Wilili Howard Taft to Head Coun.
try's hlighest ('ourt. Senate Ap.
provai After Nomination.
-Washington, June 30.-4iorner Pres
ident William Howard Taft was noin
inated late today by President Hard
ing to be chief justice of the United
States and 'his nomination was con
firmed by the senate in executive ses
The nomination was not confirmed
without opposition, hdwever, and a
roll call was demanded. The opposi
tion was understood to have 'been
voiced by Senator Borah, Idaho, John
son, California, and fLa Follette, Wis
consin, all Republicans, who were said
to have criticized Mr. Taft's record
and his nomination.
On the roll call, however, only four
votes were cast against confirmation.
These were 'by -Senators Borah, John
son and La Follette, and Senator Wat
son, Democrat, Georgia.
The final vote was 60 to 4. An agree
ment was reached not to make a pub
Ife roll call.
The senate's doors were closed for
discussion of the nomination after
suggestions that Mr. Taft be con
firmed in open executive session, be
cauwe he is a former president, had
been rejected by opponents. Senators
Borah and Johnson led the fight on
the floor In oprosition to Mr. Taft,
w-hile he was defended by about a
dozen senators, including Knox, Penn
sylvania; Kellogg of Minnesota and
Willis of Ohio, Republicans, and Un
derwood of Alabama, Democratic mi
nority leader; Smith of California.
Overman of .North Carolina, and
Groussard of Louisiana, Democrats.
Senators Borah and Johnson were
understood to have centered their
fight on Mr. Taft's legal training,
experience and qualifications. Ac
cording to reports filtering out from
the senate chamber Senator Johnson
was said to have declared that Mr.
Taft's appointnent was "purely -polit
ical." A similar charge, it was report
ed, was made by Senator Borah.
Senator Johnson, it was stated, as
sorted that Mr. Taft had not regarded
h'imself as a lawyer but as a politician
and had "a'bandoned" his profession
after leaving the White House. The
California senator, it was reported,
said he had tried to disregard per
sonal objections to the nominee and
was voicing his opposition solely be
cause Mr. Taft had lacked, for nearly
a -generation or more, any legal ex
perience which would fit him for the
highest Judicial post of the nation.
Reference was made, it was said,
by Senator Borwah to the "drafting"
from the supreme bench by the Re
publican party of Secretary Ifughes
to become the presidential candidate
of the Republican party. In this con
nection It was stated that Mr. -Borah
made the statement that, "having tak
en an able lawyer from the supreme
bench four years ago, and made a
politician of him, it. was now proposed
to take a politician-a man who has
devoted practically his mature life to
politics-and .put bill on the supreme
bench in the interest of party politics."
The defense of Mlr. Taft, it was said,
was led by Democrats. Senator Un
derwood said ,that IMr. Taft hadi madle
himself- "beloved by the South," add
ing that this sentiment 'yas dlue large
ly to illr. Taft's appointment when
president of a Southerner, the late
Chief Justice White, to the highest. ju
dicial position of the country. Similar
tatements, it was reportedl, were made
