It is within the police power of the state to regulate sales of entire stocks in trade of merchants so as to prevent fraud on innocent creditors, and a state statute prohibiting such sales except under reasonable conditions as to previous notice is not unconstitutional under the due process and equal protection clauses of the Fourteenth Amendment, and so held as to §§ 4868 and 4869, General Laws of Connecticut, as amended by c. 72 of the Public Acts of 1903.
