CERTIFICATE OF. APPROVAL.

I have examined the subject of Constitution and Laws as published in volumes six and seven of Myer's Federal Decisions and certify that the Star[*] cases,f of which only a digest is published, were properly rejected as unnecessary to be printed in full because the questions therein decided are fully discussed in leading cases which are printed at length, therefore more than a digest would add nothing of value to the subject.

WILLIAM G. HAMMOND.*

Dean of the St. Louis Law School and lecturer in the Boston University Law School; formerly Professor of Law in the Iowa State University and member of the Commission of 1873 to revise the laws of Iowa; author of a Digest of Iowa Reports and editor of Lieber's Hermeneutics.

† Cases originally assigned to this topic to be therein printed at length, if so printed anywhere in the series, but afterwards reduced to a digest as not of sufficient value to warrant anything more because they come under the following rule announced as part of our plan, viz:

“All important cases will be published in full, but cases which merely affirm or follow some leading case, or those which are based upon a particular state of facts and do not announce any important principle of law, and in some instances those which turn upon a well settled principie of law, will not be published in full, but only digested, the extract to be sufficiently full for all practical purposes. Where a series of cases, all covering the same ground and addressed to the same subject matter, are reviewed and affirmed in a later case, usually the last case will be given in full, and the others will be digested. Whenever there is a well grounded doubt whether a digest of a case will be sufficient, th case will be given in full. It is not intended, however, to publish in full the opinions of the Court of Claims, nor those found in the State reports and law periodicals, except such as are of more than ordinary value."
