The meeting of the American Bar Association for 1907 was a notable one, both in respect of the attendance and in the importance of many of the matters discussed. Not only was the attendance unusually large, but the presence of many distinguished men from abroad who were delegates to the meetings of the International Law Association, held during the same week, added distinction to the gatherings. The meetings reflected significantly the discussion throughout the country upon the great legal and political questions which the changing conditions in the commercial and industrial world have brought so prominently before the nation during the last few years. Three of the principal addresses were concerned directly with the divergent views regarding the proper construction of the Constitution of the United States particularly as bearing upon the control of commerce.
