WI received an invitation to at
tend the Episcopal entertainment
given on Wednespsy evening. Court
week, and stirring business combined
to defraud us of the enjoyment in
volved in participation, but our best
wishes went all the same.
{I Tm: hack and drsy business in
Port Townsend is hardly in danger
of a collapse to any considerable ex;
tent, judging from the; fine lteliieles
hrodght up from ‘fj‘ri'sco'fihls weal.
by Mr. T. M. Hammond. This gem
t'eman.“m'ear.s business,” no doubt,
hence we say “clear the track," or
words to that eifoct.
Alone the attorneys attending
court this week, we notice Messrs.
Struve, Jscobs, McNaught, Burke,
Hanford and Hainea, all of Seattle.
Those, with Messrs. Bradshaw, Hal
ler, Smith, Blanchard and Kuhn, of
this place, are enough to run a good,
siudoourt by themselves. The of
ficers of the court, Judge Greene,
Marsha! Hopkins, U. S. Attorney
Allen and Prosecuting Attorney
Ballard, are all in a tendancv.
“WILL, how do you like the;
Maine vote?" This is what the
Democrats ask nowadays. But then ‘
the Maine vote has nothing to do;
with the Fireman's Ball this evening. 1
The firemen still owe a balance on 1
their hose, and they want to pay it ‘
up. They have accomplished won~‘
ders and made personal sacrifices in l
order to provide the city with a com- l
plete outfit of tire extinguishing tip-1
paratus—and now the people ought
to help them out, especially as they !
can havea little enjoyment at the:
same time. 1‘
“LAST week, Bro. Weir of the
Axons mounted his snow white
ohms! and took. cruise up to
Chimaoum and [.udlow trying to se
cure delegates who would support
him for cho omce of Probate Judge,
but he found that D. W. Smith had
been over the sumo ground and se
cured thadeiogates for himself, so
he returned a udder if not wiser
man.”-—“Democrutio Press,”ol the
9th in“.
Our trip to Chimacum and Lud—
low had nothing in the world to do
with the nomination for Probate
Judge, hence the conclusion is that
Frank Myers is just spitting on his
hands and starting in for the most
vigorous lying campaign ever record
ed. For the first gmund hop he has
discounted everything in the coun
try, and he bide fair to make old
Ananiae ashamed of himself betore
he gets through with the business.
Sick em, Frank! You don’t hurt
anybody, and your practice will
qualify you for a poet of prominence
in the Saxons club.
EvzaYaonY is gratified by the in
formation that Hon; Irving Ballaid
has been re-nominated for Prosecu
ting Attorney in this district. The
Seattle “Dispatch” man tried to cov
er Mr. Ballard with mud on account
of his action in the Hill case at Se
attle recently; but the legal opinions
of competent jurists, and the cita
tions of law brought to bear upon
the subject, showed that he knew
what he was about. In addition to
this, Judge Greene’s published card
in reference to the matter clearly
proved that Mr. Ballard was entirely
guiltlvss of any improper action in
the premises, We are as much
pleased over this thorough vindica
tion as anyone else can be. Our
candidate for Prosecuting Attorney
has not only demonstrated his ability
to discharge: well the duties of his
position but he will he elected again
by an oterwhelming vote.

The Democratic convention for
Jefferson county, was held in this
city last Saturday. After the usual
preliminaries of organising, the fol
lowing county ticket was nominated:
Commissioners, H. L. Tibbais, of
Port Townsend, E. B. Mastlclr, of
Port Discovery, and R. D. Attridge,
01 Port Ludlow; Sherifi', B. S. Mil
ler; Treasurer, J. A. Kuhn; Audi
tor, C. H. H. Jones; Probate Judge,
H. L. Blanchard; Coroner, J. G.
Clinger; School Supt., Miss Jennie
Hancock; Surveyor, F. W. James;
Wreckmsster, 'l‘. Torj csec; Cousts
ble, Chas. Finn. The names of J.
A. Kuhn, H. L. Blanchard, J. J.
Hunt and J. E. Pugh were presented
to the convention as candidates for
delegatee to the Territorial con'ven
tion at Kalama. The vote stood:
Kuhn, 14; Willlsdn, 12; H. L.
Blanchard, 83 Pugh, 6 and Hunt, 43
whereupon theirst named were de
clared elected. 'l‘" following isthe
county committee, elected for the
ensuing two yeare: F. W. Petty
grove,cheirmaa, H. C. Willson, JLE
E.Pugh, E. Strand, M. Burk, E-
P. Brennan, T. Dagnan.
It will be seen 'by this showing}
that the Democrats have anticipated r
the nomination of Messrs. Mssticlt,
and Attridge by the Republicanefi
for Commissioners. Their nomina—‘
tione from their own party are madei
up of a few who will doubtless make
good ofiioers if elected, and others
who are simply put into fill up with,
the party having no hope whatever
of eiecting them. After the Repubo
licans make their nominstions we
will have a better chance to compare
notes and comment.
MB. J oeeph Foresmnn, sherifi' of
Clclcm county, clcims that he was
misrepresented in connection with
the Neah Bey taxes; that he on) go
and demnnd the the: in question;
that he was not and is not aware of
any law requiring him to collect lio‘
censes from echoeners, &c., &0. Our
informant must have been in error
in one or two particulcrs. However,
our subsequent note of explanation
must have acquitted us of any in
tention to do Mr. Foresmnn injustice.
We are free to any thct we think he
has performed the duties of his of
fice acceptably to the people. and
the meager delinqnent tn list of the
county chow: that he has not been
remiss in collecting county dues.
