Walter E. Clarke, Washington, D.C.
on yesterday, saying: "Lacy still
firm against division. Possibly no
vote on Judge, recess appointment."
I gather from this that my confirmation
may not be acted upon until the meeting
of the special or next regular Congress- Also
the telegraphic dispatches today say that
P. C. Sullivan is to be appointed U.S. Dist
Attorney for the State of Washington in May
when Fryes term expires. This means
that both Ankeny and Piles will endorse
him, - but what about Wilson & the P.I.
and Perkins & his papers! Wont they
have a Killkenny time of it - in Seattle
& Washington - with the Postoffice & Sullivan scraps.
