CODE OF ALABAMA,
ADOPTED BY ACT OF THE LEGISLATURE OF ALABAMA;
JULY 27, 1907,
"AN ACT TO ADOPT A CODE OF LAWS FOR THE STATE OF ALABAMA,”
WITH SUCH STATUTES PASSED AT THE SESSION OF 1907 AS ARE REQUIRED
IN THREE VOLUMES.
VOL. III. -- CRIMINAL.
JAMES J. MAYFIELD,
Entered according to Act of Congress, in the year 1907, by
In the office of the Librarian of Congress, at Washington, D. C.
PREFATORY MATTER. The constitutions of 1901 and 1875 are paralleled, annotated, and indexed as prefatory matter in this volume.
EXTRAORDINARY SESSION OF LEGISLATURE. An extraordinary session of the legislature of Alabama was called and held while this volume was in process of publication. Consequently, the laws passed at this extraordinary session could not be codified or published in this Code. Some of the laws codified and embraced in this Code are expressly amended and repealed and substituted by subsequent statutes passed at the extraordinary session, and others, probably, by implication are modified or repealed. Where it was practicable so to do, references by notes or annotations have been made to such subsequent amending or repealing statutes, and, in some cases, the subsequent statutes have been printed in notes or as parts of the annotations.
MARGINAL REFERENCES. The marginal references to statutes passed at the session of the legislature of 1907 prior to the 9th day of July of that year, are made to the pamphlet acts as published before the legislature reconvened after the recess. These same acts were republished, together with those passed after the recess, and the paging in the first pamphlet acts was not preserved in the latter publication of all of the acts passed at the regular session of 1907. Consequently, the reference to the page of the act, if passed at the regular session of 1907 prior to July 9th, will not correspond to the subsequent paging of the acts published as a whole. This could not be avoided by the commissioner, for the reason that this publication of the entire acts was not made until after
