PHOENIX. ARIZONA. FRIDAY MORNING, SEPTEMBER 12, 1902. VOIi. XIII. NO. 117. THE ROOSEVELT ALL RIGHT EXCEPT AS TO CUBA The Beef Sugar Republicans of Utah Garry the Day They Endorse the National Administration, Though They Are Silent on the Subject of Cuban Reciprocity This Oversight Is Made Good By a Ringing Endorsement of the President for Re-Election The State Campaign Was Opened Upon the Adjournment of the Ccnvention Last Night By Senator Beveridge. Ogden. Utah, September 11. The re publican state convention today nom inated Joseph Howell of Wellsville, Cache county, for congress, Judge W. M. McCarty of Sevier county for su preme court justice, and adopted a platform in which mention of Cuban reciprocity was omitted. On this point the beet sugar interests of the state won out after a somewhat bitter and protracted debate in the committee on resolutions. The friends of Congressman Sutherland, who was one of the republican "insurgents" on the reciprocity question in the last ses sion of congress, were determined that a specific endorsement of the presi dent's Cuban policy should have no place in the platform, and this policy prevailed. In this they were aided by the church people, who insisted on a compromise platform, which was adopt ed, cordially endorsing President Roosevelt's administration, but leaving out direct reference to the proposed 20 per cent reduction. An amendment to the platform offered by Congressman Sutherland, declaring it to be the sense of the convention that "President Koosevelt be nominated for president in 1904 as his own successor," was car ried with a whoop, the delegates stand ing in their seats and cheering for some time. The platform adopted deplores the death of President McKinley, recog nizes in Theodore Roosevelt-his worthy successor, and expresses unqualified approval of his administration. It en dorses the republican national platform of 1900, favors the protective tariff as it now exists, recognizes the right of labor to organize for its own protection, and favors a national board of arbitra tion to decide controversies between capital and labor. It favors the pas sage of Iaw3 providing for governmen tal supervision and the control of trusts. It condemns ".unjust and op pressive aggregations of capital," but also condemns "the democratic policy of destruction" as regards corpora lions. Democratic assaults on the army and navy are condemned as being pure ly partisan and productive of rebellion and bloodshed. The government is con gratulated on the final steps toward the BURT ALVORD SURRENDERS . r. -:.?mi. Chased and Crippled He Gives Up the Lift of a Bandit. Denver, Col., September 11. A spe cial to the News from Tucson, Ariz., fays Burt Alvord, the famous train robber and outlaw, voluntarily surren dered to Sheriff Lewis of Cochise county and "Billy" Stiles, an old pal, who turned state's evidence and joined tha Arizona Rangers.

COMMERCIAL FINANCIAL Copper Grows Cull Again Gram Moves Upward. New York, September 11. The "street" experienced a genuine sur prise today when the directors cf the St. Paul load placed common stock on a 7 per cent basis.

United States Senator Beveridge of Indiana opened the republican cam paign in Utah tonight, speaking at the cpera house to the delegates to tho convention. The senator was given close attention and was frequently applaud ed. United States Senators Clark and Warren of Wyoming were also present and spoke briefly. Senator Beveridge's speech was largely devoted to financial subjects. On the subject of trusts h said: "The only law ever enacted to regu late them was passed by a republican congress; the only president who ever attempted to enforce that Jaw was our republican president, Theodore Roose velt. The tariff is not the parent of trusts. If it is, why did not trusts de velop during the Morrill war tariff.that lasted from the civil war to the enact ment of the disastrous Wilson tariff? If the tariff causes trusts, why did they lirst appear in free trade England? If trusts exist in different countries with different tariff systems, must we not look deeper for their cause? And is not that cause to be found in the complex conditions of modern life? The in dividual dealer, the little corporation of a generation ago could not produce and distribute the necessities of mod ern life. When each community was separated from the rest of the nation, because there was no means of com munication, its wants coula be supplied by individuals and small concerns. But the railroad, the telegraph, all th agencies of modern communication have knit the nation into a single com munity, and individuals acting separ ately can no longer do the work re quired by modern life; and organiza tions of industry become vaster than the little concerns of the old days, as the consolidated industrial nation is vaster than the little separate com munitics of the old days.

GATES STILWELL'S PURSUER A Fight to Keep Control of Guardian Trust Co. Out of Latter's Hands Kansas City, Mo., September 11. When the application for the discharge of the receiver of the Guardian Trust company came up today for hearing be fore Judge Amos M. Thayer of the United States circuit court it was de veloped that John W. Gates and his associates had begun a fight to pre vent the restoration of the company to the control cf those stockholders iden tified with Arthur E. Stilwell. It was the Gates contingent that ousted Stilwell from the presidency of the Kansas City, Pittsburg and Gulf railroad (now the Kansas City South ern), which Stilwell had built, and threw it into the hands of a receiver. It was also through the efforts of the Gates people that Stilwell over a year ago was ousted from the presidency of the Guardian Trust company, which he had organized. Today when Gates' attorneys argued to the application of Stilwell to have the Guardian Trust receivers dis charged, they did so on the theory that Stilwell's move was to place the com pany in the hands of his friends and eventually to merge it with the United States and Mexican Trust company, which was organized to promote the Kansas City, Mexico and Orient road, another property projected by Stilwell. This the Stilwell people deny, saying that the affairs of the trust company have progressed so favorably that it now could be conducted more econom ically without a receiver. The inten tion, it is said, is to eventually wind up the affairs of the company. M'GOVERN CORBETT FIGHT. n Subject of Protest by Citizens of Lcuisville. Louisville. Ky., September 11. At a mn?s meeting of 800 citizens held here tonight a strong p"test against the fight between Terry McGovern and Young Cmbott. scheduled to take place in this city on September 22. was made.

It is also suggested that In case the officials refuse to act. warrants should be swern out, against the principals and injunctions secured to stop the fight. A committee, headed by Helm Bruce, a prominent attorney, was ap pointed to take any legal action that might be found advisable. THE MEAT MERGER. The Deal Will Probably Be Closed Today. Chicago, September 11. The Record Herald tomorrow will say: "The long-expected merger of th' great meat packing interests of tho United States will go into active and open operation on Saturday, September 27. unless there should be an entirely unlooked-for change in the plans agreed upon by all of those concerned in the deal at a meeting to be held here today.

Mr. Hewitt also said that the coal operators would not agree to ar bitrate with John Mitchell, but he be lieves they would consider the griev ances presented by their employes. STOUT'S SUCCESS A SURE THING He Swept Half the Town in the Primaries Returns Last Night Indicate That He Was a Cyclone in the Country. His Supporters Claim He Wi 1 Have a Hundred Delegates. The democratic primaries came fully up to expectations ror liveliness amounting to disorder yesterday. A great many old scores were settled at the polling places, and when It was all over the feeling among the democratic factions was no better than it had been for the last two years. The fight was mainly over the nom ination for sheriff, but the line was drawn all along the contests for nomina tlons for the other officer, so that It is quite probable that all the candidates who supported Sanders and Norton In their joint effort for the nomination for sheriff will participate in their de feat In the convention. It was the Young Men's Democratic club and Nor ton against the old-line' democratic party. The club entered upon the contest in the city with confidence of success. That confidence grew all day until along In the middle of the afternoon the Sanders men were claiming th four wards of the city and the Stout faction was almost willing to- conceds them three, with little hope of saving the remaining one. The Mexican vote was more prevalent than it had been at the Wilson-Shan non primaries; there were Mexican faces seen in town that certainly did r.ot belong here, and many of them were so, unfamiliar that their owners were thereby enabled to vote at more than one primary without fear of de tection. There were 797 votes cast in the four wards, and everybody known that there are not that many democrats in the city. The Stout supporters began to gather hope early in tVe third ward. It be came evident thai a very overwhelm ing majority of the American vote was being cast for that ticket, and the man agers believed they were sure of at least twenty-five of the Mexican vot. which a careful canvass of the ward showed to be less than 100. The count disclosed, that nearly half the 316 votes in that ward were cast by M?xlcahs. A good many colored men were also found in bad company, though they operated for the most part In the second ward. Half an hour before the closing of the polls the Stout men believed that they had been outnumbered, so that they were hardly prepared for the pleasant surprise inflicted upon them when the tickets began to be taken out of the box. The count gave Stout 175 and Sanders-Norton 134. It was In this ward that the hardest fight took place and the contest was marked with dls order. There were two or three gen cral fights early in the afternoon and there was one gun play. A colored man by the name of Williams was circulat ing in th2 second and third wards as sisting the Stout challengers. He en gaged in a dispute with A. S. Arthurs, one of the foremost of the lieutenants of Sanders, and there was a passage at arms, when' Policeman Porter Inter fered. He drew his gun and threatened to shoot Williams' entrails out. It was the opinion of the audience that he was most too emotional to be an officer and handle a gun. The second ward, though regarded all the time as a Stout stronghold, began to take on such a Mexican coloring in the afternoon that it was doubtful what the count would show. The Mexican vote was held dow n though to safe lim its by Captain Alexander, the chal lenger for Stout. He discouraged most of those who vere not entitled to vote, as "well as some who were. No Stout voter with a color of right, however slight it might be. was denied admis sion. In the case of a challenge Cap tain Alexander in his excitement, for he is a nervous person, let the ballot fall Into the box, and when he was remon strated with offered In good faith to allow the voter to be sworn. The oppo sition being unable to see how that would' recover the ballot from the box withdrew from the discussion. In this ward the Stout ticket received 101 votes and the Sanders-Norton ticket 67. It was in this ward that Norton devel oped his greatest strength in the city. It is quite possible that the Stout men could have carried the first ward, but they were afraid to withdraw any of their strength from the third and the second, so that they let the con test there go by default. The Sanders ticket here received 128 votes and the Stout ticket 83. The primary in the fourth ward, the stronghold of Sanders, was a formal affair. Though that ward Is perhaps the largest in the city, only 100 votes were cast, of which the Stout ticket re ceived only 12. The following is the list of delegates chosen in all the wards: First W. B. Cleary, F. M. Mognett, George Gallagher, R. A. Warner, E. Sunderland, H. A. Hughes. M. J. Pettid, J. J. "Thompson, Martin Gonzales, J. M. Shott, George F. McFall, Alfred Franklin. Second J. L.'B. Alexander, Harry J. Bennett, A. G. Austin, D. L. Crosby, Vernon L. Clark, W. G. Cook. W. K. James. Ed Barnum, S. P. Hoefer, L. R. Kruger, J. G. Evans, W. J. Clancy. Third John T. Dunlap. C. D. Dorrls. E. W. Spears, William Wilson, Frank Burgess, James McNuIty, Thomas Sweem, Augustine Bernal, H. L. Tul bert. Fourth Joe Bush, A. H. Lawrence, James Henderson. P. G. de la Lama, R. B. Cannon. C. P. Price. Charles Pet erson, Jo&e Morales. Thomas Smith, Joe Martinez, Albert Cobb, Alex. Dav idson. , This gives Stout twenty-one of the forty-five delegates in town. Returns from the country precincts last night Indicated that the whole country bad practically gone for him, and his friends are claiming that he will have more than 100 votes of the 132 vote3 in the county convention. Among the precincts heard from which have gone for Stout are: Mesa, 10 votes; Tempe, 7 for Stout, 2 for Nor- on; Wickenburg, 8 for Stout; Glendale, 2; Alhambra, 4; Johnstone, 1; Orme, 2; Cartwright. 2 for Stout, 1 for Sanders Nortcn; Riverside, 1 for Stout; Peoria, School districts 5 and 21, 1 each for Stout; district 14, 2; Osborn, 3; Gold Coin, 1; Angel Camp, 1; Arlington, 2. Varying reports came from Buckeye. According tf one Norton had carried It, and according to another It had gone for Stout. No word was received from Agua Callente and Gila Bend, but the Stout managers said that things had been fixed there so that they could not lose in either. There are more than a dozen small precincts yet to be heard from. Some of the victors are discussing the granting of amnesty to the candi dates of the Young Men's Democratic club. Some of them do not believe it willjae safe to take any of them in out of the wet. They figure that It would give the Insurgents an opportunity to trade with republicans against Stout and candidates who are not liked by the club. They believe that the best, thing to do with this organization, now- is to crush it. o BEAUMONT FIELD BURNING UP A Fire Which Cannot Be Controlled Is Eagirg. Bcaumcnt, Tex., September 11. The cil field is on fire, and judging by the great volume of Emoke which Is flowing In from Spindletop, there Is a grave fear that a great loss will be sus tained if the field is not entirely de stroyed. The fire started early In the evening In some waste oil along the Texas and Sabine tracks, and burned about sixty feet of trestle. This was gotten under control, and It was be lieved that all danger had passed, but in the meantime the fire had been cem munlcated to the field, and a number of huge settling tanks, containing thousands of barrels of petroleum, have already exploded, and others are re ported as being in the direct line of the fire, which has spread over a wide area. The ground .is saturated with oil, and there is no chance of stopping the progress of the flames -tcnight. The fire is spreading rapidly, and It Is believed the whole fisld will be lgnlt ed before daylight. A telephone message from Gladys, ( station at the oil field, says the whqle of the Keith-Ward tract, embracing several acres and containing a large number of wells, has been burned over and it 13 believed that some well hav caught, though this is not yet posi tively determined, as no one can ap proach to find out. At 1 o'clock the big tanks belonging to the Higings company are burning, Runners have been sent out in that direction for the men who own them or represent the companies. The rtreets are filled with people, and thou sands of them ar now on the way to the field in every sort cf vehicle ar.d afoot. There are 410 producing wells in tho field, some of which are buried under the earth as a safeguard against fire. At 1:30 o'clock this (Friday) morning the telegraph operator at Gladys says he fears he will be compelled to leave his post, and all means, of communi cation will be cut off. Workmen on the hill are standing around unable to do anything, even toward protecting that portion of the field which is no yet on fire. The entire apparatus of the fire department is being loaded on cars to be sent to the field. A tank known as the Higgins has blown oft its top. and oil is running along the-ground and flames are being communicated to the other tanks. 1 o BRITISH VICE CONSUL Has Been Committed to Insane Asylum. a Boston Boston, September 11. The Evening Record says W. H. Stuart, formerly British vice consul here, has been placed in the McLean Insane asylum at Waverly by his family, who for some time has been convinced because of his peculiar financial methods that he has not been responsible for his acts, A number of notes aggregating $100, 000 are held by various people.

St. Louis, Mo., September 11. The principal Items of interest today In con nection with the Investigation that is being carried on by Circuit Attorney Folk Into the alleged boodle combines were the return of former Delegate William Tamblyn from Cleveland In custody of an officer and the sessions of the grand Jury. Before being placed in a cell Tamblyn asked to see Mr. Folk. His intention was to tell all he knew about the doings of the combine in the house of delegates, but he finally decided not to say anything at this time, for the circuit attorney told Tam blyn that if he desired to make any statements about the matters that were' being Investigated he must do so volun tarily without hope of clemency.
