PREFACE.

SECTION 1. In this edition of the Revised Statutes of Louisiana, after careful consideration and consultation with many members of the bar-the following plan has been adopted :

SEC. 2. Each section of the Revised Statutes, official edition of 1870, is to be printed as it is now—that is, wherever a section has in terms been supplanted or amended, this edition will contain the section as adopted last, and a note will give the date and number of the act by which it was enacted or amended.

SEC. 3. [F a section has been directly repealed, then opposite its number, as it appears in the official edition; a brief synopsis of the section and the words, * Repealed by Act No. —, of 18--, are printed.

SEC. 4. SECTIONS are printed in ertenso but once. Duplication is avoided by giving a brief synopsis of the section and referring to number of section under which it is already printed.

SEC. 5. SECTIONS which are identical with articles of the Revised Civil Code and Code of Practice are not printed--a brief synopsis is given and reference made to the Revised Civil Code or Code of Practice, where they may be found.

SEC. 6. All acts of the Legislature of a general character, adopted since 1870, and which do not in terms amend or supplant numbered sections of the Revised Statutes. or which are not in terms designated as sections of the Revised Statutes, are printed in full under the proper and appropriate titles.

Sec. 7. ANNOTATIONS are mainly devoted to Acts of the Legislature adopted since 1870, and those subjects of the Revised Statutes which are not treated at all in the Codes, and the cases cited will be those contained in Annuals 39 to 48 inclusive, and part of the 49th Annual. Some annotation is made on other subjects and some earlier decisions are cited, but principally the course, as already described, is pursued.

SEC. 8. THROUGHOUT the body of the work, reference is made, under the sections and at the end of titles, to articles of the Codes and sections and titles of the statutes and acts of the Legislature on cognate subjects, and to the whole work is annexed a comprehensive topical index under an alphabetical arrangement, in which every section and every act of the Legislature bearing on the subject is mentioned.

SEC. 9. I have devoted much time and thought to the work, and yet I can not bope to have achieved perfection. Aside from any want of capacity of my own, the subject presented difficulties, inherent in the work itself. The arrangement of the official edition of 1870 is neither logical nor elastic, and yet it was thought necessary to retain it. While some new titles have been created (these are noted in the “ TABLE OF CONTENTS" by being printed in italics), I thought it best to print the later acts under titles that already existed, wherever these could measurably be considered as including the subject treated in the act.

SEC. 10. ANOTHER difficulty resulted from the printing several times over in the official edition of the same section under different titles and numbers. This, as already mentioned in Sec. 4, is not done here. Many of the sections are amended or repealed under one number, while the identical section under another number is not mentioned in the amending or repealing act. Under
