THE COUNTY LAW.

REVISERS' NOTE.

The following draft of a county law, is designed mainly to take the place of the following statutes :

1. Chapter 12, part 1, of the Revised Statutes, entitled “Of the powers, duties and privileges of counties, and of certain county officers,” and laws since passed and relating thereto, as contained in the Revised Statutes, eighth edition, pages 1018-1083.

2. Article 1, title 1, of the laws of 1847, chapter 460, entitled “Designation of the several county prisons, and the discharge and delivery of prisoners confined therein,” as contained in the Revised Statutes, pages 2788-2791.

3. Chapter 464, laws of 1875, relating to houses of detention in the several counties, "For the safe-keeping and proper care of women and children charged with offenses, and held for trial, and for the detention of persons held as witnesses," as contained in the Revised Statutes, pages 2760 and 2761.

4. Title 17, chapter 20, part 1, of the Revised Statutes, entitled Of dogs," and other statutes since passed relating thereto, as contained in the Revised Statutes, pages 2383-2389:

5. Miscellaneous “Provisions relating collectively to towns, villages and counties, or any two of them," as contained in the Revised Statutes, pages 931-961.

6. Certain fugitive provisions in other statutes, relating to the duties of boards of supervisors.

The classification of the laws outlined in the last annual report of the commission has been adhered to, and such provisions of these statutes as more properly belong to either of the codes, have been omitted from this chapter.

Article 1, of the revision proceeds upon the theory adopted in the corporation law ($ 2), that a county is a municipal corporation, and should act, contract, sue and be sued, in its name like a natural person, and not in the name of its board of supervisors,
