The target shoot on Washing ton's birthday between a toam repre senting the Blsbee Rifle club and another team representing the Na tional guard, picked from the valley companies, resulted in a victory for the visitors by a score of 988 to 941., The shoot attracted a good deal of attention and there was a good at tendance. On the average the Na tional - guard team did some good work, but the low score made by one man was largely responsible for the defeat. Three ranges were shot, 200, S00 and COO yards. The following scores by ranges - were as follows: BISBEE 200 BOO 600 Tarda Tarda Yards Lyons 40 46 29 Mitchell 38 44 45 Curry 40 49 34 Hawley 36 45 42 Hurst 3 42 39 Fisher 29 42 41 Watkins 40 42 41 McMinnle 43 44 42 Total 988 N.

Eggbcrt, whose critical Illness has been . mentioned from time to time within the past week, died yes terday morning at 1:43. Mr. Egg bert has been in rather poor health for aome time, suffering with what waa generally regarded as Blight's disease. - His condition, however, was such that up to a short time ago he was able to be about and do a good deal of business In his bicycle and shoe repairing store. Lei than two weeks ago be disposed of this busi ness and proposed to devote his time to poultry on his home place in Goldman's addition. But a few' days after selling out, the disease took a more acute . form and It wa sapparent from the first that there was no hope of his re covery. He' lingered for nearly a week though, suffering a great deal all the time. The funeral will be held this after noon at 2 o'clock from the home of the deceased. The services will be conducted by Rev. TL L. Creal of the Baptist church, and the interment will be made in the Double Butte cemetery. CATTLE SHIT OF . THIRTY CARLOADS A Special Train Load Went Out Sunday and Still More the Next Day. The largest shipment of cattle made from Tempe this winter went out over the M. A P. Sunday after noon. The shipmeat totalled thirty cars and the shippers were Hitch cock. Hoskins, McDonald, Jones and Pugh. With the exception of one car that went to Tuma, all the rest went to various Southern California markets. The 22nd another ship mcnt cf six cars was made by The Arizona Cattle company and Jones and Bouvler. This has been a fine year for the cattlemen. Prlcea have been good and the weather conditions have been such that the cattle did exceptionally well. The prices paid on these last two shipments varied between $4.3 and 34.75, depending largely upon the condition of the stock and the date of the contract, for most of these cattle were contracted at a certain price some months ago. While a great many cattle "have been shipped from the valley within the past month or so, there are still a good many more here. It Is roughly estimated that on this side of the river, alone, there are about 100 cars yet to be sent out. -Jones and Borler, alone, have about forty ears, and there are several other bunches of a like size, to say noth ing of many Smaller ones. BIRTHDAY CONCERT BY MERCHANTS' BAND It Drew a Large Attendance, Despite the Unpleasant Weather. The Washington's birthday concert by . the Merchants' band on the aft ernoon . of the 22nd,. was a pleasing affair and drew a large attendance. An improvise band stand was erect ed at the corner of Mill Ave. and 6th street, and from this, the band dis coursed sweet music for nearly two hours. The weather was not at all conductive to good playing, but de spite this drawback, the band did It self proud. It Is planned to give reg- ular concerts again as soon as the weather warms up a little. The following program was render ed yesterday: March, "Althea;" selection, "Moon light and Roses;" March, "Triumphs" waltz, "Silver Tone;" Polka, "Pietro;" march, "Sonadora;" serenade, "Quick Step Garland:" march, "The Ser geant Major;" gallop, "Elida;" march, "Albion;" waits, "Elsa;" over ture, "Elsmore."

Mr. Strong now has a half section in there and says It Is doing fine. There has been an abundance of water in that district this winter and the outlook for a good crop is considered good. A little difficulty was experienced by Mr. Strong in crossing the Gila at Florence with his outfit. The stream is still running somewhat high, but the crossing was effected without serious mishap.

I Mesa Department f A COLONIAL PARTY FOR WASHINGTON'S DAY The Anniversary Celebrated in an Ap propriate Manner. On Monday evening, the members of the Epworth League of the Methodist Episcopal church entertained at a typ ical colonial party at the hospitable home of Mr. and Mrs. G. L. Hutchin son, on Center street, in celebration of Washington's birthday anniversary Several of the receiving ladies wore costumes of the colonial period. The parlors were tastefully decorated In streamers of red, white and blue, which were draped from the ceilings across the corners of the rooms. Sev eral Interesting games furnished amusement for the guests, consisting of a guessing contest and others. De licious refreshments of mince pie, doughnuts and coffee were served. Quite a number of the leaguers and their friends were present and every one seemed to have a most delightful time. Among those who enjoyed the even ing were: Mesdamea Robert S. Long moor. K. L.

"LIEUTENANT AND COWBOY." A purely western military drama, combining both tragedy and pathos, and yet livened with exceptionally clever comedy, is "The Lieutenant and the Cowboy," the next attraction at the Mesa opera house. The play is hi the hands of Messrs. Felton & Smut zer's best traveling company. An elab orate and complete scenic investiture is carried for each of the four acts. The engagement Is for next Thursday night only and prices range front 25 cents to $1.-. This is a guaranteed high-grade attraction in every partic ular and must not be classed with cheap melodramas or repertoire shows. It is neither; but it is really a first class dramatic offering, as good, if not better, than anything that will bo seen here this season. A VERY SICK MAN. Ralph A. Chase Is very ill at the res idence of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Peter son, on East Main street. Mr. Chase, since his return to Mesa, has been oc cupying a position at Grover's place.

In Other Respects Also the Program Was Pleasing. The dedicatory exercises of the new Union high school were held in the building Monday afternoon. Governor Klbbey, Chief Justice Kent and Presi dent Mathews of the Tempe Normal, who had been invited as the guests of honor to speak on this occasion, ar rived here on the 12:40 train from Phoenix. Over one thousand persons attended the services and viewed the fine struc ture. The large assembly room was filled and a "arge number were com pelled to stand during the exercises, although the folding doors of the lib rary were throv.-n open, making the whole one auditorium. Large groups of people were gathered about the en try rooms. On the speakers' rostum were: Gov ernor Kiubey, Judge Kent, President Matthews, President of the School Bimrd G. W. filverthorn, who acted as master of ceremonies; the directors, J. W. Clark, J. T. Lesueur nad An drew Houston; the architect, Norman L. Marsh: Engineer Knipe: Superin tendent of the High School J. D. Lo per, O. S. Stapley, F. T. Poraeroy, Dr. J. K. Irane, George S. Irwin, editor of the Free Press, nad W. H. Hoghe of The Republican. Following the announcement of Chairman Sllverthorn, the Mesa or chestra rendered a short selection. In vocation was given by F. T. Pomeroy, which was followed by the song "Ari zona" by the pupils of the high school. Oo-ernor Kibbev was then introduced. GOVERNOR KIBBEY'S ADDRESS. In beginning his address, the gover nor stated that any excuse which he might have to offer for not making an address was overwhelmed by his sense of pride for what had been accom ylished, and his desire to pay tribute to so fine an Institution of learning, which was expressive of Arizona's spirit in the matter of education. Continuing, the speaker said. In part: "1 cannot refrain from an ex pression of pride when viewing such a structure as this, particularly when I remember that it was only a short time ago when Arizona had no such institution, and that a little over a year ago there were only five; now there -are eleven. I say I feel com pelled to give an expression of pride at a progress so marked as this has been. In attaining so marked an in crease In this grade of school, Ari zona has had to struggle aaalnst num berless conditions, against which American enterprise in this most es sentially American institution that of education alone has conquered. "Education has always been a prom inent feature In Arizona from the earliest times, and pioneer school houses have dotted Its 131,006 square miles. Last year, over a million dol lars was spent for education in the territory. It is fitting that on this the anni versary of the birth of George Wash ington, who typifies more than any other American the embodiment of an institution so distinctively American; no matter how much of a fable may be the account of the Incident recount ed in the boyhood life of Washington, when his father directed his attention to the plainly designed letters, 'G. W.,' In the flower bed, and the decisive an swer of young George, that he was positive that It could not simply have happened so; that some one must have planted the design; It illustrates a def inite American principle that things do not Just happen, and gives expres sion to that old, warm apothegm, 'Knowledge Is power,' which is even more true in this day and age than ever before." The speaker here cited many in stances which he used as Illustrative of thin adage, also emphasizing the fact that In the present-day life no man or woman was equipped success fully to combat with the conditions and problems of this age without at least a high school education, as in successfully meeting these conditions It was the man who knew, rather than the one with brawn and muscle, who must be depended on for a successful issue. That it was the man who knew why the placing of a rivet In a certain location in a steel frame work gave it a certain tensile strength, rather than the man who drove it there. In prac kTO.lMIfsHT nun nn MrMH ATI a. , . -. ta'ii-f liirf tically all of the great engineering feats this fast has been demonstrated again and again "Knowledge Is power." It was the power of knowledge that successfully combatted the almost irresistible force of quicksand, in constructing the Hud son river tunnel. The Germans were far ahead of us in the science of elec tricity. But we were the first to use it to run street cars, and operate elec tric lights. In the recent construction of an immense plant It was found by the German engineer In charge that a certain piece of machinery was abso lutely necessary to Its successful oper ation. This fact was explained to the owners, as well as the fact that he would have to send to Germany for it. He accordingly wired his firm to this effect, and received a return cable message to procure the required mech anism at Schenectady, N. Y., where it was manufactured. A high school education serves as a training course for a professional life, the arts and sciences, and for the field of endeavor in the commercial world. And it is most fitting that such an in stitution should be dedicated on this Kent, who was the next speaker, said that he had been much impressed in his examination of the new building by the arrangement of every department with a view to Its possible enlargement, when the occa sion demanded, thus showing that Mesa had builded not only for the time being, but, in a broader sense, had builded for the future. In a humorous vein, the Judge stated that he had only found one drawback In the construction of the building, and that was that a woman had no part In its planning. He said that as he had entered he had noticed two of the young ladies whom he supposed were students trying to push two large "merry widow" hats into the lockers. Continuing, Judge Kent said that in Arizona a larger per cent of the popu lation were of American birth, with American ideals, than in any other subdivision of the country. And that as such we should see to it that there were no backward steps in our present high ideals; that the movement should be a constant pushing forward. Professor Matthews of the Tempe Normal said. In brief, that the purpose for which the present beautiful struc ture had been reared was, for the most noble of causes, and one which he had been pleased to devote his life's work, that of the preparation of the present generation for the American citizen slJp of the future. And that in the el ements of education and the provisions for such. . were reflected the laws of the country; that, as Arizonians, we had a right to feel a pride In our school laws and the school system which Is at present better than that of any other state In the Union at the time of Its admission; that this condi tion was true In spite of many adverse conditions. Arizona stands in the lead, over one million dollars having been set aside for educational, purposes last year, which allows an expenditure of over 140 per capita. The growth of the high school system in the United States has been rapid, and the place it now fills was once furnished by the academy, the convent, and paid insti tutions of various kinds, most of which were denominational In character. In a recent visit to the Empire State he noticed that many of these had as sumed the appearance of decay. The course of four j-ears' training in high school work fits the student for the affairs of life. In many instances these enter colleges direct from this train ing, and the continual procession of high school graduates who are knock ing at the doors of our colleges. In 1906 there were four high schools in Arizona; now there are eleven. It would be only justice If our friends in Washington would investigate these conditions. Today Arizona is better prepared in this respect to enter the Union than any of its predecessors. After paying tribute to the earnest and praiseworthy work accomplished by Professor J. D. Loper and the growth of the schools under his direction, the speaker closed. Architect Norman B. Marsh, who designed the building, was called upon and made a few appropriate remarks. When he had finished. Professor J. WATCH FOR OUR GRAND OPENING. We will soon move into our new quarters with a full and complete line of goods for Men, Women, Misses and Children.
