Palatka News Feb 27 1902
The decision of Judge Milton R
Mabry to retire from the supreme
bench of the state has brought out
the names of many other distin
guished jurists of Florida for the va
cant place The News believes it
voices the sentiment of the people
of Putnam county in naming as their
candidate Judge W A Hocker late
circuit judge but now an aide to the
supreme court as one of its commis

and a man of judicial attainments
which peculiarly fit him for the work
His home is Ocala but he is without
doubt the first choice of Putnam
county democrats

Judge Hocker one of the ablest and

his decisions he is impartial and in

Punta Gorda Herald
The editor of The Herald has
known Judge William A Hocer
since 1873 when he went from Vir

1876 Mr Hocker removed to Sumter
county Florida and the next year
this writer followed him thither
During these twentynine years
the relation of the two has been that
of warm friends which was but the
natural result of Mr Hockers lofty
character To know him well is to
become attached to him Being a
thorough scholar a highbred Chris

peachable integrity no one who
comes in close contact with him can
fail to admire him It was these
characteristics that caused his pea
