Such statement shall be sworn to by the holder of the license or by his agent, foreman or chief man of business, before a justice of the peace.
Any person refusing or neglecting to furnish such statement, or evading or attempting to evade any regulation made by order-in-council shall be held to have cut without authority, and the timber made shall be dealt with accordingly.
