READY TO ACT
3ees No Reason for Haste in
Naming New Senator, but
Swanson Will Get Honor.
Governor Mann said yesterday that
le saw no reason for haste in the
-ppolntment of a successor to l'nlted
States Senator John \V. Daniel, and
indlcated that action would not be
aken for some days. The Governor
tttended tho funeral of Senator Daniel
it Lynchburg on Frlday. and dld not
reach Kichmond untll about 2 A. M.
/esterday. He was back at his desk
Dromptly yesterday morning, faeing- a
arge accumulation of mail. The day
was spent ln the transaction of rou
tino matters, clearlng the desk for
the holiday of to-morrow when nll
Df the State ofllces wlll be closed.
Tho Governor was unwllling to dls
:uss his probable actlon with regard
to tho appolntment of a successor to
s'enator Daniel, beyond saying that
since Congress is not in session, It
31d not appear that thero was any
urgent reason for haste, and that
the matter might he t.horoughly can
vassed before actlon is taken. Out
of respect to Senator Dnnlol, lie inti
mated that the appolntment should not
bo made whlle the State is yet in
mournlng. In other departments of
the Stato government no doubt is ex
pressed, but that tho appointment wlll
sventually go to Former Governor
Claude A. Swanson, and the fact that
the matter has been practically de?
termlned, in glven by some as an?
other reason why there need be no
unseemly haste ln making the formal
