Bijur and Proskeur Slated for Renomination

Download PDF for this date

The renomination of Justice Nathan Bijur to the State Supreme Court Bench by the Republicans is assured, according to political gossip.

It is believed, too, that the Republicans favoring a non-partisan judiciary will support Justice Joseph M. Proskeur, who is a democratic appointee of Governor Smith.

It is thought also likely that Tammany may support Justice Bijur. Friends of Justice Abraham G. Meyer of the City Court say that William Randolph Hearst will back him.
