     4  that of the seventy-fifth meridian of longitude  west  from  Greenwich[,
     5  except  as hereinafter provided, and all courts and public officers, and
     6  legal and official proceedings, shall be regulated thereby]. The  state,

     9  that establishes daylight savings time.
    10    2.  [At  two o'clock ante meridian on the last Sunday in April of each
    11  year the standard time throughout this state shall be advanced one  hour
    12  from  that  of  the seventy-fifth meridian of longitude west from Green-
    13  wich, and the time so  advanced  shall  continue  to  be  standard  time
    14  throughout this state until the last Sunday in October of the same year,
    15  when  such  standard  time, as so advanced, shall be retarded to that of
    16  the seventy-fifth meridian west from Greenwich; and during  such  period
    17  in  each  year  all  courts  and public officers, and legal and official
    18  proceedings, shall be regulated in accordance therewith.] No  department
