Correspondence to The Br.) When the
American liar association, the great law
yer' club of the country, holda Ita annual
meeting, the publlo acta the lawyer at
play. Usually the gathering excite lit
tle general Intercut outalde o( the pro
feaelon, but at thla aeaalon th lawyer at
play has a practical auggeatlon which 'can
not (all to call th attention of the peo
ple. .; The three day' aeaalon at St. Paul
Juat cloned waa one of th beat In Inter
t and attendance Jn the history of the
association. On hundred member, many
with their wlvea and. numbering dis
tinguished lawyer and judgea from almost
very atat cam together to celebrate the
twenty-ninth annual meeting and to enjoy
th hoapltallty of tha people of St. Paul
Th dally session were held In the newly
finished .caplfot building at fit. Paul,
beautiful msrbl palace, on of the great
capltot building of America, of which th
people ef Minnesota are Justly . proud.
. When lawyer congregate It is expected
that tha vnt will b a talk-feat. But
th program at Bt. Paul waa varied o aa
to permit excursion to polnta of Interest
with Junction and recaption to the ladlea,
ending with a banquet at the new audi
torium at Mlnneapolla
Tha principal addreaaea were delivered
by Oeorg R. Peck of Chicago, president
of th association, Judge Alton B. Parker
of New Tork, . Roaco Pound of Lincoln
and Thomaa J. Kernan of Loulelaha. The
addresaea supplemented each other and
were notable for directing the attention
to th present day abuse In the admlnls
tratlon of law; too many-statutory laws,
too much undigested legislation, too many
eourta, too many Judgea, too much technl
oallty In Ita administration, leading to con
fusion, Interminable delay and a denial of
Justice. It la pointed out how the rub
Msh of formalism and 'archslclam of the
law has )ong been swept' into the ash
barrel by proa-Tensive nations like Eng.
land and Germany. - By a singular per
versity America Is fifty year behind th
times tn tha administration of law aa
eompared with her contemporaries. What
Is needed 'I uniformity of law and sim
plicity of procedure, a minimum of courts
and expanse and a maximum of Justice
so that th law may keep pace with mod
rn business methods In swiftness and ef-
flcacy, Thla Is th preachment of the
American Bar association at St. Paul for
reform 1 which Oi business world de

their coming and through no. fault of the

Alton B. Parker of New Tork la easily
th biggest man at th convention. Six
( feet In hi stockings, aa atralght aa an
. Indian and with shoulders that would

with admiration. Judge Parker tower a

Tork City with the plaudits of conqueror

turned toward tha homecoming of tha
dletlngulshed Nebraakan, Alton B. Parker
f New Tork was quietly reading a paper
.on legal ethics before a select .company
r jawyera at th capttol of Minnesota
. I had th pleasure) of Introducing Eleasor
Wakeley to Mr. Parker Jn the lobby of th

." I have long wanted to meet you and
thank you for tha opportunity I had In
voting for a democrat. For two succas
alve presidents I elections I waa compelled
to vote for a republican, and I am only
sorry that there wr not enough demo
crat In th country in 10 to elect you."
Th reply of Judge Parker was no less
Hearty. "I congratulate you." he aald
"for your support and your courage. The
iroupi .i am naving taeaa days I to
find any one who la frank enough to ad
mu-tnat ns vota for n at all." And

SHIPPERS AND RAILROADS
Representatives Will Meet in Oat a ha
Tuesday on Demurrage
In order to try to adjust the difference;
existing . between the railroads and th
heavy Hilppers Of Omaha, a meeting hal
been called by the' board of manager ut
the railroad, to) which the khtppers hav
been Invited to attend Tuesday, In Omaha.
The question of demurrage Is entirety out
side of the traffic departments and comes
entirely under the jurisdiction of lha man
agerial and operation departments.
The new rate law went Into effect August
Ut, and the Western Car Service- associa
tion huftled out a new schedule on a day'
notice, to the shippers, by which they were '
Klven two tUys In' which to unload coul. In
stead of live day aa by a special provision.
The clause In the. new rules read no dif
ferent than in the old, tha difference being
that they will he enforced. " .
That aome reads dp not think their new
position la very well taken 1 evident by th
fact that Saturday at Kansas,. City th
Missouri Pacific announced the withdrawn
ot the new rule and gave notice that th
old rules would.be left in effect until som
other action was taken.- , '
The meeting Is called for Tuesday morn
ing, when the shipper will have an oppor
tunity to present their grievances against
the operations of the Western Car Servlco
association. Some strong charges ar belna-
made against thl association,; It being de
clared In the meeting' last week that th
railroad wer bound in a trust, and that
th association was not being operated for
th benefit of th shipper, when In reality
It should be a great help to them. Counsel
ha been employed and the case, will bt
pushed unless some settlement is reached
