There is very little time within which work can be lx-gun on the Buckeye railroad if the promoters are to avail themselves of the provisionsf the ex emption act which was passed express ly for the benefit of this enterprise. The time will expire on June 28. Another desperate effort Is to bo made, not without hope of success, to secure the necessary bonus and the necessary additional rights of way, and if this effort is met by encouragement the law will be complied with by the actual lieginning of work next Monday on some part of the right of way that has already been secured. The people of the Buckeye country have shown an appreciation of the benefits of the road to them and they have done what they could, , but the expected help has not come from points along the proposed line from Phoenix and other parts of the valley that would be benefited. The bridge controversy absorbed a good deal of popular attention at a critical moment and the warm weather coming on has interfered with the plans of the promoters. But they are yet hopeful that in the short time that remains they can secure enough more help to warrant them in proceeding with the enterprise! Ask Your Druggist For the Genuine DRAMATIZED TAX RATE IN GREATER NEW YORK Plan to Enliven Nw York Mayoralty Campaign City Aroused Over Charge ThatT School Children Are Victims of Alcohol. New York, June IS. (Special Cor respondence of The Republican.) Freak features promise to abound In the coming municipal campaign for the election of a mayor and other officers of Greater New York, which is already beginning to be discussed. While Dis trict Attorney Jerome, who Is gener ally regarded as one of the "possibili ties" under consideration by Tammany for the mayoralty nomination, has in troduced the novelty of a public debate with some four thousand or more of his constituents, other "dark horses" have sought to attract public favor by denouncing the police anJ. the present administration of the public service corporations. The prise for original ity, however, must be awarded to the group of reformers who are planning to attempt the overthrow of Tammany. The principal objective point of their attack is to be the alleged extravagance of the present city administration and the high taxes that prevail. 11 is rec ognized as a difficult matter to arouse the ordinary citizen to the pitch of ex citement necessary to bring about a political revolution by presenting the dry facts of a city budget, but some genius among the reform forces lias conceived the brilliant idea of drama tizing the tax rate an! presenting the production at various local playhouses for the more convincing impression of voters,. It is announced that this plan Is to be adopted and that the thrilling melodrama of the woos and adventure of Father, Knickerbocker and his beau tiful Borough daughters, the wiles and plots of the villain Tammany and the heroic rescue of the maidens by the champions of reform will be portrayed before the footlights during the late summer and early fall. New Yorkers, always pining for a fresh sensation, have taken kindly, even hilariously, to the proposed plan which promises to attract attention, even if it does not produce votes. If the new method of campaigning proves successful, it may result In an eruption of electioneering dramas with rival candidates for office playing the stellar parts. New York usually regards with com placency criticism of shortcomings in its manners, customs or habits of life, but It has been roused to very real In dignation this week by the charge mads by a physician in a public ad dress that 78 per cent, of the children in Its public schools were suffering in mental development from the effects of drinking: either on the part of the children themselves or on that of their parents. City officials, including the superintendent of schools, the head of the health department and officials of the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children, indignantly deny that any such state of affairs as is charged by Dr. McNichol exists among the school children. Re-ports of the schools fail to indicate a single instance of children showing the effects of drink, aiiJ an examination, of 10,000 children which is now being carried on to determine the truth or falsity of the charge shows that only a very small percentage of school children are allowed to touch even beer or light wines, and these are found chiefly among the foreign population, who are simply following out the customs of their native lands in this respect. Va rious scientists also have arisen to ask the offending physician who made the remarks . that have aroused Father Knickerbocker's ire how he explains the high grade of scholarship main tained In Germany, where it is a very general custom for boys and girls in their early teens to Join with other members of the family in drinking beer. So far no answer has been forth coming. The only consolation left to the professional gentleman who made the rash assertion is that he has suc ceeded in what many caustic rHtieu have failed to accomplish, that is in bringing down on his head the wrath of what is ordinarily the most indif ferent city in the country. In the discussion that has been go ing on here recently over the increased cost of living and its causes, the fact has been brought out that health Itself has Increased greatly in cost along with the other necessities of life. Con certed action on the part of the physi cians of the city has raised Hie pre vailing charge for the doctor's serv ices from $3 to ?r for the first visit, and from $2 to ti for succeeding calls. The members of the medical profes sion explain that they have been forced to take this action because they them selves pay more for everything that thev buy. Likewise, the cost of at tendance and supplies for invalids is steadily Increasing. The report of the Flower hospital, the leading Homeop athic Institution in the city, shows that the actual expense of caring for pa tients has advanced more than 3 per The Greatest Vaudeville Show Ever Given in Phoenix cent, during the past year, and the in- crease in some other institutions for , the sick is considerably greater. While this additional outlay is borne by the hospitals and not by their patients, it makes necessary increased, contribu tions to support these institutions and Is largely attributable to the increased cost of the keep and medicines of in valids. Added to the heavy advances In the prices of rents, foodstuffs and other items, in the cot of living, it Is discouraging to the New Yorker to learn that even sickness is a luxury that may soon be beyond his means. That American talent in the field of musical composition is not confined entirely to musical come.Jies Is shown by the success of a New Tork com poser, Henry" K. Hadley, in winning the prize offered by the National Fed eration of Musical Clubs for the best setting for a serious work. The other prize winner in this competition was also an American, Arthur Sheperd, for merly director of the Salt Lake City orchestra. Both these men received their musical education in the United States, being graduates of the New Kngland Conservatory of Music, at Boston. It is a curious fact that so much attention Is devoted to foreign artists and composers of the grand opera school in this country that the work of talentej native composers of ten passes practically unnoticed. A group of young Americans is coming forward, however, most of them of NTon- I.-, i r i , 1 1 ( m Intnr i , 1 1 j a 'i 11 i n ning tne recognition or tne foremost musical authorities on both sides of the Atlantic. It seems possible that in time it may cease to be necessary to import operas and opera singers ! from Kurope and the millions now de voted to this purpose every year may be expended on home enterprise, in ac cordance with the principles advo cated by Messrs. Aldrich and Payne. A figure unique In the church his tory of the city and. one of the Uurt professional representatives of the rapidly passing occupation of bell ringer, has just been lost to New York in the person of Albert Meislalim, who ever since 1879, that is for thirty years, has rung the chimes of the famous old Trinity church at every regular serv ice and on many special occasions. The last of these special occasions on which he played the c himes was when Theo dore Roosevelt set out on his African hunt. His selection for that occasion, given as the outbound steamer was abreast of the church,, was. "liuide me. Oh Thou Great Jehovah, Pilgrim to a Foreign Land." He has been asso ciated with many other famous hap .penings, having rung the chimes at the unveiling of the Statue of Liberty, the opening of the Brooklyn bridge, which was the first to connect Man hattan with Long Island, the celebra tion here of Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee, and many other events of na tional ami international importance. One duty every year which he never missed was the ringing out of the old year and the ringing in of the new, and for nearly a third of a century he has done this to the accompaniment of the tooting horns of the celebrating crowds in the street below. It is far from a sentimental reason, however, which has led to the retirement of Mr. Meislahm, for his great weight has made the climbing of the eighty-one steps to the keyboard of the chimes an almost impossible accompli' He was born in the shadow of Trin ity, which then was the loftiest struc ture in the city. Now its height is looked upon as insignificant. New Hope For the Hopeless. There is hope for the hopeless. Science has touched at last, with a treatment which gives signs of help where no help was Ijelieved to be, the dread locomotor taxia. In the city of Chicago two physi cians are now conducting a series of experiments they themselves claim their work to be but little more as yet which have met with so great a measure of 'success that, in spite of their desire to keep the matter quiet till greater certainty is assured, the news of it has escaped their guard. Cases of locomotor ataxia have been very greatly benefited. The doctors do not say they have accomplished Cures. They simply tell the inquirer that some of their cases look very promising and some of their patients have received great relief. And the fact that they are cautious in their claims and conservative in their state ments and that they are working with and through physicians already at tending cases brought to their atten tion is evidence at least of their desire to give to the world all that they dis covered. To the work of Dr. F. H. Blackmarr and Dr. K. S. Bailey is due the discov ery of the beneficial effects of a com bination of American mineral, newly discovered. "Treatment with this material by the rr.thod we have devised," Dr. Blackmarr slates, "seems to yield many of the good effects of radium treatment, without any of the bad, re sults. It Is far less costly and abso lutely safe. If a case of locomotor ataxia has not gone too far, we feel The BEH confident of giving great help. We have rerieved cases In the pain stage of the disease very 'quickly. I have one case of a man who has been so much helped that he appears to be on the road to a fair degree of recovery. It is too soon to make sweeping claims. We have been very severely criticised for saying as much as we have about the matter, but we are only relating just what has occurred. We have been much misquoted, however, and so our work and Its effects so far have been misunderstood. I have hopes for what we may be able to do but I do not want to raise any false hopes."

I believe it is true that I am the only successful candidate for the presidency who ever had extended judicial expe rience. Mr. Van Buren had been a surrogate or probate judge early In his carter, and Andrew Jackson, I believe did serve as a judge of the supreme court of North Carolina, but it was a very unimportant part of his life, and his service did not bring into the is sues of his campaigns any discussion of his work as a judge. Judge Parker, so far as I know, is the nly other candidate who had been for any number of yaers on the bench; and while there was some reference ARIZONA SUMMER RESORTS Commutation Books (five round trip rides), $25.00 per book.
