Modifies prohibitions over public meetings which had hitherto existed during the war. By the new law Mexicans who want to may gather peacefully in any public place to discuss how the institutions of the country might be saved during the present war with the U.S. Citizens may also direct petitions to authorities without asking permission of any public functionary.
