A special telegram to the Richmond Times last night from Birmingham, Ala., says: The Episcopal clergy of Alabama have asked for the resignation of Rt. Rev. H, Melville Jackson, who has beer. Bishop-Coadjutor of Alabama the past] seven or eight years. This action was taken at a recent session of the Dio? cesan Council of the church, held at Anniston. Bishop Wllmer presided at the council which took this .step. MOVEMENT NOT A NEW ONE. The movement that culminated in the action taken at Anniston has been go. ing on for several years, nnd the de? nouement caused but little surprise. Bishop Jackson Is now understood to be in Richmond, his former home, con? sulting relatives as to his action on the request. Since coming to Alabama he married Miss Carrie Cochrane, of Eufaula, one of the most noted belles and beauties in the State, and purchased a hand? some home at Montgomery, where he has resided. In the pulpit he was rec? ognized as a strong and eloquent man. The matter of the request for his resignation was kept quiet until to-day. when it came out in local print, and since then leading Episcopalians have admitted lbs reliability. NOT IN RICHMOND. It was reported last evening that Bishop Jackson was in the city, stop? ping with relatives. A reporter of The Times, who called late last evening at tho residence of Mr. James B. Pace, where he stops on his visits to this city, was informed that the Bishop was not here, and that his arrival was not look? ed for. He was still supposed to be in Alabama. ONCE RECTOR HERE. Bishop Jackson was formerly rector Of ('.race Church, this city, and wan elected from that position to Bishop Coadjutor for the Alabama Diocese. Bishop Jackson has often visited Richmond since he left here, and Ire? I quently preached here. He has many many friends and admirers in this city, and always receives a warm welcome when lie comes here. His first wife was a daughter of Mr. James B. Pace, and when in Richmond he is regularly entertained at the Pace residence. Bishop Jackson was in Richmond some time ago. and preached to a large and much pleased audience. He Is cor? dial in manner, and Is quite popular In Virginia. His health has not been strong for several years, and this fact is believed to he the basis of the trou? ble that led up to the action of tho Al? abama clergy In requesting his reelgna tion. It has been known in Norfolk, where Bishop Jackson once resided, that Ills relations with the church was some? what strained, and the information that his resignation has been requested will occasion no great surprise. Bishop Jackson is the son of Dr. S. IC. Jackson, who a few years ago left the city to reside with hie-: son at Mont? gomery. Ala. Mr. Edward C. Jackson, who resides In Brambleton Ward, Is a brother of the Bishop. Another bro? ther. Mr. Marshall Parlts Jackson, lives in Colorado.

Tho Antilles Transportation Com? pany has leased from Reed Bros, n pier and contracted to erect within six months a fine warehouse. The Virginian-Pilot of Thursday made the exclusive announcement that a representative of the Antilles Trans? portation Company, of New York, had arrived in tho city with the view of perfecting arrangements for the estab? lishment of an agency in this city, and this morning wo have the pleasure nf announcing that his mission has been crowned with the most grntifying suc? cess.

The company is now conducting a regular lino of steamers from New O.XK IN EVERT FOFR Ono Person In l.very Four SnflYrs From Piles. i About one person In every four suffers I from some form of rectal disease. The most common and annoying Is Itching piles Indicated by warmth, slight inolst IIre and Intense, uncontrollable Itching In the parts affected. Tho usual treatment has been some simple o'.ntment or salve which some? times give temporary relief, but nothing like a permanent euro can be. expected from such superficial treatment. Tho only permanent cure for itching pill s yet discovered is the Pyram'd Pilo cure not only for Itching p ies, but for every other form of plies, blind, bleeding or protruding. The first implication Rives instant relief nnd the continued use for a short time causes a permanent removal of the tumors of the small imrnslles which cause the intenso Itching and discomfort nf itching plies. Many physicians for a long time sup noaed that the remarkable relief afforded by the Pyramid Pile Cure was because it was supposed to contain cocaine opium, or similar drugs, but snob (s not the, caae. A ieornt careful analysts of tho remedy showed St to be nbsdlutely free from any cocaine, opium, or in fact any polsonoius. Injurious drugs whatever. Sold by drug? gists at SO cents per package. Paine's Celery Compound Makes Weak Women Strong. What Miss Lucy A. Holser, a trained nurse of eight years' experience and a graduate of the Homeopathic Hospital of Minneapolis, Minn., hero says of Palnc's Celery compound vitally con? cerns every suffering woman: "I am glad to testify to the merits of Palnc's celery compound especially aa a tonic In cases of convalescence. I have noticed very satisfactory results with patients under my care \ when Paine's celery compound was pre? scribed." The above endorsement is corrobo rated by the experience of Mrs. Hasel ton: "We have been using your Paine's celery compound in the Nazarcnc Home for some months, and it is with great pleasure that I can 6ay that our aged people have Invariably been benefited by its use. I have been using It my? self, nsTias also my niece, and there h is been a marked Improvement In our health. I was very much run-down after the winter's hard work, but am feeling very much better. I have rec? ommended It to a number of friends outside of the Home, and they, too, have been greatly pleased with the re? sults. We shall never be without It In the Home." Mrs. M. A. Haselton, Man? nger Nazarene Home, "032-2034 Colum? bia Ave., Philadelphia, Pa. Mrs. Chandler, President of the So? ciety for the Promotion of Health, Chicago, 111., says: "Too constant application to work has at times caused sick and nervous headaches, very persistent and painful.
