a Grand Scale.
The Queen Chosen-Finest Riders in
the World Will Compete-A
PllOENlX.INov. 20, 1900.
The Carnival Association, and by
this is meant almost every citizen of
Phoenix, have determined to do things
this year in no half measures. They
have enlisted for the first time the en
tire co-oporation i)f-.the."Jadies,.andor-ganlzed
a woman's "department. -This
department comprises committees of
women on queen's coronation ceremo
nies, the seleetiou of the queen and her
court, decorating the queen's throne,
a beautiful ribbon parade, baby show
and baby coach parade, children's
fancy dances and cake walks, a masked
ball and reception to distinguished vis
itors. In all there are several hundred
women at work making a success of
The queen, her gracious majesty, has
been chosen, and not by the sordid
method of balloting. While this would
have been a source of revenue to the
fair, yet it was thought best to lift It
above the ordinary talking and schem
ing of voting and to name the queen
and furnish her and her entire court
with costumes, carriages and every
Mrs. B. N. Pratt, one of the moet
charming and gracious young women
of Phoenix, whose social position is un
questioned, whose beauty Is acknowl
edged by all, has been chosen queen of
the 1900 Phoenix carnival. Mrs. Pratt
will have for her immediate ladies in
.waiting Mrs. J. E. Barkley and Mrs.
Six charming young ladies will be
selected as her maids of honor; eight
gentlemen of the court, a prime minis
ter, Master of ceremonies, court jester,
pages, heralds, equerries and other
characters will sustain the promise of
the management to make the court
ceremonials gorgeous and beautiful.
On Second avenue and Main street
will be erected the queen's throne
whereon she will reign with her court
throught the entire carnival. For
special functions, such as the races,
cowboy sports, official carnival ball,
and baby show, the queen will be taken
in carriages from the throne and will
Naturally next to the queen and her
court come the various parades, pa
geants and cowboy sports.
In the way of parades the opening
one will be the industrial, military and
civil parade with floats, marching or
ganizations, cowboys, Indians, eques
trians and other features, and it will be
of considerable length and importance
and will be the opening of the carnival.
On different mornings thereafter the
Indians and cowboy will give their
dashes through tho town, keeping up
the carnival spirit and giving the tour
ists and easterners au idea of wild life
in tho southwest.
The Carnival takes Its name natural
ly from its exhibition of Indian and
Cowboy sports, life and characteristics.
It is through these lhat it has become
known through the United States, and
it is upon this feature that Phoenix
citizens rely for uniqueness and origi
nality in the entertainment line.
The program as rendered by the
Director General to the Executive com
mittee is as follows:
TUESDAY AT THU TlUClf
One-half mile running race.
Three-eights mile running race.

public before,the queen and her court.
On Thursday morning the event for
bicycles and their admirers and friends

motor pace, with entries from all south

very Important one, and will attract
scores of people to Phoenix.
On Friday will come the beautiful
ribbon parade, which will be on the
order of the Jloral parade of Los

other California cities. There will al
so be the Baby Coach parade which is

Saturday night, the closing of the

The rallway will mak the lowest

Donver and intermediate points; Albu
querque, El Paso and Tucson and inter
mediate points; Los Angeles, San Ber
nardino, Pwiverside, Yuma and inter
mediate points; San Francisco and
intermediate points. This will un
doubtedly result in big excursions and
parties to yislt the city from all sec
tions. Year by year the carnival grows in
importance and strength, until it now
assume almost a national importance.
Director General Lewis has written
a personal letter to President McKin
ley asking him to formally open the
carnival by a message on the evening
of December 10th, aud this will un
questionably be accompliahed. An op
erator will be placed on the stage and
a series of strikes of a bell will an
nounce the moment the message is sent

States has many warm admirers
throughout the territories, and at the
present time his action will meet with
approbation and he will undoubtedly

Arizona Man found Dead.
San'Pedro, Cal., Nov. 22. The body
of R. Cameron, late of Tombstone, Ari
zona, was found floating in the inner
harbor near tho Southern Pacific
wharf station this morning. The ovi
dence leans toward a theory of acci
dental drowning, but there are a few
indications of foul play.
J. E. Wright, who is employed in one
of the lumber yards, discovered the
body and hauled it to shore. By a sin
gular coincidence Wright attended
Cameron's wedding in Ventura in 186C.
The corpse was removed to Lucas's
undertaking establishment, where by
request of the coroner, Dr. Weldon
made an.examination. The doctor re
ported no marks of violence, aud .found
the thorax and stomach filled with
water. He thought from the appear
ance of the body that Cameron had died
In the dead man's pockets, among
other articles, were 35 cents in money,
a round trip ticket from Los Angeles
and a letter from Jacob Scheerer of
Tombstone, Arizona. The Scheerer
letter mentioned Cameron's ill health
and spoke of an enclosure of $20, which
Scheerer said he hoped Cameron would
find useful. A watch and chain which
Cameron had carried were missing.
Cameron visited Mrs. Nime's restau
rant Friday evening and had a $10
piece changed. Later in the night he
was about town intoxicated.
The coroner's jury returned a verdict
that Cameron was "supposed to have
come to his death by accidental drown
ing." J. H. Powers, a San Pedro merchant,
used to know Cameron when he was
logging with oxteams in Morse's aud
Ross's cauyous, near Tombstone. Cam
eron was about 70 years of age. He
had been staying at No. 214 East Fifth
street, Los Angeles. He came to San
Pedro last Monday.

manufactured several silver coins, each
containing one ounce of pure silver.
He calls his coins "referendum dol

cents SO cents in till. But he values
his dollars at 91.25 and expects to issue
them as such and keep them above par.
Although he is confident that the sil

promises to pay 41.25 hi United Slates
