OUEEN REMARKS BY JLIK1K I). J. RAKER
IN OKDKKlNd THE l'ROCEEDINOS OF THE
MEETINQ SI'11E1) VPON TIIK RECORDS OF
It is fitting and proper that tho bar of
Cairo should pay just tributo to the mem
ory of Sidney Breese, who took so deep an
interest In tho welnr0 of this city since its
infancy.. He, together vith Hon. I). J
Baker, Sr., deceased, and lion. Miles A.
Gilbert were the parties who originally en
tered a portion of the lands of the present
sito of Cairo and beyond our present lim
its. Breese and Gillbcrt entered those
lands along the Ohio river, abovo a point
say where the stone depot now stands,
while Judge Baker entered lands along the
Mississippi river beyond the present corpor
ation line.. But while Cairo was always an
especial favorite with the lamented dead,
tho whole of Southern Illinois came in for
a large share of his affection. As early as
1838, in a letter dated Mound Farm, Clin
ton county, 111., addressed to Samuel II.
Davis, Esq., editor of tho Peoria Register,
he defended with some warmth the climate
of Southern Illinois, "to its extreme
point," against slenderous reports. He said:
I have lived in Southern Illinois, now
''twenty years and am well acquainted w ith
its climate, and my observation and ex
perience anthorze me to say to you, that
your remark quoted above is not true.
This part of III' no's and to the extreme
point, is decided'- healthy. Particular sit
uations i'urnish cscentions. Du'ing this
last season, while disease sialked uncheck
ed through the northern section of the state,
and death visited almost eveiy dwelling,
the South was comparatively healthy.
The Southern pai t of this state has suffered
long enough from misrepreserta ions, vnin-
tentional no doubt, li'Le those contained in
your letter; pnd as I ft el a deep interest in
its prosperity, it ha'ng Wen ihe home of
my boyhood, and erdcared to me by the
most affecting reco''cctiors, I, for one, will
correct them whenever an opportuniiy
offers. V'thout making any comparisons
between the south and north, I must take
leave to say, tint in every thing calculated
to advance the'itcicstso happiness of man,
the south is not behind, in any one particu
lar, your own boasted north, rich and
lieautiful as it unquestionably is. I have
to request that you will publish th!s -n
your next paper."'
Pursuant to notice the bar met at the
court-house at n!ic o'clock yesterday
The following mcmlcrs were present:
Judge D. J. Baker, Messrs. 8. S. Taylor, J.
II. Mulkey, W. II. Green. D. T.

Gilbert, J. M. Lansden, W. C. 3Iulkey,

Angus Leek, John Q. Hurman.
The meeting was duly organized by the
elecion of J J udge John H. Mulkey chairman,
and Mr. John Q. Ilarman secretary.
Judge Green moved that a committee of
three be appointed to report resolutions ex
pressive of the sense of the meeting on the
death of Judge Sidney Breese.
The motion was carried and the Chair ap
pointed Judge Green, and Mesirs. S. P.
Wheeler and D. T. Linegar as such com

through its chairman, reported the follow

THE DAILY CAIRO BULLETIN:
and a jurist, ho has honored our noble
State, in tho senate chamber of the na
tion, nnd upon tho bench of her highest
judicial tribunal. In all the
positions he has ever filled, ho
has brought to the discharge of his official
duties, a master intellect, a firm determina
tion to do right, and a will strong enough
to carry into execution that which ho be
lieved to be right. Ho was not a seeker
after place, yet tho peoplo elected him, and
the best evidence of their confidence in him
as a man and a lawyer is found in the fact
that he was upou the bench twenty-nine
years, eight upon the circuit, and twenty
one upon the supreme lench. He served a
full term as United States senator, ending
in 184!), and was speaker of tho house of
representatives of this statu in 18.T0. But
why speak of these things? History has re
corded nnd will record them. We come to
day, as his friends, to speak more especially
ofjthese qualities which? he possessed that
endeared him to us as a man md ns a
friend; to touch those tender chords,
reaching to-day from the far beyond, buck
to our hearts, wakening memories of the
virtues of him who has crossed tho mystic
river. The deeds of his public life may
be chronicled by the unfeeling pen f the
historian, but to us who knew something
of his heart's life, there springs a desire to
pay a better tribute to his memory.
Nearly twenty years ago it was my priv
ilege to become acquainted with Judge
Breese, and though he belonged to one
generation, and I to another, there sprang
up a friendship between us that continued
to his death. I forgot while enjoying his
society that vs was an old man and I a
young, and I believe he forgot it, too. His
feelings were always youthful. He was
fond of the sX'iety of the young, and his
heart never seemed to grow old.
The young man ever found in him a firm
friend, and here to-day I wish to bear testi
mony to the fact, and in doing so I feel as
sured I will find a hearty indorsement from
every young man in the State, that one of
the crowning virtues of Judge Breese 's
life, was his uniform kindness and courtesy
to young lawyers. I remember well the
first argument I made in the supreme
court, how, like oil on the troubled waters,
came tho kind words of encouragement
rom J udge B reese when I was weighed down
with the fear that I had made a total fai'-
urc. lie never seemed to forget that he
was once a young man, and the trials and
vicissitudes through which the young
lawyer is called to pass were never forgot
ten I iy him. I shall ever hold him in grate
ful remembrance for his kindness to me,
and in this feeling I know I am not alone.
Three weeks ago to-day I was with him at
Mount Vernon. The interview did not im
press mo then as it las since the ead tidings
of his death reached me. As I now look at
it, I think he had a premonition of death.
He spoke of it, and I remem
ber that he said ''I want to die
with my harness on." Yes, grand old man,
to die as he had t'ved.
"That man Uvea tfrcully.
Whate'cr bin fate or fame who greatly dlep."
Judge Breese died greatly. He la
bored in his official position up to al
most the hour of his death. His towering
intellect bowed not till the pulses ceased
to beat. With him the lamp of life did
not flicker and faintly die away, but was
extinguished in an instant.
"The ("a s of our years are t' TO so re
years and ten; and if by reason of strength
they I four score years, yet is their
strength labor and sorrow ; for it is soon
cut off, and we fly aw a."
Judge Breese hud nearly reached the
four score years. That he lived to such a
ripe old age, and retained all the mental
vigor of his middle life up to the day of his
death is remarkable in this western country.
I believe that his indomitable will added
years to his life. He has come to his
grave, in a full age, like a shock of corn
cometh in, in his season.
As a friend, Judge Breese never
disappointed anyone. It cannot be said of
him that he was a friend to all mankind,
I would not say it of him if I could. We
lose that opportunity of measuring man's
affection by contrast if all are treated alike.
There may be hearts large enough, and
warm enough to take in the whole race,
but it seems to nie that friendship in suth
a case would be no virtue. He was a
courteous man under all circumstances,
and as I think of him to-day with all the
manners of tho old time gentleman, I
mourn again that the last link in the chain
which Ixmnd us to that school of man has
been broken, Those who were his compan
ions sixty yearsago lire I believeallgone and
in the death of Judge Breese at this time,
we have suffered en additional loss, us lie
hud fn preparation, reminiscences of early
life 'n Ill'nois before it became a state, but
I trust it is 'n such an advanced state that
it may yet be given to the public.
I should perhaps speak of the deceased
as a Judge. In this position I first saw him,
and throughout my entire aeiiuaiiilunce
with him he was judge of the supreme1
court. He was not a judge wedded to old
notions. He did not believe that to follow
precedenlf was better than to think. His
opinions are huructerizeil by a style pecu
liarly his own. Always forcible, and in
many Instances so beautiful Iy w ritten that
the reader imagines himself reading of
fancy rather than fuel. He has, in iw
twenty-one years he has been upon the
supreme Iwuch, come fully up to the expec
tlons of the bar. This is perhaps saying all
that could be said. It is tnt ! that many
good Judges do not do so, but il is also true
TUESDAY MORNING, JULY 2, 1878,
that of nothing less than a good judge can
this be said. It is not necessary to say
that he was a pure man. If his integrity
was ever questioned I never heard of it
Judge Breese has lived longer,
practically, than Beventy-eight years. With
him life was one grand problem. He devotee
more hours in every twenty-four to this so-
lution than men usually do. With him
life was always earnest. I never knew him
to bo idle. In his death we have sustained
a great loss. As lawyers, wo have lost a
friend. The people havo lost an able, con
scientious judge. This stroke is both a
puhlic andprivato calamity. He is dead;
but what is death? kingdoms and emper
ors pass away. Generation after genera
tions goes out into the dark valley of the
1. P .V....1. 1...
BiuiuuiT iii iicaui, imi mere is
an immortal part of man
that never dies. Midst all the decay and
the ever lading away of life, let us not for
get this. The flesh, that is but the aljode
of the immortal nature, has truly returned
to the dust from whence it comes; but the
spirit that shall never die, has returned to
God who gave it.
"Death t the crown of life;
Wero deuth denied, poor man would live In vain.
Dealh wounds to cure; we fall, wc rlne, we reii
Npriiutfrom our fetter, fasten to the eklea.
Where hloomlnt! Eden withers from our nlbt,
Thin king of terrors ti the priuce of peace."
Mr. D. T. Linegar followed and said
I wish to add a few words to what has been
so truthfully and eloquently said by Mr.
Wheeler. 1 came to Illinois in 1858;
located at Fairfield, in Wayne county, in
(he practice of the law. Among the first
things that attraced my attention in the re
ports of tho supremo court of the state
were opinions written by Judge Breese.
His opinions appeared to me peculiar in
style und forcible in thought. I had never
seen Judge Breese, and knew nothing of
his character. I was anxious to learn
something of the character of
the nun whose opinions had
so readily challenged my admiration. Ed
win Beecher was the judge of the Twelfth
judicial circuit and resided at Fairfield. He
had just returned from 31 1. Vernon w hero
he had been in attendance upon the
supreme court. I called upon him and
said to him : "Judge, I have been forcibly
struck with opinions in our reports deliver
ed by Judge Breese and I have called to
learn something of the character of the
author." - He said to me: "Mr. Linegar,
Judge Breese is a great man, and w hen you
meet him you will fuel that you are in the
presence of human greatness."
Shortly attcrthat I had the good fortune to
meet ami make the personal acquaintance
of Judge Breese. He was at that time
chief justice of our supreme court. A per
sonal acquaintance only increased my ad
miration of the man. I found him a mon
arch in mind, a citizen in his associations.
From that time up to the time of his death
I met him frequently, only to admire him
the more. He was a great man great in
thought, great in experience, observation
and action. He was a warm companion, a
devoted friend, and especially the friend of
the young man.
I had the good fortune and pleasure to
le present and hear his address to members
of the class admitted at the last term of the
supreme court at Mount Vernon. It Is
pleasant to read that address, but it was a
much greater pleasure to hear it delivered
by its author. That was the last time I
ever saw Judge Breese. Sidney Breese is
dead, but Judge Breese still lives and will
continue to live so long as we Bhall have a
state and judiciary.
Mr. W. B. Gilbert said:
In moments like the present, w hen as
sembled to do honor to the memory of a
great, good and distinguished limn such a
man as Mr. Justice Breese words lost their
power and vi-mcd inadequate to do justice
to the occasion; that what had been said
by Mr. Wheeler and Mr. Lansden but re
echoed his own sentiment of the eminent,
honored judge, whose death was mourned
by the entire profession; that he heartily
endorsed eveiy wad that hud been spoken;
and, born himself in the old town of Kas
kaskia, the early Lome of Judge Breese. he
had known the deceased from hisearlychih'
luxsl his fu her and his g andfaiher before
him had lcen the curly friends and acquui: .

Breese lied given him uiion their first meet
