We reproduce the following
from the Commercial Appeal con
cerning a former citizen of Harde
man : "Deputy United States Cir
cuit Clerk Dan .Elliott, upon me
recommendation of Judge Ham
mond, yesterday received his ap
pointment as United States commis
sioner, and is now duly qualified to
discharge the duties of this position.
The appointment of Mr. Elliott
makes three commissioners for Mem
phis and Shelby county, the other
two being John B. Clough and
Hunsden Cary. The duties of com
missioner will not interfere with Mr.
Elliott's position in the office of the
United States clerk. He is one of
the most competent officials of the
government in this state, and the
new honor is worthily bestowed."

ron, Mr. Emmett Herron, Mrs. Net
tie Watson, Misses Mabel Watson,
Edna Wall and Fannie Morris, all

there was Mr. Harry Herron. From
Bolivar, Mr. Hossie Ilerron, Misses
Crawford and Mitchell, besides a
number of young people.- A sump
tuous dinner was served at 2 o'clock
to which the guests did ample jus
tice. The rain in the afternoon
caused some slight disarrangements
of the outdoor sports and games,
but for the most part the day was
perfect. There were about fifty
persons present in all. The custom
of the annual reunion of this fami
ly has been long observed and they
are always heartily enjoyed by those
who attend. Jackson Whig.

Colored Baptists at Bolivar.
The West Tennessee Colored Bap
tist Association, which was in ses
sion here last week, adopted the fol
lowing sensible resolutions :
Whereas, There is a feeling of
unrest and expressed excitement
throughout our country to-day on
account of the prevalence of crime
and immorality, much of which is
to be committed by our own race,
Whereas, There is a growing dis
position to disregard the courts and
other established agencies for the
prevention of crime and the pun
ishment of the guilty, and
Whereas, Such disregard of law
and order, often resulting in the
persecution and lawless killing of
the innocent, which is a blot on our
civilization and can but work the
demoralizationQof Jsociety, there-
tore, we, the West lennessee Asso
ciation, mindful of safety and pro
tection of our race and the pea;e
and prosperity of our common coun
try, do adopt the following resolu
1st. That we do hereby condemn
crime of all kinds, whether com
mitted by persons iu high or in low
2nd. 1 hat we pledge our financial
and moral support to our municipal
and state governments in their ef
forts to ferret our crime, to punish
the criminals and to piotect the in
nocent in the enjoyment of their
inherent rights and privileges.
3rd. I hat we urge our pastors,
teachers and each individual citizen
to cultivate a spirit of amity and
friendship between the races in the
communities in which they live.
4th. That we condemn idleness,
the chief breeder of crime, and urge
the establishment of industries
among us to give employment to our
young men and women.
5th. That we invite-and respect
fully urge the co-operation of our
Christian white brethren of all de
nominations in our effort to restore,
maintain and strengthen friendly
relations between the races in this
country, and especially in the South,
which by nature is so well fitted to
be the home of our people.
The Association closed with an
Educational Mass-meeting at the
courthouse Sunday afternoon which
was attended by hundreds, inclu
ding many white people. The ad
vice given to the colored people by
the speakers was wholesome and
was publicly endorsed by the Mayor
of our city, the chairman of our
county court and our representative
in the legislature.
