182 ARTICLE 1.

An. Code, sec. 2. 1904, sec. 2. 1888, sec. 2.

2. If any crime, misdemeanor or other violation of law hath been com-
mitted and no prosecution or other proceeding hath been commenced against
the offender before the adoption of this code, then such offender may be
proceeded against by indictment or otherwise, and punished in the same
manner as if this code had not been adopted.

An. Code, sec. 2A. 1912, ch. 365.

3. The repeal of any statute "including the repeal of any part of the
Code of Public General Laws or of the Code of Public Local Laws '' shall
not have the effect to release or extinguish any penalty, forfeiture or lia-
bility incurred under such statute, unless the repealing act shall so ex-
pressly provide, and such statute shall be treated as still remaining in force
for the purpose of sustaining any proper action or prosecution for the
enforcement of such penalty, forfeiture or liability.
See art. 89A.

An. Code, sec. 3. 1904, sec. 3. 1888, sec. 3.

4. No rights, property or privileges held under a charter or grant from
this State shall be in any manner impaired or affected by the adoption
of this code.

Purpose and effect of this section. An act omitted from an adopted code, is
repealed. Frederick City v. Groshon, 30 Md. 436.

An. Code, sec. 4. 1904, sec. 4. 1888, sec. 4.

5. Whenever the word administrator is used in this code it shall include
executor, and so vice versa, unless such an application of the term would
be unreasonable.

This section referred to in construing art. 93, secs. 3 and 257—see notes thereto.
Stake v. Stake, 138 Md. 54.

This section applied. Muncaster v. Muncaster, 23 Md. 288.

Cited but not construed in Linthicum v. Polk, 93 Md. 91; Crow v. Hubbard,
62 Md. 564.

An. Code, sec. 5. 1904, sec. 5. 1888, sec. 5.

6. The word decedent means either a testator or person dying intestate.

An. Code, sec. 6. 1904, sec. 6. 1888, sec. 6.

7. The masculine includes all genders, except where such construction
would be absurd or unreasonable.

Where the statute shows an intention to confine its application to males, as in the
law regulating admissions to the bar, this section will not control. In Re Maddox,
93 Md. 727.

An. Code, sec. 7. 1904, sec. 7. 1888, sec. 7.

8. The singular always includes the plural, and vice versa, except where
such construction would be unreasonable.

Where an act authorizes the appointment of an attorney-at-law as general counsel,
this section does not justify the appointment of two attorneys; the rule of con-
struction announced in this section cannot override the legislative intent. State
Tax Commission v. Harrington, 126 Md. 167.
