Charles Webb Reappointed as U.S. Marshal for Western North Carolina, 1918

“Marshal Webb Reappointed,” from the Jan. 24, 1918 issue of the French Broad Hustler, Hendersonville, N.C.

Washington, Jan. 10—The nomination of Charles A. Webb of Asheville by President Wilson to serve four years more as United States Marshal for the western district of  North Carolina which was confirmed by the senate Tuesday, was not opposed from any quarter, according to a statement made today by Senator Lee S. Overman. Recent reports to the effect that the confirmation would be opposed were without foundation, said the senator. Neither was the nomination of William T. Dortch to be marshal in the eastern district opposed.
