KNEW LINCOLN AND COOPER.
Intcrestinj Sketch of 'Squire L D. Cbaddoi
It is probably cot generally known
that 'Squire L. D. Chaddon of this
city has known and been intimately
acqdaiuted with some of the greatest
people of this century, but such is the
Born many years ago when the
ctntury was young when Lincoln
was but a lad of nine, and Gladstone
yet a stripling; when the soldiers of
the war of 1812-14 were almost as
fresh from the scenes cf war as are
now the heroes of Santiago he has
met and known some of the greatest
characters living in his time.
Mr. Chaddon was born in Coopers
town, New York, and when old
enough learned to be a carpenter.
The first work that he was ever sent
to do was to repair the yard fence of
James Fenimore Cooper, the great
novelUt, and many of the scenes and
places described by Cooper in his
"Leather btocking Tales" were
familiar to Mr. Chaddon In his boy
Before he was twenty years old he
moved to Utica, where he became
acquainted with Roscoe Conkling and
Horatio D. Seymour. lie often saw
Grover Cleveland, although he did
not knyw him well, but was well ac
quainted with Miss Rose Cleveland
(who was the lady of the White
House until Cleveland's marriage).
For a number cf years Mr. Cbadaon
worked at a planing mill a few mile
from Utica and was frequently visited
by Conkling and Seymour and the
three would often hunt together in
ile forests. Ia the fifties Mr. Chad
Ion moved to Champaign, 111., and
while living there held the office o
justice of the peace a part of the time
and at another time was deputy Bher
iff. In both positions he m .-t Abe
Lincoln frequently add heard him
tell many of bis quaint stones not
all cf which will do to print. While
David Davis was judge, Lincoln sat as
judge pro tern one evening and tried a
:asa in which Mr. Chaddon was plain
tiff. The case is mentioned in the
'Life of Lincoln" by William II.
nerndon, who was Lincoln's law
partner for twenty-five years. The
story is to be found in the second
volume, on page 318, and is as fol' jws:
"Several of us lawyers," remarked
one of his colleagues, "in the eastern
end of the circuit annoyed Lincoln
ones while he was holding court for
Davis by attempting todefend against
a cote to which there were many mak
ers. We had no legal, but a good moral
defense, but what we wanted most of
all was to stave it eff till the next
term of court by one expedient or
another. We bothered 'the court' till
lateen Saturday, the day of adjourn
ment. He adjourned for supper with
nothing left but this case to dispose
of. A'ter supper he heard our twad
dle for nearly an hour, and then made
this odd entry: 'L. D. Chaddon vs. J.
I). Beasly et a!, April term, 1S5G,
Champaign county court. Plea in
abatement by B. Z Green, a defend
ant not served, filed Saturday at U
o'clock a.m., April 24, ISjG, stricken
from the files by order of court. De
murrer to declaration, if there ever
was one, overruled. Defendants who
are served now, at 8 o'clock p m., of
liie last day of the term, ask to plead
to the merits, which is denied by the
court on the ground that the offer
comes too late, and therefore, a9 by
nil dicet, judgment is rendered for
plaintiff. Clerk assess damages. A.
Lincoln,' Judge pro tern.'
"The lawyer who reads this singular
entry will appreciate its oddity if
nobody else does. After making it,
one of the lawyers, on recovering from
his astonishment, ventured to in
quire, 'Wen, Lincoin, how can we
get this case up again?' Lincoln
eyed him quizzically a moment, and
then answered, 'You have all been so
ciichtv smart about this case, vou
can find out how to take it up again

Mr. Barrett will be remembered in
Wellington as "the Jail sycamore of
the Arkansas." He studied law under
W. W. Schwinn, and married Miss
Eva Benton of Wellington.
