REPORT OF ANNUAL MEETING

OF THE

IDAHO STATE BAR

Lewiston, Idaho, Sept. 3, 4, 5

1925

The Idaho State Bar was called to order at 10 o'clock a. m. on September 3rd, 1925, at the Lewis-Clark hotel by R. D. Leeper, of Lewiston, vice president, in the absence of John C. Rice, President of the Idaho State Bar, who was unable to attend.

The chairman announced that, for the reason that many members enroute to the meeting would not arrive until the afternoon, the regular program for the morning session would be postponed until the afternoon.

A canvassing board to canvass the election returns for commisioners of the eastern and western divisions, was named at this time by the chairman. The board consisted of Jay Parrish, Boise, P. E. Stookey, Lewiston, and R. H. Johnson, Boise.

Mr. Leeper stated that some embarrassment had been occasioned to local members in charge of arrangements for the convention, by reason of the fact that Chester H. Rowell, of San Francisco, scheduled to speak on the “World Court", had telegraphed that he would not attend unless he could meet Senator William E. Borah in debate on this question. The chairman stated that there had been no mention of a debate in the negotiations with Mr. Rowell and that he regretted to announce Mr. Rowell's refusal to come to Lewiston.

John T. Becker announced that a banquet for members of the association only would be held on the following evening, followed by a dance from 9 to 12, and that music would be provided in the lobby of the hotel each afternoon from 1:30 o'clock until 2 o'clock.

The meeting recessed until 2 o'clock in the afternoon.

AFTERNOON SESSION, SEPTEMBER 3 The Vice President introduced Dr. E. G. Braddock, mayor of Lewiston, who delivered an address of welcome. Dr. Braddock said:

"Mr. Chairman, Members of the Bar of the State of Idaho, Ladies and Gentlemen: I hope that during your visit here you will give some time and thought to the great wave of crime that is sweeping our country and gnawing at our foundations. It is through you that we can find out the cause for this trouble and arrive at some treatment that will cure and eliminate this great evil. You attorneys must do this the same as a doctor determines the cause of a disease before he can effect a cure. I do not think that the doctor should be given such an active part in the investigation of crime. Too often these so-called
