No valid reason can be supposed why
any democrat cannot become an appli
cant for office at present, nor do we
know' of any law which prevents demo
crats from kicking—what would people
do if they couldn’t kick—against any
fellow who is to be appointed. Evident
ly our McCook friends understand this,
because some few of them—very few—
are kicking because Frank H. Spearman
will probably be the next receiver and
Ambrose S. Campbell the next register
of the McCook U. S. land office. The
public objection to Mr. Spearman is that
he was not born a democrat, Mr. Camp
bell is not a lawyer, and both are cold
hearted fellows. These objections are
so silly as to need but little mention.
McCook has had a land office twelve
years, and the business has been done
reasonably well, notwithstanding the
fact that no lawyer ever held the position
of either register or receiver. Some few
will accuse the present register of being
a. lawyer, but he can easily disprove this
accusion. Our McCook friends have the
right to roar, but they should have some
better basis for doing it than the objec
tions above sighted.
It is very evident that the gentlemen
above named will be appointed. Mr.
Spearman is’ well known in McCook,
Mr. Campbell, who is a stranger there,
we will guarantee to be a gentleman, a
democrat, and in every way qualified to
Fulfill the duties of, the office. McCook
will be fortunate in securing a citizen as
jnergetic as Mr. Campbell. — Hastings
