B. B. COMER ISSUES AN ADDRESS TO THE PEOPLE i ■ . . .. B. B. Comer, democratic nominee for governor of Alabama, issued the fol lowing address yesterday: To the People of the State of Alabama: Again I thank you for your hearty co operation and endorsement of me i,u the continuous and extended en deavor to secure for the people the for ever democratic principle of the state's government, founded on the people's flgl.tH and the preservation of that government, Its policies and politics to the people and to their interests. -I will call your attention that this is the third great victory won by you In your efforts 10 break the railroad and Corporation domination of the etat^;, four, years ago a legislature pledged to make the railroad commis sion elective and to give it adequate power; two years ago in my election as: president of the railroad commis sion on the issue—lower freight rates, equitable car service rules and prompt payment of claims—and now a gover nor, a sate administration and the legislature on the distinct platform of the Georgia classification and the Georgia rate; the lifting of the railroad boycott and suppression of t.ie use of those greatest assets of the state— the port of Mobile and our navigable waterways; the state’s control of the express, telegraph and telephone companies and the making of adequate laws to govern same and limit their charges; the absolute suppression by law of the practice of using corporate money and all forms of corporate kind peses, no matter under what name, to Interfere with or influence our elec torate and our legislation. Carrier’s Charges. It has been repeatedly shown in our transactions with these carriers that there is no competition or law to limit or Interfere with their charges and rules, and every production and con sumption of our people is subject to a private interest-made rate; to the car rier’s cupidity, and that cupidity lim ited only to what tlie traffic will stand, and a final adjudication of even tills, subject only to the desire and judgment of an absentee lanlord. This is a con dition of affairs that the Anglo-Saxon lias in no age tolerated. In the settle ment of tills great question it must be remembered that the constitution, both state nnd federal, guarantee protection to' the carriers, and the talk of hurting the railroad Is idle. No one knows bet ter than tlie railroads themselves that the constitution absolutely provides for them safety against unreasonable regu lation. Our own stautes and our own administration should under every cir cumstance secure protection to the shipper, otherwise it will be as the mother abandoning her off-spring to a cupidity, which has never been meas ured. The foundation for tteniral prosperity Is the farmer, manufacturer, laborer and eonsumer. At all hazards protect them, and you lay an indestructible foundation for prosperity to every other class. I would call jour attention to the* fact that Alabama lias been too liberal In her law3 and conduct to the tranchised public carriers, so much so that out of this liberality has grown burdensome, in equitable and extortionate conditions for the people. We should follow' the leader ship of such states as Texas, Illinois, Iowa, Wisconsin, Virginia, North Caro lina and Georgia in most adequately pro tecting the interests of the manufac turer, producer, laborer and consumer, for out of this protection, as stated, will grow' the welfare of every other Inter est. These are tho fundamental principles of a sound political economy and have been found by every experience and in every age to furnish the only safe erection of prosperity to every species of business and to every species of interest. The old soldier should be cart'd for; we should be as liberal to him as our finances will admit. Our educational fa/ cillties should be greatly increased, par ticularly tho common schools In the rural districts. Alabama stands very low in the sisterhood of states in the education of her citizens. Every one should join in saying that there must he a distinct im provement. Regarding Cheap Labor. Immigration facilities should be encour aged. but I will reiterate the sentiments of my speech—the bringing in of a low class of cheap labor should not be thought of. Statistics show that 20 per 'cent of our population approximately 400,000 have emigrated. If our internal condition should be greatly improved by making the transportation facilities cheaper and better, by allowing the ever increasing demand for labor of every species to in crease their pay by keeping our own peo ple at home and giving them facilities for enlightenment and prosperity, the unhin dered increase from these conditions would go a long way toward solving the problem. As said by me in every speech dur ing the campaign I advocate the enact ment of an adequate local option law'. Fraternal Hand. To my opponents, without exception or cavil, I extend the right hand of friend ship; the brotherhood of fellow citizens and fellow democrats, and the request that as true men, as patriotic citizens and as true democrats they will do that which every one of my friends and I would have done for them—with aid and co-operation —help carry out the will of the people as expressed in this the greatest primary ever held In the state. Again thanking those of the press and those of our fellow citizens who have so unselfishly, manfully and patriotically made this fight, and extending the hand of kiudness to all, enmity to none, I cordially invite the co-operation and help of every patriotic citizen of Alabama to aid the people to reap the fruits of the victory they have won. B. B. COMER. ......-. BROKERAGE HOUSES WILL DISCONTINUE IN OBEDIENCE TO THE CITY ORDI NANCE AGAINST SPECULATION IN FUTURES HOUSES CLOSING UP—COTTON QUOTATIONS. Among tho brokerage firms having of li os In Birmingham, commonly called “bucks' shops'* there Is no longer any Visible agitation concerning the ordinance passed by the City Council annullng their licenses after October 1. They take a philosophical view of the situation and realize that if public senti ment Is against a continuance of specula tion their business In Birmingham Is at nr. end. And they have little doubt, It is aald, that when tho legislature meets next January that a bill will be passed pro hibiting wire houses from engaging in business In the state. It is rumored, how ever, that Ware Jc Leland may test the constitutionality of the city's right to withdraw Its license before tho expiration of tho year. Glbert & Clay have not made public their Intentions with regard to tho matter. Abercrombie & Co. have already closed their offices here, and Loveman .<fc Co. are preparing to do the same within the next week or two. They are taking no new business and are closing out all open trades as rapidly as la consistent with the Interests of their customers. Nash 11. Hurt, manager of the local office states that the 'Tuscaloosa branch will continue doing business until action is taken by the legislature, but that here in Birming ham future trading Is practically dead; and besides, the firm has no desire to test the city's authority. They have no feeling In tho matter and are perfectly willing tc withdraw from Birmingham. The other two concerns having wire con nections—the Birmingham Commission company and Foster & Co.—will close iheir places, It is understood within the month. It has been suggested that in order to give the spot cotton people the benefit of continuous market Quotations without which In active periods. It Is said, they arc considerably hampered, some arrange jucni will be made by whla.a direct wire connections with ths market centers will ho made without, of course, the execution of orders. This plan will prooubly be on the line of a local exchange in the tech nical sense of the£ term. COMMITS SUICIDE WITH CARBOLIC ACID Mrs. Charles Hoick of Boyles Ends Her Life Because of Poor Health.

She died two hours later, begging the doc tor who had been called In to do nothing for her, as she did not want to live. Her despondency Is said to have been caused by poor health. The remains wore brought to Birming ham early yesterday morning by Ligo Loy, the Interment being at Fnon cem etery in the afternoon. The husband of the deceased was for some time a dairyman at Boyles. Mrs. Hoick also leaves a lt> year-old son. EX-CHAMPION MAY COME. John L. Sullivan Intimates He Will Attend State Fair. John L. Sullivan, ex-champion pugi list of the world, wants to be one of the attractions at the State Fair. General Manager R. M. Williams re ceived a proposition from Sullivan yes terday, offering to play a week's en gagement at the coming fair and guar anteeing that he would "break all records.” Just what particular records the mighty John I* propses to break is not known, as his offer is very briefly expressed, being written on a postal card, and all he says is that he will "be pleased to be at your fair, park or theatre." From this It is not known whether he wants to do a monologue stunt or go up in an airsiiip. It is possible that Sullivan’s offer may be accepted, as he would no doubt prove to be quite a drawing card for a very large number of people. While it has been fourteen years since he was deposed as the world's champion bruiser, the fact remains that the American prize ring has never pro duced a man who was the great popu lar idol that Sullivan was In his palmy days.

CLARENCE HUGHES IN HOUSTON, TEX, JAIL HE WAS IN TROUBLE IN BIRMING HAM A FEW MONTHS AGO, BUT CASES WERE .»OL PROSSED—HE WIRES CHIEF WIER . Chief of rolice Wier yesterday re ceived a telegram from Clarence N. Hughes, who was arrested here a few months ago on several charges of forg ery, which his father afterwards settled, stating that he was held in Houston, Tetf., and asking that he be brought to Birmingham for trial on the old charges against him. The parents of Hughes live in Still more, Ga., w’here his father is a prosper ous farmer. When young Hughes was arrested in Birmingham he was charged with forging a number of checks. The senior Mr. Hughes made a number of friends in Birmingham and was in this way enabled to settle the troubles in which his son had fallen, and get tne cases nol prossed. Chief Wier replied yesterday to the tele gram telling young Hughes that the cases here had been settled and that it would bo impossible to bring him back to Bir mingham to answer the charges against him. The 'following special dispatch was re ceived from Houston last night: “Clarence Hughes, alias W. H. Proctor, alleged to have posed as a bank cashier and victimized numerous banks through out the states of Louisiana and Texas, was arrested in San Antonio and is now here in Jail. After touring Louisiana, Hughes started for Texas and landed in Houston, fie remained in this city a few days. He was followed out of Louisiana by notices which were mailed to the dif ferent banks throughout Texas notifying them to be on the lookout, but before these notices reached Houston Hughes had skipped. The First National bank, the South Texas National and the National City banks are said to be victims. “Hughes left Houston and went to Gal veston. The name of W. H. Proctor, cashier of the Bank of Emanuel of Swanesboro, Ga., is alleged to have been used In response to a telegram sent them. The bank of Emanuel wired the National City of this city aa follows: ‘Arrest party claiming himself to be W. II. Proctor, Bank of Emanuel.’ “Three affidavits hold him. His aliases are J. H. Martin, P. L. Davis, Walter Coleman and P. L. Price. He is under parole in Colorado where he is said to have been convicted of passing bad checks. He has wired chief of police of Birmingham that he is under arrest.” END OF COTTON YEAR. Birmingham’s Receipts Totaled 116, 000 Bales—Improved Facilities. The figures of the two compresses and the cotton mill’s takings show that the total cotton receipts of Birmingham for the season ending September 1, are ap proximately 116.000 hales or 2000 less than the highest record. Although those figures are consistent with the total crop, which is the second largest in the history of the cotton industry, another reason is ascribed for the local increase In re ceipts and that is the greatly improved facility for handling and storing cotton in Birmingham. The Birmingham compress has received during the past season 45,000 bales; the Warrant Warehouse. 65,000 bales and the cotton mill’s takings were 6000 bales. Internal Revenue.

C., writes: f . “Peruna has cured me of catarrh of the head and stomach, and ner- * von* debility from which I suffered greatly for two year*. | ..“I moMt heartily recommend Peruna to all suffering from these dis- 1 eases. | “Peruna is the best medicine I have ever known.” 4 PERIJNA Is not a nervine. It does not benefit nervous debility by stimulating merely. It removes the cause of many cases of nervous debility. It assists digestion, in creases the appetite, regulates the circu lation of the blood and thus gives new life to nervous invalids. Nerve tonics, such ' as strychnia, quinine NERVE and often do TONICS more harm than DO NO GOOD good. Nervousness i i—iJ generally depends upon some digestive derangement or bodi ly deficiency. The rational cure for nervousness is to correct the condition upon which it de pends. It is because Peruna does this very thing that it has become so popular for diseases of the nervous system. Miss Alma Cox, Orum, S. C., writes: “I have been a great _ sufferer from dys DYSPEPSIA pepsia for five years. CAUSES How I suffered no Nervousness tongue can tell. I Ml .... tried several of the best physicians without receiving much benefit and also tried many medicines. “But still I suffered with sick headache, cold feet and hands, palpitation of the heart, and a heavy feeling in my stomach and chest. “At times I would be so nervous I could not bear to have any one around me. “One day a friend sent me one of Dr, Hartman's pamphlets and I decided to write to him. He ad- A FRIEND vised Peruna and ADVISED Manalin and after PE-RU-NA taking the medicine ■——— two weeks I felt greatly relieved. My head did not ache so much and my stom ach was relieved of Its heavy feeling. "I am so thankful that I can bay that after taking several bottles of Peruna and Manalin I am restored to health. “Before taking your remedies I could not eat anything. I lived on barley water and panopeptone for two years. Now f can eat. “Everybody Is. surprised at my Improve ment. I would ad vise all suffering wo- —— men to take your ADVISE remedies, as I know if it WPre not for Pe- SUFFERERS runa and Manalin I " would have been in my grave today. “I cannot thank you enough for the kind advice you have given me.” Mrs. J. C. Jamison, 61 Marchant St., Watsonville, Cal., writes: “I was troubled with cramps In the stomach for six years. The doctors said that I had nervous dyspepsia. “I procured Peruna and commenced tak ing It. I have taken several bottles and am entirely cured. “I have gained in flesh and strength and feel like a different person.” White 235, Tyson 610 Weakley 79, Bllbro >50, Coleman 825, Dowdell 467, McClellan >82, Parks 200, Bankhead 487, Clark 476, Fitts 123, Johnston 389, Knox 728, Oates t0, Stallings 196.
