shows himself possessed of exceptional qualifications for his laudable under taking, and it is to be hoped that he will carry it through to success. CLEPHANE ON BUSINESS CORPO RATIONS The Organization and Management of Business Corporations. By Walter C. Clephane, LL.M., of the bar of the Supreme Court of the United States, Professor of the Law of the Organization and Man agement of Corporations in the George Washington University of Washington, D. C. 2d ed. Vernon Law Book Co., Kansas City, Mo. Pp. xx, 372 + 107 (appendices and index). ($5 delivered.) THIS is the second edition of a work originally published eight years ago as the outgrowth of an elementary course of lectures on corporation law at George Washington University, intended to be of aid to students, laymen, and practitioners not requiring the more extended treatises. The appearance of a new edition so soon affords evidence of utility of the work for the purpose intended, and the revision is a careful and thorough one, the book having been largely rewritten in view of the rapid growth of case-law, and having been elaborated in certain sections, not ably in that dealing with voting trusts. Citations have been multiplied and the practical value of the treatise is per ceptibly enhanced by its new form. THE LAW OF CLUBS Wertheimer's Law Relating to Clubs. 4th ed. By A. W. Chaster, of the University of London, LL.B., and of the Middle Temple, Barrister-at-law, author of The Law Relating to Public Opinion. Stevens & Haynes. Temple Bar, London. Pp. 317, including appendices and index. (10s.) A SHORT treatise suffices for the statement of the English law re lating to clubs, which is set forth in four chapters only, treating of the various kinds of clubs and their organization, registration, and constitutions, statutory requirements as regards liquor licensing, duties and taxes, betting and gaming,

etc., club contracts and torts, and ex pulsion. In an appendix are found model rules, or as we should say con stitution and by-laws, of a club, and also of a workingmen's club and institute registered under the Friendly Societies Acts, and another appendix contains the text of a number of statutes. The book illustrates the ease of stating the law of a single uniform jurisdiction. Obviously to set out the law of clubs in the United States with equal com pleteness would call for a voluminous treatise. NOTES The second impression of Lectures on Legal History by James Barr was issued on Saturday, May 31. The Harvard University Press re ports that the demand for this book exhausted the first edition of 1,000 copies within three months of the date of publication. In an able monograph on "Privileges and Immunities of Citizens of the United States," Arnold Johnson Lien, Ph.D., former Richard Watson Gilder Fellow in Political Science in Columbia University, has analyzed, from a careful review of decisions of the United States Supreme Court, all that which is comprised in the meaning of federal citizenship. An interest ing part of the essay deals with the opposing theories, of which one, holding the privileges and immunities to be "those which of right belong to the citizens of all free governments," has so lost ground as to have become practically discredited.
