for a writ of habeas corpus and denied in its opinion and order of January 23, 1969.
Presently before the Court for consideration is relator's latest motion, filed December 24, 1969, for the appointment of counsel to prosecute his state court appeal. He acknowledges in his petition that Judge Jamieson of the Quarter Sessions Court appointed counsel for him on November 22, 1968. He alleges, however, that counsel wishes to withdraw and therefore new counsel should be substituted.
This Court has no jurisdiction over the appointment or substitution of counsel to prosecute relator's state court appeal. That is a matter which is entirely within the control of the state courts, and more particularly Judge Jamieson who appointed relator's present counsel. Accordingly, the motion will be denied.
