PREFACE TO THIRD EDITION.

The decisions during the nine years since the publication of the second edition of this book have made clear much that was then obscure concerning the jurisdiction of the Circuit Courts under the Judiciary Act of 1887 and of the Supreme Court and Circuit Courts of Appeals under the Evarts Act of 1891. This reason alone would bave seemed to justify a new edition; but the Bankruptcy Act of 1898 made it a necessity. The entire work has been rewritten in the light of the subsequent cases and statutes. By the transfer of many instances from the text to the notes and the omission of a number of long quotations, the writer is enabled to make room for much new matter, although he has added only about three hundred pages to the book. A new chapter on Practice in Bankruptcy has been included. He has also added, wherever they seemed appropriate, references to the leading cases in the different States upon points of equity pleading and practice, including those which are still important under Codes of Civil Procedure. He hopes that the book now contains everything except a knowledge of the local rules of court that is necessary to qualify a practitioner in the courts of equity of New Jersey, Massachusetts, Delaware, Tennessee, Kentucky, Mississippi, Alabama and the District of Columbia, as well as in all the courts of the United States; besides the treatment of a number of topics such as parties, service of process by publication, multifariousness, injunctions, receivers and others equally important under Code practice.
