SATURDAY NIGHT THOUGHTS.
During th. week an old LI n count-'
school matter has received a coveted ap
poin'invnt in Portland, that of Judge of
tbe Circuit C'lurl.and will now be for the
first time Judge Genrre. Mr. George lia
had for a nootl many yara the title o
Hon. before his name, secured by bring
in t'ongress, and now in the prime of
I'fe he eecures perhaps a more honorable
one. Mr. George' career from anon
political standpoint bas been an honor
able one in nc any respects. His person
al character has particularly been above
reproach. This should be the case with
a judge. His record should be clean,
and just as soon as he arsames bis posi
tion he should drop politics entirely, so
that there would be no occaaion for pre
judice. Will Mr. George do this? Per
haps. The comparatively low price of wheat,
71 cents, during the week, had tbe effect
to make a material difference in the liqu
idation o! accounts. It makes a good
deal of difference in many respects
whether wheat is 71 or 81 cents.
