Head, Charles C. M.
The Redding Daily Searchlight, Thursday, January 22, 1914

Pneumonia Sets In, Complicating Case, And Notable Jurist Succumbed Wednesday at Age of 51

Pneumonia, that began a deadly attack a few days ago, was too much for the weakened constitution of Charles C. M. Head, superior judge of Shasta county, department 1, and at 8 o'clock Wednesday morning his spirit passed, following a day and night of unconsciousness. Dr. W. W. Head of Chico, a brother of the judge who arrived Tuesday evening, was never recognized.

Bright's disease that began nearly four years ago, when the jurist had just been elected to his second term by the people of Shasta county, had been persistent it its ravages, though Judge Head frequently rallied and he was frequently seen on the streets and occasionally on the bench, over which Judge J. E. Barber presided the greater part of the time. Trips to health resorts, while temporarily beneficial, in the end availed nothing. The sufferer was continually losing and for a year he was but the shadow of his former robust self. The last time he presided in court was December 10, 1913. Judge Head was the father of the juvenile court of this county. It was his particular pride and he devoted himself to it as long as health permitted. The deceased was not a fraternalist. He belonged only to the Ancient Order of Workmen. While not a church member, Judge Head was a frequent attendant at religious worship.

Judge Head was twice married. By his first wife he leaves a son and a daughter, both living in San Francisco--Harold Head and Mrs. Gladys Rasmussen. In Redding, November 17, 1897, he married Miss Alpha E. Garoutte, who is now made a widow. Judge Head's aged mother, Mrs. Margaret Head, resides in Watsonville with her daughter. The decedent leaves two brothers and four sisters: Dr. W. W. Head, Chico; Albert Head, Santa Rosa; Mrs. Thomas Elkington, San Francisco; Mrs. Jason Howard, San Francisco; Mrs. Edward Page, Dinuba, and Mrs. Alvin Finley, Watsonville.

Charles M. Head was born in Arkansas, December 6, 1862. The family came to California in 1865. His father died when Judge Head was a boy of eighteen. He was then thrown on his own resources and had to help support the family. He studied alone and finally was able to teach school. He was able to attend the Santa Rosa college, a Methodist school of the past, for only a short term. Continuing to teach school, he studied law.

Judge Head was admitted to the bar in Yolo county. In the early nineties, when everyone thought he did not have a ghost of a show, he was elected district attorney of Yolo county. In the big railroad strike of 1894 several important murder cases were an outgrowth. He prosecuted them all successfully. Retiring from the office of district attorney in Yolo county, Judge Head came to Redding and opened law offices. He formed a partnership with J. M. C. Murphey, but this was soon dissolved and for several years he practiced alone.

Judge Head was a Democrat in politics. In 1902 he was the party nominee for superior judge. He was elected and took his seat on the bench in January, 1903. The legislature that met in 1905 created a second department of the superior court, George W. Bush being appointed to the new position. Judge Head always held the second department was unnecessary, and to show that the people thought as he did he decided to run for Judge against Judge Bush in the fall election of 1906, though he had two years of his own term yet to serve. T. W. H. Shanahan and Judge Bush were both candidates against Judge Head, but he was elected. The higher courts decided that he was disqualified to succeed Judge Bush. In November, 1908, Judge Head was re-elected for a full term of six years more. This term would have expired at the last of the present year.

The funeral will be held this afternoon at 2:30 from the Baptist church. Rev. Coates will officate and music will be furnished by a quartette.

Judge J. E. Barber, of department 2 of the superior court, pays a tribute in the following words: Judge Charles M. Head was a true and a loyal friend of all who were fortunate enought to know him in life, and he was a tried and devoted friend of Shasta county, where he had cast his fortune many years ago. His record illuminatingly speaks for itself in this regard. He loved its people, and in his death we have all sustained a personal loss. I recognized his worth shortly after I identified myself with Shasta county, when he was an active and honored member of the bar and before his elevation to the bench. He reposed confidence in me and I in him, and it was largely due to this respect we held for each other that resulted in my becoming a candidate for judge of department 2 of the superior court after its creation, and our relationship since we became colleagues upon the bench has been an honorable and a close one, each depending upon the other in the conscientious belief that the interest of the people would be safeguarded, regardless of everything and within the law. We never lost each other's confidence.

His personality was engaging and kindly, and while in the enjoyment of health he never shirked a duty--it can be truthfully said of Judge Head he was never lazy. He loved his work when he was upon the bench; he loved justice with all his heart, and his highest, indeed his only ambition, was to devote his life to its administration.

At this time I can say no more than this: His character was marked by a great courtesy and consideration which always attended him upon his discharge of his duties as a judge, always marked his relations with the bar, and earned that popular confidence which goes out to him whom the people believe to be a merciful and considerate as well as a just and impartial judge

Death Claims Another Pioneer

PETER HOFF, a pioneer of Shasta County, died Tuesday in Redding of the infirmities of age. A peculiar incident in his life was the loss of thousands of dollars at the time of a fire many years ago in the old town of Shasta.
