Below is given the remarks ot Judge
Robert Aldricli, on the occasion of the
memorial exercises held June 20 In
the Linnens court, in Honor of Judge
('lias. (1. Dantzler of Orangeburg. As
stated last week, appropriate address
es were made by the different me in

His Honor Robert Aldricli .presiding
While l should not have been un
prepared to hear of the death ol
Judge Dantzler, I was. as a matter ol
fact, very much shocked this morning
when I was informed that be bad pass
ed away. We have all known for some
months that he was III, and but recent
ly 1 was informed that his illness was
Of a fatal character, and yet it is hard
to realize thai the career of one who
has tilled so large a place in public
observation and public useiuluess,
The life and character of Charles
0. Dantzler ought to be written by
some one gifted in that line and held
up as an object lesson to the youth
of South Carolina. 11? I had a son
to rear and educate, I do not know a
man whose example I would advise
him to follow any sooner than I would
When I was much younger than I
am now, at the beginning of my pro
fessional life, like most young men
and young lawyers 1 worshiped at the
Shrine of intellect. 1 tried to pattern
my life after the grent orators and the
y brilliant jurists and the profound
judges of the world. 1 have lived long
enough to know that that is a mistake.
The men who reap the richest rewards
and enjoy the highest happiness, are
men of modorate endownmonts, but
who are true to themselves and de
velop themselves to the highest ot
their capacity. Such a man was ('has.
G. Dantzler. He was a man of decided
ability, in my Judgment, of the very
highest order of ability. He bad the
ability to do right at all times and
under all circumstances -to think
right, to act right, and to walk up
rightly in all the relations of life.
The consequence was that be com
manded the respect and the confidence
of those who knew him host, and when
? was known that the .Tudgo of the
First Circuit, about eight years ago.
wouKl not stand for ic-oloction, Judge
Dantzler was the unanimous choice of
the Bar of thai circuit. And thai is
al! that the legislature wanted to
.know, lie could have been elected
iiv the legislature without the endorse
ment of the Bar, but when those in
the general assembly who had a pref
erence for him learned also that be
was endorsed by the entile liar of the
1 First Circuit be passed into office
without opposition. And it was not
long before we all saw that no mis
take had been made.
.ludge Dantzler and myself lived in
adjoining counties, and we practiced
I together to some extent, sometimes
on the same side, sometimes on oppo
site sides, and I do not think I ever
saw a truer mind than his a mind
I capable of reasoning correctly from
premises to conclusion. And. while
mctapliasiclans may not agree with me
I believe that his ability to reason
(correctly is explained by the fact that
he always tried to reason rightly.
I It is very gratifying to me. ami will
i be to the lawyers in our part of the
Stale, and to the bar of Orangebtirg
and to his family, to know that at this
I distance from bis borne he was so
highly valued and so much appreei
Von are making no mistake, breth
ren, to think well of your judiciary
while they live, ami the consciousness
that they will receive your meed of
praise when they are gone, if they
deserve it, strengthens their arms and
holds up their hands in their efforts
to serve you and to serve their people.
None of us can stay here long, but all
I of us can act rightly, to the best of
our human ability, what time we do
I slay here, and the knowledge that we
j will be appreciated by those whose
I good opinions we value, is very com
forting and very sustaining.
I will order the preamble mid reso
lutions spread upon the journal of
the court, that a copy of them be en
grossed and forwarded by the clerk
to the family of Judge Dantzler. and
that they he published, together with,
the remarks on this occasion, in the
papers of f..aureus county, and of Co
lumbia and Charleston, and that in
honor of the memory of the Hon.
Charles (',. Dantzler. deceased, that
this court be adjourned sine die.

"Step, I.(ink and Listen."
i From the Washington Star.)
Podestrnins are slowly hut steadily
learning the lesson thai before they
step oft the curb they must "stop, look
and listen," in accordance with the
old fundamental doctrine of law gov
erning the responsibility of individuals
: when approaching a potential source
of danger such as a railroad crossing.
It should not be necessary for the
motorist to sound a horn to let any
body know of his presence in the
neighborhood. Of course occasionally
conditions develop when such a warn
ing is required, such as when a car
suddenly conies out from behind a
screen of other vehicles, and Which
it is overtaking, or at some congest
ed crossings. Yet with everybody toot
ing at once the value of the warning
of each horn is dimishcd.
Unless some check is put upon tie
volume or character of the sound pro
duced by the auto horns pandemonium
wiii quickly ensue. There is now a
large premium awaiting the man who
can invent some new form of shocker,
SCreecher, howler or other arrester ot
attention, and at the |ircsonl rate ol
progress our streets will soon be a
bedlam of hideous sounds, with pedes
trians more confused and in greater
danger than ever unless limy rely
