Received Nomination With out Having Made Prom ise As to Patronage CAPT. R. F. KOLB PROBABLE APPOINTEE Kennedy, According to Concensus of Opinion, Will Be Made President of Railroad Commission.—Hen j derson Planning Programme By L. S.vBFTTY Montgomery, June 24.—(Special.)— Charles Henderson, governon-elect. maintains a sphinx-like silence as to any and all appointments which he may make when he assumes the office of Chief executive of the state of Ala bama. If he has made up;his mind on a single appointment, it is certainly known to no other than himself, not withstanding the efforts of his friends to share his confidence, and regardless of the ardent desires of those who would receive patronage underbills ad ministration. The governor-elect has made! It evi dent since his nomination that! he is not at present concerned with whom lie may or may not appoint to office. On the other hand, he has made it just as plain that he considers that he has fin abundance of time for the consider ation of such questions—time which may better utilized in the contempla tion of wise governmental policies and In devising methods of putting those policies into effect. With his mind made up as to his administrative pro- , gramme, Mr. Henderson will then pro bably turn his thoughts to the consid eration of men qualified to, assist him in carrying out that programme. Hence, the governor-elect carries with him a padlocked mouth, and no one has been heard to criticise him for his silence. It is well known that he received the nomination for governor without having made a single promise ' as to patronage under hiH administra- ■ tion, though there can be little doubt that he long ago decided to remember i certain of his friends when he climbed < into the executive’s chair. Capt. Kolb Probably Appointee , It is commonly reported and believed ] that Capt.. Reuben Kolb will be one of j the first men in Alabama to be tendered an office by Mr. Henderson. Captain Kolb, upon his defeat in the first pri mary, immediately embraced the cause of Mr. Henderson, and it was through his efforts and the work of his friends that the Troy candidate secured the nomination. For tins service Captain Kolb will probably be rewarded with an Office in the next administration, and there is much ground for the belief that he will be made president of the state 1 board of convict inspectors. « So far as can be learned, Mr. Hender- < son has not yet decided upon any other appointment, nor is it known definitely that he has really determined upon the patronage in the convict department. However, Captain Kolb is believed to be tiie man whom Mr. Henderson will name to that office, and color is lent to - that supposition by the fact that he has j already received hundreds of indorse ments for the place from prominent men ( from all parts of the state. There Is another man whom Mr. Hen- t derson is certain to remember when he < becomes governor, and he is Sam P. ( Kennedy, 'who so successfully managed the campaign of the governor^elect. No speculation has been heard as to the -manner !n which Mr. Kennedy will he pc-wardded because it is not a matter I of speculation—it is a matter of knowl- < edge, to practically every well informed ] man in Alabama. Mr. Kennedy, ac cording to the consensus of opinion, will be made president of the railroad com- 1 mission, and the office will not fall into abler or more competent hands.

Irene Rescued by Ensley Minister While in swimming at Bandy's Mill yesterday afternoon, Vera Mitchum, the 13-year-old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Walter Mitchum residing at Wilkes station on the North Bessemer car line, was drowned and three other persons came near losing'their lives In an ef fort to save her. The accident happened yesterday aft ernoon, about 3:30 o'clock, when the little girl and her two sisters, Irene, aged 16, and Margaret, aged 10, went to Bandy’s Mill to go swimming. On account of a picnic of the Easley High land Presbyterian church at the mill, lhey decided to go a little farther down the creek for their swim. They had not been in the water very long before a whirlpool caught Vera and carried her under. Irene, seeing that her sister was drowning, went to lielp her, but was caught in the same Diace and was also carried under. An Did negro man, whose name was not earned, happened to be passing by and lumped into the water and tried to ’ave the two girls, bu.t the current was :oo swift for him, and he also was car ded under. In the meantime little Margaret Mit ’lium, who had been wading near the banks of the creek, seeing both of her sisters drowning began screaming and ran up to where the picnickers were and told them of the accident. Several men ran to the place, the Kev. L*. E. Brubaker being the first to reach the scene. He jujnped into the water and found 'the body of Irene, who was un conscious, and brought her to shore. A party composed of Rush Hickman, Bert Simpson, Rev. Brubaker, R. \\\ Russell and several others rescued the negro. Artificial respiration was resorted to and after a half hour’s work both were restored to consciousness. Irene began screaming for her sister, and told the party that she had drowned. Further search was made, and the body was found. They worked with the little girl for over an hour, but could notJ>ring her back to life. They carried the body t<> the Mitchum home and gently broke i the news to her mother, who fainted when she heard it, and medical atten tion was required. The father was at work at the Bessemer Soil Pipe com pany at the time of the accident, and when notified of the death of his daughter he was stunned.

In the enrollment this year 64 of Ala bama’s 67 counties are represented. The only three that have failed to send stu dents are Cherokee, Conecuh and Frank lin. The four leading counties with the number of students from each are, Tus caloosa 86, Jefferson 29, Talladega 24, Ran i dolph 21. For fifth place Marengo and Montgomery are tied with 18 each. In addition to Alabama, seven other states are represented in the enrollment. Georgia has sent live students, Florida four, Tennessee and Michigan two each and Mississippi. Louisiana and Kentucky one each. One student hails from Ger many. Discussing the present session of the i summer school, Prof. James J. Doster. director, says: The continued growth of the summer school is highly gratifying to all friends of the university and to others interested In the cause of education in Alabama. In 1911, the total attendance was 243. In 1912 the attendance of the previous year was more than doubled, 517 having ma- ! triculated. The attendance in 1913 reached 562. This year 614 have already enrolled. ••This phenomenal increase in numbers is due to the broad policy inaugurated by the university three years ago of throwing open to the teachers of Ala bama its splendidly equipped plant for a period of six weeks during the summer ! months. To meet the growing needs of tills large body of teachers and of others . who desire to take advantage of the op- i •portunities offered for summer study, , the course of study has been greatly enlarged and enriched.

The other 20 defendants, including the leaders, must begin serving their sentences tomorrow in Leavenworth penitentiary. Clemency for John H. Barry and Paul J. . Morris, both of St. Louis, was withheld while they have opportunity to separate petitions. Hannon had been sentenced to three years; Painter to two; Mooney and > Shupee each got one year and one day. Barry got four years and Morris three. Those whose applications for clemen cy finally were denied and the terms they must served are as follows: Frank M.

Hanes Tomorrow morning at 10 o’clock there will be a special service for women at the revival service being conducted at the Norwood Methodist church by the Rev. J. O. Hanes. At the 8 o’clock p. m. ser vice he will speak to young people. The attendance at the revival is sur prising in view of the intense heat, say officials of the church, and the hot weather has apparently had no effect on the congregations. The electric fans are doing yeomen service and those attend ing are said to be finding the innovation very pleasing. Last night Mr. Hanes preached on “Spiritual and Temporal Investment.” “Angels fell from paradise,” he said, “and there was no redemption, but when man fell the Lord sent His only son to endure poverty, misunderstanding, Geth semane and Calvary that He might lift man from his position.” The services will continue throughout the week at 10 o’clock In the morning and 8 o’clock at night. Sunday afternoon there will, be an old fashioned “love feast.’” Cotton BlossomH Fromv Weldon The Age-Herald yesterday received two cotton blossoms from J. A.

MANDY Yesterday afternoon while Jimmy Haw kins. the well known coal dealer and politician, was discussing the state of the weather, or "cussing" it, would prob ably be nearer the mark, with Woolsey Morrow, the genial chief clerk of the probate court, when a middle-aged negro, with a somewhat woebegone look on his ebony countenance approached and said: " ’Scuse me, boss, but could yo’ tell ! me whar Ah can git er peice uf a war rant?” "Piece of a warrant?" asked Jimmy, "that's a new one on me. Wouldn’t a whole warrant do?" "Yassah, dat’s what ah wants." "What is the trouble?’’ "Hits disawav, boss, dat ole 'oman uf mine ain't nevah gin me er mlnit peace since ah moved ter Averyts-town. She fusses and quar’als all de time an' last night she lammed me on de hald wif er stick of stove wood, ’sides—” "Its a peace warrant you want, uncle," interrupted Jimmy: "take the elevator and state your troubles to Judge Ab, who can doubtless diagnose your case in less time than it takes to tell, and. un cle. if Judge Ab issues the warrant to make your wife keep the peace come back here and let me know." "What do you want that information for?" asked Woolsey, as the Ethiopian ambled away, "Well, as the coal business these days is duller than the end of a bull dog’s nose, I was thinking if we could form a syndicate to issue peace warrants we could do a land office business. Why, I know men in this town who. if they could get a warrant that would keep their wives quiet, would pay almost any thing for it." Jimmie explained the scheme in detail to Woolsey. who said he did not think well of it, but as Woolsey has only been married a few months, he called" Asbury Thompson, who was passing, and unfolded the proposition to him. Asbury listened patiently «as Jimmy un folded the proposition, then suggested that peace warrants could hardly be issued against a man’s wife. He said the old negro’s complaint reminded him of an in cident that happened while he was chief deputy sheriff. A negro man came to his office one day and made complaint against his wife. "What, seems to be the matter?” asked the chief deputy. "Why, cap’n. dat ’oman keeps on axin’ me fur money all de time. She ain’t gin me a minlt quiet sin’c we is bin married.
