What is MANNER?

his is a word of large signification, but cannot exceed tbe subject to which it belongs. The incident cannot be extended beyond its principal. Wells v. Bain, 75 Pa. 39, 54, 15 Am. Rep. 503. Manner does not necessarily include time. Thus, a statutory requirement that a mining tax shall be “enforced in the same manner” as certain annual taxes need not imply an annual collection. State v. Eureka Consol. Min. Co., 8 Nev. 15, 29. Also a thing stolen, in the hand of the thief; a corruption of “mainour,” (q. v.)
