»I Williams Says Business Is Increasing;
125,000 People Pass Corner In One Day • .....—— By RALPH R. SILVKR _— -- Williams Says He Can Find - No Business Depression "For the past several months I have heard talk of business depression In Bir mingham,'* said H. D. Williams, a well known real estate man, yesterday, with offices in the Jefferson County Bonk building "But I have been absolutely un able to find any signs of it myself, "My business has grown steadily for the past three months, and for those three months shows also a good increase over the year previous. I have Just closed a SMI on South Twentieth street, between 'Avenues A and B, for a price ct 117,000 Air a lot 20x100 feet. Can you see any thing like bard times in that? "There is some depression in other parts of the state, owing to the cotton situa tion, but Birmingham has not been af fected to any appreciable extent aa yet. Things have been at an absolute stand still at Montgomery, Selma and similar towns. A friend of mine who Is a travel ing salesman, a few days ago came back from an eight-days’ trip through south Alabama and without a single order. The men to whom he sold last year. Instead, were asking for extensions of their time to pay. “But I understand that the cotton situ ation is fast righting itself, and as soon as it does I believe confidently that busi ness will boom. And I believe further that the cotton situation will be cleared up within two or three months. 1 under stand that we consume about 8,000,000 bales in this country, and have been ship ping the rest to Europe to be made into the finished product and sent back to us. Instead of that we will soon be making all of our cotton into finished product and sending our surplus to the fighting armies of Europe. “Other sections of the country where the staple crops are something other than cotton. I understand, are In the midst of prosperous conditibns. They’ve sold their crops, and as soon as we sell this cotton crop we’ll feel the same prosperity. “But conditions here in Birmingham are fine, at least so in my business. I do not believe all of this business depres sion talk is Justifiable. Within two or three months, at the outside, I believe the real estate market and business con ditions in general will be entirely nor mal.” »•••••••••••••••••*«•■•••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• 1 DIRT DEALERS’ j DAILY DOINGS The big red card Is on the job! Through the agency of one of the red placards furnished by the Birming ham Real Estate exchange to its mem bers and offering a reward of $10 to anyone catching a person damaging or stealing from a vacant house, a negro plumbing thief was caught on the Bouthslde last week. The negro was noticed about the place by a disinterested party. The ob server, however, had noticed the red placard tacked on the house by the Yancey Real Restate company, and se curing a club he held the negro thief at bay until a policeman was called and the thief carted off to Jail. The cap turer Incidentally received the first re ward to be paid by the Real Estate ex change under their new system. ■ This move of the Real Estate ex change Is expected to place a complete rheck on the vandalism of small boys throwing rocks through windows of vacant houses and negro thieves who rob vacant houses and stores of plumb ing and similar material.

Pro gre88ive young men in charge D. P. ANDERSON McCleery Shows How Shopping Center of City Was Located By Counting People On the Street The talk of George McClerry, Bir mingham manager of S. H. Kress and company, before the Birmingham Real Estate exchange at the .weekly lunch eon Thursday has caused so much com ment that officials of the excnange feel assured that the series of edu cational talks at the weekly lunch eons, of which that of Mr. McC^leery's was the first, is going to prove a big success. Mr. McCleery’s talk hinged about the text of what should be the duties of a real efctate agent to his tenant and in cidentally how real estate values are dependent upon the location of & city’s business center and what a city's bus! ness center is. Mr. McCleery gave some startling figures in his short address. For in stance, he illustrated how the Kress company determine upon a location for one of their stores. “The value of a site for a store de pends upon its location in reference to the ‘shopping section’ of the city,” he said. “The business section is deter mined, not by men, but by the women, w'ho do the great percentage of a city’s shopping. Men come downtown, go to their offices and only leave them to go to some other man’s office or to the bank. They only go to these places when they have to. "Women, on the other hand, come downtown and visit the stores—the women’s furnishing stores, the depart ment stores, the groceries and so forth. Therefore, where you find those stores you wilt find the business center or shopping section of a city. In locating the business center of tills city for the determination of the site of Kress' new store on Second avenue we sta tioned men with a counting apparatus on the different downtown corners to see how many people passed. "On Norton’s corner at Second ave nue and Twentieth street that man counted 125,000 people passing there in one day during business hours and going but two directions, either up or down Second avenue. That figure de termined the business center of Bir mingham and we located our store ac cordingly. We employ similar means in many ways. For Instance, men with these counting devices counted during the business hours of one day r.0,000 people entering our two stores during the business hours of one day. Now, notice this. Of those 30,000 people 21, 000 entered the Second avenue store and 9000 the Third avenue store. "That deetrmlnes Second avenue as the shopping center of Birmingham at tlie present time. In this connection there is a duty that real estate agents owe a tenant that often Is violated. A man passes another man's store and notices he is doing a good business. He feels he could do better at this stand, goes to the agent and tells him he will pay more rent for the place at the expiration of the tenant's leuse. The tenant is ousted wrongfully. “Agents and owners should be care ful about raising rents merely because the tenant seems to be doing a good business. The man who offers more for the place often.is not able to do a good business at the same stand on account of the nature of his business or for many other reasons. Often the man who is forced to move out draws a shop ping center with him. “I have known towns where we have been forced to move our stores in this way and as a result the entire shopping center of the town was changed. In one place the agent signed up a man who offered him more rent for«our place and we were forced to move. We went Into the next block. Within two years the entire business center of the city had followed our store into that block and the place we had been ousted from actually stood vacant for 12 months.” It is the plan of the real estate ex change to have talks by men like Mr. McCleery from time to time at the weekly luncheons at the Newspaper club, believing that the real estate men will derive much benefit therefrom. getting a pro rata share of the commis sion. “Birmingham real estate is not effected so far as my business is concerned by the reported business depression," states E. J. Burns. "I have closed several big deals in the past two or three months. "By February 1 I expect to see real estate and every other business better than it has been any time since 1907. Inquiries have never been better than right now in the real estate business. By February 1 confidence will be abso lutely restored, and that's all that's wrong now. Real estate has not depreciated in value at all. “The prospects of this country for the exportation of our products is what I base my confidence on.” "Inquiries are much better this week,” states Gus Pope, Jr. “There has been lit tle actual improvement in conditions but better Inquiries always means better busi ness.” The real estate men of Birmingham are inclined to protest against the regional bank charging a higher rate of Interest in the south than in other sections of the country. “I think it is an outrage,” said T. Ij. Anglin of Anglin & White. “The south has been chopping the wood and carrying the water for the past 50 years and it's about time tve are beginning to be treated on an equal basis with other sections of the country. The excuse that there was danger of us borrwing too heavily is ridiculous. They control that. "I am not competent to pass upon the question,’’ said H. D. Williams, "but I have read about the matter In the news papers and it looks like discrimination to me. It lies within the discretionary powers of the regional bank of this sec tion to loan a man money or refuse him, so they would have control over how much the south borrowed without charging from 1 to 1V4 per cent more Interest, so it looks to me.” Many other real estate men expressed indignation over the matter, but stated they were not sufficiently informed to be quoted. Nearly all stated that they were under the impression that the amount of money loaned to the south rested absolutely with the discretion of the officials of the regional bank and therefore could not understand why the excuse for the higher interest was reported as the dan ger of the South overborrowing.

OFFICIAL ACCOUNT OF THE FALL OF TSINGTAU GIVEN OUT BY JAPANESE • Toklo, November 11.— (Correspond ence of the Associated Press.)—The following detailed official account of the storming of the German fortress in Tslngtan was issued today. As al ready cabled the accounts show that the Japanese soldiers brought it to be i known they would play with the same recklessness as seen at the assault on Port Arthur. “On November 6 the weather in Shan Tung was superbly fine in the morn ing, with bright moonlight in the even ing,” the report says. “The besieging army had arranged to occupy the third position near the German fortress on this night, but a detachment of our first line had already occupied the po sition in the course of the day and commenced the preparatory work for the final assault. “At 4 p. m. the commander of the besieging army gave orders to push on the work preparatory to the opening of a sudden charge, and on the com pletiton of the work to wait for fur ther otders before commencing the charge. “The Germans destroyed the Taisich eng batteries in the front of Kiauchau bay with explosives during the day. Moreover, the enemy stopped bombard ment at all other batteries. The be sieging army observed an apparent change in the enemy’s defense lines at this sudden turn of the situation. Destroy Outer Trenches ‘‘The left wing of our second center, which pressed on the central fortress, easily destroyed the first outer trenches and wire entanglements of the central forts without resistance. Soon our troops destroyed the wire entangle ments in front of and Inside the sec ond outer trenches, successfully open ing the way for the assault of the army. “The commander at once Issued or ders to the second central party to storm the enemy’s central fortresses and at the same time ordered all oth er parties to carry out close rccon Money to Lend $1000 for 1 Loan $3000 for 1 Loan Immediately Available $2700 for 1 loan $3000 for 1 Loan $5000 for 1 or 2 Loans.

The enemy in the lines other than at the centr^ fortresses, however, w ere hold- | lng their positions and began a strong resistance with their machine guns. “At 1:30 a. m., November 7, the de tachment of the second center, which wras commissioned to attack the central fortress, carried out the charge on the enemy with two companies of infantry and a section of sappers and dashing on the enemy’s position succeeded In occupying the important part of the fortification and in capturing about 200 Germans. “When the fortification fell Into our hands the enemy's battery, wrhich had remained silent up to this time, sud denly opened fire along all lines and centered their fire on the central fort resses now in our hands. Our detach ment which had Just occupied the for tification last many killed and wound ed in an instant by the enemy’s shell ing. But we undauntedly pushed on de fiant of the enemy’s fire and secured the occupation of the fortress. “The commanding officer of the sec ond central detachment saw the ad vantage of carylng out a sudden at tack on the astern fortresses of the Tattungcheng fort and believed In lta unmistakable success.

HILL & ARNOLD M14 4th Avs. I •. r r.-1' tts* ■ • Salaried Men Refuse to Pay Honest Debts ••One of the worst phases of the present times Is the refusal of sal aried men to pay their honest debts,’* said F. P. Morrison of the Morrison-Allison Heal F*tate com pany. “This thing nlone Is more responsible for depressed business conditions right now In Hlrming ham, I believe, than an> thing else. **I know from my own experience ami from talking to other business men of the city that there are literally hundreds of men in this city who are working on sal aries and are making the same money they made last winter this time, yet they absolutely refuse to pay outstanding debts. They are prompted either from a motive of fear and wish to horde their money for what they believe Is hard times ahead or else they are ineriy taking advantage of the situation to perform a bit of rascality. I suppose the former reasons is most responsible. "Collections are bad and I think every business man will admit it. And tho principal reason lies in tho brain of the salaried man. There are men who are affected by their business so that their Incomes have been greatly cut down. Not so with the salaried man. He is making as much as ever, and yet in reality he is harder to collect from than the man at the head of his own business. “Something should be done. I don’t know what. There Is Uttle recourse, l guess, in law. Yet the money being held by the man of salary is affecting dozens of other men In all lines of business who cannot pay their bills because he does not pay his bills. These times are extra ordinary. of course. We are not in the midst of a boom, but neither are we in the midst of a depression. There is no reason for the action df many of our people, who through fright more than anything else, are largely contributing to the very thing they are dreading. “About the only remedy Is to get them to stop ami think, for they must not real ize the real effect of their actions. “When one man holds up payment on a bill of $50, say for example, he is prob ably tielug up the settlement of $1000 worth of debts; for the man he owes can not pay his debts, the third man cannot pay his debts, thus affecting a fourth man, who cannot pay his, and so on and on in un almost endless chain. “The people of this city and of this country, I believe, haw plenty of money. What we need i« to put it in circulation.’* was undented and securely took pos-1 session of the fortress at 5:10 a. m. “The commanding officer of the sec- ' ond central detachment determined to capture the enemy's fortresses in the rear and with the sanction of the com mander of the whole army ordered de tachments to the Moltke, Bismarck and litis forts. The detachments bravely advanced on the enemy’s forts In forced march in the face of the enemy's fire , who sent showers of bullets and shells. The detachments reached the foot of litas heights at 8:30 a. m. “The detachment forming the right section of the left wing, which ad vanced on the northern fortresses of Hsiaokangshan with the object of breaking up the trenches of the for- ! tiflcatlon on the night of the 6th, aban doned the preparatory work, owing to ; the raeky condition of the soil, and see ing the swift development of the battle in the direction of the central fortresses, suddenly made a charge on the enemy, and took possession of the fort at 5:10 a. m. on the 7th."
