Occasion to give
our feas&ns lor bcltevmi 'nlm worth v nt
Ifie roiipon.ofHie people of this district,
Tho UuuKTUr id tills city copies our ar
ticle, and declares that there are a few
men in this district who are disposed to
glvorthe' contest a -political turn. We
think the lit i.i.KTi.v is mistaken. True.
there are other men announced, but we
do not believe the.v propose to run be
cause iney areite,iuuiieansor Democrats,
but because tin y think tliev are naaliifud
mul worthy. . The Sun does not propose
to ioko cudgel in uciiuii oi any man, nut
have oxpressed our opinion of Judge
Dud's qualifications, without regard to
his politics or political record. Wo hope
the Bi i.i.etin will pursno a like course,
and object to no man on account of his
politics or political record. JSun.
t The Ulllctis Is not mistaken when it
a'sscrU that there nro a "few men in tho
district who are dtspasod to glvo to tho
contest" forjudge a polltlcnl turn. It is
.not necessary to say whether these 'men
are Republicans or Democrats; but we
hwm that circulars havo been sent out
over tho dKrlct advocating tho calling
of a convention to nomlnato a candidate
who will make tito race as a party roan.
'Wo' do, not , believe, however, ."that
any ' ot " the gentlemen t whose
as caadldfites sanction th efforts to
make the contest a wif leal one, The
convention movement, so tar as it has
gone, hat been Irt the interest ot a man
wbo is not as yet known as a candidate.
This much we have said to prove that we
were not mistaken when we said
there were (hose In tho district who were
"disposed to give the contest for
Judge a political turn.' Like
the Sun, we do not desire politics to
have anything to do with this nee. At
we have said before, Judge h . 1 not be
politicians, and the man who - ' he
office through tlu- machinations party
Is not a safe man for the position, mul we
doubt his ability to nrnke an Impartial
judge. We object to no man on ac -tint
of his politics, but have expieed M ef
ereuc) - lor Judge Doff bi-ca-ise we
belevM hlin to be a man of rare leg d at
tainments, and In every way qualified to
dii-charge the duties of Uu; high und re
