Mayor’s Recommendations.

etc., be removed from saloon doors Sat
urday nights at 12 o’clock so as to offer
a clear and unobstructed view of the
interior to passersby in front in order
to restrict the sale of intoxicants on Sun
That tenants, ogent3 and owners of
premises be required to clean flues twice
a year.
That early in the year 1S96 the street
committee open up all streets and alleys
accessable to the public, which are now
closed by private inclosures.
None of the recommendations received
final action.
The mayor stated that President Jem
ison of the Birmingham Railway and
Electric company requested a hearing
by I he board before the board should
take definite action in regard to enforc
ing the operation of the Behring street
car line. Mr. Jemison was granted a
hearing, and said that the line had not
paid the expenses of the driver for the
past five years. He recognized that the
mule system was not satisfactory to
the road's patrons, and he asked the in
dulgence of the hoard until the company
can equip the line with electricity. He
requested moderate action on the part of
the board, and pointed out that discour
agement to capital already employed
here will keep away other capital. When
asked by Alderman Kelly how long it
would be before the electric system
would be applied to the road Mr. Jemison
replied that the company would do so
as soon as the company can dispose of
bonds they are trying to sell. He thought
the road would be operated within a
year. Alderman Enslen asked if the com
pany would lease the road. Mr. Jemison
said yes; that the company had here
tofore offered cars and the track free to
any one who wanted to operate the line.
Mr. Jemison sa.ld (hat he would make
a recommendation to the directors with
the same offer to any responsible party
who will operate it. A resolution pre
vailed that the city attorney be Instruct
ed to stay proceedings tending to enforce
the opeation of the road.
Mr. Dorn's attorney requested that
the case against Dorn, which was ap
pealed by ttie defendant to the city court,
be dismissed at the cost of the defendant.
Keferred to the judiciary committee
wilh power to act.
Attorney McMaster offered a petition
requesting a release of attorney’s license
by reason of an existing contract be
tween himself and the mayor and aider
men of the previous administration In
regard to the matter. Referred.
The petition of the citizens of Fifteenth
street and Avenue G requesting a market
was referred to the market committee,
the. mayor added, with power to act.
The mayor exhorted the members of
the various committees to act promptly
on matters coming before them.

To Retrench.
The following report and recommenda
Hlons were submitted by the finance com
To the Mayor and Aldermen:
The finance committee regrets to re
port that notwithstanding the recent ex
tension received from the bondholders,
the expenses of the city still continue to
ibe larger than its income. It now ap
pears that arter having extended about
$48,000 of interest, due on bonds, there
.■Will still remain a deficit of about $25,000
making a total deficit for the year 1895
of $73,000.
Your committee begs to state tnar it
(will be absolutely necessary to practice
the moat rigid economy for the next
twelve months In all branches of the city
government. All ornamental appendages
must be done away with. Without rigid
economy the city will be unable to main
tain Its fire department, sanitation, po
lice. schools, etc., all of which are of
vital importance to its citizens. Your
committee further reports that while the
board of mayor and aldermen have con
trol of the Income of the city, that owing
to the action of the last legislature they
have very little control over expendi
tures. While we control the expenses
connected with the fiie department and
the cemetery, the police department
and the schools are entirely outside of
our authority. In answer to our request
the board of education has several times
reduced their expenses. The schools are
now being conducted at the lowest cost
possible; In fact, lower than at any time
In the. history of Birmingham.
Your committee recommends that a
Special committee be appointed to inves
tigate all the expenses of the city of Bir
mingham and report to this board what
deduction, if any. can be made. We rec
ommend further that said committee also
be directed to call on the police, commis
sion and explain to them the financial
condition of the city, and also request
them to reduce the expenses of the po
lice department in the same proportion
that reductions have been anade in the
fire department and the schools.

Baltimore, Nov. 20.—At noon today
Ferdinand C. I.atrobe, seven times may
or of Baltimore, became a private citi
zen. and Alcaeus Hooper, the first man
ever elected mayor of Baltimore on a
straight republican ticket, took np the
reigns ol office. The inauguration cer
emonies today were in striking contrast
with those of recent years. General I,a
trobe had been mayor so often that his
inauguration attracted no particular at
tention. All was changed today and Mr.
Hooper was inducted into the office in
the presence of a multitude. After the
new mayor had taken the oath of office
and made his inaugural address the of
ficial reception began and continued for
some hours. Thousands of persons, the
majority of whom were happy republi
cans, shook the new mayor's hand and
congratulated him upon the reform ideas
outlined in his inaugural address.

A Very Bad Beginning lor a Young Married
Philadelphia, Nov. 20.—There is no
clue to the whereabouts of Daniel H.
Brenizer, secretary of the Citizens’ Trust
and Security company, whose disappear
ance, after having embezzled $25,000 of
trust securities, was announced today.
Of the amount misappropriated the of
ficers of the Trust company expect to
recover $15,000, thus leaving an actual
loss of $10,000. The absconding secretary
and treasurer has been connected with
the Citizens’ Trust and Security compa
ny since Its organization six years ago,
he having first been appointed paying
teller. Later he was increased in salary
and still later promoted to the position of
secretary and treasurer at a salary of
$18,000 per annum. During his connec
tion with the company Brenizer was con
sidered by his superior to be possessed
of every virtue, and his judgment was
frequently consulted In the matter of In
vestments. About a month ago^he was
married. He announced that out of his
salary he had saved sufficient to pur
chase and furnish a residence In Ger
mantown, a suburb of Philadelphia, but
it is now believed that a portion of his
stealings were thus applied.
Brenizer left the company’s office last
Thursday and since then nothing has
been heard of him. Speculation in stocks
Is given as the cause for the peculations.
He Is said to have recently lost $10,000 In
one deal. The stealing is supposed te
have been begun over two months ago.

Cod-liver oil suggests
consumption, which is al
most unfortunate.
Its best use is before you
fear consumption; when
you begin to get thin, weak,
run down ; then is the pru

care, and the best way to
take care is to supply the
system with needed fat and
strength. Scott’s Emulsion

plumpness to those who

strength where raw cod

Too many women are wasting time
and strength over a wash-board ; rub
aing their clothes to pieces ; wasting their
money. You’d be astonished if you could
igure up the actual money saving in a
year by the use of Pearline. Millions
of women are using it now, but just
suppose that all women were equally
careful and thrifty, and that every
one used Pearline! It’s too much
to hope for—but the whole country
would be the richer for it.
