BRIDGE THE CAHABA.
The time has come to bridge the Cahaba
river into Shelby county. Our Commis
sioners’ Court have said all along that in
the summer they would take the matter
up. Well, the summer is here and cotton
ia a blooming. It will be In boll while
our Comnflssioners sleep the hot days
away. When it begins to open it will be
“too late. ”
Birmingham wants and needs the bridge.
The people want it. The demands ot trade
and commerce and growth and progress
and prosperity call for the bridge. It
means from 5000 to 10,000 bales of cotton
that can’t be bad without the bridge. It
means county wagon trade of over $100,000
the firs', season.
We have waited too long already for the'
bridge. We have all been looking forward
to it a long time and solacing ourselves
with the sweetly alluring prospects held
out by the Commissioners “ when summer
comeB.’’ We are like Sam Jones. Let’s
have less of the sweet bye and bye and
more of the needful now and now.

THE ANTI-PULLMAN STRIKE.
The great strike of the American Railnty
Union is in one respect unprecedented in
the history of the larger struggles between
capital and labor. We have had strikes
of sympathy, strikes against “scab” ma
terial or the products of scab labor, but
never before a contest on so large a scale by
one union to enforce the rights, real or al- ,
leged, of another. i
The employes of the shops of the Pull
man Palace (Jar Company are on a strike ,
against a reduction of wages and probably
some related grievances. The American
Railway Union says: “Until the Pullman
Company meets the demands of its shop
men, you shall not haul its cars. * ’ These
dBiiroad employes have no grievance what
ever. They are not asking any increase
in wages or decrease of time. So far as *
this strike is concerned, they may all be
perfectly well satisfied with their pay and
treatment. They are simply taking the
motto in all unions that the “concern of ,
one is the concern of all,” and extending it
beyond their own union to labor In gen
eral. <
It is a somewhat analagous case to what
we would have bad here in Binning- <
ham had the railroad engineers and train- <
men refused to haul coal dug by men wbo
took the places of the strikers, with the 1
difference that the Pullman cars on which <
the boycott is now declaredffiajQHKjJT"
Btructed by organ
forecast how the
end, because public opinion has
not jumped as yet one way or the other.
Railroad strikes are peculiarly affected by
the all powerful force of what the public
thlnkB, and that wisely led order, the loco
motive engineers, when striking at the
pocket nerve of the companies, long ago
learned to interfere as little as possible
with the public convenience. Passenger
non ««*■ nftnn onrinnnlo Intmltrnr)
This particular strike, however, of the new
union is aimed directly at the traveling
public's convenience, and it will be sur
prising if there does not arise a tremendous
clamor against the men, and to this the
general managers are doubtless looking as
their reliance forsucceBS. On the contrary,
the roads, which have the fortunes of the
Pullman company absolutely in their
bands, coaid very speedily compel that
company to an accommodation with its
workmen.
The issue, however, really depends on
the simple question: “Uowlong will the
traveling public submit to have its com
fort and convenience destroyed?” We do
not believe the struggle can possibly last
very long. One side or the other must
yield or both must get together.
A CULLMAN COUNTY STATESMAN.
Mr. S. L. Fuller, the Democratic nominee
for the Legislature in Cullman county, U
out in several communications in the last
number of the Tribune, in which he specif
ically declares to the voters his position on
every important question involved in his
duties as a legislator. Such a course de
serves commendation, the more especially
as Mr. Fuller is right in the positions hs
assumes. On the subject of education and
of good roads he is particularly happy.
”1 desire the citizens of Cullman county
to consider the propriety of passing a law
to tax the people to work the 'public
roads,” says Mr. Fuller. Why, he asks,
should not the land owners pay part of the
expense of keeping up the roads? Why
should a man who owns property in Call
man county escape all the harden of build
ing roads to and from hit property because
hs doesn’t happen to live thereT Why
should the poor people, the men without a
dollar, be taxed ten days work per annum
to build and maintain mads for the benefit
of tbe North Alabama Land Company,
which owob 256,000 acres of land?
On the subject of education Mr. Fuller
well says: “By educating them, by and
by we will get many good citizens and
probably statesmen from their ranks. Tbe
history of oar country shows that the ma
jority of the ablest statesmen that this
government has ever bad came from tbe
log houses in the country. Therefore I
am in favor of the Hundley amendment,
which 1 will explain to the people before
the election.’’
Spoken like a statesman 1 It is a pity that
all men who aspire to office do not rise to
the same plane of enlightenment and lib
eral thought.
AN INTEUEST1NU DECISION.
Judge Wilkerson of the City court
handed down an interesting opinion a
few days ago in a case involving commer
cial law. A bank in Tennessee sent a draft
indorsed for collection on account of itself
to the Commercial National bank of Nash
ville, and the latter forwarded the draft
with a similar indorsement to its corre
spondent bank in Birmingham, tbe party
on whom the draft whs drawn living here.
The dratt was paid at maturity to tho Bir
mingham bank, and it placed tbe amount
collected to tbe credit of tbe Commercial
National bank and at once notified the
latter. There were mutual accounts be
tween tbe Nashville and Birmingham
banks, and tbe former was indebted to the
latter in a larger sum than the amount of
the draft. At the end of business on tbe
day the draft was paid and the notice of
collection was given, the Nashville bank
suspended. The ether Tennessee bank
brought suit against the Birmingham
bank for tbe proceeds of the collected
draft. The Judge decided that the giving
credit to the Nashville bank on its in
debtedness to tbe Birmingham bank by tbe
latter was equivalent to a remittance of the
money and justified by the usage of banks,
iud that when a draft is sent for collection
through banks tbe sender impliedly con
tracts that the money shall be collected
»nd remitted In the usual methods of
banks. There was, oi course, no notice to
iny of the parties of the Nashville bank’s
failiDg condition when tbe draft was col
ected. The case was decided for defend
ing and will be appealed, but as tbe ques- •
tion is a novel one it will be watched with
oterest.
THE REASON WHY.
Of all fake reports, so far as we have heard,
Hassell’s beat leads the van. Somebody up
here has reported that “ President Cleveland
ms got. all the money aud gone to Europe.”—
Nortbport Breeze.
The above is a mere sample. In the
lountry districts such nonsense is the com
mon stock in trade of the polyglot opposi
;ion. That is why the leaders are so op
jDHod to a joint discussion. Ignorant
rotera would find out that Mr. Cleveland
lasn’t got the power to fill every man’s
pocket with silver dollars; that Governor
tones doesn’t levy and collect and spend
ill the taxeB as be pleases; tbst Colonel
>ates hasn’t got any horns; that Captain
Colb is a pretty ordinary sort of a mortal,
ind Mr. Skaggs not the source of all
knowledge on the financial question.
They might even find ont that Mr. Good
vyn is mistaken when be declares that
‘Cleveland has three palaceB. ’ ’
ON THE WAR PATH.
Bill Stephens says he proposes to make the
scho of Wallace Mcllwain's foot, when It was
let under his coat tail in the Birmingham '
vigwam, ring all over Alabama before the Olh
>f August shall have passed away. Wallace,’^
tick may yet have a good deal to do ȣ-;th
leclding the Governorship of Alabama _
Selma Times. y
A smaller thing than such an indignity
b was heaped on the leader ol/pje negro
sing of the Republican party t;y the Jeffer
onian convention has det^PTnined the fate
>t great political partmgfja the person of
Jill Stephens, wjpgfwent as a peaceable
itizen and rey<?sentative of his raoe to the
onyenljagr^f a party openly seeking an
illiance with his own party, th3 entire
legro race was kicked ont in ignominious
li8grace. The coming convention of the
legro wing of the G. O. P. will doubtlesB
ake effective steps to avenge the insult.

A CHEER FROM THE JAIL.
On Tuesday, while speaking was going on
in front of the court house, every time the
joys would cheer, the prisoners in Jail would
rail “Hurrah fnr Knlh •’ Thev ovldent.lv
hink Reuben will have a One hotel built for
their accommodation; that fare will be good
ind work light.—Vernon Courier.
The remarkable feature of the campaign
is the unanimity with which the trifling,
the broken down and worthless and the
criminal elements of the population are for
Captain Kolb for governor. We have not
the slightest doubt that 100 per cent of the
convicts, 90 per cent of the ex-oonvicts,
and as many of the jail birds are for the
Uaptain and his party.
THE AMENDMENT IN PIKE.
It Is a very gratifying faot that, so far as we
know, there la no opposition In either party in
this county to the Hundley school amendment.
It is to be hoped that none will develop. He
who would stand In the way of any movement
calculated to advance the Interest of educa
tion In this country ia uuflt to be trusted with
the ballot or anything else.—Troy Messenger.
Strong, but true. Alabama, among all
the forty-four States of the American
Union, occupies the “last and hindmost
place” on the subject of ednoation. The
only hope of any progress is in the adop
tion of this amendment. Even in the cit
ies the general tendency now is backward.
Bot'b parties should rally to the amendment!"

Pat Walsh, having tasted the red, red
wine of office, would fain drain the glasal

We again urge upon the Hon. Daniel

Bibmingham manufacturers cannot af

People who are able to go away for a

North Alabama is fall of delightful resorts

We try to keep up with the procession;
in all measures looking to progress in man<^
ufacturing. But .we caa’t tall in with
' f
proposition now before the Legislature of
Louisiana empowering municipalities to
levy a special tax of 5 mills to be employed
in giving bonuses to maaufaotories. That
is esseutially progress backward. Building
factories is a private bneiness and should
never be assumed by tbe public.
Tbe military have gone and leave no en
emies behind save among tbe Jeffersonian
politicians. Even the strikers were on the
best of terms with the boys and around
the camps, on the dummies and in town
were always friendly sod even chummy.
When Colonel Keese came and took
charge of tbe Jeffersonian headquarters and
Chairman Skaggs went on the slump, the
temperature ran up to a hundred all over
the State. Let New York and Mr. Dana
look out.
About f3,000,000 of Egyptiau cotton is

There is at least one traveler with whom

‘PROOF, YOUR HONOR, 13 THE

LOWE IN A MURDER TRIAL.
?or the Age-Herald:
Jn errand once q| ineroy sped
An angel on ifhe wings of light.
‘Go thrq-Q'jfh the world,” the message said,
Aippeow the germs of truth and right!”
Germany a land and mountain height
And valley dark the ungel flew—
Per many a realm of clouds and night
The germs of truth the angel threw!
Still on, and on! o’er woodland, plain.
The angel flew and scattered seeds
Of sympathy with human pain
And human ills and human needs!
And some were germs that fell to heal
The wounds ot those who suffered wrong—
\rd some for all—the common weal,
For common right ’gainst common wrong!
[t planted germ to bloom in white,
When evidence conflicting grew—
The flower of truth, ’twixt wrong and right—
The legal proof of what is true!
From age to age the seeds were sown,
To guide the footsteps of mankind,
Pill now with man, more perfect grown.
The light of reason guides the mind.
Twixt reason, passion, then the mind
In equity can draw tlio line.
If law Is wrong for all mankind—
A line of light that Is divine.
Then he, who would from error turn,
Should from the law’s deep learning draw.
And from it will this losson learn,
The flower of truth is proof in law!

INDUSTRIAL.
Hot Blast: Anniston is to have a bag
factory. This is an industry that has been
talked about for several years and cow we
are to have it. Messrs. John H. Noble and
O. H. Parker are at the bead of it, and
with their names to give It prestige and
their ability to look after its affairs there is
no donbt of its being a success from the
jump. The machinery has all been or
dered and it is hoped to have tbe plant
running by the 1st of August. It will
probably be located in the Rollstone build
ing, on' Fifteenth and Walnut streets,
though that is not definitely decided yet.
Bags for flour and meal and in fact all
kinds ofclotb bags will be maunfactnred.
Some twenty-five or thirty people will be
given employment at first and the number
increased as business justifies. The new
venture will have sufficient money placed
to its credit to give it ample working cap
ital.
Qadsden Times-News: Why not build a
cotton factory in Gadsden? Nothing
would tend more to revive bueiuess and
trade and give employment to the idle la
borer than an enterprise of this kind. It
would give aa impetus to the whole sur

A recipe for a love potion this:
Gather the valley lily wet with dew
And from its blossoms rich concoctions brew,
An essence sweet, more subtle than a kiss,
Something as transient and as rare as bliss,
Keep in a golden phial, and ’tis true—
A touch of this on lips will hearts imbue
With love as deep, as clear as heaven’s abyss.
So In the golden vases of the thought

Whose loss rich memory would compensate,

Mr. Thomas Harrison of Jomison, Ala.,
Knows the Electropoise to Be
a Good Thing.
I have been using the Electropoise in my
family and on friends for sixteen months,
and in that time I have cured in my own
immediate family dyspepsia and catarrh,
though neither case was iu an aggravated,
form. I have seeu It cure colds in a very
short time. My wife is in better health
now, from the use of Electropoise, than
Bhe has been for years.
Quite an interesting and remarkable case
that I have treated ie that of a little negro
who bad not walked any for a year, and
was also nearly blind. It had no appetite
and was in a terrible plight, bnt after a few
applications of the Electropoise it began to
improve, and now it can see very much
better,can walk all right and eats anything
it wants to.
The Electrnnnise will eprtainlv r.nrn rh.n.

Wetumpka Times-Democrat: In a card
to the Birmingham Aom-Herald, Mr. W.
H. Skaggs, among other things, said: “it
is untrue that 1 said in my Welumpka
speech that Governor Jones had no right
to order out the militia. I may justly
claim too muob intelligence to make sucu
a ridiculous statement.” Now we at
tended that speaking and we are positively
certaiu that Mr. Skaggs did say that Gov
ernor Jones had no nghl to send the state
militia to Birmingham. As near as we can
remember, be said: “Governor Jones had
no authority to send the state militia to
Birmingham—the order was not from the
sheriff, mayor dot marshal, but from
Henry DeBardeleben, and I guess you all
know him from reputation. He is a life
long republican, and contributed to Tom
Jones’ campaign in the last election. The
soldiers were not sent there to keep peace,
but to worry the miners, and with the
miners away negroes could be put in
their places and could be treated just as
the owners desired.” Mr. Skaggs knows
that he said it, and made no friends by it,
and there is no use in him trying to craw
fish out of it.
