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 week. 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." WILSON'S TROUBLE IS ALL OVER Had Suffered From Rheuma tism Most of His Life. Praises Tanlac. aoioi o "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. O I D I o i O i I HAZEL WOOD niumirimnuiminnmuniHiimmimitminjimiiiminummjirim miter Served 12 Noon to 9 P. M.
