Suicide by Hanging at 848 Hohman Hammond, IN. Medical Attendant H.G. White.

John H. Gillett, who was appointed July 2, 1892, to fill the
unexpired term of William Johnston, also served for ten years
on the circuit to which Lake was attached. Judge Gillett re-
signed January 25, 1902, to accept an appointment to the Su-
preme bench to fill the unexpired term of Francis E. Baker.
Judge Gillett was later elected as a member of the Supreme
court and served until January, 1909. Upon retiring from
the bench he again engaged in practice in Hammond, where
he has lived since he was admitted to the bar in 1881. Judge
Gillett was born in 1860 at Medina, New York, but has lived
practically all of his life in Indiana. He is the author of two
legal publications which have received high commendation
at the hands of his fellow members of the bar. His work on
"Criminal Law" was first issued in 1888, a second edition
coming from the press in 1895. In 1897 he issued "Indirect
and Collateral Evidence."
