A very good house confronted Miss Leo nora Jackson, the violinist, at the Dorrls theater last night. A former appearance of Miss Jackson in Phoe nix was her best advertisement.

Fellows, the tenor, and Mr. William Bauer, the pianist. Whenever Miss Jackson returns to Phoenix she will be warmly welcomed. VISIT OF RAILROAD MEN.

Code, who has been In Washington for some months in thi employ o? the government in Its in vestigations on the subject of Irr I ra tion, has returned home again. lie spent a good part of yesterday In con ference with the water storage commissioners. Naturally he is being Interrogated considerably since his return regarding the prospects of Irrigation legislation this session of congress. While he is not a congressman, he has been In a position to talk with many members of congress and has heard more or less of the views of others. Mr. Code's observations are not par ticularly cheering to those who are anxlmjHly looking forward to govern ment aid In the construction of storage reservoirs. He says the subject recently semis to have received a setback, from ! an unexpected source. The question has ben over-agitated by enthusiasts and statements made for effect that were greatly overdrawn. The result has been that the eastern people, whom it was hoped to "educate." have been "buffaloed" and made to fear the su premacy of the west rather than a mutual Interest with the arid sections. Mr. Maxwell and others who have been championing the cause have pointed out that millions and millions of acres in the west are just waiting for a little government help when thev will rush into the market with a supply of agri cultural produce the magnitude of which appals the eastern farmer, who at once begins to tremble for his ov n market.

WEAKENING BOERS IN EAST TRANSVAAL Bat the War Is Not Understood to Be Nearly Over. London- Fob. 20. In a dispatch from Pretoria the correspondent of the Times nays there is no doubt that the Boers in the eastern Transvaal colony are greatly demoralized and they are so hard pressed that many are reluctant to continue the struggle. In an Inter rupted letter from Gen. Piet VHJoen to Mr. Schalkburger the writer urges the latter to do something? to counteract the spirit of surrender among- the Boers. It is rumored that Generals Botha an-i Schalkburg-er are trying- to arrange a meeting. In spite of these indications, however, there is no ground for believing that th war will be immediately over, says the Times correspondent. The influence of the Boer leaders may still prevail, and in any case the majority would refuse to be bound by the action of the Boers in the eastern Transvaal. REBELS DEFEATED. Wlllemstad. Island of Curacao, Feb. 20. The Venezuelan government has received reports that the partisans of General Matos, the leader of the pres ent revolution against President Castro, who, under the command of Generals Rlera and Penaloza, lately landed on the Venezuelan coast near Velade Coro. were defeated by the government troops on February 27. ONE ON THE OFFICER. WHY THEY WERE CHEAP. President McKlnley used to tell with a good deal of amu&ement a story which related to his early days In the law. On the way to and from his office he was accustomed to pass a butcher's shop, and for a long time was puzzled by a certain notice which he saw there. In the morning he would read, "Good pork sausage, 20 cents." On his return In the evening he would sometimes find those sausages still 20 cents a pound, but more often the notice was changed and the sign read: "Fine pork sau sages, 12 cents" or sometimes- 10 cents. The matter, he said, used to worry him. Sausages were not of so perish able a nature that they would not keep till the next day. and he could not understand it. So one evening he stopped at the shopmade some casual remark, and then inquired the price of sausages. 'Ten cents." said the shopkeeper. 'But." replied Mr. McKlnley, "they were 20 cents this morning." 'So they were, Mr. McKinley," re plied the butcher. "So they were. Then I had 'em: now I haven't. Sausages at 10 cents is simply to get me a reputa tion for cheapness. See?" . The future president saw, and was in the habit of saying thax a great many reputations were made in that wav. Youth s Companion. Officer Martin McNally of the sev enth police district is a most efficient patrolman, and his memory for faces is wondrous, it being claimed by hls4 brother officers that he rarely. If ever. forgets a "phiz," no matter if he has not seen it for years. The other day Officer McNally hap pened to meet a little body in skirts near Peebles Corner, crying bitterly. Tne big police officer loomed up over the Infant, who gazed up and In a tear ful voice said: "I'm lost!" "Where do you live, little man?" asked McNally, kindly, for he has chil dren of his own. "Boo hoo!" wailed the diminutive boy, gripping a whip he held In his hand tightly. "I don't know. Boo hoo!" "Come wid me," said McNally. "Pfat can th' fa-ather av ye be t'lnkin' av t' let a little wan av your soize sthray away?" And up the street went McNally, re solved to find the parents of the l.'tl' one and to administer a fitting reb'uke when he found them. After he hail proceeded a half square McNally met Officer "Pickles" O'Hearn coming down the street with all sails set. "Where y' goin?" asked "Pickles." "(Jim thryln' to folnd this little wan's parents." answered McNally. "Come off!" said O'Hearn. "Don't ye know your own children?" McNally stopped, astounded, and took his first look at the little one. Then, without a word he picked up lit tle Master McNally and went down the street to his home near by. It Is not known whether or not Officer McNally administered the threatened rebuke tu the parents. Cincinnati Enquirer. The sneak thief takes things easy.
