The most successful gathering of
club women in the history of Arizona
was the ninth annual convention of
the Federated Women's clubs which
convened last week in Prescott.
The Phoenix delegation, consisting of
Mrs. Euwurd Kent, Sr., Mrs. Joseph
Kibbey, Mrs. B. A. Fowler, Mrs. Wal
ter Bennett, Miss Sharlot Hall, Mrs.
W. S. Goldworthy, Mrs. G. M. Gage,
Mrs. Thomas Wallin, .Mrs. H. II. Mc
Xoil. Mrs. T. M. Elder and Mrs. D. H.
Burtis. assembled at the depot Tues
day morning, expecting to be joined
there by the Tucson delegation, but
owing to a deluy on the main line
the members of that delegation when
they awoke Tuesday morning expect
ing to view the attractions of Mari
copa, were surprised and chagrined
to find that they were yet in Tucson,
trie sleeper having not changed its po
sition since the previous evening.
However. Miss Mary Post of Yuma,
the oldest and at the same time the
youngest club woman in Arizona, was
on hand, and journeyed to the "mile
high city" with the Phoenix women.
Automobiles provided by the Mon
- day club conveyed the delegates to
the . Congress hotel, where the Phoe
nix delegation who did notv islt
friends were quartered.
Wednesday morning found the
southern delegates in attendance at
the convention, which was held in the
ball room of the Yavapai club, with
the president, Mrs. idney Carlton
Xewsom, presiding in a most admira
ble and pleasing manner.
Mrs. Xewsom's executive ability.
coniDineu with her many other charm
ing qualities, won for her the ad
miration and esteem of all who at
tended the convention.
The president of the Monday club,
-urs. n. Meek, called the conven
tion to order. After all hud joined
heartily in singing "America," Rev.
Mr. Jeukins of the Episcopal church
of Prescott offered invocation.
Everyone who is personally ac
quainted with the mayor of Prescott
knows how loth he is to "speechify,"
so the delegates were really not in the
mood to question when former Attorney-General
E. S. Clark very elo
quently and cordlully bade them wel
come to proud, princely and progres
sive Prescott, the city noted, very
justly, too, throughout the entire
southwest for the hospitality and
geniality of its citizens.
Mr. Edwards, president of the Ya
vapai club, welcomed the delegates to
Prescott's club house and presented
to them the freedom of the building
and its contents, only excepting its
members who. he confided to the
visitors, were all appropriated that
were worth while, but that matter
the delegates did not investigate, as
they had but two misses in the dele
gation. Each one or those lonely
men. of course, assured the delegates
of their sympathy and interest in the
work being done by the Arizona Fed
They could not have done other
wise, but the visitors knew they
meant every word of it.
Mrs. Meck's cordial greeting was as
gracious and beautiful as brief, while
the response made by Mrs. Wright
of Tucson was a go mor beautifully
expressed gratitude, appreciation and
Mrs. Xewsom's address to the con
vention followed and was filled with
valuable suggestion?, all of which
tended toward strengthening the state
federation. Indeed, it is the presi
dent's chief purpose to bring alxmt
by every means possible a better un
derstanding of the state organization
and its purposes. She has accom
plished much toward that end and
perhaps next Xovembor there will be
no year books unread.
Mrs. W. It. Gabriel was physically
unable to attend and her report not
arriving until the following morning
the delegates were not officially seat
ed until the next morning's session.
Tiie sympathy of the club women
goes out to Mrs. Gabriel in her af
fliction. Mrs. S. E. Empcy sent some very
interesting notes on the nineteen hun
drcn ten biennial, which were so
greatly enjoyed that the secretary
was Instructed to write Mrs. Empey
expressing the appreciation of the
convention for the glimpses she gave
us of the great May convention.

ocrats of West Virginia for the long
term sonatorahin, who went to Cin
cinnati to offer terms to the fifteen
"self exiled" republican state sen
ators, failed in his mission according
to .advices received tonight.
It appears that Governor Glasscock

showed that the Arizona Federation
has twenty-one clubs or a total
membership of about 700 women.
very Interesting talks. Dr. Walluce
urged that the various clubs co
operate for the benefit of the public.
The Xao. club and the Flagstaff , wlth local ,,,1V4iic,ims aIU, heaUh of
club have dropped out, and the Col
legiate and the Conservation clubs
have taken their places. The reports
of some of the remote clubs were pa
thetic almost, so desperately are they
struggling for existence. Yet it Is
often darkest just before dawn. The
Glendale club had but three working
members some months since, now its
report was so excellent and its plans
so well formed that this club was
voted the "Banner club of the year."
The Phoenix Woman's club Is the
most pretentious club in Arizona,
leading in membership and club funds.
Ths Phoenix Harmony club rendered
a very excellent report showing that
this club is altruistic in the highest
The Friday club was represented by
its president, Mrs. Walter Bennett,
who told of the study work of the
year, und in addition related the
story of the founding of the Phoenix
city library, which was the work of
The Conservation club of Phoenix
is the newest club in the federation,
and its plans of work were briefly
spoken upon by Miss Sharlot Hall.
The convention missed Mrs. War
ren of Tucson and Mrs. Crouse of the
same city, who has long been at the
head of the Health league of Arizona.
Mrs. Crandall, the cheery story
telling ex-secretary, and Mrs. Lemm
Drais, who labored so faithfully for
the Florence club, have passed Iwyond
our recall since our last convention.
Rev. Mr. Gunnett of the Children's
Home Society of California spoke
briefly of his work "The homeless
child for the childless home."
A plan was presented whereby the
federation can co-operate with Mr.
Gunnett in his great work of saving
Very many serious promises were
made while listening to the inspiring
paper on "A Civic Awakening," by
Mrs. B. A. -Fowler, who left the
slogan "Do it for Arizona."
That recalls the watch word given
by the federation president "Twenty
five clubs before tfie next conven
tion." All regretted the absence of Mrs. 1C
W. Williams of Williams, who is now
visiting in Kentucky. Her paper was
excellent and was read by Mrs. Ad
ams of Williams.
At the close of the first day's ses
sion the delegates were taken to the
Pioneers Home a beautiful building,
well furnished and almost ready to
be formally opened. Major A. J.
Doran, in charge, showed the vis
itors through through the commo
dious lobby, a living room, with its
table, great chairs and huge fire
places; through the bed chambers
with their substantial furniture and
bright rugs; through the dining room,
kitchen and hospital ward.
But best of all was the mngnifi
fent view from the broad veranda,
where in the coming days, the old
heroes will gather to exchange thrill
ing stories of the long ago. This
group, which one may see in the
mind's eye, would not be quite com
plete without a touch of the fem
inine. So it was hoped that if there
are some worthy, yet destitute pio
neer women in Arizona that they be
domiciled without delay in this, their
Mrs. B. A. Fowler, Mrs. Joseph
Kibbey and Miss Sharlot Hall were
appointed to confer with Governor
Sloan regarding the interpretation of
the law covering tills question.

ing above it and that can very prop
erly be furnished fiy Arizona's chil
dren a tribute from youth to age.
Individual clubs will endeavor to
interest local school boards In gath
ering a fund for its purchase.
The meeting of the presidents and
vice presidents was interesting but
one-sided. The club ills were recount
ed but the remedies were not pre
scribed. Dr, Agnes McGee Wallace gave two
fleers, and urged that the crying
need of Arizona, is purer and better
Dr. Wallace strongly advocated a
more rigid meat inspection and rec
ommended that there be a monthly
inspection of school children. She
reported that Prescott had done away
with the source of infection, the gen
eral pencil box In our public schools.
Mrs. Cleveland astonished the con
vention by the statement that Pres
cott has lxtught more Ked Cross seals
this year than any other city in the
United States. Thirteen hundred dol
lars' worth having been bought to
ward the million dollar fund now be
ing raised for the prevention and
cure of the great white plague.
The subject of establishing through
the federation, scholarships for girls,
aroused much enthusiasm. Mrs. Xew

the university at Tucson who were
leaving school because they have not

So interesting were the cases that

the other in the University.
The symiMsium "Federation Quer

ed the fact that the federation h-ai-tates
to venture upon untried jNiths.
Many private teas, luncheons, etc..
wore gh-en during the visit in Pres
cott but chief among the social af
fairs was the receptions given by the
Monday cljib, in the ball room or
the Yavapai club. In honor of the
Arizona Federation of Women's clubs.
After presentations had been made
a brief program in which Mrs. II.
L. Southworth. Mrs. Harry Heap and
Miss Wells participated was greatly
enjoyed. Eacli of these ladies is a
talented cultured artist in her par
ticular line of entertainment. Mrs.
Southworth's readings are so diversi
fied and so artistically interpreted
that she is always a delightful enter
tainer, moving her audience to tears
or laughter at her pleasure.
About three hundred Prescott peo
ple were present at this reception to
meet the visitors, listen to the de

hour spent in social conversation or

However, as might be expected, the
crowning event of the convention was
the address of Mrs. Xewsome which
was given in the Congregational
church Friday evening.
Mrs. Xewsome showed that wo
men's clubs were intended in the be
ginning for study purposes, but as
time passes there are more and more
educational institutions open to girls
and women's clubs have become more
and more public service clubs. With
S00.000 women interesting themselves
in the betterment of humanity, it is
but a consequence that juvenile
courts have been established; scholar
ships founded; schools provided in
dustrial, trades and vacation schools;
art museums endowed; better laws
enacted; forests saved: and many
other things accomplished.

London, Jan. 22. Sir Thomas Lip
ton this evening told of an attempt
made against him at '.lis country place
by a man believed to be a maniac. "It
was the most unpleasant surprise of
my life." said Sir Tnomas. "A tele
phone message told me that Detective
Inspector Woldron would call to see
me about some forge.l contracts that
had been passed at Euston Station. A
few minutes later the alleged inspector
came and was shown into the billiard
room. He was well dressed and well
spoken, and I shook hands with him and
said, 'How are you, inspector?' He
asked, 'Are you alone?" Then I told
him to sit down, but he Insisted upon
"'He said, 'You are a rich man; you
must help me.' He whisked out a razor.
I went up to him, put my hand on his
shoulder and said, "My dear fellow,
don't get excited. Of course I shall be
pleased to do anything 1 can for you.'
"'He replied, 'Thanks. i'ou have
saved me from suicide.'
"Thereupon lie threw the razor on a
billiard table. I walked to the door
saying, 'Excuse me; there's the tele
phone. I will be back ir. a minute.
"I slipped out of the door and sent
for the police, and when they came
I asked them to pretend to look at the
pictures. They walked nbout the room
admiring the pictures until they got
close, when they pounced upon the man
and placed him under arrest."
Sir Thomas added that he did not in
tend to prosecute, as it was obviortST
that the man was a lunatic. The prfa i
oner was subsequently removed to the
insane ward at the workhouse.
Los Angeles, Jan. 22. Immigration
officers patroling the bluffs a few
miles south of Santa Barbara early
this morning encountered what they
believed to be Chinese smugglers from
the raft which the cutters Bear and
Orient are pursuing. They heard a
launch and saw men along shore.
They ordered tlx m to stop, but they
ran away and shots were exchanged.
The men escaped. The officers, later,
failing to receive a resMnse from a
Chinese gardener, broke in his door
and captured Quan YIck, who was
then breathless. While they were
talking to him two others ran out and
were fired at, but escaped. It is be
lieved that some were wounded. Th
coast is now being jmtroled. A rigid
watch is being kept in the Mexican
line. The smuggling craft was reported
chased by cutters during the night,
but escaped, aided by a fog and durk-ness.

Death Result of Natural Causes After
Fight With Guard.
Washington, Jan. 22. Through the
misunderstanding of orders or by a
reckless disregard of necessary rules
and precautions, foreign born work
men without actual experience in
mining often imperil the lives of
trained and experienced workers, ac
cording to a bulletin made oublic by
the bureau of labor. The figures cited
are principally for the decade ending
with the year 130S, in which fatal ac
cidents in coal mines was at the rate
of 3.11 per thousand employes. In
the western section . (Colorado. Xew
Mexico and Utah) they were 6.4 per
1000; in the Pacific coast section
(Washington and British Columbia)
" per 1000.
"Mining methods in the United
States," says the report, "are often
crude and known safety precautions
are either disregarded or not used."
