time, after three months from the date of such rejection, without paying any additional fee therefor; provided he shall apply for such re-examination at some regular meeting of the Board.

V.

The questions and answers of all examinations will usually be in writing, but applicants may be subjected to oral examination if the Board should deem it necessary or proper.

VI.

Attorneys From Other States; How Admitted.

Every applicant for admission to the bar upon a license or other voucher showing his admission as an attorney at law in another State or foreign country, must present to the Board such license duly certified, or a copy of the record of the Court showing his admission to the bar, duly proved, as required by law for the authentication of the records of Courts of sister States, when offered in evidence in the Court of this State. Such license or voucher must confer the right to practice in the highest courts in such State or foreign country. Such applicant shall be admitted upon such license or voucher without examination by the Board, if it appears to the Court by certificate of said Board, that in the State or country in which the license was issued the requirements for admission to the bar were equal to those prescribed in this State. Or, if it should appear that the applicant has been engaged in active practice of law for a period of five years in courts of record under such license and provided further, that the Board is otherwise satisfied that the applicant is worthy. The Board shall certify to this Court persons entitled to admission by virtue of having been admitted to the bar in such other State or foreign country.

Provided, however, that non-resident attorneys associated with attorneys in this State, in any case here pending, who do not desire to practice law regularly in this State, will be allowed to appear and argue cases in which they may be employed, as a matter of comity, without being required to procure license as above provided, when introduced to the Court by a reputable lawyer of the bar where the case desired to be argued is pending. VII. It is directed by the Supreme Court that the Board of Law Examiners shall hold examinations at the places designated in the Act creating said Board, approved March 30, 1903, and in addition, Memphis, Shelby County, and Chattanooga, Hamilton County, Tennessee, at such times as the Board may fix.

In pursuance to the authority conferred upon us by the Act of the General Assembly of the State of Tennessee, approved March 30th, 1903, we hereby fix the compensation of the Board of Law Examiners at the sum of $250 each, as provided by said Act.

The officers of said Board shall consist of a President and a Secretary and Treasurer, the last two of which may be filled by one person.

The President:—The next order of business is the discussion of the New Federal Equity Rules by Judge Edward T. Sanford, of Knoxville.

Judge Sanford is known to all the members of this Association. Indeed, there is no member of the Tennessee Bar Association who has contributed more to its success and to the success of its annual meetings than Judge Sanford.

I take pleasure in presenting to you Judge E. T. Sanford, of Knoxville.

The learned exposition of the New Federal Equity Rules by Judge Sanford, and the informal discussion invoked by numerous questions from the members of the Association, made this one of the most interesting features of the meeting, but in deference to the wishes of Judge Sanford his address is omitted from this publication.

It was moved and seconded that a vote of thanks be tendered Judge Sanford for his excellent exposition of the New Federal Equity Rules.
