icason of tho provision of its fourth
section, which reads as follows: "Sec
tion i. This Act shall take effect up
on the date of Its approval by tho
President of the United States.' It
appears that the language or this
Fcctlon is construed ns rendering tho
entire law nugatory, because It Is
rupposcd to Involve a delegation of
legislative power by tho Legislature
of the Territory to tho President."
After a detailed discussion of the
legal points involved, the Attorney
Cenernl concludes his opinion us follows:-
"It may be assumed, thbcfori,
that tho Legislature, in spoi'kl.-c l
the President's appioval of the net,
meant his approval of those provis
ions In the net which require his ap
proval to becomo effective, or, In oth-J

and that tho bonds will constitute a
