tions of nearly all the titles, excepting the constitution and corporations, have been revised, and these have been given special care in the index.

The act in relation to marriage and divorce has been divided, and that portion of it relating to marriage has been placed under its own title in alphabetical order in volume 1, and the part relating to divorce and the act concerning the adoption of children have been inserted as subheads under civil practice in volume 2.

The federal constitution and acts of Congress relating to the organization of the territory and state, the land grants to the state, agricultural colleges, animal industry, bankruptcy, authentication of records, land, mining and water laws, townsites and rights of way on the public domain, and election of United States senator, which are as controlling and of as much interest to the people of the state as the enactments of our own legislature, have been included in the compilation. When pertinent to the same subjects, such as mines, public lands or water, as the state statutes, the acts of Congress have for convenience been placed adjoining and preceding the state statutes under the same title, and the federal and state sections are accompanied by notes under each giving reference to the other. The rules and regulations of various departments, boards and officers, both federal and state, which either have the force of statute or are essential in the application of statutory provisions, have been placed immediately after the statutory law to which they relate.

In kindly response to the solicitation of the commission, valuable suggestions were made by members of the bar, state and other public officials. It is desired to especially acknowledge the assistance rendered by the legislature; by Hon. Joe Farnsworth, superintendent of state printing; Hon. H. F. Bartine, chairman of the railroad commission, in the preparation and indexing of the laws affecting the railroads and the public utility commission act; Mr. Edward T. Patrick, in the review and classification of all the original territorial and state statutes and the insertion of annotations of most of the decisions under the greater part of the titles; and Mr. Walter D. Cole, in the examination and submission of the laws of other states for the use of the commission in the preparation of new acts for the legislature and insertion of most of the references to decisions relating to mines.

It is regretted that the magnitude of the undertaking has necessarily occasioned so much delay in publication. With a full consciousness of many imperfections, and with the realization that lack of time has rendered it impossible to bring the work to that high degree of excellence for which the commission has entertained a sincere purpose and earnestly labored, the compilation is finally submitted in the hope that, notwithstanding its defects, it will be a valuable aid to the people of the state and to some appreciable extent fulfil the object of the legislature.
