Now tiere is a pretty pot to boil. It seems from present imiications that there will be a lively tilt between the eity coun cil and the police commission. Members of the council say that the po lice commission is trying “to run" the city. A representative of the commis sion says that that body will govern it self and perform its legal functions irre spective of the board of mayor and al dermen, in the event that the “city dads" offer opposition to the commission's func tions and conceived duties. The present difference between the. two municipal bodies grew out of a requisi tion, it is reported, from the commission to the board of aldermen requesting 150 printed copies of the police regulations. Chairman J. P. Mudd of tlie police com mission, through whom the requisition was directed to the board, noted the fact in yesterday's State Herald that the tom mission's requisition had been referred to the police committee of the board. In other words, no immediate action had been taken on it.. Chairman Mudd at once directed a note of inquiry to Mayor VanHoose, which it Is believed was not answered. Mr. Mudd declined to be in terviewed on the subject, but it is said that unless the board allows an expendi ture for the printed regulations steps will be taken to mandamus the board. The costs, it is also said, acc ruing from mandamus proceedings must fail on the board of aldermen personally and not on the city treasury in the event that the mandamus is not successfully resisted. None of the aldermen or tlv commis sioners cared to be Interviewed on the subject yesterday. Mayor VanHoose said last night that he received Commissioner Mudd’s note too late to answer it yester day. In regard to the supposed strained relations between the board and the com missioners he said he thought there would be no trouble; that he had abiding faith In the sound business sense anti discretion of the council and commission ojid that he thought the whole matter would be adjusted today. At any rate the affair will come to a focus within the next few hours. Catarrh Indicates impure blood. To cure it take Hood’s Sarsaparilla, the great blood purifier. SOUTHERN RAILWAY.

The damage did not amount to more than $15 or $20. _ The Bogie man is coming. 10-26-lmo__ " THINGS DRAMATIC. A small, though seemingly well pleased house witnessed the production of "The White Squadron” at O'Brien’s last night. The play ts built on patriotic lines and deals with army and naval life with Just enough romance to smooth the rough edges. The assembling of the navies of the principal nations at Rio de Janeiro a few years ago is a feature of the play, out of which is woven an interesting story. Bandits terrorize the country and jeopardize the interests of other coun tries and it is for the suppression of these that the naval fleets are sent to Rio. The scenery used was designed especial ly for this play and is quite handsome and elaborate. The assembling of the squadrons, as seen in the third act, was splendid. The cast was selected with an eye to the fitness for the different parts and re flected credit on the management. Sousa’s Band. Sousa’s band will be at O'Brien’s to night and at matinee this afternoon. The programme as published in Wednes day’s State Herald Is elaborate. A rep resentative of Sousa speaking to a State Herald reporter said of this band: "You are going to hear the finest band concerts ever listened to in America, not excepting those here tofore given by Sousa himself. Bear in mind that his band Is on the road, giving concerts, ten months In the year; that he gave (including matinees), over 500 concerts last year, and will do the same this year without the break of a day, and that in consequence of this constant practice and playing his men have ar rived at absolute perfection in precision. WED ing- up our recent licit ^your visit to MORROW & execution and contrasting' effects of light ti nil shade. Besides, the hand Is composed of meh, each of whom iH a consummate artist, and each so thoroughly imbued with the spirit of his leader that the ensemble is, so to speak, an instrument played upon by all the varying moods of its great conductor, as responsively as a. piano by a Paderewski pr a I,lszt. The band has now fully achieved the end sought by Mr. Sousa and his manager in its organization. It is the equal of the band of the Garde Republtcaine of Paris, having the additional advantage of a le/tder who appreciates fully the tastes and wishes of the people, and res pects them. Every variety of music is represented on his programmes and in his encores, and no ma.n, whether an edu cated musician, or a representative of the outlying country districts, can go away from one of Sousa's concerts with out feeling satisfied and happy. He has heard what he liked. If his ear was at tuned to Wagner, Wagner he had. If he delighted in a plantation dance, or a popular air like ‘Sweet Marie/ in the course of the evening it came. If his sense of rhythm and his fondness for the rollicking heel-and-toe characteristics of the southern negro craved satisfaction, he had It. And f if he wished, through the soul-inspiring marches of Sousa, to be remindwl of martial glory, and he carried back to the days when he fought for his country, his longing was also realized. In these characteristics of h. great leader and a great musician, you have the secret of Sousa's unparalleled success. And when you again hear Sousa's band, you, will agree with me that I have stated the dear, cold facts, and under, rather than over-estimated, the characteristics of it matchless con ductor.” “The Lost Paradise.” It may be said, and without presump tion, in behalf of our play-goers that Wil liam Morris Is welcome to Birmingham, and although this is his first appearance as a star his splendid reputation has pre ceded him, and it Is fully expected that a large uudlenco will welcome him at O'Brien's opera house on Monday night, November 11. Mr. Morris will be seen in his original character of Reuben Warner, in "The Lost Paradise,” a part he has played over 1000 times. A brief outline of the story is as follows: Reuben Warner, a man of the people, has risen to the position of Iron works su perintendent. In rather an angelic man ner this youth has Invented a dynamo, which his benefactor and master appro priates, only to be robbed of It at hts sud den death by Andrew Knowlton, who succeeds him as master of the iron works. A diary left by the great man enlighten^ Wnrner’s mind as to the real owner of all the Knowlton works just at a time when he is scorned by the beautiful daughter of Andrew Knowlton. One tell tale leaf in the diary of Stanish plays a pretty and dramatic? part all through the piece. Even after the recorded suspicion is burned ashes rise to cloud the plot and clear away only in the last scene. There is n bubble of bright cbmedy all through' the sombre scenes, and the brief, compact dialogue drives along with a speed that never allows Interest to droop. The two scones used are veritable tri umphs, one of the draper's and decora tor's art. the other of the stage machine. The first and last acts take place in an exquisite reception room at Knowlton’s home. Elegance, luxury and taste appear reflected everywhere, from the mantel, loaded with choice bric-a-brac, to the leading lady's lovely dresses. The super intendent’s room at the works, with the steady music of buzzing wheels and steaming whistles through the walls, seem very like the real toiling mill. A door and long gallery shows the mighty wheels In ponderous labor—not one, but many, all sizes and in every mood of ad justment and motion. The strike, the lull of the busy machinery, thp hush and the brooding murmurs of a threatening mob of workmen make a stirring climax to a magnificent act. Trilby Up to Date. "Say, Mickey, wot’s Trilby?" "Hully gee! Trilby ain't nawthin’. Trilby's a rlame. Why don’t yer read, Jimmy ?” “Wei, den, who's Trilby?" “Oh, youse fellers make me tired. Youse don’t know nawthin'. I read de book at de doctor's. Trilby wuz a dame wot wuz bro’t up In de Fourt’ ward in Paris. Her old man wiiz a preacher, but got ter hittln’ de bottle too lively and her old lady slung gin in a joint. Dey got stuck on each otherjind hitched up, but de booze got de best of dem and dey croaked in Paris and left two kids. De girl wuz Trilby, but de boy kid don't cut no ice in de story. De girl wuz a dandy and some painter bloke got stuck on her shape and made a model of her to draw from. Den dey ail got a-paintin’ her and makln' chalk images of her left foot or somethin’ and so she met three English guys who wuz in Paris learnln* paintin'. There wuz a big bloke, bigger'n Corbett, and a Scoth mug and a little dude. Of course, Trilby’s old man bein’ English, she fell right In wld dts push, and soon she wuz mendin' detr socks and right to home wld dem. BImeby the big fellow got spooney, but youse kids can’t under stand dat part of it. Anny way, de little dude wuz de winner. Dat’s Just like de wlmmen. dey don’t know when dey got a, good ting. If she’d made a play fer de big guy I think he'd a flew de coop with her and den de story wouldn’t ha’ been rlt ten. But de kid wuz de winner, ez I sed, but she gave himde marble heart because she know'd she'd been slttln' round wid de painters wldout no close on and his folks mightn’t like It. So den a dago wat wuz a great music!ner got in wld de gang and, of course, got stuck on Trilby, too. He wasn’t no good except for playin’ the planer and wuz always pullin' some one's leg and wouldn’t give any one the glad hand who wruz fool enough to cough up. Well, any way, when the kid told her he’d skip if she didn’t morry him, she weakened and said all right. Den de kid’s ma came over from London and put de blinkers on de whole racket and made Trilby Are him, see? Den de dude took sick and de dame went on de bum for a while, when she met de dago and he mesmerized her, same as de bloke does guys up at Dorises’ museum last week, and hully gee! how she could sing when she wuz asleep—no, I mean when she wuz under his influence. Weil, in a few years she made a big hit all over Europe and come to London, and wot d’yer think? De night she wuz to make her ta boo—dat means her first appearance, see? —didn’t de dago drop dead In de box scar ed t' death of de big feller I wuz teiyn.’ yer about, wot wuz stuck on Trilby in Paris, who wuz in de theayter dat night. Gee! den dere wuz fun.1 She couldn't sing a little bit because de dago wuzn’t dere to mesmerize her. ana 6hfc got sick and de little dude got sick: but any way, dey both croaked. But youse couldn't tumble to dat part of de stoiy. But if could road and understand dere’s lots I couldn’t ell about dat would make yer leak even If yef wuz taft.

MONTEVALLO. "Who Said Montevallo Would Lose the In dustrial School P” Montevallo, Nov. 6.—(Special Corre spondence.)—Who said Montevallo will lose the Industrial school? That brilliant but erratic prophet had not formed the acquaintance of Montevallo's energetic citizens, or ho would know that when once they put shoulder to the wheel the wheel moves. Neither did the aforesaid prophet attend the impromptu meeting of citizens last night in the Methodist church, where a genuine love feast was held and $7000 In hard cash was raised in less time than It takes to tell of It. Montevallo surely deserves the school for the pluck she has exhibited. The smallest among the towns competing for the prize, she outbid them all, and she does not ask until the 1st of January to raise the $9000 required by the trustees, but will have'it all subscribed by the end of the present week. There will be another meeting of cit izens on Friday night, and on Saturday there will be a grand school rally, to which every man, woman and child In the district Is invited. No!
