BARNES FEDERAL CODE
YEARS 1919, 1920 AND 1921
FULL TABLES OF STATUTES AND
APR 6 1922
The present supple nt to Barnes Federal Code is cumulated with the first one, appearing early in 1921. It covers the three years, 1919, 1920 and 1921, and embraces all Federal statutes of general nature enacted subsequent to the laws contained in the original work. The plan and classification of that work are observed, and the serial sections thereof preserved wherever the new legislation takes the place of the old.
The index has been carefully and fully revised in connection with the insertion of the new material therein. Special attention is again called to the importance and practical utility of the various tables of statutes.
The new supplement adds to the material appearing in the old one, among many other measures of unusual interest and value, such important legislation, for illustration, as amendments to the Judicial and Criminal Codes, the Transportation Act, the National Prohibition Act, the Merchant Marine Act, the Minerals Leasing Act, the Water Power Act, and the War Risk Insurance Act; the Veterans' Bureau Act; the Highway Act; the Maternity and Infancy Act; the Packers and Stockyards Act; the new Postal Service Act; the Emergency Tariff Act; and the Budget and Accounting Act. Of still greater and more vital significance is the new General Revenue Act of 1921, covering fully the whole field of internal revenue. Its amendments of the prior law of the same nature are of vital and far-reaching importance. The Revenue Act of 1918 is entirely superseded.
