Pensions For Pioneers
Persons who were members of the home guard, reserves or Alabama militia during the War Between the States, may receive pensions from the State under the Confederate pension law, according to a ruling of Wm. L. Martin, attorney general, to M. C. Allgood, state auditor. However, a person who was a member of the reserves or militia of another state cannot benefit by the statute.

Plan An Electric Road
Richard Tillis of Montgomery and others have been spending some time in Panama City, looking into the advisability of building a car line from Lynn Haven to Panama City, touching St. Andrews and perhaps other points on the bay. Local people are interested and willing to cooperate with the proposition.
Rev. Brooks Lawrence has resigned as secretary of the Anti-saloon League of Alabama. His resignation becomes effective July 1st.
