BLACK SMOKE STILL RISES The Bar Mill Has Been Temporarily Closed and the Men Transferred to Other De partments. The newspapers and financial journals of the north and east for the past week have been publishing statements to the effect that the rolling mills of this point had shut down and that the bottom had dropped out of the Iron business in Bir mingham. In view of a reviving market and rising prices that has been construed by the journals mentioned as evidence that Birmingham can no longer success fully make iron. This has brought joy to the hearts of iron magnates;north of the Ohio river and they have seized upon the opportunity thus presented to decry Birmingham and to advertise to ,the world that she cannot compete with them in making iron. But the black volumes of smoke ascend ing hourly from the immense stacks of Birmingham’s rolling mills day after day belles their statement. Birmingham can and is making iron today so successfully and so cheaply that her product finds a market in the very heart of the iron sec tions of the north. The only fact upon which such reports could have been based was the rumor of a possible closing down at the Birming ham Rolling mill a week ago. As stated in the State Herald at the time, certain requirements were made of the men which they refused to accept and follow ing that came the report that that mill ard the Alabama mill at Gate City would close in order to regulate the market, an agreement to that effect, according to General Manager Ward’s letter to the State Herald at the time, having been en tered into between the mills north and south. As a matter of fact, neither mill has stopped running, but on the contrary both are running on full time, according to information obtained by a State Her ald reporter yesterday from a gentleman who investigated the matter. The facts as he stated them to the reporter are that the bar mill department of the Birming ham Rolling mill has been temporarily, shut down and the men transferred to other departments. The reason for this Is that when iron began to advance a few months ago wholesale dealers bought large supplies at prices ranging below $1 per ton. Now the price is $1.60 at the mills. By reason of their purchases dur ing the spring and summer the whole salers are enabled to undersell the mills in this particular line, hence the opera tors decided to quit making bar iron un til the stocks of the wholesalers shall have been exhausted. The rolling mills of Birmingham are using just as much Iron and just as much coal today as they did two weeks ago, land the Gate City mill Is operating every department and the Birmingham Rolling mill every one with the exception of the bar iron department, as above set out. The trouble between the mill operators and the employes was settled in a man ner satisfactory to all concerned, accord ing to Information furnished a State Her ald reporter, and the anticipated shut down did not occur. Another fact that will probably bring dismay to the hearts of those who would rejoice to see Birmingham as an iron pro ducer removed, is the blowing in of two idle furnaces In the district within the past ten days. The latter part of last week the Tennessee Coal, Iron and Rail road company’s furnace at Oxmoor, whloh had been idle for two yeai’B, was again lighted and is now turning out a high grade of iron. Last Wednesday furnace No. 1 of the same company, at Bessemer, was put in operation. Both of these furnaces have been repaired and modernized In the past few months. Still another furnace that has been Idle over two years will be put In operation early next year, a deal looking to that end being almost consummated. Taking It all In all the iron manufac turers of this district are not at all dis turbed over the outlook for the future of this district. In a conversation with a State Herald reporter last night President Baxter of the Tennessee Coal, Iron and Railroad company informed the reporter that he had received three letters from New York during the day calling his attention to the published reports and requesting information. Mr. T. H. Aldrich said he had received similar inquiries. Both of these gentlemen replied that there was no truth in the reports and that all the rolling mills of the district were running on full time. The starting of No. 1 furnace at Besse mer makes nineteen now in operation In the district._ Hot lunches served at the chrysanthemum show day and evening^__ Fresh bread and candy made daily at C. W.

Quite a large congregation attended the First Baptist church last night, not withstanding the threatening condition of the weather. Dr. Gray announced that services will be held today in the church at 11 o'clock a. m. and a candle sermon for children at 3:30 o'clock p. m. This will conclude the day services of the revival, and Ur. White returns to his home after preach ing tonight, though the revival will con tinue until Sunday. Candidates for baptism are requested to be ready for the baptism Sunday. Sunday afternoon Mr. Jacobs will de liver an address to men at the Young Men’s Christian association rooms. Mr. Jacobs has done considerable Young Men s Christian association work for a number of years in Missouri and Illinois. All who can avail themslves of the oppor tunity will be benefited by hearing his address. The text used by Dr. White last night was from the 12th chapter of Exodus, "When I see the blood 1 will pass over you.” “That was a critical hour with the Isra elites. We can Imagine with what care and forethought they selected the lamb from the flock and how carefully the blood was sprinkled on the lintel and door post, and after these divine precautions had been observed by the faithful with what a feeling of security the Jewish household went to r#st. The Lord will see the blood and our first born shall live as the divine promise says. How gladly We ought to run to do the bidding of God. The blood of the lamb is of divine choice. Away back yonder in the first creation of the animate world, when the woman was tempted of the serpent, there was a council held in Heaven. The lamb was selected to save fallen man. The details were arranged by God. According to God’s word the lamb's blood is man’s only hope of salvation. Weeping will not save you; reading the Bible will not save you, nor will the Holy Ghost save you, unless you have the blood of the Lamb. Look at him crucified on the cross—the Lamb of God who died for our sins. Blessed be the Lord Jesus Christ. It is through the blood, my friends, that we have redemption for our sins. Without His blood you will die and with it you will live. During the Napoleonic wars It is narra ted that a conscript sent a substitute to the wars. The substitute was killed in battle. Months afterward the conscript officers again drafted the man. He de clined to recognize the summons. Said he, "I am dead.” "Dead!” said they; "how is that?” "My substitute under my name was killed In battle on a certain date. Search the war records and you will see that I am right.” The records substan tiated the man's statement and he could not be compelled to go to the wars. O, my friends, 1900 years ago my substitute and your substitute died on Calvary. It was a noble and a divine death. Let us accept the God given opportunity that was then made for us by the blood of the lamb.” The sermon was Interesting through out and the congregation listened atten tively to all that the eloquent divine said in exposition of his text.

Livingston, Nov. 14.—(Special.)—About 300 or more people assembled in the court house here today to listen to Senators Morgan and Pugh. Thursday being one of the busiest days of the week, there was not so large a crowd as w'ould have greeted them earlier In the week. About fifty young ladles from the normal col lege were present and paid close attention to the speeches of both gentlemen. Sen ator Pugh spoke first and made a telling argument in favor of free silver, using many Illustrations to show the audience how necessary free silver was for the good of the people. His arguments were so plain as to be understood by any child of ordinary Intelligence. Senator Pugh was applauded roundly after speaking two hours, then giving away to Senator Morgan, whose appearance brought cheers from the audience. He made a brilliant plea for silver and won several converts from the gold standard. The meeting lasted from 11 a. m. to <3 p. m., and no one seemed to tire of hearing them talk. Senator Pugh left for Demopolls tonight. Senator Morgan remains here and will visit his plantation tomorrow. Chrysanthemum show 13th, 14th and 15th next to May & Thomas. u-io-st CALLED TO TUSKAL00SA.
