The Southern Railway' company co operating with many' Boards of Trade, newspapers and other institutions, has called the attention of the interstate com merce commission to the Injustice of the plan, and a final hearing will be held April 7 before the entire commerce com irission for adjustment. The Pennsylvania company, at this time, will not honor mileage for through tickets to points south of Washington. In New York the company will sell a ticket to Washington and check baggage to Wash ington, but at that point a passenger Is required to get off the train and re check the baggage and secure another ticket from Washington to Birmingham or Atlanta as the case may be. This plan has caused extreme discom fort to passengers bound for points south of Washington, many of whom are Bir mingham citizens. The Southern Railw'ay' company, connecting with the Pennsyl vania in Washington, does not look with favor upon the plan. The company, how ever, will be forced to ad<f(k the same rule for passengers bound for points east of Washington from points south unless the rule of the Pennsyivania is abrogated. Samuel H. Hardwick, passenger traffic manager for the Southern railway, has issued the following explanation of the situation: “Concerning the ‘split-ticket* contro versy, the refuge which the trunk lines are endeavoring to take with reference 1<» certain opinions delivered by the in terstate commerce commission in cer tain cases, as referred to in the com munications in the Constitution, will not he found by’ them to be substantially protective. “The situation is that each of these opinions quoted by the trunk lines were ♦•nses of certain peculiarities on account of which peculiarities surrounding those individual cases, the commission rendered c ertain opinions, but quite naturally these opinions are not quoted by* the trunk lines in their entirety, but only’ such parts of opinions as the trunk lines elected and selected in their own C#>inion to cover their case. “Furthermore, these opinions thus quot ed by the trunk lines and which appeared in the Constitution of the 4th Instant, were all rendered in the month of June, (Continued on Page Seven) Aunt Sally's Advice to Beauty-Seekers W.

Is there anything that will really’ take off these horrid spots?’* Have you tried the treatment recommended to Minnie L.? I’ve known thlB to remove very obstinate freckles.

CLIMAX OF WEEK _ W inners in \ arious Contests of Week Will Be Pub lished Tomorrow REBATE BUREAU IS VERY BUSY PLACE Yesterday Devoted Chiefly to Taking Moving Pictures of Misses Fash ion and Various Streets and Stores Th* climax of Fashion Week will be reached today, it is generally believed, if the favorable weather continues. Owing to the ideal weather yesterday, it was announced a-s the best day of the event so far.

The film will be shown in Birmingham as soon a-s developed, after which it will be shown in different narts of the country. Largest Crowds Yesterday • The crowds on the downtown streets yesterday without doubt were the largest of the wreek. It seems there has been a steady gain in the size of the crowds and the interest in Fashion Week, and the volume of business since the first day of the week Each succeeding day has out stripped the predecessor and on this scale, together with the fact that Saturday al ways is the best shopping day of the week anyhow', today is expected to break all records Rebate Office Busy The out-of-town shoppers are now be ginning to come into the rebate office from all parts of the country, several appearing yesterday from adjoining states to Alabama. Secretary Sam Fowlkes states that he really expects a larger re bate business next wreek through the mails than this week, as the majority of the out-of-town shoppers are in the habit of sending their rebate books back to the office by mail. In spite of the indications of bad weather for the annual spring fashion show, Jt appears that the w'hole week will go on the records as one of the most favorable possible. The officials of the Business Men’s league and the merchants are delighted. BLOCK SIGNALS TO ELEVENTH STREET A. G.

Black filed a bill of in formation before Judge W. E. Fort yes terday afternoon und asked the court to order a -rule nisi to issue against Wil liam It. Hall, Mrs. William It. Hall and Robert Sullivan, citing them to appear before the court and show cause why they should not be punished for contempt. In his bill of information Solicitor Black recites the fact that William R. Hall has been indicted for murder in the first de gree, and that his case was set for trial this week; that Mrs. Johnnie Cameron was subpoenaed to appear in the criminal court and testify in behalf of the state in the said cause. He alleges that between Marcli 8 and 12 the defendants named above induced Mrs. Cameron to leave the city; that Robert Sullivan purchased a ticket for Clanton for the suid witness, and that Mrs. William R. Hall went with her 10 Clanton and left her with Mrs. Hall’s mother, and informed the witness to re main there and not return to Birming ham; he further alleges that the witness did return from Clanton to Birmingham, and was told that her expenses would be paid if she would leave and go to At!anta; all of vyhlch the solicitor con tends is calculated to obstruct the admin istration of Justice, and moved that the defendants be cited for contempt. Judge Fort set the hearing of the con tempt proceedings for 9:30 o’clock on Mon day morning, March 1C, in tne second di vision of the criminal 'Court, and cited the defendants to appear at that time and show cause why the>* should not be punish*l for contempt of court, ac cording to the allegations of Solicitor Black.

Judge Fort stated he would give them an oppor tunity to be heard on Monday, but that he would use all the powers of the court for the protection of witnos.«?gH summoned to testify either for the state or against it. The case against William R. Hall, charged with piurder, was passed until April 22, the next capital week of the criminal court.

ID JITNEYS HIT NEGROES WITHIN AN HOUR’S TIME Bov Killed on Twentieth Street and Avenue C During: Afternoon AGED NEGRO STRUCK ON FIRST AVENUE D. H. Bailey Is l*ut Under Arrest. But on Statement of Witnesses Is Allowed to Continue Running Car • Two automobile accidents, one of which proved fatal, occurred in the downtown section of the city yesterday afternoon within an hour of each other, both result ing from negro pedestrians bring run down by jitney cars. The first accident occurred about 2:30 at First avenue and Nineteenth street, when a car driven by A. J. Hardy, whose residence is 2109 Avenue H, struck an aged negro named Warren Carter. Cartel was Immediately removed to the Hillman hospital, but his injuries proved slight, and an early recovery is expected by hospital attendants. No arrest was made. Officer Hay. who handled the rase, gave It as his opinion that the injured man was somewhat irresponsible at tne trim? ot’ the accident. The second accident occurred shortly alter 3 o'clock at the corner of Avenue C and Twentieth street, when .Tamos Pow ers, a negro boy about 11 years old, was run down and fatally injured by a five passenger motor car, driven by D. II. Bailey. At the time of the accident there wore two passengers in the car, one btlng a lady and the other TV. A. Watts, whose residence is 2816 Twelfth avenue, north. According to Mr. Watts the car was HOlng south at moderate speed, when the boy who was playing with several other children ran unexpectedly from the side walk In front of the car. The car passed over the body, fracturing the skull ami inflicting internal injuries. Mr. Watts said: "ihe car was immedi ately brought to n halt, discharging the lady passenger. The driver then placing the wounded boy in the car took him to the Hillniun hospital, l accompanied Air. Bailey on his trip to the hospital where the boy died within a few minutes. "Hailey then proceeded to police head quarters where he gave himself over to the authorities. I was in a position to observe closely all the circumstances of the accident, and in my opinion the con duct of the driver was all that could be desired. I suppose the car whs going between 10 and 12 miles un hour at the time of the accident, and was near the sidewalk, and when the boy ran care hesly from the sidewalk immediately be fore* the car T believe it would have been impossible to have made a stop before striking him.” Bailey was placed under a $ri0ft bond at police headquarters and sumrftoned to ap pear at the coroner's inquest, which Will be held Tuesday morning at 9:3ft. Upon the approval of Coroner Spain, who made a preliminary examination of the cir cumstances of the accident, Chief Egan stated that he would permit the jitney driver to continue to operate his car un til further notice. SHOWER BATHS ARE TOO MUCH FOR HIM The .singular narrative of the loss of mind of a negro juror in the Uni ted States court at Pensacola from the effects of a shower hath was related here yesterday by A. W. Brazelton. the Birmingham court reported, who was reporting the case on which the negro was sitting. The case was the one involving the stealing from a prominent bank in Pensacola of quite a sum of money resulting later in the arrest of a young clerk of the institution. The case was started in the federal court with 11 Jurors that were white and “Uncle Ben,” a negro. The men were locked up every night in a well known hotel in Pensacola and upon complaining of feeding badly Uncle Ben was impor tuned to enjoy the luxury of a shower bath. “Uncle Ben finally decided t.» take one of the showers,” said Mr. Brazel ton yesterday, “and he told us how much he enjoyed the bath. He told the court that the bath was much bet ter than rain which had furnished Ills past baths. On the following day Uncle Ben said he had enjoyed another shower and finally on the third day the old man completely lost his mind. “Within less time than it requires to relate this story of the effects of three shower baths Uncle Ben was a raving maniac. He was sent to a hos pital and the case resulted in a mis trial. Tn all my years of experience as a court reported I have never before known of such an incident nor have I ever known a man to lose his mind from the effects of three shower baths." Pastors to Exchange Pulpits Rev. Edward E. Cobb of St. Jon ns Episcopal church of Montgomery, and Dr. W. X. Claybrook of St. Mary's-on the-Hlghlands will exchange pulpits on Sunday. Dr. Cobb will conduct the Sun day services as follows: Holy commun ion 7:30 o’clock a. m.; morning; prayer and sermon at 11. and evening'prayer and sermon at 8 o'clock. ASHAMEDOF HER BAD COMPLEXION Many an otherwise attractive girl Is a social failure because of a poor com plexion. If your skin is not naturally fresh, smooth and glowing, or has suf fered from an unwise use of cosmetics, Reslnol Soap and Reslnol Ointment will almost surely clear it In a normal, healthy way. It Is so easy, too. Just bathe your face for several min utes with Reslnol Soap and hot water, working the creamy lather into the skin gently with the finger tips. Then wash off with more Reslnol Soap and warm water, finishing with a dash of clear, cold water to close the pores. Do this regularly once or twice a day, occasionally spreading on a little Resl nol Ointment for ten or fifteen minutes before using Reslnol Soap, and you will be astonished how quickly the healing, antiseptic Reslnol medication suothes and cleanses the pores, removes pimples and blackheads, and leaves the complex ion clear, fresh and velvety. Reslnol Soap and Ointment are sold by all drug gists.

Mi-Oauxhv will assume chaige of the Jefferson County Savings bunk as president Tuesday night. At a meet ing to be held Tuesday Mi-Cuim Tilton will be elected vice president and It Is expected that nslde from these two executive officers there will be a« additional vice president. No statement, however, has been is sued in that connection. The officials will have a conference Tdesday with Alex Walker, slate superintendent of banks, and Dick Wilkes, his assist ant, at which time tho entire question of reopening will be finally closed up. It is now expected that not a moment will be lost by the new officers 111 getting the bank again In running condition. The reopening: will be the occasion for considerable elation here. It has all along been considered a great in dication of the soundness of the finan cial situation that a bank as old anti as Important as the Jefferson County could suspend and make no greater flurry in tin* local financial circles than it actually did. But for the bank to be i eopened in such short space of time Is considered a still greater tribute lo the business situation here. The new plans of the bank contemplate a large sum of new money and aside from this the incorporation of the bank into a national bank before tho end 01 the year. This will give Birmingham three national banks. The impression here is that the re organization committee has made quite n fortunate choice in Mr. McGaughy. Ho was reared here in the banking business and has been associated more or less with tho local bankers since he has been occupying an executive position. Mr. McCiuughy, under Colonel Byerly of Chattanooga, has developed into one of tho best informed lank t rs In the state. Ills election to the presidency of the Jefferson County brings to that institution a man well acquainted with state banking condi tions as well as a man that has been tried for many years and found to b ? an executives of unusual ability. No Statement Made Regard ing Plans for Alabama Power Co. Development Col. o. R. Hood of Gadsden, one of the jj best known lawyers in Alabama, was here j yesterday In conference with T. W. Mar- ) tin. vice president and general counsel for the Alabama Power company. ' Mr. Hood is attorney for the company j rl Gadsden, and while no statement was given out for publication, it was sug- j I Rested that the extensive plan for better * merits in this state, as announced last f [ Sunday, was discussed by Mr. Hood and Mr. Martin. It is well known that the. Alabama j Power company is to start extensive bet terments wherein Ktowah county will j profit to an unusually important extent. The announcement a few days ago that the Alabama Power company was ne gotiating for the street railway at Gads den. which connects the trio of cities, j was said to have boon Ill-founded. It was explained by the owners of the line, \ according to an announcement here, that j less than one half of the reported price. I which was $1,000,000, would be enough t'j f secure the street railways. It was also denied that negotiations were under way at this time. p Mr. Hood said while here that Gadsden vviu progressing steadily and that there wn**. every reason for the sanguine hope out« rtalned by all true boosters of Gads den that at no distant time It would bo otic of the foremost of southern Indus trial cities. He returned home last night. _______ f. BURGLARS LEAVE SOME SMALL GIFTS 1 Walter Blackman, The Age-Herald car toonist, wants to Insert u card uf thanks because someone who tried to burglarise his house yesterday afternoon didn't take anything but left a nice dog collar on the door. Mr. Blackman's house at 1303 Seven teenth avenue, south, and that of his neighbor, K. C. Rod her, 1301 Seventeenth avenue, south, were ransacked from top to bottom during tho afternoon while the families were absent. Mvery closet and drawer was entered: even the bedding was torn off and edges of rugs raised. So far as could be learned last night noth ing had been taken, but the dog collar was left at the Blackman home, while a penny was left on the mantle at the Rod her home. Tt Is presumed the intruders were hunting money, but there was no money in either house. __i . . . HOLD CONFERENCE • ON DOPE PROBLEM -J The three city commissioners, Dr. it. M. Cunningham, city health officer, and Dr. Charles Whelan, city physi cian, held an extended conference yes terday afternoon over the new federal • fj statute regulating the sale of cocaine and other drugs popularly know'ri as "dope.” It is stated that tho dope fiends of Birmingham are in deplorable condi tion because they suddenly find it im- j possible for them to get their required amounts of tho drugs and that some of them are liable to do something' desperate. The conference was behind j closed doors and extended sometime, but it was stated there w'as no an | nouncement to be made of what oc curred. -——- '!
