-4th- U.S. v Bandom & Thompson - "sniping" - stealing gold from the drift by working miners. Guilty - a clear case. The News tonight prints the record of my 8 years trials. No of final judgments 1726, " " appeals affirmed 33 " " " reversed 10. [newspaper clipping:] " A LASTING MONUMENT. In another column we are able to- day to present a statistical review of the cases which have come before Judge Wickersham while serving in Alaska. The very figures of cases tried, appealed, sustained and re- versed speak in more eloquent terms of his ability, keen judgment, knowl- edge of law, fearlessness and honesty than a volume of praise. Such rec- ords live and grow and stand out with more prominence as days go by and become the monument which is erected for but few men before death demands a life's review and the peo- ple weigh careers."
