O’Neal Has Not Yet Re
ceived Any Application
for Position

Whether or Not Governor has Given
Serious Consideration to Any
of These Is Not .
Montgomery. October 25.—(Special.)—Al
though Governor O'Neal has given as
surance that he will probably appoint a
United States senator, the chief executive
has not yet received any applications for
the big position. The names of several
prominent Alabamians have been sug
gested for the office, men who would do
credit to their slate and nation were they
given an opportunity to occupy so con
spicuous a place, but neither they nor
their friends have seemed to think It
worth while to speak to the governor on
the subject.
Their inactivity is not believed to be
duo to any conviction they might have
that the honor would be an empty one,
for there Is hardly a doubt that the
appointment would be declined once It
•was tendered. Very probably they all
believe that the governor prefers to make
Ills own choice, regardless of whatever
outside pressure might be brought to bear
upon him, and regardless of their own in
dividual petitions. Hence, while apparent
ly Indifferent to which way the wind
blows, It would scarcely be amiss to say
that several prominent gentlemen of the
state are awaiting the governor's action
with eager expectancy.
Those Suggested for the Office
While a dozen or more leading men'
of the state have been suggested for the
vacant senatorshlp, it is safe to say that
the leading candidates mentioned for the
office are W. P. G. Harding and Frank P.
Glass of Birmingham, John B. Knox of
Anniston and Ray Rushton of Montgom
ery, with every indication that one of
these four will be offered the plum.
Governor O’Neal admits that these four
men have been strongly urged for the j
senatorshlp, and he further admits that
each one of them is admirably equipped
and qualified for the office. But wheth
er or not the executive has given serious
consideration iw any one of them is not
known. He refuses to discuss that phase
of the question.
Mr. Harding’s name has been suggest- ,
•d to the governor by a number of friends
of . the prominent financier, and it is be
lieved that the suggestion has been re
ceived with some favor on the part of |
the executive, though the executive lias
in no way intimated that he may offer
the senatorshlp to Mr. Harding.
Frank F. Glass and Col. John B. Knox
have also been favorably mentioned in
connection with the vacant senatorshlp.
Both of these gentlemen were urged for
^ the office before the appointment of Rep*
Vesentative Henry D. Clayton, and now
that the senatorshlp is again vacant—inso
far as the appointment is concerned—their
friends have renewed their activity in
their behalf. It Is generally admitted
on all sides that any one of the three—
Messrs. Harding, Glass and Knox—would
reflect credit upon his state were he
given an opportunity to occupy the seat
left vacant hy the late Senator John
ston, but whether any one of them will
be tendered the office is a question that
none will attempt to answer.
ii|uiu);umriaY lur ivuy i\u»iiiun
Notwithstanding the fact that Hay
Rushton has never in any sense been an
applicant for the vacant senator ship, the
friends of that pfominent Montgomery at
torney are unusually active ih his be
half, and his appointment would give ex
treme satisfaction not only to his ad
mirers in this city but to hundreds of
friends in this section of the state.
Mr. Rushton had considered running
for the office before Mr. Underwood an
nounced his candidacy, but promptly
withdrew just as soon qh the popular
House leader entered the race. In with

The mass meeting for men at the Jef

at which time Chief of Police J. L. Bea
vers of Atlanta wilt make'an address on
"Law Enforcement,’’ is expected to bo
one of the largest ever held in the city.
This police chief, it is claimed, lias done
things in Atlanta, and comes hero with

second to none in the country.
The man who organized and directed
the Atlanta campaign was Marion M.
Jackson, one of the most eloquent young
attorneys of the Capital City, and he

Christian and Protected Vice." He it
was who wrote the striking advertise
ments for ail the Atlanta papers and ho

business and professional men that lined
them up for an aggressive campaign
against vice. This meeting will afford
the men of Birmingham an opportunity
to hear two men who have done things
in the way of cleaning up ope of the

Address Signed by Many
Prominent Men of Ninth
District Was Issued
Last Night
The campaign committee of Oscar
W. Underwood to present hi9 candidacy
and conduct his fight for the Senate
of the United States, will be organized
in Birmingham on Tuesday, Novem
ber 4.
A call signed by 160 men of the coun
ties of the Ninth congressional district,
representAives of all factions of mili
tant democracy, was issued last night
to the people of Alabama. Invitations
were extended to attend a meeting fn
Birmingham on November 4 at which
formal organization will be effected.
Mr. Underwood will be present, and
before the gathering will make his first
political speech of tho campaign. He
will discuss the issues, and will discuss
the record of his opponent. In other
words, he will pitch the campaign, and
sound the cry which will precipitate the
battle to be concluded in his nomina
tion to the Senate of the nation.
drawing from the race he candidly ad
mitted his ambition to go to the United
States Senate, but declared that he
could not, as a patriotic citizen, con
sider opposing the man who had
brought so much glory to the state,
and who was entitled to any office In
the gift of his people.
Mr. Rushton is recognized as one of
the ablest lawyers in Alabama, and as
one who is not only admirably quali
fied for the office, but as one who is
equipped in an unusual degree to cope
with the many important questions
which would come before him were he a
United States senator. His appointment
would be favorably received, it is be
lieved, by tile people of the entire
state, add it is claimed that the gov
ernor could not make a wiser selection.

Much Interest in Opening of
His Headquarters Here
November 14
Henderson's Attitude Toward Comer’s
Running Start Is That the
Quick Flame Soon
Burns Out
There Is a great deal of Interest local
ly In the plan or Charles Henderson to
open campaign headquarters in Bir
mingham November 14.
There is speculation as to whom this
candidate for governor will put lti
charge of his headquarters. As the
votes are in tin northern extremity* of
the state, it is safe to predict that the
bigger portion of his office force will
be maintained in Birmingham. This
feature Is a feature of interest algo.
B. B. Comer is preparing to re
suscitate the gubernatorial campaign
and bring it out of the darkness and
void into which it has tumbled since
the lnciplency of the senatorial race.
He will leave this afternoon for Green
ville. where tomorrow he will make
an address. It is understood that he is
planning to resume the activity which
featured his early effort.
The Different Tactics
With a great deal of interest, the
people are contemplating the different
campaign tactics of Mr. Henderson and
Mr. Comer. The latter, as is remem
bered, precipitated his fight a full year
In advance of the probable date of the
primary election. He started at full tilt.
In the very beginning, as a matter of
fact, he delivered his GaineB Chapel
address, one of the most vitriolic ever
delivered in Alabama. He continued the
awful pace for several weeks and then
gradually subsided. The point Is, "Has
the awful reaction set in?"
On the other hand Mr. Henderson
has always held that it is a quick flame
which soon burns itself out. He has
proceeded on the theory that a start
too soon would tiro the people and
cause a general lack of interest and
fatal apathy. He prepared to begin
striking late in the fall, after he had
disposed of the built of the business in
the serving of which he was serving
the people. He felt that if he waited
and then got* busy, stepped out on th'
aggressive with a blare of trumpets,
that his campaign would prove the most
effective of the two.
Henderson to Strike
The people are watching the situa
tion with rapt interest. Mr. Henderson
will open headquarters November II.
He will begin a vigorous, aggressive
campaign which he will maintain day
by day until the end of the race. Speak
ers will be put on (lie stump and every
county will be canvassed. He feels that
there are great issues at slake and
will go the very limit in an effort to
obviate, what he considers would bo
an exceedingly fatal blunder.
Walter D. Weed, who, in the opinion
of the Anti-Saloon league, has been Just
as faithful as Mr. Comer in regard to
prohibition and equally as consistent,
Is conducting an active campaign. He
is fighting on the 'quiet" and feels
confident that the prohibitionists of the
state will follow his banner.

Kidney Trouble
The least little disorder of the kidneys is liable to result seriously,
and if allowed to run without proper attention, results in such dreaded
diseases .as Bright’s disease, diabetes, dropsy, etc. From the investigations and con- V
elusions of the greatest authority, we are leJ to the conviction that the kidneys, from'
their delicate construction and the sifting work required of them, are the weakest 'of the I
orgaus in the wonderful machinery of our construction, and it stands to reason that few
people, after reaching the period of maturity, are in possession of absolutely healthy kid
neys, and this being so, the greatest care and vigilance should he exercised to keep these
organs free from the dangers that constantly beset them. \
If the actual death rate resulting from kidney troubles alone should be given yearly by *
the health authorities, the astounding fact would confront us that kidney disease is epi
demic. Consumption, heart failure, typhoid fever, pneumonia and appendicitis are physi
cal and organic troubles to be dreaded, but the mortality of all put together does not
equal that of kidney disease. '
, “Fulton’s Remedies” are accomplishing more positive results than all the other kid
ney remedies in existence. You don’t have ti go out of Birmingham to find men who have
been entirely cured of kidney trouble. Come and ask us for the names of local people—
then go talk with them. We are skeptical when it comes to recommending proprietary
remedies. However, we are always glad to tell you when we meet with a meritorious
