Judicial reforms to speed up Justice and
reduce tho cost bills is promised by sen
ators before congress adjourned. The
house has alteady agreed to the reform
measures and they have bceif favorably
reported to tho senate by the Judiciary
committee. Flare rrel3ent Wilson's
siwecb at Indianapolis referring to Judi
cial procedure in the United States as
being behind ev-.-ry. other civilised coun
try, democratic senators predict the bills
will pan the senate without debate.
The reforms aim to restrict the number
of cases which nisy reach the supreme
court with a view of enabling that court
to keep abreast with current business and
to simplify procedure in the federal dls
trlct courts and the circuit courts of ap
peals. All these were initiated by the
American liar association.
Chief Justice White entertains an ambi
tion to have the supreme court clear up
its docket each year before adjourning
for the summer. Tho court has volun
tarily lengthened Ita session, but cases
have been piling up on the court faster
tha-i it . could deride them. The bills
Would further the chief Justice's plan by
restricting the avenues of getting to the
lUaay Porto Hlraa t ears.
Probably more cases have come to the
supreme court each year from Porto
Klco then front all New England com
bined. The bills would substitute for the
right of appeal to tho supreme court from
tho federal dlstilet in Porto Rico the
right of appeal to tho circuit court of
appeals in New England.
The bills would also restrict the Porto
Rlcan cases before the court by provid
ing that cases of local or federal law
decided by t'ia Porto Rlcan supreme
court cannot he brought to the supreme
court unless the latter first gives per
mission. At present all such cases, as
well as those involving federal questions,
may be appealed to the t'nlted States
supreme court. The iamo limitation would
be placed on cases from the Hawaiian
supreme court. Members of the Honelulvi
bar have asked time to forward an objec
tion to this reform.
Decisions of circuit court of appeals in
all trade mark and bankruptcy cases
would be final, exoept where the supreme
court grants permission for such 'cases
to be brought, to It for review. Railroad
cori 'orations' with a federal charter would
not be able to appeal-to the court merely
because it was a federal corporation.

Some 9egaested Reforms.
Among reforms in the lower federal
courts would be these:
