LETTERS TO EDITOR Wants Business Governor To the Editor of The Age-Hqj*aid: I am for Governor Comer because Ala- ! l>ama, at this time, needs a man for gov- j ernor who has unquestionable ability as a [ business man. Governor Comer has de monstrated his business ability in ids own affairs, while governor of the state of Alabama for four years. He spent the state’s money judiciously and for the best interests of tlie citizens. We need him at this time for the same qualifications w hich he showed as governor before. He is a man of decided firmness, and the business men of Birmingham have great confidence in hi mand feel that his administration will give the state pros perity by inducing capital to invest with in its borders. Yours very truly, W. M. COSBY. Birmingham, May 4. 1914. Gadsden Man for Comer To the Editor of The Age-fierald: From h long and intimate acquaintance with business men and business conditions in Alabama, I have no hesitancy in say ing that the business interests of this state not only do not anticipate any dis turbance of business conditions if Gover nor Comer should be elected again, but on the contrary, they believe lie will give us a just, fair, conservative administration of affairs. Mr. Comer is an experienced business man. He lias been one of the greatest developers in the state, and few of the state’s citizens have brought more investment of capital in its confines. Mr. Comer has been charged with secur ing a special coal rate of 60 cents per ton while he was governor for his cotton mills at Sylacauga. This is not true. T. with a number of other gentlemen en gaged in manufacturing, was fighting for | the 50-cent coal rate for the Gadsden. An- i niston and Talladega district years be fore Mr. Comer was a cotton manufac turer. and we secured that rate in the early part of 1905. Mr. Comer has also been charged with securing a cotton mill tax exemption law while governor. This law was put on the statute books in 1895. long before Mr. Comer had commenced to figure in state | politics. T was largely instrumental in 1 securing the passage of the law. As the | result of this tax exemption the spindles of Alabama have increased from about 250,0<ip in 1894 to about 1,000,000 at the pres ent time, and the better price the farmer! is getting for his cotton, as compared with the 4 and 5-cent cotton rate at the end of the decade 1890-1900, is due largely to increased mill building. 1 repeat, we have nothing to lose and everything to gain by the election of Mr. Comer. Very truly yours. R. A. MITCHELL. Gadsden, May 4, 1914. MINE WORKERS7” BOARD MEETS Indianapolis.

(Advertisement.) WANTS A CHANCE f S Thos. C. McDonald Tells Why Comer Should Not Be Nom inated for Governor To the Editor of The Age-Herald. As a taxpayer, 1 am always interested V in the subject of taxation—perhaps ' selfishly so—therefore I am somewhat amused at tlie reasons given by my friend George B. Tarrant for his sup port of Mi-. Comer. In nis communica tion to your valuable paper he says lie believes he (Comer) wil give a "better system of taxation." Mr. Tar rant further says: “Everyone who is familiar with our present system knows that it is cumbersome, ineffici ent and wasteful. What we need is a tax rale low enough to be equJtableT^tO all classes of property owners, as sessed and collected in a manner that will give the state the largest net re turns. We can trust Mr. Comer to do this for us. I am also for Mr. Comer because I believe he will give Alabama an administration that is clean, eco nomical and progressive—one that will make Xi>r the material and moral ad- * vancement of the state." % This all sounds mighty good; but we \, are warned by Hbly Writ that "by their fruits ye shall know them,” and while Mr. Comer served as governor for* four years, he increased taxation, made no effort to change the system and urged state and county tax com missioners to dig deep into the pocket* of the people that he might obtain the wherewith to exercise his prejudices against the Louisville and Nashville and other railroads and to carry out other of his pet policies. I submit that his administration was neither “economical nor progressive” and did not “make for the material nor moral advancement of* the state.” As to “morals," I submit that the , court records show that there were ' more violations of law during the four years of Comer's' reign than during any like period of time since Houston was inaugurated governor. J And these are some of the reasons which induce a majority of the tax payers of Alabama to desire a change by the election of Charles Henderson to tlie office of governor. T. C. M DONALD. : _ G.
