TUPELO, MISS , OCT. 6. 1911
JUDGE ANDERSON RESIGNS.
The announcement Tuesday
that Judge Anderson had re
signed as Associate Justice of
the Supreme Court, came as a
distinct surprise to his most inti
mate friends. While the Judge
had contemplated this step, he
was not fully satisfied in his own
mind of taking it until Tuesday.
His letter to Governor Noel,
which appears elsewhere, gives
his reasons for resigning.
During his term on the bench
Judge Anderson displayed his
talents as a profound lawyer and
a jurist that compares favorably
with the most distinguished men
of our Supreme Court. His mind
has a judicial turn and is cap
able of that close analysis which
distinguishes lawyers. His rec
ord compares with the most
learned as our Supreme Court
Judges, and his decisions will be
held as the law of the land with
Jutjge Anderson was in actual
service on the Supreme Court
bench a little over eleven months.
During that time he wrote about
Qfne hundred and thirty opinions
of the court, some of which were
in cases involving new and im
portant questions. He wrote the
opinion in the case of the State
vs. -Grenada Lumber Co., which
resulted in the dissolution of the
lumber trust. He also wrote the
opinions of the court in the cases
of the state vs. the Cumberland
Telephone and Telegraph Co.,
and state vs. Winconsin Lumber
Co. In the former case, the
state sought to recover from the
Cumberland Telephone Company
a large sum in penalties for an
alleged violation of the anti
trust laws. The state failed in
its contention. In the Wisconsin
Lumber Company case, the state
sought to recover from the Lum
ber Company something like one
hundred thousand acres of land.
The judgment of the lower Court
in favor of the state was re
versed, the Supreme Court hold
ing that the Lumber Company
had a good title. He wrote the
opinion of the Court, holding Jas
unconstitutional, an ordinance of
Itawamba county, prohibiting
nonresidents from fishing in the
waters of that county. Many
other counties in the state were
affected by this decision. He
wrote the opinion of the Court,
upholding the constitutionality oi
a statute passed by the last leg
islature, abolishing contributory
negligence as a defense to suit!
for personal injuries.
One of the most promineni
lawyers in the state recently re
marked that no Judge had beer
on the bench in recent yean
who had written so many impor
tant opinions in so short a time
as Judge Anderson.
A large majority of the mem
bers of the bar of the state, pe
titioned Governor-elect Brewer
to reappoint Judge Anderson foi
a full nine years term. Tc
show the estimation in which he
was held by the bar at Jackson,
the largest in the state, and one
of the ablest in the country, out
of about one hundred lawyers
ninety-seven petitioned for his
Rpar Admiral .Winfield Scott
Schley, retired, fell dead on the
streets of New York Monday,
his sudden death being attributed
to cerebral hemorrhage. The
admiral’s health had been good
and his death was wholly unex
pected. Admiral Schley was
placed in command of what was
known as the flying squadron
during the Spanish American
war in 1898 and destroyed the
Spanish navy at the battle of
Santiago, which virtually ended
the war. The navy depart
ment, at Washington, however,
failed to recogjiize the victory as
his and refused him promotion
to a full admiralship. The pub
lic, both north and south, how
ever, did not fail to honor him as
the hero of Santiago, and his
place in the naval history of his
country will be among her fore
most sea fighters.
Francisco Madero was elected
president of Mexico Sunday by
practically a unanimous vote.
Gen. Madero’s troubles will be
gin when he assumes the reins
of government over his turbu
lent, ignorant countrymen who
have grown restive under the
restraint of the Diaz regime of
The Italian-Turkish war is the
latest excitement for newspaper
reporters. We read one day of
the sinking of battleships and
cruisers, and the next day that
the war will be bloodless.
Don’t Believo It.
A French traveler who baa been
in the elephant country of Africa says
that when an elephant has the tooth
ache another elephant makes a loop la
a vine and acta aa dentist to pull the
tooth. Don't you believe anything of
the kind. He tells him to go over
to the nearest railroad and let a
freight train knock it out.
