Having disposed of the suggestion of
Judge Sullivan for a place on the su

Second district took up with Mr. Gregory
the vacancy on the federal bench of
Nebraska. While he was not there to
favor any particular candidate, he de
sired to urge a speedy appointment of
a successor to the late Judge Munger
and that it should go to the North
Platte country. Judge Munger came from

Mr. Tumulty assured Mr. Lobeck that

'.My call on tho attorney general," said
Mr. Lobeck, "developed thia fact that the
mind of the chief law officer of the gov

of the Lamar succession and that the
west will be considered seriously with
other sections of the country in the selec

place on that tribunal. y
"In my Judgment Judge Sullivan woula
make an Ideal man for the place and if
any inquiries tiro made In his home state
the results cannot help but be favorable.
Incldenally, I told the attorney general
that Judge Sullivan was under 60 years
of age, which is my understanding. While
I do not know whether Nebraska stands
