As an illustration of the increase of litigation on this subject, it may be noted that Mr. Allen, searching carefully for all decisions except patent cases (which are to be excluded from this series also) adjudicated in the courts of America, Great Britain and Ireland since the introduction of the telegraph, in about 1850, and aiming to publish every case, however unimportant, in any way bearing upon the subject, found only eighty-one cases.

The present volume covers a period of thirteen years, and contains one hundred and fifty-five complete reports, and, in notes, memoranda of over thirty additional cases decided during the same period, all in the United States; while for Volume II about the same number of cases has been selected from the adjudications of only three years.

If there is to-day any one subject of prime importance and interest in the world of business, of commerce, of travel and transportation, of the development of all industries, and of common life, it is that of the practical uses of electricity. And if there is any unhackneyed branch of legal literature it is that relating to the same subject. For these reasons this series of reports is submitted to the legal profession, in the hope that it will be useful.

Particular attention is called to the annotations, in which cases not here reported, especially earlier cases, are referred to in appropriate connection; and the index, upon which special care has been bestowed, to make it a convenient means of reference to the contents of

the book in every important detail.

In some instances parts of opinions relating to practice and other matters not within the scope of this series have been omitted, the omission being indicated by stars.

The titles of cases reported in this volume are, where cited in subsequent opinions, printed in full-face type.

W. W. M. TROY, N. Y., August, 1894.
