U. S. MARSHAL.
The many friends of Capt. A. H. Keller, of Tuscumbia, will make application to President Cleveland, at the proper time, to have him appointed United States Marshal for the Northern and Middle Districts of Alabama. Capt. Keller is a gentleman of commanding appearance and ability. For many years he has been and is now the bold and fearless Editor of the North Alabamian, and whenever his sharp blade was raised the enemies of good government went down like ripe grain before the reaper. He has labored faithfully for his party---has stubbornly refused positions of honor, preferring to battle in the ranks until the vultures were entirely routed, and now that Victory has been achieved by our grand old party, Capt. Keller comes to the front---thro’ his friends---and will ask for the above position. President Cleveland will not find it an easy matter to ignore his claims.---Moulton Advertiser.
We are greatly indebted to our friends of the Advertiser for the above. Such notices from our Brethren of the Press are especially gratifying as they have better opportunities for judging of each others [sic] deserts [sic] than anyone else.
