The Commissioner being thus vested with the powers of a Civil Court may summon witnesses and enforce their attendance under the provisions of the Code, but as a private Commissioner, without the machinery of a Court he may find practical difficulty in enforcing the order. If unable for this reason to execute the commission he should return it to this Court. This Court may then send the commission to a Civil Court, within the local limits or whose jurisdiction the witnesses to be examined reside, which may be done under Section 386 of the Code. The same course may be taken under the provisions of 22 Vic, c. 20, and 48 and 49 Vic, c 74, but having regard to the present provisions of the Code, it is unnecessary to proceed under those statutes.

2. I propose to direct the Registrar to communicate with the Commissioner to the effect above indicated.
