William M. Rapsher, who represents
the Twenty second Senatorial district,
consisting ot Carbon, Monroe and Pike
counties, was boru In Northampton
comity, Peuusylvaula, April 23, 1813. Uls
futher was a laborer and resided ln Car
bon county at the date ot his death, when
the subject ot this sketoh was nine years
of age, Tbe early education ot Mr. Rap
sher waa obtained ln the eommou schools
of his native county aud later at Albiou
College, Michigan, but before he had
co.nprted his studies tho war for the
suppression of tho rebellion broke out,
aud ut the ago ot eighteen years young
Rapsher enlisted in company E, Sixth
regiment Michigan volunteers, for three
years as a private, and participated with
Ilia regiment ln ail of the principal bat
tles of the army of the Department ot the
Gulf At the expiration of his term of
ei.llstmeut, uud while still in the field at
Port liudsou, Loulsuula, he re-enlisted
ami served for oue Tour aud four mouths
longer, or until the close of the war.
'iAfter tbe wur Mr. Rapshor returned to
his native state and engaged In. tne can
ing of school teacher, and taught lu the public schools of Carbon county for
four years and meauwUUe studied law with theluw firm of Messrs. Albright Jt
Bertolette at Mauch Chunk, Carbon couuty, where be concluded to reside. In
1871. having comnleted his urn atnrlloa. be was admitted to bructico before the
Carbon couuty courts and at once acquired a lucrative practice. Mr. Rapsher
has, since attaining his majority, taken great iutercst lu politics, and bas at
v.uvv .w.tuiuu 11m uiojviii.j. in.pu Hlon, .uuv.uuv ... .v, ...... .
different times served his nartv in tbe tiusltlons of school director aud council
man, and was elected district attorney of Carbou county in 188U. In 1877 he
was elected and served as one ot the representatives trom Carbou county tn
the lower house of the Legislature. He subsequently resumed bis practice ot
law In his adopted county, and lu 1887, lu the Uemotrutlo State Convention vof
that year, was strongly urged for a place ou tbe btate Supreme Court bench.
Mr. Rapsher has decided literary tastes uud is a writer of much force. He con
tributes frequently to tbe columns of the North American Review and many

To the Editor or the Advocate:
I beg leave to call attention to a few facts. The editor of the Monroe Demo
crat ot last week's issue lu commenting upon an article lu the Maucb Cbuuk
Daily Times, has this to say: "The Governor is charged with having betrayed
the people ot Carbou county by appointing Hon. John 1). Storm as badly as
when permitted the Reading combination and deal to exist. Such raving is
futile. In tbe Reading deal was the Lehigh Valley It. It if the doal was such
a menace to the prosperity of our neighboring counties, should the Governor
be oondemned for not appointing the Lehigh Valley's counsel (Mr. Craig) as
Judge of the Courts. Would this not have been heaping 'betrayal upon
betrayal f The Monroe Democrat leads me to think that our former townsman
Hon. W. M. Rapsher should be elected Judge next November, to fill tbe vacancy
because he is free and unbiassed In such matters. In this connection I think
it is important to call attention to what somo ot tbe newspapers said about
Senator Rapsher a few years ago when his friends pressed him for the nomina
tion for Judge of the Supreme Court.
The Hazleton Plain Speaker said! "The press throughout the state has com
mented very favorably on the qualifications and ability of the gentleman in
questlou. lie has had an experience ot twenty years in nls profession and not
a Heck is visible upon his escut cbeon and a proud boast his friends make for
mm is that in nearly a quarter ot a century never nas ne represented a
Tbe Philadelphia Times said: "Mr. RaDsher Is admitted well enulpped for
the responsible position named and his nomination Is strongly urged."
The Bellefonte Watchman said: "ifr. RaDsher is a lawyer of high legal at
tainments; he Is qualified according to Democratic! qualifications for suoh a
position, which means that he is versed in the law, able, bus Judicial capacity
equal to any requirements of the place, and knows what tbe people intended
when thoy adopted tbe present Constitution."
The Carbon Advocate said: "Hon. W. M. RaDsher received sixty votes for
Judge of the Supreme Court at the Allentown Convention last week; standing
lourtu on tne urat Dauot witn xnompson, Arnold aud MCleau leauiug, mere
were ln all eight active candidates balloted for ln the Convention." This was
more than a mere compliment.
Let Mr. RaDsher our former townsman by all means have a solid support
from his old home to succeed the late Judge Dreher. He is the right man and
he can win. A RAILROADER.
