And inasmuch as the non partisan judiciary for which Tiif. Ak GCb has always cneiished an abiding hope, and in which poeattlUty it will ever repose its confidence, is not within the pale of present condi tions, it is BSAasfied that partisan bias can best be el. ruinated from the consider.: ions uflec.ing the judge ship by the renoim nation of the pres. eel incumbents on the pure question of merit.

B. des there wre none, so fir as Thk Amirs I now!, who doubted that Judge Big elow's election for the unexpired term of Judge Smith, carried a pur pose to retire him when the time came for the eleeti n of the full tt?rm ';dge. and it is generally considered that he will be recbosen. As for ft r Gest, he tas probably made his customary political blun der: either he has gene iDto the con test haphazard in takiag it for granted that Judge Pleasants would not be a candidate, or else it is a de liberately premeditated purpose on his part to wage a contest before knowing Jndge Pleasant' positi tm, and then to assutr.e that it is too Ute to withdraw.
