PREFACE.

This volume (9 AMERICAN NEGLIGENCE CASES) contains the cases relating to the LIABILITY OF CARRIERS OF PERSONS for ACCIDENTS on TRAINS, STREET CARS, STEAMBOATS, STAGE COACHES, ETC., and at STATIONS, DEPOTS, LANDINGS, FERRY HOUSES, ETC., classified under the divisions of DERAILMENT OF TRAINS, ETC. ; RIDING ON PLATFORMS OF CARS; SICK PASSENGERS; TRESPASSERS, ETC.; DEFECTIVE STATION PLATFORMS; Icy PLATFORMS; FALLING OBJECTS; STRUCK BY Missiles and PROTRUDING OBJECTS; COLLISIONS; EXPLOSIONS; DANGEROUS PosiTION ON CARS, ETC.; RidinG ON FREE PASSES; PERSONS NOT PasSENGERS, ETC.

The cases comprised herein cover all actions from the earliest period to 1896 decided in the highest Courts of Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado (Supreme and Appellate), Connecticut, Dakota, Delaware, District of Columbia (Supreme and Appellate), Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois (Supreme and Appellate), Indiana (Supreme and Appellate), Iowa, Kansas (Supreme and Appellate), Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri (Supreme and Appellate), Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey (Supreme and Errors and Appeals), New Mexico and New York (Court of Appeals, Appellate Division, Supreme and intermediate courts); together with annotations and notes of English cases.

In the next volume the cases in the remainder of the States and the Federal Courts, covering the same topics and period, will be published, thus completing the important topic of NEGLIGENCE OF CARRIERS OF PERSONS.

It will be seen that more than five hundred cases are reported in this volume, either verbatim, or in abstract, or in the form of notes, the latter plan enabling the series to be completed within reasonable compass. The index gives a complete list of the notes of cases grouped under the various divisions of the topics in this volume, an arrangement which, it is hoped, will prove a convenience to the practitioner in the preparation of briefs upon any of the topics treated herein.

A reference to the Table of Cases Classified, which precedes the Index, will enable the reader to see, at a glance, the causes of action and the injuries sustained in the cases reported in this volume.

The Editor desires to cordially acknowledge the able services of MR. WALTER J. Eagle in the preparation of the cases and notes thereto, and the compilation of the Tables, etc., in this volume of AMERICAN NEGLIGENCE CASES.

T. F. HAMILTON. New York, November, 1899.
