In this number we publish the first part of an essay by Mr. Samuel WiLUSTON, which gained the prize offered last year by the Harvard Law School Association. This prize bids fair to become an annual affair, at least for several years to come, for at the last dinner of the Association Mr. Charles C. Beaman very generously promised one hun- dred doUars a year for five years to be thus expended. In another way, also, the benefits of the Association have become apparent This year^ for the first time, the course in Constitutional Law has been raised to a full course, two hours a week throughout the academic year. It is thus needless to point out the practical usefulness of the Association. Al- though it contains already over eight hundred of the past members of the School, its numbers ought to be still further increased, for an organ- ization of this kind, composed of men who are familiar with the methods of the School, and have a sincere appreciation of them, cannot fail to have a strong influence on the School, and through it on legal education generally.
We have received the circulars which the secretaries of the two classes that were last graduated firom the School have just issued. These classes organized at the suggestion of the secretary of the Harvard Law School Association, and the circulars are appeals for aid in furtherance of the purpose to keep some record of the members of our School. All who have ever been connected with either class belong, ipso facto, to the class organization. The duty of the secretary is to collect information about the members and to issue periodical reports, giving the address of each man and containing a short account of his career. All members are urged to keep in communication with their secretary, giving him such information about themselves as would be interesting to their class. The addresses of the secretaries are as follows: Joseph Henry Beale, 5 Tremont Street, Boston; Bancroft Gherardi Davis, 23 Court Street, Boston.
