SAVES UFE OF NEGRO
Commutes Sentence of Choc
taw Man, Recently Given
Death Penalty
Montgomery. July 10.—(Special.)—Fear
ing that efforts might be made to lynch
Steve Cheny, the Choctaw county negro
convicted of the murder of B. B. Bush,
Governor O'Neal commuted his sentence
early in the week, Instructed a state
transfer agent to remove him from Choc
taw county Immediately and said nothing
about his action until f'heny had been
placed in the Montgomery county jail
today.
The judge before whom Cheny was tried
recommended commulaljm and his opin
ion *was shared by man^P'itizens. There
was little evidence against the negro,
and Gotsernor O'Neal believes he would
not have been given the death penalty had
public mind not been stirred over the kill
ing of Bush. Soon after Bush was killed
one negro was lynched, and Cheny was
sentenced to death, the date for the execu
tion being June 11.
Several respites were granted after the
original verdict was rendered, and the
supreme court had affirmed the sentence,
so the governor could make an investiga
tion. Cheny was brought to Montgomery
Wednesday evening and carried to the
state penitentiary.
GOT CONTROL OF
OFFICE AS HIS
OPPONENT DINEI)
Montgomery, July 10.—(Special.)—After
several days of controversy between J. S
Johnson and Will Horn of Brantley, Cren
shaw county, relative to the postmaster
ship at that place, Horn has at last suc
ceeded In securing control of the office,
according to a report received in Mont
gomery today.
Mr. Horn, democrat, was appointed by
President Wtison to succeed Mr. Johnson,
republican, as postmaster at Brantley.
The Taft appointee, however, refused to
turn the office over to Mr. Horn, main
taining that by a .special act of Congress
the Brantley office had been placed under
the civil service legulatlon on account of
the falling off of receipts, and that Mr.
Horn was not eligible.
Mr. Johnson maintained that the Brant
Jey office was placed under the civil serv
ice on July 1, the day on which Mr. Horn
was to resume his new duties.
This state of affairs continued for S3V
eial days, the poet master-elect not being
able to secure control of the office. At
last Mr. Horn’s opportunity came.
Postmaster Johnson, nut suspecting nis j
rival's plans, left the office one day to go
home to dinner, md when he returned he
found Postmaster Horn sitting at his desk
and discharging the duties of hi» new of
fice.
Protests on the part of Mr. Johnson did
not avail. Air. Horn declared that he was
there to stay, and that he was determined
to continue to act as postmaster.
It Is now reported that Mr. Johnson will
institute legal proceedings to oust the
new postmaster from office, on the ground
that the Brantley postoffice is now under
civil service regulation, and that Mr.
Horn is not eligible to hold the position.

lots, arranging for holiday celebrations
and pageants, similar to the potlatch cele
bration you bad here in the spring, pro
motion of Boy Scouts activities and Camp
fire Girls, arrangements for summer
camps, provisions for band concerts, home
recreation, co-operate with other agencies
such as the juvenile courts, settlements,
libraries and social organizations, all come
under the head of recreations."
We hear much of the need for play
among the children of the city poor.
They'lack even sunshine and a place to
play oftimes.
The dirt, the noise, the crowd of a
great city crush out before our open eyes
the lives of its children.
If New York and Boston—those great,
throbbing, pulsating cities of commerce 1
and progress—have seen tit to spend more
than $1,000,000 a year for recreation, and 1
consider it a wise investment, surely Blr- !
mingham lias followed in the right path
when she has opened her purse and her
heart to further this splendid movement.
As for the recreation which prevails
generally among Americans, it is too
largely passive.
We are amused by the theatre, the vau
deville and the moving picture show's, but
out of door games and sports, and the
open air, tend to give life and heulth and
wholesome gain more than anything else.
Many modern writers have taken up the
subject, in fiction and in verse, afjiong
them being the well known Frenchman,
Brieux, who with his disquieting plays
suggests ways in which the emphasis upon
material standards, as opposed to instinc
tive activities, has postponed marriage,
lowered the birth rate and threatened
the destruction of homes.
In contrast, think of the Biblical vision—
"And the streets of the city shall be
beautiful with children playing in the
streets."

telephone pole and. despite all blandish
ments, refused to come down. Tiring at
last, two members of the mob climbed the
pole after the luckless strike breaker and,
seizing him by the leet, threw him to the
sidewalk. He was badly injured, said Mr.
Messinger.
Mr. Messinger said that imported em
ployes ref used to continue at work when
they found out about the strike. Th» y
gathered at the station and there, he said,
were attacked by a mob of strikers. The
men barricaded themselves In a near r<y
hotel and only consented to leave upon be

from service in the Clabaugh case against
the association several years ago. He was
told by the court that he need not answer
the question of the district attorney as to
how he evaded service, hut the witness
laughingly said he did not mind. The wit
ness had already amufeed the spectators
with constant witty speeches. The witness
said that he was in Birmingham and hear 1
of summons being out.
“1 was told that a deputy was at the
Country club, one ot Sid Lee's store, one
at the Hillman ’hotel, one at the Louis
ville and Na-shvilel station, and one at the
Terminal station. So 1 left the city on my
own volition after getting that informa
tion from a friend.”
By the District Attorney: “Is it not a
fact that you went down a fire escape
from the Hillman hotel?”
By the. Witness; “Mr. Street in a large
city there are various avenues by which
one can depart of one’s own volition.”
That repiy, practically confessing the
charge of the dirt riot attorney about the
fire escape, caused much merriment in the
court room.
