White, Defend ant’s Attorney, is Absent SCHOOL BUILDING UNSAFE Roberta School at Bessemer Is Sus pended Pending an Investigation of the Building—Council Meets Tonight. Bessemer, January 15.*—(Special.)—The case of the state against T. J. Cornwell, who Is charged with the embezzlement of funds from the defunct Bessemer Sav ings bank, was continued indefinitely in i the Bessemer city court today by agree- : ment of attorneys on account of the ab sence of Capt. Frank S. White, one of the attorneys for the defense. Captain White was engaged in the trial of an important case at Birmingham and could not possibly attend court in Besse mer for several days. When the case was called in court this morning James Weatherly, who had been appointed acting Judge for the trial of the Cornwell case, was on the bench. Mr. •Cornwell expressed a desire that the case be taken up and tried at once, but his attorney, W. K. Smith, declined to do so in the absence of Captain White and final ly on agreement of court and attorneys that the case would be reset later in the present term it was continued and court adjourned for the week. This was the only case set down for the present week, as it was thought that it would consume the entire time. The grand jury will meet for the spring ' term February 5. School Suspended. The Roberts school of this city was suspended for the week this morning by | the city officials and the school trustees on account of the bad condition of the ' building. Competent inspectors will be employed to examine the house and report on its safety, there being some apprehension that the wralls are in a dangerous condi tion and liable to collapse. For several years there has been a large crack in one of the outside walls and since the rainy spell it is noticed that the fissure is enlarging and the walls are somewhat out of plumb. At a meeting of the school committee of the city council and the members of the school board it was decided to sus pend school In the building until a thor ough inspection had been made by com petent builders. In case the investiga tion shows that the building is safe, as is contended by some of the people and even by a few of the members of the city council, school will be resumed next Monday, and if the building is found to be unsafe other quarters will be secured for the classes until the building can be repaired or a new one erected. The suspension has crippled the city schools considerably, as 325 pupils and eight teachers are affected. The Roberts school building is a three story brick structure, including the base ment. and has stood for many years. It is contended by some that It is in no more dangerous condition than It has been for years, and many contend that it is absolutely safe, while many others are very much alarmed and it is very improb able that the patrons of the school would allow their children to return to school with the building in the present condi tion. There is considerable discussion on the streets today of a proposition to float bonds for the erection of a new school building, and it is possible that the mat ter will be discussed In the meeting of the city council tomorrow night. Tlie proposition seems to meet with popular favor and it is believed that some active steps will be taken at once looking to the erection of a new building. City Council to Meet. The city council of Bessemer will meet In regular session tomorrow night and it promises to be one of the most important sessions that has been held during the present administration. A number of Important matters are ex pected to be sprung before the council and it is possible that a large bond issue for school building purposes and for pav ing certain streets of the city will he discussed. The dangerous condition of the Roberts school building has opened the discussion for a new building and it is very probable that the matter will be fully discussed by the council tomorrow night. Another matter that will very likely en gage the attention of the city fathers will be the franchise recently granted the Bir mingham Railway, Light and Power com pany for the construction of a car line to Jonesboro. It is understood that the railway company Is dissatisfied with cer tain provisions of the franchise and has asked that the ordinance be reconsidered and amended. It Is stated that the pro posed road will not be built under the present provisions of the franchise which restricts the granting of transfers from the new line to other connecting lines of the same company. Complaints of certain individuals against items In the new license schedule will also he heard and possibly acted upon. A committee of members from the Bes semer board of trade will appear before the council tomorrow night with a peti tion asking that bona fide Industrial plants seeking location in the district be exempted from taxes for a term of ten years. This matter was discussed at length by the members of the board of trade at the meeting last week and a resolution was adopted favoring the plan and the fol lowing committee was appointed to call upon the mayor and council In the Inter est of the proposition: \V. J. Long. J. T. McEnlry, William T. Kennedy and J. J. Sullivan. President George W. Steven son of the board of trade was also added to the committee. It is believed that the adoption of this plan would help to secure a number of the smaller Industries that are constant ly being located in the Birmingham dis trict and would attract others that would conic under proper conditions. Notes and Personals. Dr. L. A. Spencer, who was thrown from his buggy and seriously Injured last night, is not resting very well. He was in fact more seriously Injured than was at first thought. The Jonesboro public school opened this morning with a full attendance of pupils and all the teachers present. Professor Morris, who was elected principal last week to succeed Professor Harrison, re signed, is in charge. The school has been closed for about a month. The Rev. and Mrs. R. C.
