The datum plane was formally presented to the city last night by the members of the city council, who carefully considered the advisability of dome it and were, in fact, not quite sure what it ia. A datum plane ia an imaginary level lying under ground ninety-eight and Borne odd and fractional inches below the top of a river-washed stone buried by Engineer Trott at the northwest corner of the city hall plaza. The level as has been remarked, has been there a long time, sustaining to the citv much the same relation that a vermiform ap pendix does to the man who doesn't know anything about anatomy, only the datum plane is more useful. The citizen! of Phoenix are hereby cautioned against digging holea in the ground of a depth of more than ninety eight feet. Such holea would pierce the datum plane and the cost of digging would be charged to the digger. The council immediately began work ing the datum plane for all it was worth and passed an ordinance estab lishing a grade on Washington street between Third street and Third avenue basing the grade onj mathematical calculations based in turn on the datum plane.

The Southern Pacific Refuses to Take Them Back. Covernor Waite Warmly Invites the Army to Make Its Head quarters in Colorado. By the Associated Press. Ogden Utah, April 10. At an inter view today with Governor West, Carjt. Kelly, of the industrial army, said that Governor Waite had extended a cordial invitation to the army and assured it a warm welcome. Governor West told him he must return west. Kelly re plied that he did not believe the men would board the cars and he was in formed that the governor had means of putting them on. Mayor Brough has ordered a carload of provisions. Many of the men ere lick and suffering from lack of clothing. One died last night. He was identified as a Utah sx-convict. B. Abbott, a butcher, died today of exposure coming over the mountains. The army is op posed to returning. Capt. Kelly put the question to those in favor of going to Washington, to ride if possible, if not, to walk, and 1,200 ' hands went np, bat one voting to return. Thegovernor and state officials are now in confer ence, prepared to act quickly, and it looks as if they are determined. General Kelly made a stirring speech to the men picturing the privationa of the long trip on foot but the men were firm. After the men decided to go east, Governor West warned them against thia unwise decision. A rumor is cur rent that unless the army is sent out tonight the men will attempt to capture and run a Union Pacific train east. It ia now certain the armv will not re move tonight. The Southern Pacific refuses all assistance. It is impossible to find men to run the train. It is openly said the road is doing all possi ble to defeat the governor. The latter declares that he will not yield an inch and that the delay will be brief. At 8 o'clock tonight the situation re mains in statu quo. The industrial army has not moved. Governor West haa ordered them into cars and Super intendent Knapp of the Southern Pa cini haa ordered them not to enter them. Governor West has received a telegram from C. P. Huntington, San Francisco, in which he says: "We have taken these men east in the course of business, hoping the condition of the industrial army would be bettered thereby aa they cannot get work here. The officers of the Southern Pacifie company cannot certainly move them westward at less than regular rates and if anything less than regular rates are to be charged it can onlv be done tbroueh negotiations at thia office. In replv to this Governor West sent a long message going over the whole case in detail. He said the position he had taken waa upheld bv the courts and that the acts of the railroad were illegal and in violation of the most sacred rights of the community. The gov ernor's dispatch concluded as follows : The acta of all those participating in thus inflicting these men upon our com munity can not be too harshly charac terized.. I am determined that the au thority of the territory shall be main tained, the decree of its courts en forced and the property and lives of its people protected." What move will be made next ia a matter of conjecture. In the meantime it is believed that if the army or any part of it can escape the military they will make their way on foot to some point east and take the chances of some kind of transportation with the Union Pacific.
