THE CHI C AOQ EAQLb:,
JUDGE HENRY HORNER
Hc has been OVERWHELMINGLY endorsed by the Chicago Uar
Association and the Lawyers' Association. The Chicago Bar Associa-
"By his administration of the office of Probate Judge during
the past four years, Judge Horner lias DEMONSTRATED his
EXCEPTIONAL capacity and fitness for the office."
ELECTION DAY, TUESDAY, NOVEMBER FIFTH
Judge Henry Homer, born November 30, 1878, a product of Chicago.
His parents were born here. He resides at 4432 Grand Boulevard, lie
was educated in the Chicago Public Schools, Chicago Manual Training
School, Chicago University', Chicago Kent College of Law, and was
admitted to the bar of this state in 1899, and has practiced taw until
December, 1914, when he took the bench as Probate Judge. He is now
completing bis first term as Judge of that court.
(Mcinbcr of the Chicago Bar Association, Illinois State Bar Asso
ciation, American Bar Association, anil various clubs.
In discharging the duties of the Probate Court during the past four
years of his service, Judge Homer has displayed legal ability, judicial
qualifications, and siicli fairness, intelligence and industry that his court
has been accorded the approval of the bar and the admiration of the
community. He has applied efficiency and business methods to the dis
patch of the court's work, disposing of it expeditiously and yet with just
and fair consideration of the cases that have come before him.
The Probate Court affects the interests which require the most
zealous and impartial administration. This court deals not only with the
affairs of minors and incompetents, but guards the welfare and property
of widows and orphans. .
Immediately upon his induction into office, Judge Homer began an
investigation into old estates, finding estates that hail been unnecessarily
kept open since 1878. He organized a special department for the pur
pose of closing up these old estates and has succeeded during the past
fou years in closing up many thousands of them, requiring defaulting
administrators, guardians, conservators, and other administrative officers
to account to the heirs, beneficiaries and wards of many of these estates.
He enforced the policy that members of the family, rather than
strangers, should adininistcrj deccdent'si estates, adopting a system of
card indices in connection with the closing uii of estates.
The bonds of administrative officers arc the most important part of
the administration: Judge Homer has driven from the Probate Court
all "fake bondsmen," and has examined into bonds of all administrators
and other administrative officers of this court The costs of administra
tion have been rather high in Cook County, but under the power granted
to Judge Horner by statute, he has released costs in the smaller estates
where the payment of costs has been a burden to the beneficiaries. The
amount released by him in these smaller estates has amounted to hun
dreds of thousands of dollars; notwithstanding this, the clerk's office has
paid over to the county a profit each year of his administration, after
paying all expenses of maintaining the office.
Among other things accomplished by Judge Homer hns been the
Secured a reduction in the costs of legal publications in the Probate
Court hy abolishing what is known as "rebates."
Saving the necessity of taking out administration in many cases
where decedent left but small estate.
Required all "attorneys-in-fact" receiving moneys on behalf of for
eign heirs to account to the court showing that the money was actually
paid over to their principals.
Required the payment of personal property taxes to the county from
estates before they could he closed.
Required administrators and executors to close estates where prac
tical, promptly after the year of administration.
Established tic practice o,f personally examining minors in open
court in settlement cases for injuries to minors.
Opened up a bureau in connection with the Probate Court so that
persons without means may have counsel furnished to them gratuitously
by the county.
Established rules requiring notice to be given to all members of
the family of the appointment of conservators and guardians.
Prepared a revision of the l.tw of the stale on the subject of the
administration of decedent's estates, the administration of minor's es
tates, and of insane and spendthrift ward estates. On each of these
subjects Judge Homer has prepared a complete code for statutory enact
ment and to facilitate and simplify the procedure and make more effi
cient the administration of these estates work of months and years
introduced in the Senate as BilIs(No. 509, No. 510 and No. 511. Spent
my own money to further legislation on the subject.
Revised rules of Court.
