PREFACE. 



To the Bench and Bar of Georgia: 

The Code of Georgia, 1895, has been described by a competent 
authority to be the best law book ever published. I cordially sub- 
scribe to that opinion. It will remain an enduring monument to 
the ability and wisdom of the distinguished lawyers who codified the 
same under the authority of the State. That Code embraces the 
public acts of the Legislature down to and including the session laws 
of 1895. Many and important changes in the law, however, have 
been enacted since the adoption of the Code of 1895 — that is to say, 
during the years 1896, 1897, 1898, 1899, and 1900. Some cf the 
public acts or session laws for these years are out of print, the 
edition having been exhausted. The purpose of this code supple- 
ment is to classify and codify all of the laws of a public and 
permanent nature which have been enacted since the adoption of 
the Code of 1895. I have not felt at liberty to change the phraseol- 
ogy of the enacting part of statutes, even where the phraseology 
was involved or obscure, or manifestly erroneous as printed, but I 
have set out the statutes in tot verb., simply pruning off the formal 
words usual to legislative enactments. The new laws will be found 
codified in § 6037 to § 6758 inclusive. 

I concluded that to make an index to the supplement by itself 
would create confusion, there being already three separate indexes, one 
at the end of each of the three volumes of the code of 1895. I have, 
therefore, prepared an index to the entire Code of 1895, and of the 
acts passed subsequently, which are embraced in this Code Supple- 
ment. Not being restricted for space, as were the eodifiers of the 
code of 1895, I have made the index exceedingly full, as will be 
readily seen upon inspection of it, having been careful to preserve 
rigidly the alphabetical order of arrangement of topics and of catch 
words under the topics, and also to select such catch words as would 
indicate at least the substance or germ of the matter attempted to 
be indexed. 

I have not made a separate index to the Political Code and the Civil 
Code, but have treated both of these Codes as one, as being, taken 
together, an embodiment of the civil law of force in this State. All 
of this matter, therefore, which is set out in volumes 1 and 2 of the 
code of 1895 will be found indexed together under the title "Civil 
Code," at the end of this volume. 

I have made also a new, separate, and very full index of the penal 
laws of the State, and the same will be found under the title "Penal 
Code," at the end of this volume. 

Lawyers in general practice, and particularly those who handle 
corporation cases, have frequent occasion to consult the session laws

PREFACE. 



in order to find local or private acts, such as laws affecting the 
various towns and cities of the state, insurance, bank, railroad and 
other corporations, the charters thereof, and the several amendments 
thereto, and the like. This of course involves much labor, as it 
requires the annual session laws to be pulled down and their separate 
indexes examined, which are often meager, and sometimes imper- 
fect. I have therefore prepared, and now present to the profession, 
an index to all of such local and private acts of the General As- 
sembly above indicated as are of public interest although of local 
application for the period of one hundred years, between the years 
1800 and 1900. The preparation of this index has been a work of 
great labor, but I have an abiding faith that it will prove a great 
labor-saving device to lawyers in active practice, to whom a few 
hours of time saved are often worth much more than the small cost of 
this volume. 

I have not attempted to set out the general tax acts, general 
appropriation acts, and the like, for while these laws are of a public 
and general nature, they are not of a permanent character, but 
their provisions are ever varying, with each recurring legislature. 
And so, many other acts which were of a public, but also of a 
temporary character, and which have now served their purpose, I 
have not attempted to codify. 

Much care and patience has been employed to secure accuracy 
in the production of this work, and I trust that but few errors will 
be found as the book submits itself to the crucial test of practical use 
in the hands of members of one of the most learned professions 
in the world. 

This work having brought down the public laws to the end of 
the century, arranged in code form, the cost to the State of raising 
a new code commission and having prepared a recodification of 
the laws, will probably be saved for many years to come. For this 
reason, I have seen proper to entitle the work "Supplement to the 
Code of 1895, Volume 4," and to have the same printed in the same 
form and quality as to size, type, paper, binding, etc., as volumes 1, 
2, and 3 of the code of 1895. " 

Since the Code of 1895 was adopted, the Constitution of the State 
has been changed, by the increase of the number of judges of the 
Supreme Court, resulting in a complete reorganization of that court. 
I have accordingly set out herein in full the reorganization act, 
and the various acts, rules, and orders passed in reference to this 
subject. Important changes and modifications in the rules of the 
supreme court have also resulted, and I have republished a full copy 
of the "Rules of the Supreme Court," as corrected and amended 
to date, and also the several rules, orders and statutes relating to 
the subject of "Admission to the Bar." 

I commit this work to the indulgent consideration of thoughtful 
and generous minds. Howard Vai^ Epps.

THE CODE OF THE STATE OF GEORGIA. 

PART I. 

Public Laws of a Civil Nature. 



TITLE I. 

APPROPRIATIONS. 

§ 60o7. [Explanatory note. — The general appropriation acts, 
while of a public, are not of a permanent nature. They are enacted 
only to cover a period of two years next following the date of en- 
actment. The following Supplement to the Code embraces acts 
which are not only of a public and general, but of a permanent 
nature. The general appropriation acts will, therefore, not be 
found set out herein. Persons interested in the contents and

nature. Persons interested in the contents of these enactments will 
be able to find them without difficulty in the front part of the Ses- 
sion Laws, or Annual Statutes, of each even year — 1900, 1898, 1896, 
and so on, counting backwards. ]

party so impounding them to give them all necessary care, feed, 
and attention, for which he shall have such compensation as is allowed 
sheriffs for like care, feed, and attention to stock. And it shall also 
be his duty to give the owner, if known, notice of the fact of such 
impounding in twenty-four hours, and if not known or ascertained 
within three days from the taking up and impounding, such animals 
shall be disposed of as provided by law in cases of estrays ; except that

thereof, requiring the owner or claimant of such stock to appear at 
a time and a place therein named, and which shall be served as other 
summons, at least three days before the time of hearing, when said 



§6153 PART I., TITLE VI. 40

justice shall proceed to hear evidence and give judgment against 
such owner or claimant for such damages as shall appear reasonable 
and just, including the expenses of care and feeding of such stock, 
and all legal costs, which shall be enforced by execution, levy and 
sale, as other judgments of such justice ; provided, nevertheless, that 
a special lien upon the trespassing animal or animals for the pay- 
ment of such judgment shall attach from the time of committing of 
such trespass, superior to all liens or previous claims, except public 
dues, and superior also to all exemptions under the homestead and 
exemption laws ; but the defendant in such case against whom a judg- 
ment for damages has been rendered may appeal to a jury, as other 

a. i90o, p. appeals are allowed in justices' courts ; [and provided further, that 
4d - in case of any litigation, as contemplated by this section, it shall be 

lawful for the owner of such animals to redeem or replevy the same 
by giving to the complaining party a bond, with good and sufficient 
security, conditioned to pay all damages and costs which may be 
finally recovered against him in such suit, said bond to be approved 
by the justice of the peace issuing the summons.]

trict ; at which election all persons who are qualified to vote, for mem- 
bers of the General Assembly, and who have been bona fide residents 
of said district for ninety days immediately preceding said 
election, shall be qualified to vote. The returns of said elections shall 
be made to the ordinary of said county, who, after examining the 
same and deciding upon all questions which may arise out of said 
election, shall proclaim the result by notice, as aforesaid. If the 
lawful majority in said elections is for stock law, then the provisions

upon the land of any person of said district or county, and have 
fences constructed across any public or private road; provided, that 
proper gates are established in such public or private roads ; [and a. 1899, p. 
provided further, that in no event shall the provisions of the stock 
law go into effect as the result of a militia district election hereafter 
held, until and unless within six months after such election (if in

A.^i896, p. g 6246. Failure of judge to certify in time not cause dismissal, 
when. — No bill of exceptions now pending in the Supreme Court, or 
that may hereafter be brought to said court, shall be dismissed upon 
the ground that the same was not certified by the judge in the time 
now required by law for tendering and signing bills of exceptions ; but 
if it shall appear from said bill of exceptions that the same was ten- 
dered to the judge within the time required by law, a mere failure on 
his part to sign the same within the time prescribed shall be no cause 
for the dismissal of the bill of exceptions, unless it should appear that 
the failure to sign and certify the same by the presiding judge within 
the time prescribed by law was caused by some act of the plaintiff in

additional compensation provided for in this Act shall be payable only 
out of the fund now arising and being collected in said court under 
existing laws as "sheriff's costs/'' viz. : one dollar and twenty-five 
cents in each case coming before said court. If said fund, by reason 
of the fact that so many cases are carried to said court in forma pau- 
peris, shall, in any given year, be insufficient to raise the sum of six 
hundred dollars, said sheriff shall receive, under this Act, only the 
amount actually collected. If, however, said fund, for any year, 
is more than sufficient to raise the sum of six hundred dollars, the 
surplus shall be paid into the State treasury ; provided, that the com- 
pensation herein provided for shall be in full of the salary of any 
assistants said sheriff' may be required to employ in the performance 
of his duties, and that no extra compensation shall be allowed to any

signing, filing, serving, transmitting and hearing the same, be gov- 
erned in all respects where applicable by the laws now of rule and 
forc Q in reference to bills of exceptions in cases of injunction, and it 
shall be the duty of r,he Supreme Court to give a speedy hearing and 
determination in such habeas corpus cases, either under existing rules 
or under special rules to be formulated by said court for that purpose, 
and if the judgment of the court below is affirmed in the Supreme 
Court, the clerk of the Supreme Court shall promptly transmit the re- 
mitter to the clerk of the court from which the writ of error was 
taken. Upon the receipt of the same the clerk shall notify the judge 
of said court, who shall have full power in term or vacation to pass 
an order, sentence or judgment necessary to carry into execution the 
judgment of the court. 

§ 6252. Reorganization of Supreme Court. — On December 16, 
1895, the General Assembly passed an Act to amend the Constitution 
of this State, which Act contained the following provisions : 

"The Supreme Court shall hereafter consist of a Chief Justice and 
five Associate Justices. The court shall have power to hear and de- 
termine cases when sitting, either in a body or in two divisions of 
three judges each, under such regulations as may be prescribed by the 
General Assembly. A majority of either division shall constitute a 
quorum for that division." (Acts of 1895, p. 15.) 



6252 PART L, TITLE VIII. — CH. IV. 74 

Supreme Court. 

This amendment was ratified by the people at a general election 
held October 7., 1896; and on December 17, 1896, the following act 
was passed by the General Assembly : 

An Act to prescribe regulations for conducting the business of the 
Supreme Court on and after the first day of January. 1897, under 
the provisions of the constitutional amendment ratified by the 
'people of this State on the seventh day of October, 1896; to em- 
power the Justices of said court to make rules for carrying said 
amendment into effect and regulating its proceedings thereunder ; 
to amend the law novj embodied in section 217 of the Code of 1882, 
which declares the manner in which a decision rendered by three 
judges shall be reversed or materially changed; to prescribe the 
mariner in which unanimous decisions rendered by a full bench of 
six justices shall be overruled, or materially modified; and. for 
oilier purposes. 

Section 1. Be it enacted by the General Assembly of Georgia, 
That on and after the first day of January, 1897, the Supreme Court 
may, in its discretion, sit either for the hearing or for the decision of 
cases "in a body," of which not less than four Justices shall constitute 
a quorum, or, for like purposes, in separate divisions of three Justices 
each; but whenever three Justices are assigned to a division, two of 
them shall constitute a quorum for that division. The phrase "court 
as a whole," as used in this act, shall be understood as meaning the 
court when not sitting or acting in divisions, and such court shall 
consist of four or more Justices. It shall be the duty of the Chief 
Justice, on the day above mentioned, or as soon thereafter as prac- 
ticable, to separate the court into two divisions, designating which 
Justices shall compose each, but the personnel of each division shall, 
under his direction and in accordance with such rules as the court 
may prescribe, be changed from time to time, so tha't the two divisions 
will not become permanent in their constituency. The division of 
which the Chief Justice is a member shall always be known and dis- 
tinguished as the "first division," and he shall be its presiding Justice. 
The other division shall always be known and distinguished as the 
"second division," and its presiding Justice shall be designated by 
the Chief Justice. Whenever the Chief Justice is absent or disquali- 
fied, any duty devolving specially upon him shall be performed by the 
Associate Justice who has been longest in commission. 

Sec. 2. Be it further enacted, That auy cases which shall have 
been argued, by brief or otherwise, before the present bench of three 
Justices, and which shall not have been decided before the first day 
of January, 1897, may be taken up, considered, and decided by the 
court as a whole without further argument; or the court may, upon 
its own motion, but not otherwise, order any of such cases reargued 
if deemed expedient. 



75 PART L, TITLE VIII. — CH. IV. § 6252 



Supreme Court. 



Sec. 3. Be it further enacted, That either division of the court 
shall have the power to issue the writ of mandamus, or to take any 
other action necessary to the perfection of records, according to the 
practice which has heretofore prevailed in this court, and either 
division may render a final judgment in any case argued before it, 
and such judgment shall have the same force and effect as if ren- 
dered by the court as a whole ; provided, nevertheless, that the court 
shall, as far as practicable, endeavor to so conduct its proceedings 
as to have the concurrence of all the Justices in all judgments ren- 
dered, except in cases where there is an express dissent upon the part 
of one or more of them. Every case argued before either division 
may be considered and decided by the court as a whole, or any one or 
more Justices of the other division may participate in the decision 
thereof without further argument ; and where for any reason a case 
is heard in a division by only two Justices, the Chief Justice shall 
direct one or more Justices of the other division to participate in 
deciding it, or that it may be decided by the court as a whole. When- 
ever any Justice in either division differs from the other two as to any 
particular case pending before it, such case shall go to the court as 
a whole for decision ; and whenever it decides a case which has been 
argued before one division only, it may upon its own motion, but not 
otherwise, order a reargument therein. In all cases decided by a full 
bench of six Justices the concurrence of a majority shall be essential 
to a judgment of reversal, and if the Justices are evenly divided, the 
judgment of the court below shall stand affirmed. In all cases de- 
cided hj the court as a whole, with less than six Justices, the concur- 
rence of at least three shall be essential to the rendition of a judg- 
ment: and if only four Justices act upon a case, and they are evenly 
divided, the case shall be reargued before a full bench, if possible, 
before the term closes; and if not, the judgment of the court below 
shall stand affirmed. Both the minutes and the printed official re- 
ports shall show how many and which justices concurred in each 
judgment rendered, and which, if any, dissented therefrom. 

Sec. 4. Be it further enacted, That said court shall have full 
power and authority to make all such rules, not in conflict with the 
constitution or with this act or with any other law of this State, as 
may be necessary for carrying said amendment into effect and regu- 
lating its proceedings thereunder. To these ends it may, by such 
rules, provide and declare when the court shall sit "in a body," and 
when in separate divisions; how its minutes shall be kept; how the 
cases upon its dockets shall be apportioned and divided between the 
two divisions ; at what times and to what extent changes shall be made 
in the personnel thereof; and generally to make all such regulations 
as to practice and procedure which experience may show to be con- 
venient and expedient for the proper transaction of its business with 
due regard to the rights of parties and counsel concerned.

Sec. 5. Be it further enacted, That the law now embodied in 
section 217 of the Code of 1882 (§ 5588 of the Code of 1895), which 
declares that "a decision concurred in by three Judges cannot be 
reversed or materially changed, except by a full bench," be, and the 
same ^ hereby, amended by striking therefrom the words just quoted, 
and inserting in their stead the following words, to wit: "A decision 
rendered by the Supreme Court prior to the first day of January, 
1 897, and concurred in by three Judges, or Justices, cannot be re- 
versed or material] v chansred, except bv the concurrence of at least five 
Justices." Unanimous decisions hereafter rendered bv a full bench 
of six eTustices shall not be overruled or materially modified except in 
the manner pointed out in said section, and then only with the con- 
currence of six Justices. 

Sec. 6. Be it further enacted, That all laws now of force relat- 
ing to the Supreme Court shall, so far as may be practicable, and with 
such modifications as necessarily result from the ratification of said 
amendment or from the passage of this act, apply to said court after 
its reorganization thereunder ; and that all laws and parts of laws in 
conflict with this act be, and the same are hereby, repealed. 

Approved December 17, 1896.

rules as the court may prescribe, be changed from time to time, so 
that the two divisions will not become permanent in their constitu- 
ency. 

a. 1896. p. §6256. Designation of divisions; presiding justices. — The di- 
vision of which the Chief Justice is a member shall always be known

case argued before it, and such judgment shall have the same force 
and effect as if rendered by the court as a whole ; provided, neverthe- 
less, that the court shall, as far as practicable, endeavor to so conduct 
its proceedings as to have the concurrence of all the justices in all 
judgments rendered, except in cases where there is an express dis- 
sent upon the part of one or more of them.

in a division by only two justices, the Chief Justice shall direct one 
or more justices of the other division to participate in deciding it, or 
that it may be decided by the court as a whole.

TITLE IX. 

RULES OF THE SUPREME COURT. 



I. ATTORNEYS. 

§ 6266. Kuee 1. Attorneys, how admitted. — Any member of the 
bar of the superior courts may be admitted to practice in this court, 



79 PART L, TITLE IX. §§ 6267-6269^ 



Rules of the Supreme Court. 



by either division thereof, upon his written application and the cer- 
tificate of at least two attorneys of this court, that he is of good private 
and professional character. The oath required to be taken in open 
court is as follows : 

"I do solemnly swear (or affirm, as the case may be) that I will 
demean myself as an attorney or counselor of this court uprightly 
and according to law; and that I will support the Constitution of the 
State of Georgia, and the Constitution of the United States. So help 
me God." 

On his admission, the applicant must pay to the clerk a fee of 
five dollars, and the clerk will issue to him a license, in proper form, 
under the seal of the court, as evidence of his authority to practice. 

Upon any satisfactory evidence in support of their application, 
attorneys of any of the courts of the United States, or of the highest 
court of any State or Territory, in good standing where they reside, 
may be admitted here, on taking the like oath and paying a like fee 
to the clerk. As matter of comity or professional courtesy, a visiting 
brother from another State, or from a Territory, may, by leave of the 
court, be heard as associate or even as leading counsel in a single 
case without being admitted as a regular practitioner. ~No such in- 
dulgence, however, will be extended to any attorney who is a resident 
of this State. 

§ 6267. [Rule 2. Agreements or consents to be in writing. — In 
the conduct of a case, no agreement or consent will be recognized or 
enforced which is not reduced to writing, signed by the parties or 
their counsel, and filed with the clerk. 

§ 6268. Rule 3. Argument. — Argument is limited to four hours 
upon each case, two hours on each side, unless by special leave an 
extension of time is granted, and none will be granted except on ap- 
plication made before the argument of the case is begun. Save when 
§ 5581 of the Civil Code applies, only two counsel on each side will 
be heard. The plaintiff in error opens and concludes, and on motions 
the movant has the like privilege. 

§ 6269. Rule 4. Personal remarks. — Personal remarks discourt- 
eous to opposing counsel, or in disparagement of the judge whose de- 
cision is under review, are strictly prohibited. In the argument of 
cases counsel are entitled to all the latitude necessary to a full and 
fair discussion of the legal and constitutional questions involved in 
the assignments of error or other matter before the court, but they 
must not indulge in denunciation of any branch of the Government, 
State or Federal, nor call in question the integrity or impugn the mo- 
tives of any official, unless he is on trial or otherwise a party to the 
record and his official conduct is properly the subject of scrutiny 
and adjudication. 

§ 6269a. Rule 5. Waste of time or work. — -As time is precious, 
and the necessary labor of the court is excessively onerous and exact- 
ing, every attorney is under obligation not to impose needless or un- 



.§6270-6275 PART L, TITLE IX. 80 

Rules of the Supreme Court. 

necessary labor upon the court, or waste its time by means of verbos- 
ity, redundancy, surplusage, or irrelevancy, whether in argument, 
bills of exceptions, motions for new trial, briefs of evidence, or other 
documents. 

II. BILLS OF EXCEPTIONS AND RECORDS. 

§ 6270. Rule 6. Bills of exceptions. — Bills of exceptions must be 
plainly written or printed, and must distinctly specify the points on 
which error is assigned. Where the error alleged is in the granting 
or denying of a new trial, one assignment of error is sufficient to 
• reach all the grounds of the motion on which the grant or refusal was 
based. Counsel, when signing bills of exceptions, or acknowledging 
service thereof, will add to their signatures their post-office addresses. 

§ 6271. Rule 7. Objections to bill of exceptions or transcript of 
record, how and when made. — Objections to the bill of exceptions or 
to the transcript of the record must be made in writing and presented 
to the court when, or before, the case is called for argument. They 
will be disposed of at once, if practicable, and if not, will be reserved 
for further consideration. Any suggestion of a diminution of the 
record will be controlled by this rule. 

§ 6272. Rule 8. Duty of clerks below. — The clerk with whom a 
bill of exceptions is duly filed, shall, after certifying it under the 
seal of the court to be the true original bill of exceptions, transmit 
the same, within the time prescribed by statute, to the clerk of this 
court, together with a certified transcript of such parts of the record 
as the judge's certificate to the bill of exceptions may require him to 
transmit. ^Neither a party nor his counsel shall be intrusted by any 
clerk with these documents for transmission, but the exclusive 
medium of carriage shall be by mail or express, charges prepaid, 
unless delivery is made by the clerk, or his deputy, in person. If 
for any cause a clerk delays transmission beyond the statutory limit, 
he shall certify to this court on the transcript the true cause of the 
delay, or be considered as in contempt. 

§ 6273. Rule 9. Illegible or confused transcript of record, how 
treated. — As against the clerks of the superior and city courts, and 
all plaintiffs in error, an illegible or confused transcript of the record 
will be treated as no transcript. 

§ 6274. Rule 10. Transcript^ how written. — Every transcript 
shall be plainly and legibly written or printed on white paper, so as 
to be read without more than ordinary strain or effort. If written 
with pen or typewriter, the same must be done on only one side of 
each sheet. 

§ 6275. Rule 11. Various parts of transcript, how arranged. — 
The various parts of the transcript shall be arranged in the order of 
time — that is, the first document filed shall be foremost in the trans- 
cript, and so on ; matters copied from the minutes, such as verdicts, 
orders, judgments, etc., being also placed in due order according to 
dates. 



81 PART L, TITLE IX. §§6276-6279 



Rules of the Supreme Court. 



§ 6276. Rule 12. Where record confused or illegible, and no 
mandamus applied for, what direction given. — If a mandamus to the 
clerk in default be not applied for, and the record should be found 
confused or illegible, the court will cause such order, direction, or 
judgment to be entered as, in its legal discretion, should be awarded. 

Clerks who have not in the first instance complied with the re- 
quirements of Rules 10 and 11, may do so voluntarily by sending up 
a second transcript in conformity thereto, in which event resort to 
mandamus shall not be necessary. 

III. BRIEFS. 

§ 6277. Rule 13. Briefs. — Briefs must be plainly written or 
printed, with ample spacing between the lines, and be confined to a 
statement of the points insisted upon, and a citation of authorities. 
If counsel desire to furnish a written summary or narrative of the 
facts, or to make a written argument, this must be done in a separate 
document, and not by expanding or overloading the brief. Besides 
furnishing to the court three copies of his brief on or before beginning 
his argument, the counsel for each party must exchange briefs with 
his opponent at least twenty-four hours before the argument opens. 
This may be done by delivering a copy to the opponent directly, or 
by placing it for him, through the mail or otherwise, with the clerk 
of this court. Any failure to comply with this rule will subject the 
delinquent counsel to be dealt with as for contempt. 

IV. costs. 

§ 6278. Rule 14. Attorneys, etc., bound. — All attorneys repre- 
senting the plaintiff in error, as well those heard orally or by briefs 
in this court as those signing the bill of exceptions, are jointly and 
severally bound for costs, save where the pauper affidavit is filed in 
the clerk's office of the court below, and a certified copy thereof is 
transmitted to this court with and as a part of the transcript of the 
record, or, if no transcript is required, with the bill of exceptions. 
This oath, to be effectual, must assert that the plaintiff in error is, 
because of his poverty, unable to pay the costs, and must not add con- 
junctively that he is unable to do anything else. 

§ 6279. Rule 15. Costs, when payable. — ~No case in which cost 
is due will be heard (except by special order of the court) until the 
cost is paid ; and if not paid when the case is called, the clerk shall so 
inform the court, whereupon the case, will be dismissed. The clerk 
shall, within ten days after the disposition of any case, issue execu- 
tion against the plaintiff in error and his counsel for any unpaid 
costs with which they are chargeable, in form as follows :

error, the same may, upon his request, be transferred and assigned 
to him by an appropriate indorsement thereon signed by the clerk. 
(As amended, February, 1900.) 

§ 6280. Rule 16. Costs, how recovered. — Upon the reversal of 
any judgment, order, or decree of a lower court, the party in whose

§ 6281. Rule 17. Disqualification of Justices. — Whenever all the 
Justices in either division are under disability, whether by reason of 
interest or from providential cause, from hearing any case coming 
before that division, it shall be transferred to the other division. 
Where two Justices in a division are under such disability, a quorum 
shall be made therein, by temporarily assigning to that division one 
of the Justices of the other. 

If in any case four or more Justices are under such disability, so 
that there will not be three qualified Justices to decide the same, a 
full division of three shall be made up by requesting the Governor 
to designate one or more judges of the superior court to preside. in 
that case. Whenever it shall become necessary to pursue this course, 
the matter should be brought to the attention of the court not later 
than the time when the circuit is reached to which belongs the case 
in which the services of the judge or judges to be designated are 



83 PART L, TITLE IX. §§6282-6286 



Rules of the Supreme Court. 



desired. Counsel are expected to exercise due diligence in comply- 
ing with this* requirement. 

Where cases are to be passed upon by the court as a whole, whether 
because of a difference of opinion between two Justices in a division, 
or because so ordered, and three or more Justices are under disability 
from presiding, a bench of at least four must be made up by the Gov- 
ernor's designation of .one or more judges of the superior court to 
preside therein. 

VI. DOCKETS A^ T U CALL OF CASES. 

§ 6282. Rule 18. Cases, how entered. — All civil cases returned 
to this court shall be numbered and entered by circuits on the bench 
docket for civil cases, on or before the first day of the term to which 
they are respectively returned, and the cases first received by the 
clerk shall be first entered., A separate bench docket for criminal 
cases shall be kept, in which the cases of each term shall be num- 
bered as they are entered, serially and not by circuits. The bench 
dockets shall not be open to the inspection of the bar during the 
sessions of the court. 

§ 6283. Rule 19. Bar docket. — The clerk shall furnish a tran- 
script of the bench civil docket for the use of the bar. 

§ 6284. Rule 20. Dockets, how called. — For the purpose of hear- 
ing arguments the dockets shall be called by the court when sitting in 
separate divisions, the Chief Justice apportioning the cases between 
the two divisions, and directing when each division shall occupy the 
bench. Either division, upon the call of any case, civil or criminal, 
may order it to be argued before the court as a whole, set a day for 
hearing the same, and cause due notice to be given to counsel con- 
cerned. 

§ 6285. Rule 21. Civil docket. — Civil cases in which speedy 
trials are provided for by statute may, on good cause shown, be set 
for hearing on motion of counsel for either party. Opposing counsel

counsel for the plaintiff in error, in each criminal case not provided 
for as above, and to the solicitor-general or city court solicitor con- 
cerned (and, in capital cases, also to the attorney-general), a written 
or. printed notice stating when said case will be heard. Jf eight or 
more days, including Sundays, will elapse between the mailing of the 
notice and the third Monday of the month in which it is mailed, that 
Monday shall be named as the day for the hearing. If less than eight 
days will so elapse, the third Monday in the next month shall be

Rules of the Supreme Court. 

named ; 'provided, that if any day to be designated in compliance with 
the foregoing directions would arrive after the adjournment of a 
term, the clerk shall name in its stead the third Monday of the next 
term. Argument will not, at the instance of counsel, be postponed in 
any criminal case except for providential cause: but the court may, 
on its own motion, order such postponement during a term as the 
exigencies of its business may require. Unless otherwise specially 
ordered, the criminal docket for each October term will stand closed 
on the last Saturday but one before the third Monday in the month

tiff in error twenty-four hours before the case is called for argument.

cannot be given, the motion will be entertained and such direction in 
reference thereto given as, in the discretion of the court, may seem

ments in any and all cases may be rendered whenever the court as \

who participated in making up the same shall be personally present 
at the rendition thereof; but each case shall be passed upon by at 
least three Justices, and each judgment shall show upon its face how 
many and which Justices concurred therein, and which, if any, dis-

held his signature till after the expiration of the time within which 
he is required to sign the same, for any of the causes justifying such 
delay), the party tendering the bill of exceptions, if he desires a 
mandamus nisi to be directed to such judge, must make his applica-

ufacture or have in his -possession, or sell or give awav for illnminat- 
ing or heating purposes in lamps or stoves within the State, any oil 
or burning fluid, wholly or partly composed of naphtha, coal oil, pe- 
troleum or products thereof., or of other substances or materials, 
emitting an inflammable vapor which will flash at a temperature; 
below 100 degrees Fahrenheit, when tested in the closed oil tester, 
known as the Xew York State or Elliott Oil Tester, according to the 
following formula, to wit: Pill the water bath with fresh well or 
hydrant water up to the lead mark on the inside. Then immerse 
the oil cup in the water and pour in oil so as to fill the cup up to 
within one-eighth of an inch of the plunge. Take a piece of blotting- 
paper and remove all air-bubbles from the surface of the oil by lightly 
touching them with the paper. Xext, carefully with a dry towel or 
cloth, wipe the upper inner parts of the oil cup so as to remove any 
drops of oil that might have spattered on the upper part of the cup. 
Then put on the glass cover of the oil cup, pass thermometer through 
the hole in the cork to such a point that the mercury bulb will just be 
covered by the surface of the oil. Xext light the lamp and introduce 
it under the water bath, so adjust the flame that the temperature will 
rise at the rate of two degrees a minute. Wait until the temperature 
reaches 99 degrees P., then light a wooden toothpick and pass the 
flame through the semi-circular opening in the glass plate at such 
angle as to clear the glass cover, and to a distance about half way 
between the oil and the cover. The motion should be steady and 
uniform, rapid and without pause. The appearance of a slight 
bluish flame shows that the flashing point has been reached. If 
the oil flashes at this point, it should be branded: "State of Georgia, 
Rejected." If it does not flash at this point, it should be branded: 
"State of Georgia, Approved." 

A.^i899,p. §6507. Naphtha allowable for what purposes. — Xaphtha and

Second. In dwellings, factories, or other places of business when

FETSAL CODE AMENDMENTS. 

[2\"ote. — The figures in the first column below are the Code Sup- 
plement numbers. Those in parenthesis are the numbers of the orig- 
inal sections, as they appear in the code of 1895.] 

§ 6743 (65). Voluntary manslaughter. — In all cases of voluntary 
manslaughter, there must be some actual assault upon the person 
killing, or an attempt by the person killed to commit a serious per- 
sonal injury on the person killing, or other equivalent circumstances 
to justify the excitement of passion, and to exclude all idea of delib- 
eration, or malice, either expressed or implied. Provocation by 
words, threats, menaces or contemptuous gestures, shall in no case be 
sufficient to free the person killing from the guilt and crime of 
murder. The killing must be the result of that sudden, violent im- 
pulse of passion supposed to be irresistible ; for if there should have 
been an interval between the assault or provocation given and the 
homicide, [of which the jury in all cases shall be the judges], a. 1899, p. 
sufficient for the voice of reason and humanity to be heard, the killing 41 ' 
shall be attributed to deliberate revenge, and be punished as murder. 

Charge by the court of \\ 64 and 65 not misleading-, where Q. shot at K. but 

killed M. Charlon v. State, 106 Ga., 400. 
Threats, accompanied by menaces, may, in some instances, be sufficient to

another on a farm, or plantation, or elsewhere, shall be imprisonment

stock law counties only.
