The city school board, the members
of jvhlch are Dr. L. D. Dameron,
Clinton Campbell and Sims Ely,
met last night and elected the staff
of teachers for the ensuing year.
There are thirty-six teachers in the
ordinary courste of study and four
special teachers of drawfng, domestic
science, manual training, and music,
respectively. It is expected that sev
eral additional teachers will have to
be employed in the fall to meet the
demands of the increased school pop

went no further than to employ the
There were several vacancies, caus
ed by resignation, and these were
filled from a list of perhaps a hun

of teachers who were re-employed:
D. F. Jantzen, (principal of
the Central building) ; Misses E. M.
Campbell, Stella McDaniel. Ethel B.

teacher of music.
A successor to Superintendent Stil
well has not yet been selected by the
board, but the members say there is
already in sight such a list of appli
cants thLt there will be no difficult
in selecting a high class man for
the position. It is recognized that the
superintendency of the Phoenix
schools is one of the most desirable
positions in the country, and applica
tions have been received from some
of the best educators in the United
For the next year the salary- of
the superintendent will be $3.nno. The
board decided to raise the salaries of
grade teachers to $S5 per month, an
increase of $10.
The board will meet again Satur
day night, when it is expected that a
statement will be given to the public
as to the views of the board con
cerning the need of new buildings. It
is well known that the schools are
already crowded to an unsanitary de
gree, and it is understood that some
twenty additional rooms will has-e to
be provided. As it will be Impossible
to complete the construction of new
buildings before the beginning of the
new school year, it will undoubtedly
be necessary to rent rooms for the
first part of the year to accommodate
the pupils properly.

BEETS LOOKING FINE R. P.
Davie said yesterday that the beet
crops of the valley generally are In
fine condition. A few were Injured
by the vater shortage but most of
them are just as nice as thev could
be and, he has a very hopeful view of
the finishing of the crop and the en
suing sugar campaign. Speaking of
the water supply at the factory, he
said he had ten wells now ready for
business and on Tuesday a test was
made of one of them. It threw 830,000
gallons of water during the day, wbUI:
is half the supply th.' factory vill need
during the campaign. If all tl.e 'veils
yield as abundantly he will have avail
able five times as much water a? will
be needed, whereupon it was suggest

confidence than the water question at
the factory now Inspires.
MELDRUM STILL CHAMPION
By defeating Frank Graham last
night in a pool game at the Pastime
parlors, by a score of 100 to 80, Jack
Meldrum still retains his ttle to
the local pool championship. Those
present at all the games say last
nighfs performance was the most
interesting 'of the series, Graham
leading almost to the last, when Mel
drum passed him with a big run.
There was a large attendance, and
among them about a score of ladies.
A prize was offered and secured by
Mrs. Jackson, to the lady guessing
the winner by the number of points
nearest to his majority score. The
prize was a gold hat pin. There
will be another game Friday night,
at which a similar prize will be of
fered and to which the public is in
vited. The contestant against Mel
drum then will be a Phoenix busi
ness man who until his appearance
in the contest will be known as the

The Department Does Not Accept the
Washington, D. C, May 21. (Special
Correspondence of The Republican)
Physicians throughout the country are
taking new Interests the controversy
over benzoate or soda since the re
port of the Remsen board was made
public. Dr. H. W'Wiley, chief chem
ist of the department of agriculture,
made an elaborate series of experi
ments with benzoate of soda, and
reached the conclusion that even min
ute quantities used in preserve foods
were detrimental to health. The Rem
sen board, which made a subsequent
investigation, failed to find conclusive
ly that benzoate of soda mixed with
food was deleterious to health, al
though some symptoms were noticed
that were not thoroughly understood.
On the strength of the Remsen board's
report the Pure Food commission gave
the food manufacturers permission to
use benzoate of soda In unlimited
quantities. Physicians In general are
not prepared to acept the Remsen re
port as the final word on the subject.
They hold to the opinion that, while
small dose of the drug may possibly
not be especially injurious to healthy
young men, there is no doubt that sim
ilar doses are likely to effect Invalids
and children to a considerable extent.
They also believe that, while there
might not be enough in any one con
dimental food to do great harm, the
danger is gravely increased by the
number of foods In which benzoate
of soda can now be employed. It has
already, been used successfully as an
embalming agent in ketchup, soups,
preserves, ample-butter, soda water.
syrups, jellies, etc. and it is believed
that it will replace boracic acid In the
embalming of roast beef, sausages
(both green and smoked), potted
tongue, ham and chicken, hamburger
steak, etc. Experiments are being
made to determine its availability to
replace formalderyde in milk and dairy
products. The use of formaldehvde
and boracic acid having been prohibit
ed by law, while that of benzoate of
soda is sanctioned, those manufactur
ers who formerly used the other chem
cials are turning toward sodium ben
Physicians are interested in the sub
ject because, while benzoate f soda
is an effective embalming agent, as is
demonstrated by the Egyptian mum
mies, which were preserved with ben
zoic acid. It is not an effective germi
cide, and does not kill the typhoid or
tubercular germs present in foods
where it Is employed. Moreover, its
use is especially injurious to Invalids
suffering from kidney trouble, for
benzoic acid, which is combined with
carbonate of soda, is an Irritant di
rectly affecting the kidneys. Many
physicians havp already declared they
will not permit those depending on
their advice, and especially those sus
pected of onranic trouble, to eat foods
containing this powerful drug. In this
connection, and significant of the rea
son why manufacturers desire to use
this preservative, the Journal of Amer
ican Medical Association, than which
there Is no 'ilgher authority, editori
ally says: "The assumption that ben
zoate of soc'a in foodstuffs is not de
leterious, based on the (Remsen)
board's experiments, is unwarranted.
Benzoate of soda is incorporated In
foods eitner to obviate the necessity
of clean'iness in preparation or to per
mit thi use of Inferior products. The
use of sodium benzoate to preserve
foodstuffs has been proved unneces
sary." It is significant that while the de
partmen of agriculture is prevented
from interfering with manufacturers
who use benzoate of soda tn their pro
ducts, it is still uttering its warnings
to people against chemical preserva
tives. In a bulletin just off the press
the use of so-called "preserving pow
ders," which are mainly" composed of
benzoate of soda boracic acid, formal
dehyde etc., is strongly denounced.
"There are a great many brands of
so-called1 "preserving powders' on the
market," says the repartmenfs bulle
tin. "These are sold not only under
advertised trade names but bv drug
gists and peddlers everywhere
ii is true mat tnese powders may
preven the decay of fruit or vegetables
but they also encourage uncleanly,
careless work, and in the hands of in
experienced persons may be danger
ous. While with small doses the In
flnence may not be apparent In an
adult in normal health, with a child or
invalid the effect mai' be of a serious
nature. The prover way to sterilize is
by means of heat and as this can be
done very easily and cheaply the use
of chemical preservatives in canning is
The same arguments were employed
by Dr. Wiley and the other govern
ment chemists against the use of ben
zoate of soda and other chemicals by
commercial packers of food.
Opinions of physicians as to the ef
fect of "embalmed" foods upon their
patients are being gathered from all
parts of the country with a view to
compiling them for future use when
the Association of State and National
Food and Dairy Departments Is ready
to report its conclusions on the con
flicting views of Dr. Wiley and the
government chemists, on the one hand,
and the Remsen board, on the other,
at the annual convention of the asso
ciation in Denver next August.
G. G. Norton, Who
Rough Rider, Comes
back as a
G. G. Norton, formerly of this city,
but who has- been marooned in Porto
Rico and Cuba ever since the Spanish
American war, has returned to this
valley with the intention of remaining
permanent. y. He lived here when
conditions were about the worst ever,
nevertheless there was still enough
goou in the situation to attract him
back again and now that conditions
are about as near ideal as they can
be on earth for one of his tastes and
ambitions, he proposes to make thi
his home. He is planning to go into
the nursery business somewhere In
the valley and will devote himself
largely to the growing of citrus trees,
in which he has had several years
experience in Cuba,
Mr. Norton and his two brothers,
Ollie and Edward, and a sister, Miss
Dorothy, came here in the nineties
and made their home on a small farm
on the Tempe road some1 distance be
yond the asylum, where the brothers
went into the nursery business. The
panic of the middle nineties was fol
lowed by a series of dry years and
With water shortage and money
scarce there was little doing here for
the nurserymen, or, it must be con
fessed for anybody else who had
desire to eat and wear clothes. Ollie
Norton left , the farm for Ann Harbor
where he began the study of medi
cine. Then came the Spanish war
and the three brothers joined the
rough rider regiment. G. G. and Ed
ward went from here with B troop
under Captain Mcdintock and Ollie
joined them later. Ollie was killed in
battle on the island of Cuba and
the other two went to Porto Rico
after the war, where they remained
until six years ago when they went
to a point twenty miles from the city
of Pinal del Rio and eighty miles
from Havana, in the province of
Pinar del Rio. and engaged in the
nursery business. Edward is still
there and doing well and will prob
ably remain in charge of that nurs
ery. G. G. Norton having acquired
rather more Cuban fever than his
system relishes has returned to boil
it out of him here. Their sister who
was known here as Miss Dorothy
Norton and who was a talented
musician, is married and lives in San
Asked concerning Americans, Amer
ican influence and the future of Cuba,
Mr. Norton says that the present con
ditions are quite hopeful. President
Pal ma he says was a patriot and an
honest man but he was advanced in
years and lacked the firmness neces
sary to deal with the Cuban people.
President Gomez while not more hon
est or patriotic is a younger and
more vigorous man and thus far
seems to be meeting the problems of
government quite successfully. The
natives occasionally require a vigor
ous example set and as in the case of
thn ta-n fnflniont rpvnlntinna Rinne
fcjomez administration began, they got
it. It depends entirely on whether
this policy can be and will be suc
cessfully carried out. The Americans
as well as the natives hope that it
will be and that the republic will
prosper, but all seem agreed that in
the event of another failure this
government will take charge again
and establish some kind of a per
petual protectorate. The patriotic
natives seem imbued with the idea
that their autonomy is now in the
balance and they must make a suc
cess or the present government or
lose their day in court.
Regarding American Jnfluence, Mr.
Norton said that he believed three-
fourths of the land Interests of the
island are now owned by American
capital, including the sugar planta
tions. American influence is quite
notable in the government, indirectly,
however, just as it should be, and if
the native government maintains its
willingness to profit . by the advice
and help of Americans all will prob
ably be well with Cuba.
