Meeting of Stockholders
Hon. Arthur Patten has succeeded
iii placing all the stock of the Thom
asville Title and Guarantee Company,
and a meeting of tho stockholders is
called for Thursday night, June 13th,
at City Hall, for the purpose of or
ganization. The ease with which the
stock was placed is a high testimonial
to the faith our people have in the
paying qualities of the company as an
investment. The stockholders num
ber the best business men of the city
and county. These Guarantee com
panies are great successes elsewhere in
the State, and there is no reason why
the Thomasville one should not pay
handsome dividends, besides affording
security to purchasers of real estate.

The republican organs are informed
that the democrat press is not worry
ing about the coming appointment of
a supreme court justice, although
there is apparently some cause for
worry. The two men who seem to lie
favorites with the President arc Judge
Woods and Attorney General Miller,
the first of whom, from all accounts,
is not capable of filling the position
properly, and the other of whom rests
his claims upon his services in shield
ing Col. Dudley. No; the democrat
ic press isn’t worrying. It doesn’t
expect much of the Harrison admin
istration, and it doesn’t think the ap
pointment of either Woods or Miller
would help the Republican party.
