Wulle Avowed -Oct. Even before Justice Miller is buried there much speculation as to who will be nominated to fill tho now racant and heavily draped chair bo but lately occupied on the Supreme bonca. First among the names mentioned in connection with this honorable and responsible position is that of Attorney General to him the rjajority of politioal gossips have awarded the place. Ho but nar- rowly escaped appointment when the prize was given to Judge Brower, and udis time it is believed bo will certainly havo conferred upon him tho authority to wear a flowing silk gown. Judfre Grcshaiti's friends havo not boon slow to push the claims of their idol, and many politicians who are not dis- posed to favor Groshaoa think it would be good policy to appoint him, for suoh an act would shelve a very promising obstruction to Harrison's renominatloQ in 1S92. It is believed, however, that Greshaui's chance for the vacancy now under consideration is too small to at- tract any degree of attention. Wednesday afternoon another name was projected into the field, and W its proprietor will only allow it to remain there Mr. Miller's show for beoominf Justice Miller will be lessened several per cent The latest arrival is Secre- tary Noblo, and his friends are in earn- est whnn they suy he is a candidate. Personally Geaoral Noble as well liked by tbe President as is Mr. Miller, and it is believed that the Missouri and kindred influence which will gather to tho support of Noble will more than outweigh the advantages of personal as- sociation which aro possessed by the Attorney General. No appointment will be made until Congress reassembles in December, for no man would care to sit on tbo Supreme bench before Sena- torial confirmation mado his and election sure. ESCAPED LYNCHING.
