A special meeting of the city council was held last nifrht to close up routine business begun at the regular meeting the night before. That having been disposed of a stranger presented a pe tition for a permit to establish a waffle stand in front of the National Rank of Arizona and run it t-ally after banking hours. The consent of the bank people had been secured for this arrangement. The permission was not only not granted, but the discussion came with in one vote of resulting in the removal of all the lunch siands now on the street and the adoption of a regulation prohibiting any within the life of the present council. Councilmen Sanders and McNeil were opposed to stands as as unsightly nuisances. Councilman Fickas charitably tolerated them, but Acting Mayor Dyer earnestly pleaded for them, pleading at tho same time for his own existence. He mid that for twelve years these stands had con stantly loomed up beitween him and starvation in the regular restaurants. The motion to prohibit the stands having failed by a tie vote. Council man McNeil moved it hat the waffle per mit be denied. The motion was lost by the same vote. A motion to grant it was similarly lost. The applicant con fused by this unusual parliamentary procedure, thanked ithe council for its kindness. He was not so thankful when the record was explained to him. His case, however, had been merely dismissed without prejudice. J. T. Dunlap came before the council in the matter of the sale of two lots, one owned by him and ithe other by L. W. Coggins, to the city for an exten sion of the proposed corporation yard at Seventh avenue and Jefferson street. The owners of these lots had asked $650 apiece for them. $50 more than ithe city had paid for the three lots bought a couple of months .tgo. Both gentle men believed that their lots were worth morethan that or had been worth more until the city undertook to establish a corral next door. Mr. Dunlap finally paid he would sell out for $600. which seemed to be the prevailing price for corral property, but Mr. Coggins was standing out for $650. The council concluded :that the corral property was big enough to meet the present needs of the city and that by the time more room was needed Mr. Coggins would be so tired of his proximity that he could be dealt with reasonably. A permit was given J. W. Ambrose A DELEGATE TO CONGRESS Gives Up Says There Is No Chance Now Will Introduce a Bill At Next Con gress for an Appropriation to Meet Expense in Unraveling the Following Difficulty: HOW McKee's Cash Store can sell Arbuckle Coffee for luc when others ask 20c. WHY they are selling Battle Axe To bacco at 41c when others are selling at 60c. WHERE in thunder do they buy a fine Plug Tobacco they can sell at 2Sc? WHEN are they going to stop selling Star Tobacco at 48e a pound? WHAT kind of a pull have they got with the soap company that they can sell 6 bars of Calla Lily Borax and 7 bars Laundry Soap for 25c? WHENCE comes those Little Gem Hams that they are giving away for 12c a pound? WHICH Is the man 'to make money faster the one who pays cash or the one who buys on credit? When Murphy, Wilson and Smith are all elected we will stop these slaugh tering prices, but now they go as long as the goods' last or till our inventor on October 15.

But we never will on the fight for low prices at the Store That's Always Busy. to put up a six-foot, light board fence on the south and east sides of the old Kales property, which he will convert into a corral. The permit was not really required, since ithe property lies outside the special fire limit. As a matter o fact they are many such fences within the limits. BOARD OF TRADE Important Hatters Discussed at Last Nights Meeting. The regular meeting of the board of trade was held last evening, and a large number of the direc tors was present. Considerable business of a routine na ture was transacted. Letters were read from Senators Shoup and W. A. Clark assuring the board of their hearty co operation in securing the apportion ment of some of the government appro priation for measuring the streams of the country, to be applied on the Verde and Salt rivers. The question o' the greatest import ance that was considerably discussed was the preparation of a new charter for the city. While Phoenix has grown in many respects far beyond the ex pectation of the citizens, it is a note worthy fact that her charter is ancierft, and the board real izing its responsibility to its members as an organization to ad vance the city's interest in every way has taken the matter up and at an early date will take some decisive ac tion. The directors were pleased to note the early arrival of tourists this year and as several who have come here for their health were induced to do so through the efforts of the secretary on his trip east last summer, it showed very plainly that, the advertising of the board done during the past year has resulted in great 'benefk to the town, and for this reason, if nothing else, the citizens should rally to its support and sustain it in all its under takings. The directors are all bro'ad minded men, looking to the interest of every section of the county, and 'the splendid record it has made as an or ganization during the past year cer tainly should command the support of every business man and farmer 'In the valley. o AN UNDEVELOPED EDEN Empire Land and Water Co.'s Big Enterprise. Messrs. John McBride, Earl Van Kirk, F. W. Dorn and Henry Behrens have returned from an extensive trip In southern California between Salton and the international line. The object of their trip was ito make a personal inspection of the lands proposed to be irrigated by the Empire Land and Water company's ditch now In course of construction, as well as the proba bility of their being able to furnish a never failing supply. The gentlemen are prosperous Salt River valley farm ers and while they have lost no faith in this valley it occurred no them that j iney mignt some day want more tarm's in another good country, so they com bined business, pleasure and a search for Information and beginning at the canal head followed the lline of the proposed dftch Us entire length. The canal heads about ten miles be low Yuma and a short distance north or the line. The l'.ne goes southwest till it crosses tho boundary, then west for a long distance, then north again into California and into an area forty miles across it to Salton, nearly all of which Is good Irrigable land, or will be when the ditch is constructed. The canal when finished will be sixty-one I miles long and wutt-r an area of hund- j reds of thousands of acres. The niit thing about a canal is its water supply. In this instance it will be never failing or at least not until the Colorado dri:;s up. The next thing to bp considered is the head. The head of the Empire ditch will be cut through a small granite bluif that faces ithe river, hence it can never wash out. No Jam will be needed as the river makes a turn at this point and the canal head will be on the concave aid? of the turn in .the river so the water will run into it without artificial diversion. The head, however, will not be con structed till after gum portion of the canal has been built. Just below the granite hill a big dry wash runs par allel with the river, then west for a 1 long distance and It Is proposed to util ize this as a cr-r.al bed. A cut has been made from the river into the wash be low the granite lull, the water turned I in and a big dredger is now engaged in tu.-ning the wash into an immense ir rigating canal. Mr. McRridv s.'iys the enterprise is a hug- one and will take a million d.i! lara to carry it out, but when it U finished, so far as he .-an ;iov judge, it will be a brilMarvt succi s.-. lie says the management expects to have water on to irrigable land by January 1, but if it don't get (here I'm- a year later it will still be a successful undertaking and if 'the company em get the canal completed in five years it will have accomplished a herculean task.

A STORY OF LONG AGO Which "Our Mark" Has Cut Out of the Programme. The democratic county candidates will have to keep "jumping sideways" for the next month: first into the Smith camp, then into the Wilson fold, and then back again. Last night they were under the leadership of Mr. Smit'n at Tempe. The next week they will probably be commandeered by Gen eral Wilson. The meeting at Tempe was not wholly successful. A consid erable part of the crowd was made up of the Phoenix faithful, who went over to see that a respectable audience would not be lacking. Between the two towns Curry's hall was comfortably filled. The meeting was presided over by Charles Woolf of Kyrene and was addressed by Mr. Smith and his fol lowers. The principal subject was the beauty ot harmony. Imperialism and trusts. The greater part of the Tempo audience returned to Phoenix shortly before midnight. There is, by the way, one story with which "Our Mark" always used to set Arizona audiences wiid with d-light. It related to a railroad wreck. There was a passenger in a sleeper. He was rudely awakened by the crash, but with great presence of mind he grabbed his trousers and hurried into .them. The north side of his pants, however, was turned toward the south. The rassenger emerged safely from the wreck and stood in the light of the blazing cars, gazing upon himself with pained wonder. "Are you hunt'" asked a fellow passenger. "No," he replied: "leastways, I don't feel no pain, but I seem to be twisted clean around." "'.'hat," 'Our Mark' was wont to say, "is the condition o.' ithe republican party; it is twitted olean around." Mark's old time admirers waited in vain last Monday night for the mellow old anecdote, but it was not related. A telephone message was received at The Republican office from Tempe last night conveying the thrilling informa tion that the story of the twisted man had been omitted from what was other wise a fair programme. The message added that it was suspected there that Mark was losing that power of ora tory which formerly distinguished him. It has been suggested that Mr. Smith, who is a gentleman of discernment, with a fine sense of the appr priatenes. of things, does not believe that this is a proper time to joke abcu: torn and twisted political parties.
