Ml GUESTS UNABLE
TO ATTEND DINNER
Williams and Underwood
Send Messages Paying
Tribute to Harding
The presure of business in Washing
ton in getting the federal reserve bank
in operation will prevent John Skelton
Williams, comptroller of the currency,
being preent at the dinner to be given
W. I*. G. Harding by the Birmingham
Newspaper club, May 27. Information
to tills effect was received in Birming
ham yesterday by the officials of the
Newsapper club. Oscar W. Underwood,
who was also invited to he present to
do honor to Mr. Harming, in a note to
the press club officials says that busi
ness in tlie House will make it impos
sible for him to come home on that,
occasion.
Although Mr. Williams and Mr. Un
derwood will not b>* here, there will be
many prominent figures at the dinner.
Charles Henderson, governor-elect of
labania. from whom business men ex
pect so much during his administration,
will attend as well as other prominent
citizens of the state.
The telegram from Mr. Williams fol
lows :
"Would enjoy greatly being with you
at dinner to be given in honor of your
distinguished citizen, Mr. Harding, new
member of federal reserve board, on
the 27th Inst., but my engagements
here make it quite impossible for me
to be away from Washington at that
time.
\".IOHN SKELTON WILLIAMS."
In 'bis declination Mr. Underwood j
says:
"House of Representatives.
'Washington, May 13, 1914.
"I received your telegram asking me
to urge Mr. Williams to attend MK
Harding's farewell dinner, and saw’ him
ibis morning about the matter. He told
me that the pressure of other engage
ments was so great at this time that it
was impossible for him to come, and 1
was unable to change his determina
tion. X
"I also received your telegram in
viting me to be present on the 27th at
the dinner. I wish very much that I
could be there. It would give me much
pleasure to join with Mr. Harding’s
friends at home in doing honor to him
and celebrating his much-deserved ap
pointment. 1 feel that this appointment
is not only a recognition of Mr. Hard
ing’s eminent ability ns a financier, but
that it will be of great benefit to our
section and to the whole south to have
a man of Mr. Harding’s ability on the
federal reserve board that is so inti
mately in touch with our business needs
in the future. 1 would surely come if
it wrere possible for me to do so, but
the pressure of business Jn the House at
this time is such that I would have to
neglect matters of great importance if
I accepted any Invitation that would
take me away from Washington.
"Thanking you for your courtesy and
kindness in extending the invitation.
1 am cordially yours,
O. W' UNDERWOOD."

Capacity of Cement Plant at Leeds
Will Be Doubled by
July 1
Leeds, May !fl|.—(Special.)—The Stan
dard Portland Cement company is mak
ing rapid progress in the new construc
tion work and will have the capacity
doubled by July 1. Five of the “Giant
Griffin” mills, manufactured at Boston,
Bradley Pulverizer company at Boston.
Mass., have arrived and the others will
be here in a few days. Mr. Ammerson
of the Chattanooga Boiler and Tank
company is now at the plant erecting
eight large steel tanks.

completed its second set of steel towers

wires are being stretched. This will
give better service, as it will give two
new circuits to depend upon in case of
emergency.

SLOW IN DEVELOPING
\ ——
More-Hopeful Feeling, How
ever, in Iron and Steel.
Activity in Pig Iron
New York, May 15.—Dun's Review to
morrow will say:
“Furthering strengthening of confidence
is manifest as a result of the betterment
in some branches of business. Improve
ment is still slow in developing and pro
gress is not uniform, yet rather more
cheerful reports are received from the
leading centers.
•“Conditions as a whole are not entirely
satisfactory, but most advices indicate
that the trend is in the right direction.
Perhaps the best feature is the more
hopeful feeling in iron and steel, and
the signs of reviving activity apparent
both in finished lines and in pig iron.
There also Is a better sentiment in the
dry goods trade. j;
“The commodity markets displayed
somewhat more activity this week, with
the tendency, however, still towards &
lower level.
“Failures this week are 336 against 290
last year. In Canada 40 against 45.”
