FIFTH ANNUAL MEETING
VIRGINIA STATE BAR ASSOCIATION
WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W. VA.,
AUGUST IST, 2D, AND 3D, 1893.
WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W. Va.,
Frank H. McGuire, of Richmond, Chairman of the Executive Committee, called the Association to order at 11 o'clock A. M., and said:
It is my duty to call the Association to order and to invite you to listen to the address of our President.
Mr. R. T. Barton, President of the Association, then read his address.
The President: I will announce the following committees :
Committee to Recommend Officers-S. S. Turner, of Front Royal; E. E. Montague, of Hampton; Eppa Hunton, Jr., of Warrenton; W. O. Hardaway, of Roanoke; and R. R. Prentis, of Suffolk.
Committee on Publications-B. B. Munford, of Richmond; William A. Little, Jr., of Fredericksburg; and James P. Harrison, of Danville.
James Lyons, of Richmond: Mr. President,-I beg leave to offer the following resolution :
Resolved, That the Committee to Recommend Officers be also authorized to name three delegates to the next meeting of the American Bar Association, which will be held at Milwaukee, Wis., September 1, 1893.
It is particularly proper for us to send delegates there at this time, because our distinguished friend and fellow-member of this Association, Hon. J. Randolph Tucker, is President of that body. It is an honor that he worthily won and as worthily wears. I wish it could have been the pleasure of every member of this Association, as it was mine, to be present at the last meeting of the American Bar Association to hear his address and note the close attention with which it was received. Mr. Tucker, by that address, honored his State, honored himself, and honored the profession he adorns. For this reason I hope it may be the pleasure of this Association to send three delegates to that Association. The resolution offered by Mr. Lyons was adopted.
The President: The next thing in order is the report of the Secretary and Treasurer.
Secretary Jackson Guy, of Richmond: Mr. President,-In obedience to the By-Laws I proceed to give a brief summary of my transactions as Secretary during the current year just ended, and an outline of the business that is to come before the Association at this meeting.
Immediately after the last annual meeting, a list of the committees then appointed was prepared and distributed, and each committeeman notified of his appointment.
The proceedings of the last annual meeting, together with the reports of the officers and committees and the addresses and papers read-constituting Volume V. of our Annual Reportswere printed and published in the usual manner, and in due time.
A copy thereof was mailed to each member of the Association, as required. There was also printed a special edition of 500
