Bill Jndson, in his great act of exercisiug the appointiug power, says the Detroit Journal, is in the most consf'icuous figure un the state political horizon thia week. Washtenaw raen have declared that it was a privilege to trade horses with the astute and diplomatic Bill, even thongh they got the worse of the tran6action. Applicants for jobs under Bill find ít a similar privilege to preseut their applications and urge them in person, even thougn they get turned down. Bill is now stata inspector of illuminating oils, at 1,500 a year, and has soinething like a score aud a half of deputyships to give out. He says that three of the present deputies have a cinch on a reappointment. These are Frank Fredrich, of Traverse City ; B. F. Brazee, of Ironwood, and A. W. Wilkinson, of Chelsea. Mr. Wilkinson is the depnty in the oil inspection district in which Mr. Judson resides, and is the only one in the list of deputies to be regarded as the personal selectiou of the Appointing Power, so Bill says. There was a little sentiment about so formal a matter as the giving of tüe boud required of the oil inspector as a guarantee to the state of a proper administraron of his offhe. There were niany who offered to go on Mr. Judson's bond, but the men selected by him for this service were H. S. Holmes and W. J. Knapp, of Uhelsea. Both these gentlemen were on Air.
