The subject of this memoir was born
home in Leon, surrounded by- her fain?
ily, on December 26, 1900. The day
which commemorated the advent of the
8avior into the world heralded the ad'
vent of her spirit into the saints' ever
lasting rest. She came ,to America at
the age of nine years. She was married
to William Wallace January 20, 1868.
She was the mother of five children,
two sons and three daughters, Mary E.
Cesslar, Thomas Wallace, Sallie C. Beck,
Ida Wallace and Ira Wallace, all of
whom survive her. For many years
she had been a patient sufferer, but bore
it in a spirit of resignation, her appoint
ed lot. She had a simple and child like
faith in the promises and goodness of
God. It seemed to be her native ele
ment to trust God's word. She was
woman of strong natural afiection, and
endeavored to discharge the duties fail'
ing to her in the fear of God. until the
weary wheels of life stood still. She
leaves a devoted liuBband, and all her
sorrowing children to mourn her loss,
and who have the respect and sympa
thy of the entire community. She
wore the white flower of a blameless
life, and has passed into thej presence of
God. Peace be to her memory. The
funeral service was held at thie home,
where an appropriate^ address was giv
en by Rev. Joseph Stephen, pastor of
the M. E. church.

Supreme Court Placed In a Pecul
^lar Position j.
The Tltua Amendment, If Upheld, will
extend the Terma of Judge* fllvan.
Waterman and Sherwtn for One
Year Each.
While they were committing that leg
islative tragedy, the Titus biennial
amendment, the lawyers also bungled it
upso that its constitutionality cannot
be tested except by a court one-half of
whose members are directly -interested
in its fate.
An important phase of the determina
tion of the validity of the measure by
the supreme court bas hitherto- .been
passed over without attention or refer-.
ence. While much has been said of the
terms of office that would be affected by
the amendment, it has not been gener
ally considered the amendment would,
if held valid, extend for one year each
the terms of three judges of the supreme
court, or half the judges on the supreme
The judge* whose terms will be ex
tended if the amendment is held valid
are Judge Josiah Given, whose term,
would otherwise end December 31,1901
Judge CharleB M.' Waterman, whose
term will expire December 31, 1903, and
Judge John C. Sherwin, whose term will
end December 81, ItiOfc Thpir terms
are extended directly, as the following
sentence of the biennial elections: meas
ure indicates:
The terms of office of the judges of
the supreme court which would other
wise expire in odd numbered years, and
all other elective state, county and
township officers whose terms of office
would otherwise expire in the year 1901,
and members of the general assembly,
whose successors would otherwise bp
chosen at the general election in the
vear 1901, are hereby extended one
year and until their successors are
elected and qualified.','
Even without this provision, how
ever, the tact of having biennial elec
tions would result in extending the
termsof those judges of the.supreme
conrt whose successors would ordinarily
be chosen in tbe odd numbered years,
since without any election in the odd
numbered years^each judge whose suc
cessors would ordinarly be chosen then
would remain in office until after the
election in November of the even nwn
bered year.
So far as the judges of the supreme
court are concerned, the fact three terms
are thus extended cannot but prove em
barrassing in considering the Titus
amendment. Ordinaril y, udge. Given,
Judge Waterman and Judge Sherwin
would be disqualified from passing on
the validity of the ame ndment. By the
mutual consent of the parties to the ac
tion, however, they may take part.
Section 284 of the revised code under
general provisions says:
"When Judge Disqualified.—A judge
or justice is disqualified from acting as
such, except by mutal consent of par
ties, in any case wherein he is,a party or
interested, or where he is related to
either party by consanguinity or affinity V.
within the fourth degree, or where he
has been attorney for either party in
the action or proceeding. But. this sec-.
tion shall not prevent him from dispos
ing of any preliminary matter not af
fee ting the merits of the case."
That it would be most satisfactory to
the people of the 'state if a decision were
rendered on Ithe Titus amendment by
only those judgeB who are not person
ally interested in the. measure-goes with-,
out saying, This is not poesji!e, how
^rer« it requires lour Judges of the tixsi
constituting the supreme court to fcifif*
a quorum, Section 193 of the reyispt
code of 1897 says: "The supreme courtv f.#/J
shall consist of six judges, four of whoktt-Uff
shall constitute a quorum for the trans
action of business, but one alone may
adjourn from day to day, or to a partife-:
ular day, or until the next term."
Not only are four judges required in
form a quorum, but four must concur 1n
order for a decision to have force. Sec
tion 194 ot the code say?: "No decision
of the court shall be filed un'tU it shall
have been considered by the whole court
and concurred in by not less'than a Ma
jority of the judges/' «i
Were the BUit other than a friendly
one, that is coming up from the district
court of Washington county, to bring
about an early uecisioU on the Tittiis
amendment, the probabilities are thevu
pretne court, would be shut out ot hearing
and determining it. It is apparent .if/ .,
the amendment is to be pawed on"by
the supreme court, it will require 'the
concurrence of at least four judges, 'one
of them being directly interested in the
case. It is probable the two attorneys
in Washington county, being personal
friends, will-agree to overlook such dis
qualifications. Were the suit unfriendly,
then by objecting to.the disqualifications
of the three judges named above, ei|her
party to the action could at once Pre
vent the supreme court from 'passing on
the case, and thus force the decision of
the lower court to stand. A decision
such as this, however, would have no
effect outside of the particular case it in
volved. t~ v.
The circumstances are unfortunate for
those members of the supreme court
whose terms are extended by the
amendment. They, or at least som'e of
thefn, must take part in the decision, or
the question will remain undetermined.
If a decision shall be rendered upholding
the validity of the amendment, by
reason of the pod tion taken by judges
whose terms are extended, they at 'once
place themselves in position open to
criticism. The situation is undoubtedly ...
one of the most peculiar thftt ever ^on
fronted the supreme court of the state,
and it may prove, as some believe, a
contributing cause to knocking out the
amendment completely.,
