With a personal acquaintance with Ve to ustia no Carranza and his brother. Jesus, and an intimate knowledge of men and conditions in Mexico, it is probable that Dr. G. B. Crowe, who is now in Blrming bam, Is better fortified to speak of the “national topic” than any other man in Alabama. Dr. Crowe states that the Carranzas are not to be confused with bandits, cut throats, desperadoes, soldiers of fortune, or soldiers for spoils. On the other hand, he says, they arc two wise and brave men, imbued with patriotic love for their* country. Jt is Dr. Crowe’s idea that should the United States permit the Importation of arms into Mexico, and permit volunteers without restraint #or approval from this government, to cross the border and join the Carranzas, the murderous Huerta would be dethroned and possibly “hanged as high as Hainan.” It is possible,” said Dr. Crowe, “that the United States is contemplating just such a move. I noticed in The Age-Her ald of this morning that Mr. Hale, a rep resentative of this government, held a consultation with Venustiano Carranga, bead of the insur rectos, and a brave pa triot who is fighting for Mexico, not him self. Should this idea be borne out in * fact, and the rebels against Huerta be permitted to acquire arms from across the Rio Grande, and volunteers from America be given an opportunity to go into, the old country, the revolution, in my opinion, would be quickly brought to an end. This is what all the people de sire. It could be accomplished quicker than should this government enter Mexl t oo with its army, and would result in no great loss of American lives or enormous expense to this country.” Dr. Crowe has a gold mine and other! property in Mexico. He knows the court- | try. the men of the country, and is nat urally deeply interested in the situation.! He describes the Carranzas as being «»f the Modern type-gentlemen—as con-! trasted to the type of Mexican represented j by Huerta. LARGER STORE FOR BIGGS ANTIQUE CO. Will Make Birmingham the Southern Distributing Point, According to Head of the Company The Biggs Antique company of Rich Jltnond will make Birmingham its southern ; distributing point. And In order to take care of the prospective increased busi ness it Is announced that the store space now used at Fourth avenue and Twenty first street will be greatly increased. Ne gotiations looking to tiie larger space are now under way, it is asserted, and if not interrupted will be concluded during the next few days. J. F. Biggs of Richmond, head of tho firm, was here yesterday perfecting ar rangements for the new work. It is an nounced upon the authority of Mr. Briggs that the increased facilities will include a new shop, a new department for drap eries. curtain* and such work, while the show' rooms with the antique furniture and colonial designs will bo almost en tirely rearranged. The company re cently closed out its store in Atlanta, but decided that Birmingham was entitled not only to the district store, but geograph ically was the logical place for southern distribution. The agency for the Biggs company was established here about a year u^o. Since lha.t time some of the more important renovations for clubs, private homes and other places have been handled by this concern. The success of the local agency under Manager Rloyd. is said to have convinced President Biggs of the company that Bir mingham was rip© for the larger agency.

It was pointed out that this money no doubt is good and will appear, but nevertheless it was not entered upon pledge cards but only promised and no official cognizance will be taken of any subscriptions that are not entered upon properly signed pledge cards. Must Be Entered on Card The first day's result of $9473 and yes terday’s $9621, therefore, is all that has been officially counted by the auditor of the campaign, Thomas Bowron of the First National bank, who is acting for Dr. George PI. Denny, president of tiia university. It was emphasized that the other money is good and all that, but It will not he counted until It is entered upon official campaign pledge cards. ’Hie team of M. V. Joseph and W. D. Tyler again won the daily pennant yes terday when they reported $2005, more than any other team. The ladies’ pennant was won away from Mrs. Elias Davis by Mrs. Culpepper Exum and her team, who reported $787. The ladies’ teams yesterday reported $1722.50 and the men’s teams $7S99. The ministers of the city have been invited to be the guests of the campaign workers at the luncheon at 12:30 today and all who are in the city are expected. There are many of the pastors of the city, however, who are absent at. confer ences, presbyteries and similar religious meetings. Mrs. F. B. Dodge introduced an inno vation into the campaign yesterday when she offered a beautiful sandwich tray as a prize to the member of her team who gets tin most money during the campaign. The luncheon yesterday was well at tended and the most enthusiastic yet held. The cheering and singing of the workers sounded like a class day at a big college. As each team reported it was applauded and cheered and when some team made a good report it was given an ovation. The luncheons are entertaining and unlike any ever had in any similar campaign in the city. A largo, blackboard has been placed in the campaign headquarters in the Hill man banquet room, and there the daily report figures are tabulated. Neproes Form Team Some of the teams, it is stated, are busily working in the outlying sections of the city and, therefore, have so far found it hard to get into the luncheons to make reports. They are expected to show up today. It was announced yes terday that the negroes of the city have formed a committee and they will meet today at the Penny Savings bank build ins. where Dr. J. D. S. Davis. Dr. L. C. Morris, Dr. J. A. Mebester and ,Dr. J. Hess Snyder will meet with them and explain the work. A feature yf the luncheon yesterday was a short speech by Dr. W. T. Berry, who had been an opponent of the dis pensary movement, and who refused to see a team of solicitors which called on him. P Berry stated that his (itti tude was due entirely to misinformation as to the ownership of the dispensary to be erected He said he had been mis informed and that whan he was told the truth-that it belonged to the state university—he apologized to the commit tee, sent word for them to come back, made a subscription and is r.ow going to work in the campaign.

It is believed here that Birmingham and Jefferson county will suffer more I from no extra session than any other community in the state, and there is a determined effort on foot here not to al- j low the matter to drop for a moment.1 No particular shape was taken yesterday by what it seems will be fresh entreaties to Governor O’Neal to call the extra ses sion, but several were discussed. Ono of them was a train load of the most prom I Inent and influential business and proft's I sional men of the city, headed by the city commissioners, to go to Montgomery in a body and pray the governor to give Birmingham some relief in her financial predicament .and her fee system malady. The members of the city commission are disappointed, but they will nay very little. They had counted much on the ru mored extra session. Judge A. O. Lane stated frankly that no extra session meant a further retrenchment In the city government and a stringent retrenchment at that. “We want to go ahead, to pro gress, if wo can," said Judge Lane, “but w’e’ll have to go backwards unless we get some immediate relief from an extra session." As to further retrenchment in the cltv government. City Commislsoner Weath erly was reticent. He stated that the commission had already decided to re trench In every manner possible and it couldn’t do any more, whether there was or was not an extra session. All of the commissioners expressed the opinion that renewed entreaties would bo made to the governor in the near future. IIHHMIHHIHMUtHMMIHMIlIH »«•••••« •••••••• | FANCY WANTS A DOG By ELMS C. HOLLI MS I “Fancy’s*' In distress. In The Age-Her ald yesterday morning she announced that she wanted a little dog, and she natural ly expected that her little owners would Hock to the Peerless Lumber plant with dogs galore. Well, there were but few dogs sent in and none of them were ac ceptable. That is why “Alias Fancy” is in distress. She cannot understand why she should not have a dog if she wants it. Everyone wants companionship. Of course, “Curly” pets her sometimes, but she wants something that walks on four legs to he with her all the time. “Miss Fancy” belongs to the children of Birmingham. Now, if any little boy or girl in this great city of Birmingham wants to make a real “lilt** with Miss Fancy,” he or she will come forward with la dog:. If the doff is rather small and has been brought up in the way he or she should go, “Miss Fancy” will take it to her heart, and will forever bless the little one who donates it. The elephant is used to having a pet of her own, and it is usually u dog. In the circus she had a little puppy always near her, and she misses him very much here in Birmingham. She will not love tlie children less if they present her with a. dog, for her heart is plenty large enough to have a place for all Birmingham’s chil dren in addition to a little pet of her very own. The elephant was presented to the chil dren of this city for a pet. She is a pet of the children at the zoo and now she wants something that she can pet. A dog would 1111 the bill, and if any little child will call at the zoo this afternon with a dog it will be thankfully received by •‘Miss Fancy.” ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••a***•••••* GEORGIA VISITOR LAUDS BIRMINGHAM Thinks This City Is Much More Progressive Than Atlanta Col. J. Hantie Crawford of Koine, <Ja., one of the best known attorneys of north Georgia, is in Birmingham a few days on business, lie has been here only once in the past 11 years and as all visi tors are who stay away that length of time, he was amazed at the greatness of this city and the progress made since his last visit. He was unusually interested in the various new skyscrapers that have risen to in the past few years. “Birmingham is one of the best looking places thut I have ever visited,” saJd Colonel Crawford. “1 have often believed that Atlanta was some town, but to see Birmingham is to change that opinion. Blmingham has it all over Atlanta In my opinion. Not only from this point of view is Birmingham great, but from every other way. I see more hustle and progress here than most any place. Everyone on the streets appears to be engaged in some business which requires haste. Then again in the shopping dis trict I have been impressed with the beauty of the ladles passing by. Few cities can claim %any advantage in that respect for it seemed to me that the beauty of the whole south was concen trated in one block of Birmingham yes terday.” “T hope.” continued Colonel Crawford getting Into politics, “that the people of this state will elect Underwood. In our state I believe he would get a Im mense majority. We think that Under wood more than any one man has con tributed to the success of President Wil son and that Mr. Underwood IS entitled to the honors of his home state. I am sure that the thoughful citizens of this community will return Mr. Underwood to Washington, and not only that to the upper house.” Colonel Crawford will be here several days.

PIATT OFFERS TO Veterinary Will Charge the City Nothing for His Services lr was announced last night that L>. A. Piatt, M. D. C., V. S., would offer his services gratis to the city of Bir mingham to attend the animals at the zoo. Dr. Piatt is a veterinary surgeon of note and has had more than 12 years experience in his work. Dr. Piatt graduated from the Ontario Veterinary college in 1891 with the degree of M. D. C., and it was In 1898 that he graduated from the Chicago Veterinary college with the degree of V. S. He afterwards studied “human medicine’’ for a year and has been in Birmingham five years. Dr. Piatt has had some experience in treating wild animals and says that he assisted Jn placing a plaster on a lion belonging to the Hagenbeck cir cus. This was mafny years ago and the Hagenbeck and Wallace people had not formed a partnership at that time. That Dr. Piatt’s reputation extends beyond the confines of his own state 13 evidenced by the fact that the doctor has just returned from Lexington, Ky., where lie was called by R. E. Wilson to perform operations on three valuable horses. Mr. Wilson said that he could not afford to take a chance on anl muls that were so valuable, and this was his reason for sending to Rirmlng ham lor Dr. Piatt. l>r. Piatt will make a formal offer to the city commission today and there can hardly be any doubt that, it will be accepted. He offers to act as family physician, so to speak, for all the ani mals bcdoning to the zoo, and the charge is nothing. EXPECT HEW MOVE IN KELLEY MATTER —.

This was the announcement of Park Keeper Wil liamson last night and it was hailed with delight by both “Miss Fancy” and "Curly.” “Miss Fancy'* is not displeased with her quarters at the Peerless Lum ber plant but. of course, everyone likes to be in one's own home, where there will be no danger of imposing upon good nature. The new homo of ''Miss Fancy” is only a temporary structure and will be replaced by a more pretentious resi dence Just ns soon as the city en gineer can get the plans drawn for a building sufficient to accommodate nil the animals at the zoo. Will He Home Sunday “Miss Fancy” will bo “at home" to the children of Birmingham all day Sunday and there Is no doubt that thousands will make party calls. She will bo at the zoo this afternoon, so “Curly” says, anil he hopes to keep her there from this time forward. When she started for the zoo yes terday afternoon “Miss Fancy” en countered a box car at the entrance of the Peerless Lumber company’s plant. .She looked it over calmly and then literally walked into It, pushing it down the track a sufficient distance to give her a good leeway to make the passage over the bridge. And it ap peared to be th« easiest thing imagi nable. She did not strain a muscle and walked on without any undue “pants.” The children swarmed about “Miss Fancy” yesterday even' more than they did on the previous day. Many of them are getting to know her and treat her as though she were a playmate. She is rapidly slipping into a state of men dicancy because of the children petting and pampering her so much. The lit tle ones were thronged about'her yes terday three deep and she waved her trunk in front of each of the kiddies in a manner truly supplicating. liispoNPH or reanuts tjiuckly Sim wanted peanuts and there were but few In the crowd. One or two of the children had a hag. however, and Miss Fancy" kept her trunk in front of the little chaps with great porsist ance. She was not satisfied with one or 1 wo peanuts, either. She waited until she bad a good trunkful before shoot ing them up into her capacious mouth. The peanuts could not, in the nature of tilings, last, long at the rate they were being disposed of and soon “Miss Fancy” Mas eating grass again. The « hiidren wore enthusiastic when it came to feeding grass to the elephant and all of them had a hand in it. Someone had a camera at the a.-»o yesterday and it was suggested that a photo of the kiddies and elephant be taken. “Miss Fancy” was not averse and she moseyed up to the money cage ("Louie" retired, too), and laid herself down on the gravel. The little ones crawled up on her back and gathered around her in ;i mass and the manswilh the camera not a good view of the bunch. She then went down to the spring with a coterie of devoted ad mirers following after and posed for another picture. After this the kiddies strung out in procession with "Miss Fancy * as leader and still another pic ture was taken. Tries to Duck Keeper "Curly” was anxious to have a view' made of her in the water and "Miss Fancy” waded into the pool. Hhe got out In the middle, where the water was about knee-deep to her, and become • diseased with a notion to duck her keeper. She evidently thought it would he a very good joke to throw him off in the water, but lie bung on like grim death and finally she desisted. He told her to lie down and she did so, he scrambling to keep on top all the while. She stretched her full length In the water and half her head was sub merged. The photographer worked fast, however, and she was soon on her feet again, und "Curly” placed himself on tHe dry aide of her head in order to keep ids clot lies dry. After all the pictures had been napped "Miss Fancy” was permitted to crop grass. When "Curly" wanted her to conic »«* him he would cry out "Hedaboothu! and the lady would turn and come In the direction of the sound. The children soon took up the cry and nearly every "kid” on the grounds called “Hedabootha.” when he had something to give to the pet. When "Curly” wants her to stand still he says ”Taet!” in a sharp tone and Bhe stands instantly. The little ones -it the zoo yesterday quickly cuught up the Indian words and when “Miss Fancy" got too close would cry out the mystic word and she would stand until they had cleared the wa*. EXPECT REPORT OF JUDGE DILLON SOON IN REGARD TO BONDS Mr. Weatherly Still Thinks Parks Are Available as Auditorium Site WOULD NOT MAKE IT LESS A PARK As Long as It Is a People’s Audi torium and Not Private Enterprise, Does Not llelieve It Would Conflict With Deeds No word lias been received from Judge John F. Dillon of New York, who has under examination the audi torium bond issue, but it is expected that his report on the validity of the issue will be received here within <lay or two. Immediately upon receipt: of his opinion the bonds will be ad vertised for sale if he holds they are valid, of which there seems not the slightest doubt. City Commissioner Weatherly stated yesterday that os a tentative proposi tion ho still believed the auditorium could be legally erected in any one of the city parks. lie stated, however, that he had not given the matter thorough consideration and spoke merely in au off-hand way. “Grant that the deeds or dedication of the parks to the city state that they shall be used for nothing except publi.> parks or ornaments of* public parks.'* he said, “and does that eliminate an auditorium? What is a public park and what is a public auditorium? Does not the uses and characteristics of the oiiu coincide with the other?
