REPUBLICAN COMMITTEE MET
They Farmed Out the Officers for North Alabama
BIRMINGHAM, Jan. 12.—It developed to-day that a meeting of the Republican District committee of the Seventh District was held in this city last afternoon and a number of endorsements for federal appointments made. The meeting it is said was well attended, though its proceedings have been kept as quiet as possible for some cause. All that was done is not known, but it is said that the following endorsements for appointments by McKinley were made.
William Vaughn, Chairman of the Republican State Executive Committee, for District Attorney for the Northern District of Alabama.
S. P. Dowler, of Marshall county, to be Marshal of the Northern District of Alabama.
Joe J. Nix, of DeKalb county, to be Collector of Internal Revenue in Birmingham.
Dr. Albert Hayes, of Cullman county, to be Consul to Montevideo, Uruguay, South America.
John Alexander, of Autauga county, father of C. D. Alexander, of Attalla, to be Collector at the port of Mobile.
Thomas Stevens, of Gadsden, to be postmaster at Gadsden.
Several other endorsements were given, but nothing could be learned of them this morning.
A. B. Jones resigned as member of the District Committee and Mr. C. D. Alexander, of Attalla was selected in his place.
