Labor Day was quietly observed in Mont gomery. No celebrations of any charac ter marked the day and but for the gen •ral air of holiday that pervaded the city, the casual observer would scarcely have noticed any change from other days. Offices at the municipal building were closed the greater part of the day and several of the departments at the state Capitol gave their employes holiday. Tile parks of the city were crowded during the day with pleasure lovers and with those who had been given holi day, and the street ears to and from these resorts did a flourishing business. Others sought recreation in the coun try. leaving the city at an early hour and not returning until night. On the whole the day was quietly spent and was enjoyed probably as much as if parades and other celebrations had been held.

ANOTHER CHALLENGE TO THE SUFFRAGISTS Pleads for Woman’s Work at Home in Lynchburg Speech ST. PAUL QUOTED ON PROPOSITION • Alabama Congressman Declares Bal lot Women Are Hazarding Much and Entering Upon Peril ous Journey Lynchburg, Va., September 1.—Repre sentative Heflin oNjUabama flung an other challenge to woman suffragists to day when, in a Labor Day address ftfere, under the auspices of the Young Men's Christian association, he pleaded for woman’s work at the home Instead of at. the ballot. He declared that “in the mad clamor for the ballot women are hazarding much and entering upon a perilous journey.'’ and warned them to “Stop, look, listen.” “Ohio defeated woman suffrage by an overwhelming majority,” said Mr. Hef lin. “Michigan defeated it by a tremen dous vote. New Jersey had woman suf frage and, by common consent of both men and women, abandoned it. The mil itant suffragettes of England in their rage of wild fanaticism are trampling upon the laws of God and man. They are committing assaults on English offi cials and burning the churches of the living God. I’pon the home-loving, man trusting, consecrated Christian women of the United States rests the safety of our institutions and the perpetuity of this republic.’’ St. Paul Quoted Mr. Heflin quoted Paul’s saying to the Ephesians: “The husband is the head of tlie wife, even as Christ is the head of the church,” and he added: “Some of these suffragettes have little patience with Paul and the teachings of the Chris tian religion. At Birmingham, Ala., a I very distinguished former official of the state asked a suffragette how she got around the doctrine of Paul and she re plied quickly: ‘Damn old Paul.’ “ “The Calmucks," be continued, “be lieved that the tlrst inhabitants of earth were divine and had wings and luminous faces, but there was a fruit called shiine which was sweet and very tempting. They began to taste It, hut, alas, it de prived them of all their perfections. Their wings fell off and the brilliancy of their faces disappeared. Beware, my good woman, there are grave dangers lurking along this road of equal suffrage. “My friends, just as sure as you live and I live and Hod reigns, ttie harmonious relations that have existed between the j sexes will disappear with equal suffrage. Sex antagonism will spring up in Its j wake and sentiment between the sexes I will be destroyed. Create antagonism be l tween the sexes* destroy sentiment be tween the sexes, and the American homo is doomed, and the American republic is dead. A (ireat Peril “This woman suffrage movement is the greatest peril now threatening the Eng lish speaking people. In the name of the American home, In the name ol’ our loved institutions, in the name of generations yet unborn, aye., in the name of the gen tle. home loving women of America. '1 call upon you to light this dangerous, deadly movement and to pave the life of this na tion from the dangers that theraten it. “It is neither proper nor necessary that women should vote. The exigencies of the occasion do not authorize or demand it. A woman suffragist said: ‘I am lighting for my emancipation.’ The emancipation she is seeking is emanie. nation from the plans of nature and the laws of God. The family is the social unit, the harmonious whole with one head, not two heads.” Congratulating Virgin!# on the fact that woman suffrage did not exist “In the home of Washington and Jefferson,” Mr. Heflin declared his belief that “the wom an suffrage movement is not conducive to the charm and gentleness of the high I chi womanhood, that it does not inspire and encourage the ideals of the Christian religion nor make for modesty and refine ment.’’ He portrayed the mother service as the highest and noblest mission In the world and said that to train the voter was more important than to vote. “I stand.” he said, “with uncovered head at the shrine of gentle, modest wom anhood. The mother contributes sons and da lighters to the commonwealth and the country. Her sons carry on civil govern ment in peace and fight for its preserva tion in time of war. Her daughters keep the fires of maternal love forever burn ing. They are the golden links in the endless chain of the Almighty’s plan to people the earth with beings whom God with His image blesses. It is as true as Holy Writ that ‘the hand that rocks the cradle rules the world.’ ” Mr. Heflin closed by reading excerpts from statements against suffrage made by some of the women in suffrage states.

STEWAHT Wasliigton, September 1.—(Special* Representative. Clayton today received the following telegram from J. Hooper Adams, president of the Belma cotton exchange: “The railroads and steaVn ship companies after September 1 will penalize cotton $1 per hale that comes from a gin box larger than 2? by 64 Inches. We think the country is not yet prepared for the change by that date. Unless something' is done quick ly this will cost farmers of the soutjri hundreds of thousands of dollars. Please ask the departments of com merce and agriculture to intercede with the Interstate commerce commission, and if possible have the enforcement of these rules postponed until Janu ary 1, 1914; also have the proper au thorities send telegrams to every cot ton ginner in the south urging them to make thteir gin boxes 27 by 64 inches to conform to the new regulations. Also ask interstate commerce commis sion to urge upon railroads and ocean steamship companies to postpone actioii in describing oh bill of lading condi tion In which cotton is received which might invalidate documents or prevent ready negotiability of documents as heretofore. Your prompt attention will be appreciated." Telegraphs Hooper Promptly upon receipt of this mes sage Mr. Clayton got busy. It was not long before he was in touch with a number of senators from the cotton growing states. This afternoon he sent the following telegram to Mr. Adams at Selma: “The cotton states senators, held a meeting today considered the pro posed penalizing of cotton bales larg er than 27 by 54 inches. Today is a legal holiday and the departments are closed; we have an engagement with interstate commerce commission at 9::)0 o’clock tomorrow morning, and with the Secretary of Agrieuiti#re will use every effort to avert the threatened injury to our cotton growers.” OF FREIGHT RATES Three Go to Montgomery to Testify Before Railroad Commission Mobile, September 1—(Special.)—To tes tify before tile Alabama railroad com mission In the mater of alleged discrim ination in rates between Birmingham and Mobile and Birmingham and Savannah, three Mobllians left this evening for Montgomery.

Will ERECT STEEL PLANT IN MOBILE Will Cost $5,000,000 and Have Daily Output of 1000 Tons—Work Begins at Once Mobile, September 1.—(Special.)—The Southern Steel company, backed by $30, 000,000 capital* Monday announced the proposed establishment of a steel plant ; on the Dickens tract north of Mobile on Ohlcke*nb«tgiie, to cost $5,000,000, The plant according to the announcement, will have a daily output of 1000 tons. Work on the plant Will begin immediately and will contlhue 1$ months. The complete plant will employ 3000 men. The company, which proposes to file articles of Incor poration within a week for the plant in Mobile has officers in Chicago and New’ York. Chief among the promoters of the Southern Steel company are the Inter locking Hall and Structural Steel com pany, capitalized at $5,000,000, which ipro poses to manufacture its product,' now' largely In use at the Mobile plant. The manufacturing hajs formerly been done • at Various plants throughout the United I States. Rupert Fry of Milwaukee, president of the Old Jdne Life Insurance company of Milwaukee, has placed $0,700,000 of the stock of the Southern Steel company in j Milwaukee. J. F. Barnhill. Inventor of | the Interlocking Steel rail; I j. C. Davis, | consulting engineer of the company, and C. V. Mead of Denver were representa | lives who came to Mobile to close up the deal. The availability of Cuban ore which is said to produce the highest quality of steel, is said to have been the underlying reason for the establishment of the plant in this city. The company's statement claims that the Interests hold a 500,000 acre tract of ore deposits on the island. The new suburb which will spring up 1 with the establishment of the plant will be known as New Mobile. It will be laid out as an ideal industrial city by the plans of Gary, the yettlemex)t of the United States Steel coi*poration.

Saturday the public weighers of cotton in Selma were seen going around with yard sticks measuring the sides of the different bales. Monday the weighers will have to ascertain whether or not the cotton they weigh comes under the rules which have been promulgated. A few measurements soon developed the fact that fully two-thifOs of fho cottoh brought to Selma was subject to the penalty and this led to a*rneets lug of the members of the Selma cot ton exchange, which was held Saturday afternoon. It was the first meeting of that body since the election of J. Hooper Adams as president. After a full and free discussion of the sub ject a motion prevailed that the Selma cotton exchange wire Senator Bank head and each of the ten congressmen from Alabama asking them to take up the matter with the interstate com merce commission, the matter of pen alization of cotton bales at variance with the prescribed measurements arjk have the order amended so as to be effective only after January 1. 1914. It was pointed out by the Selma cotton* exchange that the farmers were illy prepared for the radical chango am$ that sufficient notice had not beyri given. In the meantime 411 bales of cttton measuring over 54 inches in length a%>d over 27 Indies in width will be penal ized $1, as that 1* the amount the rail roads and the steamships will collect? ft*om tlie buyer. In Selma alone. If tbf proposition already found, keeps up this will mean a loss of $80,000, so it will be seen that it is an important matter to the farmers throughout the south.

False Public Opinion Being Created Washington, September 1.—Senator Owen, chairman of the Senate uunking and currency committee, tonight made public a letter he had addressed to James Simpson, vice president of Mar shall Field & Co., of Chicago, denounc ing "artificial propaganda" against tlfo administration currency bill in behalf of private Interests and denying thc often repeated charges that the banking interests were not given proper hear ings by the framers of tho measure. Senator Owen commented upon a tel egram published in a New York pa per from Mr. Simpson saying: "We think the fullest exchange of opinion between framers of the currency bill and bankers absolutely necessary In order to avoid mistakes." Tills had been sent In reply to a query telegraphed broadcast by the newspaper asking for opinions on alleged lack of co-opera tion between the legislators and bank ing interests. Invited to Appear Reviewing the various congressional hearings and Investigations preceding the drafting of the pending bill, the senator declared that Just four days prior to the publication of the implies to this newspaper Inquiry the bankers of the country had been invited to ap pear before the Senate committee on September 2 and that they already had been given four bearings before the framers of the bill. The propaganda no'.V being carried on, led by the Na tional City bank of New York, which lias circularized the country against the bill," concTuded Senator OxVen, "is obviously intended to discredit the ad ministration and to make it appear that the hankers have not been con sulted ahd that the committee is not xvell informed. Such misrepresentation xvill thus promote a private interest against the public Interest. It Is in open secret that these great concerns, like Morgan * Co., have publicity agents to whom they pay very large salaries and xviio are able to create fictitious und false public opinion unduly favor able to tlie contentions of these great financial cbmpantes. Need Have No Fear “The business men of the country need have no fear that their represen tatives and senators in Congress will act unadvisedly. The representatives of tile big banks of the country have been given the most abundant opportunity to be Hentd. And after they had their Chicago meeting and presented anew their old contentions and requested fur ther hearings, this opportunity was im mediately afforded them by telegraph and the hearings set for 2 o'clock Tues day.
