M'M"l"H"l"M l"M i; ll'W"MrW SOUTHEASTERN ARIZONA E Towns Are Growing Railroads Are ' Building and Prosperity is Evident On All Sides. w The writer returned yesterday mornintr from a hnsfnoKs and measure trip to different points in the south ern part of the territory. The trip in cluded a visit to nearly every town of any size In that section of Arizona. It was noticeable that everywhere a general condition of prosperity seem ed to prevail. Business appeared to be good and the residents of the va rious towns were satisfied and confi dent of even better times to come. At Clifton and Morenci the chief .topic of conversation these days is of dividing Graham county. The resi dents of those two places, as well as of Metcalf and Duncan, are strongly in favor of forming a new county of the : eastern half of Graham county. The reason of this is obvious. It takes a full day to Journey from any one of these four places to the county seat at Solomonville and another day back. If one has any business to transact, that takes part of another day; consequently the trip can not be made in less than three days. Be side this, there are many other rea sons why the residents of that sec tion desire a change and all of these reasons appear on a petition that has been signed by practically every voter of that district. This petition is in the hands of a committee from that section now in Phoenix where the matter will be brought to the atten tion of the legislature. Last week at Morenci some little snow fell and the writer enjoyed the novel sensation of making tracks in a couple of Inches of snow Sunday morning. Both Clifton and Morenci have made substantial advances with in the past few years and additional improvements are In progress at both places. A stop of half a day was made at Tombstone. It was noted there that with the exception of one or two, all of the teachers in the public school were graduates of the Tempe normal. As a matter of fact, that same condition pervails In nearly every town In the suothwestern part of the territory and in every In stance, the teachers give most satis factory results. Bisbee is a 'ter, a larger and a more thrifty town than ever. The city has nearly outgrown the re sults of its recent dlsosterous fire and little evidence of the conflagra tion is now in sight. The new town of Warren, really a suburb of Bis bee, is a handsome placo. It is con nected with the main town by an electric line. Douglas is growing larger day by day and Is . now ono of the mosJ modem cities in the territory. Be ing a newer town, it is probably the most modern. That is the way it strikes the visitor for there are no old style and partly dilapidated buildings to be seen. Every thing is new. Much interest is displayed in Douglas, as well as in- Bisbee and Tombstone, over the opening of the new town of Courtland, between Pearce and Douglas. Railroad work is now In progress from Pearce to the new place and the residents of Douglas feel confident that within a very short time the Southern Pacific will reach the border town. The purpose of the writer's visit to Douglas' was to close up the business affairs of the late Henry Schmidt. In so doing, he came In contact with a dozen or more df the most prominent men in town. With out an exception each of these ex pressed the profoundest regard for the young man. Not a man in Doug las had more friends than he. As a mark of respect and as an illus tration of the regard in which Mr Schmidt was held here. It Js re lated that on the day of Aie funeral here, the flag of the Country club, the most prominent social organiza tion there was draped at half mast. While from the above It Is appa rent that this southern part of the territory, is progressive and prosper ous, it must be stated that it- does not begin to compare with the" Salt River valley In the writer's estima tion. A trip of that kind has the effect of making one feel more and more pleased with a town such as Tempe, where the climate is more equitable, where things grow the year around and where the general aspect of nature Is far more pleasing to the eye. i:l EXTENSION OF TAX LIMIT An Acti on of the City Council Last Wednesday Evening. A special meeting of the city council was held Wednesday evening for the purpose of receiving the re port of the tax collector. Marshal Brown reported that only about 1150 was yet unpaid and delinquent." With the hope . of collecting this amount and thereby avoiding the necessity of instituting delinquent proceedings, the time . was extended until . the. next regular meeting of the council, .the second Thursday in March. It is -expected that by that date every thing will be collected. - . , SENIOR RECITAL Under the auspices of the Senior class of the Normal, Miss Frances S. Bell ot . Richmond,.

YiNOL CORES CHRONIC COUGHS, COLDS AND BRONCHITIS After Other Remedies Fall "I have been troubled with a chronic cold and bronchitis for a lone; time and have tried many remedies without finding relief. Through the kind sug gestion of a friend I tried 'Vlnol,-and after taking four bottles, am entirely cured." A. H. Wilde, 733-8th Avenue, Minneapolis, Minn. 6. McDonald, 147 W. Congress SL Paul, Minn., writes: "f con tracted a severe cold last winter and thought I would never get rid of It I tried Vinol as a last resort, and It has completely cured me." Vinol combines two world-famed tonics, the healing, medicinal proper ties of cod liver oil and tonic Iron, de llciously palatable and agreeable to the weakest 6tonmch. For this -reason, Vinol Is unexcelled as a strength builder for old people, delicate chil dren, weak and run-down persons, af ter sickness and for Chronic Coucha, Colds and Bronchitis. VINOL Is sold in Phoenix by A. L. B0EHMER, DRUGGIST, BROKEN OAK THREE DEAD Fatal Accident at Granite Reef SWEPT THROUGH THE SLUICE Mexican Laborers Who Be coming Panic Stricken Had Leaped From the Boats Conveying Them Across Lake Martin.' A telephone message was received here late Wednesday saying that a boat had capsized near the head gates and three men had been drowned. Yes terday morning Acting Coroner Irwin left for tho scene of the accident and held an inquest over the bodies of the three drowned men, who were Mexican laborers in the employ of the govern ment. There names were Erlberto Trasvina, Romaldo Leon and Antonio Durana. Leon was from Tempe, where he has relatives. Trasvina came to the oamp from Fuerte Sinoloa, Mex. Du rana was a blacksmith of Phoenix. His family was at the reef at the time of the accident, which was due to the breaking of an oar. Soon after the day's work two boats, each containing eight men, started across the lake formed by the dam, from the north to the south side. Hardly had they got under way when an oar of one of the boats broke, causing the two crafts to come to gether with a Jolt. This frightened the men in the first, causing some of them to stand up. Durana called for them to sit down and be quiet and all would be well. One, however, sprang into the water, causing the boat to rock and ship water, which so badly frightened the others that three more followed. The boat was overturned and the strong current carried both the men and the boat toward the sluice gate, through which the water is re turned to the river. R. C. Ochoa suc ceeded in catching' hold of the Iron casing and drawing himself out of the water. The others were drawn through the gates. Durana and Trasvina were found clasped in each others' arms, Durana having a. scar on his head, showing where It had struck the gates in passing through. He Is a man of powerful build and it is thought the blow stunned him so that he lost con sciousness. The body of Leon was taken from the river several feet be low. Clark was pulled out by those on the banks and the others succeeded in getting out of te water themselves. PHOENIX PIONEER BAND CON CERT. Friday evening.
