The confirmation of Mr. Campbell, to
be United States marshal of Minnesota
has been reoonsiaered, under charges,
and the case is again' opened to sena
torial investigation. The charges
against Campbell are that ho has for
years been a professional lobbyist in
the Minnesota legislature that he is an
offensive partisan, and that he has on
more than one ocoasion been disloyal to
the party while hiB connection with the
Mankato & St. Cloud railway, by which
many farmers and innooent stockholders
were wronged, is a blot on his reputation
for honesty and integrity.
Omaha is ooming rapidly to the front
in financial transactions and now ranks

it would double in size in a year and be

Since the senate demonstrated its de
termination to eombat the appointment
of federal officials, charges filed by dem
ocratic aspirants and their oongres'
sional assistants are being rapidly with
drawn. These charges wore placed
under a promises of strict secrecy and
this was an inducement to an indul
gence in reckless assertions whioh can
not be substantiated. A fear that the
senate may finally secure possession of
these papers has created a sort of a
pauio among congressmen and they are
desirous of removing the evidences of
their own slanderous work. The senate
is doing the fair ihing by tho country
in pursuing this case. All it asks is
that the officials charged with malfeas
ance be furnished the specifications and
then given a hearing. This proposition
is juBt enough, but does not suit the
purposes of the cowardly sneaks who
participated in the dirty work.
