Senator White of Alabama and Senator Hoke Smith of Georgia, have had se rious differences. Mediation has been suggested, but it is a painful subject. The statesman from Alabama and the statesman from Georgia’s differences seem irreconciliable. It may become the subject of consideration by the Senate itself. On all other subjects but this most important one they agree. They both believe T. Jefferson, who had some thing to do with the founding of the democratic party was a great man. They acknowledge that the adminis tration of Woodrow Wilson is bound to go down in history as a series of great and marvelous achievements. There is no difference of opinion over canal tolls, woman suffrage, prohibition, or any of the other vexations and diffi cult problems now wrinkling the brows of great statesmen. Not at all. They believe and have an undying faith in the rule of the plain people, but upon the question of which way to jump when being approached by an automo bile, there exists between these two great legislators a difference that seems now insurmountable. Others in the Senate, colleagues of these two high strung nervous southern gentle men, all agree that something ought to be done about it. Senator Smith entertains the idea— entirely wrong, according to Senator White—that when an automobile is charging down on you that it is your duty to society and posterity that you step aside briskly to the left. Senator White is obslnate in his opinion that you ought to step to the right. Each man is determined to carry this con viction with him to the bitter end. The other afternoon these two sen ators were walking up Connecticut avenue. If it had not been for this stroll up the fashionable thoroughfare, the south would not now be all split up the back. They were discussing great problems In perfect harmony. Each had a perfectly good dove of peace perched on his shoulder. They started across the street when they saw an automobile driven by one of the speed maniacs who wear goggles bearing down upon them. They were in the path of the machine. Action prompt and vigorous was necessary, or a couple of eminent statesmen would he scattered ruthless up and down the avenue. “This way senator,” said Senator Smith, taking a firm grip on his col league’s arm. “Not at all, senator,” replied Senator White with much dig nity. placing his hand on Senator Smith's shoulder. “Senator,” said Senator Smith in b grieved tone of voice, “you are going the wrong way.” “Senator,” said Senator White w’ith firmness, “while I may not have yet reached your perfection in questions of government. 1 do know* that the way to get out of the way of an automo bile. is to turn to the right.” “Not at all,” insisted Senator Smith, “(he left is the right way in this in stance.” In the meantime the automobile was still coming. “Senator.” baw’led Senator Smith, “you had better come my way.” Each gave the other a tug, and as something had to be done they broke grips, each going the way of his choice. “The right,” said Senator White hop ping in that direction. “The loft,” Senator Smith flung back over his shoulder has he bounded that way. The car dashed between them like a Kansas tornado, and the two statesmen gazed at each other thoughtfully and carefully avoided the subject. But it leaked out in the Senate, and may be brought to the attention of the President as matter likely to disturb democratic harmony. Either this or the Senate may take up the matter and make legal a series of rules which way to jump in case one is at tacked by an automobile. It is regarded as a pity that Geor gia and Alabama should fall out over such a matter, when they have just recovered from the regional bank thing, but both insist that it is a question of principle. •■••••••••••••••••••■•a FAILURE,® KEITH Anniston Banker Comments on Means of Selecting Bank Directors Anniston, June 13.—(Special.)—In the opinion of James Keith, Jr., vice presi dent of the Anniston City National bank and recently elected vice president of the Alabama Bankers’ association, the con ference plan of nominating directors for the federal reserve banks has proved a failure wherever tried, whether at Mont gomery, in Tennessee, New York or Richmond. Mr. Keith says: "Various conferences have been held the country over in an effort to select di rectors for the various regional banks, one of which is to be established In the city of Atlanta. The conference in Mont gomery proved unsatisfactory, the Ten nessee conference was unsatisfactory, the one held In New York was unsatisfac tory, as was also the Richmond confer ence. "The fact of the business is that all of these conferences are in plain violation of the spirit, if not the letter, of the federal reserve act. creating these regional banks, which distinctly points out that the board of directors of each member bank shall meet In their counting room • and there discuss the question of direc tors for each regional bank, after which they shall name an elector who will cast the vote of that institution in accordance with the findings of the board. "The member banks are divided into groups one, two and three, class A, group No. 1 consisting of the largest banks; group No. 2 of the medium sized banks, and group No. 3 of the banks With a cap ital of $60,000 or less. "These banks also elect in a similar way three directors from commercial, indus trial or agricultural pursuits, the remain ing three directors being named by the President of the United States. "Tt will thus be seen that each member bank votes for two directors, one hanker | and one from some other commercial or j industrial pursuit. "Under these circumstances it would be very difficult, indeed, to arrange for these directors by conference meetings, each state holding an independent meeting. Up to date the conference plan has proved a distinct failure and the whole matter will he settled in a few days now. as the law intended It should, by each elector send ing in a certified copy of the vote given by his hoard of directors. This is emi nently the correct way of doing this, as the conference plan necessarily engenders a great deal of bitterness and strife, all of which is unnecessary."

He aayas Some time ago I had a serious break down bordering on general debility. I could nob sleep, lost all appetite for food, and felt miserable all the time. Our family doctor prescribed, but I got no relief from his medicines. Finally I gave up work and went to the country to regain my lost strength. When there about a week. I saw an advertisement In a Philadelphia paper telling the qual ities of Duffy’s Pure Malt Whiskey, and I decided I would at least give It a fair trial- I purchased a bottle and com menced taking it according to direc tions. After using the first bottle I felt stronger and threw the doctor's medi cines away. I used four bottles In all of your famous medicinal whiskey, and In two months time I felt like a new man and was able to resume my work again.

State Druggists Convene in Annis ton This Week—Postoffice at ' McFall Entered Anniston, June IS.—(Special.)-The fa mous Pearce Kennedy feud case was re called here this week by a return to the city of Dr. J. E. Pearce, principal In the alleged conspiracy which resulted In thw killing of Shelt and Barge Kennedy, fath er and son, near the Calhoun-Etowah border line sometime ago, followed with the conviction of Dr. Pearce, Cross Pearce, his son; W. F. Kennedy, father and grandfather of the dead men; John Eaton and John Fowler, teamsters. Dr. Pearce returned to Flat Top mines Friday night in company with an agent of the convict department. He says con ditions in the mines have been greatly improved since he was first sent up, there not being a single convict wrearlng shackles now so far as he knows. When ever a man receives rough treatment, he says, the man brings It upon him self. Dr. Pearce goes from one mine or camp to the other, and is employed in the discharge of his professional duties as dentist. He says he has treated 15,000 patients and has thus saved the state $16,000. He denies that he has ever left the mines unguarded, as has been charged and says that he has prevented the es cape of two men. He was here in connec tion with a land suit, claiming that an effort is being made to tuke some of his property. The grievance committee of the Cal houn Bar association has not yet held a meeting to investigate the charges that have been laid before it. With one ex ception, that in the case of R. Y. Street, it is said that the charges are largely technical. There were no new developments Satur day in the fight being made by the cit izens of Anniston to prevent a raise in the rates charged here by the Southern Bell. It is believed that the company will withhold the increase in rates until the investigation is made by an account ant to be employed in the city, and in this event the mass meeting of citizens will not be held. In the meantime, the city is proceeding with the work looking to an examination of the company’s books and an investigation of its local invest ments.

The store of W. M. Thweat at Mc Fall, in which the United States postoffice Is also located, was broken into Friday night by breaking in the front door. Mr. Thweat stated Saturday that th» only thing he has misled is a Smith & Wesson revolver, and a strange coinci dence in connection with the robbery is that this same w’eapon was stolen from Mr. Thweat when his store was robbed six or seven years ago.
