HE material here presented is intended for the use of judges

and officers of juvenile courts, of students of legislation,

and of those who may undertake the preparation of new legislation or the revision of old legislation affecting dependent and delinquent children.

Part I is a summary of the juvenile court legislation of the United States to 1908, inclusive, which was prepared in 1909, under the direction of John Koren, expert special agent of the United States Bureau of the Census, by Thomas J. Homer, of the Suffolk (Massachusetts) Bar. With the consent of Mr. Koren, his summary has been revised so as to cover the legislation of 1909. For most of the states the revision is complete to the close of 1909. For a few states, the changes made by the legislatures of 1909 have merely been indicated by foot notes, the text itself still comprising the legislation in force in 1908. The summary is printed by permission of Mr. E. Dana Durand, Commissioner of the Census.

Part II is a topical abstract of state laws governing the trial and disposition of juvenile offenders, prepared by Miss Grace Abbott of Chicago in connection with a study of the Juvenile Court of Chicago made by the Chicago School of Civics and Philanthropy, for the Russell Sage Foundation, and covering legislation in force at the close of 1909. It is published with the consent of the officers of the school. This abstract is arranged topically under eleven topics: I. The Court Given Jurisdiction; II. Extent of Jurisdiction; III. Procedure; IV. Records and Reports; V. Place of Holding Court and Exclusion of the Public; VI. Disposition of the Child Pending Trial; VII. Final Disposition of the Child; VIII. Probation Officers; IX. Construction of Juvenile Court Laws; X. Adult Responsibility for Juvenile Delinquency; XI. Relation of Court to Institution in which Children are Placed.

Each topic is treated by states, alphabetically, enabling the reader to ascertain what is the legislation of each state with reference to each several topic. The topics are treated only in outline. For
