LAWYERS OF WISCONSIN t Annual Meeting of the State Bar Association Held in Wausau at the Court House. A goodly number of lawyers from various parts of the state came to Wausau on Wednesday to attend the annual meeting of the Wisconsin Bar association. Many members and their wives were entertained at the homes of our at torneys. There were social gatherings and on Thursday evening the members of the Marathon County Bar association tendered a banquet, reception and dancing party to the visitors at the Rotlischild pavilion. Our citizens generally were invited to the reception and party The open ing exercises commenced on Wednes day evening at 8 o’clock in the court room of our county building. This hour was ushered in by a terrific electrical storm, which no doubt, kept many from attending. The meeting was a great success from every point of view and one promin ent visitor was heard to say at the close by a Pilot reporter: the best and most successful meeting ever held by the Wisconsin Bar asso ciation and I believe that it is the starting point from w hich the associa tion will grow and become what it was originally designed to be, of great benefit to the iawyers of Wis consin.” On Wednesday evening the meet ing was called to order by C. B. Bird, of this city, in the absence of Presi dent John M. Olin of Madison, who was unable to be present on account of illness. Mr. Bird after the pre liminaries addressed the meeting up on tire popular prejudices against the profession of law. Mr. Bird said in part: “One basic fact is true. Litigation today is so expensive that in the over whelming majority of cases, w hether the parties be rich or poor, the at tendant expense of submitting thetV disputes to judicial decision is more than the amountat stake will justify. Courts of concilliation at present seem only clubs to compel compro mises. They will not be a remedy unless they can be instruments of ac curate judicial decision according to fundamental law. “Arbitration has proven a delusion and a snare. Our highly organized civilization should, if possible, give every man his rights judicially ascer tained, without undue or prohibitory expense. That this does not now re sult may perhaps be the unconscious basis of the prejudice against the law yers who are falsely, but popularly, supposed to be fattening themselves by maintaining thiscondition. I will not presume on my presence here in an unofficial capacity to discuss this matter, except to suggest that it is a tit subject for the efficient attention of this association. “Mr. Olin intended discussing the growing tendency to seek relief from constitutional limitations, or at least from the tinality of judicial interpreta- Removal Notice AARON’S STYLE SHOP Ladies' Tailoring and Dressmaking Moved to 320 THIRD ST.

Intending to follow ids plan t found one phase of the general subject w hich seems the basis of some caiticism of our plan of government imposing upon the courts the duty to determine the validity of legislative labors sufficiently brod to be made the sole basis of this discussion.” The main part of the address dealt with the question, thus stated by him, “How shall the court determine a question general fact, sociological or otherwise, upon which the validity of a statute depends ?” Mr. Bird read a number of court de cisions, showing that in such cases courts discarded expert evidence, and even the verdict of juries, and ascer tained from the general body of in formation. the facts in question. For example, if a statute be passed regulating underground mining, on the theory that such work is more dangerous than work performed on the surface of the earth, the validity of the statute may depend upon whether, as a matter of fact, such work is more dangerous But, in such a case, the court will not take the opinion of witnesses or tindings of a jury to ascertain the fact, but will make a broad survey of the tield of knowledge pertaining to the sub ject, and determine, by judicial cog nizance, that undeground mining is more dangerous than common labor above ground. WEDNESDAY C. B. Bird called the meeting to order and announced temporary offic ers agreed upon by the committee as follows: Chairman— G. D. Jones, Wausau. Sec’y-G. E. Morton, Milwaukee. Treas.—K. L. Malloy, Milwaukee. Mr. Jones upon taking the chair, stated that Judge Joseph Donnelly, of Milwaukee, who was on the pro gram for the morning address had been detained at home on account of illness. The address, however, was read by his son, Emmet Donnelly. He advocated courts of general jur isdiction in place of the present sys tem. He said: “The taxpayers would be saved at least 11,000,000 each year if the justice, municipal, district and circuit court, were abolished and a court of general jurisdiction to try both civil and criminal cases were substituted. “it would lessen the number of ap peals and diminish the number of judges one-half. It would end the ever-increasing cry that there is one court for the nch and another for the poor. Tliis address was followed by J ustice John Barnes of the state supreme court. Justice Barnes thought that the legal profession as a force in gov ernment is declining. He vigorously denounced the judicial recall, saying: “A present day fad, which 1 person ally regard as vicious, is the recall of judicial decisions, if the 400.000 vot ers of Wisconsin are to vote to recall judicial decis. jns they should at least be required to read and understand the decision upon which they are to act as a court of last resort. This would be expecting a great deal—too much, I fear, even from the legal pro fession. 1 greatly fear the average citizen would feel inclined to take to the woods to escape studying the de cisions which occasion the greatest amount of comment and adverse criticism. To me the proposition looks as absurd and weird as it would be to try our ordinary lawsuits at town meeting. “The initiative is another remedy for which much is claimed, and from which I think little of good can be expected. “1 welcome the advent of the col lege man and the expert into our Wa usa uWm Pilot. political life. The composite result obtained from the amalgamation of different views ought to be a pretty correct one.” Many doctrinaries and reformers, he said, think our constitutions are arch aic and would substitute a pure dem ocracy for a representative democ racy. He said: “Wisconsin is rapidly approaching a commission form of government The tendency is to extend rather than to curtail the movement and to carry the principal into local government as well as to the state at large. I ser iously doubt if our circuit and su preme courts in the course of a year deal with matters which involve as much in the aggregate as do the de cisions of the railroad commission alone. We have in addition the tax commission, the industrial commis sion, the state board of control and dozens of other bodies. The legisla tive reference bureau should not be forgotten. It has exercised a power ful influence in shaping our legisla tion in recent years. It is well nigh impossible to carry any measure through the legislature against the acti v e opposition of strong com mission. It is practically as difficult to defeat any measure advocated by such a body. “The masses have no voice in the selection of these officers. They are all appointed for long terms. It may seem incongruous that those who assert that the people have the ability and intelligence to govern themselves, as in a pure democracy, and. to initi ate laws and to pass on legislative acts by referendum vote and to recall officers however chosen, should in practice deny them the privilege of selecting their own most important agents.” He favored the commission idea and its extension, trying the experiment in our small political units. He said: “Excluding the cities of Madison and Stoughton we have 750 school officers and 500 tow n and village officers, be sides the usual complement of county officers in Dane county. It is not improbable that a single ordinary sized commission could do the work better than it is being done. Our city governments are as near to the people as any we have. Vet, unless the popular conception is wrong, there is more corruption and imbecility in the administration of our city affairs than anywhere else.” in the afternoon, Andrew Alexan der Bruce, justice of the supreme court of North Dakota, addressed the mealing of the subject of his address being “The Call of Today.” “Cicero, in hiscommenlaries, stated that true law is right reason con formable to nature, universal, un changeable, eternal whose commands urge us to duty and whose prohibi tions restrain us from evil,” he said. “Whether it enjoins or prohibits, the good respect its injunctiot sand the wicked treat them with indiffer ence. This law cannot be contra dicted by any other law, and is not liable to derogation or abrogation. Neither the senate nor the people can give us any dispensation for not obeying tliis universal law of justice. It needs no other expositor and in terpreter than our own conscience. “It is not one thing in Rome and another at Athens—one thing today and another tomorrow, but -in ad times and nations tliis universal law must forever reign eternal and im perishable. It is the sovereign mas ter and moderator of all beings. All men is its author, its promulgator, its enforces, and lie who does not obey its flies from himself and does violence to the very nature of men, and by so doing he will endure the severest penalties, even if lie avoid the other evils which are usually ac counted punishment. “Theoretically Cicero was right. He spoke, however, of the ideal law, and not of any system that man has yet promulgated. He spoke of the law of conscience, ratiier than of the law which was, or could be, enforced by the edicts of man. We never have had, and perhaps never will have tliis true law. lam bold enough to say that, we will hardly have it even if the time comes that there shall be a pure democracy, for there is a tyran ny and an ignorance and a selfishness oil the part of the multitude as well as on the part of the few. “Universal justice means a univer sal conscience, a conscience, a univer sal Christianity in the highest sense of the term, and this is perhaps far off. The hinderance is to be found in the greed of the average man. It is also impossible to disseminate the truth. How can our legislatures who meet together for but a few weeks and come to our legislative balls absolutely ignorant of the great struggle of the race and of the great body of the law which they are seeking to change, remedy and reform, acquire know ledge sufficient for the purpose? They must necessarily at times, even though with the purest motives, leg islate for classes and overthrow rules which are founded upon centuries of experience and centuries of heroic martyrdom! “It costs today $9,500 to send a single letter to every voter in Wis consin. If woman’s suffrage comes among us it will cost $19,000. Ilow can we disseminate a knowledge of the facts and of history, economic and sociology which will make our law universally beneficent and uni versally just. eVen though the people vote upon that law themselvesV “So. too. it is well for us to remem her that we are all ‘miserable sinners’ and that we are all tainted with the stain of selfishness. Not only indi viduals, but localities have been jeal ous of one another since the world be gan. The democracies of the middle ages were sordidly selfish when it came to the rights of other democ racies and of other towns. “I am often ashamed of the history of our courts and of the history of the lawyer. I am, however, equally ashamed of the history of the legisla tor and of democracy. To be candid with you. 1 am not proud of my an cestors. Our past has been too much a past, of selfishness and of barbarism. It is only recently that we have be gun to catch even a glimpse of the real meaning of Christianity, and to understand in any measure the social and economic message of the Great Teacher of Men." .1 ustice RrtTCe made an eloquent de fense of the courts and the lawyers, although he said he he did not hold a brief for either, stating that they have reflected the dominent thought* of the nation. He reviewed the pro gress that has been made towards the ideal law and said: • We will make the sacrifice to pre serve that which has been won. I know it, for back of our civilization are ihe martyrs and the heroes and the prophets of every nation, of every age and of every clime. Hack of us is the scaffold and the gibbet and the tire swept trenches. Back of us is the Great Prophet of Men, the Great Democrat of the ages, the Maker of WAIJSALI, Wls., rUESPAY, JULY 1, 1913. the new law and of tht new dispensa tion who made His choice upon the mountain crest alone. Before Him lay stretched in all their grandeur the citadels of the world, the busy marts of trade, the rich argosies, the rolling plains, the wooded uplands the (xmqueror's road and the accla mation of millions. Before Him also lay the lonely path of duty leading to Gethesemine and to the cross at Calvary. He saw them all but He chose the latter. He lost the whole world, but he saved His own soul.” “Predatory wealth can lie made social. The heroism of war can be made universal in the time of p'feace. There can be heroes at the bar and in the marts of trade as well as upon the decks of the Titanic. The self respect, the individual selfishness which scorns to degrade itself, by taking the place of women in a life boat can and will show itself in the every day battle of life.” It was voted to hold the next an nual meeting of the association in Green Bay.

A Company Great in Its Personal As Well as in the Programs It Renders The Apollo Concert company will open the Chautauqua on Sunday afternoon July 6 and will play pre ludes afternoon and evening on Sun day, a prelude on Monday afternoon and close with a full concert on Mon day evening, J uly 7. Tiie A polios now have their new Gold Saxaphones and they are beyond a doubt the finest quartet of Saxa phones ever built in tliis country or abroad. These instruments were made by Buescher Band Instrument Cos. of Elkhart, Ind., of ISK gold with keys inlaid with mother-of-pearl. The engraving was done by Gardners who is considered the world’s greatest engfAver, and his time slip turned in at the factory showed that it took him just one hundred hours to each instrument. The instruments were made espec ially for the A polios, and to he used for exhibition purposes. The manu facturers expect to have the A polios play in their exhibit at the San Fran cisco Exhibition during the entire season and they w ill use this set of Saxaphones. In none of the musical instrument exhibits of the past have there been any instruments that could compare with these. They also have anew Cornet and Trombone of the same finish as the Saxaphone. The Apollos are putting in anew instrument which they call the Apoliophone, to take the place of the Bells which they are going to discon tinue. It was designed and perfected by themselves and built by a noted firm of instrument makers. It is six teen feet in length and played by the entire company. The instrument be longs to the Marimba and Xylophone family and there is no music too difficult for it when in the hands of capable performers. The Marimba is one of the very oldest musical instruments. Before the fifteenth century, the natives of South Africa built an instrument of bamboo and were able to get wonder ful musical results from it. But the tone was very soft and had not suffi cient volume to make it effective. So the modern Xylophone carne into more general use as it has great volume of tone and wonderful possi bilities of technique, but has not the soft, sweet, harp-like tone of the Marimba. Now the Apollos have been plan ding and experimenting for t lie past few years to perfect an instrument along these lines that would incor porate all the good qualities of both the Marimba and the Xylophone and also eliminate all the inferior points, and the Apoliophone is the result of their efforts. BIG CELEBRATIONS ELSE WHERE. Just think of it, extensive Fourth of July celebrations at Antigo, Stev ens Point, Marslilield, Edgar, Athens and Mosinee; in fact to the north, east, west and south of us, there will be great celebrations of the Fourth but none in Wausau absolutely none. Of course there will be music, pic nics, fireworks in tiie evening, and dances to attract and make money but not a single patriotic speech: reading of the declaration of inde pendence. etc., something away from the money-making schemes. It is to be regretted that with so many pa triotic people in Wausau a rousing celebration could not have been bad. Let Someone start the ball to rolling early next year. Wausau should have, in the future, celebrations that will attract from all surrounding towns i ..r.d cities. 1 A Good Investment. W. £> Magli. a well known mer chant of Whitemound.

Tuesday saw one of the fiercest tights of the legislative session over the excise bills which would legalize saloon locations. The Hoyt medical piactice bill was killed in the senate Tuesday by a vote of 11 to 15. The bill was on the calendar with a committee report recommending that it he indefinitely postponed. The Huber bill providing for em ployment of criminals on roads and farms was concurred in by the assem bly on Tuesday. Sheriffs are directed to secure work for persons under pen alty of SIOO if they do not do so. They can put them at work any where in the county under guard. The Judson Hall bill providing a commission form of government for counties passed by the assembly, was non concurred in by the senate Wednesday night. A motion to re consider tiie adverse vote was lost, so the bill cannot be revived. The play of factional politics in the senate and the almost intermin able debates gives rise to seem likely to keep tiie legislature in ses sion until August. Gov. McGovern 'lnursday night sent to assembly and senate a message vetoing the Bowe bill, providing for the appointment of a board of uni versity visitors and for the regulation of its proceedings. The new waterpower bill which will be introduced next week in the legislature, and which will, it is con fidently believed, become a law, will in its main features embody the prin ciples laid down in the Dunbar case by the supreme court of the United States. Tliis is tiie decision of the committee of Senator Husting, Boss hard and Tomkins, who have returned from Washington. They went to Washington to consult ex perts concerning tiie framing of an effective bill.

Both of the measures relate to the reduction of grades and the grade crossing problem which Is acknowledged to be the most important question facing the railway people at this time, and both greatly extend the powers of the commission as to the work it can do toward obtaining a reduction of grades. The assembly on Wednesday killed the K. A. Johnson resolution wiping out the state fair and establishing an exposition at Madison in connection with the University of Wisconsin. The Hinkle bill, which was to en able persons nominated by two parties for the same ortlee to have their names placed on each of the tickets, was laid over in the assembly until today. The plan to take a long adjourn ment over tire fourth of July went in the air Wednesday morning. When the assemblymen favoring the adjourn ment had time to think it over they realized the people of the state would not stand for any such recess. It is probable the legislature will adjourn next Wednesday or Thursday to the Tuesday following.
