Mayor Dines Is in receipt of the following letter from L. C. Hill, su pervising engineer of the reclamation service: The Honorable Mayor and Common Council of the City of Tempe: Gentlemen In constructing a high tension power line extending from the Roosevelt dam site through the Salt Liver valley, it has been found desirable by the United States rec lamation service to locate a portion of this line within the limits of tiie city of Tempe, as indicated In the map herewith enclosed. It will be noted that it is proposed to enter the city limits on the right of way of the Maricopa, Phoenix and Salt River Valley railroad; extend the line along the right vf way in a northT erly direction and leave the city limits at the saddle of the Tempe buttes. We will very much appreciate any favorable action that may be taken by your honorable body in regard to granting the desired permission to locate the power line within the lim its of Tempe In the manner above mentioned. Very respectfully, LOUIS C. HILL, Supervising Engineer. As stated in the above letter it Is proosed by the government to run this line between the two buttes, crossing the river at that point and continuing on to Phoenix. The line has already been surveyed and to the city limits the steel towers have been placed, ready to be set as soon as the workmen reach this part of the valley. Mr. Hill's request will probably be acted upon at this even ing's meeting of the council. . Read Hyder's ad this morning. SUMMER SAND STORMS. The Season Has Arrived and Tempe Is Getting Its Share of Dust. The season of sand storms has ar rived and two nights in succession Temie has reaped the full benefit 1 of, two fearful dust storms. On both I occasions it looked for a time very much as if a little rain might fail , but it was all bluff in both instances and not a drop fell. A heavy wind i came up late Tuesday afternoon which did some little damage to awnings and trees. It was particu- larly severe Just ' out of town and WM.

CANT SHIPMENTS CONTINUE DAILY The Season at Its Height and Melons Are Loaded at All Hours. Three cars of cantaloupes were shipped yesterday by the Tempe as sociation, making a total of thirteen to date shipped thus far this year. The number will probably be some what reduced for the reason that hereafter pony melons will not be shipped, nothing going from this point but standards and jumbos. The order was issued to the growers ! Suerintendent Hanna, who had b-.n instructed by wire from the fVm's headquarters to fhat effect. The reason given for the order t: that the market is so filled with, melons. it is regarded as doubtful whether pony melons would pay shipping ex penses. The season In the Tempe fields Is now at : its height and melons are being loaded at the creamery siding at all hours of the day and night. The loading force worked until one o'clock yesterday morning loading cars. The extra work on the railroad due to the skipping of melons, has deranged the train schedules from time to time and late trains are not at all unusual. MAY BUILD HOUSES. A Tempe man who already has several cottages bringing him in a good income each month, is con templating the building of several more between now and fall. He has plenty of ground for building pur poses and rightly considers that there can be no better way of in vesting about 15.000 than in building cottages. That is Just what Tempe needs, for even now there is a good demand for medium priced places and when school opens In the fall, unless more are built Iwtween now and then, they will be at a premium. ADJUSTMENT MADE. Insurance Adjuster Chas. Peckham, who has leen spending the past sev eral days adjusting the loss of the Walter Johnston home, killed two birds with one stone. No sooner had he finished the Johnston adjust ment than he was called upon to adjust the loss of the M. E. church parsonage, which occurred a few days before. Like the other loss a very satisfactory adjustment was also made in this matter. GRADUATE'S MARRIAGE. Word has been received here of the wedding oT Miss Hattie Merritt to Wm. LePage.

Ambrose Skinner an old watermelon grower of this vicinity for the last quarter of a century, wishes that the government had always been as par ticular as it is now." He would then have less trouble In getting the amount of pension to which he thinks he Is entitled under the new law.' For eleven years he has been drawing a pension of $6 a month. Under the hitter law he made application for the increase allowed those of . advanced age amounting to something more than (20 a month. His application was al lowed for $12. on Die ground of un certainty regarding his age. Skinner wiio is a colored man claims to be eighty-four years of age and he looks every minute of it and then some. His hair and what beard he has been able t accumulate in some thing over four score years are as white as snow. Skinner was born in 1S24 in North Carolina a slave. In 1862" he was liv ing Virginia and was employed on some government works. With a lot of other colored men similarly employ ed he was put on a boat destined for Fortress Monroe as "cargo." They were not put off there but were taken on to' Norfolk where they were put In to the second storj o;f 'a Ufg building under guard." They Were' kept there for a month under training as soldiers and a little later they .were taken into camp where the drilling was contin ued. Subsequently they were put through a form of enlistment and sent to the front. After tire war. Skinner remained in the arm; -and was sent west. He was at variuus Ksts in this territory and elsewhere in the south west and finally he quit the service In 1874 at Fort Qulltnan.TTAas. He had determined that .when he should settle down it would be in Arizona. After his discharge from the army the re turned to Virginia but almost immedi ately came to this territory where he has since resided. He has had three enlistments. In none, of them was any inouiry made about his age and when he has ap plied for an Increase under the old age provision, he has been told that he '.'.""II have to produce a record of his birth. He has beeh advised by the bureau to secure a copy jf the church record. Skinner replies that he knows of no such record and he Is quite sure there is none for it was not the prac tice of the North Carolina slavehold ers In 1824 to have the births of the chattels recorded in church. His mas-' t r old Job Skinner probably had a record of births of slaves for his own use but he has been dead, sixty years and all of his sons were killed gti the battle of Manassas Gap. So far as Aniorose hKinner Knows there is no member of the family alive. He fears that if his white hair will not convince the bureau that he Is more than sixty-five he will have to worry along with his little old 12 a month pension, for sofhe years to come and he does nqt believe that In the course of nature there are many more years coming to him.

SIDEVVALK CAMPAIGN , TO pt INSTITUTED City Council and Board of Trad Re alize the Need of Improvements of This Sort. That there is need of more, cement sidewalks in Phoenix all will admit. The mud is seldom very deep for very long at a time, but the dust is aome-llpips-as. much ot.. .nuisance as the mud.' . SupV""'ng, neither, were offen sive there would still be need of side walks as they, are worth more .than their cost merely to add to the ease and Comfort 'of walk-in and for' their ornamental effect. Well laid and '.reg-' ular walks add to the value of proper ty, more than the cost of them, even if there is nobody to walk over them. But here in Phoenix there 1k blink after block where there is no sidewalk and where a greqt.deal of. walking i.i done. Many such blin ks can be point ed out even in what might Im called the business part of the city, though Washington street is pretty well pro vided except a part of the east end. But it would be worth while for Ad- ams and Jefferson and Monroe streets to be similarly treated,' and Just as many more as possible. Out in the residence districts good walks, are even more imperative for they are Just as imjMjrtant for the purpose of ap pearances, and more apt to be muddy in rainy weather and dusty in dry weather. Phoenix Is not ready to admit that Tucson is a better place to live, nor so good, for any natural reason, but in point of sidewalks Phoenix has to ad mit that the Pima capital has more miles of them and that they are one of the most attractive features of the city. It Is pleasing therefore to note that both the city council and the board of trade are giving this subject careful attention and fostering a movement for better sidewalks. At a recent meeting of the council ' an nouncement was made that on. any block where they property owners would build a sidewalk, the city would stand the expense of building the rec tangular sections at the block corners, that did not abutt on either the end or the side of the lot. The city also offers to build good crosswalks con necting any blocks that have been pro vided with side walks, and in addi tion will have the city engineer furnish the grades free of expense for any walks' built by any property owner. That is going as far as the city coun cil can see its way clear to do at this time, except to keep the matter alive and encourag property owners to get busy. There is one more phase of the situation it is proper to refer to here. It is quite often found by property owners when they seek to act In con cert with their neighbors on this mat ter, that they find one or two or mora owners of lots in a block, who refuse to build walks for one reason or an other. Sometimes they do not care to invest the money and sometimes they are lacking in civic pride, but what ever the cause the result is the same. Those who are desirous of building walks are in formed that there Is a way of forcing action. If two-thirds of the owners of lots in any block de sire a sidewalk built, all they have to do is to petition the council which will notify the backward property owners to build. If they refuse to do so the city may build the walks and charge the expense up as a lien on the proper- ey' -r The board of trade has a committee working on this matter and it is un derstood will try by moral suasion to induce at least two-thirds of the own ers in blocks where walks are most needed, to undertake a campaign of sidewalk building. o TRANSCRIPT OF RECORDS.
