Of Our City Fathers—Lively Tilt
on the Bond Question.
Discussed and Passed Over—Mexican Negro
Immigrants Must Not Be Dumped
Into Birmingham.
The board of mayor and aldermen met
yesterday afternoon in regular semi
monthly session.
Present were the mayor, Aldermen
Ward, Duncan, Ullman, Enslen. Pearce,
Jackson, McCartin, Gillespie and Meade.
The petition of Jonas Schwab was dis
The mayor stated that he objected to
the Mexican negroes being dumped Into
Birmingham. The government, he said,
has undertaken to send them to their
homes and hereafter they will not be left
in Birmingham.
The mayor suggested that street rail
roads not In operation should be taken
up. He recommended that the president
of the Birmingham Railway and Electric
company be ordered to put at least two
mule cars within a week's notice on the
Behren park line or forfeit their fran
The mayor stated, on inquiry from Al
derman Ullman, that in his opinion a for
feiture of the Behren street car line
franchise would Include the franchise of
the entire system of the Birmingham
Railway and Electric company.
The subject was passed without defi
nite action.
Alderman Enslen of the finance com
mittee raised a Kick on the “cavalry
company" established at police head
quarters by the police commission. May
or VanHoose stated that the two horses
were needed to furnish efficient police
protection to residents in the outskirts
of the city. The Mil for horses, together
with a budget of‘other bills, was or
dered paid.
Alderman Ullman stated that he was
opposed to the purchase of goods by the
police commission .without first giving
the city notice. The mayor stated that
he had bought the goods himself, where
upon Alderman Ullman said that his re
marks on the subject were not in order.
The mayor stated that hereafter the
police requisitions would be first referred
to the board.
A resolution was introduced author
izing the mayor to execute the city's
notes to Steiner Bros, for $12,261.87-100
with 6 per cent interest, payment for
services performed by Steiner Bros, in
having the bonded obligations of the
city extended.
The mayor stated that the money to
be paid Steiner Bros, was commissions.
He was not in favor of executing the
note because the deal, he claimed, is not
yet complete, and under the contract
with Steiner Bros, the notes are receiv
able for taxes.
Alderman Ullman replied that the obli
gation to pay Steiner Bros, was binding
on the city, because they had performed
their part of the contract. Alderman Ull
man insisted that the notes bare face
notice that they were void if Steiner
Bros, do not fulfil their contract.
Alderman Gillespie said that he was
in favor of paying Steiner Bros., but he
did not want to allow the notes to be
receivable for taxes. He said that the
contract of June 10 with Steiner Bros,
contained nothing authorizing a note re
deemable In taxes. Mr. Gillespie consid
ered It a new contract, and said that
Steiner Bros, were acting on the supposi
tion, four months before the debt is due,
that the city will default at that time,
therefore he earnestly opposed it.
On motion of Alderman McCartin the
ordinance was laid on the table until
the next meeting.
On the motion of Alderman Ullman a
resolution was passed whereby the board
ratified the contract entered into by Al
derman Ullman and the New York Se
curity and Trust company. A resolution
was also passed ratifying the contract
between Alderman Ullman and E. t>.
Shepherd & Co. of New York.
Alderman Jackson read the bid of
Spiro & Long for repairing the North
side market. The matter was referred
back to the committee, the mayor added,
with power to act. The committee re
ported favorably on the extension of
the Birmingham Street Railway and
Electric company along Huntsville ave
nue. with tihe provision that the macad
amized road be not disturbed.
Alderman Enslen opposed the petition
of the railroad company on the ground
that a car line along the avenue will In
terfere with the travel of vehicles. Re
ferred back td the proper committees.
The two ordinances regarding sanitary
improvements on the Soudhside, mention
of which has been made hitherto, were
The petition of Emma Kimber, ask
ing for $1000 persoanl damages was re
ferred to the Judiciary committee. Peti
tltioner claims that she was injured by
stepping through a hole on the Twenty
second street bridge August 20.
A letetr was read from Chairman J.
P. Mudd of the police commission, call
ing the board's attention to the illegal
ity of the board's action in raising the
salaries of the city wardens.
The board went Into executive session
to approve the minutes of previous ex
ecutive sessions.
The board then adjourned.

—of the physical being is the result of draw
ing incessantly upon the reserve capital of
nerve force. The wear, tear and strain of
modem life are concentrated upon the nerv
ous system. The young men of our day be
come sufferers from nervous debility or ex
haustion, nervous prostration or weakness.
This may be the result of too much mental
worry and excitement, or the result of bad
practices and excesses, or pernicious habits,
contracted in youth, through ignorance.
They feel irritable, weak and nervous with
such distressing symptoms as backache,
dizziness, shooting pains in head or chest,
sometimes indigestion. The middle-aged
men, as well, suffer from exhaustion, loss of
manly power, low spirits, impaired moiuory,
and many derangements of mind and body.
The ill-used brain is morbidly wide awake
when the overworked business man attempts
to find rest in bed.
The physicians and specialists of the In
valids’ Hotel and Surgical Institute devote
their best energies to reclaiming and restor
ing such unfortunates to health and happi
ness. They have written a book of 168
pages, treating of these maladies and setting
forth a rational means of home-treatment
for their cure. It is sent securely seated, in

THERE are many GOOD life insurance companies, but among
them all there must be on: BEST. THE BEST is THE
EQUITABLE. If you wish to know why, send for: i, the
report of the Superintendent of Insurance for the State of New
York on the examination of The Equitable; 2, for actual results
of maturing policies ; 3, for statement of death claims paid in
1894. Then jou will know the three great reasons of The
Equitable’s supremacy: First, its financial stability; second,
its great profits and advantages to living policy-holders; third,
the promptness of its payments and liberality of its settlements.
