Jacksonville, January 7.—(Special.)— Capt. James Crook of this city lias fre quently been named as a very probable candidate for the position of president of the state railroad commission—a position f which he formerly held—should B. B. Comer be elected governor. When seen yesterday by your representative here and questioned as to the probability of his announcing for the position In question, lie 'made the following reply: "Yes, It is true that friends have fre quently urged me to enter the race for president of tile railroad commissioners— which, you know, will become vacant only upon the election of Mr, Comer to the office of governor—but I wish to state very emphatically that I. will not take any positive action upon the suggestion. "As you know, I am now president of ■the Southern Cotton Growers' associa tion for Calhoun county, an organization will cli wisely excludes politics and promptly disposes of any official who aspires to political preferment. And I most heartily endorse this feature of the organization, for into all other organiza tions or orders looking to the prosperity of agriculture and independence of the farmer, politics has brought discord, dis sension and disintegration. I believe that the hopo of the south is dependent upon the success of the Southern Cotton Grow ers’ association and the success of the association contingent upon the exclusion of politics and politicians from its coun cils. I would not support any man for office who had nothing else to commend him to me than his membership in tile Southern Cotton Grower#’ association; and if at any future .time I give my con sent to become a candidate for public of fice, I shall resign my position with that organization, take my chances with the boys and solicit preferment upon merit alone.’’ Captain Cook sincerely has the Inter ests of the south and the prosperity of tlie southern planter at heart, and he will hence very likely give serious considera tion to an announcement as candidate for commissioner of agriculture. However, he declines to commit himself and it cannot be stated authoritatively that he will make any political overtures at all. H. P. Montgomery of this city, who was recently appointed by Probate Judge E. P. Crook to examine the books of Coun ty Treasurer H. B. Glover, has com pleted his examination, and reports Mr. Glover's books to be in a very good con dition. When seen ' by The Age-Herald representative yesterday, Air, Glover stated that the condition of the county treasury is highly satisfactory, there now being a larger surplus on hand than there has been at any former time during his Incumbency. Owing to a recent illness in his family, Mr. Glover says that he is not in a position at present to give the exact figures of the county's financial standing, but he will make a report to the county commissioners next week, when the figures will be made public. --- -- MEETING IS CALLED.

L, GDI _ Doctor Has Ordered a Few Months Rest CHURCH ACTS WEDNESDAY Bessemer Making an Effort Toward the Erection of an Opera House and Assembly Hall. Notes and Personals. Bessemer. January 7.—(Special.)—The following letter, which explains itself, was today sent to the members of the First Baptist church by the pastor, the Rev. R. S. Gavin: Bessemer, Ala., January 7. 1906. To the Members of the First Baptist Church. Bessemer. Ala. Dear Brethren and Sisters—You are aware of the fact that I am suffering from a diseased hip. I have consulted the best surgical talent and skill in Mobile and New’ Orleans, and am assured that a cure can be effected without an opera tion. But I must quit work, they tell me, for twro or three months. 1 do not believe the physicians will allow me to do any more pastoral work before the middle of March or first of April. And further more. they have ordered me to take my rest in the country. This I have arranged to do. Nowr, I am unwilling to continue to be your pastor in name only. You may be willing, in very fact, to be without a pastor during the time of my inability to serve you; but I do not believe the cause ought to go that long without pas torial care. I, therefore, hereby offer you my resig nation, effective at once; and 1 trust you will accept it, and call my successor immediately. The conditions here make it very imperative that the pastor be on the field all the time. Every day he is absent, makes against the cause. T hope you will not allow your sympathy for me and mine to Influence you in this matter. Please do not refuse to accept my resig nation because you feel that the accept ance of it will put a minister and his family without a home. The Lord has been good to us in the past; and the fu ture to us is as bright as the promises are sure. We are not despondent, oven a little bit. The Baptist cause here is doing well now, and it must not suffer for want of pastoral care. It is useless for me to say that I have enjoyed my connection with you; you know I have. And it Is equally useless for me to say that I regret that this pleasant connection must now be severed. But our personal likes and dis likes must yield to the will of Him whose we are. and whom we love and try to serve. This is one of the great doctrines I have tried in my weakness to preach unto you from the' hegining. And may our God abundantly bless you In all you plan, and in all you do. Yours sincerely, etc., R. S. GAVIN. The letter will be formally considered at a business meeting to be held by the members of the First Baptist church next Wednesday night. While the members desire to give their pastor three or four months in which to recuperate his health and are willing to suffer the interruption in the work and the deprivation of the presence pf a pas tor it Is not thought that the members will consent to the permanent resigna tion of the Rev. Mr. Gavin. I'll© Rev. Mr. Gavin lias been in charge of the church at this place for two years and during his stay here has become closely identified wdth the church work of the city and is greatly beloved by not only the members of his church but the people generally. He announced today that he hoped to be able in three or four months rest to regain his health and strength. Ho and his family will spend a few months with Mrs. Gavin’s people in South Alabama. Opera House Needed. “One of the greatest needs of Bessemer is an opera house or other building suit able for the holding of public entertain ments and for the presentation of shows." said R. M. Mcngea, who has charge of the Library hall, yesterday. “The Library hall is the best thing we have, and that is not adequate to the demands of the town. The matter of the erection of an opera house has been under consideration for some time, and T am of the opinion that something will bo done in this direction at an early date. The local lodge of Elks has been consid ering a plan of building an opera house and lodge room, but no definite steps have yet been taken. “1 understand that certain individuals in the city are figuring on a plan of erecting a building suitable for an opera house and lodge room, and I hope that they will succeed. “Bessemer is a good show town, and with a good opera house T am sure that we could secure some of the best at tractions that come to tjiis district. And aside from this, Bessemer needs a large and convenient assembly hall for the ac commodation of conventions and other meetings where large crowds are assem bled. “I would like to see this matter agitat ed until this great need of the city has been supplied.” Notes and Personals. The members of the First Presbyterian church postponed the meeting that was to have been held this morning for the consideration of the new church build ing until Sunday, January 21, on account of the absence of the pastor, the Rev. R. C. Gilmore, who has not yet arrived from Washington, where he was married, last Wednesday.

The Rev. W. E. Morris, the new pastor of the First Methodist church, preached to a very large congregation this morn ing. The Rev. Mr. Morris is making many friends in Bessemer, and is well liked by the members of his congregation.
