THE PRESIDENTS MESSAGE
Is Heartily Indorsed From “A
to Izzard.”
DEMOCRATS, REPUBLICANS,
Old Confederate and Federal Soldiers Express
Themselves Ready to Back the Presi
dent to the Hilt.
The message of President Cleveland
in the Venezuelan boundary case was
the occasion of much talk among all
classes of citizens yesterday, who, hav
ing read the dispatches in the State Her
ald, realized the gravity of the situation
and what a sensational color the presi
dent's words had given to the attitude of
this country. Everybody was pleased
that we showed a chief executive who
had the ginger in him to buck up against
the arrogance of John Bull. With very
few exceptions the message was indorsed
in toto. Republicans as well as demo
crats, silverloons as well as goldbugs, all
had words of warm praise tor the pres
ident's stand and the language in which
he set it forth.
There were numberless persons who re
garded the English side of it as of a part,
with John Bull's usual land-grabbing
propensities, and were delighted to Bee
it rebuked, as they thought, by an Amer
ican president. The few who did not ap
prove of the message gave their reasons
as based upon doubt as to whether it
was a case which really demanded the
Intervention of the Monroe doctrine.
Judge Roulhac of Sheffield, who was in
the city on his way to south Alabama,
was among those w-ho took this view of
the issue. A warm supporter of the ad
ministration. he expressed surprise that
Mr. Cleveland had sent such a message
to congress, and gave it as his opinion
that the Monroe doctrine had no more
to do with the Schomburgk line than the
determination of the line between Can
ada and the United States.
• • •
Gen. Fred S. Ferguson, as brave a sol
dier as ever carried a gun in the Confed
eracy and the present general command
er of the department of Alabama United
Confederate Veterans, said:
"That is the grandest state paper ever
written, and I agree with every word of
it. We old soldiers are somewhat aged,
but if the worst comes to the worst wo
will be found in the thickest of the fight.
However, I do not anticipate any serious
trouble.”
Gen. George L. Thomas—I Indorse ev
ery word President Cleveland says. I
don’t think there will be any war. The
two greatest English-speaking nations
will certainly not go to war for so small
a cause as that Involved. I think the
matter will be arbitrated without resort
ing to war.
* • •
Maj. W. H. Hunter, who was major In
the Twelfth Ohio cavalry during the civil
war, said: ’’I am pleased with President
Clevelp-tulls—®essage. It has the true
American ring, ant! i-fi rnnhnon
the Grand Army of tlft*- Republic. 000,000
strong, at his back.” /■
• * • •
G. L. Young, county commissioner—
I am ready for service if war comes. Put
me down in the list of volunteers. 1 ad
mire the tone of the message.
* • •
M. T. Porter, probate judge—The mes
sage is right. By all means we should
maintain the spirit of the Monroe doc
trine I do not believe there is much dan
ger of a fight, but if fight Is necessary
to keep England within proper bounds,
then fight we should.
• • •
George M. Morrow, sheriff—The mes
sage is the finest thing I have ever read.
It is in thorough accord with my admira
tion of Grover Cleveland, who is a manly
and patriotic American above all things.
• • •
John McCoy, republican—The message
Is the proper and the right thing. The
American people may disagree on minor
matters of internal concern, but they will
be found always with the executive in
the maintenance of the dignity of the
great republic. ,
James Morrow, county jailer—Let her
come; the sooner the better. We must
lick that pampered nation In the end, and
might as well do It now and be done wltli
It She has fattened on small fry, but
England will find it a tough job to run
over the United States.
* • •
Alex T. London, attorney—It is an ex
cellent message. It is worthy of the chief
executive of a great and self-respecting
nation.
• • *
M. A. Porter, attorney—It hits the nail
on the head. It says the correct thing in
the correct manner.
• * •
C. A. Mountjijy, attorney—It is great.
By all means we should maintain the
principles of the Monroe doctrine. The
message is manly and jjatriotlc.
John London, attorney—It Is exactly
right. If war Is necessary to maintain
our rights, let war come.

FIRE AT BESSEMER.
Half a Dozen Buildings Destroyed—Very Small
Insurance—List of the Losses—Cit
izens Did Good Work.
Bessemer suffered from a disastrous
fire yesterday morning.
Half a dozen or more buildings were
destroyed and likewise the stocks of
goods in them.
The fire jvas discovered at 3:30 o’clock
in Jenkins’ saloon, on Twenty-first
street near First avenue, and before it
could be checked had consumed almost
an entire block.
The alarm was given as soon as the fire
was discovered, and a large portion of
Bessemer's population turned out and
rendered all the assistance possible to
wards extinguishing the flames, but the
the best they could do was to confine the
flames to one block.
The insurance carried on the stocks
was a very small portion of the value
placed on the property destroyed.
The losses were as follows:
Handle Bros., furniture; stock, $4000;
insurance, $2000.
Al. Benson's saloon; contents, $200.
Sweet & Culpepper, furniture; $1500.
Bessemer Auction company, $X00.
James C. Meyers' saloon, $1000.
Jenkins’ saloon, $500.
Most of the property destroyed was
par:ially 'Insured in companies repre
sented by James F. Hard & Co. of Besse
mer.
Y\70MEN’S FACES
*T —like flowers, fade
and witherwitlitiuie;
the bloom of the rose
is only known to the
IA healthy woman's
(gljl. cheeks. The lierv
ous strain caused by
rjTVB'the ailments and
’ -V1? pains peculiar to the
sex, and the labor
r* and worry of rearing
a family, can often
be traced by the lines in tne woman s lace.
Dull eyes, the sallow or wrinkled face and
those “feelings of weakness” have their
rise in the derangements and irregularities
peculiar to women. The functional de
rangements, painful disorders, and chronic
weaknesses of women, can be cured with
Dr. Pierce’s Favorite Prescription. For the
young girl just entering womanhood, for
the mother and those about to become
mothers, and later in “the change of life,”
the “Prescription ” is just what they need ;
it aids nature in preparing the system for
the change. It’s a medicine prescribed for
thirty years, in the diseases of women, by
Dr. R. V. Pierce, chief consulting physician
to the Invalids’ Hotel and Surgical Insti
tute,at Buffalo, N. Y. Dr. Pierce’s Favorite
Prescription will cure the chronic inflamma
tion of the lining membranes which cause
such exhausting drains upon the system.
It cures nervous prostration, sleeplessness,
faintness, nervous debility and all disorders
arising from derangement of the female
organs and functions.
Mrs. Jennie Williams, of Mohawk. Lane Co.,
Oregon, writes : I
was sick for over three
years with blind dizzy
spells, palpitation of
tne heart, pain in the
back and head, and
at times would have
such a weak tired feel
ing when I first got
up in the morning,
and at times nervous
chills. _ .
. -• -Tne physicians dif
fered as to what my
disease was. but none
of them did me any
good. As soon as I
commenced taking Dr.
Pierce’s Favorite Pre
scription, I began to
get better ; could sleep

that this couldn’t be. But we
looked into the matter, and found
that she was using one of the

soaps with her Pearline. When we
induced her to use Pearline walone,
without this soap, everything was lovely.
Use no soap, when you do any wash

THE BEST OF ALL
In All Things All The Time
THERE are many GOOD life insurance companies, but among
them all there must be one BEST. THE BEST is THE
EQUITABLE. If you wish to know why, send for: i, the
report of the Superintendent of Insurance for the State of New
York on the examination of The Equitable; 2, for actual results
of maturing policies; 3, for statement of death claims paid in
1894. Then you will know the three great reasons of The
Equitable’s supremacy: First, its financial stability; second,
its great profits and advantages to living policy-holders ; third,
the promptness of its payments and liberality of its settlements.
