WEBSTER AND CHOATE.
JUDGE MAC ARTHUR’S RECOLLEC
TIONS OP TWO FAMOUS MEN.
Bis First Meeting With Rufus Choate
—A Supper With Young Evarts-A
Case in Which Choate and Webster
Were Opponents-Their Admiration
for Each Other.
Hie ]Vashiuyton Stay.
Judge Mac-Arthur, who but recently re
tired from the Supreme bench of the Dis
trict, practiced law in his younger days at
the same liar and in some of the same cases
with Rufus Choate and Dane! Webster. He
weut over some of his recollections of these
two great men with a reporter the other
day. He is a charming narrator and adds a
peculiar interest to everything he tells that
cannot be entirely preserved in the repeti
tion by another. The reporter found him
in his study in the afternoon with some
pages of manuscript before him and two or
three volumes of rare old French plays lying
on the table The shelves lining the walls
were filled with some line books, of which
the Judge is fond, anil a cool breeze blew
through the window-s, which open on two
sides of the room. It is as light and cheer
ful a room as one can well imagine.
The Judge wheeled up an immense arm
chair for the reporter and sat buck in his
own favorite chair, swinging his glasses a
little with his left hand as he called to mind
the days when he first began practice as a
HIS FIRST MEETING WITH CHOATE.
“I first met Mr. Choate,” he said, “under
these circumstances: I was retained in a
criminal case iu Massachusetts. It must
have been in 'll or '42. I was a young man,
as you may judge. My client was indicted
for murder, lie was no ordinary criminal,
but a man of wealth and position and the
case attracted much attention. I secured
the assistance of Mr. Ashrnun, who was a
lawyer of ability, and was afterward a
mem iter of Congress and became very widely
known. He advised me to secure the ser
vices of Mr. Choate," so I went to Boston
with a letter of introduction and called at
his office. He was not in aud I was told
that I would find him at the library, where
he spent much time reading. 1 had never
seen him and there were several others
present, but I knew in a moment which
was he. His fine presence; his raven locks,
curling about his lioad; his sharp black eyas,
liis swarthy-complexion and protruding lips;
his composure and nobility of presence—
there was no mistaking him. I walked up
to him and asked if he were not Mr. Choate.
He replied that he was, aud I shall never
forget the elegance and grace cf his manners
as lie offered me a seat. He was a most pol
ished and elegant gentleman, dignified but
perfectly approachable, with a maimer so
polite and unassuming that he put one at
ease in a moment. He was
A GOOD LISTENER,
and had a way- of drawing one out. I know
1 hat he drew me out—drew more from me
than I thought I knew when I first began to
explain the object of my visit. I explained
the case and my anxiety that he should
come into it, and he listened to me for an
hour, interrupting only occasionally for a
moment to ask a question or to point out
some difficulty- to lx- overcome. I remember
bow he would say when some doubtful point
would occur to him in the case: ‘Well, Mr.
MacArthur, what are you going to do about
this;' Then I would explain my view of it
and we would go on to the next point. The
dofense was justifiable homicide in defense
of life and property, and I explained to him
all the points and the theory of the defense.
Well, tho upshot of it was that he agreed to
enter the case. He was then in the Senate
and when the trial came off he came from
Washington to attend it. In Massachusetts
then all criminal cases were tried by the
Supreme Court of the State and prosecuted
by the Attorney General, assisted by the dis
trict attorney. Old Chief Justice Shaw,
Justice Dewey and Justice Wild, all distin
guished men, were on the bench. The dis
trict attorney opened the case for the prose
cution and the Attorney General closed it. I
made no argument on the other side. I pre
pared the case for trial, caring for every
detail. Choate addressed the jury and I
never in my life witnessed a grander foren
sic display-. Choate was the greatest of
American orators. A mob had raided a
house rented by the prisoner aud he had
defeuded it, killing one of the assailants, so
you can see there was an inuneuse amount
of evidence. The mob aud their friends
w-ere called as witnesses aud the case tool; a
week for trial. I prepared every detail of
•he defense so that there was not a point
Choate wanted that I did not have for him.
I had eveiy reference and all that had any
hearing on the case light at my fingers' ends.
That was my part of the defense.
CHOATE’S ADDRESS TO THE JURY
was magnificent. He had the sympathy of
everybody in the court room, of the court
and of the jury with him. We thought the
district attorney had gone outside of the
evidence in hi:; opening and Mr. Choate
called the court’s attention to it. I remem
ber old Chief Justice Shaw. He looked like
a turtle. He wore a very large collar and
stock and sat with his chin drawn way down
in it, and when anything attracted his at
tention he would stretch out his neck and
his head would come out of his collar like a
• turtle’s out of it's shell. But he was a very
able man. He stuck his head out in that
comical way anil directed the district attor
ney that he must keep within the evidence.
The district attorney was a hard-headed,
though an able man, and had tho statement
of the case in his mind in that way and it
spoilt his argument to be interfered with.
So we had the court on our side and the liest
of the case.
“When Choate had spoken for two hours
in tb is eloquent and poetical stylo, he stooped
so that his lips were.close to my ear and
whispered: ‘Well. Mr. MacArthur, do you
think we have brushed all that rubbish
away?” He referred to tho evidence of the
prosecution. I replied that I thought so.
Then,’ he said, ‘I will go on with the case,’
and he directed the rest of liis remarks en
tirely to the case. This was done in the
coolest possible way, right in the midst of
his argument, that everyliody was worked
“IV hen the case went to tho jury they re
turned in a few minutes with a verdict of
not guilty.’ ”
“The case had lasted a week or more and
I hail come to know Mr. Choate very well.
I becamo very fond of him.
A SUPPER WITH CHOATE AND EVARTS.
“The nest time I saw Mr. Choate,” tho
i Judge continued, ‘was on tho street in lios
|ton. Ho came up and clapjiod his hand on
m y shoulder and invited me to his house to
supper, I mention tins because of another
Dung. At that time Hearts had just mad*-
tiw first demonstration. He had just deliv-
the adi Iress hi a case before ou ; of the
New York courts that gave him his first
reputation. Ho was then a very young man
“ud it attracted much attention.. I ivmoiu
™*r °i reading a groat deni about it in the
newspapers. Well, young Kvarls was at
*"Pl*v with us and there l met, him for the
urst time. He did not look diffei-e-.it then
i "°vv n ‘ IH * he does when you see him here
U) vv ashington to-day. He was an old young
man, He was very mueh elated over his
A FAMOUS CASE.
"In 184s I was retained to defend a com
pany in Springfield in a suit brought by a
car-ivheel company for an infringement of
*? < r r patent on flu? car wheel. My client
claimed that the wheel he mudo was differ
* . ai| d an improvement on tho other. It
a ' cry famous cose. Of course the first
ptug I (fid was to secure the .service* of Mr.
iia U, i°- * m y client to him anil wo
a'? the case over. Then my client left
unu 1 remained a while longer, Ho I was
<iga.Hi associated with that great, lawyer iu
a cose. That was a famous trial. It lasted
/ j n month and there was a great array of
li lent. There was Choate on our side and
' n urtia, afterward Justice of the United
latcs Supreme Court, and Daniel Wolmter,
ius*ri“s:uLng the plaintiff. Choate was a
devotee of Webster's. They were great
friends and Choate hail the greatest awe
and admiration for Webster’s splendid ge
niur,. I remember I did not think I should
1 ike AYebstcr. It was ten days after the trial
began before he appeared in the court room.
I. remarked to Mr. Choate that he would
never he able to catoh up with the case, but
his reply was: ‘He will be dangerous when
ever he comes into the case.’
“When the great Webstar did come,”
sa:d Judge MacArthur, “he did not seem to
take much interest in the case. He came
iuto it quietly without ostentation, and took
no part in it, except occasionally to ask a
question. He just sat there anil watched.
He chatted and was very sociable and agree
able with everybody. I got to know him
very well, and to have a great respect anil
admiration for him. He was a grand man.
He wore that historical suit and high choker;
and his fine eyes, deep-set and swarthy com-
S ’exion distinguished him from all others,
e was regal looking.
“I was to open the case for the defense.
He would come to me and say, ‘AYell, Mr.
MacArthur, we are all waiting anxiously to
hear your opening, to see if you will leave
anything for the rest of us,’ and I would
make some jesting reply. AV e were all very
friendly, and Mr. AA’cbster was exceedingly
agreeable all the while. AYhen the plain
tiff’s case was closed I spoke for five hours,
opening our side. I thought I was drag
ging it out too long, and intimated as much
to Mr. Choate. ‘No,’ said he, ‘take up all
the time you can, say everything you can
think of, and try and drive away the good
impression the other side has made.’ Ho 1
wont oil and said all I could think of that
could do us any good. Both Webster and
Choate were very kind to me and spoke in
complimentary terms of my effort. Many
ladies were in the court room to hear the
addresses of Webster and Choate. The two
greatest men of their day pitted against each
other in a suit was a great occasion. Choate
made a grand address. Webster’s reply was
an ordinary legal argument—cold and logi
cal. He was uot the orator that Choate
was. It was in this case that the famous
anecdote of the two men was told. That
Choate, in the most elegant way, and with
great minuteness, described the vast differ
ence between the two ear wheels, until he
had convinced everybody that they could
not possibly be anything alike. Then VVelv
ster replied by simply pointing to the two
wheels and saying: “Well, gentlemen, there
they are; see for yourselves,’ and so won
the case. But, truly, Mr. Webster’s argu
ment was very plain •m l simple. He was
not a great forensic speaker. He could clear
out an assemblage of people after their curi
osity had been satisfied us quickly as any
man. Choate held liis hearers spell-bound.
“Choate had the most, peculiar handwrit
ing any body ever looked upon. It was not
trembling; the characters were bold and
clear, but they were like some strange, for
eign alphabet—it was perfectly unintelligi
ble. He would write out instructions tor
me to copy, and I could not read them. I
would say: ‘Judge, you will have to tell
me w’aat that character is.’ ‘Why,’ he
would reply, ‘that’s so and so: it’s as plain
as the nose on your face.' Just before he be
gan to speak Webster took a handful of
Choate's notes and distributed them among
the ladies in the court room, going around
with them like a man with handbills. He
gave them out as curiosities, saying that he
did know what they were; the ladies might
take them home and study them out.
WEBSTER’S ADMIRATION FOR CHOATE.
“It was on Monday, I think, that, Choate
concluded his argument. Mr. Webster was
to speak the next day, and that night the
Middlesex bar (that is, Boston), gave a din
ner to the State bar. Choate and Webster
were there, and I was present. Choate was
all worn out from his speech during the dav,
and had to retire very soon. When Web
ster came in the banquet room (it was at
the Revere House) everybody stood back
with awe. No one went up to talk with
him, and it was with evident relief that he
saw me standing in the middle of the room,
and he came up at once and entered into
conversation. We had been in the same
case so long that wo had como to be on easy
terms. AVe conversed for some time, speak
ing of Choate’s effort of the (lay. and Web
ster spoke in the most complimentary terms
of Choate’s powers. The two men had the
highest regard for each other. Choate
adored Webster, and AA r ebster had the high
est admiration for Choate. He fully appre
ciated his g: eat genius.
CHOATE AS AX ORATOR.
“Choate was the greatest American ora
tor,” the judge continued. “I think there
are three men who must tie recognized as
tho greatest orators of America, and I will
name them in the order of their genius.
They were Rufus Choate. AVendell Phillips
anil Henry Ward Beecher. Beecher made
many common-place speeches, but could
and did say some grand things. Phillips
never delivered an address that was not a
mavel of oratory. Choate was the peer of
any of the great Roman orators. Choate
was one of the warmest, most sympathetic,
aud gonial men in the world. His genius
entered into his fellowship aud ripened and
RIGHT SMART NEBRASKA BOY.
A Story of Him Told by His Admiring
From the Chicago Herald.
“I want to tell you a little story about my
boy out in Neivbraskey,” said an old farmer
in the smoking car to tho party of drum
mers who had been telling him some pretty
tall yarns. “My boy is a good deal of a
genius in bis way. lenune tell you, and none
of ’em gets ahead of him. T’other day he
rigged up a kite. It was the biggest kite
I’d ever set eves on. It was about 0 feet
■wide, an’ 1 wire as long, an’ on the top of it.
my boy placed a few green branches which
he’d cut from a cottonwood tree. ‘AYbat’s
them fori’ I inquired. ‘Never you mind,
dad,’says be; ‘I know what I'm about.’
Ana, by gosh, he did. He flew that kite up
in the air an’ stood watchin’ of it far a long
time, w hen I saystohim: ‘You’d better pull
that thing down, now, an’ get to your
work.’ ‘Lemma alone, clad,’ be replied, ‘l’ll
git that yet.’ And, by gosh, he did. The
next time I took a look at him he was
a-liauling in on the kite lino, with a snuie
on his face as broad as a furrer. AYhen the
kite came down near the ground I saw
what ho was smilin’ at, an’ it was enough to
make a body smile, too. Any you fellers
want to guess what was on that kito?”
None of the drummers wanted to guess,
and the old man continued lus story.
“Wall, sir, a-sitin’ on the top o’ that kito
was eleven o’ the purtiest wild geese ye ever
saw. Yes, sir, eleven on'em. You see, the
geese was (lyin’ north purfcy thick, and my
boy had got up this soheino to catch’em.
There ain’t many trees out our way, un
niter a fat goose has been filin’ party
steady all day l:e gits kind o’ tired an’ looks
around lor a place to sit down mi’ rest.
That’s just what my boy was countin’ -on
when he built tlmt ’ kito. l!y offerin' the
gt cc a place to stop au' rest, an’ by smear
in’ the top o’ the Lite, with tar so their feet
would stick so tout they couldn’t get, away,
lie did the business. Bygosb! but it was
fun to pull them geese iu. Just as fast as
we could send the kite up and pull her
down again wo got from ten to a dozen
geese, an’ in four day's we captured six car
load*, au’ I'm taldn’ ’em to Chicago now to
sell. None o’ you smart, story-teiim’ fellers
don’t happen to know what wild geese is
wuth now in the Chicago market, do ye?”
It is a Fact
AVell established, that consumption, if at
tended to in its first stages, can be cured.
Thera is, however, no true and rational way
to cure this disease, which is really scrofu
lous ulceration of the lungs, except t hrough
purifying the blood. Keep the h\er in per
fect order and pure blood will lie the result.
Dr. Pierce's “Golden Medical Discovery,” a
purely vegetable rein pound, does all this and
more; while it purities tho blood it also builds
up the system, streugthe.’iing it against fu

The Reach of Any.
I have on my list a few
lots, well located, at prices
ranging from $350 to $1,500.
A cash payment ranging
from $lOO to $5OO will secure
one of these lots.

not afford to pay for a lot on
Bull street, buy one where
you can afford to live.
Procrastination is the thief

low. The prices of to-day will

There is less Real Estate on
the market than at any time in
ten years. There are more
buyers than sellers, and this
will continue as long as our
city compares so favorably
with every city in the South.
The property that is changing
hands is being purchased by
those who are able to hold.
The encouraging feature of
the market is that the demand
is from those who are buying
I have a few desirable resi
