LOCAL CASES UP
FOR FINAL ACTION
MANY INTERESTING LAWSUITS
FROM JEFFERSON COUNTY TO
BE CONjIDERED BY THE ALA
BAMA SUPREME COURT.
This is the week in the Alabama su
preme court for the consideration of cases
from the Sixth district, which includes
JefTerson county, and as a result the local
courts will be pretty well deserted.
No cases have been set in any of the
county courts for the week on account
of the large number of lawyers that was
expected to be out of the city.
Supreme court week this year will take
about twenty-five of Birmingham's law
yers to Montgomery to look after the In
terests of their various clients.
The United States court does not have
a light docket for the week, as do the
county courts, but Judge Jones will ar
rive this morning and court will be held
In the government building as usual.
There is an especially large number
of cases to come up before the supreme
court this week in which the people of
Birmingham and of the county are in
terested. One of the things that will be
watched with interest is the appeal of
Glen Havis from the judgment rendered
in the criminal court here of twelve years
and a half imprisonment, he having been
convicted of the murder of E. M. Lathem.
Of course, the appeal of the judgment
in the habeas corpus proceedings of Will
iam Wise to procure his release on bail
have been withdrawn since Mr. Wise has
been tried and acquitted.
The Lakeview Land company matter,
in which is involved the interest of the
public in certain lands set aside as parks
near Lakeview and the injunction to pre
vent the enforcement by the Birmingham
chief of police of the city ordinance
against pool selling and betting on races
will be looked after by City Attorney E.
D. Smith.
NEGROES UP AGAINST IT.
Out-of-Town Darkies Suffering Heavily
In Police Court.
Out o' town negroes are suffering heav
ily In the police court recently, as sev
eral of them have received sentences
which will make them prisoners for
months. Within the past few days there
have been not a few cases of carrying
concealed weapons before Judge Feagln
and each of them was some out of town
man. Judge Feagln says that pistol-tot
ing Is confined almost entirely to strang
«
ers.
Yesterday Robert Oliver, a negro, was
fined and sentenced for a period of two
years for petty larceny and carrying con
cealed weapons. The negro was arrest
ed last week on a charge of stealing a
pistol, and when the policemen searched
him they found a pistol tn his pocket.
His fines were S90 and 180 days in each
case.
Charles Nolan, another negro, was
fined S90 and sentenced to work ISO daya
on a charge of carrying a concealed pis
tol. Both of the negroes are from An
niston.

MORELI IS TO MAKE
"VOLCAN" FOR FAIR
Famous New York Sculpter
Has Made Model
CLAY MODEL WCOMEHERE
Sculptor Will Have Entire Charge of
Molding the Figure In Birming
ham and Erecting at St.
Louis—Raising Money.
Moreli, a New York sculptor, has been
engaged to model and superintend the
structure of the ‘‘Vulcan" which is to rep
resent the Birmingham district at the
St. Louis exposition. The contract has
been signed by James A. MacKnight, who
Is the representative of the special com
mittee which has the matter In hand.
The Vulcan Is to be about fifty feet high
and made of Iron with a base representing
the mineral deposits of the district. An
eight foot clay model has been made by
Moreli and this Is to be sent to Birming
ham and placed in the Commercial club
rooms. A photograph of the clay model
has been forwarded to Birmingham.
Moreli will come to Birmingham and
personally superintend moulding the Vul
can, and will afterwards see that It Is
properly constructed at St. Louis. He is
connected with the Mott Iron works of
New York city, and has a great deal of
experience In this line. The total cost
of the iron man will be about $8000, while
the remainder of the district exhibit will
probably cost about the same amount.
The remaining $8000 of the $20,000 which is
being raised, will probably go to the state
fund which Is being raised by the Ala
bama World's Fair Exhibit association
organized here last Monday.
The active canvass for funds for the
county exhibit will be taken up again
this week, and it Is believed that by the
end of the month sufficient money will be
on hand to make the definite statements
about the various amounts to be used for
different purposes.
Already the required amount is In sight,
and the start of $5000 made hy the board
of revenue has greatly encouraged the
committee. It Is expected that the mayor
and board of aldermen of Birmingham
will make a handsome appropriation at
the next meeting.
It is the purpose of the committee to
have the Vulcan placed in Capitol park as
soon as the exposition is closed. It will be
placed at the head of Twentieth street and
will add to the historical interest of this
place. The model represents a bearded
figure with a leather apron, one arm ex
tended high over its head holding a trlon
and the other resting on a stump. Around
the bast will be a metallurgical exhblt.

REV. DR. HANDLEY SHAKES
HANDSWITH CHIEF WIER
The Rev. Dr. L. S. Handley, pastor of
the Central Presbyterian church, yester
day afternoon went to the office of Chief
of Police W, lfl. Wier to personally thank
him for the aid he is giving the best peo
ple of the city in suppressing gambling
in the city.
Dr. Handley said that he wished to
shake hands with Chief Wier and to
thank him most cordially for his efforts.
He said that it was a fight to protect
the young men of the city from the gam
blers and he was glafl to see the stand
taken by Chief Wier in this matter. He
said:
“It is not right to the young men of
Birmingham and to their parents who
have tried to raise them right for the
gamblers to take away the money for
which they work. It Is not right for a
young man to work hard for his salary
and then to give It all to the gamblers."
At a meeting of the Presbytery of Bir
mingham, held at Dr. Handley's church
about two weeks ago, a resolution was
passed appointing a committee to Investi
gate why there was so much gambling
going on in the city of Birmingham and
why It was not suppressed.
The committee has been at work, and
It is understood that they were shown
the facts In regard to the number of
gambling houses running and the number
of gamblers here. They were shown that
at present there is not a gambling house
In the city running open and that the
number of gamblers in the city is very
small in comparison with the past.

WIFE AND BABIES
SADLY NEGLECTED
A HUSBAND APPEARS BEFORE
JUDGE FEAGIN ON A CHARGE OF
FAILING TO SUPPORT HIS FAM
ILY—A PITIFUL STORY.
The pitiful story of the drunken hus
band forsaking his wife and children, and
the noble efforts of the mother and two
small sons to provide for the babies was
again brought out before Judge Feagin
yesterday In police court.
Standing in front of his honor was J.
T. Clowers, a trunk maker, who, it was
charged, for more than a month had
been more or less under the effects of
whisky, and-was not providing food or
clothing for his family.
Such was the evidence of the part the
man had played In the tragedy, and for
it Judge Feagin fined him *50 and sen
tenced him to work ninety days on the
streets. But such a punishment would
be worse on the family than on the man,
and In order to relieve them Judge Fea
gin will this morning remit the tine and
sentence provided Clowers will agree to
quit drinking and provide for his wife and
six little children.
The story of the man Is only half the
facts, and they are the worst half. What
the woman did Is another bit of evidence,
and when she told the court of her trials
and her efforts to provide for her family
there were few eyes which did not bear
a trace of tears.
During all this time the woman worked
all day in a laundry in the city and fre
quently did other work until 12 and 1
o'clock at night, seeking to give food,
clothing and to provide fires to keep her
babies warm. The woman had a noble
face, and she excited the sympathy of the
entire court.
She also told of the $wo oldest boys,
both bright little fellows, who have sold
papers morning and night to aid her In
supporting the other children. She told
how they had made a few cents dally and
brought every cent of it to her each night,
helping her and tilling the place her hus
band should have filled.
Judge Feagin said It was one of the
most pitiful Instances in his court In
months.

itely that the order would be placed here,
yet It was stated by responsible parties

A prominent man who Is identified with
the Industrial Interests of this district

of time-before Alabama Iron and steel
products would be In great demand all
over the world. This order for cast Iron
pipe he said, if placed here, will only be

ROOTER BROWN A HUNTER.
Kills Fine Buck in Tuscaloosa County
Weighing 200 Pounds.
Jesse Brown, known far and wide as
“Rooter” Brown, the noted baseball en
thusiast who, with his stentorian voice
voice, has saved Birmingham many a
hard fought contest on the diamond by
guying the opposing team, has been
hunting. “Rooter” returned yesterday,
and across his gigantic shoulders was
thrown as fine a buck as was ever seen
in Birmingham, which he pulled down in
Tuscaloosa county. He also hunted in
some of the adjoining counties lost week.
The buck weighed close to 200 pounds,
and was sold for $20 to a dealer in the
city. Besides the buck the “Rooter” came
back with a nice string of birds and
several of his friends of baseball fame
have shared them with him. It Is said

LOOKING FOR BOYS
TO JOIN THE NAVY
LIEUT. L. C. RICHARDSON OPEN8
RECRUITING STATION HERE.
MORE THAN A DOZEN APPLY
AND FIVE ACCEPTED.
Lieut. L. C. Richardson of the United
States navy will be In Birmingham till
Saturday next and receive men and boys
for the navy. The recruiting station was
opened yesterday and was crowded all
day long with young men and boys who
have, or Imagine they have, a craving
for a life on the rolling wave. About
fourteen In all got as far ns the medical
officer and of that number nine were In
formed that their physical condition did
not come up to the standard demanded by
Uncle Sam.
Lieutenant Richardson said yesterday
that he only wanted men who meant
business. "Great pains." he said, "are
taken to instruct the boys, and no mat
ter how crude they may be when they
enter the service they leave It men. well
fitted to meet the requirements of life.
"Love of adventure Is the prevailing
reason for so many applicants for ad
mission to the navy. This desire for an
exciting life predominate more In the
south than In the north, where only a
lukewarm spirit Is manifested. The
southern boys make by far the best sail
ors, because, 1 suppose, of their exuber
ant love of adventure.
"There are more applicants accepted In
Birmingham In proportion to the number
that apply, than any other city I have
been. Taking the whole country at large
we accept about 20 per cent, but In this
city at least thirty out of every hundred
will pass '
Outside of apprentices and seaman, me
chanics and artlzans In every branch of
trade Is wanted and It Is expected that a
great many will enlist In Birmingham.
Lieutenant Richardson Is already known
in this eity as he was here last July.
He served on the flagship Mew York un
der Admiral Samson during the Spanish
Amerlcan war. and at one time aid to
Governor B. F. Tilley at the Samoan

be present.
Enough replies have been received
to indicate that 106 persons will be

The Press Club dinners are unique in

occasions of that kind held in the south.
The Gridiron Club of Washington is its
only rival in the United States, and while
many of the Ideas in the Gridiron Club
have been utilised the varfons skits of the
Birmingham club are entirely original
and provocative of great mirth. The
newspaper men do not hesitate to put
their guests on the roasting irons and
from beginning to end of the banquet
there is a continual uproar.
Senator Hanna, Senator Gorman and
former President Grover Cleveland were
invited hut on account of the special ses

be present. Mr. Cleveland had a previous
engagement which prevented his atten
dance but he sent a very happy letter
in notifying the club of his decision.
The chairman of the reception commit
tee has requested all members to be In
the parlors of the Morris hotel at 9 o’clock
tonight as there will be considerable work
In the arrangement of seats. The ban

city of Birmingham.
SMALLPOX RUMOR
CAUSED TROUBLE
JUROR WAS OBJECT OF TERROR
BECAUSE SOME ONE SAID HE
HAD DREAD DISEASE—THERE
WAS NOTHING WRONG.
W. L. Simms of DeKalb county, who is
serving on the jury in the United States
court, has been a very much worried man
recently because it was rumored ho had
smallpox and everyone dcdgeil him.
He walked Into the office of the clerk
yesterday with a decidedly worried look
as though the cares of the wo-hl hung
heavily upon him.
"Ijook here, these felldws are telling
around here that J've got the smallpox,”
he said.
It Is re-narkable how room will always
he made for a man when he makes such
an assertion as that. Involuntarily men
who are near him make way for the
speaker as though he. were some terrible
prize fighter or other being of whom ev
eryone stands In awe. Mr. Simms was
given all the standing room he required.
•'I’ve got a doctor’s certificate here to
shew that I am all right,” he continued.
"I don't want Marshall Cooper or any
of those other fellows to be afraid of me
for I am just as apt to catch the small
pox from them as they are to catch it
from me.” he added, moving over toward
a man standing near him, who immedi
ately gave him more room.
"Well, my advice to you Is to go and
get vaccinated in four places, once on
each leg and on each arm." said the clerk.
"Of course, I am not afraid of you be- i
cause I have had smallpox, but then these
scary fellows would feel easier If you
would do that.”
"Well, the thing has gotten beyond the
point of a joke with me,” said Mr. Simms,
"and I want to get this misunderstanding
cleared up, because it is not very pleas
ant for any of us.”
He left the office to seek Marshall
Cooper and still wore the worried look
that adorned his countenance when he
first entered the office.
