PROCEEDINGS.

SEATTLE, WASH., July 10, 1900. The Washington State Bar Association met in annual session in Elk's Hall, in the City of Seattle, at 10 o'clock A. M.,

and was called to order by Hon. George Donworth, President.

There were present: Hon. George Donworth, President; Austin Myers, Second Vice President; Nathan S. Porter, Secretary; William A. Peters, Treasurer, and a quorum of members.

Hon. T. J. Humes, Mayor of the City of Seattle, then delivered the following address of welcome: Mr. President and Members of the State Bar Association:

I never become embarrassed — scarcely ever, except when I appear before a delegation composed of beautiful women or brainy men. I have had occasion in my official capacity as the mayor of this city a great many times to welcome delegations or individuals and societies to this city, but never before. I believe, have I had occasion to welcome to this city a body of individuals who had so much to do with the affairs of mankind generally as do the lawyers. It is with pleasure, gentlemen, that I welcome you to this fair and growing city. I trust that the result of your deliberations may prove beneficial to yourselves as well as to the people of the state. Every lawyer in the city, every individual in the city - I speak now for those who hail from outside the city of Seattle will try to make your stay among us as pleasant as possible. Again, gentlemen, I cordially welcome you to our city. (Applause.)

THE PRESIDENT The first order of business set forth in the by-laws is the reading of the record of the proceedings of the preceding meeting. The Secretary will now read the record. .

MR. ARTHUR – I move that the reading of the record be dis. pensed with. It has been published, and all the members, I believe, or nearly all, have received a copy of it and have read it.

THE SECRETARY - I second the motion.

THE PRESIDENT - It has been moved and seconded that the reading of the minutes of the preceding meeting be dispensed with.

Motion was unanimously carried.

THE PRESIDENT The next order of business is an address by the President. (See Appendix.)
