Excerpt from Michigan Law Journal, 1894, Vol. 3
The most important of these committees is the committee on legislation and law reform, composed of: Edward Cahill, Lan sing, chairman; George P. Wanty, Grand Rapids; Alfred Russell, Detroit; Henry M. Duﬂield, Detroit; and George W. Weadock, Saginaw. This is a very strong committee, and is made up of lawyers who take enough pride in their profession to spare a little of their time in an effort to improve the profession, and are not likely to resort to the threadbare apology that they did not pre parea report bescause they were too busy. Upon the thor oughness and excellence of their reports depends in great part the success of the annual meeting and the effectiveness of the work of the association. We presume that in accordance with the pro visions of the constitution, the committee caused information to be given, between September 1, 1893, and November 1, 1893, through the public press or otherwise, that it at all times invited suggestions, formulated in writing, as to the law relating to the administration of justice, and directed such suggestions to be mailed to the secretary of the association at Grand Rapids, and indorsed For the committee on legislation and law reform. We infer, and it is a fact to be regretted, that none of the lawyers of the state responded to their invitation, since the secretary reports that no such suggestions have been received by him.
