Successor to Late Judge
Gantenbein Named.
Selection ot Ex-TT. S. district At
torney Is Lauded by Multno
mah Bar President
ALFM. Or.. Nov. 24. (Special.)
John McCourt, of the law firm of
'urit M.-Court & Veazie, and for
merly United
States attorney irom
this district, today was apponuea
circuit jude in Multnomah county to
succeed the late C U. Uantenbein,
whose death occurred in Portland last
In making the ' appointment Gov
ernor Olcott said that Mr. McCourt
was not an applicant for the judge
cliip and had no intimation of his se
lection until so informed today.
"I have known John McCourt for
many years," said Governor Olcott to
day in announcing his selection. VIn
fact, many years agro and soon after
my coming to Oregon in 1891 we were
roommates for over a year, while he
was a struggling: young lawyer and I
a cub hank clerk, and our associations
and friendships have been close ever
.since. As a result. 1 am in a position
to know that he will make a strong,
virile and admirable addition to the
personnel of the bench of the state.
"Mr. McCourt made an exceptionally
excellent record as United States at
torney, is a highly successful prac
ticing lawyer, well balanced and level
headed and of high integrity and
standing. During the war period he
served under appointment by the war
department on the Fosdick commis
sion, which had to do with the social
hygiene of army camps. In this ca
pacity he served withovit salary, his
jurisdiction extending over the states
of Oregon and Washington. He was
appointed by me a member of the sol
diers' and sailors commission and
was the personal representative of
the executive office at the funeral of
Governor Ernest Lister of Wash
ington. "Mr. McCourt was not an applicant
for the judgeship and knew nothing of
my intention to appoint him until I
apprised him of it. In his acceptance,
Multnomah county and the state at
large, I believe, may have reason for
congratulation, securing the services
of a man of his ability for the posi
tion. "1 wish to express my deep regret
at t lie passi ng of Judge Gantenbein.
He was a jurist of ability, a patriot in
the high est sense of the term, and
in his death the state has lost a citi
zen of the type which it can ill afford
to lose."
Had Suffered From Rheuma
tism Most of His Life.
Praises Tanlac.
"I had been troubled with rheuma
tism practically all my life, but when
I began taking Tanlac all signs of it
disappeared," said I. S. Wilson, a car
penter, who resides at 80 Elm street,
Portland, Or., to a Tanlac represen
tative a few days ago. Continuing,
he said:
"Yes, sir, I suffered with rheuma
tism in practically every part of my
body, but it was especially bad in my
right leg. It pained me something
awful all the time and I had hardly
any use of it at all, and it was all I
could do to get about. It was im
possible for me to raise my-leg and I
could pot step up on a curbstone or j
go upstairs without a great deal of
effort. I could get but very little j
sieep as the pain was so bad it would i
wake me up at all hours of the night, j
When I did manage to go to sleep if;
I happened to turn on my right side ;
my hip would hurt me so I would i
jump nearly out of the bed. I had
suffered so much pain my nerves
were completely shattered and I was i
badly run down. '
"Alter reading so much about j
Tanlac I decidedto try it, and 1 be- j
gan to get better after I had taken :
only a small amount. By the time I1
had taken six bottles I could go up- j
stairs and use my leg as good as'any '
15-year-old boy. The rheumastism j
entirely disappeared and has never j
bothered me since and I can sleep on j
my right side or in other position !
without ever waking up once. I have j
gained in weight and strength and i
while 1 am HO years of age I feel as ;
good as a man of 35. I take a little
Tanlac now every once in awhile, as I
I believe it will keep me in good j
health. I never fail to recommend j
Tanlac for I know what it will do."
Tanlac is sold in Portland by the
Owl Drug company. Adv.

The comment of Uarge 1C. Leonard,

the selection of John McCourt by Gov
ernor OKott to fill the vacancy on the
circuit bench left by the death of
Judge Calvin U. Gantenbein was
echoed throughout -the city among
lawyers and judges yesterday. j
The excellent record of Mr. Mc- j
Court as federal attorney in Portland'
made the choice an exceptionally pop

The Hurley-Mason company is de
