Viewing Ramsey County District Court Judges (1896).
The St. Paul Sunday Globe on May 10, 1896, carried a lengthy article on the District Court Judges of Ramsey County by the reporter who had covered the local courts for the past one and a half years. During that time he attended hundreds of trials, hearings and oral arguments and had come to nearly idolize the six trial judges. His article consists of impressionistic sketches of Judges Hascal R. Brill, William L. Kelly, Charles D. Kerr, Charles W. Otis and James J. Eagan. For some reason his sketch of Judge John W. Willis was edited out of the final article.
