Entered according to the Act of Congress, in the year eighteen hundred and eighty-one,
By WEED, PARSONS AND COMPANY.
It is the intention, in this volume, not only to present the general statutes of the years 1875–80, selected and arranged in accordance with the plan originally adopted by Judge Edmonds, but also to show what changes have been worked in the statutes contained in the preceding volumes of the series, by amendments and repeals, up to and including September 1, 1880. For this purpose the “ Appendix A” has been added, which, it is hoped, will enable those possessing it to determine whether, and to what extent, changes have been made in the law contained on any given page of Edmonds' Statutes.
In order that the table may be of service to those using other compilations of the statutes, the chapters, titles and sections affected by subsequent enactments have, in every case, been noted; and, as the topical arrangement of statutes in volumes 3-5 of Edmonds' renders it difficult to find the location in those volumes of any statute cited only by year and chapter, or date of passage, “ Appendix B” has been prepared. The chronological arrangement in this table, of the acts contained in the volumes referred to, will facilitate the finding of any required statute in “Appendix A,” and will also be of assistance in obviating those disadvantages of the topical arrangement mentioned by Judge Edmonds in his preface to the third volume (pp. vi-vii).
For many valuable notes of cases, appended to the statutes in this volume, the profession is indebted to the diligence and learning of the late Mr. Isaac Grant Thompson. That his annotations do not extend throughout the volume is but one of the many losses occasioned the profession and the public by his lamented and untimely death. SALEM, 1881.
