Judge Keedy Re ported for Poffenberger The Baltimore Suntodny says Harrington is reported among politicians to bo strongly in clined to appoint ThomasA Poffen berger Democrat of Hagerstown as associatejudge of the Fourth Judicial Circuit in place of Judge Martin L Keedy Republican The ssid yesterday that he had no an nouncement to make regarding the matter but he will act within a few davs it is assumed because Judge Keedys term will expire soon after the election He was elected tor the 15year term in 1903 and qualified immediately afterward It is also reported that the Gover nor will reappoint Judge Robert R Henderson Republican of Cumber land the other associate judge of the Fourth Circuit His term expires at the same time as Judge Keedys they having been elected together The re appointment of Judge Henderson and the appointment of Mr Poffenberger in Judge Keedys place it the poli ticians dope is right will be for one vear In the sreneral State election of 1919 judges will be elected for tho full 15year term in both cases There has been little question for 6obie months past that Judge Hender son would be appointed by the Gover nor to serve the interim between the expiration of his term and the elec tion a judge for the full term Tne moctpowerful Democratic leaders in Allegany county are said to have joined Rith members of tho bar and others in urging Judge Henderson s retention The contrary has casein Washington with re spect to Judge Keedy Dr J Hubert Wade chairman of the Democrats State Central Committee and the State organization leader in Wash JttEton said to have takon a vigorous stand against tne retenuuu of Judge Keedy although the latter hasstrong support among Democrats tat the bar Also lie is said to have tafcen an equally vigorous stand in favor of Mr Poffenberger Accordingto rumors which have going around Judge Keedys sit uation before the Governor has not been helped any by the fact that his scii Charles C Keedy was amember of the House in 1916 Mr Keedy did not go along with the Governor and in the special session ne joined the other Republicans in tha House in the fight to force the repeal of the old Wilson Ballot law That fight tied the Governors hands for several days and caused him serious embarrassment Stories have come out of the Governors camp lately that he has recalled the and Mr Keedys part fn it with some
