LETTERS TO EDITOR
Revenue From Convicts
To the Editor of The Age-Herald:
I have read with much interest your
articles on the convict question, and I see
that great stress Is being laid on the
statement made by Mr. Greer of the con
vict department, that the proposed change
from the lease system will entail a loss
of revenue to the state of about $2,000,000
annually.
I have not studied this question, but
have thought about it some, and in pass
ing Speigncrs this morning, the idea sug
gested itself to mo that this $2,0000,000 re
ferred to as loss in revenue was not such
a dreadful thing to contemplate after all.
In the first place I believe that a third or
more of that amount could be saved and
turned into the state treasury by putting
probate judges, sheriffs and other officers
on a fair salary, and abolishing entirely
the fee system. Then from an economical
standpoint alone, I believe tiiat the state
would be more than paid the balance by
the saving in the health and constitution
of the convicts, for the future welfare of
their families and the state as well. The
benefit to counties which would scarcely
ever have good roads otherwise than
through the work of convicts would be
immeasurable, and the returns from tajees
and other increased revenues could pay
a large part of that $2,000,000. Very truly
yours. JOHN P. KOHN.

Approves Gypsy Smith's Work
To the Editor of The Age-Herald.
Referring to the artcile which appeared
in Tuesday’s Age-Herald reporting the
action of the Pastors’ union in reference
to the proposed Gypsy Smith revival, 1
wish to correct any inference in connec
tion with the use of my name, classing
me among those opposed to the coming
of Gypsy Smith to Birmingham. The
motion I made, which was not fully
quoted, was intended to get a definite
expression from the union, and at the
time the mofion was made very few of
the pastors had expressed themselves as
being willing to make a personal canvass
for the amount needed.
1 desire to say that I am most heartily
In favor of Gypsy Smith coming to Bir
mingham. 1 have been through a meet
ing with him and can testify that he
uses no claptrap methods nor anything
else objectionable. J believe he is just
the type of a man needed for this city
and stand ready to contribute my part
and to co-operate with any plan adopted
to bring him here. A. K. WRIGHT.

ANOTHER CANDIDATE
IN RACE NEXT YEAR
Many Friends Throughout
County Urging Senator
Robert E. Spragins to
Run for Governor
By I,. S. BETTY
Huntsville, June 17.—(Special.) —
While Madison county has at present
only one candidate for governdr there
are strong indications that the county
will put another candidate for the of
fice of chief executive of the state in
the person of State Senator Robert K.
Spragins. Casual inquiry of a number
of prominent citizens of Huntsville
this afternoon by The Age-Herald cor
respondent brought out the Information
that many of Senator Spragin’s friends
in tills city and in various parts of the
country are urging him to offer for
governor.
Senator Spragins, however, is non
committal on the subject of bis candi
dacy. He would not admit that there
was a possibility of his becoming a
candidate nor would he say he had
given the matter the least considera
tion. Further than to say that many
of his friends had spoken to him on
the subject of running for governor,
Senator Spragins would not commit
himself. Ho far as could be learned
from him Senator Spragins tyas made
up ills mind neither one way nor tlie
other and therefore will make no state
ment until he has done so.
Senator Spragins has a strong fol
lowing in Madison county who would
like to see him in the office of the j
chief executive of the state and were |
lie to announce his candidacy It is cer
tain that he would make a brilliant
race in this section of the state, not
withstanding the fact that Huntsville
lias another son offering for that of
fice in the person of John H. Wallace,
In the event Madlsoti county should
Jr., state game and fish commissioner!
present two candidates for governor
there is every indication that the voters
here would see an interesting fight,
particularly since two of her citizens
would be aspirants for the same of
fice.
MATHEWS GRANTED
ANOTHER INSPECTOR
Building Operations Furnish More
Work Than Can Be Looked After
With Present Force
Building activities in Birmingham have

more work than the city building inspec
tor's department is able to handle and

hews for an additional inspector. Mr.
Mathews presented a petition to the com
mission In which ho stated that there was
more work than lie and his present force
could handle.

CONSTRUCTION WORK
Thereupon Check of L. S. Scruggs,
Who Made a Mistake in His Bid,
Is Declared Forfeited
A very small matter which has been
a “big” matter to the city commission
ers, came up yesterday when the city 1
officials were informed that W. C. Camp
bell of Columbus, Ga., bad declined the
bid for a small bridge construction on
the Southside.
This matter has been before the com
missioners a half dozen times and they
have spent more time on it than in award
ing some other contracts 50 times as im
portant. The first trouble started when
the lowest bidder, L. S. Scruggs, came be
fore the commission, stated he had made
a mistake, had bid too low and asked to
be released. Scruggs had given two $200
checks as security. He needed'to give
but one. He wanted both returned. The
matter came up two or three times. Fin
ally the commissioners returned one
check, and released Scruggs on the con
dition that the next lowest bidder, Camp
bell, would take the work. Finally Camp
bell refused. He was under no obliga
tions. Now the one check puy up by
Scruggs was declared forfeited at the
meeting yesterday to pay the expenses
of readvertismg and reletting thee ontract.
Tho whole thing involves but a few hun
dred dollars.

GLOBE CIRCLING CLUBS WILL
GET BIG OVATION ON T HE TOUR
Chicago, Juije 17.—A warm welcome In
foreign lands awaits the Chicago White
Sox and the New York Giants, asserted
James A. Hart, former president of the
Chicago Cubs, who returned yesterday
irom a trip around the world, traversing
l>art of the route the globe trotting base
ball teams will follow next winter.
He predicted an enthusiastic reception
nf the ball players in all those nations
which already have shown an interest
In the sport and especially in Japan.
The Philippines, Australia and France
will be touched. Manila will give a great
welcome to the teams, Mr. Hart said.
“So will Australia, if too many games are
not played in a single city. In Japan
baseball is confined mostly to the col
leges. It appeals more to the educated
classes than the rank and flic, however*
so the work there will Do educational
rather than remunerative. There are a
number of leagues in Paris. The deport-'
ment of the players on and off the Held ,
will be most Important, ns the people in
the countries to he visited hardly would
understand the quarrelling with tho um
pires and some of the tricks which are
regarded here as legitimate in abate
ment.“

INQUIRIES ABOUT
MEDICAL COURSE
Indications Are That There Will Be
Large Enrollment at Graduate
School of University
Many inquiries in reference to tho
graduate course in medicine are being
received by the officials of the new
University of Alabama Graduate Med
ical college, which will open in this
city Ootober 1, this year. Indications
are that there will Ire a large enroll
ment in tire graduate school.

be udmitterl to tho undergraduate
courses this year. This Is a matter
which will he worked out by the trus
tees of the state university lat6t'. The
graduate course is open to all comer .
however, and from inquiries already
coming in it is possible tire- authorities
will have to place a limit on the lust
year's class. In time tiro university ex
l>ects to secure additional buildings,!
however, and accommodate many moir
students.
Outside of the one at New Orleans,
this will be tire only graduate school
of medicine in the south and for that
reason it is expected that within a year
or two extra provisions will have to he
made to accommodate lire enrollment.
Dr. George II. Denny has stated that
in ills estimation tiro graduate school
in medicine branch of the university
in this city will fill one of tho prime
edueatlonui needs of Alabama and this
section of the country.
