Fowlkes & Myatt received yesterday a ' pipe" or cask of imported olives In orig inal package, put up in Spain. The pipe contains 169 gallons, weighing 1630 pounds. This is the largest shipment of olives ever received in Rlrmingham. When it is remembered that olives are sold as a rule in half and pints the im mensity of the above amount is appre ciated; and when it is considered that in bulk and in pint package they cart be sold for about one-half the price as In small quanties the trade will naturally see and take advantage of the saving. By way of parenthesis may be added that these popular grocerymen are pre paring for the opening of another new feature in the commercial field here in their line. But Fowlkes & Myatt already' enjoy the picked trade of the city and suburbs, and being fully aware that this is the age not only of progress, but to sell the best goods for the least money, anything new they may do is not more than the trading public naturally expects of them. the U.

SALISBURY IS KEPT BUSY According; Interviews. With the Russian French, Austrian, Turkish, Chineseand Other Foreign Ministers. London, Oct. 19.—Much interest has been excited in diplomatic and political circles by the return to London of the Hon. Schomberg M. McDonnel, the pri vate secretary of Lord Salisbury, who was not generally known to have left England. It transpired that he returned on Wednesday from a secret mission to Constantinople. Outside of the mort In timate foreign office circles his presence in Constantinople was kept a close se cret, ami the fact that he had been sent on a mission to the Turk.Sh capital was not known to either the English or Eu ropean press. Though nothing is known officially as to the result of his mission. It Is sig nificant that coincident with his presence here tha official apprehension regarding the gravity ol' the situation in Turkey has increased. According to thoroughly liable Information the Mohammedan reform party, whch aims at the deposi tion of the sultan and the formation of a government under a constitution, relies upon the support of Great Britain in the event of a revolution proving eveti partly successful. On the other hand. It Is understood that the sultan has ob tained the assurance that three powers will support him against any movement tending to anarchy if he a-dheres faith fully to his Armenian compact. No in terference of the allied powers can go beyond the moral support without rup turing the alliance, owing to the diversity of the Interests involved, with a view to striking In when the upheaval of the Turks comes. Austria has joined the ex isting entente between Great Britain, Russia and France. In high official cir cles here the undoubted expectation Is that a climax in the fate of the Turks will not long be delayed. The archbishop of Canterbury an nounces that a Pan-Angliclan will be con vened in Lambeth palace, the arch-Epis copal residence. In 1897. It is thirty years since the last conference of the kind was held. The Standard says that the conference will be invested with peculiar power, in view of the overtures the Vatican has made to England on questions that have not been stirred since the revolution of’ 1688. It Is ol' the'highest importance that the Church of England should demon strate to the world that Anglicanism Is a distinct, powerful and independent branch of the church Catholic, and that It is entitled to negotiate with Rome on a footing of perfect equality*. It will be particularly interesting. It adds, to hear what the bishops of the great trans Atlantic republic have to say and to lesm whether tfrey think any possible re union with Ryme would Le too dearly purchased. The conference ought to bring home to the people the fact that the Anglican Is the mother church of a great Catholic communion that is spread over the world. The bishop of London, preaching yes terday at St. Paul's, declared that any attempt to effect a reunion with Rome or the dissenters would rend the English church In twain. Today's dispatches from Constantino ple concur In the assertion that the Sul tan is keenly alive to the dangers me nacing his personal safety, and that he is ready to resort to the severest measures as soon as his enemies afford him a pre text for action. What elements of organization exist among the Moslem reformers or whether they are sufficient to enable them mak ing a concerted movement against the palace remains unknown. The advices received here refer vaguely to the old and young Turkish parties, but so completely fail to indicate how these parties are constituted as to leave the Impression that nothing worthy of the name of a real party can be found In Turkey. The strongest clique opposed to the palace Is said to be desirous of replacing the Sul tan by his youngest brother. Prince Suleiman Effindi, who was born January 12, 1861, passing over Mohammed Effendi, his second brother, who is the heir ap parent to the throne. It is contended that the exclusive harem education that the latter has been given has unfitted him to cope with the desperate fortunes of the empire. Native capitalists, who are most likely to know what Is passing, are selling everything that they possess In the em pire. Some of them are even clearing oast with their households for Egypt. The Greek ring In Constantinople view the approaching storm with alarm, and are sending their families to Athens so that they will be In a place of safety when the Storm clouds burst. The Rt Hon. George J. Goschen. first lord of the admiralty, had a conference with Prime Minister Salisbury yester day in relation to the retention of the British fleet at the Island of Lemnos, which Is within convenient striking dis tance of the Turkish QapltaJ. Both Lord Salisbury and Mr. Goschen will leave London today, but their absence will ex tend only over Sunday. The situation Is such that Lord Salisbury Is not'allowed a day’s respite. Since Wednesday he has been obliged to accord interviews with the Russian, French, Austrian and Turkish ambassadors and the Chinese and other ministers. Since Mr. Gosohen's return from the continent orders have been sent to Gibralter to expedite the construction of the new docks .there for .the use of the British Mediterranean squadron. Whether or not Gibralter is of the first stragettc importance, the government treats it as a great naval basils for the future struggle for supremacy In tlje Mediterranean. Two thousand men have been working on the new dock, and this number will be inoreased under the Instructions that have been sent to those who have charge of the works.

Two Entrances! :?$&hsZ£. THE TAYLOR FAMILY. Novel Sketch of the Famous Brothers, Bob and Alf, Sons of the Mountains. The Taylor family of Tennessee pre sent some of the most remarkable fea tures In their family history and political and personal achievements. The broth ers. Ex-Governor Bob and Ex-Congress man Alf, are now touring the country In an original and novel collaboration, enti tled "Yankee Doodle and Dixie,” which the newspapers praise as about the most ( entertaining and amusing thing on the boards (or on the earth, as to that mat ter). They are Tennessee mountaineers and descendants of a royal race of rheto ricians and Intellectual giants, and It seems that the young men have added luster to a name already famed. Hev. N. G. Taylor, their father, was a minister of great repute, a Prlncetonlan, and their mother was a sister of London C. Haynes, Confederate senator. These two men were the most Impassioned orators of their day, great leaders of men. N. G. Tayloi* was once in congress (whig), was commissioner of Indian af fairs In President Johnson’s cabinet, pres idential elector and nominee for governor. Bob Taylor was once In congress, twice governor and twice elector at large. Alf Taylor was thrice in congress, twice republican elector and once nominee for governor. The remarkable feature of It. and it is unparalleled in American history. Is that all three of these men represented the same district In congress, each in turn (the district represented twelve years by Andrew Jackson), eadh of different poli tics. Bob Taylor overcame a republican majority of E600. All three were nominated for governor in 1686 by their respective parties, the old gentleman being then a prohibition ist. He declined to antagonize his son*, but Bob and Alf accepted and locked horns In a race, said to have been the most brilliantly conteeted In the history of the oountry. They had the whole male population up marching and shout ing with brass bands, bonfires and bunt ing. cavalcading from county to county by the thousands. Bob Taylor, It is conceded, will be nominated for governor again next year, and possibly also Alf. The young men combine the arts and talents In their moat exquisite perfec tin'** of the orator, statesman and actor. and they are gentlemen ot rare refine ment and the most magnetic attractive ness. Boh would have been as great as Booth or Jo Jefferson or Brlgnoll In either role. Each of thtm combines a versatili ty of talent that Is rarely found united In such brilliant perfection In one in dividual. A If Taylor is a violinist with most ex quisite touch. Bob has a great rich voice which he delights to exploit In song. James Whitcomb Riley, the-HoosIer poet, visited them at their homes In the moun tains recently and was so captivated by them that his muse wrought Itself Into such a mood that It perpetrated the fol lowing beautiful lines, which he in scribed on the fly-leaf of a volume of his poems and presented to Alf: "That’s how this here old fiddle’s won my heart's endurin' love! From the strings acrost her middle, to the screechln’ Keys above. From her 'apron,' over 'bridge' and to the ribbon round her throat. She’s a wooln’, cooln’ pigeon, singln' 'love me’ every note.” It is not remarkable that such men draw people to see them and hear them wherever they go. Trunks—See our line before you buy.
