Venerable Jurist Bids Farewell to
.Life' Surrounded by Family in
Washington, Oct. 14.-"Good-bre,
I am sorry I kept you all waiting so
long." With these words, Associate
Justicz' John M. Harlan, of the su
preine court of the United States, of
ten acclaimed the greatest constitu
tional authority of the day, once a
conspicuous figure in national and
Kentucky politics, and long a leader
in Presbyterian councils, passed
away early today. He had been ill
less than a week.
The famous jurist will be buried in
the National cemetery, at Arlington,
or at Rock Creek cemetery here, fol
lowing a service next Tuesday, at the
New York Avenue Presbyterian
church, of which he was an active
member. The supreme court will
take formal action on his death Mon
day and adjourn immediately as a
mark of respect.
Justice Harlan's great ambition was
to servo until next June, when he
would have exceeded the service of
any other man who sat on that bench.
As it was his service was longer than
that of any other justice except Chief
Justice Marshall and Associate Jus
tice Stephen G. Fields.
The career of Justice Harlan was
unique in the development of an ordi
nary county politician into one of the
greatest legal intellects of the day.
Justice Harlan was often acclaimed
the greatest constitutional authority
of his day. It was the late Justice
Brewer who said of him:
."I believe he retires at night with
one hand on the constitution and the
.other on the Bible, safe and happy in
a perfect faith in justice and right
Justice Harlan has the signal dis
tinction of going down to posterity as
a justice whose dissenting opinions
were more widely known than those
in which he joined with the majority
df the court.
With the death of Justice Harlan
the opportunity is given President
Taft 'to select during his single term
c$f office five memb.ers of the Supremi
curt bench, or a majority. In addi
Nion, President Taft has named 'the
~ief justice of the tribu.nal>

*G. Wham Administers Severe
Thrashing to W. E. Nash.
Clinton, Oct. 14.-The citizens of
Clinton were somewhat excited this
rorning when Mr. J. G. Wham admin
isatered a severe whipping to Mr. W. E.
Nash in front of the First National
a~nk in the heart of the city.
-For a long time, it is tated, there
as been a growing spirit of enmity
~tween these two men.
A few days ago Mr. Nash reported
Mr. Wham for hauling dirt out of the
public streets, and this morning the
mrayor of the town fined Mr. Wham $1
for this offence. This, it appears, in
f$riated Mr. Wham and a few minutes
later on meeting Mr. Nash in front of
the bank he drew his buggy whip,
arid on telling Mr. Nash that he was
* tired of his meddling with other peo
ple's business, began~ whipping him,
After striking him .twentyfive or thir
1ty times Mr. Wham took his buggy
and left immediately for his home.
Both of these citizens were summon-1
ea immediately to mayor's court. A
f of $75 or thirty. days on thechi
jng was iniposed upon Mr. Wham.

San Francisco, Oct. 12.-W:nal
suffrage has triumphed in Caliror

majority previously recorded against

So overwhelming was the, vote in

that tabulation of the returns was sus
