PREFACE.

A collection of cases for class-room work has passed beyond the experimental stage and needs no explanation of its purpose. But a set of cases upon this subject, in the face of a most exhaustive and complete set by Professor Wilgus of Michigan University Law School, and other excellent sets by Professor Smith of the Harvard Law School, and Professors Keener and Cummings of Columbia University Law School, needs a word of extenuation. The editor has taught the subject for a number of years, and has, at different times, used all of the above-named sets, and found it impossible to cover them properly in the time allotted to the subject. The publishers requested a revision of Keener's Cases, but it was deemed advisable to arrange a new set and bring it within the limits of one volume. Obviously, a large number of the cases reported herein appear in the volumes already mentioned, and, in part, the general arrangement of them must be along the same lines.

Opinions have been abridged with freedom, and the fact indicated by the use of asterisks (***) in the body of the printed page. Arguments of counsel, as well as names of counsel have been generally omitted, and facts, where necessary, have been condensed as indicated. Cases relating to public service companies have been reported only where the principle as applied to a private company is the same or the case best illustrates the principle. The notes are not exhaustive, and contain in general only leading or important cases on the subject.
