Citizen's Progressive League. An enthusiastic meeting of the Citizen's Progressive League was held at the Court House last Monday night. The purpose of the meeting was to discuss and consider industrial matters pend ing before this city. The offer of Mr. Kavanaugh, the New York manufacturer, was discussed some time and it was the consensus of opinion that if Mr. Kavanaugh will visit this city and show the people what he has to offer that no trouble will be experienced in interest ing Columbus capitalists in his enterprise. He has one of the largest plants of its kind in the country, it is on a paying and profitable basis and he is anx ious to bring it South on account of the labor conditions in this section and the advantages offer ed in coal and raw material. Mr. Kavanaugh will be invited to visit this city and the people of Columbus will have an opportu nity of learning everything of value in connection with this en terprise. The matter of the location of a spoke factory here was also dis cussed and those who are at the head of the movement were in vited to come and were assured of every concession and favor which the people of this city can guarantee. Locations were dis cussed and a number of available sites were offered. This matter will be heard of again on the 10th of this month wrhen representa tives of this concern will visit Columbus and examine into the timber resources of this section. The outlook for Columbus from an industrial standpoint could not be better and the location of these enterprises here will mean that many more will follow.

There will be a din ner and other attractive features for the institute and it is hoped that a large attendance will greet it. The work of veneering the white house building at the Col lege with brick was begun last Monday morning and it will be pushed until the building is completed which will be done in ample time for the fall session.

Wright-Johnston. Mr. Clinton Wright, of Bir mingham, Ala, and Miss Jaunita Johnston, of this city, were mar ried in Birmingham, AJa., last Saturday. The marriage was quite a surprise to the friends of the young couple who went to Birmingham to be married. The bride is the daughter of Mrs. Toby W. Johnston, of this city, and is well known and has a large circle of friends. The groom was for many years em ployed by the Tombigbee Mills of this city and is now occupying a reponsible position in one of Birmingham's chitf industries. Many friends extend their con gratulations to the happy young couple who will reside in Bir mingham. The Board of Supervisors should by all means provide a cement walk in front of the court house. The walk on the west side of this property is a great improvement and the im provement should be extended to the front of the building.

A marriage of interest to many in this city will occur in the near future at Holly Springs.

Payne devoted a few minutes of the time to present ing his cause for treasurer, and in justice to the other candidates Dr. Jamieson stated if they de sired to speak they would be given the opportunity.
