s "'The County Judgeship.
We commend the following extract, from
the Chicago Timet, to the honest considera
tion of the oil "straight-outers'! who are
always bo anxious to do everything by
party machinery, from President down:
The willingness of American voters to
take office to take any office is illustra
ted bv the number and the kind ot candi
dates seeking the new position of probate
judge, created by the late legislature.
Although months must elapse before the
office comes into existence, applicants are
more numerous than flies around a molas
ses barrel. Most of these aspirants are
called "lawyers." Some of them do not
know enough law to earn a month's board
in its lccitimate and intelligent practice,
Most of them do not earn enough in the
profession to live by it. 1 bat is the rea
son they want the new judgeship. Most
of them lack the very qualifications which
the peculiar duties of the position require;
that s another reason why they want it,
Most of them would not be entrusted with
the management of a widow's dower or an
orphan's estate: that is why they want to
get hold of all the probated property of
the county. t
The position demands sound legl knowl
edge, and unquestioned and unquestiona
ble integrity, experience in business affairs
methodical habits of mind, and ""the abil
ity to plod." a r&re talent, but an essen
tial one in the judicial officer whose chief
function will be the examination of trus
Politics should not be permitted to
have anything to do with this, or with
any other, judicial nomination. Ihe oar
association is best qualified to recommend
a proper man, and the people will not hes
itate to endorse its recommendation.
ANOTHER LETTER 'FROM CALX
Something About two Bock Island Boyt

Stories,' The .Weather.
Galt, Cal., June 18th, 1877.
To the Editors of The Argus.
1 am stopping at this place ior a few
days. It is a small town situated on the
Central Pacific It. It., about 27 miles west
from Sacramento. Since my last writing
I have not found much news to write. I
have seen Osborne, the operator, who mar
ried Wood's daughter at Rock Island. He
is agent at a small station on the Los An
geles branch or the U. r. it. ana is
doing first rate but don't like the country.
i ou couldn t raise a pound ot gram on
fifty acres in the locality ot his station.
Ben Wilson s brother is at Keen9, a small
station on the same road but his is a
worse place than where Osborne is. It is
up in the mountains where not many white
men would live.
Bob Inger8oll is out this way telling
ghost stories to crowded houses at a dol
lar a head. He is just the man for this
country. The settlers don t believe la trod
or the devil. The Cahformans arc wild to
hear him, but they don't like to have their
wives accompany them. He will be the
cause ot a great many divorces in this
weather is very warm out this way.
Last Wednesday was the hottest day ever
known in this state it was 120 at this
place, and 95 at San Francisco.

iave no right to ask the people to vote for
them to discharge the high functions of
judge. Now we do not know that Judge
Daggett in such a man, his friends may
have taken upon themselves a license not
warranted, and that he is not a political
blatherskite. We think we do not mis
judge the sentiment and feeling of this
jadicial district when we say that the peo
ple want in the office of judge a man more
than they want the politician. They have
had enough mere politicians on the bench.
We hope the loth Judicial District (Knox
county is in that district) will, when they
come to elect the third judge in August,
select some man who is worthy of the po
sition, and not vote for one simply because
he is a Republican or a Democrat. When
a man accepts a judgeship he should
eschew all political work, simply going to
the polls and voting as he pleases. It has
become quite fashionable of late years for
some of cur judges to make their high
oOioe merely contributory to some political
advancement. Our highest court has had
within the past twenty years men of this
stamp. We believe it to be all wrong
Therefore, we hope, whoever is elected to
the position, may be a man who shall re
spect the high office, and that in the selec
tion the question as to which party he owes
tealty may not be asked, but the more im

Prof. Swing, in his paper, the Chicago
Alliance, commenting on the trial of Elder
McGhee, at Dixon, says, "thut such a
murder could be committed by a professed
follower and preacher of Jesus Christ,
would seem to transcend human power of
belief." The Alliance continues:
"As there are politicians who, from the
love of political truths become statesmen,
and as there are others who run tor office
because of the pay roll, so there are mean
little nouls who select the pulpit because
they can gain $2,000 a year in that calling
with more ease than they could gain that
sum iu the corn-held, or the stone-quarry,
or wood-pile. Preaching is a pursuit, and
it is no more unusual for an unfit man to
enter it than it is unusual for an unfit man
to labor to be elected to congress or to the
office of county treasurer, or president ol
a railway or sank. l ew arc the men in
any ago who doubt their entire fitness to
receive the pay of an office, even if they
may have doubts about their fitness to dis
charge its duties."
J ohn Sherman and Ruin.
The Peoria Democrat now and then
makes a dash at the federal policy,and when
it does it isn't always very choico in ex
pression. In a late issue the Democrat
says of John Sherman's and the Acting
President's forced resumption tendency as
"The utterly damnable financial policy
ot the feueral treasury, is squeezing the lite
out ot business in the insane attempt at
resumption by contraction, by the de
monetization ot silver, and the ret isal to
coin more than a definite and limited
amouut of "subsidiary" or other kind of
coin. "John Sherman, and lluin!" should
be the motto of the treasury.

Brown's GINGER will be found invaluable in all
cases of Cramp orother disorders caused by change
of water or bad watvr, and a Jew drops used regu
larly by travelers will usually act as a Preventive,
and ward off eucb attacks. To the aged and those
recovering from illness, a email quantity with a
Jttle sweetened water will befound to giveatrength
and refreshment: the Ginger having no reaction,
which is the great objection to the uBe ot alcoholic
stimulants. Producing all the good effects of a
Mustard Plaster, without the possibility of blister
ing the skin.) its application on flannel is most effi
cacious. And in the case of persons predisposed
