HON. B. F. MEYERB
Im> nit«n|rtlmfd by the elevation to
thHt brnrh of one who as coun

best traditions of the legal profes

—as those best able 'to speak of
Judge Kunkel's superior fitness for

the universal respect and confidence
which led to his unanimous re
election last year after a decade of
able and Impartial service in the
A committee on committees was ap

County Bar Association committees
which have begun a vigorous cam

Mr. Meyers Presides
There has been seldom in the his
tory of the city so representative a
meeting as that of last evening." Men
l'rom all walks of life and nearly every
occupation were present. The meet
ing started out to be a little neighbor
hood gathering but it wound up in
nothing short of a mass meeting. The
fourt room could not have held an
other person when "William Jennings
stepped forward and asKed for nomi
nations for chairman. B. F. Burns
nominated Hon. B. F. Meyers to pre
side and Mercer B. Tate as secretary.
They were elected unanimously and
"Mr. Jennings named Mr. Burns and
Francis J. Hall as a committee to es
cort Mr. Meyers to the chair.
The room rang with applause as
.Mr. Meyers took the chair and there
were loud calls for a speech.
"Some ten years ago,' said Mr. Mey
ers. "I was engaged in a nonpartisan
judgeship campaign. I believed then
in a nonpartisan judiciary and I be
lieve in it now. While at that time
ihe anti-machine party, as we called
ourselves, was opposed to Judge Kun
kel, I come before you now asking for
your support in his candidacy for the
Supreme Court judgeship, for the rea
son that Judge Kunkel has made good
on the Dauphin county bench. Of his
legal ability 1 have no need to say j
anything, for it is well known. Of his |
integrity I could not say too much. |
While I opposed him when he was
tirst elected, I was glad to vote for
him when he ran for re-election last
Fall. 1 would be sorry to see him
leave the Dauphin county bench, but
on the other hand, 1 would be glad to
see him elevated to the Supreme
bench, because I believe he is pre-emi
nently the man for the place.
It was at this point Mr. Stackpole
asked permission to present, the fore
going resolutions, which were unani
mously adopted and placed on the
He sa)id the whole Inception arid
purpose cJf the meeting was to give the
laymen of the city an opportunity to
lie heard. "The members of the bar,"
said lie, "have put themselves on rec
ord and are doing admirable work in
promoting the candidacy of Judge
Kunkel In every possible way. A
sjreat many of his friends among those
who are not members of the bar have
expressed a desire to be heard in some
way and it seems to be now is an ex
cellent opportunity for those who are
here to say what they would like to
say about Judge Kunkel. We are not
here as lawyers; we are simply here as
ordinary, everyday citizens. I think
we ought to say what we have to say
about one whom we respect and honor
as we do Judge Kunkel."
Milton T. Robinson, who was pres
ent as the official representative of the
Brotherhood of Trainmen, said lie
.spoke for that large and Influential
order when he heartily endorsed all
that had been said in favor of Judge
"I represent the Brotherhood of
Trainmen," said he, "numbering in its
membership thousands of voters in all
parts of the State. I ask that the
name of our organization be spe
cifically mentioned as supporting
Judge Kunkel. Our members do not
forget his splendidly prepared decision
sustaining the constitutionality of the
Pull Crew law, which decision was sus
tained by the Supreme Court. X have
been instructed to go from Pittsburgh
to Philadelphia and from Erie to the
southern boundaries of the State to
speak in behalf of Judge Kunk"l's
■Ed. 3. Herman was the next
speaker. He said in part: "Jir. Hob
inson has spoken for the railroad men,
for the labor unions. ( want to add
• word in behail' of the business in
terests. It is needless for me to sa •
anything cqpcerntng Judge K tinker's
legal qualifications. They are too well
known to require comment. Judge
Kunltel has made good, he is making
good and. I believe if elevated to the
place to Which he now aspires he will
make as great a reputation as he has
in the Dauphin county courts. rn
urging a candidate for such an exalted
position as that of the Supreme Court
bench I think that we will all agree
that fitness must be the tlrst consid
eration, and r am sure that in asking
the people to support Judge Kimk'M
we are backing u man who will .'add
character and ability to the office.
Possibly the greatest tribute that could
be paid iiini is to find, as we do here
this evening, dozens of men support
ing him who were his bitterest oppo
nents when he first ran for judge."
J. V. . Rpynders, vice-president
of the Pennsylvania Steel Company,
said he desired "to speak a word for
Steelton," and he too emphasized the
fact that Judge Kunkel's most ardent
supporters at this time are the very
men who opposed him most vigor
ously a decade ago. Mr. Heynders
thought it the duty of the judge's
townsfolks to see to It that ho be
comes as well known over the State
as he is at home. He spledged the
support of Steelton.
George W. Straw said he was among
those ten years ago who had done the
best they could to defeat Judge
Kunkel: that he had stumped the
county against him'; but the judge had
confounded his opponents of that elec-

The meeting adjourned with three j

On motion of D. E. Tracey a com-!

Also on motion of E. Z. Wallower a
resolution was passed calling on all
Dauphin county people to get into

Letters of Regret
The following letters of regret were
read by Secretary Tate from promi
nent Harrlsburgers unable to attend
but who wanted to go on record as
supporting the movement:
Mr. E. J. Stackpole, Hamsburg. Pa.
My dear Mr. Stackpole: I am In
receipt of a communication dated
March 13 and signed by yourself and
other gentlemen, inviting me to a con
ference In courtroom No. 2 on the
evening of the sixteenth of March at
8 o'clock, to confer with you and
others about ways and means for pro
moting the candidacy of the Honor
able George Kunkel for the Supreme
Court. Inasmuch as I am better ac
quainted with you than either of the
other gentlemen whose names are af
fixed to the call, I make direct reply
It affords me no little pleasure to
say that I hold myself in readiness
to assist in every way possible the
accomplishment of the purpose which
brings you and others together. But
because of certain duties In connection
with tlje homing and caring for the
300 or more Methodist preachers who
will be In our city next week, many of
whom will arrive on Monday evening.
I greatly fear that I cannot be pres
ent at the above meeting and I there
fore send this note so that you may
know that I am entirely in sympathy
with this movement.
It will be one of the chief Joys of
my life, to assist in every way possible
I the election of Mr. Kunkel to this ex
, alted office. While other good and
capable men will aspire for the place,
I candidly believe that no one so fully
equipped by nature and experience
will ask for the suffrage of the people.
The Honorable George Kunkel has
made the best and the most impartial
judge I have ever known. He could
not always do the things I thought he
ought to do: but he did that which was
better—fearlessly did what he himself
conscientiously believed to be right
within the meaning of the law he was
sworn to execute.
It affords be all the more pleasure
to thus attest to his eminent fitness,
because when he was a candidate ten
or more years ago for Judge of the
courts of Dauphin county I as earnest
ly opposed his election as I shall now
I seek to promote it. I did so consclen-
I tlously, but lils record the past ten
' vears fullv demonstrates now thor
SXRRISBURG flHggg TELEGRAPH
oughly, though honestly, one might
bf mistaken. T fully believe that his
tory cannot show a more honest and
conscientious devotion to duty than
Mr. Kunkc 1 has written during the
past ten years. Every lawyer ought
to be proud of it, and especially the
members of his own bar.
I write this, fearing that I may not
be able to be piresent at the above
meeting. Should I be able to get
through with my work and the C. .ties
assigned me in time to be with you,
even though at a late hour, 1 shall
certainly do so. At any rate, permit
me to say that any duty that may at
any time be assigned me, or any ser
vice I can render In promoting the
object sought, will be most cheerfully
given. By so doing I believe I shall
best serve my day and generation.
With sincere personal respect for
yourself and the other gentlemen of
the committee, l beg to remain.

Mr. William Jennings, Harrisburg, Pa.
Dear Mr. Jennings: I hfve your]
circular letter of yesterday concern
ing the meeting called for Monday
evening in courtroom No. 2, to con
sider ways and means for promoting
the candidacy of Judge Kunkel for
the Supreme Court.
1 am most heartily In favor of this
ijlovement, notwithstanding the fact
that the success with which it ought to
meet will be a real misfortune to Har
risburg and to the State of Pennsyl
Air. Kunkel's services to the State
have been notable, and while it is very
proper Indeed that he should have the
preferment indicated, I believe his
great usefulness in his present posi
tion is of vast importance.
T would gladly be present at the
meeting were it not for the fact that
serious illness in my family makes it
impracticable for me to get away in
the evening. .
I will be thankful If you would
mention to your associates my deep
interest in anything that would give
I proper justice to any man who has so
, honored and served his State.
