law, punishable by a fine of not exceeding one hundred dollars, for any
supenntendent, officer, physician, or other employ^ of any insane
asylum to intercept, delay, or interfere with, in any manner whatsoever,
the transmission of any letter or. any other written communication
addressed by an inmate of any insane asylum to his or her counsel,
residing in the county in which the home of the patient is, or in the city
or county in which the asylum is located," is hereby amended so that

vants, or other employes of all hospitals, houses, or places which are
subject to the provisions of this act.

Section 37. So much of the said act as provides by section ten r
** If the superintendent or officers of any hospital for the insane shall
receive any person into the hospital after full compliance with the pro-
visions of this act, no responsibility shall be incurred by them for any
detention in the hospital" as applies to the superintendent or ofificersof
any hospital, house, or place made subject to the provisions of this act,,
is repealed, and in place of the provisions of that act for the protection
of such superintendent or officers, the provisions of this act for that pur-
pose are substituted.

Section 38. The managers and officers of any hospital, or licensed
house or place, shall not be liable to the penalties imposed by this act,
and shall be entitled to all the protection of this act in case of receiving-
for detention a lunatic or alleged lunatic without complying with the
requisitions of the act, if the judge trying the case shall certify that the
said officers and managers had good reason to believe that such receiv-
ing and detention were necessary for the safety of the lunatic or other
persons, and that the delay required to comply with the requirements of
this act would have been injurious to the person detained, or to other
persons, and that there is no reason to believe that they or any of them
were actuated by improper motives. And within forty-eight hours after
any person is thus received, all the requisitions of this act to authorize
a detention shall have been complied with, or the person discharged
from custody and the officers of the hospital or place where such luna-
tic has been thus received, shall forthwith notify the Board of Public
Charities of the facts connected with the reception and detention.

Section 39. Whenever any person shall be found by inquisition to
be insane, the committee of the person or of the estate, and also the
clerk of the Court into which the inquisition has been returned, shall
thereupon forthwith send to the committee on lunacy, at their principal
office, a statement in writing, signed by the committee, of the lunatic,
of the name, age, sex, and residence of the lunatic, and the residence
of the committee, and upon any change in the residence or place of
detention of the lunatic, shall forthwith notify the committee of lunacy
of such change. The committee on lunacy, or any one or more of the
members of the committee, shall have power to visit and examine the
said lunatic and authorize such visiting and examination by their secre-
tary, or any board of visitors, or one or more members thereof, and by
a physician, and the said committee are authorized to apply to any
court having jurisdiction over the committee, or to a judge of a Court
of Common Pleas of the county in which the lunatic is a resident or
detained, to make such orders for the maintenance, custody, or care of
the said lunatic, and for the care and disposition of the property of the
lunatic as the case may require. From any order, final or otherwise,
thus made, an appeal may be taken to the Snpreme Court, but such
appeal shall not be 2^ supersedeas unless so ordered by the Court making
the order, or by a judge of the Supreme Court on application and a

Section 40. This act shall, for all purposes except the appointment
and organization of the central board, go into operation thirty days
after a proclamation shall have been issued by the Governor announc-
ing the organization of the committee on lunacy.

Approved— The 8th of May, 1883.

such officers are hereby designated and authorized to act as immigration

Art. 4. Whenever it shall be necessary, in making the examina-
tion of immigrants, to temporarily remove them from thevessel upon
which they arrived to a desirable place provided for the examination,
such immigrants shall not be regarded as landed so long as they are
undergoing the examination, and are in charge of the officers whose
duty it is to make such examination ; and such removal shall not be
considered a landing during the pendency of any question relating
to such examination, or while awaiting their return as provided by

Art. 5. The Commissioner of Immigration shall enter of record

that said vessel is required to return such immigrant to the port whence
he came.

Art. 6. The regular examination of immigrants under the special

ter, agent, consignee or owner shall be deemed guilty of a misdemeanor,
and shall be punished by a fine of not less than $300 for each and

said Act of March 3, 1893.

Art. 14. In case of the failure of said master or commanding officer
of said vessel to deliver to the said inspector of immigration lists or

of customs at the port of arrival the sum of $10 for each immigrant

mation is not contained in any list, as aforesaid, or said immigrant
shall not be permitted so to enter the United States, but shall be returned
like other excluded persons.

Art. 15. The certificate required by section 8 to be filed with the
Secretary of the Treasury shall be filed upon the first days of January
and July of each year.

Art. 16. These regulations shall take immediate effect, except as
to the last paragraph of article 7 and articles 11 to 16, inclusive, and as
