This boy las the build to make a strong catcher u:d so far has handled the difficult do iveries of the "bushes" in a flawless nar.ner. The record of Johnson follows: George Anderson Johnson, born at I'jltimore, Md., March 28. 1892; attend ed the public schools and then started out his baseball career on the sand lots about Baltimore. Entered pro fersional baseball in 1913 with the isnsioi ciud oi inf* Anpaianuan league as a catcher and outfielder. In 1914 was out of professional baseball, but was recommended to Moleswforth for j a spring try-out this season. “Stuffy” Johnson walloped for .417 in a twilight” league in Maryland last summer and this season in the yanntgan games has hit the pill in a hearty fashion. “Stuffy” also throw's to second base ac curately and in every way looks like a “find” for Molesworth. It is certain that Molc-y will keep this bov ns long an «•* can, though it Is not likely that John son will become a regular Baron this season, owing to the excellent qualities of John Wallace and George Hale. ••••••••••■••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••■•••a•*•••* BARONS’ TRIP TO FLORIDA GOOD ADVERTISING FOR THE CITY OF BIRMINGHAM Orlando, Fla., March 18.—(Special.)—That v the Barons’ trip to Florida is a remark ible advertising venture for the city of Birmingham is never better manifested :han by the exclamations of surprise and wonder from the winter tourists who at :end the practice games of the athletes 1 jvery afternoon at Exposition park. These tourists look at the boys plajdng anil see the number of them and then ask: "But I never knew that Birmingham ' was in the National or American league." "Birmingham is not in the major ' eagues,’’ someone will say, "it is in the , Southern league and last season the club won the pennant.’’ "Southern league? Don’t believe 1 have 1 sver heard of it." ■ "Well, it is a fast baseball league all \ ight for these Barons certainly can play tall." « "And Birmingham,'’ mused the tourist. ; ‘Birmingham must be some city to sup port a team so royally that it can afford Q come to Orlando for spring training. Vnd with more players r.ian the big najor leaguers carry." * * • And then likely as not the tourist will 1 nake inquiries about Birmingham and on 'indlng out that it is the most progres sive city in the south will promise him lelf to ride home with a stop-over in the i ‘Magic. City." That’s how the Barons ■ ire advertising Birmingham—and this fact should be duly appreciated. * * * < Birmingham won the pennant last sea ion. Now whether it was because the Bir- i nlngham public was accustomed to the 1 Barons winning pennants or other rea sons it is a well known fact that very ! ittle appreciation was shown the Karons for the game winning fight they had nade. However, it is away from home ; ;bat the "bold and battle-scarred" get i :he en com Funis for the Orlando people are utdoing themselves in showing the 3arons a good time. - * * * It is a safe wager that the Barons do nore helpful advertising by this Florida raining trip than the literature of the Chamber of Commerce will do in the next }ix months. And it is constructive ad vertising for tiie city. * * * Umpire Scott Chesnutt is so impressed vith tho wonderful weather in Orlando hat he is planning on organizing a wln er league. The following cities will be 'tftken in:” Orlando, Jacksonville, Tampa md Daytona. Games will be played wice a* wreek. Old Scotty is enthusiastic over the idea md thinks that he will be able to 1m )ress a few of tho millionaires who have heir winter homes in this locality in he venture. “Gosh,” said Scotty. “Jimmie Gilmore organized the Federal league by his chin nusic and I know' that guy hasn’t any hing on me wdien it comes to talking.” Assentive "Ayes.” from Robert Tyson, I.

Jr.” Immediately there was a roar from he Philadelphia bunch, but Martin was ‘silenced” for the rest of the afternoon, n saying farewell to the scribes, Martin aid: “That fellow' Chesnutt is a hard guy. }id you get the crack he made at me. 3ut bums or not wc gave you fellows a rood fight.” B.

LETTERS TO EDITOR About the Bond Issue To the Editor of The Age-Herald: I again beg for space in your columns to air my viws in regaid vo the coming election for a bond Issue of $1,250,000. 1 think this moment apropos to say a few' words. The people at the meeting o? the city commission yesterday, according to their different viws expressed in y our paper this morning, seem anxious to know' some facts which bear upon this question and I desire to furnish .-•ome of these facts. In the first place, it will be neces sary to raise our tax rate 5 mills on the dollar before tlie money could be realized on these bonds. This is not necessary for reasons patent to every body but tax dodgers. This statement. I have before offered to substantiat(> by the tax books at the courthouse if it is desired. t rior to me adoption or a commis sion form of government, the hoard of aldermen called upon the city for a bond issue of more than $400,000. .Tust after the adoption of the commission form of government, tve were called upon for a bond issue of $40<>,O00 to wipe out some debts in the suburbs. These debts In actual figures amounted to $226,000. These bonds were sold for $412,000. Ono year later a state ment of the city’s financial department showed $17,000 of these same debts still unpaid. What became of the other $116,000 and also tilts $17,000? Eighteen months later we were called upon to vote for bonds for $1 400,000 which carried. Now 18 months later again we are asked to vote an other bond issue of $1,250,000. Where is it going to stop? The same logic would warrant me mortgaging my landlord's house to pay the grocery bill every time it came due, if I hal the great newspapers of the citv back of me. The city of Birmingham lias never paid a penny of Its bonded indebted ness since it was chartered. It has voted bonds to pay debts, it has voted bonds to pay interest on bonds, etc., ad nauseum. It now owes bonds, the interest upon which is $900 per day. This bond issue will increase them $200 per day, or. to be exact. $171,23 pere day. On.- deficit for running the citv is $1000 per day according to the last financial statement. Tills deficit is all interest on bonds. Where will It end? It is all very well to borrow money to meet nil contingencies, but "what will the harvest of such puerile acts be?' There Js but one juatlfcatlon for tills bond issue, that is that we must have the money now and that something is done (not promised, but done) to pre vent u continuous performance along tills line, it is true that we need the money, but in 18 months we wlil need the money again. All know that tho raise of 5 mills on the dollar will, not meet the contingency. It will not meet It for It will not increase the amount of money actually paid In by the large tax dodger. The people who are now- paying their full share of taxes are paying ail they will Bland. They are paying all they can pay. Answer this question, you citizens who are uctually paying taxes on the actual value (60 per cent of It) on your property. Can you pay any more? Don't you find the present bur den all that you can bear? If you vote for this bond Issue, It will mean an Increase in your tax rate. Can you pay It? Don’t vote for this bond issue on promises from the state legislators, for 1 have it direct from such members that antitrust legislation cannot be put through the present legislature. This means that no adequate tax law will be put through for these 'rusts with their immense property are the tax dodgers, which if they paid their full tax share, we would have plenty of money. No tax law which allows an owner of property lo assess his own property on his own word, is adequate. In states which arc free from the troubles under which we are struggling, the tax laws require that, the tax assessor must be on or in the presence of all property assessed. Tills law would meet our demands, but it will never be put through a legislature dominated by the trusts. That this present leg islature Is so Is evidenced by tile as phyxiation of the Lewis Joint resolu tion. It has been peacefully laid to rest. Irrevocably Interned. Yes, I have a remedy. The Bell Tele Phone company has never paid ono cent for the use of our city streets. One million dollars would be cheap for the use of the streets for tho past 30 years, and for the next 30 years. Why not ask them for that amount? Why not demand that amount? One of the members of our present city com mission gave his sacred promise to a citizen of this city that )t that com pany had never paid anything, they would certainly do so. That was over a year ago and no record of such a request Is obtainable. Why ahould they pile up untold millions that arc In their vaults In New York and use our streets scot free? One other feature of the bond issue then I will close. This bond Issue, as I undertsand It, Is to be divided Into two parts. One of $750,000 to pay for past deficit, the other of $500,600 to meet the deficit from April 1 to October 1, 1916. This Is a period of 180 days. Their last financial statement showed a deficit for the past year of $1010 per day. They are cutting expenses: what Is the $600,000 for? Yours, DR. CHAS. P. COPELAND. Birmingham, March 18, 1S15.

I i ,J Boys Shoes Mail Orders Filled Delivery Free FRIVOLOUS^FACTSANDFANC FRESH FROM THE BA RON C Orlando, Fla., March 17.—(Special.) That the Barons have made a favorablo Impression with Orlandlans Is shown by the fact that the Board of Trade of this pretty little city adopted a resolution to give a banquet to the Birmingham Base ball club In the early part of next week. The Barons will also be taken out In au tomobiles and generally shown a good time all over the city. The Barons are appreciated hi Orlando. The people of tliia Florida city are fa miliar with the record of this doughty aggregation of ball tossers. They know that In the pest five seasons Carleton Molesworth h ) won three pennants and has never finished below fourth place. The fans of Orlando appreciate having the Southern league champions In their midst and the quiet, modest demeanor of the Bgrons has completely wan their confi dence. Orlandlans seel: to outdo each other In being hospitable to the visiting ball club. The Barons since their arrival in Orlan do have comported themselves very agree ably. Practical jokes and boyish rowdy Ismc were cut out and the Barons always neatly dressed leave the hotel for the ball grounds and on their return sit about the lobby or attend the moving picture theatres when they have no other social engagements In the everlng. There Is no standing about on street corners and pull ing "Claes D” stuff by atarlng and welling at every person that passes by. The Barons travel and behave as a major league club, quietly, without ostentation and with dignity. After nursing Ills arm for several days, Dave Roth, now announcee that he Is In shape, and Molesworth believes that the big boy will be a big winner this season for the "bold and battled ecarred. Yeaterday afternoon Dare Roth warmed up with one of the recruit catchers and displayed an abundance of steam. He also threw a few balls that had a little more than the cover on ’em. With big Dave Roth In shape the uutlook for the Btuons assumes a roseate hue. Roth was acquired from the Chicago "White Sox" early laBt season. At the time his arm was not In shape and al though carefully nursed. Roth had trou ble with his wing throughout the season. It was stated that ’too much spltball" was the cause of the flaccid arm. However, despite the fact that Roth could not throw the pill very fast to the wily Southern league batters he dis played rare judgment In pitching and managed to win more games than he lost. It was stated then that If the big fellow ever got In shape that he would be e terror in the Southern circuit, for ho Is considered a very “wise" pitcher. • • * Dickey Robertaon has a kink In his arm. The cool winds that blow across the moor has stiffened the 11 unents of Dicky's soup-bone, and this stellar per former is temporarily sojourning In the outfield whenever the ’’yennlgans'’ and the "regulars" hook up In battl.'. Robert son Is displaying some rare class as an outfielder and has a sure batting eye that Is a terror to the rookie pitchers. • • • Omar Hardgrove Is ths pltchsr that ths Barons will sursly depend on for early spring victories, as ths old %ias ter is now In grs id shape. According to Omar this should bs one of his best seasons as he Is enjoying good health and has gained a fsw pounds in weight, which makes him stronger and better able to withstand an arduous cham pionship campaign. Hardy thinks that By RICHARD F. LtJSSIKR the Barons will repeat this season ami annex another bunting. * • * Hardgrov© in not only In grand shape but lie 1h training assiduously ©very morning and afternoon. The old boy Is making the yougsters ashamed of them selves by his cavorting* around th© race track. Hardy will run a couple of miles; play "pepper" ball as long as someone will play with him and ifun another couple of miles. He will then pitch to the batters and to the re cruit catcher* in relay*. The old fox has u fast ball this spring that will fool many of the Southern leagers who think that Hardy is all in. * * • The arduous training of Hardgrov© is emulated by tlie other Baron veter ans. Clyde McBride. Hoy Ellam and Charlie Carroll. This quartet of veter ans realise that baseball is a serious business and are preparing themselves with great care to bo fit when the starting gong rings. In Orlando it is tiie veterans this season who are In tlie pink of condition and ready to jump in the game at any moment. • • * Charlie ("Red") Btewart is rapidly getting In shape. H© is still as speedy as ever. Yesterday in a practice game he laid down a perfect bunt and beat th© throw to first several feet. If "Red" gets his eye on the ball this season he will make it very difficult for anyone to beat him out of a regular job In the Baronial outfield. • • * Th* Barons that made Hie Invasion to Daytona-by-ths-Sea were mighty glad to return to Orlando. The trip ban-; to this garden spot of Florida was mail" without ac.eldent or incident out of the ordinary. It was a beautiful day, al though the wind was rather sharp and tha touring Barone enjoyed tlie 6<i-mll» drive through the orange groves, tha celery lands and tils wild Jungles. ... The name Barons to tha Birmingham club will bs changed by the fans, it Is understood, to that of “Travelers" in tha near future. The .reason is easily perceptible. In 1913 the Barons finished In third place and visited Cuba at the close of the season. Last season they 1 annexed the pennant 1 waukee for a post-4 ,» games and then went to Cuba again. ’» This spring they aro training in Or lando and Incidontly traveling all over Florida In automobiles on barnstorm ing trips. “Travelers” it WQuld appear is a very apprnprlte name for the doughty henchmen of Carleton Moles- • worth. * * t From now until the 20th of the month when the Carons leave this city foe* home. the schedule calls for exhibition games every day. Several major league clubs will bo met und these encounters, if not productive of victories for the Barons, have the added merit of pro viding excellent practice and also have great educational value on the young sters. *00 Sunday the Barons will enjoy open house at the Country club and will die port themselves on the golf links, ft appears that Clyde McBride recentl) was on the links and made one good drive and since that time has been talk ing golf. According to the genial Mac. golf is some game and he intends to attain some proficiency if steady prac tice will help. Other embyro golfers In the Baronial ranks ure Dicky Ruben son. Dave Roth. Roy Ellam. Arthur Johnson and Omar Hardgrove. rt Is plannecl to take Gladys Molesworth out to the links Sunday afternoon and aho\v £ the rotund manager just how Francia Ouimot makes a Mrlve. However, to he candid the knowledge of golf with tho majority of the Barons is limited in that they know lmw lo duck when someone yells: “Fore!” 0 0 0 Roy'Ellam, the brainy captain of til J Barons for several seasons, Is showing.' such dnsxIInK footwork around the L shorttlehl that his teammates have ,1 dubbed him, "Speed" Ellam. The poer less shortstop had Ion* passed without J having a nickname liitlched on to him ■* but he certainly has one now that tits t him. The moment (he fans at Rlck tvoud bCRln to see Roy scoop them up It will occur to them that "Speed’ Ellam is a very appropriate name for the Korrel-topped El Capitau of the Barons. HIGH SCHOOL BASEBALL PROSPECTS LOOK BRIGHT '? A teum that promise* to be exceedingly good lri the hitting department and a fast fielding U being built up by Coach Courlcux to represent Central High school the coming season In state baseball. Dis appointment was expressed when It was l.mrned that "Slick” Davis, heavy hitting shortstop for the past two years, would net be seen In action this season. Qlllem, also of last year's champion team, le also undecided as whether he will report. As Coach Courleux Is badly In need of a good second sacker, efforts are being made to Induce this athlete to come Into tho fold. The squad has now been cut down to about 25 candidates, of which six are pitchers. Infleldars ars galore and all are satisfactory except the keystone posi tion. The catching department Is show ing up very poor and the team Is aad'y In need of a hefty receiver. The outfield ers are the most promising of all asparl anls. One of last year's squad Is back In his old place and the other two gar dens are being fought for from all sides. Only the lightest practice has been en dured and no attempt wilt be made to —.—■.
