Will Continue to Occupy Thirtieth Street The city and the Sloss company have agreed. The company will abate the smoke evil of the coke ovens. The com pany will open up Second avenue with reasonable despatch. The company will receive the dedication of an unused part of Third avenue. The company will also remain unmolested in its occupancy of Thirtieth street Within ten years the company will rededicate to the city the vacancies executed at this time. With this agreement the slag pile and oven controversy ends. The offer made the city which was ac cepted from Adrain Larkin of New York, representing the company, follows: "Birmingham, Ala., March 18, 1913. "To the Board of Commissioners, City of Birmingham. "Gentlemen: Referring to the written proposition I made to you yesterday and to the objections thereto you pointed out at the hearing you were good enough to accord the representatives of the Sloss Sheffield Steel and Iron company today. Herewith I submit an amended proposi tion which includes the changes in the original proposition you directed to bo made at the conference today: "Referring to the conference which you have been .good enough to have with i epresentatives of the Sloss-Shefflelrt Steel and Iron company, and in compli ance with your request that I make to you a proposition that I can recommend to the board of directors and one which I believe they will sanction, I desire to submit to you for your consideration the following: Pqsition of Commission "As I understand it, the position of the commissioners is as follows; "(1) You hold that the operation of the coke ovens is a public nuisance. "(2) That the Sloss company is occu pying portions of Fifth avenue, and por I lions of Second avenue, without title thereto, and that there lias been a legal dedication of these avenues over 39 years ago; and that you desire us to vacate Second avenue and to remove any ob structions that we may have placed thereon and on First avenue. "As you are aware, various suits have been brought against the Sloss-Sheffield Steel and Iron company by different property owners, seeking to oust the company from its use and occupation of Thirtieth street, Second avenue and Third avenue. "It has been represented to you on various occasions that the opening of Thirtieth street through our plant, and the opening of Second avenue through our slag pile, without som~ provision laing made for the use of the company’s property north of Second avenue, will practically amount to a destruction of t the company’s plant. i "The company is naturally desirous of preventing the closing down of U*is plant, and is anxious to continue its ©p I eration, and is willing, in order to in j sure the continued operation of the plant, to waive whatever legal rights it nicy have in Second avenue, in order to meet the views of the commission. Therefore, to this end, I shall recommend to the board of directors, at a meeting already called, to be held on Thursday, March 20, for the purpose of considering thip situation, the following suggestions for acceding to your contention: Company’s Proposals “(1) The company recognizes that the extraordinary growth of Birmingham nmkes it desirable, and to the Interests of the community that it cease operating the coke ovens, and it is willing, under the conditions hereinafter mentioned, to cease such operations eft these coko ovens from and after the first of Janu ary, 1014, or sooner, provided it is able in a shorter time to build an additional battery of ovens elsewhere and connect them, up, so as to give a continuous sup ply of coae at the city furnaefts. •2. Tho company is willing further to make an absolute dedication of Thirtieth street from the north side of First avenue to the right of way of tlie Louisville and Nashville Railroad company, and to remove, obstructions therefrom, and to make an absolute dedication of Second avenue through l its slag pile, and remove the slag from said avenue, if it may have a reasonable time, and in any event, until January 1, 1014. in which so to do; provided you will give it the right to cross Sec jond avenue at grade and by an over head bridge (enabling slag to be car fried from the furnace to the company's property north of Heod’nd avenue); ami further, you will, when the proper pe tition or petitions are presented for the purpose by the abutting property owners required by law, consent to the vacation of Thirtieth street between First avenue and the right of way of tlie Alabama threat Southern Railroad company, about a block in length, and to the vacation, of Third avenue be tween the right of way of the Louis ville and Nashville Railroad company and the right of way of the Belt Rail road company, about a block in length, and to the vacation of the intervening alleys between First avenue and Third avenue, east of the right of way of the Louisville and Nashville Railroad com pany. Conditions Imposed “You may Impose as a condition to consenting to the vacation of this street, this avenue and these alleys the following: If at any time the Sloss Sheffleld Steel and Iron company, or any grantee company, or any person taking title through it, ceases to use the property for a blast furnace, that, thereupon, upon the demand of the city, the Sloss-Sheffleld Steel and Iron com pany, or its grantee, or any one claim ing title under it, will forthwith exe cute a formal dedication of Thirtieth street, Third avenue, and Intervening alleys between First and Third avenues iso far as it is affected by your actions: and the further condition as to Third avenue: That at any time after the ex piration of 10 years from this date, upon the demand of the city, the Sloss-Shef flcld Steel and Iron company, or Us grantee, or any one claiming title un der it, will forthwith execute a formal dedication of: said Third avenue, so far us it Is affected by your action; and the foregoing conditions may take the form of covenants running with the ;and. It Is understood, however, that the com-, pany shall reserve the right 10 cross Third avenue at grade and by an over THOUSANDS OF BIRMINGHAM BOOSTERS TO LEAVE CITY BY AID OF “UNCLE SAM” GETTING READY FOR POSTCARD DAY Assistant Secretary W. B. Everett of the Chamber of Commerce and a corps of more than a dozen cirls putting clips on the thousands of postcards yesterday in preparation for Postcard Day today—Photo by the Birmingham View Company. With the able aid of “Uncle Sam” thou sands of Birmingham boosters will leave the city today for all parts of the world. Post Card Day has arrived and It is expected that before tonight every one of the 75.000 cards that have been pre pared will be on its way to some per son outside of Birmingham with its mes sage of civic pride. Some of them no doubt will arrive at their destination late today, others will arrive tomorrow and the next day and gome of them will be probably a week or two in carrying their message to some far distant, per son, informing him or her of how much is being missed by not being a citizen of Birmingham. Post Card Day domes but once a year in Birmingham and from indications at the Chamber of Commerce yesterday the people of the city are going to make the most of it. Work as hard as they could, the large force of girls, hired for that especial purpose, could merely keep ahead of the demands of the constant stream of persons wiitch flowed into the cham ber headquarters yesterday and request- . ed cards. It is expected that long before tonight there will not be a card left in the city. Seventy-five thousand of them were print ed this year and “printed in Birming ham" The card this year is acknowledged to be the most artistic and best arranged of any card made since Post Card Day was inaugurated by the local Chamber of Commerce a couple of years ago. It; is a triple folding card, carrying several | views of the city and district on one side j and on the other a well arranged and easily understood table of figures show ing the commercial and industrial status of the community. Everyone acknowledges that no one could receive the card without looking at it and that no one could look at It and fail to be greatly Impressed with Birmingham, the city which it represents. Every one of the cards is a booster and with 75,000 of them starting to boost in one mighty chorus today the results in civic advertising for Birmingham is be yond even estimation. The cards have been printed, folded and distributed by the Chamber of Commerce free of charge. They are given to any one who will promise to mail them, but not to do so before today, which has been designated Post Card Day by the Cham ber of Commerce specifically for that pur pose. The only duty falling upon the person receiving the card is placing upon them the address and a one cent stamp. With thousands of citizens sending these cards today to their out-of-town friends in all parts of the world, Birmingham boosting stock is expected to know the top out of the market. There is one regulation to be watched in regard to the cards, and that is, that if a ono cent stamp is placed on them they j will go through the mails, providing no message is written on them. For a one cent stamp anyone can send one of the cards to a friend putting on the neces sary address and the sender’s signature. If a message is written on the card that is anything except the address and the signature of the sender, then a two cent stamp will he necessary. In order that many of the cards will not get “hung up” at tlie postoffiee, it is necessary that these regulations be • closely watched. These directions can easily be found on the cards themselves in tlie little square where the stamp is to be placed. T. A. Weller, chairman of the. Post Cord committee of tlie chamber, lias had the event in charge and lie predicted last night that it would be an immense success. The following downtown stores have been designated by Air. Weller as places at which the cards will be dis pensed free of charge today until the supply gives out: Florence Cigar Store, Five Points Phar macy, Gunn Drug company, at Twentieth and Third avenue; Gunn's pharmacy, at Nineteenth street and Third avenue; Brown’s Cigar store, Twentieth and Sec ond; Empire Cigar store, First and Twen tieth; Parker's Drug store, First and Twentieth; Hillman hotel cigar stand. Fourth and Nineteenth; Adams' Drug store. Second and Nineteenth; Barbor & Ramseur Drug store. Fourth and Twen tieth, and T. A. Weller’s office, 219-20 First National Bank building. FIRST POTLATCH BUTTONS RECEIVED IN BIRMINGHAM WILL BE PLACED ON EXHIBIT SHORTLY — POTLATCH GEN ERAL COMITTEE WILL MEET TODAY A nervous, fluttering excitement was noticeable downtown yesterday afternoon but after all rumors had been run to ground it was found that it was caused by the arrival of the first installment of Potlatch buttons. The entire shipment has not arrived, however, and the whirlwind campaign of two days' duration will not be launched until every one of the buttons and hat pins are In Birmingham.

As soon as the entire shipment of the thou sands of buttons are once en route to Birmingham, the meeting of General Pot latch Chairman Oscar C. Turner and about 260 of the “live wires” of the Chamber of Commerce will be held and the selling forces organized for the cam paign. The buttons and hatpins carrying the emblem of the potlatch order are the central feature of the big celebration and joy festival which is to be held April 24 and 25 to celebrate the prosperity of Birmingham. The name “potlatch” was secured from an old custom of the In dians who, in tiie “days of the Red men,” were in the habit of holding similar fes tivals to celebrate good times and called it “the potlatch.” In following out this custom even - thing about the celebration Js to bo “in dianized” as much as possible; especially the last grand event at East Lake park will be staged in Indian costumes and Indian scen&ry, with Indian life portrayed. There is but one idea in the whole fes tival, and that is to celebrate. There are to be no money making schemes, mo no- i I toriety seeking, no seriousness of any! shape or form. It is a festival to cele brate good times and every tiling and everybody will be made as joyous and happy as it is possible to do so. head bridge (enabling slag to be car ried from tlie furnace to the property of the company of Third avenue), upon making the dedication thereof last referred to. .. . •Tt is further understood that the citv mac reserve the right to put sew ers or other public improvements un der the surface of the alleys above named, In such a way, however, as not to interfere with the use by the com pany of said alleys as a dumping piece for slag, or otherwise.

Favor Uniform Width Approximately $80,000 worth of pav ing improvements were authorized By the commission yesterday. The down town section was ordered paved with wood block paving and was awarded to the Southern Wood Block Paving cbmpa\iy, the same concern that is now paving First avenue and Twentieth street. The full list of streets with the price for the work follows: Southern Wood Block Paving com pany— Nineteenth street from First ♦ avenue to Third avenue. ...$ 13,35 l.9u i Seeond avenue from Nine teenth street to Twonty flrst street .. 18.543.60 Morris avenue from Nine teenth street to Twentieth Street .. 4,176.50 Southern Bltullthic com pany— Eighth avenue from Twelfth street to Seventeenth street 17,012.30 Southern Asphalt and < on struction ' company—r Twf nty-fourth street from Eighth avtnue to Twelfth avenue . 13.C30.0o ' Beech street from Highland to Fourteenth street . 2,542.5o Fourteenth avenue from Beech street to Twentieth street. 5,873.50 j Ash street from Fourteenth avenue to Highland avenue. 1,439.50 Total . $79,00 4.90 The commissioners delayed receiv ing bids for Twelfth avenue from Twenty-fourth street to Thirty-second street on account of tin fact that it | was believed that street did not re quire as costly a paving material nor as heavy a one as the remainder of the streets. The contract for that work wilf be awarded later. In all the work let there was only one protest and that was in regard to Twelfth avenue. Two property owners protest ed against the paving of that street. In connection with the boulevard from East Lake to Ensley the city en gineer communicated to the commis sion that three routes were leasable, but that Third avenue along the street railway tracks to Fairvlety as far as West End was concerned seemed to be the most acceptable. The commis sioners went on record as favoring widening the boulevard in such places as needed and making the whole prop osition uniform as to width. It was aujurgosted that such action would ne cessitate some condemnation proceed ings or would cause property owners to make voluntary donations of rights of way. President Exum was request ed to look into that feature of the proposition and report to the commis sion. Mr. Exum told the commission that he believed everyone was in fa vor of the pavement that had been seen and the general scheme was ip high favor. The commission asked Mr. Exum to look into the details of widening the boulevard on either side and such oth er information as was needed prepar atory to letting a contract for the work! The details of the boulevard are de veloping rapidly and It is understood little time will bo lost In beginning this piece of woidc . which will be the most extensive ever begun by the com mission.

SELLER OF LADIES' GARMENTS TAXED MAXIMUM LICENSE Local Merchants Enter Pro test and Collector Boggar Pays Hurried Visit NEW ORLEANS MAN GIVES UP $300 50 Long Line of Automobiles in Front of Hillman and Host of Fashion ably Dressed Women At tracted Attention War was declared yesterday by the com mission on transient salesmen of women'* and men’s garments, when a salesman representing a New Orleans Arm wa« forced to pay $300.60 for doing business here at the Hotel Hillman. The unusual Incident of a large num* her of automobiles belonging to some of Birmingham’s well known people drawn up in front of the Hillman attracted the attention of several wide-awake mer chants of this city. Investigation brought forth the fact that a New Orleans house had sent a trace ling salesman ami a lady assistant up here to sell the ladies of Birmingham ‘nal swell" garments. The attention of 1*: trident Culpepper Kxum was called to the ij'tuatlon by a score of prominent nit : c^::, t:;. That official called In his t- i . lc; r.eutenant, James. J.

Ilis assistant was not bothered nor was tim host of fashionable ladies who called upon the "dispenser of elegance in womens apparel” from New Orleans. The merchants of Birmingham indicated to Mr. Kxum and the other officials that tb* y paid all the bills for the city prac tically ; paid for the improvements, paid out salaries and were institutions her#, and it was manifestly unfair to allow transient persons to stop by here and take away so much money. They were more than usually indignant when It was ascertained that in the Bir mingham^, shops stylo and qualities even surprassing the New Orleans display are obtainable. It was indicated that a sharper look out is to he maintained hereafter upon the various hotels and that those who aro ambitious to supply the Birmingham elite with fashionable clothes will be forced to pay “even as you and I.” BEST F0° MBYSMM CUTICURA SOAP It tends to keep baby's skin dear and healthy, prevents minor erup tions, and establishes a permanent condition of skin and hair health.
