Grand Canyon Panorama at Panama
Pacific Exposition, One of The
Features of Big Show-
SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 3.
More than two thousand applicat -
ions for concessions, filed by amuse-
ment purveyors in all parts of the
world, have been received by Direc
tor of Concessions Burt of the Panama-Pacific
Many of the concessions will be
extremely original and striking.
Eight of them will, in the opinion
of Mr. Burt, involve an expenditure
of more than two million dollars.
The concessions will be notable not
only for their great size and their
splendor but also for the fact that
they arc selected with a view to
their educational value. The art of
presenting cycloramas and panoram
as upon an elaborate scale has made
tremendous strides in the past few

(From Thursday's Dally)
Three years ago Jimmy Curran, a
miner who' had been about Prescott
for several years, mysteriously dis
appeared and it was not until three
months later that an inquiry con
cerning him was made. It would
probably not have been made at all
but for the fact that he had left a
sum of money on deposit in a Pres
cott bank. It was suspected that
he had met with foul play or that
he had died in the mountains. But
notwithstanding a diligent search no
trace of him was ever found.
Curran was last seen at Mayer.
The last person with whom he talk
ed was a freighter witli whom he
arranged to do some hauling. He
said that he was going into the
Black Canyon country where he had
some mining claims which he was
going to develop. He said that he
would return to Mayer in about ten
The claims of Curran were locat
ed across the canyon. After he had
made his location, William Faltin
who was convicted last week of the
murder of Carl Peterson located
placer claims in the Canyon across
from the claims of Curran.
So far as known, no suspicion of
any connection with the disappear
ance of Curran ever attached to
Faltin, nor was he ever thought of
in connection when a man who was
in that part of the country at that
time remembered that Faltin was
there. That recollection was given
a stimulus when the Yavapai man
heard the story of the murder of
There arc hundreds of prospect
holes of varying depths in that vi
cinity and it is now suspected that
the bones of Curran lie in the bot
tom of one of them.
In accordance with the referen
dum adopted at the recent election
requiring railroads throughout the
state to equip their locomotives with
electric headlights, that duty is be
ing performed at present by the S
F. P. & P. in this city. Under the
law each engine must generate 1,500
candlepower light. The last batch
of these utilities arrived yesterday
in the city, consisting of twelve dy
namos, and-in about two weeks all
of the twenty-six engines used on
this road will be legally equipped.
Each headlight will have a reflector
attachment capable of generating 5,-
000 candlepower. The expense in
curred in complying with the new
law will reach to over $3,000 on this

IS CAUSED W
Legislature Getting To
Be an Old Story
PHOENIX, Feb. 3. There was
not the usual crowd and excitement
at the capitol this morning when
the third session of the first state
legislature was convened although
the galleries were fairly well filled.
It was all too apparently a cut-and
dried affair and Phoenix and her
citizens are getting used to legisla
Then too there was lacking the
usual influx of outside Phoenix men
of prominence who in previous years
have found it convenient to be on
hand when legislatures met. The
members made calls at nearly all of
the state offices, which to the every
day visitor it could be seen, were all
"fixed up" evidently for the purpose
of making a good impression on the
lawmakers. About ten o'clock the
first steps in the program of begin
ning the session were under way.
-Tonight about the only specially
interested ones in the comings and
goings of the solons are the numer
ous attaches who seek enlightenment
from all imaginable quarters as to
just what part if any they will be
called to play in the game of law
making for the commonwealth of
COPIES OF ALL NEW LAWS
(Prom Sunday's Daily.)
Secretary of State Sidney P. Os-
born has rendered his annual report
of the transactions of his office to
Governor Hunt. One feature of it
is that there are certain rccommen
dations in the report that will if put
into practice cut down the revenue
of the state.
The first legislature passed certain
laws regarding the sale of certified
copies of the acts of the legislature.
Last year this section of the work
of the office alone yielded several
thousands of dollars to the state
treasury. For a certified copy the
secretary of state is authorized to
charge twenty cents per folio. The
session laws of the state arc not
published until at least sixty days
following the adjournment of the
legislature. In the meantime there
is a demand for accurate copies of
certain laws, which must be paid
for at the twenty cent per folio rate.
In one case last year one firm had
to paj- $60 and over for a copy of a
certain law. It is the opinion of the
secretary that the state should print
many of the laws as soon as they
are passed in the shape of pamphlets
and let them be gotten by interested
parties for the askjiig. This would
decrease the revenue in the office on
the same basis as that of last year,
$2000, while the increase in expend
iture would come from the printing
of the bills.
