'J4 -The announce ment of the death of Justine Peckham, while expected, came as a shock to his associates on the bench and hi official circles, and everywhore ex presslons of regiet were heard. Justice Peckham was a democrat nnd before taking a seat on tho bench gave considerable attention to politics In New York, und had been on the bench. Slate and federal, for 26 years. He was the last of Presi dent Cleveland' democratic appointees to the federal Supreme Court. Chief Justice Fuller nnd Justice White be ing the other two. He took his stul In January, 1S9C. His chief distinction wns that of Blvlntf his time exclusively to the duties of the court. Ifo accepted no outside appointments and undertook no work not connected with the high tribunal of which he was a member. He was In constant attendance on th court and he gave the most careful Httentlon to nil matters before It. He wns married but went little Into so ciety. Unlike others of the Justices he accepted no Invitations to public functions, and made no public nd drcsres after taking his seat n& n Jus tlco. Judga Pcckham's bearing was rV-tln-jrulshed and Ids manner affable. Ho was nn sgreeublo and entcrtnlnluR con versationalist and highly populc.r with his associates. When the news of Justice Peckham's death was broken to the surviving mem bers of the supreme court to-nlttht, all of them appeared to bo deeply affected, Chief Justice Fuller had retired when word was conveyed to him, but he ex pressed his sorrow and said thnt tho passing of Justice Peckham was a severe loss to the American bench. .hutlce Harlan was overcome with emotion. "It la a treat loss to the country," he said "Justice Peckham was one of tho ablest Juilsts who ever sat on tho Amer ican bench. He was absolutely puro In mind and thought and free from every thlnif that would prevent htm fiom ren dciliiK an honest ludginent In uny case brought before him. Cases Invoking the lights of corpora tions received especial consideration at Justice Peckham's hand, and ho was tho author of some of the court's most note worthy opinions of recent date along this line, Among them may be mentioned tho case of the Consolidated Gas company of New York In which he held thnt while rates fixed by the Legislature, must allow u fair return on lnslment federal rouits could not declare them Invalid un less they were so unreasonably low us to be confiscatory, One result of that de cision was to cause the return of several million dollaiH of ovei charges to users of gaa in New York city, Heveial of Mr. Peokhaiu'B corporation decisions dealt with the Sherman anti trust law us applied to railroads, Theso Included the Joint truffle nd thn trans Missouri cases In both of which he held the law to be applicable, He also piopared nnd delivered the opinion of the court In the rase of Attorney-nenernl Youiy of Minnesota In which It wns held tY- tho federal ("juris; could Interfere with tho execution by tho State court oi an un due Fanner t-liol J nrd liol tier Ills COM'M.
