Washington, D. C., Dec., 19.-Two
days of 'intimate conversation with
men who shape the nation's destinies
in Washington discloses that the anti
Harding forces are jubilant ever the
nomination of Pierce. Butler, of St.
Paul, as Associate Justice of the Su
prome Court of the United States.
They regard the nomination as the
supreme blunder of the Harding ad

of discontent. Those who quietly op
posed Daugherty when he was named
today made 'no ado about openly
charging that Harding is saddled with
an administration-wrecker in Daugh
erty, just as Taft was with Ballinger.
The "I told you sos" have found cer
tain pleasure in the warfare on the
Attorney-General which has ended in
his open arraignment, but this is as
nothing compared to their attitude in
relation to the Supreme Court.
The anti-Harding ien have looked
sometime for an avenue of open and
excusabel attack on the activities and

Butle's' nominatiQn caused. a furo
re i nboth Hduse and'Senate. At first
it aroused indignatdtlon'bit As the'anti-i
Harding men begun to ecchange views
irritation'c an ed'to.eh tion, yntil the
oppositioni"'to 1t1 e'omination cysthll
ized into wht h progressive bloc re
gards as' an opportunity.
Then,. on 'top' of this,' came the re
port, not iancontradicted, that the
much defeated Governor of the State
of New York' Nathan L. Miller,- also
is being seriously consider for the
Supreme Court. , When the rocket
was fired every anti-Harding man felt
like a poker blayer who has just
drawn his' fourth ace.
Shipstead Says iButler is Not Quali
lied fo' Bench
Openly the opposition to Butler is
being led by Senator-elect Shipstead,
of Minnesota, who 'frankly says his
constituerits promise to'produce ample
evidence -to show that Butler is not
qualified to sit on the Supreme Court
Appearing before Senators Nelson,
Cummins-- and 'Walsh of Montana,
Shipstead presented a letter in which
it was stated that "any attempt at
this time to placeon the Supreme
Court Bench a man biased in favor of
corporate interests will arouse bitter
resentment and critidism."
It is o~lenly' charged that Butler
has been a corporation lawyer so
many years and has so frequently
fought to obtain special privileges for
large corporations that he would be
unable "as a member of the Supreme
Court to act with an unbiased mind
that he would in his decisions neces
sarily and inevitably be influenced by
his past interests associations."
Shipstead contends that the appoint
ment of Judge Gary of the United
States Steel Corporation would nob
be more unfitting than the naming of
When asked for specific incidents of
corporate activity on the part of But
ler, Shipstead referred to a report
prepared by Delos F. Wilcox, a New
York accountant, based on an exam
ination of the Twin City Rapid Tran
sit Company. This company, Ship
stead said, with Butler acting as its
attorney, used every artifice and tech
nicality to prevent examination of its

Asked- as to the disclosutes in the
Wilcox report Shipstead ld it
showed "a yellow dog fund" Total
ing several hundred thousand dol
.lays from which itonoy was' paid to
?'various public ofiloiale acid men of
great political' influence during the
per od when the, corporation was
seeing special favors from the
Legislature or the City Council."
This is not the qum total of the
alleged unfitness of. Butler - for the
Supreme Court Bench. It -is just
an.' incident. Shipstead 'wants the'
senatorial sub-committee io summon
wittesses 'to fortify his uttaicknd -he
names three tiniversit ypyfesoys
among .tbbn, nemely S~tauhy $~yiins
of 'the Un iversity of Ai 1nesota, (uer
hard Dietrichson of the University of
Illinoi, .and Felix Frankfurter of
Harvard University, besides, a number
of other distingtllshed citizens.
"This is not a personal matter"
said -Shipatead. "It is.not a political
matter. .1 have nothing against Mr.
Butler personally, 'but he ought not
to be permitted to sit on the Suprume'
Court of the United States, and this
can be definitely denionstrated."
Privately some of the anti-Hard
ing Xnen admit of a belief that the
nomination of Butler is likely to be
confirme(l, but if it is, they say there
is :no doubt the result will be a
widening of the existing party divi
sion. LaFollette will lead the op
position to 'Butler in the executive
session of the Senate, and he will
be backed by Senator Norris. Al
ready Butler is spoken of in legisla
tive circles as "Boomerang Butler,"
and this is not to the liking of the
White House, by any means.
