LENAHAN HAS A CHANCE
Wilkcs-Barre Lawyer May Get

Th fight for Ihe two places nn the
. Mipremo Court bench which will be

to have narrowed down to three of the
nine candidates.

.Judge Kephnrt, who will gel Ihe big

of the two places. The fight for the
other place Is said lo be between Justice
Simpson nnd Mr. I.enahan with the pos.
nihility thai Justice Edward J. Fox. of
Eastou, will loom up strong at the
finish.
Death caused two vncancles on Ihe
bench of the State's highest tribunal.
Governor Brumbaugh appointed Justices
Simpson nnd Fox tn nil t,hd vncancles
until Ihe November election.
The Vnre organization Ih the city Is
suppoitlng Justice Simpson for one nf

will depend on the size of the vote given
him In Philadelphia. i
To provide for minority representa
tion on the Supreme Court bench the
State Constitution provides that each
voter can vote for o.nly one candidate
when more than one vacancy Is to be
filled. If Justice Simpson nnd Judge
Kephnrt should both win, the Democrats
would be deprived of the representation
which Ihe Constitution sought lo pro
vide. Mr. I.enahan and Justice Fox are ex
pected to split the Democratic vote fnlrlv
even, although It Is conceded that Hfehry
Build, Philadelphia attorney, and A. V.
Dlvcly. a Democratic lawyer of Altoon.l,
