It is said that delay on work at that hotel site has been occasioned by the failure of the American Bridge com pany to fill the Tutwiler hotel order as a great many orders were booked ahead of that one. The officials of the hotel believe that the steel will be here during the next few days and that the construction will proceed rapidly from that time. The construction in the meantime on the Roden hotel is about to the sixth floor and is going higher fast. It is expected that a force of workmen will start on the other construction during the next week as the steel has pro gressed far enough to warrant such action. The Jefferson County bank building steel is being placed rapidly also, while the general foundation construction for the Ridgely apartments, corner Park avenue and Twentieth street, is almost completed.

OFFICE AT CUBA Rapid Increase in Work Forces Faithful Official to Retire Cuba, March 25 —(Special)—After round ing out 20 years of faithful service as postmaster, H. H. Andrews, an ex-Con federate (fe,eran who lost an arm at Chancellorsville, Va„ has tendered his resignation effective as soon as his suc cessor can be appointed and qualified, and not later than May 15. It is doubtful if there is a postmaster in all the state who has made the record that the present Incumbent has. Time after time he has been checked up and rated as "excellent'’ and during his long term not a penny of government funds have been misplaced, not a register has been misplaced, nor a money order made wrong. Mr. Andrews states that ne nas neen compelled to resign because of the rapid Increase In the work in the past few months, which has necessitated his hav ing to employ a clerk and pay him out of his own salary. It is pointed out that every department of Ihe government was given help as a result of the parcel post except fourth class offices. The public feels disappointment that the Congress did not allow something to the smaller offices, and general regret is felt that this worthy, one-armed hero of a bloody battle field must give up his means of support because the govern ment will not give him lie' 1 do the work. Aside from vice as postmaster, Mr. Andrews has been secretary of Western Star lodge, A. F. & A. M. 222, for about 40 years. Married in Opelika Opelika, March 25.—(Special.f)—Pro bale Judge J. M.

Up to tonight 18 members of the House had notified Representative William H. Hinebaugh of Illinois, the active leader in the organization plan, that they would attend the proposed conference, at which Representative Victor Murdock is to be made the pro gressive choice for speaker. The attitude of many of those pro gressive republicans denominated “near progressives" by Colonel Roosevelt has not yet been determined. A partial canvass of many of those wiio have been prominent in the ranks of tiie insurgent republican forces for the last two Congresses but who are not officially members of the new pro gressive party, showed today that tiie -majority of them had not decided whether they would take part in the progressive conference. Apply for Recognition \ While the progressives, as represent ed by Mr. Hinebaugh, have applied di rect to Democratic Leader Underwood for recognition as a separate party in the distribution of committee places, the progressive republicans still are dependent upon the regular republican organization, of which Representative Mann of Illinois is the leader. Some strength was added to the progressive organization plans today by the rumor that tlie republican leaders were in clined to withdraw come of the choice committee places from the progressive republican members. . The date for the conference or "open caucus” of progressives, originally set for April 2, was changed today to April 4. Representative Hinebaugh will go to New York within a few days for a conference witli Colonel Roose velt. The latter Is expected to send a personal message to the progressive gathering. A portion of his recent bet ter to Mr. Hinebaugh, made public to day. follows: "Mr. Dear Mr. Hinebaugh—Good for you. I am more than pleased with what you have done. It would he an admirable thing to run Victor Murdock as our candidate for the speakership and I hope that, as you have suggested to him. as he will announce himself as willing to accept the nomination of the progressives for this position. Should Act Together "Then I think it would be a good thing for tlie progressive party that our men should act together and should consult one another freely and in addi tion that they should keep in closest touch with near progressives so as to act substantially on the same lines, with the idea that they might ulti mately join with us. We should go ahead with our own organization as a separate distinct national * party.” Will Move to Enterprise Ozark. March 25.—(Special.)—Ozark re grets to lose H. M.
