Over 2000 people gathered at the
Goodwin home in Sterrett. Shelby coun
ty. yesterday to pay honor to Asa
Goodwin, the head of the family, on his
106th birthday. Over 100 went from
Birmingham in a special train. Recruits
were picked up at every station be
tween her© and Sterrett and by the
time the train reached there the num
ber had been doubled. People came from
•very part of the state to pay tribute
to Mr. Goodwill, who is perhaps the
oldest man in the United States.
The party left here yesterday morn
ing at 7 o'clock and returned at 10
o'clock last night. When the train ar
rived all immediately proceeded to the
barbecue ground, where the reunion
was to be held. About two hours were
■pent in shaking hands, greeting old
friends and getting acquainted. Then i
the people went to the meeting house,
Where devotional services wei© con- i
uucieu.
Mr. Fulmer of Sterrett delivered the
welcome address In behalf of Mr. Good
win and the response was made by the
Rev. dames Parker of Birmingham. He
dwelt on the* history of the elder Mr.
Goodwin, spoke of the marvelous
changes which he had witnessed and
called attention to the fact that Mr.
Goodwin had never been i\ a court of
law as a litigant of any description.
Mr. Parker’s address was heartily ap
plauded by all who heard it and re
ceived particular commendation from
members of the Goodwin family. Mr.
-Wood of Heeds made the third address
of the day.
Following the devotional meeting
some time was spent In making pic
tures. after which the crowd filed
around the tables which were loaded
down with good thing* to eat. In ad
dition to the chicken, cake. pie. pickles,
* bf^ad and things of a like nature 1100
pounds of meat bad been barbecued
to satisfy the demands of the crowd ex
pected.
After dlijher more pictures were
made. A family group of several hun
dred was taken. Incidentally. Mr. Good
win has 318 direct descendants. Not all
of them were able to attend yesterday.
This is exclusive of those who married
descendants of his. Counting these
there were present yesterday over 40u
of his relatives. A picture was taken
showing five generations.
The ball game was next in o»der anu
the people rushed for the .Mamond
where Vincent bested Sterrett by the
score of 10 to 3. The game was very
enjoyable and everybody had a good
time. Batteries were: Vincent, Masters
jand Fleming; Sterrett. Pickle ?„nd Gib
*'*on.
About two hours were consumed in
saying good-by and the specials then
left for the various points.
No one enjoyed the day more than
him in whose honor the hundreds had
assembled. He shook hands with ev
erybody. partook heartily of tue din
tier^and had a good lime. Considerable
amusement was caused at on * of his
remarks.
“How many do you suppose arc here?'
he asked one of his grandsons.
“T expect there are 300 or 400 peo
ple.'* was the reply.
“Go way from here,” the old man re
plied. “I have hugged and kissed more
than 500.”

In command of a lead of three and
a half games, the Gulls open a four
game series with the Crackers for
the Southern league* hunting. A
string of four successive victories
will he the only hope for Atlanta cap
turing the bunting. But the strain
of overwork has weakened the Gull
pitchers and the Cracker hitters may
slug out four successive victories.
The first of the crucial series will
he staged this afternoon. “Pug”
Cavet, the ‘’"Blind" Mobile pitcher will
face Price. Despite his affliction, the
southpaw should put up a strong
fight. It would not he surprising to
see the Gulls win the clash.

The curtain fell on the contest for
the medals after the last battle yes
terday. Trough and Robertson are
conceded to have captured the medals
in the pitching and hitting depart
ments. but there is some doubt about
the base stealing supremacy. Unof
ficial figures show a discrepancy, as
some give Wares the lead, while the
others endow Bob Messenger an ap
preciable margin, with Robertson sec
ond.
Birmingham was fortunate in win
ning two of the three medals, if Mes
senger annexed the theft trophy.
Teevey by -his ill success, Covaleski
is to be given a similar medal by the
Chattanooga fans. The Noogan fans
are proud of the Pole’s performance,
and will purchase a medal by popu
lar subscription.

It "will probably be the last season
trophies are given for (list rank In the
respective positions The team work
of the clubs suffers by t lie introduc
tion of such trophies, while a spirit of
«ntagonfsm is developed among the
players. Pitchers are unwilling to risk
their personal records for the cher
ished bits of gold, while batsmen dis
regard the tvelfare of the team to at
tain wonderful marks.
Managers Molesworth. Dobbs and
Schwarts have declared that they are
opposed to the continuation of the
practice. If awards are to he given,
the "most valuable player to his cluh"
should gain ^he gift. While such a
contest would be more complicated, it
is being worked well in the two major
leagues.

to the second place clubs in both

just about as valuable to the
Giants.
For years the veteran has shoved

race and lias proved himself a

If the Barons can maintain their
lead over the lookouts against the
Turtles. Molesworth will land his
hirelings in third place. Crafty
Omar Hardgrove will twirl this
afternoon in the opening battle
with Doc Newton slated to ornate
the slab for Bernhard.
If Molesworth can steer his crew
into third place he will have ac
complished a worthy feat. In view
of the mishaps, failure of Boyd and
other handicaps, the Barons will
do especially well. Bernhard is
fighting to nose the Vols out of
sixth position.
motion pictures completed the offering
for the week pnd they seemed to bo
one of the strongest features. The
same pictures are run 'today, but to
morrow an entirely new programme
will be offered.
At the Bijou
I’he Bijou season whs inaugurated yes
terday, Labor Day, under the most au
spicious condiitons, with “The Call, of
the Heart,” a three-act emotional drama
capably presented.
Practically every seat in the theatre
was occupied for both performances yes
terday, and the audiences followed Miss
Vance, a southern writer of charm and
power through laughter one second and
the tears the next.
The management has secured a splen
did company practically the same that
created such favorable comment last
year for a company of less ability could
not rise to the possibilities of the play,
nor interpret the lines as they soliuld
be. If anything could be said in criticism
of the company it would be that it is
stronger than last year, with two impor
tant changes in the cast.
The play deals with the international
marriage question. The plot tells of a
bargain which was entered into 26 years
before the beginning of the play for the
mariiage of a daughter of a wealthy
miner of the w'est to the twenty-first
baron of Wolfson, a dissoltue lord of an
cient lineage. The marriage results in
three sons, the oldest and heir to the title,
follows his father's footsteps. The sec
ond son is even worse, a semi-idiot, while
the third is noble of heart and brain, a
great man.
From America come a Mrs. Quecken
bus'b. a schemer; Vivian Ford, daughter
of an American millionaire, and a girl
of superior character and heart. The
twenty-first lord immediately plans a
marriage between the girl and his oldest
son in order that the purse of the fam
ily may be replenished. But the girl's
innocence appeals to Lady Everlow and
she determines to save her. This deter
mination leads ot revelations by Lady
Evelow to the young girl which finally
determines her to forego the riches she
will get if she marries as she is told, and
to marry the younger for love.
Ann Hamilton as Lady Everlow' has a
trying part, one that can easily be over
acted or underplayed, but she presents
it with a finesse which portrays the ac
tor of genous, and it is forcefully handled
at every twist and turn of the intricate
lines
John Nicholson is equally as fortunate
in his rendition of the English lord. Helen
Aubrey as Mrs. Quaekenbush replaces
Millie Stevens and the cnange strength
ens the part. Wells Player is a distinct
improvement as “Comrade Jim,” the only
weak part in the play last year.
THAW HEARING WILL
BE PRIVATE, SAYS
JUDGE HUTCHINSON
i Continued from Page One)
decision of Judge Hutchinson. "I doubt
whether 1 would have gone to court any
way.” was his comment.
Police arrangements to meet possible
pro-Thaw demonstrations in the court
room or on the streets were held in abey
ance tonight, although it was understood
that secret service and uniformed officers
would be on hand in case of emergency.
Another Problem
Tiie holding of the hearing in chambers
raises a nice problem that no one here
tonight cared to solve off-hand. It was
this: if the writ is sustained and Thaw
is automatically set at liberty, will the
immigration officers have a right to enter
th# chambers and arreet him? K. Blake
Robertson, assistant superintendent of im
migration. with two assistants, will sta
Uon himself In the corridor just outside
the chambers and watch the door ike a
cat
Notwithstanding the contention of
Thaw’s lawyers that Boudreau Is not an
interested party, in that the proceedings
are not in the prisoner’s behalf and that
Thaw has signed a sworn statement repu
diating his intention of seeking damages
for false arrest. Boudreau Insists that he
lias a right to demand Thaw’s liberty and
that in so doing no one gave him advice.
Those with the gambling instinct domi
nant were wagering two to one tonight
that the writ would not be upheld.
Many letters threatening Jerome’s life
have been received by him since his ar
rival here. Most of them were written
by cranes. While Jerome takes such
missives lightly, he is being guarded con
stantly by private detectives. This after
noon a crank tried to enter his room,
but was steered away.
Alex Dupuis, justice of the peace, and
just now the most talked of man in Coati
cook. in view of his having signed the
commitment on which Thaw is held, is
sued a statement tonight, saying with
some heat that if the commitment were
defective, as has been contended, it was
not hie fault, but that of Hecter Verret,
counsel for the Matteawan asylum, who
drew it.
Thaw today sent the Protestant and
Catholic booths at the Sherbrooke fair
each a check for $50. On the whole, he
spent a very quiet day, receiving few* vis
itors.

DEATH IN MONTGOMERY
Montgomery, September 1.—(Special.)
Dan Morrison, a motorcycle racer, 30
years old. was instantly killed about 5:30
o'clock this afternoon when his machine
skidded on the race track at Vandiver
park and ran the luckless rider into the
fence. The sari accident was witnessed
by the unfortunate man's wife, who occu
pied a seat In the grandstand at the park.
Morrison was riding about 05 miles an
hour.
The accident was doubly unfortunate
owing to the fact that Morrison was on
the last lap of a 10-mile race. His prin
cipal opponent, Charlie Brown, had Just
finished a few seconds before tlie acci
dent occurred. Owing to the bad weather
the accident was witnessed by only a
few 'people. The course was in bad con

dent say that Morrison's motorcycle
skidded Just as It struck a sandbank.
Death resulted Just as soon as Morrison
hit the fence, his skull having been frac
tured and many bones broken.

eer at the Girls' High school here.
