The longer a lie has run the greater the satisfaction In nailing it. The Republican is, therefore, filled with satisfaction .this morning. For more than a week the Arizona Oazette and the Phoenix Enterprise have been printing fake Washington dispatches and alluding to them in "fierce" editorials. It was stated by both papers, when they knew very well that it was not true, that work on the Tonto Basin reservoir had been held up because the government would not pay the Hudson Reservoir company the price !t a?ked for the Tonto Baiir dam site; thut the company, represented by Mr. Ely. editor of The Republican, and former Governor Murphy threatened litigation in the event the government ptoceednd with the building of the reservoir, and that in eonteo,uence the work had come to a standstill amd that there was danger of it being perma nently suspended. It was alFo stated in these bogus dis patches that Judge Kibbey and Mr. II, A. Fowler, the representatives of the Water IVevs' association, were hero ically endeavoring to prevent the pay ment of the pries asked for the dam tite and were standing between the ra pacity cf the company and the farm er cf the Salt River valley. These lies u ero r-rinted in . the first place for business and political ireison? and were made the basis of assiults by both the rlazette and the Enterprise upon The Republican. This paper wan not inclined to pay any attention to th lies or the assaults, as it had. suffered nothing from them. On Sunday morning, however, there appeared in the Gazette an unusually Viruleni editorial reiterating - all the falsehoods previously printed. The Re publican accordingly addressed a tele gram to Judge Kibbey, whose name had been used so freely in the Gazette and Enterprise Marconigraphs. recounting the statements which had been mad and asking him to wire a statement of the situation. It was explained that a statement from him was wanted for the purpose of controverting in the most forcible manner the lies which had had a run of a week The following telegram from Judsre Kihbew received yesterday disposes of all the falsehoods in tne order in which they have been rrepenrvd: "Warhington, D. f..

Pond, the well known manager, needs no further com ment: '"It gives me great pleasure to stat-3 that I consider Mr. Minor C. Baldwin the greatest master of the organ now in the profession. J. 1$. Pond." "A marvelously descriptive piece of music, writing was 'A Storm in the Forest,' by Minor C. Baldwin. Seldom is an audience so impressed by instru mental music; many women covered their faces, men leaned forward in their chairs, and all felt more or less the thrill of awe as the terrific storm broke over them." Musical Courier, (New York). "His fame as an organifit and com poser is known throughout the land. Prof. Baldwin has a charm that is inexplicable. From his manipulation of the organ he has been called the 'Saint-Saens of America,'" New York World. Hear him Friday at the First Methodist church. Admiss'on 50 cents. collided with the buggy in which she was riding. She drove in front of him, that is, between him and the street car track, narrowly missing being hit by the tongue of his wagon. It ap peared to her that it was the intention of the old man to cross the track. She passed on and almost immediately heard the crash of the collision. The next instant Scanlan'a horses, freed by the collision dashed past her to the west, and she. turned and saw tne wreck of the wagon. The next witness was Dr. M'Intyre, who had known Scanlan for several years and had treated him in times of illness. He said that he could not hear well and probably couldnot have heard the ringing of the car bell. He thought Scanlan was a native of Ire land and that he was about seventy years of age. According to the great register he was a native of New York and was sixty-eight years old. V. H. Easterwood, the proprietor of a street stanu, ana oiagonauy across Washington street from the point at which the collision occurred, said that he was standing on the corner and saw the approach of the car. He did not notice Scanlan, but he heard the ringing of the bell and noticed that the car slowed down In front of Wake lin's pharmacy as if the mctorman Intended to stop on the other side of the crossing for a passenger. The car started up again and the next thing Mr. Kasterwood heard a crash and saw the wreck cf the wagon. The man who saw more than any body c-ise except the motorman was J. J, Kcholls, a stranger in the city. Just before the car reached the Firt avenue crossing, Mr. Echolls went to the front platform to ask the motor- man a question. The motorman just before reaching the east side of the crossing clanged the bell and turned off the current and applied the brakes. The witness then noticed vehicles in front, but the track being clear again the current was turned on again and the car proceeded. The next instant the witness saw Scanlan'a wagon on the track and the witness stepped back into the car. He saw no one In Scanlan's wagon, it beine a covered vehicle. He said that the car was at no time going at a high speed and in his opinion the motorman had used every possible precaution to prevent an accident. F. D. Witherbee was the one witness who actually saw Scanlan just before he was killed. He said he was ridin? up First avenue on his wheel. Il first noticed the Imminent collisicn between Scanlan and the buggy in which Mr?. Kendrick and Mrs. Merrs'man were riding. He saw Scanlan proceed south ward afterward, heard the clangor of the motorman's bell and hard tho ap plication of the brakes. He saw the car strike the wagon and he, heard a shout which he thought had been rais ed by the old man whom he next saw on the track about ten feet in front of the car. Being sure that th mo torman would not then be able to stor it he turned his head away. He had seen all he wished to see. He did. however, look again and Scanlan was under the car a mangled mass. Mr. Wftherbee did not think the speed of the car was excessive, the rate was probably three and a half or four miles an hour. The la-t witness was David Sanui, the motorman. All the tfstimony up to this time led to the belief1 that the ringing of the bell was for the purpose of warning Scanlan. The motorman said, however, that the reason he ransr the bell, shut oft the current and ao plied the brakes was to warn the oc cupants of a buggy which was ap proaching the track from the south. At that time Scanlan had not come Into view. The buggy crossed in front of him before he had reached the mid dle of the crossing. Bv that time Scanlan, who had come into range, had brought his team to a standstill and the car moved forward. The horses of Scanlan sprang forward hrlnpin the wagon upon the track. Saqui said that it was impossible to bring the car to a stop within' from twentv-five to thirty feet. He said he had been a motorman for more than three vears. This concluded the evidence and the Jury brought in a verdict stating that the accident was unavoidable and could be traced only to the infirmi ties or the old man, who certainly could not have heard the warning bell and seated within the curtain of hi wagon could not have seen the car There had been found in the debris of the wagon a lot of papers tied ud neatly and it was thought that they might throw some light on his hetmit life: that possibly they might o'.s mre idtis anoui nis property tv? was supposed to have in Colorado.

L Mr. Murphy's attention was called to the editorial in the Gazette, wherein an effort was made to hold him responsi We for the acts of certain republicans in Maricopa county, and asked if he eared to make any reply. He said he did -not; that he thougjjt such senseless stuff was harmless. He stated that if he were inclined to be spiteful he might wish to have the editorial repro duced in The Republican giving cred it where it belonged.
