MAY 10 1911
This revision of the Code of Law for the District of Columbia was submitted by the Commissioners of the District of Columbia to the House of Representatives for printing May 7, 1909, at the request of the Superintendent of the House Document Room, Mr. Chas. J. Sumner, amended, reindexed, and annotated up to that date, but for some reason unknown it was not printed.
At the request of the Superintendent of Documents of the Government Printing Office it has again been revised, amended, and amplified up to date.
This compilation includes all amendments of the code enacted since its adoption; but a number of important acts of Congress relating to the District of Columbia of general interest but not strictly within the nature of an amendment have been included and appended to various sections and added as an addendum. Some of the latter are only cited in the index by the date of their enactment and the Statutes at Large, etc.
All repealed sections have been headed with the word “repealed," and the Statutes at Large have been quoted, for convenient and quick reference, after every amendment inserted.
The pamphlets referred to are published by the Commissioners of the District of Columbia and may be obtained upon request.
The demands of the compiler's regular official duties have narrowly limited the time and energy available for this work, but it is believed that this revision is practically comprehensive and will, it is hoped, materially facilitate the efforts of those seeking to consult the information it purports to contain.
For the annotations consisting of the decisions of the different courts affecting the various sections and subjects, I am indebted to Edw. H. Thomas, Esq., corporation counsel for the District of Columbia.
If I have furnished the public with a convenient and practical business index, my object has been accomplished.
