body during the trial of Andrew John
son. On his return from Washington Mr.
Mallory resumed the practice of law.
In 1872 he was elected to represent
Marlon County in the General Assem
bly and was chosen Speaker of the
President Grant appointed him United
States District Attorney and h was
reappointed by President Hayes, con
tinuing in office from 1874 to 1882. After
this he had a Government appointment
at Singapore, Asia, after which he took
a trip around the world. .
Returning to Oregon in 188S, Mr. Mal
lory began the practice of law as a
member of the firm of Dolph, Bellinger,
Mallory & Simon-- When Mr. Bellin
ger was appointed United States Dis
trict Judge by President Cleveland, he
was succeeded by Judge Strahn, and
the firm name became Dolph, Mallory,
Simon & Strahn. After Judge Strahn's
death Mr. Simon was elected to the
United States Senate and the name of
Oearin was then added to the Arm.
Impression Ieft on Courts.
Judge Mallory's connection with the
legal profession has left an impression
on the record of Oregon's courts. He
has been connected with much of the
important litigation tried in Portland
and the state. For years he was coun
sel for several railroad corporations. He
at one time was president of the Ore
gon State Bar Association, of which
he was a charter member. He was
actively interested in the Columbia
River & Northern Railroad project. He
was a director and attorney for the
City & Suburban Railroad Company
and for the United States National
He built and owned the Hotel Mallory
at Lownsdale and Yamhill streets and
owned the ground on which" the Rail
way Exchange building was erected
under a long lease. He was associated
in practice with a brilliant coterie of
legal talent. Before he became a mem
ber of the firm of Mitchell & Dolph both
of these attorneys had served as mem
bers of the United States Senate. Mr.
Simon and Sir. Gearin both served in
the United States Senate.
ROHbnn Laid Out By Him.
While living in Roseburg Mr. Mallory
was married to Miss Lucy Rose, a na
tive of Michigan, a daughter of Aaron
Rose, who came to Oregon in 1851. He
1k4 dout the town of Roseburg on a part
of a tract of land of 320 acres upon
which he settled.
Judge Mallory's career is one which
reflects credit and honor upon the state.
He was a man of quiet tastes and
studious habits. His hobbies were car
pentering and gardening. He took the
greatest pleasure in turning some
dainty piece of furniture on his lathe
or tending the rose bushes and v other
flowers in his extensive garden. He
did not belong to any secret order at
the time of his death, or for manv
years before, but in the early days of
the state was the first noble grand
or the Oddteiiows.
