General Sherman Pick'd Up a Hoi ' Receiver Subjected to a Strong Cress Tire But He Replied Gal lantly for a Man Surprised. The telephone line between the resi dences of C. P. Leiteh. and Col. Wil liam Christy was burned out on Sun day by General M. H. Sherman. That section of the system between the home of Col. Christy and the resident of John O. Dunbar was also destroyed and the girl at the central office w-as Jarred. Altogether it was the most re markable phenomenon that ever oc curred in Phoenix since the telephone system was introduced. Persons fa miliar with the workings of telephona plants elsewhere, say they never heard of anything like it. After the morning services at the First M. E. church where General Sherman had been worshipping and absorbing spiritual strength against the ordeal last night, he went home with the family of Col. William Christy for dinner. Mr. Leiteh, who lives a short distance beyond, also stopped there on his way home from town. Mr. Leiteh, as one of the pro prietors of the Gazette, and General Sherman, as the sole proprietor of the project to make the Phoenix water company a burden on the city of Phoe nix for the next forty years, engage ! in a conversation on the wordly sub ject of water works and the ungodly and violent course of John O. Dunbar toward General Sherman. Mr. Leiteh deprecated the fiery and untamed at titude assumed by Mr. Dunbar anl promised to call him down. The gen eral eald no, let him alone; he didn t care a tlnkersdam, or something like that, what Dunbar said about him. No," continued General Sherman warming to his subject, "I don't care a damn what any of the Phoenix pa pers say. 7 don't read 'em; I don't look at 'em; I don't even open 'em. No damn 'em, I don't even know they exist." Mr. Leiteh soon went away promising to call Dunbar oft anyhow ,To a better understanding of what hereinafter ensued, a scientific and geographical explanation is assisting. If not necessary. The homes of Mr. Leiteh. Col. Christy and Mr. Dunba' all lie west or northwest of the city. Mr. Leiteh farthest out and Mr. Dun bar's nearest town. They all have telephones served by the same wire, so that if a member of either household were unscrupulous, he could overhear any conversation between members of the other two. Soon after Mr. Leiteh had time to get home the telephone at Col. U1E DO JSIOT belong to the combine nor will we. We pay cash for our goods. Discount our bills.

General Sherman was near by and was, in fact, expecting that kind of an acoustic event. He is not altogether devoid of logic and he figured that Mr. Leiteh at the earliest possible opportunity would hold a con versation with Mr. Dunbar. Imagin ing that he would be one of the sub jects of that conversation General Sherman, as an interested party of the third part, believed it would be no Infringement of etiquette to listen to what he could hear. He did not ex pect to hear anything flattering enough to make his heart burst with pride, but he was hardly prepared to hear Mr. Leiteh "sicking" Mr. Dunbar on him 3ome more, after having Just promised to call him off. It was thus brought to the guileless General Sherman that there are some men not to be trusted. It was a cruel blow to one fresh from the droppings of the sanctuary, shattering his faith in his kind. In an instant the whole nature of General Sherman was changed. From a man who, consciousof his own ingenuousness, had habitually believed in all mankind, he became at once narrow and suspicious. He re solved to never again trust any man farther than he could throw a bull oy the tail. While this reorganization of the soul of General Sherman was going on the conversation between Mr. Leiteh and Mr. Dunbar was proceed ing. They were saying things about him which, if proven true on trial after i proper indictment, would have been followed by a motion for a new trial. "And he says." telephoned Mr. Leiteh, "he don't care a damn what he papers say about him; he says he never reads 'em, but I noticed he was vorried." "He's a damn liar," tele honed r. D.unjjar in reply. "II Ices cat ; he reads 'em ail. Why. Leiteh, that time the San Francisco Call was after him in that Pacific ank affair he was damn near crazy. The Call kept him up nights walking he floor, tearing his hair anil threatening to commit suicide. Damn -lim, he told me he was going, to com mit suicide. He's a " "Yourre a God damn liar, John Dunbar, and you daresn't say that to ny face. There isn't a man in town lares to say it." This was the be rip.ning of the burning out of the tele--hone wire. It was General Sherman, disregarding the sacred character of 'he day and the sanctity of Col. Christy's home, where such language lad never been heard, breaking into :he conversation between Mr. Leiteh and Mr. Dunbar. Then ensued a b r r r r, s s st st, s s 5, z z zt of the wire, mingled with pro anity and sounds like a man jumping up and cracking his heels together and striking the palm of one hand with the fist of the other. General Sherman seemed to be laboring under intense ?xc!tement. Mr. Leiteh fainted and vas heard no more. Mr. Dunbar was lazed for a minute. In the meantime General Sherman recovered the use of his vocal organs and got a procession of language started over the wire. He talked so fast and so loud that Mr. Dunbar, who had succeeded in collect ing himself, was unable to cut in for ome time. Finally General Sherman stopped to get his breath and Mr. Dunbar seised the wire. "Damn you Sherman." said he. "You say I can teil you this to your face? I can tell you this and a damned sight more you don't want to hear. You know now what people think of you." Thus the destruction of the wire con tinued. Mr. Dunbar's use of it was even less gentle than General Sher man's had been. He loaded it with a cargo of profanity, personal opinion and recrimination. He reminded Gen eral Sherman of his many past mis deeds and the general unbeautifulness it his character and reputation. "Now." he said, "you've got an honest expression by eavesdropping. That's what every eavesdropper gets. You know now what people think of you. t don't mind telling you what I think. I'll tell it to you to your face or tele graph it to you or send it in a letter or 'et you know by telephone, you dam old eavesdropper. "I was not eaves dropping," replied General Sherman. "I was trying to get General Ains worth. I didn't want your old wire. Ring off. damn you." Mr. Dunbar 'Jidn't ring off immediately but reiter ated his former observations so that the general wouldn't forget them. He kept on until his wife pulled him away from the telephone, reminding him that some lady visitors in an adjoin ing room were scared and were hur riedly putting on their things to leave. But the wreck cf the wire was now complete. Mr. Leiteh came to town yesterday fiernoon still pale. He seemed like mother man. He had bfen exposed, tie was not the milk and water and icouiesoent newspaper proprietor he had been supposed to be, but on the other hand the dictator of a more vig orous policy than his colleague. He is -lissatisfied with the Suns?t telephone system. "I'm going to have mine taken out," he said. "Why, a man trying to talk on the q. t. over the wire might as well hold a mass meeting and ad vertise it for a week." THE PHOENIX GOLF CLUB An Organization was Yesterday. Effected The Phoenix Golf c lub was organized yesterday afternoon at the board of trade rooms. A large number of inter ested gentlemen assembled there, se lected H. I. Latham temporary chair man and W. L. Pinney as temporary secretary. A committee consisting of L. H. Chalmers, Dwight B. Heard and Dr. C. G. Campbell was appointed to look int the matter of location ot grounds and the probable cost of put ting them in condition for playing. A committee consisting of J. C. Adams, V. Nellany, Hugh M. Creighton. T. W. Pemberton and V. L. Sawenton was ap pointed to draft constitution and by laws and select directors. An adjournment was taken until Wednsday afternoon at 4:20 at the board of trade rooms, to receive the re port of the committees, and perfect the organization. All persons interested in the game of golf are requested to be present at that time, and get their names down as charter members. A letter has been received from one of the best professional golf players in Chicago, who desires to come to Phoe nix for the winter, supervise the laying out of the Phoenix links, take charge of them afterward, and give instructions iii the game. GO TO THE MASS MEETING AT THE COURT HOUSE WEDNESDAY NIGHT AND HELP BOOST THE MU NICIPAL OWNERSHIP PROPOSI TION. A KANSAS ATTORNEY Wants to Know Something About Photnix as a Home. Homer A. Cole, a citizen and attor ney of Minneapolis, Kans., is desirous of changing his residence. He has heard of Phoenix, has a half-formed notion of trying it on with the idea of becom ing a permanent inhabitant. Mr. Cole seems to be a sufferer from ennui. A Colorado agricultural region was too tame for him and he jumped out of the frying pan into a fire by moving to a Kansas village where the terrors of a bucolic life accentuated the horrors of tetotalism. But Mr. Cole can tell in his own language what he wants better than can be "told in paraphrase of the following letter received by Clerk Foster of the district court yesterday. Mr Cole doesn't want to know very much for a two cent postage stamp: Minneapolis, Kans., Nov. 2. Clerk of the District Court, Phoenix, Arizona, Dear Sir: I hope to locate somewhere in the west and have thought of your city. I lived in Colorado for several years and of course in an agricultural country it is too tame and slow for me. I realize that it would be hard work to work into a practice anywhere. Is there a large amount of legal work in your city? How many practicing at torneys have you? What would one have to pay as rent for two office rooms in a fair location? Also for a five room cottage? If I should locate in your city sometime in the future I would like to purchase a home of one acre so I could have a garden, but I would want it close in and in a loca tion that I would be proud of and at the same time not pay as much as I would for a corner on Broadway, N. Y. city. From what I have heard of your city and your people I judge it has as many advantages for a home as an;. city in the west. If there is plenty oi business a man stands a show to wort in, but in a prohibition, God moralitj state where the work is light and small fees at that, one has no show or pleas ure unless he can find pleasure in a class or prayer meeting. Yours respect fully, HOMER A. COLE. This letter will be referred to the sec retary of the board of trade who wil. probably inform Mr. Cole that so far the demand for attorneys has been met by the supply; that this is in some re spects an agricultural community though many citizens of the town and valley do not wear alfalfa seed in their hair from one year's end to another. Mr. Cole will also be told that the ten dency toward prohibition in Phoenix is not very threatening yet and that no one is driven to the class or prayer meeting for amusement. Many of the saloons are open all night every night in the year and there is sure to be at least one meeting of the city council each month. Then Mr. Cole can have a show here almost wherever he feels like it. THE FIRE FIEND Claims a Handsome Residence Pro perty in Bennett Addition. About S.ZO o'clock last evening a pil lar of fire was seen hovering over the region within, yet without the city, known to the public as the Bennett ad dition. The size of the flame left no room for doubt that it was a house and a larg-; one at that. Hundreds started in that direction and the Are appearing to be in The Evans Loan and Investment Company.

I and 3 West Washington Street. the Sininis addition which was but re cently taken into the corporation an alarm was turned in. The tire depart ing lit made a start, but lost interest when they discovered the scene of ac tion was in the rural district "between" the city. Had they continued their journey they could have rendered no assistance, first because an absence of alarm boxes necessitated sending the news in by slow freight: and secondly, because there wasn't a hydrant within ! half a mile. j The burning building proved to be the handsome residence property, occupied by Mr. E. L. Andrws and family, but owned by a non-resident. It was a brick structure of several rooms and rather high for a one-story house and altogether one of the best properties in that portion of the tract. It proved a total loss, though the greater part of the furniture and belongings of the oc cupants were saved by the neighbors, who responded quickly to the first alarm and worked faithfully as long as the houpe could be safely entered. The origin of the fire is unknown, but those first to arrive say that when they broke in the Harms were confined to the rear rooms and seemed to be in the roof. The family were all absent when the fire bi'oke out being at the residence of D. L. Murray on East Van Buren street, in attendance upon the wedding of I. H. Andrews, son of Mr. E. L. An drews, to Miss Lillian Murray. This happy occasion was most ruthlessly disturbed by the fire bell and as may well be imagined the disturbance was no less when the full particulars were learned. It is believed the house was insured, but to what amount was not learned last night. Had Bennett addition seen fit to join in the good work cf extending the city limits a year ago when the matter was first projected, instead ot blocking the wheels of progress, the alarm last night would no doubt have reached head quarters in time for the fire company to render assistance. But some day Dennett addition will get tired and want to come in, if it is not all burned up, and perhaps by that time the city will own its water works and every block will be adorned with a fire plug.
