The sp eial is pointed and 1 .tercsii.nL and we give it without further comment: • Ni.w Voui;, Nov. 2J.—Since Mr. f levels’ 11 returned from tin Thur man hampict he lias said to many friends who have called upon him that it was perfectly apparent to him that the masses in the Went were not only in sympathy with the position he took in his celebrated t uilt mes-, • ace. but were also apparently dc-1 tei mined t hat he should had them in | the contest ill 1*112. •■Never before lias Mr. Cleveland | manifested any particular interest in , his own political fortunes, hut now il ; is observed that he speaks with free-, dom not only of the general situa- j l ion, Imt of his approaching candi- j (lacy. makrs lio secret of his will-, ingitoss to again lead his party and j is .superbly confident that lie will lie selected, whatever the machinations of New York politicians are. ‘ l'lie recent elections are said to have wrought a great change in the ox-Prosident’s mind. "A month ago he looked with doubt, if not with actual repugnance, upon another campaign f<yr the Pres ident'\ ; now he regards it as inevi table.'” We will soon have to hold a special election for an Associate Justice of tin Supreme Court, to till the vacan cy occasioned by the death of .fudge Saudels. and in looking over the State fora suitable man for the posi tion, Hie Press can find no one that it is so much inclined to favor as •fudge (i. P. Smoote. Judge Sinoote made a good race a year ago last spring, and in a gallant speech, for the sake of harmony. withdrew his name from before the convention. He has always been a faithful and zealous worker in the cause of Democracy, lie is as wcli qualified for the place as any man ill the State, and lie deserves the recogni tion at the hands of his party. l’lie Press would he glad to see him offer for the vacancy, and we would be doubly glad to see him elected.— Washington Press. We thank our esteemed contempo rary for the above very complimen tary notice and advocacy of our friend and " fellow-townsman, Judge IJ, l*. Smoote, for Associate Justice. Owing to ill health Judge Smoote says he could not lake the place if tendered him. We regret this. l'lie lower House of the next Con gress, having a very large Democrat ic majority great responsibility will rest upon it, as the country will ex pect much tit its hands. A free coinage bill, a low tariff law. and other very important measures should !>■ passed as early as possible, throwing the responsibility af their becoming a law upon the Senate.
