What gives every evidence of being a
white slave case was uncovered and pre
vented by local police officers, assisted by
Birmingham officials, when a pretty 14
year-old girl was detained by local offi

girl, who resides in Birmingham, arrived

charge. The girl came here Vo meet a
woman who is now under arrest in Bir
mingham on n charge of violating the
Mann white slave act. The girl was
placed under arrest upon advice received
by the local police from Chief Bodeker
of Birmingham. She registered here un
der an assumed name and gave Atlanta as
her home. At the time of her detention
she had in her possession part of the
baggage of the woman who was to meet
her here.

Says He Will Insist on His
Friends Maintaining Dig
nified Attitude Dur
ing the Campaign
Says if Anyone Doubts His Attitude
Toward the Webb Bill, Let Them
Ask Congressman Webb
Oscar W. Underwood,- the demo
cratic leader of Congress, who Is a
candidate* for the Senate, refused yes
terday to yield to the importunities
of his friends when they urged him
to apply the ‘shorter and uglier” word
in refutation of the charges which his
opponent. Congressman Hobson, has
seen proper to bring against him.
"There are two ways in which one
might (leal with an opponent who says
anything with or without regard to
fact,” declared Air. Underwood. "The
one way is to call him a liar and the
other is to prove that what he has said
is untrue. In the present campaign, J
will insist that my friends, however
great the temptation to do otherwise,
will act with dignity.
"Whatever Captain Hobson might
say in a frenzied effort to prove that
I have not been consistent in my ef
forts in behalf of the people, 1 will
prove to be untrue.”
lo (.ompers and Webb
Mr. Underwood was preparing to
leave for Dothan. lie repeated his
former statement to the end that he
would decline to join Captain Hobson
in a "mud bath." However, it is
known that he is preparing to go still
deeper into the record of his opponent,
and tell the people of Alabama just
what that opponent has accomplished,
and just what he has not accomplished.
"Jjjist night," said the democratic
leader, "a number of my friends of
the labor unions inquired of me con
cerning charges made that 1 had voted
against certain ‘eight-hour bills.’ I
told them that I had always given to
labor what labor desired. I told them
also not to accept my statement or that
of my opponent, but to go to headquar
ters. I advised them to ask Samuel
Gompers, and declared that I would
abide by any statement that he might
make in way of reply.
"Mr. Hobson has stated that I voted
against the Webb bill, it is a matter
of fact that had I desired I could have
prevented the passage of that bill. Jf
there are any who doubt my friendship
to that anti-shipping measure, 1 refer
them to its author, Congressman I. Y.
Webb of North Carolina."
“Jackson and Lawrence Know"
Mr. Underwood went deeper into the
discussion of Hobson’s charges in re
gard to the Webb bill.
"No man," he said, “knew better than
Captain Hobson that his charges wer.i
untrue. For before the elections last
fall, Hobson came to me in regard to
the bill. I told him that at that time j
1 was unwilling that it be considered !
by the House. Just before the elec- !
tions was an illogical time to pass an i
anti-shipping bill. But I told Captain !
Hobson then that as soon as the elec- j
tions were over, 1 would see that it '
was introduced, and would do my best
in securing its passage.
"Fred M. Jackson, who was on the'
stage at the Hobson meeting las:
night, and the Rev. Brooks Lawrence
know what my position was in regard
to the Webb bill before its passage
and after its passage. Therefore, I
do not think that Captain Hobson will
be sustained even by his own follow
ing in an attempt to misrepresent my
position in this matter. If anybody is
in doubt, inquire of the author of th< i
bill. Congressman Webb, and he will
sustain all that I have said in this re* I
“Captain Hobson Can't Dodge”
Mr. Underwood does not intend to per
mit Captain Hobson to evade the equal
suffrage question by declaring that it is
not an issue “because Underwood stands I
where 1 do.” In this regard, Mr. Under
wood said:
“I do not know where Captain Hobson
stands at the present time in regard to
equal suffrage. At one time, however,
he made a light for female suffrage on the
floor of tho House. My position is not the
position of Captain Hobson. I have al
ways contended that the matter was one
for the states to decide, and that as far
as 1 was concerned, I would not oppose it
in Alabama when a majority of the good
white women of Alabama declare in its
“.Last summer Miss Jane Addams and
a committee urged me to favor a consid
eration by the House of their bill provid
ing for an amendment in regard to equal
suffrage. I told Miss Addams that J re
gretted my inability to espouse that
cause. I told her very plainly that T was
opposed to her idea. There is little rea
son, therefore, for Captain Hobson to in
timate that I stand where he stands in
regard to female suffrage.”
Mr. Underwood here declined to discuss
Hobson’s march down Pennsylvania ave
nue at the head of a great number of suf
fragettes among whom w^ere negroes of
both sexes, all clamoring for an amend
ment to the constitution permitting them
! equal rights in all the states.
How Did Hobson Vote
Mr. Underwood was smiling that calm
smile which is apparently such a torment
to his opponent. He began discussing
other Hobson charges.
“I understand that Captain Hobson
charged that I was not in favor of giving
publicity to and limiting campaign contri
butions. The committee on election of a
President and a vice president, of which
Captain Hobson is a member, reported a
bill with the above provision^ Together
with other democrats, I supported that
bill. The Jackson substitute was offered
from the republican side. I opposed that
substitute. The original bill, out of the
committee of which Hobson is a member,
which I supported, became law and is law
He declined to admit here that Hobson's
charges were “kittenish.” He declined to
agree that * Hobson would make any
charge for the sake of and in the hope of
benefiting his candidacy.
Instead, he took up another of Hobson’s
charges. He understood that his opponent
had charged that he opposed an amend
ment to the currency bill providing
against “interlocking directors.” a ques
tion which relates, as every well posted1
congressman knows, to the matter of
trusts not the matter of currency.
Two Other Hobson Charges
In this regard, Mr. Underwood said.
“President Wilson, through Senator Glasr,
Treasurer of System on the
Stand in Frisco Receiver
ship Investigation—Big
Loans Were Made
St. Louis, November 19.—O. H. Nance,
treasurer of the St. Louis, Mexico and
Brownsville railroad, a subsidiary of the
St. Louis and San Francisco, telegraphed
to the treasurer of the latter road that
the Brownsville road could borrow from
a hank in Kingsville, Tex., if he could
be assured that the treasurer of the
Frisco would “tip off” Nance 72 hours
before any receivership proceedings were
instituted against the Brownsville.
Tills evidence was brought out late to
day at the interstate commerce commis
sion investigation- of the Frisco receiver
ship. Frank H. Hamilton, treasurer of
the Frisco, was on the stand and was
asked about a telegram which Nance
was alleged to have sent.
Wanted Overdraft
In the telegram Nance asked permis
sion to make an overdraft of $15,00u
against a Kingsville bank. Hamilton, in
bis testimony, said he did not remember
whether he gave Nance the advance tip
on the receivership proceedings against
the Brownsville line but D. E. Brown,
special examiner, .showed from telegrams
that Nance borrowed $25,000 from a bank
in Kingsville on June 12, 1013, and repaid
it on July 1. The receivership petition
against the Brownsville line was filed
three days later.
The names of five promoters who were
members of the syndicate that made $900,
000 out of the sale - of land donated by
citizens and towns of Texas to aid in
the building of the Brownsville road were
given to Commissioner Clark today by A.
T. Perkins, syndicate manager.
Perkins testified that the syndicate sold
the land and used part of the proceeds in
making imporvements in the territory tra
versed by the Brownsville road. The pur
pose o fthese improvements was to de
velop traffic.
Later these improvements were deeded
to the West Texas Abstract and Guar
anty company, which the syndicate ac
q uireci.
Mr. Perkins said the total profit of the
syndicate that sold the Brownsville road
to the ’Frisco was $3,000,000, each sub
scriber to the syndicate realizing about
75 per cent profit. There were 99 persons
in this syndicate. Among them, according
to the testimony of Perkins, were S. M.
Felton of Chicago, David R. Francis of
b’t. Louis, the St. Louis Union Trust com
pany, the Mercantile Trust company of
St. Louis and E. C. Simmons of St. Louis.
According to evidence brought out at
the hearing yesterday and today, the syn
dicaje profits made by the construction of
subsidiary lines and- their sale to the
Frisco now totals $7,038,000. In many of
these syndicates officers of the Frisco,
It has been brought out, were interested.
Secured Big Loans
Treasurer Hamilton testified that the
Frisco borrowed on short time notes In
1911 $0,000,000, $9,000,000 in 1912, and $10.
000,000 in 1913. In April. 1913, the road sold
to Speyer & Co. of New York $3,000,'>00
general lien bonds. Tha bonds were sold
by Speyer it Co. to French investors. He
said that when the receivership was insti
tuted against the Frisco the road had be
tween $2,500,000 and $3,000,000 of unpaid
vouchers lor general expenses, such as
ccal, etc.
Treasurer Hamilton also testified re
garding tlie $600,000 loan made by the
North American company to the Frisco—
the loan on which the receivership pro
ceeds were bases. The loan originally
was for $025,000, according to Hamilton,
and the original security was $8,000,000 of
the bonds of the Arizona and New Mex
ico Land company. After the loan had
been reduced to $400,000, James Campbell
of St. Louis, president of the North Amer
ican company, asked for additional se
curity. The road then put up $5,000,000 of
the capital stock and $250,000 of the bonds .
of the New Orleans and Texas railway.
stated that he was opposed to tacking this
amendment on to the currency bill.
Therefore I moved to refer it to the ju- j
diciary committee with instructions to re- i
port a bill against ‘intenocking directors’
during the coming session of Congress.
Therein has he his ground for hU charge
that I am in favor of interlocking direc
“As to the charges either made by Hob
son or contained in Ills ’organ,' that 1
voted with the trusts and against a bill
taxing white sulphur matches so high
that they could not be sold, a charge
made with remarkable and studied adroit
ness, the explanation is very simple. The
bill was advocated by the officials of the
Diamond Match company, the only match
trust in America, and was fought by the
independent companies. The Diamond
Match company went so far as to surren
der its patent on the quessi-sulphi method
of match making in order to secure the
passage of the bill. I voted against the
bill on the ground that it attempted to
use the taxing power to tax an independ
ent company out of business.”
uo to me ivecoras
Mr. Underwood \*as then asked why
Hobson aided with his vote that corrupt
lobby which fought to retain the repub
lican tax on lumber, the shelter of the
people. He said that he didn’t know the
reason. Whereupon He took up another of
the Hobson “charges.’’
“1 voted against the Weeks Appalach
ian forest reserve bill. 1 voted for the
Lever biil instead, because it provided lor
the expenditure of equal sums in the
south and north, rather than in the Green
mountains of New England. There were
no such provisions in the Weeks bill. The
Weeks bill passed, and my position, by
developments since its passage, has been
largely sustained. The south has reaped
very little benefit."
Mr.* Underwood's train was announced
at that moment.
He added Just a word: “Now, if there
are any other charges concerning which
an explanation you might desire, I will
refer you, until my return, to the record.
Go to headquarters. Look into the rec
records of both of the candidates. I will
abide by the result."
Someone then exclaimed that Hobson
was not runnning on his record. Mr. Un
derwood smiled that “Hobson-irritating"
smile and disappeared from view.

Taking the testimony in the case
where the life of W. H. Bullington, a
prominent ginner, seven miles north of

afternoon when attorney for the de
fendant and the solicitor, who is rep
resenting the state in the case of the
shooting of Walter Berry’ by’ Bullington

nesses in hopes of sustaining the guilt
or innocence of the accused.
Bullington, the defendant, in answer
to the indictment of first degree mur
der, plead that he had acted in self
defense when he sent the bullet from
a shotgun, which ended the life of
Walter Berry'. Witnesses swore on the
stand that the life 6f the defendant
had several times been threatened,
which witnesses also te^fled that Ber
ry had been several tifnes armed with
a shotgun, looking for Bullington.
Solicitor Simpson for the state con
tends that the murdered man was
stopped while on his way to Russell
ville byr W. H. Bullington and his son
Davis Bullington. who is also under in
dictment for complicity' in the crime,
and shot down without a word being

Mrs. Griffin Shot Through
Heart by William Wise
Near Enterprise
Enterprise, November 19.—(Special.)
Last night at about 10 o’clock, near Sam
son, Mrs. Len Griffin was shot and In
stantly killed by William Wise, who used
a shotgun. Mrs. Griffin’s remains will
be brought here this afternoon for inter
ment in the city cemetery tomorrow after
noon. Wise was caught and carried to
Geneva jail last night for safe keeping.
The story of the murder was told by
her 8-year-old son, in which he says that
while his father was away in the woods
opossum hunting, Will Wise came to their
home and tried to get. admission, but
found the door locked. In order to fright
en him away, Mrs. Griffin secured a gun
and with her son went to the door, in
tending to shoot out of the door to fright
en Wise away. As the door was opened,
it is alleged Wise, who was standing
close by, seized the gun before it could
be tired and snatching it from Mrs. Grif
fin’s hands, shot her through the heart,
causing Instant death.
The parties come from good families,
who now live in Coffee county, making
the deed the more regrettable.
