Legislation Chapter II. 1. Enacted March 12, 1872, and then con-
sisted of $878–106, which were superseded by acts defining senatorial
and assembly districts. The code commissioners say: "At this session
of the legislature the state will be redistricted; when that is done the
section defining the senatorial districts will take the place of this
chapter. The commission might have procured the census and drawn a
ehapter based upon it, but the work of redistricting always assumes
more or less the shape of a partisan question, and for that reasona
work of this character is not the place for it.” See Stats. 1873–74,
p. 366; Stats. 1891, p. 71; Stats. 1901, p. 535. 2. Repealed by Stats.
