EDITORIAL NOTE TO THE 14th EDITION.

As the amendments to the Code of Criminal Procedure are very numerous this year; owing to the passage of chapter 880 of the Laws of 1895, which was drawn to make the Code conform to the amended Constitution of 1894, it may be well to add a word in relation to the provisions of the last named law of 1895, so that the changes made in the criminal law of procedure may be apparent to those who use this Code. The intention of the framers of chapter 880 of the Laws of 1895, was merely to make such changes in the Code, as were rendered necessary by the changed nomenclature of the courts in theConstitution of 1894, and in the act last mentioned, section two expressly provides, “ that if a section of the Code of Criminal Procedure which is amended by this act, (chapter 880 of 1895,) is also amended by any law passed at the session of the Legislature at which this act is passed, such other law shall be deemed to supersede the provisions of this act amending the same sections, whether such other law takes effect before or after this act, and the amendment made by this act shall be of no force or effect.The Legislature saw fit only to pass two such laws, and they amended sections thirty-nine and five hundred and twenty-eight of this Code. It

may be well also to add, that chapter 96 of 1854, chapter 57 of 1874, chapter 219 of 1883, chapter 242 of 1888 and chapter 243 of 1888, were repealed by chapter 946 of 1895, to take effect January 1, 1896, although such repeals apply more particularly to the Code of Civil Procedure. (Ed.)
