For an act ef kindness performed three years ago Miss Anna Marion Yonkers, bookkeeer at a laundry, has suddenly become rich. A draft for J4'),(HK came to her on Saturday from Charles W. Johnston of Chicago, a man the girl had seen only once in her life when she was kind tthim, when she supposed he was a poor man. In July, i:00, while on a trip to Sa vanna, III., to visit friends, m ss YonK. ers boarded a train at LaCrosse. When the train reached Stoddard, Wis., sh noticed an elderly man, dressed plainly, mount the steps of the car. When he entered the door of the coach she saw that he carried, in addition to his grtp, a cine, and a glance at him told her that h" was ill. He appeared for a moment as though he was about to fa int. Miss Yonkers, who was only a few feet distant, ran to his side and ottered assistance. Hie. helped him to the double seat where she had been sitting and placed his grip at his side, then she went to the oilier end of the car and brought a glass of water. After a tine the man seemed to get stronger ami they talked. He took her name and address and two or three letters passeel between them. Shortly before the receipt of the gift Miss Vonkers received a postal card from him which conveyed the news that she might expect a surprise. She thought little of it. although wondering what il meant. When she received the drart she could hardly realize that it was hers. AGFA TRIETA.

A FIGHTING GHANGE FOR STATEHOOD Governor Murphy Hopeful but not Sanguine ' In an Interview he Describes the Sit uation of the Omnibus Bill and Alio Pays His Eepec!s to Senator Beve ridge. Ex-Governor Murphy returned Phoenix from Washington yesterday morning. When asked about the out .00k for statehood ho said: "There is a fighting chance only, with .he ocids very much against us. Whib ihe friends of the omnibus bill have a ;iear majority 0 at least five the didl culty lies in forcing a vote. Senator Quay is ac tive, earnest and resourceful 'out the shrewd managers of the opposi tion control the appropriation bills and jther privileged legislation and are in position to obstruct delay and prevent 1 vote which Is their declared policy, t is also stated on good authority that he president desires the? defeat of the mriibus bill and is exerting his in iuence e gainst it. It goes without -aying that if he is insistent, the bill cannot be pasted. There may be a eattion in our favor but to me the oul--ok is not very encouraging. We have tained some votes and lost others and lisaffcc ticn among the deinncrpt. is kargeJ, notably. Senatprs H:ic n, Vest ind Cockreil. The fate of the meas ire wholly depends upon securing a vote. What about the reports of the se ctorial commitlee which lately visitc I the territories ? "They are the subject of much ad verse critic-Ism even among the enem ies of statehood. Many of the state ments they contain ere so manifestly unjust and so easily disprove th.-.t they are only injurious in influencing the uninformed regarding investments end territorial credit. Influential men ire industriously contradicting these evil reports and strong speeches will "e made by senators wh- wi'l vot against statehood but who d'-pinre th? -landerous statements which have been circulated against our development and res ourc cs." ' How lo?s Senator RevcrM-re Ftand 'n Warhington?' "He does net stan,i at an t.ven imong our enrmbs. He i largely a subject of ridicule and is simply beinrr used as a tool and ejulte effectively be cause of his position a3 chairman of the committee on 1 rritories." I'pon what in your judgment Is the eal reason for opposing admission based ? "On ignorance sectionalism ind sel fishness, particularly the latter. Th" 'alk about lack of pr ple. : teiacy, ab sence of resources, immorality, wrong noli tics, etc.. Is simply made to hide the true motiven of the most powerful op ponents of statehcol. A c-'t-rle of bout n clo;:en long service senators, whom I do tint care t mention now, dominate the senate and they wish to perpetuate thc-ir power, and they do iot propose-, if they can prevent it, to rave what they are pleaded to call he "equilibrium" of the senate dls utbel. There you have the whole tory. There 3 neither statesmanship. patriotism, good polities, nor any w-rthy reason for their conduct but in heir sefishness and assumption of superiority is foi.nd why they are op posing us and t is exceedingly un fortunate that ihey have been able to dee-rive the p esident." Are any of our home people opposing the bill? "One can hear all sorts of rumors in Washington on that score but I hesi tate to believe that any one here has been guilty of such treachery to the best interests of the territory. I could say a great deal of the work that is being done for, and against the omni bus bill and relate many details and much gossip which would not benefit anybody. Sullioe it to say that in my judgment we will be defeated but our riemies will know they have had a fight." How about Irrigation and the :on druotion of the Tonto Rasin reservoir? "Nothing will be given out at. the Department of the Interior on that sub ject until the secretary has received, analyzed and construed the reports of the members of the geological survey, who are investigating the various irri gation projects throughout the western country. When these reports are re ceived the secretary will take action within the limitations of the irrigation law or recommend its amendment as the case may be. In the mvantlme it behooves our people to work earnest ly and In harmony to secure the larg ?st benefits possible from the govern ment's expenditure of the irrigation fund. All our friends in Washington ire working hard and conscientiously "or statehood. 'Mark Smith Is leaving no stone unturned, although he doc-3 not feel over enc-ouratred." How about the report th it you were ill in Washington? "I was very much under the weather ami confined to my room for four days. Nothing serious, however, and I man aged to strike a lic k or two for Arizona every dny just the same." Do you expect to return to Washing ton upon the reassembling of congress? "I think not. although I am Informed '.hat Feveral Influrntlxl Arizo:.iafcs in--ludlng my brother will be on tJie ground poon after congress meets if not "or a protracted stay for at l?ast time 'nrugh to mak" some forceful rtate rcnls in contradiction of the slandeis vhich have been circulated against us.

CHINA HOPING TO WEAKEN OUT POWERS Relying Upon Support by the United States. Pekin, December 31.

The policy of the United States pre sents an objection in the the way of delivering a joint note to China on the matter and the present diffic ulty is gen erally attributed to the encouragement given China by the American govern ment's endorsement of their argu ments. The Chinese are content to await developments believing that the powers will find it difficult to agree on a course of action that the present deadlock will be prolonged Indefinitely. A SECOND FIRE.
