Supreme Court Fees.
Power is given to the Chief Justice to settle a scale of fees & items for which fees may be taken & to vary such scale from time to time.
The scale is not to take effect until it has been approved by the Govr & appeared for a month in the Govt Gazette.
Sufficient scales of fees may be made for different parts of the Colony. I should have thought it more convenient to have had one uniform scale for the whole Colony. But this is a matter upon which the local Legislature may be left to judge for themselves.
