Morrla Dliponeil of Her Firat San Franolaro Call. Soon after the women of "Wyoming enfranchised some gentlemen de cided that it would be well to have a woman justice of the peace, so they selected Mrs. Morris, a Connecticut woman, who had been an earnest and judicious woman suffragist, and worked for her appointment in South Pass City, the county seat of Sweetwater county. Charles P. Jackson of the California Pioneer, tells the story : This recalls a very pleasant meeting with a Mrs. Morris, at Albany, N. Y.,in '76 or about that time, who was then making her home with her son there, who nuy be the same Mrs.Morris. Mrs. Morris had recently been an active jus tice of the peace in Wyoming, and gave me the circumstances attending her ap pointment, and her experience with her first, case in court. It seemed there had grown up a little feeling toward tho in cumbent—not from any maladministra but because he had held the office tor a long time, and another man, who had his friends, wanted the position. There was growing up quite a feeling, ! when it occurred to a couple of business , friends of both, to try and allay the feeling by suggesting that "Mother Morris'' be made magistrate. Before calling on Mrs. Morris they called the incumbent and would-be squire and stated the object in view, viz.: that they both yield in favor of Mrs. Morris, which both, on the enthusiasi moment, agreed to do. pointed committee then called Morris, and stated the purpose of their visit. Mrs. Morris at once said : "Me a magistrate? Why ! I never looked in a law book in my life. What could I do in dispensing justice? The idea is pre posterous." "Well, Mrs. Morris, know you and your sense of justice, and have all confidence in your honor and integrity, and the candidates for the office have both assured us that if you will take the office they will cheer fully resign all claims, and will cry effort for your appointment.'' "Well, if these are the facts, I will con sent 1o take the office, but you know, gentlemen, that I know nothing about the duties, but I will do the best I can." In due time the appointment came and Mrs. Morris was installed as justice of the peace of Wyoming. Tho docket of "the incumbent" was handed over and in due time came the first case. This a trivial matter between two liti gants, botli well known to Mrs. Morris, which had been commenced before the former justice. Of course, it became known through of the The self-ap Mrs. Of course, it became known through the town that Mrs. Esquire Morris was going to have her first trial and every spare citizen must, of course, be present to hear it.

They both went, und, on arrival at lier house, she turned to George and said : "See here, George, you owe Charles much; now y up right hero of you another piece of pie as long you live." They both burst into a hearty laugh, and did then and there sotilo' the matter in dispute, and after heartily congratulating the squire" on her justice, went out and ttdd the story, which known through the town, and Mrs. Morris' first cas tho pardon, sir, but this court îr this just pay him and settle I will never give either became court h«;c: f .•as its justice. It was a fact that she had no jurisdic tion over the case, but why she knew it to be. so she could not say, only that she knew it to be so.
