It has been alleged, n In the rase of
the nomination of William 11. Hlchmond.
to be I'rosecutor of the Pleas of (lloticcster
County, that the nppolntmenl li belnjr held
up for purely political reasons. There Is
one nomination, howeor, that of rieorue
St. I.amonte to succeed himself as Com

nnother term or three years, whli-li tlio

few of them enro to discuss It; some, pre
