Government Notices, Proclamations, and Ordinances together with an
Appendix containing the Regulations promulgated and enacted
PUBLISHED BY AUTHORITY.
The Statute Law of Griqualand West comprises Government Notices and Proclamations issued by Sir Henry Barkly and the local Commissioners immediately after the annexation of Griqualand West as British Territory, and the Ordinances passed by the local legislature between 1874 and the date of the annexation of the Province to the Colony on the 15th October, 1880. For facility of reference, repealed, abrogated, or lapsed Proclamations and Ordinances are retained, but are printed in small type (nonpareil), and have been indexed separately.
A chronological list of all legislative enactments will be found in the Table of Contents.
The running numbers to the Proclamations, &c., contained in Pages 1 to 76 inclusive, which were attached to them when the first volume of Mr. Recorder Barry's edition of the Griqualand West Statute Law was printed, have been retained in accordance with the provisions of Ordinance No. 1 of 1876 (p. 177).
Act No. 39 of 1877, providing for the annexation of Griqualand West to the Cape Colony, has been inserted after the Ordinances passed during the year 1880, for the sake of convenience and to show the position of Griqualand West legislation at the date of Annexation.
Two appendices have been added. Appendix No. 1 contains all regulations, &c., promulgated from time to time in pursuance of statutory provisions; consecutive numbers have been attached to them for the sake of convenience. A reference to the Table of Contents or to the Index will indicate the subjects to which they refer.
Appendix No. 2 contains certain important Ordinances in force in the Orange Free State relating to the working of Mines and the trade in diamonds.
It must be observed that the effect of the legislation of the Session of 1882 does not appear in this volume.
