Judicial Association.—On Jan. 10, 1876, the judges of the several judicial districts met at the Tefft House in Topeka for the purpose of organizing a state judicial association. The justices of the supreme court were invited to take part in the proceedings, and accepted the invitation. The principal objects of the association were to secure an impartial enforcement of the laws and to elevate the standard of the legal profession. To this end a rule was adopted that "All applicants for admission to the practice of law must produce satisfactory evidence of their statutory qualifications, and pass an examination in open court, which examination must be satisfactory to the court, and to a committee of three practicing attorneys, appointed by the court to aid in such examination."

Owen A. Bassett was elected president of the permanent organization, and Samuel R. Peters, secretary. At the second meeting, which was held at the same place on Jan. 9, 1877, Samuel A. Kingman was elected president, Mr. Peters being reëlected to the office of secretary. The third and last meeting was held on Jan. 8, 1878, at the Tefft House. Papers were read by Judges A. G. Otis and A. S. Wilson. The records do not show why the association was discontinued.
