Where so many very good laws arc already dead letters it Is scarcely worth while to pile up more. Judge PI. "W. Blodgct has placed his resignation from tlie bench hi the hands of the president. The action was made necessary by the appointment as a member of the Bchring sea commission, but It Is none the less regrettable on that account. The judge was too modest when he said: "I thought it time, after .twenty-two years of service as a district judge, to retire and make way for younger blood." The physical Infirmities incident to age may be bearing upon him, but It can be truthfully said of him that intellectually his eye is not dim nor his natural force abattcd. The Paraguayan government is offering largo premiums to immigrants who will engage Sii agriculture, and is so generous in this respect that it is likely to attract a population from overcrowded portions of Europe.
