CLEMENCY REFUSED. ABSOLUTELY PURE MANY WILL ENDORSE IT. But Treloar's Joint Resolution Is Not Likely to Pass. WASHINGTON, Dec. 21. Congress man William M. Treloar of Missouri is very much in earnest over the joint resolution which he has introduced, providing for an amendment to the constitution, making terms of office of the president and senators eight years and representatives four years. His resolution also provides that the president shall be ineligible for re election. In Mr. Treloar's opinion, the commercial interests of the country demand this. Under the present sys tem, he says, business enterprises are practically paralyzed for at least a year out of every four six months be fore election because it is not known which party Is to dominate, and six months after, because of the uncer tainty as to the details of proposed economic legislation. As for the doubling of the term of representa tives, he claims that two years is not long enough for a .man to familiarize himself with the practice of congress, in order to be of really valuable ser vice to his constituents. His reason for making the president ineligible for re-election is that ne believes any man could give the country a much purer and abler administration if all thoughts of future personal profit and honor be obliterated. Mr. Treloar says he desires to hear from every business man and voter in the country, regard less of politics, as to whether or not he favors the proposed amendment. He wishes to use the letters before the committee on judiciary, and desires that they be short and to the point. TALE OF TWO CITIES. The Phoenix of Ten Years Ago, and the Phoenix of Today. Phelps, and for the United States, which had been allowed to intervene, by Assistant Attorney-General Dick inson, counsel tor the railroad com pany denied the validity of the for feiture act, and said that it was inef fectual to annul the company's pre viously vested title- Mr. Dickinson contended that the act was valid and worked a forfeiture of the land in question. About 40,000,000 acres of land are at stake in the litigation. The following paragraph, with which the brief of Mr. Dickinson closes indicates that the government's law of ficers are not entirely confident of their case: "While it is insisted that the judgment should be affirmed, nevertheless, if upon this record the court should be of a contrary opinion, it is respectfully suggested, in view of the large interests of the govern ment and its patentees, who were not represented in the preparation oi the case and may be indirectly affected, that the decision be limited as far as practicable to the particular facts pre sented and the questions absolutely necessary for its determination." ALBANY, Dec. 21. Governor Mor ton has refused to pardon or commute the sentence of John Y. McKane. A NICE.

Jealous Woman Assaults a Man Dur ing Church Services. Mr. C. R. Ingles, representing a Mil waukee trunk manufactory, is a busi ness visitor to the city. Mr. Ingles was comfortably settled in a spacious chair in the Hotel Adams lobby, reading the latest war news, when approached by a Republican reporter, "Though I travel for a Milwaukee house," said he, "Kansas City is my home town.. Having left there shortly after the election I cannot say how the election affected business there, but throughout the east there seems to be an encouraging spirit of revival that is awakening and stimulating the dor mant energies of capital. "I was last in Phqenix ten years ago, and let me tell you that the change has been simply marvelous, and shows what enterprise and cap ital can accomplish when properly applied. Ten years ago Phoenix was a typical adobe town. There were about a half dozen stores and a mean little one-story hotel which is still stand ing. The travel here was not large, partly because of the tedious stage journey. Yes, the growth of Phoenix has been remarkable. The city was a genuine and enjoyable surprises to me when I came in the other day, and I do not doubt that the growth will con tinue, and probably attain greater speed as the wonderful agricultural and mineral resources are developed." BARBOURSVILLE, W. Va., Dec. 21. John R. Fargo attended the Baptist church in company with a young wo man. During the services Mattie Cor win arose from her seat on the oppo site side of the aisle, and walking over to Fargo made a vicious assault on him. Fargo's eyes were blackened and flesh wounds about his face bled pro fusely as he walked from the building. The occurrence stopped the service for ten minutes and all was confusion afterward. The Corwin woman was a former sweetheart of Fargo and Sun day night's sensational episode is at tributed to jealousy. TO FREEZE IT OUT. HISTORY OF THE CASE. The Atlantic & Pacific Land Grant Was ' Much Involved. WASHINGTON, Dec. 21 The status of a large part of the grant of land made by congress in 1866 to the At lantic & Pacific Railroad company un der the operations of the act of 1886 declaring forfeited so much of the grant as lay adjacent to the uncom pleted portion of the road, is involved in a case now being argued in the su preme court of the United States. In 1891 the United States patented to A. W. Bray a quarter section of the land in controversy in New Mexico, and he conveyed it to . Robert Mingus. The railroad company brought suit to eject Mingus, and the supreme court of the territory decided against the cor poration, whereupon it brought the case to the supreme court of the United States. The case was argued today for the railroad company by E. J. CLEVELAND, Ohio, Dec. 21. An agent of the Illinois Steel company in an interview in this city today stated that the steel pool would soon be on its feet again.

Tom Sou, the Chinaman who was shot by a Mexican boy, can't reconcile himself to the idea that the wound was accidentally inflicted, though a thorough investigation of the circum stances at the time showed that it was an ordinary case of "didn't know It was loaded." Mr. Sou's face hurts him yet, and feeling in a revengeful mood yesterday he secured a revolver that he knew was loaded and went to the home of the Mexican boy with the avowed determination to annihilate him. "Messican bloy say him play when him shot me," said Tom, "me play, too; have heap fun." At the boy's home the Chinaman made things lively for awhile. He never succeeded in getting within good shooting range of the boy, however, for the latter saw the blood in his eye and knew that the gun was loaded this time. Before Tom had done any dam age he was arrested and will conduct his defense before Justice Johnstone this morning. 4 I F YOU Can?t Decide What you want to give your friend for -XMAS- : LOOK AT OUR WINDOWS, GREENE, ' : B.(TTKH, Fleming Block. MORMON TEMPLE DEblCATED. The new Mormon temple at Mesa was dedicated by Bishop Brigham Young Sunday afternoon. The cere mony was witnessed by a large crowd of people, excursion trains being ruri from Phoenix and Tempe. A large delegation went from Phoe nix on the Maricopa & Phoenix & Salt River Valley roads, besides many others in private conveyances. The tabernacle has a seating capacity of over 300. Every seat was occupied, the aisles were jammed with people and an immense throng stood on the outside. Bishops Brigham Young of Salt Lake City, and Jesse N. Smith and J. H. Willis, of Snowflake, officiated. The interest in such ceremonies al ways amounts to enthusiasm among the Latter Day saints, whenever Brig ham Young is present to address them. Bishop Young returned here last even ing and is registered at the Ford hotel. REAL ESTATE TRANSFERS. COMBINATION OFFER ! Useful Christmas Pres ents for Your Boys.
