FIFTY-SEVENTH The Opening of Con gress Today ACCORDING TO ROUTINE The Only Event Which Will be a De parture From Ordinary Openings Will be the Formal Announce ment of the Death of President; McKinley Nothing Much Will Happen Before the Holidays- Washington. Dec. 1. The program for the opening day in the house to morrow, although it will follow rigidly the routine precedents, will bs interest ing and to a certain extent picturesque. Admission to galleries will be by card, of which two have been issued to each member. They will no doubt be crowd ed to the fullest capacity. The desks of popular members will be laden with flowers. The clerk of the house will call the members to order at noon after a prayer by the chaplain. The roll will be called by states. The speaker will be formally elected and escorted to the chair by a committee. General Henderson, whose re-election as speaker is assured, will then ad dress the house, after which Mr. Bing ham of Pennsylvania, the father of the house, a titular honor bestowed upon the oldest, member in point of continu ous service, will administer the oath to him. The speaker in turn will ad minister the oath to the members elect. The old officers of the house who were re-chosen by the republican cau cus will then be re-elected and sworn in. Following this resolutions will be adopted to appoint committees to In form the president and the senate that the house has elected General Hender son speaker and Mr. McDowell clerk. By resolution Speaker Henderson will appoint a committee of three to point a similar committee from the senate to inform the president that a quorum of the two houses has assembled and that congress is ready to receive any com munication he may have to make. Res olutions to adopt temporarily the rules of the last house and fix the daily hour of meeting also will precede the event of the opening day. the annual seat drawing. The president's message will be with held until Tuesday. General Grosvenor of Ohio will probably make the an nouncement to the house of the death of the late President McKinley and offer resolutions upon which the house will act. On Tuesday that portion of the pres ident's message referring to the death of President McKinley will probably be referred to a select committee to ar range a program of eulogies. It is a remarkable coincidence that President McKinley was chairman of the committee which arranged th; pro gram when President Garfield died. Mr. Klaine pronounced a eulogy upon that occasion. EHhu B. Washburn was chairman when Lincoln died and George Bancroft, the historian, was the orator. After Tuesday the house will proba bly adjourn for three days at a time until the congress recesses for the Christmas holidays. Speaker Hender son will occupy this time in preparing the committee lists which will be an nounced as soon i the house convenes after the holidays. Practically no bus iness will be transacted before the holi days. THE SENATE. Washington, Dec. 1. The annua 1 message of President Roosevelt will not be received until Tuesday. -On this account the session o" the senate Mon day will be exceedingly brief. It Is not now expected that anything will be aone on tnat day beyond the announce ment of the death of Senator Kyle, fol lowing which the senate, in accordance with custom, will adjourn for the day. On Tuesday the president's message will be read and after its reading the announcement of the death of Presi dent McKinley will follow at once, whereupon under a precendent estab lished when irresldenta Lincoln and Garfield were killed, resolutions pro viding for the appointment of a com mittee to act with a similar committee of the house of representatives to take appropriate action relative to the mat ter, and then culling for the immediate adjournment for the day will be adopt ed. Heretofore committees have been appointed to arrange details of public exercises and it is understood that ac companying the plan to be pursued in this instance that later in the session some public man of distinction will bti invited to deliver a eulogy in the capi tol. Wednesday and Thursday will be de voted to the introduction of bills. A& usual there will be a flood of them. Among the first bills of importance to- be presented will be the ship subsidy bill, which rill be introduced by Sena tor Frye and the Nicaraguan canal bill, which Senator Morgan will present. Senator Frye has not entirely complet ed his bill, but It is said today that it would be different In many details from the old bill c.f last session. That meas ure was framed by former Senator Ed munds. Senator Frye himself is the author of the new bill. Senator Mor gan's canal bill will be a duplicate of Representative Hepburn's bill on the canal question. V Other early bills of importance will be one looking to the construction of a submarine cable from the western coast of the United States to Hawaii and another providing for the estab lishment of a new executive depart ment to be known as the department of commerce. On Thursday the senate will adjourn until the folowing Monday. The gen eral opinion among senators is that very little real work will be done before the Christmas holidays. The first subject demanding attention Is reciprocity. Various treaties are now pending In the senate looking to com mercial agrements between the Unit ed States and other countries. Senator Aldrich will renew his efforts to have those treaties which already have been reported from the committee on foreign relations referred to the committee on finance, on the ground that they deal with tariff questions. The friends of the treaties will oppose this demand and a preliminary skirmish is expect ed to ensue and will probably serve to develop some Interesting features. AGAINST TEXAS SALOONS. Waco, Tex., Dec. 1. Representatives of the various anti-saloon and temper ance organizations of Texas are gath ered here for an important conference. Plans will be laid for a systematic and vigorous warfare against the liquor traffic. The leader of the movement la H P. iailey of Houston, late prohibi tion candidate for governor. DWINDLING DOWN Casualties of the Saa Franc sso Ferry Boat Disaster- San Francisco. Dec. 1. The number of lives lost in last night's collision in the bay between the ferry boats tian Rafael and San?alito is still a matter cf conjecture and will probably never be accurately determined. So far as known late this afternoon only three persons are actually known to be miss ing. They are W. G. Crondall, secre tary of Syrup Relinlng works, this city, a resident of Sasaulito; George Tread way, a waiter on the San Raefael, and the 3-ycs.r-old ton of Mrs. Walter of Ross valley. Oct of all the conflicting stories told by survivors none appeared that posi tively asserts that some friend or rela tive is missing. The officers of the sunken vessel strongly maintain that nearly all were saved. About twenty people were injured. The only body recovered so far is one supposed to be that of Crondall. It was washed ashore at Ar.erel Island this morninff. VICTIM OF CHRISTIAN SCI EXCEL Miss Lund. Professor at Syracuse Uni versity Was a Desclple. Syracuse, Dec. 1. Miss LunJ. profes sor of vocal music at Syracuse Uni versity, lost her life through being a Christian Scientist. She died last week from anaemia and no doctor was call-i until a short time before she died. It is known that for a long time priot to her death Miss Lund had been a disci ple of Mary Baker Eddy and had made frequent trips to Boston for treatment by Christian Scientist healers. It is said that Miss Carrie L. Stone, with whom Miss Lund lived at 601 Cotnstoctc avenue, is an ardent Christian Scientist and had much to do with her conver sion. Miss Lund had been in poor health for two or three years and at times had been unable to attend to her college du ties. She would not listen to her friends and send for a physician. When she was nearly dead Dr. John L. Heffron was called, but it was too late to help her. CUBANS SEE THE PRESIDENT. Make Personal Appeal for Reduction of Duties on Cuban Products. Washington, Dec. 1. The delegation of Cubans, representing the General So ciety of Merchants and Business Men of the island of Cuba, are well satisfy J with their first day's visit in Washing ton. They were received most cordial by President Roosevelt at 10 o'clocK yesterday morning, they visited Secre tary of War Root and Secreary Gage before noon. COLLEGE MEETING. Representatives of the Middle States and Maryland. Syracuse, X. T.. Dec. 1. The asocia tion of Collies and Prepafatory Schools of the middle states and Mary land bean its fifteenth annual meet ing yesterday at Syracuse university and win continue through tomorrow. The names of many prominent educa tors are found .on the programme, which is one of unusual interest. Presi dent Eliot of Harvard reads a paper on "Freedom of Speech in Connection with Education," and other partici pants include President Schurman of Cornell university. President W. H. P. Faunce of St- Claire McKelway of Brooklyn. President M. Woolsey Stryk er of Hamilton College, and Professor Edward E. Hale, Jr., of Union College. OHIO COLLEGES. j Cleveland, Ohio. Dec. 1. Tne colieg I iate and secondary school Instructors ! of eastern Ohio and western Pennsyl vania held their second annual confer ence at Western Reserve university In this city. last week. The instructors in charge are Superintendent E. C. Cary of Warren, Ohio, Professor J. W. I Perrin of Western Reserve university ' and Superintendent H. M. Parker of Elyria. The morning session was op ened with an address of welcome by President Thwing of Western Reserve university. The session then took up the discussion of the question. 'What Has the Secondary School a Right to Expert from the College?" Superin tendent W. L. McGowan of Warren, Pa., J. Rouse Bisrop of Cincinnati, Pro fessor C. E. Lord of Franklin, Pa., and ' D. C. Rybolt of Akron led the discus sion. Inter school athletics was con sidered at the afternoon session. Mayor Tom L- Johnson has promised to ad dress the educators this evening. THE BUCKET SHOPS Invite the Attention ot Cotton Commission Men Growers Desiring to Gamble Patron ize Them to Their Financial Dis advantageHow Prices are kept Down. New York, Dec. 1. Cotton corn mis sion men. both in this citv and in the south, are fifce to face with the fact I that their business is being ruined by the bucket shops. All over the south bucket shops have been springing up like mushrooms during the last few months. Well posted cotton commis sion men say that there are at least twice as many bucket shops in the south as there were a year aero. Every southern city or town of any size has a number of them. From these private wires radiate until towns of even the smallest size have their bucket shops. It Is possible to trade In grain and provisions, but the trading Is almost exclusively in cotton. More than half the trading in cotton in the south Is now done through the bucket shops. The percentage of the business through legitimate channels is constantly becoming less. If they continue to lose business so rapidly legitimate commission men will soon have very little left. Bucket shops are alro able to offer inducements to customers which mem bers of the cotton exchanges cannot offer. A year ago last September the j Xew York and New Orleans cotton cs- j changes put Into effect a rule which fixes the minimum commission to be charged a non-member at $10, and this "commission law" has had a great deal to do with the rapid development of bucket shop business. Bucket shop j men, not being bound by any rules. charpe any commission they see fit. The bucket shop men will, moreover, execute orders for broken lots and the small traders, who are largely i.n the majority, drift to the bucket shops. The "guiek action" of bucket shop traders is of course the strong attrac tion which draws a class of customers who only wish to gamble, and who would never think of dealing In cotton futures In a legitimate way. The bucket shop craze in the south is not only affecting the business of the cotton brokers, however, but It is oper ating directly against the cotton rais ers. Every well posted cotton man says that the price of cotton would be higher if it was not for the great amount of bucket shop business. The bulk of the orders placed with bucket shops are on the buying side of the market, while the bucket shop men. whose Interest Is always opposed to that of their customers, exert their every endeavor to bear the market. The Xew York and Xew Orleans cot ton exchanges have taken the matter up and an effort will be made to pro tect the market. ELK'S MEMORIAL SERVICES A Large Audience Witnessed the Im pressive Ceremonies The Elks' memorijil service at the Dorris theater yesterday afternoon was the most impressive memorial service ever witnessed in this city, with the single exception of the service held in memory of President McKinley. The theater was filled both upstairs and down and had the attendance been much larger admission would have bi-en hard to secure. The decorating were in keeping with the occasion. The rdestal of the ex alted ruler, surmounted by an elk's head and decorated In the colors of the order, occupied the center of the stage and the other three stations were respectively In the center of ench of the three sides of the auditorium, the ar rangement being significant of the lodge room. Each station was occupied by its lodge officer and was appropri ately decorated. At the rear of the stage hung a drop curtain presenting a wooded scene, rich in foliage and making an appropriate background for the palms, potted plants, evergreens, chrysanthemums and other flowers which lent their beauty to the scene. Promptly at 2 o'clock the members of the lodge, with the Pioneer band at their head, marched from the lodge room to the theater. The exalted ruler cf the lodge and the speakers of the hour were seated on the platform, while the members of the lodge for the most part sat In a body. The opening exercises were preceded by a funeral march by the orchestra and followed by a quartette composed of Mrs. Gilland. Mrs. Foote. Mr. An drews and Mr. Masten, singing the "Lo.-t Chord" most beautifully. Tha members of the order sang the opening ode of the lodge, after which Rev. E. A. Penick offered an Invocation. After the "Angel's Serenade," a very pretty orchestra piece. Governor N. O. Murphy, who is a member of the order, was introduced and delivered a very Interesting short address on the subject of "The Four Stations," in which he eulogized the principles and objects of the order, referring to the four prin ciples upon which the institution is founded. He included In his remarks the reciting of Longfellow's psalm of life, which was most appropriate to the occasion. "Pilgrims of Xight." a contralto solo, was sung very sweetly by Mrs. J. G. Foote and it was followed by "The Palms." a baritone solo by Mr. George E. Combe, his rendition being highly entertaining. Mr. Frank T .vmn n m j fie a vcrv eln- onent talk in memoi-v nf th Heart brothers of the order and especially the' two who had been called within the last year. William O. Petrie and Robert McCleary, and in memory of whom yes- terday's service was particularly ar- ranged. Thoush neither man died In ! this city, both were well known here, having Joined Phoenix lodge early In its history and having resided here for some time. Mr. Kugene Redewill. who, though a young man. is well known as a very talented violinist, played a selection on that Instrument, being accompanied on the piano by Prof. Strobridge. "The Holy City," ever a beautiful song and most appropriate for such on occasion, was sung by Mrs. DAlta Gil land, whose rich soprano voice has frequently been heard in Phoenix mus ical circles. Mr. G. P. Bullard was the last speaker, his subject being "The Brotherhood of Elks He spoke very clearly and defended the order against many unjust criticisms and explained so nearly as might be publicly done, not only the teachings but the practice of the members of that society In all matters of fraternal relief. He paid special tribute to the charity and vlr- tues demanded of the membership and to the supreme respect and protection thrown around the home circle. "Fear Xo,t Ye. Oh Israel," a bass solo, was sung by Mr. I. H. Andrews and the closing ritualistic ceremonies were followed by Rev. C. "V. Cowan In the benediction. The audience Joined In singing "Xearer My God to Thee." The orchestra was under the direction of Prof. Smith and Mrs. W. K. Porter was the accompanist for several of the musical numbers. NEW TRANSCONTINENTAL LIME In Which Senator Clark Is Interested- Denver, Dec. says: Senator 1. The Denver Post William A. Clark of Montana and Thomas F. Walsh of Col orado have, it is rumored, joined Issues In railroad construction and will build practically a new transcontinental rail road. The Chicago, Rock Island & Pa- cific Is eaid to be in with Senator Clark and Mr. Walsh. The new transconti nental line would give Senator Clark an outlet for his Los Angeles-Salt Lake road, which has been left without one through the absorption of the two Col orado mountain lines by George Gould. The Rock Island would get a new and short route to California. Walsh some time ago incorporated a railroad to be built from Ouray via Gunnison toPu eblo. If his alliance with Senator Clark Is perfected he will build on probably to Liberal, Kas., where he will connect his road with the Rock Island. It is said that Senator Clark and Walsh will meet this week in Washington and complete a deal whereby they will be come partners in railroad construction. FUNERAL OF H. H. LOGAN Attended hy a Large Procession of Mourning Friends- The funeral of H. II. Logan was held yesierday afternoon from the residence on East Washington street and a lare number of friends followed the remains to the cemetery. The family of Mr. Logan came here from Los Angeles, th remains being escorted to Phoenic from Guaymas by a friend of the de ceased. The casket was borne by Messrs. W. T. Smith. C. F. AInsworth. -T. E. Dal ton, J. E. Walker, J. W. Crenshaw and B. A. Fickas, all former friends of tha dead man. At the cemetery Rev. E. A. Penick read an Impressive funeral cere mony and the last earthly tributes thac can be paid by men were laid at the bier of one who was loved, honored an-1 respected by the community at large. Of his sudden illness and unexpected death It has been learned that nrime j time ago he wrote from Guaymas to his family in Ixs Angeles that he was quite ill, but thought he would be bet ter la a few days and as soon as he felt strong enough to travel would leave for Los Angeles. He did Improve great ly and wrote to that effect and the very morning of his death he was so much better that a friend had brought him a nourishing breakfast. But the im provement was only the seeming change for the better that so often pre cedes dissolution. PASSEXGER LOST AT SEA. Either Swept Off by a Heavy Sea or He Jumped Overboard. Boston, Dec. 1. A second cabin pass enger on the Dominion liner Common wealth, supposed to be Arthur lio'ton of Toronto, Ont., was found to be miss ing from the steamship just before Bos ton Light was sighted this morning. It Is believed that he was washed over board during the night or leaped in the water. Bolton appeared at supper last night and was last seen about 9 o'clock in the evening. He was then wandering about the ship. This morning It was found that his bed had not been slept In and his room-mate could give no explana tion of his absence. Bolton was one of the last to come aboard the ship at Liverpool. He had not arranged for passage, but was ac commodated at the last moment. He had one trunk. He appeared like a man who had been through some se vere illness and asssociated very Utt.e with his fellow passengers. However, it was learned that he was a civil en gineer, that when the Klondike stam pede set in he had gone there, and re mained some time. It is said that more recently he had been In India and thai he had beeen treated in a Singapore hospital for malarial fever. " Many of the passengers had their at tention attracted to him by his evident ' efforts to keep out of their way. He always seemed to be deep in thought, Xobody noticed Bolton go on deck, most the passenger being seasick. The ship was pitching and rolling in rh seas and every now and then a wave dashed the length of the deck and some of the passengers think the missi.i man was swept away. GOLD OF THE ARCTIC Will Figure Largely in Next Year's Output Some Rich Finds Made Late in the Season in New Regions Railroad and Telephone Connections Are Talked of. Seattle, Dec. 1. According to thot.e who have been closely watching the de velopment of the gold fields of the north for the past few years the Arctic region will next year attract large at tention. Miners who have claims in the Kee walik river creeks consider themselves as slightly more, fortunate than those having claims in other portions of the far north. The Keewalik river district contains a very large quantity of spruce timber 12 to IS inches In diame ter and from 50 to 60 feet long. Those who have engaged In mining In Alaska know what an abundance of timber means. On the Kougarok river, the first river west of the Keewalik, there have also been located some splendid prospects, especially on French, Bear, Chicago, Circle and Wade creeks. Some very rich finds have also been made on Emnachuck river, three miles west of the Kougarok, and also on the tribu taries to that river. Old Giory, Perry and Silver creeks are rich in gold, and some remarkable pans have been washed out by miners working there. Another stream which promises very rich developments Is the Good Hope river and its tributaries. Placer. Espa ranza, Clark, Jamison. Igloo, Summit and other creeks. These various creeks promise to become as rich as Candle creek has been proved to be, where pans from 50 cents to $19 were washed out last summer. A greatfdeal of work will undoubtedly be done at the upper end of the Kee walik river during the next season. There is plenty of fine timber there and over fifty men have remained there to continue work during the winter. These men are working on Stanley, Glazier, Gold Run and Dome creeks. During the past season on some creeks tributary to the Keewalik pans have been taken out containing from $0 to $20 in gold. On Candle creek Louis Sundrjuist. who is well known In Seat tle, took out a pan of iy. On this same creek two men took out 23 ounces in one day. Gold Run, Stanley and Glazier were located by two men who were slaked by Thomas and Pepper two years ago. Good Hope river district promises to become well known during the coming season, and miners- who have been there preplusy bijr things from that stream. Transportaticn to the Arctic district is no more difficult than to Xome. The Keewalik river Js navigable for steam launches 75 miles from the mouth. By water the district Is about 4(U) miles from Xome, and by land 200 mlies. Already there Is talk of railway con nection with Xome. and it is quite likely that all of the Arctic camps will be connected by telephone with Xome some time next season. With railroad connection the Arctic district will be no further away from civilization than Is Xome. and Xome is rapidly becom ing a center of civilizing inlluence. There are a large number of men in Seattle now who spent the summer in the Arctic district. . and all of them talk most encouragingly of the pros pects there. MARY THOMPSON WAS DESERTED Shot Somehow After Mr. Fenton, At cou nlaiit. Had Sailed for England. Xew York, Dec. 1. Some romance was thrown yesterday into the case of Mary Thompson, the young Englishwo man, who went to St. Vincent's hospital on Friday with a bullet wound in her breast and refused to tell how, when or where she was shot even after she had been taken to Bellevuc a prisoner charged with attempting suicide. A man who said he was John Q. Gibson, In the real estate business at 346 Broad way, called at Bellevue to ark about her. He said that a man who had been payi.tg some attention to her had sailed on the Kaiser Wllhelm der Grosse on Saturday morning. The name of Miss Thompson's friend, Gibson said, was Cecil Rhodes Fenton. and he was an accountant. Fenton. ac cording to Gibson, recently formed a partnership with Thomas Clemens, an other accountant, and they opened oifi ces in room SOU at 34 Broadway. That is the Xew York Life building.

Miss Thompson called on him, told him that the accountants had closed their office and semed very anxious to find Fenton. Gibson learned later, he says, that Fen ton left Xew York the next morning. It was only a few hours after her in effectual search for Fenton that the young woman went to the hospital. Gibson said that he address was 22 West Fifteenth street. There is a boarding house at that number. Re porters who went there last night were told that Miss Thompson had stayed there for two weeks beginning October 27, that she talked like an English wo man, ate her breakfast In bed every morning and "acted in other ways like an English woman." She said she had come from the Margaret Louisa home. a Y. W. C. A. club and home for young women in Sxteenth street near Fifth avenue, and when she left she said she was going there to live. It was said at the home last night that Miss Thompson had stayed there recently for two days, but left the home on Friday. She met with no accident there It was said. Xothing was knoy'n about her male friend. Miss Thompson Is reported to have said that she came over from England on the same steamer with Fenton and afterward visited the Pan-American exposition with him. WARXED THE MOOXSHIXERS. Blasts From Horns Sounded the Xews of the Approach of Officers. Xichmond, Va., Dec. 1. United States Revenue Collector Asa Rogers of this district received reports today from the postoffice, in Carroll county, a rugged Ing that all their efforts at raiding il licit stills this season had been thwart ed by the use of horns with a thorough system of signals which were taken up from every cabin in the mountain territory where the moonshiners were known to be doing business. Xear Pick postoffice, in Corrol county, a rugged coun try, a long ti n horn would be sounded as the officers approached. The sound would be taken up ahead of them by the occupants of the next mountain home and inthis way their coming was told over the whole coun try, and their vlFlt made so public that they were forced to leave the country, giving up their hunt for Illicit distil leries.

C0PFER MINE FBATJD Sends New York Grocers Into Bank ruptcy. Xew York, Dec. 1. In the filing yes terday of a petition in bankruptcy against X. Lawrence & Co. of Dobbs Ferry on behalf of Austin Xlchdlu & Co. and E. C. Hazard & Co.. wholesale grocers, and H. H. Palmer & Co., tea merchants, there was afforded a hint ef an interesting examination Into -i recent copper mine deal.

Xathaniel Lawrence, according to his lawyer, C. E. Travis, was induc ed to sink some liiO.OOO In a copper mine, which according to Lawrence and his lawyer, has turned out to be a myth and the "promoters" who boomed it are now in parts unknown.

FILIPINO FINANCE Situation Beginning to Awaken Alarm DANGEROUS DOLLAR The Commercial Community Came to Find Oat That the Parity of the Omnipresent Mexican Dollar With Gold Could Not Be Sustained. In Consequence There is Great Alarm Remedial Legislation Needed. Manila, Dec. 1. The financial situa tion In the Philippine Islands Is caus ing much alarm. In an interview pub lished In Manila, Henry C. Ide, chief of the department of finance and Justice, referred to the probable enforcement of the alteration in the lmmedate future of the present government parity of the two Mexican dollars for one gold dollar. The United States postoffice here now refuses, except to government employes, to issue money orders in exchange for Mexican silver. The banks of Manila have been making tfom 6 to 8 per cent on exchange. Merchants and others ere forced to carry their accounts in Mexican silver. The commercial community had re lied upon the United States Philippine commission to continue the value of the two Mexican dollars for one gold dol lar, which the commission Itself creat ed. The commission Is unable to act In the matter without the authority of congress. This authorization has been requested and Charles A. Conant, a special commissioner of the war de partment, has been sent to investigate the state of coinage and banking in the Philippines and report to the sec retary of war and make recommenda tions for remedial legislation. He is now in Washington and is the bearer of the commissions' views in this matter. There are stores in Manila that have been compelled to accept two Mexican dollars for one gold dollar. HE ALT TO HANG Death Sentence of a Soldier Approved hy the President. Washington, Dec. 1. President Roose velt has confirmed the sentence of death imposed by a general court mar tial convened at Xueva Caceres, in the Philippine islands, upon Private Daniel Healy, company C, Twenty-seventh in fantry, who was tried for and convicted of murder and sentenced to be hanged. This is the second instance since President Roosevelt entered upon his duties as president of the United States wherein a death sentence Imposed, upon an American soldier has been approved by him. 15 JUNCTION BY JITRY A Question Raised in the He at7 gat a Breaking Cases. The injunction suits brought against the farmers to prevent them from breaking the headgates of the Arizona Water company was intended to take the matter out of the hands of juries, since It has been demonstrated that a conviction by a Jury cannot be pro cured. A question has been raised if the company can avoid a Jury by an in junction proceeding. The last legisla ture passed a law bringing all litigation Involving matters of fact within the province of the Jury and since the bill filed by the water company deals with mat ters of fact as well as of questions of law It Is doubtful If the defendants can not call for a jury. It is the opinion of many lawyers that a jury may be demanded in these cases. It is a ridiculous thing to suppose that a jury could dissolve an injunction or make a temporary one permanent, for nowhere else In Arizona has It ever been hinted that that power rested any where else than In the court. But the law has been so framed that the ques tion will at least be fought over.
