would be well represented as a result
of Gov. Felch's residence there as com-
missioner for the settlement of land
claims. The number of California
pamphlets is 56. Nine of them relate to
the New Almaden quick silver mine
case, and contain the arguments of the
lawyers. "Narrative of Events and
Difficulties in the Colonization of Ore-
gon and the Settlement of California,"
by Hall J. Kelley. Boston, 1852.
Mr. Kelley claims to have been the
American whose efforts colonized Ore-
gon; but of credit, and of fortune, and
almost of life itself he was robbed by
enemies.. He published a "History of
the Colonization of Oregon" in 1850
(which is in the collection), and is the
author of innumerable pamphlets and
contributions to journals; but, for some
reason or other his claims were ignored
by the public and also by Congress,
11bich he petitioned for relief. Possibly
he was, as he says a certain newspaper
described him to be, "a crack-brained
schoolmaster of Boston."
Of course so methodical a man as
Gov. Fetch was, preserved copies of the
documents that created the commission
and defined its duties. There are: first,
Treaty Stipulation Between Maxico and
the United States; second, An Act of
Congress of March 3, 1851, to ascertain
and settle the private land claims in
the State of California; third, Instruc-
tions of the Department of the Interior

is Regulations of the Commissioners,

MiEcnigan's Eastern Trip.
James A. Le Rosy, athletic editor.of
the Detroit Free Press, comments as
follows on Michigan's decision to send
a relay team .east:. -
There will perhaps be some criticism
of the Untiversity of MlEhigan for its
determination to send a relay team east
has been holding these meets for the
past four years and has each year gone
to the pains to arrange classes for the
leading western universities and to of-
fer them very fair inducements to send
their teams east to meet the pick of
that section. ,Slichigan's. acceptance of
the invitation this year is in a sense a
reply to the attempts Pennsylvania has
made in the past to extend courtesies
to the west. The meeting of the relay
teams in Philadelphia is quite an af-
fair also, as the most pleasing mani-
festation of the benefits of athletic af-
fairs between the different colleges of
the country is probably at the various
big.field days and athletic meets of that
sort;.where there are a good number of
representatives of different colleges
present. In this big relay race com-
petition Michigan will run in the cham-
pionship event, with Pennsylvania,
Yale and Georgetown to comprise the
other teams in the event. Each team
will be made up of four men, and each
man will run.a quarter of a mile. There
ari some crack quarter-milers in the
east just now, and with the material
there is to draw on for this event, win-
ning the race or showing up well to the
front would ha a flattering thing forj
the western institution.
