Taylors Waive Extradition.
The probabilities are that Phoenix
has seen the last of Mr. and Mrs. F.
M. Z. Taylor, who have been in the
limelight here for nearly two weeks
or since their arrest on charges of
having uttered fictitious checks in
Los Angeles. After having threaten
ed to fight extradition, both finally
decided to waive all formalities and
return to California. In the custody
of Detective Nick Harris and Depu
ty Sheriff Mrs. Nick Harris, Mr.
and Mrs. Taylor started for Los
Angeles Thursday evening. .
The decision of the Taylors to
waive extradition on the very day
that Governor Hunt had appointed
to consider the requisition, is said
to have come about after the gov
ernor had been in consultation with
Louis R. Taylor, a son of the man
under arrest. It is believed that the
young man carried a suggestion from
the governor that it might look
better for the Taylors if they re-J
turned voluntarily rather than go on
record as having fought extradition?
It is generally believed that what
ever case there may be against the
young woman in the case will be
dropped upon her appearance in Los
Following the complete breaking
off of the negotiations to sell the
local street railway, the management
began recently to complete its prep
arations for putting into effect the
recent order of the Arizona Corpora
tion commission compelling a recon
struction of a great part of the pro
perty of the company together with
an improvement in the equipment
and service of the public service util
ity. The East Washington street line
is the first to receive consideration
in this connection and already a
large force of men are at work tear
ing up the old track and installing
a new one, commensurate with the
demands a city the size of Phoenix
makes upon an urban transportation
Under the commissioner's orders
the track must be reconstructed on
the cast end clear to Eastake park.
There are also-other portions of the
lines that some under the ban of
the Corporation Commission. The
cars now in use must also be sup
planted as soon as possible with
The street car company intends;
according to Superintendent Mitch-1
ell to increase the service on the
Washington street line during the
sesisons of the legislature making
the service at about eight minute
intervals. This will allow of rapid
transit between the state house,
and city much more effective than it
Taking the opportunity offered by
the receipt of a letter of resolutions
from Graham county asking tor a
reclamation project there, the Phoe
nix board of trade in directors meet
ing placed itself on record favoring
the appointment of an irrigation
commission. It is quite likely the
legislature will be asked to empow
er Governor Hunt to name a com
mission, whose duty it will be to
pass preliminary judgment on recla
mation and irrigation projects in
this state, and to make proper re
commendations on the subjects. The
board argues a report from such a
commission will have immensely
more weight with the powers that
be than the resolutions of any trade
body in the land.
Certain Graham county people
want a project established in that
commonwealth. They got together
and petitioned the Washington office
of the reclamation service to put in
a small project, and sent the resolu
tions on to the local board for in
dorsement. The board added water
ways control to the list and indors
ed the idea of the commission, which
will also pass judgment on the Colo
rado river work under the Newlands
National river control bill, when .
that shall have become an act. j

One of the most sensational elope
ments in the history of Prescott had
its climax in Phoenix with the ar
rival here of Mr. and Mrs. Bob
Ford, both of Prescott. Before her
romantic marriage Mrs. Ford was
Mary Heap, daughter of Horatio
Heap of the Mile-High city. The
Ford and Heap families, it is known
were long on the most friendly
terms and indeed there was really
no objection to the marrying of the
couple except that it was felt by
the parents of both that they had
not - reached that mature period in
life where matrimony was advisable.
According to the best information
the first discovery of the infatuation
of the bo3f and girl for each other
was when the girl's father, walking
along a residential street of Prescott
discovered his daughter in the act
of being kissed by the young man.
A stormy scene followed in which
the young woman was ordered to
her room and the key turned upon
her and the young man told tor make
himself scarce as hen's teeth.
But young Ford was not to be so
easily beaten. He told Ray Ford,
his brother of the turn matters had
"Don't you mind, Bob, old boy,"
Ray is said to have remarked to his
brother. And then he hurried out,
saddles a horse, travels down the
canyons and across the plains gath
ering a posse of cowboys and other
friends of the boy and girl.
The young woman is taken from
her home without objection on her
part or interference on the part of
her unsuspecting parents. The party
reaches a church and the wedding
follows. Just as the rice is being
thrown, the irate father shows up
and the posse of friends keep him
occupied until the couple boards the
train for Phoenix. They have ar
rived in Phoenix all right and will
be seen in the Lubin moving picture
films being shown at Wigwam Sat
urday and Sunday afternoons and
evenings. It is one of the most
realistic western pictures ever
shown in this city and the locale
gives added interest. Scores of per
sons who make Prescott their home
are to be seen in the picture and the
street scenes are quickly recognized
by any person who has ever been
in the county seat of Yavapai.
A three-A organization, being the
Arizona Automobile Association was
formed yesterday by all but three
of the automobile dealers of the city
of Phoenix. By three-A is meant
"siding with the American Automo
bile association" and at the same
time the initials being the same, the
name can be applied to the new
state's organization. The new asso
ciation will be strictly dealers in
cars and accessories. Its purpose is
the promotion of everything that
makes the automobile business good,
from the advocacy of good business
methods to the exploitation of good
roads, shows, tours and contests.

Shut Off "Dope" Supply.
In order to deal with the condi
tion of lawlessness which has re
cently developed in Douglas, and
which is attributed by Chief As
kins largely to the agency of drug
fiends, two plans have been formu
lated, to be followed out by the
police department. One will be to
visit each of the pawnshops of the"
city every morning and examine the
goods which have been received on
the day previous, comparing them
with lists of stolen goods. Another
which has been arranged for is to
have all prescriptions for morphine,
cocaine, etc., filled by the local drug
stores only after they have been
given the official O. K. of the chief
It is customary, in all of the
larger cities of the country, to have
the pawn shops furnish lists of
goods received each day. It has not
been customary to follow out this
rule in Douglas, although the police
have full power to require it. In
stead of doing so, however, the po
lice will visit each pawnshop every
day and inspect the goods.
Chief of Police Askins -has visited
each of the drug stores and re
quested that they shall not fill pre
scriptions for known drug users
without sending them to him for &n
official O. K. on the prescription.
This has been agreed to, all drug
gists declaring themselves more than
willing to aid in every way the cam
paign the chief has begun to rid
the town of an increasingly large
element of drug fiends. Not a few
of the robberies of recent months
can be traced to this source.
FIND MUCH LOOT
WHEN PLACE IS RAIDED
(From Thursday's Daily)
The county jail building yester
day presented more of the appear
ance of a young and thrifty mercan
tile establishment than a habitation
for harboring the evil inclined, as
the result of the biggest clean up of
stolen goods that had been known
in this community for many years.
A bunch of four Mexicans named
Francisco Costello, Andreas Franco,
Manuel Escamillo and Feliciano
Cuevas were accredited with having
in their possession the variegated
line of goods, that ran from a 100
pound sack of sugar to the dainty
shoes of some maiden that wore a
No. 2, French button of the latest
make. The list of goods recovered
from a place on South Granite street
included a miscellaneous assortment
of men's wearing apparel, with all
makes of boots and shoes, cases of
condensed milk, eggs, corn starch,
tea, coffee and other canned "truck"
required the accommodation of a
wagon to handle; in short the "bill
of fare" was as carefully selected as
if some epicurean authority was
ready to open up a stand "with all
the market affords." The Home
Bakery identified many" of the ar
ticles, but who are owners of the
miscellaneous articles not required in
pastry making, will probably be

rest of the men was conducted, by

on Tuesday night. Several burglar
ies have been reported during the
past ten days, hence the vigihince
that resulted in the arrest of the
