Large crowds hang around First ave nue, between Twentieth and Twenty-first streets, all day to watch "Vermelto,” the Japanese magican in a series of mystify ing slight of hand tricks, and perform the Hindoo feat of producing a rose bush in full bloom In three minutes. Ralls disappear from the hand of the magician in the twinkling of an eye and turn up in the most unlooked for places. Pictures are transferred from a frame in the magicians hand to another frame in a distant corner. The crowning performance is the Hindoo feat. The magician takc‘8 a flower pot nearly filled with earth and plants the seed. After placing the pot on a table he covers it with a conical shaped tube which is hollow. Making a few passes over the pot he uncovers it and on bring ing It to the window where the crowd can sec. a little bush has commenced to grow. Once more he places the flower pot on the table and again covers It. After a few more passes he again exposes it to view and it is seerTthat the bush is a lit tle larger. Again the same process is gone through and when for the third time the flower pot is uncovered a beautiful IhjsIi of roses Is exposed to view. The magician clips the roses off with a pair of scissors and they are given to ladies. Yesterday afternoon about twelve blossoms were cut off the bush.

The play was written by John C. Webb, who evidently has made a study of the south and is well able to handle the sub ject ho attempts. There are several typical southern scenes in "The Land O’ Cotton" which makes it popular in this section. Under Two Flags. "Under Two Flags" will bo the attrac tion at tlie Jefferson theatre tomorrow and Thursday nights and Thanksgiving day matinee. Of this production the Philadelphia Item said: "It has been said, and truly ^aid. that had Ouida written naught but 'Under Two Flags’ and portrayed no other char acters than those of Bertie Cecil, the ex patriated Englishman, and Cigarette, vi va ndlere and little soldier of France, her fame would yet have been Immortal. "Within the limits of a live-act drama it is. of course. Impossible to include all of the beauties of the original story, one which has stirred chivairic hearts for many a long year past, but Paul M. Pot ter has done wonderfully well within the enforced limitations set him, and the. result is a powerful play, which sets the heart to dancing In unison with the wild, untutored love of the brave Cigarette. A truly lovable character is this vivandlere, natural Bohemian and daughter of the Chasseurs de Algeria, and the heart of the spectator pulsates in unison with her own. as through travail, danger and even scorn she lives her life and her love and eventually gives up the first for the last." “Sweet Sixteen.” ‘‘Sweet Sixteen” is the unique title givun the musical comedy which will be presented at the Jefferson theatre by toe Wills Musical Comedy company next Friday. The chorus, in fifteen different numbers, it is said, is but one of the many features offered. The scenery carried is all special and from the “Hodgdon’’ studios in New York city. The specialties, it is said, are all new and novel. “At Atlantic City” and “Two Old Cronies’’ will be played by the same com pany Saturday matinee and night. An unusually cheap scale of prices will pre vail. At the Bijou. The Bijou theatre was almost filled last night to witness the first performance In I this city of the pastoral play, “The Night Before Christmas.” The play is w'ell sup ported and far above the average plays seen at the Bijou this season. The court scene in the third act in which Judge Phil lips is compelled to condemn to death his innocent son in the presence of his mother and sw'eetheart is specially well acted. The character of Judge Phillips la par ticularly well sustained by Jack Drupiler while Amanda Hendrix, as Marlon Wil liams, the heroine, and Helen Gourney as Mrs. Phillips, the judge’s wife and tTfc* mother of the hero, both rendered their respective parts with unusual ability. The three children, Ethel Clifton, Emily Clifton and Charles Clifton captivated the audience in the opening act when the San ta Claus tableaux made a fitting climax. NO TIDINGS BROUGHT.

In the meantime the management of the Alabama team has been keeping very quiet, and is evidently preparing to spring a surprise. Coach Blount has been using his foxy talents during the past few days and has put the Alabamians in a position to do some excellent defensive work. If Alabama can wlthstay the onslaught of their opponents they can come near beat ing anybody. Their offensive play Is superb and with a good defense there is no reason to expect a defeat at the hands of Tennessee. In a few days the foot ball scribe at the University of Alabama is expected to Inform the public as to the actual strength of the team, whivh Is expected to preserve the state's athle tic honor at West End. The local ipanagoment has made ex cellent arrangements for handling the crowds, and the field will be absolutely protected from the crowd by strong wire screens. Every spectator will have a clear view of the field. | CITY ITEMS.

AN APPEAL IS MADE BY THE MERCY HOME / ANNUAL THANKSGIVING DAY DO NATIONS ARE NEEDED AND THE LADIES WANT LIBERAL RE SPONSES AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. The Mercy Home bo^rd of directors has issued an appeal to the people of Bir mingham asking them to remember that organization on Thanksgiving day and to make liberal donations. The appeal is as follows: To the Public: In appealing again for a Thanksgiving offering for the Mercy Home, we realize that nothing new can be said. It must be largely a repetition of former appeals. Year after year the work goes on—the same number of homeless little children, or baby waifs, of the aged and friendless and unfortunate to be cared for and clothed and fed. During the year you occasionally read in the daily papers of a baby left on some door step, or of a child taken from vicious parents, or a girl from false friends and “sent to the Mercy Home.” Perhaps as you read you think it is a good thing to have such an institution In our city; but have you ever thought of the practical side of the constant tireless work that makes it possible? Have you ever thought of the detail wrork of the admission committee, of the continual care of the house and clothing committee, and the daily and almost hour ly emergencies that demand special and extra outlay of time and money? Through the columns of the Age-Herald you have recently heard of one depart ment of trie home, under the care of its valuable auxiliary, “The Creche," but the Creche cannot provide for the children’s board and one woman cannot possibly care for twenty-five children. Then, add to these twenty-five children of school age. twenty little ones in the nursery under 5 years of age. and you get some idea of the average family. It is only by the system of having the older members of the household care for the younger that the work Is maintained so economically. The home has no regu lar income save an appropriation of $50 a month from the city, and a small al lowance per capita for the most destitute cases from the county. Our hospitals do not provide for mater nity wards and places for chronic cases, and these, too. are constantly coming to us and must he cared for. We do not give public entertainments. As quietly and unostentatiously as possible the work is carried on, trusting always to the kind ly active sympathy of the Birmingham public, for we believe that the warm hearts of this community will always re spond to our requests and contribute the money necessary for the work. The Mercy Home is yours for service, and we ask you will remember us In your thanksgiving this week, that the services so freely given may he continued and | commensurate with the needs. Donations may be sent to the home, corner of North Eleventh avenue and Twenty-second street, or to the president, Mrs. P. B. Spencer. 1621 Twelfth avenue, south. THE BOARD OF MANAGERS. WOMEN AGAIN ASK PUBLIC FOR HELP UNITED CHARITIES WANT THE I PEOPLE TO MAKE LIBERAL DO NATIONS FOR THE THANKSGIV ING BASKETS FOR THE POOR. The call for donations to the United Charities in order that the Thanksgiving j baskets can be filled has not yet been I answered as liberally as the women de sire. Yesterday afternoon Mrs. R. G. I>owi*. the president, stated that the do nations were not as liberal as they have been in past years, but that she expect ed a good many merchants to respond today and tomorrow. The headquarters of the United Char ities are on Third avenue and Twenty second street, and some one is there near ly all day to receive the donations. To morrow the ladles will spend the day packing the baskets and delivering them to all who'call and ask for them. In these baskets the object is to put enough good food to make each family have two or three good meals, and fre quently there is a turkey. There are a number of poor people in the city who suffered last wreek from the cold on ac count of the lack of coal and provisions, and the ladies hope to aid them all Thurs day. MUST WORK OR STARVE. Commissioner Advocates Stringent Measures for the Indians. Washington, November 23.—The annual report of Commissioner of Indian Affairs Jones advocates the education of the In [ dian In the rudiments of the English lan guage and that he be taught that he must work or starve. The commissioner thinks this policy in a generation or more will regenerate the race and that the In dian should be protected only to the ex tent that he may gain confidence in him self, leaving nature and civilized condi tions to do the rest. There were 257 Indian schools in oper ation during the year, 91 being reserva tion boarding schools, 26 non-reservation and 140 day schools. The enrollment of pupils was 241,357 and employes numbered 2282. Mr. Jones strongly denounced the “sun” and other “religious” dances of the In dians. and says that reports of eye-wit nesses of these performances show they are revolting In the extreme. A total of $757,173 has been paid to the Indians for their inherited lands under the act of May 27. 1902. TRIED TO HURT WOMAN. Negro Charged With Beating Woman and Threatening Her Life. John Saunders, a negro man. was ar rested on Second avenue and Eighteenth street last night and sent to jail on a charge of assault and battery and carry ing coiJCe&led weapons. Policemen Richardson and Brown made the arrest on the complaint of a negro woman who said the man had knocked her, beaten her and badly injured her. The woman had her arm In a sling and was very much terrified as she said the negro w'as trying to get her in the dark to kill her. The man when arrested had a Colts re volver in his hand and his pocket was full of cartridges. He will appear before Judge Feagln today. Richmond Place May Be Sold. London.

Paris, November 23.—Foreign Minister Delcasse addressed the chamber o£ depu ties today In reply to qudhtlons regarding foreign affairB. He opened with a state ment in regard to the Panama question and said: "I am asked for information concern ing the action of France. Here is what has been done. Having received, informa tion that Panama had constituted herself an independent republic we had only to consider that she had fulfilled the necessa ry conditions for the maintenance of order and what guarantees she offered. From the Freribh point of view, we have not been without apprehension for some time. It has been said at Bogota for several months that the decision of the Colombian government prolonging the canal conces sion to 1910 was open to dispute'and that in 1904 the concession might have been de clared to have lapsed. If this story had ever been put forward officially we would not have, accepted It. It was our strict duty to demand from the republic of Pan ama assurances -that all French interests including the canal concession, be respect ed. This assurance has been given in de cisive form, the following being the text ual form of the promise: "The republic of Panama solemnly, ex plicitly and definitely pledges itself to vigilantly protect French Interests and to maintain and interpret in their widest sense the contracts made before Novem ber 3, which referring to the Isthmus, fol low the transmission of sovereignty and bind the republic of Panama, All thq con tracts are maintained, notably the con tract prolonging the cession until '1910." roilows u. b. Example. M. Delcasse continued: “Under these conditions we had only to follow' the ex ample set by the United States and per mit our agents to enter into relations with all the agents of the new republic.'* The declaration of the foreign minister was received with applause. M. Delcasse then described the condi tions In Macedonia. He said the remedy for the abuses complained of was to ac cord Macedonia reforms which can be. applied to the entire population, without dinstinetion of race or religion, and to extend to every individual protection and the enjoyment of the fruits of his work. The reforms must be controlled closely. Europe, if necessary, would bring relief and prevent new revolts. Russia and Austria had been charged to enforce the programme. In regard to Siam. M. Del casse said the government was doing ev- j erything possible to arrive at a pacific ; understanding. Referring to the Anglo-French arbitra tion treaty, M. Delcasse attributed it to the czar's peace pronouncement of five years ago, praised the entente with Great Britain and felicitated France on th* reapproachment with Italy. France Paramount in Morocco. In Morocco, the foreign minister said in conclusion, France was paramount. Nevertheless, French interests demand ed that the country be tranquil and in dependent. I At the close of the general debate on the policy of the government Deputy Hub bart brought in a motion requesting the government to join with foreign powers for the purpose of limiting the military burdens of Europe. Foreign Minister Del casse replied that it was not the business of France to make proposals. The French government. M. Delcasse said, had already set the example, as its naval and military budgets had been decreased year by year, while the budgets of other pow ers had been increased. If, said M. Del casse. the example set by France were j fruitless, mere words would be unheed ed. and they would only compromise the I dignity of the nation. It was not for I France to take the initiative.' i After a heated discussion In which M. Jaurez, socialist, took a prominent part, a resolution approving the foreign policy of tho government was carried by an enormous majority. senator Morgan’scores the PRESIDENT ON PANAMA POLICY (Continued from First Page) Nelson.
