Copyright, 1902, by Champ Clark.
A just judge is an honor to the hu
man race. An unjust judge Is a scourge
to his kind. Of ull the Englishmen that
ever lived with whose names history
concerns herself Jeffreys, the wicked
and brutal judge, is the most thorough
Justice tempered with mercy Is the
Ideal administration of the judicial
function. It appeals to the heart.
Judge Rogers of the United States
court for the western district of Ar
kansas served In congress many years,
where he built up a splendid reputa
tion as a Btutessmau, putriot and fili
buster. Indeed, he fuirly rivaled
"Buck" Kllgore of Texas in fertility of
resources and in audacity of execution
when it cnnie to harassing Speaker
Thomas Braekett Keed with filibuster
lug tactics. It Is rather a striking co
incidence that those two brilliant and
dashing parliamentary guerrilla chief
tains should graduate out of congress
on to the federal bench, but such Is the
truth of history. His honor Constan
tino Buckley Kllgore Is In his grave.
Let us hope ttiat "after life's fitful fe
ver he Bleeps well." Judge Rogers
has not only had a flourishing city
named for him an everlasting monu
mentbut, In prize ring parlance, he
appears to be In "the pink of condi
tion," both mentally and physically.
Humane Act of a Judge.
Not long since while lecturing at the
Fort Smith Chautauqua I noticed In a
local paper the following anecdote,
which deserves the widest circulation:
"Yesterday Judge Rogers added an
other act to the register of his human
ity, and, while such things with him
are common, his last concession has ex
cited more than ordinary favorable
"While holding court In Texarkana
he sentenced Ike Williams to the jail
here for 60 days and imposed a fine of
$100. Yesterday Colonel Du Val was
handed a letter received by Williams
from his brother saytng that one of
Ike's little ones was at the point of
death. Colonel Du Val brought the
matter to the attention of Judge Rog
ers, who held a short consultation with
District Attorney Barnes, after which
Williams was released unconditionally
that he might go to the bed of his sick
" 'It was an act of humanity for
which Judge Rogers deserves great
credit,' was the c6mment of Colonel
Du Val as he related the story."
One of the most pleasant recollec
tions of my long career as a prosecut
ing officer is that while I convicted 76
persons of felonies and nearly a thou
sand of misdemeanors I let off with a
fine or jail sentence 20 young men
charged with their first offense whom
I could have sent to the penitentiary.
Twenty-five of them are useful citi
zens. The twenty-sixth waa Incorrigi
ble, and my successor In office sent him
to state prison.
Enduring Monuments to Statesmen.
One of the finest and best known
poems of Horace begins with the fa
Exegl monunientum lert pennnius,
which being freely translated means, "I
have reared for myself a monument
more lasting than brass." His proud
boast was true. He rendered his name
Immortal. Marble and bronze will
perish at last. The most enduring mon
ument a man can have In this country
perhaps Is to have a county or city or
town named for him. Men may come
and men may go, but these go on for
ever, as a rule Increasing In Importance
with the lapse of years. We are much
given to fixing the names of popular
favorites upon counties, towns, town:
ships and schoolhouses. Only one
American worthy, Washington, has a
state named for him. There was once
an ephemeral state of Franklin where
Tennessee now Is. Unless It Is literally
true that republics are ungrateful, the
state which Is to be made one day out
of the Indian Territory will be called
Jefferson, lie certainly deserves such a
monument, and this Is the last chance
to give It to him, as the Indian Terri
tory Is the only remnant of the magnifi
cent domain which he added to the
Union and which made us a veritable
world power.- The poet says of Jef
ferson and the Louisiana territory:
His name' la written on the mountain;
Ull memory sparkles o'er the fountain.
The meanest rill, the mightiest liver, .
Holla mingling with hit (am forever.
That is poetic license. The Idea
should be realized by naming a great
state for him, the only redheaded pres
ident we ever had. Old John Adams
spoke the simple truth of Jefferson
when be said, "He Is cunning with his
pen." That was, however, only half
the truth, for we may truly say of him
what Frederick the Great said of bis Il
lustrious ancestor, the great elector,
"This man did great things." Roscoe
Collating In nominating General Grant
at Chicago for a third term voiced the
same idea when he said of him, "Ills
I fame rests not alone upon thing writ
; ten and upon things spoken, but upon
the arduous greatness of things done."
, That sentence likewise may be applied
, to Jefferson without exaggeration or
, bed taste.
