The house held a short session yes-
terday morning. Representative Alex-
ander of Volumia introduced a resolu-
tieon cesuring Congeressman Cark for
his attitude eon the tariff. The reeolu-

The Hilburn resolution introduced
In the house, while it is apparently in
an Incomplete form, as it "resolves to
amend the general statutes" without
making therein any provisicn for its
submission to the voters of the state,
seems to be the much more consistent
measure, and It Is probable that upon
the Hllburn resolution the main flight
will be made. In this connection, It
might be well to state that there is a
general feeling that the Hllburn reso-
lution will pass the house and fail in
the senate.
It Is understood that there will be a
strong bill introduced providing for the
establishment of a state printng plant
and that it Will include a free school
box law, the books to be printed and
furnished to the scholars by the state,
with only a nominal sum in the way of
a deposit to insure against an abuse

one that they would be greatly re-
duced in the price of rents, has ma-
terialised* The rents today are as
high as they were before prohibi-
tion went Into effect. Of course
there are a few exceptions, but the
general results are not materially
The building record in Birming-
ham during 1908 was the largest
ever in the history of the city, de-
spite the financial depression all
over the country, the more or less
handicapped business activity by
reason of presidential politics and
the coal miners' strike of more than
two months' duration.
'the amount of money invested in
building enterprises during 1908,
while prohibition was in operation,
includes the financing of four large
office buildings, one of them the an-
nex to the Brown-Marx building,
which was larger than the original
building Itself, and seventeen stories
high; another, the financing of the
Empire office building, on which
work has already commenced, and
which will be seventeen stories
high; still another, what is known
as the Parley building, which will
be nin, stories high, and the splen-
did new Chamber of Commerce
building, which will be seven stories
high. These four buildings alone
will cost about $1,500,000. Busi-
ness in the residential district was
very active an during 1908.
LaIbr Not Afald of Prohibition
It has been found by experience
that desirable labor hai not been
kept Aot of this district by reason of
prohibition, and that little if any
desirable labor has left for that


mlis MMe Opposed ProbiMtion
at Filn
A comprehensive view of what
prohibition. under local option law.
has done for Birmingham and Jef-
ferson county during twelve months
will be of interest to all cities and
states which are seriously consider-
tag the Issue In any form.
Whether statutory prohibition
stands the test of the courts or not,
Birmingham and Jefferson county
wil remain dry by reason of the lo-
cal option law, upon which prohibi-
tion has been in operation in this
district for a year. That law has
stood the test of the courts. The
local option law was adopted by a
Isrge majority of voters in an e'ec-
tion called for that purpose. It is
interesting to note how the law
looks after a year's test.
When prohibition was carried,
most of the prominent industrial
leaders in Jefferson county were op-
posed to it. They believed, and so
expressed themselves:
"That It would not materially re-
duce the liquor traffic and the evils
arising therefrom in *his district;
"That it would keep away many
desirable workers in the mines and
mills of the district;
"That It would deprive the city of
a large source os revenue;
"That it would drive away many
efficient laborers In the mechanical
"That it would Injure property
Indmtrial Res ts of Prohibition
Let us look at the effects: First,
the Industrial side of It. Birming-
haum and Jefferson county, in 1907,
had between two and three hundred
illegal liquor sellers, under prohibi-
tion termed "blind tigers," which
seems to show that the presence of
licensed saloons does not prevent
the illegal sale of liquor.
When prohibition went into ef-
fect here, it was shortly after the
sharp panic of of 1907. That panic
was followed by a disastrous indus-
trial depression the country over,
and Birmingham suffered, just as
every other southern c'y suffered.
Furthermore, during .ast summer,
the Birmingham district had a long
continued, costly and aggravated
coal miners' strike, which reduced
the production of both coal and iron
in this community and threatened to
do tremendous damage. All of these
things were largely laid at the door
of prohibition by a great many peo-
ple who do not stop to think. Pro-
hibition was blamed for a large pro-
portion of those losses resulting
from the natural conditions in the
country, growing out of the indus-
trial depression. Of course this was
not fair to prohibition, but prohibi-
tion had to stand for it because it
came at i time which was unfortun-
ate from the reformers' standpoint.
Irvestmest of Capital
Notwithwtanding the financial de-
pression everywhere during 1908,
capital invested in Birmingham and
district, the whole of it lying in pro-
hibition territory, increased during
the year. $17,507,700. This was
$3,390,200 more than was invested
in II of the year 1907, which, until
late in October, was a year of un-
precedented business prosperity.
Balding Operations for Year
Keeping in mind that 1908 was
what is known as an "'off" year, fi-
nancially, the city of Birmingham,
during that year, had an unparallel-
ed progress in building enterprises.
The building inspector's office issued
a total of 1,104 permits in 1908,
representing a money expenditure
aggregating $2,546,519 as compared
with 1,047 permits in 1907, repre-
senting an expenditure aggregating
$1,918,205. Here is an increase of
