FIVE SURVIVING MEMBERS CF FIFTY YEARS AGO Composition of the First State Congress. The exciting contest for the admission of the Territory of Michigan into the Union did not end with the passage of the act of admission. The joy of the people of the new-horn State at the metamorphosis into Statehood was dampened by the fact that Congress gave to Ohio the ten-mile strip over which tho bloodless Toledo wnr had been fought. In return Congress had given Jlichigan the rich empire of tho Upper Peninsula. But the people of the State couldn't see it that way and they were terribly jaundiced concerning the event. In the last days of the session of the first Legislature Edwin H. Lothrop, of Schoolcraft, introduced a resolution expressive of the displeasure of Michigan people at this exchange. This resolution spoke of t lie twin peninsula in these rather uncomplimentary terms: "A district of country situated on the south shore of Lake Superior a country so remote that it can never have any interests in common with us." The FitKE Piiess at about this time disgustedly spoke of the copper and iron El Dorado as a "region of perpetual snows tho Ultima Thulo of our national domain." As a survivor of the Toledo war put it yesterday: "They were willing to shed their gore, fortunes and sacred honors for the Maumee fever and ague, but they didn't propose to havo the Upper Peninsula for love or money." junb l-". 18:i(i, Congress passed the act admitting Michigan to the Union as a State, providing Michigan would accept the boundary uorth of the disputed Toledo territory. June "tl, lS-'ld, nnothcr act was passed denying Michigan the boundary she claimed. Sepicmber 2 and October IS'10, large meetings were held in this city opposing the yielding of the territory to Ohio, 'the lirst Legislature called a convention of delegates to settle the question. September 20, :i&:lli, this convention met at Ann Arbor and decided that the State would not accept the proposed boundary. A second convention was held December 14 at Ann Arbor, and this convention absorbed tiie Upper Peuinstila medicine and January "0, lytlT, the Slate was admitted, duly curtailed at Ihe south antl expanded at Iho north. A gieat , celebration was held February 9, Ibli", in honor nf admission. Twenty-six guns were fired, the Hrady Guards paraded and the cUy was brilliantly illuminated. TIIK SKCOND LKO'tSLATUIlE Of the Slate of Michigan was in session during: ibis interesting period, so. that it, like the lirst Legislature, also sat before Michigan had an existence as a Slate. It was organized much like the lirst and hud two sessions. It convened January " and adjourned Match ilO. An extra session wus held fioni June IU lo Juno i". fcd-waru Munday, Lientenaul-Governor, presided over the Senate. John T. Adam, of Clinton. Lenawee Co.. Sec retary of the lirst Slate Senate, continued lo hold lhat position in the second and third Leg-isiatuios. In the fourth Legislature-Jutiuni-y 7 to April 20, lSilll ho took a seat in Ihe Lower House. In the lifth Legislature January d to April 1, 1H-I0 he advanced to a seat in the Senate. Til is lie continued to hold in tiie sixth Legislature January 4 to April 111, 1841. He was Slate Treasurer in 1B41-2 and State Auditor in lSia-li and 1848-51. He was again a Representative in lS-IH. Moru than twenty years utter, in 1871-2, lie once more sat in the' Legislature. He is still living and will be a prominent liguro at the reunion. Mr. Adam was a schoolmate of Premier Gladstone, of England. When the roll of the Legislature of lSllo Michigan's lirst is called in joint session ut the reunion by the Secretary of the Senaie, tho following may respond : Dodge, Felch, Gidley, Green and Y'oorheis. There may ho others still living, but these live are all concerning whom information lins reached Tiik Kuee I'hess. Hon. Hiram Dodge was a niemherof the first Legislature Ironi Lenawee County, lie still lives, venerable alike in years and honors, at Wutseka, HI. He is St years old and worth i'OU.OllO. It is possible that he will be present at tiie reunion. ... , , Hon. Alpheus S. Felch Is now 80 years old. Ho took his scat in the lirst Legislature as a Representative, and continued to sit in tho second, lie was an active and sound-headed member. He was successively Bank Commissioner, Auditor General, Supreme Justice, Governor and Senator of the United Slaies, reaching the last office in 1847. at the age of 41. Sinco the expiration of liis term he has practiced his profession, and been a Professor of Law at Ann Arbor. No man in Michigan is more univorsully esteemed, and the devotion of the law students to tiie old Governor almost amounts t o worship. i-i,i Tnu nsiMiil K. ( iiiilev was one of the lone some Whigs in the lirst Legislature. He did not servo out his term, but resigned. Houover, ho returned to the House ot jteprcseniauves in 1811S, and ngaiii in 1850. Ho was Slalo Senator in lsny-40-1 and 2. and again in 1SU3-4, having in all a long and honorable legislative career. He now lives near Grand Haven, "feoble in health, but grand in intellect and ability." Ho still takes a deep interest in all political aflairs, and is a thorough Democrat and admirer ot President Cleveland. Hon. Cogswell K. Green, then of Niles, represented Uerrieu County in the firal Legislature of the State of Michigan. Ho did not again sit in the bodv. He now . resides in New Hampshire but will not bo present at I ho reunion, lie wroto It. W.

Chicago: Callaghan ic Co., l.SSo. i .T. .nn.. e!n. .!!..., Pnnlf.v rnhlishod the lirst edition of this work the law of taxation has unfolded from a theoretical to a .comparatively exact science. Something like K,000 tax cases, it is reckoned, have been decided in this country in that tiine. and, as the author states in his preface, points upon which he was then able to give no other authority than his own opinion are now abundantly settled by judicial decisions. As the conclusions thus established do not differ materially from those slated by the writer in his lirst edition, it is anot unreasonable inference that the original treatise has done its part in the t'uidance of the courts, and lias in ef-, feet itself built up tho law. No greater tribute could be paid to the soundness of t he author's reasoning than that it should have been o unl-formlv accepted npon their practical application to actual casc-M proves its correctness by a lest that a priori doKmatizing will rarely stand. When the first edition appeared, the reviewers, while coiupliineiitine it highly as an exposition of principles, recognized the fact that it could not safely have been made, like many law boots, a diucsl of decisions, because the law of taxation is to' largely statutory that w hat would be true for one State miiriit not be toranother, 1 Hat c.u-iicu.tv, of course, will continue to attach to the subject and embarrass text-writers until in process of time its rmcip!w have become e.!ll in the bodv of the law as well as locally. I.ut the plan of 'Judge Cooky's treatise enables him to avoid it. And. indeed, the philosophical ouilitv in his books place? them lar above ,. be level of other writers who collect and classiiy cases diligently, but cannot give to their compilations the weight of an authoritative evolution of principles. . . The new edition is really a new treatise, for while it preserves with conspicuous fidelity the system of the oltl one, even to the exact number of chapters, and us far as possible to the preservation of the sub-titles therein, it has been substantially rewritten and incorporates about -io pages oi "additional matter, increasing the bulk of the book nearly one-half. The table ot cited cases 1111s sixtv-nine pages to fortv m the old edition. The loot notes are as full as before, and are an overflowing magazine of case-law. The paging has not been preserved, and could not well be, I.ut this is not important, tor while the -imilarilv of arrangement enables ono to compaie the two books easily, the latter one must whom supersede the other. That pen (ion winch relates to l he. important subject ot local assessments has been carefully recoiistructi ti. The Mi. hi-iui bar who have been laminar with Judge Ooley's written opinions lor the twcnlv years of his judicial life upon Ihcfcn-nren;e Bench need not be told that his style .is as clear as his reasi nilig is close, and this is so "ivut a recommendation to a legal treatise, even, linn t lie ivputaiion of a text w riter, no mutter how leal lied, suffers if his learning is obscure!'.- presented. A distinguished Detroit lawyer tells of a conversation had with bncrc-lary Lamar in which the Secretary llmsiraied this "I picked up one day," said lie, 'a book which 1 supposed to be Story on the Constitution Now 1 never liked Story because Ins style was so involved and lumbered up. but as I read I was presently struck with the aulhors clearness and elegance. I was surprised and charmed and 1 read on. page after page pniyim: Heaven to forgive me the injustice I had always doneStorv. At last I happened to look at lie title, and I raw that tho book I had been reading was one of Judge Cooley's." Jtr Theodore Rooseveif is an enthusiastic and successful sportsman as well as a politician who aims at reform. His magnificent book, Hunting Trips ol'i'.Kancliman," isn splendid specimen of the bookmaker's art, and is illustrated by such artists as Frost, the Cliffords, Beard, and Sandham. ll is adventures are not as exciting as those of tho tainous Cuinniings in Soulll Africa, but there is great carefulness of observation and minute directions for shooting the game in Southern Dakota and Jloutaiia, including geese, ducks, grouse, black-tail deer, liocky Mountain sheep, elk, buffalo and i lie grizzly bear. Butaslhere are no longer any bear or buffalo to speak of his remarks about them are of historical rather than of practical value. If his hunting is as luxurious as his book-making it must be almost literally "royal sport." Ss'ew York: G. P. Putnam' hons. Detroit: Juo. Alaelarlane.l Mr. J. R Dunn, Jr., in a large illustrated octavo volume called "Massacres of the Mountains" maintains that the Indians so far from dvingoul, are nearly holding their own, if not increasing; the contrary impression having been got from the exaggeration of their numbers by the early settlers of this country. The probabilities are, lie says, that there will be more or 'tlioracoa century hence tlinn there are now. In this book he has endeavored to give a fair and impartial account of the causes, occurrences and results of the leading Indian troubles of modern years. Ho ascribes these mainly to two or three causes ; The breaking of treaties ; tho stealing of Indian agents, and the consequent starvation and suifering of the Indians, lie lakes an unbiased view of the Indian character; maintaining that there are still among them the types of Cooper's ideal Indians, und that Ihero are savages as well. He declares that as long as the Indians are robbed and cheated thev can never be civilized. They will always he hostile, and therelore always barbarous. There are some of them whose tendency is 10 civilization; some whose tendency is to barbarism. (New York: Hnrper Bros. Detroit: i. A. Hoys.) 1 lad lirot II arte never writ ten his stories of California lile, Mr. Howard Seely might not have written "A Kiini-hman's Stories." It would be unjust to sav that they aie an imitation of Hai tc's; yet llarte'd deliberate humor of description; his slow untwining of a sceue or a situation in phrases that are out of all proportion to the surroundings and in utter con'.rast. to the crisp, strong dialect of the rough pei-sonages of the slorv'are also favorito with .Mr. Seely. There is lile'and freshness in lliem, notwithstanding, and life on the Texas plains among cow-boys. Judge Lynch, ranchmen and tho unique young women which that, civilization produces at least in these stories lias a force and variety tiiat are extremely welcome. It is a new revealing of another phase of American life, proclaiming that the novelists havo by no means exhausted it. (New York: Dodd, Head & Co. Detroit: John Jlaclarlane.) "Throe Martyrs of the Nineteenth Century," by the author oi t he "Schoenherg-Cotta Family," are sketches of the lives ot Livingstone, the African explorer: of Uen. (Chinese) Gordon, killed in the African desert, and John Coleridge Patterson, missionary bishop, killed in the South Sea Islands. The design of t lie book is to show that the martvr spirit, the spirit of enterprise and self-sncrilico, still exists in the English nation. (New York : Dodd, Mead & Co. Detroit : John Macl'arlane.) "A Desperate Chance," by J. D. Jerrold Kelly. U. S. Navy, begins with a suicide in Paris, and after several complications of blighted love, jealousy and other lierce and inconvenient emotions eiids in a shipw reck, which is very well done. There is some French detective work in it, and some VY. Clark Kussell's sea-s:"ipe and adventure, but its workmanship is good. (New York: Charles Scribner's Sons. Detroit: John Macfarltine.) Under the guise of Action and the title of "Buz" M. Noel has undertaken to enlist the attention in the works and ways of bees, it is akin lo "The Adventures of a Pin." "The Biography of a Fly" but is very ingeniously and "dramaticnlly told.

It is done with ail the neatness and finish of a French literary workman. Children will be delighted with it. (New York: Henry Holt & Co. Detroit: John Macfurlane.) "By Fire and Sword" is a story of the persecution of the Hugueuois under Louis XV. and his famous "ciragouatlcs." The tale is as. Ties of striking dramatic incidents; of spies, searches, abduction and imprisonments, rather than a well-plotted, well-constructed story. It gives an impression rather than a picture of those troublous times, and historically is of a decidedly Protestant bias. (New York: Cassell & Co. Detroit: John Macl'arlane.) The aim of "First Steps in Latin," a complete course of Latin for one year, based on material drawn from Ctesar's Commentaries, is "to teach the pupil to speak, write and read I-atin as he is thought to speak, write and read a modem language." "The changes in the forms, uses and rotations of words are explained and illustrated from English." "If Latin." wisely says the preface, "is to maintain jls present high place in the course of study it must oiler something better than mere mental training or grammatical drill.'' By li. I''.

This is tho season of the year and this the especial day upon which the householder who pays a monthly premium for a domicile wherein to lay his head hustles himself in decoying tho festive stove-pipe into an abiding place, and in juL'giiiijr uis household goods trom one houso to another. May 1 is moving day par excellence ami is a perpeluul delight lo draymen, although it strikes dismay lo the souis of the moved. When the impulse to break camp which seems to he due to the inllueilces ot budding snring-time tlnly gets possession of a denizen oi the City of the Straits, a visii is immediately made to the Campus .Martius. v. here in a most conspicuous position stand numerous gaudily decorated vehicles, which give a stranger the impre-sion that a circus procession has uuule a halt at that ixiint. All that is necessary is lo pause in the vicinity of lie vehicles and glance in their direction and a dozen lunihle-looted individuals will engage in a contest, the objective point being tiie individual who pauses. Then a confused jangle of voices in which "Vugon, sir?" "Hove you'" etc., me heard. Alter scanning the group asoiccuoii is made, ami the others wullc dejectedly hack lo Iheir wagons, lhell comes the ulleslion ol terms, 'litis is Usually discussed in a satisfactory manner, lor the gentleman of the caravan isallaolo and iiiild-inaunered Co a degree until the bargain is completed. II assures the mover that never in ins experience hmi he broken anything, and the turnituro would suffer no more than it would in moving it from one room to another. l'rohahly three-fourths of an nour after the time set tor the arrival of the vehicle it puts in an appearance, and the erstwhile sul.dued individual pulls the from duor-heil wilh vigor, und stalks in with an air of pl prietoiship Ihatuis-illusionizes Ihe gentleman of the house. '1 lie person of the haughty mien wants lo know who is going to help him, and on being uiihilyin-tormed that that is a quenliun for lnm to settle, he indignantly leaves the nonse, and returns in naif an hour with an assisltiul, who carries himself, if possible, 'with more hauteur than the lirst. Then both of them inaugurate a system of tyranny. The tactics employed are about as loliows : "slav, Jim, that's the worst pair of stairs 1 ever climhed. '-ough to break a man's hack to cairv anything up Ihein there, '.posin' 1 git hurt, why there's nlillnn' eoniin' but the reg'ier price, and there 1 am." ".Sav, inisler, there's mor'n three loads thero. I'll ha've lo charge you extra. Can't kill thuin lueses lor nulhin ." . This kind ot talk is kept up till the last, article is moved, and then if the tyrannical assistants get ten cenis for heer, tliey go oil' satisfied, hut if their threats, hints, etc., are ignored they leave witli the air of persons who iiave been subjected lo an indignity. And in either event the mover discovers thai he has on hand the same amount of fractured furniture, cracked crockery und ruined pictures us on previous occasions; and stunning on the fragments of a broken mirror he lakes a solemn until r.ever, never to move again. And be doesn't lill the next spring. . . A precious state of affairs exists on bibloy st reel, which will lead to a very profound kick-up on Jionduy. In an evil moment a tenant of a house invested ill another, of which he was to have possession today. The person who soid this house- rented auuther, and was to move in to-day. '1 he person moving out of this house rented ihe houso out of which the purchasing party is to move. These lour families will have to move in precise order or there will be an Inextricable langlingof household goods. Therelore it produced a sensation yesterday when it was learned that one family of the quadruplicate would bo unable to move before .Monday. CASUAL TALKS.

"What is it ?" . , . . "There is an epidemic of German measles in Detroit." What of it?" ,. . . "German measles is a disease somewhat rc-ocmbiing in its lirst symptoms the ordinary measles' and scariet fever. Vt lule there are probably over a hundred reported cases oi.

Scarlet fever would be called scarlet fever, the patients would be isolated and all persons in danger of taking the disease would be kept away.
