CURSE OF BIRMINGHAM. Citizen Discusses the Matter of Fire Arms. To the IDditor of The Age-Herald. As a citizen of the Magic City I am vitally Interested In all that tends to the advancement of a city whose future is by far the brightest of any of the prospering south. Though Birmingham Is making strides In material advancement and Is now known as the most solidly progressive city of those which are sought by north ern capital, yet there Is a growing repu tation we are making that brands us as a poor place lor raising families; an un safe place where the annals of crime are fostered and murder losing Its horror. Some newspapers, to feed the morbid taste of their readers make prominent the murders and suicides of our city, and , these items are copied by the press of the country, advertising us as a lawless com munity. Should the cause of tms state of af fairs he arrived at, there would be some further restraint placed on the sale of intoxicants, I would think, but perhaps the greatest evil is the almost universal use of small firearms and war-like imple ments by desperate characters. One is impressed on arriving in our city with the window displays of our hardware stores and pawnshops. Pistols, billies, brass knucks, dirks and stlllettoes are to be seen on every hand, together with dice and gaming devices. True it is that the law says these “con cealed weapons” are against the law, but how can it be possible to suppress by "local applications” a disease fed from “internal causes.” Jn Tennessee and other sister states a law prohibiting the sale of such weapons keeps many a hot-headed Individual from killing his neighbor on the spur of the moment. A despondent youth has few opportunities of securing an Instrument io blow out his brains. Pistols are not household necessities, that accidentally rob families of loved ones by the hands of loved ones; and he who sleeps with a revolver under his pillow Is considered more or less of a desperado. Is It a good law that licenses the sale of an implement which It forbids to be used? If it is for house protection such tools are sold, then pass a law making it a felony to sell the smaller sizes of weapon for pocket use, the brass knucks, etc. Booking at the report publish aj by The Age-Herald of the violent deaths occurring Ir. Birmingham last year, one would certainly be struck by the large per cent cf persons meeting death by means of “gun-shot wounds.” The per cent of deaths by this means Is appalling and shows too conclusively the self-in flicted Injury we are allowing by lack of sufficient laws to guard our citizens. E. E. WHEELER. Birmingham, February 23, 1906. Confederate History. To the Editor of The Age-Herald. This statement was made In a recent number of your valuable paper: “But one member of the Confederate Congress,” said Capt. J. Lawler Darby yesterday, “is living. He is William T. Tibbs of Murray county, Georgia. Ho lives on a farm three miles from Spring Place, the county seat of Murray, “He is now in his ninetieth year, but he Is well preserved, mentally vigorous and quite active physically. “He was elected to the Confederate Congress from Tennessee, defeating Judge A. S. Colyar. He served but one term in Congress, because he considered it his duty to go to the front in the army, which lie did. He shouldered his gun and Judge Colyar .was elected to succeed him, but he lives today the sole survivor of the Congress of the Confederacy.” The gallant captain forgot or overlook ed the Hon. Henry C. Jones' of Lauder dale county, who as a delegate to the convention of 1861, voted against the or dinance of secession and refused to sign it. Though he was consistently and un alterably opposed to that action, yet when the step was taken, and the state was thereby plunged Into a desperate war. he did his duty to his people, who elected him to the Confederate Congress, where he served them faithfully and well. For many years after the close of tin* Confederate war he was the solicitor for the Eighth judicial circuit, and prosecuted the “pleas of the state” with signal abili ty and to the great terror of evil doers. He is represented in our city by a son— Dr. Robert T. Jones, and in Florence by another son—the great lawyer George Jones. May his declining years he spent in “peace and Joy,” for he is indeed one of Alabama's noblement. Yours truly. SAM WILL JOHN. Birmingham, February 24. 1906. Committee Meeting In Bullock.

MR. HEARST’S STILL HUNT IN NEW YORK (Continued from First Page) of the still hunt being made in behalf of Mr. HearBt. His agents have turned to good account the strife in botli the democratic and republican parties. Up state democrats who are disgusted with the present situation and are looking for a new leader, have been won over by tlie score, but whether they will stick to Hearst when the hue and cry that his candidacy will surely raise, arrives Is doubtful. In the republican party are the Odell discontents who are lined up with Hearst and also many independent voters who desire a change of administra tion on account of the insurance scandals. This fact is giving the reform element of the party, which Is in the ascendancy at present, serious concern. The first open step In the campaign will be taken at Albany on March 1 when a convention of municipal owner ship leagues will be held. A state com mittee will be formed, which will issue j a call for a state convention. At this | convention Mr. Hearst will he nominated i for governor. Then he will be In a posi- j tion to use a club on the democratic party | and force it to nominate him also or I run the risk of defeat. Both Parties Alarmed. treading democrats say that if Hearst is nominated that there will be a bolt j from him that will insure the continu ance* of the republicans in power. On | the other hand shrewd republican poll-1 ticians are saying that if the democrats nominate Hearst he will take •enough votes away from the republican party to defeat it. So both sides are watching his campaign with fear. Conservative democrats are particularly anxious be cause they are loath to Bee their party forfeit another chance to capture the state by a blunder. They believe that with the proper man and with the re publican machine disorganized as It Is they could win. New York could have elected a democratic governor in 1898 despite the war record of Theodore Roosevelt had it not been for the blun dering of Richard Croker, who managed the campaign. He nominated Augustus Van Wyck in the face of the fact that Judge Daly was the choice of the party and this, coupled, with his own person ality, which was made an issue in the campaign, brought defeat. In 1902 the democrats could have won but for the fact that David B. Hill chose that time to wreak vengeance on some of the up state leaders who were his enemies. Not His First Experience. This is not Mr. Hearst’s first experi ence in office seeking. He has been at it for ten years. He was in a receptive mood for the democratic nomination for governor in 189*» and he hoped for it again in 189-8. He sought the democratic nomination for vice president in 1900 and . also in the same year tried to get the nomination for governor. It was in this year that he succeeded in getting a nom ination for Congress from Tammany and was elected. He hopes in his present campaign to get some strength from Tammany because of the dissatisfaction in the wigwam over tne way Mayor McClellan has turned the organization down in the matter of appointments, j There have been reports that since Lead er Charles F. Murphy lias broken with Mr. McClellan he may support Hearst for the democratic nomination, but it 19 not likely that they have any founda tion. Mr. Hearst’s campaign for President with his army of salaried agents and his campaign for mayor are still fresh in the public mind. Now he is again seeking a nomination for governor of the state with the purpose in view of running for President In 1908. STRANGE COINCIDENCE. Second Fire Alarm Came at a Rather Unusual Time. Through a strange coincidence, the sec ond alarm of fire that Chief A. V. Bennett ^ of the fire department responded to oc- ; curred exactly forty-eight hours after he l had been appointed to his new office. The first alarm was turned in exactly ! twenty-four hours after he had received his commission. A spark from a chimney caused a flro on the roof of the residence occupied by John Farmer, at Fifth avenue and Twen ty-third street shortly after 8 o’clock yes terday morning. The blaze was extin guished with small loss. Mrs. Bessie Harwell Motley Dead. Opelika. February 24.—(Special.)—Mrs. Bessie Harwell Motley, wife of Howard Motley, passed away at 1:30 p. m., today at her home on Geneva street, after a short illness of acute heart trouble, caused by Bright’s disease. The deceased was the third daughter of W. O. Har well, one of the wealthiest and most prominent men of this city. She was married to Mr. Motley of the firm of Lowe & Motley, about one year ago. DEMOCRATS ARE JUBILANT II OVER TURN OF EVENTS (Continued from First Page) after considerable discussion of the ad visability of selecting some one else for the service. The first Intention was to confer the honor upon Senator Cullom as the oldest member of the committee, but when he cast his fortunes with the advo cates of the straight Hepburn-Dolllver bill, the majority of the republicans man ifested an inclination to drop him, and Senator Elkins, chairman of the com mittee. was suggested. Senator Clapp then made the point that a supporter of the bill should be chosen to report it to the Senate and take charge of it there. Senator Aldrich, representing the five republican opponents of the measure, immediately fell In with this suggestion and said that he thought Mr. Tillma* should assume the duty as the senior democratic member of the committee. Mr. Clap nominated Senator Dolllven but Senator Tillman was chosen. Aldrich Is Satisfied. Speaking today of Mr. Tillman's selec tion, Senator Aldrich expressed great sat isfaction. saying that under the circum stances It was the wisest and best that could be made. He voiced the general sentiment about the Senate In expressing the opinion that the South Carolina sena tor would have no difficulty In rising to the requirements of the occasion. His selection, however, was anomalous in that he has frequently expressed himself in vigorous language as opposed to the bill until amended as bad most, If not all, of bis democratic colleagues on the com mittee. Nor does he make any secret now of his opinion that the hill should be amended. Already there is much discussion on this subject of amendments, and it was made evident today that the scene of activity in behalf of a modification in favor of a court review provision had been transfer red from the committee room to the floor of the Senate. It is the belief that with such an amend ment the bill will secure practically all of the republican votes, and the claim will be made that a majority of the re publican senators would stand for such a change. Commenting on the bill today, Senator Tillman said: Senator Tillman Comments. "The first thing to do is to discover and incoporate in the bill the amend ments necessary to perfect it. There was no opportunity in the House of Represen tatives to amend the bill, and there are two very essential amendments needed to make the law at all adequate. "One Is the strongest possible prohi bition of the ownership and control by public carrier# of the articles to be ship ped over their lines to the exclusion of private owners. In other words, the rail roads have a tendency to deal In some of the commodities that It was supposed they would only handle In the capacity of car riers. This applies particularly to the coal THE VALUE OF CHARCOAL. Few People Know How Useful It Is In Preserving Health and Beauty. Nearly everybody knows that charcoal Is the safest and most efficient disinfect ant and purifier in nature, but few realise Its value when taken Into the human system for the same cleansing purpose. Charcoal Is a remedy that the more you take of It the better: it Is not a drug at all, but simply absorbs the gases and Impurities always present In the stomach and Intestines and carries them out of the system. Charcoal sweetens the breath after smoking, drinking or after eating onions and other odorous vegetables. Charcoal effectually clears and improves the complexion, It whitens the teeth and further acts as a natural and eminently safe cathartic. It absorbs the Injurious gases which collect In the stomach and bowels; It disinfects the mouth and throat from the poison of catarrh. All druggists sell charcoal In one form or another, but probably the best char coal and the most for the money, Is In Stuart’s Charcoal Lozenges: they are composed of the finest powdered Willow charcoal, and other harmless antiseptics In tablet form or rather In the form of large, pleasant tastiig lozenges, the charcoal being mixed with honey. The daily use of these lozenges will soon tell in a much Improved condition of the general health, better complexion, sweeter breath and purer blood, and the beauty of It is. that no possible harm can result from their continued use, but on the contrary, grpat benefit. A Buffalo physician in speaking of the benefits of charcoal says: “I advise Stu art’s Charcoal Lozenges to all patients Buffering from gas In stomach and bowels and to clear the complexion, and purify the breath, mouth and throat; I also be lieve the liver is greatly benefltted by the dally use of them; they cost but twenty-five cents a box at drug stores, and although in some sense a patent preparation, yet I believe I get more and better charcoal In Stuart’s Charcoal Los enges than In any of the ordinary char* coal tablet*.'* Rear-Admiral Hichborn Praises Pe-ru-na. ^ WUttAMHRAL mCNBORN. J [ ADMIRAL’S WORD’S CARRY WEIGHT. | REAR ADMIRAL, HIGHBORN is one of the best known admirals of our navy. His statement concerning Peruna will have much weight as it goes out Into the world. What he says Is echoed by many other naval officers of high standing. i WHAT THE ADMIRAL SAYS. | Philip Hlchborn, Rear-Admiral United States Navy, writes from Washington. D. C., as follows: "After the use of Peruna for a short period, I can now cheerfully recommend your valuable remedy to any one who Is in need of an invigorating tonic.”—Philip Hlchborn. I ANJE V E R PRE8ENT FOE. [ The soldier and the sailor are especially subject to ca tarrh In some form or phase. Exposed as they are to constant changes, subject as they are to various vicissitudes, and all kinds of climate, wet and dry, night and day, they find catarrh to be their most insidious and everpresent foe. In the barracks and on the Held, Peruna is equally effi cacious. Taken at once after exposure, it should prevent catching cold. | PE-RU-NA A RELIABLE REMEDY. | After a cold has become established, Peruna will break it up as quickly as any other remedy known. Even after a cold has become settled in some organ of the body, Peruna can be relied upon to promptly dispel It. Peruna will relieve catarrh, whether acute or chronic, but a few doses taken In the first stages of the disease will be more effective than when the disease has become chronic. If you suffer from catarrh in any form, do not neglect it. Take Peruna at once. Delays in such matters are dan gerous. f CHRONIC CATARRH OF THROAT. | "I was troubled with catarrh of the throat particularly, and suffered considerably as a result thereof for a period of about five years, and my general health was affected. rsOUGHT chXnge OF CLIMATE.

X continued the use of it for about live weeks, at the end of which time I returned to New York, both well and happy."—Wm. H. Switzer, 325 E. 83rd street, New York City. | USED PE-RU-NA IN HIS FAMILY. | “I have used Peruna In my family with very satisfactory results for the last two years. Besides I have recommended It to all whom I think are in need of it. "I urge all who are afflicted to buy a bottle and begin its use at once. I have never heard of any who have used it to be dissatisfied with the results.”—Frank W. Harris, jx 23, Basic City, Va.. member A. F. & A. M. | A TYPICAL TESTIMONIAU | Mr. J. H. Galbraith, 390 West Seconds Ave., Columbus, Ohio, writes: ”1 have been a sufferer of catarrh of the stomach and kidneys for seven years. Doctors did me no good, and after taking Peruna for six months, at Intervals, I believe T am cured. My appetite returned, I sleep well and work every day. I always have it in the house.” No remedy ever yet devised has received such unstinted eulogy from so many renowned statesmen and military men as Peruna.

They also should be required lo make connections with spur lines or con tributory lines, and supply them with cars and not block them. "The question of adding to the provision now in the bill for Judicial review of the findings of the Interstate commerce com mission should be approached very cau tiously. In the first place a decision of the commission has the same standing as an act of Congress. No court would under take to nullify an act of Congress pend ing an appeal unless it should take a high handed course. I can see no reason why a decision of the commission should he retired pending an appeal In the courts. Any proposition to set aside such a de cision pending action by the courts will receive the strongest opposition I can give it for one. No one seeks and cer tainly I do not. to deny the railroads the light to appeal to thp courts. If a rate is established that threatens the confiso cation of their property of course they will have a right to go into the courts for protection. Commission Can Be Trusted. "But for one I am not inclined to ac cord to the members of the Interstate commerce commission any less patriotism or good Judgment than Is accorded the Judges on the bench. They in both in stances are appointed by the President and confirmed by the Senate, and I think one can be trusted as well as the other. I do not fear that this com mission ts going to establish rates that will he confiscatory, and 1 think we will be able to trust the commission.” When asked if his relation toward the hill would probably lead to frequent con ferences with the President, the Senator meditated a moment and replied: “The President's views are well under stood. The newspapers have not spared any opportunity to announce what they suppose have been his views on this sub ject. Therefore there Is no further need for anybody to get his views, and ho ‘has been very free to communicate his views to Congress whenever he has seen fit to do so." "Do you take the view that this rail road legislation Is a democratic meas ure, now that it has been reported by a majority of democrats on the commit tee. and by a democratic senator?"

Mr. Dolllver manifested no chugrin over the selection of Mr. Tillman as the floor manager of the bill.

Several members of the Senate and House, who are particularly Interested In rate legislation, had talks with the Presi dent today. Senators Dolliver and Clapp of the Senate Interstate commerce com mittee and Speaker Cannon and Repre sentative Hepburn discussed briefly the situation with the President. “There Is no gloom around here,” re marked Senator Dolliver as hf* was leav ing the executive offices. “The Presi dent is greatly pleased and offers no criticism. Yes, I believe the bill will puss the Senate, perhaps without amend ment.

He told me ten days ago that he regarded Tillman as a game fighter and an honest#man.” Representative Hepburn would not dis cuss the rate situation, but indicated the President was gratified that the pending measure should have been reported fa vorably. When an expression was sought from Speaker Cannon he fenced cleverly. “Like Paul of old,” he remarked, “I let these things move me not.” Representative Townsend of Michigan, who has been identified with rate legisla tion from the inception of the proposition, said after talking to the President: "The President is happy.
