   Note: The word hundred, as well as thousand, million, etc.,
         often takes a plural form. We may say hundreds, or many
         hundreds, meaning individual objects or units, but with
         an ordinal numeral adjective in constructions like five
         hundreds, or eight hundreds, it is usually intended to
         consider each hundred as a separate aggregate; as, ten
         hundreds are one thousand.
         [1913 Webster]

only on the ground that it is the interest of every one that property should 
be protected, and that it is for the general good such laws should exist.
