As all three had been baptized there is now much confusion as to which name belongs to which child. The more serious legal diffi culties, however, arise from the fact that one of the children having been named after his grandfather was made his heir. As the grandparents Is now unable to determine which of the three was the beneficiary under his old will he ha made a r.ew one in which none of them are remembered. As a re sult of this the parents of the chil dren have brought suit against the street car company for a sum equal to the inheritance, claiming that it is up to the traction people to reimburse the child for its loss. Altogether the mat ter, if it comes to trial, promises to develop into one of the most compli cate! procedings in the history of the city. Notes A. H. MILLER.

R?sx B -L THE POSITION OF They Are Not Antagonistic to the Railroads USE OF A ' A Letter From Commissioner Franklin K. Lane Suggest ing Organization of Such a Body For the Formulat ing of Complaints. A committee of representative busi ness men of Phoenix and the south side, members of the Arizona Commer cial Association, called on The Repub lican office yesterday to make known their position with regard to the rail road legislation. They said that they were in no way antagonistic to the roads; they de sired no legislation which would ham per them, and especially they were asking for ho legislation on the sub ject of fares and rates. A commission they believed, though, would be useful in formulating com plaints to be filed with the interstate commerce commission. That work of course could be done by a shippers' association, a board of trrfde or other organization, but in that case the ex pense of the organization would have to be borne by its members, while in the case of a commission the expense would be distributed throughout the territory, and, besides, greater har mony of action would be secured. As to the legality of such a com mission, the gentlemen said they had been informed by Commissioner Franklin K. Lane, to whom Traffic Manager Jones of the Maricopa Coun ty Commercial club had written, in quiring what powers if any could be vested in a territorial commission. The reply" of Commissioner Lane is indicated in the following second let ter to him by Mr. Jones: December 31, 1908. Hon. Franklin K. Lane, Commissioner, Washington. Dear Sir: Our directors have re aucsted me to thank you for your fa vor of November 14th concerning an Arizona territorial railroad enmmis' I slon and to sav: That your letter has made it olear to them that a legally constitutedytom mission cannot be created in a 'terri tory with power to fix rates, and since that is a fact and the interstate com merce commission can only act when complaint is made, the necessity still exists foe a comprehensive scheme of inquiry and investigation. In your opinion, could a bill be framed creating a commission that would do for the territory what this club is trying to do for the Salt river valley, namely, formulate and present to the interstate commerce commis sion complaints where conditions seem to lustlfy it? Our idea is for a commission, rail road or public sen-ice, or whatever would be appropriate, which would fairly and justly investigate local com plaints and, if a basis existed, present the same to the interstate commerce commission for adjudication. In order to act intelligently this body would require reports and tariffs of carriers, and the question is wheth er a bill can be formulated giving a local commission this authority. Different localities in the territory are moving in the direction of com plaints to the interstate commerce commission, while others more bur dened seeVn helpless in the matter of presenting their disabilities, and it is , ' I OUR ANNUAL SALE OF SILKS takes place todav One hundred pieces or more in plain 19-inch Chiffon Taffeta," which include all the new shades; 24-inch Crepe de Chines in evening and street shades, and 19-inch fancy Dress Silks, mostly cxclu- pitucrus. o two anKc in tne ioi wonijr icss man boc and most all are and $1.25 eroods.

Jones, Ksq., Traffic Manager, Maricopa County Commercial Club, r Rooms 2 and 3, 'Lewis Bldg., Phoenix, Ariz. Dear Sir: I beg to acknowledge re ceipt of your favor of December 31 re questing Commissioner Lane's opinion as to the propriety of creating a tec torial commission with power to in vestigate local complaints and, 'if deermrd advisable, present the same to the interstate commerce commission. Commissioner Laneis at present on his way to California, where he Is scheduled to hear a number of im rortant cases. -Before his departure he directed me"o advise you that ho knows of no objection to the creatum of a territorial commission wth such powers as you outline. In fact the act to regulate commerce itself would seem to contemplate the creation of territorial commissions. If you will refer to the latter part of section 13 of the act, you will note the provision that "said commission shall in like manner Investigate any complaint for warded by the railroad commissioner or railroad commission of any state or territory." Mr. Lane directed me to express to you his hope that such a commission as the people of Arizona desire mny soon be created, and that it may at the same time be the commission of a sovereign state. Very trulv yours, ALLAN P. MATTHEW.. Secretary to Commissioner Lane. "FRAUDS UPON THE PUBLIC Is what some ihysicians have called patent medicines, and it is undeniably true that some" are frauds and some are even worse,, because they are in jurious. On the other hand, there are many patent medicines such as Lydia B. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound, and others, which are of real worth, and ,11 re recom mended by physicians of recognized standing. BYLAWS AMENDED . r. 1 1 Board of Trade Decides Not to Accept Representation' in Commercial Club Association. S There was a short but quite impor tant meeting of the board of trade directors yesterday afternoon. The first subject taken up vas the report of . the transportation committee, to which had been delegated full power to act In the matter of the propriety of the board being represented at the meeting of the commercial clubs ear lier in the week when a territorial as sociation was formed. After- hearing and discussing the report, the board passed a notion that it was not de sirable for the organization to be rep resented in the commercial club asso ciation's directorate. The board felt that its co-operation was not desired and that It could serve no good pur pose by availing itself of that privilege. The committee on membership re ported progress and was given fur ther time. Probably the most important matter rT the day was the amending of the board of trade by-laws to insure the selection of capable directors at the annual meetings, who are not only' in accord with the "board's work but who latest designs.

Under the amendment a member is not eligible to the office of director unless he has been a member of the board one year or more, nor Is a member eligible to vote at the annual meeting unless he' has been 'a member for three months or more. In the matter of voting, the board also ruled that but one member of a firm could vote on the firm's membership. That is to say, if the firm of A & Ii holds a membership the firm can cast but one vote, unless one or both members also hold indi vidual membership.'. This ruling was made In view of the rapid approach of the annual election, when, if there should prove to be a large attendance, some controversy might arise that it would be embarrassing to settle on such an occasion. By making the rul ing now it will be understood in ad vance. L. If. Chalmers addressed the board at length concerning a railroad pro ject, the full details of whfch are pfnti'd elsewhere.
