Says He Will Appoint No Judge
Until He Gets the
MAY BE OKLAHOMA MAN
Roosevelt Says He Must Be
as Strong a Man as Is
(United Press Service.)
WASHINGTON, D. C., Oct. 31.-
Owing to the many inquiries that
have been made as to who would be
the successor of Judge Wickersham,
of Alaska, the president has given it
out that he will not name a man until
he has found one who is as strong
as Judge Wickersham, whom he held
in the highest esteem and confidence.
There is some talk of S. H. Reed,
of Oklahoma, being given the ap-
pointment, but whoever secures the
appointment will have to be satis-
factory to both the attorney-general
and President Roosevelt.
GREATEST OF COMPLIMENTS.
What greater compliment could any
man ask for? President Roosevelt
says he will not appoint a successor
to Judge Wickersham until he finds
a man as strong as the latter."
