GRAHAM 15 TAX COMMISSIONER. o Judge Hnssuiu Should ISe District Attorney --Other Items. Ex-Comptroller Robert P. Graham, of Wicomico county, was on Tuesday elected State Tax Commissioner, to succeed tbe Hon. Thomas J. Keating, who resigned on account of loor h e a l t h . Tbe election was by tbe Board of Public Works, which is composed of Governor Lowndes, Comptroller Goldsborough aud Treasurer Sbryock. It was t h o u g h t by some that Judge Russum would succeed Mr. Keating in t h i s position, and be did receive tbe Governor's vote. Messrs. James Waddell, of ambridge, and Henry N. Bankard, of Baltimore, were l i k e w i s e compti- n e n t o d by tho Comptroller ;iud Treasurer, respectively, the election not occurring u n t i l the third ballot. Tbe election of Mr. Graham was a surprise to almost everybody, and, doubtless, as great a one to t h a t entleman himself as to any one. Se was tbe most prominently mentioned candidate for tho District Att o r n e y s b i p , and Senator Dryden was t h o u g h t to have the best chances for the Tax Commissioner's office. Mr. Keating's resignation, however, was inespected and, doubtless, precipitated matters among the Republicans, uis term not expiring u n t i l May. Judge Russuiu's chances to succeed District Attorney Marbury, f he desires the position, now ought to be good. * * * Quito a contest for the Preston, postmastersbip, between Mr. Walter Todd and Mr. Orlaud Kelley, has recently developed.
