1. Subject to the provisions of any Statute or of these rules, the costs of and
incidental to all proceedings, shall be in the discretion of the Court. Unless the Court
otherwise orders an intervener shall not be entitled to costs.

conveniently proceed by reason of the advocate on record of any party having
neglected to attend personally or by some proper person on his behalf, or
having omitted to deliver any paper necessary for the use of the Court which are in
his possession and which according to the practice ought to have been delivered,
the advocate on record shall personally pay to all or any of the parties such costs
as the Court may think fit to award.

may direct the payment of a sum in gross in lieu of taxed costs and may further
direct by and to whom the said sum shall be paid.
