PREFACE.

Following the plan of the previous volumes of the series of
AMERICAN NEGLIGENCE REPORTS, actions relating to Injuries
to Persons and Property, decided in the State and Federal
Courts during the year 1901, together with a few decisions ren-
dered in 1900, being Negligence cases arising out of the relations
of CARRIER AND PASSENGER, LANDLORD AND TENANT, MASTER
AND SERVANT, MUNICIPAL CORPORATIONS, STEAM AND STREET
RAILROAD COMPANIES, and all other branches of the LAW OF
NEGLIGENCE, are reported in this volume, 9 AM. NEG. REP.

An additional feature to the usefulness of these REPORTS is
the number of SPECIAL Notes on the various topics of NEGLI-
GENCE LAW, contributed by MR. WALTER J. EAGLE. This
feature is to be continued and extended in subsequent volumes,
and will, it is hoped, be of service to the practitioner in the mak-
ing of BRIEFS on the subjects treated. Among the SPECIAL
Notes in this volume are the following: Presumption of Negli-
gence in Live-Stock Killing cases; Notice of Claim against
Municipal Corporations; Liability for Injury to Volunteer; Doc.
trine of Comparative Negligence; Rule of Stop, Look, and Listen;
Liability of Municipal Corporations for Excavations and Open-
ings on Highways; Right to Recover Indemnity from Wrong-
doers; Liability for Turntable Accidents, etc. The complete
list of Special and other Notes in this volume will be found at the
end of the TABLE OF CASES REPORTED.

Annotations and Notes of English cases are added to many of
the cases, with numerous cross-references to various topics and
cases reported herein.

For the convenience of practitioners consulting this series of
AMERICAN NEGLIGENCE REPORTS, an INDEX-DIGEST of the
Notes contained in vols. 1-9, INCLUSIVE, has been compiled
and the same bound in this volume, such index being printed on
colored sheets and placed before the TABLE OF CASES REPORTED
herein. This INDEX TO NOTES will be of value in the search for
authorities on any topic of NEGLIGENCE LAW.

Connecticut, Delaware, District of Columbia, Florida, Georgia,
