Said one of "Billy" Judson's most trasted lieutenants this morning: "The longer Pingree and 'Billy' Judson live, the closer you will find them together. It is because 'Billy' never gave the old man the wrong steer. Pingree found Mm right in what he said, and 'Billy' is getting more and more solid with the governor every day." The action of Governor Pingree in asking for the resignations of GenerĂ¡is White, Marsh and Case from the military board seems to bear this out. A gentleman of this city who is pretty well posted on the politica! situation said to the Argus : ' ' Have yon seen what Govenror Pingree has done ? He has asked the military board to resign. That's "Billy" Judson's work. The military board had it in for 'Billy, ' and now 'Billy' has had the board fired. You can't get ahead of 'Billy. ' He never takes a receipt or leaves an ear-mark. He'll get even with them all before he gets through. Our 'Billy' is enough for them all,and dont you forget it. " It would not be the most surprising thing if the successor to the late O. M. Barnes on the prison board is appointed directly after the legislature adjourns. It is said that the man has already been selected and that he is picked out to give Judson the wardenship.
