SHOP I90£ 8CC01U> AV& Griffin’s Successors JUDICIAL CIRCUIT BILL IS ATTRACTING WIDE INTEREST By L. 8. BETTY Montgomery, August 2S.—(Special.) Among the numerous bills proposed by the recess committee on the judiciary, it: is doubtful if any one has attracted wider attention among the lawyers of the state than the judicial circuit court meas ure. This bill passed the senate several days ago, and probably will be considered in tiie house next week. As is known, the measure provides 24 Judicial circuits. There are 1C circuits un der the present law. But in increasing the number of circuits the proposed new law imposes additional duties and jurisdiction upon the judges pre siding over the circuits. The new law pro\ ides machinery by which the circuit courts shall exercise the duties hereto fore performed by law and equity and .chancery courts, these latter tribunals having been abolished by bills which passed the legislature sometime ago. The circuit court bill, as passed by the senate, contains a number of amend ments proposed by the committee on the Judiciary, hence the new' divisions are dif ferent in many respects from the circuits I as proposed by the recess committee. Following are the proposed new cir cuits contained in the senate bill: First Circuit—Choctaw, Clarke, Marengo and Washington. Second Circuit—Baldwin, Butler, Con ecuh, Crenshaw and Escambia. Third Circuit—Barbour, Bullock, Dale end Russell. Fourth Circuit—Dallas. Fifth Circuit—Chambers, Lee, Macon and Elmore. Sixth Circuit—Fayette, Lamar and Pick ens. Seventh Circuit—Shelby and Talladega. Eighth Circuit—Madison and Jackson. Ninth Circuit—Cherokee, DeKalb and Marshall. Tenth Circuit—Jefferson. Eleventh Circuit—Colbert, Franklin, Lauderdale and Marion. Twelfth Circuit—Geneva, Henry and Houston. Thirteenth Circuit—Mobile. Fourteenth Circuit—Cullman, Lawrence, Walker and Winston. Fifteenth Circuit—Montgomery. Sixteenth Circuit—Etowah, Blount and St. Clair. Seventeenth Circuit—Autauga, Bibb, j Chilton and Perry. Eighteenth Circuit—Calhoun. Nineteenth Circuit—Limestone and Mor gan Twentieth Circuit—Coffee, Covington and Pike. Twenty-first Circuit—Clay, Cleburne, Coosa, Randolph and Tallapoosa. Twenty-second Circuit—Lowndes, Wil cox and Monroe. Twenty-third Circuit—Tuscaloosa.

Action is expected next week. JUDGE WILL FIGHT COMMISSION BILL Montgomery, August 28.—(Special.) Senator Judge will not permit the pas sage through the senate of the ‘building commission” bill which would create for Jefferson county a commission to nave charge of all public buildlings, municipal and county, and to have in band all con struction in progress or contemplation. The bill names the commission, as is re membered, and provides taht it shall serve, as did the sanitary sewer commission, without pay. The 16 gentlemen named in the bill are; among the best known men of Jefferson county. BAD OUTLOOK FOR CONDEMNATION BILL Montgomery. August 28.—CSpeclai. > The Birmingham “condemnation” bill, a. measure which would give Birmingham j the right to condemn for purchase rhe property of the Birmingham Waterworks company, is in precarious shape. Efforts to have it reported by the house committee municipal corporations have! faied. One member of that committee said I j yesterday: “Despite the merits of the bill, It wlli be brought forth only with great difficulty ' because of the courtesy due the Jefferson ' county members of tho committee, Mr. ; Weakley and Mr. Scott, both of whom oppose the passage of the bill. SUPPORT AMENDMENT TO LICENSE BILL Montgomery, August 28.—(Special.) | All local option members of the lcgls-' lature will support the amendmeht to the license bill proposed by Senator Lewis of Macon, that which requires the codec tlon by express companies of a tax of 10 cents on all shipments of beer and whisky. Senator Lewis contends thut the expr'sq companies handle so many shipments that from this source of taxathib the state would receive about $100,000 per annum. “And none of the consignees." he added, “would object to the payment of the small toll.” Senator Judge of Jefferson stated this afternoon that he would support the amendment, and it is the general con clusion that practical’y every other local option 1st w!Tl do so. WANT ASSISTANT FOR DR. OATES Montgomery, August 28.—(Special.) A state-wide cry goes up for .the legisla ture to pass a bin providing new assist ants for Dr. Oates, state prison inspector, in that he might he provided witli means for carrying out his new duties respecting the inforcement of the child labor laws. Dr. Oates has stated quite frankly that without new' assistants he cannot in force the law as It should be inforced, and that the legislature's failure to enact the bill would nullify the law. For that reason, all people interested in child labor are petitioning the legislature to act. SENATE IS BUSY WITH LICENSE BILL Montgomery, August 28.—(Special.) The senate is still wrestling with that provision of the license bill which imposes a tax of ’4 of 1 cent on every bottle of coca-cola bottled In Alabama. Crawford Johnson of Birmingham contends that this proposed tax is pro hibitive, and that it will result In all bottling companies removing their plants from Alabama and shipping their wares into the state. The bottlers have offered a substitute basing the taxation on bottling ma chines of certain capacity, and claim that this substitute would put into the treasury as receipts from bottling w’orks about $30,00 In excess of receipts previously collected. The action of the senate respecting this matter cannot be forecast. SALARY BILL TO BE AMENDED Montgomery, August 28.—(Special.) The indications are that the Jefferson county salary bill, setting out the amount of salary to be paid officials by the county as soon as the system of fees Is eliminated, will be amended by Senator Judge so that the probaio judges of the future shall draw $6500 per annum Instead of $5000 as the bill In its present shape contemplates. This amendment would make the pro bate judge a bettei paid official than tiie sheriff, for the bill provides that the sheriff shall receive $6000. Many claim that this amendment would be just, that while any reputable citizen might aer\e acceptably as sheriff, a probate Judge would in addition to executive ability, have a highly highly developed judicial temperament. GOVERNOR REVIEWS NATIONAL GUARD Montgomery, August 28.—(Special.) | Governor Henderson, attended by his staff, this afternoon reviewed the troops • L the First infantry, Alabama National Guard, which has been in encampment here since last Sunday. Every company in the regiment passed in review’ before the governor, and it was declared the regiment had never sliow’n up to better advantage. Follow ing the parade, the governor and his staff inspected the encampment grounds, and later the officers of the regiment entertained the official party at supper. A large number of Montgomery people witnessed the parade. The encampment of the First regi ment has been pronounced the most suc -ctssful ever held in Montgomery, and both officers and men are believed to have benefited by the week’s practice. The Second infantry will encamp here next week and on the following week the Fourth regiment wfill be in camp. INJUSTICE DONE REPRESENTATIVE DAVIS Montgomery, August 28.—(Special.) Unintentional injustice was done Rep resentative Davie of Bibb county by The Age-Herald correspondent last week in inadvertently omitting his name in the list of those recorded as \oting in support of the measure abol ishing the convict lease system. | Representative Davie voted for the passage of the bill but through mistake iis name did not appear in the list of loose voting for the bill. The Bibb county representative is an ardent ad vocate and supporter of the plan to take convicts out of the mines and he has championed that cause during the entire session. OPPOSITION TO~ SOLICITORS’ BILL Montgomery, August 28.—(Special.) Opposition to the bill regulating solicitors of the state was vigorously presented be fore the house committee on the judiciary today by Solicitors M. T. Ormond of Tuscaloosa and D. C. Almon of De catur. The bill passed the senate this week. U was proposed by the recess com mittee on the judiciary and contains in the opinion of solicitors of the state, a number of drastic provisions. One uf the regulations, and that to which the greatest opposition is being made, prohibits solicitors from accepting out side employment of any kind. The bill first contained the provision that so licitors should not represent public service corporations, but it was amend ed in the senate so as to prohibit so •icitors from accepting any kind of outside employment. The measure pro vides a salary of $3000 annually. It is understood that the house com mittee will make several material amendments to the bill, one of which will provide that solicitors shall re ceive a salary of $2400 annually, the salary authorized under the present lau, and be. allowed to accept other employment.

THE GOVERNMENT IS COMPLETING WORK ON TENNESSEE RIVER (Continued front Page One) on these investigations and probably $100,000 will be spent yet in ascertain ing whether this, one of the greatest dams ever proposed in the south, will be an advantage or disadvantage to the country. Between Florence and Riverton When the improvement between Florence and Riverton, on the Tennes see river, has been completed, not only will there bo a six-foot channel as con templated, but the river will be clear cl obstructions which has for over a century impeded navigation. The Col bert shoals improvement being com plete and the ben'efits fully appre ciated, the six-foot channel work is to continue with the $100,000 allotted by the last Congress and additional ap piopriations as required. Major Harts estimated that the channel work here would cost $690,000, though there has already been spent on Colbert shoals $2,321,358.50; between Chattanooga and Riverton, over a million dollars, ex clusive of Hale’s bar, for open chan nel work and over three million dol lars has been the outlay on the famous Muscle Shoals. Of this $100,000 very little has thus far been spent during the past month, though the money Is to be applied to improvements at Tus cumbia, Bar Buck Island and Roger’s Island in dredging and removing ob structions. This section of th*» Tennessee by re cent improvements has become a very Important factor during recent years. Originally, the navigation was limited to six months of the year, owing to the obstcles at Tuscumbia, Buck Island Shoals and Colbert and Big Tree shoals. The completion of the Colbert shoals canal in 1911 has been a boon to river traffic and has given It an impetus. At present the improvement at Tus cumbia is about 96 per cent complete, while Buck Island shoals has been com pleted but for the filling of the exca vated channel with sand and gravel, which has suggested and caused to be laid out a new line for the lower end of the cut, making it straight through out. Work on this channel is about 97 per cent complete, the Roger’s TBland shoals have been channeled about 40 per cent done, while the project as a whole was about 63 per cent complete July 1, 1915. The river improvement fleets have , during the past month been kept busy on Roger’s Island shoals drilling and blasting with the dredges Tennessee and Tuscumbia. employed here. The Tuscftmbia is casting about 1500 cubic yards of rock outside’ the cut monthly and rehandling 5600 cubic yards, while the other crafts are being utilized to an equal advantage. River Business Improving The Tennessee river, according to the reports received of the number of boats and barges passing through the Colbert shoals channel and the Hale’s bar lock and the tonnage of freight snow beyond peradventure that there is a steady improvement in the busi ness done on the lower Tennessee. The interstate commerce commission re cently made rulings which enable the steamboats to transfer freight directly to the railroad lines without any dis crimination and the transportation companies are annually becoming more formidable as competitors to the rail roads, with consequent lowering of freight rates generally.
