VALDEZ, ALASKA
■KfIRD
Washington, D. C., Feb. <5.
No matter what the Democrats
may do with the bulk of nomina
tions sent to the Senate this ses
sion by President Taft,, they in
tend to prevent the confirmation
of any and all federal judges, and
this means that Clinton W. How
ard, recess appointee as United
States district judge for western ■
Washington, will not be confirm- i
ed, and will in consequence leave j
the bench on jJJarch i next. His I
successor, who will get a perm- j
anent appointment, will lie a Dem- !
ocrat. j
The charges preferred against ;
Howard are not serious, and Sen- j
ator Jones is of the opinion I hat j
if this were not I he end of an ad- J
minis! rat ion, Howard would lie,
confirmed, for the charges could j
be readily disprovon. However,!
I lie fact that charges are pending,
give lhe Democrats some pre
tense of ground for holding up the j
nomination, and they are seizing I
upon lhe opportunity to make va- i
cant at, least one federal judge- !
ship on March i. There will be
others, but none in the northwest.
Judge Howard's failure In be
confirmed by the Senate cannot tie
construed as any reflection upon
him, for the move of the Demo
crats is purely political, and he
suffers by reason of being ap
pointed just before a change in
administration is to take place.
PRODUCE MEN ARE
BEING INDICTED
Portland, Ore., Fel). (5.-The fed- j
eral' grand jury in session here I
have indicted ten commission
