Editorial Correspondence of the Gazette. WASHINGTON, Dec. 18, 1891. DEAK GAZETTEm: —The chief interest here to citizens of Connecticut centres just now in the U. S. -Judgeship made vacant by the promotion of Judge Chipman. There are a dozen candidates for the position, but the two most prominent contestants for the place seem to be Frank L. Hunger ford of New Britain, and for twenty years the law partner of ex-commissioner of patents Mitchell. The other is W. K. Townsend of New Haven. Both of the above are exceptionally able lawyers. Ex-Congressman Buck of Hartford has been urged for the place by his friends and it was understood it would not have been unwelcome to him,but he has joined most other Hartford lawyers of both' parties in recommending Hungerford. The same is true of Lawyer Stanton of Hartford. It is understood that the President desires to select a young lawyer of high standing in his profession, and that he will not decide on the selection until after the holiday recess or sometime in January. Mr. Mitchell is now here on an important Ansonia patent case and incidentally doing whatever he can for his friend and law-partner Mr. Hungerford, who would seem to be just a little ahead of Town-send in the race. Hungerford has the recommendation of several leading members of the Fairfield Co. Bar. Congressman DeForest is still here, but Russell and Wilcox have gone home to remain over the holiday recess, as no business of importance will be transacted in either House of Congress till January. There has been a hungry horde of Connecticut applicants for positions.under the Door Keeper of the House and several have secured pretty fat plums. Their good luck only extends over two years, however. Mrs. O. L. Ferry is said to have left for Nor walk. Miss Mary has been promoted at the Patent Office to the special work of translating and type-writing French. As ever, B. An Exciting Runaway. A horse attached to a box wagon in vhich were a lady and gentleman ran away about 4.30 o'clock yesterday afternoon when in front of the Riverside cemetery. The lady was thrown out, but was not seriously injured. The shafts in some manner became detached from the wagon and the horse continued down the avenue, to Belden avenue, to River street, to Dann's stable. Here a hack was standing in his way, so he put on a little more extra steam and attempted to jump oyer the hack. He did not leap high enough, however, but landed astride the hind wheel of the hack and here he hung until released by some of the* stablemen. Strange to say, the horse was not injured, save a small cut on one of his legs. Town Meeting. The annual town meeting will be held in the Town House on Saturday, Dec. 26, at 2 p. m. The annual report will be submitted, a tax will be laid, and action will be taken on a petition to "consider the propriety of passing a town by-law to prohibit, under some reasonable penalty the digging of sand worms on the flats and snores of the waters of the town of Nor walk, and if deemed expedient, to pass such bylaw." To Heat with Steam. Mrs. E. P. Weed this morning made arrangements to have the Opera House heated by steam in place of the two stoves at present used. When this im pzovementis completed ManagerAdams hopes to keep the house warm enough to satisfy all of its patrons. >>• Down they go. _Boots and Shoes reduced 20 per cent. until January 1st, at Jaryis Kel logg's. . , r.;, 249fcf " TERSE TALES OF THE TOWN.
