Will Come Here
$1000 PER YEAR
>1 r. Bellamy Very Enthusiastic Over j
Field for Work in Birmingham
and Speaks Highly of City.
Will Lecture Today
George Settle of New York city, play- '
ground and social expert, will soon come
to Birmingham, where there is to be es
tablished a southern headquarters of the
National Playground association. This
announcement was made here last night
by George A. Bellamy, who is in Bir
mingham representing the association.
Mr. Settle Is expected in Birmingham
at' April 1.
rJ o are only a few' of these head
quarters in the United States, one being
in the New England states, one in the cen
tral states, one In the western stakes, one
at Chicago for Illinois alone and a few
others. The district covered by the head
quarters in Birjrttngham will extend from
Richmond, V.a., to New Orleans, and all
states from Virginia to Louisiana and east
of the Mississippi river between those
The Birmingham Chamber of Commerce
yesterday at the meeting of the board of
directors included $1000 in the annual
budget to go to this playground head
quarters. it costs about $6500 a year to run
a headquarters of this kind and other
cities in the district will make up the
rest. Richmond has already appropriated
$1000, Atlanta has promised $10t|>, Chatta
nooga lias promised $500 and so has Jack
sonville, Fla. The other cities will an
nounce the sums they will give in the
near future.
Compliments Birmingham
Mr. Bellamy, who is head worker for
Hiram House, Cleveland, O.. spoke very
highly of Birmingham yesterday when
seen at the Hillman hotel. He stated that
this city had one of the greatest futures
of any city in the country, that it w«h* so
young it w’as neither bad nor good, and
that now was the time for organizations
of this kind to take hold here. He was
highly enthusiastic over the good to be
derived by Birmingham from tlie estab
lishment of the headquarters here with
Mr. Settle in the city a large part of the
At 1 o’clock today at the annex of
the Gold Lion tea rooms, Mr. Bellamy
will address a gathering of civic, social
and playground workers at a Dutch treat
luncheon. The luncheon is being given
under the auspices of the Chamber of
Commerce and the Associated Charities.
Hill Ferguson, chairman of the improve
ment committee of the chamber, prob
ably will preside. The city commissioners,
the board of education, the park com
missioners, the members of the local play
ground association, the superintendent of
schools and all the principals of the
schools and the officers of clqhs Inter
ested in civic work are invited to the
luncheon today. Both men and women
will be present.
Mr. Bellamy stated last night that In
his address at the luncheon he would
speak on '^Public Recreation,
lem of the City.” Ho said lie v *
why recreation was necessary ativ
with botli phases of it. the commeu
and social.
Mr. Bellatny^appeared before the direc
tors of the chamber yesterday afternoon
and talked a few moments on the work
which would be clone by such a man as
W'otild be sent here. Several of the direc
tors spoke In favor <-»f the proposition,
among them Hill Ferguson, John W.
Sibley, William Ryun and others, some
particularly emphasizing the advertising
feature of the matter for the city. The
directors then appropriated the $1000.
Situation Here
“Birmingham," stal'd Mr. Bellamy at
his hotel last night, is one of tHe most
hopeful cities in the country. Atlanta and
Memphis ami tjiese other southern citie}
are older and staid and well established,
and have fallen into the error of their
ways. But Birmingham is new; she has
resources that none of the others have;
she is growing and will continue grow
ing. and for th* reasons I wanted the
southern headquarters of the playground
association here.
“Birmingham is young, and for that
reason is neither good nor had; she hasn't
had time to become either. This is the
ideal time for such a work as this asso
ciation will do to he started here, and
the good to he derived by Birmingham
is beyond estimation. Birmingham has
no evils to over one and the establish
ment of this work here will now grow
up with tHe city and will keep down ^all
evils which otherwise would surely crop
Birmingham is the best location
geographically. lie re there are good
railroad connection to all other points
in the district to be covered. Many
trains leave Birmingham every dav
radiating in all directions and this will
greatly facilitate the work of the man
who is to be placed in charge here.
This is something that could be found
nowhere else in the south.
“The advantages to be derived by
Birmingham from the establishment of
these headquarters here are hard to
define. Birmingham has immense re
sources still ta develop. The secretary
who will come here will be an expert
who will be able to give advice which
otherwise would never be secured or
else would cost thousands of dollars.
He will hold conferences with the local
associations and local city officials and
will make surveys of the city as to
the layout of parks and school play
grounds and streets and tenement dis
tricts and moving picture shows and
sucdi things. He will bring here the
experience of an expert and first will
get the facts as to what the city needs.
He will have no evils to overcome nor
mistakes to correct; he will start right
in at the beginning and his work will
grow' up with the city. First, he will
get the facts; second, decide on the
wisest uso of them, and, third, will
map out a comprehensive plan or sur
vey by which Birmingham may avoid
all the serious mistakes that have been
made by other cities in this line.”
Mr. Bellamy is not officially con
nected with the National Playground
association.’ He is head worker for
Hiram house, but travels over the
country at different times doing such
work for the association as he is now
doing in Birmingham. He stated yes
terday that expert authorities from all
over the world had pronounced Hiram
house the greatest playground in the
world. One feature he spoke of was
that baseball and other outdoor games
are played there at night. A great open
air field has been equipped with sun
burst lights and ho stated that a flying
ball could be seen for 300 or 400 feet.
A newspaper can be read anywhere
on the ground at any time of night.
Mr. Bellamy will leave tonight for
Atlanta, then to Memphis, Chatta
nooga, Nashville and back north to
Minneapolis and St. Paul.
Bladensburg, Md., February 27.—“Gen.'’
Rosalie Jones and her “army” arrived
here late this afternoon after a wet tramp
from Laurel, which they left this morn
ing. At Laurel a message was received
by “General” Jones that the national
suffrage officers themselves desired to
deliver to President Wilson the message
the pilgrims are bearing to Washington.
This situation caused consternation In
the “army,” but the protests of some of
the “soldiers” were silenced by the pacific
attitude of “General” Jones. When the
“hikers” reached lu re they were met by
Miss Alice Paul from the Washington
headquarters, and after a long confer
ence it was decided to leave the ques
tion open until after the capital head
quarters is reached tomorrow.
The most disagreeable adventure of the
day was encountered at College park,
where students jeered the marchers. Their
remarks finally became so unpleasant that
newspaper men with the party Interfered
and a lively fist fight resulted, with the
students getting the worst of the argu
ment. All the fair suffragists were at
tended by physicians tonight and bruised
and blistered feet put into condition for
the final march tomorrow.
Trouble over the message to President
elect Wilson apparently was not setiled
by the decision of Miss Paul and “Gen
era 1” Jones to submit the entire subject
to a further conference tomorrow. In
surgency developed late tonight and Miss
Elizabeth Freeman, one of the “hikers,”
declared that if the members of the
“army” were not permitted to deliver
I the message as originally intended, she
would desert and return to New York.
\ _
Washington, February 27.—“Gen."
Rosalie Jones and her army of “inkers'*
from New York are expected to be
within striking distance of the cap
ital about noon tomorrow and they will
b«- met by a large delegation from the
suffrage headquarters here, headed by
Miss Alice Paul, executive head of the
suffrage movement, and other leaders;
who will ride out toward Hyatsvillc
and escort them into Washington. A j
troop composed of 20 cavalry women,'
who are to take part in the pageant!
March 3, will form the official escort, j
There also will be a battalion of young
women marchers who are members of
a local tramping club.
Arriving in AA’ashinglon the “hikers”
will march through various streets to
the suffrage AYashington headquar- I
ters. A short time after reaching the!
headquarters a large open air meeting
will be held and “General" Jones will
make the chief address.
A final effort will bo made tumor- j
row to obtain the consent of senators !
and representatives from suffrage!
states to take part In the parade Mon
day. An appeal has been addressed
to all such members of Congress and
sevfral replies already have been re- 1
ceived. A reply from Senator Robert
M. I^aFollette stated that while he was
not able to be in the pageant per
sonally he had delegated two of his
sons to take part. Senator Reed Smoot
of Utah wrote he was unable to take
a place in the procession but would
■end a substitute. Similar letters were
received today from other members of
Claims He Was Ejected
From WhiteCompartment
With Negro Prisoner

Montgomery, February 27.—(Special.)—
Sheriffs in Alabama egn use their own
discretion in carrying negro prisoner*
| into coaches for white persons or negro
* sections of passenger trains, according
to the ruling of Judge W. W. Pearson
of the circuit court in the case of Sheriff
V. A Spenny of Autauga county against
the Mobile and Ohio railroad, today.
Sheriff Spenny sued for >-000 foi\ dam
ages, alleging that he was ejected' from
the train at Montgomery while he had a
negro prisoner in custody because he
* refused to carry the man in the colored
i compartment. The railroad filed a demur*
i er, but the court overruled it and the
*ase will be tried at the next term of
the circuit court.
Judge Fear?on held that if the statutes
were strictly construed sheriffs with ne
gro prisoners would be denied passage
on railroads, as the luw -ays no white
man ran sit in a section furnished fo.
; colored passengers. The court ruled that
I ut times the sheriff would be forced to
cany his prisoner in the coJoaed section
for safety from mob violence, and that
at others it would be necessary for the
prisoner to be kept in the white com
partment. '
Increase War Materials
Paris, February 27.—The French parlia
ment was asked today to appropriate
immediately $100,000,000 “for the renewal
and increase of armaments and war ma
terials." This request was made by the
ministers of war and finance in a note
which said:
“Recent wars have shown convincingly
that a nation's means <*f defense should
be kept abreast of the progress of sci
ence and military art. Any Inferiority
in this respect would be most difficult
to remedy during a war."

West End Street Conditions
To the Editor of The Age-Herald:
To a subscriber will you kindly give
space in your valuable paper and publish
the following remarks which I leel con
strained to make in connection with a con
dition which has obtained in West Lnd
for the past five years and previous to
that time as well, as I am informed. 1
refer to the condition of Tuscaloosa a\ e
nue just west of Elyton school, . after
every heavy rain. This morning just after
reading about opening the new street
across the city and having in mind the
proposed boulevard from one end of the
greater city to the other, l was com
pelled to walk along, with all the other
residents of our suburb, to get to my
office in time. It is not only a long
walk but a very wet and muddy one just
at the point where this street overflows,
and it is not necessary to have a storm
like we had last night for this street to
become impassable to street cars, just a
heavy rain.
Now it does seem that if there is any
money available in the present low state
of the city finances it should be spent on
making this street passable to the street
cars in all weathers and talk about boule
vards and new streets afterward. Re
I spfectfully. • HATTON.

Differs From Kirkpatrick
To the Editor of The Age-Herald:
Mr. Kirkpatrick, city engineer, In a
quoted interview with the Ledger of the
2iitb lost., says: "The proposed widening
of the sidewalks has grown into nothing
less than a light between the ‘wealthy
and the common' people, and that is just
what this movement against the widen
ing of the sidewalk on Second avenue
amounts to.”
I do nof doubt Mr. Kirkpatrick’s engi
nering ability; in fact, I must concede It,
for our commissioners would not have
employed him had not his ability been of
the highest type. But I do question ills
right, province or good judgment to enter
into this controversy ana insult property
owners who have the temerity to disagree
from Idm, in their efforts to protect their
interests os they see it. Widening the
sidewalk on First avenue and on Nine
teenth and Twentieth streets would not
interfere with the traffie so much, for
they arc already 100 feet wide, but to
make Second avenue a 18 foot street
would, in my judgment, seriously injure
this avenue.
The Age-Hc-rald's most excellent edi
torial suggestion In today's issue, If car
ried out, there would be no congestion on
any sidewalks in the city, and in that
connection, Mr. Editor, you say: "If the
commissioners would take steps through
the patrolmen to make pedestrians keep to
the right and quit holding conventions on
the sidewalks, the sidewalk space would
be found to be sufficient." You cover
the ground completely. The wide side
walks and wide streets «nd avenues In
the business section of the city of Bir
mingham are-the admiration of every
visitor, and we see no reason to change
any of them. W. B. LEEDY.
