INTRODUCTION.

In the enforcement of these statutes and regulations the Governor and Commissioner require from all their representatives efficient, fearless and conscientious service and courteous treatment to all concerned.

In compiling these rules and regulations it is impossible to cover every case that will arise.

In all cases of doubt as to the meaning of the statutes or regulations refer immediately to the head of the division under whose jurisdiction the matter comes.

Every officer or attachee of the Department of Agriculture of the State of Washington is especially charged to see that the statutes governing matters under his care are strictly complied with; and if violations of the statute pertaining to matters coming within the jurisdiction of this department are not immediately corrected to report same to head of his division or to this office.

Study carefully these statutes and rules. Efficiency and economy are the watchwords of this administration.

J. H. PERKINS, Commissioner of Agriculture.
