to decide Tuesday. The court house was literally packed with the prominent tax payers of the city. The meeting was called to order by Hiland Southworth, who placed Hon. W. S.

Stambaugh in nomination for chairman of the meeting. The nomination was sustained and Mr. Southworth made secretary. The chairman stated in a few well chosen remarks, the objects of the meeting, and then the ical prodigies--the Markee familyfavored the audience with some excellent music upon their banjos. After the music, the chairman presented Mr.

C. A. Gregory, who made a very able address, accompanied by figures that will not lie. upon the matter. His speech was at times eloquent, his figures were conclusive and convincing.

Those who had never heard Mr. Gregory speak were not prepared for so masterly an argument as was given by that gentleman. He spoke perhaps forty minutes and was frequently applauded. his talk, the Markee family rendered another selection upon their banjos and Mr. Lebold was called for.

Mr. Lebold responded, as he always does respond when a matter of public interest is at stake, and read a letter from Prof. Hay that he had just received, stating that he (the Professor) could come to this city and make a geological survey next week. Mr. Lebold was heartily in favor of the proposi- The very large number of citizens that turned out to the gas meeting last night at the court house was the best possible evidence that our people were fully aware of the importance of the project that they will be called upon a failure to vote is virtually a vote against the proposition, as it requires a majority of all the legal voters of the city to carry the bonds.

Mr. Lebold was candid, practical, and thoroughly in earnest. Upon the conclusion of Mr. Lebold's ready Hon. J.

Hodge was called remarks, the old, reliable and ever out, and, although he said he had nothing to say, managed to interest the audience for twenty minutes. He told the experience of Fort Scott, described the gas wells that he saw while there, and the many things for which gas was used. The doctor is thoroughly in earnest in this matter, always is in everything, and is interested in the tion and exhorted the people to be sure and vote on the subject, as under the law that governs such elections as this, proper way. An opportunity was given for any one to express their opinion, either for or against the project, but not a word was uttered against it. The chairman said that it was positively necessary in this undertaking, as in all projects, to do something religious, and he delegated C.

G. Bessey to take up a collection for the musicians. While this was being done, the boys played some beautiful music on their mandolins and guitars. The collection amounted to and the meeting adjourned. If the interest and enthusiasm of last night's meeting can be taken as any indication of the feeling of the people, the bonds will carry with big majority, and we sincerely trust that they will, as we consider this project one of vital importance to us as individuals and as a municipality.

When a man comes into the office and planks down the cash, and says, me your paper for a year," that means business. When one says, want your paper but haven't got the money now," that's all right. When he takes out of the postoffice for eral years, and then sends back refused, that's meanness. When a man spends from ten cents to a dollar for cigars or beer, and says he can't afford to take his home paper, that's a no such thing. When a man borrows his neighbor's paper to read every week, that's cheek.

What the papers say on the Judgeship question: It will not make much difference what the Republican judicial convention may do, the farmers are going to vote for Judge Nicholson. They say he has kept the docket cleaner, and forced business more energetically than has been done in a long time. You can stand on a street corner of a Saturday and hear the Republicans and Democrats talk this way. We are entirely unconcerned about the matter, and hence can say what we see and hear.Junction City Union. (Republican.) THE JUDICIAL JUDGESHIP.

We take pleasure in placing before our readers, this week, the name of C. F. Mead, of Abilene, as a candidate for Judge of the Eighth Judicial District. Mr. Mead is a man who has never before come before the people of our county or district for an office of any kind, and inasmuch as he is a Dickinson county man, we can see no good reason why Dickinson county should not give him a generous support.

As to his qualifications for that office we have to say that he graduated at Haryard Law School in 1874, thirteen years ago; practiced in Boston for five years, and came to Dickinson county in 1879. Since which time he has built practice and reputation second to none in. Dickinson county and, in fact, in this Judicial District. He is a gentle-. man of high attainments, and has the make-up for a careful and judicious judge.

Dickinson county has never been honored with the Judgeship although it is, and always has been the largest county in the district, and her docket is always much larger than that of any county in the district. Davis county furnished the judge for a number of years; Morris county then followed with that honor for four years, and it is now Dickinson's turn. We have a good man nominated and there is no reason why he should not be supported, preferences, irrespective of party or party and if we mistake not, he will be elected by a rousing -Hope Dispatch. THE JUDGESHIP. Hon.

M. B. Nicholson is an independent candidate for re-election to the Judgeship of the Eighth Judicial District." Judge Nichoison is not a partisan candidate in any sense, but is a candidate of the people. He had intended at the close of his official term to retire to domestic life and look after the interests of home and family; but a spontaneous call for his candidacy by petitions numerously signed from all parts of the district, regardless of party affiliations, has induced him to allow his fellow citizens again the use of his name, elected, his services for another term. This district always has been fortunate in securing the best legal talent for this office, but no judge has ever presided in the several courts of this district that was more thoroughly qualified than Judge Nicholson.

The great mass of the people of Ottawa county know that Judge Nicholson is no politicion. Whatever may be his public or private views on political economy, his constituents care not a cent. They know that he has never allowed his partisan feeling to bias his or warp his decisions. It has therefore been the policy in this district to separate the judgeship as far from partizan strife as possible. In pursuance of this determination upon a the part of the people, all parties united 1 upon Mr.

Nicholson as a conservative non-partizan, and placed him upon the bench in this district. The great mass of the substantial voters of Ottawa county are not yet ready to reverse this policy and drag the sacred ermine of judicial purity through the muddy pool of party politics. -Delphos Courier.
