"We most heartily commend the woik in congress of Senator A. G. Foster and Congressmen W. L. Jones and F. W. Cushman. "The delegates selected by this con vention to attend the state conven tion at Tacoma are hereby instructed to vote as a unit for the renomination of Congressmen Jones and Cushman, and to use all honorable means to se cure their renomination." Jchn E. Humphries, who has announced his caniidacy for the nomination of supreme judge, does not aspire to succeed Judge Hadley on the bench, but, on the other hand, he does aspire to succeed Judge Reavis, whose regular term expires next January. Judge Hadley was appointed by the late Governor Rogers to serve out a fixed time created by the legislature and he has done so and has retired and no one con succeed him, for he was filling no place that will ever again exist. Because Judge Hadley was appointed by Governor Rogers to serve cut a time on the supreme bench created by the legislature it did not necessarily give him any priority rights foi the nomination to succeed Judge Reavis; therefore Mr. Humphries will be taking no undue political advantage of Judge Hadley in endeavoring to secure the nomination in order to succeed Judge Reavis at the expiration of his term of office. Judges Hadley and White held with the minority of the supreme court in a decision which terminated their tenure of' office and now he has no more specific claims for tha nomination to succeed Judge Reavis than any other private citizen or practicing attorney, and it is very doubtful if as much as some King county citizen, from which county at least one-fifth of all the legal business of the state comes, for such nomination. Mr. Humphries on a previous occasion in these columns very plainly stated his position as to King county getting a congressional nomination andsubsequently a senatorial election, which was to the effect that if his nomination would in any wise obstruct the election of Harold Preston to the United States senate or the nomination of Will E. Humphrey to the lower house of congress, then, he was no longer a candidate, for he realizes that King county is sorely in need of representation in congress and he wants to see her get it, and get it now. Yea, so anxious is he to see King county get such representation tnat he is perfectly willing to sacrifice his own candidacy if by so doing it would bring about such results. His nomination, however, he does not believe, will interfere with that of Mr. Humphrey or Mr. Preston, and King county being without representation on the bench at the present time, and King county furnish ing, as has already been said, one-fifth of all the legal business done in the state, should have representa tion on the supreme bench the same as in congress, and there being no other candidate from King county aspiring for the judicial nomination he feels that he can consistently push his claims before the coming state convention, and to that end will snaps his efforts between this and next Wednesday. A majority, if not all, of the delegates from King county to the state convention favor his nomina tion, and he believes that he already has sufficient strength outside of King county to warrant him in positively saying he will be nominated next Wednesday for supreme judge by the Republican state con vention.

PRICE FIVE CENTS An earnest appeal is made to you and each of you to at least subscribe for the only paper in the Northwest that is published in the direct interest of the Negro race in this section. Whatever else may be said against The Seattle Republican, it is undis putably Republican in and out of sea son. Whether the party nominee be favorable, friendly or hostile to either the paper or its editor, it never fails to support him just tha same. The Re publican may be a Wilson, an Ankeny or a Mcßride-Preston organ before the convention; but after the convention it is a party organ. It always eaves its differences and sore spots on the con vention floor, and for that reason it appeals to ycu as a Republican to show at 'east a subscription price ap preciation for a paper that is always with you and yet get no party emolu ments one way or the other.
