From the Introduction on the roll of microfilm from the Alabama Department of Archives and History:
After his departure from The Hamilton News-Press, J. S. CLEMENTS was able to start another weekly paper, The Hamilton Appeal.  Its first appearance was on January 17, 1896.
 
Declaring its politics as "strictly democratic," the Appeal promised "at all times to battle for the right as it sees it."  While recognizing that "it takes money to run a newspaper, and the editor who hopes to succeed on soft words of promise and encouragement is doomed to disappointment."  Whatever the reason, CLEMENTS was ultimately disappointed in his venture.  In mid-1897 (sic - it was actually mid-1896), he sold it to H. T. MORGAN'S Guin Gazette, which appeared thereafter as The Gazette-Appeal.
