1778.                                 LAWS of MARYLAND.

    XV.  And, whereas the fines which can by law be imposed upon jurors and
witnesses for not attending court, when legally summoned thereto, are found inadequate
to the purpose; Be it enacted, That in all cases when jurors or witnesses
shall be hereafter legally summoned to appear at the general court, and
shall without sufficient exclude neglect to appear and attend according to such summons,
the judges of the general court may fine such delinquent according to their
discretion, not exceeding fifty pounds; and whenever any jurors or witnesses shall
be legally summoned to attend the respective county courts, and shall, without
sufficient excuse, neglect to appear and attend as required by the summons, such
delinquent may be sued by the justices of the respective county courts any sum
not exceeding thirty pounds common money.


 
 

Aug. & Nov.
courts on E.
shore abolished,
&c.

    XVI.  And, whereas by the bill of rights and form of government, the general
assembly of this state is directed to be holden in the month of November yearly,
and by law the several and respective county courts are directed to be holden in
the same month, which is found by experience to be very inconvenient; Be it
therefore enacted
, That the respective county courts on the eastern shore, which,
by act of assembly, are directed to be holden in the months of August and November
yearly, be abolished, and that the same be hereafter held in the months of
June and October; that is to say, The several and respective county courts on
the eastern shore, which were held in the months of August and November, shall
hereafter be held in the same weeks in the months of June and October that the
said county courts by law were directed to be held in the months of August and
November, and that all acts, proceedings, and other matters whatever, which
ought or might have been done or executed at the said August and November
courts by the justices and officers of the said respective courts, shall and may be
done and executed at the several and respective county courts to be held in the
months of June and October, as aforesaid, and such acts, proceedings and other
matters, so to be had, done and executed, shall be as good and effectual, to all
intents and purposes, as if had, done or executed, at the said August and November
court before mentioned; and the commissioners of the tax in the several
counties shall meet on the same days in August next, to hear appeals, as they
would or ought to have done had this law not been made, any law, usage or custom,
to the contrary notwithstanding.
Continuance.     XVII.  This act to continue for and during the space of seven years, and to the
end of the next session of assembly which shall happen after the expiration of the
said seven years.

    Continued for seven years, &c. by the act of 1785, ch. 77.

                                            CHAP. XXII.
A Supplementary ACT to an act, entitled, An act for the amendment
                                                of the law.
Preamble.     WHEREAS doubts have been conceived under the act, entitled, An act

any person or persons under the age of twenty-one years, seized or possessed of
any lands, tenements or hereditaments, in trust, or by way of mortgage, or seized
