NOTES. Sect. 13. Section 11 has been added to the provisions which are required to be posted by innholders because of the reference to it in St. 1897,

c. 305.

Sect. 22. A draft of Pub. Sts. c. 102, §§ 21, 22, as amended by St. 1893, c. 292, is submitted. The existing law, by the repeal of Pub. Sts. c. 102, § 23, leaves § 21 without any effective penalty. The provisions of this section that persons who violate its provisions shall not be approved or licensed is inoperative as to such of those persons as are not required to be licensed, and its effect as to such persons as are required to be licensed, no forfeiture of an existing license being provided, is to prohibit a renewal of their license.

Sect. 69a. It is recommended that this section, which originated in an act for the extinguishment of fires, etc., and which is limited to livery stables in maritime places, be omitted, as its provisions are superseded except as to livery stables keeping less than five horses in cities of less than twenty-five thousand population.

Sect. 78. The word "steam" before" engine" has been omitted in this section in order to apply to the engines named in the preceding section and to preserve the provisions of § 2 of St. 1862, c. 74.

Sect. 82. The clause in St. 1899, 368, § 7, requiring fees to pass through the hands of the chief of the district police, has been omitted and it is recommended that the fees come within the general rule (c. 108, § 5) and be paid over directly to the treasurer and receiver general.

Sect. 122. Some amendment seems necessary to correct present defects of the law respecting the disposition of gunpowder seized under section one hundred and twenty-one. Provisions are there made for the seizure upon search warrants of gunpowder, oils, etc., but no provision is made for the forfeiture or disposition thereof. Pub. Sts. 102, § 79 provides for the destruction of all explosive compounds, other than gunpowder, without regard to the quantity or circumstances under which they are kept or seized. A uniform provision is submitted whereby any of the articles for the seizure of which a search warrant is authorized may be forfeited, and sold or destroyed in the discretion of the court and the proceeds, if any, paid over as provided respecting forfeited articles in Pub. Sts. c. 212, § 9.

Sect. 152. The provision as to the absence or illness of the mayor has been omitted because his duties, prescribed by P. S. 102, § 98, are by St. 1889, c. 454, § 1 transferred to an officer of police, and in case of the absence or illness of the officer a new oflicer may be designated by the "authority appointing the police" as provided in that section.
