Believed Light Vote Will Be
Cast in Election
Grand Jury Investigates Thrower
Mnrder—Merchants Endeavor to
Keep Cotton From Going
Below Ten Cents
Tuscaloosa. September 19.—(Special.)
1 he election of a city commissioner to
succeed S. H. Sprott, who lias been
president of the board since the in
auguration of the new form of gov
ernment three years ago will be held
Monday. In spite of the fact that there
have been five announced candidates
for several months, it is considered
certain that a light vote will be cast.
In the last democratic primary 1200
votes were cast in tills beat and with
tile other voters who are eligible to
participate In a city election a con
siderably greater number could be
i'Oiled. The estimates, however, place
the vote Monday at not more than 750.
Since a majority is necessary for elec
lion it is probable that a second elec
tion the following week will be neces
sary. The successful candidate takes
' ft'iee the first Monday In October and
will hold for three years. The other
members of the present board are R.
E. Itodes and Hugh Prince. The five
candidates who will go before the
voters Monday are D, L. Foster, D. B.
Robertson, A. J. Roby, O. v. Crabtree
u»u S. W. Friedman.
There will be no sessions of county
court next week in order that the
jurors, court officers and witnesses
might attend the West Alabama fair,
which opens Monday and continues
throughout the week. The grand jury,
which lias been in session for tile past
week, will also recess until Monday
week on account of the fair. The grand
jury hag investigated a number of
cases and has examined many wit
nesses but no true bills huve been
found and no report will be made un
til the adjournment. The principal ease
investigated was that of Tossie King,
charged with murder for the killing of
Police Officer AV. G. Thrower several
weeks ago. King was recently hound
over by the Inferior court to await tile
action of tile grand Jury, ball being
disallowed him.
Added impetus has been given the
luy-a-bale of cotton movement here
by the action of the merchants of Tus
culoosa who have fallen In line and
are taking the lead In the fight to
keep cotton from being placed on the
market at less than 10 cents per
pound. At a meeting last night many
merchants agreed to increase their pur
<bases at this price to five halos and
letters are being sent oul by them to
all the wholesalers and manufacturers
" iIh whom they do business asking
till' purchase of a halo at that figure.
Tile local merchants agree tn hold same
and store it free for those who will
avail themselves of this opportunity
to aid the plan.
A meeting of citizens and members
of the. Hoard of Trade bak been railed
for Monday night to perfect arrange
ments for the buy-a-hale plan here.
Dr. George AV. AVorcester of New
buryport, Mass., has purchased the
Ryan farm, consisting of 367 acres,
from Mrs. AA'. A. Ryan at a price said
to lie $30 per acre. Dr. Worcester will
remove to Tuscaloosa next spring.

Doctor Recommended
I have great faith In your remedy.
My first husband's mother. Mrs. Mary
C. West, had a bad case of kidney trou
ble. She was in bed one year. Three
doetdrs attended her, and after a con
sultation they told her husband she
could not live five hours, as one of her
kidneys was gone. Thbn he called an
old doctor who had previously attended
her. He told her that all he knew to do
was to try AA’arner's Safe Kidney and
Liver Remedy, and if this remedy did
not do her any good, nothing would. So
she started to take Warner’s and in less
than three weeks she was on her feet
again and she was thoroughly cured by
your remedy.”
—Mrs. Georgie Armstrong,
Lynn, Mass.
The experience of thirty
five years has demonstrated
the fact that Warner's
acts specifically upon the
kidney and liver In such n
manner that It establishes
a healthy condition of
these vital organs. It is
sold by all druggists In 50c

Declares Wilson at Proper !
Time Will Name Alabamian ’
to Succeed Shelby
Montgomery. September 19.—(Special.) ?
That President Wilson will at the proper }
time name Judge Richard W. Walker of
Huntsville to be United, States circuit "
judge to succeed the late Judge* David D.
Shelby is the opinion of Judge John Pel
ham, associate justice of the court of
appeals, who has just returned from a
trip to Washington.
Judge Pelham expressed the opinion
that there is little doubt of Judge Wal- 1
ker’s appointment. He declared that he
had teverol talks with Attorney General
Gregory lelatlve to the office, and stated
that, while no assurance was given that
the Alabama jurist will lie named on the
federal bench, there was a very optimis
tic feeling among Judge Walker’s friends
in Washington regarding his chances.
According to Judge Pelham, the prin
cipal opponent of Judge Walker is Uni
ted States Senator Nathan P. Bryan of
Florida, whose appointment has been
urged by a good many of his friends in
Congress. Hqwever, Senator Bryan has
five years longer to serve in the Senate
and it is thought that this fact, together
with his lack of judicial experience, will
militate against his chances.

States Money Plentiful to
Handle Crop
Jackson, Miss., September 19.—(Spo
ils!.)—J. R Stirling, president of the

very optimistic view of the cotton
ituation, believing that the prospect
or peace in Europe Is growing bright
r and that conditions in this country
re adjusting themselves so that he
oes not believe tlie* south is facing
ny great business disaster.
Mr. Stirling says ‘‘we have plenty of
nonoy to handle the cotton crop in this
rrritory and reports from the banks
Vith which we are connected, and our
arlous correspondents are of a sim
lar character. The farmer who wants
loan on his cotton can have no trou
le in getting it. The fact is very few
.timers are asking for loans on cotton,
’bus far an exceedingly small amount
as been loaned by the banks on col
on, which is proof conclusive that the
urniers, generally speaking, are able
o hold their cotton without financial
In this connection it is interesting to
otc that the “buy-a-bale” movement
5 under good headway. More than 50
ales have already been purchased by
itizens of Jackson and others are fa 11 -
.g in line.
The Jackson broker of the Quaker
>ats comJiipy received instructions
rom that company today to buy a bale
or their account at 10 cents per pound
nd stated that similar instructions had
fen given to all their brokers and
alesmen. The company also advised
is agents here that it had placed an
rder for 1.000,000 cottpn bags and
ecks for immediate delivery, having
otermined to change from jute to cot- !
on. Several other big grain dealers
live given notice of similar action as

Response to Unique Cam

Over the County
St. Paul, Minn., September 18.—(Special.)
Telegrams from J. C. Simpson, president
American Association of Fairs and Impo
sitions, asking co-operation in a peace
and plenty movement to preserve peace
In this country and promote peace abroad,
have received enthusiastic response from
ICS fairs and expositions in this country
and two In Canada.
Many will make fireworks display similar
to that at Minnesota State Fair which
depicted the farmer as the soldier of
peace and his implements as machine
guns of prosperity, showed flour barrels
surmounted by sheathes of wheat and the*
motto, ‘‘Flour Barrels Are Better Than
Gun Barrels,” which has been taken up
in many states.
Governors of several states and William
Jennings Bryan, Secretary of State, have
wired commending the plan. Attendance
at the Minnesota State Fair Saturday
broke the record of years, 80,000 being
present when doves of peace were released
by Mrs. Julian Meath, president National
Housewives League, Lincoln Beachcy and
others, in front of motion pictures to be
dnsplaved throughout the country. The
doves bore dollar bills to their home in
the Twin Cities, and thus demonstrated
that, peace brings the money to the house
wife instead of the warrior.
One dove was named Woodrow Wil
son in honor of the President’s serviees
in the cause of peuee and will he for
warded to the President after being ex
hibited at such fairs ns can be arranged
for. The President's dove left St. Paul

cotton and picking Is going on every

that they will not sacrifice their cotton
