Judge 'Wallace, who was tendered the
thanks of the association tor his ad?

Judge S. C. Graham, of Tazewvll. pre
scnted the report of the enmmlitee to
recommend officers, saying that the
committee found some good presiden?
tial limber In Tidewater and in the uni?
versities, but finally landed a High?
lander. While not dupobed to criticize
the law schools. Judge S. O. Graham:
noted that only three law professors
were in attendance at the session of
the association; these three being from
the "Oxford of America, the University
of Virginia." Judge Grabni. thought
that the professors of Virginia law
schools should attend the session of
the association.
Officers Fleeted.
The officers nominated were unani?
mously ..lected. They were:
President, J. P. Buliltt, of Big Stone
Gap; Vice-Presldents?A. R. Long, ot
Lynchburg, to represent Piedmont Vir?
ginia; J. S. Harnsberger. of Harrison
burg, to represent the Valley section;
E. Chambers Goonc. of Mecklenburg
county, to represent Southsidc Virginia;
A. S. Higginhntham. of Tazewell, to]
represent the Southwestern section;
Hugh W. Davis, of Norfolk, to repre?
sent Tidewater Virginia.
Two new members of the executive
committee were elected to succeed Hill
Montague and George W. Ort gory, both
of Richmond;* whose terms have ex?
pired. Their successors are George
Bryan and J. J. Loake, both of Rich?
mond. John L. Minor was re-elected
secretary and treasurer.
The following delegates to the Amer?

Judge L. L. Lewis, of'Richmond: Sam?
uel Griffin, of Bedford City: Thomas Wj
Shelton. of Norfolk; Professor R. C.
Minor, of the University of Virginia,
and James H. Corbl.t. of Suffolk.
There was considerable debate over
the expert testimony resolution and
other measures, in which it was gen?
erally agreed that law reform is abso?
lutely essential now. ??
Rosewell Page, of Hanover, who Is
taking a prominent part In the pro?
ceedings, pointed out In the course of
discussion that there often Is practi?
cal Justification for the refusal of the
General Assembly .to adopt recom?
mendations of the Rar Association.
He referred to the Virginia House
Committee on the Judiciary as com?
posed of men "supposed to be law?
yers?at any rate, licensed to prac?
tice and admitted to the bar."
This characteristic allusion brought
down the house. Mr. Page, in defense
of the position of members of the
General Assembly, explained that he
sometimes voted for n measure in the
association and against it in the Leg?
islature because of valid obstacles It
was so In the caso of the proposed
revision of the Code. He voted for it
in the association, but when It ap?
peared that the Stale did not have the
$50.000 necessary for this work he
voted against It.
Abolition of Juries.
Tn the night session Waltor H. Tay?
lor, of Norfolk, one of the younger
members of tho bar. delivered a brief
but able address on "The Abolition
of Jury Trials In Civil Cases."
An Increasing number of practition?
ers, bo said, nro being converted ro
the Idcn that In civil cases It Is best
to do away with the Jury, 'in soveral
branches of the law?admiralty, con?
demnation and others?no Jury Is had.
"No reason can be advanced why
Juries should determine the facts In
common law cases," he said.
Mr. Taylor would substitute for a
Jury three Judges Nowadays, he said.
Juries too often misunderstand the
law. Judges are morn Insensible to
prejudices and passions.
Juries. Mr. Taylor declared, too of?
ten decide a enso on account of a
charming woman, saying: "Not lon??
ago I was consulted by a transportation
company as to Its Unblltty to a prettv
girl, who had badly sprained her an?
gln while a passenger on the prom?
ises of the company. The company's
officials contended that he step, on
which the girl's nnkle was sprained,
was not nr.|tltr*cntly constructed, njid
t lint under the? law, as they under?
stood It, the company wns not llnblo
I told them that it was not a question
of lcRf.l theory, hut ono of practical
conditions. If tho case got to tho
Jury, nnd I could see no way to prevent
It, the girl would get a verdict, and
the prettier feho was, the larger tho
verdict would be. 1 don't believe any
lawyer, with experience with Jury
trials, will question the soundness of
my vlows In that case."
Mr. Taylor advanced many reasons
for his thesis, placing upon It the limi?
tation, however, that the abolition of
the jury Bystem Is safe only whom tho
Judiciary Is Independent.
To Level of Baseball empires.
"If tho new and dangerous decline
of recall Is to find favor with our peo?
ple," he said, "and is to bo extended,
under specious pleas or demagogical
argument to the Judiciary, then tho
Judges will bo reduced to the leved
of base bull umpires, to be howelcd and
pelted bv the excited and unthinking
moh. *
"Then no man of any sensibility, un?
less driven by financial embarrass?
ment, will consent to occupy the posi?
tion, ana then the jury will be the
bulwark against the aggressions and
irresponsibility of the rabble a6 It has
been. In time past, tho bulwark
against the aggressions and tyranny
of the crown."
The speakers at tho banquet to?
night were Judge R. R. Prentice, of
the State Bar Association; Professor
A. M. Doblc. of the University of Vir?
ginia; John S. Wise, of the New York
Bar. and Judge Charles F. Moore, of
the New York Bar. The retiring pres?

John Marshall House Report.
The report of the committee on the
John Marshall house was presented
by Hill Montague, who, with John
B. Minor successfully defended the
proposition to appropriate $1,000 to
the Virginia Asuoclat'on for the Pres?
ervation of Virginia Antiquities with?
out any string to the gift. Judge
Graham, of Tazewell, was Inclined to
the view that the association should
have some legal Interest In the house,
but was cut off by a parliamentary
motion.
At the afternoon session R. S. P.
Patteson. of Richmond, offered a reso?
lution amending the code so as to
make negligence a conclusion 01 'aw
from facts properly proved Instead
of from facts pleaded in a peculiar
