FUVERAL V. MORROW M0RN1K6 AT 10.
County Judge Charles II. Thomas
breathed his last nt 5 o'clock yester
day afternoon, surrounded by family
His death ended two years of almost
incessant sufferlnc, but took
from the city one of her best citizens,
and from tho county one of her
most faithful servants.
Judge Thomas had been confined
to his bed for two months, and
last few days life was despaired
of. The fatal malady was a complicated
lung nnd stomach trouble,
which had been more or less manifest
for several ycjrs past.
The deceased was born in 1H!7 in
Mallard county and was educated in
Lovelaccville and Milburn, afterwards
reading law iu the Kentucky
University. He also studied law
under Hon. Tom Corbctt, now of
Oklahoma, who then resided at
Blaudvillo, being admitted to the bar
in 1869. Ho was police judge oi
Blandvillc about 1873, where he first
gained tho title of judge. In 1871
he was elected county attorney of
Ballard, nnd In 1880 was elected
commonwealth's attorney for the
First Judicial district, which nt that
time was composed of tho eight lower
counties. For this position ho defeated
the Hon. W. M. Recti, of
Benton, nnd Hon. Bernard Ncnlc, of
In 1880 Judge Thomas moved his
family to Paducah, and six years
later Mr. Sam Cross'and, of May-field,
defeated him and lion. John
K. Hcndrlck for the attorneyship.
Judge Thomas was subsequently
elected polico judge and city prosecuting
attorney for one term.
In 1870 he was married in Louisville
to Miss Elizabeth Taylor, who,
with three children, survives him. Ho
leaves a number of other ro'atives.
The deceased was in 1893 elected
county judge, and his term would
have expired in Novcmbei.
Judge Thomas was a self-made
man, and an cuergctic one. Ho was
one of tho most remarkable campaigners
iu the state, and leaves
many friends who were faithful to
him to the last.
Judge Thomas was a mo9t ener
getic and active man, and withstood
the ravages of disease with remarkable
fortitude. Only a few days ago
he dictated a circular to the voters,
and even when his breath had almost
deserted him ho gave a list of those
to whom he desired tho circulars
mailed. While he realized the
seriousness of his condition, he ncv
erthclcss clung to Jifc tenaciously,
and died bravely.
The funeral will take place from
the First Christian church tomorrow
morning nt 10 o'clock, services by
Itev. V. II. Pinkcrtou. The burial
will bo at Oak Grove under the au
spices of the Masonic fraternity, of
which ho was a member.
The members of the Paducah bar
will meet in Major Moss' oillce at
9 o'clock tomorrow morning to takc
some action over the death of Judge
Thomas. All aro requested to at
