By CLYDE W. ENNIS rl here*have been few business moves in Birmingham so convincing that, Bir mingham is unaffected by any alleged commercial depression as the price ?Hii*l for the Peerless corner by Frank Nelson, Jr., as announced yesterday morning. lie is known as a Wise and cautious not to say ultra-conservative business man. It is a. rare occasion when such a type of business man in vests in real estate at such figures when times are dull or look bad. The sale therefore at this time will have a very buoyant tendency in local real estate circles and will undoubtedly af fect many trades that are now pend ing but which have been held up by prospective but cautious buyers. The pace set by Mr. Nelson is expected to have a very tine effect on local real estate activities. , The price paid is the highest ever paid in this state for land. The iot is only 25 feet on Second avenue by IPO feet deep. It has no alley open ing but stands on the corner of Second and Twentieth street. For the frontage the price paid Is the very top notch in local trades. Few southern cities can point to such a record. The land ! brought $7000 per front foot. Mr. Baugh when he bought it from the It. D. Burnett Cigar company paid $5800 per frontvfoot, while Mr. Burnett when he secured it from the Peoples bank paid $4 400 per front foot. The price has therefore almost doubled since the Peo ples bank sol^ It In 1911. A. A.

BY THE|PEAKERS Boycott Against Company Declared at Union Mass Meeting Yesterday There was considerable bitterness and anger In the speeches at the Bijou labor) mass meeting yesterday afternoon. The big theatre was crowded almost to its capacity and the coatless men cheered and perspired as the orators warmed up. The meeting unanimously adopted reso lutions declaring a boycott upon the Bir mingham Hallway, Light and Power com pany by not using its gas. electricity or street cars during the present strike. Ben Davis, White Gibson, Diemen t Wood and William F. Welch were the spell binders. Young Wood started the ex citement by recalling the glories of his career as a socialistic recorder of tlie city of Birmingham; Ben Davis followed witli a passionate review of the local reign of the commission form of government; . Mr. Welch then laboriously retdld the I thrilling account of his abduction, and Mr. Gibson closed the bill by reviewing* the iniquities of tho subsidized press. J. W. Woods, president of the Bir mingham Trades Council, presided. A movement was started to recall City Com missioner A. O. Lane, but postponed for the time being. A general note of defeat in the present street car strike ran through all of the speeches. Kvery man referred time and again to the alleged fact that "No mat ter if we do lose this strike, we have won a great victory for union labor.” It was stated that another mass meeting will be held in the near future. T Only Indication of Strike Was Presence of Police Officer on Each Car Unmindful of mass meetings, strikers and union sympathizers, the 300 or more loyal motormen and conductors of the Birmingham Railway, Light and Power company remained at their posts yester day and street car operations were un impaired. A stranger to Birmingham would scarcely have known that there was any trouble with former street rail way employes here. With the exception of a preponderance of blue coated police officers there was no exterior indication which would lead to the assumption that a strike had been declared. The officials of the Birmingham Rail way, Light and Power company are sat isfied with developments. The great ma jority of their employes have not an swered the call of Organizer Welch and < •his associates. Those who joined the union have not been permitted to get in close touch with street car properties. Mr. Ford, president of the company, as sured the commission yesterday that his company was performing its full duty to the city and its people. He added that if he is given the protection thus far ac corded there will be no trouble in ren dering adequate service. LETTERS TO EDITOR Roosevelt Strength in Alabama To the Editor of The Age-Herald. In your issue of the 20th you say, "There is no large element in Alabama which believes in a political sense as Mr. Roosevelt believes.” You are mis taken I think. With a fair and non partisan election system Roosevelt would have carried this state lust fall. As it was Wilson did not get more than about one-third of the white vote of Alabama. We had at that time in round ! numbers 1,250,000 white people and at the rate of one voter to live persons by the census we must have had about 250,000 men elegible to vote. And de ducting democratic negro votes you cast less than 40 per cent of Alabama's white voting strength. Here in Clay county we have Just, 4000 white men eligible to vote. But Wilson got only 1200 of them. Roosevelt got a good vote, but nothing to compare with the num ber he would have received had we a non-partisan election system. 1 know many populous neighborhoods over whelmingly in favor of Roosevelt that cast almost no vote at all. And if you mixed with the country people you would lind that a very large element in Alabama believes in Roosevelt. In fact, he is the man after their own hearts. The dwindling bunch of voters which constitutes the Alabama elec torate1 now forms no fair criterion by which to Judge the sentiments of th» whole population of the state. Furthermore, to my knowledge a great many men voted for Wilson who would have voted for Roosevelt if there had been any hope of his election. In deed, many thought Taft would have taken more votes from Roosevelt than lie did. The whole voting strength of Ala bama is not 50 per cent of the possible white vote now, and before we are all much older that is going to make bad trouble for someone. Respectfully, , JOSHUA FRANK UN. Pyrlton, Clay County, June 21, 1913.

Only two of the men under Indict ment by the Hinds county grand jury and who have been arrested and re leased on $500 bond, were connected with the management of the peniten tiary. These are Lawrence Yerger, sec retary of the board/ of trustees for the past five years, and who has confessed that he appropriated about $30,000 to nis own use; the other being A. C. Davis, storekeeper on the big convict farm at Parehman, where six or seven thousand bales of cotton are made an nually. Mr. Davis arrived in Jackson the same day he was notified of the in dictment and gave bond in the sum of $5000 for his appearance. The other man under arrest and bond is W. D. dowdy, manager of the Jack son Oil and Refining company, and a bosom friend of Yerger. Mr. Gowdy has purchased a good deal of the state's cotton seed, and the charge against him and Davis is that they conspired with Secretary Yerger to defraud the state out of sundry large sums. Mr. Gowdy denies the charges and has em ployed one of the strongest law firms In Jackson to dofend him. These men all stand high in the busi ness and social world—in fact nobody stands higher, and their arrest lias caused one of the most profound sen sations ever known in the state. It Is now expected that other indict ments will he returned next Monday and It Is predicted that some of them will hi* of officers higher up than Yer ger It is known that the. grand jury has had charge of the books of apmtx--* of the banks In tills section of the st-itu | with a view to aeuing the private ac counts of members of the board of trustees, but Just what was found is not known. The statement is made to day that true bills have already been found against other employes of the penitentiary, some of them charging petit larceny, but these are against the "small fry,” and excite small in terest. Governor Brewer declares that the probe Ik going to be run clear through the penitentiary and that if there is any more rottenness it is going to be brought to the surface before ho quits. The Burns detectives at work on the case state that they will have others In the tenter hook in a very few days, that they are not near through. They estimate now that the state has been | robbed of at least half a million dol lars. a great deal of which went, they allege, through Boyce & Co., a Memphis firm of cotton buyers. Boyce maintains an office at Clarksdale, Miss., but when he heard the grand Jury was after his hooks he transferred them to Memphis. Governor Brewer declares, howver, lie will get them as well as Boyce before li e q u 11 a.
