This edition of the Acts of the Ninth Legislature has been prepared and printed by the Harlow Publishing Company and is official under a contract with the Secretary of the Senate, by virtue of authority granted to him by Senate Concurrent Resolution 23. Its general arrangement is the same as that used in the Harlow publications of legislative acts for the four previous sessions.

Attention is called to the fact that no House resolutions appear in this book. As the publisher of Session Laws secures copy from the Secretary of State, he is not authorized to include in such a book any bills or resolutions which have not been filed with the Secretary of State, and as the House resolutions were not so filed, they have been omitted from this edition of the Session Laws.

In several instances the head notes appearing over the various sections of the measures are set in a different type from the regular style used throughout the book. This has been occasioned by the fact that the framers of these measures placed their own editorial head notes, and we made this distinction by setting them in a different style of type.

The index found in the back of this book has been constructed upon a different plan from that heretofore used by us in our editions of the Session Laws. No attempt has been made to furnish an analytical index, as experience has led to the opinion that such an index causes confusion and that a short and simple index referring to each measure by some well known catch word is sufficient for all purposes.

No changes have been made in the language, punctuation or capitalization of the enrolled bills. The printed form is an exact transcript of the laws as they appear in their enrolled form where the language or punctuation appeared incorrect or doubtful, the suspected error is indicated by (sic) placed in the line.

The proof of these Session Laws was read and verified by the enrolled bills by Mr. D. C. Collums, acting under the directions of the Secretary of the Senate. The editorial work, head notes and index are the work of Mr. Frank Eagin of the Harlow staff.
