A BLACK LIST CASE
Decided Against the Plaintiff and in Favor of the Railroad Company—Other Court News. B. C. Petit vs. the Alabama Great Southern railroad. The judge yesterday afternoon gave the general charge for the defendant. This virtually decides the case In favor of the defndant. The Petit case is one of the “black list” cases which have attracted considerable attention. The cases grew out of a.n alleged pub lication of the names of the railroad em ployes who quit work during the labor troubles of 1894. The plaintiffs in these cases claim that they have not been able In many Instances to obtain work at their trade since their names were so circulat ed by the Alabama Great Southern Rail road company. It Is very probable that the Petit case will be appealed to the supreme court. Other cases disposed of were as fol lows: David J. Fox vs. People's Savings Bank and Trust company; dismissed. Blumenfeld & Fred vs. J. W. Norment; dismissed. William Jackson vs. J. W. Worthing .ton; judgment for $53. R. R. Compress company vs. Baltimore Waite company; dismissed. Dan A. Rogan vs. H. F. Wilson; judg ment for $4001. Criminal Court. John Morrow, burglary and grand lar ceny; guilty. Chancery Court.

Mr. Alfred Sexton, one of the oldest and most highly esteemed citizens of the state, died at his home in Eutaw.last Monday morning. He was out at church on Sunday morning, and notwithstand ing the burden of 80 years, seemed in good health and spirits. He was taken with Influenza on Monday and died sud denly but peacefully of paralysis of the heart. His remains were interred in the fam ily burial ground at Eutaw on Tuesday. Rev. Mr. Bancroft preached the funeral sermon. Mr. Sexton leaves three sons and two daughters: Mis. Thomas W. Humes of Monroe county. Tennessee; Mrs. Oswald of Eutaw, Dr. C. R. Sexton of Birming ham and Messrs. Alfred T. and George A. Sexton. The deceased lived in Tus kaloosa for seve.ral years, and moved to Eutaw In 1883. He married Miss Hen rietta Alrey of Greene county. He did many kind deeds In his life, which live after him. • Since Governor Oates has declared it still to be his Intention not to be a. can didate for renomination, the Birming ham News favors letting Capt. Joseph F. Johnston have the nomination by ac clamation, notwithstanding the fact that It does not agree with him on the finan cial question. We about half way favor the News’ position. It would doubtless be good politics by thus eliminating the party from a scramble for the nomina tion.—Mountain Eagle.
