Omnibus veto, thirty-day bills not signed

170 Public Papers of Governor Roosevelt

State of New York
Executive Chamber
Albany, May 5, 1900

Memorandum filed with Assembly bill No. 1938, introduced by Mr. McKeown, entitled "An Act to amend chapter seven hundred and nineteen of the laws of eighteen hundred and ninety-four entitled 'An Act to incorporate the Tidal Water-Way Company and to define its rights, powers and privileges' " —Not approved

This is a bill which passed without the knowledge or consent of the Tidal Water-Way Company and sought to incorporate certain persons who were unknown to the original incorporators of the company with the avowed purpose of securing a majority of the stockholders. This is most vicious legislation.
