Blair of Mammoth, spent yesterday in Phoenix, leaving on the evening train for home They are on the way back from a visit in Cali fornia and came in via Prescott. They chanced to be in that city on the oc casion of the opening of the new Com mercial club. Speaking of that event Mr. Blair says he was in attendance at tho opening and was most agree ably surprised to find such an up-to-date club in Arizona. It has all the conveniences of a first class club in any large city. including private lodgings for members who are singie men and prefer to make their homes at the ciub. It has a first class culi nary department and everything that one could desire to make life comfort able. The building is a three story structure and would be a credit to any city. Asked regarding the Mammoth mine Mr. Blair said that practically nothing to bing done at present. The management is engaged in -waiting as hard as ft can for the arrival of the Phoenix & Eastern railroad which will cross the company's ground thereby affording the cheapest possible freight rates for the operation of the com pany's enterprises. The Mammoth is one of Pinal's most famous properties and no doubt will be worked on a large scale just as soon as the railroad ar rives. The same condition seems Lo prevail to a large extent all over the Pinal county mining districts Some properties are being worked and the assessment work is kept up on most of the promising ones awaiting the diiy when cheaper freights shall make extensive operations feasible. Inci dentally it is learned that the railroad grade is now within four miles of Kelvin and that the track has been laid to within three miles of Florence.

The Los Angeles Times that came yesterday contains the following dis patch froin Riverside of some local interest: Alexander Karla, t.lias Fred W. Kline, in jail here on suspicion of mur dering Andrew Feterson, made a par tial confession this afterncon. He de nied the murder, but acknowledged having Peterson's; rig, which was stolen from the scone of the murder, and leaving the san.e at Elliott's corral in this city. He acknowledged that he is Alex. Karls, who was convicted at Oukdale, Neb., for cattle stealing, and that "he broke Jail there, coming to California three years ago. Officers are in possession of evidence which, tak en in connection with Karl's admis sions this afternoon, connects him pos itively with the crime. They think it possible that he may have had accom plices, for some time yesterday a sa,tch el was found in the Temescal Canyon, and it contained, among- other things, a pair of shears on which was en graved Kline's name. In view of the fleeing couple reported to have been seen at different points along the road In that direction on the night of the murder, the finding of these articles adds more mystery to the affair. Another fact has come to light, and that is instead of being a native of Texas, he was born at Washington, 111. At the undertaking parlors of Dav is & Son on North Main street, the charred remains of the dead man are viewed by many persons curiously in clined, but the sight is a sickening one The legs and hands are gone and the head has an awful gaping wound. Sunday afternoon at 2 o'clock the fu neral will take place at the home of Mrs. M. P. Grofthold, a sister of the murdered man, at 549 Main street. A BOOM IN TURKEYS. Texas Planters Will Use Them to Fight the Boll Weevil New Orleans. Jan. 3. A boom in turkeys is repcrted from Texas as a result of the boll weevil epidemic, and that state, particularly the boll weevil section, will produce from three to four times as many turkeys as here- j tofore. The shipment from Giddings amcunts to 5. COO turkeys, which have ' not been shipped before,, all raised there being used at home. j The rsising of the turkeys is the di rect outgrowth of the boll weevil, the I farmer holding that the turkey Is a line bird In tho cotton, being able, be cause of his long reach, to get the weevils at the top of the stalk, during the season of greatest activity among the insects. Thus the boll weevil Is kept down and the turkeys fattened at the same time. The extermination of birds in Texas is claimed by some to be largely responsible for the increase in the weevil nuisance. The turkey is the only domestic fowl able to get it the weevil easily HAS VAST HARD COAL BASIN Philadelphia &. Reading Co. Ooens Big Mine in Anthracite Region. Pottsville, Pa., Jan. 3.

Since the close of the Spanish war various proposition have been made to raise the wreck of the Maine from Us bed of mud In the harbor of Havana. Tho In test of these is announced today In a dispatch from New Orleans, whore a company has been formed to secur the wreck for exhibition purposes. An engineer will go to H.uana early next month to complete the arrangements for bringing the shattered hull to iho surface The extraordinary feature of tho dispatch Is the statement that tho Maine will be used for exhibition pur poses at the next Madri Gras festiv:il xoosition Tt is possible to raise tl- hulk without a very great expenditure of time and Jiioney, but we doubt if an. process short of taking it apart, pl.tti. bv plate, would enable the New Or leans company to get it up the Missis sippi as far as St. Louis. We are told that the ship will be lightened to ji over the shoals, but the lowest attain able, draft of an iron vessel with tlm Maine's displacement would scarcely assure successful navigation throuch the shallow windings of the Mississippi from the gulf to the ste of the world's fair. It is not seetnly that the torn'. of so muny brave seamen should be. used tor sideshevv purposes, but an plan thut removes the Maine from its present position and restores it to home waters need not be too critically discussed. Among our naval relics thi hull of the ship whose destruction pre cipitated tho war of 1S0S should havo a conspicuous place, and there is ix doubt that tho navjv department will eventually take charge of the Maim, provided the efforts of the wrecking company realize expectations. Tim claim of this ship upon the nation' rare is only second to that of th Constitution and the Hartford. Brooklyn Eajrlw. AMERICAN WOMEN'S INFLUENCE. The University of Munich, which has at last opened Its doors to women, extends Its privileges to Americans. This is only the logic of events. It w-rs the incessant Dlea of women from this country which Anally induced th university authorities to arr.nlt women It Is not unnatural that large numbers of American women should seek hieher education abroad. The absorbing de votion ot university men In athletics finds ample gratification at home, in that resDoct at least no foreign institu tion offers superior advantages. Muscle is muscle the world over. It Is true that neglect of tendons and muscles is noted by alien experts as a defect in American training, but. even with this remedied .athletics will ha an educational Interest from which women will remain burred. Nature's limits human ingenuity cannot cast down. There are increasing signs that in fine art. which Is not so far removed from authentic atheletlcs. since both deal fundamentally with correct form, especially correct human Jorm, women In university life are finding a great potent attraction. It Is in only German university cities that this attraction predominates. Women are steadily ad vancing in technique and persistence. While no artist of first rank was anything but an artist as a rule, and although eminent critics condemn lit erary culture as a debilitater cr crea tive force in the plastle arts, fine art has become a recognized department of university life. In this department no American and no British university af fords th-r piivilegbs offered by a city like Munich, whose convenient situa tion, rich museums, prcficiency in th sister art of music and genial social life combine to produce an environ ment peculiarly agreeable to Ameri can women. ,, It will not be surprising that many American women shall seek opportuni ties so exceptional, so long denied to women and at last granted at the cap ital of Bavaria, where thtir numbers under private tutoring of the univer sity professors has at last transferred their vivacity and grace to the regular lecture halls.

T'-5- British public has !;en freelra Its mind on the subject of reading In bed. pnd tho dances s and benefits if putting oneself to sleep over a honk. The c.l 1-fashioned physicians talkp,'! eolcmnlv ever the? danger of sotfinir the hd on fire. Doubtless, being British snd old-fashioru-d. thev had nev" heard of movable electric lights. One uspects. however, that if rvecple tviut "Re sedatives the physicians would !ik to write the prescriptions. The oculist drew an alarming picture of the evils of impaired eyesight. One .nd all thev assumed that the reader invariably occupied a recumbent posi tion. Apparently they knew notliinir of the pleasure cf propping up one's liack and head with pillows. Btsides. f reading In bed really does Injure th veslght. why are the oculists obleot Ing s- strenuously to a habit which would nut manv a. dollar i.-to theii pock ts? The apothecaries naturally objected to the habit. If novels become th fashionable sedative it keeps just much money out of tht-ir cash riraw-vrs- These objections, though, more cr lees disguised as to motive, are all founded on practical grounds. But now conies the author who protests ou sen timental grounds. Practically, he would profit much if his book led the list of the "six b.st sedative novels." But tho novelist seems to think that the man who goes to sleep over a novel is offering a deadly insult to the whole guild of authors and tb lit.ar:iture it self. Thus the controversy rages, with nothing to Fay a grod word for the habit excect those who have it. In the meantime the American will probably co his own way regardless. But it is cafe to say that if Young America sets cnuaht at reading in bed he will cet it Ruar.Uing and deserve . it Chicaso Tr.ter-Ocer.n Might Be More Timely. Howes Don't like this cold weather, eh?
