The Advertises on Tuesday, in a Short paragraph, characterized aa editorial in Sunday's Age-Herald Age-Herald Age-Herald as a sort of a Maro Antony oration. The thrust was well aimed, for it has gona to the quick. Our Birmingham contemporary contemporary squirmad and writhed all over th9 space of a column yesterday. With its usual insincerity it did not pull at the shaft that pierced it, but snapped and gnawed at another, hoping hoping thereby to mislead on-lookers on-lookers on-lookers aud to get undeserved sympathy. It makes a great fuss about an incidental incidental quotation from The Birmingham Birmingham Mews, which called it "a inch tariff paper." Instead of honoring The News with soaio of its choice names, it tried to ridicule The Adveb-tisek Adveb-tisek Adveb-tisek as an "ignorant, guarrilious old granny." Sj far as being ig;iorant is concerned, whether upoa the tariff or any other political question, it is very evident that Tnz Advertises knew eaoug'i to bo indirectly instrumental instrumental in bribing around the changj of front of The Agc-IIorald Agc-IIorald Agc-IIorald upon that aud other later Issues. If iho Birmingham journalistic truckUtr is no w "c ordialiy with the party" on tin tariff issue, it is a recent thing, brought a'ooat mainly by the strong anti-protectiou anti-protectiou anti-protectiou sentiments of tho masses of Alabama. The Ad- Ad- yertisss does not think it wide of the truth to say that it has had much to do with educating tho Alabama public into its right thinking on that subject, aud in this right teaching, this paper has for years been opposed by The Ago-Iierald Ago-Iierald Ago-Iierald and its predecessors. If The Advertiser is ignorant, what is The Age-Herald, Age-Herald, Age-Herald, which to-day to-day to-day announces itself to be "cordially" in sympathy with those views on the leading issue of the any which this paper has held for years? However, The Advertiser is not merely an "ignorant," but a "guerrilous old granny." At llrst glance we thought this was meant to be "querulous," "querulous," but on reflection it is evident that our Birmingham Solomon has coined a new word to express the idea of warlike. It must have had in mind "Grandma's" attitude in the State canvass for the last few' months, the result of which has also shown bow ignorant and foolish she was. Of coarse, it galls The Age-Herald Age-Herald Age-Herald to be compelled to follow the lead of a silly, aggressive old granny like The Advertises, Advertises, not only on national issues like the tariff, but on State questions. It is very degrading and unfortunate, and we sincerely pity our foontempor ary. Bat it is tho way of life. Provi dence has always chosen the weak things of this world to oonfound the mighty. The Age-Herald Age-Herald Age-Herald had as well to accept the situation philosophically and begin to venerate '"Grandma," in stead of kicking and calling her dis respectful names. Its present course appears not only unseemly to.the Ala bama public, but really laughable. The more it kicks against the pricks, the mors people laugh. At the State Bankers' Association to meet at Monte Sano on July 2d, Messrs. R. Goldthwaite and A. M. Baldwin, of this city are down on the program for speeches. They will handle their subjects subjects with ability and demonstrate the wisdom of their selection. LOCKS ON THE COOSA.. : iN It Is said by those who are in, a posl-; posl-; posl-; tion to know that the size of th looks on the Coosa is entirely too small to meet the requirements of navigation and for the oheap transportation of ooaL Efforts are being made to have the standard size adopted for the loeks on the Coosa, and suoh action seems to be absolutely necessary to reap full benefits from the work. The river and harbor bill, whloh passed the House of Representatives on May 29th, 1890, and wnioh is now under consideration by the Senate committee on oommeroe, provides for the Coosa river as follows: , "Improving the Coosa river in Georgia Georgia and Alabama, between Rome, in Georgia, and East Tennessee, Virginia and Georgia railroad bridge, in Alabama: Alabama: Continuing improvement un-dor un-dor un-dor approved existing project, one hundred and fifty thousand dollars. Also for improving said river botweon Wetumpka, in Alabama, and said .East Teunossee, Virginia and Georgia railroad railroad bridge, work to be oumtnenced at Wetumpka end, one hundred : and fifty thousand dollars, of which so much as may be necessary is authorized to be expended in acquiring, by purchase purchase or condemnation under the laws of Alabama, the lands needed in making making such improvement, as the same become become necessary; such improvement to bo raado in harmony with the existing approved projoct for the improvement of the Coosa river between Rome, and said bridge; locks to be forty feot Wide and two hundred and ten feet between mitre sills." Tho existing project referred to, provides provides for tho improvement of the river botween Rome, Ga., and the E. T., V- V- & G, R. R. bridgo, by tho construction of li.cks forty foot wide and 210 feet long, at such points as may be necessary, and by the removal of rocks and other obstructions between the looks, in such manner as to provide a channel three feet deep at low water. Under this project, which was adpoted in 1878, three locks have been completed between between Gadsden, Ala., and the Broken Arrow coal fields, which will afford water transportation up-stream up-stream up-stream from those coal fields to Gadsden, Rome and intermediate points ou the river. No i'cks have yet been built below the Broken Arrow coal fields. Iu a report to the chief of engineers ou tho survey of the Coosa River between between the improvements already completed completed und Wetumpka, under date of December 30. 1S30, it is estimated that twenty-eight twenty-eight twenty-eight lock9 will be required to open the river from the Brokon Arrow coal fields to Wetumpka, and it is recommended that the size of the locks, to be built to accommodate the down-stream down-stream down-stream coal and iron oro traffic, shall bo increased to a width of lifty-two lifty-two lifty-two feet, and a length of 322 feet, in ordor that one tow-boat tow-boat tow-boat and three barges may pass through each lock at one lockage. In January, 1888, Col. William E. Merrill, Corps of Edgineors, U. S. A., an officer who has had a large experience experience in the construction of locks aud dams, and is an expert on the subject of slack water navigation, made an inspection inspection and report on the Coosa river work. The following is an extract from Colonel Merrill's report: "The most serious question is whether whether or not the present improvement will meet the wants of the people of the Coosa Valley. It is designed to give a low water navigation for steamboats of three feet. I think that it will undoubtedly undoubtedly secure this object. Whether such a navigatiou will meet popular ex pectation is anotnor question. From my long experience with towing towing coal on the Ohio river. I feel justified justified in asserting that coal cannot be profitably handled on less than six feet of water. It is my opinion that it is hardly worth while to improve the Coosa river by so expensive a process as tho construction of locks and dams, unless a navigation is created that will permit the cheap shipment of coal. On the Coosa, these shipments would naturally be made up-stream up-stream up-stream to Gadsden Gadsden and Rome, and down-stream down-stream down-stream to Wetumpka and points below. Locks 1, 2, and ! belong to tho up-stream up-stream up-stream line of navigation, and lock i to the downstream. downstream. As the latter look has 'not besu begun, I would recommend that it be changed at once to the dimensions already adopted for the Black Warrior river, so as to pass two standard Pittsburg Pittsburg coal barges (25x130), and one tow-boat tow-boat tow-boat in one lockuge." Before beginning work on the locks on the Black Warrior river, near Tus-kaloosa, Tus-kaloosa, Tus-kaloosa, Ala., the plans of Maj. A. N. Damrell, corps of engineers, U. S. AM were referred to a Board of Engineers. Engineers. Maj. Damrell's original plans provided for locks 300 feet long and 52 feet wide. The Board recom mended, on the ground that a profitable profitable coal traffic could not be carried on with; locks of less size, that the length of the locks should be increased 22 feet, and the locks are now being built 322 feet long by 52 feet wide. In a report dated June 21st, 1832, a Board of Engineers appointed to con sider tho question of improvement of the great Kanawha river, in West Virginia, Virginia, state: "Locks Nos. 4 and 5 are built 50 feet wide and 300 feet between mitre sills. Since the adoption of these dimen sions, mere lias Deen a gradual increase increase in the size of (coal barges, and tow-boats tow-boats tow-boats in, use on the river, and to aooinmodate.it, if the dimensions of No. 6, were increased to a width of 55 feet, and to a length 312 feet between mitre -sills, -sills, which change, in the opinion of the board, is a judicious one. A lock ought to be able to hold at least two barges, and oue first class tow-boat, tow-boat, tow-boat, suon as Habitually ply on tne river." In reports, in 1887, on the improvement improvement of the Cumberland River, Tennessee, Tennessee, a board of engineers make the following remarks: "All their past experience teaches that the requirement) of commerce have demanded enlargement of the projects originally submitted. They attach no importance to the opinions of the river navigators touching touching this question, as these very men I would be the first to build larger, and ' I L . 1 inereiorn proportionately more economical economical boats, and then blame the engineers engineers for having failed to provide sufficient accommodations. The locks on the Cumberland river are assumed to be specially iutended for the development of the coal traffic of the Upper Cumberland. To handle this trafflo economically, the looks should be large enough to take - in a full tow wltn tow-Doat tow-Doat tow-Doat at one loonage. For the present it is deemed best to assume as the ordinary tow, one tow-boat tow-boat tow-boat end three barges, It is assumed that whatever be the present sizes ot Cumberland river coal barges, they will ultimately be made to conform to the standard size in use on the Ohio and Great Kanawha rivers, whloh is 130 feet long and 25 feet wide. Two barges abreast will then reauire a width of 62 feet. The length of tow-boat tow-boat tow-boat that will Drobably be used tor suoh fleets; will be 25 feet wide and 150 feet long,' over all." - l t ' . The length of the look is therefore fixed at 322 feet . In view'of the facts stated in these quotations, from reports of distinguished distinguished offloers of the Corps of Engineers, Engineers, who have had large experlenos in slmiliar work, it will be unfortunate to the interests affected by the opening of the Coosa river, should the appropriation appropriation for that purpose pass the Senate, Senate, with the restrictions, as to the size of the lock9, now oontalned in the river and harbor bill Only one boat. or barge, can pass suoh looks at one time, and it will be neoessafy at each of the twenty-eight twenty-eight twenty-eight looks between the Broken Arrow Coal Fields and Wetumpka, to break up the tow) and pass each boat and barge through separately. So muoh time and expense will be involved in this operation that it is doubtful if coal and iron-ore iron-ore iron-ore transportation, transportation, nan be carried on, profitably and It is probable that the benefits so anxiously expected to be derived from the opouing of the Coosa river, may be entirely lost, unless the standard size is adopted for the locks. KICKING OI F OF THE TRACES. Some of the more conscientious and scrupulous Republicans have revolted against the mode and method of the party in the present Congress. The main object in view seems to be tho devising of ways and means to retain tho Republican party in power, and when that all desired plan is revealed, it is proposed to carry it out, regard-loss regard-loss regard-loss of consequences, nor do they propose propose to stand upon the order of its en actment. Democrats are to be counted out and Republicans put in until the majority is sufficiently safe beyond all risk, and then the work will begin, the screws tightened and all the weak, kneed whiupod into line. When the McKinley bill was up in tho House Ben Butterworth made a good Democratic speech against it. He characterized it as a measure that would make people pay more for every thing than they pay now, exposed its shortcomings and evils, and yet upon its passage Mr. Butterworth could not resist party pressure and actually voted for the bill against which he had said so much in debate. He hopes to see the meusure amended in the Senate, Senate, but the party lash will be applied there, and although there may bo an outburst of honest indignation, the ro- ro- suit will be the same, 'and the bill passed by. a strict party vote. Only on day before yesterday Mq Teller gave expression to views on the silver bill, greatly1 at variance witU-those witU-those witU-those of his party in the Senate, tearing tearing it literally to pieces, and yet on its passage he will be found voting with the majority. And so it will be with the election law. There are a number of Republicans Republicans who oppose the high handed scheme, but they will fall into line and give their vote if not their hearty and willing support. Hence this kicking out of traces amounts to but little, and is all for the ears of watchful constituents who are, iu many instances demanding the defeat defeat of the tariff and the silver bills now before Congress. The people have almost learned that the only hope of relief is through the Democratic party, which is the party of the people and which always is in favor of legis lation granting the greatest good to the greatest number. Let the Democratic Democratic party stick to the old land mark, remain united upon all fundamental questions of governmental policy, and success awaits it They are having a hot time id South Carolina politics just now, and "Oh, the pity of it Iago," the row is all within the Democratic ranks. If the South Carolina Democrats should profit by the example of those in Ala bama, all will be well. Birmingham Age-Herald. Age-Herald. Age-Herald. This can only mean that our Bir mingham contemporary disapproves Tillman and his class movement in South Carolina. Why does it disapprove disapprove in that State that which it approved approved and aided in this? Last Sun day it double-leaded double-leaded double-leaded this: uTo the 50,000 (whew!) Alabama farmers who are weekly readers of the Age-Herald, Age-Herald, Age-Herald, we have a word to say: It was a good fight you made, a fair, honest, honora ble fight of the farmers; one they had a right to make, one we honor them for making." Maro Antony in his famed funeral oration had a great deal to say about a noble cause and honorable men, in the hope of boosting himself in publio opinion. But his campaign clap-trap clap-trap clap-trap only caused a temporary tumult The people soon found him out and seeing that he was the same old selfish, scheming demagogue, did not make him their demigod. The Age-Herald's Age-Herald's Age-Herald's opinion on the South Carolina situation is a dead give-away. give-away. give-away. Whero is that Providence that watches over children and another class?
