PEACE IS III IDE CITV
* *\ Albert Bryant Will Speak at How ard College Against large navy States That Promoters of World Peace Movement Realize They Cannot Gain Their End in i a Day ’Albert G. Bryant of Boston. Mass., or- 1 fc&nization manager of the world peace j foundation, is in the city in the interest of the world peace movement. He will j apeak this morning before the Howard j college assembly on the subject, “The Necessity of International Low in a World’s Society." In the afternoon he ■Will formulate plans lor starting a brunch of the movement in Birmingham in the form of a sub-committee of the Cham ber of Commerce. Tonight at S o'clock he will make a public address at the Cable hall on Sec ond avenue where he will be presented by the Birmingham Equal Suffrage associa tion to the public. Mrs. Oscar Hundley, president of the association, will intro duce Mr. Bryant. The meeting will be free, and open to the general public. His •ubject will be “The Passing of Nations As Powers." Mr. Bryant was one of the speakers at the Southern Commercial congress re cently held in Mobile at which President Wilson made the principal address. He • Iso presented to the meeting of the Woman’s Auxiliary. Mr. Bryant offered a resolution on the principles of inter national peace as advanced by the presi dent in liis speech, which was adopted Unanimously by both bodies. Headquarters in Boston The World Peace foundation has its headquarters at 40 Mount Vernon street, Boston. Mass. It was organized by Ed ward Ginn of the Ginn Publishing com pany, who subscribes $50,000 annually for the spread and promotion of the world peace movement. Since his connection With the peace foundation, Mr. Bryant has visited many states and has been very successful in forming branch organ izations. Mr. Bryant is a most interest ing personage and is earnest and logical In his advocacy of the movement for in , ternational peace and arbitration and the gradual disarmament of the leading na tions. He contends that the mad pace now' set by the leading powers in the building of battleships must sooner or later result in national bankruptcy and be the cause of much distress and suffer ing among the people. He advocates a code of international law by which all nations shall be bound and that all disputes shall be submitted to a court composed of the great men of the several nations. He states, however, that the founders of the peace movement are aware that this? cannot be accom plished in a day, but rather that it will take some time to bring it to a final consummation. He says the longer the ] matter is delayed the greater the bur- j ileuti the people will have to bear. Differs With Hobson ■^fc^i<,hne'n asked as to his views about the peace movement as advocated by <Captain Hobson. Mr. Bryant stated I that he bad an interview with the cap- j tain and that he agreed with him ex- j cept as to his “greater navy” propo- j wition. He stated that if the United \ States would build four more battle ships, it would only increase the tr** mendous burdens by reasons of wur debts that the European nations are groaning under as it would mean the building of four or more warships by them in order to keep pace with the other nations. In reference to the movement in tiif south be said that it was most encour aging and that at the Southern com mercial congress at Mobile the move ment bad received an impetus that would spread it over the southern states with irresistable force and re sult in much permanent good. Since $iis visit to Mobile Mr. Byyant has vis ited New Orleans and Montgomery Where he delivered several lectures, and met with much uuqcess in form ing branch organizations. He is much Impressed by the possibilities of tin* south in industrial and agricultural lines. He said the northern people i were beginning to realize the great : awaking of the agricultural progress | of the south through diversified farm- i tng and with the inauguration of th“ rural credits system ns it is in vogue In Europe. The south will prosper and grow. Peace Resolution The resolutions offered and adopted at the congress in Mobile was presented by Mr. Bryant immediately after the wpeocli of President Wilson, which h said was one of the greatest speeches ho had ever heard. The resolutions were as tallows; “The Southern Commercial (’ongress this day, October U8. 1913, assembled In Mobile, Ala., hereby votes tin* Pana ma Peace Resolutions; we desire to tee promoted a universal effort among commercial bodies for the establish ment of official international confer ences for the purpose of furthering a •world-wide feeling of friendliness and good-will and assuring, between the nations the existence of arbitral juris diction conceived in lhe widest sense of the term, and of a nature to assure ■.n equitable solution of all internation al disputes either between individuals of different nations or between the nations themselves; that universal trade and commerce may be unimpeded by war and the present burdensome preparations of war. “Furthermore, in the spirit of that profound, a*nd. it may be epoch-mak Make yours one ot the . homes where the drudgery and ineffi ciency of the Washer woman are no longer t known And where the ultra of convenience is enjoyed through sending your clothes to a good laundry. 377— PHONE—S77 j The Wagon Comes ' ) ing address delivered liy our Honored President, Woodrow Wilson, to the Southern Commercial congress, on October 27, we hereby resolve to voice the international principles he then ad vanced and we earnestly urge all citi zens of our beloved land to support to the uttermost all official endeavor to have the United States of America es tablish its foreign policy on a basis of morals, rather than on a basis of ex pediency, thus declaring to our sister nations throughout the world the only secure foundation for all international relations.” -%_ LETTERS TO EDITOR Mississippi Man's View To the Editor of The Age-Herald: I see that there is to be a senatorial race in your state between Messrs. Un derwood and Hobson. Now, this is the way three-fourths of the citizens of out state (Mississippi) view that race: If the people of Alabama wish to have a lot of battleships blown up, send Hobson. If they wish to be represented in the United States Senate by one of the brightest1 gems of the nation, send Underwood. Respectfully yours. DR. EDWIN WADE. Jackson, Miss., October 31, 1913. 337 Rankin street. - : Sees Danger in Peace Propoganda To the Editor of The Age-Herald: Now that tile Carnegie project for tile! celebration of one hundred years- of peace i between the United States and Great j Britain is assuming such dangerous pro-1 portions, it behooves the press of the1 United States to sound the alarm against the giving of subscriptions by the pub lic to this fund. The whole project is notidng more or less than a diplomatic move on the part of the British government, to ward off the wrath of Germany, who is only stay ing her hand, for reason of the implied threat that the United States will come to the rescue of Great Britain in the event of war between the latter nation and Germany. rtnuicw t armgre, wun me ante as sistance of Elihu Root and Joseph H. Choate, is the apostle who is spending millions to promulgate this doctrine, and! it is high time that the United States ambassadors abroad, who are his tools in this misrepresentation, were recalled. The interference of the United States government in the Moroccan dispute be tween Germany and Great Britain* was a disgraceful act of treason on the part of the handful of American officials who, without the knowledge or sanction ol' the American people, definitely informed Germany that any further Insistence on her part of conditions which were not acceptable to Great Britain, would mean that the United States would hack Great Britain up with men and arms. Later, when William Howard Taft was elected President of the United States, Germany, who had not altogether lost faith in American neutrality, again ap proached Great Britain with a view to the settlement of the dispute. Immediate ly the United States Atlantic fleet was j dispatched to English waters and Com- ( mander Sims of Admiral Murdock’s flag-! ship, the Minnesota, delivered an official I speech in London in which he said that! * ‘if England were threatened with an ex j ternal foe she could count upon every j man, every dollar and every drop of blood in the United Slates.” To tlie American public the dispatch of the Atlantic fleet to British waters in | mid-winter was regarded as a very pleas- | ant and enjoyable cruise for the officers and men of the tieet. The truth of the i move was known to the British and Ger- j man governments and the Carnegie pro-j British annexationists in the United States government. Germany was again obliged to stay her hand; but immediately increased her na val programme. Having been subjected to American diplomatic intervention on two critical occasions when pressing for a settlement of demands with Great Britain, Germany had every reason to believe that the Uni ted States government was representing public opinion in America, by tlie pro British sympathies manifested hv two successive administrations. 'In consequence of this anti-German at titude in American diplomatic circles, the German government decided to mani fest its resentment of American public professions of friendship for Germany, and diplomatic private threats, by refus ing to take any part in the Panama canal exposition at San Francisco in 1915. When the Wilson administration came into office the German government was keenly alive to note any change iri the diplomatic antagonism of the United States. There appeared to he a strength ening of the Anglo-American bond by means of tire Carnegie "peace” activities, and Germany was, therefore, only moved to a greater resentment when she learned that in January, 1914. the Atlantic fleet was to be again despatched to European waters. January, 1914, synchronizes with the date of settlement for German claims against Great Britain, and once again we shall find the power of the United States navy backing up Great Britain in European waters. This contemplated “paimt” of tlie At lantic fleet to the Mediterranean in Jan uary next, is another- instance of Great Britain holding our American fleet over the hear! of Germany as a big stick. Very little money is being subscribed by the British public to celebrate Car negiean "peace.” although the expen sive newspaper advertisements, which in one week alone are said to have cost $40,000, state that one of the principal oh- 1 jeots of the movement is "a revision of historical textbooks with a view to the elimination of anti-British coloring and emphasizing the benefits of the hundred years peace.”. i nave read some or tnese revised histories written by the Carnegie em ployes, and the manner in which they seek to “emphasize” that George Wash ington was an upstart adventurer, and Jefferson and all the heroes of the war of independence, a set of self-seeking in competent rebels, would cause the heart of Benedict Arnold to beat with satisfac tion. No American worthy of the name will subscribe, in any way to Carnegie's “peace” fund: and no man, woman or child should hesitate to life up their voice in loud protest when they hear the plausi ble professors, who are so handsomely paid by the Carnegie “peace” fund, re peat at their well advertised lectures that “after all, we must he very fair and log ical and accept the recently discovered evidence, that Washington was a very ordinary man; a poor ta»tb’lan; also that the Declaration of Independence was only a chimerical campaign document, written by a little band of revolutionary rebels and adventurers.” A coat of tar and feathers, and n ride out of town on a rail, would do much to curb the treasonable speeches and pro British sentiments of these poor syco phants. A word to the wis** Verv truly, LILLIAN SCOTT TROY. London, W. C\, October 18. 1913. Trafalgar buildings, Trafalgar Square. Auditorium on the Snnthc:de To the Editor of The Age-Herald. In the outset we dismiss the idea of locating the auditorium In one of the downtown parks as entirely too reac tionary in modern city development. This at once opens the question of the South side as against the Northside for a site ! approximately 200 feet by 140 feet. This question may he presented in at least two phases, one from the stand point of the city, and one from the stand point of the Southsi 1e itself. From the standpoint of the city even ness of development at once suggests it self. The Northside already has all the important public buildings except a few fire stations, schools and hospitals The fairness of continuing this policy may be seriously questioned. If the city itself l A SUDDEN TERMINATION | Judge C. B. Smith Brings a Case to an Obrupt Close and It Went Off the Docket ll> CHARLES II. MA>US ^’hat many* cases are "worn out In court" by being continued from time to time cannot be questioned by any one at all familiar with the courts of Jef ferson county. There is not much trou ble getting a case set but getting it tried is another proposition. It not un frequently happens that a case will stay in court so long that one or other of the litigants die before the case is tried and "abated by death,** goes on the record. Generally the fact that a party to a case, whether criminal or civil, is dead is revealed when the docket for the day is sounded by the judge, or j soon after and the case goes off the books and is ended. One day last week a case was called in tlie circuit court presided over by Judge*C. B. Smith with I* J. Haley and J. H. McNeal as opposing counsel. The case had come up on appeal from a lower court and although the plaintWf was absent both sides announced ready. After the usual preliminary skirmishes were over witnesses were placed on the stand and the merits of the case gone into. After the case hail been in progress several hours a man walked up to Judge Smith and held a whispered con ference at the end of which Judge Smith said: “Gentlemen, the further hearing of this case will be dispensed with.” “What’s that," said both the dis tinguished attorneys almost in the same breath. “I said the further hearing of the case must stop." replied the youthful Jurist with much firmness. Both attorneys were at a loss to fathom the reason why the case should come to such a sudden termination and after insisting that the case should go on one of them said: "Judge, would you mind telling us why you Insist that the case be ter minated just at this point?" “Not at all," blandly replied Judge Smith. "The plaintiff in this case is dead and furthermore, gentlemen, the plaintiff has been dead Jhree months.” The case went on the docket and two attorneys found they had business elsewhere. does not discriminate against the South side, but.actually enters upon a policy of developing the Southside, naturally tax values will rise in that neighborhood. Jt may be asked pertinently how much increase of taxes would accrue to the city from placing another public building on the Northside. Again, the whole city is vitally concerned in me matter of eliminating the grade crossings that now’ divide the city into two distinct parts by a mostfartifieial barrier. YVe submit that the more the Southside is recognized oy the city itself, the stronger will be its claim for the elimination of the grade crossings. By this same token greater street car facilities may be looked for, when the Southside is more fully come into its own. Can there be any doubt that the location of the auditorium on the Southside will encourage added street car development.? And this opens up at once the accessibility of the Southside under present conditions. By actual measurement it may be shown that any lot on the Southside between Eighteenth and Twenty-second streets and not farther back than the northside of Avenue D is nearer the middle point of First avenue and Twentieth street than is the center of Capitol park, East park or West park. This means that the audi torium can be placed on the Southside and necessitate less walking for tnose from the tire suburbs who get off at First avenue ana Twentieth street, and do not wait for a transfer than if they got off at the same point and walked to the center of the above mentioned parks. If any transfer to the Southside, any lot above will be in two blocks or less of the car line even w'ith tlie present facili ties. Again, on the Northside any lot outside of the parks themselves would prove very expensive. From the standpoint of common jus tice to the Southside, we would cite the fact that for years this section has been paying taxes and must continue to do so. Should it not have some snare of the city’s patronage? The main public build ings are now on the Northside. The city now lias a chance to do something for the Southside. \Vi11 it use it, or will the Northside still get the lion s share? To sum up. The Southside rests its plea this time on the following points: Economy. Evenness of city development. The bearing on the viaduct question. Nearness. Preservation of our parks. It may be finally suggested that the city owns valuable corners at Eighteenth and Avenue 1!> and at Nineteenth and Avenue 1 I) on the Southside. one a negro school, the other a fire station. Either corner might be used for the auditorium. A. S. KEYCE. Birmingham, October 31, 1913. About Illegal Voting To the Editor of The Age-Herald. I have read with interest anti ap- i proval your editorial criticism in this j morning’s issue of our election law. ) I wish to commend you. as I think all} good citizens will, for having the eour- I age to speak out on the subject. Some- j tiling reftliy should be done about R. Some of us will not soon forget that a few y«*ars slnt*«*. out of an electorate of possibly 90,000 qualified voters, about. 127,000 votes were polled in this state, j If there resulted one prosecution- or ! one conviction, the fact has escaped my \ notice. Whether our election law is so gen- J orally disregarded as is sometimes claimed may he doubted; certainly no patriotic citizen would wish to think so. But that it is open to such wide spread and serious suspicion, that it is seldom spoken of except In terms of contempt, seems to me to be anything but a happy condition. It is a trite saying that whatever strikes at the purity of our ballot tends to undermine aJl respect for law and government. Such a condition is cause for genuine alarm. To exact certain requirements which will he met by the conscientious voter, and then allow the man who a-booses to disregard the law equal voice with hlm# in the direction of the affairs of state, is a grave injustice— to state the case in I he mildest way. It is more than that. It Is a wrong done to the mnn. by fostering in him a spirit of contempt for the law, tending to ul timate contempt for all law. It is a hurt to tlie state, delivering the deci sive voice in Its affairs to men who either do not respect its laws or who are too careless to conform to them. As suggested in your editorial, many men doubtless vote illegally who are not conscious of their disqualification. I can think of no more effective way of relieving this condition than by a rigid and impartial inforcement of the law. That these men are not aware of their disqualification con mean notlftng else than that they have not been sternly reminded of It by finding them selves debarred from voting. On this point it s«eins sufficient to raise just one question: If t lie present law were firmly enforced, would we now have such a large body of good citizens who have lost the legal right of franchise? With many other men \*lio have j thought often and seriously, on this I subject, J trust that this utterance is hut the opening note of a campaign in j which The Age-Herald may lead the i press or the e»t*re state In demanding ' a better enforcement of the present law j and. if it seems needed, ultimately a | better law on the subject. HENRY M. STEVENSON. | Birmingham, October 30, 1913. Improving Farm Conditions To the Editor of The Age-Herald. Your issue* of this date is indeed an interesting one to read, as most of your issues are; though this one is especially of interest because of the verv thought ful attention you are giving and ex press in your editorials. “Alabama Land Congress,” and “Hog Clubs Next.’’ It should be, and T am sure it is a j source of much gratification to the peo- I pit* of Alabama to see a newspaper of j tin importance of The Age-TTorald do ' voting Its space and the thought of I its editors to the great question of cor recting the economic errors that our people engaged in agricultural pursuits have been the victims of for so long .i time. Sentiment rules, and tlie greatest 1 need of this state for the past several years has been the help of the press;! the business and professional men, who | are the leaders iri whatever progress this commonwealth makes, with the progressive farmers in creating a seiiti * ment favorable to the highest develop ment and success of the Alabama far mer. For too long a time the farm was ne glected and its people were not given :he consideration that their position ui he business economy of the state en itleri them to. and in consequence the steady flow of the young men from the farm and into other lines of business has kept the standard down, and al owed the fearful economic conditions hat have existed to go without any ef fort to correct, that wag at all com mensurate with the Importance of the situation. Indeed there has been wonderful progress in Alabama during the last hree or four years in various branches :>f farm industry, as you so encourag mgly state, and especially is the fact >f the increase in the corn crop grati fying. When we rem< mber that Ala bama has been importing approximate ly 50,000,000 bushels of corn for the past several years, which corn has been costing the ultimate consumer in the neighborhood of $1 per bushel; and -bat the corn could have been pro 3uced upon the farms of Alabama at a ‘ost of production not exceeding 40 •ents per bushel, thereby losing the lifference between the cost to produce and the price paid, it is no wonder that nur people are no better fixed financial ly, and that we have done no more toward improving and developing our farming interests. This $30,000,000 loss attributable to our economic error of •uying corn alone is simply enormous, 'nd when we qonsider that the same is true of oats, hay, and other feed stuffs for our animals, and of meat, lard and canned meats and canned vegetables and fruits of food for ourselves, to thoughtful men the importance of such moves as the Alabama Land congress and the efforts that are being put forth by the department of agriculture of the United States, the state department of agriculture, the colleges, the bankers’ association, the railroad companies and the citizens generally is at once real ized. The greatest force in the correction of the errors that our people have been making is the press, and especially the large dallies of the cities that were for so long a time careless of the agricul tural interests of the state. I have been engaged in what is usually re ferred to as “Farm Demonstration Work” in Alabama for the past several years, first with the United States de partment of agriculture and later with the Sduthern Railway company’s de partment of farm Improvement work, and I am sure that the value of the co operation of the newspapers in the work of Introducing better methods upon the farms, and the correction of economic errors that our farmers have been making, is inestimable. I am In deed glad to see the papers of greater importance, such as The Age-Herald, give attention to these great questions and lend their influence in the work of bringing back the proper “dignity” to the occupation of farming.

The mayoralty nominee is Edward E. McCall for Tam many and John Purroy Mltchel, for the fusion ticket, marked time except for one address by Mltchel to German-American citizens. Hut Sulzer was attacked as an alleged suborner of perjury and his in dictment threatened in connection wifcr certain testimony before the high court of impeachment that convicted him. State Senator James D. McClelland said evidence would be placed before the dis trict attorney of Albany county this week relating to the testimony of Duncan W.
