Pursuant to call of Chairman

of the citizens of Tattnall County
was held this day at Reidsvilte for
the purpose of appointing dele
gates to the Gubernatorial Con
vention to be held in Atlanta on
the 2nd of-August.
The, meeting being called to or

Brewton was called to the chair,
and W. J. IMey Eaqr. reqnested
to net. as Secretary.
On mol ion of Isaiah Beasley a
committee ofjive wete : appointed
by the chairman to nominate del
egates to represent Tattnall in

W. J. Haley then informed the
meeting that he had some resolu

regard to the election of State
Senators, upon which he read the

Whereas, in the opipion of tills
meeting much of the good feeling
and harmony heretofore existing
between the counties composing
the second Senatorial Dist., in the
State Senate, is owing to our
faithful observance of the rule
known as the rotation rule. And
whereas we believe that a viola
tion of this rule, in the approach
ing election by either of the coun
ties of said district, contrary to
the wishes of ethers, would pro
duce serious discord between the
counties, which might result in
our defeat, as ff party in said
election, and cause' the District
to pass again into the hands and
under the dominion of the Radical
party, a state of things greatly to
be deplored, and which we be
lieve all good men should earnest
ly labor to prevent.
Resolve Ist. That we the vot
ers of Tattnall County are in fa

as the Rotation Rule heretofore
observed by the counties com

trict in nomi ating their candi
dates for Sen a lor.
Resolve 2nd.’ That any attempt
on the part of either of the coun
ties of said District to violate ro

of all the counties) as tending to
