The Alabama Republican State Convention of the anti-administration, faction of the party Was held in Birmingham to day with practically every county in the State represented. The surprise of the convention was the affiliation of National Committeeman Charles H. Scott, of Montgomery, with this faction of the party. Mr. Scott was elected Permanent Chairman of the convention, and made a ringing speech calL ing for "an Independent Republican party in Alabama untrammeled by the influences of Federal officeholders." The sessions appeared to be harmonious, the only ripple being created when there was an attempt on the part of the negro delegates to make H. V. Cashin, of Decatur, one of the best Known negroeg in the State, Temporary Chairman. The colored delegates, however, were given places on. all Of the committees. The convention indorsed the Congressional District delegates which have been chosen to the National Convention where the Congressional Conventions recognized the legality of the Davidson wing of the party. Candidates for all State offices to be filled at the November election were named. Four delegates-at-large to the National Convention at Chicago were chosen, as follows: Judge Asa E. Stratton, of Clanton; Charles D. Alexander, of At-talla; W. R. Pettiford (colored), of Birmingham; Maj. Charles Allison, of Birmingham. The report of the Resolutions Committee indorses the National Republican administration, is entirely non-committal as to candidates for the Presidential nomination, and takes a pronounced stand against the anti-corporation activities of the Democratic party in Alabama. The administration wing of the party, headed by J. 0. Thompson, of Birmingham, will hold its convention in Birmingham next 'Wednesday.' Jackson, Miss., April 29. The Republican State Convention, held here to-day, developed rather tumultuously, a lively fisticuff preceding the opening of the session when a number of those who favored the selection of Senator Foraker for the Presidential nomination attempted to force their way into the convention, which was controlled by the supporters of President Roosevelt and the policies of the present National administration. Quiet was restored, however, when a special officer, stationed at the door of the convention hall, drew his pistol and threatened to shoot any one who attempted further to force an entrance. The outcome was the holding of two conventions, the "regulars" indorsing the National administration and selecting delegates known to be favorable to the policies of President Roosevelt. The "bolters" adopted resolutions In denouncement of the President's National administration, and instructed their delegates to vote for Senator Foraker for the Presidential nomination. DR. REDMOND A BENEDICT. The news of the marriage of Dr. R. J j. Redmond, who finished with the class of 1908 Meharry .Medical College, at Indianola, Miss., was quite a surprise to his Nashville friends, though it was known that he was engaged.

Thomas, and Dr. Redmond were married on Sunday evening, April 19. at half-past 9 o'clock, at the A. M. E. Church in Indianola, Miss. At present Mr, and Mrs. Redmond are residing in Indianola.
