defeated the North Scranton Stars by
the score of S-5, and the Orientals
bested the Park IHU Stars to the tune
of 7-fi. The llrst match, between the
Stars and gymnasiumites. was i-hnrai--terized
by a deal of lively, energetic
At the end of the first half the Stars

Judge J. W. Carpenter was nve.'
referred to aP "one of the best known
men at tho bar." Ho went on tlw
bench with tho Intimate acriuaintaiice
ship of comparattvtfly few of his fel
low lawyers, Ho was not a recluse,
or unsociable, but his praotlco was, tu
a large measure, "olllce work," and It
being a largo practice, and he a man
who closely applied himself to his
work, his opportunities tor beeoming
"chummy" with the other members of
the bar worn restricted. On this ac
count, as might naturally bo expected,
thero woie possibly some who were
not ready to say enthusiastically that
thu new judge would (ill every rciiilro
ment of the position, that lit this court
lias been so illustriously llllod. If
there were such, It Is safe to say they
do not nuw exift.
Even Ju the short time that Judgo
Carpenter has worn the ermine, he has
given every evidence of lemarkablo lit-nes-K
for the judiciary. It does not
take tho average lawyer very long to
measure it judgo before whom he prac.
tlces, and it does not require a great
period of tinitt for tlm .-atlmute thus
formed to nialso tho round of the bar.
Most of the leading attorneys appealed
before .Judge Carpenter during argu
ment week, and not a feu of them
have had occasion to ileal with him
Individually in equity and oilier
otM-dliiBs. It Is not saying anything
extravagant to declare that the Lacku
wanna bur has formed its opinion of
tho new Judge, and that the opinion
Is a most ilatteilng one.
