Another action of the board was to give the building committee full power to act In modifying or adopting the plans for and in the construction of the Y. M. C. A. building. Building Committee Confers. At 1:80 yesterday afternoon there was a meeting cf the building com mittee, at which there was a careful study and discussion of the plans. A sub-committee was appointed to ex amine and verify all the "location" subscriptions to the Y. M. C. A., by which is meant those subscriptions tendered in furtherance of the move ment for offering the building lot for the federal building to the government at an attractive price. Other- sub committees were assigned to the work of listing and analyzing all the unpaid subscriptions to the regular building fund, to determine If any cannot be collected and how to best proceed for securing those that are accounted good. The result of yesterday's work along this line was most encouraging and the committee announces that It does not consider only a very email part of the subscriptions as uncollect able, and altogether the prospects for the building are taking on a brighter appearance than for months past.

Pharmacy " FAITH IN HUSBAND REV PERLEY W. .POWERS, .OF CHICAGO COMING TO PHOENIX Letters Received in Phoenix Exotie ate Clergyman and Apparently Dis close Blackmailing Scheme "Have convicted professional black mailer. Everything all right here. Leave as planned. Perley W. Powers." This telegram was received yes terday morning by Mrs. Perley W. Powers, 210 East Taylor street, wife of the Chicago clergyman whose mis adventures with Mrs. V. C. Boak Fenner has set the western city by the ears, and filled the columns of Chicago newspapers with the story. Mrs. Powers has been in Phoenix since last fall when she came here on account of her health. She was rIso here a year ago.. Perley W. Powers is the pastor of the Olivet Methodist church or cni- cago. He has had the pastorates of several Chicago churches ana rre viously to his entering the ministry was for twelve years a member of the Board of Trade. The nature of the charges against the clergyman ore somewhat vague. From documents which are printed below it would appear that an at tempt was made by a Mrs. Fenner to extort money from him on threats of publication of several letters whicn were written by the minister. The following purports to be a car bon copy of a letter from the captain of police of Chicago to the official board of the Olivet M. E. church. It was sent by Rev. Mr. Powers to Mrs. Powers who received it yester day. . The letter is unsigned. On the same sheet of paper, written In pencil is this note: "My dear Wife This is a carbon copy of a statement made by the captain of police who had th,e case in hand. My people are standingly me loyally." " The letter Is as folows: Ccicago, 111., Feb. 9. '09. To the Official Board Of the Olivet M. E. Church, Chicago, 111., Dear Sirs: I desire to state that In October last Mrs. V. C. Boak Fenner was ar rested at this station upon a charge similar to that for which she was prosecuted by Rev. Perley W. Powers yesterday. Upon questioning her last Sunday I found I had a very dif ferent person to deal with from the one formerly arrested. In her con versation she made In my office some terrible accusations against other men and made threats that she would ruin all the ministers she could. In securing her conviction I regard that Rev. Powers has done the public a great service and has made the character of every . clergyman In Chicago safer. I regard her as an unscrupulous and exceedingly dan gerous woman. She swore under oath that there was nothing wrongs be tween Rev. Powers and herself. Her testimony and her stories were un supported by a shred of evidence and I regard them as a pack or lies giv en and published for purposes of malice and revenge. They are there fore to be discredited. I further hold myself in readiness at any time to go before his church, official board, or superiors and do all I can in his Interests. Mrs. Powers has Implicit faith In her husband and is positive that he has not become entangled in any way with women. The suggestion that she. was practically a prison er here, as received by wire from a Chicago newspaper, was ridiculed by her. She says that she came here for tier health and is under the care of Dr. Dysart. The following letter received by Mrs. Powers yesterday from her hus band, makes his position in the mat ter fairly clear. Chicago. 111., Feb. 8-09. My Dear Wife: Your husband has been passing through a most severe trial In which he needs such comfort as can come only from the unshaken confidence of his wife to whom he is so com pletely devoted as you so well know. Yesterday he had prosecuted in court a woman for blackmail and secured her conviction. She Is a professional at the job and has been In court before for the same thing. She was Introduced ' to us by re sponsible people of our congregation. whe were sponsors for her and told me privately she was a great church worker. I have learned since they knew she was off color but boomed her In order to save her, and kept me , in Ignorance of her real characteV. They also asked me to do what I could to secure for her a standing In the city as an elocutionist by introducing her to the Methodist public This letter Involved somo correspondence of a perfectly proper sort which latter she made occasion for threats of extor tion. ' She wrote me two letters, when she found she could not use me for her purposes, (meanwhile I had an Inkling her character and I refused to stand for her with other clergymen) in which she made all sorts of false accusations and allegations, Insinuat ing If I did not pay her money she would publish them in the papers. the day she left for New York which wasto be soort. " After consultation with my lawyer I turned these over to the police who had her arrested and she was convicted yesterday. On the stand she swore there was nothing wrong between us, for which statement I have abundant proof. On the stand she also made many false statements for which she offered no proof and since the case is out of the court she has colored things still more to the reporters. ' I have gone over the entire matter with Judge Newcomer from A to Z and he says I have done - the right thing and the only thing, that ' it will not amount to anything etc The Police Captain also tells me he will meet my of ficial board at any time and exon erate me etc. But these expressions Big Cleanup Men's and Boys' Clothinj Preparatory to shewing our entire line of new Spring Clothing for Men and Boys; will have a "Big Clean-Up Sale" of Winter Suits and Overcoats.

During the day I shall get from the Police Captain a written state ment of the trial and the character of the woman which I shall preserve for the future as well as the present. He Is very indignant with the woman and camo to me at the close of the trial and said: "Dr. Powers, you have done more for the protection of clergymen. In the conviction of this woman, than any minister who has been In Chicago for years. There are many little side thoughts that I should like or might tell you off, but I'll not write them this morn ing. I have slept but little for two or three nights on account of this knowing how it . would involve you and the boys with me as well as the church. But I believe all will come well and know if the truth is told that aft will be well.

Extracts from a letter of a woman member of Power's congregation. Chicago, Feb. 9. Dear Mrs. Powers: You will no doubt be somewhat surprised to receive a letter from me but I feel it my Christian duty to write you In behalf of your good hus band; for If there ever was a good, pure and true devoted husband he is one. He has exercised such care in all such matters and ha even gone so far as to tell the janitor not to let any lady Into his study unless he come with her. This is not this froman's first case.
