In the morning the case of Guadalupe Martinez came up. he be ing charged with obtaining money un der false pretenses from Jcrn Jung-r-nian. It seems that Mr. Martinez was ibout to be married and in order that he might have the necessary linancial assistance Mr. Jur.german paid him the money due him and advanced him $14. Mr. Martinez was married snj in the joy of the occasion apparently forgot all about the loan, which he had prom ised to come back and work out. After a time his employer, becoming worried, swore out a warrant for his arrest and he was brought back to Tempe. After all the evidence was in the jus J ice de cided that there was no false pretense and accordingly turned Guadalupe loos? while the costs of the affair were charged up to Mr. Jungerman.

CRUSHES THE LIF r The most loathsome and repulsivi living things is the serpent, and the most degrading of all human diseases is Contagious Blood Poison. The serpent sinks its fangs into the flesh and almost instantly the poison passes through the entire body. Contagious Blood Poison, beginning with a little ulcer, sooa contaminates every drop of blood and spreads throughout the whole system. Painful swellings appear in the groins, a red rash and copper colored splotches break out on the body, the mouth and throat become ulcerated, and the hair and eye brows fall out ; but these symptoms are mild compared to the wretchedness and suffering that come in the latter stages of the disease when it attacks the bones and more vital parts of the body. It is then that Contagious Blood Poison is seen in all its hideous ness. The deep eating abscesses and sickening ulcers and tumors show the whole system is corrupted and poisoned, and unless relief comes soon this serpent disease tightens its coils and crushes out the life. The only antidote for the awful virus is S. S. S- It is nature's romody, com dry up the sores and drive in the disease, but do not cure permanently.

The recently published annual of the Arizona Hani 1st convention shows that the Haptists of the territory have made notworthy progress during thi past year. I-ast year there were eight Baptist churches in Arizona, this year there are fourteen; the number of members has increased from .r..",S to C.'S; number of Sunday schools from seven to eleven: number of scholars from r.".3 to 753: amount raised for expenses and benev olence from1 $ri..ri9:l to $T.G".i;. The annual includes besides the min utes of.the annual convention, reports of the women's societies- and the Young People's Baptist union, synopses of the letters from the churches, a history of the Tempe church and the report of the board of managers, this repot t be ing presented by the efficient general missionary. Itev. George H. Brewer. The abstract of the I'hoenix church let ter reads as lollcws: "Our church edifice was destroyed by fire September 2r,, V.-OJ, yet we have been greatly blessed by cur hei'.venly Father. YVe owe much to the untiring, faithful work of our pastor. Dr. Ilal sey, and our church treasurer, L. AY. Coggins. We are holding servicer, in O'Neill hall, kindly opened to us by Eugene Brady O'Neill, Esq. Our Sun day school. Deacon B. F. McFall super intendent, and all departments of church work are in a healthy and nour ishing condition. We were greatly blessed by the visit and aid of Evange list George Kobert Cairns. We mourn the loss of three faithful members. Mrs. J. F. Elwell. Mr. Abram Taylor and Mrs. Clyde Miner." The rerort .f the board of managers states th-t twelve missionaries have been employed by the convention. Words of apprt-t ia.tion ate given the noble, generous work of Chaplain Win field Scott and P.v. and Mis. J. A. El liott, and of the faithful work of new J. L. Limes, representing the Ameri can Baptist Publication society. At Douglas, the Copper Queen com pany has donated to the Home Mission society four lots valued at $3.0uo. A new chureh building has been erected at Yuma. We quote from the report: "Arizona is passing through a tran stion period. In former years the im pression went abroad, founded largely upon false rumor and misinformation, that Arlzonx was the home of the out law and bandit. It has tak:-n years 01" persistent effort to overcome this impression. Arizona is made up in large part of Intelligent, law-abiding people, progressive in spitit ani ever ready to welcome the founding of churches and schools in their midst. The industrial progress in Arizona at the present time is without a parallel in all the history of the southwest.

A few years at he present rate of progress will ' place Arizona among the first of those states noted for their wealth i'lid productiveness. No state In the union was ever better fit tort for statehood than is Arizona to day. Christian sentiment in Arizona is almost wholly on the side of statehood and self-government. It is devoutly hied that Congress will at Its next session pass a law permitting Arizona to place its star upon our national em blem. 9 "Arizona Baptists give more than $1 per member for the work of their con vention.

After sneaking of the fire and the an- i tii ipated) new building at Phoenix, the report continues: "This new building will be a splendid monument to the consecrate J energies of Dr. Ilalsey and his nchle chureh. It is a creditable fact that mt with land ing the heavy losses and great financial burdens of the Phoenix church, all cur rent expenses have been provided for, e.ver $7,000 has been raised in cash and subscriptions for n new edifice, and the benevolences of the church during the year have not been alloweil U suf fer. Remember the Capitol Mills pays the highest price for barley and wheat. When you think of your summer va cation think of Coronado Tent City. Nature was more generous to that resort than the other places. And now that the genius of man. and money without stint have worked out the problem. Tent City leaves little to be desired. That is why the thousands are headed that way and by the way. t'oronado can handle its thousunds with comfort for all. And don't forget to have your ticket read right to the grounds. STRICKEN WITH PARALYSIS Wealthy Phoenix Man Probably Fat ally III in San Bernardino. T. W. ililler, a wealthy resident of Phoenix. Ariz., was taken to the coun ty hospital in San Ketnardino, Cali fornia, Friday afternoon in a criti cal condition from paralysis, having been stricken suddenly while sitting in the park. The San LVrnardino Times-Index says: He was found by several citizens and the case reported to the police, who had him removed to the hospital, where Lr. Mejvr, the superintendent, pronounced his condition as e:l.kal. In order to ascertain his identity his clothing was searched for letters, ami numerous bank drafts for VoO ami 1100 were found, some of them issued to the Farmers" and Merchants' bank of Ijs Angeles. He also had a bank book showing a credit at the National bank of Arizona amounting to over $5,000. He wits completely paralyzed on his left side, and has lost the power of Sj-tch, and the sense of letters, for when given a pencil to write the ad dress of those whom he wished noti fied he feebly attempted to write, and failed, those about him realizing that hi? had lost the power of writing. It is not known when he arrived here, though from a diary he has been keep ing it is evident he has been touring the state. He has a brother, CI. U. Miller, residing at Anaheim, in Orange county. Though Mr. Millkr does not seem to have a wide acquaintance in this city, there are some who know him and the statements above are in the main cor rect. Inquiry was made yesterday of 3. Oberfelder of the National bank of Arizona, and he said that Mr. Millj had. an account with that institution, though he was not prepared to say whether or not the balance quoted was correct. He said though that Mr. Mil ler was well to do and he believed had still larger bank deposits in Prt-scott,. and that he -had been extensively en gaged in the rtock business in tln northern part of the territory. He owns a small residence property in the w.uthern part of Phoenix somewhere and has been more or less interested in this city fcr the last three years. Mr. Oberfelder received a letter yes terday morning from Hight & Hight, a legal firm in San Ut-rnardino, making inquiry respecting Mr. Miller's rela tlvts. He replied that so far a.s he knew the only relative of Mr. Miller was G. 15. Miller, who he believes Is a nephew and whose address when given him by T. W. Miller some months ago was Hufina Park, Cat. T. W. Miller, in Mr. Obtrfelder's opinion, is about sixty years old. Transcript of Records.

There was a large audience present and the whole performance went with a dash tiiut was quite up to the Curtiss stan dard. The cast proved by their effici ency that while being clever in drama, they are equally clever in comedy. Ev ery moment was a live one, anil the en tire two hours was heartily enjoyed by nil. In fact, it would be hard to crowd a greater number of 'laughs in the time consumed by last night's performance. Mr. Wilfred Lucas and Aliss Louise Perine opened the evening's mirth with a sketch entitled "A Pair of Lunatics." This kept the audience in an uproar of laughter. The double socially intro duced by them was heartily encored. This was followed by a pleasing turn by little Evelyn Cummings. immedi ately following came the real tickler of the evening, the three-act comedy. "Snowball." which proved to be one of the brightest and gayest of plays. It was well cast, each part being carefully Interpreted. William Lucas led the titld In the race for applause, with Louise Perine and Joe Thompson close seconds. The other parts were in capa ble hands, and the entire production gave evidence of careful rehearsal. The Keltons came in with their share of the fun with an entirely new sketch. They worked hard to please and suc ceeded to the utmost. Little Gladys appeared as a diminutive Irishman and made the hit of the night by her clever makeup and artistic dancing. The same bill tonight with dancing after the show. THE NAVY LEAGUE The Organization oT a New Patriotic Society. Still another patriotic society has ap peared within the I'nion this time one that designs the fostering of a public rpirit favorable to the maintenance of an American navy of ample strength to protect our coasts against all comers. Concerning this new movement, the Army and Navy Journal says: With the incorjKjration of the United States Navy League at Albany. N. Y., on Dec. 27. lt)02. -there was instituted what will be. if it succeeds, one of the most important educational movements ever undertaken in this country. The general purpose of this undertaking Is to interest the ijople at large in the urgent work of building up our navy. It is proposed through the organization or the Navy League to array the senti ment of the nation In support of a broad-guage policy of naval expansion. The gentlemen who have taken the Initiative in this project are citizens of high standing and wide experience, whose single object is to arouse the people to a sympathetic understanding of the growing needs' of tne naval es tablishment. The incorporators of the league are Alessrs. Jacob W. Aliller, Jarvls Edson. Washington Irving, Her bert L. Satterlee and Jennings S. Cox, and the directors include the gentle men named above, together with Ben jamin Tracy. Allen S. Apgar, William Lutler Duncan, Jr., Charles II. Loring, Henry Eckfcrd lihoades, G. H. Satter lee, Itobert S. Sloan, J. Frederick Tarns. Aaron Vanderbilt, John Van de Poel and T. C. Wood. From this board of directors several committees have been chosen for the purpose of devising the methods and marking out the lines along which the work of the league is to be conducted. The scope of the league is as broad as the continent. Every reputable man, woman and child in the country is eli gible to membership. There is no poli tics, no sectionalism, no selfish personal interest to serve in the undertaking. The one object is to help the United States navy, and to that end I propose to appeal to the patriotism of the American people and then have the people appeal in their own way to con gress for such means of supplying the navy's needs. It is hoped through agencies, yet to be devised, to eventu ally acquaint every household and ev ery boy in the country with the work which the league wants to accomplish. The plan considers ihe establishment of branches of the league In every city and town where there is a desire to co operate in the enterprise, and through these branches all available means will le employed to arouse and maintain an Intelligent popular interest in the navy. The national peace and honor must henceforth depend upon the navy. The navy depends upon congress and con gress depends upon , the people. The Navy League therefore proposes to educate the people in naval affairs and to enlist their support in behalf of a policy which shall Insure more ships, more officers and men with better training for both, and a- great naval reserve composed of hardy, patriotic ycung men who can be Instantly called to the nation's defense In time of need. The project thus briefly outlined Is a large one, but not larger than the need it is meant to upply. Can It be suc cessfully executed? For reply we need only to refer to the work of the Ger man Navy League which, since it was organized in April, 1S98, has acquired a membership of more than 700,000, wlthJ branches in every town and hamlet in the empire. The result of the educa tional work carried on through these agencies is that the Genman people who, r.ix years ago, never dreamed of a great sea iower for the empire are toilay as one man in support of a vig orous policy of naval expansion. In re mote Inland communities where war ships were unheard of things a few years ago the people now read with pride and growing intelligence the story of Germany's splendid squadrons. The German boy reads the official bul letin of the German Navy League; his hat bears a ribbon inscribed with the league's insignia; his mother and sis ters wear ear-rings and other trinkets similarly adorned and all these arti cles are sources of Income to the cen tral fund, which means tTie addition of new and mighty battleships to the German fleets. During the year 1901 the German Navy League gained 3f0, C00 new members, many of them re cruited in the United States. It dis tributed millions of books and phamph lets, placed colored pictures of German cruisers In more than 20.000 schools, provided thousands of free lectures, or ganized 3.000 conferences and placed mutoscopic views in 5.000 railway sta tions, all with the single purpose of en listing popular Interest in the navy. England has a navy league older than Germany's. France has one. So has Italy, and Spain also, which is proving a tremendous force for the rehabilita tion of her naval establishment. Wher ever these leagues have been organized they have enormously strengthened the naval policy of the government, and it is hardly too much to say that the splen did squadrons of Germany, which may scrne day force a practical test of the naval defenses of the United States, owe their existence to the German Navy League, which, by crystallizing German sentiment In favor of the em peror's KJlicy. has given the empire a sea power which ranks among the fore most. What the German Navy league has clone the United States Navy League can do. The elements of success are all at hand, and the only thing needed is to assemble them with skill and Judg ment. That can be done by the process of education directed along lines which shall enlist the Interest of American boys In tlie achievements, the structure and needs of the navy. o SUPREME COUIiT OPINION. Delivered! Ex Cathedra on the Lynch ing of Negroes. Milwaukee, Wis. July 13. "Every man who participates In the lynching c r the burning of a negro is a murder er, pure and simple." This statement was made by Asso ciate Justice David G. Brewer, of the United States supreme court, who is In the city on private business. "The piincipal participants in the crime can be held by any court In the land for murder in the same degree as if the crime were committed by an individual. 'There is going to be a reaction against the atrocious crimes with which the paie-.s have been filled. I expect th1t it will come food. I can not say what form it will take, but there will be an uprising of ipular feeling against lynching which will re sult in legislation or a remedy of Mime other form." ('HUMAN FLOODS. Great Destruction of Property Along the Oder. H. rlin. July 13. The highest floods known in the region for many years are retorted from Silesia. Nearly the whole town of Troppau was under water. The crops of the entire dfstrlct were destroyed and traffic at several points is interrupted owing to the de struction of bridges and embankments. In the Sudeten valley all the villages were flooded so rapidly that thirty of the inhabitants were drowned. Fifty houses were destroyed. Even the town of Hreslau Is reported to be in danger and the firemen have been called out to repair the dykes protect ing the city from the overflowing river Oder.

No Indication of the Ratifying of the Panama Treaty. Washington, D. C, July 13. United States Alinister Reaupre cabled the stat.e department today from Bogota that the Panama car.al treaty Is drag ging along before the Colombian con gress. He does not indicate its chance of ratification. If troubled with this distressing ailment, watch for the first indication of an attack; as soon as you feel it coming on take three of Chamberlain's Stom ach and Liver Tablets and the attack may be warded off. Mr. Geo. E. Wright, of New London, New York, ay: "For several years taj wife was troubled with what physicians called sick headache of a very 6vere character. She doctored with several eminent physicians and at a preat expense, only to grow worse until she was unable to do any kind of work. About a year ago she began taking Chamberlain's Stomach .ncl Liver Tablets and today weighs more tlian she ever did before and is real well." He has fcince recommended these Tablets to several of his neighbors, who are enthusiastic in their praise of the remedy. Sold by druggists at 25c. per box.

'There were rather -urgent- bids to cover. The result was a strong rally, which wiped out practically all of the day's earlier losses and estab lished net gains running to a point for some of the leading active stocks. STOCKS.

A hard-luck story was published some time ago about a man who had failed to connect with two or three offices, for which he had beeen. named. It seems the man was appointed to an office during the first Cleveland ad ministration, and continued in office for over twelve years, when some other man got his place. Since then the fellow- has been trying for a place, but jusf about the time he was to connect w ith a governmental salary, something would happen to prevent the consum mation. This was called "hard luck." Perhaps it is hard luck that a man who has held! office twelve years cannot continue to live on government pap. It may be hard for him to relinquish the salary of a generous government, but really there are many millions of people who have never known the lux ury of a government salary. It is not well to waste too much sympathy on the man. who Is not continued in office, after he has had a dozen years in a. good, paying place. Washington Post.
