The Odd Fellows Have Their
Work en the Proposed Building to Be

Credit to Prescott.
For several months arrangements
hare been quietly going on by the
local lodge of Odd Fellows for the
erection of a handsome and up-to-date
lodge home, but little has been
said about it because, in the first
place, this order is not one that
sounds a trumpet before it when it
does a good deed, and also because
they wanted to be sure of what they
were going to do before they made
At a meeting held last night the
work of arranging for this matter was
submitted to the lodge and was
unanimously approved of, and now
nothing remains to be done but the
gathering up of a few details, and
within a week active work will begin.
The old frame building on the cor
ner of Cortez and Goodwin streets
will be moved over into the street for
temporary quarters and the work of
erecting the new building pushed to
The new building will be 50x150
feet, containing two handsome store
rooms on the ground floor, while the
second story will be used as a lodge
This story will contain besides I
large lockers for the different lodges !

be equipped with a fine range, with
hot and cold water, cupboards, dishes,

The fact that he had offers of the

ability, high class standing as a

in the line of successful operation.
Leaving three important banking
positions and taking with him his

Bi-Annual Inspection Takes
Place Yesterday and Today.
Inspector's Visit Has No Special Bear
ing on the Reoccupancy of Whipple
Major James A. Irons, U. S. A., in
spector general of the military de
partment of Colorado, with head
quarters at Denver, arrived in Pres
cott yesterday noon from the south
where he had been making his regu
lar annual inspection of the military
posts in the southern part of the ter
ritory. His visit here is for the pur
pose of making his biannual inspec
tion of this post. According to the
army rules all posts that are occu
pied must be inspected every year
and all poets that are not occupied
every two years.
Major Irons went at once and
thoroughly inspected the different
buildings at Whipple.
When seen by a Journal-Miner
man today he said his visit here had
no special bearing whatever on the
subject of re-establishing Whipple,
as his duties were simply of a routine
nature. He stated that he had left
Denver the next day after General
MacArthur returned from his inspec
tion of the posts in Arizona, and he
had not consulted with him on the
matter and knew nothing of his opin
ions concerning re-establishment.
When asked what the condition of
the post was for re-occupancy he
"Of course most of the buildings
are in bad condition, having been un
occupied so long, and buildings in
that condition go to wreck very fast,
but several of them, could be repaired
for temporary use without very great
cost. If however, the post should be
permanently established again, most
of the buildings would be condemned,
torn down and new ones erected."
He further stated that he
could not give any estimate of what
the cost of rebuilding the post would
be on account of not having a knowl
edge of the price of labor and ma
terial. When asked if he thought there
was a probability of temporary occu
pancy by the returning troops from
the Philippines, he said he thought
there wan, as there world be some
thing over 30,000 troops to provide
shelter for, which would be about
8.000 more than the entire standing
armv was before the Spanish-American
war, and the troops which would
be brought back from Cuba would be
placed in the eastern posts, while
those from the Philippines would be
provided for in the west. The large
number of these would make it al
most necessary for a portion of them
to bo placed in Whipple.
It has been learned through private
sources that General MacArthur was
was most favorably impressed with
Whipple for a permanent post and his
report would undoubtedly contain
such a recommendation. The fact
that General MacArthur has been
transferred to the department of the
lakes and General Funston will take
his place, will have no adverse effect
on the question, as it is well known
that General Funston and General
Mr Arthur are on the best of terms,
and whatever was the desire of the
latter would be strictly carried out
by the former.
The matter now looks as though
the familiar sound of the bugle would
be heard at the fort before many

On Saturday evening the editor of

search out the history of Aggie Whip

to wire results to the above paper.
The telegram stated that it was re

was made but no clue to the identity
of any such person could be obtained,

It is another case of a silly little
girl's infatuation for the stage.
While he was doing his mid-air
stunt at the Chutes a few weeks ago
Prof. Hamilton got some more or kea
free advertising in the shape of a
"write-up" in a local paper, in which
his profound philosophy of life was
gravely "aired. '
Shortly thereafter, he showed the
following letter, professionally known
as a "mash note, ' to the other people
at the Chutes:

Mr. Hamilton. Chutes, Los An

Miss Aggie Whipple,
About three or four weeks ago, and
some time after the receipt of this let
ter, the Chutes people began to no
tice a young girl hanging around.
She was plain to look upon and seem

She was particularly attentive to
Mme. Schell, the lion tamer, who is a
sensible little woman, and tlid not ap
preciate the attentions.
Thursday nights amateurs used to
be allowed to appear at the vaude
ville show in the Chutes Theater.
One of these nights the girl appeared
in a very fierce specialty.
It was plain that she had her eye
on the balloon man.
He roomed at No. 1 1 Etst Wash
ington street. One day the girl came
by dismounting at the door asked the
landlady if she could leave her wheel
inside the fence for a little while.
She was accorded the permission she

Last Saturday Hamilton was seen
at the Chutes watching the balloon
go up, and beside him sat Agxpe.
The girl was seen waiting aloue for

Senator Clark of Montana, from the
1 committee on mines and mining, on
; Thursday favorably reported the bill
alreadv passed bv the house amend
ing the act for the protection of lives
of miners iu the territories. The bill
provides that owners or managers of
every coal mine at a depth of .100 feet
or more shall provide an adequate
amount of ventilation of not less than
83 1-3 cubic feet of pure air per sec
oud for every fifty men at work in
the mine, and in like proportion for
a greater number.
The bill as reported to the senate
strikes out the house provision that
workings shall be kept clear of stand
ing gas. and also strikes out the pro
vision that workings shall I kept
clear of standiuggas, and also strikts
out the provisiou that all owner
shall employ shot firers to tire shots
once a day when the mine is in oper
ation, but thev shall not lie fired un
til all other employes shall have been
hoisted out of the mine. Violation
of these acts constitutes a misde
meanor. The report of the discovery of a
