In view of the Interest man. rested in b:te ball at the beginning of tin !oca' iteafen, it seems apparent tnat the sea con rlould be a prcspero-ts one for tie Phoenix players. A number of the "fans" who wit nessed Sunday's game between -tha True Blues and the DeMund learn ex pressed surprise at the clever work displayed on either side, the mor re markable because of the short time that the teams have been organized. Sunday's gr me tvas the third it a ser ies of five juries, the DeMund winning two by a score of 8-fi and 8-5. Sunday'? game going to the True Bluet by a score of 7-6. Hartwell, who pitched Sunday'? game, has just returned from Califor nia, where he has been playing in the southern league. He was in good form, having ten strike-outs to r.is credit. The hits made off him were bunched and the wild throwing in tnz seventh inning gave the True Blues a lead that the Demunds could . not overcome. Luego, the True Blue pit:h r. held the DeMund men down to six scat tered hits, several-times getting his last two men out with bases full. Taking it all in all. it was a game well worth seeing, which was showi by the manner in which the "rooters" applauded every play. The teams will line up next Sunday the same as last and a close and exciting game is an ticipated. Mr. DeMund has again taken charge of the team and the players expect to have their new suits, which will 1 e maroon with orange trimmings, for next Sunday's game. Arrangements are being made to have the diamond remeasured and rolled, something that is badly needed., as the in-field is i;t very poor condition. . With these im provements the base bail season ma be considered opened in earnest. The "Sanden-Eieetric" team of Den ver, Colo., has already requested dates for three games and will probably b" slated for September 19, 20 and 21. They play in Tucson on September 16, 17 and 18 and will play here on their way to the coast. Hart's stop of a swift grounder to second and a throw from his knees to first, putting the runner out and retir ing the side, was one of the features of Sundays' game. Long and Hartwell make a star bat tery and with Collins as extra pitcher will be heard from in the games with the Denver team.

Hi Brawley, an ex-Phoenix player, has returned from Ash Fork and will probably be back in the game again 1 sooi.. j The base ball fever seems to be ; spreading and several of the old time "fans" in the city seem to be affected. The latest indication of the spread of the malady is the proposition of Carl Graf, A. P. Walbridge and a few other "has-beens" to organize a' nine com posed exclusively of back numbers. t be called the "Has-beens," and to show some of these "kid nines" how theg-j.me really ought to be played. The nine has not been completed yet, but the boys say there is plenty of material in the city to choose from,, which is quite apparent to any one who has watched the game in Phoenix for ten or fifteen yars past. Thi recalls a game played in the city in February of 1881 between the Phoenix club and a nine from J'inal ami Silver King, composed of em ployes of the Silver King company. The visitors drove across the desert, a distance of some seventy miles, to play the game, which they won by a score of 30 to 12. Mr. Walbridge is probably the only member of the nine still residing In the territory, and has a vivid recol lection of the game, as he was hit in the head by a pitched ball, which floored him. He was the pitcher for the Pinal nine at the thne, but in this game played shortstop, the Silver King battery being in the points. Of the local nine Billy Widmcr was catcher, Dave Goldberg first base. Judge Joseph Campbell second base, Henry Wharton third bae. while Wil liam B. Lount played in the field. S. E. Patton was the umpire and gave general satisfaction. The visxtors were I royally entertained by the home team, j being quartered in th-; Bank Exchange hotel, which was kept by Mayor Ganz on the M.e now occupied by Gold water's store." The building was after" wards burned. HIGH ART GARDENING C. C. Montgomery Has a Trick That Is Valuable. The Salt River valley is making his tory daily, as a productive region, and the latest evidence of its fertility Is a genius in the shape of a man who holds at his finger tips a secret which will doubtless make him famous and rich. He isn't a card sharp; in fact, he doesn't know a royal from a bob tail flush. He ijn't a ' cattle shark. and likely couldn't distinguish between ' a mountain maverick and a full blooded Durham. He is just a plain honest, hard working rancher, but equipped with a go.d touch of Yan kee cunning. C. C. Montgomery works a small pieoe of land north of Phoenix, and that he works jt wisely and will he is furnishing grwd and sufficient proof. Several years ago Montgomery started to raise vegetables for the Phoenix market. He began on a. small scale, but tile quality of his products soon made the consequent demand far in excess of the capacity of his patch. His were the earliest tomatoi s on the mar ket and his th first grapes. He got the big prices of the early season, and when all other crops were gone, he was there wi;h his fruit and vegetables, until weks after his neighbor's season closed. Last year he had a twelfth of an iwe in tomatoes. Early in the spring when that staple was worth 20 cent per pound he supplied the mar ket. When the price dropped to 4 cen'is he let others cater to the trade, and when they were through, his to matoes again brought 20 cents to the pound. On his miniature patch he cleared $4V). This year he had two acres. 10,000 vines, planted. He had the first on the market and now scorns to pick his rmp at 2'i cer.ts. By the first of November the other growers' will be through and he will get 15 and 20 cents per pound. He expects to clear from $3,000 to $4,000 on the two acres and from November until January will supply the mrki. The dealers wonder at his gi iiiu? an.l attribute his success to the use of some chemical prepara tion which retards or hastens growth, according to its application. Mont gomery winks wisely, keeps his secret and reaps marvelous returns. He is at present experimenting with pistachio nuts, a Mexican dvlieacy, and has two trees well loaded. The product is worth about $1.20 per pound. He is of the be lief that the vanilla beau may be cul tivated m this valley and will raak tut experiment next year.

WILLIAMS He Found the Climate of the East Unbearable. Mr. Charles Williams returned yes terday morning from a visit with rel atives in Missouri. Last summer Mr. Williams, who had acquired a compe tency and a sobriquet by the culture of strawberries in this valley, sold his ranch and made preparation to visit relatives in the east whom he had not seen f.T many years. His wife having died he sent his two daughters to Los Angeh-s and provided them with funds sufficient for their maintenance until his return. He made arrangements to accompany the democratic delegates to the Kansas City convention, and se cured a berth. A few days before the departure of the delegation he received word that his mother was dangerously till hi canceled all his earlier arrange ments and lift for the east. About a month ago a letter was re ceived here from a woman at Los An geles with whom his daughters were stopping, making inquir; about him and leaving an inference that he had lift the country under suspicious cir cumstances. As a matter of fact a hundred persons in Phoenix, Including 'bankers and business men. knew of Mr. Wi'lliaims' whereabouts, but the let ter happened to come to the notice of none of t'hem until it had been pub lished. In the meantime Mr. Williams had written to his daughters to a wrong address and the letter was re turned to him at Kansas City. Then he learned of Che letter of inquiry and cut his visit short. He will leave to night for Los Angeles, where 'he will place his daughters in school or bring them back to Phoenix. Mr. Williams, who was not a living skeleton when he went away, has gained fifteen pounds in spite of the most miserable climate he ever encoun tered. Between heat and mosquitoes the nights were unbearable and he never had a good night's reat until he re turned to Arizona. o TO TRADE WITH DENVER. Flans Being Laid For Trade and Tourist Interchange. Mr. S. P. Clark will return Saturday from Green Mountain Falls, Col., where he conducts a hotel. Mr. Clark has spent considerable time in Denver, and as a representative of the board of trade has been endeavoring to bring about an arrangement whereby Phoe nix and Denver may mutually profit by an interchange of tourists. In discus sing his plans to a News representa tive a few1 days ago, Mr. Clark said: "We wish closer relations with Den ver. We want to induce our people to come to Denver during your fine weather here, and wish you to send us yuur people and tourists during your cold weather. We have had a special passenger rate to Denver until just re cently, when we finally got a $55 round trip rate. The rate has been $!'0 for th'? round trip. There is not a person in Phoenix with a dollar In his pockets who docs not desire to get out of Phoe nix at some time of the year, especially the season in summer time. They have been going to California for $2". round trip, but now we want them to come to Denver, which can return us the com pliment, thus doing each other good. People from Colorado who visit Arizona naturally want Colorado products in some measure at least. For instance. We cannot get a Greeley potato in Phoenix, although they are sold within thirty miles. Other products are the same. If we can promote closer trade relations, this will be remedied and Denver will have an increase of half a million a year. THE FOURTH ON THE "LINE" The United States Honored at the Capital of Ecuador. The following letter from General A. J. Sampson, minister to Kcuador, de scriptive of the celebration of the Fourth at Quito, was received in this city yesterday: United Stales Legation, Quito, July 8th, 1900. My dear Friends Perhaps you will be Interested to know how we spent the "Glorious Fourth'' in. a foreign laud. It tisista KirtLa isLa lisaWSsLaajrya S had been a busy day with us. The president, with military escort, the members of the foreign legations and attaches, the numerous consuls, prom inent citizens and all the Americans In this city (a half dozen) paid their re spects to the American flag by calling on us at this legation. The compli ments for the "grat republic of the north'' were numerous. Sorrre of, them' very forcibly presented 'Ihe superiority of our nation over all others because of the gr'at variety of resources, far more numerous than those of any oth er; that while other nations had their particular resources 'they were com pelled to buy so many things of other nations, while the United States could boast of home resources for almost ev ery class of manufacture and indus try. Because of this shi has became, in many respects, the leading nation of the world. All expressed the hope that she might not only hold her own, but continue to advance and prosper more md more. We tried to acknowledge all these kind words in the name of the United StaUs. Ovc-r the government palace, the governor's , the city hall, all legations and consulates their respective flags floated in the gentle Andean breezes, waving a friendly recognition of the "Stars and Stripes" which proudly waved from the Kgation flag-start". Aside from the reception of our nu merous guests the most we could do was to say "God bless that flag," and three cheers for it. May the people who live under ft be filled with, not merely pyrotechnic patriotism, but that genuine, heart felt patriotism described by our illustrious President McKinley. "Patriotism must be faithful as well as fervent; statesmanship must be wise as well as fearless not the statesman ship which will command the applause of the hour, but the judgment, of pos terity" The daily press of this city gave ex tended notice of this day. The closing entence of 'the "El Quiteno" was as follows: "To his Excellency, the En voy Extraordinary and Minister Pleni potentiary of the great republic, and to the citizens of that country living in Ecuador, we enthusiastically salu. you today, and our best wishes are that the colossal Statue that raises it self on the banks of the Hudson river may always be the emblem of the American people, "Liberty Illuminat ing the World." At night the artillery band, with six ty members, took possession of the block in front of the legation (with a military guard at each end to prevent any one passing), sent there by the or der of President Alfaro, with his com pliments, where, for two hours they enlivened the night with their music. The first piece played was "America" and It was as well played as I have ever heard it. How fully our hearts went out with the strains cf music as we followed them with the words "My country, 'tis of thee, sweet land of lib erty, etc." And we could but think that while our stay here has been so enjoyable, aft-.r three year.- ' absence from that "land we love the best." that it will be a great joy so soon to visit it. In two weeks we will have our facts turned toward "cur Own. our na tive land." Rofering to the music of the night. El Diario said, among o'.lvr things: "The artillery band executed last night a magnificent serenade in fron'.. of the United States ! gation in celebration of the anniversary cf that model repub lic." I have quoted from two of 'the press so that you can see the cordial greetings of this republic for ours. One of them referring to her as "the mod el republic' whil? the other personifies her as"Liberty illuminating the world." Remembering fhe extreme cordiality by which I have ever been received by the president, his cabinet and all oth ers, I most heartily reciprocate and wish for Ecuador a permanant peace and dewiopement such as her great re sources and climate meri1:. Much more I might add but will Co this when I see you. Mra. Sampson joins in kind regards. The presid. nt and family give us a good-by dinner Tuesday evening. No doubt we will have a fce time, as we always do with them. Fraternally yours, A. J. SAMPSON. HOW HK KNEW. Bess They say Maud Goody kissed a man at the Jones lawn party the other night.
