First reprint July 14, 1898.
The following pages contain a complete and verbatim copy of the National Bankruptcy Act of 1898, with annotations em. bodying the substance of all the decisions rendered under former acts of congress on the same subject which are pertinent and likely to prove of value or importance under the provisions of the new statute.
While the endeavor has been to make the annotations as full as practicable throughout, special prominence has been given to the elucidation of those questions which will probably first come before the courts for settlement-questions, that is, of jurisdiction, of procedure, of the persons and corporations entitled to take advantage of the law, or liable to be proceeded against under it, and in regard to the acts of bankruptcy upon which a petition in involuntary cases may be founded.
It will be proper to add that the volume now offered to the profession represents the fruits of the author's study and research extending over a period of many years.
