No man occupying a judicial position had. any higher or keener sense of the responsibility and Importance of the office than. he. He was absolutely Irreproachable. His idea *m * judge was to brook no delay, and he firmly believed that the Interests and rights if the public and of litigants were best sub- nerved by speedy *ci*tonp. His knowledge of the technicalities of the law was pro- 'ound; and he Insisted that the strict letter and spirit of the law should be -followed in tils court.

Starr is reported to be unchanged today, and medical attendants expect death to come at almost any time. The tena- cl^iis tight that Mr. Starr is making against death has given hope of his ultimate recovery to both his family and his host of friends, but each hour with no change for the better, lowers his chances for recovery. The cool weather has beeh a great advantage in the fight Mr. Starr is making. His family think now theje is a bare possibility that he.may pull through, although ultimate recovery is more than doubtful. The Sangamon river will be surveyed during the coming month from the East William street bridge to Stevens Creek. The object will be to locate a suitable site for a sewage disposal plant and also to obtain an accurate khart of the river and of the location of fcmall streams entering between those Iwo. points. The work will be in charge pf the .city engineer. BOOTLEGGING GASES TO CIRCUIT COURT Charles Beeeher H*s Tr«*»fened la- tereuti tn Another Man. That Charles Beeeher has transferred his interest in his place at the corner of Front street and Eldorado, at which place he was charged with illegal sale of liquor, Is indicated from the fact that on June 17, the government license for that place was issued to another man. Beeeher was before Justice McCoy on two charges Monday afternoon. On^one he waived, a preliminary hearing and was bound over to the grand Jury in the sum of J200. TTie other was dismissed on'request of the state's attorney because of the transfer of the business. The. state's attorney also dismissed the case against John.Haipin for want of evidence. Patsey Donahoe gave bond in the sum of $200 on the same charge, having waived his preliminary before Justice McCoy. The Donahoe and Beeeher cases will be heard at the October term of the circuit court. YATES' BODY TO BE SHIPPED HERE The body of Orville Yates, the catur boy who was drowned in the Illinois river at Peorla late Monday .afternoon, is expected to reach Decatur early Wednesday morning and the funeral will probably be-beld Thursday. According to the Peorla papers, the drowning took place 'pust off the pier at Al Fresco park and a score of peo- p!= watched the boy go ^own after his canoe tipped over. him: and his decisions from the bench demonstrated that the cases had been carefully considered. He was a hard worker a« a judge; and It has been a frequest matter of comment that he studied Ipnsr hours at night while considering cases talcen under advisement by him. Be insisted that person transacting business fn his court should assist him in upholding- and maintaining its dignity. HAD MUCH SYMPATHY. Hs sympathies were easily aroused and frequently expressed for the unfortunates brought before him for sentence; and it waa a source of great satisfaction to him to be able to temper justice with mercy through the means of the parole law. However, neither sympathy, prejudice, fear or favor ever Influenced him In the performance of his judicial duties. He won the respect and" admiration of the younger members of the Bar- -by the assistance he rendered them while-at the Ear and on the Bench. As a man, It was a. pleasure and privilege to come In contact wltb him. His friends, who knew and met in a social way, loved and admired^fclm. in politics he was a Republican, and. until his elevation to the Bench, always.toolc un active jart In the councils pt his *pit$?C He was always Identified with every, inove 1 - mcn for.the betterment of the community; and he was one of organizer* of the Country Club of Decatur; also of ; "th.«r Decatur Club. He was also member, of the Presbyterian cHureh. " : The Bar In this circuit and th« community have lost an upright, honest and excellent Judge. RESOLVED. That this memorial be pre- .=!nted to the Circuit Court In each county In tho circuit, and that an engrossed copy hereof '·;: delivered to the family. . ~X^. HUGH W. HOUSUM. : ' ·WILLIAM E.
