Mr. Gcisler was admitted to
practice iu 1884 and since 1889 has
practiced iu Portland. His nrivate
and public life have shown that he
places principle and justice above
all. One instance of this which
heretofore received public mention,
is Ids withdrawal from a profitable
litigation rather than use his efforts
as an attorney to induce the court to
declare as unconstitutional n whole
some law regulating the hours of
labor of women.
Mr. Gcisler is a man of high
ideals, well qualified iu ability and
temperament for the office of judge
and may be trusted to carry out his
belief iu "Sensible, impartial justice,
fearlessly and speedily admiuit
tered." This is published by William C.
