MAT IT PI. EASE YOUR. HONORS The
In memory of the Hon. James M. Wool
' worth, who, after an Illustrious career at
me Dar, covering a period of nrty years,
died at his home In Omana, Neb., on toe
16th day of June, 1K06. respectfully submit
Resolved, That In the death of James M.
Woolworth, the state has lost one of Its
tension one of Its most eminent members.
Mr. Woolworth was born and bred a
gentleman and reared In an atmosphere of
' learning and culture. He was accomplished
.a scholar as well ss a lawyer.
He wss deeply versed In the principles
and science of his profession and familiar
with 'the established rules and precedents
which govern the conduct of causes.
. He Was Industrious, persistent and faith-
fill. He conntructed his esses In his office,
conscientiously and laboriously adjusting
very detail to the minutest point.
Neither Inspired nor handicapped by his
emotions or Impulses, he was deliberate,

was as Impersonal as the principles he ad
vocated. . . -
He wns also an aeeomr!lnhed strategist
the master of all the devices and mysteries
of legal procedure a dangerous adversary
even when his cause whs weak.
He was calm snd considerate at the trial,
and his courtesy and kindness to courts
snd adversaries lent dignity and grace to
his persuasive arguments and won for him
the admiration and regard of litigants,
lawyers, jurors anil Judges.
He was symmetrical In person, character
and In the development of his career. He
neither reached the mountain heights nor

. along the calm levels.
Fame nests on the lw.
. Samuel Rlnaker of Beatrice said:
Mr Woolworth was a great lawyer, and
therefore necessarily a great man. ine al
lurements of poUUcs and the glamor of
?.ublic office seemed to have little attraction
or him. and failed to divert him from his
devotion to the unobtrusive labor of the
profession of the law. He. therefore, did
not gain the popular fame and applause
which attend the more showy services of
the polltlctsn and the men of public af
fairs. His fame and Influence were con
fined principally to the courts and the
members of the bar, before and among
whom, by his splendid natural talents, his
extensive and varied scholarship and his
untiring tndurtry ho won the highest suc
cess and honor.
By W. H. Thompson, Grand Inland:
Hon-. James M. Woolworth, as attorney
for appelllant. presented the first case re
ported to this honorable court, compiled
the first two volumes of Its decisions, the
first In 1871. the second In 1873. He was one
of the state's must active and successful
practitioners. His mannerisms disarmed
his adversary, won the confidence of the
court and. without a seeming effort on his
part, drew the Jury closer and closer to a
realisation of his wishes. His scholarly at
tainments and Invariable gentlemanly bear
ing made him a most welcome companion
to one and all, high and low, learned and
unlearned, tlch anil r or alike. It was said
by Lord Coke that "law Is like unto a deep
well, and each man drawcth therefrom In
accordance with the strength t of his itn
derstamllng." If , this be air axiom, then
ttruly was Woolworth ft great lawyer.
He was Intensely conservative In feeling
-.thought and action. A belief In the estab
lished order Whs In him a habit' of th
blood. Institutions were . a. matter of his
torical development to bo studied with the
ye and enthusiasm of an architect.
'- He was apt in tracing the" evolution of
society particularly the state and church
by analysis, comparison and contrast. The
passions which swoep the soul of man In
his efforts to realise his wanks and aspira
tions appealed to him less than did the
forms In which they are embodied.
- He believed that whatever the Individual
may conceive the moral right to be, the
welfare of society can best be conserved
bv reforms accomplished with respect to
the established institutions and principles
embodied In them; that although imper
fect, governments are still the truest ex
pression of the higher law, to be changed.
if at all, by peaceful and progressive rather
Vtan by .violence or . revolutionary pro
These talents, dispositions and tastes de
termined not only his carter, but likewise
Ineplred and sustained him In the unre
mitting toll by which ho became a great
lawyer, achieving natlomil distinction and
place among the foremost representa
tives of the American bar.
For many years Mr. Woolworth exercised
an elevating and refining Influence not only
upon the profession or tne country. tut
upon the communities or tne state, in nis
companionship there was something fine.
He wss a conversationalist not a monolo-
glst; not only an Interesting talker, but
an exceedingly Interesting listener. He
was genial and Inspiring; he was a con
stant and persistent force to raise and
tiurlfy the standards and tone of living.
It Is, therefore, especially fitting that
this tribute should be placed upon the
x records of this court and a copy of It duly
certified transmitted to the surviving mem
bers of his family, to whom we tender our
sincere sympathy. .

The assistance which lawyers of ability
and character render to the courts In their
difficult and laborious duties Is known
and appreciated by all men who are In

Members of the bar who are thorough

ficers, and patiently and with 'candor en
deavor to assist the court to reach a cor
rect conclusion, are not always sware of
the high regard In which they are held.
Such a man was Mr. Woolworth. I never
knew of an attempt by him to deceive the
court, either In the essential facts of his
case or In the principals of Inw applu-b.!e
