)eclares Barber Is Erratic i and Appeals Demagogi cally to People ‘CHANGEABLE AS THE WIND,” HE DECLARES las Not Given Full Facts in Tele phone Deals—Rate Matter Can t Be Tried Upon Street Corners. Is a Republican In an attack on Arlle Barber, ema latlng from the lips of Sydney J. Bowie, the last meeting of the advocates of the ■andidacy of Judge A. O. Lane came to l close at the courthouse last night. Mr. Bowie likened Arlle Barber to several dif ferent things, Baying he was erratic, ut tered half-truths, and appealed demagog ically to the people, using absurdities in his "silly chatter after the manner of the ballyhoo men at cheap showa." Solicitor Hugo L. Black presided over the meeting and introduced the speak ers. of which there were several. Mr. Bowie closed the iheetlng. 8enator Frank S. White was the first speaker, following Mr. Black. He referred to Judge Lane’s fitness for the office which he holds and called upon the people to indorse his service with an overwhelm ing majority at the polls tomorrow. Mr. Bowie began his address with the statement that he had nothing against Arlio Barber personally; that he would not indulge in personalities. He then proceeded to take several of Mr. Bar ber's chief arguments and dissect them, telling his bearers that Barber uttered only half-truths in many of hfs state ments to tlie people; that he was "change able as the wind," and that he was tem peramentally unfit for the office to w-hlch he aspired on several counts, all of which Mr. Bowie gave to the crowd with much emphasis. “Demagogic Appeals" "Mr. Barber is down on the street cor ner now arguing that because France and England have borrowed $500,000,000 in America the people of Birmingham ought to vote for him next Monday,” began Mr. Bowie. "He also says there are 40,000 people in Birmingham who haven't a cent. He says 10 men only made up this huge loan to foreign powers. He did not say, however, that if this loan had not been made the laborers in the United States would have no work; that business would be at a standstill; that the loan had to be made in order that the business of this country could con tinue. Such demngogic appeals are dis gusting! (Tlie crowd applauded vocifer ously). “It is but the part of justice that we should stand by those who have proven themselves capable, and Judge Lane has done that. Barber Is not fitted for this high position for several reasons. Or\u of them Is because of his demagogic ab surdities.

Four thousand people went to the city commissioners and asked them to consolidate the two telephone com panies operating in Birmingham at that time to the Inconvenience of the general public, and the commission acted only on the demands of the people. “He refers to the franchise, and says we should get a million dollars a year foi this telephone franchise. Now, as to that, the Bell Telephone company got that franchise 30 years ago, when Blr mingham was hut a village and when the city would have been wiling to pay the company to come here. And about the raise in rates: It was patent that the company was not getting a fair re turn, on its investment. We all are will ing that anyone should get a fair return on the money he invests. And, in order to get improvements needed here, it was necessary that ttye telephone company get more money for its service. Is a Judicial Question “If the rates are unfair, it is a judi cial question and should be settled in the courts, and Judge Lane did everything in his power to have the matter settled in the courts. It can’t be tried upon the street corners In Birmingham or else where. "I have no objection to a man who is born a republican, or to a man who Is a republican because of Ifls honest convictions. I don’t agree with him, however. I am a democrat and I believe that under the guidance of Woodrow Wilson this country has made commer cial strides, has been more prosperous, and has taken a higher place among the nations of the world than it ever could have taken under Theodore Roosevelt. (The crowd applauded full five minutes). Mr. Bowie resumed: "But I do have an objection to a man who claims to be a republican, bull mooBe and socialist. 1 don’t approve of the man who is so changeable in his party affiliations. It argues unfitness, Instability. “The silly chatter in which Barber in dulges. the half-truths he tells go to show that he is temperamentally unfitted for this position.” Mr. Bowie then told the story of a Tennessee politician who was presiding over a meeting of his party at which they were attempting to nominate a cer tain member of the party ror governor. The opposing faction could not get a voice in the proceedings because of the favoritism of the chairman. Finally one huge mountaineer went out and got two or three drinks and returned to the hall, determined to be recognized by the chair or break up the meeting. ILe clambered up on a chair and shouted, “Mr. Speak er,” several times. The chair finally was forced to take notice of him. "Hit down,” sai4 the speaker, “You’re drunk.” The delegate answered with deadly calm: “Yes, Mr. Speaker, I am drunk; that’s a temporary affliction. You’re a dam phool; that’s permanent. You’ll never get over it.” The crowd laughed boisterously, and when quiet had been restored Mr. Bowie said: “Now, gentlemen, I have nothing against Mr. Barber personaly, but-” and the crowd went Into convulsions again. “If I ever support a man for office and I find ho is supported by gamblers and blind tiger operators, my C>od. I’ll never vote for him!” shouted Mr. Bowie, re suming his address. “Something is wrong when a man is supported for office by outlaws. Blows Hot and Cold “You know what he reminds me of? I’ll tell you a little fable which will il lustrate It. Once upon a time, so the story goes, a man and a monkey entered into a partnership. One morning they took a walk before breakfast. It was a cold morning and the man blew into his hands. The monkey asked him why he did It. 'To keep them warm,’ answered the man. Well, that satisfied the mon key and he said nothing. They returned to the house and had breakfast. The man blew Into his coffee. ‘Why do you blow your coffee?’ asked the monkey. ‘To cool it,” the man replied. “ ’This partnership is dissolved,' de clared the monkey rising from the table. ‘I’ll have no dealing with a man who blows hot and cold frofn ^ the same mouth.’ “That’s Barber, gentlemen.” Solicitor Black closed the meeting with an appeal to those present to vote to morrow for Judge Bane and make his majority overwhelming. There were two ladies In the audience. The crowd was estimated at about 200.

"There was a crash and a second later the whole building was enveloped In flames. 1 jumped for the door and as I gained the open I looked back and saw one of the men who was Drought out dead fall on the floor and bury his face in his hands. His clothes were burned from his body In a twinkling and his flesh commenced to blacken from the flames' contact with his body. The sight was horrible. Half mad, I stumbled up to ward the gate and told them what had happened. About eight or nine men were in there when the explosion hap pened. I don’t know whether or not all were killed. I am thankful I was spared.” The body of J. P. Donnelly was burned to a crisp. The face and part of the torso were burned away und it was sometime before bis remains could be identified. The body of Perry Poor was badly burned. One of the limbs was burned off, his face burned beyond recognition und bis arms burned to the bone. L*. J. Wright was charred from head to foot and the flesh was burned completely away on his should ers. C. H. Cole is badly burned about the face and limbs. It is not thought he can recover. He is at the Tennessee Coal, Iron and Railroad company's hos pital in Knsley. It was stated at the COMB SAGE TEA INTO GRAY HAIG A Mixture of Sage and Sulphur Darkens the Hair Beauti fully and Evenly Almost everyone knows that Sage Tea and Sulphur, properly compounded brings back the natural color and lustre to the hair when faded, streaked or gray; also ends dandruff. Itching scalp and stops falling hair. Years ago the only way to get this mixture was to make it at home, tfvhlch is mussy and troublesome. Nowadays, by asking at any drug store for "Wyeth’s Sage and flulphur Compound," you'll get a arge bottle of this famous old recipe for about SO cents. Don't stay gray! Trylt! No one can possibly tell that you darkened your hair, as It does It bo naturally and even ly. You dampen a sponge or soft brush with It and draw this through your hair, taking one small strand at a time; by mornlpg the gray hair disappears, and after another application or two, your hair becomes beautifully dark, thick and glossy. BARBER’S LAST ADDRESS TO LARGE CROWD IS FREE FROM PASSION AND VENOM Arlie Barber closed *his campaign for the office of commissioner lust night by ad dressing a great crowd of people at the corner of the Florence hotel. When he arrived, a large number of people were awaiting. As soon as he stood and addressed tho first sentence to his audience, people, having sharply looked In the direction of the sound, walked rapidly to where the speaker stood. And thus the crowd constantly growing, was almost as large as that which some months ago stood about Captain Hobson in front of the Jefferson theatre. ••••••••••••••••••■•••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••I Mr. Barber’h nddrcBS was neither Im passioned nor venom-tipped. In effect, he repeated the remarks he made Friday on the corner of First avenue and Twen ty-first street—remarks which were re produced verbatim in The Age-Herald. His hearerB were unusually attentive, and kind in their responses. His friends pre dicted n victory for him at the polls Monday. Mr. Barber thanked his friends who had stood to hear him, and who had Indicated their Intention to express their preference for him at the ballot box. hospital that he was conscious and in great agony. He told one of the nurses that he thought five or six men were dead in the pumphouse. George Gordon Crawford, president; and Frank H. Crockard. vice president and general manager of the Tennessee Coal, Iron and Railroad company, are out of the city. No statement could be obtained from the officials who went to the scene. Harry Ur by, super intendent of the plnnt, was on the scene a few minutes after the accident. He refused to make a statement. H. C.
