In our last issue, we stated that the Hon. E. E. Mouton was out of danger, and would come to give us a term of court, on Monday last the 18th inst., but unfortunately, God, the Almighty Judge had in his omnipotent decree, decided different and had called towards him, our excellent judge to grant him, in his merciful justice, the reward which our good friend E. E. Mouton deserves.
When we received the news of his death our paper was already printed, and it was too late for us to correct this mistake, which was due to a letter received by one of
our friends stating the very fact, we had mentioned about his health, and also to an order from his
Honor to the Sheriff, to adjourn court on the 18th inst.
Proceedings of the Bar
VERMILIONVILLE La., April 14.'81.
A meeting of the Bar Association of Lafayette Parish was held this day at the office of M. E. Girard, Esq., to consider the event of the death of Hon. Ed. E. Mouton, late Judge of the 25th Judicial District.
On calling the meeting to order the President stated its object, and on motion to that effect, the following were constituted a committee to draft resolutions expressive
of the sentiments of the bar on the death of Judge Mouton : M. E. Girard, C. Debaillon, M. F. Rigues and John Clegg, who subsequently reported the following resolutions which were unanimously adopted :
Your committee present the following as faintly expressing the sentiments of the Bar Association of Lafayette Parish on this occasion.
The Bar of this Parish has heard with profound emotion the
death of Edouard Eugene Mouton, late Judge of the Twenty-Fifth Judicial District Court.
Judge Mouton commenced and finished his life in this Parish. He went out from here a boyish soldier, in the late war, he returned a full grown man. He was called
to the bar as a resident of this Parish and until he went on the bench, was distinguished alike for his unwearied industry, his polished attainments and the unflagging zeal for the rights and interests committed to his charge.
The Bar has lost an ornament of which its members were justly proud.
He seemed in two short years to have attained the full stature of a just and upright judge. As a judge he tempered justice with mercy and at the same time received the full confidence and approbation of the good of the com-
munity. "No professional attachments, no taint of prejudice marred his decisions."
In all the other relations of life, as husband, brother, son, friends,he was gentle, amiable, reverent and generous.
The loss of such a lawyer and such a man will be long felt and deeply mourned.
1. Resolved, That we sympathize with his bereaved family in their deep sorrow and loss.
2. That as a testimony of respect to him who has occupied such high places in our State and in our association, the Bar will attend his funeral and wear the usual badge of morning for thirty days.
3. That these resolutions be communicated by the Dist. Attorney to the courts of this District and Circuit with the request that they he entered on their records.
4. That a copy of these resolutions he communicated to the family of the deceased by the President of this Association.
On motion, District Attorney J. A. Chargois, was authorized in behalf of the Bar to move that the above resolutions be spread upon the minutes of the District Court at its next session.
It was moved and seconded,that the members of the Bar proceed to the funeral in a body, and that the officers of the Court be invited to join them.
On motion. 0. C. Mouton. Esq., was admitted to membership in this association. On motion the meeting was then adjourned.
