LOCAL HEALTH STATUTE HELD VOID.

The Supreme Court of North Carolina has decided ' that a statute authorizing the board of commissioners of Gaston County to issue bonds for the construction of a tuberculosis hospital was void because the constitution of the State prohibits the enactment of any local, private, or special statute concerning various specified subjects, including laws appertaining to "health, sanitation, or the abatement of nuisances."

This case emphasizes the importance when drafting legislation of a thorough understanding of basic constitutional provisions applicable in a particular State.
