Parker Talks to Lawyers
About Revolt Against High'
WHERE COURTS ERRED
Condemns Suspension of Laws by
Injunction Without Hearing.
Only Extend Federal Power
PORTLAND, Me., Aug. 26. When
the 30th annual meeting of the Amer
ican Bar Association opened today, 200
delegates had arrived and as many
more are expected by tomorrow. The
City Hall was well filled when Presi
dent Alton B. Parker called the meet
ing to order. The Important feature
will he the report of the committee on
life insurance legislation, which will
Chief Justice Emery, of the Maine
Supreme Court, extended the state
bars a welcome. Judge Parker was
loudly applauded when he arose to de
liver his annual address.
Judge Parker's address was, in the
main, an argument for strict construc
tion of the Constitution in relation to
the regulation of Interstate commerce
and trusts, and against expansion of
the Federal power except by constitu
tional amendment. He began with a
, eulogy of the lawyers, saying that as
a prpfession they had high ideals and
though a considerable number were
destitute of character and a disgrace
to their profession, they were the
minority. He said the people made
common law, and it was the office of
the Judge not to make it but to find
It. "In this way." he said, "our un
written law, better known as the com
mon law, has been so developed as to
meet the exigencies of our wonderful
growth and expansion, and of our
complicated business and social condi
tions." Revolt Against High Finance.
He declared the proper function of
the legislator supplementary to that
of the Judge, but so many bills presses
on his attention that he could not mas
ter them. Comparatively few bills
were carefully considered, and many
were passed which ought never to
have been heard of. As illustrating
the opinion of a lawyer on such bills,
he said Governor Hughes had killed
484 at the last session out of over
He then referred to the popular up
rising against high- finance following
the insurance inquiry. He admitted
the evils, but said demagogues filled
the land with denunciation not only
of the wrongdoers, but of all corpor
ate interests of every kind. He dwelt
on the services rendered to the Nation
by railroads, street railways and fac
tories. . He defined the remedies pro
posed by these demagogues as of two
classes. One was Federal control of
insurance companies, trust companies,
great railroads and other corporations.
In this manner, OonsreM cou)1 relieve the
Ftata of their Feveral duties and obligation
to their own creation, and at the same time
effectively relieve Hin.'h corporations from
ctate. control. In that clasjr, in addition to
the political leaders and other weU-meaninfc
. persons who hai nor especially studied our
constitutions, hoth Federal and etate, were
to be ftiund some who were interested officially
.In insurance, railroad and other corporation.
In the second class were to be found those
who, - whiie not disagreeing with the first
claRS In the assumption that Congress po
'pwm the power by the commerce and post
load provisions of tha Constitution to central
ize the pi-cuter portion of powers of ftovern
mer.t in the Federal Government, nevertheless
Insisted that the remedy thus proposed was
not broad enoujth. With them the remedy of
remedies is for the Federal (Jovprnment to
acquire the railroad and operate them.
Opponents of Federal Power.
He also divided the opponents of
these remedies into two classes, "the
first embracing those who deemed it
wise to study the situation deeply, to
provide for the immediate trial of ex
isting remedies, and If the law be
found Inadequate in any respect, then
to supplement it "by such other statute
or statutes as should be found needful.
The second class composed of adher
ents to the power and duty of the
state, opposed the slower and' safer
method of those who proposed to look
before leaping, and loudly proclaimed
the necessity for legislation that
should tear up that which Is, both root
and branch, and start anew."
Under these circumstances, the
State Legislatures met and passed a
great amount of hasty legislation. One
feature of this was the attempt to
prevent railroad corporations from
contesting the validity of statutes in
the courts. Some of this legislation
was due to agitation in favor of more
control by the Federal Government,
based on the assertion that the states
had failed in their duty. He admitted
that there was some truth in this
charge, but continued:
Government Started Crusade.
Now. he who surveys the action of the
legislative and executive departments of the
State Governments during the last few
tnonths cannot with truth say that they
have been Inactive during this period. Nor
can he say that the Federal Government
has been more active or more drastic in its
action than have the states. But It can be
paid, and therefore It shouid be said, that
the Federal Government began the crusade.
Therein was to be found, it seems to me,
the sole basis for the assumption that the
Federal Government, had It possessed the
power, would have done better than the
states. That assumption presents but a
feeble argument In favor of taking away
any authority now enjoyed by the states In
order to confer It upon the National Gov
. eminent. And yet many honest, patriotic
ftien who think otherwise, men who believe
that It were better that the states were
shorn of much of their power, seeing the
neglect of official or citizens or both, in
the state or states to which they owe alle
giance, would abandon all attempts to right
the wrongs, surrender Jurisdiction, and pass
the responsibility on to the Federal Gov
ernment. Favors Strict Construction.
He proceeded to argue that all the pow
ers not expressly surrendered to the Fed
eral Government or reserved to the peo
ple as a whole, were reserved by the
state. He referred to the proposals for
t edcral supervision of railroad capital!
zation and Federal Incorporation and li
censing of coriorations engaged In inter
state commerce, and contended that.
while their object was laudable. It would
violate the Federal Constitution and tend
to the destruction of our dual form of
government, quoting agnlnBt It Washing
ton's farewell letter. He quoted the opin
ion of the Supreme Court on the Kansas-
Colorado case against the constitutional
ity of the proposed measures. He held
that production of commodities was not
commerce, and therefore could not be
made the subject of Federal license.
Should Not Suspend Laws.
lie defended the action of Judge Tit
chard of the United States Court, In
suspending the North Carolina rate law,
as clearry sustained by the Fourteenth
Amendment. He continued:
It seems to me that courts, "hoth Federal
and state, should always bear in mind that
comity which has thus far enabled the
dual jurisdictions to work together so har
moniously for the public good. And. fur
ther, that care should be taken that the
procedure shall evince that dellbaration
that doth so become a Judge at all times,
and especially when the object of an action
is to declare void the deliberate act of a
legislative department of state
government. I have in mind an ac
tion in which application wag made for
Injunction, but, before granting It, counsel
representing the state, as well as those
representing the plaintiff, were heard fully.
The Judge wrote his opinion and then
granted an Injunction upon conditions that
would safeguard to the last penny every
person interested. The right to grant an In
junction under such circumstances cannot
be denied, but the propriety of granting,
on an ex parte application, an Injunction
which refuses effect to a statute can- and
should be questioned.
A statute upon the face of which no im
perfection appears, and which will stand,
unlesa It can be proved that It will "prevent
the property affected from earning a rea
sonable return for the Investment, is pre
sumptively constitutional. Its operation,
therefore. Is not a matter to be suspended
for light reasons. Indeed. I have no hesita
tion in saying that in many such cases an
appeal to the discretion of a Judge that
Injunction Issue could well be denied until
Should Not Fear Yellow Press.
He suggested as a remedy for hasty
and ill-considered laws that each law,
before its passage, be passed upon after
argument by a tribunal, the equal of the
best courts. He urged lawyers to work
for calmness by Legislatures and ad
herence to the Constitution. He gave
them this warning, however:
Do not forget, however, that if you at
tempt it. you will be denounced by the
demagogue and cartooned by the yellow
press, a fate which has come to the few
who have appealed to reason and to Justice.
These tactics have enforced silence upon
many whose hearts have prompted them to
point out the danger of government by pas
sion. Code of Lawyers' Ethics.
A proposed code of professional ethics
for the American Bar Association will be
distributed among the members tomor
row. The proposed code, as prepared
by a committee of prominent lawyers
from various sections of the United
States. will be submitted at this
time merely for the information of the
association members. No effort to have
the report adopted will be made at this
time, but it is likely that it will be
submitted to next year's meeting for
such action. The members of the com
mittee which prepared the code are
Henry St. George Tucker, of Virginia;
James G. Jenkins, of Wisconsin; Wil
Jiam Wirt Howe, of Louisiana; Francis
Lynde St-tson, of New York; Ezra B.
Thayer, of Massachusetts; Franklin
Ferris of Missouri; Thomas H. Hub

of Minnesota, and Luclen H. Alexander,
Accompanying the code as prepared
by the committee, is the following re
port of the work already done and
"Your committee are of opinion that
the adoption of canons of professional
ethics by the American Bar Association
is destined to have a powerful and far

of the event. We believe that such can

should be adopted only after mature

PUT WIRES UNDERGROUND
Army Posts to Be Equipped for
Phones and Firing Mines.
WASHINGTON. D. C. Aug. 26. Gen
eral James Allen, Chief Signal Officer, U.
S. A., has commenced- work upon a plan
which contemplates a system of under
ground wire service for telephones at ail
of the military posts of the United
States. He has already installed the un
derground system at Fort Des Moines,
Iowa, and is having it put in at . Van
couver Barracks, Washington.
It Is to be Installed this year at Fort
Russell, Wyo.; Fort Ethan Allen, Vt.;
Fort Slocum, N. Y., and Fort Benjamin
Harrison, Ind. Other posts will be added
to the list as funds are provided by Con
gress. In each post where the under
ground system is Installed all of the offi
cers' quarters, the barracks, non-commis
sioned officers' quarters, hospitals, ad
ministration buildings, and other struc
tures will be connected up with a general
switchboard to which commercial tele
phone companies will be permitted to
make connection. The officers and men
may obtain telephone service from these
companies at such rates as they may be
able to secure. The War Department will
supply the wire connections, but will not
furnish th officers or men with tele
In addition to placing the telephone
wires underground, work will be carried
on as rapidly as possible .at all of the
harbor defense posts in putting under
ground all of the telegraph, telephone
and electric signalling wires, used in ex
ploding harbor mines, directing gun fire,
signalling, and all of the other opera
tions connected with coast and harbor de
fense. Heretofore all of these wires have
been aerial and In the case of attack
would have been exposed to the gun flro
of an opposing force. With overhead
wires a chance shot could readily put an
