LETTERS TO EDITOR
Spiritual and Other Shackles
To the Editor of The Age-Herald:
In a few months the elty of Birmingham
expects to have a great religious revival
In full swing.
The promoters of this great civic under
taking are busy as to ways and means,
the building of a huge tabernacle and the
collection of a largo amount of money.
They intend to secure the services of a
. gospel expert. Gypsy Smith, a noted Eng
lish evangelist.
Possibly this revival may turn out to be
for (he real and lasting good of the com
munity, and again It may fall into the
limbo of near revivals.
That there is a need for this revival of
real religion Is evident from the painful
want of spirituality manifested by the
leaders of the churches In Birmingham.
Gypsy Smith will have much to say
about chains and shackles, the chains of
sin and the shackles of habit, and will do
his best to get his hearers to get rid of
them—in a religious sense. But there is
a greater effort being made right now in
our midst than these worthy fninlsters of
leligion could ever hope to make plus
the help of G.vjsy Smith, and one that
will be more far-reaching In its benefi
cial effects on the city. It Is not being
made by any great organization or large
committee of influential men.
But it is being made by one great man
of large sympathies and enlightened un
derstanding.
I refer to Governor O'Neal and Ids fight
to remove the chains and shackles from
the prisoners of the state.
Are the promoters of Gypsy Smith's
campaign against Imaginary fetters pre
pared to support the governor in his fight
for a higher civic life, and a beter and
milder way of dealing with the unfortu
nate and the weak? Shall they he found
on ills side or shall we find them support
ing Judge I.one and Ur. Uovelady in their
cruel endeavors to keep the chains on the
prisoners, waking and sleeping?
The daily papers have not yet recorded
any pastors' association meeting and pass
ing resolutions in support of his excel
lency's humurdtarianlsni.
But perhaps they are ilrst going to un
fetter the souls before they free the legs
of the unfortunate city prisoners.
How different the way of tile Master,
Shall it go on record that the religious
leaders of the elty of Birmingham are
far behind the governor of Alabama In
human sympathy, or will they line up with
his excellency and break the captive’s
chain ?
They have time to remove the eliulns
and the shackles before Gypsy Smith
comes.
Will they do It? JAMES HORNE.

Greatest General in World’s History
To the Editor of The Age-Herald:
Having read in Tuesday's Age-Herald
Mr. Darby's Interesting reminiscences of
the war. and since incidents pertaining
thereto, and eulogies of the great leaders
on both sides are just now particularly
In order, perhaps it may Interest some
of the admirers of the beloved confeder
ate commander to hear a remarkable
compliment paid him across seas.
While in Ireland last summer i met a
major in the British army, stationed in
India, who told me that in British mili
tary circles Lee was considered the
greatest general the world had ever
known and tiiat Ids tactics were made a
study of in the army.
i asked him if ho did not except Alex
ander the Great. Napoleon and Washing
ton who, somehow, had always occu
pied ray mind in the order named as be
ing the greatest generals the world had
ever known. He replied that he excepted
no one—that Robert E. Lee was the
greatest general the world had ever
known. Being Irish and from the south,
of course I felt extremely proud, but |
must confess it took some time to realize
a compliment which bordered on the ex
travagant and that it upset the fixed
order of heroes in my mind, hut I ac
cepted his emphatic statement as that of
one who knows whereof he speaks in
military matters.
Having learned southern history in
southern schools, I knew of course Lee
was great, but to hear that from a criti
cal military standpoint he was considered)
"the greatest" quite astounded me. Very
truly. B. NOLAN.

OPERATIONS OF
The Commerce Commission
Makes Report of the New
England Railroad Probe
Washington, July 9.—Financial op
erations of the New York, New Haven
and Hartford railroad, its ownership of
trolley lines and control of allied New
England railways, are condemned in
unmeasured terms by the interestate
commerce commission in the report of
its investigation made public here to
day. The commission's conclusions are:
That the ‘'outside" financial manage
ment has been "wasteful in the ex
treme," and that had the New Haven
confined itself to actual railroad activ
ities under the same conditions that
prevailed in other respects "it could
have paid a dividend of 8 per cent for
the fiscal year 1912 and carried to sur
plus account $1,794,000 instead of show
ing a deficit of $930,000."
That the New Haven’s agreement with
the Boston and Albany is “violative
of the spirit of the statute against the
restraint of competition and should be
cancelled." "In our opinion," says the
commission, “this line should be kept
entirely free from New Haven control."
That the New Haven should divest
itBelf of its trolley lines, not because
the present ownership is in violation of
law% but because such ownership might
be used to prevent the building of com
peting lines in the future.
“Almost Exclusive Monopoly"
That the Boston and Maine’s merger
with the New Haven, if permitted to
stand will result In “an almost exclusive
monopoly of transportation facilities by
railroad in the greater part of New
England.”
That passenger train service, with
out considering safety of operation, on
the New Haven, is distinctly better than
any other line entering New York, and
that of the Boston and Maine equally
as good. Both roads, however, arc
criticised adversely for lack of steel
cars. * /
That the freight service of the Boston
and Maine "is much less reliable than
that of either the Pennsylvania or the
Baltimore and Ohio, while that of the !
New' Haven is slightly inferior to the
Pennsylvania, but about on a par with I
tlie Baltimore and Ohio."
Fares Favorable
That passenger fares in New England, !
have been more facvorable to the local ,
traveling public than In any other por
tion of tl»e United States.
That "any betterment of railroad condi- j
tions in New England must begin with I
the assurance that the New Haven man- |
agement will act not only prudently, but. j
above all, within the letter and the spirit i
of the law."
It Is shown by the report that in 1903,
the total capitalization of the New Haven
was $93,000,000, and its operated mileage.
2040 miles, in 1912, its capitalization was
$417,000,000. an increase of $324,000,000; while i
Its operated mileage was increased only
60 miles. Tn this period of nine years,
the New Haven company acquired actual
ownership of about S00 miles of road which
it previously had operated, expending ap
proximately $40,000,000 In obtaining the ad
ditional mileage. It, expended during the
nine years $90,000,000 for betterments and
equipment, making a total of $136,000,000
devoted to its railroad property.
“This would leave." the report points
out, "tlie sum of $20,000,000 which in nine
years had been expended in operations
outside its railroad sphere," To the meth
ods of investing that sum, the report de
votes elaborate attention. Various trans
actions are taken up, one by one. and
analyzed.
Summarizing the passenger fare situa
tion in New England, Commissioner
Proiity says:
"Its passenger fares have been more
favorable to the local traveling public
than in any other portion of the United
States. The recent decision of the Uni
ted States supreme court sustaining the
statutory 2-cent per mile fares in several
states will tend to make that fare more
general tn the future."
Nearly 13,000 Delegates At
tend Meetings—Francis
E. Clark Presides
Los Angeles, July 9.—With nearly 13,000
delegates attending from all parts of the
christianized world, the twenty-sixth in
ternational Christian Endeavor convention i
opened in Los Angeles tonight.
The multitude attending the%fcthering
was .seated in the gigantic canvas audi-;
torium, amid semi-tropic scenes, a replica 1
of southern California out of doors, car
ried bodily inside. Palm tree vistas,
served for aisles and vines concealed the
supporting pillars.
Francis E. Clark of Washington. D. C.. |
the president of the organization, and
because of his initials known as “Father
Endeavorer," presided. A chorus of 90o
voices joined in an opening service of
praise.
Greetings were presented to the conven
tion from President Woodrow Wilson,
Secretary of State Bryan, Dr. L. Kovatz.
acting vice president of the Hungarian
Christian Endeavor union and Akaiko
Akanu, president of the Endeavorers of
Hawaii.
President Wilson's message read:
“It would bo a great pleasure to me
if J could attend the convention. Will
you not convey to those assembled my
warmest greetings and most sincere
wishes for the happy success of their
work?”
Secretary Bryan’s letter said in pait:
“As you know, I feel deeply Interested
In the Christian Endeavor movement and
appreciate its extended growth and great
usefulness. It Is one of our largest in
strumentalities for Christian service, and
I feel sure its future labors will surpass
Its present activities.”
To his greetings, Dr. Kovatz added:
“If possible, remember Hungary in your
prayers.”
Mr. Akana, on behalf of the Hawaiian 1
Endeavorers, sent “Aloha Nui Ixia” a!
message of love rhrased in the language i
of the Kanakas.
The election of officers was this after
noon perfunctory. Dr. Francis E. Clark,
founder of the society, was unanlmousliy
re-elected president.
“We expert t«> keep Dr. Clark at the
heud cf the Endeavorers as long as he j
lives,’’ said Secretary William Shaw of |
Boston.
Mr. Shaw and the other officers were re
elected. |

TALKS ON THRIFT
HOUSEHOLD ACCOUNTING
“Experience teaches that it is the men
and women who pay attention to small
savings that become wealthy. By saving
nickels and dimes, a thrifty person lays
the foundation of a fortune.*'—James A.
Garfield.
It pays to run the financial end of the
home on business principles, and full and
accurate accounting is one of the founda
mer.tals of good business without day
liook or ledger?
Every household should keep a regular
account of all earnings and expenditures.
Only In this way can you be able to make |
up a domestic budget intelligently and
know just where your money is going and
how much you can afford to spend in any
given direction. Thus an orderly person
will know beforehand what is required
and will be provided with the necessary
means of obtaining it.
But is must be on a more detailed plan
than that of the wife whose accounting
consisted of these two entries: On one
side—“Received from John, $50.'* and on
the other side—“Spent it all.”
The work of the home consists of
several distinct occupations. The
housewife, in conducting the affairs
of the home, performs the duties of a
hotel keeper in providing bed and shel
ter, the work of a caterer in providing
food, the work of the laundry in the
various cleansing processes, the wrork
of the nursery in caring for the chil
dren. and many other duties that are
considered separate occupations outside
the home, but which in housekeeping
are classed as one occupation for one
person, and arc supposed to be con
ducted with economy. Great as this
task is in itself, it is usually made
more difficult through the absence of
any regular method handling the va
rious items of income and expense.
The very best way to -educe expenses
is to itemize everything and set it
down in black and wliite, and then
cut on each item. This means limit
ing one’s outgo in a practical way. It
may be unpleasant but, after all, one
can make one to suit your own re
quirements from a blank book such as
can be obtained at any stationery store.
Here is a plan which you will find
entirely feasible:
Get a book with pages about 10x12
inches. Then rule each two facing
pages vertically so that there arc, say.
18 columns. The first space at the
left Is for the names of the various
items' of receipt and expenditure from
day to day. The second column is
for the amounts of the items of in
come received, the third column is
for the figures of expenditure, and! the
15 remaining columns across the two
pages are for the classification of the
various items carried out from column ,
2. For example, some such division
might l*e made as this: Column 1. re- \
celpts; 2, expenditures: 3, food; 4, cloth- |
ing; 5, help: 6, savings bank and real ,
estate; 7, insurance; 8, car fare; 8,
recreation; 10, gifts; 11, fuel and light;!
12, water and sewer; 13, furniture; 14,!
ice; 15. doctors and medicine; 16, lawn
and garden; 17. miscellaneous expenses.
Foot up each column at the bottom of
each page and carry it forward to the
top of the next, checking the correct
ness of your bookkeeping by seeing
that the grand total of the totals of
the last 15 columns equals the total
of column 2. Start anew each month
and then you can easily compare the
figures of one month with those of
another in the same year, or you can
make a comparison of corresponding
months in different years. At the end
of the year you can add up the monthly
totals to get the totals for the year.
The experience of one thrifty woman
along this line was described in a wom
an’s magazine, as follows:
“At the beginning of the year we
make our apportionment for groceries,
meat, clothes, house furnishings, etc.,
on the basis of past experience and
anticipated needs. This is one of the
most important features of our sys
tem. It is where the fiiMinces of many
a family go on the rocks. Suppose our
income is $100 a. month, we must not
spend as mucli as that, nor nearly as
much, for we must provide for the in
s'' itable “rainy day,“ if every fam
ily would set its face like flint on this
point, many a disaster would be
avoided. After our estimates are made,
we ad^ up our figures. Alas! we find
that we have planed to spend over $100
more than our income, counting the
little margin allowed for the savings
account. No, never, but we pet ubout
to cut off a little here anti there un
til the total comes within our income.
1,0 ue **ve up to our estimate in all
cases'.’ No. but as we see that we ex
ceed our allowance in one department
we cut down In another and always
come through the 12 months witli a
little to spar© over our total estimate.
This plan requires surprisingly little
time and (here is the satisfaction of
knowing that yon are to have some
thing to show for it all in the fu
ture."
it is a wise rule to set aside a cer
tain per cent of your income regularly
considering that this per cent Is im
so ranee against the future. Look upon
it as a debt which must he paid. As
your income increases, vour savings
will increase. "
KILBY PLEASED AT I

Comments on St. Clair Sen
ator’s Action in Declining
to Oppose Him
Anniston, July 9.—(Special.')—”Of course.
I am deeply gratified at the announce
ment of State Senator Watt T. Brown of
Ragland, published In the Birmingham
Age-Herald Wednesday morning, to the
effect that he will not be a candidate
for lieutenant governor against me, not
merely because it elininates, as I be
lieve, all probability of opposition in my
race for this office, but because of the
fact that he is my personal friend anil
I should hate to have to fight him for
a political office. Had I not already an
nounced when it became known to 'me
that Senator Brown’s friends were urg
ing him to announce for the office, it
would have been my good pleasure to
support him; and I feel that my own can
didacy is greatly strengthened in the as
surance that he will lend his support to
my campaign.”
The above statement was made by Mr.
Kilby, candidate for lieutenant governor,
today. Senator Brown is a director in
the Anniston-City National bank, of
|fhich Mr. Kilby is president, and Mr.
Kilby is a stockholder In banks controlled
by Mr. Brown, the two being closely con
nected in both business and personal af
fairs. Mr. Brown is also seeking a power
franchise here, and the industrial school
which he is promoting at Ragland, it is
believed, would bo of great benefit to
the Anniston district.
Senator Kilby will leave in a few days
for a short vacation in Canada. Ho
states, however, that he will soon re
turn and resume his campaign, despite
the fact that lie has no active oppost
tion. ,

NAME MOBILE m¥
FOR NEXT SPEAKER
Bush and Chamberlain Be
lieve Sullivan Ideal Man
for the Place
Two of Mobile's representatives in
the legislature. Albert P. Bush and
Bart E». Chamberlain, while in Bir
mingham yesterday nominated George
J. Sullivan, the third representative of
Mobile county, as speaker of the low
er house of the legislature to pre
side over the next regular session.
Mr. Sullivan is one of the strongest
members of the legislative body and
was one of the most popular during
the last session.
“We will return Sullivan to the leg
islature,” said Mr. Bush, “and will en
deavor to make him speaker. He is
capable in every respect, and would
make a first rate* and popular presid
ing officer."
Mr. Chamberlain, who was one of the
youngest members during the last ses
sion, seconded the Sullivan nomination.
* I feel certain,” said he, “that Sul
livan will win. He is capable and pop
ular.”
Only one other man has been men
tioned as a candidate for speaker. He
is A. H. Carmichael of Tuscumbia,
speaker of the Comer legislature. Mr.
Carmichael, while in Birmingham last
week, stated that he might make the
race for the legislature, and that again
he might not. It is generally thought
however, that ho will enter and make
the fight for speaker.

Weather Conditions
Birmingham, July 9.—(7 p. m. >—The
pressure is relatively low on tonight’s
map over the northern portion of the
country east of the Mississippi river,
the principal center having moved
from the western lakes to the St. Raw
rence valley since Tuesday night. It
lias caused general rain over sections
north of the Ohio river and also in
the north Atlantic states.
The low pressure area is horseshoe
shaped and extends from the Great
Rakes southwestward to the southern
Rockies, thence northward over the
plateau sections. The center of the
horseshoe is occupied by an area of
high barometer. The influence of this
high, together with the cooling effect
of the rains to the eastward, has caused
relatively cool weather to prevail over
northern sections east of the Rocky
mountains while in sections under the
influence of the “low” temperatures
have ranged high, although slightly
lower in most districts than on Tues
day night. Rain has fallen in portions
of Kansas. Nebraska and Colorado, but
in other districts west of the Missis
sippi river, fair weather has been gen
eral.
In the cotton belt Memphis alone re
ported rainfall since Tuesday night.
Temperatures range high In all sec
tions, especially west of the Missis
sippi. Conditions seem to indicate rath
er unsettled weather for this section
Thursday with nearly stationary tem
peratures.
