Title: The Law of Judgments and the jurisdiction of the sheriff in selling land, considered with reference to the complaints of the County Down people on the subject: (1) That the Law of Judgments operates unequally and harshly on leasehold interests and upon yearly tenancies, (2) That the jurisdiction of the sheriff in selling leasehold and yearly tenancies under the writ of “fieri facias” is burdensome and oppressive, (3) That the creditor who involves the tenant in the heaviest law costs can get an unjust priority over other creditors, (4) That the judgment creditor can in many cases confiscate the rights of the widowed mother and the younger brothers and sisters of the tenant, (5) That sales by “fieri facias” is a new procedure that has sprung out of the Land Act
