And More Trade for the Great
Northwest.
OUR LEADING CITIZENS
Express Themselves as Heartily in Accord With
the Great Movement to a State
Herald Reporter.
As predicted exclusively by the State
Herald, the location of the general offices
of the Bcnithern and Northwestern In
dustrial association in Birmingham has
resulted in developing a popular interest
In this great work. Persistently has the
State Herald urged t'he Importance of the
northwestern and southern reciprocal
trade movement, and the evidence of the
appreciation of the business Interests of
this city is now before us.
The Southern and Northwestern In
dustrial association, following the sug
gestion of the State Herald, asked an
expression of opinion from leading cit
izens. We give the views of a number of
our leading citizens as expressed In let
ters addressed to the association and
gathered by a reporter of the State Her
ald.
Mayor VanHoose—-There can be but
one opinion touching this movement, it
is a most excellent work and should meet
With the unanimous endorsement of the
Southern people. Birmingham Is vitally
interested In closer relations between
the south and northwest. We expect a
large delegation from Chicago to visit
Hlcmlngham, and have made ample ar
rangements to entertain them. The asso
ciation organized for this work should
Imeet with great encouragement.
Mr. O. C. Chaltfoux of J. L. Chalifoux
'& Co.—The great need of the south is an
increase in her producing population.
She needs workers to develop her mineral
resources, increase and vary her agri
cultural products. Naturally, these must
come from the northwestern states, and
iwe look with favor on any movement
that tends to bring about such social and
business relations with those states as
(will induce Immigrants to settle here
hnd capitalists to Invest in manufactur
ing enterprises. We predict great suc
cess to your association and a greater
gcod to our state.
Capt. Joseph P. Johnston—I think the
eouth and the west both have much to
gain by closer relation. Our interests
run on closer lines and we are less bound
fby ancient prejudices. For generations
She south and west have bien subservient
to the oast In tinanoinl and commercial
affairs. We are now strong enough by
ptanding together to become Independent.
[We are large consumers of western pro
ducts and manufactures, and the west
takes $2 of our products where the east
takes $1. Three-fourths of our Iron
goes to the west. With these conditions
existing, why we should continue to deal
With each other and let the eastern man
take toll from both does not seem to be
■very sensible. The east represents in
vested capital. The west and south rep
resent new American energy and enter
■prlsf and progress, and not subserviency
to foreign influences.
1 Mr. T. H. Aldrich—The center of com
merce Is gradually drifting to the north
west. The south and northwest should
[be closer In touch on commercial and In-,
idustrlal lines. An evidence of my feeling
[in this matter is found In the fact that I
have sent my son to Chicago to start In
business.
Ben M. jacoos—our principal
Is with the northwest. We buy largely
an Chicago and look to an extension or
lour business with that olty and tributary
territory. The movement Is a good one
Ifor both sections.
Steiner Bros.—We are heartily In ac
jcord and sympathy with the purposes and
efforts of your organization and believe
(that stronger commercial ties between
Ithe northwest and south should be effeot
fed. The east has had the benefit of south
rn enterprise and has enjoyed the fruits
IS! the labors of this section to a large ex
ent without a full reciprocal appreeia
lon. Vast sums of money withdrawn
.rom here In the way of both life and fire
nsurance and Interest and dividends do
ot find their way back as they should,
lew York has been milking the south
nd we believe that closer reciprocal,
nanolal and commercial relations with
ltles like Chicago and St. Louis would
suit In greater benefits and advantages
utually. St, Louis and Chicago are fast
eoomlng very wealthy cities, whose In
estors have exhausted the field of the
orthwest and must seek Investment In
his territory. In which they have not in
vested heretofore. Besides, the modes of
wmslness In New York have become so
English and foreign in their customs as
jare yet unknown to Chicago and St. Lou
is, and business relations with them
jwould be more agreeable and not as stiff
fend haughty as they are with a large pro
portion of the people of New York, Bos
ton and Philadelphia.
, J. H. McOary—I find Chicago the best
narket for consignments of produce. We
row have large quantities of goods and
' >ther produce In cold storage In Chicago,
j iVe have quit shipping to eastern points,
* Is returns from Chicago are more satis
factory. The movement Is a good .one
and I believe to the best Interests of both
Sections.
. Col. J. H. Bankhead—I have not looked
Into the question of commercial relations
{between the two sections, but the move
brat Impresses me as a good one. Cer

NflBERS.
people have a common Interest In the af
fairs of this country and should be
brought in closer touch.
George L,. Morris—I think it a good
movement. The south and the northwest
should be brought closer together.
Robert Jemison—I favor any effort
looking to the development of reciprocal
relations between the south and the
northwest. Chicago is a great city, and
in many lines the merchants and manu
facturers of the northwest are entitled
to a liberal share of southern trade. We
have a rich country, and I look for a
great, tide of immigration from the north
west and other sections as well as in
vestment of new capital in southern ter
ritory.
William Walker—A. most excellent
movement, which I heartily indorse. It
should be encouraged, and I think we
have much to gain on this line.
Capt. Frank P. O’Brien—I have for
some time appreciated the Importanee of
this movement. The southern and
northwestern people have many interests
In eotnmon and on commercial and in
dustrial lines they should act together.
Claud Seals of Reals Bros.—We do most
of our business in Chicago. A great deal
of southern trade should go there, and
we have much to gain by getting in closer
touch with the northwest.
Joe Frank—We do a large business
with the northwest, and expect more ex
tensive business relations. This is a
movement lam glad to see Inaugurated.
I am sorry it was not started long ago.
It should be given encouragement.
Capt. J. Morgan Smith—I am heartily
In favor of closer relations between Bir
mingham and Chicago. We want to sell
the northwest our Iron and lumber, and
we should buy many articles from them.
Our company does a large and satisfac
tory business with the northwest. I be
lieve Chicago Is destined to be the largest
city in the t’nitad States.
.1. B. Cobbs, president Berney National
bank—The commercial interests of the
south are more identical with the west
than with the east. We expect Immigra
tion from the west, and there Is no rea
son why we should not seoure a liberal
line of investments from the northwest
in the south. I approve the movement,
and I believe that the two sections
should be brought nearpr together in
social, commercial and financial rela
tions.
Macltn W. SIoss—Birmingham is the
Chicago of the south. We can make pig
iron here for $6 per ton, which is $2.50 less
than the cost of production in Kngland.
Chicago people are learning of our nat
ural advantages, and I am glad to see the
reciprocal feeling that is being manifest
ed. Birmingham will soon have a popu
lation of 100,000 people, and we will have
twenty-five new furnaces here within the
next few years. Within twenty-five miles
of this city we have a vein of coal 12 feet
and 10 inches without any parting, which
is equal in analysis to the celebrated
Connellsville vein of Pennsylvania. In
working for our trade Chicago merchants
and manufacturers will learn of our re
sources and become Interested.
J. F. Rawl—I think well of the move
ment. We do a large business in Chicago,
and it will be to the advantage of Bir
mingham to cultivate closer relations
with the northwest. Think the movement
and the organization of a permanent as
sociation on that line most excellent.
Dr. F. D. Nabers—We buy most of our
goods in New York, because many goods
are imported and representatives of for
eign houses reside In New York. We buy
a few articles in Chicago, such as snap
and proprietary medicines. Think this
movement most desirable in every re
spect. We have much to gain by culti
vating closer relations and sustaining an
effort to operate on new lines and in new
territory.
F. Caheen—Our principal buying is
done in the east, but we buy some lines,
principally oloaks, in Chicago. Think well
of the movement, and a permanent or
ganization in this line is of great interest
to Birmingham.
W. H. Kettig—The Chicago people
handle their business better than eastern
people. New York has seen its best days
so far as southern trade is concerned. I
be.gan business here ten years ago, and at
that time all my business was with
the eastern cities. Now, practically all
of our business is with Chicago, where
larger stocks are carried and business Is
much more satisfactory. Today we for
warded an order by wire to a large Chi
cago house and received answer within
three-quarters of an hour. Such prompt
and Systematic dispatch of business
could not have been done with any east
ern city in our line. Chicago merchants
work longer and attend more closely to
business. It is more of an American city
and much better suited to the southern
trade. As the Chicago people get trade
from us they will know us better and be
more inclined to invest in our Industries
and aid in the development of our re
sources.
M. Weil—We do a little business in
Chicago. Think the movement a good
one, and we would just as soon buy in
the northwest as in the east. We have
been trading in New York because we
know the New York people, and they
have for years worked for our trade.
Freight rates should be less from Chi
cago, and more extensive business should
be established between Chicago and the
south.
Sinclair Bennie—The most of my trad
ing Is done in the eastern cities. All of
my glassware X buy In Pittsburg, which
is headquarters for this class of goods.
We do a great deal of trading, however,
in Chicago and Cincinnati. My trade in
Chicago is very favorable and trade with
Cincinnati increasing. I think great good
would come from closer relations between
the south and the northwest. Business
dealings with the northwestern cities is
quite as satisfactory as with the eastern
cities.
S. Brown—I think it is desirable to have
the northwest compete with the east. I
buy goods all over the country, principal
ly, however, from the east. I buy consid
erable goods in Chicago, Cincinnati and
Indianapolis.
A. B. Vandegrlft—T believe that closer
relationship between the northwest and
the south would result In good. I buy
most of my shoes from St Ixmls and
find them satisfactory. My business with
that city is increasing. We formerly
bought all our shoes from the east.
H H. Mayberry—We do an extensive
business with Chicago; in fact, buy alj
of our sash and doors there. We buy our
glass from the west. I suppose our bus
iness with the northwest amounts to $75,
000 a year, and it is Increasing very fast.
We trade a good deal from the east, buy
ing all of our hardware from that section.
1 think the better the people of the north
west and the south know each other the
more pleasant will be their relations.
J. B. Hopkins—I think a closer relation
between the northwest and the south
would result In much good. Having the
northwest to compete with the eastern
states for southern trade would be to our
mutual benefit. What we want is to be
able to buy our goods as cheap as possible,
but we naturally feel nearer to the people
of the northwest. We have territory for
immigrants from the northwest, and I
think we need this class of immigrants.
D. M. Drennen—I think tha movement
a most excellent one. Our business with
the merchants of the northwest has been
greater in the past few months than ever
before.
W. 3. Brown—We do some trading with
WED
lug- up our recent
lieit your vi&il. to
MORROW &
tho northwest, and wo»Id like to Increase
It. Think It would be beneficial to tlus-J
south to Increase Its trade with the nortlj-,51
west. I think competition Is always good
for trade.
George R. Smith—I think the movement
is a very desirable one for the south, W% •
have many advantages in an agriculture,'
way, and In this Immediate district wg'
have a great many advantages offered >
that the northwest does not possess. 14
think that the northwestern people and’
the southern people have a more friendly1
feeling toward each other than exists hew
tween the east and south. The northwest
and the south should go hand in hand
and make it advantageous to both sec
tions. I consider the movement a good
one for both parties. We trade a good
deal with St. Louis, Chicago, Milwaukee
and Oshkosh. We buy our valises and
trunks from Oshkosh, buy shoes in Chi
cago and St. Louis. Our trade is now be
ing sought to a larger extent by the
northwestern people than ever before.
They are catering to the southern trade.
P. Sid Jones—It Is a great movement
and meets my most emphatic indorse
ment. It is in the right direction, and
will surely accomplish a great deal of
good. I have just returned from the
northwest and great Interest is being
manifested in immigration to the south.
My mail is increasing dally on this line,
and T look for great developments.
J. W. Worthington—I most heartily in
dorse the movement. It Is In the right
direction, and the Chicago people should
be given a royal Welcome when they visit
Birmingham.
J. W. Sibley—I heartily approve of the
aims and purposes of the new association,
especially with regard to Inducing a bet
ter class of Immigrants to come to this
section. What the manufacturing indus
tries of the south need is a more skilled
and thrifty class of laborers.
C. A. Mountjoy—I certainly approve of
any plan which brings about a closer re
lation of two great sections of our com
mon country, such as the south and west.
The west represents much of the brain
and brawn of America: Its people are-the
pioneers of civilization, the builders of
cities and the developers of natural re
sources. She has the kind of'men we
want—the benefit of whose skill and en
ergy the south needs—and to whose ef
forts the south affords the amplest re
muneration. In their mutual struggle for
development the south snd the northwest
are inter-dependent for labor and prod
ucts. The south and east have long been;
allies. Nature and tradition made them
so. There is no reason, though, why
there should not be a triple alliance—the
great northwest, the third in such a un
ion.

Union Spring's. Nov. 2.—(Special.)—The
number of bales of cotton received up to
date is 9987. The warehouses are full, a
great many holding, hoping for the pre
dicted rise to 10 cents. The slump caught
several of our citizens, but we are glad
to say mostly those who are able to hold
and wait for better times.
There will be given on Thursday night
a most interesting and novel entertain
ment, which we are sure that our young
people will heartily enjoy and enter into.
It is to take the form of a Halloween
party, and who can tell how many desti

A great many of our people have visited
the exposition at Atlanta and report It a
splendid exhibit. Parties are being made
up for every week now, and before its
close a large percentage of our folks will
have taken it in.
The Southern Rifles held their regular
monthly meeting on last Thursday night
and had the requisite number of men in
line. They will soon be installed in their
, handsome new armory.
Our farmers have cause to feel in a
more serene frame of mind than for many
years. There has been a great crop of
corn made and peas and potatoes, ground
peas and sugar cane have yielded bounti
fully. Strange to say there has been a
very fair crop of turnips made, notwith
standing the long drouth. Syrup boiling
is In order now, and our young people
have been taking advantage of the beau
tiful weather by forming parties and vis
iting the syrup makers by the light of
the moon.
We are more than glad to report that
the long dry spell was broken and the
intolerable dust laid by a delightful
shower last night.

There la a probability of the steel mill
at Fort Payne being put in operation
within the next few weeks.
Air. E. N. Cullom of this city will be
connected with the new company that Is
to be formed to operate the mill. For
the past year he has been directly Inter
ested in Fort Payne property, and Is

The steel mill was built a few years
ago at a cost of over $250,000 and has a
dally capacity of fifty tons of merchant
able steel.
It Is said the freight rate at Fort Payne

done, and there Is a strong probability
It will be, It Is said the steel mill will be

WHERE TO SEND THE CORN.
Montgomery, Nov. X.—Being: desirous of
having: a better and more prolific kind of
corn cultivated in Alabama, as commis
sioner of agriculture I purchased a liberaX

double the value of the com, 1 hereby
notify all persons who received the corn
not to return it to the capital, but to de
liver it to the probate Judge of their dif
ferent counties.
The prohate judge in eacb county will
please receive said corn and redistribute
it Judiciously among those who will util

Jackson, Miss., Nov. 2.—Reports from
every county of this tate received at the
democratic headquarters the past few
days indicate that with possibly half a
dozen exceptions the democrats will car
ry the state, electing' their entire state
ticket, the legislature and the county offi
cers, from sheriff to constable, in seventy
of the seventy-seven counties. The popu
lies may possibly oarry half a dozen ooun
ties, but this is extremely doubtful. The
doubtful counties are Attalla, Winston
and Neshoba, in the central part of the
state; Pike, Marlon, Green and Jones
counties, in southeastern Mississippi.
The popullt candidate for governor, Capt.
Frank Burkitt, is a fluent speaker and a
man of considerable ability. Ho and Mc
Laurin, the democratic candidate, have
held Joint discussions at various prom
inent places and the Indications at each
point were that a large majority of the
audiences were with McLaurin. It may
be set down as a certainty that not a sol
itary gold standard man will be elected In
the legislature.
