When she is informed that she has assisted in the escape of her husband's murderer she takes a pistol, laughing wildly, and goes i out to Intercept the criminal in his i flight. She overtakes him. and has her revenge. The picture is of the highest dramatic order. Other numbers of the program that were well taken by the audlonce was the song, "Waiting." by Miss Lee, the Eastern Thrush, and the picture "Hank and Lank," a comedy picture. But it was the Illustrated song by Miss 'Hall that brought the house down. "My Rose from the Garden of Lovo" proved to be one of the most beautiful songs that had ever been rendered by this popular soloist, and the pictures were among the best that have ever been presented at the Wig wam. The program will be entirely changed this evening, and Manager Mullen announced that there are sev eral features on this evening's pro gram which will maKc it superior to any he has ever before given In his theater. Three shows, at the Wig wam, tonight. THE MAJESTIC. There is no reason to sit at home and fret trying to find some way to pass the evening when there are sueh excel lent shows being presented by the merry Teal company. "The Geezer from Geek" was the of fering last night and it had the audi ence in hysterics from the rise to the fall of the final curtain. The play is one of the best so far presented. The electric novelty in the form of a huge American flag, dropped at the close of the first act. filled the house with en thusiasm followed by wild cheering when a large electric star, the handi work of the stage crew, fell into its place beside the proud stars that desig nate her sister states. Tomorrow night the company will bid farewell to Phoenix, going direct to Los Angeles for a run of ten weeks. To night and tomorrow night Mr. Teal will put on a strictly high-class royalty pro duction. "The Telephone Girl." This is a show that has never been pre sented berorc in Phoenix and is posi tively a two-dollar offering. It is handsomely costumed and brim full of comedy and new song hits. In addition to tliis'Mr. Teal will again appear in his specialty of songs and stories. f AMUSEMENTS kl IPUf A ma t! The three big features of the show at the WIgwum last night were all appreciated by the audience which packed the house for all three per-' formances, but the second reel, named ' 1A Western Woman's Way" proved jnpre than ordinarily interesting even -to the regular patrons of the Wig- ' wain who have grown accustomed to seeing the best pictures In the world at" Manager Mullen's theater. "A Western Woman's Way" tells a pa .thetic story of abused hospitality, showing the terrible way a tramp had of rewarding a mountaineer's kind ness. The story of the picture is this: A disreputable looking man comes to a mountain cabin, and Is taken in by a man and woman, the proprietors of the house, who pity his desolate and forlorn condition, me man par takes of their hospitality, but his feeling of thankfulness Is lost In his greed when he sees that the owner of the house, the man who took him In, has a bag of gold nuggets ori his person. Outside the cabin the tramp murders his benefactor. Here the finest feature of the picture Is de veloped, for the wife of the mur-1 dtred man furnished a horse for the villain to escape, believing that he has murdered another man than her NEW AIRDOME TONIGHT. There was lots of excitement at the New Airdome last night, caused by the fine program shown and which will be repeated tonight. Isabcllc Stonehousc continues to car ry away the honors with her singing. She has proven the favorite of all who have filled engagements at that house. Her offering for tonight will be "Down Among the Sugar Cane," illus trated with beautiful slides. Among the pictures shown wer Rivalry at the Oil Fields." This pic ture relutcs a story of an honest work ing man who has an oil claim which In the beginning is worthless. The young man is in love with a girl who In the end proves to be a true friend. The girl has many admirers, among them Is a man who has untold wealth In oil stocks, who, through false means tries to secure the claim of the man who Is trying to make an honest living. The rich magnate succeeds in stealing the title to the poor man's claim which proves very successful. The girl being a true friend, catches the man stealing the papers and succeeds In getting possession of them and returns them to the owner. They are united in mar riage and all ends well, while the rich man dies poverty-stricken and dis graced. Other pictures are "Why Jones was Arrested." "Ostler Joe," "Daughter's Honesty," "True Indian's Heart." A matinee will be given Sunday at 2:30 which will positively be the last given at this house this season. COLISEUM. That funny team of comedians Coffman and Carroll will come to the Coliseum tonight with one of tho best vaudeville acts that has ever been presented In Phoenix. These two art- Ml Shoes for the Whole Family I have just put in a swell, up-to-date line of Strap and Low Shoes for babies, children and misses. They are from. some of the best manufacturers in America. Our Shoes for men and women, regular $3.50 to $6.00 qualities, for $2.50 to S3.50, are the manufacturers' best. Come in and see our new styles in Demi-Glaze Velvet and all the new leathers. The store that saves you money. w. . . fShdeslFor the Whole Family Ists have had a reputation for sev eral years as being among the bust that have appeared in the west, and they will a little more than sustain their old reputation this evening in their singing and talking act. Other important changes have been made in the program at the Coliseum, Matilda and Elvira appearing in a new Spanish singing and dancing act that will be a winner. Spanish dances and songs have been all the rago during the last year In the the atrical centtrs of the country, and there arc some individual features about the act put on by Matilda and Elvira this evening at the Coliseum that will make It notable and. an act to be remembered by Phoenix the atergoers. Sandow will present his same act introducing new features that will make it more appealing than ever. This act has been as highly applaud ed as any that has appeared on the boards at the Coliseum for several months, and It will be seen again with great interest by people who have already seen it one or more times. Tho program at the Coliseum for tonight Is strictly up to the standard, and when It Is announced that In addition to thete high class numbers there will be an entire change of pic tures, there can be no doubt of the place to go to see a good show and have a good time this evening. o E LITTLE EXCITEMENT Republicans and Democrats Will Nom inate Candidate for City Election Today. Owing to the prohibition agitation. there is even lc&s interest in today's city primaries than there would be un der ordinary circumstances. There is little to be decided. Regular republi can and democratic tickets arc to be nominated, nothing more. Before the independent democratic ticket withdrew from the field, about a week, ago, there was much speculation as to what would happen at the pri maries. The withdrawal of the indc pendants clarified the atmosphere to a great degree. Speculation as to what they and -the non-partisan league will do after the primaries is still rife, but today's events will serve to enlighten anyone on that point. Following the withdrawal of the in surgent democrats, strong pressure was brought to bear upon L. W. Coggins to induce him to head a ticket to be placed in the field by the independents and non-partisan leaguers. But Cog gins was mayor three years and hasn't finished resting up yet. He firmly de clined to be drawn into any more po litical entanglements, so the still hunt for a mayoralty candidate goes on. The democrats whl today decide whether John Connors or H. H. Linvllle is to be the party candidate for mar shal. Both names were placed on the regular ticket. It bein- left to the vot ers to say which should represent the party In the May election. Indications are that Connors will be successful. LInville's friends are pretty sore .be cause the central committee has been circulating bills bearing the names of all the party's primary candidates ex cept the man from Cave Creek. Con nors' name appears on the bills but not LInville's, so a deep, dark plot to shelve Llnville is scented. It is now certain that there will be two independent candidates for mar shal. John Fraley announced himself weeks ago and the rumor began to fly around that . W. Canning would be out for the office. These rumors were succeeded by others to the effet that Canning had withdrawn. Canning him self settled the matter yesterday by exhibiting his petition and stating that he would make the race unless he died or was assassinated. Following arc the polling places in the four wards today: First ward, 35 East Adams street; second, board of trade: third. 15 South First avenue; fourth, city hall. Marshal Moore announced yesterday that if there are any saloons left in Phoenix today, they will be closed from S a. m to S. p. m. GROWTH OF BUSINESS DURING PAST YEAR Phoenix Postoffice Figures Show an Increase of 16 Per Cent. The general receipts of the Phoenix postoffice for the month of March, ending . last night, amounted to J6.3G7.7i, as against J5.ti67.71 for the month of March, 1910, an increase of $700 or over 12 per cent. That is a pretty good showing, but the show ing for the estimate year is still better. The estimate year ends March 31, being different from the calendar year or the fiscal year, a particular year created by the postoffice de partment, upon which estimates arc made annually for the changing of salaries and some other routine mat ters, if tho figures suggest action, so the salaries, etc., may begin with the fiscal year. Tho .estimate year ending last night showed the receipts of the post office for the past twelve months to have been $73,702.08, as against $63. 612.55 during the estimate year ending March 31, 1010. That is an Increase of $10,090.43, or 16 per cent In excess of the receipts for the year before. These figures mean nothing ex cept as an indication of the growth of the business of the office. What is meant by that is that the Increase Is not sufficient to give the office a new rating, though a similar increase another year will add one grade to tlie salary of the postmaster. It is now a first-class postoffice and has been for several years, but there are numerous grades of first-class offices. Attention Is called to another thing. and that is that an Increase of 10 per cent over the revenues now re ceived In point of percentage means a great deal more than 10 per cent in the case of a small office, for it has not been many years since the entire business of the office in one year did not aggregate any more in dollars than the mere Increase during the past year. o SEWER SYSTEM IS A PAYING PROPOSITION Rentals Will More Than Pay Interest on Purchase Pr?ce, Monthly Payments and Main tenance Costs. The accounts of tiiel'hoenix Sewer & Drainage company show that when the city purchased the local system it did not invest In a financial white elephant. Sewer rentals will more than pay for operation, . interest on the purchase price and a monthly in stalment of $500, which the city Has bound Itself to make. When F. A. Lack, head of .the sew er company and practically the exclu sive owner of the system, sold to -the city he voluntarily gave up & monthly income of $500. Under his manage ment the sewer was one of the best paying business propositions: In the city. When Mr. Lack bought the system, about four years ago. it was not paying. This however, was mainly through minmanagement. Connections had -been made and forgotten. A large number of patrons were receiv ing service and paying nothing there for. Mr. Lack changed all this and as time went on many new connec tions were made, both because the city was growing; and . because the citizens were awaking to a greaic realization of the necessity of sewer age. When he sold to the city the monthly rentals totaled $934. Under municipal ownership It will not be long before they reach $1000. for there were some who did not wish to connect with a system owned by. a private corporation. Now that the city owns the sewer they are per fectly willing to connect. The expenses of operation and .CENTER ST. j I l 9$t V'y flH IH Naa i,'v,'"i,i tpPl w' JBi ' .

It cost the Phoenix Sewer & Drain age company about $125 a month. but this sum included the salary of a collector and other expenditures which the city will not incur. A suf ficient sum Is charged for each new connection to pay for it. The books and accounts are to be handled by the city water department at no ex tra expense and patrons will have to call at the city hail to pay rentals. Interest on the purchase price of $60,000 amounts to $300 a month. This, with the monthly payment on the principal of $500, makes $800 which the city must pay every month out of the collections. Over $100 will be left over and above all expenses and payments. Today the formal transfer of the system to the city will be made. As a matter of fact, it has been under supervision of Superintendent V. A. Thompson of the water department for several days and the books were transferred to the water office about two weeks ago. All bills have been made out and rentals must be paid by the tenth of the month, the same as water rentals. o FIRST PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH Services tomorrow.
