War Legislation Pertaining To The Army, Alfred A. Gillette Dec 1918

War Legislation Pertaining To The Army, Alfred A. Gillette

Michigan Law Review

At the time we entered the present war, we had approximately 1oo,ooo men actually in the federal service. We were confronted with the problem of raising and training a large army in a short time. There were in general two possible courses of action open before us. The first, which might seem to be the traditional method, was that of voluntary enlistment. But for I number of years, there had-been a growing sentiment among our people that the system of voluntary enlistment was neither right in principle nor in accord with the best interests of the nation. The plan these …

Note And Comment, Edson R. Sunderland, Edwin D. Dickinson, Horace Lafayette Wilgus, Willard T. Barbour, Victor H. Lane

Michigan Law Review

The Writ of Prohibition - Procedural Delay - A disheartening recrudescence of procedural red-tape is found in a recent decision of the Supreme Court of Ohio. A contest arose over the jurisdiction of the Public Service Commission to fix telephone rates in Cleveland. The Commission was engaged in a determination as to the reasonableness of a schedule of rates filed by the telephone company, when a petition was filed in the Common Pleas Court for an injunction against the charging of rates other than those fixed by a city ordinance.


Book Reviews, Henry M. Bates, Horace Lafayette Wilgus Dec 1918

Book Reviews, Henry M. Bates, Horace Lafayette Wilgus

Michigan Law Review

Dr. Freund's book was read by the reviewer in the summer of 1917, but a combination of circumstances, greatly regretted by him, has prevented the completion and publishing of the review then pa'rtially prepared. The justification for printing it now lies in the excellence of Dr. Freund's work and. in the vital importance of careful study by American lawyers of the too long neglected field of legislation as, with the War, apparently ended, the Nation enters upon a period of political and social reconstruction, which seems destined to be epochal. With the organized forces of the titanic struggle halted, and …


Delivery And Acceptance Of Deeds, Herbert T. Tiffany Dec 1918

Delivery And Acceptance Of Deeds, Herbert T. Tiffany

Michigan Law Review

It is proposed, in the first part of this paper, to consider the nature of the delivery of a deed, more particularly a deed of conveyance, and the facts and circumstances which the courts have regarded as justifying an inference of delivery. The second part of the paper will be devoted to a consideration of the necessity of the acceptance of a deed, in addition to delivery, in order that it may have a legal operation.


Federal Incorporation, Myron W. Watkins Dec 1918

Federal Incorporation, Myron W. Watkins

Michigan Law Review

We have traced in the foregoing part the principal cases bearing directly upon the federal power of incorporation. To gain a just perspective of the attitude the court may take upon the constitutionality of an act requiring uniform federal incorporation of all businesses engaged in interstate commerce it is necessary to complete our review by an examination of the trend of the court's decisions involving other portions of the field of commerce regulation. The construction placed upon acts exerting other forms of regulation will not be so conclusive to our inquiry as the adjudication of the cases reviewed in the …

Coercing A State To Pay A Judgement Virginia V West Virginia, Thomas Reed Powell Nov 1918

Coercing A State To Pay A Judgement Virginia V West Virginia, Thomas Reed Powell

Michigan Law Review

The Eleventh Amendment to the Federal Constitution postponed for over a century the settlement of the question whether a state of the United States can be coerced to pay a money judgment rendered against it in the Supreme Court of the United States. This it did by postponing the rendition of money judgments against a state. In 1793, it will be remembered, Chisholm v. Georgi4 had held that the provisions of Article III of the Constitution, extending the federal judicial power "to controversies * * * between a state and citizens of another state," and giving the Supreme Court original …


Alien Rights In The United States In Wartime, W C. Hunter Nov 1918

Alien Rights In The United States In Wartime, W C. Hunter

Michigan Law Review

The large number of aliens in the United States presents one of the many problems with which the Government has had to deal in the present war. Technically every immigrant from Germany and Austria-Hungary who has not taken out papers of naturalization and who therefor still owes allegiance to the Fatherland is an enemy alien. But while the great majority of these aliens are naturally sympathetic with German war aims, or at least are not ready to give their wholehearted support to the Allies, they are not a source of danger to the United States. Only a small section have …


Federal Incorporation, Myron W. Watkins Nov 1918

Federal Incorporation, Myron W. Watkins

Michigan Law Review

Since the beginning of our national history the Constitution, which is essentially the source of the law rather than its framework, has with more or less promptitude fulfilled the function of sanctioning new rules of action which will permit a fairly symmetrical institutional development in the face of the changing conditions of the environment in which the people live and think and act. Always the habits of the people are changing, always the situation facts are being modified, and the Constitution in its widest and truest meaning but provides the means whereby thru this flux the body of the people …


Note And Comment, James P. Hall, Henry M. Bates, Edgar N. Durfee, Willard T. Barbour, Ralph W. Aigler Nov 1918

Note And Comment, James P. Hall, Henry M. Bates, Edgar N. Durfee, Willard T. Barbour, Ralph W. Aigler

Michigan Law Review

The Law School - In common with all other law schools requiring college work for admission, this school has suffered a very heavy loss in attendance because of war conditions. This, however, is a matter for pride and not for discouragement for it means that our students have gone into the army or navy or other branches of the national service in very high ratio to their total number. And this is by no means due only to the effect of the Selective Service Act for from the very beginning our men have volunteered in great spirit and promptness. In …
