The following is the text of the resolu tion passed by the democratic executive committee of Perry county at Its ses sion on the 7th: ‘•Whereas, We view with much regret the political state of affairs now exist ing throughout the state of Alabama, wherein the white people are divided) and “Whereas, We believe that such divis ion on the part of our white citizens is fraught with much danger to the wel fare and prosperity of the state and Its institutions; therefore be it "Resolved, That the Perry county dem ocratic executive committee tenders to those citizens of our county who have for various reasons failed or refused to vote for the nominees of our party in the past few years, and who believe in demo cratic principles and who agree to sup port the nominees of the democratic party, an invitation to vote for all dem ocratic candidates at the primaries or mass meetings, whichever shall be so or dered by this committee, in future, at the place and time such primaries or mass meetings shall be held; be it further "Resolved, That the only restrictions placed upon such voters shall be that they will support the democratic nomina tions resulting from the votes cast by them at such primaries or mass meet ings, and all nominees of the democratic party.” These resolutions are similar to those passed by the executive committee be fore the last election, and give general satisfaction to the voters here. BLOOSBURG. November the Banner Month—Coal Being Shipped to New Orleans. Blossburg, Dec. 9.—(Special.)—Last month proved the banner one In the his tory of this place In shipments of coal and coke. Two thousand cars were for warded and could the Southern railway have given better service another hun dred would have been added. Many new houses were built and numerous others are now in process of construction, and every one has some one wanting to move in. Every house in the community is occupied and many others in demand. Effective the 1st instant Mr. James W. Alexander, who the past four years operated the No. 2 drift mine, was ap pointed mine boss of No. 1 mine, vice Mr. T. F. Winters, transferred to No. 4 mine. Mr. Alexander is a coal-getter and we bespeak the same success for him in his larger field that he achieved In the smaller. The Sloss Iron and Steel company has appointed Mr. Womack to look after its interest here and we trust his intrinsic worth will attach him to the company and operators. Major Tutwiler's new mines are now putting out 300 tons daily, which is sold in the New Orleans market. Mr. A. S. Leath, formerly with the Corona company, has been added to the store force, and Mr. John Tyler, former ly assistant cashier of the Iladford bank of Virginia, to the office. We extend to each a cordial welcome and plenty of hard work. Mrs. Tutwiler is much missed by every one since her removal to Birmingham, and we were quite selfish enough to re gret to see her go. Mr. Charles Kesmode], who. with his bright little family, attended the exposi tion with the Birmingham school party, reports a glorious time. Mr. and Mrs. N. B.

A Good Bain Falla—“Johnston and Har mony Smiles.” Fort Davis, Dec. 10.—(Special.)—Our little town was visited Sunday night and yesterday by a slow rain, which was very acceptable to the people in this vicinity, as all the wells and water ways have been dry for some time, and hauling water for xxian and beast has been the order of the day. The artesian well here, owned by Messrs. Roberts & Son, has certainly been a boon for the thirsty during the long dry spell. The ginnery at this place has been crowded for the past few weeks, as every one, it seems, has been anxious to get through ginning before the holidays. The cold snap last week caused many a line porker to tlnd his way Into the smoke house around our little town. The Georgia and Alabama railroad will in a few days commence the -erection of section houses at this place. Mr. .1. .1. Kirkland has accepted a posi tion with Messrs. Roberts & Son, and will move his family out here in a short • line. Our little band, politically speaking, out here all wear a broad "Johnston and harmony” smile, and are confident of vic tory.
