A MIGHTY FOREST
Consolidation of tho San
This gave to Arizona One of the
largest Forest Reservations in
the Country This Blessing on
the Salt River Valley Has Been
Brought Down Largely Through
the Efforts of W. J. Murphy.
Washington. Jan. 12. The Sin
Francisco mountain reserve of Arizona
has been solidified. An agieemcnt has
been reached between the government
and the Individual owners of the old
sections In the reserve by which th.
government recovers Its title to all
this land In lieu of other lands ex
This completes a reserve of nearly
two million acres and guarantees
adequate protection to the magnificent
forest and the conservation of the wat
crn that feed the Verde and Salt river.
The value of this action to the people
or the Salt Itlver valley cannot ba
overestimated. It not only will be of
great benefit' to their water system
but will give a great Impetus to the
water, storage movement and will en
courage the establishment of Indus
tries In the valley that rely upon an
adequate water supply for success.
The creation of this reserve U due
largely to the efforts of W. J. Murphy,
of Phoenix, who has spent many .weuks
hero In the effort to unify conflicting
Interests and prevail upon the secre
tary of the lnt rlor to make the de
sired ruling. What looked like a hope
less task finally was straightened out
today 1n a manner satisfactory to all
concerned and Secretary Hitchcock af
fixed his signature to the agreement,
thereby putting an end to all dis
putes over this vital question.
Under this ruling Arizona's total
foreit reserve embraces nearly live
million acres which Is surpassed by
but few reserves In the sntlre country.
Secretary Hitchcock and Commissioner
Hermann of the general land office
deserve the thanks of the people of the
Salt Itlver valley for their broad guae
action In this matter.

HALF OF IT SOLD AS BUTTER.
Estimate Regarding the Production of
Washington, Jan. 12. Repres;nta
tlvc Wadsworth of New York mado a
brief statement today before the senm:
committee on agtlculture, concerning
reflections made upon 'the minority re
port on the oleomarganlne bill In the
house. At the hearing yesterday Mr.
H. C. Adams, dairy commissioner for
the 'state of Wisconsin and Secretary
.Knight of the National Dairy union,
atated tint they were not correctly
represent In that report. Mr. Adams
denied that he had said that the pur
pose of the pending bill Is to stop the
manufacture and sale of oleomargarine
entirely, but Mr. Wadsworth contend
ed In his statement today that this was
his language. He said the remark had
been taken down by a member of the
committee, when madi, because of Its
bluntness. He also said the letter
which Mr. Knight had pronounced a
forgery was still In existence and would
be produced If necessary.
Mr. Adams relteial'ed his denial, say
ing 'hat he had said only that the
purpoce of tills bill was to stop the
manufacture of oleomargarine "colored
In Imitation of butter."
John Hamilton, s-vcrel.nry of agricul
ture of Pennsylvania, advocated the
passage of the bill, contending that tho
fact that chemical analyses of oleomar
garine show It to contain the same In
gredients as butter do not render It
equally palatable and healthful. He es
timated that B0 per cent of the oleo
margarine manufactured Is sold as
butter, and said the farmers of Penn
sylvania alone derive an Income of
about $18,000,000 a year from the butter
sold by them.
Dairy commissioner Blackburn ot
Ohio said he had ftonind It almost 1m
poslble to successfully prosecute In
fractions of thu oleomargarine law In
the large cities of Ohio owing to the
partiality of s;m3 ieople for that pro
duct, because of Uha Influence ot the
oleomargarine dealers with the press,

MB. WEILBR'S STATEMENT
Regarding the Condemnation of Meat
in His Market.
Regarding an article published In The
Republican yesterday morning con
cerning the condemnation of some
meat; at a butcher shop by the health
ofllcer, the proprietor of the shop, Mr.
A. Weller, called at Tho Republican
oillce last, night to correct such stote
lnents as concerned him. As was said,
he says he bought a steer of Li'on
P.ouvler and it was disabled, but Mr.
Weller denies that Us back was broken
bivthat It was paralyzed or In any
other -way hurt so as to affect thej
meat, une injury consisteu in tne
breaking of a cord, or tendon nt the hip.
This was done by a sudden movement
while the animal was fighting another
steer. The Injury, Mr. Weller said,
while disabling, could not have been
painful, since when he saw the steer It
was eating, drinking and chewing Its
cud In apparent contentment. He
said that Mr. Bouvier asked him $30 for
the steer, but he nally bought It for
$26. He killed It and dressed It him
self. It bled freely and the meat was
clean, bright and healthy looking.
He said that after ho had hung the
carcass up In his shop the health olll
cer. Dr. Hughes, came In anS asked
to see It. Mr. Weller paid he held a
candle up near It but the health officer
viewed it from a distance and pro
nounced it diseased and ordered It to
be destroyed. Mr. Weller then sent
for Dr. F. O. Richmond, tho veterinary
surgeon. When he came he cut Into
the carcass and after a careful examl;
nation, said that It was quite healthy;
that there was no Indication that the
animal was In a fevered condition at
the time It was killed, otherwise the
meat would have turned dark. Dr.
Wiley and Dr. Duflleld also examined
the meat and pronounced It absolutely
healthy and free from any appearance
of having been fevered before slaugh
ter. It Is said, though this Information
does not come from Mr. Weller, that
he Is threatening to bring a suit for
damages against the city for the con
demnation and destruction of the meat
and the attending spread of the im
pression' that he would offer diseased or
unhealthy meat for sale.
EED BOCK POUND
Progress of Exploration Work at the
Verde Dam Site.
Messrs. Hamilton and Helsler are In.
the city from the McDowell camp ot
the fcexloglcal survey. They report that
work Is progressing nicely and every
thing looks encouraging so far though
of course operations have but fairly
started. They are busy with surveys
and calculations as to the size of the
proposed Verde storage basin, the
water supply, etc.
Rorlng for bed rock is now going on
and bed rock has been located on one
side at the depth of twenty feet. But
one hole has thus far been sunk and
even that has not penetrated the bed
rock formation owing to tne springing
of tho plpu which necessitated a halt
and another start. The bed rock was
found slanting toward the stream
and It was at first thought that it
was but an angular point of rock
which could be broken off with pres
sure. When the force "was applied It
did not break off but proved to be a
solid granite formation and s? solid
was It that the attempt to go down re
sulted only In springing tho pipe.
It had to be withdrawn In order to
blast a flat surface large enough for
the drill to take hold when a stialght
pipe will be Inserted and the drilling
will proceed. Aftnr the character of
the rock Is fully determined the next
hole vwill be put down twenty feet dis
tant and S3 continue till the dam sit,
has been fully explored below. Addi
tional holes will then be put down be
tween the deepest of holes thus bored
In order that the very despest point to
bed rock -may be accurately deter
mln;d. It Is said by those who prutcnl
to be posted In such matters that the
finding of bed rock so near the surface
augurs well and unless the angle of
the formation U unusually great Its
deepest place probably will not be' over
thirty-five or forty feet. But at this
time Is only speculation and the whole
truth will be known befoie very long.
(The bedrock found In this first hole
Is granite of an excellent quality and
no better formation could be asked

five seconds until the entire audience
was converted Into a frantic mob.qvery
member of which was fighting for the
safety which lay beyond the doers of
the building. The 'hall is used for

ran, climbed and tumbled over the
chairs on the way to the doors.
Around the upper part of the hall

was broken through In a half a dozen
places by the pressure brought

On the main floor the crush was
much .worse than In the balcony. Tho

ones known to a majority of thoss
who frequent the place, are two doois

broader flight leading to the main door
of the Twelfth street front.
'Around these doiTS a fantlc -mob of
scrambling men, women and children
was packed , all struggling fiercely to
force their way down the stairs. At
the landing where the two flights ot
stairs -windings down from the malm
hall unite a woman etumbled and fell.
In an Instant a score of people were
down and before the rush was- over
