Schedule. 1. When any action is commenced in respect to any cause of action for which a writ of attachment may issue, and any debt or sum of money is due or owing to the debtor from any other party, it shall be lawful for the party to whom súch first cause of action subsists, (hereinafter designated the primary Creditor), to attach and recover in the manner hereinafter provided, any debt or sum of money due or owing to his debtor (hereinafter designated the Primary Debtor) from

any other party (hereinafter designated the Garnishee), or sufficient thereof to satisfy the claim of the Primary Creditor, subject always to the rights of other parties to the debts or sums of money owing from such Garnishee, and it is hereby declared that all the provisions of this Chapter shall extend to all moneys or debts due to the Primary Debtor from or by any foreign Company doing business within this Province by an authorized agent, so far as it may be necessary to reach the moneys or effects of such Company in the hands or under the control of such agent.

ATTACHMENT OF DEBTS ON JUDGMENT. 2. Any Primary Creditor, who has obtained a judgment in the Supreme Court or any County Court, may apply to the Judge of the County Court, or, if he do not reside in the County, then to the Clerk of the Peace, for an order that the primary judgment debtor shall be orally examined on oath before the Judge of the County Court or Clerk of the Peace as to any and what debts or sums of money are owing to him, and the Judge or Clerk of the Peace may make such order for the examination of the primary judgment debtor naming the time and place thereof, and for the production of any books or documents, and the examination shall be conducted in the same manner as in case of an oral examination of an opposite party; such order shall be personally served on the judgment debtor, and disobedience by him shall be punishable in case of the order of the Judge, as in other cases of disobedience of a Judge's order, and in case of disobedience to the order of the Clerk of the Peace, by the Judge of the County Court by Attachment, on affidavit of the facts.

3. After a judgment has been obtained in the Supreme Court, or in any County Court, application may be made es parte to any Judge of a County Court, by or on behalf of the primary creditor, and either before or after the oral examination mentioned in the preceding Section, on affidavit that said judgment was recovered, and when; and that the whole or some part, and how much thereof remains unpaid and unsatisfied, and that the deponent has reason to believe, and does believe, that some one or more parties (naming them, or stating that he is unable to name them), is or are within the Province, and is or are indebted to or are liable to pay a sum of money to the primary debtor, for an attaching order (which order said Judge is hereby authorized to make) to the effect that all debts or sums of money owing to the primary debtor, whether due or not due, be attached to satisfy said judgment, which order may be in the form (A), in the Schedule to this Chapter. Such attaching order may be served and shall have force in any County of the Province.

4. The service of such attaching order on any garnishee shall have the effect (subject to the rights of other parties) of attaching and binding in his hands all debts and sums of money then owing from him to the primary debtor, or sufficient thereof to satisfy such judgment, and a payment by the garnishee into the Court in which the judgment has been obtained, or on the order of a Judge of the County Court to the primary creditor, of the debt or sums of money so attached to the extent unsatisfied on such judgment, shall be a discharge to that extent of the debt or sum of money ow. ing from the garnishee to the primary debtor.

5. Any payment by the garnishee after service on him of such order, to any other one than the primary creditor or into Court, to satisfy the said judgment, shall, to the extent of the primary creditor's claim, be void ; and the garnishee shall, notwithstanding such payment, be liable to pay the same to the extent of the primary creditor's claim, if of sufficient amount, or if not then to the extent of the debt or sum of money owing by the garnishee to the primary debtor.

6. The Judge of the County Court by the attaching order, or by any subsequent order, may order that the garnishee shall appear before him or before the Clerk of the Peace to shew cause why he should not pay the primary creditor the debt or sum of money owing from him to the primary debtor, or of so much thereof as may be sufficient to satisfy the judgment debt.

7. At the hearing under the said order, if the garnishee appear and do not dispute the debt or sum of money due or claimed to be due from him to the primary debtor, or if the garnishee do not appear, then upon due proof by affidavit of the service of the order, and on sufficient proof by affidavit or oral eridence of the amount owing by the garnishee to the primary debtor, and no sufficient cause appearing why
