Prevention of Cruelty to Children Act 1894 (57 & 58 Vict. c. 41); and the Merchant Shipping Act 1894 (57 & 58 Vict. C. 60). These, with some others of less importance, will be found in the appropriate parts of the work.

When the book was originally published in 1877, it contained 398 Articles. In the Second, Third, and Fourth Editions a considerable number of Articles were added, but the numeration was left unaltered, the subsequently inserted Articles being distinguished by letters (e.g., “ 262 A "). We think the time has

come to renumber the Articles, and have accordingly numbered them consecutively throughout the work. There are not many more than in the Fourth Edition, but they amount in all to 444.

We have taken advantage of the provision of the Penal Servitude Act 1891, to the general effect that power to pass any given sentence of penal servitude includes power to pass a sentence of imprisonment with or without hard labour, and of the consequent repeal by Statute Law Revision Acts of words thus made redundant, to shorten the Articles by omitting the words “as a maximum punishment,” and the statements of alternative punishments of imprisonment.

The footnotes have of course undergone some modification, but wherever any statement they contain is made in the first person singular the words are those of the Author.

We have added at the end of the book an alphabetical table of Indictable Offences, including a

a

statement of the offence, whether felony or misdemeanor, whether an offence at common law or created by what statute, the punishment, whether triable at Quarter Sessions, and the page at which it may be found. It is not exhaustive, as there are probably from one to two hundred indictable offences omitted, of which most are perjury, forgery, or offences which only a small class of persons can commit. It may be worth while to observe that the table contains four hundred and twelve offences, and that therefore, following the classification there adopted, the total number of indictable offences known to the law is five or six hundred. The arrangement of the table is substantially that of the similar table in Oke's Magisterial Synopsis (14th Edition), and it has been adopted by the permission of Mr. Butterworth, to whom we are grateful for his courtesy'. We have rewritten the Index.
