jjNENTtho period hi which tho
Il transition from territorial to
state government occurred the
most important and intoiestlug epoch
in tho short life of Nebraska there is a
speeial dearth of authentic records, and
for tho incidents and experiences us well
as tho history of this timo ono has to re
ly largely upon tho personal ('collection
of those who wero residents of Nebraska
prior to tho adoption of tho constitution
of 18(10. Tho dates are easily enough
arrived at, but theio is little other
accurate data on record. Tho early his
tory of the Supremo Court did not es
cape tho general neglect, and if this
brief sketch does not abound in dotails
it is partly duo to tho remissness of tho
early Nehraskuns who wero somewhat
belter skelter in their methods,
t t t
In tho original constitution approved
February 9, 1800, it was provided that
tho Supremo Court of tho state should
consist of a chief justice und two asso
ciate justices, each to leceivo a salary of
$2,000 per annum, The judges, it was
also provided, should hold tho district
courts of tho state. Tho state was thon
divided Into three judicial districts. Tho
first district comprised tho counties of
Richardson, Nemaha, Otoe, Johnson,
Pawneo, Gage, JotTorsou, Saline, Fill
moro and Nuckolls; tho second compris
ed tho counties of Cass, Sarpy, Doug
las, Saunders, Lancaster, Seward and
Butler; and tho third included tho
counties of Washington, Dodge, Platte,
Cuming, Burt, Dakota, Dixon. Cedar,
L'Euu-Qui-Court, Keurnoy, Lincoln,
Hull und Buffalo. Each judge had one
of these districts assigned to him by en
actment of tho legislature, und when the
Supremo court was not In ses
sion at tho capitol, most
ot the time of tho judges was
spent in muking tho rounds of their ie
spectivo circuits. As tho district courts
wero hold alternately in tho different
counties tho judges woro kept very busy,
although in tho early dajs the dockets
woro not overcrowded with cases. During
this poriod thoro woro only two railroads
in tho state. Most of tho towns along the
Missouri river woro accessible by rail,
but tho inland towns wero only reached
by long und drenry stage rides over tho
spursley settled prairies and many an in
teresting story is told of those journejs.
While tho lot of thcBo circuit riders wns
not un easy one, their life was relieved
by frequent amusing experiences. Luw,
us it whb known und practiced in Ne
braska the first five years of tho organ
ization of tho state, was not remarkably
profound, and Bomo queer BconeB wero
enacted in tho improvised -court rooms
of tho pioneer days.
Tho judges then, us now, served six
years. Tho Supremo Court, until tho
now cupitol was built, hold its sessions
in dingy und uncomfortable quarters in
tho old clap-trap stato house Work in
tho court of last resort did not accumu
late very rapidly, us the rocoras show
that only twenty cases woro filed for
trial in tho year 1858. It whs several
years before tho number exceeded fifty.
Boyond tho clerk of tho court no assist
ants wero allowed, and tho judges seem
to have had no difficulty in keeping up
with tho work. Indeed, it is probublo
thut tho lubor in connection with tho
district courts whb much more arduous
than that of the higher tribunal.
t t t
Oliver P. Mason, George B. Lako and
Loronzo Crounso compiised tho first
Supremo bench. Miiboii was tho first
chief justice, although ho was not
elected to that ofllco- in those days tho
chief justice whs not chosen in rotation
us now, but whs elected us such. Wil
liam A. Little, a democrat, was nomi
nated and elected chief justice. Ho died
how over, beforo he could take tho ofllco,
and Governor Butler appointed Mason.
Lako and Crounso woro elected in 1807.
Duvid Gantt and Siiinuel Maxwell went
on tho bench in 187,'l. Lako was ie
elected. Ainasu Cobb whb elected in
1878. Muxwoll remained on tho bench
until tho beginning of tho piesent ear.
M. B. ReeBO whb elected in 1881 and
served ono torm. Gantt died in 1888,
whilo on tho bonch; Miiboii in 1892. Tho
others mo still alive. Lake is practicing
law in Omaha, and Crounso, after Inn
ing been clerk of the Supremo Court,
congressman, United States revenue
collector, and assistant secretin y of tho
treasury, has finally lodged in tho exec
utive ofllco. Cobb is enguged in tho
practice of law in this city, and Reeso is
dcun of tho law school at tho University
t t t
Tho convention of 1875 made vetj im
portant changes in tho constitution,
some of which have since boon de
plored. Instead of being elected uni
formly for u term of six joins it was
piovided that tho, judges should bo
classified by lot so that one should hold
his ofllco for two yenis, one for four
yeaisand ono for sixjeais. Tho judge
having tho shortest toim to hoivo, not
holding his ofllco by appointment or eleu
tlon to till a vacancy, wusniado chief jus.
tlt't'. This arrangement, however, as
provided In' tho constitution, applied on
ly to the judgert elected at tho first elec
tion after Its adoption. Thereafter ono
judge has been elected every two jours.
Piovislou was also made for tho divis
ion of the stato Into six judicial districts
and for tho election of judges of tho
same, thus relieving tho Supremo Court
judges of double duty. (The number of
districts has since been considerably In
creased,) The salary, $2,000, was raised
to $2,500, and irovlslon wan made for
the appointment of u reporter who
should also act asclerk of tho coiut and
state libtarlan. At the last session of
tho legislature the way was opened for
the appointment of three Supremo Court
