courts of the Pro\dnce of Ontario for the year ending 31st December, 1919, including a list of officials, a description of the limits of boundaries of the divisions in each county and district, a list of county officials, including the Judges, County Crown Attorneys and Clerks of the Peace.

The business transacted during the year shows a slight decrease in volume as compared with last j-ear.

The Clerk's Association passed a resolution, among others, at their last meeting asking for increased jurisdiction, claiming that in consequence of the excessive cost of commodities, a debtor could so easily contract a debt much in excess of the present jurisdiction.

The increased jurisdiction asked for would, if granted, permit of many cases being tried in the Division Court, instead of the County Court, and the costs would be taxed at a much lower scale than in the County Court.

If this becomes law it will add materially to the business of Division Courts, and will in my opinion, be of great benefit to. litigants in general who use these oourts.

The business for the year is shown under the following tables as follows :

Table " A." Statement of all Division Court business.

Table "B" List of all Division Court Clerks with their Post Office addresses, etc.

Table '' C."— List of all Bailiffs.

Table " D " Limits and boundaries of the divisions, tariff of fees, etc.

The Division Court Board met at Walkerton on June 20th, 1919, and acting under section 15 and subsections of the Division Courts Act, the Sixth Division Court of the County of Bruce at Tiverton, was abolished, and the territory com- prising it was distributed and added to the 3rd, 4th and 5th Divisions.

I am of opinion, that several other small offices should be a!)olished also.

Owing to the small amount of business transacted, and the correspondingly isinall emoluments, it is difficult to find men to fill many of these offices.

Where the duties can be combined with some other employment it works out more satisfactorily, but tliis is not always possible to arrange.

[4]

1920 IXSPECTOR OF DIVISION COUETS.

Xo legislation was enacted during the past Session affecting Division Couits.

A careful inspection of the 338 offices is continuously going on, and entails a great deal of labour when considered in connection with the vast extent of territory to be covered, embracing as it does the whole Province of Ontario, and I wish to bear testimony to the zeal and integrity of the officials of the courts throughout the Province, many of whom are at times confronted with difficult problems, and with one or two exceptions, their duties are discharged in a most satisfactory manner.

Changes are continually taking place in the officials of the courts, througl) death, resignation, etc., and in all cases, returned soldiers are given preference for the vacant positions if they can at all meet the requirements.

All of which is respectfully submitted.

I have the honour to be.

Your Honour's obedient servant,

J. B. Macdonald, ' ~ Inspector.
