INTRODUCTORY NOTE.

Among the objects sought to be attained by the following compilation of the statutes is that of presenting, in a convenient form for reference, the general and special laws in force, relating to railroad corporations.

The general railroad incorporation law of eighteen hundred and sixty-one, continued in force by operation of section two hundred and eighty-eight of the Civil Code; the general incorporation law, and the general railroad incorporation law, of the Civil Code, which took effect January first, eighteen hundred and seventy-three, together with extracts from the four Codes, relating to the subject of railroad and transportation companies, are herewith presented.

The general and special Acts, the titles of which are to be found in Appendix A, with notes, showing when amended, supplemented or repealed, together with the Resolutions relative to railroads, to be found in Appendix B, will be of service in showing the course of legislation upon the subjects to which they relate.

For many of the notes to the State Constitution and statutes, herein contained, credit is due to the “ Codes and Statutes of California,” by Theodore H. Hittell, Esq.
