Appointment by Governor Patterson
to Court of Civil Appeals.
The announcement Monday that F.
W. Moore, of this city, had been ap
pointed to fill the vacancy on the bench
of the Court of Civil Appeals, caused by
the resignation of Judge Lamb, of
Pans, was received with unanimous ap
proval. . The intelligence was especially
agreeable to Governor Patterson 'swarm-
, est admirers, who have the utmost con
fidence in Judge Moore's abili ty to add
renown to the State courts.
Judge Moore's legal career is identi
cal with the largest measure of impor-
, taut litigati6n transpiring in this section
of the State for many years. He began
the practice of law in Union City in
Fior many years he was the law
partner of Major J. G. Smith, the Nes
tor of the county bar,' whose office was
.at Troy. . In 1S85 he formed a partner-
. ship .with John E. Wells," which con
tinued for eighteen years, considered
, generally one of the strongest law firms
in the Suite. After Mr.-Wells' death
Mr. Moore was associated in practice
by W. W. Cochran, afterwards with W.
E. Hudgins, both young practitioners.
- On different occasions Mr. Moore has
acted as special judge and judgero
tern, of, the Circuit Court. His legal re
tainers comprised some important bus
iness concerns in many of the large cit
ies, including the M. & O. Eailroad
Company, and his practice claimed at
tention in the State Supreme and Fed
eral Courts and in the Chancery and
Circuit Courts of this and other divi-
sions of Tennessee. - y ,
In. civic affairs Judge Moore has not
given a great deal of time, but' has
served the city in the capacity of Mayor
in one of the most acceptable and satis
factory administrations. .
In politics he has always been a Dem
ocrat, having never scratched the ticket
nor failed to support tne nomine
There lias never been a Democratic
State Convention which he did not at
tend as delegate from the county since
his majuiitv; and in 1888 he was elected
as a delegate from the Ninth Congres
sional Pistr.i f to the National Conven-.
tion ii'"- . . ting President Cleveland for
the se.-ui.-) lime.' , . '
JuJgeioore is not only a close.stu
I t, Taut his judgment is ripe and
. lirtd. As advocate his appeal for jus-1
i' i - -1 - i
nee is logical anu convincing, as coun
sel his entrenchments are in law and
fact, the interests of his clients encom
passed and guarded securely. A salient
point is the safety of his position, and
upon .these bases is formed a notable
career. In chancery practice he has
long held undisputed lead, and this is
the secret of his ultimate conquest of
legal procedure.
Judge Moore will give the bench
added dignity and respect, and there
are Hundreds of his friends and asso
ciates who heartily and thoroughly con
gratulate him.

On Jan. 24, 1909, the pearly gates of
Heaven stood ajar and the reaper Death
appeared in our midst to claim the spir
it of DeBow Crenshaw. Therefore, as
members of Beulah Sunday school, we
take this method of paying tribute to
his memory.
Resolved, That although his absence
from our midst brings sorrow and re
gret to us, there is comfort in knowing
that ho is now at rest, and we humbly
bow to Him who doeth all things well.
Resolved, That we cherish his mem
ory ana commend his qualities as a gen
tleman and his character as a boy wor
thy of imitation.
Resolved, That we may so discharge
our duties and live such Christian lives
that when the summons come we may
feel, as DeBow did, that "Heaven is
not far away. "
"Resolved, That a copy of these reso
lutions be recorded on our secretary's
book, copies sent to the Union City pa
pers and a copy to the bereaved family.
