REFORM OF PROCEDURE NEEDED
"We Need n Little More Frlendl?
Gonilplnir br JndR( Over Buck
Fcncea," Sara Speaker at
MONTREAL, ' Aug. 51. Tha first Inter
state conference of judges since the
United States of America became a na
tion met here tonight to plan for uni
formity of judicial procedure. The con
ference was preliminary to the annual
meeting of the American Bar associa
tion which opens here Monday. New
York state was represented chiefly by
the presiding judges of Its courts of last
resort. Three were present, also Judges
representing the nine federal circuit
courts of appeals and the federal court
of Hawaii, Porto Rico and the court of
appeals ot the District ot Columbia,
The aim of the conference la to elimi
nate delay and reduce the expenses ot
litigation. The judges wish to have the
courts released -from some of the statutes
that now bind then and left free to
make their own rules? It was suggested
that the supreme court have' superin
tendence over the rules of pleading and
practice In all federal and stato. courts
and gradually bring about' Uniform court
Thomas W, Shelton oi Virginia, chair
man of tho committee on uniform judicial
procedure ot the bar association, pre
sided. In his address, Mr. Shelton pre
dicted that the gathering would mean to
Interstate Judicial delegations what the
Mount Vernon conference of 1785 between
Virginia and Maryland meant to Inter
state commerce relations.
The practical men of commerce, said
Mr. Shelton, are demanding the Injection
of practical common sense In the ma
chinery of the courts and congress and
the legislatures are being called upon to
give the courts the necessary power. He
.advocated a "flxel system of Interstate
judicial relations," declaring that It
ought to be quite as possible and even
less difficult than the present plan of
Interstate commerce relations. Instead
of thousands of merchants, manufactur
ers and bankers and hundreds ot rail
roads and other human endeavors, creat
ing difficult complications to solve, there
would bo forty-tight supreme appellate
courts and nine federal circuit courts
of appeals to agree upon any given prin
ciple, "We need a little more friendly gossip
ing by the judges over the bock fences,"

Records of the local weather bureau
show that this has been the hottest Au.

years ago. For the first thirty days the
average mean temperature was 82.4 de

Away back In 18S0 there was an August
when the mean temperature for the
month was 80. Then again, In 1909, there
was another August when the mean tem

left In which there may be a fall, but
there Is very little or no chance of the
mean average .for the month dropping
below the 0 degrees mark, and It Is prac
tically certain that tne August record
will be broken.
In addition to this being the hottest Au.
! gust known In Omaha, there was another
record broken. There were Just nine days
in this month when the mercury In the
tube climbed to the 100 degrees mark or
over. That is a new record. Then there

For Stock Passes
(From a Staff Correspondent)
LINCOLN, Aug. 31. (Special.) The
State Railway commission has-been in
formed that the railroads are ignoring
the new law requiring return transporta
tion for one-car shipments and will file
a suit to test the law.
It Is understood that the railroads con
tend that the courts of other states have
decided such laws In favor of the rail
roads and believe that a tent In this
state will bring the same result.
The bill which amended the old law,
which called for return transportation
wh ,n two cars were shipped, was changed
to one car and was Introduced by Senator
Grace of Harlan county.
Byron Clark, attorney for the Burling
ton; N. IL Loomls, general solicitor for
the Union Pacific, and A, A. McLaugh
lin, attorney for the Northwestern, have
all decided that the roads cannot be
forced to furnish transportation both
ways on one-car shipments of stock.
