an aeroplane at Kort Myer, for which he

which Orville Wright will have to fulfill

In which to do a .littlu shop work on his

which to complete a few details. Mr.
Herring was originally to deliver his

extension of thirty days at his request and

pers to the Importance of Orville Wright's
flying feats nt Fort Myer and liken the
effect produced throughout the world by
this masterful demonstration to the circling
of the Eiffel tower by Santos-Dumont In
1900. With practical unanimity they hall
the Fort Myer performance as marking the
definite conquest of the air by man. A

HASTINGS, Neb., Sept. 11. (Special.)
Yesterday afternoon at the court house
in this city occurred a meeting of Ne
braska county Judges. They gatht red
from every section of the state In response
to a call from Judge F. L. Carrlco of
Minden, who desired a conference with Ills
brother Judges over the chaotic condition
of the probate fee system and the many
Irregularities and crudities In the practice
of these courts. There Is no manner of
educational or legal qualification for the
Nebraska county Judge. It was to initiate
a movement looking toward the eradication
01 mesa and many other probate evils
that the Judges met, organized and laid
plans for a campaign of education that
they hope and believe will result at an
early date In much useful legislation.
F. L. Carrlco of Minden was elected
chairman and R. C. Roper of David City,
secretary-treasurer. The following com
mittees were appointed:
Resolution Judge W. R. Fulton' of
Geneva. R. C. Roper of David Citv and
H. E. gpafford of Beatrice.
lor Correcting Error and Irregular
ities in Statute Relating to Fees Judges
George Losey of Hloomlngton 1enlle of
Omaha and J. C. Moore of McCook.
On Jurisdiction and Codification of Pro
bate Law Judges Robert J. Stenson of
Fremont, O. K. Shelborn of Alma, W. R.
Fulton of Geneva, J 1'. Cosgrave of Lin
coln and H. K. Spafford of Reatrlce.
On Consideration of Methods for Rala'ng
the Standard and Improving the Qualifica
tion of Judges Judges W. R. Fulton of
Geneva, I. W. Kdsim of Red Cloud and J.
B. Skinner of Hebron.
Unable to be present. Judge Leslie of
Onyiha sent as his representative Hon. D.
L. Johnson of that city. Mr. Johnson, who
has made a specialty cf probate practice
and record titles, discussed! these subjects
Instructively. The meeting then resolved
Itself into a sort of round table discus
sion of the many phases of probate prao
tlce susceptible to 4mprovement.
While all agreed upon the Importance of
railing the qualification of Judge, It waa
the sense of the meeting that It would be
both unjust and unwise to limit the selec
tion of Judges to the ranks of regularly ad
mitted and practicing attorneys. It Is well
known that a large number of the most
successful county Judges have acquired
their equipment In the practical school of
experience. Many of these are men of ripe
experltncei and excellent Judgment and
nothing could be gained by depriving the
public, of their service. The county Judges
will ask the. next legislature to limit the
election cf candidate for that office to
one of two classes. To be eligible, the can
didate must be a lawyer, or ono who ha
occupied the position of county Judge. It
may- necessary to exempt from the pro
visions of this proposed measure the few
sparsely settled counties in the western
part of the state, where no attorney has
U, .-11 tod. Many Judges mentioned the dif
ficulty they experienced In construing wills
carelessly and ignorantly drawn by men
totally unlearned In legal phraseology.
There are still said to be a few Judges In
the state who habitually violate the statute
prohibiting them from practicing as at
torneys In their own courts. There are
also said to be a number of others who
permit the filing of pupers not drawn by
those who are legally qualified to prepare
tfiem. The Judges loanlfested general In
terest In the revision of our fee system,
Which they characterized as vague, in
definite, uncertain and altogether unsatis
factory. In some instances they are almost
comiellel to guess at some of the Items,
and if a mistake Is made, they are liable
to pay a heavy fine and. furthermore, to
be reviled, persecuted and despKefully
At 2 o'clock In the afternoon of Tuesday,
November IT, Hift, ihe county Judges will
meet In adjourned sessioii at the Lindell
hotel at Lincoln, Neb., at which time it
hoped that every county Judge in the slate
will bo present.

contrary to their wishes. The matter has
received a reconsideration at the hands
of the church members and they Imve
voted not to accept the resignation nf Rev

tended the pastor a call for another year's
service. It Va quite probable Rev. Mr.
Sturdevant will accept.
