The purport of the meeting was to get the approval of the rate- payers for the work that has been done by the Council in protecting the bridge over the Pot Hole at this point. There was not a very good attend- ance, but the opinion was expressed that the town had done a very good work in this regard. The Provincial Government expended about an addition to the bridge, and they stipulated that the muni- cipality should protect it by means of piling. .The Council decided to do this work without- waiting fgr the sanction of the ratepayers, and the above meeting was called for that purpose.

At the annual meeting of the Ontario Bur Associa- tion Mr. M. H, Ludwig, who discuss- ed "Practical Ethics of the Lawyer." "The subject of legal ethics is too large for treatment in short began Mr. Ludwig, "I shall there- fore deal only with a few phases oi practical ethics of a. lawyer in his re- lation with the courts, the bar, his clients, and the public. "A lawyer is an officer of the court, and as 'it is his duty to assist the courts to the bestloLhis ability in the proper performance of their du- the administration of justice. 'L'hero are altogether too many record ed instances where it became necessa- ry to recall or reverse a judgment because counsel did not find and cite authorities which 'it was his duty to find and cite to the court. SHOULDN'T BE SERVILE "There should be no deceit, evasion or imposition, in dealing with the court. "A lawyer should do nothing that will detract from the dignity of the court. While deferential respect should always be extended to the court, both any such, duty devolves upou him. He was consulted as a lawyer, not as a moralist." THE BULLYING LAWYER In connection with the relation, ofj the lawyer with the public, Mr. Lud-1 wig referred to various methods of vertising, advocating only the modest to appear in papers of the highest standing. Ambulance chas- ing, the yellow press, ready-made in- terviews, and the use of the letter paper of firms or institutions for which the lawyer was thu solicitor, were declared not nerrnlssabie. "No honorable barrister or solicitor will assist or countenance such mat- said Mr. Lurtwig, speaking of the methods of certain debt collect- ors. "If the bar is not in favcr with the concluded Mr. Ludwig, "such disfavor has, perhaps, been engender- ed as much because of the uncoasclon able attacks sometimes made by counsel upon honest witnesses as from any other cause. This is not as it should be, and a, more friendly at- titude towards witnesses is desirable 'in the interests of the legal profes- Ottawa..... 56.60, Quebec..... 61.50 Proportionate fares to many other points in Ontario, Que- .bec, and Maritime Provinces.

The dignity of the bench, must be maintained, but also the in- dependence cf the bar. "It is the lawyer's duty not only to assist the courts, but 'also to fairly advocate the appointment to the bench of only the best men available i'or that high office, irrespective of... creed or politics, or the removal from the 'bench ibf any judge who is or has be- come incapable through infirmity or otherwise, of properly performing his judicial duties." POLITICS AND "So said the speaker, "as tbe system i-cLitiial preferment g-'-v ems appointments to che tbo best men available for !his and important offtcb cannot and not always co appointed. If the pre- sent practice 5s u'jer to If changed, who -should inauguiate :f not tha lawyer? Why should it not be his duty to endeavor to have o'.i'y properly qualified administrators of justice on the bench? To enable a judge to hear, counsel should not be obliged to speak in a voice like a' bull of Bashau." Sir. Ludwig commented on the fact that complaint was generally made that some of the judges who preside at some of the county assizes do not always fully hear cases'brought be- fore them, but dispose of them with undue the cases oQ" the trial judge is required or desires to return to Toronto on a certain train on a certain day.

Ludwig, "a lawyer does not trans gross any canon of ethics, but right- fully performs, a duty to his client the public by adopting such, mea- sures as may bo deemed necessary to remedy the grievance." In the relation of the lawyer to the bar, Mr. Ludwig opened with a plea for professional amity, and said the tenth commandment contained a spe- cial rule for lawyers, "Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's client." "Sharp ho remarked, "is invariably traceable to two desire to please a revengeful client or a. desire to manufacture most dishonorable and improper thing to do." BOUND TO CONTINUE With regard to the- relation of a lawyer to his client, Hr. Ludwig said "It seems counsel 5s bound to contin- ue in a case even though during the course of the trial he may ascertain ;that Ms client is purity." This rule, he declared, was laid down by Baron Farko in 1S40, in the trial of a man named Courvofiier, who was on trial for the murder of his master. Lord Russell. "A ndcled Mr. Ludvig, "should, of course, always be declin- ed or, its fr.cc is tainted with immorality. If a client desires to know what the law is regarding a certain contemplated transaction, it is a lawyer's duty to explain it. But his duty should end there. He should not in any way aid in the furtherance of the illegal transaction. "It has been said in such transac- tions a lawyer instead of giving legal advice should take advantage of the opportunity to deliver client a moral lecture. I don't conceive that Stafford-Apw Co.
