MEETING POSTPONED. _ Special Me:ting of the Council Called for Last Night to Consider the Behrens Park Car Line Postponed. Owing to the fact that a quorum was not present last night,the special meeting of the city council was postponed until Monday evening at 7:30 o’clock. The bus iness that will be brought before the board is the consideration of the Behren’s Park street car line. In this regard it will be remembered that citizens living along the line have heretofore requested the board to enforce the operation of the road. The Birmingham Railway and Electric company, who own the charter for the street car line, say the road with its present equipment does not pay opera ting expenses. It was also suggested by President Jemison that the company i would tender the free use of the road to any one desiring to operate it in its pres ent condition, and in the event that ar rangements of that kind could not be made Mr. Jemison intimated that It was the intention of the company to equip the line with electricity at an early date. Many people want what many others want to get rid of. Brief mention in the State Herald’s “Cheap Columns” will fill the bill. “Situations Wanted” three times free.

CECILIA EPPINGHOUSEN BAILEY'S Grand Concert—The Club’s Third Entertain ment at Seals Bros.' Hall December 10. The Birmingham Music club’s third en tertainment will be given at Seals Bros.’ hall Tuesday evening, December 10. Mme. Cecilia Eppinghousen Bailey’s grand con cert company will be the attraction. The following is from the Press-Transcript, Lexington, Ky.: Mme. Cecilia Eppinghousen Bailey cap tivated her audience swiftly and com pletely. She is one of the rare number of women who have been blessed by a par tial fate with beauty, grace, charm, intel lect and voice. Not only is her voice one of pCMtHar quality, possessing beauty and an exquisitely sympathetic power, but also her dramatic talent is remarka ble; it is evidently innate, and has been brought by study and training to a re sistless point of excellence. The first effect of her appearance upon nn audience must always be one of great feminine beauty. Each number she sang was greeted at its close with a storm of applause that called the fair singer back without time for rest between. The "Angels' Serenade" was very love ly with both piano and violincello accom paniment. The former was beautifully played by Miss Dolly Williams. As during the exposition. Mme. Bailey charmed and delighted her audience with loveliness of face and voice, and charm and grace of manner. As Marguerite she captured all hearts, ns her talent was best and most fully manifested in the beautiful and graceful Jewel song from "Faust.” She is the most delightful attraction that has ever yet appeared on our Chautauqua pro gra mme. The Chicago 400 says: Miss Bertha Ep pinghnusen. who made a pronounced hit as Poleska in "A Russian Honeymoon,” is talented and beautiful. Neither Lily Langtry nor Mrs. James Brown Potter ever equaled her ravishing beauty and stage chic in their halcyon days. 12-5-4t _ General freight and passen ger office of Southern Railway removed to No. 7 North 20th street.

THE SCHUBERT CONCERT COMPANY f Admirably Render an Excellent Programme at Seals’ Hall. ! One of the best concerts heard In Bir mingham in a long time was that fyil Seals' hall last night by the Schubert' Concert company. . They were greeted by a small house, but the smallness in numbers was made up in enthusiasm, each number on the" programme elleitlnjt the heartiest applause and the artisn|» rendering them being encored In some instances two and three ttmes. MIsh Hughes, tfle Harpist, was enthu siastically encored 'after each number, and her appearance on the stage each time was the signal for hearty applause. She has magnificent control of the harp, which she plays'most admirably. The quartette, composed of Messrs. Samuel T. Battle, first tenor; Frank T. Johnson, second tendr.;, George R. Wade, baritone, and Frank C. Hollister, basso, rendered several beautiful selections. They all have splendid voices, under good control and sang most delightfully. It Is safe to say that should this excel lent company give another concert here they would draw a much larger audience. HISTORY. Cullman. Dec.«6. To the State Herald:' John Gottereid Cullman was bom at Frankwieler Rhine* Bavaria, July 2, 1823, He taught school at Rhine for awhile, but having something in his bosom broader than school teaching he came to America in 1865, settled in New York state, but remained there a short while only. Thence he went to Philadelphia for a short time and then to Cincinnati, where he remained three or four years. Next for about three or four years he traveled over the United States, and vis ited the different German colonies in America witii a view of establishing a colony in Alabama, and in 1871 arrived at Florence, where he met the Hon. R. M. Patton (ex-governor), who, taking an interest in Mr. Cullman and his enter prise, furnished horses and men to ex plore the country which led to the es tablishment of the German colony. Col onel Cullman remained in Florence about one year, when he went to Tuscumbia and there remained about twelve months. Having met, in December, 1872. Mr. Albert Fink of the Louisville and Nashville railroad and with him trav eled over the Louisville and Nashville railroad, and having succeeded, through Mr. Fink, in closing a contract with the railroad company for about 349,000 acres of land, an arrangement was made by which Colonel Cullman should pay all expenses of advertising and those inci dent to the bringing to America desired immigration for this particular territory. In 1873 Colonel Cullman located where now stands the city of Cullman, at the start a small colony of fourteen German families, and proceeded to lay out the town which thenceforth had an exist ence. Colonel Cullman has done more since he came to Alabama towards build ing up and advancing the interests of Ala bama and the south than any other twenty men in the state. He has brought into the state and located a very large number of desirable people, and all under his personal supervision. His son Otto came to America in 1878, and was of con siderable service to his father in the management of the Cullman Land com pany, but unfortunately Otto died in 1 flfii of fhn firm nf 9C A r» olrlaat* ann ThPfl dore, was also of good service to his fa ther, and he, too, died at the age of 26 years, in 1878 Colonel Cullman entered Into additional contracts with the Louis ville and Nashville Railroad company whereby he came Into possession of 500, 000 acres of land lying along the rail road between Decatur and Montgomery, and to the sale and settlement of these lands he gave his special attention. In 1886 Colonel Cullman made a trip to Eu rope in the interest of immigration and returned in the fall of the same year to find the north Alabama boom at its high est tide. Seeing his opportunity, In Feb ruary, 1888, he organized the North Ala bama Land and Immigration com pany with a capital of $2,000, 000, and the company at one time owned 160,000 acres of land and 1000 town lots In Cullman. In 1876 he founded Gor don City. He also located Immigrants in all the settlements along the railroad and at other places in the state. He was in vited by Governor Houston to formulate a plan of immigration. This he did, and the plan, though adopted by the state senate, was defeated In the house. Colo nel Cullman carries with him to the grave a large scar on his forehead that was made by the hand of an assassin. In 1874 some rough characters, thinking that the building up of the town in their midst might operate in time to interfere with their vile practices, decided to put a stop to its growth by removing its founder. The villain attacked Colonel Cullman with a huge knife, plunging it twice In his forehead, destroying a large portion of the skull and exposing the •brain. The villain made his escape, but It’ls gratifying td know that he elided his life at the end of a rope in Macon, Ga., for horse stealing. The colonel was a member of the Evan gelican Protestant church and a mem ber of the Masonic order. The colonel was even before coming to America a democrat, and while he has been solic ited on many occasions to become a can didate he would never allow his name to be used in connection with any office, but was n man of large influence and one of the hardest workers during a cam cafgn. He was an active, energetic, wide-awake and progressive citizen, in full sympathy with Alabama and its people. He was a supporter of all legit imate enterprises, schools, churches (and charitable Institutions, and has done more than any other man of foreign birth in the slate to build up Its material in terest. He was always open-handed to the poor, had a comforting word for the bereaved and was a liberal giver to the distressed. We well remember the twenty-third anniversary of our town last. June in honor of Colonel Cullman, when the town was lavishly decorated and when every business and society in the city was rep resented in the long procession. We re member the review from the beautiful residence of our founder, the exercises in the park and eulogies by the mayor, Mr. Lane and others. It was timely, for he saw what, he had done for our beloved town and county In twenty-three years of persistent energy. Thousands of peo ple were here on that day and he was phased. Today every business house in town is closed, the city is draped in mourning, and thousands of people do him their last honor. The parade to the cemetery was over one mile long and all had a sad face The city of Cullman mourns, the county mourns and the state mourns the loss of Colonel Cullman. He started out with a slow team, The road was rough; By the sturdy treftdjdf time The surfaee heeame smooth. He speeded firm steed Up to the pearly gates Arid entered the golden streets. W. PURSE GRABBERS. They Attacked a Lady Wednesday Night, But Bravery Was Too Much for Them, A sneak thief grabbed a purse from Mrs. Lineker's hand Wednesday evening, about 8 o'clock, on Sixth avenue and Nineteenth street. The lady was going home after her day's work at Loveman, Joseph & Loeb's, where she Is employed as head dressmaker. Just as she was passing a negro on Sixth avenue the Jascal snatched the purse and ran away. l short time afterwards Mrs. Lineker |-e urned the same way and saw three negroes standing near the corner. She heard one of the negroes ask of the other two .who had taken it. Mrs. Lineker stopped and started to avoid the negroes by crossing the street. They saw her movement and tried to intercept her, but she faced them boldly and ordered them off. which they made haste to do as fast as their legs could carry them.
