STATUTES OF OREGON
LAWS OF A GENERAL NATURE, INCLUDING
COMPILED AND ANNOTATED
HON. CHARLES B. BELLINGER
U. S. DISTRICT JUDGE, DIST. OF OREGON
WILLIAM W. COTTON
OF THE PORTLAND BAR
IN TWO VOLUMES
[PUBLISHED BY AUTHORITY OF AN ACT APPROVED FEBRUARY 25, 1901]
This compilation embraces the codes and general statutes now in force, including those of the session of 1901. The arrangement of subjects in former compilations has been continued in the codes with some modifications, while the general laws have been arranged substantially in the order adopted in Ballinger's Annotated Codes and Statutes of Washington.
Where there is room for doubt as to whether a statute has by implication been repealed by a later act, or has otherwise ceased to be effective, it has, as a matter of caution, been retained. Cross-references are appended to different sections covering the same or related subjects, and explanatory notes inserted where the subject has seemed to require it. Following each section is a reference to the legislation affecting it, and to the section numbers as contained in Deady's Code and Hill's compilation. Such references are not, as a rule, extended to the compilation of Deady and Lane, the section numbers in that compilation, except as to a part of the Criminal Code, being identical with those in the Deady Code.
Mr. James G. Wilson and Miss M. A. Fleming have rendered constant and valuable assistance in the compilation and annotation of this work, and Mr. George A. Burns in its typographical preparation.
No effort has been spared to make this compilation meet the requirements of such a work, and the compilers hope that it will answer the reasonable expectations of the Bench and Bar.
