VOLUME XXXXIII BIRMINGHAM, ALABAMA, WEDNESDAY, JUNE 11, l!ll.’, , 14 PAGES NUMBER M CARTER AND BALLOU i TESTIFY ffiFORE THE LOBBY COMMITTEE — Agree That $100,000 Spent in Campaign Against Free Sugar i BALLOU REGULAR AGENT OF INTERESTS Taid Yearly Salary of $12,000 and Allowed $3000 for Expenses—Cor roborates the Evidence Given by Carter Washington, June 10.—For six hours to day former Governor Carter and Sidney Ballou, two of tha men who have con ducted the fight of Hawaiian producers in Washington to retain a duty on sugar, outlined to the Senate lobby investigating committee their activities here and else where. Governor Carter testified that he was paid nothing and received only his ex penses. Mr. Ballou said he was the‘regu lar agent of the sugar producers in Wash ington, with a salary of $12,000 a year and $3000 a year for expenses. Bothyagreed that about $100,000 had been spent by the sugar people in their cam paign against free sugar, but denied there had been any tangible combination be tween the United States cane and beet and Hawaiian cane producers with a common fund directed to influencing legislation. The session at times grew warm. Sharp Cross-Examination Senators Walsh and Reed put Governor Carter through a sharp cross examina tion, under which the witness appeared fully able to take care of himself. He declared that an audience with President Wilson for the Hawaiian sugar men had been denied by Secretary Tumulty, and that a member of the Senate finance sub committee in charge of sugar had sug gested that they be given a hearing “after the passage of the bill.” Mr. Ballou said later that Senator Gore had made this statement. Governor Carter said that three sena tors, Swanson, Lewis and Williams, hud told him or Hawaiian friends that they were net in sympathy with free sugar, but since it was d&vocated by the demo cratic party they must vote for It. He declared that he had got no satisfaction when he spoke of hearings to members of the cabinet, congressmen and senators. A Legislative Matter “Secretary Lane told me,” he said, “that It whs a legislative matter and the ad ministration nad nothing to do with it. I called up here and they told me that it was executive matter and they had noth ing to do with it. “I’m a ‘bull mooser.’ “ lie «aid in. re sponse to an nquiry by Senator Cumming us to his politics. Mr. Ballou’s testimony was largely cor roborative of that given by Governor Car ter. Senator Reed so worded a question at one time as lo arouse the criticism of Senator Nelson. “You can’t dictate his answer for him,” said Mr. Nelson; “this isn’t a police court.” “No, but It ought to be a place where gentlemen are present acting as gentle men,” returned Senator Reed. Chairman Overman rapped for order and the inci dent ended. Senator Reed asked Ballou if the Ha waiian planters wfere not anxious for a return of the penal labor system. He | read a statement to this effect from what he said w^as a “suppressed ” report by Daniel J. Keefe, former commissioner of immigration. “There are about a* many gentlemen (Continued on Peg, Ten) RATE CASEDELAYED Decisions Anxiously Await ^ ed by Interstate Com merce Commission Washington, June 10.—Absence from to day’s session of the supreme court of Justice Hughes, who Is understood to be preparing decisions in most of the Missouri, Arkansas, Oregon, Kentucky and West Virginia railroad rate cases, caused final action in these cases to go over until the last decision day, June 16. j Just before, the court convened a ru mor arose that a dissenting opinion in the Minnesota rate cases ,would be an nounced. The court had adjourned yes terday immediately after Justice Hughes concluded announcing the court’s deci sion. None was forthcoming, however. Decision of the remaining rate rases Is awaited as likely to throw additional light on the methods of valuing railroad property for rate making purposes, a sub ject dealt with in the Minnesota cases. All the decisions are being awaited anx iously by the interstate commerce coin-; misHoion, which is launching forth on » the task of making a physical valuation of all the railroad property in the United States. On account of the widespread public in terest In the Minnesota decision the Sen ate ordered the printing of 10,000 copies as public documents. Bishop Traveled in Steerage Because It Was His Duty, He Says REV. DR. C. H. BRENT Simplicity is the motto of the Right Rev. Charles Henry Brent, bishop of the Protestant Episcopal diocese of the Philippine Islands. That’s the reason he came to America recently, from Liverpool in the steerage of the Caronia instead of the first cabin, as churchmen have done since time out of mind. “It was my duty to come that way.’’ elInatIof. CLAUSE IS URGED Would Exact Additional Duties on Certain Imports Sold in United States. Amendment Proposed Washington, June 10.—Elimination of the anti-dumping clause *of the Underwood tariff bill, which would exact additional duties on imports &okl in this country at less than the foreign market price was recommended today by the Senate finance sub committee in charge of the adminis trative features of the measure. This clause as it passed the House was not extended to articles on the free list and was objected to by the Senate leaders on the ground tat it was discriminatory, i It was first proposed that the provision be amended to include the free list, but this was finally abandoned, many senators concluding that the clause was impracti cable and that it would preciiptate retalia tory action by foreign nations which would be disadvantageous to the extension of American trade in the markets of the world. The clause would provide that goods sold here at less than the foreign price* | should l»e dutiable at a rate equal to «he difference between the consignment and home market price, goods dutiable at 50 per cent or more to be exempt. Recommendation Not Passed The recommendation to eliminate the1 provision has not yet been passed on by the majority members of the finance com mittee, but it will come up together with the recommendation to eliminate the pro vision granting a 5 per cent duty discount on goods imported in American owrned or j controlled vessels, to which objection was ^ made by foreign nations. Another provision objected to by foreign countries which would require foreign manufacturers to submit their books in oases of valuation disputes, is certain to be modified if not stricekn from the bill. The majority members of the commit tee began today consideration of subcom mittee reports and ratified changes in the chemical and lumber schedules which ma terially enlarge the free list. All cedar lumber Is placed on the free list instead of being dutiable at 10 per cent, and slight Continued on Page Ten.) FFAIRS IS ASKED Both Houses of Congress Take Up Railroad Situation Washington, June 10.—Affairs of the St. Louis and San Francisco railroad, now in receivers’ hands, were the subject of at tack in both houses of Congress today. The Senate, through the passage of the Kenyon resolution, called on the interstate commerce commission to Investigate the affairs of ttie road and furnish complete information as to its relations with the Chicago and Has tern Illinois railroad and as to the extent and present ownership of Its bonds and other securities. A demand for a special investigation by a committee of Congress was made in the House by Representtaive Hlnebaugli of Illinois, in a resolution asking for a thoi ougli probe of the road's operations. The Hlnehaugh resolution would direct tiio commission to recommend a law to govern the reorganization or railroads generally. During consideration of the Kenyon resolution Senator Newlands said mem bers of the interstate commerce eommis 'sion would welcome the opportunity to go into the affairs of the bankrupt road. "I hope the interstate commerce commis sion will take up the greater question of the control of the issuing of securities und the supervision of holding companies and will recommend a law that will estab lish proper restraints,” he said. CROPS BADLY DAMAGED BY UNSEASONABLE WEATHER Washington, June 10.—Officials of the ^ department of agriculture believe that j there now is widespread damage to crops j as the result of the unseasonably cold weather now prevailing over much of the country. ' Experts today expressed the opinion that there need be no fear of a fruit or vegetable famine, and said that despite predictions of the weather bureau that the cool spell will continue for the next 30 hours, probably no great harm Would be done to the corn and other crops. Early spring planting and the favorable conditions of these crops are counted upon to offset any efTect that the weather may have. The lowest temperature reported to the weather bureau was from the cranberry district of New Jersey, where a minimum of 29.5 degrees was recorded last night. Temperatures below the freezing point were reported to the weather bureau from centra lPennsylvanla and points In New Jersey. Frosts were general through out the mountains of Virginia and Mary land. PUBLICITY LAW IS HELD TO BE VALID BY SUPREME COURT Law Requires Sworn State ment of Daily Circula tion of Publications MUST GIVE NAMES OF EDITORS, ETC. " l Nearly 88 Per Cent of Newspapers Already Comply With the I ^aw, Claim Law Seeks to “Regu late Journalism” Washington, June 10.—The validity of the “newspaper publicity” law, enacted in 191*2 as a provision of the postal appropriation act, was upheld today by unanimous de cision of the supreme court of the United States court. Chief Justice White an nounced the court's conclusions. This law requires every newspaper, magazine or other publication to file semi annually with tlie Postmaster General and the local postmaster sworn statements of the names of the editors, managers, own ers, stockholders and bondholders, and in the case of daily newspapers of the aver age daily circulation. Publication of these statements is required, and for failure to comply with any of the provisions the publication shall be denied the “privileges of the mail.” A second paragraph pro vides that paid for editorial or reading matter of any “such” publication shall be marked “advertisement” under penalty of a fine or imprisonment.” Many Enter Protest About 88 per cent of the newspapers al ready have complied with the law, many under protest. The Lewis Publishing com pany and the Journal of Commerce and Commercial Bulletin of New York led the attack upon the statute, bringing suits for injunction in the federal district court ol southern New York. When the law was upheld there they appealed to the highest court. They claimed that the law sought to '“regulate journalism” and to enforce a censorship of the press. In reply Former Solicitor General Bullitt contended that, notwithstanding a division of the provision into two typographical paragraphs by the Senate, after the meas ure was passed by the House, the law was only on paragraph, imposing conditions upon the use of low second class mail rates accorded newspapers and magazines. The supreme court today adopted Mr. Bullitt's interpretation. The use in the act of the word “entered,” a technical word employed only as to second class mail matter, showed, Chief Justice White held, that Congress in passing the law had in mind only the second class mail, and not the right to use the mail as a whole. A Positive Reference The use of the words "privileges of the mail," tiie chief justice took to be a positive reference to the second class of mail because of the great advantages newspapers were granted under the sec ond class over other classes of mail in order to promote the "dissemination of current intelligence." He said Congress did not intend to exclude papers not com plying with the provisions from the use of the mail other than the second class. The second paragraph, It was explained, was but a part of the first, as shown by the use of the word "such," an additional penalty being prescribed for administra tive reasons only. The legislative history of the provision, the chief justice declared, upheld the in terpretation of the words given by the court. After Interpreting the provlsiorjirffas imposing conditions upon the use of the second class mail, the chief jus tice proceeded to discuss why Con gress had the right to impose such conditions. Favor of Newspapers A study of postal laws from colonial days to the present, he said, showed a persistent adhesion to a policy of dis crimination in favor of newspapers in the mails. He quoted Mr. Bullit as stating letter mall was subjected to a charge 80 times higher than news papers and that letter mall produced an annual profit of $70,000,000, while the newspaper class entailed a $70, 000,000 annual loss on the government. As a further discrimination, he said, individuals must pay a higher rate for mailing newspapers than the publishers or news agents. In return for this discrimination the chief Justice declared Congress had the right to fix the standard to be mot by those who wished to enjoy the prlv lliges. As far back as 1887 rules were promulgated for those who desired to enjoy the privileges of the cheap rates. He suggested that the court could not bring its mind to the conclusion that the newspaper attorneys were as sailing a classification of mails with certain conditions attached to some classes as an interference with the free dom of the press, when for a long se ries of years, legislation had specially favored the press to its pecuniary ben efit by classification. The conclusion reached was that the conditions ex acted were Incidental to the privileges conferred upon the newspapers and were not arbitrary. Sums Up Contentions After citing section 2 of the poet office appropriation act of August 24, 1!»12, Chief Justice White summed up the contentions of the publishers, who attacked the constitutionality of the law as follows: “1. The constitution has not either under the post roads clause or else where delegated t(* the federal gov ernment the power (1) to compel these disclosures, and 12) to direct their publication, or (3) to coiqped paid read ing matter to be marked as an ad vertisement. "2. The constitution not only failed to give such power but it expressly forbade It by the first amendment, pro hibiting any law abridging the free dom of the press.” ”3. The requirement that a fr*e class of newspapers shall disclose to the pub lic by publication the most Intimate details of their business, and use their own capital, labor facilities and valua ble space for such disclosure, is .a tak ing of •liberty' and ‘property’ without due process of law, and a like taking of valuable property rights for an as sumed public use without Just compen sation.” On the other hand, putting aside what the court deemed to be minor sub divisions. all the contentions of the government were reduced to the fol lowing. "(A) That the assailed provision in no sense can be.considered as an at tempted exertion of power to regulate the freedom of the press or even as the exercise of the legislative authority 4,Cea«laMd oa Page Eight) SENATORS ON MINE PROBE COMMITTEE REACH CHARLESTON Examine Records of Pro ceedings Prior to Declara tion of Martial Law • MINE OPERATORS ARE UNPREPARED Lengthy Preliminary Statements Filed With Committee—Both Are Pleas of “Not Guilty” and Deny in Toto the Charges Made Charleston, W. Va., June 10.—The power and authority of the government came to West Virginia today to deter mine who is responsible for the condi tions which have kept the state in vir tual civil war for more than a year. Opening the investigation of the coal mine strike which has dealt death and destruction in the Point Creek and Cabin Creek mining sections, the Senate mine strike investigating committee tonight called upon the military authorities for the records of the proceedings prior to and under the declaration of martial law in the strike territory. Judge Advocate General George S. Wal lace, Adjutant General Charles I). El liott, Major James I. Pratt, Captain Charles K. Morgan and Captain Samuel L. Walker were summoned before the committee this evening to produce the state records regarding the dec laration of martial law, and the proceed ings of the military committee which was placed in authority in the strike dis trict. Senator Borah of Idaho, desired their testimony and their records as the basis for the branch of the inquiry which lie is conducting as to the charge that citizens have been “arrested, tried and convicted in violation of the consti tution and the law of the United States." Records of Excerpts Opeing his ease under the section of the Senate resolution authorizing the in vestigation which directs an inquiry into this subject Senator Borah, at a brief session of the committee this afternoon, lead into the record several excerpts from the constitution of West Virginia. The first was the provision declaring that the constitution of the state and of the United States shall always be in ef fect. The second provision declared, that under no circumstances shall the right of habeas corpus be denied. The third was the usual provision that no citizens shall be deprived of life, liberty or property without due process of laws. The fourth, set forth that the military authority shall not supersede the civil powers, even un der the plea of necessity, and others pro vided for trial lby jury in open court for all criminal offenses. The activities of the state authorities ir. connection with the strike will be probed by the committee, in view of these consti tutional guarantees, and the charge that the mine workers have not been ac corded their full rights will be investi gated with these provisions in mind. Formidable Counsel Array Neither the attorneys for the mine operators nor the workers were prepared to begin the examination of witnesses when the committee opened its hearing this afternoon, and the first witness was not called until the committee met to night. A formidable array of counsel was on hand, however. Two lengthy preliminary statements! were filed with the committee by attor- j neys for the operators. The first was j filed for the operators generally, and the! second for the Paint Creek Colleries com pany. Both were pleas of “not guilty" and both denied in detail and in toto the charges made In the resolution passed by the Senate authorizing the inquiry. The operators in their brief made the counter charge that the United Mine Workers of America, in its attempts to “organize* the coal mines in tlie West Virginia field was responsible for the violence which has characterized the strike. “We know of no system of peonage and believe none exists or has been prac ticed in the fields,” said the brief. An investigation by the department of jus tice found no such system, it held. Spe cific denials were made that the postal j service had been interfered with, that the immigration laws hud been violated and that the rights of citizens had been violated. “On the question of the trials of cit izens under martial law the brief defend ed former Governor Glasscock for de claring martial law and Governor Hat field for continuing it. Situation a “Terrible One" “The situation confronting the governor on September 2, 11*12,'' said the brief, “was a terrible one; rarely since the days of 1861-66 has the executive of an American i state had to face and act under similar circumstances.” The proceedings under martiul law, the j brief held, had been declared legal by the supreme court of appeals of the state. 1 The operators declared they expect to prove that a conspiracy exists in wfiich the United Mine Workers are the active1 parties for diminishing the competitive ability of West Virginia coal in the mar ket and that the troubles in the Paint Creek and Cabin Creek fields “are the direct result of such conspiracy.” The operators declared they also ex-1 peet to prove that nrearms and ammu nition was brought into the state for use in acts of lawlessness and violence de signed to keep the Paint Creek and Cabin Cre$k mines idle until the l nited Mine Workers of America should he recognized. The statement presented by the Paint Creek Colleries company made similar denials and similar charges. The committee called on Governor Hat field. who said he would aid the investi gators in any way possible, and expressed a desire that the investigation be full and complete. Former Governor Glasscock will ap pear before the committee on Thursday. BUSY SESSION OF THE PARDON BOARD HELD Montgomery, June 10.—(Special.)—Mem bers of the state pardon board were in session nearly ail of today upon the consideration of a large number of ap plications for clemriey. The pardon boat 4 had one of the busiest sessions it has held in several months, a large number of people app wring before it in behalf of those seeking pardon. The governor's waiting room was crowded the greater part of the morning with frienrlB and relatives of convicts seeking clemency, the crowd being so large and congested that the governor was compelled to spare only a few minutes of his time to those wishing to so him He was kept busy the entire morning seeing those inter ested in paroles and when the last caller had left his iff ice he immediately as sembled the S'ato normal school board in annual session.

THE HOME RULE BILL PASSES END READING Passage Marked by Heated Debates by Opposition Speakers London, June 10.—The house of com mons tonight passed the second reading of the home rule for Ireland bill with out division, an amendment by Mr. Bal four for the rejection of the measure having been previously defeated 308 t«» 270. The announcement of the figures w-as received with cheering by liberal and nationalists. The debate was marked by fierce decla rations by the opposition speakers who predicted the imposition of home rule would result in civil war in Ireland. Sir Edward Carson, the Irish unionist leader, said: “For my part I will continue to sup port the Ulster men and will take full responsibility for their resistance. You may seize their arms or send troops, but you will not settle the Irish question. You know that you are crowing about peace when there is no peace and you will fail in your object." Lord Charles Beresford declared: "If the government sends t roops to 1 reland I shall offer my services, poor as they may be, and help my fellow country men." John E. Redmond, the Irish nationalist leader, said Bir Edward Carson had taken upon himself grave responsibility and did pot represent Ulster’s opinion. The na tionalists were willing to make any con cessions, “But.’’ added Mr. Redmond, “twenty-four counties will not allow themselves to be intimidated by four.” Denies Bargain Andrew' Bonar Law, opposition leader, said that if there were a bargain be tween the government and the national ists the House ought to know. Mr. Red mond denied the existence of a bargain and Premier Asquith supported the de nial. Mr. Law continued: “The government is compelling the whole unionist parly to take tiie side of Ulster. If the gov ernment forces the bill through under present conditions it will he a self con stituted revolutionary committeee and Ul ster can only meet revolution by counter revolution.” The bill now enters the suggestive stage •before Its inevitable rejection by the lords. Sir Edward Carson, after the passage of the bill, said the Irish unionist members would refuse to take part in any fur ther discussion because their suggestions would certainly he rejected. Those mem bers, in a body, will tour the principal cities in England and Scotland, hold ing meetings to protest against the bill. The nationalists are downhearted at the possibility th&t the government will not last for the third passage of the bill, necessary to make it a law.

Surgeons believe the trans planted bone will till all the Ainctions of the vertebrae destroyed by a tubercular Infection. # * STOCKS IN THROES OT LIQUIDATION Quotations Lowest of Any Reached Since Panic of 1907 New York, June 10.—The stock market was again in the throes of liquidation to day. Many representative securities de clined 3 to points and more in some in stances. The impelling cause was the de cision of the United States supreme court in the long? delayed Minnesota rale case, which was handed down after the close | yesterday’s mark* •*. The violent opening here war preceded by materially lower prices in London, where Union Pacific registered a decline of over 3 points. Next in point of weak ness abroad were the Hill issues, which were most directly affected by the decision of the supreme court. Lowest prices here were reached at mid day. after which supporting orders were effective In stemming the downward movement. Buying of an investment char acter also was a factor, the demand for “odd lots” suggesting the reappearance of the bargain hunter. Final prices were decidedly above the lowest of the day, save in (lrc.it Northern preferred, North ern Pacific, Union Pacific, Lehigh Valiev and a few other shares, which continued to reflect selling pressure. With few' exceptions today's quotations were the lowest >f any reached since the panic of 1907. while some went lower tha i in that period. A noteworthy feature was the absence of any bill prices for many stocks after the ch se. No small part of the market's ills Is at tributable to the demoralized state of toe foreign markets and further trouble from those sources is predicted.

VAUNTED ENGLISH POLO TEAM FALLS BEFORE AMERICANS Britishers Outridden and Outplayed in Opening Game of Match TOUTED TEAMPLAY FAILS TO SHOW American Defenders Easily Show Superiority to English Players and Win by Score of 5'/j (Joals to 3 Meadow brook Club. Long Island, June H*.—Outriding and outplaying the English polo challengers the American cup de fending team today won the opening game of the sixth international match by a score of 5*4 goals to 3. The English Flayers did not show the vaunted team play which had been credited to them before the game, noj did their ponies outclass the American mounts. In fact, the reverse was quite the case and in almost every run down field the Amer ican “ players either held their own or outrode their competitors in the race for the hall. The combination work of the American four with Larry Waterbury at No. 1. J. M. Waterbury, Jr., and L. E. Stoddard at No. 2, Captain H. P. Whithey at No. 3 and Devereaux Mllburn at back, was superb. The challenging team, consisting of Captain L. St. George Cheape at No. 1, Captain A. Noel Edwards at No. 2, Cap tain R. G. Ritson at No. 3 and Captain Vivian Lockett at back, appeared unable to work together consistently, due in all probability, to the close “covering” of the Americans. Odds Not Warranted Hardly had the game begun before it was seen that the wagering odds of s to & on tin Kiigtisn were not warranted, for the “big four” carried the play into the English end of the field and kept the cavalry office rt> busy defending their goal. The drives of the Americans were made with excellent direction and length and they never appeared to have difficulty in 1 looking the ball out of scrimmage. The Englishmen wore apparently stunjied by the fierceness of the cup defender's attack and failed to hold together in team work. The three goals scored in the first period went to the United States and it was until the second period that the English tour got going. Ritson and Cheape cut loose with some i c*markable long drives and the Invaders began to team up in fushion that proved threatening. The work of Cuptain Lockett at back was remarkable in view of the j attack piled at him. Larry Waterbury j was playing a rushing game and id* encounters with Edvards and Cheape ! were frequent and thrilling. Finally, lie I wit:, ptuiali'/ed h r tiding across Cheape, who had just secured England’s first goal with a fine shot from a hard angle. Larry Waterbury scored the American [ goal in tills period. English Are Rushed The English four were rushed hard by the defenders early In the third period and Larry Waterbury scored for the Americans in 31 seconds. The ball was carried up and down the field without a score the remainder of the period. The fourth say the Americans miss ing several easy chances to score and Captain Cheape also failed from a clear field: The only goal of the period was scored by Larry Waterbury, which he partly nullified by a foul in crossing Cap tain Ritson. The fifth period saw the English at their host. Captain Ritson scored with a lofting shot which the Americans were unable to • i each, and Captain Cheape followc I with a 7c-yard stroke, which had ,ust enough momentum to carry it through tin goto pods. The succeeding session proved disas trous for the defenders for “Monte" Waterbury was hit on the hand by an opponent’s mallet and his finger broken in two places. He will not be able to play in Saturday’s game. Open riding and Individual play marked tin* seventh period in which no goal was scored. The Ameri an team, however, lost half ! a point because of a cross by Milburn. Ill the final period the English kept the ball m tin* \merlcan territory for sev ere 1 minutes, but Stoddard finally cleared j it ami in a run down field paved the I way »• Larry Waterbury to score the j litial goal of the game. I " Unfilled Tonnage of the Steel Corporation ___ New York, June 10.—The unfilled tonnage of the I'nited States Steel corporation as of May 31 was 6,324,322 tons, a decrease of i*>4.410 tons as compared with the previous months. The decrease, which was considerably larger than was expected. Is following the llrst of the year’s statements, and is the hfth issued. The tonnage is the lowest since July 31, 1912. O’NEAL ALLOWS PRISONER TO VISIT HIS DYING WIFE Grants Thirty Day Parole to Cullman County White Man. Other Paroles and Pardons Granted to Peni tentiary Inmates Montgomery• Juno 10.—(Special.)—In or der that he might go home to attend his dying wife, in the last stages of her ill ness, Governor O’Neal Tuesday afternoon granted a 30 days' parole to Marlon Gib son, a white man of Cullman county, who was sent up last year to serve five years in the penitentiary for manslaugh ter. The petition for a 30 days' parole was recommended by influential citizens of Cullman, and was approves! by the i pardon board. Another brief parole was granted to Ves Collins, who was sent up from Clay ! county in 1912 to serve two years for embezzlement. Collins was allowed to go home to wait on an ill sister. The governor granted a full parole and | fardon to Habbard Jones, a negro of] Lowndes county, was was sent up in 1908 to serve 20 years for muffler. Jones re cently had both hands burned off, and on account of his helpless condition he was pardoned. A 80 days’ respite was granted Steve Cheney, a negro of Choc taw. who was under sentence to be hanged June 13. A respite was granted in order that some additional evidence might be secured in the case. The gov ernor paroled John Ellison of Chilton county, who was sent up in 1913 for grand larveny. Sheriff H. L. Jones of Chilton county is made the personal agent of Kllison, and he is required to report once a month to the governor on the paroled prisoner’s conduct. Other paroles were granted to Lawyer Williams of Wilcox county, sent up in 1912 to serve three years for manslaugh ter, and to Dudley B. Jackson, who waa sent up from Clarke county in 1911 to serve three years for tmbezziemont.
