Special to the Herald
Seattle Wash Aug 25 The thir
tyfirst annual meeting of the Ameri
can Bar Association was opened in
Oils city today and will conUnue until
Triday concluding Friday night with
the annual banquet at tiie New Wash
ington Hotel Between Oiree and
lour hundred members of the associa
tion and invited guests were present
at the opening A feature of Oie at
tendance was the large number of
disUnguished Canadian jurists pres
ent The hall In which the associa
tion met was tastefully decorated for
the occasion
The Session opened with addresses
of welcome delivered on behalf of the
state of Washington and city of Se
attle The exchange of greetings was
followed by the address of Uie presi
dent J M Dickinson of Chicago who
took as his subject Changes in Stat
ute Law The remainder of the ses

ment ot the usual committees and
oOier business of a routine character
For tonights session tiie program
includes a paper on National Pro
gression and the Increasing Responsi
bilities of Our National Judiciary to
be presented by Judge C H Hanford
of Oie TJnited States district court
and an address by Edgar H Fafrar

terpretation
Tomorrow morning former United

row evening Frederick Bausman of

SANTA FE SYSTEM
Proving For Future Railroad
Timber Is Getting Scarce
SBKeSFSBae
Iowa and Karl von Lewlnski an emi
nent German lawyer
One of the most Important matters
which will be considered at the meet
ings will be the report of the special
committee appointed by the conven
tion at PorUand last year to suggest
remedies and draft proposed laws to
prevent delay and unnecessary cost in
litigation This report which un
doubtedly will be followed by a long
and lively discussion opens with a
statement that the existing evil which
seems most serious to the committee
is the disposition in many jurisdic
tions to dispose of appeals or writs or
error both in civil and criminal
cases upon technical grounds and
not to decide them upon the merits
The unrestricted right to a writ of
error m criminal cases is character
ized by the committee as a flagrant
abuse in judicial procedure These
writs the report adds are constant
ly sued out only for delay The pun
ishment of notorious criminals thus
is constantly being postponed in vio
lation of every principle of justice
This is especially flagrant in the su
ing out of writs of error from the
supreme court otthe United States to
review the decision of the highest
courts of criminal jurisdiction in the
several states We recommend that
no writ of error returnable in crimi
nal cases to the supreme court of
the United States should be allowed
unless a justice ot that court shall
certify that there is probable cause
to believe that the defendant was un
justly convicted
In support of this recommendation
the report of the committee quotes
an address of Andrew T > White In
which he stated that while murders
were increasing rapidly yet the pro
cedure against them was becoming
more and more ineffective and in the
light of recent cases in New York and
elsewhere was seen to be a farce
adding that he favored preventing ap
peals based on mere technical mat
tctsand upon errors of trial judges
In trifling laaUers of procedure and
the like which have nothing to do
with the question of guilt or
cence

Ties
The Santa Fe system Is perfecting
plans for a forest of eucalyptus trees
in San Diego county California from
hich to obtain a steady supply of
vjies A ranch of 8000 acres
been purchased for this purpose
and as a start 600 acres will be plant1 Co will give you your money back
ed It is estimated that in eighteen
years the company will be able to
harvest from six to eight ties to a
tree and keep up tiie harvest there
after continually At present the
Santa Fe system uses about 3000000
ties annually In eighteen years the
company thinks it will be able to ob
tain from its forest 7000000 annually
The growing scarcity of timber suit
able for ties with a resultant increase
in their cost has led eleven roads
Including the Santa Fe to start for
ests Ten roads in the east have al
ready planted in their respective for
est sites thousands of catalpa black
locust red oak pin oak and chestnut
The Santa Fe has selected the
eucalyptus because of its rapid
growth and adaptability to the climate
of California New Mexico and Texas
Eucalyptus ties in Hawaii are said
to last fifteen years East of Albur
