His Excellency the Governor-General in Council.
Whereas the Lieutenant-Governor of the Province of British Columbia, with the
Legislative Assembly of that Province, did, on the eighteenth day of April, 1877, pass
the undermentioned Acts which have been transmitted, entitled as follows, viz. :—
"An Act to provide for the better Administration of Justice."
"An Act to incorporate the Alexandra Company (Limited)."
"An Act to incorporate the British Columbia Insurance Company (Limited)."
And whereas the said Acts have been laid before the Governor-General in Council,
together with a report from the Minister of Justice, setting forth that he is of opinion
that it was not competent for the Legislature of the Province of British Columbia to
pass such Acts, and therefore recommending that the said Acts should not receive the
confirmation of the Governor-General.
His Excellency the Governor-General has thereupon this day been pleased, by and
with the advice of his Privy Council, to declare his disallowance of the said Acts, and
the same are hereby disallowed accordingly.
Whereof the Lieutenant-Governor of the Province of British Columbia and all other
persons whom it may concern are to take notice and govern themselves accordingly.
(Signed)       W. A. Himsworth,
Clerk of the Queen's Privy Council for Canada.
I, Frederick Temple, Earl of Dufferin, Governor-General of Canada, do hereby
certify that the Acts passed by the Legislature of the Province of British Columbia, the
eighteenth day of April, 1877, entitled "An Act to provide for the better Administration
of Justice;" "An Act to incorporate the Alexandra Company (Limited);" "An Act to
incorporate the British Columbia Insurance Company, (Limited)," were received by me
on the twenty-second day of May, A.D. 1877.
Given under my hand and seal this sixteenth day of May, 1878.
