Mr. MELVILLE, for four years last past secretary of the Repub- lican Club of the city of New York, and of the Harvard Law School Association, and now one of the non-commissioned offi- cers of Company "B" Seventh Regiment, was graduated at Dartmonth in 1879, and in 1884 took the Master's Degree and LL. B., cum laude at Harvard. He prepared for college at the Rev. Dr. Leach's school at Keene, N. H. At Dartmouth he was a member of a well known local soci- ety, the Kappa Kappa Kappa, one of the oldest and best in the institution, and, on the completion of his course, was a com- mencement debater with the Hon. Hiram D. UPTON, late speak- er of the N. H. House of Representatives on the question, "Is suffrage a Birthright?" After spending two years as principal of the high school at Winchendon, Mass., he entered Harvard, where he remained three years, and was honored by being appointed by the faculty to represent the law school, at the university commencement in 1884, with an oration on the subject of "National Regulation of Inter-State Commerce." Coming from there to New York, he entered the office of James C. CARTER, the distinguished leader of the local bar, and was admitted to practice in June, 1885. In December of that year he formed a business association with Senator Roscoe CONKLINE, which continued till the latter's death in 1888. Later he became a member of a partnership with Hon. Daniel DOUGHERTY and William A. SWEETSER (assistant corporation counsel), and also was one of the editorial writers in an edition of "Smith's Leading Cases."
