The morning's session of the state conven tion was today marked by do incident out of the usual order. The nomina tions of S. G. Millard of Los Angeles, lieutenant governor, and E. S. Torrence of San Diego and F. W. Henshaw of Alameda for supreme justices for the lor? term, and W. C. Van Fleet of San Francisco for supreme justice for the short term, were as far as the work ad vanced. Millard had no opposition and the nomination was given to Los An geles largely for the purpose of recogniz ing Southern California near the head of the ticket. At the opening of the afternoon ses sion of the convention Timothy Guy Phelps of San Mateo obtained the floor and eulogized the late Senator Stanford in high terms. He dwelt particularly upon Stanford's record as governor and upon his philanthropic character par ticularly in reference to the institution of Stanford University. Morehouse of Santa Clara endorsed Mr. Phelps' remarks and referred di rectly to the '"cowardly, dastardly and unwarranted" attack recently made upon the senator by Representative Geary and he asked that Geary be re buked by a rising silent vote of the con vention. At the request of the chair man the delegates arose as one man and a resolution eulogizing the late Senator Stanford was declared unani mously adoptedand it was ordered that a copy of the same be certified by the secretary andJorwarded to Mrs, ford. A colored delegate from Los Angeles then sent forward a resolution declaring that the colored citizens of California should be recognized in the distribution of state offices. The chairman annouced that the resolution was not in order un less with the unanimous consent of the convention. The author of the resolu tion misunderstood and started to ad vocate its merits. A little laugh en sued but a kindly disposed delegate asked that the convention suspend the order of business and consider the reso- ution. It was so ordered and the reso lution was carried with cheers. A youthful looking delegate from San Francisco took the platform and in a few well chosen words nominated L. H. Brown of San Francisco, the present clerk of the supreme court, for secre tary of state. He was nominated bv ac clamation. He appeared and gave the convention a chance to cheer at few remarks of thanks. The nomination for controller was likewise speedily disposed of, E. P. Colgan of Sonoma, the present incum bent was chosen bv acclamation. The first contest of the afternoon was over tne the treasurerBhip. Three nominee were voted for, Henry Hook of Contra Costa, H. G. Ostrander of Mer ced and Levi Radcliffe of San Luis Obis po. Radcliffe received the nomination on the first baliot, the vote resulting Radcliffe 448, Ostrander 200, Hook 197. A lively contest developed over tne attorney generalship. The candidates were Judge V . 1. Fitzgerald of San Francisco, now on the Bupreme bench, Thomas L. Carothers of Mendocino and Oregon Sanders. W. T. Fitzgerald was nominated. The closest and most exciting fight of the day was over the surveyor-generalship candidate whom San Francisco in tended to support was M. J. Wright of Tulare. The other candidates were Charles E. Ureri of Nevada, and L. B. Aver of Butte. The candidates briefly addressed the convention and the roll was called. As the call proceeded it was evident that the contest would be very cioEe. At the close of the call when it appeared to be doubtful if there was choice many counties asked to have their votes changed from Ayer to Uren but Santa Clara changed from Aver to Wright and settled the contest in the Tulare man's favor. The final vote was Wright, 458; Uren, 302; Ayer, 26. The San Francisco delseation had again voted for the winner. For clerk ot the supreme court, the nominees were Louis Jacobs of San Francisco, T. H. Ward of Los Angeles, and George W. Root of San Benito. Despite San Francisco's support, the roll call ended with Jacobs' total only about 300. Then the usual changes from the weakest to the strongest began. Dele gations went from Root to Jacobs until the 425 mark was reached. The con vention was in great confusion which was greatly heightened by the uncer tainty of the delegates as to the result. The delegates rapidly degenerated into a howling mob. The chairman ham mered and yelled in vain for order, but the tumult only increased. At the height of the uproar he announced the vote. A demand was made for Chair man Knight, who finally stillnd the storm. The chairman then announced the vote as follows : Jacobs 444, Ward 271, Root 132. The delegates again howled for recognition. "Too late, the vote has been de clared," cried , the chairman. The delegates jumped upon chairs, waived hats and canes and yelled like mad men. A hundred wanted recognition at once. The chair refused all and the noise finally partially subsided and Gosper of Los Angeles declared, "There is but one recourse, it was out of order for the acting chairman to declare the vote before it was honestly obtained, I therefore appeal from the decision of the chair." Knight paid' no attention to the ap peal and riot broke loose again. A part of the Los Angeles delegation arose and left the conveniion. The storm Bub sided again and Goldbrath of Santa Cruz obtained the floor and appealed from the decision of the chair. Wild cries of approval greeted the motion. Gosper of Los Angeles moved to recon sider. Finally Dorn of San Francisco arose and said, "I want to facilitate business. On behalf of Mr. Jacobs I ask for another roll call." And this is the way it was settled. The chair ordered the secretary to call the roll. The Los Angeles delegation came hack. The vote was exceedingly close. San Francisco gave JacobB a solid vote and sent him away ahead. But the country delegations generally voted for Ward and he slowly gained on and passed the San Francisco man and was nominated, Ward, 430; Jacobs 414. Wild cheers broke forth from the friends of Ward. It was some moments before the chair could restore order. It was the first break on the alleged "slate." The vote was made unanimous. S.T. Black of Ventura was nominated for superintendent of public instruction, and at a :14 the convention adjourned. Additinonal Evidence Concern ing Fry's Immorality. LOCAL BRIEFS. NEAR THE END. The Will Contest of Young Fry's Will Likely Be Conclud ed Today. How He Placed Hist Property Out of the Reach of a Woman Whom He Had Wronged. People who live in the Five Points neighborhood speak highly of the class of groceries and prompt delivery of R M. Dameron. Messrs.

Jack Sparks says that the Lemon notel is already receiving its share of patronage. A good table and civil treatment he claims does it. The excursionists who go west to night need no scalper's tickets, but those who are thinking of going east or west later bad better see the Sam Drachman agency.

If Frank Shirley should go out of the barber business he would naturally be come a real estate boomer. As a result of his rfforts in this direction f wo fami lies were added to the population of Phoenix yesterday. One was that of Oscar Crockett of Des Moines, Iar, and the other that of Gus Walker of El Paso, with both of whom Mr. Shirley had been corresponding. The number who took advantage of the special excursion rates and left last evening for the coast was about thirty. More than double that number of friends accompanied them to the sta tion to see them off and made the plat form a lively place for a quarter of an hour. Among those departing were noted Mr. and Mrs. Jos. Thalheimer. Mr. and Mrs. T. F. Hafner, Sam Purdv. Col. Herring, Auditor Boone and Gov. Hughes. A large numoer of ladies and gentle men met last evening at Miss Elizabeth Allen's studio at the Redewill mansion for the purpose of pleasantly surprising the talented artist. The surprise was complete. Until late in the evening, Miss Allen regarded the meeting only as a coming together of her appreciative pupils. At last after a song by the hostess a table was uncovered and there were disclosed a number of valuable gifts, testimonials of the regard in which she is held.

An Objection Bains Removed. Churchill addition is clamoring for admission to the city. The only reason able objection heretofore urged against taking this residence district into the limits has been a want of density of population. This objection is being rapidly removed. If every other pre cinct of Phoenix would show the same rate of increase, and keep it up that Churchill addition exhibited yester day, the town could Btart off the be ginning of next year with a popula tion of 250,000. The home of Mr. A. H. Barber, the secretary of the Orange Btlt Canal company, was brightened at the early hour of four o'clock by the arrival of an eleyen pound son. Twelve hours later there appeared at the resi dence of Mr. Ellis Clark, the well known mining engineer and broker an equal welcome girl baby. Insurance. The New York Life Insurance Company. BOONE 4 LEWIS The Fry will case will probably be concluded today. Only one more de position, that of Dr. W. H. Ward re mains to be produced. The character of it is supposed to support the theory of the petitioner that the decedent was of sound mind at the time of making the will, or at least that he was of sound mind when he called upon the deponent upon his arrival in the city less than two weeks before the will was made. Nothing startling or new was de veloped in yesterday's hearing. In fact nothing was developed unless it was additioual mystery concerning the missing life insurance policies. G. B. Fry, the father of the testator. was first recalled to test'fy concerning the three policies amounting to $6,000 which had already been collected by the witness in behalf of his wife, him self and his estate, to whom ' thev were due either by assignment or as bene ficiaries. The only thing which occurred yes terday approaching sensationalism was the procurement by Judge Woodward for the defense of a citation directing the witness Fry to show what had be come of certain propertv valued at about $300 which had passed into his hands but which should have remained in the disposition of the administrator under the will whoever he may be. The main witness was L. J. Wood not only one of the witnesses to the will but the partner of the testator. Mr. Wood's evidence was a repetition of the story of the sensation when it was first made public. He recounted the circumstances oi voung Fry's arrival here and showed that instead of Mrs. Butler having followed him here, she came about two weeks before him. The incidents of the witness's partnership with Fry were related. Fry's confi dences explaining why much of his property had been transferred to his mother were disclosed. It appeared that Frv had not been moved by a strong filial regard for his mother but that he wished to put the property out of reach of a woman at Denver whom he had wronged. In this way cumula tive evidence concerning the unenvia ble character of the deceased was brought in. Fry could not have had a great regard for any woman, even his mother, but he admitted that next to her Mrs. Butler stood highest in his affections. He wanted to do something for her in return for the faithful care she had given him, and so came bout the will. It was prepared without her knowledge. In fact she knew nothing of its exist ence until long after Fry's death. The witness described its signature by Fry and the witnessing signatures of himself and Dr. MacLennan, to whom Fry committed it, to be returned to himself if he should get well ; if not, to be probated for the beneht of Mrs. Butler. An interesting statement made by Mr. Wood was that the young man told him he cared nothing for hia father who cared nothing for him except for his money. The evidence of Mrs. Wood was plain, incontrovertible and at direct variance with all the facts which the contestant had spent three days trying to estab lish. The rest of the evidence related to the identification of Dr. MacLennan's signature and announced intention of voung Frv to make Phoenix his home. The expert testimony intended to De produced by the contestant to show that the signature of ry was forged was not submitted. PERSONAL. General Managers For Arizona. Rooms 5 and 6 Fleming Block.

A suit was brought by Thomas E. .parish to recover about $300 advanced by him in support of the irrigation- project in which confidence had disappeared with whatever invest ments bad been made. The promoter was gone and there was generally little expectation that he would return. Upon the issue of the suit would hang the disposition of the surveying records, etc., which had come to be considered cf little value. After the usual attempts at delay the attorneys for the defense surprised the court and bystanders by bringing in the amount of the judg ment in cash. A rnmor grew on the street in the course of the day that Judge Hender shott had succeeded in obtaining con trol of capital to carry out the immense irrigation program upon which he la bored for nearly two years.
