O'SULLIVAN IS DEAD FROM HIS INJURIES AFTER HIS FALL THURSDAY NIGHT FROM POWDERLY CAR HE hjEVER REGAINED CON SCIOUSNESS. W. R. O’Sullivan, the young man who was' (njured while alighting from a Powderly car at Elyton cemetery last Thursday night, died yesterday morning at 9:30 o'clock without ever having re gained consciousness. At the timo of the accident the car was moving rather rapidly, and when Mr. O’Sullivan attempted to alight he fell, striking his head on the ground. He was hurried to St. Vincent’s hospital, where examination showed that his skull had been fractured. Dr. J. M. Mason and Dr. Cunningham Wilson did every thing possible to restore consciousness and bring about recovery. They tre panned the skull but the brain had been too deeply affected, and the injured maji never aroused to a realization of his con dition. Mr. O’Sullivan had come to Birming ham the same day to meet his wife and child, who w'ere coming in on the fol lowing day from St. Louis. He was in tending to spend the night with his sis ter, Mrs. W. D. Bankston, and was al most at his destination when he fell from the car. The deceased was 25 years of nge and a well-known cotton broker of Union town. He was at one time located In Birmingham. He is spoken of as a man of model character and kindly dis position. He was a member of several secret orders. In addition to the rel atives above mentioned he is survived by two brothers, one of whom lives in Denver. The remains will be sent to Unlontown this morning by Shaw & Son, who have charge of the funeral arrangements. Pastmaster^H. C. Miller of Temple lodge No. 636, A. F. A A. M., will attend the funeral as the representative of the local Masons. The funeral will be yield when the brother who lives in Denver arrives— either this afternoon or tomorrow.

MIN FACTOR IN COTTON REPOSTS It Has Been Excessive in Most Cotton States HOT SUNSHINE IS NEEDED North Alabama Bottom Lands Have Suffered Especially From the Heavy Rainfall of the Past Week. Memphis. July 22.—The Commercial-Ap peal’s weekly summary of crop condi tions covering the central states of the cotton belt Is as follows: By reason of the rains which have been excessive and continuous throughout the week, the reports are less uniform than heretofore. In some'sections considerable damage has been done by the heavy pre cipitation. This is specially true of the bottom lands of north Alabama, and in parts of Mississippi and Arkansas, where some actual overflow took place. On other bottom lands the lack of easy drainage has brought on some signs of blight. Over a very large section of the four states of Alabama. Mississippi. Arkansas and Tennessee, however, the rainfall was of the greatest benefit, even though contin ued longer than was necessary. The plant through the area reported upon hns made a rapid growth, being favored by the moist, hot weather, but most correspondents note at the same time that the plant is fruiting well also, : and that it is most healthy in appear ance. Some anticipatory fears have been aroused by reason of the excess of rain, but the actual damage reported is small. In many sections cultivation has been about completed, though no great pro gress In this respect was made during the week. In other sections the grass is be ginning to attract some notice. It is gen erally stated that a few bright, dry days will allow the completion of cultivation, but in some sections the size attained by the plant and t’lje prevalence of bolls has rendered any further cultivation undesir able. The absence of any general tendency to rust, blight or shedding is notable. Excessive Rain In Mississippi Basin. New Orleans, July 22.—Reports from Picayune correspondence In Louisiana and Mississippi on weather and crop condi tions in those states for the week ending Saturday, July 21. indicate a phenomenal rainfall, entirely too much for the propa gation of the cotton plant. While a few sections report damage from this source, general indications are that if August be a dry month the crop will he well above the average in spite of present conditions. On the other hand, should rains continue to any great extent, the damage will range from 10 to 25 per cent. The crop is safe as a general rule, although the deli cate forms and blossoms cannot stand the strain of daily downpours much longer. The continued showers would make the plant throw off considerable forms. The week was generally unsatisfactory in Louisiana. Cotton is rank with weeds and grass, weather not permitting farm ers to keep up with their field work. Winn parish reports some lice and rust, with a damage of 10 per cent in the four days. Morehouse parish records black heart and shedding, with the presence of boll worms. In Lincoln parish rust and rotting has done slight damage in some sections, with the stalk growing out of all proportions to the amount of fruit. St. Landry parish reports that four days of suriny weather would restore the plant to Its normal con dition, while the reverse would leave 25 per cent loss. Mississippi fared better during t'he week, the rainfall in the greater portion being in keeping with the needs of cotton. How ever, in the lowla.ndrf shedding and dam age by sharpshooters was noted, due to the excessive moisture and humid atmos phere. Warm Weather Needed In Georgia. Atlanta. July 22.—Reports from all parts of Georgia to the Constitution Indicate that rains have been general and exces sive for the greater part nf the past week, further damaging the cotton crop, which has already suffered so much In this re spect. Warm, dry weather Is needed now, and when the rains cease it will be difficult to keep down the grass. Tt Is generally con ceded that the yield will be materially re duced by the unfavorable season up to date. While cotton has suffered from the rains Teports indicate that corn and potatoes have flourished under the conditions which prevailed and bountiful crops are pre dicted. CALL TO ARMS SOUNDED BY LABOR LEADERS (Continued from First Page) have been Indifferent or hostile to the rights of man. They have had no time and as little inclination to support the reason able labor measures, tile enactment of which we have urged, and which con tained beneflcient features for all our peo ple without an obnoxious provision to any one. “Patience ceased to be a virtue, and on March 21, 190®, the representatives of lnbor presented a bill of grievances to the President and those responsible for legis lation or the failure of legislation in Con gress, reciting the failure or refusal of the party in power to adopt or enforce legislation In the interests of the toiling millions of our country. After sotting forth labor’s grievances and requests and urging early action, we closed that now famous document with this statement: " ‘But If perchance you may not heed us, we shall appeal to the conscience and support of our fellow-citizens.’ Relief is Not Granted. “The relief asked for has not been granted. Congress lias turned a deaf ear to the voices of the masses of our peo ple; and, true to our declaration, we now appeal to the working people, aye, to all the American people unitedly to demonstrate their determination that this republic of ours shall continue 'to be of, for by the people, rather than of, for and by the almighty dollar. “The toiling masses of our country are as much, if not more interested in good government than our fellow citi zens in other walks of life. In line with the contention herein stated, the Ameri can Federation of Labor hiade Its declara tion of political policy as already quoted above. And In line therewith wfe hope and have the right to expect, to arouse the citizenship of our common country, interested In good government, to the apathy or hostility of the party in power to the real interests of the people, so that men more honest, faithful and pro gressive may be elected as the people's representatives. “Attention is called not only to con gressional and legislative indifference and hostility to the interests of labor, but also to the interests of the large niat-s of all our people. The press for months has been burdened with exposures of the corruption and graft in high circles. The great insurance companies, the trusts, the corporations, the so-called captains of industry, have indeed become the own ers of the legislators of our country. Pub lic officials, many of whom have the cry of ‘8top thief!’ nearest the tip of the tongue, have been elected through these very agencies and the contributions from them. Dollar Sets Principle Aside. “If it has come to a condition in this, earth, that the almighty dollar is to be earth, hat the almighty dollar is to be worshipped to an extent of forgetting principle, conscience, uprightness and Justice, the time has arrived for labor and Its friends to raise their voices in condemnation of such degeneracy, and to invite all reform forces to join with it in relegating indifference to the peo ple's Interests, corruption and graft td political oblivion; to raise the standard of legislation by the election of sincere, progressive and honest men who, while worshipping money less, will honor con -eclence, justice and humanity more. "We recommend that centraPbodiea and local unions proceed without delay by the election of delegates to meet In confer ence, or convention to formulate plana to further the interests of this move ment, and in accordance with the plan herein outlined at the proper time and in the proper manner nominate candidates who will unquestionably eland for the enactment Into law of labor and progres sive measures. “The first concern of all should be the positive defeat of those wfho have been hostile or indifferent to the just demands of labor. A stinging rebuke to them will benefit tiot only the toilers but the peo ple of the entire country. “Wherever both parties Ignore labor’s legislative demands a straight labor can- i didate should be nominated, so that hon- ! est men may have the opportunity in exercising their franchise to vote accord ing to th^ conscience Instead of being compelled either to refrain from voting or to vote for the candidate -and the party they must in their Innermost souls de spise. Support Labor’s Friend. “Where a congressman or state legisla- I tor has proven himself a true friend to the j rights of labor he should be supported and no candidate nominated against him. “This movement must not degenerate into a scramble for office. It should be t» determined effort, free, absolutely, from partisanship of every name and character, to secure the legislation we deem neces sary and essential to the welfare and I happiness of all our people. As the pres- i ent objects of this movement are purely in the line of legislation, all efforts should be concentrated upon the election of mem- : bers of Congress and the various state legislatures. “To make this—our movement—the most effective the utmost care shauld be taken to nominate only such union men whoso known intelligence, honesty and faithful ness are conspicuous. They should bo nominated as straight labor representa ilves and stand and be supported as such by union men and their friends and sym pathizers, irrespective of previous politi cal affiliation. “Whenever It Is apparent that an entire ly Independent labor candidate cannot be elected, efforts should be made to secure such support by Indorsement of candidates by the minority party in the districts and by such other progressive elements as will Insure the election of labor representa tives. “All observers agree that the campaign of our fellow workmen of Great Britain has had a wholesome effect upon the government, as well as the interests of Its wage-earners, and the people generally of that country. In the last British elec tions fifty-four trade unionists were elect ed to parliament. If the British workmen with their limited franchise, accomplish ed so much by their united action, what ; may we in the United States not do with universal suffrage? Labor Committee Named. "In order to systematically oarry out the policy and work necessary to this campaign, the executive council of the American Federation of Labor has select ed the following members as tho 'Labor Representative Committee:’ Samuel Gnmpers, James O'Connell. Frank Mor rison. "Those earnestly engaged In our move ment must, we repeat, be guided by tho fact that the principles for which we stand must be of primary consideration, and office, secondary. We ask our fellow workers and friends to respond to this call and to make of it a popular uprising of honest men, and to see to it that the best, most conscientious men of labor or their supporters are chosen as their rep resentatives. "Reports and returns should be made to tho headquarters of the labor repre sentation committee (which will he lo cated in the offices of the American Fed eration of Labor), who will give the best possible information and advice on uni form procedure. "Whatever vantage ground or Improved conditions have come to the workers of our country were not brought to them on sliver platters; they are the result of their better organization and tHeir higher Intelligence; of the sacrifices they have made and the Industrial battle-scars of many contests. Tho progress of the tollers has not been due to kindness or consideration at the hands of the pow ers that be. but achieved In spite of the combined hitter hostility of menda cious greed, corporate corruption, legis lative antagonism and judicial usurpa tion. "Labor men of America, assert your rights! and in addition to strengthening your faith and loyalty to your organiza tion on the economic field, exercise your full rights of citizenship in the use of your ballot. Elect honest men to Con gress and to other halls of legislation, and by so doing you will more complete ly and fully carry out your obligations as union men. and more than ever merit the respect of your fellow citizens. "I>abor demands a distinctive and larger share 1n the governmental affairs of our country; it demands justice; It will be satisfied with nothing less. Fra ternally yours, "SAMUEL GOMPERS. President.

DOUMA HOLDSFIRST FINLAND MEETING Two Hundred Members Are Assembled at Viborg SOCIALISTS ARECOMBATIVE Meeting is Called to Order in Dining Room in Striking Contrast to Brilliant Hall in Tauride Palace, St. Petersburg, July 33 , 3:20 a. m.—The following dispatch has been received from a representative of the Associated Press who accompanied the members of parliament to Viborg. It is dated Viborg, I midnight: “Two hundred members of Russia’s out- j Taw parliament are gathered here at the Hotel Belvedere awaiting the arrival of Count iHeydon, M. Stekovitcli and oth er prominent members of the right be- i fore opening the session at which will be j adopted .a manifesto that the people be summoned, and that they stand by the dispersed assembly, members of all shades of opinion, especially the constitutional democrats, group of toil and social dem ocrats. Present among the members here are M. Moroumtseff, president of the house; Prince Peter Dolgourokoff and Professor Q-rodeskull, its vice presidents and other officers. Meeting In Dining Room. “The meeting will be called to orher as a regular session of parliament. The dining room of the hotel where the mem bers are assembled is in great contrast to the imposing surroundings of Tauride palace. It is crowded to suffocation with excited and perspiring deputies, who are gathered according to party affiliations, and informally caucussing and debating tactics and discussion the text of their appeal for which a general drafting com mission is now being chosen. “There is a strong possibility that all parties will come to nn agreement on the appeal as the radicals are not disposed to insist on an over-violent manifesto de manding the immediate summoning of a constituent assembly by revolutionary means to which the constitutional demo crats object. Downcast Over Dessolation. “The constitutional democrats appear to be downcast over the dissolution of Par liament, but the members of the group of toil, and the socialists, are in an ex ceedingly combative mood. “The corridors of the hotel with the members of Parliament. Among these latter are a number of members of the council of the empire. “A crow'd gathered In the adjoining streets, but there wras no demonstration.” The correspondent telephoned at 3 o’clock this morning that the session had adjourned until 8 o’clock. No definite ac tion was decided upon but it was resolved in principle to adopt an address to the people that the time for action had come, in view of the unconstitutional procedure of the government, but appealing to them not to resort to measure which would entail bloodshed. ARTILLERY BOYS LEAVE FOR MOBILE BATTERY D WENT OUT LAST NIGHT TO STAY A WEEK—WILL HAVE COMPETITIVE DRILL DUR ING ENCAMPMENT. The Brandon Light Artillery left the city last night over the Southern railway for Mobile, where they will go Into camp to day. A special car was attached to the train leaving here at 10:35 so that the boys might have plenty of room. The official title of the Birmingham bat tery Is Battery D. They will be Joined by three other batteries as follows: Bat tery A, Mobile; Battery B, Montgomery; Battery C, Selma; with a total of about 250 officers and men. The enrollment of the local battery Is about fifty, practically all of whom were in the ranks when the time for leaving came. Capt. J. Q. Smith Is In command with L. 8. Dorrance and J. D. Carlyslo as first and second lieutenants, respect ively. The other officers are first ser geant, Hooper; quartermaster sergeant, J. R. Upshaw; guide-on sergeant, E. N.

The encampment will last until tlie 80th of this month, anil the time will be devoted to drilling with field pieces and target practices. The efficiency of the gunners will he tested with 2-lnch guns, while the whole battalion will have pis tol target practice. A medal will be of fered for the best Individual shot, and a cup for the best drilled battery. The local boys won the cup ofTered at the last encampment, and seem to feel pretty confident of their ability to get this one also. Sergeant Gafford left here Saturday with four men, and when the train bear ing the rest of the battery reaches there this morning, they will have gotten the tents up and everything In readiness for the boys to go Into camp. COMING TO CLEVELND. John D. Rockefeller Will Spend Latter Part of Summer at Home. Cleveland. July 22.—Unless his present plans are changed John D. Rockefeller Is coming to Cleveland to spend the lat ter part of the summer. Accompanied by his physician, Dr. Blggar, Rockefeller is expected to arrive in Cleveland some time Saturday, July 28. • The announcement Is definitely made that he will return to Ohio at the end of this wreok and take up his usual resi dence here for the summer season. PERSONAL. Mrs. Oliver Chalifoux, who has been quite ill with pneumonia, was much im proved yesterday and is now on the way to rapid recovery. F. G. Nichols, who for some time has been day clerk at the Hotel Morris, has resigned his position and after a month's rest will take charge of the hotel at Dade ville, Ala. Miss Dorothea Orr lias returned to the city from her summer home at Mintone, Ala. She will be with Miss Helen Reed until August 1. when she will go to a house party in Northern Tennessee. Mis* Annie Rosenthal of Portsmouth. Va., is visiting her uncle and aunt, Mr. and Mrs. M. Wolowitz, on Eighth ave nue. Miss Rosenthal will remain here to act as maid of honor to her cousin, Miss Fannie Wolowitz. whose marriage to Mr. Max Robinson takes place on the evening of August 15. FIRST BLOODSHED I ALREADY AT RAND Cavalry Forced to Make Somej Charges in Capitol ANOTHER CALL BY CZAR Troops' are Forced to Fire Several Volleys In the Vicinity of the Neva Gate, Where Rioters Were Worst. St. Petersburg. July 22.—An imperial manifesto Issued tonight which is re garded both as a threat and an appeal to the Emperor’s millions of mujiks to join in suppressing the revolution, under prom ise of land, summons "the faithful sons of holy Russia." Many liberals consider this a direct in citement ^f the Black Hundreds. In spite of the excitement the day pass ed with comparative quiet in the capital and street rioting only began with the advent of darkness, hut the collisions gen erally were on a small scale. Had Police on the Run. At Sandovia, crowds with stones had the gendarmes and police on the run, w'hen a squadron of Cossacks came to the rescue and charged and dispersed them with their whips. About midnight there were rumors of heavy' fighting at the Neva gate where the massacre of the followers of Father Gapon took place eighteen months ago. The troops there are said to have fired several volleys and it is reported there were a number of casualties. Tonight stories were industriously spread that the Emperor's final decision to dissolve parliament was not taken un til he had communicated with Berlin. According to one story', a member of | the German embassy went to the tele graph office Saturday night and engaged I a wire for direct communication with Em peror William and only after receiving j and transmitting a 1000 word dispatch from Emperor William to Emperor Nich olas was the uk-aso finally signed. The inference intended to be drawn is that Emperor William Is Emperor Nicholas’ evil genius and false adviser. The trouble with the story 1s that the sovereigns w'ould not he forced to resort to such roundabout methods of communi cation. as direct wires are available to Peterhof. Besides, the story is traceable to sources which usunlly seek to make Emperor William responsible for all of Europe’s ills. Status of Council In Doubt. The status of the council of the empire seems to be In doubt. Neither the ukase or the manifesto mentions It, but wheth er this was by design or oversight has not yet been cleared up. As a co-ordinate branch of Parliament, it must be ad- : journed or dissolved when the lower house Is prorogued, bbut it remains to he seen whether new elections will be or dered for the upper chamber. Number Cut By Cavalry. Other collisions took place late tonight in Nlcholaevsky and Pushkin streets. At the Seminovskyr barracks a crowd gath ered and broke the windows with a show er of stones, whereupon a detachment of cavalry appeared and dispersed t'he crowd with their swords. A number of persons were badly cut. There was no demonstra tion at the Taurlde palace, which was in possession of the military. No one was al lowed to enter the building. Upon a column in front of the building the ukase dissolving Parliament was post ed during the day’. It is understood a search of the building was made In the belief that it was mined and ready to he blown up at 1 o’clock Monday morning. The Associated Press learns definitely that it Is t'he plan of members of Parlia ment to assemble at Viborg. MEMPHIS CROWDS VISIT REAL CITY OVER A THOUSAND EXCURSION ISTS yesterday SPENT BUSY DAY VIEWING SKYSCRAPERS AND OTHER STRANGE SIGHTS. Two Frisco excursion trains bringing 1019 passengers, white and black, arrived here from Memphis yesterday. The first section reached Birmingham at 8:05 in the morning and returned to Memphis last night at 10:30, The second section having been delayed by a broken engin^ was delayed and did not roll into the shed until 6:30 yesterday afternoon. It la scheduled,Ho leave for Memphis tod-ay at 1 p. m. The excursionists unaccustomed to the crush of the city added to the anima tion about the passenger station last night with their lunch baskets and crying babies. Many of them availed themselves of the c-hance. when they heard that one | train would take them back today, to spend the night in Birmingham. The Brown-Marx building was viewed with wonder by some of these natives of Mem phis. They gazed at it long to accustom their eyes to its dizzy heights and others busied themselves with other sights of Birming ham. When seen lost night many wore green glasses to protect their eyes from the glare of the electric light*. ROOT IS SOAKED BY THE ROUGH SEA CHARLESTON IS COALING ON BRAZIL COAST AND ROUGH WEATHER WILL CAUSE SOME DELAY IN THE TRIP. Pernambuco, Brazil, July 22.—The United States cruiser Charleston, bearing Secre tary Root to the Pan-American congress at Rio Jeneiro, which arrived here July ! 20. lies anchored out In the roadstead. The ! sea is rough and the secretary was the ! only member of his party to come as hors in the launch today. He was thoroughly soaked before he reached the landing. Mr. I toot received a popular ovation. His speech made to a large assemblage was helpful to the friendship between the United States and Brazil. Mr. Root made a comparison between the United States and Brazil, also a com parison of the histories of the two coun tries, referring to the struggles of each with Indians and enemies from the old world. The coaling of the Charleston has been proceeding slowly on account of the roughness of the weather. The cruiser will leav« here for Bahia, where she will make a short stop, and thence go to Rio Janeiro, where she is due about July 2*. Try the Gawk for half-tone and lint Illustrations.

A negro giving his name as Tom Dooley was struck last night about 10:30 by a North Ensley car and was badly shaken up. It seems that the negro had been drinking, and walked into the car as it was moving at a fairly high rate of speed. As the car was near Mortimer street, the man lurched Into the front step and was thrown to the ground with considera ble force, being unconscious when picked up. He was placed on the car and brought to town, being met at Third avenue and Eighteenth street by Shaw’s ambulance and carried to the St. Vincent's hospital. BOLD ATTEMPT TO STEAL.
