The duties in which I have been recently engaged, as counsel for the Department of State of the United States, have led me to give increased attention to those portions of the following pages which deal with offences against the United States distinctively, with offences against international law, and with conflicts of jurisdiction. I have felt myself obliged, also, in consequence of the great recent increase of adjudications in respect to statutory nuisances, and to violations of liquor laws, to re-write the chapters embracing the discussion of those topics. The other portions of the book have been subjected to numerous modifications, and the text of the whole has been revised. Upward of forty-six hundred new citations have been distributed through the entire work, giving in many instances new aspects to positions previously taken, and in other instances modifying those positions. I trust that in this way the work accurately and exhaustively exhibits the law of which it treats down to the present day.
