President of Civic League Says the
Women of the City Are Ones
Most Vitally Affected by
Existing Conditions
To the Editor of The Ape-Herald:
The' Woman's Civic league of Birming
ham wishes to enter a protest against
some of the arguments advanced against
the smoke ordinance, which is now being
discussed In all the papers. Being on
record as one of the first organizations
In favor of this ordinance, we wish to
state that our opinion as to the desira
bility of such an ordinance has not
changed. ^
One argument which has been frequent
ly advanced seems to me a poor adver
tisement for Birmingham. The assertion
that a smoke ordinance will drive indus
tries away from us is a reflection on us.
Is the license to belch forth smoke the
only attraction this district can offer to
industries? We had supposed we had
some other and more solid advantages to
offer.
Personally, we would be ashamed to of
fer business men, who were hunting a lo
cation for a business enterprise, the very
flimsy inducement that we would allow
them to deface our city if they would
locate among us.
An industry which is seeking such an
inducement as this may be seriously em
barrassed in their selection of a site in a
city for an ever increasing number of
cities are using the protection of a smoke
ordinance. Do we want the large manu
facturing concerns which sflread their
stockholders’ money to the four winds of
heaven from the tops of their smoke
stacks?
America is becoming less and less the
home of extravagance and waste in man

! ufacturing enterprises, lessening of cost
of production is now the watch word otj
the modern manufacturer. It is poor busi
ness to lose heat units in tin* atmosphere.
We recognize the difference between
toe problem of the small manufacturer
and the large concern. The loss of heat
units would not compensate the smaller
I consumer of coal for the installation of
; t lie expensive methods of stoking. Thu
money tie spends to prevent smoke is a
straight out contribution to the welfare
of tlie community, and should bp appre
ciated as euch. Surely the cost of Install
ing such an apparatus Is somewhere
around $160—It cannot be considered a very
| great hardship on any manufacturer.
Some space lias been given in the
papers to the opinions of different prom
inent physicians on the question of the
non-polsonous qualities of carbon. We
ran hardly suppose that any person of
adult age and even an elementary knowl
edge of chemistry would be likely to class
carbon among the poisonous substances.
Even women Know enough chemistry 1
for tills discrimination, but we also know ’
we tan swallow with imunity substances
that are dangerous to breathe. Stomachs
and lungs require different treatment.
The protection which nature has given
the lungs by the construction of the nasal
passages is completely effective only un
der normal conditions. Unless physiolog
ists are awful liars, the lungs of people
exposed to constant dust, smoke and soot,
become impregnated with these foreign
substances, and are absolutely changed
in color and texture.
Smoke does not consist entirely of car
1 on, even if carbon is a rejuvenator of
lung tissue. There are various gases which
are constituent parts of it, about which
Die opinion of distinguished physicians do
not seem to have been asked.
It does not really affect the question of
the harmfulness of an atmosphere sur
charged with smoke that carbon is not
poisonous, creosote a disinfectant and a
fine preservative for wood blocks and
lamp black valuable in the arts.
Nobody In all the discussion lm
thought it worth while to consult the
housewife- no reporter has interviewed
any of us—and yet from the expression
I heard at the local meeting of the
Civil league such an interview might
contain ‘hot stuff,” and be therefore
desirable.
With hecomlng modesty we wish to
state that we are the meet Important
people in Birmingham. The declaratlor
of Independence says that the Inalienable
rights of man are •'life, liberty and the
pursuit of happiness.'’ We can help or
hinder you mtghtly in the last of the
trio. In fact we ladle out to you, be
you prince or pauper, your dally comfort
and happiness or the reverse We are
a vast improvement on ourselves when
wo are In a good humor. It might pay
>ou to consult us occasionally and some
times grant our wishes without too much
talk.
The first nf our responsibilities Is tin
keeping of the house clean. We cannot
evade it: cleanliness is not only "next
to Godliness," but there Isn't much God
liness without it. This, our first duty, Is
made so hard for us that we are almost
ready to give up In despair. We wear
out our clothes, our carpets, our cur
tains, our patience and ourselves trying
to keep clean. A great proportion of
us must give up things only slightly less
necessary than cleanliness. culture,
travel, comforts of various kinds, because
the mere keeping half way clean Is si
expensive.
Cleanliness pursued as we must pursue
It is a menace to nerves and purse
Cleanliness ignored as we are tempted
to Ignore It Is a menace to moral char
ucter.
We want a smoke ordinance. We want

WALKER PLANS FOR
MUCH LARGER FAIRj
Stockholders at Recent Meeting De
cide to Invite Winston Farmers
to Participate
.Jasper, February 3.—(Special.)—At the'
annual meeting of the stockholders of toe j
Walker county fair association, extensive
plans were discussed and formulated, as
far as could be at this early date, for n !
much large county fair next fall. The
old officers were re-elected to serve the1
coming year. These are A. S. Prestoh, j
president; Scott Maxwell of Cordova,
vice president; J. H. Craig, secretary.
The old executive committee was also re
elected, consisting R. O. Cranford, chair
man; Guy V. O’Rear, John Kilgore, W.
Ed Hall and J. W. Sartin. The stock
holders elected a. board of directors of j
whom J. H. (’ranford was made chair
man.
In discussing the plans for the fair next'
fail, the entire management was left in
the hands of the executive committee.
They expect to get out a catalogue at an
early date and enlarge tHe fair for the
coming season. The success of the fair
last fall has enhanced the value of the
stock so that it is nowr selling above par.
Winston county will be invited to share
the fair with Walker county, both in at
tendance, in exhibits, and in competing
for the prises, etc.
Tax Collector W. R. Richardson reports
that 2648 poll tax receipts were issued for
the year 1912 in Walker county. Also
there were 190 back polls paid, ranging
from $1.50 to $16.00, and averaging about
$4.50. This is considered an excellent
showing.

CONCEDES SIGHTS
OF STATES IN BILL
Connecticut Measure Will
Also Affect Alabama
COOSA IS INVOLVED
Measures Will Probably Pass Senate
Without Federal Supervision,
Save in the Matter of
Navigation
Gossip in connection with the visit of
tiie English financier* to the Birming
ham district is to the effect that the
Oonecttcut river bill, as drawn by the
Secretary of War and the Connecticut
River company, has little chance of
passing through the .Congress of the
United States.
This matter is of especial interest to ,
the people of Alabama, inasmuch as
the same principle is involved in both
the Connecticut bill and the bill pro- ;
viding for the improvement of the
Coosa river—yie light of the state
to maintain its sovereignty over the
streams within the boundary of the
state. The Coosa river bill, in which
the financiers at present in Alabama
are interested, was vetoed by Presi
dent Taft because it did not contain
a ,clause as a result of which the fed
eral government might exact a toll
for water power developed.
As has been published, the members
of the committee cn commerce of the
Senate of the nation have made two
reports, a so-called majority and a so
called minority. To the rninorty re
port a majority of the members of the
committee have attached their signa
tures and have protested against what
they term an effort of the government
to dispose of the property of the state
of Connecticut without the consent of
tlie state of Connecticut.
The general understanding that the |
Connecticut river bill will not pass as
originally drawn, but that It wil pass;
as will the Coosa river bill, without pro
visions making federal supervision, save
In matters of navigation, possible, is
due to three facts, the majority of the
members of the commerce committee are
opposed to the bill as it was originally
drawn, the Washington Times, an erst
while earnest advocate of federal con
trol of water power, lias editorially ad
mitted that in a technical sense the mi
nority report (signed by the majority of
the members of the committee! is cor
rect, and an amendment offered by Sen
ator Jones of Washington, providing tha
the bill cannot become effective until
with the Secretary of War an agreement
is filed bearing the signatures of offi
cials of the Connecticut river company
and of the authorities of the state of
Connecticut in which the proper author
ity of the state is recognized and ac
knowledgement made of the full author
ity of the state to supervise, regulate and
control the iates to he charged by the
company for the energy developed.
The visitors, in discussing the situation,
construed this amendment offered by
Senator Jones us a very graceful manner
in which the opposition has displayed its
purpose to surrender and acknowledge in
tl)is regard the sovereignty of the state
Alabama is especially interested in this
congressional battle inasmuch as one of
its rivers is also being considered. The
fight against the Connecticut bill as It
was originally drawn and In behalf 01 j
the Coosa bill as vetoed by President [
Taft is being led in the Senate by Sen
ator Bankhead and in the House oy
Congressman Heflin.
Montgomery, February 3.—(Special.)—
The state tax commission held its regu
lar monthly meeting this afternoon, at |
which time only business of a routine
nature was taken up. The commission
considered a plan of work for the next
few months, and discussed assessments
in several of the counties of the state
in which members of the commission
have been engaged for the past few weeks.
As announced some time ago, the com
mission will probably not. visit any of
the larger counties of the state this year,
their plan being to make assessments
in those counties which they were unable
to visit last year. Assessments for the
present year have already been taken up
In southeast Alabama, west Alabama and
some counties in the northern part of the
state.
Mobile. February 3.—(Special.)—Two j
hours were taken up by the grand jury i
drawn at noon today in examining wit
nesses in the alleged county corruption.
Because of Mardi Gras a recess was de
clared until Wednesday morning. The
grand jury got down to business about 1
o’clock this afternoon and the first wit
ness was Engineer Charles Dew, in charge
of highways of Mobile county.
