Memorandum filed with Senate bill No. 1118, introduced by Senator Graney, entitled "An Act to prevent disturbance of religious camp meetings" — Not approved

This bill is to prevent the disturbance of religious camp meetings. Its purpose is excellent; but it is so broadly drawn that it would interfere with legitimate business if it became a law; as drawn it is apparently unconstitutional; and in any event it would take effect only after the camp meeting season is practically over, so that the matter can best be left to be taken up next year with greater care.

A bill of similar character has already become a law during the present year.
