The Judgo was asked this morning if
ho had decided as to a re-appointment
and stated that ho had decided to ac
cept another term If it was offered.
'Several attorneys have called upon
mo to ask whether I desired to tako
another term," said tho judge, "and I

I would accept. This Is all I have

heard him. Ho was too late to register.

the latter part of tho tour of the band
has been a big success. In fact ho de

the rest of the boys fared, for they had
to go to Cohen themselves about their

It. The band did splendidly during
the latter part of the tour and were
to play their way west.

the steamer leaving San Francisco on
October 30. I thing they will como by
