His Uncle

It is scarcely less then supererogation in writing a biographical sketch of Judge Francis T. Hord, a resident of Columbus Indiana, to refer to him as a lawyer in the ordinary phraseology which meets requirements when dealing with an average member of the bar. The terms lawyer, counselor, barrister, etc., one or all combined, fall short in conveying to the mind any just estimate of Judge Hord's great attainments and conceded eminence. He is something more, and much more, indeed, though it be said that his as a good lawyer, a prudent counselor, an eloquent pleader, etc., there is still something lacking, because such adjectives fail to express the fact that Judge Hord is eminently what is expressed by the term jurist cons ult - a man profoundly versed in the science of law and the philosophy of jurisprudence. He grasps fundamental principles, and when the case in hand is such as to command the resources of his mind, his learning, investigation and energies, his opinions are scarcely less than inspirations. It is then that the deep mysteries of law are made plain. It is then that the winding, l abyruinthian pathways of law are made straight and the people, even the common people, are permitted to know their rights. For simplicity and force of expression, Judge Hord is Websterian - weak and superfluous words are weeded out and only strong, weighty and, if possible, Saxon words are employed - and if, in this connection, a word of regret is in order, it might be said that Indiana's judicial renown wo uld have been increased if, long since, Judge Hord had been accorded a seat on the Supreme bench of the state.

Judge Hord is a native of Kentucky, and was born at Maysville, Mason county, in that state, November 24th, 1835. He is the son of Francis T. Hord Sr., a distinguished lawyer and Elizabeth S. (Moss) Hord.

In acquiring an education young Hord was not matriculated in the common schools of his native city, and was, therefore, never subjected to this curriculum, but at an early age entered the Maysville Academy, from which he graduated in 1853. He studied law under the instruction of his father, was admitted to the bar in 1856, and in the spring of 1857 emigrated to Indiana and located at Columbus, Bartholomew county, where he has since resided. After his location at Columbus, he at once advanced to the frond rank of the lawyers of the Bartholomew County bar and secured a lucrative practice. In 1858, one year after his location at Columbus, he was elected prosecuting attorney in his Judicial district, in which he met every responsibility in a way that won universal approval, and declined a re-election that he might devote himself more entirely to his general practice.

In 1862 he was elected to the state senate, serving four years. In 1880 he was placed by the Democratic state convention as a candidate for the presidential elector of the 5th congressional district, Hancock and English being candidates for president and vice-president. He was for twenty years county attorney for Bartholomew county, and for four years city attorney of the city of Columbus.

In 1882 Judge Hord was elected attorney-general of the state of Indiana and was re-elected in 1884, serving four years and it was during these four years that Judge Hord's great abilities won for him a place in the profession second too that of no jurist in the state of Indiana. His devotion to the interests of the state was not only tireless, but immensely beneficial. Under his administration action was instituted by the state to recover 23,000 acres of land, formerly the bed of Beaver Lake, which had been drained and which had been appropriated by individuals for their private use. It was a case involving intricate questions of law, the rights of the state and the rights of individuals, but Judge Hord's exposition of the tangled questions was so lucid and convincing that the state secured the land. As attorney-general, Judge Hord's published opinions have the value of text books in the courts. Upon every question submitted to him there was such a wealth of learning, such grasp of principle, such a blending of the science and philosophy of law, such concise and lucid statements that little or nothing at all was left upon which to hang a controvening opinion. A notable instance was that of the appropriation of money by the legislature by joint resolution, a practice of long standing, and which was repeated during Judge Hord's incumbency of the office of attorney-general - the legislature, by joint resolution, having appropriated $10,000.00 to Mrs. Edwin May. Judge Hord was asked for an opinion upon the subject by the auditor of state, as to the validity of the appropriation. The opinion was given by Judge Hord that appropriations made by joint resolution are unconstitutional and therefore invalid. The case was take to the supreme court, where Thomas A. Hendricks appeared for Mrs. May, but Judge Hord's views of the subject were sustained by the court, that an appropriation could only be made only by law, and that laws sho uld be enacted by bill, and that money could not be appropriated by joint resolution, and thus an ancient error in a matter of supreme importance was abolished by the clear perceptions of Judge Hord's opinion relating to the election of a lieutenant-governor, in case of a vacancy, at the next general election, given in response to a request made by Gov. Gray, less clear and convincing, and though the election of a lieutenant-governor, under that opinion, was made abortive by the action of the senate, by denying the lieutenant-governor-elect the presidency of the senate, Judge Hord's opinion loses none of its force as a convincing constitutional argument. Judge Hord, as a Democrat of the Jeffersonian and Jacksonian school, and in the ranks of the Indiana Democracy he at once, after coming to the state, took a front place, and his splendid abilities as a politician were at once recognized and appreciated.

In 1876 he was honored by being made a delegate to the St. Louis convention, which nominated Tilden and Hendricks. Judge Hord, as a platform speaker, has few peers in Indiana, an affirmation a hundred times demonstrated in the campaigns in which he has taken part, and in 1880, when he was made temporary chairman of the Democratic State convention, his address still lingers in the memory of those who heard it, as a masterpiece of oratory. It combined every element required for holding, influencing and kindling the enthusiasm of an audience, and during its delivery the vast audience was repeatedly wrought up to such heights of fevered enthusiasm that its frequent and prolonged applause amounted to a succession of ovations. And this great endowment of Judge Hord has always been employed for the welfare of the public in exposing wrongs, in vindicating rights and the abolishment of corruption wherever found. Judge Hord is now on the bench, to which position he was elected in 1892 and re-elected in 1898, a position which he adorns by his profound knowledge of the law, the dignity of his deportment and unblemished integrity. In the legal profession, Judge Hord is one of Indiana's Men of Progress. He is always found blazing out new pathways to higher elevations in the knowledge of law; and while mindful of maxims and precedents, he delights in bringing into prominence new ideas which are the trophies of learned and patient investigations.
