The Centenary of Modern Government, 12 Annual Report of the American Bar Association 235 (1889)


The closing quarter of this century has been, and is still to be, crowded with great anniversaries. A long series of American centennials is soon to close with that of the voyage which first really added the new world to the old, and our greatest cities are contending in generous rivalry for the honor of its fitting celebration. England, last year, commemorated the peaceful revolution which set William of Orange on her throne, and France is now on fire with the recollections of the fiercer strigglc that, a century later, re-created her institutions.
