      HENRY FISH.

      HENRY Fish, one of the present leading citizens of Port Huron, Michigan, was born ?ve miles above Montreal, Canada, in 1824. His parents were of New England birth, but removed to Canada at an early day. In the year 1836 the family came to Michigan, and settled in Macomb county. In the year 1848 Henry Fish moved to Port Huron, and engaged in merchandising and lumbering. For the past eighteen years he, in connection with his brother, has been engaged in the lumbering business exclusively, the ?rm of A. & H. Fish being favorably and extensively known. Mr. Fish is one of the most active and influential lay members of the Methodist Episcopal Church in Michigan, being elected President of the State Convention of that church, held in Albion, in 1871. The Detroit Annual Conference, in company with Mr. John Owen, elected him as lay delegate to the General Conference of May, 1872.

      He was the candidate of the Prohibition party for Governor of Michigan in 1870 and again in 1872. The National Prohibition party, yet in its infancy, presented its first national ticket to the people in 1872. It had its inception in a meeting of a few friend of temperance (of whom Mr. Fish was a leading one), held in Detroit, on the 8th of January, 1867. This meeting advanced the formation of an independent political party, because, as they stated, legal prohibition of the liquor traffic is such a radical reform as cannot be accomplished through the agency of a political party composed of temperance men and the sellers and drinkers of intoxicating liquors. Both the Republican and Democratic parties are so composed, and are, therefore, organically disqualified . . .
