The St. Paul Globe, founded by Harlan P. Hall in 1878, was published daily until 1905. Anyone interested in the courts during this period sooner or later turns to the Globe for help. Its reporters were keen and insightful observers of the trial bar and the bench.
On March 2, 1902, the Globe published a long article on the Minnesota Supreme Court. For the most part it was simply descriptive and, to fill space, reprinted passages from recollections of the territorial era by Henry L. Moss and Charles E. Flandrau.
Court historians will not find anything new here except the reporter's brief but colorful descriptions of how Chief Justice Charles M. Start and Associate Justices Loren W. Collins, John A. Lovely, Charles L. Lewis and Calvin L. Brown participated in oral argument.
