Successor of George C. Granberry Not Yet Named.

The citizens of Raymond, county seat of the second district of Hinds county, are wondering why the postmaster general don't appoint a new postmaster to succeed the negro George C. Granberry, who tendered his resignation several months ago, to take effect July 1st.

It has been generally understood ever since the Granberry resignation was tendered that Mr. Earl V. Miller, a young white man of that place, was slated for the office, and he has been assured of the influential support that would ordinarily capture the plum, but thus far the appointment has not been announced, and a belief is now current at Raymond that the office will be tendered to Miss Ella Harper, a white lady who has been serving as deputy in the office for several years, but who had made arrangements to leave July 1st, the date on which the resignation of the present incumbent was supposed to take effect.
