Annual Report of the Commissioner of Weights and Measures

Excerpt from Annual Report of the Commissioner of Weights and Measures: For the Year Ending November 30, 1908 The number of prosecutions made by this department Shows a decrease when compared with last year's work. This may be attributed to the improvement in trade conditions relating to weights and measures, due to vigilant inspection by the State and local authorities, the result being a perceptible decrease in short weight Offences. The reports of the local depart ments, however, Show an increase in the number of proseou tions over that of the preceding year. The standard weights and measures in the possession of the county treasurers are now being returned to this office. When these standards have all been received, they will be put in order, readjusted and sold, the proceeds of such sale being paid into the treasury of the Commonwealth, as required by statute. A portion of these remodelled sets will be supplied to seven towns of the Commonwealth whose standards have been destroyed by fire or otherwise damaged. This arrange ment will result in a considerable saving to the various towns. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
