ORNER'S Revised Statutes, editions of 1896 'and 1897, met with unprece
dented success, showing the public demand for and appreciation of the
compact, complete, correct annotated edition of the Statutes. Owing to the recent death of its publisher, Mr. E. B. Myers of Chicago, and litigation growing out of the affairs of his estate involving the ownership of the copyright, the publication was for a time out of print and the late increasing demand for the work has not been met. We therefore determined, the obstacles in the way having been removed, to begin the new century with a new revision containing the complete statutory laws of the state of a general character in force down to and including the Legislative Session of 1901, with important and valuable laborsaving additions.
As a result we offer the public the present volumes containing upwards of 3,000 pages. By the use of specially manufactured paper and most compact miont size although giving space for the

The section numbers of the revision of 1881 are retained where the law is still in force. The importance of so doing cannot be overestimated. More than one hundred volumes of Supreme and Appellate Court reports make direct reference, in almost every case reported, to the Revised Statutes of 1881 by the section numbers there used. These numbers, as a means of designating a given section of the statute, are so interwoven into judicial reports and proceedings, into digests and works on statutory construction and law books of every kind, and into the title and body of the very laws themselves, that a departure from them by the adoption of new numbers for the same sections, in a new compilation of the statutes, would be a grave offense against public convenience. We therefore retain the original section numbers where the 1881 statute is still in force or has been amended, and add the new laws upon like subjects as supplementary thereto, with alphabetical prefixes “a, b, c,” etc., to the section numbers.
In view of the premises we trust that this revision will become as popular as that of 1881 and take the place of that revision in every township and hamlet, in every business room and office in the state.
