VOLUME 20. BIRMINGHAM, ALA., SUNDAY, JULY 1. 18»4.—TWELVE PAG
eems to Have Reached Mont
gomery at Last
DESPITE THE HOT WEATHER
The Campaign Discussed—Sol
dier Boys Kick Over an Act
| of'the Council.
| Montgomery, June 30.—[Special Corre
r spoudence. j—The weather has been so op
' pressively warm lor a week that a sort ot
lethargy has rested on the city.
| Boeitty lolks are staying at home with
their novels aud palmetto Ians, and the
business men are eating watermelons and
trying to convince each other that it will
rain tomorrow.
The capitol has practically gone out ol
blast, the heads ol almost all of the depart
ments being out ol town and the supreme
court being in a state ol adjournment.
Many Montgomerinns have left the city for
summer resorts and cooler places, and
those who must remain at home ure envy
ing them.
* • •
From this standpoint it appears that the
democratic state campaign is afH.cled to
some extent with the prevailing lethargy.
There Beems to be rather a lack ol enthusi
asm so far. The officers ol the executive
committee appear to keep diligently at
work. They are not sparing any effort to
improve every opporlunity that is pre
sented to win a vote Irom the opposition or
Ksuwv a iranilnrinn nhuais kanlr i n i rv f lia
fold. But despite ibeir efforts there is a
certain amount of snap and enthusiasm
lacking. Some think this is due to the
fact that the press of the stale does not
more fully publish the reports of the
speeches that are being made in the cam
paign. It 1b facetiously asserted that mauy
of the state papers had exhausted them
selves before the nomination. It is worthy
of note at aDy rate that not a single speech
nor an approximate abstract of one tbat
has been made by any of tbe democratic
orators since the campaign opened bus beeu
printed by any slate paper.
• * •
The Montgomery military are very much
exasperated at tbe action of the city coun
cil in allowing a negro ball to be held in
their armory. In the third floor of the
l building is a large bull, perhaps the most
spacious in tbe state, which was intended
and which has always been used for an
armory and drill hall for the four local
, companies of the state troops. It is also
5 used by the companies for their social
f functions, their balls and other entertain
L ments which their lady friends attend. At
5 . the last meeting of tbe city council the
' negroes, in anticipation of the^iig lodge
meeting here laet Thursday, petitioned
that they be allowed to have a hall on
Thursday eveniug ill the armory. Their
fietiliou was allowed and the ball came off
11 regular order.
Now the boys are red hot. They look
upon the armory much as a social club
room and they are scoring the council
rouudly. Some of them vow they will
never darken that armory door again with
their presence, no matter what the emer
gency. They say the bail has been conse
crated to the" uegroee and they propose to
let them have it. It is presumed that tbe
council, in the absence of any protest from
the military men, concluded they would
not take offense, or else the city fathers
did not consider carefully tbe petition
which they allowed.
• * • •
It is stated there are mure Ilian 200
bouses of the value of more tbau flSOO
each now in courBe of construction in
f Montgomery. Tbe number is probably
I overstated, but tbare is unmistakably a
very large number being built. A Bir
minohnni man tnlH snmn Mnnlcrnim-rv
boomers yesterday they were making the
same mistake Birmingham did three or
four years ego—they were locking the sur
plus money of the town up in brick aud
mortar aud were providing more houses
than the number of tenants justified. They
told him he was a pessimist.

Misses Rebecca and Lizzie Barney hove
returned to Birmingham after having spent
a monlh with relatives here. The Mont
gomery people are Iryiug to persuade Mr.
William Beruey to remove to this city and
engecein business.
Mr. Reavia J. Terry spent part of the
week here.
All of the supreme court judges except

CAMP ODOM.
A JOIXY CROWD OF Ol.D AND YOUNG KNJOY
AN OUTING. ,
Last Wednesday afternoon onr reporter
m< t on the Georgia Pacific train and was
introduced to a very merry parly of boys
'j and girls who were just returning from a
two weeks’ camping out in the woods near
Parish, on (be Georgia Pacific railroad in
Walker county. The party was under the
charge of Mr. J. A. VanHoose and had
been camped on Lost creek for two weeks.
: He was assisted most ably by the chape
rones, Mrs. Spooner and Mrs. New Trunk
end Messrs. Dade Spooner, Hezekiah Lose
C'oat and Accommodation Tonics. The
names of course Beem to be camp names
■ nd are not known to the general pnblfc.
B Nur is Mr. Billy Blue Shirt, and yet the re
■ “ir found him to be a most charming
^B bopulur official of the Georgia Pacific.
WB Tth many a giggle and laugh were also
Hi foduced Misses Dignified Top Knot,
HH aceful PlHCid, Green Apple Slyboots,
jpid Vusaline Greasemuch, Thelma
Hj arnpbor Nevor-Pick-Up-Her-Clothes,
H Hnm'py Dumpy Chew Wax and Pet Diver,
H the latter evidently the pet of the camp,
■ with her bright, laughing eyes, curly ha\r
■ and rosy cheeks. Our reporter also shjik
■ hands with Masters Biml-BangLSWot
■ much, John Perseverance FishlnRR Tom
■ mie Dropclothes Boftsleeper and.Gee Whiz
Bustabout. All of tbe latter names seemed
especially appropriate. They ail report
much fun at Camp Odom, fishing, hunt
ing, battling, tennis, games, music, etc.
Much time was devoted to learmug how to
swim, and as a consequence most gratify
ing progress was made by both boys and
girls. The Georgia Pacific was very kind
to them, and they all sang its praises with
many thanks for its courtesies.
Great tales were told about tbe beauty of
thu scenery, tbe old mill uod dam, the
rocky, pine clad cliffs and mountain
gorges, the glorious swimming, rifle and
pistol practice, snake killings, berry
hunts, fishing, clothes washing in tbe old
pat down by the creek, the merry jokes
and pranks of both old nud young. Our
reporter sighed as he wiped the perspira
tion from bis tired head and wished that
he was a boy again and bad taken in Camp
Odom and the pine woodB for that two
weeks with that merry parly of girls and
boys , sleeping on the pine straw with a
blanket over him, and it struck him as
singular that more parents did not thus
personally show their children the beau
ties and attractions of nature in her wood
land retreats, while still combining useful
and merry tilings together.
Mr. V n'ioos3 stated that all had be
haved beautifully, and the whole party
almost cried when ramp Mas struck and
tbe march to the train began.
CLOSING KXKRUIEES
OP THE SUMMER REKBiON OK MISS ADELE
SHAW’S SCHOOL,.
An interesting evening was spent Friday
on the South Highlands at the close of the
Bummer session of Miss Adele Shaw’s
school.
Many novel features were iutioduced,
and where all did so well it would be unfair
to make comparisons, though the cantata,
“The Dairy Maids’ Supper,’’ was charm
ingly rendered, irom the farmer himself to
his graceful wife, jolly cow boya and
dainty maids, who captivated tlie audience.
Recitations were interspersed, and
through it all tbe same careful training
was apparent.
The annual report showed a high stand
ard of scholarship.
Prixes were awarded the following,
Blanche Edwards, May Purdon, Jdary
Schoel, Wallace Edwards, Hassle Frce
mon, Sadie Freeraon, ituby Love, Alice
Edwards, Harry Dodd, Willie llammack,

CAPTAIN KOLB
Indicta an Open Letter to Colonel
Oates—Wants the Colonel to
Write a Letter, Too.
The JefTarsoniana haveall sorts of ways of
trying to make the people believe that the
wicked democrats are fixing up to count
them out. A favorite scheme is to write
opeu letters to the democratic committees
and candidates asking them to join in re
quests to county officers to he honest. The
other day Mr. Skaggs sent one tu Colonel
Tompkins. Now Captain Kolb writeB one
to Colonel Oates. Here it is, aud a wormy
old chestnut it is becoming:
llON. W. (J. Oatks—Dear Sir: There Is
a prevalent apprehension and dread in thiB
state, which is shared by its best citizens,
that the election to be held the first Mouday
in August will not be conducted with fair
ness and impartiality.
As the representatives of the two parlies
it would cerluiuiy behoove both of us to do
ail ill our power 10 assure a clear und un
disputed title lo the ollio;rs, as well as to
allay all dangers from this alleged menace.
Of coi rse I recognize the fact that neither
of us have any authority over the officers,
nor any right to assume that either of us
can control their actions; but each of us
can inako a request aud insist upon its
compliance by our respective friends, and
I feel satisfied that it will be efficaciuus in
accomplishing the result sought. Hhould
it fail we would have the consciousness of
au honest aud patriotic effort to fulfill the
desires of our respective friends in this par
ticular.
I therefore request that you give me on
open letter to the county officers and all
others who shull perform any duty in the
management of the election, requesting
them, in behalf of our respective tickets,
lo failblully do all to their power to assure
perfect fairness and impartiality toward
each parly in every acl of theirs, which
shall affect the management of the election
or the declaration of the result.
] am pleased lo note that your public dec
larations before your nomination for “an
honest election end fair count,’’ and that
you “would not have the office of gov
ernor, if not houeatly and fairly elected,’’
and feel confident that this request will
meet your hearty approbation and indorse
ment.
Permit me to assure you that my friends
in every eection of the state approve this
course on my part, and that they will take
pleasure in faithfully complying with auy
reasonable request i may make, intended
lo assure this result. Very truly yours,
It. K. Kolb.

THE MILITARY GONE.
Post Forney Only a Memory of j
the Past.
THE SOLDIERS PAID OFF
The Governor’s Compliments
to the Boys—Men to Sleep
in Their Armories.
At 9 o’clock yesterday jporning every
teol at Post Forney was lakeu down. Bad
in a short time therealter the soldiers were
being borne to Ibe city on a special linsley
dum my.
Army regulations were observed, every
stake had been removed and at a signal
from the bugle every lent tell at the same
time.
The soldiers arrived in the city between
11 and 12 o’clock, the locai companies go
ing to their^armories, where the command
ing officers dismissed them. The Wood
lawn and East Lake compauies went on to
their respective homes about noon, aud the
Bessemer Hides left on the Bessemer and
Birmingham dummy at 2 o’clock. The
Woodstock Guards left for Anoiston on
the Georgia Pacific at 2:65. The Warrior
Guards remained in the city until 1:20
o’clock this morning, when they left on
the Alabama Great Southern tor Tuska
loosa.
Before leaving Post Forney yesterday
morning, the following orders were pub
liulwwl .
H EAI'QU A RTEFS 1
Alabama State Troops, )■
Post Forney, June 30, 1894. J
General Orders No. 11.
The governor extends the thanks of the
state to the offloers and men of the First,
Second and Third regiments for the service
recently rendered in upholding the laws
and dignity of the state. Their exemplary
conduct and discipline have increased the
regard and affection of the people ior that
self-sacrificing body of citizen soldiery,
upon w hom in the last resort the slate
must always rely to uphold and defend its
honor and securo to the people the rich
blessings of liberty regulated by law.
A powerful public opinion will soon right
the wrong done some of these patriotic
men, who have rendered unselfish service
and devotion to law, by employers, who,
safe at home, have discharged them from
employment.
Officers will report immediately through
the proper channels to the adjutant-gen
eral's office every well authenticated case of
discharge by an employer ol any member
of the state troops because of his obedience
to orders, giving btiefly the circumstances
of the case and the name and business of
the employer. The press, the friends of
the state troops and all lovers of law and
order will be appealed to to make their in
fluence felt in lavor of those who give em
ployment to the men who have been sacri
ficed because they served their stato in time
of need. The governor does not believe
that a grateful people, when the facts are
called to their attention, will allow any
soldier to suffer for obedience to her laws.
By command of the governor.
James b. Erwin,
First Lieutenant Fourth United States Cav
alry, Acting Assistant Adjiitant-Oeneral.
There is yet some fear of trouble in the
district, so it is said, but Governor Jones
and Sheriff Morrow believed it unwise to
keep the military in camps any longer. Tf
any trouble does occur sufficiently grave to
justify the calling out of the military it can
ho done with but little delay and the ex
pense to the state will be much less than if
they were kept here.
However, as a precautionary measure five
men will be on duty at each armory stall
hours, for a few days at least, who,
mounted on their wheels, can notify every
member within an hour or such a matter.
The men thus on duty at the armories will
receive pay for their time.
Serious trouble, however, iB not antici
nntpH.
The soldiers were all paid off yesterday
for the time they have been in camp as
volunteers.
Governor Jones and Lieutenant Erwin
are very enthusiastic over the soldierly
conduct of the state troops, and especially
of those who have been stationed at Ensley
City the past eight days. Never before
has discipline been so strictly observed io
this state, and never have the boys entered
upon their duties as soldiers more will
ingly or enthusiastically than did they ut
Camp and Post Forney.
The Woodlawn Light Infantry beer the
honored distinction of not having a '.ingle
man to get into the guard bouse luring J
the past eight days, the time of their ser
vice as volunteers. Captain Parkes is a
model commander and he has an excellent
company.
The boys were all glad to return home,
but said they would willingly stay if the
governor deemed it necessary for the en
forcement of the law and the preservation
of peace
TO KEDITCE THE FORGE.
Washington, June SO.—Secretary Her
bert issued an order today suspending all
work in navy yards that is paid for .out of
appropriations for the Increases of the
navy. This is caused by tho failure of con
gress to pass a naval appropriation bill,
Altomey-Ueneral Olney agreeing with Sec
retary Herbert that the joiut resolution ex
tending current appropriations does not
cover the matter. Ships now building un
der contract, including the battle ships and
the armored cruiser Brooklyn, are not af
fected, nor will the repairs now progressing
in the government yards be terminated;
but the Maine, Texas, Cincinnati and Itai*
eigh must remain untouched until farther
congressional action is secured. The naval
bureaus have kepi, barely within their ap
propriations, net over (30,000 remaining to
tbeir credit today, but they may continue
the services of clerks and workmen for an
other month, using a portion of the (150,?
000 made available by the joint resolution.
It was ieared at first that all naval repair*
would be shut down, and that barely suffi
cient money remained to keep the yard*
closed and maintain an efficient force of
watchmen. In that emergency it would
have been necessary to call on the army to
guard the naval property. As it is, 400 or
600 workmen will inffar from the ordtt
which the secretary was compelled to Issue.

Clanton, June SO.—[Siafl Correspond

year-old daughter of a respectable farmer
named Fletcher Jones, who lives about
four miles cast of Clanton, wan playing
near her father’s home, when she was as
sailed by a hellion of the African tribe and
hurried away to a swamp near at band.
Her screams for help brought her father
to the scene Just in timstosave her from
he clutches of the demon in black. Not
being armed he failed to capture the vil
lain, who disappeared through the dark
ness of the undergrowth and for a time
saved himself from the miniahmeilt of an
enraged community.
A search was immediately instituted by a
large number of citizens and the band
grew in proporlion bb the hours went by.
After a diligent search of thirty-six hours
the negro was found this morning about
ten miles northwest of Clanton sleeping
beside tho public road. He was bound
hand and foot and carried to the scene of
Ills vandalism. He was recognized beyond
miBtake a; tbe negro who was wanted.
It was also learned before arriving at
Mr. Jones’place that be had made a sim
ilar assault, which proved unsuccessful,
just previous to the one in question. He
was the prisoner of a fearless mob, who
brought him through tbe streela of the
county seat en route to the sceoe of his
crime.
An hour later his soul wiBon w'ngs for
Inat barren waste set apart for demons who
would spoil tbe virtue ol tbe fair women
and children of our laod.

THE A. P. A. •
DENOUNCED BY DEMOCRATS OF ILLINOIS
IN THKIR PLATFORM.
In reference to the American Protective
association the platform of the Illinois
democratic state convention says:
“Hostility to secret political societies is
a tenet of the democratic faith, which ie
fundamental, and, standing by this doc
trine now, as in the days when the party
presented an unbroken front to the cohorts
ot knownothingism and finally crushed
that detestable organization, the democ
racy of Illinois denounces as cowardly, un
patriotic and dangerous to the peace and
happiness of this country the A. P. A.,
which seeks to proscribe men on account
Of their religion or birth.’’
THE FOURTH AT PICKENSV1LLE

ABLE SPEAKERS EXPECTED.

An enthusiastic democrat is clamoring
tor Hon. D. B. Culberson of Texas to come
to Carrollton that they may see the man,
who, like W. C. Oates, is doing much to
shape the legislation of the house ol repre
sentatives.
Mr. Willett and Mr. Rogers are good
speakers and will comn a id audit C)> in
every part of Pickens. 1 tie populi.cs are
addiessed as erring brethren and are urged
to return to Ibeir father’s house. The
populites are badgered about their advo

democrals have Captain Kolb in a corner
and it appears tbat they will keephim there.
There will he a hand to hand contest in
this district for congress and this county
will he the battle ground. Of courso it
will not be discussed until after the state

each aspirant must win bis spurs in the

MONEY ORDER FEES
Have Been Reduced—The New Scale
of Prices—The Postal Note
Died Yesterday.
It remained for a democratic administra
tion to give attention to the needs of the
public in the matter of convenience and se
curity of transmitting money through the
postofiice department. The matter of
cheap pontage and other improved methods
of rapid aud cheap trnnsit of mails have
been given attention from time to time,
and probably today no nation on oarth on
jcys Tike advantages in this respect. it
has had the effect of increasing enormously
the correspondence of the nation and lias
aided materially in the advancement of ed
ucation and enlightenment among the peo
ple.
Commencing tomorrow the government
will put on the market the recently Im
proved money order forms. The charges
in the matter ol fees have been reduced
about 85 per cent. The following section
of the postal laws and regulations, recently
amended, sets forth the new table of fees:
Section 1248. No single money order
shall be issued for more than $100, and the
fees to be charged and exacted lor domestic
money orders are as follows, to-wit:
For orders not exceeding $2 50, 8 cents.
For orders exceeding $2.60 and not ex
ceeding $5, 5 cents.
For orders exceeding$5 and not exceeding
$10, 8 cents.
For orders exceding $10 and not exceed
ing $20, 10 centa.
For orders exceeding $20 and not exceed
ing $30,12 cents.
Knr nrrlftrR ATCPRillnir S3ft nnri not evneflfi
ing {40, 16 cents.
For orders exceeding {40 and not ex
ceeding {60, 18 cents.
For orders exceeding {50 and not exceed
ing |60, 20 cents.
For orders exceeding |60 and not exceed
ing {75 , 25 cents.
For orders exceeding |76 and not exceed
ing {100, 30 cents.
JBy the same act of congress the postal
note has been abolished. Although a con
venience in sending small odd amounts, it
has been ascertained by an experience of
several years that it has cust the people
dearly in lossep. It furnished the pur
chaser no protection whatever, as it was
made payable th bearer and any person
could cash it. During the life of this freak
cf the postofflce department the Birming
ham office issued 62,200 of them.
It has been ascertained that the average
imount of postal notes purchased is {2.50
sad hereafter money orders to that amount
will be issued at 3 cents.
It is believed that the new order of things
will greatly increase tbs business of th e
money order department, since it has been
Drought more in touch with the people and
made more responsive to the commercial
ind business interests of the general pub
ic. __
