Mar.y of the old residents of I'latts
mouth will remember the firm of law
yers known as, Clarke, Porter and Er
vin. Tnis firm located in I'lattsmouth
over forty years ag"o and at that time
were leading lawyers, as well as among
the leading republicans of the day.
William W. Erwin was the youngest of
the firm being at that time but little
past his majority and had just com
menced the practice of law. Although
young, yet his brilliancy was recognized
This firm remained in Plattsmouth
only for a short time when it dissolved
Erwin finally locating at St. Paul,
Minn., where for many years he has
been its most famous and successful
attorney. It is said that for years,
Erwin was engaged in nearly every
celebrated criminal case throughout
Minnesota and the north western states.
His great effort in the famous Home
stead cases gave him a national reputa
tion as an advocate.
Graves Gaes Zorr.e.
Harry E. Graves, a printer of Utica,
Neb., issues a challenge to the type
setters of the state. He has a record
which he states rather indefinitely, but
which may by a very good one.
He says: "On September 15, I set
one galley of S-point type (brevier) in
one hour and forty-seven minutes. I
am employed in the office of the Utica
Sun. I am twenty years old and chal
lenge anyone to beat this record. My
former record for the same amount of
type was one hour and fifty-three min
utes. I claim to be the champion type
setter of the state and would like to
know the record of anyone who can
Mr. Craves' claim as to amount of
type set is rather indefinite. If he had
stated the number of ems printers gen
erally whould have recognized the exact
amount of matter set. Galleys vary in
length, ar.d Mr. Graves makes no refer
ence to the width of matter the length
of the lines. Further, he does not say
whether the matter set was leaded,
whether it was matter frequently par
agraphed. The rapid typesetters of the state
will be found, it is believed, in the
country printing offices where the lino
type has not superseded hand composi
tion. State Journal.
