The campaign for the election of
judge for the Thirteenth judicial
district is drawiar to a close, and
the choice of the 'electors as to who
shall administer the law daring the
ensuisg- fcrar years will soon be
made manifest. The republican
convention has presented to the
voters of the district, as a candidate
tor that high and very important
office, in the person of EL M. Gqmest
a man of irreproachable private
character, of sterling qualities and
sympathetic heart, the foremost
lawyer in the district, the man best
qualified in every respect to sit upon
the bench, and adjudicate upon the
lives, liberty, and property of his

The Central Park Pallets Have a Sjstexa
of Their Owb.
I-very mounted policeman connected
with the Central park squad swears by
hi3 horse. Io other animal, in his opin
ion, is quite as good, sound or well
tanned for the cf ttiines difficult work
which they are called upon to perform.
This pride m their horses has led to a
friendly spirit of rivalry between the
men, which is nndoubtedlv the cause of
the excellence of the department. The
stopping of a runaway in the drives or
bridle patns is by no means an easy un
dertaking. The comparatively few seri
ous accidents resulting from runaways,
which during the greater portion of the
year average more Uuua 50 a month,
speak well for Sis skill and daring of
the mounted squad. Sergeant Eg an,
who has command cf the squad, de
clares that any one of Ins men can give
p s" and "q s" to any cowboy that
ever straddled a horse.
"We have had 'cow prrachers' -in our
ranksr" said the sergeant, "who could
pick up a handkerchief from the ground
while ridinir at breaknerk sneed. or
throw a lasso to perfection, fcnt when
it came to taking thmr lives in their
hands in stopping a runaway they were
'not in it' with some of our New York
boys who never motmM-d a horso until
they joined the squad. 111 warrant that

died. When all was in readiness, the
two men rode down the bridle path to
give an illustration of the system which
all the men have practiced, and studied
antil they now have it down to perfec
tion. Sergeant Egan halted and Bald
win, on nis norse Marry, went down the
path to get a good start. In a moment
he came flying toward the sergeant on $
dead gallop. Egan's horse pricked up
his ears, already scenting the work cut
out for it As Baldwin- came nearer
Egan's superb animal began to move
with ' gradually increasing speed until
the supposed runaway was alongside,
and then it ran neck anS. neck with
Baldwin's horse. v
Reaching out, the sergeant grasped
the bridle of Baldwin's horse, and his
own steed began to pull back, coming
to a complete standstill within ten
yards. Several more trials were made,
the men taking turns at stopping each
other. "You see, they cannot get away
from us," said the sergeant, "as our
horses understand their business as well
as the men. They never allow a run
away to get past them. A stern chasQ
is often a long chase. Under, the xegu
lations riders and drivers are- allowed to
move only at a certain speed within the
park. A runaway of course always ex
ceeds this pace, and the policeman's
horse detects the rapid patter of hoofs
as" quickly as he does himself." New

Mr. Lincoln was retained to assist two
other lawyers in the conduct of a case
of the greatest 'importance. "I will not

Hardin, "but it was one of the greatest
moment to the state and of importance
to the nation. The decision arrived at

together after the trial as to the amount
of the fee to be charged. They decided
that 5,000 was the least they could
take and concluded, to send their bill
for that amonnfc. Bt they waited for
Mr. Lincoln and laid the case before
him. They asked him what he thought
they ought to charge. He pondered over
the matter far a timeand finally said he
