We are pained to note the death of W. N. Dale, editor and proprietor of the West Alabamian, published at Carrollton, which occurred on the 24th ult.  Mr. Dale was a young man and was one of the brightest newspaper men in our state.

We are sending out this week by request, a supplement containing a write up on Congressman Charles W. Thompson, which appeared in the Christmas edition of the Montgomery Advertiser …….

After a year's suspension of the post office at Indianola, Miss, President Roosevelt has appointed a white man to take the place of the negro postmistress…….

Says an exchange, "The Policy of this paper during 1904 will be to say something good of all of whom it may speak and when we cannot say something good we prefer to be silent……..

Do not neglect your cereal crop this year……

As will be seen by referring to our announcement column the friends of JOHN FRANK MUSGROVE have put him forward as a candidate for Constable in Beat 14 subject to the action of the Democratic primary Mar 1.  There is no need to comment on the merits of the aspirant for this office, as he is too well known by everybody.  He is a man who never seeks public favor, but he is one who is capable of getting what he wants, and this is who he has been prevailed on to become a candidate.  If he is elected we feel safe in saying he will perform his duty well, and if he has no opposition we make the motion that his election be made unanimous.

CAPT. R. P. HOBSON
In our announcement column today will be found the announcement of Capt. Richmond Pearson Hobson as a candidate for representative from the Sixth District in the 59th Congress, subject to the action of the Democratic party……

U. S. MARSHAL COOPER SUED
Huntsville, February 1 - A. R. NINNINGER has filed in the United States court a damage suit for $20,0000 in which United States Marshal DAN COOPER is defendant.
 Nininger claims that sum for alleged false imprisonment, the deputy marshals having placed him under arrest when they found in possession of the stock of Butler, Cole & Co, bankrupts at new Hope,.  He claimed the goods as his own.

RETAINS COURT HOUSE - Columbiana, Ala

MUST HAVE NEW INDICTMENT
Jasper, Ala, Feb 1 - Henry Walker will not be tried for the murder of Mrs. J. C. Dickinson next Wednesday, the decision f the Supreme Court making it necessary to find a new indictment. The opinion of the Supreme Court has caused much comment here, as it not only affects the Walker case but all cases tried during the term. The act crating the fourteenth Judicial Circuit Court provides that the first term shall begin in January but the act was not approved until March 6, 1903, when the court was immediately organized. The Supreme Court holds that the term was without jurisdiction in that it did not commence in January as provided in the legislative act, which would have been impossible, the act not being passed by the legislature until March 6, during the term which the Supreme Court declares illegal.  Henry Walker was tried for murder and sentenced to death. Zonnie Parrentine and Will Dozier were convicted of murder and given life sentences, and George Minnettes was sentenced to death for murder.  It is now claimed that all the cases will be brought before the Supreme Court and reversed as the Walker Case.  A grand jury will be organized next Monday, Feb. 8, and new indictments returned.

At the time of going to press this Thursday morning Mr. VICKERY was thought to be resting a little better.  More hope is now entertained of his recovery.

Mr. RAYMOND HARRIS has a brand new buggy and harness and a pair of fine match mares.  They make a handsome appearance.  (We mean the turnout, not the owner)

Mr. RUFUS SHIREY and family have returned from Mineola Texas and will again make Winfield their home. Taking everything into consideration this is about as good country as Texas, and we are glad to welcome RUFUS and his attractive little family back in our midst.

Circuit Clerk PEARCE who is seeking the Democratic nomination for probate Judge was in town yesterday. He is a clever gentleman and his friends here say the man who beats him will be our next Judge of Probate.

The Frazier Hotel at Guin is a favorite place for all traveling men. If you should per chance stop over at Guin you are assured of as good meals, comfortable and clean beds and as nice treatment at this house as you will find anywhere.  One trial will cure all skeptics.

Dr. BUCKELEW of Sulligent has purchased the store house and hotel property of Mr. N. W. HULSEY at Guin and will open up the hotel in the near future.  Messrs. HULSEY & Son have moved their goods out into another house and will continue in the mercantile business.

There has been more complaint of colds for the past five or six weeks than has ever been known in this community's some bad cases of pneumonia are also reported.  People should take good care of themselves at this time of year.  A bad cold never leaves a person in as good shape as it finds them.

The Democrat wishes for them a long life of happiness and prosperity.

Attention is called to the advertisement of the E. E. Forbes Piano Co of Birmingham which will be found elsewhere in this issue. This is a relative music house, and if you should need anything in their line don't fail to communicate with them or see their traveling salesman, Mr. J. F. MANKIN before buying. The Methodists at this place have just installed one of their organs, and it is certainly a good one. Read The Democrat and keep posted on the inducements offered by this firm.

Miss NANNIE BELL ASTON and Mr. ALBERT MAY were married last Wednesday at the home of the bride's father, Mr. JOHN T. ASTON.  Miss ASTON is one of our most beautiful young ladies and her many friends who want best wishes for her future welfare and happiness.  Mr. MAY is a young man of good business ability and fully capable of making a good husband for the young lady whom he has been so fortunate as to fool into becoming his life companion. The Democrat extends to them its sincerest blessing sand trusts that their journey through life will be attended with an abundance of happiness and prosperity.
