Sapplemental Notes continuing the Annotation

EDWARD THOMPSON COMPANY
The statutes collected in this Supplement connect, without break or duplication, with those contained in the1914 Supplement to FEDERAL STATUTES, ANNOTATED. They are the general, permanent, and public acts passed by Congress between Jan. 1, 1914, and Jan. 1, 1916. As in the 1909, 1912, and 1914 Supplements these acts are classified according to the scheme of titles in the main work, and in using this Supplement the reader should examine the corresponding title to locate the late, amendatory, or repealing legislation upon the topic under consideration. The new legislation has, however, required the addition of the following new titles: Coast Guard and Mother's Day. The cross-references are unusually abundant, and pains have been taken to prepare an index which is both exhaustive and usable. The notes of cases decided under these recent acts are necessarily few. The usual tables of titles, Revised Statutes sections, and statutes chronologically arranged are included.
The greater part of the volume is devoted to the supplemental notes. These connect with the notes. in the 1914 Supplement and annotate the acts found in the original work and in the appendix, the 1909, 1912, and 1914 Supplements. The aim has been to present all the decisions construing any federal statute which have appeared since the editorial work on the earlier volumes was completed. The arrangement is by title, volume, page, and section as the statutes are found in preceding volumes, and the investigator has merely to turn to the corresponding title, volume, page, and section as shown by the captions in this Supplement to find the late cases. The omission of a title or of page and section captions implies that no new cases have been found.
