AN OVATION Given Mr. Otto Pulse, the Contractor for Blountville’s New School Building. Blountsville, Dec. 6.—(Special.)—On Wednesday morning, December 4, the board of control for Blountsville State Behool met to receive from Mr. Pulse the keys to the school building, which had just been completed. The books and ac counts were investigated and it was found that there was a considerable sum still due Mr. Pulse on the work. The board, however, made satisfactory ar rangements with Mr. Pulse, and after having the building Insured the keys were turned over to the board. It was said that the proper thing to do In or der to show to Mr. Pulse our appreciation of his faithful performance of his work an ovation should be given him. Profess ors Blalock and Dewberry nrranged the programme and nt 7 p. m. the citizens of Blountsville assembled In the chapel of the new college. There was music and recitations by the students, after which speeches were made by Revs. Glassgow, Jones and llyars; also by Captain Fields, who made the opening address, and at Its rlose presented to Mr. Pulse a beautiful overcoat as a token of appreciation for his faithful work. Mr. Pulse replied In a short speech, which was cheered to the echo. The school opened this morning in the new building. The school has now In dally attendance between 225 and 250 pu pils. _ _ Ladies opening of the larg est jewelry store in the South, Monday, December 9.

The Birmingham Music club's third en tertainment will be given at Seals Bros.' hall Tuesday evening. December 10. Mme. Cecilia Epplnghousen Bailey’s grand con cert company will be the attraction. The following is from the Press-Transcript, Lexington, Ky.: Mme. Cecilia Epplnghousen 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 ope of peculiar 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 an 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 vloUncello 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, as 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 gramme. The Chicago 400 says; Miss Bertha Ep pinghousen. 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 Alabama Great Southern Railroad removed to No. 7 North 20th street.

The Advertiser's candidate for govern or has not yet materialized. But he will be forthcoming, we dare say. There Is time enough yet for all to get out a can didate apiece and have a ffooil, 'ljvely time of It, you know.—Randolph Leader, * * * Because He Favors Free Coinage. The Montgomery Advertiser labors to prove that the financial question should be ignored—have no place In the state campaign—and in the same Issue writes factional articles against Captain John ston's nomination for governor solely be cause he is in favor of free coinage. Oh, . onslRtency, etc.—Hamilton News-Press. m * m Hit Them With a Brick. Not only here In Alabama, but from democrats In Washington comes the cry, we must have harmony. It is, Indeed, the most essential element to democratic success both In the coming state and na tional elections. Let the man who op poses harmony and victory be shot In the mouth with a brickbat.—Randolph Leader. • • • Harmony Is the Watchword. Every true democrat should strive to cause peace and harmony to prevail In the party next year. As for the Sun. we will cheerfully support Captain Johnston or any other good democrat selected by the party in convention. We would pre fer that we have no factional fight. We do not believe the Advertiser's course a wise one for the party to pursue.—La Fayette Sun. • • • Will Make Their Preference Felt. It Is manifest that the Montgomery Ad vertiser will risk everything, suffer any thing, rather than have Johnston for governor. Happily the great masses of the democratic party not only do not have any such spirit, but they regard Johnston as preeminently fitted for gov ernor of Alabama, and they will make their oreference for him felt.—Hunts ville Argus. * • • Moving Quietly Along for Johnston. We have not much political talk for our readers this week, nor do we promise much In future. We have long believed that too much politics Is the bane of the country. The present session of con gress will very probably be a political session, devoted exclusively to president making Instead of business. We desire, to remark, however, that the people of Alabama seem to be moving along quiet ly getting ready to make Captain John ston governor next year, while the Mont gomery Advertiser, Mobile Register and other small fry of that persuasion are just tearing their hair of pure vexation. —Fort Payne Journal. Not Consistent. The single standard papers profess that they want harmony in the demo cratic ranks and use stieh quotations as “united we stand, divided we fail,” etc., and say that “democrats must stand to gether shoulder to shoulder under the leadership of our ablest statesmen and march over the breastworks of our op ponents to victory.” Now this is ail true and reads well, but in nearly every issue of these papers we find a bitter, factional opposition to the candidacy of Captain Jolinston for governor. Captain John ston is an able statesman, a pure demo crat. and has spent the best part of his manhood in battling for the democracy of Alabama, and if the newspapers are in earnest about harmony and desire the welfare of the party, let them cease theii* unreasonable opposition to Captain Johnston. Let their actions comport with their words upon the question of harmony.—Hamilton News-Press. • • • Why Fight Johnston? The Montgomery Advertiser and Mo bile Register, it seems to us, are wholly inconsistent in their factional opposition to the candidacy of Capt. Joseph P. John ston befort the democratic convention for the office of governor, unless they are determined to let their prejudices on the financial question outweigh their loyalty to the democratic party. Captain John ston's democracy has never been ques tioned. His friends have announced his name as a candidate for the nomination and he has given his assent and may be considered as having entered actively into the campaign. We have not heard of any other democrat who proposes to contest the nomination with him; still these journals oppose his nomination solely because he differs from them upon the silver question, and insist that they will see that a "sound money” candidate Is found to defeat him. If you are dem ocrats, gentlemen, why fight Captain Johnston, at least until some other <dem ocrat Indicates a willingness to contest the nomination with him?—Hamilton News-Press. « • • The Advertiser Desperate. We are sorry for the Advertiser. Some country papers, not having any opinion of their own,have been in the habit of fol lowing blindly the lead of the Advertiser. Of this Influence the Advertiser was proud. It was derived chiefly from Its central position at the capital of the state —the headquarters of political news. Ow ing to Increased facilities for obtaining information, the country papers are be ginning to think for themselves. Hence the Advertiser has Inst much of Its In fluence. The consequence Is that paper ip growing desperate, and is now making strenuous efforts to regatn Us lost power. It has covered Us face, savage-like, with war paint, and wants to fight—fight to a finish. Yes, It wants to rally Its scat tered forces and return to the charge— not on the same old battlefield from which It has been whipped, but on a dif ferent field. It Is endeavoring now to inaugurate a guerrilla warfare. In an editorial last week It asks a num ber of questions of Captain Johnston. The copy of the paper containing the questions has been mislaid, otherwise we would gladly copy them here. There are two questions which we de sire to ask the Advertiser, and to each of which we hope to receive a categorical answer. First—Suppose that Captain Johnston should answer even' one of the ques tions asked by the Advertiser to Its sat isfaction. would the Advertiser then sup port Captain Johr.ston for the nomina tion? Second—Will the Advertiser support for the nomination any man who advo cates free coinage?—Opelika News. • • • Tb9 Kind We Need. The democratic members of the house of representatives met In caucus and unanimously voted for Ex-Speaker Crisp for re-election to the third office In Im portance in this government. Gold standard men and advocates of silver as a Joint standard with gpld voted alike for tills able advocate of the free coin age of silver at 16 to 1. Of course, some will say that the honor conferred waq an empty one, as the republicans have an overwhelming majority of the house. But the principle Is the same, and if the house had been democratic Mr. Crisp would have been the speaker Hls abil ity and hls fairness would have out weighed any objection the gold standard members had. And yet, down here In Alabama, where a governor has less com trol over national finances than a one bale cotton producer has over the price of the great staple, we are told by a lit tle clique of rule or ruin amateur states men that Alabama will be wrecked be yond all hope of recovery If Joe Johnston Is made our democratic nominee. John ston Is a man of ability and fairness, like Crisp. Moreover he Is a man of firmness and excellent business qualifications. He Is the kind of man Alabama needs to have for governor at the earliest oppor turity. 1*3 iifie a familiar phi few- from Charles Dickens, there is no “bigod non sense” about Johnston. As governor he would go about his duties in a practical way. He would make a profitable gov ernor for the state of Alabama.—Hunts ville Argus. Children Cry for Pitcher’s Castoria.

It appears that, however great may be the republicans' majority In the house, they will not be able to dominate the sen ate. The six populist senators—Allen of Ne braska, Kyle of South Dakota, Butler of North Carolina, Peffer ot Kansas and Jones and Stewart of Nevada—have re solved to act together In all strictly par ty questions, and not to give aid to eith er of the old parties. Under these circumstances the fepub lleans lack three of a majority, and even should two republicans from Utah be ad mitted they will be one short of the con trol of the senate. The populists, thus holding a balance of power, will be able to gain a good many concessions from those who may wish to use them. thinness The diseases of thinness are scrofula in children, consumption in grown people, poverty of blood in either.
