Tacoma, WASH., July 6, 1899. The Washington State Bar Association met in annual session in Department Three of the County Court House in the City of Tacoma at 10 o'clock A. M., and was called to order by Hon. T. L. Stiles, President.

And I have noticed that the papers to be read, at least three of them, are along the line of current events — topics that are being discussed by lawyers and others; for instance, “What Is to Be Done With the Trusts?” The trusts
