ately. President undecided what
to do. Decide few days. Roosevelt
learns Hoyt candidate judgeship in
Alaska. Several Senators criticise
appointment subordinate judiciary
official investigate United States judge.
Within past week petitions wired
Roosevelt from Nome and Juneau that
Wickersham be transferred either place.
President not considering transfer."
This is the substance of Walter
E. Clarks telegram to the Seattle
"P.-I." and is probably authentic.
Boiled down it means that some
disappointed litigants are dissatisfied
& that Hoyt wants to be judge!!!
Well, if the decision is against me
I'll join the ranks of the disappointed
litigants, and give Mr. Hoyt a round
to show him how it feels!
