in his law olllco and about the courts
nuil yesterday he was to have ap
peared In nn argument before the Su

With his daughter, Miss DouNe Jos
sup, he attended the lecture on Alas
ka, given by Hev. V. II. Lukens at the
First Presbyterian chin eh Wednesday
veiling, and letlred about 10 o'clock
without making any complaint of ill
ness. It was his custom to sleep with
a window of his bed loom open and
to lire upon waking to close it. that
the loom might be warmed before it
was lime to get up and dress. Yesterday
morning lie awoke about "..'10 o'clock
anil closed the window. On his "way
back to bed he began to cough so h
lently that his wife was awakened. As
the coughing continued, Mrs. .lessup
became alarmed and, lighting the gas,
called her daughter. The judge sal on
the side of the bed and continued to
cough more violently. At lirsl he said
in answer lo his wife's queries, that
there was nothing the mutter, but af
ter a time he said lie thought his
heart was affected.

HIX1AN STUDY OF LAW.
Immediately after his graduation ho
commenced tlie stuOy of law and was
admitted to tho bar in November, 1SU,
at tho list term of court held by his
father, with whom he immediately en
tered into partneishlp In the practice
of law and has actively pursued it
ever since, having at the very outset
a very wide and important clientele m
all tho northeastern part of Pennsylva
nia, lie enteied the practice of law
lis he did everything else In life, with
the greatest zeal, earnestness and
thoroughness, and soon became and
always continued to bo one of tlie
most prominent and successful law
years In this pait of tho state. HI.
practice extended thioughout the stale
in the stale courts and those of tho
1'nited St.its and he lias been every
wheie known as an accurate, thorough
and able lawyer.
In 1S77 he was appointed picsideut
judge or the Thirty-fourth district to
lill the vai ancy caused by the death
of Judge Stieel. He served upon tho
hem h of that district until 1S7!, his
administration of iho ollicc being di.--tliigulshed
for tlie clearness of his ih -cisions
and the rapid dispatch of the
business of the various courts. As a
judge he was lemurkablo for his
ready comprehension and quick lec
ognition of tho esseuti'il points in
cas'es brought befoie him, for his thor
ough knowledge of all tho branches o'"
the law relating to the. same, and for
his absolute and unswerving impar
tiality la his adminlsiration. On re
tiring fiom the bench he resumed the
practice of the law, with his residence
at Montrose, but his practice widely
extended over the state.
HEMOVED TO THIS CITY.
About lbS9 he removed to Sefan
ton and entered into partnership
Willi Isaac J. Post, taking tho
place in the linn of Hon. Alfred
Hand, who had been recently elevated
to the bench. He has over since had
his principal olllce In Scrauton, having
as partneis successively, Mr. Post,
Horace E. Hand, esq., and his son,
William II. Jessup, Jr,, esq,, with
whom he was still associated at the
time ot Ills death, under the linn nam"
of Jessup & Jessup. The business of
his later years was largely corporation
practice, and ho was one of the most
active lawyeis and advocates in this
part of the state up to the veiy time
of his death. Only last October he
was the leading counsel for tho de
fendant in one of tlie most important
and longest cases ever tried before the
circuit couit of the I'nited States here,
that of the Hussell heirs against tho
Delnvtuic and Hudson company, th"
outcome of the case being a. complete
vlctoiy for his clients. Ills practice In
the appellate courts was always largo,
and Ills breadth of grasp of legal pi lucl
ples, his accurate knowledge of the de
velopment of tho lomi'ion law, tin- de
cisions 'of the state and Cnlted States
couits, and tlie statutes, made-him one
of the most powerful members of Un
bar in all cases linolvlng accurate
know ledge and exhaustive research.
His frankness ot manner, ills sin
cerity, ids clearness of statement, his
ilili, full voice and attractive peisoual
picsjiue made him always a powerful
advocate before court and jury. H
was iciufirkublo lor nothing so much
dining his entire professional career,
to the very day of his death, as for
his intense energy and tlieless indus
try, At a peiiod of llfo when most
men seek release irom the bullions of
business, he was devoting often from
twelve to sixteen bonis a day to tho
most thorough and exhausting labors,
WAS A HEPIM3LICAN.
In politics, Judge Jessup was an ar
dent Hopiibllcau, having assisted In
organizing tho Republican party In his
native town. In November, 1S5I, and in
every campaign sluco that time ho has
taken the slump lor tlie uinliitenunco
of his piinclpkM, and Is known

the convention which nominated Gen
eral Grant to the presidency In 18C8,
and wan one of the delegates nt largo
from 'Pennsylvania to the convention
which named Mr. Illalne In 1S84.
Though prevented ftom enlisting dur
ing tho war ot the Rebellion by his
large huslncFS lesponslbllltles and the
necessary care ot an aged and Inllrni
father, he was unceasingly active In
the support of tho governluont, giving
largely of ihuo and money, and dur

Uieli of the state. In 1871, ho wa:
commissioned by tho governor, John
W. Geary, major general of tho Tenth

I terly address delivered before n public
meeting called by the Citizens' Al
liance in Scrauton about two weeks
ago, In which tho laws governing tho
relations between labor and capital
were most fully and thoroughly ex
pounded. HIS PRIVATE CIIAHACTKH.
All Judge JessupV personal and pro
fessional quullttes and achievements
seem at this time ot small moment
compared to the beauty and purity of
Ills private character. In early life, ho
became a piofesslng Christian, join
ing tlie FrcsbyteiMnn church In Mont
rose, ot which he hits been an active
Ider for over forty years. He has
constantly appeared In the ecclesias
tical courts of ills church from the
lowest lo the highest, and has taken
an active interest In every enterprise
nf tho church at home and abroad.
He was for over twenty-five yeais the
superintendent of the Sunday school of
tho Montrose chinch, resigning only
because of the removal of his residence
and within a few weeks of his death
lie accepted tlie appointment n.i
teacher of a Bible class In tho First
Presbyterian church in Scranton. His
personal life, both at home, in his
business and in all the relations of life,
was marked by the utmost simplicity,
purity, frankness and transparency.
No hi oath of suspicion of anything in
consistent with his character as a pro
fessed believer in the Gospel of Jesus
Christ lias ever been uttered, and he
leaves behind hhn a memory for putily
and usefulness and helpfulness) lo his
fellow-men whlci will long survive
him. In all these respects he followed
with singular completeness the exam
ple of his illustrious father.
In October, 1S.T1, he married Miss
