So remember A FUENACE EXPLOSION Frank Mayfield Severely but Not Dangerously Hurt. An explosion occurred at the power house of the Phoenix Water company early yesterday morning that came near ending the life of Mr. Frank Way field, one of the engineers. Some dam age was done to one of the boilers, or rather, the smoke-stack and the brick work surrounding the boiler, but it is comparatively trivial in the mater of expense. 1 1 caused a suspension of st reet car service for several hours yesterday, how ever, until another of the four boilers there could be put into service. .lust how the explosion occurred is yet something of a mystery, and there are two or more theories concerning it. There was no one present at the time but Mr. Mayfield. and he has not been in a condition since to fully explain it, indeed, he knows. He was picked up some distance from where his cap was found by Mr. F. O. Sholty. who was the first man to arrive after the explosion. He was then in a semi- unconscious state, and had received a severe eiit in the head and on one ear, while his eyes were filled with du:t and dirt. After being revived with water, he was taken home and given medical atten tion. It was feared at first that his sight was bad'y injured, but last night the indications were that nothing ser ious would result from his injuries. The boiler is a Hazeiton upright boiler, and is surrounded by a brick wall, the structure being eighteen feet high. There is a furnace door on the east side of the structure and another on the west side. Oil, sprayed with steam, is used for fuel. It Is believed by some who are familiar with the sit uation. th.it Mr. Mayfield started a fire in the east side of the furnace first, and that it went out while the oil and steam kept up its continual ilow; then he went next to the west door and started a fire. hut by that time there was an undue accumulation of as and oil in the furmu e. and the e:;-p!osi-n follow ,-d. The smoke-stack rti'.s Kiio-K''t t-'U ino strut tur aim eral feet of the bi ick work from top of the wall were jarred loos-e fell to the ground, while Mr. Ma: was thrown some distant. e away fortunately safe from the falling bi is. sov l!ie a nd field and d.- If trouble with a weak digestion, belching, sour stomach, or if you feel dull after eating, try Chamberlain's Stomach and Liver Tablets.

M. t 'ross of Oklahoma City, Ok., a candi date for the democratic nomination for d -Iega te in congress from k lit noma, was at the Hotel Paltoiior last night. Mr. Vows believes that Dennis Flynn will have no opposition for the rc;uo!i ca n nomination. "There will be no mention made of i he silver question in the next plat i'oi m of th'i democrats of tktahonia." said M r. 'ross last night. " We who live in okl.ihoina have no voice in na tion;: 1 politic s and therefore we just lei low the na t ion iil platforms of the party. Silver doesn't bother us much. We are interested in the sta tehood quest ion. We want single statehood and nothing else. Mr. Flynn wants double statehood so he can be sent to the t'nite-1 States senate, if Okla homa alone becomes a state we will have two senators and twa congress men. If t he I ndian territory is in cluded we will have six congressmen." Arthur Lee. a republican who lives in Oklahoma City, met Mr. Cross at the Baltimore. Mr. Lee is a staunch re publican, but dislikes Flynn. 'Ou delegate does not voice the sentiments of more than one-tenth of the people of Oklahoma," said Mr. Lee. HAS OIT GOOD PAPKIi.

This is one of the strongest and best attrac tions on tour. The very con servative c ritic on the San Francisco Hulletin, referring to a recent perform ance of this company in that c ity, said: " 'Old Jed Prouty.' which was re vived by Mr. Richard Golden and his company at the California theater last night, is undoubtedly one of the best plays of Yankee farm life. It is far belter than 'Way Down Fast. and as good as The old Homestead. Like the latter veteran, it destroys the nat ural sympathy for its hero, a simph. affectionate, tender-hearted but igno rant old man from the country, by tak ing him to the city and making him ridiculous among the surroundings of urban civilization. Jed Prouty. who is naturally all smiles and tears, homely humor and heart-wrenching kindness and goodness, becomes a clown when he is made to fee! upholstered chairs with wonder and to start back horrified at the sight of his niece in evening dress. The s ene in the rural court where Jed defends the bad boy of the village with such a grotesque imitation of the . manner or sophisticated pi -auers in ; law, but also with so much righteous wrath, is full of wholesome fun and I laughter thi.t oines fi om a happy :oui-e. The very ineffe- tual and con stantly repentant villain, in his intervals jof black-heal leanest, affords Jed a cham e to display his tears.
