COMPILER'S PREFACE.

The only general enactment of Penal Laws in the Hawaiian Islands is the Penal Code of 1869 which was enacted by Session Laws 1870, Chapter 1.

The Penal Laws passed from 1870 to 1882 inclusive were included in the Compiled Laws of 1884. The present volume includes all the Penal Laws now in force including the Session Laws of 1896, with references to the Hawaiian Reports, Volumes 1 to 10 inclusive.

On account of the numerous references in the Hawaiian Reports to the Penal Code of 1869 by chapter numbers, it was deemed inadvisable to change the order of chapters in favor of a more logical arrangement. The present volume therefore contains all the old Penal Code which is still in force under the same chapter numbers. Chapter 53 and Chapters 93 to 101 inclusive are new.

The general plan of the work is the same as that set forth in the preface to the Civil Laws of 1897 published simultaneously herewith.
