PREFACE.

The General Assembly of the State of Delaware, on the 9th day of April, A. D. 1891, adopted the following resolution, viz: JOINT RESOLUTION RELATIVE TO THE PUBLICATION OF THE REVISED

CODE, AS AMENDED, WITH ADDITIONAL LAWS. Resolted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the State of Delaware in General

Assembly met :

That an edition of the laws of this State shall be published under the superintendence of the Secretary of State, to consist of the laws in the Revised Code of said State as they have since been amended or may be amended at the present session of the Legislature, together with such additional laws of a public and general nature as have been enacted since the publication of said code, and which may be enacted at the present session of the Legislature. In this edition the laws shall be arranged under proper titles, and the classification of the chapters under the different titles shall correspond, as far as practicable, with the classification of the Revised Code. All acts and clauses not in force shall be omitted, unless the publication is rendered necessary by connection with the other matter. If there be in different acts a clause substantially the same, proper to be published, it need not be published in relation to each act, but it may be connected with each by a statement. Acts relating to particular counties, if of a permanent nature, and the same have heretofore been printed, shall be published. Acts of incorporation, and other acts of a private nature, passed since the publication of the Revised Code, even though such acts have heretofore been printed, shall be committed, unless such acts conflict with, alter or amend the provisions of said Revised Code; and, in the latter case, such provisions shall be published as they are altered or amended. The said Secretary of State shall have power to change the number of any chapter or section of said laws as now published, whenever the said change is rendered necessary by the repeal or alteration of other sectons or chapters, in order to make said chapters or sections follow each other in numerical order. There shall be an alphabetical index to the edition. The said edition shall be in octavo, and two thousand copies shall be printed and bound.

Adopted at Dover, April 9, 1891.

Under the direction of the Secretary of State, and in obedience to the requirements of the provisions of said resolution, we proceeded to compile said laws. On February 1st, A. D. 1893, the said General Assembly adopted the following resolution, viz: JOINT RESOLUTION DIRECTING JAMES H. HUGHES AND ROBERT H. VAN

DYKE TO HAVE PUBLISHED THE REVISED CODE WHICH WAS PREPARED UNDER THE DIRECTION OF THE LATE SECRETARY OF STATE.

WHEREAS, by a joint resolution of the General Assembly of the State of Delaware, being Chapter 346 of Volume 19 of the Laws of Delaware, entitled “ Joint Resolution relative to the publication of the Revised Code, as amended, with additional laws," passed at Dover, April 9, 1891, the Secretary of State was authorized to have prepared and published an edition of the laws of this State, consisting of the laws of the Revised Code of said State as they have since been amended, together with such additional laws of a public and general nature as have been enacted since the publication of said code;
