Geology And Oil Resources Of The West Border Of The San Joaquin Valley North Of Coalinga, California, Us Department Of The Interior, Robert Anderson, Robert W. Pack

Federal Documents

The main purpose of this report is to present the geologic evidences of the existence of petroleum in the rocks along the foothills that form the western border of the San Joaquin Valley, Cal., between the Coalinga' oil district and Livermore Pass and to discuss the chances of finding oil in commercial quantity in this region. With this end in view a general description of the physical features of the region is given, with special reference to the geologic features which have a bearing on the presence or absence of petroleum and which have determined the conclusions reached regarding the ...

The "Continuous Voyage" Doctrine During The Civil War, And Now, Simeon E. Baldwin Jan 1915

The "Continuous Voyage" Doctrine During The Civil War, And Now, Simeon E. Baldwin

Faculty Scholarship Series

Mr. Atherly-Jones, in his Commerce in War, says that what the courts of the United States did, during the Civil War, was not to apply the principle of a continuous voyage (which had been originally asserted in support of national monopolies of colonial trade), to the carriage of contraband goods, still less to blockades; but to depart from the old rules of evidence.

A Statement To The Alumni, Henry M. Bates Jan 1915

A Statement To The Alumni, Henry M. Bates

Articles

Plans are now complete for the demonstration by Michigan alumni of their loyalty to and interest in their Alma Mater. Michigan has never before called upon all of her former students to help her in any great movement for the benefit of the entire University. It has required some all comprehending movement like the Union to afford this opportunity, but now the time and the opportunity are at hand, when Michigan men may put their shoulders to the wheel and carry through a project, which "Prexy" Angell, President Hutchins, the Board of Regents, the Senate Council and the Alumni Association ...

The following is a statement, with such details as I should think would answer the purposes of other chapters, of the ways and means adopted for securing the present building just completed at Ann Arbor.


The Commodity Clause Of The Hepburn Act, Edwin C. Goddard Jan 1915

The Commodity Clause Of The Hepburn Act, Edwin C. Goddard

Articles

The Supreme Court of the United States has added another to the interesting line of cases construing the so-called "Commodity Clause" of the HEPBURN ACT of 1906. In United States v. Delaware, Lackawanna & Western Railroad Co. and the Delaware, Lackawanna & Western Coal Co., decided on June 21, 1915, 35 Sup. Ct. 873, the court reversed the decree of the District Court as reported in 213 Fed. 240, and found the relation and contract between the Railroad Company and the Coal Company to be in violation of the HEPBURN ACT and the SHERMAN ACT.


Revocability Of Licenses - The Rule Of Wood V. Leadbitter, Ralph W. Aigler Jan 1915

Revocability Of Licenses - The Rule Of Wood V. Leadbitter, Ralph W. Aigler

Articles

That a mere license purporting to create in the licensee a new right or privilege is revocable at law at the will of the licensor seems to have been definitely settled in England by Wood v. Leadbitter, 13 M. & W. 838 (1845). It was there held that the plaintiff who had entered the close of the defendant's master after the purchase of a proper ticket could be forcibly ousted, notice having been first given that he should leave. The only remedy open to the ousted ticket holder-in law at least-no excessive violence1 having been used, is to sue for breach of the contract. The rule of Wood v. Leadbitter has been almost uniformly followed by the American courts. Homey v. Nixon, 213 Pa. St. 20, 110 Am. St. Rep. 520, 1 L. R. A. (N. S.) 1184; Meisner v. Ferry Co., 154 Mich. 545; W. W. V.

Should Applicants For Admission To The Bar Be Required To Take A Law School Course?, Henry M. Bates Jan 1915

Should Applicants For Admission To The Bar Be Required To Take A Law School Course?, Henry M. Bates

Articles

If the requirements for admission to the bar had been advanced in any thing like equal degree with the progress made in law schools, there would be unqualified reasons for rejoicing in the prospect. Unfortunately, however, this is far from the case, though some notable advances even in this respect have been made. It is remarkable and unfortunate that in America and in Great Britain, whose system of law is undoubtedly the most difficult of all systems in the world to master, we require no institutional or school training of the men who are to fill the important functions of ...

An Anglo-American Prize Tribunal, Simeon E. Baldwin Jan 1915

An Anglo-American Prize Tribunal, Simeon E. Baldwin

Faculty Scholarship Series

One of the best achievements of The Hague Conference of 1907 was the scheme for an International Court of Appeal in Prize Cases. The world was not ready for it, and the differences of view between the greater and the lesser Powers have not unnaturally prevented its ratification. But is it not, under present circumstances, possible that a shorter step in the same direction might and could be taken by some of those Powers who are most concerned in the proper disposition of prize court proceedings?

A Four Year Course In Law, Henry M. Bates Jan 1915

A Four Year Course In Law, Henry M. Bates

Articles

In the February, 1914, number of The Alumnus, devoted in part to the Michigan Law School, some account was given of the large number of new courses which had been added recently to the curriculum. The courses commented upon in that discussion, besides one advanced course in procedure, deal mainly with what may be called extra-legal or at least extra-professional subjects, such as the History of English Law, the Philosophy of Law and advanced courses in Roman Law and Jurisprudence. Prior to this period of expansion in the law curriculum many other additions had been made to the list of ...


The Form Of Summons Under The Recent Michigan Judicature Act, W. Gordon Stoner Jan 1915

The Form Of Summons Under The Recent Michigan Judicature Act, W. Gordon Stoner

Articles

It would be rather remarkable if in revising such a large portion of the statutes as was undertaken by the Commission on Revision and Consolidation of Statutes of the State of Michigan, appointed in 1913, which reported to the legislature the recently enacted Judicature Act (Public Acts of Michigan, 1915, ยง 314), some ambiguity or uncertainty were not to appear in the revision. The Judicature Act is no exception to the general rule, as the lawyer who attempts to begin suit by summons under it will discover at the very outset.


Changes In International Law, Simeon E. Baldwin Jan 1915

Changes In International Law, Simeon E. Baldwin

Faculty Scholarship Series

Changes in international law, as they may occur from time to time, will always be of especial interest to the United States. We were the first power to recognize in the constitution of our government the existence of such a thing as international law, and the duty of enforcing it. That instrument, it will be recollected, declares that Congress shall have power to define and punish "offenses against the law of nations." Under this provision, our Supreme Court has said: "A right, secured by the law of nations to a nation or its people, is one the United States as ...


The Permanent Neutrality Treaties, Gordon E. Sherman Jan 1915

The Permanent Neutrality Treaties, Gordon E. Sherman

Faculty Scholarship Series

The present European war has thrown into sharp relief the status of those smaller governments which, although in nowise shorn of attributes of sovereignty within their own borders, have nevertheless been placed by virtue of most solemn inter-national guarantees in a position of perpetual neutrality towards all other Powers. They are not to wage offensive warfare, nor, if the obligations resulting from these guarantees are faithfully observed, may their territories be in any degree the theatre of hostilities. While the chief examples of this peculiar status,- Belgium, Luxemburg and Switzerland,-are plainly, by reason of restricted area and population, in ...


Written Acknowledgment Necessary To Waive The Statute Of Limitations, Charles E. Clark Jan 1915

Written Acknowledgment Necessary To Waive The Statute Of Limitations, Charles E. Clark

Faculty Scholarship Series

In Connecticut a statute provides that "In actions against the representatives of deceased persons, no acknowledgment or promise shall be sufficient evidence of a new or continuing contract to take the case out of the statute of limitations, unless the same be contained in some writing made or signed by the party to be charged thereby." There are similar statutes in other jurisdictions. Under such a statute the question may arise whether the bar of the statute of limitations is waived where the debtor before his death gives the creditor promissory notes of less amount than the face value of ...

Breach Of Landlord's Covenant As Defense To Action For Rent, Ralph W. Aigler Jan 1915

Breach Of Landlord's Covenant As Defense To Action For Rent, Ralph W. Aigler

Articles

It is undoubtedly well settled that if the agreement to pay rent is dependent upon the performance by the landlord of some undertaking on his part, the failure by the landlord so to perform is a good defense to an action for the rent. It is equally well settled that if the agreements are independent such failure by the landlord is no defense. The difficulty arises in determining whether the agreements are dependent or independent. That question is one of construction, and it cannot be expected that all the cases may be satisfactorily reconciled. Two very late cases involving this ...
