The papers have now fairly gotten Capt. J. F. Johnson’s name before the people as a possible gubernatorial candidate. As yet, of course, the Captain has said nothing.—Montgomery Advertiser.
Hon. H. A. Herbert has obtained a fair position in the Treasury Department at Washington for Oliver Marks, a good colored Democrat of this county. It will be entirely convinced that the Democrats are their best friends. The fact has existed for years.—Montgomery Advertiser.
