He was educated at Montreal College, and was graduated in law in McGill University, from which he received the degrees of B. C. L, and D. C.L. He was admitted to the Lower Canada bar in October, 1860, and from that time until 1872 devoted himself to his profession, in which he attained success as a commercial lawyer. In the latter year he was elected to the Canadian parliament for Jacques Cartier, but was defeated for Beauharnois in 1874. He was re-elected for Jacques Cartier in 1874, and again in 1889. During the session of 1882 he pro-meted and carried through the bill authorizing marriage with a deceased wife's sister. He is a Conservative, and a strong supporter of the policy of Sir John A. Macdonald, and of the ]ate Sir George E. Cartiers. He founded, with W. HI. Kerr and others, the "Revue critique," and is the author of "Treatise on Bills of Exchange," the "Insolvent Act," and "Laws of Marriage." He is well known by his contributions on constitutional law and international questions, both on this continent and in Europe.
