If on the prospectus of an English company issue, which has been filed with the Registrar of Joint Stock Companies (see that subject), should appear, below the title of the company, the statement that it had been incorporated under the Companies' Consolidation Act, of 1908, it will be understood that the company has been brought out in accordance with the provisions of the laws of Great Britain, entitling the purchasers of its securities to the protection of the English law.
