The rules of the civil service, he said, did not require that pel-sons apjiomted to work pirectly under the commissioners should pass a written examination. This was, he said, now the rale. Mr. Campljell hod been pro- moted both times without examination.

They were in Mr. Campbell's handwriting but this fact had not attracted his attention at the time. The next day he dis.-overeil that the questions were written in Mr. Campbell's handwriting. He told his bruthcr-in-liiw the matter would have to be inyestigated as a serious breach of discipline. Campbell's last promotion, Mr. Lyman said. followed a ysar after he had been reprimand M for this breach of discipline. a tiff followed between Mr. Itoose- velt and Mr llatton in regard to some of the editorials that hau' apji'-ared recently in the Washington I'ost.
