The Act declared the exact compensations for loss and damage of property, laid out the rights of both parties to knowledge and confession, and laid out the following procedures for evidence:
1. It has to be apporved by the Police prior to the Trial.
2. It must be authentic and not copied.
3. The Judge has to double examine it.
4. The Jury can look over and determine pieces of evidence.
The Act effectively reformed the civil cases system and made the procedures fair. The government and authorities were prohibited from confiscating private property not in the crime or related to it and decorating it as incriminating. It was part of the Reforms of 1905-1907.
