"New York is pre-eminently tlie home of
'sky-scraper' buildings," said Mr. Martin
J. Low, at the National last evening. "We
haveeightbulldings recently constructed, or
in process of construction, over 300 feet
high , and running from eighteen to twenty
nine stories. Chicago also lias some tall
buildings, but the only one to reach 300
feet In height Is the Masonic Temple, which
is exactly 300 reet to apex of roof.
very tall buildings, which 13 just now be
ing noticed by the occupants. It is, per
haps, a small disadvantage, but still is
worth considering, as It involves severe
annoyance to those who have not made
some provision Tor It. This trouble is the
si oppmgof pendulum clocks by the vibration
of the buildings. Many a pendulum clock
that has kept accurate time for years In
old-rashloned low structures, lias refused
to run at all when moved into some oneof
the new tall steel-framed buildings In the
lower part of the city. On the lower floors
of the buildings the clocks run fairly vHl,
but when hlglnjrup in the buildings they be
come moie whimsical, and on ttietop floors
will not run at all.
"Mr. Dunn, of the Weather Bureau, has a
fine pendulum clock which has not done
an honest day's work since the Weather
Bureau was moved into the new orflccs
It has stopped o often that it no longer
to be relied upon. The pendulum swings
continually, but only from the vibration of
the building, as the clock lias not been
wound for weeks. The only relief Is in
replacing the pendulum clocks with others
that have balance wheels.''
"My home city, Toronto, -Canada," said
Mr. Elmer 8. Moore at tlie Kalelgh, "has
long bren a rival of Edinburgh, Scotland,
as a paradise or Sabbatarians. No Sun
day newspapers are published there, and
110 street cars run on Sunday. The lack of
local Sunday papers seems to be endured
with stoicism, but there is a strong senti
ment in lavor of Sunday transportation,
and a fight is going on now about it.
If a majority of the voters deroaud street
cars they may have them, but it is under
stood to be rather unlikely that a majority
favorable to them can be found.
"Advocates of a chaugesay that without
cars people find it hard even to get to
chinch, wliile poor people wnp cannot af
ford carriage hire are unable to get to
tlie cemeteries or into the suburbs for

but it also causes an increased use of
other vehicles so great as to Involve about

cars are people who see no objection to

Commissioners Will Not Heed Coal
A lively conference took place at tlie
District Budding yesterday, when Mr.
Charles E. Werner called to see Commis
sioner Wight, relative to certain charges
made by Gen. Frank Bond, Sealerof "Weight s
and Measures, in answer to prior chaiges
filed against him by Mr. Werner and other
cxil dealers of tlie city.
Mr. AVeraei went to tlie District Bui'diug
to dernan d aretractiotio f certain allegatl' -n s
made by Road in hlsopen letter to the Com
missioners, which was published in The
Tunes at thetlme. Commissioner Wightsent
for Sealer Bond yesterday, andlu tlie pres
ence of Mr. Werner, he not only reiterated
the charges, but emphasized his allegations
by making further remarks of a nature none
too complimentary to his accusers. The air
was rather sultry for a few rotn utes , as both
Mr. Werner and Gen Bond were much
aroused over the controversy, the one on
tlie defensive and the other on the ag
gressive. The arfnir, however, passed orf quietly,
and later in tlie day additional charges
were filed with the Commissioners, in
which the several dates and instances noted
in the first bill or chaiges against Gen.
Bond were specified. Messrs. Charles
Weraer and Geoigc W. Merrill represented
the coal exchange in which the particular
violations of the Commissioners' orders
were given, viz.: William M. Gait & Co,
B. B. Earnshaw it Bro., and Pennsylvania
Railroad scales at Benning. It is said that
the Commissioners, through Mr. Wiglit,
have notified ttiese warring delegations
that they aie satisfied with the defence
of the sealer of weights and incasmes, and
that as far as charges are concerned they
have dismissed the matter fiom their at
tention. It 1s a -well-known fact that every effort
is being made to cause the resignation or
dismissal of Bond, but the Commissioners
beem favo:able to him. His manly and
open repudiation of each and every al
legation against the maladministration Of
his oflice has won the favor of the board,
and the fight to displace him will be a
long and bitter one. It is not likely that
any change In the office will be made for
some time, and certainly not until chaiges
of a seiious nature have been fully sus
tained. As it now sTands, the war wages
with umelcnting fervor, and the delega
tions and candidates continue to besiege

Ex-Congressman Myron H. McCord, nom
inated to be governor of Arizona, Is fifty
four years old. He was born in Pennsyl
vania and moved to Wisconsin in lSG4,nnd
lived in that State until 1892. He served
several terms In Uie-State legl&lature and
came to Washington as a member of the
Fifty-first Congress from Wisconsin. He
moved to Arizona In 1893. Mr. McCord
bus been interested in the Territory in a
large fruit raising enterprise. It has been
most successful. His" farm Is about four
miles out or Phoenix," the capital of the
Territory, on one of the great Irrigation
Goveranr-to-be McCord was seen by a
Times' reporter at his temporary home In
Warrington, Inst night, In regard to his
nomination and to the fortunes or the
Territory. Heis an enthusiastic Arizonlan,
and tnlked of the present and tlie future of
his home. He believes that the Terri
tory and afterward the State of Arizona
will be one of the finest in the West.
"Why, tie said, "the Salt IUver Valley
alouc can support half a million people. It
is the finest in the world. The State is 300
miles long and is larger than New York
and Pennsylvania together. It Is mostly
an agricultural country and "will be remark
able for this mure than anything else. The
sheep raising Industry Is in its Infancj';
but it has worFfl.erftil prospects to dream

lemons and grape fruit and figs, and all
the semi-tropical fruits in as gTcat abund

of California can produce The other ag
ricultural iuterefts are almost equally
important in thnir'future, and are even
laiger now. And then it ie a great stock
raimng country, too '
"To my mind the -one paramount need
Df Arizona is early admission to the
Union as a sovereign State. It is the
history of every State that has been
admitted since the original thirteen, with
very few exceptions, that within three,
Jour or five years immediately follow
ing their admission, they have doubled
In wealth and population. 1 do not be
lieve Arizona would be an exception;
there is no reason why it should. Is not
statehood then a" boon worth striving
for? The best way to obtain It is by
demonstrating to the world that we are
worthy of It.
"This can best be done by enacting and
enforcing good laws, giving to the peo
ple good government and the lowest possi
ble taxation consistent with commendable
progression and that spirit of public enter
prise that ought to animate the breast of
every citizen by elevating to a higher
plane if possible our common schools aud
other educational institutions; and by en
couraging and inculcating temperance,
morality, virtue and good citizenship
among tlie people. Another thing Arizona
needs which inimrortance is second only
to Statehood is capital to build more rail
roads, carry out more irrigation projects
and to develop its latent resources and un
cover Its hidden -wealth
"To assure this we should set our taces
like flints against every act that in the
slightest degree hints or squints toward
repudiation. In no other way can we
acquire or retain the confidence of cap
ital. Let us not forget that the eyes or
the public are constantly upon us, and re
membering this, see to it that our acts
are such as to reflect credit upon and com
pel respect for the Territory and its peo
ple. I do not forget that a large share
of this advice applies to our public of
ficials and by me it will be constantly
borne in mlnfl.
"I believe Arizona has a great future be
fore it. Compare for a moment the condi
ftionsthat existed in Arizona twenty years
ago with those exlstingnow , and then con
template what, in all probability, they will
be twenty years hence, and it requires no
great Btretch of the imagination to see a
ricli and prosparous people, aud a great and
powerful State. Climatically considered,
there is not so favored a spot anywhere else
on earth. There is not a spot within the
boundaries of the United States of America
where cattle, horses, sheep, aad bwine. can
be produced more clieaply o r with greater
profit to the producer; there is not a spot
in North America where the precious metals
can be produced with greater remuneration
to the producer, and there are few spots
anywhere where agriculture, horticulture,
dairy-farming, and all kinds of rural hus
bandry can be carried oa more successfully
and profitably than right here in Arizona.
Today we have 100,000 people, and I will
stake my word that they are as intelligent,
as honest, as progressive; and as good citi
zens in every way as those of any State
in the Union will average. All we want is
an opportunity, tharightof self-government,
in other words, Statehood."
That Col. McCord"s appointment is most
amazingly popular in Arizona was demon
strated during the, day la the receipt of
over 1 00 telegramsof congratulations from
Tucson, Phoenix, Prcscptt, Flagstaff and
Yuma, and the larger towns of the Trrri
tory, all shades of political belief being
represented. The busnes3 mensem par
ticularly delighted with, the appointment,
as they have most to gain from the InJ
qucuou inro oince or a genuine citizen
of the Territory. C. "H. Akers, who was
nominated to be secretary of the Terri

Especially in tlie more extensive oppor

week of unalloyed mirth and JoUity.
'Niobe" is unquestionably one of the
funniest plays that has been offered to
the public In years, and its run in New
York the season it was brought out was
one of the most successful In the history
of the New York stage Miss Kattierine
Grey will make an Ideal Nlobe, and the

advantage. Mrs. Kate Denin-Wilson and
Misses Clara Emory, Grayce Scott and
Carrie Berg are members of the company
who, having been held in icwrve. will
make their first appearance with the com

At the Lafayette next week "Mikado,"
Gilbert and Sullivan's most successful work,
will be the attraction, and as presented
by the Ca6tle Square Ojiera Company will
rival In lyric perfection and scenio splen
dor the best of past performances. The
humor of "Mikado" is natural, and the
situations marked with a refreshing origi
nality that makes eacli production more
pleasing. Tlie cast to appear will include
MI-9 Grace Golden, who has become very
popular here: Joseph Sheeliau, Mr. Woo'ey,
Bayniond Hitchcock, Miss Alice Judson.
nnd Miss Etta Bartlott. The opera af
fords fine opportunities for effective chorus
work, and this point is taken full advan
tage of. In fact, the chorus of this organ
ization is one of exceptional fitness, and
at all times deserviug of commendation.

and everybody gets tangled up in a lot
cf embarrassing situations, iind cut most
ridiculous figures. But it all comes out
right In the end, nnd no one Is any the

CHAPMAN'S LIFE IN JAIL
JIow the New York 'Broker Con
trives to Pass His Time.
He Does Not Allow It to Hang
Heavy- on His Hands "Will
Sign Cheeks Today.
Broker Chapman spent his third day at
theDistrictJall very comfortably consider

warm weather. There was no change In
his appearance. He wore the tame brown
check suit which he wore on the day. f nis
The distinguished prisoner has not much
time to brood over bis unriersirnble posi
tion or the causes which brought It about.
He rises early and is busy from morning
until bedtime. He is his own barber s-id
consequently completes his toilet at un
early hour. After breakfast he is busied
with his mail, which occupies an hour or
two ot his time. II c then eutertalnsa num
ber of callers, some social and some on
In r"ference to this Mr. Chapman said
"I Have a larger mall than ever before
in my life," he said, "and more than half
of my correspondents are unknown to me
even by name. All of them, however, ex
press sympathy with me In my position,
and I hope I will be none the worse for
ray unique experience.
"I knew how the brokers on Wall street
felt about the matter, but it is very grati
fying indeed to hear that others in all
ranks of life indorse the line of action
which I felt obliged to follow. As J vio
lated a law I supjio.se I am in here rightly,
and, therefore, am conteut to stay, but
that there shou'd be such a law to violate
I consider a blot on the record ot a free
people. And, mark my words, that law
must be repealed before many years have
"I see the trial of Mr. Havemeyer, ac
cused of an infraction of the same law,
has been postponed. Well, if he has to
come, I should like him to be here while
I am here to welcome him, .and make
him leel at home; but, or course, that
would be impossible, as even In case of
conviction, the matter would be appealed
from court to court."
'Terbaps you wouldn't be bere anyway;
t'i'it is. if the President should pardon
you," was suggested.
"I hardly think Mr McKinlcy would exer
cise clemency, unless he were requested,
and otUng to the general attention which
lias been attracted by this case, I should
not like to embarrass him byprelerringsucli
a request, and. after all, I suppose my in
carceration wiU serve some solitary pur
pose, if it .snows to all clashes that a man
of means can serve a term of Imprisonment
as veil as tlie next,"
"With two days left belund you, how do
you like your surroundings?
"Do you know," was the laughing reply,
"I believe I was made for this sort of
thing. I feel as much at home as a crab
la salt water. To be sure, I have a little too
much leisure, but tomorrow about 1,400
cheeks are coming down here for me to
hign, and that will keep me busy for some
"Moreover, I expect soon to make some
ecquaintances among my new neighbors.
I can assure you they seem to be a very
nice lot. I hear them conversing with one
another now, but their conversation seemB
to be confined principally to their cases
I heard a talk this morning which was a
fair sample. Oneof the men In my corridor
yelled: No 30, hellol Hello, was the
answer. 'There tire thirteen men trying
my case, the first one continued. 'How
Is that?' 'Well, tlie judge and the Jury
are against me.'
"As soon as I get a sufficient acquaint

broker, "I expect to Join In myself and talk
about my case."
