on "The United States as a World
Power." The lecture was given under
the auspices of the A. O. U. W. of
Prescott. a number of members of the
order being on the stage with the

With all the prestige and prominence
of the lecturer, aud with a strong and
popular secret society working for its
success, the opera house was little
more than half filled.
Captain Fern, of the boy militia
compauy, bad bis company lined up
in front of the opera house when Cap
tain Hobson arrived, and received
him with open ranks.
Major Burke who had been invited
to a seat on the stage in a neat little
address, named Governor A. O.
Brodie for chairman of the occasion,
and Governor Brodie introduced Cap
tain Hobsou to the audience in a
brief address, in which he paid a high
tribute to him both as a soldier aud
the representative of a high order of
As a preface to his lecture Captain
Hobson expressed his gratification at
being permitted to address a Prescott
audience, the towu which furnished
the first troops for the Spanish-Amer
ican war, the town from which the
brave Col. Brodie and Captain
O'Neill hailed. His reference to
these prominent soldiers of that war
was received with the greatest ap
plause. Captain Hobson then proceeded to
the discussion of his theme, and gave
some very interesting statistics in re
ference to the United States as com
pared with other nations. Statistics
in a public address as in a printed ar
ticle, as a rule, are very dry affairs,
but Captain Hobson has the happy
faculty of presenting them in a very
The central thought of the entire
lecture is an appeal for a navy of ade
quate proportions to the size of the
United States, and to its importance
in the affairs of the world.
His lecture throughout breathed
such an air of patriotism and Ameri
canism that any one hearing it having
even a spark of patriotism in his soul
could not help having it 'fanned into
flame. He portrayed the American j
citizen as the highest and best type of j
manhood, and the nation composed j
of such citizens, naturally as the
highest, best and purest on earth.
His pleas for a larger navy are very
able, pointed and convincing and can- !
not but be convincing to bis hearers i
and his lecture tour will no doubt
arouse public sentiment along this
He talked for about two hours, and !
was listened to with the most rapt at- 1
tention by the audience. That the
sentiments be expressed were fully
appreciated by the audience was
shown by the unstinted applause
which was frequently given him.
In giving statistics of the losses of
the civil war, he gave one of the most ,
beautiful eulogies on the union and
confederate armies that the writer has
ever listened to, extolling the valor of j
each, and referring to its being a war
of principle on each side, mistaken
though it was on the part of the
south. As Captain Hobson is a south- ;
erner himself, a native of Alabama.
the sentiments expressed on this sub
ject showed the intense Americanism
of the speaker.
At the conclusion of the lecture
Captain Fern lined up his boy sol
diers in front of the opera house and
escorted the naval hero to the hotel.
where he gave them a little talk and
the crowd which followed them rent
the air with cheers.
Two or three days ago Lockwood
Sturges, of the Prescott Steam Laun
dry, received a telergam from his wife
who is visiting with friends near
Peoria, in the Salt river valley, that
their little daughter. Pauline, had
been badly injured in a runaway. He
went down at once and found the lit
tle one very near death's door. It
seems that the gentleman with whose
family Mrs. Sturges is visiting was
hauling dirt and little Pauline and
one of his own children were riding
iu the wagon with him when the
horses became frightened and ran
away throwing tne man ana cnnaren
out of the wagon. When Pauline was
picked up she was found to be badly
injured but it is not known whether
the horse stepped on her or the wagon
struck ber on the bead but she was
hardly expected to live for two days.
When last heard from she was improv

the completion of the railroad has

near future to commemorate the com

everybody in Uisbee will attend.
