It was exactly 10:30 o'clock when President. Storey stopped to the front of the platform a.nd introduced the distinguished jurist. He said: "I hove now the very KrenVPlcasure, not of Introd-ucinpr, for ho needs no Introduction to any Engllsh-Rp»aklnpr lawyer,-but of presenting:.to you-.Lord Russell, of Kll- lowen, the "lord chief justice of England, who .will deliver the annual, address on 'International 1 Arbitration.' " Lord RuHM'Il Konndly Applauded. As Lord Kiissell '^stepped forward the vast audience broke into unrestrained applause, which continued'for fully a minute. Throughout' the delivery of his paper, which was ruore of an address then a. forensic effort, the closest attention was given by the audience. Lord Russell spoke easily, impressively and with great force. There was no gesticulation. He stood behind a high desk with his hands firmly grasping the sides, and read hie address, which was frequently punctuated ,with applause, in even, convincing tones. Following the burst of applause, lie prefaced his address by saying: - ••!• "JMy ftrst words must be In acIcnOTVledff- ment of the slpnal honors done.me by In- vitlnp me'to address you on this lnterest r occasion. You are a contrress of lawyers, met here to take council, In no narrow spirit, upon questions affecting your profession, to consider the needs for legls- atlon which time'and experience develop; to consider tho tendencies of legislation, state and federal, and the course of judicial declulon." [Applause.] Fraliio for the United Slalm. . • Speaking of the.formation of international law. Lord IZUsscll complimented .the United States thus':. "It is not too much "to say that tho undoubted stream of tendency in mod-jrn International .law to raltlsate the horrors of war, to humanize .or-to make less Inhuman its methods, and to narrow tho area of its consequential evils, is largely duo to the policy of your Ktiitenmen and the moral influence of your jurists." Impediment! to Arbitration. Speaking of the.difficulties in the way of effective arbitration,' he said: "But there are differences to which, even as between Individuals,' arbitration is Inapplicable—subjects .which find their counterpart In the affairs of nations. Men do not arbitrate where character In at stake nor will any self-reupectlp'g nation readily arbitrate on questions touchlnjir Its national Independence or affecting Its honor "Affaln, a nation may-agree to arbitrate Mid then repudiate Its agreement. Who In to coerce It? Or, having:go>To toarbltra- tlon and been worsted, It may decline to be bound by the award. Who Is to compel It? "Those considerations seem to me to Justify two conclusions. The first Is, that arbitration will not cover the whole field of International controversy, and the second,' that unless and until the great powers of the world. In: Ic-apue, bind themselves to coerce a recalcitrant member of the family of nations—we have still to face the more than possible disregard by powerful states of tho obligations, of good faith and of justice." Engllfth People Matt Work Tng;th«r. Concluding, the speaker said: • ; "Mr. President; I be»;an by speaking of tho two great divisions — -American and British—of that English-speaking world which you and I represent to-day, and with one more reference to them I end. Who can doubt tho lnflueh.ce they pos- •OBS for Insuring the healthy progress and peace.of mankind?.. But if this Influence.Is :o bo fully felt, they must work, together n cordial friendship, and each people In, ,ts own sphere of action. If they have roat power, they have' also g-rep.t responsibility. No cause they espouse can :all; no cause they, oppose can triumph. L'he future Is, In large''.part, theirs. They iave the malting of history In the times .hat arc to come. .ThcVgreatent calamity .ha.t. could befall would be strife which ihould divide them. • ..!.... •''Let us pray that this shall never be. jet us pray that they, always self-rcEpect- ng, each in honor upholding Us own Hag, afcguardlng -Ita. own /Heritage>of right,, and resoectlncr the rlfftffc of'others', naoh ~ K-S o-wn way tumiiing- its nlgn national destiny, shall yet work In harmony *or the- progress ana the peace of the world." Lord ilns»c-U I« Appreciated. Lord Kussell concluded his address at 12:15 o'clock. As he closed the audience vigorously applauded, and then, by way of emphasizing its approval of Lord Russell's remarks, rose to its feet nnd cheered for several minutes. An informal recess was i.-ike'n, during which all thnt could possibly do so crowded to the platform and clasped the hand of Lord Kussell. When ordei was reslored'Edward J. Phelps, of Vermont, moved that the thanks of the association be presented to Lord Kussell for the luminous and eloquent address of his lordsh'ip which they had had the pleasure of hearing. This was seconded by Jnmcs Carter, of New York, and carried. Gen. E. K. Bullard, of New York offered the following, which was carried unanimously: "Resolved, That the American Bar asso-' .clntlon concurs with the principles enuncl- iQted in the eloquent address of Lord Chlcl Justice Russell. Be It further, "Resolved, That it be referred to th< committee on international law to recommend such further cause of international arbitration." During this time Lord liusscll and hia party retired from the • hall'. The routine business oi the association was takwi up. The first of the routine'busi- ness was the report of Ihe committee en jurisprudence and law reform, ol which Senator Gray, of Delaware, in chairman. He reported progress r.'.nd asked further tiro<». Eobert D. Benedict, of New York, c'hnirm::n of the combine-; o;i iu^'rial administration and remedial procedure, presented a very voluminous report which, in the main, favored appeal in criminal cases. The report was adopted. The report on internation.il law was made through its chairman, Everett P. Wheeler, of New York city. It recommended that the American Bar association concur in the resolutions adopted by the American conference on international arbitration at Washington in April, which favored the immediate establishment between the. United States and Great Britain of a permanent system of arbitration and the earliest possible extension of such s\ system to embrace all civilized nations. These resolutions were most ably seconded by Hon. Henry Hitchcock, ol- Missouri, and unanimously carried. LOOKING FOR THEIR ADVS. Flttiiburgh Buslnenn Men ..Swindled trf Two Clover Voun£ Men.
