Much Interest in Commis sion Meeting Tuesday LANE EXPECTED BACK Believed Desire for Harmony In fluencing Commissioners in Re arrangement of Departments. Events Bearing on Case But one thing apparently is responsi ble for a considerable Interest which is being manifested already In the regular weekly meeting of the city commission tomorrow afternoon. That thing relates to the detective department of the city. What Is to be done, if anything, so far It appears is only guess work as the city commissioners have steadfastly de clined to give out any information. In cidentally, however, they have let It be known that there are developments con templated In the police and detective de partments other thai* the appointment of chief of police and the promotions which occurred last Tuesday. They have stated that these “other developments” would be delayed pending the return of Commissioner A. O. Lane to his office. Lane Expected Back Judge Lane returned to his home Sat urday after a week’s rest at a local hos ! pltal, and while few persons have yet been allowed to see him. It is stated he will be at his office today, or at least will attend the commission meeting Tuesday'. Therefore the “developments'’ held pending Judge Inane's return are being looked for. The generally accepted report is to the effect that the detective department, made a separate department from the po lice, and placed under a separate head some five or six months ago, is to again be merged with the police department and the newly appointed police chief. Martin Eagan, Is to be made the head of both. I Unusual interest is attached to such re j ports, as the separation of the detectives i and police and the appointment of Steve | Wiggins as chief of detectives, indepen dent of Chief Bodeker. was the first vis ible step taken by the city government, in the recent sensational discharge of Bodeker as chief. After the taking of the detective department out of Bodeker's bands developments followed thick and fast until the now famous police probe was started and ended with Bodeker’s removal. Opposes Separate Department Commissioner Lane, whose official du ties include charge of the police depart ment, from the very first has been bit terly opposed to the separate detectMTe department and to the men whom the other two commissioners placed at its head. In the appointment of Martin Ea gan last Tuesday it Is believed that one of the Influences which urged the ap pointment was harmony among the three commissioners. Captain Eagan has been urged for the position by Judge Lane ever since Bodeker was removed by the majority vote of the other two commis sioners. With the appointment of Cap tain Eagan bringing a return of harmony to the offices of the three heads of the city government, it is now anticipated that a further step in this direction is to be the merger again of the police and detective departments and possibly* the elimination of members of the detective department who have been a source of contention between the commissioners.

Edmonds preached the morning sermon. Dr. Edmonds spoke upon the “Beset ting Sin,” and drew for the considera tior of his congregation word pictures of unusual color. He pointed out that the besetting sin of a man may be drink, lying, infidelity to his wife or a great many sins that are as the cringing tiger awaiting a chance to crush a man. or the gnawing mouse mat gnaws and j gnaws until one’s whole life is forfeited by failure to be on guard. He argued that there was no occasion to allow a beset ting sin to get the strangle-hold nor “twist the tail of a sleeping tiger,” which W&3 to say, the sin that often watches out for an opportunity to down Its vic tim. He held perfect attention from his audience. Dr. Edmonds expressed the wish that he could effect an absolution of that discount which he avered was too often placed upon what a preacher says to men and women, simply because he Is a minister. He said that if a carpenter tells a man that such and such is his besetting sin, the man told will say that Inasmuch as he is a carpenter and there fcie not paid to tell him. that it must be so. Dr. Edmonds said it was regret able that the advice of ministers was so discounted.

General Scully An Age-Herald bulletin, announcing the fart that Dictator Huerta had refused to salute the American ting, read last even ing in the cafe of the I tlrmltighum News paper club, In which were dining 200 men and women, precipitated a demonstra tion. When the bulletin wan first pronounced there was a moment’s silence. Then some one cheered. This cheer was contagious. And eventually the caff/ reverberated with applause. The orchestra caught the pa jtiiotlc spirit, and It rendered "Dixie." There was more applause. And then there followed the animated conversation In which the excited guests expressed their opinion of the dictator of Mexico, and the probability of war between that coun try and this. In that way the news of the critical situation reached Birmingham. Later, downtown, there was wild excitement. Men lingered about the street discussing the situation.

Htadt yesterday afternoon about 2 o’clock at his home, 2017 Fifth avenue, north, on a charge of vagrancy and placed him In the city jail to be held until this morning, when a warrant will be sworn out. Stadt was also arrested yesterday morn ing by Officers Moser and Garner on charges of assault ami battery, illegal sale of liquor and running a disorderly house and placed in the city jail, but ho made bond in the sum of $:ioo and was r leased about noon. Ills arrest by detectives on the vagrancy charge followed. On the first arrest it Is alleged by Of ficers Moser and Garner that O. E. Stadt assaulted .1. T.

H is claimed that Htadt ha* been arrested many times during the past year on simi lar charges, and has numerous appeals on file from fines and sentences In the re corder's court. "Htadt’s place has continuously given us a great deal of trouble,” said Chief of Police Martin Eagan yesterday. "He de fies the police and has frequently muds uttacks on officers sent to his place. "Since the first of the year—since ( have taken charge of the police depart ment 1 have instructed the plain clothes officers to pay especial attention to ths operations of Htadt. They have paid at tention to him; In fact, they have arrested him nearly every Sunday for the past four months. However, Htadt always makes bond very easily. "In recorder’s court Stadt is always found guilty and .sent meed to a fine and Imprisonment. He then appeals. As to the number of appeals that he has on file for the higher courts I cannot tell off hand, but it numbers over 100, and it Is quite possibly double that number. As to why the higher courts do not do any thing, r cannot tell, but the fact remains that we convict him every time he is up in recorder’s court, and he then appeals and nothing else is ever* heard of ths case.” From the detective department, which has co-operated with the police depart ment in the past four months In efforts to suppress Stadt, it is stated that the Stadtg have a United States revenue license. No. 86,897. dating from July 13, 1913, to June 30, 1914, giving federal permission to sell liquor at 9hl7 Fifth avenue. This, the de tectives contend, la pritna facie evidence that the law Is being violated at the resi dence of the Stadts, which is at 2017 Fifth avenue. Lieut. T. E. Htrelt of the detective de partment last night also spoke of tha trouble this department had had with Htadt. "We have arrested him many times and convicted him In recorder's court. The cases are then appealed, and that la the last we hear of them.” For Weakness asd Loss of Appetite The Old Standard general strengthen i lng tonic, GROVE'S TASTELESS chill TONIC, drives out Malaria and builds up the system, A true tonic and sure Appetiser.
