Roosevelt Will Appoint Him Despite-
Washington, Oct. 25. While no of
ficial statement is obtainable, unofficial
advices confirm the report that the
Presldent will appoint Attorney Gen
eral William K. Moody, of Massachu
setts, to the vacancy ln the Supremo
Bench, made by the retirement of As
sociate Justice Henry R. Brown.
The announced Intention of the Pres
ident to appoint Mr. Moody came as a.
surprise, as It was generally under
stood that he eliminated the Attorney
General from consideration ln that
connection because of the fact malnly
that Massachusetts already had a rep
resentative on the bench ln the person
of Associate Justice Holmes.
Mr. Moody's nomination will be sent
to the senate when congress convenes,
but the general expectation Is that he
will not take his seat on the bench un
til about January 1.
