Hon. David J. Baker, of Alton.and Sarah
T. (Falrchild) Baker. After completing
hi preparatory education he entered
ShurtlerT college at Upper Alton, and
graduated Iroin the game with honor In
1854, receiving the distinction of deliver
ing the "LaUn iolutatory," beside an
English oration, on commence

and his skill as an attorney, is of the
highest order, and he has been honored
ly his fellow-citizens with various posi
tions of public trust. His first presiden
tial vote was cast for Fremont in 1S5C,
and always having been a warm sup
porter ol the Kepubllcan party, he
hat on many occasions ably sus
tained its principles, and vindi
cated Its course of action. From
1SG4 to 1S05 he was mayor of his city,
and in March 1869, was elected judge ot
the Nineteenth Judicial circuit. In June
1872, without opposition, he wa electel
to the judgeship of the Twenty-sixth
judicial circuit, (the circuit having been
reorganized by the legislature in accor
dance with the provisions of the consti
tution of 1S70), and holds that position at
the present time, (137C). Judge Baker
is a mau of fine native endowments,

of thorough discipline aud extensive re

est esteem ; and in all matters pertaining
to the interest of his state or
country ha manifested au active interest,
and iu many ways contributed to public
progress and improvement. Naturally
of a generous disposition, his hand has
ever been open to supply the wants of
the needy and those in distress ; and al
though he has never been a man of wealth,
he has always possessed a liberal compe

Christianity, and is a regular attendant
upon the services of the Protestant
Episcopal church. He is a member of
the Masonic fraternity ; has been a Mas
