Judge A. T. Searle, of Hones

tle came to tho bench Judge Searle
has been called In a number of Im
portant cases In which Judge Little
had been connected as an attorney,
or for other reasons, before his ele
vation to the bench. Mr. Searle,
judging from tho remarks of the at
torneys and those interested in
court matters, Is most highly esteem
ed and has made many friends here.

ed for the high and honorable office
which he holds. A practicing attor
ney for nearly thirty years, he built
up one of the largest practices In
northeastern Pennsylvania prior to
his appointment a couple of years
ago by Governor Stuart to the
judgeship, following the death of
Judge Purdy. During the time none
of the appeals from his decisions,
taken to higher courts, have met with
reversal, proving unqualifiedly his
ability and wisdom of judgment.
