If the German empire is compared with the United States, we find it possessed of far more power over the internal concerns of the several component States. Among other things, it dictates the methods of procedure in civil actions for the whole country. They are regulated by two imperial statutes, one entitled the Civilprozessordnung, or Ordering of Civil Process, i.e., Code of Civil Procedure; and the other the Gerichtsverfassungsgesetz, or Law of Court Administration, i.e., the Judiciary Act. Each was originally enacted in 1877, and has since been amended in various points.
