Michigan Judges

George G Bates

Democrats, Whigs and Republicans are all entitled to praise, and the results of such judicious and honest management have enabled Michigan to build her new state capitol—her pride and glory—at a quarter less expense than Illinois has paid for the same work, and without a dollar of the money being stolen. Yes, 45 years have rolled away. A part of the years 1833-4 I spent in the state of Monroe. She had a body of distinguished men, whose influence was all-powerful, and when Monroe wanted anything the rest of the state was ready to unite in supplying her wishes. Governors, judges —in fact, the whole Democratic party could do nothing without Monroe. The Democratic party used to shake us old Whigs up lively in those days, excepting when we tried them with coon skins and hard cider, and then we beat them gloriously. I was 21 years old when I came to Michigan. Previous to that time I had spent three years at the study of law in the office of John C. Spencer, in the interior of New York.
