Such smooth sailing marked the first meeting today of the sub-committee of the houe com mitteeon commerce, appointed to frame a Nicaragua canal plan, that the mem bers teel justified in predicting that the measure will be prepared within a week.

Le Baron that cannot be excelled anywhere. One of them, a Bartlett, is believed to be the largest pear ever grown. The flavor is fine, and proves that this is the natural home of that species of fruit. "Boz," Dr. Helm's valuable St. Ber nard, is no more. He was killed last night by Constable Garfia9 at the re quest of his owner. The St. Bernard exhibited unmiakeable symptoms of hydrophobia.

He was valued at $500." CLASS OF '94. Normal School Com mencement Exercises Fourteen Victories in a Single Night. The Largest Class in the His tory of the Institution. The Graduates Give Promise of Honor to Themselves and to Their Cherishing Mother. The commencement exercises at the Territorial Normal school last night were the most impressive in the his tory of that institution, acircutnetance due in part to the higher plane occu pied by the school and in part to the fact that the graduating class was the largest that has ever emerged from the school. Th'e exercises took place at the Bap tist church. The room was profusely but tastily decorated with flowers, palms and flags and was crowded with friends of the graduates and those who feel a just pride in the usefulness of the Normal school. The ceremonials were opened with prayer by Rev. Fred Sheldon of the Tempe M. E. church. After a render- dering of the Old Homestead Schot tische by the Ladies Cornet band, Mies Annie Stewart appeared in the saluta-' tory essay, "Arizona as She Was," an able review of prehistoric times. She was followed by Miss Blanche Newell whose "Arizona as She Is," was a pleasing companion piece and a strong presentation of the territory's claim to statehood. John J. Metz' oration, "Relation of College to Business Life," was practical, sensible and well delivered. "The Labor Question," by Miss Ag nes Dobbie was more scientifically treated than could have reasonably been expected in a young lady whose school avocations led" her to the discue Eion of less difficult subjects. Mips Ida V, olf's "DnftiDg" was a poetic delineation of the course of hu man life with its successful voyages or its shipwrecks and disasters. Miss Rosa Pomeroy disclosed a strong literary bent in an essay upon the life and works of Mrs. Elizabeth Browning. ' lo Thine Own self Be True," bvMiss Nellie Clay was the Bubjeet of a panacea for the moral and political ills of nations. The Keason Why the Moon Is Rough," by Miss Addine Bury, was a lofty and ingenious flight of imagina tion, and proved that the man in the moon is an untidy bachelor, as all bach elors are supposed to be. Miss Myrtle Alpin'B "Individuality in Government" recognized that the be ginning of all government was the gov ernment of one's self. Her application was well made and original. A subject of supreme importance to Arizonians and rendered additionally interesting by her manner of presenta tion was Miss Mary E. McNeill's "Irri gation." Leroy Frank Hill's oration "The Crime of Capital Punishment," was strong and excellent. The class history of Miss Alice Gray created much amusement and was re ceived with unanimous approval. Many pleasant prognostications were crowded into the class prophecy by MisB Ellen Saundera. The audience breathed a hope that she was no false or mis taken prophetess. On account of illness Joseph T. Bir chett, the remaining member of the graduating class was nnable to appear. following the delivery of the pro phecy came the presentation of the diplomas by Prof. E. L. Storment. He expressed a strong faith that the four teen members of the class of '94 would prove creditable alike to themselves and the school. No story of a commencement is com plete without a description, however brief, of that important feature of the graduation the gowns of the lady grad uates. Miss McNeill wore white Bilk with lace. MissAlpin, pink si I; and lace. Miss Stewart, creaai Henrietta trim med with ribbon. Miss Wolf, albatross, cream lace. Miss Gray, cream silk with lace and ribbons. Miss Dobbie, white silk and lace. MiBS Clay, pink nun's veiling. Miss Bury, cream silk with lace. Miss Sanders, white silk, lace trim mings. Miss Newell, white silk, ribbons and lace. Mies Pomeroy, white silk and lace.

The circuitous methods of government were illustrated in a communication re ceived at the office of the secretary of territory yesterday. A Philadelphia firm engaged in the business of making seals and stamps wrote on June 2, to the interior department to know how it could obtain copies of the coat of arms of Arizona. The communication was received at Washington the same day and its character haying been noted it was referred for some reason to the de partment of state where other notifica tions were entered upon it after which it was further referred noted and stamped and then transmitted to the secretary's office here twelve days after date. Had inquiry been made directly here either of officials or of any business man in Phoenix the Philadelphia firm would have been in possession of the desired information and could have had a seal of the territory already made.
