PREFACE.

As the publishers of this series of reports have announced that subscriptions may begin and end with any volume, it seems proper that each volume should contain some prefatory explanation of the scheme and plan of the series. Two volumes will be published annually, containing in full the most important decisions of the year pertaining to railroads and corporations and the kindred subjects named on the title page. All cases not published in full will be embodied in the notes and made available by means of the index at the end of each volume. Each of the published cases will be annotated, and the aim of the Editor will be, first, to give prominence to the new questions which have arisen in the last few years touching railroads and corporations, among which may be mentioned, Trusts, Combinations and Pools, Interstate Commerce and the Interstate Commerce Law, State Control and Regulation of Railroads and Corporations, Strikes and Boycotts as affecting Railroads, Limitations of Liability by Common Carriers and Telegraph Companies, Discrimination by Railroads, and the various questions arising out of the modern applications of electricity. Monographic notes will be written upon the general questions pertaining to railroads and corporations, as space and opportunity permit, which will be made, as far as possible, exhaustive in treatment and citation, until the whole scope of railroad and corporation law has been covered. The series will then become a complete text book upon these subjects, with all the leading cases in full, and, unlike a text book, it will be continually up to date. Every sixth volume will contain a general index to the last six volumes published, whereby the decisions of three years, together with all the notes for the same period, will be made available under one alphabet.

At the end of each published opinion reference is made in a foot note to the Reporter System where the case may be found and also to the official report, when possible. In the citation of current decisions in the notes reference is made to both the Reporter System and to the official reports, which, we think, will be found a decided advantage over a reference to either, alone. In this connection we acknowledge our obligation to the West Publishing Company for their courtesy in permitting us to make use of the matter contained in their various reporters in the preparation of these volumes.
