Joy was unconflned at the annual field day and dinner of the Omaha Bar asso ciation at the Field club yesterday after noon and evening, and the merriment reached its height at the dinner. Eleazer Wakeley, "90 years young," nestor of the Nebraska bar, was the principal guest of honor at the dinner and made what the attorneys said was the most brilliant speech of the evening. Judges of the supreme court of Nebraska were other guests of honor. They forgot dig nity and spoke of each other In common terms. The diners laughed for hours around the dinner table. Introduced by M. A. Hall, president of the association, Chief Justice Manoah B. Reese eulogized Mr. Wakeley, who sat at the president's left, tye related the Incident of Mr. Wakeley's offering proof In a default lawsuit thirty years ago, when the Judge who was hearing the case said he needed no proof, Mr. Wake ley's word being sufficient for him. Mr. Wakeley responded, saying Mr. Hall was In error in saying the dinner was honored by his presence. "The honor is to me, not to you," said Mr. Wakeley. "Many men who have reached my age have been asked for the secret of ad vanced years," continued the aged at torney. "They have received as many answers as there are aged men. . Some say they have kept regular habits, re frained from drinking and smoking, attended church regularly, and lived ab stemious lives. Others say they have eaten when hungry, smoked and chewed, drunk whisky, and voted the democratic ticket. I could prove by a long con tinued advertisement that the real secret is a certain kind of whisky. Seriously the secret is only the secret of that benign providence that makes the destiny ot all of us, that 'divinity that shapes our ends.' " Mr. Wakeley paid tribute to B. E. B. Kennedy, George, W. Doane. J. W. Sav age, C F. Manderson, Charles L. Greene, Richard & Hall and Jacob FawcetU Justice Reese and the supreme court judges with tho exception of Judge Rose made brief addresses, expressing their pleasure over being guests of the bar association. Judge Francis G. Haraer told of the struggles ot the supreme judges In deciding cases, -and related that they sometimes almost come to blows. Judge Fawcett said Hamer's talk indi cated there is no truth In the charge that the decisions are "one-man opln- lona" C. J. Smyth called out, "The record Is against you." After Justice Rees had eulogised Mr. Wakeley, and bad given him a beautiful bouquet. John L, Webster did the same for Justice Reese, who responded in a husky voice. Other speakers of the evening were City Attorney Iaaao Adams of Manila, formerly ot Omaha, who told of the Phil ippine courts; R. J. Greene and H. 3. Stoddard of Lincoln; C. J. Smyth, T. J. Mahoney, who said the public should foster greater respect for the courts; and J J. J. Sullivan, who said the talks were getting serious and therefore the meet ing should be adjourned. Shortly after the beginning of the din ner, the young attorneys took charge of the festivities, singing songs and "guy ing" all the speakers,- xcept those on the regular program. In the afternoon the attorneys and the judges played a game of town ball. Teams headed by Clinton Brome and. J P. Palmer contested, Palmer's side win ning. 11 to 5. Various Infants' toys were given as prizes during the dinner. JUDGES WI.V PRIZES OJf FIELD Golf and Base Ball Flayed at Annual Field Day Meet. Judge George A.
