THE COIJRIEE-JOUENAL, LOUISVILLE, SUiNJDAY J1UJKJS:1JN'G, OCTOBER 27, 1901. SECTION 4 REMOVAL Of An Alabama County Seat. HOW IT WAS ACCOMPLISHED. TVHAT ONE KAN'S DETERMINATION BROUGHT POBTH. OUTWITTED HIS OPPONENTS. In a Ecv.- Hours the Records and Property of Baldwin County Were Transferred TO rOWN 03? BAY HINETTE. rCori cspnd. uc "f the Courier-Journal. 1 Buy Miiieue. Ala., Oct 2!. "or the past low month? the traveler on the Louisville ami Nashville road. passing through tiie town of Pay Mlr.ctte, in Southern Alabama, has doubtless been surprised to see in that little town one of the finest courthouses in the South. Jt is a magnificent pressed brick building, trimmed in granite, and is of the most modern and approved architecture. Baldwin county Is the largest county in the state of. Alabama, bavins an area of 1,020 square miles, or a little larger than the State of F.ho.ic Island, but it is sparsely settled. The county seat is (r was until a few days ago) located at the town of Daphne, on Mobile Bay, In the southern part of the county, making it a two-days' journey for the north-end Ealdwiners to set to the county seat. At intervals, for many years, the question of removing the county seat was discussed, but ft always met with such strong opposition from the people in the southern end ot the county, and especially the Daphne crowd, that it was abandoned. Enter Mr. Hand. A few years ago Mr. J. D. Hand moved into r.aid-.vin county from North Alabama. Ho had a few thousand dollars and a surplus of energy and perseverance. He engaged In tiie timber business on a big scale and made money last, lie invested In timber lands and noon owned many thousand acres cround the town of Hay Mir.ette. About n year ago, wher. the question of the removal of the county seat was agitated again, he announced to tiie people that if they really wanted the courthouse moved to Bay Mlnette that lie would remove it. and from that hour the fun began. Hand had never failed Jn any proposition he had undertaken, find It was said, not oniy by the opposition, but by many of his friends, that lie had at last met his Waterloo. Pight In Legislature. The fight began in the Legislature find was hard and bitter. Had It not been for "Nervie" Armstrong. Hand's chief supporter, the proposition would certainly have been deleated. Armstrong was on the ground night and day. from start to finish, and the bid finally passed and was approved on February 5, 1?01. The bill authorized the building of a courthouse at liay Minette. and created a Board of Commissioners to remove tiie furniture and fixtures from the courthouse and jail nt Daphne upon the completion of the buildings at Bay Mir.ctte. Injunction Secured. The Daphne citizens secured an Injunction, thereby bloc-king the sale of county bonds, but this did not disturb Hand in the least, he placed $.")0.0u0 in the hands of the committee and told it hem to go ahead with the building. An architect named Smith, of Montgomery, drew the plans, and Col. Pohson took the contract, with an agreement to have the buildings completed by October 15. The corner-stone was laid on the 4th of Ju'.v. and from that litre on the work -was rushed day and night, th- ..tj-ct being to have tile courthouse ivndy for occupancy for the October r-.rm !' court m October IS. As the iitait drew r. -ar the race became m-'te exciting. The 3!aphno people wet-, in high spa-its. and paid that Hand would have to occupy the new c-uir; h-'tis-- as a dwelling. Time tv.,s getting pivei itts, some of the material was d-kiye.l. Armstrong was pent up th-1 road to dr.d mid hurry it up, and he did. lie brought It in hitched to a limited, pas.--.-r.g--r train at the rate of eixty miles nil hour. Both Sides Uncertain.

Just the first rays of the sun were taking their morning lath in the beautiful .Mob:!-? I-'ay. (VI. Hand with an advance gimrd. of his army, entered Daphne, and surprised tiie early risers of that town by their very untimely appearance. They drove straight to tiie Courthouse and summoned hoiiiY Bryan. Mr. Hand informed him that tiiey had come to move the C-mr: house, the Sheriff looted at Hand and asked him if. he was soins to take it in his bug-gy. "No, I guess I can't let you move it today, Mr. Hand; some other dav, perhaps." replied the Sheriff. Just at this time C. E. Maries walked up and informed theSheriff that he had a prisoner that lie desired to turn over to him, and handed him Justice Day's mittimus. The Sheriff glanced at the paper, and turning to Hand. said. "Good-bye, Mr. Hand, I am sorry to disappoint you, come to see us again." He turned with the prisoner and started to the jail. Hand and .about a dozen of the boys followed and when the door was unlocked, they all walked in. The Sheriff did nut see the chisels and hammers that were oonceriled on and about their persons, or he might have suspected some thin?:. Then another ;tiort dialogue occurred between Hand and the Stic-rlff. "Gentlemen you must walk out, or I will be compelled to lock you in," said the oilirer. "AII right," said Hand, "that is exactly what we expected you to do." "Work Begins. No sooner had the Sheriff locked the door, than Hand said. "Now boys get to work, and let us see how ejuiekly you can take this .iail to pieces." Kight of these voluntary prisoners were professional ft-.vl cutters, who had been secured especially for the work. As the heads began tody from bolts, and hinges were unje-inted. the Sheriff saw the mistake he had made. He demanded that they desist, and begged them to quit. Hearing an unusual noise in the Courthouse be cast his eye in that direction, and the scene that met his vision almost froze the blood la his veins. Wagons were bached up to every window, and clu-.ii-s. desks and beoks were pouring through the open windows. Ev. ry movable thing in the Court hou.-v 'js carried out and placed In wagons, fiom Judge's desk to spittoons. Sheriff Starts To Mobile. The Sheriff could stand it. no longer, and started to Mobile, for a lawyer-and an injunction. The various offices were dcfurnlslu-d in turn, the Circuit Clerk's boo'.ts, papers and in tact even-thing to the inkstand went into wagons. It was Setting late in tile afti r:i.iii, only an hour remained in which to move the Probate Judge ami Tax Collector's belongings, but the men wrought with renewed energy. Too Late. Sheriff Bryan was only a few leagues from shore, armed with, an injunction and clothed with the proper Implinients of his ollice, Capt. O'Neal was at the helm and the good steamer Heroine was breaking her record against time. But the way those removers hustled court records, stationary and desks out of that courthouse would have given a cyclone a close race. Just as the clock on the steeple struck -1, the steamer Heroine, with Sheriff Bryan on board, rounded in to the Daphne wharf. But alas at the same moment the last wagon laden with the jail ami courthouse furnishings pulled out of the courthouse yaid. And as this strange procession of a courthouse on wheels, with Col. J. L. Hand, seated on the tail gate of the last wagon, with Baldwin county's great seal in Ills arms and a broad smile on his face, passed over the hill and out on the main road, to the new home of the institution and its ollicers nt Hay Mlnette. Sheriff Bryan, with hat in one hand and injunction in the other, rushed upon the scene. "When lie saw the cage was empty well, he just swtire. MANIAC RUNS AMUCK IN WISCONSIN VILLAGE.

The coaching systvm here did not eeom to have quite the same directness and practicability as the coaching svstem at Yale. Tliis se.-med to be partly due to the immensity of the squad. When tht; line-up practice began some fifty nun were sitting on the side lines. Two trains were selected, and when a new man was wanted It-id would call fcr candidates for the position. 1'or instance, upon the retirement of a half-back, a e.;ll for a half-back would bring a dozen eager men to their feet, from whom one would be sekcted.

INDORSES NATIONAL HORSE SHOW ASSOCIATION. JTevr York Eider and Driver Hakes Some Suggestions For Its Government. The New York Rider and Driver, in a rent issue, indorses the action of the various horse show associations in taking stps to form a national organization. On O. -toiler 1 oHIeurs of a numbrr of associations held a meeting here and arrangt-d to orgamhv a natbuial association for the bene lit of ail. The paper, in discussing the meeting, says: "The prel.minary steps taken at Louisville at the recr-nt horse show htM in that city, looking towards the formation of a national hore show association, is a movenitni .-f transcendent Impo:tan:e.th"-t has often been advocated by us in these columns. No live stock exhibitions of any kind have developed the interest which has niLirkcil the progress of this enterprise from its inception." "The n-cessity and advantage of a National IbkVse Show Association are so manif'st that the vender is its urganiza-ti-:i iuis hetr. so long decayed. There ;d a:, present no rode of rubs of a genera' sc.'pe governing exhibitors, or exhibits, at the different shows, and tho exhibitor at one show dues not know whether his exhibits will be eligible at fomo othi-r place where he desires to iii. ike entries. One of thu. worst features dev-doped by the chaotic state in which th horse show industry now languishes is the matter of judging. Tiie ollice of judge at tlit-so shows Is of the utmost importance, as upon tlu- fairness and unswerving lidelity of these otheials depend the success and well-being of the associations. A nationiil organization should bo perfected, at once, a evde of rules applicable to all shows within its jurisdiction should he adopted, and when this is accomplished, gentlemen o the highest standing and experts- in the art of determining the merits of the ditTerent classes of horses provided for by tiie rulub. should be app dated ;ls judges, and t '-.-'.-e judg-s should b.-- require d ;o at-tei-d nnv show as directr-! by the proper o!h;'--rs of tiie asseelation. ;'.nd be fairly ("Ui.pensatt d for their time in .at ten-1-;ng the meetings to which they mnv be as:gned."

Secretary Farnell was instructed to "notify all tho clubs in the organization w h o h a v e mo re than fourteen pi ay e ra on their reserve kst, that the number must be reduced to comply with tho new national agreement Immediately. Tho board also passed a rule to the effect that the release of no player from a club shall be valid unless the release is signed by the president of the releasing club. A rule was also passed making tt necessary to file the names of all signed play, ers with the secretary of the. National As-fiociatiou of Professional Baseball Leagues. A resolution was passed making tho farming out of players punishable. Tho penalty is. to be iixed by the National iioaru. On the National Board a rule was enacted making it compulsory for each club to pay its protection of the fee before January of each year. Tho magnates also adopted a form of contract for all the various leagues in the. organization. The new contract is almost identical with the old form used in the National League. When the matter of adoption of an official ball came up it was decided to aJ'.ow each league to choose its own ball. Tho last business transacted was tho classification of the. various leagues. Class A will include the Eastern and Western leagues: Class B has in it the Southern and Western Associations, the New York State League, the New England League and the I. I. I. league. In Class C are the Paid tic National League and the C'":iee:icut State League. There are no :izations tnus far in Ciass D. penalized several times for off-side p.ay and holding.

Manuai rine Unable To Withstand the Onslaughts of the High School Backs. MUCH ENTHUSIASM IS SHOWN. GAIN the purple waves proudly over the crimson, and the High School eleven has added another to its long list of brilliant victories. Tho crimson went down in de feat yesterday only after a stubborn contest, in which foot by foot the turf wa3 disputed. A glorious day dawned for the boys, and everything was auppicioo- for their sport. The air seemed surely nrd with the excitement Incident t a great football game, and the boys had their hopes keyed up to a high pitch. The colors of the two institutions were much in evidence frcm early morning. Gay ribbons, betokening partisanship, fluttered from the bre-ats of those who thronged the streets. As the time, drew near for the contest banners purple and gold or crimson gathered to themselves supporters as they were carried to the scene of the mimic battle. At the park the sight was one of animation. The grand-stand was filled with women and girls, who flaunted their colors in the breezes. At cne end the stand was a mass of crimson in the center and at the other end was a profusion of purplo and gold. Knthuslastic sweethearts and sisters cheered their favorite teams in hope of inspiring them to victory, and right well and gallantly tho op posing sides clashed together in quest of that honor. Fuily fifteen hundred people fenced in tho side lines of the gridiron by 3 o'clock, and from here and there rang out tho yells of the schools as the rooters vied with each, other in their clamorous contest. At 3 o'clock the elevens jogged out upon the field amid the applause of the assembled throng A few minutes were spent in the warming-up process while the prelirninarv arrangements were leing carried on by the captains. At last the referee's whistle sounded and the play was on. Capt. Kaynes had won fiie toss, and chose to guard the west goal, with the wjnd at his back and the sun In his opponents' eyes. Thenceforth the contest was waed with stunnom determination, and each bit of ground was yielded under protest. During the first half it seemed a match of equals, though at times, when it seemed High Schools were getting a nice lead, a costly fumble rob them of their mead. Tho nr,i,1(-AnkTK were about equally matched in weight with the purple wearers neavler in the lino and the crimson heavier in the hack lielU. Lp and down the field the toilers P. -Ii" ? ' xvhen tne Joskin would get uncomfortably near a goal a well-diren ed kick would send it soaring toward tho other limit. Many pretty runs were made, and to some extent it was a punt, ers game In catching punts the Manuals excelled, but their opponents' infe-rion.y in this respect was not costlv Many, ir.nr.v times thn iwii s.de to side because the bail could not be advanced live yards in the downs. The play in the first half was nervous and snappy, but in the second half the Manuals seemed to be getting winded, and much time was lost while the High School coach, after he saw tho game was sarely won. constantly relieved his men by putting in substitutes to take the place or the regular players. Entirelv too much scrapping was done at the audience's expense, and the teams wern severely criticized for not allowing the captains and ofhcials to settle all disputes. After twenty-five minutes of hard play in two halves tho game ended with a score of 17 to 0 in favor of the High School. The purple had won its third victory for the season, and for the third time the crimson had been unable to score agamt their opponents. Tiie High School svm-pathlzers went wild with delight as each touchdown was made, but when the end came and Manual had been unable to score their enthusiasm knew no bounds and the sky was filled with hats and waving (lags and coats and canes and umbrellas and articles of almost all description. With three cheers for their def cited rivals tho M. H. S. team left the field while the conquered wearers of the crimson sought their tent. The score of the victorious team was not so large to render the Thanksgiving contest hopeless for the vanquished eleven. In fact, each team has nearly an equal chance to win the final game. Tho Manuals defeat probably was due to their Inability to hold against the continuous battering of th. purpie s oacKs, wniie the High ecaooi s success was conslc'er.'thl;- due to their fine Interference, which formed rap-Idly al.out the runner and shielded him af.-ai:it the tackles.

Haynea adds three vards more. The right tackle is called back for a line buck, and in going through the line the pigskin drops and the purple quarterback (Zapp) falls on it. Manly carries It around left end for twenty-five vards before he is thrown. On the next'plav the ball is fumbled and Monroe is on "it in an instant. The crimson backs try a double pafp, but Atkinson gets the runner and throws him back for no gain. For three successive downs they fail to gi:i their distance, and Capt. .Manly'? men get thf oval. Manly gains one yard. Bernard one yard, and then Manual's line cannot be pierced, and again the bail changf?.
