The resolutions were read at length and spread at large on the Journal, as follows:

At a session of the board of supervisors for the county of Macomb held at the court house, in the city of Mt. Clemens, on Friday, the 12th day of March, 1897, the following resolution was unanimously passed :

Resolved, that the board enter a unanimous protest against the bill now before the House of Representatives, having passed the Senate,

repealing the tax on mortgages. We regard the proposed act as class legislation of the most obnoxious character, relieving as it does from their just proportion of the public burdens men who of all are the most capable of paying.

We request our Representatives at Lansing to oppose the measure, having no doubt that in so doing they will voice the overwhelming sentiment of the people of this county.

STATE OF MICHIGAN, L

No. 1233. By Mr. Gustin: Resolutions of the Chase Benjamin Gun Club relative to proposed amendments to the game laws. On demand of Mr. Gustin,

The resolutions were read at length and spread at large on the Journal, as follows:

At a regular meeting of the Chase Benjamin Gun Club of Alpena, Michigan, the following resolutions were unanimously adopted:

WHEREAS, A bill has been introduced in the House of Representatives to repeal the act which prevents the sale of partridge and quail in the State of Michigan, and permit the sale thereof, being House bill No. 160,

and

WHEREAS, Such a law would result in the extermination of partridge and quail in this State, working extreme hardship upon the actual settlers by depriving them of the use of such game for food, and would also be very detrimental to legitimate sportsmen; now, therefore

Resolved, That we hereby enter our most earnest protest against the passage of such a law, and commend that feature of the present game law, and respectfully ask that this provision be retained in the game law of this State, as we have seen its beneficial results in propagating these species of game, and protecting them from slaughter by pot-hunters; further

Resolved, That a copy of these resolutions be forwarded to our Representatives at Lansing, and we request that they be spread upon the Legislative Journal. Dated Alpena, Michigan, February 3, 1897.
