4.  The rule of the common law, that statutes in derogation thereof
are to be strictly construed, has no application to this Code. The
Code establishes the law of this State respecting the subjects to
which it relates, and its provisions and all proceedings under it are
to be liberally construed, with a view to effect its objects and to
promote justice.
