To Be Erected Here by Chicago Capitalists. WORK TO BEGIN NEXT WEEK And the Plant Will Be in Operation by April 1 With Sixty Skilled Employes. Birmingham will start oft the nt w year •with the establishment ot a new indus trial plant. The contract for it was signed yester day and the deeds to the land executed. To clinch the matter a money payment was made, and now all that remains to be done Is to begin work on the erection of the building and the placing of ma chinery therein. The capital to build the plant comes from Chicago and every stockholder is a resident of that city. Not a dollar of Birmingham money will go into the plant. The gentlemen at the head of the enterprise are now In Birmingham and will remain until work on the plant be gins, which will be within the next week or ten .days- They have with them an architect, who has been instructed to draw the plans for the building, and contractors have also been consulted. Notwithstanding all arrangements have been perfected and work is to begin in a few days, the gentlemen Interested in the enterprise will not consent for their names to be made public just yet. The plant they will establish here will make car wheels and will be located on the Louisville und Nashville and Ala bama Great Southern railroads, near the Birmingham Bolling mill. The works will b- in operation by the 1st of April, at which time sixty skill'd mechanics will be given employment. This number is to.be added to until at the beginning of the year 1X117 the company will employ not less than 150 men. Negotiations for the location of this plant here were begun seven or eight months ago by Malone & Bell of this city. They succeeded In Interesting sev ered Chicago parties, who sent a repre sentative to Investigate and report the prospects for car works If located here. That report was favorable and then be gan the negotiations for land. etc. Not until yesterday was everything settled and all deeds and papers signed. The machinery to be used In the car works Is all new. never having been used before and having Just been purchased from the factories. The plant will be first-class in every particular and the company putting It In have ample capi tal to successfully operate it. Children Cry for Pitcher’s Castoria.

Sentiment of the American Press on the Situation. The declarations of Mr. Cleveland’s special message on the Venezuelan affair are very serious. They are more so than the American public had expected, though they are absolutely in harmony with the brief statement contained in the message of December 3.—New York Times, Dem. There is no jingoism In the president’s message; neither is there weakness, or cowardice, or "supine submission.” The answers to the points of Lord Salisbury’s reply are plain and direct, and the presi dent wastes no words In quibbling over technicalities, but grasps the situation In a broad, patriotic spirit.—Washinlgton Star, I nd. Its conspicuous feature is Its clear, ringing Americanism. Not a discordant note Is sounded. The president appears to know what the Monroe doctrine is and how it should be enforced, and he is ready to lend his aid to congress, In spite of the warnings of timid organs or the Insolent flings of his self-constituted advisers.—Baltimore American, Rep. The unanimity with which congress and the people support the president in this Venezuela matter makes It certain that there will be no backdown on the part of this country. Greatly as a war between the two great English-speaking peoples is to be deplored, there will be war between them if it is found that Great Britain has seized Venezuela ter ritory, and she Insists upon retaining possession of that territory.—Savannah News, Dem. Great Britain has possessions adjoin ing the territory of Venezuela. There is a difference of opinion between the two countries as to where the boundary line between them Ilea. With that dispute we have absolutely nothing to do. For us to make the quarrel our own, as the president and congress seem to In tend. would be as arrogant a proceeding as any of Great Britain's bulldozing In terferences with other people’s affairs for land-grabbing purposes.—New York w oria, i.iem. At last Grover Cleveland has risen above the narrow confines of a pettifog ging partisan, and at one leap has reached the high plane of patriotism. It makes no difference to the American people what the politics of the occupant of the white house may be when the nation is facing a crisis. It la only important that the president shall be representative of all the people In their views, and above all else, broad-minded, liberal, patriotic and an American through and through. —New York Advertiser, Rep. We have a flag, then. It appears. It Is not foolish and ignoble, to speak of national dignity and honor. We are not blustering bullies and swashbucklers who have Invoked the love and pride of country and stood for the sacredness of American soil as against encroachment by the European powers. The "Jingoes" were right, after all, and It Is not to be the fashion henceforth to sneer at patriots and soldiers. If those who stood for the country. Its traditions and Us ensign were 1 Jingoes.” then Is Grover Cleveland the greatest ‘'Jingo” of them all.—Washington Post, Ind. Thomas Jefferson was a pretty good American. He said In 1803 that a main object of the United States "must be to exclude al European Influence In this hemisphere." That was fifteen years be fore the promulgation of the Monroe doc trine. In 1823, when President Monroe asked Jefferson’s advice about enunciat ing the doctrine. Jefferson said: "Our first and fundamental maxim should be never to entangle ourselves In the broils of Europe. Our second, never to suffer Europe to Intermeddle with Cisatlantic affairs.*’—Indianapolis Journal. A FUTILE EFFORT To Choke to Death a Home Institution Being Made—It Will Not Succeed. The Southeastern Tariff association has caused the association companies to leave the Birmingham Underwriters’ agency because it represents the South ern Mutual Fire Insurance company of Alabama. The Southern Mutual does business only in Alabama and proposes to return the profits to the policy holders, and for this reason the tariff association is taking steps to choke it to death. The Birmingham Underwriters’ agency is prepared to take care of every policy now in the companies leaving its agency by placing them in other good companies that do not belong to the association. We trust that not a single one of our patrons will desert us In this effort to crush us. If other agencies should so licit the business in the companies which have left us, we will doubly appreciate it should you elect to tell them that it is your derision to let us continue to take care of your business. It is not to be be lieved that the people of Birmingham and Alabama will allow the Tariff asso ciation to make them a party to choke to death an honest effort to build up a home institution. The association has precipitated this matter and made it necessary for the people of Birmingham and Alabama to decide whether they will uphold the Tariff association in its arbi trary methods by means of which It at tempts to destroy home institutions.

THE nUSCULAR SYSTEM ^g^k every weary, thin or thin blood work with con stant diflicultyand fatigue. They feel “worn,” or tired out, “run-down” or nervous. Feeble people who are dyspep tic, find that ex ercise after a meal is sure to cause lessened power to digest food — be cause there is so little blood, and what there is, is carried off from the gastric organs to the muscles. What is needed is plenty of blood, H7/rI - 'w anu uiai ui luc right kind. Dr. Pierce’s Golden Medical Discovery makes pure, rich blood, and to gain in blood is nearly always to gain in wholesome flesh up to the healthy standard. Every one should have a certain surplus of Qesh to meet the emergencies of sick ness ; to resist the attack of consumption, grip, malaria and fevers. Thin blooded people are always getting sick, and none of the organs of the body can get along with out the food they require for work, which is, pure blood. To gain and to keep strength and flesh is the secret of health, usefulness and happiness. With new blood and re freshed nerves a confident feeling of return ing health comes also. Nervous manifestations, such as sleep lessness, nervous debility and nervous prostration are in nine cases out of ten “ the cry of the starved nerves for food.” If you feed the nerves on pure rich blood the nervous symptoms will cease. It is bad practice to put the nerves to sleep with so called celery mixtures, coca compounds or malt extracts: what is needed is a blood maker. The " Discovery ” is composed of vegetable ingredients which have an es pecial effect upon the stomach, liver, and blood making glands. For the cure of dyspepsia, indigestion, liver complaint, weakened vitality, and for puny, pale peo ple, Dr. Pierce’s Golden Medical Discov ery cannot be equaled.
