JUDOE MEIIHICK'a APPOINTMENT.
How It Im Ilcceilvecl by aiemliors of
Iho District Unr.
Tbo appointment of Judgo William M.
Merrick of Maryland to tho Supromo Ilonch
of the District was tho universal toptoof con
versation at tbo Court-Houso this morning.
Tbo general sontlmont was that a District
lawyer should havo received tbo appoint
ment. Othorwlso tbo selection was pro
nounced nn excellent ono. Tho somowhat
advanced ogo of tho new Judgo was urgol
against him, but his qualifications for tho
position aro questioned by no one A fow
crltictso tho appointment ou tho ground
that It wan mado In n spirit of vindication
of Judgo Merrick, becauso ho was legislated
off tho bench, ou account of his political
views, In 1803.
A Critic reporter obtained a variety of
opinions on tho now appolutniont to tho
District Judiciary from tho mombors of tho
bar this morning,
Mr. J. J. Johnson, one of thodofoatod can
didates, salda bottor oppolntmont could not
havo been made. Ho said that Judgo Mor
rlrk Is a vory ablo and learned Judgo. "Ho
Is learned in tbo classics as woll as the law,"
Colonel Enoch Totlon said simply: "I
bavo never heard tho ability of Judgo Mor
"I havo a vory high opinion of Judgo
Merrick," said Mr. William 11. Webb. "Ho
Is a thorough gentleman and an oxcollont
Judgo. I think a' young man should havo
been appointed, howover, and allowod to
grow up on tbo boncb."
Robert Christy, esq., says that ltll ac
quaintance with Judgo Merrick begin In
1873, when thoy woio associated togothor
as counsol for tho memorialists In tho In
vestigation of tho lato Board of Publlo
Works, and tbat Judgo Morrlck posscssos
learning, oxpcrlenco and unquestionable
courago of conviction, and will undoubtedly
mako a most acceptable Judgo.
Mr. Campbell Carringtou thought that a
younger man, and by all moans a District
lawyer, should bavo been selected for (ho
fdaco. Ho said that Mr. Merrick was lojls
atcd off tbo bench under peculiar circum
stances, and that ho Is au ablo Jurist.
Mr.U. O. Claughton, who was spokon of
asacandldato for tho judgeship, remarked
tbat when ho heard of Mr. Merrick as a can
didate ho said that ho thought bo should
rccelvo tho appotutmont, If ho only held the
plaeo ono day. Ontsldo of a District ap-
E ointment, Mr. Merrick was his cholco. "A
otter appointment," ho said, "could not
have been mado."
Mr. Leigh Robinson, who represented tho
young members of thn bar, very decidedly
refused to express his views on tho appoint
ment. Judge Merrick was at tbo Courthouso
this afternoon and spent a few minutes in
tho clerk's olllco.
