Good fishing at East Lake. 12-l-tf SENSATtON IN THE SENATE (Continued From First Page.) 1y no reference to the senator from New York. But I infant to say that under this adminstration there had grown up •i system by which every fellow who stood at the door of the treasury depart ment seemed to suppose that he was of ciallyconnected with the department and was competent to Instruct the people In matters of finance. He had no refer ence whatever to th? senator from New York. Even the officer whose duty is purely mechanical—to fabricate coin— is telling us daily through the public press what ought to be the policy of the United States." "Of course," Mr. Hill resumed, "I am not responsible for the utterances of the director of the mint. I am one of those who doubted the policy of his appoint ment, but \ suppose he has a right, offi cially. to discuss the finance question, and he is probably as competent," Mr. Hill added with a bitterness of expres sion which showed that he did not en tirely accept Mr. Teller’s disavowal in the matter of the " ‘tide water,’ " "as gentle men who hail from the wilds of Colo rado." (Laughter.) "I am not authorized,” he continued, "to speak for the secretary of the treasu ury. I am nut authorized to speak for the president. 1 speak for no one except myself. 1 utter my own sentiments, and because the secretary of the treasury and the president have seen fit to make certain recommendations in accordance with views which T expressed a year ago, the senator from Colorado cannot crowd me off my own platform." The debate here came to an end. -o REPUBLICAN CAUCUS. Democrats Say the Revenue Bill Will Not Pokk. Washington, Dec. 27.—The republicans h£W a caucus of not more than ten or fif teen minutes’ duration after the adjourn ment of the senate today. It was decided that republican senators should be pres ent Monday when, the vote on the reor ganization of committees will be taken, so there should be no doubt about the presence1 of a quorum. The committee to fill committee vacancies reported that it had had its attention called to the fact that too many men had been assigned to the committee on Indian affairs, and Messrs. Mitchell and Pettigrew were In structed to arrange the matter with the minority committee. The republicans also found that in changing the names of some of the minority committees they had run counter to the appropriation bills which authorized the payment of salaries to the clerks to those commit tees, designating them by name. This will be corrected by the adoption of a joint resolution making the appropria tions applicable to the clerks of the com mittees so changed. The progress of the tariff bill will not bo impeded in the-senate. It was referred to the committee on finance today, and subsequently several democratic mem bers of that committee were in confer ence with Mr. Gorman and other leaders discussing the democratic policy in deal ing with the measure. It was tacitly un derstood among those senators that there should be no unreasonable time consumed either in committee or on the floor of the senate. It is believed that the debate in the senate will be of much shorter duration than has been antici pated. and that the democrats, after they have stated their position, will per mit it to come to a vote. The prediction is made, however, by leading democrats that the bill as it came from the house cannot pass the senate. mv. Tuunitrra nas issuea a rail ror a mooting of the finance committee next Tuesday, the regular meeting day. Al though the committee will reorganized before the bill Is reported Mr. Voorhees deemed It proper, as he is still chair man. tn call the meeting at onoe and let the committee deal with the subject. Mr. Voorhees believes the bill will he con sidered promptly in the eommittpe and reported to the senate as expeditiously as possible. No member of the finance com mittee Is willing to predict whether or not the bill will be amended in the senate committee. THE GOLD RESERVE. Cleveland Will Issue Bonds Unless Con gress Acts. Washington. Dec. 27.—The treasury gold reserve at the close of business, with nil withdrawals out, stands at $63, 868.320. Tlie amount at gold reported withdrawn at New York for export today was $2,000,000 and $418,000 in exchange for currency for domestic use. Secretary Carlisle spent most of the day in consultation wllh the president, and was at the treasury only for a few minutes. The Impression is general that the president, living up to the language of his message to congress on Its open ing, will, within a short time, sell $100, 000,000 bonds, unless there Is evidence that some relief measure will pass con gress speedily. The best opinion is that the chances for the senate and house to concur quickly in any measure that will meet the'approval of the president are slight.

THE MAYOR RECOMMENDS That No Saloons Be Allowed in the Residence Portion of the City—Some Licenses Raised, Others Reduced. A special meeting of the city council was held in the council chamber last night for the purpose of fixing the li censes for the year 1S96. Present—Mayor VanHoore, Aldermen Ward, Pearce, Ens len, Jackson, MeCartin,.Gillespie, Meade, Parker, McKnight and Jones. Mayor VanHooee stated the object of the meeting and recommended the fol lowing relative, to the locating of sa loons: Location of Saloons. I recc^'iinend. in Issuing licenses for 199G, that the sale or giving away of li quors, wines, beers or other intoxicants be regulated and restrained to and with in the,following boundaries, and that no license for their sale be issued to any parties'desiring to locate outside of the same: lteginning at the intersection of Alley A and Thirteenth street, eastward along the south side of Alley A to the east side of Seventeenth street, thence southward along the eastern side of Seventeenth street to the north side of Alley C, thence eastward along the northern side of Al ley C to the western side of Twenty third street, thence along the westward side of Twenty-third street to the north side of Alley A, thence along the north side of Alley A to the west side of Twen ty-seventh street, thence along the west side of Twenty-seventh street northward to First alley, thence along the south side of said alley to the west side of Twenty third street, thence northward along the west side of Twenty-third street to the south side of Fourth alley, thence along the south side of Fourth alley to the east side of Seventeenth street, thence south ward along the east side of Seventeenth street to the south side of First alley, thence westward along the south side of First alley to the east side of Thirteenth street, thence southward along the east side of Thirteenth street to the north side of Alley A. My reasons for these recommendations are that we are now confronted with th£ fact, which w'e cannot ignore, but must firmly and at the same time justly to all the many Interests and demands of the city, take hold of and settle in a proper manner. * With the small police force at the cnnj mand of the police commissioners, anil which we are powerless to increase on account of the financial condition erf the city, we see saloons open in the resi dent portion of the city and along cer tain prominent streets at points so dis tant from the center «of the city that it id simply impossible to properly police them and their surroundings In such a manner as to afford protection to women arid children passing, or to these places #f business themselves j We had two striking instances of this at the last session of the board, backed up by such, statements as in your Judg ment, called for immediate and prompt action. While T thoroughly every movement, looking to restraining lawlessness and violence, and to protect the lives and property of our citizens and the fair name of our city, still I am de cidedly of the opinion that this restraint and regulation contemplated by law, should be along lines which treat all alike. Any other way of handling these vested questions will always be open to the charge of unfairness and injustice on the ground that all are not treated alike.' * After much thought over this ques tion and conferene<rwith the police com missioners, who by law are charged with the execution of our laws. I am convinced that it would be much fairer and more practicable and more acceptable, to adopt the recommend a tions as above suggested and I earnestly hope that this board will see its way to doing^so. I again renew-the recommendation that the ordinance presented on November 20 and placed in the'ttfTifds of the committee of police and sanitation for investigation*’ and report, be taken up and adopted. I have already expressed my view's upon this matter in such terms and at such length, that I do not care to again ex press them in this recommendation, but will defer them until the ordinance is re ported back by the committee. Garbage Contract. — On motion of Alderman McCartin the contract for garbage cleaning was given to C. M. Burkhalter & Co., whose bid of $595 per month was handed in and read at the last meeting. Mr. McCartin also offered resolutions calling for bid’s for building of sew;eiv on Eighth avenue. Carried. The mayor stated that he had adver tised for bids to furnish the city coal ft>r six months of 1896. After considerable discussion the li censes were\adopted for the year 1896. the following being the principal changes made: Licenses Advanced. $10 to $20. . Bicycle manufacturing, from $25 to $30. Billiard and ppol tables, from $25 to $50. Breweries oy agency for breweries, fropi $100,fp $200. ' CVotton compresses, from $20 to $100. Fireworks dealer*,- from $10 to $20.

Special Meeting.

LANDRETH’S ADDRESS The Old Frame Structure to Be Replaced With a Handsome New Building—Inter esting Services. The laying of the corner stone of the new Cumberland Presbyterian church edifice at Fifth avenue and Eighteenth Street yesterday afternoon was celebrated with very interesting exercises. There were present to witness the services some 200 people, members and friends of the congregation, who joined in the exer cises. A choir of several voices rendered splendid music and short speeches were made by the pastor, Rev. R. D. Wear, Dr. B. D. Gray, pastor of the First Bap tist church; Dr. G. C. Kelly, pastor of the First Methodist church and Mayor VanHoose. Dr. Ira Landreth of Nash ville delivered the principal address. At the conclusion of Dr. Dandreth’s Bpeech the Masonic fraternity held a short service, observing the ceremonies customary on such occasions. The corner stone was then lowered to its proper place and the benediction was pronounced. Under the corner stone the following items were deposited; The following coins: One silver dol lar, one silver half dollar, one silver quarter, two silver dimes, one niekpl, two copper cents, church letter of Mrs. M. A. Haggett, Bible, Confession of Faith, "Outlines of Bible Study,” by Dr. F. J. Tyler, Birmingham State Her ald, Birmingham News, Church Record, Cumberland Presbyterian. Churoh History. me nia rrame cumoeriana presDyte rian church stood at Fifth avenue and Eighteenth street for twenty-three years, but it is now gone and will soon be replaced by one of the handsomest and most attractive church structures in the city. The church has had a long, hard struggle, but under adverse circum stances has overcome many obstacles and difficulties. The first pastor was Dr. Armstrong, -Ho was a good, noble man and had been . a foreign missionary prior to accepting 1*he pastorate of the church. He was succeeded by Rev, Mr. Blair, and then ‘game Dr. Denson, how of Burton, Tex. Dr. F. J. Tyler succeeded Dr. Denson and remained in charge of the church un ..1,11 two years ago, when he resigned, and fir. George T, Stalnback was called to the charge. The latter remained only tone year, and on accepting his resigna tion the congregating palled Rev. R. D. ■Wear to the pastorate. Shortly after conringhere Mr. Wear be gan urging the congregation to build the new church edifice they had for years contemplated, and finally steps looking to that end were entered upon with the •result that within a few weeks enough .'money had been guaranteed to justify 'th<f congregation to order the work to 'begin. The general'assembly of the Cumber ,lai)d Presbyterian church meets in this •city next May, and itiS’-the Intention and th4 hope of the congregation to have their new house of worship ready for dedication by that time. Dr. Randreth’s Address. Dr. Randreth began by saying that his mission here would he fulfilled when he had obeyed the scripture injunction to "rejoice with those who do rejoice." Upon this, the proudest day in the history of this congregation, it was his greatest pleasure, as an humble member of the Cumberland Presbyterian denomination at large, to assure the members of the Birmingham church that from New Jer sey to the Golden Gate Cumberland Pres byterians rejoiced with the heroic little band who in these financially troublous times dared to undertake so large a building enterprise. While business In stitutions of whatever kind were not only not tearing down their old barns to build, but were even anxious to tear down the new that the old and less expensive might stand again, the members of this congregation have razed to the ground their old chapel and have begun the erec tion of this handsome edifice. And they will succeed; succeed, first .because the house is needed, and secondly, because the people have a mind to work. Ppon this first anniversary of Pastor Wear’s residence the speaker recalled a visit to this site some months ago. when together he and the pastor listened to the voice of God as expressed in local needs and denominational opportunity, and that voice uttered to the Birmingham congregation the command. "Arise and build.” The command has been obeyed. Young and old have responded, and by their gifts have made the early comple tion of this house of worship an assured success. "Rut.” said the speaker, “your mayor has said well and wisely, that the erec tion of such structures as tills is neces sary to the permanent peace and pros perity of your city. Material Birming ham's fame has gone far abroad. A railroad friend, whose home is in iny own ambitions city, said to me a few days ago, 'Birmingham is the best city on 1 lie whole Louisville and Nashville railway system, and though Nashville itself oc cupies a ccertain very intimate position in respect to the railway aforesaid. I dared not say him nay, "But, people of Birmingham, members of all churches and of no churches, if the material prosperity of Birmingham out grows your religious advancement, that very fact will lie the city's curse. Tf your churches are not as numerous and as well cared for as your furnaces and factories, sad indeed will he the fate of your city, now so rapidly growing to greatness, If soul-seeking shall not be as zealous as fortune seeking, the whistle of your locomotive and engines will be but’ a faint echo of the shrieks of the neglected lost, and the belching flames of your furnaces but an intimation of the fiery doom of the thousands of men and wom-n whose salvation you might have sought, snd whoso eternal 'interests you disregarded. In the name, therefore, of Birmingham’s future good and blessing, I plead wllh you all to aid thes* earnest people to complete debt free this worthy structure, the church home of God’s people and God’s poor,” Addressing himself to the members of the church, Mr. Landreth said that when completed this should. In the most sacred sense, be the house of God. As such it should not be a free forum for bitter sec tarian word wars, but that however Its pulpit might, as it should, thunder the glad doctrines of a Presbyterianism which proclaims that “whosoever will” may be saved and only he who will not will be lost. however zealously may here be taught the peculiar and vital doctrines of this denomination, It will never slander the faith or attack the sincerity or vio late the feelings of other earnest Chris tians of whatever creed. Proceeding, he said that this Thurch should not degen erate Into a mere club house or place for fashion display. f<Jr t£e elevation of caste above the democracy ‘ of the gospel of Christ. It ts not to be a vestibuled train, cushioned, and a-move, In which the member may sleep away a passage Into heaven, nor was it to be a theater, con cert hall or place of merchandise, nor yet a graveyard, solemn and forbidding. Its every part is to be a holy of holies, but as happy as holiness of life ought to make places and people. He advocated the making of a beautiful church without and within, urged the attractions of mu sic and flowers, and all the agencies God ordained for the attracting of men and which men have prostituted to sinful uses and abuses. He thought the church should be In the tenderest, truest sense a home, with Gocf'tTie Father, and where the humblest of the tired children of earth may find sweet rest and heavenly communion, and where the stranger shall find a glad welcome to our Father’s house. The church should be a depository where the worshipers shall gladly give back to God as He bath prospered them, devoutly thanking Him for the blessed privilege. The church should be at all times and in every respect a workshop where a wise division of labor is the rule and where every member shall, with might and main, build over against his own house, all working while they pray and praying while they work. But above all and better than all the church should be the v?ry gateofHeaven through which the sinning sons of men shall enter Into the sacred relation of sons of God. Here should be thenewbirth room of numberless men and women, and the constant prayer and purpose of those who call this “God’s church and ous” must be soul winning, or h would be a mercy if 'this should always have continued to be "the little church around the corner," or if’God would even yet destroy it from the earth which it would cumber and whose face it would mar. But these consecrated people will make this church the gate of Heaven, and they deserve ootnmendatlon for what they have already done'and substantial sym pathy in all they"Will undertake to the end that the house, completed, furnished and paid for. may be solemnly dedicated to nature’s God in the early spring-tima when reviving nature will shout in ac cord a thousand "amens” and "hallelu jahs” as the words are spoken which express the final realization of this con gregation’s hope and prayer for a fit and finished church home. A HARD CRIMINAL And Jail Breaker Captured by Officer Culpep per-Wanted forBurglary. Deputy Sheriff Smith of Tallapoosa county arrived last night for Will Pear son.who was captured in this city Christ mas eve night by Officer Ciflpepper. Pearson is charged with burglary and grand larceny, committed in Tallapoosa county, and broke jail about six months ago.
