JOHN C. BILLS.
On the twenty-third day of August, 1897, John C. Bills, a leading member of the bar of the state and of this court, departed this life at his home in Davenport.
On October 12, 1897, E. E. Cook presented memorial proceedings of the Scott county bar on his death, and after appropriate remarks by E. E. Cook, Fred Heinz, Nathaniel French, L. A. Ellis and N. M. Hubbard on behalf of the bar, and by Justice Robinson and Chief Justice Kinne on the part of the court, it was ordered that the proceedings of the Scott county bar be entered of record in this court. It was accordingly done, and they follow:
MEMORIAL ON THE DEATH OF Hon. John C. BILLS.
It is customary when a member of this bar dies, to spread upon the records of the court a memorial, that those who come after us may know the manner of man he was-how his associates regarded him When the greatest among us dies, a plain recital of the record he has made, is the most fitting tribute to his memory
John C. Bills came to Davenport in 1856, and spent his professional life a member of this bar.
He represented the county for four years in the state senate, and was recognized as the leader of his party. He made a creditable record as the advocate of good laws, but a better one as the eloquent denouncer of bad ones.
He was for ten years a member and president of the school board of this city. He gave to the discharge of the duties of the position the same lidelity and devotion and hard work as to his most lucrative
