EDITOR'S PREFAOE.

The first edition of this volume having been exhausted and a second required, it was deemed advisable by the Department to revise the work and make it uniform with the later volumes. In accordance with such design, the form of the book has been substantially modified in several respects ; a new index, with full notes of reference, has been prepared, together with tables of cases reported and cited, acts of Congress, and Revised Statutes, cited and construed, etc. Reversed or modified decisions have been noted, with proper reference to the later authority. Several important decisions are also included in the present edition that did not appear in the former, while none of importance have been omitted.

S. V. PROUDFIT. DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIOR,

Secretary's Office, Washington, D. O., June 30, 1887.
