EXPLANATION

KEY NUMBER SYSTEM

THIS Digest covers all United States Supreme Court cases reported between October, 1882, and July, 1916. These opinions are reported in

Supreme Court Reporter, Vols. 1-36,

United States Reports, Vols. 106-241,

Lawyers' Edition, United States Reports, Vols. 27-60.

Every digest paragraph gives references to all of the above Reports, making the Digest equally valuable to the owners of any series of reports.

The Key-Number device () used in place of the section mark (§), which has been commonly in use heretofore, indicates that the Digest is compiled on the Key-Number System. This means that Topics and Key-Number Sections in this Digest are identical with those in the Decennial and American Digests, Key-Number Series. Moreover, the Index-Digests in the Advance Sheets and Bound Volumes of the Supreme Court Reporter are arranged on the same System, making the Index-Digests in volumes subsequent to Vol. 36 Supreme Court Reporter current supplements to this Digest.

Whenever you find a case in point in this Digest, and wish to find other authorities on the same point, turn to the same topic and Key-Number Section in the other Digests and Indexes.
