A Holy Week of Widely Varying
This is Palm Sunday, the beginning
of Holy Week, cr as rc is called in the
Reman. Passion Week. In the Latin
and Greek churches, though, Passion
Week precedes Palm Sunday and begins
with Passion Sunday. This is the last
week of Lent. It is called holy be
cause it is commemorative of Christ's
death. It has 'beeu' given various
names in different countries and dif
ferent ages. In the middle ages it was
called the authentic week. In Ger
many, Denmark and Norway and
Sweden it is known as Still week.
A distinguishing feature of its ob
servance is a rigoroup fast. The early
Christians took only one meal a day,
in the evening, of bread, salt and
water. Many abstained from food
during the entire week. The greater
number of Protestant churches do not
observe the week, though many of
them, or some of the Phoenix churches
hold special and significant services on
The distribution of the palms today,
which constitutes the beginning of the
ceremonies ot the Roman and Greek
churches, is sym'boljc of Christ's entry
,into Jerusalem, preceded, as He was,
'by -waving branches. The service is
changed daily in significance of the
gloom and danger which was gather
ing around Him. The doleful Miserere
tills the darkened churches. The fif
teen candles representing the light
of Christ and. the prophets who have
foretold His coming are extinguished, j
all but one, a flickering beam m the
darkness af the world. The lowest
depth of despair is reached on Friday.
The following is a description of the
return of light and' joy.
"On Good Friday the altar is denuded
to signify the desolation of the church,
the prophecies are sung which pertain
to the story of Christ's suffering, the
whole 'body of ithe faithful perform
what is called the adoration of the
cross, the passion: according to St.
John is chanted, and all proceed in
silence to the sepulcher .whence the
concentrated host is brought back in
procession, offered in adoration to the
people and consumed by the celebrant.
"On Saturday the services begin by
the blessing of the 'new tire,' obtained
from flint and steel, because cmr true
-vital light and warmth come from
Christ, our Rock; the blessing of the
paschal candle, an emblem of Christ
arisen; the chanting of all the
prophetic passages of the Old Testa
ment pointing to Christ's resurrection;
then the benediction of the baptismal

Almost coincident in point of time,
but in nothing else, is the Jewish Pass
over, which began at sundown last
right and will continue eight days. Its
celebration is as impressive wherever
there is a congregation as the Chris
tian ceremonial of Holy Week. It is
always observed by the members of
the Jewish faith in Phoenix, though its
observance is rather in the spirit than
in the form which attends the ce'.ebra
tion in the synagogues.
The Jewish Messenger thus describes
"During this period the ordinary
bread is replaced by 'Matzos' (unleav
ened bread), as a reminder that our an
cestors, who were forced to leave the
land of their former masters in haste,
were obliged to hake before the dough
became leavened. A special feature in
the observance of this feast is the
Saiden,' on the first two nights, when
the 'Haggadah' is recited. It contains
the history of the redemption, praises
to the Almighty for past favors be
stowed and prayers for the future wel
fare and prosperia-y of our nation and
all mankind. The Hebrew definition
of 'Saiden' is 'order,' and designates
the regular arrangement of ceremonies
performed on those nights; and the
meaning of 'HaggaTTah' is 'recital.'
"The reading of the Haggadah com
mences with an invitation to 'all those
who are hungry to come and eat; all
those who are needy to come and cele
brate 'Pesach' (Passover). This exten
sion of hospitality is not literally car
ried out, as there is no stransrer within
hearing to avail himself of the good
will; but it is nevertheless true in the
spirit, as every indigent Israelite is
amply provided for by his more for
tunate co-religionist, to enable htm to
observe the holiday properly.
"The custom to open the door for
'Ali yohwe Hanovy' (Elias the
prophet), and to have a glass of wine
ready for him, in case he should ap
pear, originated in this wise: Accord
ing to the Talmud, the Prophet Elias
is to precede the promised Messiah, to
pave the way for the latter, when the
proper time will come for him to ar
rive. Therefore, the pious Jew, on
this auspicious occasion, expressed in
this manner his eageuicss to welcome
the forerunner of ;he expected Messiah.
"The Haggadah ends with an ode
ca.led 'Chad Gadyo.' It is dedicated to
the doctrine of immortality, and runs
thus: My father bought a kid. and the
cat came and devoured the kid; then a
dog bit the cat and killed it; the do?
was then hit with a stick and killed; a
hro then consumed the stick, and in
turn was quenched with water; an ox
drank the water; the cattle killer
s.aughteroif'tho ox; the Angel of Death
then killed the cattle killer. He-e the
climax is reached, as there is no force
in this world to conquer death- and as
it is p:cvrn by the above that 'there is
a gradation m the powers cf the ele
ments of this world, with death as the
superior cf all, u comes then to the
conclusion that there must be a hisrher
power even than dsath; and the last'
stanza is as follows: And the Ho'.y !
One, blessed be his name, came and I
killed the Angel of Death, who killed i
the cattle-killer, etc.
"The expression, 'killed the AnTOi ,r
Death,' is only figurative; the impres
sion it tends to convey is, that death
is also aoolished (through immortal
ity) by a superior force, which is God."
Several Interesting Law Questions
tUy annexation cases came un
in district court yesterday. All the
canes were merged into one, the va
rious additions being represented by
Attorneys C. F. Ainsworth, Thomas 1).
Bennett, Joseph H. Kibbey, j. ry -..inlay
and J. B. Woodward. City At
torney Walter Bennett appeared alone
for the petitioner.
The proceedings were preceded by
the filing of a plea in abatement by
:he contestants setting up that there
was no party to the suit. The city itself
could not be the petitioner. The city
council was also precluded, and while
the city could, through the council au
thorize the mayor to petition for the
taking in cf the addition, and had
done so, that petitioner, J. C. Adams,
had passed out or" existence as mayor,
leaving no successor. It was con
tended that he can have no successor,
3xcept by popular election. It was de
nied even, that the council had power
:o name an acting mayor and that
:here was none in fact. The council
oould name a presiding officer with
none of the functions of the mayor.
According to this view there could be
no one to be held responsible for the
sosts. The city certainly could not be.
The original petitioner, since no
longer mayor, could not be, and if
there were no legal successor to him,
no one could be
A demurrer was also filed to the
complaint denying the jurisdiction of
the court. The questions raised were
not those of lav.' or fact but was leg
islative or political questions. The
legislature in enacting the lav provid
ing this manner of extending the city
limits could not, in contravention of
the original act delegate its power to
the court. Numerous decisions were
cited by the attorneys for the addi
tions, which served to cover precisely
City Attorney Bennitt made reply in
the afternoon. He admitted that leg
islative functions could . not be dele
gated to the judiciary, but denied that
it had been done. He read a lengthy
decision from a federal report in the
Hammond, 111., case, in which the su
preme court cf the state bad taken the
position occupied by the attorneys for
the addition. But the case had been
reviewed in the United Stages circuit
court, which held that while the ques
tions to be passed upon were not mat
ters of law or fact, they were questions
of which some one must be the judge.
The legislature in the nature of things
could not be and the exercise of this
judgment was in no sense the exercise
of any legal function. This federal
court decision in this review included
all ,the cases cited by the attorneys for
The case was taken under advise
ment by Judge Street.
In the attachment cases of Kessler &
Boyle and J. W. Dorris vs C. H. Rieb
ling, judgment was taken by stipula
tion, in the case ot Ward vs Ualsz, a
rncticn fcr a new ti ial was overruled.
A decree of divorce was ordered in
the care of W. E. Doplace vs Ollie Do
place. The divorce suit of Funge vs
Funge was dismissed on account of
the death of the plaintiff .better known
as flattie Cornelius. In the damage
suits of Dean vs the Maricopa & Phoe
nix railroad and Bliss against the same
defendant, demurrers were over-ruicd.
NO SCHOOL SEGREGATION
Luhrs and Hill Overwhelmingly Else
ed to the High School Board.
The school election yesterday was a
little the hottest moral and educational
contest ever pulled off in Phoenix. In
the manifestatin of popular interest it
more resembled a general election of a
delegate to congress and county and
precinct officers. Most of the hacks
and carriages in town vere impressed
into service, decorated with banners
and driven into the furthermost corn
ers cf the district for the encourage
ment of voters, who needed very little
encouragement, for they had gathered
from The EcpuWleaa yastcrthiy morn
ing that the election meant something
more than a formal change of school
trustees. The school system itself was
threatened and segregation could be
defeated only by activity. The interest
'naturally collected at the high school
building and considerably more than
half of the largest vote ever polled at a
Phoenix school election was cast, be
There was a good vote at the central
building, considering the fact that
there was no contest there, and it was
kn)wn there would be none. W. H.
Robinson, the only candidate for the
vacancy on the grammar school board
received 2,ri2 votes.
It was evident quite early in tho
day that segregation was again de
feated and that the symmetry of the
school system was safe far at least an-,
other year. The opponents of division
did not permit themselves to be blind
ed by the C'reagcr or anti-Creager
issue. It did not matter to them who
should be superintendent, so much
as that the integrity of the schools
fihoultl he unshaken. The polls closed
at 1 o'clock, while many voters under
stood that, they would bo kept op':n un
til six. One installment of nineteen
voters came to the polling place ::fler
the count was begun and others kept
dropping in until it was ended.
On behalf of Messrs. Gillette and
Scott, who it was currently reported
were for segregation, the following
hand bill in loud type was issued early
and circulated widely, but it was evi
dently not read extensively;

A WOLF CALF
A Strange and Horrible Monstrosity
at O. II. Christy's Ranch.
Mr. O. H. Christy has lately delib
erately destroyed what some men
would have looked upon as a fortune.
A few days ago one of his cows dropped
a calf which was a horrible monstros
ity. It was perfectly formed as to
every part except the head, .which, was,
that cf a wolf. The ears .were long,
erect and sharp pointed. The jaws
were long and sharp and the lower one
much the longer. The lower lip hung
down about three inches and the jaws
were filled with small serrated t:eth.
On account of the conformation of the
mouth this strange beast was unable
to suck. It had to be thrown dawn
and milk was poured denvn its throat
from a bottle. This kindly attention
was resisted,. The canine resom'blancc
was carried beyond the shape of the
head. The noiso made by the calf wn
at times precisely like rh: whimper of
a pup, and at others like the whining
of one. The sight of it was revolting"
at times, and Mr. Christy reviewed it
each, succeeding time with increased
disgust. Then he began regarding it
with a sort of horror, which grow
more pronounced as tiie animal seomcrt
to thrive and give promise of living.
His aversion to it thrived-" in equal
ratio and at length he killsd it. Its
appearance dead was even more revolt
ing than when it ,war, living. Mr.
Chiisty didn't want even its de-id body
lo have lodgment on his farm or under
it. He built a big honlire over its car
cass and kept it burning until nothing
was left of this freak of nature, one of
the strangest on record, for there is noi
record of anything like it.
This calf would have made the for
tune of a dime museum -prop: iotor.
