r JUDGE SPEARS!
1 IS HONORED Barristers to Ad opt Resolution For 4, Decedent Members of the Cameron county J ®ar association were to meet in Sar. i Benito Tuesday morning and endorse j a re*°lution, drawn by a committee o' five selected at a meeting of the j association in San Benito at four Monday afternoon, honoring ’■he memory of Judge Spears, who died suddenly in that city Sunday ■fternoon. Ibe committee selected to write ‘he resolution included Judge A. V. Logan, San Benito, chairman; Harry L. baulk, Brownsville; Harbcrt Dav enport, Brownsville; and A. 1- Lewis *nd W. T. Carlton, both of Harlin gen. A number of Brownsville attorneys ?*ent to San Benito Tuesday morn lng to attend the bar association meeting and the funeral of Judge bpears. Ihe resolution to be adopted at Tuesday’s meeting follows: Kesolved, by the Bar of Cameron county in association assembled: 1. That in the passing of Judge •'aniurl Spears, the beloved dean of the Cameron county bar, Texas has mat one of its ablest jurists, Cam eron county one of its best and most Useful citizens, his friends and cli » *n’8 * ";ae and trusted counM-lIn and guide. 2. That we who knew him best. knew him as a sincere and earnest student of law, deeply versed in lexss procedure; as one of the few great title lawyers of Texas; as a careful, sound and painstaking advo ! cate, as a skillful, fair, conscientious and always respected opponent at the bar; and a loyal, generous friend. 3. That Satnuel Spears in his every perst-ial ana professional art was true to the admirable standards of the splendid generation of law yers now so rapidly passing; for r‘mm trial work was an art and a study; protection to his clients’ in terests to the sacrifice of his own a sacred duty; absolute fairness to the court and to his fellow lawyers, a thing of course: and passionate devotion to the cause he advocated a part of his daily life. 4. That in his office Samuel Spears was the safest and wisest of counsellors, and a careful and thor ough student, ripe not merely in the lore of books and precedent, but blessed with an innate ability to distinguish right from wrong; a splendid store of professional ex perience, and a cieas and sympathet ic understanding of every human problem. 5. Though his death has come to us as a profound shock, we are con soled by the thought that his passing came at the end of a useful, long and well spent life, and that he died as he would have wi-hed to die. without pain and in the midst of his day's work. 6. To his life companion, and to the daughters who were deservedly the pride of his later years, we ex tend in the hour of their bereavement the heartfelt sympathy of each and all of Judge Spears’ fellow workers of tha Cameron County Bar.
