BREAKS HIS FIST OF
James Hall Experiences
Real Hunger And
Is Confident That He
Has Baffled His
(From Tuesday's Daily.)
James Hall, who for twenty-six long
days abstained from food in the hope
of curing his stomaph of a collapse that
was steadily reoUring him weaker as
the days- pasted, Sunday night took
food for the first time after his long
fast. He had passed twenty-six days
without partaking of any food, sub
bisting wholly upon water, which he
drank in large quantities, but in small
doses at frequent intervals. For the
first time since he undertook to adopt
this starvation theory to give his sto
mach an absolute rest, a genuine feel
ing of hunger came upon him Sunday
He retired as usual about half past
nine, but could rot sleep. When his
friend who is attending him came in
about an hour later, and asked Hall
how he felt, the latter replied that he
was hungry. His friend then urged
him to get up and eat something, but
he replied he would wait until morning.

Decision Is Given Upon
Right To Use Highway
As Toll Road In
(From . Tuesday 's Daily.)
What is known as the Bright Angel
trail, that for many months has been
the bone of contention between Super
visor Ralph H. Cameron of Coconino
county and the Grand Canyon railroad,
came in issue before Judge Sloan 'of the
federal court yesterday in the form of
action upon two temporary restraining
orders that had previously been issued.
Counsel representing both sides of
the controversy were in attendance, P.
J. Norton representing the company,
and Attorney Doe of Flagstaff caring
for the interest of Supervisor Camer
on. Tbe first temporary injunction had
been allowed to restrain the company
from interfering with the plaintiff in
his access to certain portions of the
grounds about the station in the Grand
Canyon. Upon this point the court
ruled that he would suspend the injunc
tion pending a time to have the affi
davits in the case presented and read.
He set August 24 as the day for this
The second injunction prayed for was
ordered set aside, it being a petition
on the part of the plaintiff for a rc-
straining order to prevent the railroad
company from using a portion of its
station grounds, the old Bright Angel
hotel, and its surrounding buildings.

Convention Was'Held At
Delegates From Unions
(From Tuesday's Daily.)
Twenty-eight members of the Ariz
ona State Union, Western Federation
of Miners met in Prescott in their sec
ond annual session as a territorial body.
Dougherty's hall was selected as their
place of meeting, and after a morning
session that lasted until the noon hour,
the body adjourned until early last
evening, when they finished their bus
iness, which was largely -of a routine
The apportionment of delegates was
based upon the size of each local union
within the territory, the. following or
ganizations being represented:
Unions of Jerome, McCabe, Walker,
Groom Creek, "Tiger Union" of Crown
King. Globe, Chloride, Snowball,
Gleason and Kofa. At the opening of
the meeting, John Gallagher of Mc
Cabe served as chairman, and Albert
Ryan in the capacity of secretary.
All matters taken up were based
upon the report of the executive com
mittee, made np of the president, vice
president and secretary of the organ
ization, together with three other sel
ected members, to act as an executive
board. The first matter of special in
terest to be noted in the report was
with reference to the increased mem
bership in the order during the past
year. According to the figures given,
it was shown that the territorial body
had increased 65 per cent since the
date of the last annual meeting, held
in Prescott last September. " This
j showing was freely commented upon,
and much interest displayed in its an
nouncement at the meeting.
Upon the matter of the -election of
officers for the ensuing "year coming to
an issue, John Gallagher of McCabe
was re-elected president Kenneth Clay
ton of Globe, vice-president; and Albert
Ryan of Jerome, secretary and treas
urer. The new executive board is
made up of the above named officials
and S. A. AVhipple of McCabe, George
Conlin of Walker, and Marion W.
Moore of McCabe.
Reference to the affiliation of what
is known as the "Industrial Work
ers of the World" with the Western
Federation of Miners was made in the
report of the executive board. It was
shown that at the national meeting held
in Chicago in July of' this year steps
were taken toward such affiliation, and
that the Western Federation of Miners
met this new organization half way.
The territorial body endorsed this
action, expressing the matter as fully
endorsing the installing of the Western
Federation of Miners as a part of the
Industrial Workers of the World.
During a discussion in the evening
the chief objects of the territorial or
ganization were explaine'd as to further
the. interests of ' the Western Federa
tion of Miners in Arizona; this object
in particular to be accomplished by the
payment of a per capita tax by all
members, which mast be devoted exclu
sively to the matter of 'organization.
By this is meant the revival of local
orders that need assistance and by the
organization of new unions wherever
opportunity may offer for such.
After carefully reviewing minor
matters, icd discussing in detail the
more important financial features of
the report sabmited by the exfc.riive
board, the session was" adjourned to
meet next vear at McCabe.

A Com Festival;
For many years it 'has been a plea
sant eustom of St, Mary's Guild to
hold monthly teas, charging a small
fee for a pleasant social afternoon,
at which music was usually a special
feature, and in this way collecting a
neat little sum which went toward
the improvement of the parish or the
paying off of small debts.
During the warm months, however,
the teas have been discontinued, but
on next Saturday evening the- members
of this organization will give a feature
so different from the ordinary program
that it will doubtless attraef many
people, and will be a corn festival at
Camp Bpauvoir, the hour for which
will be from C:30 until 8 o'clock.

A "oOO" game engrossed the atten

of scores discovered Miss Olive Fish
