Judge W. J. Gilmore, Democratic candidate for Supreme Bench, has been on the Common Pleas Bench for twelve years, and has decided 6,000 cases in Butler and Preble Counties. The Supreme Court, in all that time has never reversed but one of his decisions. That’s a pretty record for a Judge – Cincinnati Enquirer, Saturday.
The reason that the Supreme Court has never reversed but one of his decisions is, that none of them ever got there. Most of them were reversed in the District Court, and remanded. At a term of the District Court, held not long ago, over half of his decisions reviewed were reversed, as the record will show. Hamilton Telegraph.

Among the gratifying results in Ohio, we have recorded none with more pleasure than the election of our old friend, Abner Haines, formerly of Wayne co., Indiana, but now a citizen of Eaton, Preble county, Ohio, as District Judge, from the district composed of the counties of Butler, Preble and Darke. We are gratified at the success of our old friend, and we are particularly gratified at the defeat of that political apostate, Elijah Vance, who, says the Cincinnati Enquirer, "began his apostacy from principles while in the Constitutional Convention, and closed it in the late campaign by bolting entirely from his party and joining the whigs of Butler, Darke and Preble, to obtain the Judgeship for that Judicial District. He is defeated in all the three counties; In his own by 553; in Darke by 260; in Preble by 143, making the majority for Mr. Haines, his Democratic competitors, 956. This ia a wise disposal of a dishonest and unprincipled trickster. Thus perish all traitors!" — Indiana State Sentinel [Wednesday, October 29, 1851, "Daily Ohio Statesman" (Columbus, OH) - KT - Sub by FoFG]

Drunkenness on the bench received two sad illustrations in this State last week. Judge Wylie, of the Common Pleas Court, in Columbus, was so much under the influence of liquor Thursday during a murder trial that he made a terrible exhibition of himself. The members of the Preble County bar met Dec. 7, and requested Judge Gilmore, of the Common Pleas Court to resign. He has neglected his business by going on protracted sprees, and been taken from houses of ill repute several times. Marietta Register.
