PREFACE TO THIRD EDITION.

In the preparation of this edition it has been intended to keep within the sphere contemplated by the author, and the original text has been preserved in its entirety. We have found that the principles therein set forth have been followed by the highest courts in the land, being often cited verbatim with approval. In only a few instances has it been deemed advisable to make additions to the text, while copious notes have been added presenting in as compact form as possible the results of the judicial investigations of the subjects discussed, and new matters properly within the scope of the text have been elaborately treated. The index has also been amplified and extends to the new matters contained in the notes. About four thousand citations have been added, bringing the work down to date. In citing cases it has been our aim to mention in every instance all the reports in common use in which the case appears, including the various series of reports and the Reporter system, but some omissions have occurred which it has been one of the objects of the table of cases to supply. We have constantly endeavored not to trespass upon the subjects treated by the author in the late editions of his works upon Criminal Law and Criminal Procedure, but frequent references are made to these works, which apply to the latest editions. All additions and citations are distinguished by being inclosed in brackets.

St. Louis, 1901
