mirably calculated, 83 far as it goes, to

in this report your committee does
not claim to have originated,
but tbey mutt inevitably
have suggested themselves to every
practitioner in our couits, and mcst of
them were atrongly nrgrd upon the
attsnt'on of the aesoriation, at our

pated, in a paper prepared by Mr. w
S. Flippio. and read at our annual
meetiug of 1884, but which was alEO
omitted in the repoit ot that year,
The changes herein proposed, and
which your committee urge upon the
consideration of the es'ouation, have
the groat merit that tbey do not re
ouire any amendment to the State Con'
Dtilu'ion. They are within the power
of tbe General At sembly to effect, and
there can be no good reason given lor
the practice o! instiing a summons in
a civil cause months perhaps beiore
the term of c-uit commence', wailing
for the three first day of court before
filing a CcclarEtion, and two days mote
lor tne deiendant to pit ad or demur,
THK AI'PEAhiBCB TERM
should in mot cases be the t'ial term,
as it is in the United btates Courts, in
some circuity and, perhap, all. If
summons asd copy of dtcaratioo are
served upon defendant twenty days
before the first day of tbe term, the
cause stands tortrml at that term. e
would supgest that tbe State practico
in this rtspect ba made t conform to
the federal. The defendant 8 attor
ney by tbis praciico will have ample
time to rareiully examine the declara
tion and determine whether to plead
or demur. As it now i?, tbe declara

likely be no tea ion to ask the
Conrc to amid. As a rale, the

Thera is no go d icaton why tue offi

principal cause of contention is, who

to pay bis cos's ia tt e end, unless he
recover a jiic'gmtnt, and the money

he makes tne money on nie judgment,
he recovers the ro ts ha fu-s paid.
Jobn Randolph s id he had found the

They not inf'equont'y require quite
as much of the t me of tue Court to

ovtrlrad the dockets of the court and

praitics in this re pect should be
m8tlrs to correspond in degree with
tbeFedera1, and lo appeal should bo

This is a direct incentive to dishon

crowded condi'ion cf the dockets of

Ia all cas s t ie aopelUnt should be

Theprovsioj in te act of 1827

The law should oflVr no inducement

7. Intimately corncted with th
f reg- intr is the effect of appeals f torn

respect, a'si"", ilio State pract'ee should
be ma-le to conform to the Federa'.
An appeal ehnuld operate as a f uir

cou -t below, conditioned for tbe prose
cution of the app'al with effect, or in
case of failure, for the payment or per
formance c-f the judgment or dec ee of
the Supreme Court.
Many of the Stales of the Union have
statutes containing provisions of this
kind, and their provisions are made to
cover certain clatsts of criminal cases
as well ts civil.
8. All briefs in tbe Supreme Couit
Bhould be printed. It is barbarous to
require tbe judges of that court to
consume most valuable time in ponring
over the execrable handwriting of the
gre t m -j rity of ;awyers
A printed "brief can, as a Mile, be
rr'att hi one-'omtli the time a wiiiten
one can, and a clearer understanding
be oh ained of i s contents. The cot-t
ofprin'irgia but a trille, and no liti

adviinnze gained w. u d bs that
brief?, as a i ule, nculd be nnra cara-
fu'ly p'eorerl if they were require.!
to ba printed.
If thess recommendat'ons, with
those of our predecessors of last year,
could b-como parts of the civil pro
cedure of Tennessee by tbo neces-eary
lejitlatioD, your committee is of the
opinion that fewer judges would be
raquired, tbe over crowded dockets
would be e'eared, lawyers would get
their fofs without yeara of weary
waiting, the ends of good government
would be subserved, and the "law's
delay." which is the "law's icproach,"
would be in a good degree obvia'ed.
All of which is respectfully sub
mitted. XKN. WHKEI.KR.

of future reference end a more perfect
preservation of the recoids ot the

oue to tha different H ate Bar Associa
tions of the United States.

on Publication, io deciding what pa

Vlllof the bylaws, and to th e end

determining what papers and how
much of each, read Were tli9 A'so

3. 'J hat those who read papenbe

after sieh piib!ict'.on, supply tbo

rected c py of ihe paper containing
their arthde or addrers. Thiabuggis
tiiin is cal'ed forth by reason ol the
fait that thi uiann.ctipts cf papers
read before the association have in
several instances in the pat been lost
or destroyed by tbe newspaper pub
lishers, which, added to tbe failure
fonietimea cn tbe part of tbe authors
of taid manuscr pts to preserve a copy
