Helena, Mont May 10. The laws
passed by the tenth legislature have
been Issued In book form by Secretary
of State Toder, and it Is the consensus
of opinion among lawyers and others
that never wes a legislature endowed
with so many , or so lnoompetent en
rolling and engrossing clerks. The re
sult is . that, literally, Montana has
some of the most ludicrous laws ever
disgracing a statute book.
In fact, so numerous were the errors
that the secretary of state was Im
pelled to put this notice in the fly leaf:
"The within are exact copies of the j
enrolled laws as they reached this
office, and neither this office nor the
printers employed in the work ara re
sponsible for" spelling or punctuation.
Tne effect. It is anticipated, wjll not
be ' serious, however, as ths suprenie
court In passing upon laws tries to de
termine the Intent of the ; legislature,
which In most Instances is cults pal
pabla. ' ' :-.-y. -v-vi-r-v:---..-!'.' -r
, A few of the mistakes are worthy of
note. ' For instance, a law was passed
to prevent the sale of diseased meat
while ths enrolled and engrossed copies
thereof read "deceased meat" Thus,
literacy speaking, It la against' the law
for butchers to sell meats except on
the hoof, and if they obeyed its man
date they would be compelled to drive
cattle around to purchasers and dispose
of them while alive.
Ameaded Xw Dead Six Tears.
A bill was passed relative to the
measurement of hay. It provides cer
tain rules tor determining the amount
"when- it has been in the stack six
months, provided it' has been, in the
stack three months." . The Intention of
ths legislature was to make allowanoe
for shrinkage after, having stood three
and six months. - '
The legislature essayed to make rad
teal ' amendments relative to civil pro
cedure In the courts, and passed a law
amending section 1080 of the code of
civil procedure, which had been repealed
six years ago. This section had to do
with new trials on alleged erroneous in
structions. ' t .' ' '' . '
Still another law requires boarding-
houses, restaurants and hotels using
adulterated food, "not" to poet notices in
plain sight of patrons and customers,
when Its lntentlonwas just ths oppo
site. -' v ' ....... .-.
Another law dealing , with the' land
