COXESAYS COLLECTION SIN ALABAMA SHOW GREAT IMPROVEMENT!
- - By ELLIS C. HOLLUMS -— - Coxe Says Collections In Alabama Are Showing Marked Improvement Bristol Wholesaler In Birmingham Says Business Conditions Very Much Improved—Thinks Crop Diversification Movement One of Greatest Things Ever Started—Says Alabama Farmers Should Feed Her People W- H. COXE of Bristol, Tenn., was a visitor to Birming A ham Saturday and was registered at the Morris. Mr. Coxe was optimistic as to general conditions and said that in Alabama, especially, did he expect to see an improvement in business; in fact, an improvement already is to be noticed. Mr. Coxe is president of the Coxe Hat company at Bristol; president of the King Clothing company at Knoxville and is largely interested in several wholesale concerns that send salesmen in this territory from Bristol. He maid fhnf flic collection* with him company in llnlinma were allow ing a marked Improvement and com mended mo*t lienrtilj the crop diver sification movement. Mr. love *i*i«l that thin wh* one *ure method of Mnbll | Ir.lng credit* In the wontli and that it 3 would mean more for the *ta»**.s that | adopted It than any other one thing. "The main trouble with the south,” he said, "and what is really, in a meas ure, responsible for the condition of some months past, is the fact that the people here have been long accus | tomed to long-time credits. The con I Sumer expects it from his merchant and the merchant, in turn, expects it from the .jobber and manufacturer. ) This makes it harder for manufactur ers to sell goods in the south on a ' profitable basis. "However, our collecticfris in Alabama have shown a marked improvement 1 within the past three weeks, and we expect to see an improvement in busi- , ness. ! "The crop diversification movement is j the greatest possible thing that has c yet happened to the south. There is no reason why Alabama should not grow enough grain to put bread in the mouths of its people; this state also should grow cattle in sufficient quan tity to supply its people with meat, i For trucking. Alabama can't be beat by any state in the union, so far as the quality of the land is concerned. Its people must awake to their oppor tunities. And. I am glad to note, that a movement to educate crop diversifi cation is well under way and is ac complishing good. “No matter what it Posts the civic bodies to start and keep going such a movement, it will come back to them tenfold in dividends of untold wealth ) nnd happiness added to the state and its people through their i nst rumen ? tality. "Meat is destined to become a lux ury within the next few years. Xo less an authority than J. Ogden Ar mour has made this statement. Ala bama can grow cattle with more profit than Texas. In Texas it Is necessary i to feed cattle five months in the year because of the lack of rain in most sections of the state. In Alabama it » „ is only necessary to feed a herd dur jffr ing January and February. Grass is THE GEO. F. WHEELOCK CO. ROOFING AND SHEET METAL ( WORK i Manufacturer* of Hollow Metal Win dow*.

The feeding of cattle eats up much of the profit lit raising tnem. Aialnme has a great advan tage o\ er Texas In this regard, and its people shculd not be slow to grasp the opportunity that is within their reach “Business in my section of the coun try is beginning to assume a more roseate hue, and conditions very near ly normal soon will obtain, I believe. Our sales rorcc will be augmented this spring and summer and we intend to go out and get business. The business is here to get. the credit of Alabama merchants will be unimpaired by vir tue of the crop diversification move ment, and we are going to make things hum in our line of the game.” Mr. Coxe is a former traveling sales man, and is well known in the territory. He is genial and creates a pleasant im pression wherever he goes. He is not given to "spouting off" and his remarks anent business can be taken at their face value. If you think business is bad, don’t include Mr. Coxe’s companies in your general condemnation of affairs. PEACE TALK $ NDS Close of Week Showed Net Gain of About 40 Points New Orleans, March 7.—Peace talk played an important part in the co« ton market last week, sending prices | up when the market appeared to be under bearish control and about to go in to a marked decline under the in fluence of the stand the European al lies made toward Imports by Germany and the almost prohibitive insurance rates. On Tuesday prices were 4 to 11 points under last week’s close but a c;uick recovery from this level was made, the high levels being made on the last session of the week. The close was at a net gain of 40 to 42 points. Exports for the week were large, de spite the restrictions on shipping and amounted to 354,615 bales which com pared with 687,000 bales for the entire month of March last year. The effect of these figures was intensified by re ports of a large spot short Interest In Texas. Preparations for planting were watched with great interest. This week the situation abroad is bound to play a prominent part In the cotton market. Toward the end of last week it was rumored that the allies were about to give up their detei initiation to regard cotton as contra band of war. Any such official an nouncement would, of course, be fol lowed by a stronger market as it. would point to an uninterrupted export move ment. So far as can be seen now, how ever, high insurance rates are. go ng to be a factor to be reckoned with. The new crop is beginning to loom up as a strong influence because of I the signs of a material cut In acre I cge. Any evidence that comes to light to confirm these signs will have a strengthening effeot on the market, ! particularly on the fall months, al though bears are pointing out that Ihe fall months already are at a con siderable premium over the tsummet months, whereas they usually stand at a discount. Perfection Far Off From the Washington Star. “So you went on record for prohibi tion?” “Yes." replied the man with the an cient silk hat. “I’m ready to vote for It.

E From 18th to 17th v_• ACTIVITY SHOWN IN The Railroads Are Plaeing Orders With Steel Companies New York, March 7.—Increased ac tivity in structural work marked the steel trade last week. Contracts closed called for nearly 43,000 tons of fab ricated steel, including 13,000 tons for the New York city elevated railroad extension, 9000 tons for the Columbia river highway bridge and 9500 ton-^ for the Clark street viaduct at Cleve land, O. The railroads bought about Go.000 tons more rails, including 20,000 tons for the Northern Pacific, 20,000 tons for the Illinois Central—the latter so be rolled in Canada—6000 tons for the Burlington, 10,000 tons more for the New York Central system, 250 ) tons additional for the Great Northern, 2000 tons more for the Pennsylvania, 1500 tons for the International Great North ern and 3000 tons light sections for Russia. Specifications against contracts were larger and as a result the United States Steel corporation increased the output of ingots to nearly 69 per cent ct to tal capacity. Orders booked by the sub sidiary companies in February were larger than previously' reported and in consequence it is Indicated that un filled orders increased about 200,00a tons last month. The American Steel and Wire com pany advanced extras on galvanized wire products $B per ton. Although bars, plates, shapes and bands were advanced $1 per ton to $1.15, base Pittsburg. March l, prices on plates and shapes are not being maintained. The export trade continued satisfac tory: some large and many small or ders were placed. ANNISTON Anniston, March 7.—(Special)—Governor Henderson appointed Tillman Turner of Oxford, late Saturday afternoon, to the presidency of the commissioners’ court of Calhoun county, to succeed the late W. F. Hanna. Mr. Turner was notified of his appointment by a telegram from Secretary W. R. Henderson, wiio con gratulated him on getting the place. Several prominent Calhoun county men wore candidates for the position and it has been conceded for several days that the race was between Mr. Turner and Wood Hanna, both of whom have strong pc' Ucal friends who were looking after their Interests. Air. Turner was backed by J. J. and R. D. Willett and M. B. Wellborn, and Mr. Hanna had the sup port of State Senator Charles D. Kline and other influential citizens. President Lamar Jeffers of the Annis ton club of the Georgia-Alabama league, has received a wire from Manager John Ganzel of the Rochester Hustlers, saying that the Rochester club will have to train at home this year fur economical reas ons and will not come south as in the past to train Father J. T. Coen, rector of the Church of the Sacred Heart, has been transferred to Bayou La Batre, in Alobile county, where he will become pastor of St. Mar garet’s Catholic church. Father Coen will be succeeded here by Father T. J. Karley. who is now rector of St. Vin cent’s church at Mobile. Father Earley will arrive next Sunday. George Cater of the Cater-Kilby Hard ware company, has been awarded the prize by those who judged the contest at the Anniston Athletic club on last Fri day evening to determine who was the best informed citizen on the history of Anniston among the older residents. L. G. Jones was awarded the booby prize. Capt. A. W. Bell, a retired capitalist I of this city, who has been spending sev eral weeks at Safety Harbor, Tampa and Clearwater, Fla., has returned home. Ho stated that linancial and industrial con ditions are much better in Alabama than in Florida. EXPORTS OF HAY ARE ADDING MATERIALLY TO TRADJJALANCE Italy Is Largest Purchaser and This Causes Much In terested Speculation SOME MAY BE SOLD TO AUSTRO-GERM AN S Opening of Dardanelles Will Release No Less Than Half Million Dollars Worth of Food stuff Now Stored By HOI,!, AND New' York, March 7.—(Special.)—In years when our foreign trade was normal the statisticians and experts w'ere fond of estimating the money value of our cot ton harvest and then comparing the fig ures with their estimates of the money value of the hay harvested ir\ the same year It frequently happened that the difference was only a few thousand dol lars in an aggregate of $5,000,000 or $6,000, 000. Sometimes hay was found to have brought a larger money return than cot ton. Sometimes it was the other way. But It was commonly said that the money value of the hay crop of the United States and that of the cotton crop in any given year, or at least in recent years, was approximately the same. The unfortunate complications occas ioned by the European war which for a time prevented the export of cotton from the United States did not arise to Inter fere with the sale and delivery of hay to belligerent and neutral nations. There fore, It will probably be found by the end of the present fiscal year that the money received by American farmers for hay is larger In amount than money received by the cotton planters. The ex port of hay both from the United States and Canada has passed almost unnoticed. Public Interest was centered in the ex ports of wheat and other food products. It was forgotten that France and Eng land were buying many thousand horses in the United States, and were also util izing all the horses that could be spared from the industries of France and Great Britain. Horses and cattle must be fed. There have been recent intimations from Germany that forage for domestic pur poses, not for the army, should be ad mitted into Germany. Yesterday there was placed upon ves sels at the port of New York for ship ment, principally to titalv and in lesBer amounts to France and England, a great quantity of compressed hay. The ship ment entailed the entire capacities of three steamers. This is only one of many shipments, and there is to be continuous export of hay until the war closes. Italy at the present time is purchasing hay even In larger amounts than are England and France. So far as England Is concerned, this may be due to the fact that Canada is exporting hay in enormous quantities to England. In w’ell informed commercial circles in this city the report, well authenticated, has pre vailed for some days that one Canadian firm alone is under contract to ship as soon as possible 40,000 tons of hay to Eng land. If one firm enters Into a contract of this kind the inference is strong that others must be engaged In the shipment of hay from Canada to England. The hay shipped to Canada will cost, includ ing freight and Insurance charges, about $30 a ton. a Large contract One New York firm whose occupation is dealing in produce, entered into con tract some weeks ago to furnish a con stant supply of hay sufficient to feed 200, 000 horses. The contract makes It neces sary to ship as frequently as possible. Modern processes in baling hay into great compressed bales facilitates the movement of hay in large quantities. For this hay payments are promptly made. Yesterday morning a draft for approxi mately $50,000 was paid by the represen tatives of one of the nations which are buying bay in the TTnited States, and this is only orfe of the many payments. American hay costs here about $24 a ton. The cost to the importers will average about $30 a ton, and as the tonnage may amount to 1,000,000, some idea can be ob tained of the money value of these ex ports provided the war be continued throughout this calendar year. Twice before has the United States fur nished large amounts of hay to belligerent nations. England contracted at the time of the Boer \v*tr for many thousand tons of hay. At that time, the American com mission merchants found it expedient to ship, for the most part, Canadian bay. That was because of tariff exactions at that time. They bought thousands and thousands of tons of Canadian hay, shinned it from Canada to New York or Boston in bond and then reshipped it to South Africa. So also at the time of the war between Japan and Russian, Japan placed heavy orders in the United States for hay, and as Japan had estab lished in New York a credit of many mil lions these purchases were paid for on the spot. The extraordinary demand which comes from Italy for hay leads to a good deal of guessing as to the ultimate destina tion of the commodity. Of caiirse, it makes no difference to the commission mer chants where the hay goes. They are paid promptly and they are well Insured. But natuiall ythere is much conjecture respecting Italy’s purpose in making these purchases. Some are inclined to United Commercial Travelers' Semi-Monthly Meeting; Officers | Are Elected For the Ensuing Year DID the boys of the U. C. T.'s have a good time at their semi-monthly meeting Saturday night? Say, did | it rain Saturday night? That was one of the most enthusiastic meetings ever held by Birmingham coun-j ell. No. 172, United Commercial Travelers of America. It was the occasion of the, annual election of officers and the fol lowing were chosen: J. P. Oliver, senior councillor. R. K. Kennedy, junior councillor. A. J. Davis, secretary. T. B. Marshall, conductor. Iv. A. Callen, page. W. F. Bridges, sentinel. The executive committee is composed of Thomas R. Epperson and A. W. Beck, who will serve two years each, and O. D. Andrews and C. E. Abram, who will serve one year each. J. P. Oliver and B. F. Wilkerson were chose to act as representatives of the local council at the annual meeting of the grand council at Anniston in May, with S. A. Mitchell and R. K. Kennedy as alternates. Following the election of officers sev eral applications for membership were acted upon, and the candidates initiated into the mysteries of the order. Much fun .and jolity prevailed during the in itiatory exercises. Alter the applicants for membership had “got aeir vish” and were members of the organization, a “Dutch’* lunch was served, during which several short talks were made, to the general effect that the outlook for the year was exceptionally bright for the U. C. T.'s. The newly .elected offeers of the body made short addresses, thanking the members for the honors conferred upon them. It was late when the last joke had been told and the “boys" left the hall. The meeting was voted one of the best held, and the members are looking forward to the next meeting with interest. Now, just a word about that meeting of the grand council, which will be held at Anniston In May. This meeting is held every year at some good Alabama city and the U. C. T.’s gather in large numbers from all parts of the state to d’scuss matters affecting the traveling man and his Interests. Legislation affect ing travelers is taken up and whatever is deemed necessary in regard to it is done. Tho grand council has a two-fold pur pose 1. It is to discuss matters affecting the traveling man and to remedy such troubles as might be brought to its atten tion. 2. It is to afford the members of the U. C. T. an opportunity to meet their friends and to spend a short vacation full of good times. T.ast year the meeting was held in Selma, and it was stated at Saturday night’s meeting that Anniston would have to go seme” if she offered a better en tertainment than did the residents of Selma. However, an Annistonian, who was present last night, said that Annis ton not only would “go some,” but that she would show the U. C. T.’s a better time than they ever had enjoyed at any grand council meeting. Anniston has got her back up. She lias no idea of letting a south Alabama town, down in the cotton belt., put any thing over on the coming city of north Alabama. Anniston Intends to make Bir mingham sit up and get some pointers on entertaining a bunch of traveling sales men. And, believe me, Mr. U. C. T.» when any town shows Birmingham some thing on entertaining a convention, you can lay all your blue chips on a bet that It’ll be “some” entertainment. Better attend that meeting. think that they show the magnitude ot Italy's war preparations. Tills inference is in part justified by the fact that Italy has bought many horses ill the United States. There is. however, a strong sus picion that some part of this American hay will be eaten by horses in Austria and in Germany. These exports tend to show how varied and far-reaching are many of the con tracts which have been made by belliger ent and neutral nations with manufac turers and with commission houses In the United States. The Harvests of Next Summer If climate proves favorable, the Amer ican grain harvest, especially of wheat, of next summer and early fall should be the largest ever garnered. One of the bits of information which have come to the financial district from the wheat belts of the west is constantly referred to with expressions of gratification. The report is generally credited as accurate that the farmers have now winter wheat upon 4. UOO.OOO acres more than were ever before devoted to that kind of crop. So also re ports conn that the weather on the whole has been especially favorable for winter wheat. If the climate is benign through out the late spring and early summer the harvest of winter wheat should exceed the phenomenal harvest of last summer, and the quality should be as good as that of the winter wheat of last year. An addi tion of 4,000.000 bushels, basing the esti mate upon the average production for re cent years, to the wheat supply, that is to say, 60.000,000 bushels in excess of the best record heretofore made. With wreather conditions all that is hoped for, there should he a correspondingly large increase in the acreage devoted to spring wheat. A statement made by an excellent au thority who 1ms recently spent some months in Russia and who is familiar with conditions in that empire may, if it bo accurate, somewhat effect the export of wheat next fall. This authority states that if the Dardanelles be opened to Rus sian vessels there will flow into Europe an amount of grain simply stupendous. He estimates that food products are now awaiting export from southern Russia of the money value of considerably in excess of $660,000,000. Our own grain mar ket must have had some intimation of tills, for in no other way can the recent decline for the quotations of wheat be explained. * EUFAULA Eufaula, March 7.—(Special.)—The city council of Eufaula has just passed an or dinance embodying all the features of the stringent new Alabama prohibition laws. In fact, the new statute was copied verbatim in the construction the local ordinance which will cover the prohibi tion in the city and within its police jurisdiction also. The city aims in this way to try all blind tiger cases in the recorder’s court, and thereby reap any fines that may be assessed as well as putting the matter of the enforcement of the law more completely within the city’s control. Funeral services were-held yesterday afternoon at Baker Hill for the late Rev. A. L. Ray, who died at the residence of his daughter, Mrs. J. T. Searcy, at Clayton. Mr. Ray was a well-known Baptist minister and had served numercfiji churches in this section. He leaves a widow and the following children: Mrs. Searcy, Clayton; Mrs. C. A. Lee,""White Pond; Mrs. Sue Norton, Abbeville; Mrs. J. M. Lee, WHiite Pond; Mrs. W. Miller, Webb; Miss Willie Ray, Baker Hill, and Frank Ray, superintendent of the High school at Blocton. Funeral services were held here yester day for Kirs. Robert Humphrey, who died several days ago at Tuscaloosa, foliowt ing a long illness. She is survived by four sene and three daughters. After an illness of two years, John D. AVI!Mams died from the effects of a stroke of paralysis at his home near Clayton. He was 57 years of age and is survived by a widow and nine children. He was justice of the peace of Beat 10 for a num ber of years, and was one of the best known men in the community. Funeral services, conducted by George Zorn, were held at the Pond Bethel church, followed by burial in the church yard. SPY DETECTED BY A WELLKNOWN WRITER Suspicions Aroused When “Englishman” Wouldn’t Talk English Paris. March 6.—(Special.)— Madame Ma* rle-Anne de Bovet, in time of peace a well-known authoress, and Marquise d# Rois-Herbert, now acting as nurse in a hospital not so many leagues from Paris, very cleverly spotted a spy some days ago. A man in a British officer’s uni form. driving a big motor car flying the British flag .asked Madame de Bovet for certain information, which did not appear to have any very definite connection with the Red Cross work in which he pro fessed to be engaged. The soi-distant officer spoke excellent French, but Mad ame de Bovet, who knows our language well, found it quite impossible to get a word of English out of him. This strange disinclination to speak what was presum abl5r his own language increased Mad ame de Bovet's suspicions. Not only did she refuse to give him the information asked for, but she discreetly warned the authorities to keep an eye on her sus pect. A few days later she learned, to her very legitimate satisfaction, that her man had l>een arrested in quite a dif ferent and distant district on certain very grave suspicions. Usually From the L*ouisville Herald. He: “So you will marry no man unless ho is a hero?" She: “Yes—and most heroes die, you know." NUSSBAUM INKS BUSINESS IS GOOD Chicago Salesman Drifts Into Town and Talks Optimistically Myron Nussbaum of Chicago, who trav els for the Chicago Supply company, drifted into Birmingham Saturday morn ing chock fun of optimism, automobile accessary talk and happiness. Mr. Nuss baum said he had encountered all sort* of good sentiment, and said that he be lieved business was on the upgrade very ^ decidedly. Collections, he said, are improving right along, and it was has opinion that the south was in fairly good condition, every thing considered, and that business here soon would be along toward normal again in tile immediate future. "Business is the best ever." declared "Nutrbaum,” as a friend railed him. shape, and all the talk I hear Is trending shape, and al the talk I hear is trending upward.
