President Appoints John P. Neilds Dis
trict Attorney For Delaware.
Washington, Oct. 6. President
Roosevelt appointed Jol Percy Nields
I'nlted States district attorney for Del
aware to succeed William Michael
Byrne, whoso renomination for the
plaee has twice failed of confirmation
by thp United States senate and who
finally relieved the president of further
embarrassment by resigning the office.
Mr. liyrne was an Addleks man,
while Mr. Nields Is an out-and-out
Regular Republican, bo that this ap
pointment is hailed as a distinct blow
for Addiekslsm.
A statement issued at the White
House announcing the appointment
'The two United States senators dis
agreed as to whom they would recom
mend for the vacancy. The president
went over the endorsements of all the
candidates who have been recommend
ed for the place. In such a case he
feels that the opinion of the judiciary
and the bar should have peculiar
weight. He finds that the federal and
state judges and an overwhelming ma
jority of the members of the bar, with
out regard to party or faction, favor
the appointment of Mr. Nields, and
the president Is entirely satisfied as
to his personal and professional flt-

to America. Father Spigardl said he
had never mentioned the matter in

common priest.
