Trratdrnt 8. P. Davidson kits It considerable attention In till ad dress And tho committee on legislation af ferUnf the profession dealt with It at even treater l'nth. Mr. Mcintosh of that com mitten submitted a resolution for a bill leaving the Jurisdiction of the supreme eourt aa It now Is, but leaving to the legis lature the number of Judges and their sala ries, this to be dona by an amendment -to the constitution. Judge J. B. Letton of Falrbury opposed further attempt at secur ing constitutional amendment and argued for a constitutional convention. Finally his motion that It ba deolared the sense of -the association that the present legislature should prepare for a constitutional conven tion prevailed. President Davids!! Address. Yesterday's session opened at 2:30 with the address of 'resident Davidson, which was In part as follows: Two years ago the docket of the su preme i-Tiirt of the state was so large ami xo rapidly InrreHeltig that the Judges Were overwhelmed with the work before them, the delays IneMcnt to the condition of the docket were producing In many cases in absolute denial of Justice, and the prH'.tice of the taw was becoming un settled and disorganized. Through your rcc'tmmcndHtl'tn and the pertMent efforts of our committees a tem.orary expedient was resorted to. A commission of nine nombers whs authorised and appointed, it Is true that the able commission that a appointed has so effectively aided the court tliiit the docket of that court la almost clear, and the court and the pro leHKlon can now hope that the old busi ness will soon be entirely disponed of. This expedient that was adopted by reason of tho force of circumstances, while It lias proven to liavi been effective, Wat and is not entirely satisfactory to either inn nar or trie court. Hume iicrmuuei.t relief In the wav of an liit-reatM of the lumber cf the Judge or tne supreme court Is urgently demanded it Is evltient that the only permanent re lief irom an overcrowded docket can only come Irom an Increase In the number of the judges of '.he supreme court. Whether this tun be best accomplished by the suh mlKdoii of an amendment making such provision, or inlllhiH u constitutional con vention that will be until irlzed to propose n entire reorganization or tne court, ana proposw other mu. h needed change In our cons.ltutlon, It is for the people under ymir lend to determine. Uut for the ures rnt, usrll permanent relief can be obtained, It si eun. to me to be wise to continue tne present commission or provide for ccmirnssuin or a smniier n.imlier of cum- miKHionerM to continue to assist the court To Curb Anarchy.

VtT.h becoming deference to the wlMjorrt of tho great lawyers In the United Mtatts senato and honee of representatives, with a keen sensibility of my own Ignor ance, a, id Inability to comprehend or under etu.m the entire situation, 1 do not hesi tate to declare that my belief Is that the ur ported legislation Is entirely Inadequate.

This definition of this crime should also Include any counseling, encouraging, suggesting, aiding or aliening the commission of either of the offenses above referred to. in my Judgment real, actual treason Is committed every time (lie killing of any officer of the government Is advised or taught or encouraged either by public address, or by publication In the press, or by private counseling or ad vice. The proposed legislation under con sideration, by congress, 1 tear, would b Ineffective, and If unconstitutional, will b fcl.ully abortive and useless. Committee on I.ea Edacatlon. . Tu gist ot the report of tbe committee on legal education aa presented by Chair '' man. H. H. Wilson of Lincoln is found In 'the' following resolutions, which were adopted with only one dissenting voice: . Resolved, That this association recom mends such legislation as will require all persona, before registering for the study of law with a view of admission to the bar, to prove by satisfactory examination that they posseas a good Kngllsli education. Kesolved, That this association recom mends such legislation as will require ap . plti ants for admission to the bar to show that they have devoted at least three years to the study of law. Judge V. D. McHugh, at chairman, stated that the committee on law reform a considered that ths committee on legisla tion affecting the profession had sufficiently ' covered tne ground ana therefore bad no report to make, I.egislatloa AnTrvtlaa; I'rofessloa In presenting the report of the commit tee of legislation affecting the profession. Chairman K. V. Breukenrldge said In part in temporary expedient or a supreme reurt commission has worked excellently; largely because of the endorsement given the plan by this association. A commission of nine was provided by the session of the legislature which convened two years ago, Tho court whs fortunate In the selection of the commissioners and excent that th.v have all had at least twice as much to do as tney should have had In Justice to them selvt-a and the litigants of this state, their . work, has been of a very high standard and the majority of the reported opinions emanating from the various members of the Lommisslon sre equal to those of any court and are far superior to mu h of tha Nebraska case law which present members . or me court nave occasionally followed. but, while following it. have apologised for doing so. lour committee recommends the continuation of a commission of nine, glv Ins. option to the court to reduce the num ber If and when the business of the su preme court shall make It expedient to do so. The committee will likewise recommend to the association a Joint resolution amend ing the constitution so that the number of the supreme court and the eslarles of the Judges shall be left to the legislature. To Klmpllfy Appeals, . Your committee recommends to the as sociation a measure which materially sim plifies the appeal of cause from the dis trict to the supreme court. Under the present machinery of the statute there Is too much technicality, it Is proposed now to abolish proceedings In error In civil causes and abolish likewise writs of error and assignments of error. The bill which has been prepared for your consideration provide that all civil causes shall go from the district to the supreme court by ap peal; that the case In the supreme court shall have the sime title as In the district court. The Jurisdiction of the supreme court will be conferred by the filing of a transcript containing the final Judgment sought to be reversed. A bill of exceptions Is to be settled In the manner now pro vided. This bill does not Interfere with the present statutes regarding the settlement of bills of exceptions. Hut the trcnscrlpt mA ih hill of rxcentlnns. If snv. must be filed within six months from tne aaie or the Judgment or final order sougni h i reversed. No petition In error or assign- : ment of error are required, but within such time after docketing the case ns the su preme court may by a general ruie nx, the appellant must rile his brief and the grounds stated In the brief for tne re versal of the judgment snan consm uir the assignment of error required. The court will have, under the bill as prepared. the option to notice any plain error noi assigned. Another section of the Pill ss prepared gives tne supreme coun. uiuc tlon In the matter of costs. Another measure Is offered preserving the writ of error to the district court from irihunala inferior to the district court and another measure Is recommended providing for supersedeas bonds, whicn is a virtual re-enactment of the supersedeas statute in error proceedings now exletlng. but which changes the condition of supersedeas bonds In equity rases, to require an appro ot from Judgment decrees or final orders dl ih sale or delivery of possession of real property, to give s bond to pay the value of the use and occupation of the property during the penaency ui mo appeal. Resolution Anent Supreme Conrt. After the presentation of the report J. H. Mcintosh of the same committee submitted the following resolution, which was adopted: Whereas, The supreme court of this state, according to data furnished by its clerk, will be more then 600 cases In ar rears by the expiration of the terms of the present supreme court commissioners; and Whereas, No possibility exists of reliev ing said court by an Increase in the num ber of Judges through a constitutional amendment within the next two years; and Whereas, The retention of the present number of said commissioners Is not only necessary for the time being to enable said court to clear Its docket, but Is also neces sary In order that the members of the said court and commission may have suffi cient time to perform satisfactorily the work devolving upon them; and Whoreas, The Judges of the said court are in the best position to determine when the number of said commissioners may be safely and properly reduced; therefore belt Kesolved, That It Is the eense of the Ne brsska State Bar association that the present legislature ehould make provision for continuing the present number of com missioners for a period not exceeding two years, and empowering the Judges of eald court to reduce the number thereof when ever. In the opinion of said Judges, the business of said court and the condition of its docket will so warrant. Other feature of the commmee report will be dealt with today, the rest of yes terday afternoon being consumed In a dis cussion. This afternoon at 4 o'clock, 1n district courtroom No. 1, where the sessions are ninv held. Tir. K. Benlamla Andrews de livers his address on "Socialism," and to this the general public Is especially urged to come. Of new officers to be elected there was little talk yesterday, and a number of prominent members denied that any slate has yet been decided upon. FREE COAL IS OPPOSED Benator Aldricu Claim?

It was through the blue haxe from many rich Havanas that the visiting delegates to tho annual meeting of the State Bar asso ciation saw Omaha on their first night hero. They were the guests of tbe Omaha Bar as sociation at a smoker given In the parlors cf the Commercial club, and tbe natural affinity of all legal minds found Just the proper flavor In the mellowing smoke to make the evening a social success. Not nil the delegates had yet arrived, but those who were in town were glad or It, ana those who were not will be sorry for It when they hear today what they mlsBed, The sole et speech of the evening was by J. H. Mcintosh, whese subject was, "Tne Power of Congress to Regulate Industrial Corporations." The paper treated the sub lect exhaustively, each point bolng rein forced by citations from federal court ae clslons.

When ths senate met today a house bill was passed amend ing the International revenue laws allowing all distilled spirits now In bonded ware houses, or which may hereafter be pro duced and deposited therein, the same al lowance for loss or leakage and evaporation which now exists on distilled spirits de posited prior to January 1. 1S99. A bill was also passed authorizing the secretary of the Interior to prescribe rules and regulations for tbs procurement ot timber and stone for domestic and in dustrial purposes Id the Indian Territory. Opposes Free Coal. Mr. Aldrlch (R. I.) then addressed ths senste on the question of removing the duty on coal. He began by stating that such a plan would not afford tbe reltof sought. It Infringed the rights ot ths house with respect to revenue bill. The attempt to afford relief, said Mr. Aldrlch, through a method that would open a discussion here ss to the constitutional rights of the senate and ths constitutional prerogative of the house that would out last ths coal famine la not a profltabls method of securing results. Mr. Aldrlch recited the facts relating to the coal tariff, saying that In 1894, when the democrats were In control of ths sen ate, tho house sent the Wilson bill to the senate with coal free of duty. Tbe demo cratic finance committee and the democratic senate with the exception ot Mr. Hill of New York, voted to put a duty of 40 cents a ton on coal, although they had the power to admit coal free of duty. Turning to the democratlo side and speaking with considerable emphasis, Mr. Aldrlch said: You have always been In favor of free coal when your opinions were of no value to the country; on the day wnen you coma s-lve the country free coal you deliberately and unanimously voted the other way. It therefore comes witn ill grace ior senators to criticise the action of the senate in is In view of the action taken In 18!H. Mr. Aldrlch saldsthe high price ot fuel In the country now was not due to the present tariff. Cleveland frg-ed It. Mr. Vest (Mo.) replying, said Mr. Aldrlch's remarks could be resd between tha lines. Ha simply was opposed to the resolution. He said It was an open secret how the rate of 40 cents a ton was put on coal In the Wil son bill; that there were five democratlo senators opposed to the bill who were In position to dictate what should be placed In tbe bill and that their votes were needed to pass the measure. President Cleveland, ' he said, had urged free coal on congress. "We were held up," said Mr. Vest, "to use plain vernacular, and told If we dared to put free coal In the bill It would bs defeated. A com promise therefore was effected on the basis of 40 cents a ton. "What does It matter how anybody voted in 1894 V he Inquired. "Is that an answer to the poor, freezing people now who de mand Immediate relief f Ha referred to his former statement that the rates in tbe Ditigley bill were made so- high' a to render possible the - negotiation of .' reci procity agreements and said' ft was based on information he believed to bs true. In support of this allegation be read an editorial from a Washington paper refer ring to a private conversation in which Mr Dlngley was declared to. have made the statement. Mr. Hale (Me.) characterized the article as a remarkable statement. "It was never made in Mr. Dlngley's life time," he said. And then, speaking of the Dlngley bill, declared It "a great, mag nificent anrl munlclfent gift to the American people In the cause of protection and pros perlty." Mr. Hoar (Mass.) declared that such resolutions as that under discussion were futile in securing the objects sought and contended that all legislation s fleeting revenue should originate in the house. Mr. Vest ex-.alned his action In offering a resolution Instead ot a bill, saying he felt sure a bill, after Its reference to a com mittee, would never be reported. His ob ject was to call attention to the condition of the country- Reverting to his statement concerning the object of plactng the rates so high in tbe Dlngley bill, he read a letter from the editor of the Philadelphia Bulletin, saying the statement attributed to Mr. Dlngley was made to a writer on tbe staff of that paper In March,. 1SS7. Hal Defends Dingier Mr. Hale entered Into a defense of Mr. D'ngley, saying the statement attributed to blm was radically opposed to all his utter ances and involved the charge of Insln cerlty. The debate was cut ihort by Mr. Quay (Pa.) demanding tbe regular ordtr and the resolution went over, to come up on tbe next legislative day. The statehood bill then was taken up and Mr. Nelson (Minn.) continued his remarks begun on Monday. He bad not concluded when, at 4 o'clock, .by unanimous consent, the senate considered unobjected bills on the calendar. The following were passed: Granting additional lands adjacent to the site ot the University of Montana to the university; to authorize, settle and com promise certain litigation pending In the circuit court for the western district of North Carolina, In which the eastern band of Cherokee Indians are Involved; to re- divide the district of Alaska Into three re cording and Judicial divisions. The bill providing for the retirement ot Captain R. P. Hobson brought forth a pro test from Mr. Cockrell (Mo.), who thought congress should not be made a court of ap peals to hear applications from officers would sllow a first lieutenant to be chief of tbe conatsbulary with the rank of briga dier general. Vpon receiving so affirma tive reply he characterized the bill ss vicious. Mr. Msddox (Gs.) opposed, saying In the face of tho request of the secretary of war f-r 13.000.000 lor the relief of the people of the Philippines. It was wronr. to increase the pay of an army offk-er at the expense of the Filipinos. He thought there must be plenty of genersls In the army who could be detailed for duty if higher rank was necersary. "There Is General F'.inston," he said. "He would make an elegant chief of police, and If colonels are needed, the woods are full of them." An amendment by Mr. Jones (Vs.) to limit the number of assistant chiefs to four was sdopted. Mr. Hull (la.) offered as an amendment to authorize tbe appointment ot a brigadier general aa rblef of tne con stabulary and officers not below tha rank of lieutenant colouel. Mr. Cooper, In charge of the bill, do maoded a record vote upon the Hull substi tute. It resulted In a tie of 103 to 103 and the substitute was lost. A roll call was demanded on tbe third reading ot the bill, which was ordered 101 to 83 and the bill passed. Tbe resignation of Lanham of Texas, who has been elected governor ot Texas, was laid before the house. The resignation Is to take effect on January 15. At 4:15 tbe bouse adjourned.
