Before it is M3B CashS THE AUCTION OF PROPERTY Was Not Satisfactory to the Owners THE PRICES TOO LOW Though Most of the Lots Averaged Six Dollars a ! front Foot-Not All Sold. In a way the auction sale of prop erty by the Tempe Land and Im- provement company yesterday was a j disappointment and in another way it .was quite a success. While not near ly all the property was sold, all that facing 8th street east of the Baptist ! ; church and that fronting the normal as far south as 9th street was dis- ' posed of and some other lots in the-' interior of the plat The property j facing 8th street averaged about six ; ! dollars a front foot, comer lots of course 'going a little higher than that, i While that figure may be all the -land i is actually worth, based on a compar J ison of other recent property sales, I it was reasonable and those who : bought may consider themselves fort unate. The attendance was not nearly as ; large as had been anticipated, but ' nevertheless there were a number of ; north siders in evidence. The sale opened at 10:30 In the morning, though the people first congregated down town. A parade was formed ! there, the Indian school band in the lead, followed by the populace on foot, in rigs and automobiles. The march was taken up to the first lot east of the Baptist church and the sale opened. This lot sold at a little better than $300 while those between It and the next street east went a few dollars under two hundred. When I ever a lot was sold, the band render- ed a selection and- between time a five dollar gold piece was given away to thi holder of the winning ticket By noon, most of the property in that bfock Jiad been disposed of and an adjournment was taken until after lunch. A free picnic dinner was served by the company and done full justice by the people attending. After the noon hour, the sale was again resumed with a better demand than in the morning. The corner lot directly west of the new normal building went to Prof. Matthews at $405. Other buyers during the day were Dr. Alexander, Walter Wilbur, A. J. Peters, Niels Petersen and many others whose names were not learned. It is hoped tomorrow to be able to publish a complete list of the many purchasers. Geo. N. Gage of the company was sick in bed yesterday and not able to be present. L. W. Blinn of Los An geles came here expressly for the pur pose ' of being on hand at the sale. Asked yesterday how he regarded the auction, he replied: "The sale is dis appointing to use both in point of attendance and in the selling price of the property. This land would bo cheap at $8 a front foot, but in re sponse to the demand of the people.

The lots that we do not dispose of today, we will sell by some other method; exactly how, or at what figure, we have not yet decided." .The only accounting for the situa tion is that there was not sufficient demand for property. The terms could not have been more generous. Mr. Getsinger, the auctioneer, did the best he could with the crowd on hand, and considering everything, his end of the sale was well handled. HIGH SCHOOL TEACHERS . HAVE BEEN RE-ELECTED AND AN ADDITIONAL NEW - IN STRUCTOR. The Faculty Will Be Completed at a Joint Meeting of the Two Boards. The last regular meeting of the Union high school board was held at the country home of W. A. Moeur, a member, by reason of the fact that Mr. Moeur was laid up with an attack of rheumatism and unable to get to town. The other members at first P"1 "P a rtrong objection to having a board meeting so far from town, but auer me evening was over ana tney naJ enjoyed Mr. Moeur's hospitality, they quite agreed that the trip was worm- tne while and are seriously considering holding all their future meetings there. . The meeting was held for the pur pose of engaging teachers for the ensuing year. The present teachers were re-employed, with the exception of B. . li. Scudder, the superintendent. That position will not be filled until a Joint meeting of the high school and public school boards is held in May. It is entirely probable, how ever, that Prof. Scudder will be re elected, as he has given splendid sat isfaqtlon and considering the disad- vantages with which he has had to contend, has placed the high school on a good firm basis. The selection of a manual training teacher will also be deferred to the joint meeting, as he will teach in both Institutions. ..The... commercial teacher, however, "was selected, though he has not yet signed a contract. He is Karl Mc Murry of Mammoth, Ills. Mr. Mc Murry is a man of broad experience in this line of work, has some very valuable connections in the education al world and sends recommendations which are of the very highest. Mr. McMurry comes of a family of teach ers. He Is a nephew of Charles Mc Murry, author of a series, of books on pedagogy now in use at the Normal; and on his mother's side he is a nephew of Elmer E. Brown, United States commissioner of education, with headquarters at Washington, D. C. With a broad general education and ia special training gained in the teaching of nothing but commercial subjects for the past five years, Mr. McMurry will make the commercial course one of the strongest in the school. , TIN CANNED THE TRAIN The bride and groom, Mr. and Mrs. Gregory, left on Wednesday evening's train' for Mexico, and were given a hearty . farewell by their Tempe friends. An abundance of rice was utilized to the best advantage and the train was tincanned. Half a dozen- oil cans were attached in such a manner that they just reached the ties. As the train pulled out, the last sound that could be heard was the bang of these cans. ' MORE CROSS WALKS. The cross walks on Main street are now being put in. The one on Sixth street is half completed and the one on. Fifth was started yesterday. In order not to delay traffic, these walks are put in half at a time, as it would j be otherwise necessary to close the street. STOP a Word! for boys, well worth 40c. too Late tore REPLY TO A LETTER IN YESTERDAY'S PAPER In Which Some Desired Information Is Given on the Bridge Matter. Referring to the letter in yester day's paper by Mr. Goodrich, in which he expresses a desire for information, the Tempe bridge committee has sub mitted the following reply. The county engineer, acting under instructions from the board of super visors, has made profiles of both the proposed locations and at the present time six of the largest bridge com panies of the United States are draw ing plans on the data furnished by the county engineer for bridges at both locations. These plans will probably be given to the public in a few days or at least as soon as the board of supervisors make them pub lic We want to correct the statement by Mr. Goodrich that the people at Tempe voted against a bridge that would carry a street car line. When the representatives of the company. who have planned the only bridge that the committee Mr. -joodrich rp resents, asked what kind of a bridge we would like to have them make plans for they were told to make plans for a highway bridge without a street car line. This after they hud assured us that a bridge for a car line would cost twenty-five per cent moie. By getting these plans we could get an estimate on either type of bridge and not have to be continu ally changing our estimates as the advocates of the other site have been til ing and will probably continue to do up t- the time o.. the election. 'Ihis qustion of ty -e is entirely in the hands of the boar.l of supervisors and what we want or what Mr. Heard and l is friends ?-ant has nothing t . w'r the question. Y i are not t!i .'ol.lniB rower in tni. question. Jt tlil M--fi! y plea-e h- adv .cat-" the largest bridge in the world how- to 1 mw th it the National Bridge Co. is making plans for a bridge of the same type at Tempe that was planned for Center street heavy enough to carry a street car line. This on data furnished by the county engineer. We want to call the attention of the taxpayers to the fact, however. that the National Bridge Co., hav nnt.-nts on many of the details In their type of bridge and bi;t an other ciinoai.y bidding on tln'r pl-ms are compelled to pay 10 per cnt royalty. This eliminates competition in the bidding. The representative of the Missouri Valley Bridge Co. has assured us that a bridge at Tempe will cost about $55,000' for a permanent steel highway bridge build to -conform with the data furnished by the county engineer, Mr. Gus Strietz. We will have all "the plans and Information that you may desire in a very few days, both as to cost and type for a substantial bridge at Tempe and at Heard's ranch. TEMPE BRIDGE COMMITTEE. Last chance at cotton wood, $4 per cord. Yard closes April 30th. Fred Marsh. BE HOME IN JULY Word has recently been received from Tom Sing, one of the best known celestials In the valley, that he is drawing his visit in China to a close and early In June will depart for Tempe. Tom left here last July and according to the terms of the immigration law, he must be back by the first of that month. The restric tions placed upor Chinese will work a great hardship upon him, for shortly after his arrival in China, he took un to himself a wife. It will be impos sible for him to bring his wife back with him, so when he returns it will be alone. Do you use any lemons this hot weather? Wo have them; good qual ity, 6c. per dozen by the box. F.

M. Mullen returned on the morning train and in the afternoon, Mr. and Mrs. Geo. A. Dobson came back. . All re port a most enjoyable and profitable session of the lodge. Tempe fared well in the election of officers for Mr. Nielsen returned with the honor of grand master of the ter ritory. He says that there is a slight possibility of the next session 'being held here, though it has also - been said it will be held in Phoenix." This matter has not been fully decided up on yet, however. If it appears that Tempe can offer suitable accommo dations for the visitors that week,, a strong effort will be made to land the next session here. The visitors in Tucson, according to the Tempe delegates, were accorded a most generous- welcome. Everything possible was done for their comfort and pleasure. SPECIAL REGISTRATION On .Account of the Special Bridge Election. The supervisors having called . a special bridge election to be held on June 10th, a special registration -is also required and only those who .are thus registered will have a vote. Jus tice of the Peace E. P. Carr Is now engaged in taking this registration, and every voter in this section .who was on the last tax roll should, make it a point to see Mr. Carr and regis ter. Only those' on the last tax roll of the county will be entitled to a vote, therefore it is useless for those not on the roll to register for this election as it only makes confusion and expense to the county. This registration will close on May 20th, and between now and that time Mr. Carr will be found at his new office in the council chambers. Tempe voters should make it a special .point to register for every vote will help just that much. - - NOTICE TO THE QUALIFIED VOT ERS OF THE CITY OF PHOENIX.
