REPORT

OF THE

EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE.

NARRAGANSETT PIER, RHODE ISLAND, August 23, 1905.

The Executive Committee respectfully report that under the last clause of Article IV of the Constitution, providing for the election of members by the Executive Committee between meetings when nominated by a majority of the VicePresident and Local Council, the following thirty-four members were elected.

(See List at end of List of New Members.) Your Committee further report that, in accordance with the 12th by-law, appropriations were made for the use of the committees for the year 1904–1905, on their application, not exceeding the following amounts:

$250 to Committee on Legal Education and Admissions

to the Bar.
$400 to Committee on Insurance Law.
$225 to Committee on International Law.
$250 to Committee on Patent, Trade-Mark and Copyright

Law.
$750 to Committee on Uniform State Laws.
$250 to Committee on Classification of the Law.

$200 to Committee on Penal Laws and Prison Discipline. Two matters were referred to the Executive Committee at the last meeting and have been considered by your committee:

1. The proposed amendment to the by-laws relating to the appointment of a Reception Committee, which will be found on page 56 of the proceedings of 1904. The Executive Committee recommend the amendment of the proposed by-law by inserting after the words “ appointed annually” the words 10

(145)

[ocr errors]

“ by the President," and recommend the passage of the amendment to the by-laws to read as follows:

“There shall be appointed annually by the President a committee to be known as the Reception Committee, consisting of fifteen members of the Association, whose duty it shall be to attend immediately before and at the opening of the first day's session of the meeting to receive members and delegates and introduce them to each other, with a view of making them better acquainted and establishing a spirit of good fellowship among them."

2. The proposed amendment to the by-laws relating to committee reports, which will be found on page 57 of the proceedings of 1904, providing, substantially, that committee reports shall be forwarded to the Secretary twenty days before the annual meeting and printed and distributed by him to all members at least ten days before the annual meeting. The Executive Committee are of opinion that the present by-law requiring the advance distribution to members to be made fifteen days before the meeting with the implied necessity of placing the reports in the hands of the Secretary a sufficient time in advance of the fifteen day limit to enable him to print them, sufficiently accomplishes the purpose desired and that no amendment to the by-law is necessary.

All committees for the ensuing year whose work may entail expense are requested to conform to the 12th by-law, which requires “ previous application in advance of expenditure," such application to be made to the Executive Committee through the Secretary.

Respectfully submitted,

HENRY ST. GEO. TUCKER,
JAMES HAGERMAN,
JOIN HINKLEY,
FREDERICK E. WADHAMS,
PETER W. MELDRIM,
M. F. DICKINSON,
THEODORE S. GARNETT,
WILLIAM P. BREEN,

Executive Committee.
