THE BIBLE A SEALED BOOK.
At a trine when observers generally
throughout the country have been
forced to admit that the rising gen
eration is unacquainted with even
the salient facts of Biblical history,
and that the Bible is a sealed book
to hundreds of thousands of an older
growth, it is interesting, if nothing

There is in it, too, a sentimental in-
terest, for when this copy was still
ful monkish copyists' spent their days.
Today, such missals are as rare, al
most, as this Bible, the printing of
which sealed their doom as dissemin-
. to dethrone forever the ancient
art of the copyists.
And while Mr. Huntington buys
this rare volume, rich with its as
sociations, venerable with age, and
sybolical of the progress of humanity
and civilization, the great work there
in contained receives less and less at
tention. The story of the Patriarchs
and the Prophets, the Judges and the
Kings of Israel, grows less impressive
to the people because it is less
known. Children come into the world
grow into manhood and womanhood,
marry and die, never knowing that
beneath the covers of that ancient
book are the truths upon which rest
most of our knowledge of the ancient
world, and that therein lies the story
upon which is based the sublime
facts which give to our era its name.
They know nothing.
Our militant faith demands tha:
we shall preach the Gospel in foreign
lands, where "the heathen in his
blindness bows down to wood and
stone." but it does seem that here
among us, at home, there should be
some way to teach our own families
and our own people, if not what the
Bible means, at least the story that
it tells "how, in the beginning, the
heavens and the earth rose out of
chaos." If only as literature, there
should be a wider and more intimate
knowledge of the Bible, the sublimity
of whose description has never been
approached by the pen of man.
' Although the developments of the
last few weeks have had a discon
certing effect on the rank and file
of traders the patient confidence of
the finacial powers has remained un
broken. The Mexican situation is
being handled by President Taft in
such a way that it is believed that
European complications will be avoid
ed, and -there is every indication that
President Diaz of Mexico and the
Madero faction having declared an
armistice, will bring about an ad
justment of their differences by amie
able means. The Missouri Pacific
affair, which was at first viewed
with some apprehension by the bank
ing interests, is now looked at as
thoroughly satisfactory, inasmuch as
it seems assured that the Gould plans
for the rehabilitation will be amply
financed and the modification of the
domination of the transportation
facilities over a certain section of
the cotintry will tend to lessen the
outcry against monopoly.
The financial community and the
rairoads view tho Canadian reci
procity agreement very favorably and
tho passage of the agreement by the
House by a vote of 2G5 to 89 is look
ed upon as contributing to friendly
.action on the bill in the Senate. Pub
lic sentiment throughout the country
is most favorable to the measure,
and it is thought that this will exert
an additional influence in the higher
body toward furthering its passage.
It is becoming clearer all the time
also that there is a Very slim chance
of tariff legislation at the extra ses
sion of Congress and nothing would
do more to help a restoration of busi
ness conditions than the certainty
that we should not see a disturb
ance of existing tariff conditions.
The reports from the railways are
becoming more favorable and here
and there an increase in traffic is
seen in place of the decreases that
have been noted for some time. The
reports from the steel industry show
that an enormous amount of struc
tural steel is being contracted for, so
that there is a more hopeful feeling
in that direction. The copper indus
try is also coming in for more fav
orable comment and as expressed by
one of the leading producers, there
has been an altogether unwarranted
amount of pessimism regarding tho
copper situation. The authority re
ferred to said: "There has been a
decidedly pessimistic feeling toward
copper recently and predictions have
been freely made that tho metal
would decline to an 11-cent basis.
The statistics at the same time have
shown a large consumption and busi
ness abroad has been reported ex
cellent. The combined stocks on the
first of April were smaller than they
were a year ago notwithstanding an
increase of 30,000,000 pounds during
the first three months of this year.
The main cause of tho extremely pes
simistic tone of nearly all comment
was in the belief that the recession
in business which set in during the
last quarter of 1910 would proceed
and reduce the demand for the metal.
This has proved to be a fairly good
forecast so far as this country is con
cerned, hut consumption abroad has
been maintained at a high rate and
according to the annual Teport of
the General Electric company, there
are lines in this country using more
copper than ever.
"The low prices have been made
by a policy of holding aloof from
the market followed by the large con
sumers until they are bare of stock.
The Amalgamated interest in the
meanwhile has held its copper for
higher prices, and according to cur
rent belief is now in control of most
of the' Available copper, while some
IS TO BE
(From Tuesday's daily)
Appreciating the fact that road
conditions in the southern part of the
county are deplorable at many places,
on the main highway to Wickenburg,
and with a desire to make tourist
travel this summer more inviting
between Prescott and Phoenix, a com
mittee of members of the Prejcott
Auto Club yesterday waited on the
Board of Supervisors to recommend
the expenditure of funds to remedy
the existing evil. The plan advanced
is to repair one of the two routes
from Wickenburg north to this city,
over Antelope Hill and thence through
Pceples Valley. When Kirkland is
reached the diverging point is to be
taken. One road from this place
leads through Copper Basin, while
the other goes by Skull Valley and
taps the upper end of Williamson
Valley, connecting with the latter
roail near Granite Mountain. From
Wickenburg north several places will
have to be repaired. The first will
be on Antelope Hill, near the Yar
noil mine, while at other points sim
of the leading buyers find they must
take on more metal and the Amal
gamated interest is in a position to
make them pay a fair price for it.
The outlook in the meanwhile is for
a favorable statement by the Pro
ducers' Association next month and
the size of the exports indicates that
once more the foreign buyer has so
cured the bulk of the cheap copper."

GOULD WEDS MISS GRAHAM
NEW YORK, N. Y. April 29. The
second Gould wedding of the season
took place in the fashionable St. Thorn
as's Church this afternoon, when
Jay Gould, second ion of Mr. and
Mrs. George J. Gould, took for his
bride Miss Annie Douglas Graham,
the only daughter of Mrs. Vos. Un
like the wedding of Miss Vivien
Gould and Lord Decies, which was
celebrated in the same church in the
early part of the winter, today's
wedding was a comparatively simple
and small affair, owing to a recent
bereavement in the family of the
bride. The guest list at the chureh
ceremony and at the reception that
followed was confined to the relativ
es and a few intimate friends of the
St. Thomas's was a bower of white
lilacs, white roses and apple bloss
oms 'when the young bride, leaning
on the arm of her step-father, walk
ed up the flower-marked aisle. The
bride was attended by Mrs. Snow
den A. Fahenstock as matron of hon
or, while her bridesmaids were her
two cousins. Miss Anita Van Dyke
Whitlock of New York.
Mr. Gould was attended by his
brother. Kingdon Gould, as best man.
The ushers were Harvey Graham,
brother of the bride, Anthony J. Drex

Headquarters were established at the
Seelbaeh Hotel today in anticipation
of the opening of the twenty-second
annual congress of the National So
ciety, Sons of the American Revolu

Many guests from out of town at

CASTLE CREEK ACTIVE.
(From Sunday's Daily)
V. E. Glenn arrived yesterday
from his mining camp in Castle
Creek district, and comes to fill the
position of deputy assessor under T.
E. Campbell, serving in a like ca
pacity last year. He states that his
co-owner in the mines, Robert Pel
lett, remained at their camp, where
they are developing their properties.
Mr. Glenn reports the district ad
jacent to Briggs as very active, and
that the Swallow mine is under de
velopment with the mill running
steadily. Another reduction plant is1
to be started in a few days near by,
and the outlook is encouraging for
a large producing district.
ilar consideration will be extenJed.
If the Copper Basin road is favor
ed, the distance will be lessened, but
the expense will be heavy, it is said.
The route will be decided after an
examination is made in the next few
weeks. The board is said to favor
the movement, and when the county
grading machine is available the work
will be started.
Advices from Phoenix are to tMe
effect that summer travel by auto
this year promises to be heavy be
tween that city and the Grand Can
yon, in which Prescott figures as the
point midway. The opening of the
canyon road from Prescott is already
nuving its good effect, and after
Juno it is believed there will be a
large number of auto tourists passing
through this city constantly.
From Phoenix to Wickenburg a
splendid roadway is now available,
since the new cutoff has been com
pleted from Hot Springs Junction to
Wickenburg, which eliminates the
sand washes along the Hassayampa.
ASH FORK HIGHWAY
(From Tuesday'g Daily)
D. M. Clark, in charge of the con
struction of the new Prescott and
Grand Canyon road through Ash
Fork, arrived from the front yester
day, and reports twenty-one miles of
the grade completed north from Jer
ome Junction, or over forty from this
city. His main camp has been
moved and is now three miles north
of King Bros.' cattle ranch, in Big
Chino valley. The work is progress
ing satisfactorily, and by May loth
the "last spike" will be driven at
Ash Fork. But one mile further re

At a meeting held a few days ago,
in Flagstaff, the Board of Supervis
ors took the matter np of building
in their territory, and concluded to
place a force at work this week. The
Yavapai grader will be tendered them
to expedite the work, and it is ex
pected that by the middle of June
the road will" be ready for travel
from Prescott to the rim of the can

ty there are about sixty-five miles
of old road to repair, on a good
The route commands a fascinating
view of the country from its high
elevation, and will be one of the
most popular routes for tourist travel,
with a smooth roadbed and the lia
bility of accidents reduced to a min
imum. In speaking of the Yavapai end,
Mr. Clark is very enthusiastic over
the project. At one point, from Pnn
tenner's to King Bros.', a tangent of
(Mohave County Miner.)
A force of over twenty men is
now at work on the wagon road that
is soon to connect Copperville with
the outside world. The road has been
surveyed over the mountain from
Blue Mary spring, a distance of eight
miles. The grade up the west side
of the mountain will entail a large
amount of work, but once over the
summit there will be little work
necessary to make an excellent road.
L. Hoffman, superintendent of the
Arizona Southwestern Copper com
pany, is personally looking after the
work and expects to have the road
completed within niety days. Within
a few days the force of men at work
on the grade will be doubled. A
camp has been established at the
west side 'of the mountain, convenient
to water and accessible to teams.
NEW YORK, May 27. Air men in
this city are much interested in the
spoch-marking proposal which is to
be brought forward at the dinner
to be given by the Aeronautical So
ciety at the notel Astor, for the en
dowment and establishment of a per
manent aeronautical laboratory. As
such a laboratory would be a na
tional institution, such as the Smith
sonian Institution, President Taft,
who is to be present at the dinner,
will be asked to make the formal
announcement of the details, accord
ing to the plans as announced by the
president of the society. The lab
oratory will be the first of its kind
ever organized in the world, and ac
cording to reports will be endowed
by one of the most conspicuous phil
anthropists in America. The man
euvers along the Mexican border have
served to illustrate some of the uses
of the aeroplane in actual warfare in
such a significant manner that there
is no doubt that the country will
soon add another branch to its war
machinery, that is, of air service.
That President Taft is expected to
make the announcement of the es
tablishment of the proposed aeronau
tical laboratory lends added signific
ance to the report.
IMPROVEMENTS AT PARKER.
(From Sundays Daily.)
John Roberts, formerly a resident
of this city, but now of Parker, ar
rived in the city yesterday, and will
remain for a few days on business.
He states that the government is
disbursing in public buildings at that
point over $150,000 at the present
time, for the use of the Indians.
As soon as the allotment of lands is
announced, there is every indication
of lively times following. Many
people are anxiously awaiting for
this OTder, and large improvements
will be then started in the city.
eight miles is built that will be on
a gTade of less than one-half of one
per cent. From Jerome Junction to
Ash Fork, the route will be a boule
vard, and in addition to that desir
able feature, the scenic attractions
are varied and fascinating. In short,
the new road will be a revelation to
travelers, and when opened will be a
veritable race track. The trip in a
contest should be made in two hours,
from this city to Ash Fork, while
pleasure parties can easily make the
distance in three hours. At a point
about three miles north of the pres
ent camp, the dense cedar forests be
gin, and end about twelve miles from
Ash Fork. The old road through
this wooded country will be straight
ened to reduce the distance. In doing'
this work. Mr. Clark states that an
immense amount of desirable wood
will be cut out, and if there are any
who desire this article free of charge
they are welcome to come and se
The soil through which the greater
portion of this road runs is a de
composed granite and volcanic ash,
and after the first rain comes will
become almost as solid as cement.
The road hag been under construction
for less than two weeks, and in that
time over twenty-one miles, or more
than two-thirds of the distance, has
been converted into a splendid road
way. But one gate is to be opened
in "the entire distance, that at the
Puntenney ranch. This move is due
to maintaining a standard system ot
grade and to obviate additional ex
pense in construction.
