AMERICAN BAR A
Improvement of the Law From W
Popular Criticism Was Key:
WASHINGTON. Ort. 2?.?Improve
mont of the law from within to stem
the present tide of popular criti
cism was tho keynote of the first
day's session of the American Uar
association here.
i'resident Wilson iti his address of
welcome pleaded for tho humanizing
of the law by incorporation of more
Justice and less citations In legal
eases. Former President Taft, speak
ing to the Judges of the country,
fathered for the first time in the
history of the country in formal
meeting, emphasized the necessity
for removing delays in litigation. As
sociate Justice Mclteynolds, of tho
Supreme court, urged the judges to
give more attention to public opin
ion.
At to .ight's session of the bar as
sociation proper, Senator Elthu Hoot.
In spenking of "the laymen's criti
cism of the lawyer." suggested raw-.
yers should apply the rules of evl-.
deuce with more regard to common j
sense, and might well avail them-.
selves of expert assistance. < I
The day's program was concluded j
tonight with a reception In tho Pan-1
American building, at which Chief <
Justice White und associate justces i
of the supreme court were ho3ts. Re
ports or commiltecs and a pilgrim-!
mage to Mount Vernon will feature I
tomorrow's program. j
Before the,Judicial section, former,
President Taft, lu his second speech j
of the day, said ho felt at home, al
though there had been un "interven
ing purgatory" since ho himself was
a judge. Ho told the judges that un
iformity In decisions was (juite as
important as Individual justice.
Mr. Taft suggested that depend
ence on stenographers had led to
much delay In the disposition of
eases. He urged that most cases in
the courts ho disposed of at the end
of arguments.
Justice Mclteynolds, in urging th?
judges to become greater afllnuatlve
forces in the enforcement of the law,
said delays in courts frequently rob
bed cases of the fruits of the decis
ion. As attorney general, the Jus
tlce Bald, he started out with tho
Idea that ho would conduct the gov
ernment's' business as that of a pri
vate client. Ho soon found ho was
mistaken, he declared, apd becamo
convinced tho thing to do was to.
give tho public ft fair Idea of what
ho into..Jed to do and r. judicious no
tion of whs.* success was being at-j
talned as he proceeded. In some
way, ho added, tho Judges glvo to J
tho people an Idea of what they arc.
seeking to accomplish and how they
are succeeding.
"In some Buch way we may turn '
rt.o Udo of opposition to tho judiciary)
of the last ten years," he conolud- '
cd, "and find ourselves once more In
trenched in the confidence of tbe
people." . .
The Judicial section discussed the
part judges might well take In ref
orenco to legislation affecting . the
courts.
Governor Baldwin of Connecticut,
addressed the Comparative Law Bu
reau and Edmund. Wetmore of New.
York, spoke to the'Patent section on
"Some Present Aspects of the Pat
ent Law."
President Wilson in his address
said the world was now "stirred to !
its depths" but that the best cours?
for n nation to pursue was the dls
?ui?fesiui? part. Ho - auucu that the
unsettled world conditions made a
good time for freeing the law from
the dry consideration of cold prece
dents and injecting into' it more of
the viewpoint of- justlco for tho ordi
nary man. _
"Wo stand now In a. peculiar case,"
the president continued. "Our first
thought, I supposo, as lawyers Is of
Intornatlonjal Paw. We know that
we Bee In International law, as It
wore, tho moral processes by which
law itself camo irfeo existence*. I
know that as a lawyer I have' myself
at times ' felt that there was no real
comparison between the law. of a na
tion and the law of nations, because
tho latter lacked tho sanction that
gavo th? "'former strength and valid
ity.. And yet If you look Into the mat
ter morei closely, you will find that
the two havo tho same foundations
and that those foundations are more
evident... and conspicuous In our day
than thejl over havo been before.
Tho opinion of tho world is the mis
tress of 'the world; and the process
es, of international law and tho. Blow
processes4'by which opinion work its
will. ;
"What " impresses mo is tho con
stant thought, that that I* thc\trlbun

you can establish your character, you
can establish your credit.
"What I want to suggest to tills as
sociation is whether we su'llclently
apply these same ideas to the. body
of municipal law which we 3cuk to
administer, i't e changing of law by
statute seems to me like mending a
garment wi'ili _ patch; whereas law
should* grow by the life that lu in it,
not by the life that is outside of it.
I should hate to think that the law
did not derive its irapuhe from look
ing forward rather than from look
ing backward, or rather, that It did
not derive Us Instruction from look
ing about and seeing what the cir
cumstances of man, actually are and
what the impulses of Justice neces
sarily arc. ,
"Understand me, gentlemen, 1 n.m
not venturing in this presence to im
peach the law. But I do wish to
make this intimation, that in this
time of world change, it 1b worth
while looking inside our municipal
law and seeing whether the moral
judgments of mankind are made
square with everyone of the judg
ments of law itself. For I bellve that
we are custodlane, not of eommhnds,
but of a spirit. We arc custodians of
the spirit of righteousness, of the
spirit Of equal-handed Justice, Of the
spirit of hope which believes In the
perfectibility of the law with the
perfectibility of human life Itself.
"You can not go any faster than
you can advance the average moral
Judgments of the mass, and you can
go, at least, ds fast- sb that. I have
dealt wth all sorts and conditions of
men, and I have found that the flame
of moral judgment" burned juat as
bright in the man of humble life add
limited experience as in the schola
and the man of- affairs."

SAD EVENT FOR
LAURENS FAIR
SCORES INJURED, AND SOME
WILL PERHAPS DIE
GRANDSTAND FELL
In Beginning of Program for
County Fair, New Grand
stand Collapsed.
Special to The Intelligencer.
LAURENS, Oct. 20.?The annual
Lnurens county fair came near hav
ing ? tragic end hero today when the
newly erected grandstand holding
soraowhero between five hundred and
a thousand people suddenly collap
sed, precipitating its .precious bur
den to the ground beneath, throwing
tho people In wild confusion and ser
iously injuring scores of people.
At this tlmo, a few hours after the
terrible occurrence, no one has suc
cumbed to injuries, but several of the
hurt arc in a ppscarious condition.
Mrs. Joel Sm'.lu of Waltorloo. Mrs,
Sam Williams of Waterloo, Mrs. J.
R. Ellis of Lnurens, Royes Todd, lit
tle Bon of Mr. I). E. Todd of Barks
dalo Stattion and a little son of Mr.
John Glenn, who lives near tho city,
aro the most seriously injured.
Immediately following the acci
dent wild rumors went over tho city (
Mint there had been a wholesale loss
of life, but these rumors were latori
authentically denied.
Those on the stand, and those who
saw It fall consider It nothing but
miraculous that n great Ifes of life
did not tako place. When the vast
crowd on and around the grandstand
first recovered t\\mi tho Bhock cf
the fall, scores of women and child
ren were seen In and on top of the
! wreckage, many apparently In an in
sensible condition. When the heavy
boards were pulled off of them and.
physicians* present had revived them
with water and anesthetics, It was
discovered they were all alive, hut
more or less injured and frightened.
Fortunately no one was underneath
tho stand as the fair had just begun
and all were watching the entries.
After order had been restored and
the injured carried to the Julia Irby
hospital, the doctor's offices and pri
vate homes, the fair directors pro
ceeded with the program as they felt
they could do ' nothing towards the
relief of tho Injured. The physicians of
the city and tho staff at the Julia Ir
by sanitarium, as well as the citi
zens of the town generally,' immed
iately proffered their services and
everything Ij now beior; done for the
lebmfort of the injured ones-. Auto
mobile owners made improvised am
bulances of their cars and assisted in
getting the wounded to places whero
they could be treated. Nothing Is
bolng loft undone which could de
tract from the comfort of tho unfor
tunate ones.
