TRANSACTIONS

OF THE

TWENTY-THIRD ANNUAL MEETING

OF THE

American Bar Association,

HELD AT

SARATOGA SPRINGS, NEW YORK,

AUGUST 29, 30 AND 31, 1900.

Wednesday, August 29, 1900, 10.30 A. M. The Twenty-third Annual Meeting of the American Bar Association convened in the ball room of the Grand Union Hotel, Saratoga Springs, on Wednesday, August 29, 1900, at 10.30 A. M.

The meeting was called to order by U. M. Rose, of Arkansas, a member of the Executive Committee, who introduced Charles F. Manderson, of Nebraska, the President of the Association.

Charles F. Manderson, the President of the Association, then took the chair and delivered the President's Address.

(See the Appendir.) James B. Thayer, of Massachusetts :

Mr. President, in the Address of the President some remarks were made with reference to Lord Russell of Killowen, and the hope was expressed, Mr. President, that the Association might take some action touching his death. I should like, sir, to make a motion that a minute on that subject be entered upon the records of the Association, and I will read the minute that I propose :

The American Bar Association has heard with peculiar sorrow of the death of Lord Russell of Killowen, Lord Chief Justice of England, and desires to enter upon its records some permanent expression of honor and esteem for his memory.

The members of this Association had followed and known well that brilliant career which made Sir Charles Russell the conspicuous and admired leader of the English Bar, and they had rejoiced at the elevation of one so competent to the great office which he held with such distinction at the time of his death. Four years ago we welcomed him here as our chief guest. Recalling now the noble address which he delivered to us on the 30th of August, 1896, and the deep-felt enthusiasm inspired in the hearts of all who listened to him, the members of this Association record their admiration for the manner in which he has filled his high office, their grateful recollection of his visit here, their affectionate regard for his memory, and their respectful sympathy with the Bench and Bar of England in so great a loss to our common profession.

Edward F. Bullard, of New York:

Mr. President, I second the adoption of the minute proposed to the memory of Lord Russell.

The minute was unanimously adopted by a rising vote.
New members were then elected.

(See List of New Members.) The list of delegates from State Bar Associations accredited to this meeting was then read by the Secretary.

(See List of Delegates.) The President:

The next business in order is the election of the General Council.

A recess of ten minutes was then taken, after which the General Council was elected.

(See List of Officers at end of Minutes.) The President: Next in order is the report of the Secretary. John Hinkley, of Maryland, Secretary, read his report.

The President:
The report will be received and placed on file.

(See the Report at end of Minutes.)
The President:
We will next hear the report of the Treasurer.

Francis Rawle, of Pennsylvania, Treasurer, read his report.

The President:

This report will be received, and referred to the following Auditing Committee : William L. January, of Michigan, and Thomas H. Robinson, of Maryland.

(See the Report at end of Minutes.) The President: Next in order is the report of the Executive Committee.

The report of the Executive Committee was read by the Secretary.

The President:
The report will be received and placed on file.

(See the Report at end of Minutes.)
The President:
I appoint the following Reception Committee :
Walter S. Logan, of New York.
Godfrey Morse, of Massachusetts.
Henry Stockbridge, of Maryland.
J. Alston Cabell, of Virginia.
David L. Withington, of California.
Clarence A. Lightner, of Michigan.
Henry Budd, of Pennsylvania.

I will ask the members of this committee to meet with the Chairman at as early a moment as possible, and take whatever measures may seem to them best fitted for the entertainment of ourselves, more particularly, and any guests that there may be of the Association.

That closes the order of business for the morning.
A recess was then taken to 8 o'clock P. M.
