THE ARIZONA REPUBLICAN FRIDAY MORNINO, - MAY 29,-1908.
PLEASING RESPONSE TO CALL f OR Work On the Y. M. C. A. Building Will Begin Next Week. The general secretary of the T. M. C. A. reports a gratifying resporme to the call for payments to the building fund. During the last three days 29 individuals have paid in $823. Five of these paid up their pledges in full, a portion of them beng piaid In advance. Three of those paying in ' full were women. Several of the larger (subscribers have indicated to Secretary Hayes that they Mill make payments next week. This will.be especially fortu nate as work on the foundation will begin next week and the building committee will, be able to push the work rapidly if the subscribers con tinue to meet the payments now due. There seems to be some misunder standing on the part of a few as to when the third payment is due. The secretary states that the payments become due just as they are indicated on the pldges signed last year. No payments have ever been deferred but collections were not pushed until re cently because building operations were delayed. Now that work begins the first three payments on the pledges are being called in. o NO LOSS OF LIFE. But Great Destruction of Property By An Oklahoma Cyclone. Guthrie, Mai' 28.

UNION BANK'S v SUIT BEGUN To Recover on McDowell's $20,000 Bond The Former Cashier Him-1 self Put On the Stand. : The case of W. F. Nichols, president of the Union Bank and Trust company against the Title Guaranty and Surety company of Scranton. Pa., was begun fn district court yeserday morning. This is an action to recover $20,000 the amount of the bond of J. L. McDowell the defaulting cashier of the bank svhose embezzlements it is alleged ag gregate $21,882.15. - The plaintiff was represented by Armstrong and Lewis and the surety company by Judge Jamison and Judge C. F. Ainsworth. - When the case was called Judge Jamison asked for a continuance on the ground that he was physically weary. He said that he had just re turned from Prescott where he had been engaged in a hard fought case to which he had so devoted himself that after it was over he found him self short seven pounds in weight. A lawyer sitting by when this statement was made asked: "Did Ainsworth get it?" In the Prescott case the attor torneys who are together now for the defense were on opposite sides. Judge Jamison got the judgment, whoever took on weight. ' The motion for a continuance was flenied and the work of securing a Jury was begun. That occupied all the forenoon and the afternoon was spent by the plaintiff in getting tha case connected together, over the mos strenuous objections of the defense. Kothlng was allowed to go in without objection. There were first introduced a lot of letters which had passed be tween the plaintiff and the general agent for the west for the surety com pany. This correspondence extended from the beginning until the final notification by the bank of.McDowell's shortage. The first letter on this sub ject referred to a telegram sent about September 11 of last year when the bank people believed for the first time that something was seriously wrong. The letter stated that the amount of the shortage if any, was not then known. Efforts had been made to communicate with McDowell who was then on the coast but he could not be located. The surety company was in formed by , this letter of all that the bank knew of the situation at that time. The reply to this letter from the general agent stated that he hoped for the good of his company, for the good of McDowell and for the good of the bank that it would turn out that nothing was wrong. After some other letters, in Decem ber, the bank had learned how it stood'1 with relation to McDowell and sent an affidavit of loss a copy of which was produced in court. The Items of loss had been collected to gether by J. George Hilzinger who spent a couple of weeks in going over the affairs of McDowell. The evidence of Mr. Hilzinger was afterward "per petuated" but that was after all not necessary, for he Is now here in per son as a witness. The affidavit shows that the short age occurred in the accounts of the bank with its various correspndents. The greatest discrepancy was one of more than $11,000 in an account with the First National Bank of New York. There were other much smaller dis crepancies in other accounts with this bank. There was one difference of more than $6000. with the First National Bank of Los Angeles and still other Hems of smaller difference with this bank. Something like $1900 had been realized by McDowell in the dealings of the bank with the Anglo-California Bank of San Francisco. A difference of some hundreds of dollars in the ac count of the Consolidated National Bank of Tucson helped swell the grand total. There were some dis crepancies of minor amount in pass books. Late in the day, McDowell who since' his sentence of four years at Yuma has been held here pending this trial was put on the stand. He had little of the appearance of a convict. He was much more like an alert business man. His answers were prompt and so far as the examination had sone were Illuminating. He said that he entered the service of the bank in No vember 1904 and severed his relation with it in August of last year. He identified several of the books, among them the ledgers which were ruled out on the ground that they were not books of original entry. Near the close of his examination for the day some forty statements issued by the National Bank of New York In its ac count with the Union Bank and Trust company were presented. As the examination neared its close the attorneys for the defense were ap proaching those statements whose showing must have differed widely from the account as it appeared in the books of the plaintiff. The trial was preceded by the usual opening statements. Mr. Armstrong described the swindling as an espec ially smooth piece of work, which no reasonable exercise of diligence Would have detected. This statement Indi cated that the plaintiff was laying the ground work for a refutation of any charge of contributory negligence that the defense migtit put forward. 25c Turkish Towds Today for V2z 50 DOZEN OF HEAVY UNBLEACHED TURKISH TOWELS Soft and "fluffy, size 18x45, large enough for bath purposes, guaranteed 25c values at the special price of, each 17c I2Jc Dress Ginghams Today for 9c A LARGE TABLE FULL OF FANCY DRESS GINGHAMS About 200 pieces in Checks, Plaids and stripes, plenty of pink, blue and brown com bination effects, every piece warranted strictly fast color, the kinds others sell at 12'c special today at, yard 9c Warner's 50c Brassieres Today for 39c WOMEN'S CAMBRIC BRASSIERES A boon for stout women, the kind to keep the bust in place. very desirable for wear during the hot season especially priced today for. 39c Cadet Hosiery THAT CADET STOCKINGS ARE BETTER IS ADMITTED BY THOSE WHO HAVE TRIED THEM.

Kansas City, May 28. Church gov ernment, temperance, marriage and divorce were important subjects be fore the general assembly of the Presbyterian church today. By far the most important action of the ses sion was the adoption of a resolution making it Impossible -for any paid agent or member of a church board, or any permanent officer of the gen eral assembly, except the moderator, to serve on the executive committee, the ruling body of the administrative department of the church. The crea tion of the executive committee was embodied in the administrative body by the assembly and is a direct re sult of the ever occurring cry that men in the church were acquiring too much power. From this time forth new men will be in charge of the government of the church. While the speeches made before the assembly indicated that a half dozen men were in the so-called church "ring," it was an open secret that Dr, Wm. Henry Roberts of Philadelphia, the retiring moderator, was the one man against whom the protests were aimed. Commissioners talking about Dr. Roberts said they loved him but that he was so effi cient in the affairs -of the church that his very ability gave him more power than one man Should have. The church affirmed its position that divorce should be granted only upon biblical grounds. HEARST GAINING IN mi RECOUNT Yesterday Added Forty One Votes to His Total. New York, May 28. When today's ressicn of the McCIeHan-Hearst re count trial was concluded a total of 41 votes lad been added to Hearsts vote in the mayoralty election. The ! contents of six boxes were overhauled ' in the presence of the court and several t'lscrep'uicies in the official count were j brought to light. In one case, while j the tally sheet and official canvass j figures were identical the count dis- : cinsed 22 more votes for Hearst than had leen returned. The net result of th(j count for two days has been to give the contestant . 68 more votes than he was credited j with receiving, eight boxes adding this j to Hear-t's total. I MISSOURI FLOOD A Considerable Area of the Northwest ern fan unaer water. i hawk! One more the hawk flew up ward and around, and made another effort to outflank the enemy. These tactics on the hawk's part were kept up for some time, while the heron squatted down and met the at tacks with its beak always turned to ward the enemy. It seemed a mystery to me why the hawk did nt kill the heron without so much parleying. Had I been better instructed in the nature of the heron's beak, and its ability to transfix an enemy with it. I would not have thought so strange of the hawk's maneuvers. It had eveidently been hurt in such an encounter before, and it endeavored to worry the heron so that it could be caught off its guard. Put after ten minutes of fighting it looked as if the hawk would be the first ore out with the bloodless con flict. It grew fiercer and more savage In its attacks, and finally it determin ed to make the attack in earnest. Ris ing to a considerable height as if in tending to fly away, it suddenly drop ped as if shot from a cannon, hoping to take the heron off its gu;ml by the unexpected and swift descent. But the heron was once more prepared for the conflict, and the terrible beak was pointed upward to receive the descend ing bird. The hawk realized, its dan- ' ger at tbe last moment, and tried to i check its headway, but its momentum j was too great, and it plunged down ! ward but a little to one side until it struck the spear-like beak ready to re ceive it. Fortunately for hawk and ! heron the beak merely grazed the side of the hawk's body, ripping out a hand ful of feathers, and inflicting a slight flesh wound. The hawk then tumbled : with a splash into the water, and be fore it could gain its equilibrium again the heron had flown away. The hawk showed no particular desire to pursue its prey, and flapped heavily to a near by tree and sat there for ' an hour thinking the matter over. George Eth , eibert Walsh, in The Outing Magazine.

Hitchcock, cam paign managers for Secretary Taft, spent almost an hour today with Pres ident Roosevelt in going over some of the details of the Taft program at the Chicago convention. It is understood that one of the principal matters discussed was that of selecting a man to nominate the secretary. No decision was reached. Several names were under considera tion, including Senator Doiliver, of Iowa, and Representative Burton of Ohio. : o ; Suppose we sut a half-hitch on our dispositions. St. Joseph, Mo., Mai- 2S. Reports ' from Marysville, Oregon, Tarkio and other northwestern Missouri towns are to the effect that thousands of acres of lowlands have been flooded. Most of the land had been planted to corn and the damage is heavy. In Noda-. way county, ten inches of rain fell within the last few; days. The Missouri river is rising here, and the government dykes near El wood, under construction, are threat ened. In south St. Joseph, 100 houses are flooded. o A Strange Bird Duel. There is apparently nothing in all birdland that is weaker and more help less against a bird of prey than the common heron. With its long sharp bill it can punish worms and fish, and even administer sound punish ment to animals or beasts that come within the range of the beak. Rut the bird is so clumsy and its beak Is so long that it seems as if almost any kind of a savage bird of prey could pounce down upon it and seize it by the neck or head. Nevertheless, the heron like most other creatures has some means of de fense which we do not always appreci ate. A few years ago while watching a good size heron wading in the water of a pond, I was struck by its peculiar actions. Cocking its head on one side it listened and glanced up into the air, and then trembled all over. If it had taken fright at my appearance why did it not fly away? It was wondering at this peculiar action when suddenly a hawk circling in the air above darted downward in one of its swoops. The terror-stricken heron instead of flying away squatted down in the. water and looked up helplessly at the descend ing hawk. But the hawk did not seize its prey as I expected, but made a quick turn In the air and started to attack the heron from the other side. The latter merely turned its head around, always keeping its long beak directed full toward the approaching Keep the Kitchen Cool i Why swelter over a glowing range in a stuffy kitchen, when a new Perfection Wick Blue Flame Oil Cook-Stove will do the family cooking without raising the temperature enough to be noticeable?
