Tho banquet tendered Hon. John 11.
Orvi, l'rinidcnt Judge of tho Forty-ninth
Judicial District, by tho liar Association
ot Contro county, took pdaco at tho Mrock
crboff llouiio, Friday evening, August 81.
Tho membera of tho bar, court officials
and representatives of tho press assembled
early in tho evening in tho ludios parlor
and passed the time in social conversation.
All awaited the summons to supper with
that patience which only hungry lawyers,
officials and reporters can exhibit. A lit
tle after ! I'. M., under the marshalship of
Col. Hastings and .1. 1.. Spangler, the
famished crowd were formed in double
tile, light marching order, ompty stomachs
ami capacious vests, with not a needless
button. The doors of the banqueting room
were then thrown open and tho line of
march taken up, tiling right and left, each
man arrived at a position of vantage.
Thero before him ho saw one of the finest
sights that can greet the eyes of a hungry
man ; a table fairly groaning beneath all
tho delicacies tho ingenuity of a ma-tor
cook could suggest, the atmosphere redo
lent with tiie perfume of tho choicest
dowers the green houses of the cities could
furnish. The decoialioni of the dining
riHim in keeping with tho table and wait
ers, dre sod in harmony with both. At
each plate was a pink-tinted envelope with
tho name of tho banqueter written in a
beautiful hand. This envelope contained
tho bill of fare, a littlo gem of the print
er's art, with the names of tho gentlemen
giving tho banquet. GQ each knapkin
was pinned a beautiful button-holo boquet,
At tho east end of the table General
Itoaver and the guest of the evening, Hon.
John 11. Grvis, Jac I*. Coburn, H<>n.
K. Smith ; at the west end the c-unrnittee,
Co!. I>. H. Hastings and J. I. Spangler,
with tho venerable court crier, Mr Gab
braith, to give dignity to that end of the
table. When the tnrnu bad been gone
through with Gen Heaver arose and in a
neat littlo speech proposed the toast of the
evoning, "Our guest,' Hon Jno.il. Grvis,
President Judge of the 41' th Judicial Ho*
triot. This wa received with applause.
The came from Hon. C T. Al
exander, for years associated with Judge
Grvis in tho practice of the law. In a
numerous vein the Senator reviewed the
life of tho "baby boy b<'rn in Sullivan

The Senator's spoorh wa replete with
happy allusions to the profrn. r.al isro r
of the Judge, and abandoning the comic
vein in which ho started out, h" paid a
glowing tribute to his old law partner,
which carne warm from the heart The
sentiments that found e*pr.-i n in the
language < f Senator Alciar.dcr were
echoed by these present.
Judge Orvis then replied in a brief ar. 1
| pointed speech. He referred with pardon
able [ride to the diminution f crime in
this judicial district and while ho rlaimcd
•oroe credit himself ho arc rd'-d toothers
their just share. He had endeavored to
hold the scales of Justice even, and if he
erred in his dicMflU UWBupWM Cowl
was careful to correct his error. Tho in- j
tercourse of the Isenrh with the bar had
boon ail that professional r. urtesy c u. l
desire he had leen treated with uniform
kindness by every member of the bar
that while he had at times been compelled
to interpose his judicial hand between
contending attorneys, ho had done it in
the interests of justice. Inclosing his rc
marks he thanked the bar association for
the confidence they had alwan shown
him, and for the sentiment that had
prompted this banquet. The sentiment
proposed by Judge Watson, "The Bench '■
and Bar of Centre county, able, learned, ,
arol honorable in the past, its present I
who have gone before," was replied to by
members worthy successors i f those
by A. Hoy, Ksq , who reviewed the history
of the bench and bar of Centre county
This was one of the most interesting and
entertaining of the evening. Mr. 11. has
tho history of Centre county's great judges
and lawyers at his finger ends. Mr Hoy
was followed by Col. Hastings, J. I,
Spangler and all the members ol the bar
present, and by tho county officials and
representatives of the press. At I o'clock
A. M , closed one of the snost enjoyable
occasions eTer held in our town. Long
will the occasion be remembered by those
who were present.
Kev. Mr. Bingham, of Lincoln Uni
