nounced to Executive Committee
That Shields Would Accept
Nomination for Governor
The republicans are experiencing great
difficulty in securing a nominee for gov

tired for reasons of business, and Judge
it John B. Shields, who was nominated

as saying in effect that the honor had
been thrust upon him.
The dispatch from Jasper follows:
‘ The report of the republican commit- j
tee meeting in Birmingham Thursday
stating that Judge John B. Shields of
Jasper was nominated for governor of
Alabama in lieu of O. D. Street was
without his knowledge or consent, accord
ing to information received from him to
“Judge Shields stated he had no infor
mation to the effect that he was nomi
nated until one of the men in the office
handed him the morning paper and
called his attention to the article con
cerning the proceedings of the conven
tion. He stated further he did not know
the republican committee meeting was to
have been held yesterday."
In regard to the above. Col. T. H. Al

that the judge had stated that while he
did not seek the nomination, if the com
mittee saw flt to nominate him he would
accept the nomination. There were two
names before the committee for the nomi
nation of governor, and after a free dis
1 cussion the statement made by Chairman
Long secured the nomination for Judge
Shields. Colonel Aldrich was a member of

Should the railroads be permitted to in
crease their rates on coal, the Birming
ham district and the remainder of north
Alabama would be done an irreparable
Injury, in the opinion of T. P. John
son, president of the city commission of
Sylacauga. Mr. Johnson advises the rail
roads to profit from experience and stay
out of politics.
“We are deeply interested in the new
move of the railroads,” said Mr. John
son, while a visitor to Birmingham yes
terday. “We are as deeply interested as
Birmingham is, for we are aware of
the damage which would be done to the
industrial plants of Sylacauga and Talla
dega if the railroads were successful.
“Just at the present time when Euro
pean war is having its effect on American
business, when it is absolutely essential
that we all pull together for the common
good, it seems rather strange that the
railroads should again attempt to increase
their rates. Their action in this regard
is scarcely- patriotic.
"I trust sincerely that the railroad com
mission on September 14 will deny the
railroads the right to boost’ rates. The
railroads should profit by experience and
stay out of politics.”

Local Companies Declare
That When Demand Be
comes Insistent Europe
Will Provide Bottoms
The reports that incessant Inquires from
Sweden, Italy, Switzerland, Norway and
other countries of Europe were being re
ceived in New, York for coal In any quan
tities for steam purposes interested local
men yesterday. It was stated by officials
of the Pratt Consolidated company, which
concern maintains European agencies In
Liverpool and London, that the local jom
pany had no advices from the European
agents lately. Nothing later than 10 days
has been received.
It was stated by K. A. Konville, general
sales manager, that until the lanes are
cleared for transportation between Amer
ica and Europe and until bottoms are
provided for coal, that Alabama could
not hope to participate in the sale of coal
abroad. It was held that the same disad
vantage that keeps Alabama coal away
from South American ports alBo keeps
this country from sending coal to Europe
at this time. Those conditions, accord
ing to Mr. Konville, include the absence
of financial facilities, bottoms and the in
ability of Alabama to compete advanta
geously with Russia and Wales.
Will Provide Bottoms
Mr. Konville said that when the lanes
were cleared for traffic across the seas
and tvhen the countries of Europe warted
coal badly enough they would provide
bottoms for transporting the coal and
they could be loaded at gulf ports.
“We have no requests for quotations
other than received some days ago." said
Mr. Konville. "The same conditions that
keep us out of South America will keep
us out of Europe, unless wo are greatly
mistaken. It is purely a question of
transportation. If we could get a clear
lane for traffic and the necessary ships
we could send the coal to Europe. Until
then even though the manufacturing
plants should shut down, we cannot do
any business with Europe. The time will
come eventually in the war when the
manufacturers of Europe will want our
coal so badly as to send bottoms for It.
Then we can make some sales. Until
then we are not prepared to help out to
any great extent."
It is recalled here that when the coal
miners of Great Britain were out on a
strike the Pratt company sent some coal
to South America to All orders there, but
the payments were made in England to
the agents of the Pratt company and the
bottoms were chartered there, sent to
America and loaded with Alabama coal.
The premiums now being paid to coal
dealers is unusually attractive, end Bir
mingham Is sure to land some fine orders
eventually unless the war ceases as
abruptly as It began.
Inquiries in New York
That European and South American
companies are anxious to acquire Amer
ican coal Is made known in the following
excerpt from the New York Herald:
"Frantic cable messages from practi
cally every country in Centra! and Sr uth
America and from Italy, Sweden, Switz
erland. Norway and Holland are being re
ceived here dully by coal exporters beg
glng for steam coal In any quantity. Most
of the railroads and electric light and
power plants have a sufficient supply of
coal on hand to last them two months, it
was said, but after that there is no hope
of their obtaining enough to meet their
needs unless shipping conditions im
