PUBLISHERS' FOREWORD.

For half a century reports of the cases of general interest and importance, with notes, have proved their value in thousands of America's best law offices.

Now we are able to draw on the experiences which, combined, extend over a century; to marshal ideas from three widely separated centers; to develop new features which, as individual organizations, would never have been attained; to better judge the precise value to lawyers of the various styles of case reporting and annotation; and to weave the whole into a homogeneous work of utmost helpfulness.

Thorough annotation of the new and difficult questions constantly presented by the decisions of our highest courts requires special qualifications. The editors in charge of the AMERICAN LAW REPORTS, ANNOTATED, have had that expert training and exceptional experience without which legal work of this kind cannot be trustworthy, but by which they necessarily become a specialized branch of the legal profession. The work they have done for many years is well known to the profession.

Of those editors who are named on the title page, Mr. McKinney has had thirty years' experience in this kind of work, dating back to the American and English Encyclopedia of Law, and coming down to his recent work as editor in chief of Ruling Case Law. Mr. Rich has had equally long experience as editor in chief of Lawyers Reports Annotated and other L. C. P. Co. publications, and also as coeditor of Ruling Case Law. Mr. Wailes has had twenty years' experience as writer and editor of the various publications of the Edward Thompson Company, and Mr. Greene has been editor in chief of Annotated Cases since the beginning of the series. Mr. Farnham, for more than thirty years, and Mr. Parmele, for more than twenty years, have been editors of Lawyers Reports Annotated, and for a long time active manag

ing editors.

The former is the author of Farnham on "Waters;"

the latter, of Parmele's "Wharton on Conflict of Laws."

The building up of the editorial organizations now joined in this work has required a long period of discriminating selection and thorough training. By this means there has been created a staff of more than twenty editors for AMERICAN LAW REPORTS, ANNOTATED, who are especially valuable for this work, each of whom has by long service become recognized as a permanent factor in the organization. Their average length of service is already more than fifteen years each.

Among those who have been engaged in such service for twenty-five years or more are: Joseph H. Hill, Editor of the United States Supreme Court Digests, Dakota Digests, etc., and C. B. Labatt, author of Labatt's "Master and Servant.
