one description of shares. If there be more descriptions of shares than these columns suffice for, additional columns can be used accordingly.

Columns 4 and 8 are for the aggregate number of the respective kinds of shares held by each proprietor, as 20, 50, &c. Columns i and 6,--9 and 10,—are for the numbers of the respective shares themselves; and can be filled either by entering the number of every share, or by entering the first and last number held by the proprietor, where they run in an uninterrupted sequence of numbers: thus, the entries in columns 4, 5, 6, may be 20, 121, 140, respectively, meaning 20 shares, from No. 121 to No. 140; and columns 8, 9, 10, may be filled in like manner, according to circumstances.

Columns 7 and 11 are for the amounts of Calls paid up in each case.

The Register is to be made up to one fortnight before each hallyearly ordinary meeting, and is to be sealed at such meeting ; (99,17).

Subsidiary to this register, so made up to a specific date, and which cannot be altered after it is sealed, some other book or books must be kept, as a “Working Register,” &c., in nearly similar form, for entering up from day to day, the changes by Transfer or Transmission of Shares, in the intervals between the half-yearly meetings.

The following is a corresponding form of Register where the Shares have been consolidated into Stock, under $ 62 of the same act: and the foregoing observations apply generally, mutatis mutandis, to this form likewise.

Description or Designation. |

Place of Address.

The Shareholders Address Book may most conveniently be an Index-Book, with a sufficient number of leaves for each letter of the alphabet, giving space to admit of the list of Shareholders and their Addresses being kept always written up in the book.

The names should be entered in the alphabetical order of Surnames, as nearly as additions and alterations from time to time will admit. In the case of Corporations, the corporate name is to be entered ($ 10); and in the case of Joint Shareholders, they should be arranged according to the alphabetical precedence of the first pame ($ 78, 137).

A sufficient description and address should be given for identification of the party, including his post town. In the case of Corporations, their place of business is to be entered (§ 10).

No. 10.–Form of Register of Mortgages or Debenture Bonds,


[blocks in formation]

Observations. The foregoing form (No. 10) is adapted to the Registry of Bonds and of Transfers of them in one and the same book, so as to simplify and concentrate the registry, and in strict compliance with the Act, which requires in regard to a Transfer “an Entry or Memorial thereof to be made in the same manner as in the case of the original Mortgage,”—(8 47).

But where the transactions are too extensive for this, the registry can be made in two books, one for the original bonds, and one for transfers, though this necessarily involves a repetition of some of the particulars, which must be entered in both books so as to identify the Bonds trarisferred.

A sufficient number of lines should be left for each Bond entered, to admit of transfers being entered after it.

The Columns for “ Act, 185—," can be used to distinguish Bonds
