COUNTING THE COST OF PROHIBIIION What it Meant to the Citizens of Phoenix and Maricopa County, From the Taxpayers' Standpoint. MIDNIGHT ASSAULT BY AN ARMtD FORCE B Company N. G. A. Captured an En campment of the Normal Cadets Without Bloodshed. IT M KAN'S a lux to the city of Phoenix of the sum of $3(i.iton now ae cruinc from license fee, water rates and valuations upon personality, also this proportionately from the other in corporated towns In the county. IT M KAN'S a loss to the school fund of the county of the sum of Ilij.liOO. which can only be made good by in creasing the farmers' tares. IT MEAN'S an addition or 3i more store rooms, to the IT present unoccu pied: besides which upwards of half a hundred houses occupied as resi dences, this insures decreased rentals, followed by lower valuations upon all real estate. IT .MEAN'S an addition to the unem ployed of not less than V men whose present earnings average 10l.0ti per month: aggregating annually JlSfi.ooo which is muinly disbursed among the merchants, professional men, electric light, railways, societies, etc.. in this city. While Phoenix withstood the recent financial shrinkage with only a slight inconvenience, will not the withdrawal of upwards or a half million of dollars from her active daily business, precip itate a financial climax Tor which there Is no compensating advantage and no recourse? The total of the present city reve nue is required to meet its current ex penses, it cannot be augmented with out territorial legislative action, re duced taxes follow reduced valuations, which with the elimination above not ed presents a financial condition as deplorable as it is unwarranted and ir redeemable. o EMINENT CHURCHMEN ON PROHIBIIORY LAW Its Effect is to Force Them to Fester in Secret. Bishop Hall of Vermont. "Prohibition drives underground the mischief it seeks to cure, making it more difficult to deal with the evil and imiossible to regulate the trade, as, for instance, in the quality of the liquor sold. The present law leads. I believe While peascful civilians in this val- ley slept on Saturday night they little divumed that two magnificent military aggregations, well uniformed and ful ly armed with Krag-Jorgenson rifles i I were engaged In a powder burning duel across the river four or five miles southeast of Phoenix. It Is the cus- torn of the cadet company of Tempe, under Captain Irish, to hold a three day encampment annually for field maneuvers as well as the novelty and sport of the thipg. It Is a custom also to go out quietly without announce in . their camping place , or camp wherever they please when night ov- ertakes them. sometimes changing j camp occasionally to throw off Its guard any enemy that might be seek I ing to assault them. It Is moreover a ' custom of either the Tempe or a Phoe nix company of militiamen to seek out the camp of this southside army and attack it with true military spirit. This year the cadets were well along in their third night and there had been no disturbance. They began to fear that they did not apiear sufficiently ferocious to attract anybody's atten tion and that they would be allowed to go home without interference. Hut about 1 o'clock Sunday morning a squad of nineteen men under com mand of Second Lieutenant Hill of B i company, attacked the cadets wlth- out warning, practically took posses I sioi. of the camp and made the student soldiers admit that they had been sur I prised and startled. They had wlth ! drawn their ou'er pickets and all but j the guard were sound asleep, having j decided I hat there would be no at i tack. The Phoenix soldiers had cross j ed the river in a wagon at Seventh j street and worked their way up the j other side under the leadership of a scout who hail made a reconnoissance i timing the day. The attack would have been made earlier but the inarch was difficult and the wagon got stuck in the river. When the enemy's camp was sighted, the team was left I and the troops went across a field, ad j vancing almost to the camp guard and I before the cadets awoke to their dan ger they were assailed by a sickening fire. One of the sentinels thought it might be a real enemy and ran into camp very much excited. The cadets craw h d out from under their blankets and began firing at random but before IF YOU NEED A MEDICINE YOU SHOULD HAVE THE BEST.

"The clubs are simply a coterie of young men who call themselves clubs and get together and have their bottles in their closets. 1 am sure these clubs have a very bad effect, in that young men who never drank at all previously have done so in the secrecy ot the club, as they call it. They would not be seen to drink over a bar, but they do it in the clubrooms." Bishop Clark of Rhode Island. In the City of Pills. .

The Story of an Amateur Pou'tryman About the most sensible thing (and 1 might add. also, the most profitable) beginning I ever saw made in the poultry business was by a young clerk who lived in the suburbs of a nearby city. He sustained a severe attack of the "hen fever" and. as is the usual occurrence, became enthused ever the "enormous" profits to be made with poultry. He did not. however, allow his enthusiasm to get the best of his better judgment, and cause him to re sign his clerkship and immediately embark in the loultry business on a more or less extended scale, as has so frequently occurred:: but, instead, he held on to his clerkship, fixed up a good comfortable little house on a back lot. bought a dozen stand-ird bred hens and a rooster at a dollar a head. of a neighboring fancier, and thus mude his start. This was Parly in the spring; dur ing the spring and summer, he fur nished the family with eggs and chickens, and, besides, hatched and raised something like a hundred young chicks. Out of these he retained twenty-five of the , best pullets for breeders, and, of course at the same time enlarging his house room; and so, by the next spring, we find that his business has. from natural causes, tripled itself, and all this time our friend has been steadily and rapidly gaining in practical knowledge of the business. . This natural increase continued for another year or two, and by this time he had his business so firmly estab lished on a paying basis that he was justified in buying a small farm out at the edge of town, and then and there becoming a full-fledged poultry- man, making this his exclusive occu pation. Speaking of profits, he re cently told me that he scarcely man aged to meet expenses the first year. the second year he slightly more than kept even. while subsequent years have not failed to show a nice little' sum on the right side of the ledger. . From "Profitable Chicken Raising,"! by Roscoe B. Samlo in The tiuting . Magazine for April. o Dope Fiend Cured by Hypnotism. Professor Munsterberg takes a fling at Lombroso's theories in the April ' McClure's. and holds organized society! responsible for the criminal trend of those born with "pooriy working" minds. Professor Munsterberg tells of a hospital patient to whom opiates were administered: "He became a morphinist, an out cast, without energy and without hope. For weeks I have been fighting his passion with persistent suggestive treatment; the dose he needs has been reduced to a hundredth part of what It was. and his soul strength and enjoy ment of life have slowly com back, he will be cured soon. But every day, when I put my full energy to the task, I think of the cruelty witn which so ciety has treated him. He was not '. born a "doie fiend.; he did not choose the poison. Organized society inject ed it Into his system a small dose only, but enough to make the craving for it irresistible; and, when this crav ing had grown to ruinous proportions, society was ready to despise and to condemn him. Even at best, it could only make heroic efforts to overcome the gigantic passion which it had rec klessly created. "To me this case of diseased passion Is a symbol of all the crime that fills the countries of the globe.

" Whistler's caustic wit is shown by tiie following anecdote: "Of one who, was held to be- Eng land's most brilliant young artist. 'Yes.' he said thoughtfully, 'he's clever, but there's something common in ev erything he does, so what's the use of it?" Like many great men. he had but lit tle time for any but his own work. "He told me a story demonstrating this most clearly. His Nocturne in filiie and Gold. Valparaiso, was in the Hill Collection in Brighton. -Mr. Hill had two galleries and a v.'ellknown c Election, eventually sold at Christe's.
