BOWRON PROTESTS
AGAINST PAVING
A titude of Fourteenth Avenue Be
tween Twentieth and Twenty-First
Streets Makes Paving Unwise
James Bowron appeared before the city !
commission yesterday protesting against
the pavement of Fourteenth avenue be
tween Twentieth and Twenty-first streets,
south. He stated that it would be unwise
in ljis opinion to pave that block on ac- 1
Count of Its elevation.
*'i am not actuated,” he said, “by any
Consideration of the cost entailed. As a
matter of fact, If the city needs the money
1 will pay the assessment willingly, pro
vided the city agrees not to do the paving.
1 simply ask to be protected in the right j
of my property.”
There were other Southside residents'
present, and they presented a petition
signed by a majority of the owners of i
front footage in that block and adjoining
blocks.
The commission will inspect for the pur
pose of ascertaining the conditions.

52 DEFENDANTS IN
Elaborate Denials of All
Allegations of Contempt
of Court Made by
Each
POSTPONEMENT IS
EXPECTED WHEN CASE
COMES UP MONDAY
Grocers Say List Published in Decem
ber, 1911, and August, 1912, Was
Merely Trade Directory—No
Similarity Between Case
and Previous One
Answers from 52 out of 59 defendants
in the contempt case of the United States
vs. th' Southern Wholesale Grocers' as
sociation were received yesterday in the
offices of the clerk of the federal court
here. They came from several southern
states and are a formal step in the proce
dure of the case, which is set for trial
before United States Judge William I.
Grubb next Monday.
The answers are practically the same
in each instance, all being an elaborate
denial of the allegations of the petition
of the government charging that the as
sociation and some 50 of its members
stand in contempt of court because of
violation of a decree made by the court
in a former case against the same de
fendant. The answer of President Joseph
H. McUaurin of tlie association is among
those which have not yet been received.
No Similarity in Cases
Hinton Claybaugh, special agent of the
government in this case, who is here
now working on it, brought out a new
feature of the case yesterday when he
mentioned that there was absolutely no
similarity between this case and the pre
vious one against the same association.
The first trial was for a civil offense al
leging violation of the Sherman anti
trust law and this case, as Mr. Claybaugh
stated yesterday, is for an alleged crimi
nal offense.
Mr. Claybaugh lias practically complet
ed going through the hundreds of letters
which lie has accumulated as evidence
in the case, and is about ready for the
trial. It is expected that merely formal
preliminary arguments of attorneys for
the defense will be heard when the case
is called Monday and that tlie real trial
will be set for a later date, when the
defendants in the case will be present
lr. person.
In the answers filed yesterday the de
fendants admit the existence of the al
leged “green hook,” as set out in tlie
petition, but they deny that this “green
book ’ as it exists was held by the former
decree to be of the character alleged in
tile petition of the government. They
admit the injunction granted in the for
mer case prohibiting the publication of
a list ot the wholesale grocers in the
territory covered by the association with
the idea in view of regulating the trade
and prices of these concerns, but they
deny that they have violated such a de
cree.
State List Was Trade Directory
The defendants in their answer set out
that the list published in December, 1911,
and August, 1913, and used by the mem
bers of the association, is merely a trade
directory ol' the grocery concerns of the
southern states; that it contains about 1300
names, and that of this number but about
400 are members of the association or have
agreed to act In harmony with it; and
Comparative
, digestibility
of Food
Made with different Baking Powders
From a Series of Elaborate Chemical Tests:
An equal quantity of bread (biscuit) was made
with each of three different kinds of baking powder—
cream of tartar, phosphate, and alum—and submitted
separately to the action of the digestive fluid, each
for the same length of time.
The relative percentage of the food digested is
shown as follows:
\
Bread made with
Royal Cream of Tartar Powder t_
j 100 Per Cent Digested |
Bread made with #
phosphate powder:_
| 68*4 Per Cent. Digested |
Bread made with
alum powder:_
| 67^1 Per Cent Digested |
These tests, which ar^ absolutely reliable and
unprejudiced, make plain a, fact of great importance
to everyone: Food raised with Royal, a cream of
tartar Baking Powder, is shown to be entirely diges
tible, while the alum and phosphate powders are found
to largely retard the digestion of the food made from
them. •
Undigested food is not only wasted food, but it
is the source of very many bodily ailments.
SMOKE ORDINANCE LAID
TO REST AND INSPECTORS
TENDER RESIGNATIONS
Weatherly Refuses to Be “Responsible for the Corpse”—Law
Now Allows Smoke for 30 Minutes in Morning and for
Ten Minutes Each Hour During Day
Tile progenitor of the ultia-progresslve
smoke ordinance. James Weatherly, has
very gracefully abandoned the fight for a
smokeless Birmingham.
The city commission yesterday after
noon adopted amendments to the ordi
nance which was so universally termed
radical and impractical, as a result of
which every chimney, in the early morn
ing, may smoke unmolested for a period
of 30 minutes, and thereafter, lo minutes
per hour.
Thereupon. Mr. Weatherly yielded tho
ghost, declared that he would not en
f ndeuvor to make effective the ordinance,
because, as it had been amended, it did
not have his sympathy, and announced
that all three of his inspectors had re
signed.
Said Mr. Weatherly in this regard:, "J
decline to sit up with the corpse, or to
buy the remains, or to administer upon
the estate of the deceased."
After the meeting, he expressed him
self: “To all practical purposes, the fight
is lost. The amendments, in my opinion,
make the ordinance inoperative. The
smoke inspectors have resigned, claiming
that with tlie ordinance amended they
would ha-e no duties with which to he
occupied. All that remains is a skeleton
on which to build when again awakens
the conscience of the general public."
MR. WEATHERLY VOTED
AGAINST THE ORDINANCE
At the expense of being termed by the
"ultra-progressives,” un progressive and
reactionary, the majority of the members
of the commission, by adopting amend
ments to the Weatherly smoke ordinance,
put the last nail in the little, coffin of
the document which has proved a source
of such irritation to the manufacturers of
Birmingham.
There is now in existence a smoke ordi
nance. It denies the plants of manu
facturers to emit smoke save for half an
hour in the early mornings, and for 10
minutes per hour for the remaining hours
of the day. There are now smoke
inspectors. President Exum slated in the
meeting that the ordinance was in the
care of the commission as a whole. What
active steps will be taken in the future
to make it effective, have not been made
public.
The original document permitted the
chimneys to emit smoke for 10 minutes
after the firing of the furnaces, and
thereafter, for four minutes per hour.
Judge Lane introduced the amendment.?
providing for 30 minutes and 10 minutes.
By his vote and that of President Exum.
the amendments were adopted. Commis
sioner Weatherly voted “no." The ordi
nance was then presented as amended.
It was enacted into law by the vote of
the president and Judge Lane. Mr.
Weatherly voted against the ordinance,
leaving the impression thereby, that he
preferred no smoke ordinance to one
which he considered dead or at least in
effective. #
FACETIOUS REMARKS
CAUSE MUCH LAUGHTER
In stating that he would not attend
to the enforcement of the new ordinance,
Mr. Weatherly endeavored to make it
plain that, he was r.ot actuated by “feel
ing," but on account of the fact that he
was not 1i: sympathj' with the amended
bill.
“I am under the impression that as a
result of the amendments,” said he, “the
manufactuiers can get along very com
fortably without me. and without the in
spectors. i suggest that the enforcement
of the ordinance be made a charge ot
either the president or the commissioner
of public justice.”
The rema ks of Mr. Weatherly created
considerable* amusement and considerable
laughter. He wras in the best possible
humor, and shed no tears following the
death of the ordinance which had been
his pet of pets since his induction into
office.
Present at the meeting were representa
tives of the manufacturers who have al
ways contended that the Weatherly ordi
nance was impractical and burdensome.
They were apparently satisfied in the re
sult of the commissioners' deliberation.
denies that the book was published for
any purpose enjoined by the injunction
granted in the former ease.
The defendants set out in their answers
that the introduction of the book in ques
tion expressly states that no recommenda
tion nor guarantee can be given nor im
plied with the names of the concerns
which appear within, and further that the
absence of any concern’s name does not
mean that it is not a competent, legitimate
and honest concern, nor that no business
shall be done with it. They state that
the furnishing of the list to any whole
sale grocery firm did not mean in any
'direct nor implied way that that concern
was not to deal with any linn except
wlu.se names were in the book. They fur
ther state that they know nothing about
the alleged letters written by President J.
H. Me La ur In of the association.'
They state that the allegations contained
In the petition in regard to alleged price
regulation among the members of the
association are not specific enough to per
mit an answer, hut that as the court re
quires some kind of an answer they en
ter a complete denial of all such allega
tions and insist on the motion previously
filed by them asking that the petitioner
be more specific in these charges. They
deny they have aided or abetted or have
acted directly in coercing or compelling
any producer or manufacturer to market
his product through any medium or whole
sale concern or set of wholesale con- :
cerrs, or that they have given manufac- j
tuners to understand that they will cease i
patronizing him if he does not market his J
product through certain mediums.
No Intent to Disobey Decree
They alleged that the United States by j
its counsel in the former case did assent ;
to the publication of this book as it now
is published, and which has been called I
the "green book." and they deny any in- |
tent or purpose to disobey the decree
which was rendered against the publica- j
tlon of a book containing the names of the i
members of the association alone. They .
assert that "as the United States failed in
its former case based on these same
grounds,” that the allegation of “con
tempt of court in this proceedings is res
adjudicata against the United States and
has been waived.” They then assert that
lho allegation contained in the petition to
the effect that efforts were made and
methods used to delay and prohibit the
reduction of prices is too vague to answer. ■
ami insist on their motion that the gov- j
ernment be more specific and file more
particulars in this regard.
The answers are all filed by the same
attorneys. Luke B. Wright. Carrutherfi
Ewing, Walker Percy and C. M. Cooper.

FOR THEFESTIVAL
Cincinnati Orchestra Being
Considered—Meeting
Wednesday
The prospects for holding a music fes
tival in May are said to. be bright. The
directors of the Birmingham Music Fes
tival association held a meeting yester
day afternoon. President J. H. Holcombe
presided and B. B. Burton was present
as secretary. After some discussion the
meeting adjourned until next Wednesday
afternoon when a final decision as to
the proposed event will be reached.
At a meeting held some weeks ago it
was practically agreed that a festival
would be held in April, not later than the
week of the fourteenth, but three or four
of the orchestras that were then avail
able are not so now. A recent proposition
came from the Cincinnati orchestra for
two night performances and a matinee
May 5 and G, ami it was decided at yester
day’s session of the' board in case a fes
tival is to be held, to have that orchestra,
which, it is claimed, ranks among the
best, in the world today. This is tin
only orchestra that is now available.
President Holcombe said that those
members of the board who attended yes
terday’s meeting were heartily in favor
of holding a festival with the Cincinnati
orchestra and several vocal celebrities
as the attractions, provided, however,
that practically all the directors displayed
genuine Interest in the event.
'Jt was decided that no festival would
be undertaken unless a guarantee list
aggregating $10,000 was secured—1(X>
guarantors at $100 each. As in all locally
guaranteed attractions, no guarantor is
called on for anything unless there hap
pens to be a deficit and then the amount
of the deficit is prorated.

Toward Maintenance of
Southern Offices
GEORGE A. BELLAMY
SPEAKS AT LUNCH
Many Interested in Movement Hear
Him—Settle Will Come Here
About April 1—Exum In
dorses the Movement
Birmingham will furnish $2000 toward the
maintenance of the southern headquar
ters of the National Playground associa
tion here, according to action taken at 1
o’clock yesterday afternoon, at which an
address was delivered by George A. Bel
lamy, representative of the association,
who is here to establish such a headquar
ters.
The luncheon yesterday was held in the
annex of the Gold JAon tea rooms in the
Brown-Marx building, and was attended
by over 50 men and women of the city
who a!*e interested in this line of work.
Mr. Bellamy was the principal speaker,
dealing with the general activity of play
ground work such as will be done by
George Settle, the playground expert of
Newr York city, who will be placed in
charge of the southern headquarters to be
established here, lie stressed the increased
efficiency of the work when done under
the guidance of an expert, told of the ;
benefits of the "gang spirit" among all
children as it is fostered and developed
by proper playground systems.
Need New R' tidencr Section
“We need playgrounds as much in the
residence sections of a city as we do in
the congested districts/' exclaimed Mr.
Bellamy, “There absolutely must be an
outlet for the surplus energy and life of a
growing boy or girl whether he is rich
or poor, and if it is not given under
proper conditions and circumstances the
evil which exists in so many citiest will
soon arise in Birmingham. But Birming
ham is now in the building stage, and she
has no really good nor bad habits. By
establishing this work here at this time
the work will grow as the city grows
and both will be benefited.”
Mr. Bellamy then stated that $2000 had
been promised by Birmingham if the
headquarters were established here, and
he asked the citizens of the city to raise
the other $1000, the Chamber of Commerce
having given $1000 Thursday. Hill Fer
guson, chairman of the civic improvement
committe of the chamber, and who was
presiding at the luncheon, then named a
committee of 10 to raise this $1000, each
member of tlie committee to raise $100.
This committee was composed of Mr. Fer
guson, chairman; Robert Jemison, Jr.,
J. D. Moore, C. Exum, Willard J. Wheeler,
C. B. Glenn, Mrs. Joseph McLester, Mrs.
Maboffe H. Cecil, Mrs. C. P. Orr, Mrs. W.
D. Nesbitt and William M. McGrath.
Among the citizens* who made short re
marks were Culpepper Exum, president of
the city commission, who said he spoke
from the standpoint of a citizen and not
as an official of the city when he said
that he was heartily in favor of the es
tablishment of the southern headquarters
of the playground association here, and
that he believed that it would be of an in
estimable benefit to Birmingham in many
different ways.
Jemison Speaks
A.s a member of the park commission
Robert Jemison, Jr., spoke a few words
strongly indorsing the project and stat
ing that the park commission bad been
waiting to do something in this line of
work until sumo such organizing was ef
fected here. He stated that between $3on
and Jiioo was now in the bunds of the
park commission for playground purposes,
but had never been placed to any use be
cause there was no organization of any
kind in Birmingham. This money, be
said, would now be turned over to the man
sene here, to be used on playground work
in Birmingham.
Mr. Bellamy, who is head worker of
Hiram Mfiuse, Cleveland, (>.. is one of
tin foremost playground experts and so
cial workers of the country. He left last
night for Atlanta, thence to Memphis and
points north.
As Mr. Bellamy announced in yester
day morning’s Age-Herald, George .Settle
will be ihe man sent here, and Is expected
to arrive about April 1. ‘ The territory to
b-‘ covered by Mr. Settle with headquar
ters here will extern! from Richroopd. Yra..
to New Orleans, and from the Mississippi
river ea t between these Iwo boundrles.
Other cities of the district will raise
money to hell) support the headquarters,
Richmond alrendy having appropriated
$1»0.
