PREFACE.

In the forty-fourth volume of the WEEKLY REPORTER the characteristics of the publica

tion will be found unaltered. Every endeavour has been made to render the reports succinct

and accurate, and they have been published as soon as possible after the decisions have been

pronounced. It is believed that the cases in this volume may be cited with the confidence

which the Profession has always placed in the WEEKLY REPORTER.

The Annual Digest this year contains, in the same form as last year, a summary of

all the cases published from the 24th of October, 1895, to the end of August, 1896, in the

WEEKLY REPORTER, and in the Law Reports, the Law Journal Reports, and the Law Times

Reports, besides some of those given in the Irish Law Reports. In the body of the Digest,

figures following the name of a case denote the page in the WEEKLY REPORTER at which

it will be found. Where the name of a case has no figures attached, the case is not reported

in this volume of the WEEKLY REPORTER; but the references to the case in other series of

Reports will be found in the Tabular Index to the Names of Cases.
