CHICAGO May 26 26Judge Judge Alton AUonB B
Parker of New York was the principal
speaker at the annual meeting meetin g today
of the Illinois State Bar Association
His speech covered a wide range The
title The Lawyer in Public Affairs
gave gav him opportunity for reviewing what
the noted men of the profession had
done from the founding of Ofthe the Republic Re public
He dwelt upon the th unusual opportuni ¬
ties which were open to the man well
versed in law and the dependence plac ¬
ed upon such men by their fellows in
every eve emergency
A point greatly emphasized empob lzed was the
fact that men of utmost partisanshln
as lawyers became absolutely unbiased
as a iu iud iudres < i res es He cited noteworthy in ¬
stances to confirm this view and said
that in his own somewh extended extende
judicial experience he had never known 1
a Judge to be moved by personal r sonal rea ¬
sons 01 by attachment to a political
Which Was Roosevelt
Interest in the speakers remarks in ¬
creased as ho began a reference to the
Chief Executive of 0 the nation nat1 < ll There
was some curiosity curiosit > to hcus hC < l what the
late Democratic candidate would ould say
about President Roosevelt Roo evelt His com ¬
ment was Indefinite He said s lid < that of
the twentyfour Presidents of the
United States who have followed George

whether by election or succession one

more or less prolonged and more or less
distinguished eighteen had devoted
themselves exclusively to the study and
practice racUce of the law and another had di ¬
vided Ided his activities between the bar and I
the bench with an incidental or rather
an accidental diversion into the career
of the soldier If the same process were
I applied to the men who have been pre ¬
ferred by b their party temporarily in the
II I minority at succeeding succeed succeeding partYr r ng Presidential elec dcc ¬
tions the same general tendency to
draw upon the legal profession for the
higher places of our politics would be
none the less apparent
Judge Parker Parl er declared that if upon a
given givt > n day da the President Presi nt of the United
States s should receive the resignation of
every judge of all the Federal courts
of every member of his Cabinet and all ali
other of officials ficials the performance of whose j
duties required a legal training he could
nil their places with full regard to the
interests of the public service serviceS S and with
popular acceptance without drawing a
single annointee from any one of the
great centers of population

Yangtse river r iyer
The ThQG German rman squadron at Tslngtau fa

The appearance < of Admiral Rogest
ensky at Woqsung is a great surprise
as he was generally gene raIl believed to be in
the Pacific ocean o ean Woosung Voosun Is com ¬
paratively Pa rative lYC close lose to Masampo l Ias am po where whereit it it
is reported Togo has had his base for
at least a week
In Incoming coming to toW Woosung osung it is believed
Rogestvensky 1st 1 seeking his adversary
and is prepared to offer him battle at at
the earliest possible moment
Togo log Is Well Informed
There is little doubt that Togo has
been eenkeptwel1 kept well informed of Rogestven
skys movements movem ents This explains why ha b
has held his present base He Is doubt doup
Jess prepared and will strike blow for
blow 110w if Rogestvensky Rog Rogestvens stvensh kY dares an attack
The daring of the Russian admiral in =
sailing directly direc tly into Japanese waters
leaves l aves little littI doubt that the long expect ¬
ed battle will be fought foughtb before foremany many
days perhaps even within a few ow hours
Rogestvensky was reported some time tln
ago as saying that his trip to the Far
East was was for the purpose of meeting
Togo and the battle would for him mean
either victory or death His actions
would vou l l seem seemto to show that he hC1leant meant what
he h said at that time
The Thefirst first of the Russian vessels vesseisap ap ¬
peared peare d in the neighborhood of Woosung
last 1jtf1 night nightWben wheit five volunteer cruisers
With colliers CDmergappear appeared at the tltemouthOt mouth ot
the iheYangts Yangtse river li r A cruiser accom accon ¬
panied the volunteer volunteerfieet fleet r and and it subse ¬
quently disappeared
Whole Fleet Flee t Appears
The balance of the fleet fieetmade made Its ap ¬
pearance suddenly sudden today
Little significance was attached at < t
first to the appearance of the volunteer
fleet It was was thought at the most th thn
ve ensels sels had been sent to a a port to obtal
information if possible in regard J
the whereabouts of the Japanese fioct fie ii > t
In the light of the tbedevelopments developments of t
day however howe v vr r it it can be seen that H
gestvensky gestenskyeVidently evidently had planned mali nai
ing inn for Woosung for some time
Immense ImmensequantlUes quantities of supplies have
been received r ceived at Woosune in the last
few weeks These it is now known aro
for the Russians This shows the care care
with which Rogestvensky Roges ensh has planned
his 1mm movements
Rogestvensky may delay at Woosuns
to take aboard the supplies and to coal
his vessels If he does this thisit it will re ¬
quire several days In that event the
battle will be e delayed
On the other hand hand Jfthe if the Russian
commander puts to sea again immedi
ately the meeting of the th fleets can
hardly be delayed unless Togo purpose ¬
ly ly1eeps II keeps out or the th way of oftime the Russians

In resigning the thd thdpl1cemen policemen have not

to risk dying of starvation in case Case they t hey
cannot get other work rather than
tnke the chances of assassination at

They believe it means certain death
to continue to hold 101d their positions
In addition to the large number who

per cent of the policemen have been
dismissed for various reasons The gen ¬
eral belief is that their loyalty to the
government was doubted
The vacancies caused by these re re ¬
