The Harborough Mail praises J.W. Logan

Mourning the closure of the town's magistrates court in 2011, the Harborough Mail described my hero J.W. Logan thus:
When the Doddridge Road court opened in Harborough, seven magistrates would sit together as a single bench, instead of the modern three. 
In 1911, JW Logan, MP for Harborough, took the chair: an exemplary employer, if controversial and sometimes pugilistic as a politician, he was a JP for 40 years.
No MP could ask for a better epitaph.
